Tom Cruise’s ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Dominates Box Office Again
Tom Cruise’s latest Mission: Impossible movie repeated as box office champion in its second weekend in theaters, earning another $35 million, $10 million ahead of the modest opening of Walt Disney Co.’s latest live action remake, Christopher Robin. The live-action Ewan McGregor vehicle is still sitting pretty critically with an A CinemaScore and a 67 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Third place for the weekend went to Lionsgate’s R-rated comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon. It debuted with $12.4 million on 3,111 locations, far lower than expected.
Also arriving in wide release was poorly reviewed dystopian sci-fi The Darkest Minds, which cost Fox roughly $34 million to make and sold $5.8 million in tickets. Starring Gwendoline Christie, Bradley Whitford, and Mandy Moore, the YA thriller opened in eighth.
