San Andreas earned more than $53 million to take the top spot at the box office during its opening weekend, marking the largest ever opening for Dwayne Johnson outside the Fast & Furious franchise.

Despite poor critical reception, Johnson’s disaster movie easily beat second-place finisher Pitch Perfect 2, which earned $14.8 million in its third weekend in theaters, according to estimates from box office tracker Rentrak.

Tomorrowland ($13.8 million), Mad Max: Fury Road ($13.6 million) and Avengers: Age Of Ultron ($10.9 million) rounded out the top five. Aloha, which has an all star cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams, opened in sixth place with only $10 million in earnings.
