‘Mission: Impossible 5’ Tops ‘Fantastic Four’ at Foreign Box Office

“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” the IMF’s latest globe-trotting adventure, continued to resonate with foreign crowds, drawing a leading $65.5 million at the overseas box office.

That easily topped “Fantastic Four,” which found a little relief abroad after bombing at the domestic box office. The Fox release cost $120 million to produce and millions more to market. It faces an uphill climb to profitability after pulling in $34.1 million across 43 markets, which just outpaced the $26.2 million the superhero reboot made stateside.

Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” has now earned $265.3 million globally. It enjoyed a number of healthy debuts, including a first place launch in India, where it scored the fourth-biggest Hollywood opening ever with $6.5 million, and a $6.3 million start in Japan. Next week the film opens in France and Brazil, with a China landing scheduled for Sept. 8.

Universal and Illumination Entertainment’s “Minions” is barreling toward the $1 billion mark after earning $18.2 million overseas. That was good enough for a third place finish and puts the film’s worldwide total at $912.5 million. It is now the fifth-highest-grossing animated film of all time internationally and the highest-grossing Illumination Entertainment film ever in foreign markets.

Fourth and fifth place on the charts went to Chinese fantasy “Monster Hunt” and the crime flick “Veteran,” with $16.4 million and $15.2 million, respectively. “Monster Hunt” is the highest-grossing Chinese film in history, having made $312 million.
