Paramount's action film Mission: Impossible - Fallout continued to lead North American box office with an estimated $ 35 millio for the second weekend in a row.

Starring Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, Mission: Impossible - Fallout is the sixth installment in the franchise. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the film also stars Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris, Michelle Monaghan and Alec Baldwin, all of whom reprise their roles from previous films. McQuarrie is the first director to helm two films in the franchise.

The film has brought in $ 124.5 million in North American theaters through Sunday, according to studio figures collected by comScore.

Falling short of expectations, Disney's fantasy comedy film Christopher Robin opened in second place with an estimated $ 25 million.

Directed by Marc Forster, the film is inspired by A. A. Milne and E. H. Shepard's book Winnie-the-Pooh. It's a live-action extension of the Disney franchise of the same name. The plot follows Christopher Robin as he has grown up and lost his sense of imagination, only to be reunited with his old stuffed bear friend, Winnie-the-Pooh.
