After a couple of weeks of chopping and changing, Traninwreck has settled in at top spot. Earning $3.1 million this past week Amy Schumer and Paul Fieg have overcome superheroes and Tom Cruises as it rolls toward comedy of the year status.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation has dropped to second spot after a short spell at number 1 last week with $2.6 million. The fifth entry into the action franchise currently sits at a worldwide gross of $267 million which means it has a long ways to go to reach the highest ranked of its predecessors: Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol (2011) which finished up on $694 million.
Now despite abysmal reviews and no Marvel Studio influence, Fantastic Four has managed to crack $2 million. However it didn’t hit number 1 here or domestically, making a mere $25 million in its opening weekend in the states. If it’s initial impressions are anything to go by, things are only going to get worse.
Moving on to a couple of nice surprises, Australian film Last Cab to Darwin starring Micheal Caton has debuted at number 4, contending with F4. It made $1.1 million while the manga Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ rounds out the top 5 making over $800,000.
