'Wonder Woman' stays strong at box office, leaving 'Mummy' in dust

19 Juin 2017

"Wonder Woman" lassoed the box office for a second straight weekend, burying Tom Cruise's "The Mummy" and belting another studio's bid to build a billion-dollar world of interlocking franchises.

The Tom Cruise-starrer opened to a withering 32.2 million United States dollars, but "Wonder Woman" continued to do well.

That was well behind the $57.2 million second weekend in theaters for "Wonder Woman, ' from Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros". The film will open in eight more territories over the next two weeks, including Egypt on June 21, and its final premiere will be held in Japan on July 28.

The underperformance of The Mummy domestically could have a ripple effect on the future of Universal's Dark Universe, a planned monster movie universe set to include famous creatures like the Bride of Frankenstein, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Phantom of the Opera.

"The Mummy" posted very strong openings of $52.2 million in China and $17.8 million in South Korea, both of which were records for films starring Mr. Cruise.

Wonder Woman's ongoing popularity among film fans eclipsed the big promotional push for Tom Cruise's The Mummy franchise reboot, which received less-than-favourable reviews in the run up to its release last week (ends09Jun17).

"The Dark Universe has to start somewhere", said Dergarabedian.

It Comes at Night, despite a D CinemaScore came in # 6. The three-day total should come in right at $50 million. Suicide Squad put up a $133.6 million opening weekend which represented 41.1% of its domestic total of $325.1 million ($745.6 million worldwide) from a $175 million budget.

It's on track to gross 141.8 million dollars from 63 overseas markets, lifting its anticipated global take to 174 million dollars, according to studio figures collected by comScore.

Baywatch brought in $4.6 million in its third weekend, down 48% from last frame.

The box-office reign of "Wonder Woman" is all but certain to end next weekend when Pixar's "Cars 3" opens. That is, much like It Comes at Night, a disappointing number as the film was expected to open in the mid-single digits but had its potential female-dominated audience sucked up by Wonder Woman.

"Confession of Murder", $2.8 million.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, summer's top-grossing movie to date, fell to fifth with $6.2 million ($366.4 million total).
