Horror and disaster movies top the weekend box office once again

A Quiet Place generated $22 million in the US and Canada, researcher ComScore Inc. estimated Sunday in an email. "Rampage" may as well have been called "Dwayne Johnson and his albino gorilla friend" because it's such an obscure video game ...

"A Quiet Place" had another noisy weekend at the domestic box office, reclaiming the No. 1 slot in its third frame.

Studio estimates on Sunday have placed "A Quiet Place", with $22 million, in first, and "Rampage" in second with $21 million, but it's possible those numbers may shift when final results are tallied on Monday. It has crossed the $200 million mark internationally, claiming $57 million this weekend. It went into the weekend with $185.3 million in global ticket sales, a sum that's split with theater operators.

"I Feel Pretty", released by STX Entertainment, grossed approximately $16.2 million - only a small less than half of exactly what Schumer's "train wreck" opened to in July 2015. "I Feel Pretty" is now averaging a tepid 34 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as a B+ CinemaScore.

The partially crowd-funded "Super Troopers 2", meanwhile, leaned into its April 20 opening and scored a fourth place, $14.7 million opening weekend for Broken Lizards and distributor 20th Century Fox.

Jay Chandrasekhar stars in and directs Super Troopers 2, which also features Paul Soter, Damon Wayans Jr., Seann William Scott, Lynda Carter, Rob Lowe, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Steve Lemme, Erik Stolhanske, Kevin Heffernan, and Brian Cox. The stoner comedy has a 35 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the same score as the original.

Made for just $17 million, A Quiet Place had taken in $164.8 million worldwide heading into the weekend, providing a boost to Viacom Inc.'s struggling film division.

Rounding out the top five is Universal and Blumhouse's "Truth or Dare". According to Box Office Mojo, that figure makes it the seventh largest grossing horror/supernatural film in domestic box office history.

The box office to the year continues down approximately 2.4 percentage from this past year, however, that will change next week. This is because next week, Avengers: Infinity War comes out and that movie is likely to dominate over everything else.

While this is a decent number, the film's Box Office will take a huge hit next week with the release of Avengers: Infinity War.
