Mission: Impossible – Fallout Box Office Numbers have turned out to be an all-time high for the franchise after the movie came out this weekend. Fallout has got the greatest review of the entire series till date and it did seem a pretty special entry in the franchise surely being one of the best if not the best Mission: Impossible movie! With the money that the movie is going to make, it is a no-brainer that Paramount will look to put out yet another movie in the franchise, but even if they don’t, this movie could work perfectly as a conclusion as it a revitalizer for the franchise!
The last big hits that Tom Cruise had were both the Mission: Impossible movies with Ghost Protocol making the most in the franchise, having earned $694 Million in total, while Rogue Nation was not far behind as it managed to bring in $682 Million. Both the movies were highly acclaimed by the critics as well, getting a 93% score each at the Rotten Tomatoes. This new entry in the franchise can easily beat that as it has already broken the opening weekend record for the movie franchise.
Rogue Nation opened at $55 Million for the opening weekend which were the second highest numbers for the franchise as previously, Mission: Impossible II brought in $57 Million in the first three days. Mission: Impossible – Fallout has proven to be the best movie in the franchise yet as not only does it have a huge rating of 9.2 on IMDb a score of 98% on Rotten Tomatoes, it now also has the highest numbers for the opening weekend having grossed $61.5 Million in 3 days at the US Box office.
When it comes to the worldwide Box Office, the franchise has managed to stack a total of $153 Million and it does look to become the highest grossing Mission: Impossible movie finally breaking the $700 Million mark. It will be confirmed by the second weekend whether the movie has legs to stand for a longer run or not. There is no real competition coming in for Fallout and it may lead the Box Office for the next two weeks if Jason Statham’s The Meg does not turn out to be big.
Many analysts were predicting the movie to be the biggest movie opening for Tom Cruise which would have seen the movie go past Austin Powers in Goldmember which grossed $73 million in its debut back in 2002, as some forecasts actually saw the unrealistic $75 Million mark possible for Fallout. Well, it did not do that, but it did assure that Paramount has invested the $178 Million very wisely in this incredibly awesome movie by Christopher McQuarrie.
Even though the movie did not have the presence of Jeremy Renner as Agent Brandt, it did not necessarily miss him as Henry Cavill’s double Agent was a great addition to the franchise. He added a brute force to the movie which was necessarily needed as a support to Tom Cruise’s daring Ethan Hunt. Still, the movie seems to have opened the gate of Agent Brandt’s return in the next Mission: Impossible movie if Tom Cruise “chooses to accept” yet another sequel.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie and produced by JJ Abrams, MI 6 brings in an all-star cast with many familiar actors returning from the previous Mission: Impossible movies and along with them, we will see the new faces of Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby, Angela Bassett, Frederick Schmidt and Wes Bentley while the old cast returning in this movie is Ving Rhames as Luthor, Rebecca Ferguson as Ilsa Foust, Sean Harris as Solomon Lane, Simon Pegg as Benji, Alec Baldwin as former CIA Chief Hunley, Michelle Monaghan as Julia Meade and obviously Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt.
Here’s the official Synopsis:
“Ethan Hunt and the IMF team join forces with CIA assassin August Walker to prevent a disaster of epic proportions. Arms dealer John Lark and a group of terrorists known as the Apostles plan to use three plutonium cores for a simultaneous nuclear attack on the Vatican, Jerusalem and Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the weapons go missing, Ethan and his crew find themselves in a desperate race against time to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.”
