Number two spot goes to dark comedy-thriller, A Simple Favor. The film brought in around $11 million for a total domestic number of $33 million. The film was only cost $20 million. The film stars Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, and Henry Golding. The director is Paul Feig.
I'm not surprise to see book-based films taking over the box office once again. It's always wise of Hollywood to place their bet on stories written by authors. This time around is Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment with The House with a Clock in its Walls and Lionsgate with A Simple Favor. Crazy Rich Asians is still doing great as it went to fifth place. It made another $ 7 million for a domestic total of $159 million and an overall total of $206.4 million. The film only cost a budge of $30 million. So, I can't wait to hear more news about book-based films being made by the studios as you can clearly see that it's a great path to go. Perhaps more indie authors would get notice in the process as well (e.g Andy Weir with The Martian: novelpro.weebly.com/latest-news/the-martian-wins-again-number-1-for-the-2nd-week-in-a-row). Take care readers and have a great day.
