'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' Debuts With Franchise Best, $61.5M Opening

'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' Debuts With Franchise Best, $61.5M Opening

The actor's new spy flick Mission: Impossible - Fallout is on track to earn an estimated $61.5 million in ticket sales at 4,386 theaters in the USA and Canada from Friday through Sunday, easily topping the box office and scoring the highest opening yet for the enduring six-film franchise (not adjusting for inflation).

Fate Of The Furious has a more ethnically mixed crowd than does Mission Impossible, but that probably has something to do with the ensemble cast, whereas Tom Cruise movies generally center around him.

Second place in the United States box office went to Mamma Mia! So we'll have to wait and see where "Fallout" falls in the final tally.

Hollywood star Tom Cruise once again proved his box-office potential in India with his latest outing "Mission Impossible-Fallout".

The animated "Teen Titans Go!".

Amazon Delivers Record Quarterly Profit
The firm said it would raise the price of Prime memberships in the USA by $20, but that doesn't seem to have deterred consumers. Prime Day sales are not included in Q2 earnings . "Advertising is starting to make an impact on our gross profit", he said.

Denzel Washington's The Equalizer 2 slid to third with United States $14 million in weekend two, and Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation took fourth with USA $12.3 million.

Sony's "The Equalizer" - the first sequel of Denzel Washington's career - took in $1.9 million from 11 territories for an global tally of $6.1 million. To the Movies, is poised to earn about $10.5 million from 3,297 domestic theaters, good for fifth place.

Sixth place went to Marvel Studios' "Ant-Man and the Wasp".

Highlights include a $24.6 million opening in South Korea, 22% above Rogue Nation, followed by the UK ($9m), India ($7m), Indonesia ($5.5m), Taiwan ($5.4m), Mexico ($4.8m), Russian Federation ($4m), Brazil ($3.8m), United Arab Emirates ($3m), Hong Kong ($2.8m), Malaysia ($2.6m), Philippines ($2.2m), Singapore ($1.8m), Spain ($1.7m), Vietnam ($1.2m) and Colombia ($1m). Considering it picked up over $7 million over the weekend, from the healthy domestic box office alone, we can expect the supers to pick up an official Billion Club invitation any day now. The Sony film, which has outpaced its predecessors at the box office, continues to resonate with audiences, which have spent around $237 million on it globally. Those global coins make all the difference sometimes!
