Here are the winners and losers of the summer 2018 box office

Women of a certain age turned Hollywood standards upside down this summer, as Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen’s comedy Book Club earned a cool $68.6 million at the North American box office, making it one of the season’s surprise hits. Cate Blanchett, 49, and Sandra Bullock, 54, also pounded the patriarchy with Ocean’s 8 ($139 million) and its all-female cast, as did Crazy Rich Asians ($86.2 million after only two weekends and counting), led by Constance Wu and Michelle Yeoh. On a smaller scale, Debra Granik’s latest directorial outing, Leave No Trace, lit up movie critics’ reviews and the specialty box office to the tune of $6 million, and Toni Colette’s Hereditary flexed its girl power to scare up an impressive $44 million, becoming distributor A24’s second-highest-grossing release to date.
