Box Office: ‘Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’ Wins, Conservative-Hating ‘Vacation’ Flops

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The stakes may be high for Ethan Hunt and his team in “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” but it was hardly impossible for the Tom Cruise pic to conquer the box office.

The fifth installment in the nearly 20-year-old film series has earned $56 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

It’s the second-highest opening for a “Mission” film since “Mission Impossible II” took in $57 million over Memorial Day weekend in 2000.

The Paramount and Skydance Productions film cost a reported $150 million to produce and should have no problem making up its budget, especially with overseas earnings.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros.’ “Vacation” has gone off track. The poorly-reviewed, $30 million film earned $14.8 million over the weekend, and $21.2 million since opening Wednesday.
