Chinese Box Office The Mummy and Wonder Woman

Adjust Comment Print

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reboot of Universal's 'The Mummy, ' starring Tom Cruise, opened to a withering 32.2 million United States dollars at the US box-office, a dismal start for the first film of Universal's new Dark Universe of interconnected monster movies. How are we to come together and bring peace to the planet if we can't even agree on whether or not Tom Cruise rebooting Brendan Fraser is a good thing? Almost 18 years ago, that same film debuted at $43 million. Its worldwide figure now stands at $435 million.

IF ONLY Tom Cruise had a cape, cowl or shield. The film managed to do well at the box office despite the other releases at the box office.

While it didn't open as big as the first two movies in the DCEU, Wonder Woman may have enough staying power to out-gross its predecessors.

"Woman" has now accrued about $205 million domestically and another $230.2 from foreign markets.

Wonder Woman was produced under a $149 million budget, and it has become the first DCEU movie to be certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

With Disney's Cars 3 due for release on June 16, next weekend's box office is sure to look different, and there's no doubt that the fifth installment in the Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight will once again shake things up after its release on June 21.

"Wonder Woman" raked in another $57 million at the box office in its second week, proving this once dormant film project is making up for all those lost years. That includes knocking of the newcomer Mummy on the list by almost $25 million, which is impressive, to say the least.

"Wonder Woman" collected more than $58.5 million between Friday and Sunday, giving it a two-week total of $206.3 million, according to comScore. It's not unusual for big budget films to do two or three times more business elsewhere than domestically, but nearly five times better shows just how little interest U.S. audiences have in the Dark Universe.

That couldn't compete with "Wonder Woman" in its second weekend. But "It Comes at Night" also only cost $5 million to make. In total, the movie has grossed $174 million in its opening weekend. That was less than most analysts expected for the well-reviewed film, starring Joel Edgerton.
