Weekend Box Office: Let's Get Rocked

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.

Dwayne Johnson's action-adventure Rampage made a strong start in China over the weekend, chalking up a hearty $55 million. That is more that you would expect from a movie doing so well, and its total is now $37 million.

'A Quiet Place' fell a light 35% over its second week. The film added another $33.8 million internationally, for a world-wide total approaching the half billion mark soon.

Rounding out the top 5 is the over performing Truth or Dare, the latest from low-budget hit-maker Jason Blum and his Blumhouse company, which took in $19 million in third place, followed by Ready Player One in fourth with $11.2 million and Blockers in fifth with $10.2 million.
