'Rampage' Wins Weekend Box Office, Narrowly Beating 'Quiet Place'

Directed by John Krasinski, who also stars alongside wife Emily Blunt, A Quiet Place follows a family living in silence in order to hide from creatures that hunt their prey by sound.

Sci-fi action flick "Rampage" topped North American box offices over the weekend, taking in an estimated US$34.5 million to barely beat out horror film "A Quiet Place".

It's been slated by critics and holds only a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Variety saying: The movie isn't scary, it isn't gripping, it isn't fun, and it isn't fueled by any sort of clever compulsion.

"Rampage" is set to claim victory at the USA weekend box office with $34.5 million. Rampage made $114.1 million from global 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 wasn't the only horror pic to do scary business. That figure brings the movie's domestic total to about $100 million after 10 days in theaters. The strong word of mouth that pushed the film to a $50 million opening has helped hold its second weekend drop-off to just 34 percent.

Truth or Dare, the latest microbudget collaboration from Universal and Blumhouse, opened to strong $19.2 million in the USA despite competition from A Quiet Place. The film has been received poorly with a B- CinemaScore grade and a 15 percent RT score.

Rounding out the top five movies at the box office this weekend were Truth or Dare, which earned $19 million, Ready Player One, which earned $11.2 million, and Blockers, which earned $10.2 million.

In seventh is Fox Searchlight's "Isle of Dogs", which made $5 million from 1,939 screens in its first weekend in wide release, giving it a total of $18.4 million.
