'Rampage' Rocks International Box Office With $114 Million

John Krasinski

The weekend box office was dominated by "Rampage", with the Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson led video-game adaption from New Line rocking the global front to earn $114.1 million in 61 territories while making a domestic debut with $34.5 million from 4,101 screens, Variety reported. Friday totals showed the Rock's latest with slight edge over "A Quiet Place", which pulled ahead on Saturday thanks to excellent holdover.

Truth or Dare also found a sizable audience that was mostly young (60% under the age of 25) and female (60%).

While I focus on Rampage because it grabbed the top spot, I can't ignore the wonderful performance put on by A Quiet Place during Round Two with audiences.

Universal's Truth or Dare delivered an estimated $19 million open, a pretty impressive total for such a poorly reviewed film.

Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One (weekend gross $11.2 million, total gross $114.6 million) slid to spot number four in its third weekend, while R-rated comedy Blockers (weekend gross $10.2 million, total gross $36.9 million) rounded out the top five.

Orr said despite the competitive marketplace, the studio's marketing found a lane with the younger female audience and played into the Friday the 13th release.

Chloe Zhao's 2017 Cannes entry The Rider launched to $45,268 from 3 theaters for a screen average of $15,089.

Rampage may have failed to set the U.S. box office alight over the weekend, but it seems audiences in the UAE can't get enough of Dwayne Johnson and his monkey business in the big budget monster flick.

Toledo passengers react to report about Allegiant Airlines
According to its website, Allegiant Air has nearly 130 flights to and from destinations in the United States and Puerto Rico. He called the report's conclusion "reasonable", but said the airline is safe, otherwise the FAA would shut it down.

Wes Anderson's stop-motion outing "Isle of Dogs" went ambitiously wide but made just $5 million from 1,939 locations.

Well, it did, but not by much, which is great news for the horror film, and not so great news for the giant monster one.

"For box office analysts like comScore's Paul Dergarabedian, "'Rampage's' performance fits into the post-'Black Panther' narrative for most would-be blockbusters that have followed the Marvel and Disney phenomenon. Other big markets include Mexico ($4.8 million from 2,831 screens), Malaysia ($3.5 million from 590 screens), Indonesia ($3.1 million from 687 screens), and Russian Federation ($3.1 million from 2,668 screens). But the tide could be turning soon.

At one point, the two movies were neck and neck as they competed for the box office crown.

Final numbers are expected Monday.

Sliding into fourth place was the Indian family dramedy Hindi Medium, collecting $29.5 million.

Panther, 5.3 million dollars (2.6 million dollars international).
