Rampage movie with Dwayne Johnson opens in #1 but with disappointing numbers

Apr 15, 2018 - by Colin Vassallo

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Rampage movie got its #1 spot in the box office this weekend with an estimated $34.5 million from 4,101 theaters according to data released by BoxOfficeMojo.com.

The movie, which was also released in several international locations this weekend, pulled in $114,100,000 and now has a worldwide box office revenue of $148,600,000. With Avengers: Infinity War coming out, realistically Rampage only has one more week of fight in the box office chart as once Avengers is released, it’s game over for all the other movies.

The $34.5 million opening weekend is a disappointment for the studio considering the movie cost $120 million to make. It was also the widest-ever release for a Johnson movie with 4,101 theaters. It still pulled less than the opening of Jumanji which was in 3,765 theaters and it sits in 14th place in terms of opening weekend for The Rock.

    I love how a movie makes 28 million over it’s budget on the first weekend and that is considered a disappointment.

    I don’t know who is really calling this a disappointment with all things considered. At the very least the movie seems like it will do better than breaking even. The general rule is you double the initial budget when you factor in marketing, with the revenue after that will be a profit.

    But looking at the figures, and how it will do in the long run, it will be a moderate success. As with most movies, there will be a drop off the following weeks, especially with Infinity War coming soon.

    I honestly would be shocked if this movie will be considered a flop. A critical darling? Doubtful. But a financial flop, probably not.

    It just came out and already brought in $150 million. It’s only gonna make more. They’re not even giving it a chance
