Daily Box Office Report
Wednesday, August 29, 2018




By Daniel Garris

Warner’s Crazy Rich Asians took in $2.667 million on Wednesday to lead the daily box office for a 15th consecutive day. Crazy Rich Asians declined 38.0 percent from Tuesday’s performance (which was inflated a bit from the film being a daily MoviePass option on Tuesday) and just 28.6 percent from last Wednesday. The 15-day total for Crazy Rich Asians stands at an exceptional $86.254 million. That places the film 8.3 percent ahead of the $79.657 million 15-day take of 2011’s The Help. Crazy Rich Asians already has a current total gross to opening weekend ratio of 3.25 to 1. Given the film’s continued tremendous holding power, BoxOfficeReport is predicting a four-day third weekend gross of $34.0 million for Crazy Rich Asians.

Fellow Warner Bros. release The Meg held steady in second place with $1.132 million. That represented a 30.8 percent decline from Tuesday (thanks in part to The Meg being a daily MoviePass option on Wednesday) and a solid 40.9 percent decline from last Wednesday (when The Meg was also a daily MoviePass option). The 20-day total for The Meg stands at a far stronger than expected $109.065 million. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that The Meg will take in $13.7 million over the four-day holiday frame to remain in second place.

MGM’s Operation Finale started out in third place on Wednesday with $1.001 million. Operation Finale is playing in a relatively modest 1,818 locations, which gave the film a very solid daily per-location average of $551. Compared to previous Labor Day weekend Wednesday openers, the opening day take of Operation Finale was 3.1 percent ahead of the $0.971 million opening day gross of 2011’s The Debt and 11.9 percent below the $1.136 million opening day take of 2012’s Lawless. Labor Day weekend openers that debut on Wednesday are typically very back-loaded towards the four-day weekend and Operation Finale being a daily MoviePass option this Friday and Sunday could help lead to even further back-loading towards the weekend.

Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout was down one spot from Tuesday to place in fourth on Wednesday with $760,293. Mission: Impossible – Fallout continues to hold up nicely, as the film was down 34.8 percent from Tuesday and down 33.2 percent from last Wednesday. Mission: Impossible – Fallout has grossed $196.640 million in 34 days, which leaves the film just $3.36 million away from reaching the $200 million domestic milestone. BoxOfficeReport is predicting a four-day sixth weekend take of $9.2 million for Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

STXfilms’ Mile 22 was up one spot from Tuesday to round out Wednesday’s top five with $683,948. Thanks in part to being a daily MoviePass option yesterday, Mile 22 was down a slim 26.0 percent from Tuesday and down a solid 36.3 percent from last Wednesday. In the bigger picture, the 13-day total for Mile 22 stands at a softer than expected $27.693 million. BoxOfficeReport is predicting that Mile 22 will gross $5.5 million over the four-day holiday frame.
