The newest video game movie, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Rampage, opened on Friday and it made a lot of money in its first weekend.

It's been slated by critics and holds only a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Variety saying: The movie isn't scary, it isn't gripping, it isn't fun, and it isn't fueled by any sort of clever compulsion.

Dwayne Johnson can claim victory because Rampage narrowly took the top spot at the weekend box office with what appears to be a $34.6 million opening.

Overseas, "Rampage" did big business, opening with a worldwide total of $148.6 million - although, as THR points out, its $120-million budget, before marketing and advertising, will require the film to continue its strong performance next weekend. China is the top global market for the film with a $55 million launch, while IMAX screens accounted for $10 million worldwide.

The parody trailer mashup combines key scenes from "The Office" - like "the longest silent streak in office history" - with tense scenes and music from "A Quiet Place". The film has been received poorly with a B- CinemaScore grade and a 15 percent RT score.

New release "Truth Or Dare" grabs #3 on the weekend chart with $19.1 million. Steven Spielberg's film grossed $33 million overseas this weekend, which should push it cross the $500 million mark this coming week; the current global estimated cume is $474 million.

And in fifth was "Blockers", a raunchy comedy from Universal starring John Cena and Leslie Mann, which netted US$10.3 million.

Fox Searchlight also expanded Wes Anderson's stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs to 1,939 theaters (up from 554), collecting an estimated $5 million (good for seventh place) and upping its domestic total to about $18.5 million.
