BOX OFFICE: “Mission: Impossible — Fallout” sets franchise record, “Mamma” edges “Equalizer” this time, “Titans” tank


A big Thursday and huge Friday have set “Mission: Impossible — Fallout” on a path to clear $60 million on its opening weekend, perhaps going as high as $63 million. is reporting that the $6 million Thursday night opening added another $22-25 Friday, with Saturday pre-sales pointing to the biggest  opening weekend ever for the Tom Cruise big screen version of the 60s-70s TV series.

The brand is a big draw and reviews have been stellar. Why not?

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again” nipped past last weekend’s surprise winner, “Equalizer 2” during the week and will repeat that this weekend, making over $15 to Denzel’s second weekend take of $13.

That should allow both Denzel’s revenge times two thriller and the ABBA’s B-sides sequel to better “Teen Titans Go! To the Movies” ($10-11), pushing it to fourth place. Earlier projections gave “Titans” a shot of reaching $15-17. Considering the quick and dirty Warner Animation comedy only cost $10 (and looks it), any take above $10 you can call a win for the TV toon turned into a big screen draw.

Not many are showing up for something that has all the ambition of a made-for-TV Cartoon Network movie. Why pay for Cartoon Network quality animation best experienced on TV?
