Box-office top 20: 'Fallout' cruises past Winnie-the-Pooh

August 06, 2018 - 6:08 pm

NEW YORK (AP) — Winnie-the-Pooh and "Christopher Robin" couldn't catch up to Tom Cruise and "Mission: Impossible — Fallout" at the box office, as Cruise's sixth, stunt-filled "Mission: Impossible" movie topped the charts for the second week.

Paramount Pictures' "Fallout" brought in $35.3 million to bring its two-week total to $124.8 million, according to final figures Monday. That was enough to easily outpace Disney's "Christopher Robin," which debuted with $24.6 million in ticket sales. Made for an estimated $75 million, Marc Forster's live-action Winnie-the-Pooh revival stars Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Christopher Robin reunited with the beloved characters of the Hundred Acre Wood.

The R-rated action-comedy "The Spy Who Dumped Me," starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, debuted in third with $12.1 million for Lionsgate.
