Debuting at number two was Paramount’s “Mission Impossible — Rogue Nation,” with $6.1 million, including Aug. 7 sneaks, from 346 screens.

Entering the chart at number three was “Boruto – Naruto the Movie,” the latest feature installment in the “Naruto” animated franchise about the adventures of the title ninja. Opening on 268 screens, with Toho distributing, the film scored $3.3 million.
