'Mission: Impossible' bests Winnie-the-Pooh

'Mission: Impossible' bests Winnie-the-Pooh

The "Mission: Impossible" series is known for its death-defying stunts, and Cruise is known for executing them on his own without a stunt person, including a skydive at 25,000 feet with a broken ankle in the latest movie.

"Christopher Robin" received a positive review with a strong "A" rating from moviegoers on CinemaScore.

"It's one of our smaller films and it's really focused on character and emotion", said Taff.

"Christopher Robin" (Disney) was second.

Blame the memes. For several months now, Chinese authorities have been trying to ban images of Winnie the Pooh after several bloggers compared Chinese leader Xi Jinping to the bear.

Not all the news was great.

Tom Cruise easily conquered Winnie the Pooh at the domestic box office.

In third was another new release, Lionsgate's "The Spy Who Dumped Me", at $12.4 million. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

Ewan McGregor will be joined by Hayley Atwell and Peter Capaldi for the European premiere of Christopher Robin today. "Hotel Transylvania 3", $8.8 million ($18 million international). 7.
