'Rampage' Rocks International Box Office With $114 Million

'Rampage' Rocks International Box Office With $114 Million”

The film pulled in a disappointing $32M (Dh117.5M) on its opening weekend in the USA - some way off the $40M early tracking had hoped for - and could only manage second place at the box office behind John Krasinski's surprise hit horror A Quiet Place, which retained top spot for a second week. That was still behind expectations, however. 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. The film scared up $19 million for a third place launch, a fine opening given the movie's lower budget, but not quite the same level of success as, say, Get Out.

"Ready Player One" follows in fourth with $11.2 million (cume now $114.6 million), while a second weekend tally of $10.3 million positions "Blockers" in fifth place (cume now $36.9 million).

Directed by Brad Peyton, the movie starring Johnson as a primatologist who bonds with George, an extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who turns into a raging monster, minted $3.1 million here plus an estimated $US34.5 million in the U.S. and $US114.1 million internationally.

A big reason for that is because of the movie's star, Dwayne Johnson, who is one of the few actors in today's Hollywood who bring audiences to the theaters.

"A Quiet Place", in its second week, took in a healthy US$32.6 million, buoyed by rave reviews. The movie fell a scant 35 percent.

The supernatural thriller - hitting theaters on Friday the 13th - revolves around a group of spring breakers who play an innocent game of truth or dare that turns deadly. The raunchy comedy from Kay Cannon accumulated $10.3 million in North America this weekend, with a worldwide total of $52.9 million. Directed by Jeff Wadlow, the film stars Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey. Decent debuts by Truth of Dare and Isle of Dogs plus remarkably strong holdover business for Peter Rabbit and A Quiet Place helped keep cinemas busy.
