The sixth stunt-filled thriller Mission Impossible again tops box office with Fallout clinging the top spot in North American theatres.
Producer and actor Tom Cruise continued to test the limits of the possible this weekend as “Mission Impossible — Fallout” beats the new Disney film “Christopher Robin.”
Paramount’s “Mission Impossible Fallout,” is the sixth stunt-filled action thriller of the popular franchise. The movie has made the business of an estimated $35 million for the three-day weekend.
Mission Impossible again tops box office, as overwhelming response comes from critics and audiences. Tom Cruise again does his own vertigo-inducing, cliff-hanging, helicopter, and exploding-car stunts. The movie also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill, and Simon Pegg.
Disney´s “Christopher Robin” grabbed second spot with $25 million. Inspired by AA Milne´s classic “Winnie-the-Pooh” books, the movie is based on a stressed-out Christopher Robin who reunites with his old friend and re-learn the joys of childlike imagination. The film stars Ewan McGregor and Hayley Atwell, along with the voices of Brad Garrett and Jim Cummings.
On third spot is Lionsgate´s “The Spy Who Dumped Me,” at $12.4 million. The action comedy stars Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon as friends being chased frantically through Europe after a former boyfriend turns out to be a CIA agent with a pack of killers hot on his trail.
The star power of “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” helped to grab the fourth place, taking in $9.1 million for a worldwide total of $231 million to date. The star cast includes Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Colin Firth, Cher and Pierce Brosnan.
On fifth spot is Sony´s “The Equalizer 2,” with superstar Denzel Washington playing the part of a quiet former black-ops agent. He is drawn back into action to avenge a friend’s death. The movie made $8.8 million in its third weekend.
Disney’s “Black Panther” has made more than $700 million in North America since its release in February. The movie has joined “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Avatar” in that exclusive category.
