Monday Morning Box Office Report: Wonder Woman Buries The Mummy

boxofficewonderwoman2

It was a familiar story at the box office over the weekend as The Mummy became the latest poorly reviewed blockbuster to end up a domestic disappointment. The movie got the Dark Universe off to a pretty slow start, opening in second place with just $32 million, less than even The Scorpion King spin-off made back in 2002. That being said, it did make $141 million overseas, which is Cruise’s largest worldwide opening ever. Universal also just crossed $3 billion worldwide, so clearly they are doing okay. Wonder Woman repeated at the top with $57 million, while Captain Underpants fell to third. Pirates 5 and Guardians 2 rounded out the top 5. In sixth place, It Comes At Night came in below expectations with $6 million, ultimately unable to capitalize on a strong critical reception (possibly due to a decidedly mixed reaction from moviegoers themselves).

1. Wonder Woman — $57.2M
2. The Mummy — $32.2M
3. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie — $12.3M
4. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales — $10.7M
5. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 — $6.2M
6. It Comes at Night — $6M
7. Baywatch — $4.6M
8. Megan Leavey — $3.8M
9. Alien: Covenant — $1.8M
10. Everything, Everything — $1.6M

    Still think it was a mistake for Universal to turn the franchise into a action franchise instead of a horror franchise. I think that really would have set these series of movies apart from every other summer blockbuster. Plus Kurtzman is a hack and he should really be nowhere near hollywood…same for Orci and Lindlehof.

    Wondering about It Comes At Night really not being a “true” horror movie and that is why the audiences didn’t like it.
