Crazy Rich Asians and The Meg are both from Warner Brothers, so they are enjoying a nice ride right now. The Meg had a $130 Million budget so they haven’t made their money back yet, but Crazy Rich Asians is more than making up for it with their $30 Million budget. MI: Fallout is still performing strong, it just boasted a $77 Million opening in China. Mile 22 ($50 Million budget) continues to struggle and puts STX Studios in a bind with two back to back bombs. They are also responsible for Happy Time Murders, which had a budget of $40 Million and hasn’t cracked half that. BlaKkKlansman and Crazy Rich Asians were the surprise hits of the summer. Both movies featured diverse casts with non-typical stories. Hollywood normally leans on A-List actors for success, but these movies are proving the opposite.
