Crazy Rich Asians Rules The Box Office

Turns out the giant shark was no match for a roaring tiger. After one week at the top of the US box office charts, The Meg lost its spot to new arrival Crazy Rich Asians, which opened to a $25.2 million weekend, according to studio estimates.

And that was just the three days, as the new movie actually opened Wednesday, earning $34 million in total, ahead of expectations. Yet Warner Bros. won't be too unhappy, since the studio owns both the top two movies. The Meg may have sunk to second place, but it took in $21.1 million and has earned more than $83 million in a couple of weeks.

Third place went to the second new arrival, the latest Mark Wahlberg/Peter Berg team-up Mile 22, which took in a slightly lacklustre $13.6 million. That was still enough to open ahead of fellow launch Alpha, with the wolf pic sinking its teeth in $10.5 million in fourth. All that new arrival action meant Mission: Impossible – Fallout was pushed down to fifth, though it's a close run thing as it also earned $10.5 million.

Christopher Robin fell to sixth on $8.8 million, with BlacKkKlansman adding a few screens yet still slipping a couple of places to seventh and $7 million. In eighth, horror movie Slender Man crept off with $4.9 million, with Hotel Transylvania 3 treading water at ninth and $3.6 million. Finally, in 10th, we find Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which added $3.3 million to its US total, which currently stands at $111.2 million.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown's Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw's sister — these…
