Box Office: ‘Mission: Impossible’ Tops 2nd Week, ‘Fantastic Four’ Bombs

NEW YORK (AP) — The latest attempt to kick-start a “Fantastic Four” franchise flopped at the box office with an estimated $26.2 million debut.

The performance of 20th Century Fox’s “Fantastic Four” was bad enough that last week’s leader, “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” again led the North American weekend box office with $29.4 million in its second week, according to studio estimates Sunday.

“Fantastic Four” was savaged by critics and dogged by reports of creative difficulties. Directed by Josh Trank, the Marvel Comics superhero team-up stars Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan.

Joel Edgerton’s thriller “The Gift” opened in third with $12 million. The Meryl Streep rocker “Ricki and the Flash” debuted with $7 million.
