Rampage, The Rock's New Video Game Movie, Opens Strong

BestsellerMagazine.com - CATEGORY Latest news: TITLE

The newest video game movie, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Rampage, opened on Friday and it made a lot of money in its first weekend. The over-the-top action movie pulled in $34.5 million for its opening weekend to sit in the No. 1 spot in the US and Canada. It beats out last weekend's No. 1, the horror film A Quiet Place, which was pushed down to second position.

Rampage had a big first weekend domestically, but as EW notes, it's first-weekend haul is on the low side of industry projections, which had it making in the $35 million-$40 million. Whatever the case, the US and Canada are just two regions. Rampage made $114.1 million from international markets this weekend, for a total of around $148.6 million. The movie had a reported budget of $120 million, so it's already doing well, it seems.

Surprised a 2nd theater.

Reviewers generally didn't enjoy >Rampage, but the film boasts a very strong A-minus CinemaScore, which tracks what audiences are saying. A strong rating like that suggests positive word-of-mouth, which may help the film do well into its second and third weeks.

Rampage, which is based on the arcade game of the same name, is big, fun, and dumb, our reviewer said. You can read our full >Rampage review here.

The Rock celebrated Rampage's first-weekend performance by making surprise appearances in movie theaters, including one in Los Angeles. You can see the full box office report for this weekend below, as rounded up and compiled by EW.
