Wonder Woman Crushes The Mummy At The Box Office

But before we get to the undead, "Wonder Woman" easily dominated the domestic box office yet again this week, bringing in an estimated $57 million in its second weekend out. Universal's "The Mummy" looked it age, selling a relatively feeble $32.2 million in tickets in its debut weekend.

Last weekend, Wonder Woman crushed the $65 million estimate that box office analysts had forecast and launched with a massive $103 million. 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.

The strong second-weekend turn-out helps to boost the domestic takings of the Patty Jenkins movie to $205 million (£161 million) to date.

The Mummy a B- CinemaScore from audiences.

Alex Kurtzman directed "The Mummy", a revival of the franchise spawned by Universal's 1932 original and re-popularized by Stephen Sommers' 1999 fright-fest starring Brendan Fraser, and the three other Mummy films that followed.

Critics weren't kind to Cruise's The Mummy, with the film's Rotten Tomatoes rating now standing at a disastrous 17% fresh.

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

Fresh questions for Sessions _ and he'll answer in public
He's " just having a little fun ", this person said of Trump's tape antics. But even he appears to be hinting that it's all a charade.

With this report, it is easy to say that "Wonder Woman" is a major and biggest hit this summer. Even though the movie is winding down now that is has been in release for six weeks, it still posts impressive returns at the box office and fans really seem to enjoy the Marvel film.

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", $4.6 million ($10.7 million international).

Everything, Everything (US$1.6 million).

In limited release, "My Cousin Rachel" is tracking to break $1 million from 523 locations.

Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 followed with $6.2-M domestically for a worldwide haul of $833.2 to date.

While "Batman Begins" and the first "Spider-Man" movie were both meant to kick off a series of films, in both cases the movies wait until they've told an intriguing story before setting up a sequel.
