Crazy Rich Asians is still going strong in its third weekend, once again finishing in the top spot with an extra $22.2 million, which pushes it past the coveted $100 million mark for a domestic total of $111 million.

The Meg, starring Jason Statham, held onto second place, earning $10.5 million for a domestic total of $120.5 million in its fifth weekend.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout, starring Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill, rose from last weekend’s fourth place finish to third in its sixth week, with an additional $7 million and an amazing domestic total of $204 million.

Debuting in fourth place was Operation Finale, about the 1960 capture of Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann, which opened in the U.S. only. It earned $6 million.

Rounding out the top five was Searching, starring John Cho as a father searching for his missing teenage daughter, which took in $5.7 million in its debut weekend, outperforming early predictions.

    WONDERFUL PICTURE. LOTS OF GOOD LESSONS TO BE LEARNED ABOUT HERE! WHY ARE THERE NOT MORE CHRISTIAN BASED MOVIES OUT THERE.WE LOVE A GOOD MOVIE. THIS IS NOT A RACIALLY BIAS MOVIE AS IT DEALS WITH BOTH RACES. JUST A GOOD WHOLESOME MOVIE THAT WOULD BE GOOD FOR ALL PARENTS OF TEENAGERS TO SEE.THESE MOVIES SHOULD BE ADVERTISED MORE SO THE PUBLIC WILL KNOW THEY ARE OUT THERE FOR US TO SEE.
