Fallout is now Tom Cruise's best opening movie so far, with its ticket sales falling just behind 2005's War Of The Worlds' $64.8 million. Not accounting for inflation, it's a best for the series which has grossed over $2.8 billion worldwide and one of Cruise's biggest too.

With positive word of mouth from both its glowing reviews (it's now at 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) and cheerful CinemaScore results (it got an A), Fallout is likely to have a good few weeks ahead of it.
