“Rampage” stolen the top spot with $34.5 million
A weekend of fluctuating predictions, Dwayne Johnson (just scarcely) shine in the box office of North American after all.
Though the sci-fi actioner has a majestic, Cinema Score and 80 percent audience approval on Rotten Tomatoes, “Rampage” will need to rely heavily on overseas to carry its costly $120 million budget.
Though initial estimates, it looked like the second frame of “A Quiet Place” would take the weekend, Johnson’s “Rampage” stolen the top spot with $34.5 million from 4,101 theatres.
Also benefiting from the Friday the 13th weekend was Universal and Blumhouse’s collaboration “Truth or Dare.” The supernatural thriller debuted in third place with $19 million from 3,029 theatres. Still, its beginning was enough to just narrowly take the box office crown from “A Quiet Place,” which earned $32.9 million in 3,589 locations.
The top five Universal’s “Blockers
Wheeling out the top five is the sophomore weekend of Universal’s “Blockers.” Kay Cannon’s comedy starring John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz dropped 50 percent to take in $10 million from 3,418 locations. The third frame of Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” made $11 million from 3,661 locations, lifting its domestic gross to $114.5 million.
