Mission: Impossible – Fallout quite possibly is the best film of the entire series. That’s a crazy statement to say figuring it’s the sixth installment in the Tom Cruise-led franchise; but at least financially, it’s true. The Christopher McQuarrie written and directed film made it’s debut with $61.5 million domestically, the highest that any of the films has every premiered with. Internationally the movie is already sitting at $153 million and it hasn’t even hit China, which it will do at the end of August. I hope this means we’ll see another.
