Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

#RampageMovie Conquers The Box Office

It looked for a while as though new entry Rampage, even given the draw of The Rock, might not be able to displace reigning movie A Quiet Place from the top of the box office. But, surprisingly for a film that features giant monsters smashing things, it squeaked past, earning $34.5 million, according to studio estimates.

Worldwide, the new movie has taken in more than $148 million, and should be on course to be another success for Dwayne Johnson and director Brad Peyton. Still, A Quiet Place managed to score $32.6 million, so the horror thriller isn't exactly suffering. That film has taken nearly $100 million in just two weeks, and is past $151 million globally.

That's despite new horror competition from Blumhouse's Truth Or Dare, which looked to target more of a teen audience. The film scared up $19 million for a third place launch, a fine opening given the movie's lower budget, but not quite the same level of success as, say, Get Out. Ready Player One was pushed to fourth on $11.2 million, while comedy Blockers rounds out the top fifth for $10.2 million.

In sixth place, Black Panther saw little impact from its home entertainment release announcement, as it still took in $5.3 million for a 673..7 million domestic total. Isle Of Dogs boosted its screen count and jumped from 10th to seventh with $5 million, even as I Can Only Imagine slipped a couple of places to eighth with $3.8 million.

At ninth, we find Tyler Perry's Acrimony, earning $3.7 million, while Chappaquiddick fell to 10th on $3 million.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…

From Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody – the team behind JUNO and YOUNG ADULT – comes a new grown-up comedy with their signature style of irreverence and insight. Academy Award winner Charlize Theron gives an extraordinary performance in TULLY - the story of a parent stretched to her limit, the bonds of female friendship and how we can embrace the messiness of life. While it might not have been intentional, TULLY completes a trilogy that began with JUNO and YOUNG ADULT. Each features a female protagonist at a different stage of her life, and each film explores how complicated it is to find happiness.
