‘Mission: Impossible 5’ Tops Foreign Box Office, Nearing $400 Million Globally

“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” dominated the foreign box office, topping overseas charts for the third consecutive weekend.

The fifth film in Paramount’s spy franchise racked up a leading $46.1 million, pushing its global total to $373.4 million. It should pass $400 million next week.

The weekend’s two big domestic releases didn’t make many waves at foreign multiplexes. North American champ “Straight Outta Compton” doesn’t begin its foreign rollout until next week, only opening in Trinidad and other Caribbean Islands this weekend, where it made $15,000. Universal Pictures co-financed the picture with Legendary Entertainment. It looks at the early years of rap group N.W.A.

Warner Bros.’ “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” hoped for a warmer reception overseas after collapsing stateside. The big screen version of the 1960s television show racked up $12 million in 23 markets, including such significant territories as Australia, Russia, the United Kingdom, Spain and Germany.

Second place on the charts went to Chinese release “Go Away Mr. Tumor,” a drama about a cartoonist with a terminal illness. The film grossed a sizable $21.5 million.

South Korean thriller “Veteran” captured third place in the rankings, nabbing $18.2 million. The look at a driven detective’s efforts to ensnare a wealthy suspect has earned $44 million since debuting two weeks ago.

The top five was rounded out by Fox’s “Fantastic Four” and Universal and Illumination Entertainment’s “Minions,” earning $16.2 million and $15 million respectively. The comicbook adventure has racked up $102.1 million worldwide, while the “Despicable Me” spinoff has grossed $957.4 million globally.
