Tom Cruise is an exceptional actor and is always top in the releases. What makes him a good actor is not his good looks and charming personality. Instead, his versatile movie roles compelled him to go unconventional.

One of his roles as Ethan Hunt in the Mission Impossible franchise is forever to be remembered. Recently, Cruise returned with his blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, which is now in theatres. The film is packed with twists and turns, making it worth watching after all but even with all these elements, it still couldn’t surpass the records of Oppenheimer.

Now, Tom Cruise seems to be struggling with his very own Mission: Impossible as his latest installment in the action franchise, Dead Reckoning, continues grinding at the box office. The film faces tough competition from the dual releases of Barbie and Oppenheimer, even though it was released 9 days before them.

July was the month of chaos and excitement with the release of big movies. While there was a massive craze of Oppenheimer and Barbie, the hopes were also high with Tom Cruise‘s return, but unfortunately, the wave of Oppenheimer crushed it. 

Mission: Impossible 7 was a smash hit at the box office, surpassing approximately $9.4 million in just one week. The film has also experienced remarkable success on a global scale, with an Associated Press report revealing that it has earned over $235 million within five days of its release, making it a blockbuster.


On the other hand, Oppenheimer, featuring Cillian Murphy as the father of the atomic bomb, has also stood to its ground surpassing $500 million in global earnings by August 5th. This is a remarkable achievement, especially considering it’s a three-hour-long film centered around a historical figure.

But now it’s bad news for M: I 7. Despite its franchise-record $235 million opening globally, Paramount/Skydance’s Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One still has a long way to go – at least ahead to match Oppenheimer‘s impressive performance.

As of August 3, the latest data indicates that Oppenheimer has amassed $199.9 million in the US box office and $278.9 million internationally after its second week of release.

Consequently, the movie’s current global total stands at $600 million, which means it’s well on making $1 billion soon. This figure has already exceeded the total earnings of films like Dunkirk ($527 million),  Tenet ($365.3 million), and Batman Begins ($373.7 million) throughout their entire run. Before we look at how it compares to Mission: Impossible 7, it’s worth noting Oppenheimer’s records are already set. 

US users can watch Oppenheimer online on streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime Video. Users can also rent or buy the movie on iTunes or Google Play.
