'Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation' Glides Past $60M Mark after $6.79M Monday TakeAugust 04, 2015 12:56 PM

by Daniel Garris

Paramount's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation took in $6.79 million on Monday to lead the daily box office with ease for a fourth consecutive day. The well received fifth installment of the Tom Cruise led action franchise fell 56 percent from Sunday. Rogue Nation passed the $60 million mark yesterday and has grossed $62.31 million in four days. The film is performing towards the higher end of expectations thus far and will hope to hold up well going forward thanks in part to strong critical reviews and strong early word of mouth. Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation is currently running 21.5 percent ahead of the $51.27 million four-day start of 2006's Mission: Impossible III.

Universal's Minions placed in second with $2.00 million. The 3D computer animated prequel from Illumination Entertainment was down just 47 percent from Sunday and down a very solid 35 percent from last Monday. Wide releases in general (and especially family fare) received an extra boost on Monday from the Civic Holiday in Canada. Minions has grossed an impressive $289.58 million in 25 days. That places the film 4 percent behind the $301.65 million 25-day take of 2013's Despicable Me 2.

Ant-Man followed closely behind in third with $1.89 million. The Paul Rudd led 3D superhero film from Disney and Marvel declined 53 percent from Sunday and a respectable 43 percent from last Monday. Ant-Man has clearly taken a hit from the arrival of Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and will be facing further direct competition from Fox's Fantastic Four beginning on Friday. Ant-Man has grossed a solid $134.22 million in 18 days, which places it just 7 percent behind the $144.88 million 18-day take of 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger.

Warner's Vacation landed in fourth place with $1.84 million. The comedy franchise re-launch starring Ed Helms and Christina Applegate fell 58 percent from Sunday, which represented the day's largest daily percentage decline among wide releases. Vacation has grossed a softer than expected $22.85 million through six days of release. The film is currently running an underwhelming 19 percent behind the $28.32 million six-day start of last year's Let's Be Cops.

Pixels rounded out Monday's top five with $1.64 million. The Adam Sandler led 3D action comedy from Sony was down 48 percent from Sunday and down 43 percent from last Monday. Pixels continues to perform significantly below expectations with a lackluster eleven-day take of $47.36 million. That places the film a disappointing 42 percent behind the $82.14 million eleven-day haul of 2013's Grown Ups 2.

Universal's Trainwreck claimed sixth place with $1.33 million. The critically acclaimed Amy Schumer led comedy declined 52 percent from Sunday and 38 percent from last Monday. Trainwreck surpassed the $80 million mark yesterday and has grossed a healthy $80.95 million in 18 days. The film is currently running an impressive 35 percent ahead of the $60.11 million 18-day gross of 2009's Julie & Julia.
