Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One nears $500 mn mark at the global box office, Oppenheimer edges past

Aug 07, 2023 07:02 PM IST

While Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One released a week prior to Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, the latter has already edged past.

Greta Gerwig's Barbie isn't the only film breaking records at the global box office. The Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling-starrer has made over $1 billion at the global box office, allowing Greta to become the first woman director to achieve that feat. Now, as per reports in Collider and CNN, Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One is nearing the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office, whereas Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer has already surpassed it.

Dead Reckoning affected by Barbenheimer?

Tom Cruise's latest instalment in the Mission: Impossible franchise seems to have been affected by the phenomenon of Barbenheimer, that followed nine days after its global release on July 12. But the spy thriller has held its own despite the two juggernauts that ate into its screen count.

As per the Collider report, Dead Reckoning Part One managed to add $6 million from the US to its total collection. It now stands at $151 million at the US box office and $342 million in the rest of the world, thus making its global box office equal to $493 million.

But the expectations from this film were far higher than the previous instalments of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Dead Reckoning Part One's budget stands at $300 million because of pandemic delays, as opposed to $180 million of Mission: Impossible - Fallout, the last instalment that released in 2018 and earned $791, the highest total for any film from the franchise.

Oppenheimer stands at half of Barbie

Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, on the other hand, has already crossed the coveted $50 million mark at the global box office, as per a CNN report. In the process, it has become only the fourth biopic to do so, after Bohemian Rhapsody, Passion of the Christ and American Sniper. It has also become the highest-grossing R-rated film of 2023.

It may have edged past Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One, despite releasing nine days after the Tom Cruise-starrer, but it seems to have lost the Barbenheimer war, at least globally. In India, however, it's the other way around. Oppenheimer has crossed 100 crore at the domestic box office, whereas Barbie is still a few crores away from hitting that mark.
