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

Wonder Woman has easily buried The Mummy to land a second week atop the North American box office. According to Exhibitor Relations, Wonder Woman has collected $57 million in the second week, the film stands with total $205 million domestic box office collection.

From data compiled on Box Office Mojo, it is apparent at this point that Universal's planned Dark Universe of films, which includes The Mummy, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, Dracula and others, will not find the golden dollar nor the key to success that Marvel's Cinematic Universe has enjoyed. But the film did significantly better overseas, with a projected $141.8 million haul in 63 other territories for a total of $174 million worldwide. Cruise stars as Navy Seal Tyler Colt in the Mummy reboot, the first film in Universal Studios' Dark Universe movie series. The DC Comics Extended Universe ("Suicide Squad", "Wonder Woman") also doesn't do them. So far, "The Mummy" nabbed a B- on Cinema Score. The movie now has a 17 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the worst of Cruise's career behind Cocktail (five percent).

The film, directed by Alex Kurtzman, opened to a soft $32.2 million domestically over its opening weekend. 'It Comes at Night' scared up $6 million, which is $4 million below the pre-release estimates. A24's horror release will scare up $6 million from 2,533, which is fine for the low price tag, but below expectations. His contributions to film criticism can be found in Magill's Cinema Annual, the International Dictionary of Films and Filmmakers, and the St. James Film Directors Encyclopedia (on which he collaborated with editor Andrew Sarris). There have only been 46 movies to open with $100 million or more in their opening weekend in the last 15 years, and only five of those movies dropped 45 percent or less.




Though projections have the movie, budgeted at $125 million, only making $35 million domestically over opening weekend, it could be saved internationally, as projections have the movie taking between $125 million and $135 million globally. Overseas, the Patty Jenkins-directed feature fell 54% (67% in China), pulling in $58.1 million, and bringing its current worldwide sum to over $435.2 million.

And at No. 3 is "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie", bringing in an estimated $12 million in its second week out.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" added $7.49 million in its third week.
