Daily Box Office Report
Monday, August 20, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Warner’s Crazy Rich Asians took in $3.631 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for a sixth consecutive day. On the heels of Sunday’s very impressive daily hold, Crazy Rich Asians held up very nicely on Monday by declining 59.5 percent from Sunday. Crazy Rich Asians is outpacing expectations with a six-day start of $38.908 million. That is just 2.3 percent behind the $39.810 million six-day launch of 2011’s The Help, which declined 53.7 percent on its first Monday to gross $3.891 million. As was the case with The Help, it is appearing highly likely that Crazy Rich Asians is in store for a lengthy box office run throughout the rest of August and well into September.

Fellow Warner Bros. release The Meg placed in second with $2.183 million. That represented a 65.8 percent decline from Sunday and a sharp 52.0 percent decline from last Monday. It should be noted that holdovers in general saw significant percentage declines from last Monday, due in part to the summer moviegoing season now rapidly approaching its end. The Meg has grossed a far stronger than expected $85.943 million in eleven days, which places the film 28.3 percent ahead of the $66.973 million eleven-day take of fellow Warner Bros. release Rampage earlier this year.

STXfilms’ Mile 22 claimed third place with $1.396 million. Mile 22 was down 60.5 percent from Monday’s performance. The four-day start for Mile 22 stands at a softer than expected $15.107 million. Mile 22 is running an underwhelming 30.8 percent behind the $21.820 million four-day launch of previous Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg collaboration 2016’s Deepwater Horizon, which decreased 67.1 percent on its first Monday to gross $1.596 million.

Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout followed in fourth with $1.068 million. Mission: Impossible – Fallout declined 66.2 percent from Sunday and a sizable 49.4 percent from last Monday. With a strong 25-day gross of $182.080 million, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is running 14.8 percent ahead of the $158.567 million 25-day take of 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and is now just $12.962 million away from the $195.042 million final domestic gross of Rogue Nation.

Disney’s Christopher Robin rounded out Monday’s top five with $984,236. Christopher Robin decreased 62.1 percent from Sunday and a respectable 45.6 percent from last Monday. Thanks in part to continued strong holding power; Christopher Robin has grossed $67.863 million in 18 days. That places Christopher Robin 22.3 percent ahead of the $55.482 million 18-day take of 2016’s Pete’s Dragon.

Sony’s Alpha placed in sixth with $916,295. Alpha declined a sharp 68.2 percent from Sunday, which points towards the film being much more of a weekend film. Alpha is outpacing its modest expectations with $11.269 million in four days. The film is running 17.4 percent behind the $13.637 million four-day start of 2015’s Max, which decreased 55.1 percent on its first Monday to gross $1.482 million.
