China has banned the new Disney flick "Christopher Robin" - apparently because President Xi Jinping is furious at the string of memes comparing him to Winnie the Pooh.

The action adventure co-starring Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson and Michelle Monaghan fetched an estimated $US35 million in the United States, easily beating Disney's Christopher Robin, which opened with $US25 million.

Starring Tom Cruise, "Fallout" (Paramount) has now taken in $124.5 million in the United States and Canada and about $330 million worldwide, according to comScore, which compiles box-office data. Reports suggest it has made over $430 million in revenue since its release. With his latest release, Mission: Impossible- Fallout, Cruise continued his daredevilry jumping off a building, piloting a helicopter and even performing a HALO jump.

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

Trump Administration Threatens Even Higher Tariffs On China
Commerce Department finds that they pose a threat to national security. "U.S. pressure and blackmail won't have an effect". Because China imports far less from the US than the USA imports from China, it can't keep up tit-for-tat tariffs.

With a more recognisable IP and Ewan McGregor as its main star (no disrespect, Pooh Bear), "Robin" performed better its opening weekend than the $US21.5 million take that "Dragon" had. McQuarrie is the first director to helm two films in the franchise. The documentary, now has a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, is the lowest wide release to date for the right-wing conservative filmmaker.

A pair of Sony (NYSE:SNE) films, The Equalizer 2 and Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, placed #5 and 6, respectively, with $8.8-M and $8.2-M domestically. The stoner comedy, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, stars Mia Mitchell, Camila Morrone and "Saturday Night Live's" Kyle Mooney. In three weeks, the Denzel Washington-led sequel has earned $79 million.
