With a week to go before the summer blockbuster season really kicks off, “A Quiet Place” and “Rampage” duked it out again at the box office. And John Krasinski‘s alien invasion film prevailed, according to Box Office Mojo.
“A Quiet Place” debuted in at number one two weeks ago, slipped to a narrow second place finish last week, and then moved back to number one in its third weekend. The horror/thriller has earned $132 million in the US, with a worldwide total of over $207M. This comes on a budget of $17M. It is the seventh highest grossing supernatural horror (unadjusted), with just $5M to go before it overtakes “The Conjuring,” and $8M before it surpasses “The Blair Witch Project” for a slot in the top 5.
“Rampage” dropped into second place this week with $21M. The movie currently boasts the highest Rotten Tomatoes critical score for a video game adaptation with 50%, but US audiences haven’t embraced it as widely as international markets. In the US, “Rampage” has a two weekend total of $66,600,066. Worldwide, it is sitting at $283M. This is on a production budget of $120M.
Newcomer “I Feel Pretty” opened in third place with $16M. Amy Schumer‘s comedy earned back half its budget in the first weekend, and has not posted any international ticket sales yet.
Another newcomer to theaters was “Super Troopers 2.” The sequel comes 16 years after the original, and opened with $14.7M. The comedy had a budget of $13.5M and also has not opened internationally.
And holding on to the top five for one more week is the Universal/Blumhouse horror flick, “Truth or Dare” in fifth place. The film actually expanded this week, opening on an additional 39 screens, but it still saw a drop of nearly 60%. The movie took in $7.9M in its second weekend. These numbers may not look great on the surface, but the film has earned $38M worldwide on a production budget of just $3.5M.
Steven Spielberg‘s “Ready Player One” fell to sixth place this week. The sci fi/action movie added $7.5 to its domestic total of $126M. Overseas, it has been far better received, earning nearly $400M, for a total of $521M worldwide. When adjusted for inflation, it is the 20th highest grossing Spielberg film out of 33, but is just $1.4M behind “A.I.”
The comedy “Blockers” moved down to seventh with just under $7M. The movie that stars John Cena and Leslie Mann has earned over $48M in the US and $67M worldwide, with a budget of $21M.
“Black Panther” is still hanging around the top ten. It moved down to eighth place with $4.6M. But the King of Wakanda is still holding on to all sorts of records, including that $1.3 Billion worldwide total, the #1 Comic Book Adaptation, the #1 Superhero film, and the #1 MCU film. At least until next week, anyway.
The thriller “Traffik” also debuted this weekend, but only managed to open at number nine. The film earned almost $4M in its first outing, and did not open in foreign markets.
And rounding out the top ten is Wes Anderson‘s “Isle of Dogs.” The stop-motion animated film added $3.4M to its total. It currently has $24M in the US and $39M worldwide. Budget numbers haven’t been released, so its unclear where these numbers fall in terms of the film’s success.
Next week’s new releases are “Disobedience” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”
