‘Mission: Impossible’ Bests Winnie-The-Pooh At Box Office

PUBG Mobile’s new Mission: Impossible content will self-destruct at the end of August

PUBG mobile for iOS and Android has joined hands with Mission: Impossible-Fallout for themed content from the movie itself. Overseas, it has amassed over $205 million.

It received mixed-to-positive reviews and finds Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore reminding the now grown-up Christopher (Ewan McGregor) about the meaning of life.

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

Air Tanker Deployed to Contain Devastating Mendocino Complex Wildfires
The two fires cover an area larger than the wildfire that damaged parts of Redding, California last week and continues to grow. More than 13,000 firefighters are battling blazes statewide with the help of crews from as far away as Florida.

"Christopher Robin" also represents an improvement from Disney's previous attempt at big-screen glory for the befuddled bear: "Winnie the Pooh" only took in $27 million over its entire run in 2011. Critics, ahem, "dumped" all over the Kate McKinnon/Mila Kunis flick. The film didn't score much better with ticket buyers, who gave the film a mediocre "B" on CinemaScore.

The star power of "Mamma Mia!" It was estimated to have an $8.8 million weekend, good enough for $79.9 million over three weeks. It also brought in $92 million from overseas after premiering in 36 worldwide markets. It has earned 91.33 million dollars in North America through Sunday. Previously, the 2000 sequel Mission: Impossible 2 held the record with $57.8 million.

The latest movie adaptation of a young adult book series was trashed by the critics and ignored by public.

US businesses cast wider net as jobless rate hits 3.9 pct
On the other hand, job growth for June and May have been revised up by 59,000 (to 268,000 and 248,000 respectively). Since the beginning of this year, the US has seen multiple economic milestones in addition to 1.5 million new jobs.

While many believe that the censors are behind Christoper Robin's banning, other industry professionals claim that it more to do with the size and scope of the film and the massive number of studio tentpole pictures flooding the market.

Next weekend sees the arrival of Spike Lee's acclaimed BlacKKKlansman, The Meg and something called Slender Man.
