According to Box Office Mojo, that figure makes it the seventh largest grossing horror/supernatural film in domestic box office history. The drop-off for the movie is lower than expected as it's estimated to earn close to $21 million this weekend.

The endurance of each considerably overshadowed the newcomers, like Amy Schumer's "I Really feel Fairly" and the sequel to the 2001 cult comedy "Tremendous Troopers", each of which nonetheless managed to seek out their very own area of interest audiences regardless of largely damaging evaluations.

It's another weekend of buzz versus pure star power at the box office as the word of mouth sensation "A Quiet Place" finds itself neck-and-neck again with Dwayne Johnson's "Rampage". Looking at IMDb page view data, however, shows I Feel Pretty pacing well behind The Other Woman. All told, we're now seeing a rather wide window when it comes to just how well this film will perform, ranging from $12-19 million. It went into the weekend with $185.3 million in global ticket sales, a sum that's split with theater operators.

Look for Universal and Blumhouse's Truth or Dare to finish in fourth position. I predict that Rampage will hold off I Feel Pretty and land in second, with the latter in third. Star Wars: The Force Awaken's opening weekend record could be in jeopardy! China is the film's best market so far as the movie as earned over $106 million in The Middle Kingdom. One film that comes to mind is Fox's Let's Be Cops, which delivered a stellar $26.2 million over the course of its first five days after opening on a Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Lionsgate's R-rated "Traffik", about a couple (Omar Epps and Paula Patton) who must defend themselves against a biker gang during a mountain getaway, will probably debut with about $5 million. Previous Codeblack releases include The Perfect Match ($4.3m opening) and Addicted ($7.5m opening) and looking at IMDb page view performance comparisons we see Traffik pacing just ahead of The Perfect Match over the course of the two weeks leading up to release, though interest before that is clearly in favor of The Perfect Match.

This weekend's forecast is directly below. "World success like this implies a lot", Johnson posted on his Instagram account Saturday night time. That will give a huge boost to the domestic box office.
