John Krasinski's A Quiet Place has spechlessly subdued the box office to retake the top spot at the weekend box office once more, reports Variety. The Paramount-produced horror flick will take in $20 million from 3,808 domestic theaters, 219 more theaters when compared to last weekend. Domestically, A Quiet Place has racked up over $116 million, with over $173 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.

While Warner Brothers's Rampage was able to do some box-office damage last week during its theatrical debut, it couldn't hang on to the proverbial skyscraper and has fallen to second place, with $18 million from 4,115 theaters. The monster mash starring Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan is pure B-movie delight, but just wasn't strong enough to maintain the top spot against Krasinski's high-minded horror. Don't feel too bad for the Rock at the moment, because he's got a second chance with Skyscraper on July 13. And even so, Rampage has blown past A Quiet Place in worldwide sales, with a nifty $192 million.

Who Won the Week 4/20

Comedies I Feel Pretty and Super Troopers 2 nabbed third and fourth place, respectively, while genre fare Ready Player One and Truth or Dare compete for fifth, each raking in around $7 million. Steven Spielberg's love letter to pop culture is in its fourth weekend in theaters, and Blumhouse's latest horror entry is in its second. Ready Player One has made more than $120 million domestically and nearly $488 million globally, whereas Truth or Dare has been a bit more modest, with $24.9 million in North America and $27.5 internationally.

Next weekend, all these movies are totaly screwed, as Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters this coming Friday and is expected to make over $200 million in its debut alone.
