The possibilities were endless during Mission Impossible: Fallout, which continued to rise at the domestic box office this weekend. Disney’s Christopher Robin found a family-friendly location while helping us all find the adventurous child within. On his own odd adventure, The Spy Who Dumped Me, ironically, was well-received by audiences looking for a comedic diversion. Diverting to the tune constantly within her heart, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! was once again going the musical distance as The Equalizer 2 did his darndest to level out our movie choices.
The impossible mission this weekend involved enticing vacationers off the beaches and in front of the big screen, where they tangled with Tom, got cozy with Christopher and company, discovered a fun dumping ground for comedy and gave witness to Washington as we continued to find a musical mamma most appealing.
Which of our appealing tales made the most music for you this weekend?

Will family man Christopher Robin and crew find the most room in the hearts of moviegoers this weekend? Might The Spy Who Dumped Me, who couldn’t care less about families, be throwing those values away in favor of comedy and conspiracies? Then there’s The Darkest Minds, also decidedly anti-family, who refuse to lighten up despite it being the lightest time of year.
Perhaps champion Mission Impossible: Fallout will rise one again among the eclectic competition and discover the greatest outcome this weekend. Of course, Equalizer 2 plans on remaining on action-adventure duty for the foreseeable future. Will his antics stand out among so many summer heroes?
Does Mamma Mia! Here We Go! have what it takes to take their act to even more audiences (who prefer music to hero-filled missions?) Will Teen Titans GO! to the Movies be going to even greater places this summer?
Of course, those looking for colorful characters can always find a place at Hotel Transylvania 3: (whose) Summer Vacation has been pretty darn successful so far.
Is there a better way for movie lovers to spend at least part of their summer vacation than at their neighborhood movie theater?
