Mission: Impossible retains its crown on top of US chart
After wowing the crowds in the first week, Tom Cruise’s latest Mission: Impossible foray managed to hold on to the top spot for a second week in the US chart.
The sixth Impossible episode took a further $35m in its second week, taking its domestic tally to $124.5m and looking on course to becoming the highest grossing entry in the series.
Opening in second spot was new entry Christopher Robin, starring Ewan McGregor and the bear with very little brain, in the latest Winnie The Pooh adventure. The much loved creation from AA Milne debuted with a reasonable $25m, holding off fellow newcomer The Spy Who Dumped Me starring Justin Theroux, which took $12.3m.
Following up in the chart were a series of sequels with ABBA-tastic musical Mamma Mia 2 in fourth, Denzel meting out some justice in fifth with Equalizer 2, family fun Hotel Transylvania 3 in sixth, and Ant-Man And The Wasp in seventh, which has currently grossed just shy of $200m in the US.
Bowing in eighth, was new entry The Darkest Minds, starring Mandy Moore, with a lowly $5.8m, while Incredibles 2 and Teen Titans Go! To The Movies complete the top ten.
