Mission: Impossible - Fallout bests series' opening weekend box office

The "Mission Impossible" series is one of the most popular franchises in Hollywood.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout has totally dominated in its debut at the weekend box office!

In all, there were 4 modifications done to Mission: Impossible - Fallout before it hit theatres.

Mission Impossible - Fallout is released in United Kingdom cinemas on July 26, 2018.

The Paramount/Skydance production took in an estimated $61.5 million for the three-day weekend, according to industry tracker Exhibitor Relations, more than quadrupling the $15 million earned by second-place "Mamma Mia!"

Though the franchise's star, Tom Cruise, has always been a thrill seeker, since 2011's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" - where he climbed the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai - the movies have become a destination to see Cruise pull off some of the most insane stunts ever put on screen, and "Fallout" was no different.

"Paramount was strategically ideal in their marketing and publicity game", said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian.

Word-of-mouth looks to be promising as well as "Fallout" received some of the best reviews for the franchise, both from local and worldwide critics. The 55-year-old was left seriously injured last August after snapping his ankle while perform a jump between two high-rise buildings for the action-thriller.

The previous victor was Mission: Impossible II, which banked a shade under $58 million in the U.S.; by contrast, Rogue Nation's United States opening weekend was $55.5 million.
