John Krasinski's horror film A Quiet Place has reclaimed the top spot at the box office.
A Quiet Place is looking at a $21.8 million weekend from 3,808 locations, which is up by 219 locations over last weekend.
A Quiet Place has earned near-universal critical acclaim, including from ComicBook.com’s own Kofi Outlaw:
“A Quiet Place lives up to the hype as a 'must-see' horror film experience. This is a film where sound itself is a jump scare, so it's definitely recommended you catch this one in a theater with the biggest and best sound system available. You won't regret the investment.”
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Rampage, which came from behind to edge out A Quiet Place and win its opening weekend last week, came from behind again to take second place over Amy Schumer's new comedy I Feel Pretty. Rampage earned $20.3 million this weekend, bringing its total in North America to $66 million.
Part of Rampage's ability to retake the second place spot is down to I Feel Pretty disappointing with a $15.8 million opening.
Blumhouse's Truth or Dare manages to take fifth place over Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One. The horror film earned $7.9 million, bringing its box office total to $30.4 million. Despite being Blumhouse's most critically-panned movie to date, the film's small budget means it will still turn a tidy profit for in the end.
Ready Player One is in its fourth weekend. The film was the fifth-highest opener of Spielberg's career and has earned over $480 million worldwide.
This weekend is just the calm before a major storm. Next weekend will see the release of Avengers: Infinity War into theaters. The film is projected to have a record-shattering opening weekend at the box office, so expect some major shakeups then.
In the meantime, keep reading to see how the top ten movies at the box office this weekend stack up.
