Dwayne Johnson powers Rampage past A Quiet Place at the box office

Dwayne Johnson powers Rampage past A Quiet Place at the box office

"A Quiet Place", in its second week, took in a healthy US$32.6 million, buoyed by rave reviews.

Critics were mixed about the "Rampage", giving it a 51 percent Rotten Tomatoes score.

The global figures will certainly bring some relief to studio execs sweating at the United States 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.

Reviewers generally didn't enjoy Rampage, but the film boasts a very strong A-minus CinemaScore, which tracks what audiences are saying.

On this week's episode of MEET THE MOVIE PRESS, brought to you by Afterbuzz TV's Popcorn Talk Network, Simon Thompson and I discuss the Cannes-Netflix beef, Warner Bros. cutting ties with Brett Ratner, the new director of the Fast and Furious spinoff, and the cast of the It sequel. The film, which earned $10.5 million on Friday, should net $31-35 million for the weekend.

He said: "The emphasis is on those they want to ask and those they know". "I was like, 'This is gonna be great". She is also said to have been "friendly with the staff" ( TMZ really manages to find sources everywhere, huh?!).

Has John Krasinski seen this masterpiece? This weekend's almost $33 million gorss pushes its 10-day total of $100 million against a $17 million budget.

Dwayne Johnson and Naomie Harris' Rampage has narrowly beat A Quiet Place at the weekend box office! 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. Audiences gave it a B-minus CinemaScore.

Another low-budget horror film also had a great debut, with the Lucy Hale-starring "Truth or Dare" taking third place with an opening-weekend domestic take of $19.2 million.

Outside the top five, "Black Panther" finally fell out of the top ranks with a sixth-place total of $5.3 million in its ninth weekend.

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.
