- Warner Bros.’ “The Meg” earned $44.5 million to win the weekend box office.
- That doubles the industry projection for the movie.
- It’s now the highest-grossing live-action shark movie ever (not counting inflation), and the biggest opening this summer for a non-sequel movie.
Just how good has this year’s summer box office been to Hollywood? Even a shark movie that has more of a “Sharknado” feel than “Jaws” is making a killing at the multiplex.
