"A Quiet Place" and "Rampage" are fighting it out again for the top spot at the domestic box office this weekend and easily beating newcomers like Amy Schumer's "I Feel Pretty" and "Super Troopers 2".
Paramount's third weekend of "A Quiet Place" should win what will be a quiet weekend as the horror-thriller continues to draw surprisingly well.
STXfilms' "I Feel Pretty" is poised to take in about $17 million at 3,440 locations this weekend after a modest $1 million from 2,600 sites during Thursday previews. "Rampage" has taken in $43 million domestically in its first six days and is nearing $200 million in worldwide grosses.
In fourth was "Super Troopers 2" - the long-awaited sequel to the 2001 film about a ne'er-do-well group of cops - in which the protagonists are tasked with replacing a Mountie unit in a Canadian town that is found to be part of the US. "Rampage" made $5 million on its second Friday and is looking at a weekend estimate of $18 million, roughly a 50 percent drop from its $35.7 million opening.
In third place was "I Feel Pretty", an Amy Schumer film about a self-conscious woman who suffers a head injury and subsequently sees herself as lovely, which made $16.2 million on its debut weekend.
In the film, directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, Schumer plays a woman who believes she looks like a supermodel after bumping her head in a spinning class. Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Emily Ratajkowski, Busy Phillips, and Aidy Bryant round out the cast. Lionsgate's opening of "Traffik" is heading for a moderate debut of $4 million at 1,046 venues. The movie's Rotten Tomatoes score is presently 41 percent, an uptick over the first film (35 percent).
