The all-Asian cast film raked in over $30 million over the holiday
Crazy Rich Asians has broken an 11-year-old Labor Day Weekend record.
Having already topped the US box office during its opening weekend earning $34 million, the Jon M Chu film was on track to dominate Labor Day Weekend.
It has since been reported that the all-Asian cast film has exceeded expectations. As of Monday 3 September, Crazy Rich Asians brought in over $30 million over the long holiday weekend.
2007’s Halloween was the last film to earn that much money over the holiday. Prior to that, The Six Sense brought in $29.3 million in 1999.
In total, Crazy Rich Asians has made over $111 million since it premiered in mid-August 2018.
