John Krasinki’s “A Quiet Place” put up a good fight, but unfortunately Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage” was too much for it to handle. Beating it out by only $2.7 million, “Rampage” becomes the fourth new film in four weeks to take over the number one spot, with “Pacific Rim: Uprising,” “Ready Player One,” and “A Quiet Place” all taking the top spots in their first weeks. In third place, but quiet a way down in box office money, Blumhouse’s “Truth Or Dare” lands with $18.6 million, rising above both “Ready Player One” and “Black Panther.” Next week will likely be the first week that “Black Panther” falls out of the top five. But with “Avengers: Infinity War” right around the corner, perhaps there will be a surge in “Black Panther” as well.

Wes Anderson’s “Isle Of Dogs” continues to rise. Last week, it finally landed in the top ten and this weekend it continues its way to number seven, where, in all honestly, it has likely hit its peak. “I Can Only Imagine” and Tyler Perry’s “Acrimony” still find themselves in the top ten as well. “Beirut,” the film starring Jon Hamm and Rosamund Pike, landed at unlucky number thirteen with only $1.7 million while surprisingly, the unknown animated feature “Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero” about a dog’s part in World War I landed at number sixteen with an incredible $1.3 million. It’s not Pixar/Disney money, but it does prove that their are others in the animated game. Outside the top 25, the documentary “Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami” was the per theater winner, with an average of $18,724 at three theaters. “A Quiet Place” once again took the per theater win within the top 25, with an average of $9,186 in over 3,500 theaters. Last weekend, “You Were Never Really Here” couldn’t find its way into the 25, but this week, it pushes up to 23 followed by “Finding Your Feet,” which was released three weeks ago and finally landed on the top 25 with $282,895.

Behemoth box office films “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle” and “The Greatest Showman” were among the films to finally fall off the list. “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle” landed less that $500,000 short of garnering $1 billion worldwide, as this past week, it became Sony Pictures number one release ever, finally beating out “Spider-Man.” And the similar budgeted “The Greatest Showman” landed with a $424.8 million worldwide box office, which seems small compared to “Jumanji” but is actually a gigantic box office for a musical that people had put very little faith in. Jennifer Lawrence led “Red Sparrow” falls off the list, having not made its money back domestically, but making a decent worldwide box office. And “Midnight Sun,” “Baaghi 2,” and “God’s Not Dead: A Light In Darkness” round out the rest of the films that fell off the list, all of which were only in release less than a month. Compare that to “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle” and “The Greatest Showman,” which were both in release for seventeen weeks. Last week, I expressed my concern for “Tomb Raider” and its ability to recouped its budget and this week it becomes the biggest fall within the top 25, falling six spots to number 20. I fully expect it will make the final plunge next week and fall off the list at only six weeks.

Next week, Amy Schumer’s “I Feel Pretty,” which is tracking a $17 million opening, could fight it out with “Rampage” and “A Quiet Place” in a triple threat for the number one spot. A 50% fall would put “Rampage” at $17.8 million, beating out “I Feel Pretty” and a 50% drop for “A Quiet Place” would put it at $16.4 million, which is just under the prediction for “I Feel Pretty.” However, 50% drops are fairly unlikely for both, with “A Quiet Place” only dropping 34% this week. Another 34% drop would put “A Quiet Place” at more like $21.7 million, which would be $17 million easily. After that, get ready for “Avengers: Infinity War” to reign supreme, projecting a whopping $235 million opening. And even with films like “Deadpool 2” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story” coming soon after, unseating that Marvel juggernaut could prove difficult for a better part of the summer. Get ready for some records to shattered.
