22 years since the Mission Impossible franchise started and the film continues to pay off at the box office. Countless bruises and a broken ankle along with Tom Cruise’s death-defying stunt managed to rake some good business for the makers which include the actor himself. The film has collected $153.5 million worldwide in its opening weekend itself. The film collected 92 million dollars from 36 international markets while it opened with a record 62.5 million dollars in North America, as per Variety report.
The Tom Cruise-starrer, which holds a 178 million dollars price tag, has also received some of the best reviews for the franchise.
Also, Mission Impossible: Fallout took the no.1 spot on the US domestic charts this weekend. Paramount Pictures estimates that it earned US dollars 61.5 million from 4,386 North American theatres. It’s best for the long-running franchise, which has collected US $2.8 billion worldwide.
The film had its lead actor Tom Cruise with a broken ankle while performing a jump between two high-rise buildings for the action-thriller. Despite the injury, he returned to the sets in January without the ankle being fully healed.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the movie also stars Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan, Sean Harris, and Alec Baldwin. Meanwhile, 'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again' minted 26.6 million dollars from 46 markets, taking its international total to 96.8 million dollars.
