If horror and thriller films are your cup of tea, I suggest popping the popcorn and heading to your nearest movie theater to see the top grossing films of the weekend.
Dwayne Johnson stars in Rampage as primatologist Davis Okoye who has a close relationship to silverback gorilla, George, who falls victim to a genetic experiment that mutates him into a colossal ape. A similar fate befalls other animals across the continent and Okoye is tasked with saving them. This film is leading in the box office this weekend, grossing $35,753,093, according to Box Office Mojo.
John Krasinski stars alongside wife Emily Blunt in A Quiet Place, where their family tries to survive a monster that hunts prey with its keen hearing. The movie “plays on elemental fears with a ruthlessly intelligent creature feature that’s as original as it is scary” as stated by Rotten Tomatoes critics, who rate the movie 8.1/10.
Truth or Dare stars Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey who depict a group of teenagers playing a game of truth or dare that goes awry. Players who fail to be truthful or complete a dare must face deadly consequences. Despite raking in $18,667,855 this weekend, overall, the movie disappointed audience members and critics called it a “mediocre” play on the traditional truth or dare game itself.
