German Box Office: 'Mission: Impossible' Retains Top Spot
Amy Schumer's 'Trainwreck' is the best new entry as 'Fantastic Four' flops.
Tom Cruise continued his reign over the German box-office charts as Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation easily won its second weekend running, earning an additional $2.4 million (€2.2 million).
That brought take the Paramount title to a total take of around $6 million in the country — enough to easily beat out all contenders. Rogue Nation benefited from a break in the heat wave that sent German audiences out of theaters and into beer gardens in the past weeks.
Behind the latest Mission: Impossible was Universal's animated hit Minions, which earned another $2.1 million (€1.9 million) in its sixth frame. The Despicable Me prequel has made more than $55 million in Germany and is the most successful title released in the country so far this year.
Amy Schumer's Trainwreck earned a respectable $1.06 million (€960,000) in its debut weekend, good enough for the fourth spot behind Minions and holdover Pixels. The rom-com beat out Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and comic book reboot Fantastic Four, the latter underwhelming with a $577,000 (€520.000) debut weekend.
