Dwayne Johnson's 'Rampage' Tops The Box Office

  • A Quiet Place

That was the case when Dwayne Johnson's latest, the video game-inspired "Rampage", claimed the top spot at the box office in its opening weekend with a domestic gross of $34.5 million, sending "A Quiet Place" toppling to second place, according to The Hollywood Reporter. With a domestic release of $34.5 million, the Warner Bros. and New Line video game adaptation has made $148.6 million globally.

Steven Spielberg's "Ready Player One" - a futuristic homage to films of the 1980s - took in an estimated US$11.2 million to cling to fourth place in its third week out (its budget was a not-so-minuscule US$175 million). In the United Kingdom and Korea, it made $5.7 million each on 907 and 895 screens, respectively.

Given the estimated production budget of $120 million and a global P&A spend of $140 million, it is problematic whether the film which co-stars Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy and Joe Manganiello will recoup before Disney unleashes Avengers: Infinity War on April 26. The next key territories to launch will be France, Germany, and Japan. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt's A Quiet Place earned a total of $32.6 million at the box office in its second weekend, good enough for second place.

After misfiring in the US, Paramount's CGI animated film Sherlock Gnomes predictably is struggling, taking $843,000 in its second weekend wide, to reach $3.2 million.

The pic has done exceptionally well in China, producing $13.9 million on 8,000 screens this weekend. The live-action/CGI animated family film directed by Will Gluck has amassed $US298.2 million worldwide, including $184.4M internationally.

Another US dud, Ava Du Vernay's adventure fantasy A Wrinkle in Time has scraped up $3.2 million after taking $498,000 in its third weekend for Disney. In Germany, it took in 1.2 million in 495 locations, along with $308,000 in 71 locations in Austria.

Also scaring up ticket sales this weekend is Universal and Blumhouse's Truth or Dare, which will gross about $19.1 million from 3,029 North American figures.
