This Mash-Up of A Quiet Place & The Office Has Us Shaking

A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place

On Friday afternoon, New Line's Rampage appeared to be dropping like a rock at the US box office, with first projections suggesting the big-budget movie might not earn much more than $28 million in its launch.

Overseas, "Rampage" has made $114.1 million in multiple territories, giving it a $148.6 million worldwide start.

WHAT DID YOU SEE at the movies this weekend???

New Line Cinema and Warner Bros.' science fiction monster film "Rampage" topped North American box office in its opening weekend with an estimated 34.5 million USA dollars, defeating "A Quiet Place" in a close race.

Rampage, which is based on the arcade game of the same name, is big, fun, and dumb, our reviewer said. China is the top global market for the film with a $55 million launch, while IMAX screens accounted for $10 million worldwide.

In second place, Paramount's thriller A Quiet Place will take in about $32.6 million, which represents a very modest 35% decline from its excellent opening last week. This weekend's almost $33 million gorss pushes its 10-day total of $100 million against a $17 million budget.

Directed by John Krasinski, who also stars alongside wife Emily Blunt, A Quiet Place follows a family living in silence in order to hide from creatures that hunt their prey by sound. The movie had a reported budget of $120 million, so it's already doing well, it seems.

Rounding out the top five are Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros'. sci-fi adventure Ready Player One, with about $11.2 million in its third weekend, and Universal's R-rated comedy Blockers, with about $10.3 million in its second weekend. The film has been received poorly with a B- CinemaScore grade and a 15 percent RT score.

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.
