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.

Netflix Nabs Beverly Hills Cop Sequel

The streamer nabbed the sequel rights from Viacom's Paramount Pictures via a one-time licensing deal, with Bruckheimer set to produce.

Netflix has picked up the rights to make a sequel to Beverly Hills Cop, with Eddie Murphy set to star and Jerry Bruckheimer set to produce, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The project comes after a one-time licensing deal between Netflix and Paramount to produce the latest reboot of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are on board to direct the long awaited fourth installment of the series.

As competitors like Disney and Warner Bros. withhold their movies from Netflix to feed their own streaming services, Paramount has become a ready supplier, or "arms dealer" of sorts, of content and licensing rights for the streaming giant.

Paramount previously took a planned Beverly Hills Cop 4 sequel off the beat. The studio pulled the planned reboot of the popular cop comedy from its scheduled March 25, 2016 release…
