Warner Bros. said Sunday that “Rampage” earned an estimated $34.5 million in its first weekend in North American theaters, and dominated internationally too with $114.1 million from 61 territories.
Based on the classic arcade game, “Rampage” carried a sizable budget of at least $115 million. Although “Rampage” pulled in mixed reviews (it’s at 50 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), audiences were more enthusiastic, giving it an A- CinemaScore.
“I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel on Friday. But when I look at our global number of $148.6 million, there’s a lot to be proud of for Dwayne Johnson,” said Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein. “Talk about a real closer, he knows how to bring it home.”
That Friday, of course, was Friday the 13th and audiences had the choice between two wide-release nail-biters to spend their entertainment dollars on — the buzzy thriller “A Quiet Place” that dominated the charts last weekend, and the new horror from the shop behind “Get Out” and “Split,” ”Truth or Dare.”
After its stunning debut, John Krasinski’s modestly-budgeted “A Quiet Place” fell only 35 percent in weekend two, adding $32.6 million to its domestic total, which is now just shy of $100 million for Paramount Pictures.”

You’ll only be able to watch Steven Spielberg’s horror streaming series after midnight
The nighttime-confined series is aptly titled, Spielberg’s After Dark. According to Quibi founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, Spielberg “has already written five or six episodes” of a 10-or 12-part story. Quibi, short for “quick bites,” refers to episodes as chapters.
“Steven Spielberg came in, and said, ‘I have a super scary story I want to do,’” Katzenberg said at a film festival event. “He’s writing it himself. He hasn’t (written anything in a while) so getting him to write something is fantastic.”
Spielberg wanted to add an extra layer of horror to After Dark by making it so that viewers could watch an episode only after midnight. Quibi engineers came up with a way to make this happen.
The service will feature a countdown clock that will track both sunset and sunrise in the user’s respective timezone. When the sun rises, the episode will disappear from the Quibi app until the following night……………………………………..”
