Sci-fi action flick "Rampage" topped North American box offices over the weekend.
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 US dollars, defeating "A Quiet Place" in a close race. Heading into the weekend, tracking showed Rampage launching to $35 million-$40 million.
While the three-day take for the new Warner Bros. film was said to be one of the best ever for a video game spinoff, its US$120 million budget means the movie "will need to have strong legs to make its money back", Hollywood Reporter said. That's an impressive number for a movie that reportedly cost about $3.5 million to make and was shredded by critics. The plot follows a primatologist named Davis Okoye who must team up with George, an extraordinarily intelligent gorilla who turns into a raging creature of enormous size following a rogue experiment, in order to stop an invasion of monsters. Audiences gave it a B-minus CinemaScore.
Paramount's high-concept horror film A Quiet Place continued to defy expectations in its sophomore outing, earning $32.6 million for a domestic total just shy of $100 million, or $99.6 million.
