The final set of summer movies hit theaters this weekend, which one did you go see? The box office numbers are in! Check out the movies that made it to the top ten, below…

Crazy Rich Asians enjoyed another crazy rich week at the box office, adding $25 million to its growing total. Worldwide, the romantic comedy now has $83.9 million. According to Box Office MojoCrazy Rich Asians was put together with a $30 million budget, so it’s already enjoying a nice profit.

Far being Crazy Rich Asians is Jason Statham’s The Meg with $13 million for the weekend. The shark movie’s grand total is now over $408.6 million. Neither movie is new to the box office, though, where are the debuts?

The Happytime Murders settled for third place with a low $10 million, failing to impress audiences. The R-rated comedy used a budget of $40 million. It has a long way to go before it makes any profit. The number will increase as the movie becomes available in more theaters, but will do well enough for a sequel?
