A Quiet Place edges closer to $100 million, while Rampage swings in with a barely-there first place finish.
John Krasinski's A Quiet Place had an astounding second week, almost repeating as the first place finisher, as it inches closer and closer to topping $100 million. But, the horror film was no match for Dwayne Johnson and Rampage, the video game-based action flick from New Line.
Rampage barely crossed into first place, with $34.5 million. While it was a decent opening, the film isn't expected to see as exciting numbers as A Quiet Place in the weeks to come. Avengers: Infinity War will definitely put a plug on Rampage's box office.
A Quiet Place's astounding growth is more than welcome by Paramount Pictures. The studio hasn't had this large of a hit since Star Trek Beyond in 2016.
Truth or Dare, a new horror outing from Blumhouse, opened to $19 million, enough for a third place finish.
As for holdovers, Ready Player One took in just over $11 million. Blockers brought in $10 million.
In limited release, Jon Hamm starrer Beirut took in $1.65 million. Critically-praised The Rider brought in $45,268.
Coming up next week, Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty and Super Troopers 2 open wide.
