MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT Cruises Past $500 Million Worldwide As China Release Date Nears

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]
As the summer movie season winds down, Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout continues to prove itself as an absolute box office juggernaut and has now topped $500 million worldwide.


The Chris McQuarrie-directed action blockbuster brought in $10.5 million stateside in its fourth frame, taking its domestic total to $180.7 million and its foreign tally to $320.7 million. The film has now earned a grand total of $501.4 million ahead of its China debut on August 31 and if it meets expectations there, then box office pundits are projecting a potential $750 million global finish, which would be both a franchise-best and a career-best for Cruise.

Fallout is now the sixth-highest grossing film of the year domestically – pacing approximately 15% ahead of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation at the same point in its release cycle – and the ninth-highest grossing film of the year worldwide, recently topping Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp ($465.6M)

As for the rest of the domestic top ten, Warner Bros.’ critically-acclaimed romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians topped the box office with $25.2 million ($34.7 million 5-day total) while last week’s champ, The Meg, saw a steep drop to second, finishing with $21.1 million. The monster shark feature has now earned $314.1 million worldwide ($83.7M domestic; $230.4M foreign).

Fellow newcomers, STX’s critically-reviled Mark Wahlberg-led actioner Mile 22 and Studio 8’s well-received Alpha both stumbled out of the gate. Mile 22 finished third, bringing in just $13.6 million in its opening frame on an estimated production budget in the $30 million to $50 million range while Alphafinished tied for fourth with $10.5 million on an estimated $51 million production budget.

Disney’s Christopher Robin ($8.8M; $89.6M worldwide total), Focus’ BlacKkKlansman ($7M; $24.9M worldwide total), ScreenGems’ Slender Man ($4.9M; $21.1M worldwide total), Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation ($3.6M; $425.9M worldwide total), and Universal’s Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again ($3.3M; $319M worldwide total) rounded out the top ten.
