'Mission: Impossible' tops Winnie-the-Pooh at box office

PUBG Mobile’s new Mission: Impossible content will self-destruct at the end of August

Mission: Impossible - Fallout is one the biggest movies in theatre right now and Paramount has accepted to partner with Tencent for a month-long event of its insanely popular battle royale game, PUBG Mobile.

Falling short of expectations, Disney's fantasy comedy film "Christopher Robin" opened in second place with an estimated 25 million dollars.

The film has brought in 124.5 million dollars in North American theaters through Sunday, according to studio figures collected by comScore.

Overseas, Fallout has earned $205 million so far. It opens in China on August 31. As expected, families made up 60 percent of audiences, while 56 percent of moviegoers were female. Maybe regulators thought the movie was too twee? Inspired by A.A. Milne's classic "Winnie-the-Pooh" books, it tells the story of a now grown-up and stressed-out Christopher reuniting with his old stuffed friend and relearning the joys of childlike imagination. Susanna Fogel directed and co-wrote with David Iserson. Entertainment Weekly, The Guardian, and The Express also gave it a good review.

On the other hand, The Fate Of The Furious, is an action movie that does much better with the millennial generation, which makes a little more sense, considering The Fast And The Furious franchise began in the early 2000's. Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore and Gwendoline Christie round out the cast. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

The latest movie adaptation of a young adult book series was trashed by the critics and ignored by public. His first, "2016 Obama's America", topped out with $33 million. "Here We Go Again" - with its toe-tapping ABBA soundtrack and gorgeous Greek scenery - helped keep the Universal film afloat in fourth place, taking in $9.1 million for a worldwide total to date of $231 million.

Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea may make one more new signing
According to Guardiola, if City sign one more, it will be because he's a "special player", not an "extra player". Ahead of the traditional season curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, Guardiola said: "I don't know".

Meanwhile, Disney's "Black Panther" reached a massive milestone.

"It's one of our smaller films, and it's really focused on character and emotion", said Taff. "It speaks to the incredible storytelling of Kevin Feige and Marvel".

"Incredibles 2", $5 million ($19 million international).

"Ant-Man and the Wasp", $6.2 million ($11.2 million international).

Another A24 title, "Never Goin' Back", opened with $10,000 on just two screens.
