Some hunt for true love, others are primordial – and at least at the box office the Romantics are more successful: the comedy "Crazy Rich Asians" registered $ 25 million on its first weekend in North America (22 million euros) as the "Hollywood Reporter" reported.
This was the production of Warner Bros. number one in the charts, followed by "The Meg." The thriller, which deals with the attack of a giant shark, committed $ 21 million (€ 18 million) in the second weekend.
Love in a World of Glamor
In "Crazy Rich Asians", a New Yorker accompanies her partner in his hometown of Singapore. There she is surprised by the fact that the man's family is one of the richest in Asia – the beginning of a story about how pure love can be in a world of glamor. In Austria the super-rich spectacle is released on the 23rd of August under the title "Crazy Rich".
The newcomer "Mile 22" landed on the third place of the cinema tickets. The action strip, in which Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg fights as an elite agent against terrorists, did not meet expectations. He had received many negative reviews and only played $ 13.5 million (twelve million euros).
