The Predator won a Pyrrhic victory at the box office over the weekend, taking #1 but also having the worst opening ever for a movie in over 4,000 theaters, taking that spot away from Tom Cruise’s The Mummy.
Crazy Rich Asians remained on top of the box office for another weekend with one of the lowest drops ever between a first and second weekend while The Meg remains strong domestically and worldwide and the other new releases disappointed, if not outright bombed in the case of AXL.
Crazy Rich Asians took the box office title out of the mouth of The Meg and topped the weekend box office while Mile 22 underperformed and Alpha and Mission: Impossible Fallout were neck and neck for the fourth and fifth spots.
Blowing past even the most optimistic expectations, The Meg took the top spot at the box office with over $45 million, which gave Jason Statham his best non-Fast & Furious opening of all time.
Mission Impossible: Fallout had the biggest opening of the MI franchise and the second biggest opening for star Tom Cruise while Teen Titans Go! underperformed in their big screen debut.
