That was still behind expectations, however. But again, with a massive budget like that, Rampage needs a good showing overseas to make a profit, and it's doing just that, eyeing a $50 million opening in China in addition to performing well in other overseas markets.

In Rampage, Johnson plays a primatologist whose beloved pal - an albino gorilla - is transformed into a giant menace as the result of a genetic experiment (there's also a wolf and a crocodile involved).

In third is Universal/Blumhouse's "Truth Or Dare", which made $19 million in its opening weekend from 3,029 locations.
