On Friday afternoon, New Line's Rampage appeared to be dropping like a rock at the US box office, with first projections suggesting the big-budget movie might not earn much more than $28 million in its launch.
The film pulled in a disappointing $32M (Dh117.5M) on its opening weekend in the United States - some way off the $40M early tracking had hoped for - and could only manage second place at the box office behind John Krasinski's surprise hit horror A Quiet Place, which retained top spot for a second week.
Despite taking the crown, Rampage is coming in on the low end of industry projections, which had it pegged in the $35 million-$40 million range.
At ninth, we find Tyler Perry's Acrimony, earning $3.7 million, while Chappaquiddick fell to 10th on $3 million.
Rampage, which is based on the arcade game of the same name, is big, fun, and dumb, our reviewer said.
Rampage will need to demonstrate staying power, like Johnson's recent hit Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and/or do big business internationally to be considered a success. That figure brings the movie's domestic total to about $100 million after 10 days in theaters. We may never know, but the UAE haul helped the movie towards a $36.7M worldwide total, which included a top spot at the Chinese box office, where the film took $15.7M on Friday night alone. That's an impressive number for a movie that reportedly cost about $3.5 million to make and was shredded by critics. The film has been received poorly with a B- CinemaScore grade and a 15 percent RT score.
That's despite new horror competition from Blumhouse's Truth Or Dare, which looked to target more of a teen audience.
Rounding out the top five movies at the box office this weekend were Truth or Dare, which earned $19 million, Ready Player One, which earned $11.2 million, and Blockers, which earned $10.2 million.
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.
But with a $120 million budget, the profitability of "Rampage" is still up in the air, as box office analysts who spoke with TheWrap agree that the film likely has just two weekends to make its money before Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War" gobbles up screens and consumers.
