Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” has crossed the $300 million milestone at the worldwide box office.

The fifth film in the Tom Cruise franchise has hit $118.5 million domestically, with an additional $184.6 million from overseas markets with first-place openings in Korea, the U.K., Mexico, Australia, Spain, Russia and Argentina and franchise-best numbers in India, Korea, the U.K., Mexico, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Russia. International territories still to open include France, Brazil, Italy and China, launching Sept. 8.

The worldwide total for all five “Mission:Impossible” films has topped $2.4 billion, led by $694 million for 2011’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.”

“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” launched powerfully with $65 million in 40 international markets in its opening weekend, outperforming “Ghost Protocol” by 49% in the same markets. South Korea led the way with $17.1 million — the studio’s second-biggest opening in that market after “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

It was the biggest opening for a Cruise film in 27 markets.

The film is presented by Paramount and David Ellison’s Skydance and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, based on the television series created by Bruce Geller. Producers are Tom Cruise, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.

    Now would be a timely point to research any impact China’s devaluation might have on receipts from that nation. I am sure since two China entities are involved in this venture, that weighs heavily on their profit concerns.
