#BoxOffice: “San Andreas” Grosses $53.2 Million On Debut

Hollywood movie, “San Andreas”, has registered an estimated $53.2 million in its U.S. debut on the box office Richter scale.

The disaster film starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took the top spot for the weekend and is roughly $13 million more than what most box office analysts were expecting.

“After the weak debut of ‘Tomorrowland’ last weekend, the market was definitely wide open for a breakout,” said Phil Contrino, chief box office analyst at BoxOffice.com.

For Johnson, “San Andreas” is the biggest opening of the actor’s career for a film in which he played the leading role.

With films grossing over $5 billion worldwide, Johnson has proven to be a major draw at the box office. However, a good chunk of that number belongs to the “Fast and the Furious” series where Johnson played a supporting part.

The solid opening of “San Andreas” shows that the actor can add a boost to already established franchises like “Furious” and can also stand on his own as one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood.

“[Johnson] is respected and admired by all audiences because he brings not only a pure physical power to his roles, but also charm & humor and that gives him an irresistible appeal to people around the world,” said Paul Dergarabedian, a box office analyst.

The film — which is distributed by Warner Bros, a company owned by Time Warner.
