“Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” grossed $8.3 million at the box office on Thursday, bringing the action sequel’s North American gross to $23.8 million after two days of release. exit.

The film, which shows Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt hurtling down cliffs, battling knife-wielding bad guys on trains and dodging pursuers while driving a Fiat through the streets of Rome, was incredibly expensive to produce. Shot during the pandemic (with all the shutdowns, delays and health protocols that were a staple of the COVID era), the film’s budget soared to $290 million. So, “Mission: Impossible” will have to generate a lot of loyalty to turn a profit, and it has to thrive at the global box office.

Right now, the movie is looking to make around $80 million for its first five days in theaters, which is slightly below expectations. Initially, tracking suggested the film would gross over $90 million in ticket sales. That said, “Mission: Impossible” movies tend to attract older audiences, who don’t always show up on opening weekend. This could give the film impressive staying power even if its debut is softer than expected.

Cruise’s previous Mission Impossible, 2018’s “Fallout,” raised $61 million in its debut, setting a franchise record. However, that film didn’t have a five-day launch, which makes comparisons difficult.

Christopher McQuarrie returned to direct “Dead Reckoning” after overseeing the previous two installments. This one finds Hunt and his crew battling a much scarier version of ChatGPT in an all-powerful artificial intelligence force known as “The Entity”. Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Esai Morales, Vanessa Kirby and Pom Klementieff round out the cast.
