Despite performing below projections, Rampage topped the box office in its domestic debut, earning an estimated $34.5 million.
Director Brad Peyton’s video game-inspired adaptation earned $2.4 million in Thursday previews and was expected to make between $35M-$40M opening weekend. Rampage received an A- CinemaScore from moviegoers who saw the film opening night.
Internationally, the Dwayne Johnson-led action movie fared better. Rampage earned approximately $114.1 million outside of North America, making for a current global total of $148.6 million.
Meanwhile, A Quiet Place, which surpassed expectations last weekend with 2018’s second biggest domestic debut so far, only saw a 34 percent drop in its second weekend. The John Krasinski-directed horror film placed second at the domestic box office, earning an estimated $32.6 million. In just ten days since its debut, A Quiet Place is right around the $100 million mark, which is especially noteworthy given the film’s reported $17 million production budget.
Truth or Dare, the latest horror-thriller from Blumhouse, debuted in third place. The film, which was directed by Jeff Wadlow and reportedly had a production budget of under $5 million, earned an estimated $19.1 million in its opening weekend at the domestic box office.
