The Rock don't stop! Dwayne Johnson is the king of the summer box office, scoring his second huge hit of the year with San Andreas. The disaster film made a whopping $53.2 million at the box office this weekend, easily taking first place. The film did even bigger numbers overseas, taking $60 million outside of the U.S. for a worldwide gross of $113.2 million.

Pitch Perfect 2 came in second place with an additional $14.8 million in its second week of release, followed by Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, which earned $13.8 million, for a total so far of $63.2 million.

Rounding out the top five were Mad Max: Fury Road and Avengers: Age of Ultron, which grossed $13.6 million and $10.9 million, respectively.

Not so good news for the romantic dramedy Aloha, starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams, which bombed in its debut with $10 million for sixth place.

Now that school is out, multiplexes are about to get very crowded. Entourage, Jurassic World and Insidious: Chapter 3 are just three of the new offerings this week. One of them is sure to dethrone San Andreas, but which one will it be?
