Movie Money Refinanced: Episode XI

ALL KNEEL BEFORE THE POWER OF THE NUN! She needs no introduction since she blasted straight into the top 5 at number 1 this week. The...5th? film in the Conjuring Universe is yet another in the series to open with a dominating position in the box office. It made $53.8M domestically, and worldwide it's made an insane $130M. All on a budget of $22M. That's a success story if I ever saw one, and although reviews haven't been kind to this entry, safe to say 'The Nun' will be content counting the millions she brings, in the weeks to come. At number 2 we have another newbie. Another 'Taken' clone from Luc Besson, this time starring Jennifer Garner as an avatar for vengeance. It brought in $13.4M which coincidentally is it's current rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film cost $25M to make and has only made $14M worldwide. Moving on from that we have those 'Crazy Rich Asians' getting crazy rich again, trailing behind pepperment by a mere $300k with $13.1M. I don't really need to express just how successful this movie has been again, but this week the film that cost $30M to make, shot up to $164M worldwide so, yeah that sequel is still coming. Number 4 went to 'The Meg', trudging along slowly but surely to that coveted $500M worldwide total. Currently its total is at $492M after bringing in $6M and having its domestic total finally top its…

Movie Money Refinanced: Episode X

August has been a very telling month for the weekend box office. It's had a few surprises despite being very much the same every week. Now as September approaches, perhaps there's gonna be a bit more of a shake up week to week in the top 5. As it stands we've had some movies clean house the last few weeks simply because, well, if no one else is gonna do it... Case in point, the number 1 movie this week was once again, 'Crazy Rich Asians' making $22.1M in its 3rd weekend, but 4 day weekend totals actually bring it up to $28.3M. The film has brought in $110.8M domestically, and a worldwide gross of $136.9M, all on a $30M budget. It's consistently had weekends between $20-$30M, giving it one of the most consistent releases of the year. It's not the only mainstay this week either. Number 2 this week goes to we have 'The Meg' with $10.5M over the 3 day weekend, and $13.4M at the 4 day total. Domestically the film has grossed at $123.4M, just shy of its $130M budget, but the true majesty is with its $465.7M worldwide gross, which will surely bring 'The Meg' to being a $500M movie, or just shy of it. Receiving a nice bump from last week, it's 'Mission Impossible Fallout'. Once again Ethan Hunt holds on for dear life in the top 5, this weekend bringing in $7M on the 3 day…
