NEW YORK (AP) — It's official: "Crazy Rich Asians" is a box-office sensation.

The adaptation of Kevin Kwan's bestselling novel, starring Constance Wu and Henry Golding, brought in almost as many moviegoers in its second weekend as it did over opening weekend. The Warner Bros. release grossed $24.8 million in ticket sales, according to final figures Monday, a tiny drop from its $26.5 million debut the previous weekend.

Second-week drops are more commonly closer to 50 percent. Warner Bros. has said a sequel is already in development.

The weekend's new releases disappointed. STX Entertainment's critically slammed R-rated puppet caper "The Happytime Murders" debuted with a mere $9.5 million, a career-low wide release for star Melissa McCarthy. The robot-dog fantasy "A.X.L.," from the beleaguered Global Road Entertainment, flopped with $2.8 million
