Monday Morning Box Office Report: Mission: Impossible – Fallout Sets New M:I Franchise Record


After 22 years, Tom Cruise and the Mission: Impossible movie franchise are still reaching new heights with the sixth installment scoring the best debut ever for the series over the weekend. Mission: Impossible – Fallout pulled in $61.5 million, which is about $4 million more than Mission: Impossible II made back in 2000 (yes, M:I II held the record up until now). That still seems pretty low given all the acclaim and hype for this movie (heck, Ant-Man and the Wasp just made $75 million a couple weeks ago) but it has all of August to keep raking in money and these movies always do well overseas. Elsewhere Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again remained in second place, pulling ahead of The Equalizer 2 which fell to third while Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation dropped to fourth. The weekend’s other new release, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies, opened in fifth with a tepid $10.5 million.

    M:I’s audience is older and older demos tend not to rush out on opening weekend. It will definitely outpace Ant-Man in the long run.
