Box Office: A QUIET PLACE reclaims first on slow, pre-AVENGERS weekend!

After a lively, unpredictable weekend at the box office weekend estimates have A QUIET PLACE edging out RAMPAGE to reclaim the top spot with $22 million 3,808 locations.

John Krasinski‘s horror hit has been a doozy at the box office, opening to an impressive $50+ million before falling behind the blockbuster appeal of The Rock’s RAMPAGE in its second weekend. A QUIET PLACE roared back to the top spot this weekend, bringing its domestic total to $132 million. The film stars Krasinski alongside real-life wife Emily Blunt as a pair of parents trying to keep their family alive in a world where invulnerable monsters hunt by sound, and has proven a hit with critics and audiences alike.

Coming up just behind A Quiet Place is the Dwayne Johnson disaster epic RAMPAGE, which pits the box office mainstay against a trio of monstrous giant animals. Brad Peyton‘s performed a bit ahead of projections to earn an estimated $21 million from 4,115 theaters in its second frame, landing the No. 2 spot and bringing its domestic tally to $66 million. The big-budget film has done much better overseas where it earned another $57 million this weekend, bringing its estimated global tally to $283 million.

The week’s major new releases filled out the third and fourth slots for the week, with the Amy Schumer comedy I FEEL PRETTY landing No. 3 with an estimated $16.2 million from 3,440 locations. The third-place opening exceeds pre-release predictions, which placed the films opening in the $13-15 million range, but falls short of Schumer’s last two features, 2015’s TRAINWRECK and 2017’s SNATCHED, which debuted to $30.1 million and $19.5 million, respectively.

Coming in at No. 4 is the fan-funded sequel, SUPER TROOPERS 2, which blazed past expectations with a seriously impressive showing at Thursday and Friday previews to earn an estimated $14.7 million this weekend — more than double the pre-release projections. The R-rated Fox Searchlight comedy reunites the Broken Lizard comedy troupe behind the first film to solve an international dispute at the U.S.-Canada border. The first film opened to $6.2 million domestically in 2002, before growing a cult following on home video. The final new release of the week is Lionsgate’s Codeblack Films’ TRAFFIK, which took in $3.9 million in 1,024 theaters for the No. 9 spot.

The battle for fifth place ended with Blumhouse and Universal’s TRUTH OR DARE on top, earning $7.9 million in 3,068 locations. That brings the domestic total for the PG-13 horror film to $30.4 million in two weeks. Next up is Steven Spielberg‘s READY PLAYER ONE, which earned another $7.5 million, bringing the domestic total for the nostalgia-fueled Warner Bros. blockbuster to $126 million, followed by Kay Cannon‘s critically celebrated comedy BLOCKERS, which tallied another $6.9 million for a domestic total of $48.3 million.
