Mission: Impossible — Fallout Might Open To An All-Time High Opening Weekend


Mission: Impossible — Fallout Might Open To An All-Time High Opening Weekend

Tom Cruise’s newest Mission Impossible installment titled Mission: Impossible — Fallout is arriving in theaters today (Friday, July 27). Well, the buzz around the movie is so high that movie analysts are expecting the film to open to an all-time high opening weekend for Cruise. The film boasts a 98 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is the best score for a Mission: Impossible film, as well as for any Cruise film.

Box Office Pro is estimating Mission: Impossible — Fallout’s opening weekend numbers could go as high as $75 million. The film is likely to rake in around $70 million in the first three days of release. The last MI franchise film, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation opened to a final weekend of $55.5 million in late August 2015, grossing a global box office total of $682.7 million. 2011 released Mission: Impossible –  Ghost Protocol earned the most globally, $694.7 million.

The Mission: Impossible series, which began in 1996, has since grossed $2.7 billion worldwide. It has, in fact, become one of the most ambitious action franchises ever. The only thing that has not changed in all the six Mission Impossible movies is Tom Cruises’ Ethan Hunt who is an agent of the fictional Impossible Missions Force (IMF).

Talking more about Mission: Impossible — Fallout, the film’s plot follows Ethan Hunt and his IMF team members as they try to outsmart a CIA agent (Henry Cavill) who is trying to kill them after an assignment gone wrong. Some of the actors who are reprising their roles from previous MI films include Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan, and Sean Harris. Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby, and Sian Brooke are some of the new additions to the film.

Mission: Impossible — Fallout is director Christopher McQuarrie’s second MI film, the first being Rogue Nation. The USP of the film is Tom Cruise’s signature death-defying stunts including the highly dangerous HALO (high altitude, low opening) jump and his helicopter stunt. The 56-year-old actor, who does not believe in using a body double for performing action scenes, even broke his ankle while shooting for an action sequence in the film.

Mission: Impossible — Fallout is currently running in theatres.
