Box Office: San Andreas and The Rock Level the Competition

But how did Bradley Cooper's Aloha do?

Tim Surette

A few disasters made their debuts at the box office this weekend, but only one was the good kind. San Andreas, the effects-heavy action drama featuring The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) body-slamming a devastating earthquake in California, easily defeated the rest of this week's flicks. But the figures for the other big-name entry for the week, Cameron Crowe's poorly reviewed Aloha, provided more rubble than San Andreas.

San Andreas tallied $53.2 million in its opening weekend, Box Office Mojo reports, beating second place's Pitch Perfect 2 ($14.4 million in its third week) by almost $40 million. It's the biggest box-office opening for Johnson aside from his Fast & the Furious films.

A couple wildly different takes on the future took up the third and fourth slots, with George Clooney's Tomorrowland notching $13.8 million and Mad Max: Fury Road tailing right behind with $13.6 million.

In its fifth week in release, Avengers: Age of Ultron stayed steady in fifth place with $10.9 million. Its domestic tally sits at $427 million so far.

Aloha said hello to the box office top 10 this week, but could very well say goodbye next week after a pathetic $10 million debut, which was enough for sixth place. The rom-com boasts a cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray and Alec Baldwin, but terrible reviews kept audiences away.

Poltergeist sat in seventh with $7.8 million in tickets. Rounding out the top 10: Far from the Madding Crowd was eighth with $1.42 million, Hot Pursuit was ninth with $1.37 million and Home finished 10th with $1.15 million.
