mission impossible rogue nation1 Box office report: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation wins with $56 million

(Christian Black)

After five movies, Mission: Impossible is still box office gold. Rogue Nation debuted to a solid $56 million this weekend, exceeding expectations and outstripping everything else in theaters.

Initial studio estimates had Rogue Nation debuting around $40 million for the weekend, but it was clear that Rogue Nation was destined for bigger things when it opened to $20.4 million on Friday — the best single-day opening in M:I history.

It’s difficult to compare Mission: Impossible debuts, mainly because each one opened in such varied circumstances. (The first two opened the Wednesday before Memorial Day, for example, and 2011’s Ghost Protocol rolled out in 425 preview theaters before going wide Christmas weekend.) But comparing traditional three-day weekend numbers, Rogue Nation’s $56 million makes it the second-biggestMission: Impossible opening of all time, falling just shy of Mission: Impossible II’s $57.8 million. (Of course, adjusted for inflation, Rogue Nation ends up in fourth place.)

Rogue Nation marks Tom Cruise’s third biggest domestic opening of all time, behind War of the Worlds ($64.9 million) and Mission: Impossible II. This is also the biggest opening for Cruise and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie, as Valkyrieopened to $21 million in 2008 and Jack Reacheropened to $15 million in 2012. (McQuarrie also wrote the script for Edge of Tomorrow, which debuted to $28.7 million in 2014.)

Meanwhile, Vacation opened with an estimated $14.9 million for the weekend and a five-day total of $21.2 million. That’s well under initial predictions, which expected the National Lampoon sequel to reach $30 million over five days, but it was still enough to snag second place.

After topping the box office two weeks in a row, Ant-Man slid to third place, falling 49 percent to $12.6 million. Minions also spent its fourth weekend in the top five, dropping 47 percent to an estimated $12.2 million. (Minions also crossed $850 million at the global box office this weekend.) And after its lackluster debut last weekend, Pixels fell to $10.4 million — a drop of about 57 percent.

Here are this weekend’s top five at the box office:

1. Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation — $56 million
2. Vacation — $14.9 million
3. Ant-Man — $12.6 million
4. Minions — $12.2 million
5. Pixels — $10.4 million

Pregnant Kim Kardashian 1 Lightening the load! Pregnant Kim Kardashian takes a breather from carrying North as she steps out in sensible flats

Looking swell: Kim Kardashian was spotted out in Los Angeles on Sunday carrying her toddler daughter North West as she took her to dance class

She’s five months into her second pregnancy and bumping along nicely.
But on Sunday, the perennially glamorous Kim Kardashian did the unthinkable and put comfort first – wearing a pair of sensible flats during an outing with her toddler daughter North West.
The 34-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashian star looked fabulous in a fitted beige maternity dress, which showed off her growing bump.

She was seen carrying two-year-old Nori to dance class in Los Angeles, but at one point had to put her down, looking a little out of puff.
Of course Kim has previously struggled with her feet swelling during her pregnancies – so the flats seemed like a good option for the on-the-go mom.
On Friday, Kim shared heart-warming snaps of little Nori playing football, declaring she was ‘officially a soccer mom’.

‘Last pic of my baller baby! She’s doing so good I’m just so proud! (sic),’ she captioned another photograph.
Meanwhile, a source previously claimed that the television personality – who is expecting a baby boy with husband Kanye West in December – has hired her daughter a personal trainer.
An insider told Radar: ‘She wants her to be a perfect physical specimen, and she thinks it’s perfectly normal to want to get North in shape at such an early age.

Full of energy: Little North goes to regular weekly dance classes
‘She has one of her guys work out with North at the end of her session, once or twice a week. They teach her fun stuff like stretches and other basic aerobics, nothing strenuous.’
On Saturday, Kim took to Instagram to post pictures to show how she does her make-up – which will be featured on her upcoming blog.
‘#TricksOfTheTrade Shot an amazing make up tutorial today with none other than my boo thang make up King @makeupbymario for KimKardashianWest.com #Contour #Lips #BlueSmokeyEye #DarkLip,’ the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wrote along with a four-way collage.

The reality star accessorized the dress with, of course, some angel wings as well as a white Saint Laurent Sac de Jour handbag.
Cheating on the all-white theme slightly, the model added not one, but two, Fendi mini Karlito bag charms – furry renditions of designer Karl Largerfeld – which retail at over $1,100 a piece.

Her sister Kylie meanwhile, showed off her more edgy style wearing a pair of tight white dressed and ripped jeans with a sheer striped white top tucked into her waistband which showed off her colour coordinated bra.
Winged like her sister, the 17-year-old accessorized her look with a gold diamond encrusted watch, a white Moschino bag and a pair of silver strappy heels.
The star also was back to wearing her diamond ring on her wedding finger despite recently denying she has plans to wed beau Tyga anytime soon.
Kylie posted a picture of her sister and herself making a Jenner sandwich out of her friend at the fun event.
The soon-to-be birthday girl captioned the snap: ‘You’re my darling angel babyyyyy.’
Kendall meanwhile posted a picture of herself driving to the event in a fantastic looking vintage car from 1965.
It had been a big day for Kendall, who had spent most of it on the beach larking around with pals on a dune buggy.
The next party that these sisters get dressed up for is going to be a very big one – Kylie’s 18th birthday.
The star is going to mark the milestone in Canada where she will be able to do one thing that she can’t in the US – drink legally.
The star’s birthday is on August 10 but her party will be on the 16th at the Beachclub in Montreal, a party island complete with a beach and a pool.

zoolander 2 Zoolander 2 (2016) Movie Trailer

It’s here. It’s happening. Fifteen years later, it’s still really, really, ridiculously good-looking.

It’s the first teaser for Zoolander 2, the long-awaited sequel to the 2001 original comedy starring Ben Stiller as male model-turned-assassin Derek Zoolander. The follow-up is set more than a decade after the events of the first film, and it’ll feature a slew of original stars—including Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, and Will Ferrell — as well as new cast members Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, and Cyrus Arnold (as Derek’s son). Several cameos have also been announced, includingWillie Nelson and Justin Bieber (this is also the only time you will ever hear those two names in the same sentence).

The Paramount Pictures teaser, which was briefly posted on YouTube on Friday night before being pulled, takes a brief trip through the genesis of human life, arriving in the brain of Derek Zoolander. The journey includes a few hints for die-hard fans of the original — the dictionary definition for Eugoogly, mermen, a “no left turn” sign, and orange mocha frappuccinos for days.

Zoolander 2 struts into theaters in February 2016.
