Dwayne Johnson powers Rampage past A Quiet Place at the box office

John Krasinski director and star of his film

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.

At ninth, we find Tyler Perry's Acrimony, earning $3.7 million, while Chappaquiddick fell to 10th on $3 million.

The global figures will certainly bring some relief to studio execs sweating at the U.S. disappointment, although with a total opening weekend haul that looks set to be less than $70M, the movie still has some way to go to make back its $120M production budget.

While "A Quiet Place" won't repeat as No. 1, Paramount still has a lot to celebrate with director-star John Krasinski's hit film. Universal's R-rated comedy Blockers rounded out the top five with $10.3 million for a tepid 10-day domestic cume of $36.9 million.

Dwayne Johnson and Naomie Harris' Rampage has narrowly beat A Quiet Place at the weekend box office! A strong rating like that suggests positive word-of-mouth, which may help the film do well into its second and third weeks.

In third is Universal/Blumhouse's "Truth Or Dare", which made $19 million in its opening weekend from 3,029 locations. Audiences gave it a B-minus CinemaScore.

The latter is nonetheless on track to top the full weekend chart. Steven Spielberg's film grossed $33 million overseas this weekend, which should push it cross the $500 million mark this coming week; the current global estimated cume is $474 million. Pacing for $18-21 million in receipts, the film should keep its #3 position for the weekend.

Despite awful reviews and a luke-warn response from the movie-going public (scoring a dismal 15% on Rotten Tomatoes critical consensus, a 21% audience score, and a B- on CinemaScore) Blumhouse's Truth or Dare did earn an estimated $19 million on only a $3.5 million dollar budget.
