Goldstein said of the industry-leading streak: "1 year has 52 weeks and 12 months. We'd gotten a impartial amount of interpretation for what our publish schedule seemed to be in the summer. But I continued telling that's not about summer. That's about the entire year."

The Nun efficiently scared Crazy Rich Asians into 2nd rank for the first time in 4 weeks run. This rom-com added 13.6 million USD, earn totally 136.2 million USD in North American. 3rd rank went to Peppermint, the R-rated revenge movie of Jennifer Garner, which began as good as expectations to 13.3 million USD.

Paul Dergarabedian, a senior media analyst for box office tracker comScore, said that: "Peppermint was a film which was expected to bring a entirely different choice to The Nun. It's just this overpowering juggernaut". And remnants rounded out top 5 with The Meg in 4th with 6 million USD, and Searching in 5th with 4.5 million USD.

In spite of The Nun's strong accomplishment, the weekend is still down almost 30% from 2017. In last year, It gained a record-breaking debut, however the year general is still up 9.5%.
