Teen Titans GO! is a bust as Mission: Impossible - Fallout rakes it in


Box office round up

DC just can't find something that works. While its live-action films have brought in money they've also sucked, and now their animated efforts are sucking and underperforming. The god-awful Teen Titans Go! to the Movies couldn't get anyone to go to the movies as it pulled in a paltry $10.5 million when expectations had it hitting the mid-teens. The animated feature had a small budget of $10 million so it shouldn't be too damaging, but that can't make DC happy.

Paramount is, though. Mission: Impossible - Fallout is being heralded as not only the best film in the franchise but a landmark in action cinema. It also had the best opening weekend in franchise history and is on track to hold the best box office. As the final true blockbuster of the summer season -- drenched in good reviews and word of mouth -- the movie should have some stellar legs as it won't get much competition for a while. 

And with that, the blockbuster season comes to an end. Sure, August always has one or two highlights as smaller films get dumped to grab onto the waning days of the season, but we're about to hit the doldrums until awards season starts rolling in and the holiday blockbusters land. With that being said, what did you think of the summer's releases? I think this might have been one of the best cinematic summers we've had in a long time. There was just so much good stuff landing week after week and only a few of the major releases sucked. Yes, it was jam-packed with sequels and franchises, but at least most of them were good.

2. Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! - $15,000,000

9. Skyscraper - $5,400,000
