It looks like Rampage won the weekend, holding off last weekend’s top movie A Quiet Place. Rampage came in first place with an estimated $34.5 million from 4,101 theaters. The film also brought in $114.1 million from 61 markets internationally for a grand total of $148.6 million worldwide. For a $120 million film, that’s a tough one as it really only has one more weekend and then all the oxygen in the room will be sucked up by Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. The film played to a 55% male audience and 63% were over the age of 25. Audiences gave the film an “A-” CinemaScore.
In second place was last weekend’s winner, A Quiet Place which has seen a lot of positive word of mouth. The film added an estimated $32.6 million domestically to bring that total to just shy of $100 million (and depending on adjustments it might pass that number this weekend). That’s a quick $100 million and Paramount must be happy with the results. Internationally, the film added $22.3 million from 55 markets. The film has earned a total of $51.7 million at the international box office for a worldwide total of $151.3 million.
Another horror film Truth or Dare came in third place with an estimated $19 million debut from 3,029 locations. The film earned a “B-” CinemaScore and had an audience that was 60% female and 40% over the age of 25. The film brought in an estimated $2.6 million at the international box office. The film will have a slow international rollout over the next couple of months. Worldwide the film has earned $21.7 million.
In fourth place was Ready Player One with an estimated $11.2 million to bring its domestic total to $114.6 million. The film also added $33.8 million at the foreign box office from 65 markets. There the total is now $360.2 million for a worldwide total of $474.8 million. The movie opens in Japan this coming weekend.
Rounding out the top five was Blockers which added $11.2 million to its domestic total to bring that to $36.9 million. It also is in 21 international territories where it brought it $3.9 million. The international total is now $16 million for a worldwide total of $52.9 million.
