WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:The Predator tops the chart with 24MM, which just about matches 2010's Predators, and falls short of the ~30MM the studio expected. International receipts may be needed to recoup for this 88MM pic. The Nun places with 18.2MM on a 66 percent drop not unknown in horror (that said, 85MM domestic so far against a 22MM budgetlooks alright). A Simple Favor shows with a 16MM debut, probably OK against a reported 20MM budget. White Boy Rick, otoh, debuts in fourth with 8.8MM, which is problematic against a 29MM budget. Crazy Rich Asians rounds out the Top Five with 8.7MM and comes in just below 150MM domestic to date.
