LOS ANGELES - "Crazy Rich Asians'' was the most popular film in the United States and Canada for the third straight week, as it was on track to sell $22.2 million worth of tickets so far this weekend.

By the close of business today, the end-of-summer romantic comedy was expected to have cleared $111 million domestically, according to studio estimates collected by analysts at comScore.

"The Meg'' -- the latest scary summer shark movie -- was on track to add another $10.5 million three-day weekend period and attain a North American total of $120.5 million over four weeks.

"Mission: Impossible - Fallout'' was on track for a $7 million take on this, its fifth weekend of showings. It will have brought in $204.3 million through tonight in North America.

A new movie debuted in fourth place: "Operation Finale,'' a thriller based on the true story of the Israeli government's infiltration of an Argentinian Nazi cell, harboring German war criminal Adolf Eichmann. It was on track for $6 million by Sunday night.

"Searching'' was expanded into wide release for the first time, and was on track to open with $5.7 million.

Rounding out the 10 most-popular movies, as estimated by the studios for the first three days of the holiday weekend, were "Christopher Robin'' ($5 million), "Alpha'' ($4.5 million), "The Happytime Murders'' ($4.4 million), "BlacKkKlansman'' ($4.1 million) and "Mile 22'' ($3.6 million).

As Monday is Labor Day, the studios will release four-day sales results tomorrow.
