Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation takes in $56 million!

As I said before, I went to Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation on the weekend. It won the box office with a haul of $56 million which, according to Forbes, beat the tracking and was the third-best open of Tom Cruise’s career

It’s yet another strong showing for the franchise that I have jokingly referred to in the past as Mission: Ridiculous because of the multitude of ridiculous stunts and action scenes in it.

As an aside, it’s been a great year so far for espionage fans at the movies, with The Man from U.N.C.L.E. coming soon and James Bond in Spectre later on this year.
