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

The $32.2 million take for The Mummy was well behind the $57 million that Wonder Woman grossed on its second weekend in the US.

Last weekend, Wonder Woman set a new box office record by taking in $103.2 million, the highest opening weekend ever for a female-directed movie.

The Gal Gadot superhero film, directed by Patty Jenkins, has grossed $205 million domestically after fourteen days. That's a slow start for the film meant to launch an extended universe of monster-related titles. It was torn apart by critics, with the movie sitting at a 12 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and attracted negative attention online from fans who saw it.

Universal's "The Mummy", meanwhile is counting on a strong overseas total to make up for less impressive domestic earnings.

While the film made more than $141 million in worldwide theaters, American audiences were less than enthusiastic, spending only $32 million. That's even better than the movie was expected to do in its second weekend, even with such positive reviews, press, and word of mouth. Taking more than $230 from the worldwide box office so far, Wonder Woman has a current global tally of more than $435 million. Whereas "Wonder Woman" feels like a long-desired movie event, nobody was asking for an update of "The Mummy" with Tom Cruise subbed in for Brendan Fraser. It'll be up to Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast) and Bride of Frankenstein to right the ship, with films starring Johnny Depp as The Invisible Man and Javier Bardem as Frankenstein's Monster also in the works. Fate of the Furious, the most recent installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, made nearly $225 million domestically but more than $1 billion internationally.




Universal distribution executives trumpeted the film's global performance while acknowledging the North American gross left something to be desired. A24's horror release will scare up $6 million from 2,533, which is fine for the low price tag, but below expectations.

It Comes at Night, despite a D CinemaScore came in # 6.

Everything, Everything (US$1.6 million).

The rest of the top 5 has Pirates of the Caribbean 5 at number 3 with $45 million, Baywatch at number 4 with $15 million and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie at number 5 with $14 million. Disney and Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" finished fifth with an estimated 6.2 million USA dollars in its sixth weekend.
