The Top 5 Highest-Grossing Films in America Over the Weekend

Despite a lukewarm reception, Warner Bros.' shark flick, The Meg, drastically overperformed this weekend, bringing in close to $45m—enough to land at the top of the domestic box office. And two other debuts made the Top 5 this time around. Sony horror movie Slender Man also overperformed at #4, even though it opened to dreadful reviews (and a 15% Rotten Tomatoes score). Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, meanwhile, arrived at #5 with an impressive 97% at Rotten Tomatoes.

1. The Meg (Warner Bros.) $44.5m 4,118/$10,806 avg. (debut)
