'Christopher Robin' Delivers Lowest Disney Debut In Past 2 Years

'Christopher Robin' Delivers Lowest Disney Debut In Past 2 Years

The Tom Cruise starrer has now surpassed the lifetime numbers of The Conjuring 2 [62 crore] and would have its lifetime in 75-80 crore range.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout had its franchise-best debut last week, pulling in an estimated $61.5 million.

Disney's "Christopher Robin" came in a distant second place with around $US25 million.

Christopher Robin is a live action film starring Ewan McGregor as the leading role and tells the story of Robin reuniting with the honey-loving bear as an adult and rediscovering his playful imagination. The film was reportedly made on a $75 million production budget.

Universal's "Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again" landed in fourth with US$9 million for a domestic tally of US$91 million. Fallout co-stars Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Angela Bassett, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin. The film is out in theatres now.

Disney's latest assault on our collective heartstrings Christopher Robin opens in theaters this weekend, reacquainting audiences around the world with A.A. Milne and his beloved Hundred Acre Woods.

Describing it as "one of our smaller films", Cathleen Taff, head of distribution for Disney, confirmed that it had been denied a China release.

The business decrease was less than the 49% Mission: Impossible -Rogue Nation experienced in its second weekend three summers ago. The $34 million dollar film fared badly on the worldwide scene as well, taking in only $4.1 million in 37 markets, while reviews were also punishing with a 19% Rotten Tomatoes rating.

Disney has a history with the A A Milne characters dating back to 1966 when the studio released the animated short Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree, featuring the character Christopher Robin.

Fox's young-adult dystopian thriller "The Darkest Minds" (19 per cent "fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes) opened with $5.7 million on 3,127 screens.
