“Mission: Impossible – Fallout” took second place Friday. The film added $5.3 million to its haul.

New release “Slender Man” grabbed #3 with $4.9 million, while a gross of $3.6 million slotted “Christopher Robbin” in fourth place.

Credited with $3.6 million, the new “BlacKkKlansman” earned #5 at the Friday box office.
