Sci-fi action flick "Rampage" topped North American box offices over the weekend.
Still, it will no doubt find its audience: the movie has purposefully come out on Friday 13th and is expected to rake in about $15 million in its opening weekend.
That was the case when Dwayne Johnson's latest, the video game-inspired "Rampage", claimed the top spot at the box office in its opening weekend with a domestic gross of $34.5 million, sending "A Quiet Place" toppling to second place, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Despite taking the crown, Rampage is coming in on the low end of industry projections, which had it pegged in the $35 million-$40 million range. Rampage's new date meant that it debuted only two weeks after Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, likewise from Warner Bros.

Rampage, which is based on the arcade game of the same name, is big, fun, and dumb, our reviewer said.
What little noise there is in "A Quiet Place" is all the more effective for its scarcity. This weekend's almost $33 million gorss pushes its 10-day total of $100 million against a $17 million budget. Set to earn $32.6 million in its second weekend (cume now $99.6 million), "A Quiet Place" will take second place. The film has added about $51.7 million from foreign markets. That's an impressive number for a movie that reportedly cost about $3.5 million to make and was shredded by critics.
Truth or Dare, the latest microbudget collaboration from Universal and Blumhouse, opened to strong $19.2 million in the US despite competition from A Quiet Place.
In seventh is Fox Searchlight's "Isle of Dogs", which made $5 million from 1,939 screens in its first weekend in wide release, giving it a total of $18.4 million.
