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

“Rampage” Edges “A Quiet Place” For US Weekend Box Office Victory; “Truth Or Dare” #3
The newest video game movie, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Rampage, opened on Friday and it made a lot of money in its first weekend.
Paramount's high-concept horror film A Quiet Place continued to defy expectations in its sophomore outing, earning $32.6 million for a domestic total just shy of $100 million, or $99.6 million.
But while "A Quiet Place" remains the horror film of choice at the box office, Blumhouse's microbudget strategy has paid off again as the film only has a $3.5 million production budget and has also beaten pre-weekend projections of a $12-15 million start.
Rampage earned $34.5 million this weekend in its opening weekend debut. Rampage made $114.1 million from global markets this weekend, for a total of around $148.6 million.
A Quiet Place wasn't the only horror pic to do scary business. This weekend's almost $33 million gorss pushes its 10-day total of $100 million against a $17 million budget. A strong rating like that suggests positive word-of-mouth, which may help the film do well into its second and third weeks.
The most recent examples of the scream queens are perhaps in the new movie Truth Or Dare - which is released today. The movie, nabbing an A- CinemaScore and playing to an ethnically diverse audience, comes on the heels of the blockbuster success of Johnson starrer Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. 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.
Universal's comedy film "Blockers" finished fifth with an estimated 10.29 million dollars in its second weekend.
Fox Searchlight also expanded Wes Anderson's stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs to 1,939 theaters (up from 554), collecting an estimated $5 million (good for seventh place) and upping its domestic total to about $18.5 million.
