ForReel Box Office Summary - Crazy Rich Asians dances past The Meg with $25.2 million three day total
Crazy, Rich Asians becomes the third film in three weeks in August to take the top spot at the box office. While its midweek release netted the film $34 million - its three day total sits at $25.2 million just ahead of the Meg and its $21.1 million three day haul.
Meanwhile, Alpha seemed to feed off of another release this week: Mile 22. The nearly identical drop/gain from projections for each film bears this out.
Here's how the top 5 rounded out:
1. Crazy, Rich Asians | $25.2 million ($34 mil/5 day)
2. The Meg | $21.1 million | $83.8 million
3. Mile 22 | $13.6 million
4. Alpha | $10.5 million
5. Mission Impossible: Fallout | $10.5 million | $180.7 million
Next weekend, we have likely our fourth consecutive different box office winner of August with the R rated murder mystery comedy, Happytime Murders. With the other release of A.X.L. a distant second.
