Tom Cruise

“Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” has launched powerfully with $65 million in 40 international markets.

The Paramount/Skydance release has outperformed 2011’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” by 49% in the same markets. South Korea led the way with $17.1 million — the studio’s second-biggest opening in that market after “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

It was the biggest opening for a Cruise film in 27 markets. With the $56 million U.S. opening, the worldwide total for “Rogue Nation” has already hit $121 million.

“Tom Cruise is arguably the biggest movie star in the world,” noted Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “The level of action in this film and the international locations just resonate on so many levels. And he’s tireless about marketing his films.”

“Rogue Nation” will launch in Germany and Japan next weekend and the red-hot Chinese market will see the release on Sept. 8.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Over the weekend, Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation opened to a better-than-expected $56 million in North America. The movie, fueled by males (62 percent) and older moviegoers, easily came in No. 1. More than 80 percent of ticket buyers were over the age of 25.

Rogue Nation almost boasted the best three-day weekend opening of any title in the franchise, not accounting for inflation. The Mission: Impossible movies have never opened to huge numbers, outside of the second film, which took in $70.8 million over the long Memorial Day weekend in 2000, including $57 million for the weekend itself. And Rogue Nation delivered Cruise his third-best domestic opening of all time after Mission: Impossible II and War of the Worlds ($64.9 million), not accounting for inflation.

The critically acclaimed film, buoyed by an A- CinemaScore, is the fifth installment and continues the goodwill that Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol generated. Written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Rogue Nation sees Ethan Hunt and his team attempting to prove the existence of (and then stop) the Syndicate, an international criminal consortium. Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson also star.

“This weekend shows that Tom Cruise continues to be a popular star and that Mission continues to be one of the most popular franchises in the U.S. [and] globally,” said Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore.
