‘Rampage’ Tops Weekend Box Office, but ‘A Quiet Place’ is Making the Most Noise

It was nearly an upset at the weekend box office, but Warner Bros. and New Line's Rampage was able to hold off a strong second weekend from Paramount's hit horror/thriller A Quiet Place to take the weekend's #1 spot. But that doesn't discount the fact A Quiet Place is less than $400k shy of topping $100 million domestically after just ten days in release. Additionally, Blumhouse's Truth or Dare delivered a solid, third place debut. With an estimated $34.5 million, Warner Bros. and New L...

After leading Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which just became the studio's highest grossing domestic release of all-time, Dwayne Johnson arrives with his latest offering, starring in this weekend's release of Warner Bros. and New Line's Rampage. At the same time Blumhouse will debut its latest micro-budgeted thriller Truth or Dare, which will have its hands full competing for audience attention with last weekend's box office champ A Quiet Place, which looks to follow up its stellar...

‘Black Panther’ Dominates Lackluster March at the Box Office

Following a record-breaking February, which saw the February domestic box office top $1 billion for the first time ever, March saw a -24% decline compared to 2017 with calendar grosses totaling $891 million. One thing didn't change in March, however, and that was the #1 film as Black Panther not only dominated the month of February, but was also responsible for nearly 25% of March's overall gross. In fact, thanks to Black Panther, even though March was such a down month, the first quarter o...

‘A Quiet Place’ Delivers Not So Quiet $50 Million Opening

With a $50 million debut, Paramount's A Quiet Place finished atop the weekend box office in impressive fashion and while Universal's Blockers didn't deliver even half of what A Quiet Place did, the film's $21 million debut was a solid start for the low budget R-rated comedy. The weekend also saw a very strong hold for Warner Bros.'s Ready Player One and Disney and Marvel's Black Panther topped Titanic this weekend to become the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time. Paramo...

‘A Quiet Place’ and ‘Blockers’ Look Strong Heading into Weekend

March finished down -24% compared to last year's record-breaking performance and yet the first quarter of the year finished down just -2% compared to last year, thanks in large part to Black Panther making up nearly 23% of the quarter's overall gross. It's far too early in April to make any declarations as to whether this month will turn things around, but things do look promising with the likes of Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon as well as this weekend's top two offerings. Both A Qu...

‘A Quiet Place’ Breaks Out with $4.3M from Thursday Previews; ‘Blockers’ Brings in $1.5M

FRIDAY AM UPDATE: With an estimated $4.3 million in previews from 2,740 locations, Paramount's A Quiet Place is off to an excellent start. This more than double's the $2 million Split brought in from Thursday night previews and is slightly ahead of the $4 million in previews brought in by Annabelle: Creation before it opened with $35 million. The film begins playing in 3,508 theaters today and is already looking at a promising debut. Also delivering solid preview numbers, Universal's B...

‘Ready Player One’ Tops Easter Weekend Box Office with $53M Four-Day Debut

Coming in on par with Mojo's pre-weekend forecast, Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One topped the weekend box office and delivered the director's largest opening weekend in ten years. The weekend also saw a strong second place debut for Lionsgate's Acrimony, the latest film from Tyler Perry, while Black Panther and I Can Only Imagine remain in the top five with their continued impressive runs. Not so impressive was the debut for Pure Flix's God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness, which finishe...
