Except for the very good “Operation Finale,” this Labor Day weekend is pretty much about holdovers from the summer.
Today, “Crazy Rich Asians” will get a lot richer. Jon M. Chu’s breakout hit will cross the $100 million line in the US. Thanks to its release in just four countries– none Asian– the comedy is already at $101 million internationally. Just wait til it really starts playing around the world.
“Mission Impossible: Fallout” will hit the $200 million mark in the US tonight. It’s the most successful of all the “MI” movies, and Tom Cruise’s biggest hit since the last episode. In between, he’s had a string of duds. Cruise is the sequelizer. He was hoping his “Top Gun” sequel would extend that run in 2019, but the update has been postponed until 2020.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” made just $13,000 last night on its 99th day of release. Total $213 million, worldwide including US $385 million.
