Box Office: ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ cruises past ‘Christopher Robin’
HOLLYWOOD - Tom Cruise easily conquered Winnie the Pooh at the box office this week.
The sixth installment of the Tom Cruise spy series remains atop the box office, pocketing $124 million in North America to date.
“Christopher Robin” is the first Disney movie aside from “A Wrinkle In Time” to not open No. 1 at the domestic box office this year. The live-action adaptation based on characters from Winnie the Pooh, which carries a $75 million production budget, has garnered mixed reviews. As expected, families made up 60% of audiences.
The R-rated comedy “The Spy Who Dumped Me” — starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon — debuted at No. 3.
“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” landed in fourth for a domestic tally of $91 million. The jukebox musical has brought in $139 million from international markets for an impressive global tally of $230 million
Variety reports that Sony’s “The Equalizer 2” rounded out the top five.
