The first film launched with $6 million. The stoner comedy has a 35% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the same score as the first film. Another newcomer, Fox Searchlight's "Super Troopers 2," opened in fourth, burning by projections to make $14.7 million from 2,038 locations. The audience score of the sequel, however, is down significantly from the original's, at 68% compared to the first movie's 90%. The sequel reunites the 2002 cult classic's leads — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske — collectively known as Broken Lizards.
The final weekend opener is Lionsgate’s Codeblack Films' "Traffik," which took in $3.9 million in 1,024 theaters.
That could change next weekend as "Avengers: Infinity War" eyes a monstrous opening weekend. The domestic box office is up 12.6% compared to the same weekend last year, though the year to date box office is down 2.4%.
"People just want to find something they can have a good time with," he said. "This audience knew they'd laugh and have a communal experience that makes them feel good.
"Truth or Dare" has pulled in $7.9 million internationally, combining for a global tally of $38.3 million. Rounding out the top five is Universal and Blumhouse's "Truth or Dare." Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey lead the thriller, which scored $7.9 million in 3,068 locations. In total, the horror film has made $30.4 million in two weeks.
"A Quiet Place" had another noisy weekend at the domestic box office, reclaiming the No. 1 slot in its third frame.
"A Quiet Place" had another impressive holdover, declining only 34% to bring its domestic tally to $132 million. John Krasinski's thriller co-starring Emily Blunt continued on its stellar run, earning $22 million from 3,808 locations. That was enough to top Dwayne Johnson's "Rampage" and Amy Schumer's "I Feel Pretty."
The Schumer-led comedy also features Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Emily Ratajkowski, Busy Phillips and Aidy Bryant. STX's "I Feel Pretty" bowed in third with $16.2 million from 3,440 theaters. "I Feel Pretty" is currently averaging a tepid 34% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as a B+ CinemaScore.
"The industry is bracing for the record-setting debut of the highly anticipated 'Avengers: Infinity War' that is expected to break through the $200 million opening weekend sound barrier as the summer movie season of 2018 gets off to an early and auspicious start," said comScore box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian.
Aside from action hero movies, Rodriguez says it's a generally underserved group. Frank Rodriguez, head of distribution at Fox Searchlight, says the movie's key demographic of males between the ages of 25 and 49 is to thank. "Super Troopers 2" did more than double the numbers that estimates suggested.

2, Dwayne Johnson's "Rampage" collected $21 million in 4,115 theaters in its second weekend. Bumped down to No. That brings its global tally to $283 million. It has crossed the $200 million mark overseas, claiming $57 million this weekend. Luckily, "Rampage" has been able to justify its expensive price tag with a strong international showing. So far, the film has made $66.6 million at the North American box office.

Broken Lizard was formed at Colgate University as a comedy troupe, leading to the micro-budget 1996 comedy "Puddle Cruiser." The film attracted the attention of Harvey Weinstein at Miramax, where "Super Troopers" was originally developed.
"You're never completely sure that it's going to work until then," Pirello added. Pirello and Chandrasekhar agree that getting through the first fan screening on March 19 in Los Angeles was the major milestone.
The 2015 crowdfunding campaign  wound up raising $4.4 million — the second-most successful crowdfunding campaign ever for a movie. It was funded through  Indiegogo with over 50,000 contributors, approaching the $5.7 million record set by the “Veronica Mars” movie on Kickstarter in 2013. Fox Searchlight had agreed to release the sequel if the $2 million goal was met.
Incentives sold on the first day included a producer title for $10,000, a speaking actor role for $10,000, a trip to the ballpark with the main actors for $15,000 and even the patrol car that was used in the filming — $35,000. The 17-city tour was largely for fans who bought the incentive to attend a fan screening prior to the release.
"Harvey had really liked 'Puddle Cruiser' but the indie world was changing and the movie was perceived as a big risk on nobodies," recalled Richard Pirello, who produced both "Super Trooper" films.
"I've been on a 17-city tour for the fan screenings, and we've been going out to party and I've been performing stand-up between the screenings, so it's been a busy time," director Jay Chandrasekhar told Variety.
Seventeen years after the original "Super Troopers," the sequel is arriving in theaters with a massive assist from fans of the wacky police comedy.
"Canadians laughed louder at the insults to the United States." "What I've found is that humans do laugh at the same things everywhere," Chadrasekhar said.
The quintet play profane Vermont state troopers with a penchant for pranks and feuding with other local law enforcement officers. The film reunites all five Troopers from the original film — Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske — collectively known as Broken Lizard. “Super Troopers 2” begins opening Thursday night in North America in previews and expands to 2,040 locations Friday.

Though its $23 million worldwide gross was not remarkable, it became a cult favorite, beloved by buzzed viewers in the same way "Animal House" was a generation before. The sequel's opening was therefore planned for 4/20. The first “Super Troopers” was made for $1.2 million — funded by a single investor — and acquired by Fox Searchlight at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival.
"At one point in Vancouver, we walked into a bar and there were 10 guys dressed like us in state trooper gear," he recalled. "There's a level of fan interest that's very gratifying."
"Once the first film was so successful, there was always this barrage of fan pressure to do the sequel," said Pirello. But then we got to the initial goal of $2 million in a little more than 24 hours." "So after years of that, we had a big debate about using crowdfunding and we were a little worried that we'd fall short.
We’d get pulled over by cops who would thank us and then would let us go." "But it did so well after that it in ancillary markets that it became impossible for us to get away from it. "'Super Troopers' did well but not crazy well theatrically," Chandrasekhar recalled.
The troopers may be back again. "We do have a 'Super Troopers 3: Winter Soldiers' script that we're working on," Chandrasekhar admitted.
The troupe performed in “Broken Lizard Stand Up” for Comedy Central in 2010. Broken Lizard also made 2004’s “Club Dread” and 2006’s “Beerfest,” which grossed $20 million.
