'Mission: Impossible -- Fallout' Cruises to #1 with $61.5M Opening

Tom Cruise in a still from Mission Impossible Fallout

So far, in addition to the $61.5M domestic, "Fallout" has already earned $92M overseas for a current total of $153,500,000.

Written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie (who also handled Rogue Nation), Fallout finds super-spy Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his International Monetary Fund colleagues trying to recover stolen plutonium after a mission gone awry.

The sixth installment in the "Mission: Impossible" franchise represented a series best.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation had collected 26.90 crore in its opening weekend and that number would be surpassed by the time the morning shows are through today.

We ride together really well. "The energy in the team is really positive because if it wasn't we wouldn't be trying like that". Demare benefited from the mountains depleting the sprint field the last two weeks.

Other than Cruise, it also stars Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, Wes Bentley, Frederick Schmidt with Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin. It launched domestically with $10.5 million. "Skyscraper" - which has only been out for three weeks - is now barely hanging on in the top 10; its $5.4 million put it at No. 9, ranking below "Incredibles 2", and "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom". The film's overseas opening represented approximately 40% of the worldwide marketplace with openings in France, Australia, Germany and Japan planned for this coming weekend followed by Italy on August 29 and China on August 31.

Denzel Washington's The Equalizer 2 slid to third with U.S. $14 million in weekend two, and Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation took fourth with U.S. $12.3 million. The animated sequel has earned $997 million worldwide, including $424 million internationally. "Here We Go Again" picked up $26.6 million from 46 markets, taking its global total to $96.8 million. France brought in $1.6 million, while Poland opened with $1.2 million.

In third was Sony's "The Equalizer 2", with Denzel Washington again playing a former black-ops agent - and now low-profile Lyft driver - drawn into action to avenge a friend's death.
