“Rogue Nation”

“Rogue Nation” posts second straight weekend win, bucking a trend of box office misfires led by former A-listers like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Adam Sandler and Mark Wahlberg

Who says A-list movie stars don’t matter at the box office anymore?

This weekend, Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” withstood a challenge from “Fantastic Four” and ruled the worldwide box office for the second straight week, taking in $29 million domestically and adding another $65.5 million overseas. That lifts its total grosses to $109 million domestic, $157 million overseas.

“Rogue Nation”s’ performance bucks a trend that has emerged in recent years as superhero sagas and high-concept franchises dominate the list of top-grossing films, while movies with well-known stars have struggled.

Cruise’s last three action vehicles — “Jack Reacher,” “Oblivion” and “Edge of Tomorrow” — all yielded disappointing box office returns. (His last bona fide hit was the last “Mission: Impossible” entry, 2011’s “Ghost Protocol.”)
