Although Variety and Forbes initially reported that A Quiet Place was the victor, it turns out that Rampage actually unseated last week's champ (perhaps those outlets should wait until actually estimates are released next week, before they announce their "favorite" as the big winner).
Overseas, "Rampage" has made $114.1 million in multiple territories, giving it a $148.6 million worldwide start. It will be celebrating a second week at #1.
The action hero's new disaster movie Rampage will debut with an estimated $34.5 million from 4,101 theaters in the US and Canada through Sunday, edging out last week's No. 1 title, A Quiet Place, while the horror flick Truth or Dare opens in third.
However, the news is still excellent for the John Krasiniski-Emily Blunt horror flick, which scared up a more-than-respectable $32.6 million in its second week.
Despite bad reviews and a luke-warn response from the movie-going public (scoring a dismal 15% on Rotten Tomatoes critical consensus, a 21% audience score, and a B- on CinemaScore) Blumhouse's Truth or Dare did earn an estimated $19 million on only a $3.5 million dollar budget.

He vacillated the next day after being criticized for telegraphing war plans and insisted that no final decision had been made. The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and unsafe actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture".
According to ComScore, overall box office is down 2.3 percent year-to-date.
In third is Universal/Blumhouse's "Truth Or Dare", which made $19 million in its opening weekend from 3,029 locations.
At ninth, we find Tyler Perry's Acrimony, earning $3.7 million, while Chappaquiddick fell to 10th on $3 million. This weekend's almost $33 million gorss pushes its 10-day total of $100 million against a $17 million budget. The film has been received poorly with a B- CinemaScore grade and a 15 percent RT score. Pacing for $18-21 million in receipts, the film should keep its #3 position for the weekend.
The latter is nonetheless on track to top the full weekend chart. Two weekends before "Avengers" hits theaters, the film now has a domestic total of $673.8 million and a global total of $1.31 billion. Isle Of Dogs boosted its screen count and jumped from 10th to seventh with $5 million, even as I Can Only Imagine slipped a couple of places to eighth with $3.8 million.
