“Fantastic Four” wasn’t too fantastic at the North American box office, with Tom Cruise keeping his grip on the theatrical top spot over the weekend, according to final figures released Monday.

Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” earned $28.5 million between Friday and Sunday to push the film over the $100 million mark in just two weeks of release, according to box-office tracker Rentrak.

“Fantastic Four” debuted in second place with $25.7 million, a disappointing second-place finish for the latest entry in the superhero genre.

The new suspense thriller “The Gift” opened in third place with $11.8 million, followed by the comedy “Vacation” with $8.9 million.

Another superhero film, “Ant-Man,” managed to stay in the top five by collecting $7.9 million, giving it a four-week take of $147.5 million.

Rounding out the top 10 films of the weekend were “Minions” ($7.4 million); “Ricki and the Flash” ($6.6 million); “Trainwreck” ($6.1 million); “Pixels” ($5.4 million); and “Southpaw” ($4.7 million).

“Minions” has earned $302.8 million domestically in its five weeks of release.
