Posted by at 9:36 am on July 27, 2018

Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout soared to $6 million on Thursday night. The earnings (from 3,300 North American locations) are well above Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’s 2015 preview gross of $4 million.

Paramount’s sixth installment of the franchise is expected to dominate the weekend with forecasts ranging from $50 million to $65 million at 4,386 sites. Mission: Impossible – Fallout arrives as the best-reviewed title in the series with a stellar 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. Cruise’s Ethan Hunt and the Impossible Mission Force join with CIA assassin August Walker, played by Henry Cavill, to prevent a global nuclear attack.

Warner Bros.’ Teen Titans Go! to the Movies took in $1 million from Thursday night previews. The animated film has a surprising 96% approval on Rotten Tomatoes and hopes to scoop up between $13 million and $19 million as the only other wide release of the weekend. Based on the DC Comics TV series created by Michael Jelenic and Aaron Horvath, the animated family film follows the eponymous heroes, who attempt to convince a Hollywood director to make a movie about them.

Cruise has been promoting Fallout by detailing one of the film’s major stunts, in which he fell at 200 mph to complete a skydiving scene that required 106 takes. The three-minute scene takes place above Paris at sunset as Cruise and Cavill skydived at 25,000 feet into a lightning storm. On Thursday night, James Corden showed an 11-minute clip on the Late Late Show in which the terrified talk show host joined the star for a skydive from 15,000 feet.

Thursday night showings at Imax locations contributed $1 million to the $6 million take for Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
