I think J-Mart is cooking the books at his theater, Crazy Rich Asians, because it topped the box office once again this week. This makes it the most successful studio rom-com in the last 9 years at the U.S. Box Office. Mission: Impossible – Fallout is still in the top five, six weeks deep. And Operation Finale came in the fourth spot in it’s first week. Searching made a big jump from twenty-second to fifth in it’s wide release this week.
