Weekend Box-Office: THE MUMMY No Match for WONDER WOMAN


"The Mummy" had great hopes of being a box-office hit going into the weekend, but unfortunately the Tom Cruise led blockbuster stood no chance against Warner Bros' "Wonder Woman". Meanwhile semi-wide releases "It Comes at Night" and "Megan Leavey" struggled in top Top 10.

Find out more about the weekend box office after the jump.

"Wonder Woman" continues its stellar box-office performance with $57.1 million over the weekend, a decent 44% drop, the best week-to-week evolution for a DCEU film. The comic book adaptation has reached a total of $205 million domestically and $230.2 million overseas.

Universal's "The Mummy" reboot starring Tom Cruise failed to attract audiences and only managed a $32.2 million debut from 4,035 theaters. Even if the domestic numbers aren't looking good for the $125 million production, it could be said that internationally it's a hit with $141.8 million from 63 markets. Still, the Dark Universe is off to a bad start as the reboot failed to surpass the 1999 remake starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz, and its sequels. It also received a lackluster "B-" from opening night audiences according to CinemaScore, and the critics panned it (17% on Rotten Tomatoes and 34 on Metacritic).

The animated film "Captain Underpants" dropped to third place with $12.3 million and a domestic tally of $44.5 million. Not bad at all as the film cost $38 million to produce.

At #4 we have Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" which grossed $10.7 million. The sequel has now grossed $135.8 million domestically and its worldwide total has passed $500 million.

The Top 5 is rounded up by "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" with a weekend gross of $6.2 million and a global tally of over $800 million.

Other new releases include the biopic "Megan Leavey" and the horror film "It Comes At Night". The latter opened in sixth place with $6 million from 2,533 theaters and received a truly horrific "D" grade from CinemaScore, in stark contrast with the incredibly positive critical reception (86% on Rotten Tomatoes and 79 on Metacritic). "Megan Leavy" fared worse, finishing in eighth place with $3.7 million from 1,956 theaters, but was given a strong "A" on CinemaScore, while also receiving a generally positive reception from critics (80% on Rotten Tomatoes and 66 on Metacritic).

New Wide Releases: "The Mummy", "It Comes At Night", "Megan Leavey".

Biggest Drop : "Alien: Covenant" (-56%)

Smallest Drop : "Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2" (-36.6%)
