Box Office July 27-29, 2018

Mission: Impossible – Fallout premiered in the Number One spot at the box office over the weekend with $61.5 Million. That is a series opening best for a film in thIS spy, action film franchise.

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! was Second for the second week in a row with $15 Million. That is an impressive hold when one considers that two of the top three films at the box office are action films.

The Equalizer 2 was Third with $14 Million at the box office this weekend. The Equalizer 2 is not performing as well as many had hoped with its drop from first to third after only two weeks of theatrical release.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation was Fourth with $12.3 Million for $119.2 Million so far.

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies premiered in Fifth Place with $10.5 Million.

Ant-Man and the Wasp, Incredibles 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Skyscraper, and The First Purge rounded out the top Ten respectively.

The films in the Top Ten that opened this weekend at the box office:

Mission: Impossible – Fallout is a 2018 American action spy film written, produced and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. It is the sixth installment in the Mission: Impossible film series, and the second film to be directed by McQuarrie, after Rogue Nation (2015), making him the first person to direct more than one film in the franchise. The cast includes Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin, all of whom reprise their roles from previous films, and Henry Cavill and Angela Bassett, who join the franchise.
