'Wonder Woman' buries 'The Mummy' at box office

Share

The DCEU movie witnessed a $100 million debut at the domestic box office last week.

That couldn't compete with "Wonder Woman" in its second weekend.

"Wonder Woman" convincingly wins a second straight USA weekend box office race. Slipping only 45%, the film added another $57.1 million to the bank. There are also rumors that Angelina Jolie will play the Bride of Frankenstein, and Alex Kurtzman has a wishlist that includes Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence.

It's the lowest North American opening in The Mummy series to date - 1999's The Mummy, 2001's The Mummy Returns, 2002's The Scorpion King, and 2008's The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, all pulled in millions more upon their releases. And domestically, "Wonder Woman" ($202 million) is the year's fifth-biggest film - with "Fate of the Furious" ($224.5 million) and "Logan" ($226.2 million) next in its sights.

His star power is strong overseas where audiences care less about Tom's public relations disasters including the famous Oprah Winfrey incident where he jumped on her couch while declaring his love for Katie Holmes.

Have some fun, see a movie this weekend. Ireland's box office figures come in on Tuesday, but it's likely it'll be the same tale of woe for the Dark Universe debut. The cume marked Cruise's biggest worldwide opening weekend ever since "War of the Worlds", which opened to $167.4 million back in 2005. At least for a couple more movies. Combined with the domestic total, that's an estimated worldwide sum of $174 million. Its cumulative stands on $70.2 million after 10 days. Down 51%, the sequel has pocketed $136 million domestically and may finish with $150 million in domestic ticket sales. Like "The Mummy", it's been saved by foreign ticket sales.

"Alien: Covenant", $1.8 million ($1.6 million international). It's now passed a total gross of more than $430 million.

Playing on 2,533 screens, the weekend's second wide release opened a #6. The tiny $5 million picture may have earned critical praise, but with bad word-of-mouth, it's unlikely to do much more business.

Rotten Tomatoes was blamed for "Baywatch's" Memorial Day weekend flop, but it wasn't enough to save two new wide releases this weekend in A24's "It Comes At Night" and Bleecker Street's "Megan Leavey".
