WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: A Quiet Place rebounds to top the chart with 22MM on a 33 percent drop; its 132MM domestic gross against a 17MM budget is a rare spot of good news for Paramount these days.  Rampage shows with 21MM on a 41 percent drop, which is likely better than expected (and more than 75 percent of its money is being made overseas, primarily Asia, which loves them some giant monsters).  I Feel Pretty shows with 16.2MM against a 32MM budget, which raises the question of whether Amy Schumer can make a hit without Judd Apatow.  Super Troopers 2 takes the fourth slot with 14.7MM against a 13.5MM budget, but there was likely a lot of front-loaded demand, esp. on 4/20.  Truth or Dare rounds out the Top Five with 7.9MM on a 58 percent drop, but a 30MM domestic gross to date against a 3.5MM budget ensures more of these cheapies from Blumhouse.
