Crazy Rich Asians tops US box office in weekend debut


With an estimated $34 million, Crazy Rich Asians topped industry expectations and came up just shy of Mojo's aggressive, pre-weekend forecast. The film is having a profound impact as the first Asian-led studio film to hit theaters since The Joy Luck Club 25 years ago and word of mouth continues to spread following the film's Wednesday opening.
Made on a reported $30 million production budget*, the film was met with plenty of fanfare heading into the weekend, including a strong 74 rating on Metacritic, and audiences agreed to the tune of an "A" CinemaScore on opening day. Following the film's Wednesday opening, it entered the weekend with $8.8 million in its coffers and is now estimated to have delivered just shy of $25.2 million over the three-day weekend. Looking ahead, the film should surely top $100 million domestically.

Internationally, Crazy Rich Asians debuted in just six markets this weekend, bringing in an estimated $730,000led by the Netherlands with $208k. The film is following a staggered release pattern overseas, with key markets such as Australia opening on August 30 followed by a mid-September release in the UK.
