But obviously, the folks behind PUBG Mobile weren't going to let the hype go down the drain over time, therefore they have partnered up with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media to bring all-new content from the movie Mission: Impossible Fallout to the world famous Battle Royale title PUBG Mobile. The movie, which carries a US$75 million production budget, has garnered mixed reviews.
Tom Cruise is still succeeding with his Mission Impossible franchise, as the series earned $76 million from 56 markets for an overseas total of approximately $205 million this weekend. Marc Forster directed "Christopher Robin" from a screenplay by Alex Ross Perry and Allison Schroeder. China, which restricts the number of USA movies that play in its theaters, declined to give the film a release date. Maybe regulators thought the movie was too twee?
Disney was never intending "Robin" to make a huge dent in the box office, with its more dramatic tone it can be compared to its 2016 August release, "Pete's Dragon".
Disney's latest film Christopher Robin is banned in China as the country continues to ban images of Winnie the Pooh. The next closest studio is Universal, with 14 percent.
Victor of the best first feature award at the Berlin Film Festival, Carla Simón's semi-autobiographical Summer 1993, the tale of an orphaned six-year-old girl who is sent to live with her aunt and uncle, generated $64,000 on 14 screens and $137,000 including festival screenings for Palace.
Falling short of expectations, Disney's fantasy comedy film "Christopher Robin" opened in second place with an estimated 25 million dollars. Its take was $8.8 million in its third week out.
Newcomer "The Darkest Minds" earned $5.7 million when it launched on 3,127 screens.
The final wide release, Dinesh D'Souza's "Death of a Nation", made $2.3 million on 1,032 screens.
