The movie, an adaptation of the Disney theme park ride, is being directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows) and sees Johnson as a riverboat captain cursed with immortality who takes Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) down river on her quest to search for the Tree of Life. Jack Whitehall (Bad Education) is also on board as Blunt’s brother.
Ramirez is said to be playing a man with a conquistador background who is one of the story’s villains. As yet, there’s no word on Plemons’ character, save for the fact that he’s also a bad guy.

In second is last weekend’s box office topper, Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage,” with about $18 million from 4,115 theaters. The action film opened to $35 million last weekend, narrowly beating out “A Quiet Place’s” second frame.
“A Quiet Place” stars Krasinski and wife Emily Blunt as a couple trying to keep their family safe in a world populated by aliens that hunt based on sound. The Paramount film has grossed a respectable $116 million through Friday, including $56 million from foreign markets.
In its first seven days, Warner Bros.’ “Rampage” has earned $187 million globally to a $120 million production budget, with $141 million from overseas. Directed by Brad Peyton and also starring Naomie Harris, the film follows Johnson’s scientist David Okoye, who

However, it seems that studios certainly aren’t ready to give up trying, and it looks like Universal Pictures may have another video game-based project on its upcoming slate, with actress Nina Bergman (Assassin X) revealing on Twitter this week that the studio is prepping a new adaptation of the classic first person shooter Doom.

Fox’s launch of fan-funded “Super Troopers 2” could nearly double recent forecasts, and is set to finish in fourth place with about $11 million at 2,038 location, including $1.4 million from previews. Lionsgate’s opening of “Traffik” is heading for a moderate debut of $4 million at 1,046 venues.
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. The tale of a family under attack in a remote forest has grossed a healthy $111 million in North America in less than two weeks, including a stunning $50 million opening on April 6-8.

STXfilms’ “I Feel Pretty” took in $1 million from 2,600 sites during Thursday previews.
“Super Troopers 2” reunites the five stars of the original 2001 film — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske, collectively known as Broken Lizard. The quintet plays profane Vermont state troopers with a penchant for pranks and feuding with other local law enforcement officers. The sequel, which was crowd-funded in 2015 with an impressive $4.4 million from fans of the original, is forecast to finish the weekend with about $6 million.
“Super Troopers 2’s” preview earnings indicate that it may outperform forecasts as it nearly matched the $1.5 million from R-rated “Blockers,” which went on to open with $20.6 million on its April 6 launch weekend. The film, which is expanding Friday to 2,038 venues, carries a 32% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Nevertheless, it's still not clear how the full weekend will play out. Most estimates show A Quiet Place winning the weekend with $20 million or more from 3,808 theaters — an impressive feat considering John Krasinski's high-concept horror film is in its third weekend.

“I Feel Pretty” stars Schumer as Renee, who after a head injury during a workout class sees her body in a completely new perspective and has a newfound confidence to live life fearlessly. The film, written and directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, also stars Michelle Williams, Emily Ratajkowski, Aidy Bryant, Busy Philipps and Tom Hopper.

It is the sequel to the cult comedy by Jay Chandrasekhar, which was released in February 2002 and opened to $6.2 million — $9.8 million in today’s dollar.
The sequel is written by and stars the Broken Lizard comedy team, which includes Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske as a group of bumbling Vermont State Troopers. When a border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the group sets up an outpost in the disputed land, and their arrival isn’t welcomed by the Canadians. Brian Cox, Seann William Scott, Lynda Carter, and Rob Lowe also star.

I didn’t just go to a movie the other night, I was “in the movie”. That’s what maker of new cinema technology 4Dx claims happened, at least. If Imax and 3D were the beginning of a new multiplex arms race, 4Dx is the nuclear option, supposedly “a revolutionary cinematic experience which stimulates all five senses”. What that means in practice is a more rollercoaster type of cinema experience: the seats move in all directions, fans blow wind through the auditorium, there are water sprays, scented air, smoke, strobes, snow effects and more. Developed in South Korea, 4Dx has been gradually rolling out around the world: first in Asia and central and south America,

His tweet responded to my just-published article about “Rampage” and how it positioned him as a contender for the biggest star in movies (particularly in domestic play). He took aim at the headline. So, a response is in order.
The headline synthesized the story’s message, which focused on his film’s domestic performance. “Rampage” was #1 for the weekend, and indeed met and slightly exceeded domestic projections.
