By Daniel Garris

Weekend Actuals Update:

With actuals now in, Warner and New Line's Rampage increased over yesterday’s studio estimate thanks to a stronger than expected Sunday hold. Rampage debuted in first place with $35.753 million.

Paramount’s A Quiet Place came in slightly above yesterday’s estimate with a close second place take of $32.970 million and in the process passed the $100 million domestic mark on Sunday.

Universal’s Truth or Dare came in a bit below its weekend estimate with a still stronger than expected third place launch of $18.668 million.

Other weekend actuals for the frame include: Ready Player One ($11.519 million), Blockers ($10.770 million), Black Panther ($5.778 million), Isle of Dogs ($5.475 million), I Can Only Imagine ($4.142 million), Tyler Perry’s Acrimony ($3.653 million), Chappaquiddick ($3.060 million), Sherlock Gnomes ($2.405 million), The Miracle Season ($2.213 million) and Beirut ($1.734 million).

Weekend Estimates Update:

Warner Bros. and New Line’s Rampage debuted in first place this weekend with an estimated $34.50 million. It was a very close race for first this weekend, as Rampage topped the second weekend performance of A Quiet Place by just $1.90 million. Rampage opened towards the lower end of expectations, which had tended to range from the low-thirties to forty million heading into the weekend. Coming off the breakout success of last year’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Dwayne Johnson continued to showcase his current box office drawing power with Rampage. The opening weekend performance of Rampage was just below the $35.54 million launch of 2016’s Central Intelligence (Johnson’s last Warner Bros. and New Line film), though it will be difficult for Rampage to duplicate the holding power of Central Intelligence going forward (especially with Disney’s highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War opening on April 27). Rampage registered the 16th largest opening weekend ever for the month of April.

Rampage started with $11.55 million on Friday (which included an estimated $2.40 million from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), was up a strong 20.3 percent on Saturday to take in $13.90 million and is estimated to decline 34.9 percent on Sunday to gross $9.05 million. Critical reviews for Rampage have been lukewarm, but at the same time the film has gone over relatively stronger with critics than the typical video game based film. Audiences appear to be responding very favorably to Rampage, as in addition to the film’s encouraging 20.3 percent jump on Saturday, Rampage received a healthy A- rating on CinemaScore.

Rampage was far more impressive internationally this weekend, with an estimated international launch of $114.1 million. That places the film’s global start at $148.6 million. It was especially important for Rampage to perform well internationally given the film’s sizable price tag. International starts for Rampage included $55.0 million in China, $5.7 million in the U.K., $5.7 million in South Korea, $4.8 million in Mexico, $3.5 million in Malaysia, $3.1 million in Indonesia, $3.1 million in Russia, $2.3 million in India, $2.3 million in Australia and $2.3 million in Thailand.

Paramount’s A Quiet Place continued to excel at the box office with a close estimated second place take of $32.60 million. That represented a 35.1 percent decline from the film’s opening weekend performance, which is an especially good second weekend hold for a horror film. Very strong critical reviews, good word of mouth and Friday the 13th all contributed to the strong second weekend hold for A Quiet Place. The second weekend hold of A Quiet Place was very similar to the 35.9 percent last year’s Split declined in its second weekend to gross $25.66 million. A Quiet Place is on the verge of passing the $100 million domestic mark with a ten-day start of $99.64 million. That places the film an impressive 28.8 percent ahead of the $77.39 million ten-day take of Split. Expect A Quiet Place to continue to hold up well going forward.

Fellow PG-13 rated horror film Universal’s Truth or Dare arrived in third place this weekend with an estimated $19.08 million. Truth or Dare outpaced opening weekend expectations, which had ranged from the low-teens to the mid-teens. This weekend’s performance for Truth or Dare was especially impressive given the continued break-out success of A Quiet Place. Clearly, Friday the 13th helped the two PG-13 horror films co-exist with one another this weekend. Truth or Dare also represents another strong low-budget performer from Universal and Blumhouse. In comparison to other films from Universal and Blumhouse, Truth or Dare opened 20.4 percent ahead of the $15.85 million start of 2015’s Unfriended and 26.7 percent behind the $26.04 million launch of last year’s Happy Death Day.

Truth or Dare took in $8.29 million on Friday the 13th (which included an estimated $750,000 from Thursday night shows that began at 7PM), declined a sharp, but understandable 17.6 percent on Saturday to gross $6.83 million and is estimated to fall 42.0 percent on Sunday to claim $3.96 million. The film’s estimated opening weekend to Friday ratio of 2.30 to 1, is respectable for a horror film opening on Friday the 13th. And while Truth or Dare has gone over poorly with critics, the film’s B- rating on CinemaScore is also respectable for a horror film. Internationally, Truth or Dare took in an estimated $2.6 million this weekend, including $1.32 million from the U.K. and $787,000 from Australia.

Warner’s Ready Player One placed in fourth this weekend with an estimated $11.21 million. After a strong hold last weekend, Ready Player One was down a sharp 54.5 percent this weekend, as the new direct competition from fellow Warner Bros. release Rampage and losing IMAX shows to Rampage, took a clear toll on Ready Player One this weekend. With that said, Ready Player One has still grossed a very solid $114.61 million through 18 days. That currently ranks Ready Player One as the second highest grossing release of 2018 to date domestically (behind only Black Panther).

Ready Player One continued to impress internationally this weekend with an estimated $33.8 million. To date, Ready Player One has grossed $360.2 million internationally and $474.8 million globally. Current international totals for Ready Player One include an impressive $192.8 million in China (where it took in $13.9 million this weekend), $20.4 million in the U.K., $17.1 million in South Korea, $14.9 million in France, $11.7 million in Russia, $10.5 million in Taiwan, $8.8 million in Australia and $8.4 million in Mexico.

Universal’s Blockers rounded out the weekend’s top five with an estimated $10.30 million. On the heels of last weekend’s stronger than expected start, Blockers fell a sharper than expected 49.9 percent this weekend. The film’s second weekend decline suggests that Blockers isn’t going over as well with audiences as it has with critics. With that said, Blockers has still grossed a solid $36.93 million in ten days. Blockers could experience further slowing next weekend when STXfilms’ I Feel Pretty and Fox Searchlight's Super Troopers 2 both enter the marketplace on Friday. Internationally, Blockers took in an estimated $3.9 million this weekend. That brings the film’s international total to $16.0 million and current global haul to $52.9 million.

Disney’s Black Panther claimed sixth place with an estimated $5.34 million. Black Panther was down a solid 38.6 percent from last weekend and continues to pad its status as the third highest grossing film all-time domestically with a massive $673.80 million in 59 days. To date, Black Panther has grossed $639.7 million internationally and $1.314 billion globally.

In other box office news, Fox Searchlight’s Isle of Dogs had a lackluster expansion into wide release with an estimated $5.00 million. After an impressive three-week run in platform and limited release, Isle of Dogs was only up 9.6 percent this weekend upon expanding into an additional 1,385 locations. The 24-day total for Isle of Dogs stands at $18.45 million.
