MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION Wins The Weekend With $56M Debut; $121M Worldwide

The weekend numbers are in and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation has opened big worldwide! Boasting a 93% fresh on RT and an A- CS, the Tom Cruise-starrer is a thrill ride from start to finish!

Tom Cruise rules once again!

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, the latest installment in his trademark action franchise, has exceeded expectations and opened to an impressive $56 million in North America and another $65 million overseas from forty international markets for a total global collection of $121 million.

The Chris McQuarrie-directed film is currently outpacing the previous installment, Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, by 49% overseas and is yet-to-be released in at least twenty-five markets, including China. For comparison's sake, this summer's other action masterpiece, the George Miller-directed Mad Max: Fury Road, opened to a nice $45 million domestically. 

Additionally, here's some more good news: Paramount Pictures vice chairman Rob Moore has more or less corroborated star Tom Cruise's earlier comments concerning Ethan Hunt's next adventure in Mission: Impossible 6, telling Variety: “We’re very happy to be developing this movie with Tom, there’s no question that Ethan Hunt deserves another film.” 

Elsewhere, WB's Vacation, which opened Wednesday and was helmed and written by Marvel's new Spider-Man writers Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley, brought in $21.2 million over a five-day stretch.

Check back in tomorrow for updated numbers.

With the IMF disbanded, and Ethan (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, the team now faces off against a network of highly skilled special agents, the Syndicate. These highly trained operatives are hellbent on creating a new world order through an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with disavowed British agent Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), who may or may not be a member of this rogue nation, as the group faces their most impossible mission yet.
