‘Mission Impossible’ takes no ‘Vacation’ at the box office


There were two new movies to come out this week and they were both able to grab the top two spots at the box office. They battled it out for the top spot with the new Mission Impossible movie topping the box office.

Mission: Impossible Rogue is the top movie this weekend with its estimated $56 million opening. This is the fifth movie of the series and had the second best opening just missing beating out the second Mission Impossible. With the high ratings it’s getting it should do well at the box office.

The other movie to premiere is the reboot/sequel in Vacation. The movie premiered with an estimated $14.8 million. The movie had high expectations base on popular the National Lampoon series is but it fell short in comparison.


Ant-Man drops from the top spot with an estimated $12.6 million. The movie now passes by its $130 million budget and probably earned itself a sequel by Marvel’s standards. Minions took in an estimated $12.2 million and the disappointing Pixelstook in $10.4 million. Jurassic World now moves to the number three spot for all time box office and will likely finish there as it would need another billion dollars to catch up to Titanic.

To see the rest of the box office, you can go here.

There are five big movies coming out this week that are going to be competing against Mission Impossible for the top spot. The new Marvel reboot Fantastic Four is the favorite for the top spot, but the next Gillian Flynn adaptation Dark Places might be the dark horse. Ricki and the Flash, The Gift, and Shaun the Sheep Movie might be able to crack the top five but probably won’t be seen at the top of the box office.
