Another weekend, another victory at the US box office for Crazy Rich Asians, which once again showed an impressively small drop in business, earning $22.2 million, according to studio estimates, while a batch of newcomers couldn't compete.

This weekend is the Labor Day holiday across the pond, which means all the movies get an extra day to earn money, so expect the CRA total to rise across the four days. For now, though, it has handily crossed the $100 million mark in the States and is up to $130 million worldwide, with several territories still to open.

The remainder of the top three stayed mostly the same, with The Meg clamping its jaws to second place for $10.5 million, and Mission: Impossible – Fallout reclaiming third after a brief drop, adding $7 million to leap over the $200 million domestic total point.

In fourth was the week's first newcomer, Nazi hunting drama Operation Finale, which took in $6 million. And screen-based thriller Searching followed up its limited release last week by adding screens and jumping up to fifth with $5.7 million. Which might not seem huge, but is impressive given that it's on just 1,207 screens as opposed to Asians' 3,865.

Christopher Robin made $5 million at sixth, with Alpha also learning to sit in place, staying seventh on $4.4 million. In eighth, we find The Happytime Murders, sinking fast after a dismal response. BlacKkKlansman was ninth, taking home $4.4 million, while Mile 22 fell to 10th and $3.5 million.
