SEOUL, April 16 (Yonhap) -- The Hollywood sci-fi actioner "Rampage" took the No. 1 spot on its opening weekend at the South Korean box office, beating another new American release, "A Quiet Place," data showed Monday.

Dwayne Johnson's arcade game-inspired "Rampage" sold 608,122 tickets from Friday to Sunday, according to the real-time based box office tally from the Korean Film Council (KOFIC).

"A Quiet Place" was in a distant second with 207,454 views. It is a horror-thriller about a family's struggle to survive in a world where alien creatures can hunt them if they make a sound.

Third place went to Steven Spielberg's sci-fi fantasy "Ready Player One," which brought 191,430 cinemagoers to theaters in its third weekend at the South Korean box office. It was closely followed by the Korean adult comedy 'What a Man Wants" seen by 185,854 people.

"GONJIAM: Haunted Asylum" slid to fifth place with 166,139 views after topping the chart for two consecutive weekends. The low-budget Korean horror film tells the story of seven young people teaming up to experience an abandoned former psychiatric hospital near Seoul, which CNN called one of the freakiest places in the world.
