Monday Morning Box Office Report: Crazy Rich Asians Holds Strong in Second Weekend


Crazy Rich Asians maintained its status over the weekend as the movie stayed at the top of the box office for the second week in a row without too much trouble. The rom-com earned another $25 million and dropped just 5.7% from last week, which is one of the smallest second weekend drops ever. It obviously didn’t hurt that the competition was virtually non-existent; The Meg was a distant second with $13 million while The Happytime Murders was the biggest new release, opening in third with a somewhat lacklustre $10 million. Mission: Impossible – Fallout stayed in fourth with $8 million, continuing on pace for a franchise best, while Christopher Robin rounded out the top 5. Elsewhere, A.X.L. opened in ninth with an unsurprisingly dismal $2.9 million but distributor Global Road has bigger fish to fry as they now face a potential bankruptcy.
