Box Office Breakdown: 8/7-8/9


Welcome to BOX OFFICE BREAKDOWN, where we discuss this weekends box office results.  The TOP 3 films for the weekend of August 7-9 were Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Fantastic Four, and The Gift.

Let's take a look at how the Top 3 did this weekend...


During its second week in theaters, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation managed to take the top spot yet again, bringing another $28.5 million for an overall domestic total of $107.8 million and a worldwide total of $264.5 million.  And with numbers like this we will most likely see a sixth installment of this franchise soon.


Amidst a slew of extremely negative reviews, Fox's newest Marvel film, Fantastic Four, had a very disappointing opening weekend, bringing in only $25.7 million domestically and $59.8 million worldwide.  It is very unclear if this film will be able to make a profit or not, but the outlook is not good. However, Fox has issued a statement saying that they are still committed to this franchise, so we will have to wait and see if a sequel is actually made.


The Gift, which opened this week in only 1,648 theaters, was able to rake in $11.9 million on only a $5 million production budget.  This is a very good start for first-time director and star of the film, Joel Edgerton and Blumhouse productions.

Here's a quick rundown of the top 10 films this weekend:

#1 - Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation - $28,502,372

#2 - Fantastic Four - $25,685,737

#3 - The Gift - $11,854,273

#4 - Vacation - $8,955,246

#5 - Ant-Man - $7,911,445

#6 - Minions - $7,449,020

#7 - Ricki and the Flash - $6,610,961

#8 - Trainwreck - $6,147,150
