39;Crazy Rich Asians' shines bright at the box office

LOS ANGELES-Glitz won out over guns as the gilded romance "Crazy Rich Asians" made its debut at No. 1 in North American theaters over the weekend, surpassing industry expectations and beating out action-packed fare like "Mile 22". This is a pivotal feat for Asian representation in Hollywood, as Crazy Rich Asians is the "first Hollywood studio movie since 1993's The Joy Luck Club to feature an all-Westernized Asian cast".

It's a surefire win for the film, which cost $30 million to produce.

"The film's star, Constance Wu, showed her excitement on Instagram with her caption reading, "#crazyrichasians is certified fresh. and I can't believe we're playing in the DOME!

Based on Kevin Kwan's beloved novel of the same name and directed by Jon M. Chu, the glamorous romantic-comedy has already pulled in $16 million since it's August 15 debut, and is projected to reach an estimated $22 million this opening weekend, according to Variety.

Rounding out the rest of the top five: The PG-13-rated "Alpha", a prehistoric family adventure about a boy who befriends a lost wolf, tied for fourth place with Tom Cruise's latest "Mission: Impossible" installment, "Fallout".
