WBin what is usually considered a slower period at the box office with families heading back to school. Last month, the studio successfully marketed "Crazy Rich Asians" to Asian-American audiences hungry for representation and "The Meg" to fans of campy monster flicks, and now it looks like they've gotten the word out on "The Nun" to the fanbase of "The Conjuring."
The result? All three WB titles are in the top five this weekend. Below "The Nun," "Crazy Rich Asians" is in second with an estimated $13 million in its fourth weekend. That total will push the rom-com's domestic total to $135 million, putting it in position next week to become WB's top domestic grosser of 2018 so far. "The Meg," meanwhile, is looking at a third weekend of $5.2 million, putting it in fourth on the charts after a 51 percent dropoff. It now has an estimated domestic total of $130 million.

That's just a step below the $13.7 million opening for STX's last action release, "Mile 22," last month. While critics panned the film with a 14 percent RT score, audiences gave the Jennifer Garner film a better CinemaScore grade than "The Nun" with a B+.
Sony/Screen Gems' "Searching" completes the top five with a $4.4 million third weekend after expanding to 2,009 screens. Outside the top five, Entertainment Studios' faith-based drama has fallen below tracker expectations with an opening of just $1.2 million from 1,235 screens.
