“The Meg” Devours P63.4-M In 5 Days, Opens At No.1 In PH

Warner Bros. Pictures’ giant shark thriller “The Meg” took the biggest bite off the Philippine box office this weekend to open at No.1.

The Jason Statham actioner grossed a splashy P63.4-million for the five-day opening weekend (Aug. 8 to 12) in only 274 screens, becoming Warner’s best opener for the year todate after “Rampage” (P59.7-M) and “Tomb Raider” (P57.6-M).

The slasher film’s above-expectations performance bodes well for its anticipated robust second frame. “The Meg” will continue playing in IMAX and 4D screens this week, enabling moviegoers to still enjoy the ocean-bound adventure’s escapist fun.

“The Meg’s” worldwide total gross now stands at $141-M, including $44.5-M in North America.
