'A Quiet Place' Wins Weekend Box Office Again!

'A Quiet Place' Wins Weekend Box Office Again!

Sci-fi horror film "A Quiet Place" snuck its way back to the top of the North American box offices over the weekend, beating out noisier action flick "Rampage", industry estimates showed Sunday.

Fox's launch of fan-funded "Super Troopers 2" could almost double recent forecasts, and is set to finish in fourth place with about $11 million at 2,038 location, including $1.4 million from previews.

Overall, it's expected to be a quiet weekend as Hollywood ramps up for the beginning of the summer season on April 27 when Disney and Marvel unfurl Avengers: Infinity War, which is expected to open to a mega $225 million or more.

Fallen from the top spot to number two was "Rampage", starring hard-working Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson as a primatologist who befriends an albino gorilla - which grows to enormous size after a rogue experiment and then teams with Johnson to stop invading monsters.

There was a bigger turnout on Sunday, although there were still a few thousand empty seats at the Emirates. Record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang started on the bench and Petr Cech missed out with a hip injury.

The word of mouth for John Krasinski's horror film has been stellar, with Paramount capitalizing on the buzz by adding 219 screens this weekend. Lionsgate's opening of "Traffik" is heading for a moderate debut of $4 million at 1,046 venues.

I Feel Pretty is tracking to open to $13 million-$15 million, behind Schumer's Snatched ($19.5 million) and Trainwreck ($30.1 million).

"I Feel Pretty" stars Schumer as an insecure woman who, after suffering a head injury, suddenly thinks she's handsome. "Rampage" has taken in $43 million domestically in its first six days and is nearing $200 million in worldwide grosses. Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Emily Ratajkowski, Busy Phillips, and Aidy Bryant round out the cast. The movie's Rotten Tomatoes score is presently 41 percent, an uptick over the first film (35 percent).
