We all knew ‘Mission: Impossible — Fallout‘ had a decent chance of breaking multiple records during its opening weekend. The impressive reviews from critics and the record-breaking Thursday night preview set the film up well.
During its opening weekend, the sixth film in the franchise made $61.5 million at the domestic box office, which was a new record for the franchise.
It also made $92 million at the international box office, and that is also a record for the franchise. In total, it’s made $153.5 million globally, and it’s well on its way to becoming the highest grossing film in the Mission: Impossible franchise.
And these impressive numbers might have been even higher had MoviePass allowed its users to buy tickets for the film. The movie ticket subscription service ran out of money this past weekend and basically blocked its users from seeing one of the most talked about blockbusters of the year.
We’re not sure how badly that hurt the opening, but even with the unexpected roadblock, Fallout still broke several records.
We have to imagine everyone involved is celebrating today.[mashshare]
