Opening at number one at the box office was The House with a Clock in its Walls. It brought $26.9 million domestically while internationally (in only 14 markets) brought in $3 million. The film is based on a classic children book written by Mr. John Bellairs. Mr. Eli Roth directed the film as it now stands as a new record opening for him. The film starred Jack Black and Cate Blanchette.
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.
For the third week in a row, book-based film Crazy Rich Asian has taken the box office by storm. This labor day weekend the film dropped only 10 % to make $28 million. It has become the third highest Labor Day Weekend haul of all time. More impressive is the fact that it has crossed the $100 million mark domestically. Internationally, Crazy Rich Asian has made a total of $49 million, which brings its overall total to $136 million.
The book-based film, The Meg, continue to do fantastic as well with another $13 million. Its domestic total is now $123 million. It has made $17 million internationally. The Meg overall total now stands at $462 million.
Mr. Kevin Kwan is the author of Crazy Rich Asian while Mr. Steve Alten is the author of The Meg.
For the second week in a row, book-based film, Crazy Rich Asians, ruled the box-office with a superb $25 million. It dropped only 5% which is unheard of nowadays. The movie's domestic total stands at $76. 8 million. Overall, the movie's total is $83 million. The astonish performance of this movie was first a novel written by Kevin Kwan.
The Meg, another book-based film, added another $13 million this past week. It has passed the $100 million mark domestically. More impressive is the movie's international results. It made about $303 million for an overall total of $408 million.
These two films are showing Hollywood that investing and making book-related stories is a sure thing. Just hoping that many more books out there would be made into films especially self-published stories. The Martian should be a perfect example of a successful self-published story turned into a blockbuster movie.
Topping the box office this weekend is the book-based film Crazy Rich Asians. It made $34 million domestically ($25 million of that was from Wednesday and Thursday). The acclaimed novel was written by Kevin Kwan and it stars Constance Wu, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, along with Ken Jeong and Michelle Yeoh. John M. Chu (Now You See Me 2, Step Up 2: The Streets) is the director.
Another book-based film, The Meg, stood at number 2, making another $21 million domestically while making $67 million internationally. Its total now stands at $314 million.
