"Because it's a movie about a family that needs to remain quiet, this is such a flawless atmosphere and one of the best scenes to tell the rules of how to remain quiet, what happens if you don't", Krasinski says in the video.

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.

Rampage had a big first weekend domestically, but as EW notes, it's first-weekend haul is on the low side of industry projections, which had it making in the $35 million-$40 million. Rampage's new date meant that it debuted only two weeks after Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, likewise from Warner Bros.

October box office collection day 1: Varun Dhawan's film earns 5.01 crore
The film that experienced a slow start on Friday , April 13, the day it hit screens, has shown almost 48.21 % growth on Day 2. October , directed by Shoojit Sircar and also starring newcomer Banita Sandhu in the lead, is an emotional love story.


Based on the classic arcade game about giant monsters laying waste to cities, Rampage stars Johnson as a primatologist and former soldier who gets caught up in a rogue experiment that mutates an albino gorilla he saved from poachers - as well as a wolf and a crocodile.

What little noise there is in "A Quiet Place" is all the more effective for its scarcity. That figure brings the movie's domestic total to about $100 million after 10 days in theaters. The movie had a reported budget of $120 million, so it's already doing well, it seems. China is the top global market for the film with a $55 million launch, while IMAX screens accounted for $10 million worldwide.

"A Quiet Place", in its second week, took in a healthy US$32.6 million, buoyed by rave reviews. The film has been received poorly with a B- CinemaScore grade and a 15 percent RT score.
