LOS ANGELES (AP) - Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson out-muscled the competition at domestic movie theaters as Warner Bros.' earthquake epic "San Andreas" hauled in an estimated $53.2 million over the weekend. It was his biggest debut for a movie where he's the top-billed actor, according to box office tracker Rentrak.

"Aloha," the critically maligned romantic comedy from director Cameron Crowe, opened in sixth place with $10 million.

After showings, audiences gave "San Andreas" 3.5 out of 5 stars on average, while giving "Aloha" just 2 out of 5.

Universal's "Pitch Perfect 2" came in second with $14.8 million, Disney's "Tomorrowland" was third with $13.8 million, Warner Bros.' "Mad Max: Fury Road" came in fourth with $13.6 million and Disney's Marvel superhero saga "Avengers: Age of Ultron," which grossed $10.9 million, finished fifth.
