The over-the-top action movie pulled in $34.5 million for its opening weekend to sit in the No. 1 spot in the U.S. and Canada.
Dwayne Johnson can claim victory because Rampage narrowly took the top spot at the weekend box office with what appears to be a $34.6 million opening.
In Rampage, Johnson plays a primatologist whose beloved pal - an albino gorilla - is transformed into a giant menace as the result of a genetic experiment (there's also a wolf and a crocodile involved). We may never know, but the UAE haul helped the movie towards a $36.7M global total, which included a top spot at the Chinese box office, where the film took $15.7M on Friday night alone. But again, with a massive budget like that, Rampage needs a good showing overseas to make a profit, and it's doing just that, eyeing a $50 million opening in China in addition to performing well in other overseas markets. Other big markets include Mexico ($4.8 million from 2,831 screens), Malaysia ($3.5 million from 590 screens), Indonesia ($3.1 million from 687 screens), and Russian Federation ($3.1 million from 2,668 screens). The live-action/CGI animated family film directed by Will Gluck has amassed $US298.2 million worldwide, including $184.4M internationally. The next key territories to launch will be France, Germany, and Japan.
Rounding out the top five are Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros'. sci-fi adventure Ready Player One, with about $11.2 million in its third weekend, and Universal's R-rated comedy Blockers, with about $10.3 million in its second weekend.
