ForReel Box Office Prediction: Crazy Rich Asians/Mile 22 look to take down The Meg
Last weekend The Meg surprised everyone with a $44.5 million dollar opening - roughly twice their studio projections for the film. Crazy Rich Asians is the real wildcard - strong pre-sales and a mid week release (close to $6 million Wednesday) has it looking to sneak just ahead of the Meg.
Here's how we see the top 5 breaking down:
Crazy Rich Asians | $29 million***
The Meg | $21 million
Mile 22 | $19 million
Mission Impossible: Fallout | $12 million
Alpha | $6.5 million
***Denotes mid week release
Our question to you is this: Should films that release mid week be given those extra days to count towards their weekend total or should it be the same for all films of a given weekend? Let us know in the comments!
