On Wednesday, the Tom Cruise-led Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One hit cinemas. The big-budget tentpole has made Rs 12.50 crores in India, reports industry tracker Sacnilk. The Christopher McQuarrie-directed movie will have the MI franchise’s biggest Indian opening. 2018’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout had a Rs 9.25 crore nett opening in India and ended up grossing about Rs 80 crore.
Dead Reckoning Part One is anticipated to earn between $85 and $95 million in North America and $160 million overseas in its first five days of release, according to Variety. A $250 million worldwide opening would arise from this. Starting on July 21, the movie will have competition from Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie.
The movie’s first day takings in India are comparable to those of Vin Diesel and Jason Momoa’s Fast X, which similarly made Rs 12.50 crores in its opening weekend. Although it has done better than other well-known Hollywood films this year, such John Wick: Chapter 4 (Rs 10 crore), Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (Rs 9 crore), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (Rs 7.30 crore), and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny Box (Rs 2 crores), it hasn’t quite reached the heights of those films.
