The seventh film in the Tom Cruise-led franchise is projected to gross another $60 million more between Friday and Sunday, bringing its five-day total to between $85-$95 million in North America and another $160 million overseas for a global haul of around $250 million.
The last Mission Impossible movie, 2018’s Fallout, debuted with a franchise record $61 million.
