Weekend Box Office: Between The Rock And 'A Quiet Place'

Rampage Scares Away A Quiet Place to Win Box Office with $34.5M

However, the news is still excellent for the John Krasiniski-Emily Blunt horror flick, which scared up a more-than-respectable $32.6 million in its second week.

Critics were mixed about the "Rampage", giving it a 51 percent Rotten Tomatoes score. But again, with a massive budget like that, Rampage needs a good showing overseas to make a profit, and it's doing just that, eyeing a $50 million opening in China in addition to performing well in other overseas markets. But audiences who went to see the film on Friday night quite enjoyed it, giving it an A- on CinemaScore.

"Because it's a movie about a family that needs to remain quiet, this is such a flawless atmosphere and one of the best scenes to tell the rules of how to remain quiet, what happens if you don't", Krasinski says in the video. That figure brings the movie's domestic total to about $100 million after 10 days in theaters. A strong rating like that suggests positive word-of-mouth, which may help the film do well into its second and third weeks.

We also take a look at the box office prospects of Avengers: Infinity War as well as those of this weekend's new releases, Dwayne Johnson's actioner Rampage and Blumhouse's horror movie Truth or Dare. Steven Spielberg's film grossed $33 million overseas this weekend, which should push it cross the $500 million mark this coming week; the current global estimated cume is $474 million.

Bayern hit back over 'outrageous' Kovac claims
Bayern Munich have announced Niko Kovac will take charge of the German champions after the end of the season. Kovac is described as a team player, addressing the need to get along with the club's leaders.

In third is Universal/Blumhouse's "Truth Or Dare", which made $19 million in its opening weekend from 3,029 locations.

Ready Player One, which gave up Imax screens to Rampage, fell 54 percent over the weekend to $11.2 million for a domestic tally of $114.6 million.

The latter is nonetheless on track to top the full weekend chart. Pacing for $18-21 million in receipts, the film should keep its #3 position for the weekend.
