What was supposed to be a much tighter bout became an easy win for “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” taking the Number One spot in its second weekend with $35.3 million. That is where Disney’s newcomer “Christopher Robin” should have landed as well, but instead it fell about $10 million short with $24.5 million. Fellow newcomer “The Spy Who Dumped Me” landed at Number Three with $12.1 million, which was also a few million shy of what it was projected to make. “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” continues to beat “The Equalizer 2,” ever since losing to it in their opening weekend, with $9 million and $8.7 million respectively. “The Darkest Minds” opened to $5.8 million in its opening weekend, beating out “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies,” which took a massive five spot drop in its sophomore showing, even being beaten by fellow animated superhero film “Incredibles 2” which is in its 8th weekend. The documentary “Death Of A Nation” finished outside the Top Ten, at Number 13 with $2.3 million while foreign film “Along With The Gods: The Last 49 Days” opened further down the list at Number 21.

Not in the Top 25 was the new Chloe Grace Moretz starring film “The Miseducation of Cameron Post,” which took the per theater average with an average of $24,319 from two theaters, finishing at Number 38. Within the Top 25, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” was also the per average winner, with an average of $8,037 from 4,395 theaters. Jumping up two spots in its fourth weekend, “Eighth Grade” was the Top 25’s winner for increase in box office percentage, with an increase of +124.6%. “Unfriended: Dark Web” bombed this weekend with a fourteen spots and a decrease of -84.8%, the biggest drop of any of the Top 25. Finally falling off the list, in its 12th weekend, was “Deadpool 2,” with “Solo: A Star Wars Story” falling off as well, in its 11th weekend. “Uncle Drew,” “Tag,” and “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot” also fell off the list this week.

Next weekend will be another proposed big battle for the crown, with the Jaws knock-off “The Meg” opening wide, aiming for a $23.5 million first weekend. Were “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” to drop the same amount that it did this weekend in its third weekend, it would be looking at a close to $23.8 third weekend, enough to put it over “The Meg.” That means “Meg” will have to open very close to that number to even have a chance. “Christopher Robin” will be trying to keep a hold of the third place spot, but with the horror film “Slender Man” eyeing a $15.5 million opening weekend, that could put a strain on the live action Winnie The Pooh adventure. “Dog Days,” which opens on Wednesday and “BlacKkKlansman” will also be looking for spots on the Top 25. With a bomb this weekend and new horror film opening up next weekend, expect “Unfriended: Dark Web” to finish its steep descent. There’s only so long that “Avengers: Infinity War” can hang on as it approaches its home video release on August 14th and a digital release that has already come and gone. “Sicario: Day Of The Soldado” and “Ocean’s 8” are also barely holding onto the Top 25. And, keep an eye on “The First Purge” and “Blindspotting” as they had steep drops this weekend as well.
