Get ready to get your stealth on because Mission: Impossible - Fallout is crashing the world of victor, winner chicken dinners. The movie, which carries a US$75 million production budget, has garnered mixed reviews.
It doesn't look like we can play as Tom Cruise's character in PUBG - sadly - but any association with the action star is likely to help PUBG's fortunes. Tom Cruise won't be making an appearance, I'm afraid.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout had its franchise-best debut last week, pulling in an estimated $61.5 million. Maybe regulators thought the movie was too twee?
A pair of premiering movies held the next two spots: "Disney's Christopher Robin" at $25 million, and "The Spy Who Dumped Me" at $12 million in estimated weekend sales. For that it would need to be ultra strong despite competition around it as it primarily has time till 14th August to make moolah before Gold and Satyameva Jayate arrive.
The final wide release, Dinesh D'Souza's "Death of a Nation", made $2.3 million on 1,032 screens. Here We Go Again whistled up $2.46 million, dropping by a reasonable 37 cent.
Also of note: Disney has announced that "Black Panther" has taken in more than $700 million in North America since its release in February, joining only "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Avatar" in that exclusive category. The Brad Bird-directed comedy has amassed $1.047 billion worldwide: $583 million domestic and $464 million internationally.
Rival studios were eager to position "Christopher Robin" as a misfire for Disney, which has achieved runaway success at the box office over the last three years. The romance drama, led by Chloe Grace Moretz, took in $53,000 when it opened on two screens for a solid average of $26,500.
