Rampage Stomps To The Top Of The US Box Office

16 April 2018

On Friday afternoon, New Line's Rampage appeared to be dropping like a rock at the USA box office, with first projections suggesting the big-budget movie might not earn much more than $28 million in its launch.

Dwayne Johnson's arcade game-inspired Rampage crept past last week's top film A Quiet Place to take the No. 1 spot on the box-office charts, but just barely.

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. That figure brings the movie's domestic total to about $100 million after 10 days in theaters. Rampage made $114.1 million from worldwide markets this weekend, for a total of around $148.6 million. The film has added about $51.7 million from foreign markets.

"A Quiet Place" earned a solid second place finish putting its total domestic earnings to $99.6 million (it was made for $17 million). In China alone, the film has earned $193.8 million.

"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).

After misfiring in the US, Paramount's CGI animated film Sherlock Gnomes predictably is struggling, taking $843,000 in its second weekend wide, to reach $3.2 million.

Truth or Dare, the latest microbudget collaboration from Universal and Blumhouse, opened to strong $19.2 million in the US despite competition from A Quiet Place.

Another US dud, Ava Du Vernay's adventure fantasy A Wrinkle in Time has scraped up $3.2 million after taking $498,000 in its third weekend for Disney. The supernatural thriller stars Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey as spring breakers caught up in an innocent game that turns deadly. "Truth or Dare" debuts in 18 markets next weekend, including Mexico.
