Crazy Rich Asians continued its impressive box office run with $25.9 million. With this week’s haul, the film has easily made back its $30 million production budget. It stands at $77 million now and seems a lock to cross $100 million in the next few weeks.
The Meg kept eating with $13.1 million to take its tally to $105.3 million.
The news wasn’t as good for The Happytime Murders. The puppets meets humans murder noir comedy failed to fluff up much interest. It debuted in third place with a dreadful $10.1 million debut.
With a $40 million production budget, this might have a hard time recouping its budget as it doesn’t seem like an obvious winner overseas either.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout claimed the fourth spot with $8.1 million to hit $194 million in its fifth week.
Christopher Robin added another $6.4 million to take its total to $78 million and round out the top 5.
