The sixth part of the spy thriller series took $61.2 million on its opening weekend, setting a new record for the franchise in which Cruise plays secret agent Ethan Hunt.
As of Aug. 1, 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' had reached $83.9 million in domestic box office and $200 million worldwide.
But it is already in Cruise's top 20 domestic box-office performances of his career, after just a week in theaters.
It has buried 'The Mummy,' which grossed $80.2 million in 2017, and outgunned 'Jack Reacher,' which made $80.1 million in 2012. It has also surpassed older Cruise movies such as 'Cocktail,' which took $78.2 million in 1988, and 'Days of Thunder,' which raced to $82.7 million in 1990.
'Mission: Impossible' movies comprise four of the top five box-office hits for Cruise. But the movie star's No. 1 title at the domestic box office remains 'War of the Worlds,' which holds the top slot with $234.3 million in 2005.
'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' also still has a way to go before it passes series-record-holders 'Mission: Impossible II,' which took $215.4 million domestically in 2000, and 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol,' which set the series' worldwide record with $694.7 million at the box office in 2011.
The coming weeks will reveal if Cruise's latest 'Mission' will see it join its previous instalments near the top of the chart.

The filmmaker, who recently helmed Incredibles 2, gave an update on the project which he’s been trying to get into production since 2007. Now he’s looking at developing the project as a film and a TV series because there’s so much story to tell.
While talking about 1906 on the Variety podcast Playback, Bird explains his big ideas for the project, saying:
“It wants to be a longer story. It’s a really fascinating moment in history. Prior to the earthquake, San Francisco is this really happening city that’s somewhere between the Old West and the 20th Century.
"This time, they have no choice but to accept. Check out the official poster for #MissionImpossible Fallout, starring @TomCruise. Trailer in 2 days."
As for the poster, it's a slightly less stylish one than we were treated to previously. Instead, this one focuses on cramming all of the major characters from the Mission: Impossible
While talking with Fandango to discuss Incredibles 2 he was asked about the possibility of taking on a Star Wars film project, and this is what he had to say on the matter:
“I’ve known Kathy Kennedy a long time. And I’ve known George [Lucas] quite a while too. And certainly, that’s a very fun universe and if I could think of something that would be perfect for that I would give Kathy a call,
The new Incredibles 2 poster features all of the family's super suits in a laundry basket. We know that the sequel is going to pick up directly after the events of the first movie, but the dynamic in this installment is going to change dramatically. This time around, Bob, aka Mr. Incredible, is going to
The new Mission: Impossible 6 photo looks great, in stark black and white, with Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt out in front and Simon Pegg's loyal Benji Dunn behind him. The photo doesn't really tell us anything about the movie, but it does serve as a reminder that we're in for another (hopefully) excellent spy adventure next year. With Spectre having disappointed in 2015, Mission: Impossible really has become the premiere spy franchise in Hollywood at the moment.
"Everyone's favorite family of superheroes is back in Incredibles 2 but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life.
Tom Cruise was injured yesterday when a stunt he was filming for Mission: Impossible 6 went wrong. Footage of the incident, obtained by TMZ, shows the 55 year old actor rigged up for a scene in which he jumps from one building to the roof of another. Too low down as he reaches the second building, he hits the side of it, taking the impact against his chest and legs.
The severity of Cruise's injuries is not yet known. Though clearly in pain and limping hard, he was able to move back across the space to the platform on the first building, where he received assistance.
Cruise is unusual in doing almost all his own stunts, something producers discourage because it can dramatically increase the insurance needed for a film - if a star is badly hurt, a whole project may need to be scrapped.
On Somewhere Between, Patton plays Laura Price, a local San Francisco TV news producer who is married to the California district attorney and mother to a young daughter, Serena, whose unexpected death turns Laura’s world upside down. In a twist of fate, Laura is presented with the chance days later to prevent her daughter’s murder a la Groundhog Day, teaming up with former cop-turned-private investigator, Nico (Devon Sawa), to find answers.
“I was lucky on this one. The script came to me and they said that they would like for me to play the role [of Laura] if I was interested. It moved my spirit and my soul and for me, these shows -- or any kind of project -- I really want to shoot something that I’d want to watch as well,” Patton tells Et exclusively. “It’s a role that will stretch you or challenge you or
Paula Patton was on Live With Kelly and Ryan on Friday, where she was to reminisce about on-screen kisses past, and had especially kind things to say about her lip-locking partner in 2011's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.
"It was great," the 41-year-old actress recalled. "I will tell you that the kiss from Tom Cruise was a surprise."

But what exactly would an Incredibles 2 entail? Plus, given how long it’s been since the first one (13 years), what would be the timeline? Would it take place in real time, kind of like how the Toy Story series did, or would

Writer and director Christopher McQuarrie posted Monaghan’s photo on his Instagram account confirming that Monaghan will be reprising her role in Mission: Impossible 6. I've actually wondered if we would ever see her again in the franchise, so it's good to know that her character will play a role in the next chapter of the franchise.
As of right now, we don't know what her involvement in the film will be or how big of a role she'll have. On top of Cruise,
