Box Office: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE succeeds with $56m opening weekend

Any doubt that Tom Cruise was back and bigger than ever was dashed this weekend as the actor once again took on the role of Ethan Hunt for Paramount Pictures’ spy action-thriller Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, co-starring Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson and Alec Baldwin. It opened in 3,956 theaters to gross $20.3 million on Friday (including $4 million from Thursday previews), and its solid reviews and word-of-mouth helped the movie sustain business over the weekend for an estimated $56 million opening weekend.
