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.

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.
