'A Quiet Place' repeats at #1 as the stoners show up for 'Super Troopers 2'
A Quiet Place continued its not-so-quiet box office run over the weekend, scooping up a $22 million third-weekend cume. That brings the horror film’s total domestic gross to $132.3 million against a $17 million budget. Meanwhile, Rampage dropped 41.3% from its debut last weekend, settling in at spot number two with a $21 million weekend gross ($66.6 million total).
You have to go down to spots three and four to find new releases: I Feel Pretty ($16.2 million) and Super Troopers 2 ($14.7 million), respectively. That’s roughly on par with expectations for the former film and much higher (heh) than expectations for the latter. A stoner comedy and a 4/20 release date is a smart combination. Rounding out the top was was Blumhouse horror film Truth or Dare, which tumbled 57.6% from its debut last weekend to land at $7.9 million ($30.3 million total).
Lionsgate’s Traffik managed to crack the top ten with $3.8 million on 1,046 screens, while Indian political thriller Bharat Ane Nenu had the second-highest per theatre average of the week with $2.8 million on 305 screens. The weekend’s PTA champ was IFC’s Ghost Stories, which bowed to $12,563 on a single screen. Also out in limited release were Godard Mon Amour ($12,646 on four screens), The Devil and Father Amorth ($10,851 on eight screens) and Lou Andreas-Salomé, The Audacity To Be Free ($5,000 on one screen).
