‘Crazy Rich Asians’ tops box office again


‘Crazy Rich Asians’ tops box office again

NEW YORK

The opening weekend for “Crazy Rich Asians” was historic. Its second weekend was even more impressive.

The romantic comedy sensation slid just 6 percent from its chart-topping debut to again lead the box office with $25 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. Almost as many people turned out over the weekend for “Crazy Rich Asians” as they did for its opening Friday-to-Sunday bow – an unheard of hold for a nonholiday release.

Rounding out the top five were: “The Meg,” $13 million, second place; “The Happytime Murders,” $10 million, third place; “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” $8 million, fourth place; and “Christopher Robin,” $6.3 million, fifth place.

Fan charged after rushing onstage at Beyonce, Jay-Z show

ATLANTA

Police say they are pursuing more charges against a man who rushed onstage during a Beyonce and Jay-Z concert in Atlanta.

Atlanta Police officer Lisa Bender told The Associated Press that 26-year-old Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell ran on stage, approached Jay-Z and made contact with him as the “On the Run II” concert was ending Saturday night. Police say Maxwell was quickly stopped by security people and backup dancers with the rapper.

Beyonce’s spokeswoman Yvette Noel-Schure says the singer and Jay-Z are fine.

Bender says Maxwell was initially issued a citation for disorderly conduct and released, but police have added a charge of simple battery. He was treated for minor injuries, and Bender says there were no other injuries.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Maxwell has a lawyer.
