Latest Mission: Impossible tops the weekend Box Office

The sixth and latest film in the Mission: Impossible franchise, which started way back in 1996, opened atop the weekend box office. Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout opened with an estimated $61.5 million domestically. The film also picked up another $92 million in international markets to bring the film’s worldwide cume to approximately $153.3 million. Fallout had the best opening weekend in the franchise, besting 2000’s Mission: Impossible II and 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

Universal’s Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again held the number two spot over the weekend with another $15.0 million while Sony’s The Equalizer 2 dropped two spots to the number three spot with another $14.0 million. Sony Pictures Animations’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation took in another $12.3 million for the number four spot.

Warner Bros. Animations’ Teen Titans Go! To The Movies opened in fifth place over the weekend and earned an estimated $10.5 million. The opening is the lowest film from Warner Animation Group, though with the film’s budget just $10 million dollars the film is still a success.
