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

A Quiet Place

SGA Quiet Place has become a huge box office hit

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", industry tracker Exhibitor Relations said Sunday.

"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. Still, A Quiet Place managed to score $32.6 million, so the horror thriller isn't exactly suffering.

The almost $35 million gross, however, is certainly a win for the $120 million film, slightly beating expectations here in America.

Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year. The medics said none of the patients were hurt by chemicals.

The worldwide figures will certainly bring some relief to studio execs sweating at the USA disappointment, although with a total opening weekend haul that looks set to be less than $70M, the movie still has some way to go to make back its $120M production budget.

Has John Krasinski seen this masterpiece? That figure brings the movie's domestic total to about $100 million after 10 days in theaters.

New release "Truth Or Dare" was #3 on Friday the 13th with $8.2 million.

The teen, from Uttar Pradesh's Unnao district, had accused the MLA and his associates of raping her in June 2017. She also said that the arrest of Sengar, the legislator from Bangarmau, was also a positive development.

Despite the movie sporting a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and last weekend's box office hit, "A Quiet Place", looking to have a strong second weekend in theaters, the Johnson brand went into overdrive leading to "Rampage" winning the weekend at the box office with an estimated $34.5 million, according to boxofficepro. Analysts expect the film to close its debut weekend with $29-33 million receipts.

Universal's comedy "Blockers" is just behind with $10.2 million, giving the $20 million comedy film a 10-day total of $37 million.

The latter is nonetheless on track to top the full weekend chart.
