‘CRAZY RICH ASIANS’ TOPS BOX OFFICE FOR SECOND WEEK – (08/27/2018)
Warner Bros.’ Crazy Rich Asians topped the box office for the second weekend, with $25 million, registering a drop of just 6%. Even more impressively, Crazy Rich Asians brought in $10.3 million in its second Saturday, the same amount it made last weekend.
This is the third win for Warner Bros. at the box office, and the second weekend in a row that it topped the top two spots, thanks to The Meg, which chomped up $13 million.
Meanwhile, Melissa McCarthy’s gross-out comedy The Happytime Murders bombed with a $10 million opener. Observers say the lackluster numbers came from a low promotional effort, possibly itself due to a C- CinemaScore and two stars on PostTrak.
Hooray for Hollywood: Here are this past weekend’s box office results.
- Crazy Rich Asians — $25 million
- The Meg — $13 million
- The Happytime Murders — $10 million
- Mission: Impossible — Fallout — $8 million
- Christopher Robin — $6.3 million
- Mile 22 — $6 million
- Alpha — $5.6 million
- BlacKkKlansman — $5.3 million
- A.X.L. — $2.9 million
