Audiences turned out this weekend to see Tom Cruise in his sixth run as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible—Fallout, which easily took the No. 1 spot at the domestic box office, the AP reports. Studios on Sunday estimate that Fallout earned $61.5 million from 4,386 North American theaters. Not accounting for inflation, it's a best for the series which has grossed over $2.8 billion worldwide and one of Cruise's biggest too. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again placed second with $15 million, while The Equalizer 2 fell to third with $14 million and Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation took fourth with $12.3 million. The animated Teen Titans Go! To the Movies was the only film to open against Fallout. The Warner Bros. release earned $10.5 million and landed in fifth place.
