Box-Office Weekend: Rampage Rages Against the Box Office
Apr 17, 2018, 00:21
The film is still quite beloved by the nation's critics, with an impressive 95% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, while this weekend's victor Rampage had the critics split right down the middle with a 50% rating on RT. Thanks to a strong overseas opening of $114.1 million from 61 markets, the worldwide opening weekend resulted in $148.6 million.
Global audiences smelled what Johnson was cooking last December when he helped lead Sony Pictures' positively reviewed "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" to $950 million worldwide.

Continuing that argument, the numbers put up by Jeff Wadlow's Truth or Dare further show mass audiences' hunger for horror - though it's a movie very different than A Quiet Place in the quality department.
An especially impressive feat this weekend is how Blumhouse's 'Truth or Dare' managed to gross a strong $19 million despite fellow horror movie "A Quiet Place" getting so much attention and holding over so well. This brings its domestic to $99.6 million, and if the actual total is adjusted up more than $400,000, it will pass the $100 million plateau in its second frame in theaters. Even so, made within the low-budget Blumhouse model, that's still a recipe for success.

In the United Kingdom and Korea, it made $5.7 million each on 907 and 895 screens, respectively. And the weekend's highest per-theatre average went to Chloé Zhao's The Rider, which opened to $45,268 theatres on three screens for a PTA of $15,089. Not only is it incredible that it only dropped 35.1 percent in its second weekend, but the film is also now on the verge of becoming the fifth title in 2018 to reach a nine-figure box office score domestically (and will do so by the end of tomorrow).
Estimates have yet to be reported for the animated "Sgt". The actual weekend drew $1.6 million, placing it at #13 with a $2 million five-day debut. Beirut, starring Jon Hamm, opened to $1.6 million on just over 750 theatres. Despite getting awful reviews with a 15 percent Rotten Tomatoes score, the film still managed to find an audience. It also stars Rosamund Pike. Sony Pictures Classics (NYSE:SNE) is handling the modern-day Western in the US.
