WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Crazy Rich Asians threepeats atop the holiday chart with 28.3MM as it breaks 100MM domestic. That's a 14 percent increase (and only an 11 percrnt dop over the regular weekend).The Meg places again with another 13.4MM on a rougly 5 percent increase for the holdiay. It's still not a great performer here, but is well over 400MM in total worldwide receipts. Mission: Impossible - Fallout shows with another 9MM as it closes in on Ghost Protocol as second-highest in the series (it will likely beat M:I2's 215MM to become the biggest). Operation Finale debuts in the fourth slot with 7.8MM and seeems like a bad choice to dump it on the Labor Day weekend. Searching rounds out the Top Five with 7.7M, an obviously massive percentage increase as it expanded wide from its showing last weekend as 22nd on the chart.
