That's a great sophomore weekend for Cruise and company, and "Mission: Impossible 6" is still making waves overseas.
The critically acclaimed sequel solidified another milestone this weekend as it proved to have the best sophomore showing out of every entry in the series, thus far.
The film is now the biggest Mission: Impossible grosser in India as it has surpassed the lifetime collections of the last in the franchise, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, in one week flat.
"Christopher Robin", Disney's live-action adaptation based on characters from Winnie the Pooh, picked up an additional $4.8 million internationally for a global start of $29.5 million. Sony's "The Equalizer 2" rounded out the top five, picking up US$8.7 million.
China has banned the new Disney flick "Christopher Robin" - apparently because President Xi Jinping is furious at the string of memes comparing him to Winnie the Pooh. It had $91.3 million banked over three weeks. This looks to be on par with the first Hotel Transylvania, which took in $148 million in 2012, while Hotel Transylvania 2 brought $169 million to the table in 2015.
Describing it as "one of our smaller films", Cathleen Taff, head of distribution for Disney, confirmed that it had been denied a China release. Comedy continues to struggle at the box office.
Newcomer "The Darkest Minds" earned US$5.7 million when it launched on 3,127 screens. "Black Panther" on Saturday became just the third film to cross $700 million domestically.
