'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' Bows to Solid $20.3 Million on FridayAugust 01, 2015 04:20 AM

by BoxOffice Staff

Paramount reports that Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation earned $20.3 million on opening day Friday, including Thursday night's $4 million start. Yesterday's bow was almost 4 percent stronger than 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes ($19.5 million), which also opened in early August. Rogue's first day take is also 22 percent higher than Mission: Impossible III's $16.6 million bow in May 2006, which adjusts to a comparable $20.6 million using 2015 ticket prices. Early word of mouth for the fifth installment in the series is excellent as the pic boasts an "A-" CinemaScore and a 93 percent Flixster user score, one of the three best day-after-release scores among all 2015 releases -- and that's on top of its excellent 93 percent rating from critics. Beyond the film's strong reviews, goodwill from the previous blockbuster installment (Ghost Protocol) is carrying over here. We fully expect long legs throughout the remainder of summer. BoxOffice is projecting an opening weekend around $55 million for the Tom Cruise vehicle.

In second place, the Vacation revamp added $4.5 million on Friday, giving it a domestic total of $10.82 million through three days of play. By comparison, that's 46 percent lower than We're the Millers at the same point. Unfortunately, the comedy sequel isn't finding much traction following negative reviews (28 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and poor word of mouth (64 percent on Flixster; "B" CinemaScore). BoxOffice is projecting a three-day weekend of $13.9 million for Vacation, which would give it a disappointing overall five-day start of $20.2 million.

Meanwhile, Ant-Man claimed third place yesterday with $3.625 million (off 50 percent from last Friday). That gives Marvel's 12th chapter $123.15 million through 15 days of release. BoxOffice projects a $12.4 million third frame.

Just behind in fourth place, Minions declined 47 percent from last Friday to $3.6 million yesterday. The prequel has now banked $278.8 million domestically. Look for a weekend around $12 million, according to Universal.

Filling out the top five, Pixels sank 65 percent from its opening day last week to $3.15 million yesterday. With an underwhelming eight-day domestic tally of $38.36 million, the Adam Sandler pic is heading toward a sophomore frame around $10.3 million.
