It was a bit of a shocker this week as Crazy Rich Asians took the top spot at the Box Office by earning $25.2 million. Not shocking because the film isn’t good, its gotten amazing reviews; its just that Rom-Coms haven’t done this well since 2015’s Trainwreck. CRA had a budget of $30 million and it’s pretty much guaranteed to make it’s budget back in the very near future. An all-Asian cast, great reviews, and #1 at the Box Office; pretty fantastic for the indie gem!

The other new films were the newest Mark Wahlberg film, Mile 22, which took in only $13 million and Alpha which landed in the 4th position with $10 million. Expect both of them to fall off the Top Ten very soon.

1. Crazy Rich Asians $25,235,000
2. The Meg $21,150,000
3. Mile 22 $13,620,000
4. Alpha $10,500,000
5. Mission: Impossible – Fallout  $10,500,000
6. Disney’s Christopher Robin $8,862,000
7. BlacKkKlansman $7,000,000
8. Slender Man $4,965,000
9. Hotel Transylvania 3 $3,675,000
10. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again $3,385,000

Next weekend, we have the release of The Happytime Murders. Harkening back to Peter Jackson‘s Meet the Feebles, the film is a more jacked up version of that film and Avenue Q. It looks fantastic and I doubt we’ll see it in the Top Ten. Find out if I’m right on the next edition of Weekend Roundup!

Talk Talk Episode #121 – The Towelite Academy

We don't like to talk about it all that much, but Chris and Casey are actually adopted brothers. Their billionaire father was quite an eccentric and as they were born on the same day at the same time, their dad was led to assume they'd have mutant powers. Of course,...
