Weekend Actuals: ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Races to $61.2M; ‘Teen Titans Go!’ Debuts with $10.4M

Monday Update:

Mission: Impossible – Fallout earned a confirmed $61.2 million opening.

Total box office this weekend earned $155.6 million, a 9 percent drop from last weekend but up 8 percent from the same frame last year.

Year-to-date box office stands at $7.32 billion, up 8.3 percent from last year, down slightly from the +8.5 percent after last weekend.

Our full table of weekend actuals is below, after our Sunday update with fuller analysis.


Sunday Update:

There was little fallout for the Mission: Impossible franchise, as the sixth installment Mission: Impossible – Fallout debuted to $61.5 million this weekend. In dollars, that’s the Paramount franchise’s highest opening, besting 2000’s Mission: Impossible II.

Adjusted for ticket price inflation, though, it’s almost the opposite story. It actually becomes the franchise’s second lowest opener, ranking only ahead of 2011’s Ghost Protocol. (And that was the only installment to open in December, a month when most films besides Star Wars traditionally open lower.)

Riding on a wave of sensational reviews, the sequel’s sizzling Rotten Tomatoes “Fresh” rating of 97 percent provided it an extra boost that created added excitement for moviegoers who have been promised what some critics have described as the best entry in the series yet.

55% of the audience was male, while 59% were over age 35. It’s also the series’ first installment to earn an “A” CinemaScore from audiences.

Coming in second is Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which dipped 57 percent in its sophomore frame to $15.0 million. That’s a significantly steeper drop than 2008’s first Mamma Mia!, which fell just 36 percent in its second weekend. Universal’s sequel has earned $70.4 million through its second frame, higher than the original through the same point in dollars but 13 percent behind when adjusting for ticket price inflation.

Last weekend’s top title The Equalizer 2 dropped to third in its sophomore frame, falling 61 percent to $14.0 million. That gives Sony’s R-rated Denzel Washington action sequel $64.2 million after two frames, putting it almost exactly even with the first Equalizer through the same point, although running 11 percent behind when adjusting for ticket price inflation. The film suffered stiff competition from the male-driven Fallout this weekend.

In fourth place, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation had another decent hold, dropping 48 percent from last weekend’s total to $12.3 million. The Sony animated threequel now has a very good $119.2 million after three weekends (including previews for Amazon Prime members held prior to its wide release), the highest of the three installments through that point. However, it’s running a slight 5 percent behind Hotel Transylvania 2 when adjusting for ticket price inflation.

Opening a bit lower than expected in fifth place is Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, which debuted to $10.5 million. The animated feature – a spinoff of the Cartoon Network series (itself based on a DC comic book) – which made $4.25 million on Friday, including Thursday night previews. It proved more frontloaded than many had anticipated, suggesting the film’s core fanbase came out of the gate for the Warner Bros. Animation release.

The continued strength of both Hotel Transylvania 3 and Incredibles 2 also likely put a dent in the film’s earnings, as families with younger children looking for an animated movie may have opted for the more familiar titles. 41 percent of the audience was under age 18. On the plus side, the film earned a very good 93 percent “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which could give it legs in the weeks ahead.

Sixth place went to Disney-Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, which took in $8.4 million in its fourth weekend of release, a 49% decline. The MCU installment now has $183.1 million, surpassing the $180.2 million total of 2015’s original Ant-Man.

Limited Release:

After debuting in 14 theaters last weekend, the critically-acclaimed Blindspotting expanded to 523 locations with an estimated $1.3 million, giving it a so-so per-theater average of $2,533. The Lionsgate/Summit release’s total is $1.7 million.

Expanding to 158 theaters in its third weekend, A24’s Eighth Grade had another strong frame with an estimated $1.31 million, giving it a very good per-screen average of $8,339. The indie hit directed by comedian and YouTube personality Bo Burnham now has a total of $2.96 million and expands nationwide next weekend.

Overseas Update:

Mission: Impossible – Fallout opened with $92 million in 36 markets, led by South Korea with $24.6 million. The title’s global opening is $153.5 million, the best for the series yet. The film will open in China on August 31, and France (where it primarily takes place) on August 1.

Incredibles 2 just barely misses the billion dollar mark this weekend and should likely reach it on Monday. The title earned $20.0 million in 41 markets this weekend, takings its overseas total to $423.7 million and its global total to $996.5 million.
