'Wonder Woman' buries 'The Mummy' with $57.2M at weekend box office

Tom Cruise's The Mummy only banked $32 million on its opening weekend ($10 million less than Brendan Fraser's earned when it debuted in 1999 when ticket prices were more than 30% cheaper).

Tom Cruise's "Mummy" reboot opened to almost $142-M internationally, "Wonder Woman" #1 in North America after falling just 45% in its 2nd frame.

The well-reviewed film stars Gal Gadot, she of the Fast and Furious series, as the Amazonian goddess-princess-superhero whose lasso, bracelet and tiara have magical powers.

Universal is daring to go where superheroes successfully tread these days, trying to fashion a connected cinematic universe out of its classic monsters, including the Mummy, the Invisible Man and Mr. Hyde. Universal and Condon, fresh off the $1 billion-plus success of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, have cast Javier Bardem as Frankenstein's Monster, though his female counterpart has not yet been announced. Made for US$125 million, it has been widely panned by critics. "If every potential universe banked its future on North American returns only, there may arguably be no movies with greater than a "2" after their title given this current climate". Directed by Alex Kurtzman, The Mummy stars Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe.

"Wonder Woman" collected more than $58.5 million between Friday and Sunday, giving it a two-week total of $206.3 million, according to comScore.

Sony's preventing cross-platform play on Rocket League too
Support for cross-platform play is slated to roll out this summer as a free update to the mobile and VR versions of Minecraft . But when you're continually adding to the world, bit by bit over a period of years, borders can eventually become a problem.

For the second week in a row, "Wonder Woman" has the US box office all tied up. Internationally, the film grossed $2.2 million this weekend and is up to $466.8 million, for a worldwide total of $833.2 million. With a reported production budget of $149 million, Wonder Woman has already made bank and continues to break records.

Elsewhere down the box-office tally, the family-friendly animated comedy "Captain Underpants" skivvied up to $12.3 million in its second weekend, for a 10-day total $44.6 million. With a $38 million budget and an global roll-out that has yet to take flight, I can't imagine that anyone at Fox is too anxious about where "Captain Underpants' will eventually end up".

"Woman" has now accrued about $205 million domestically and another $230.2 from foreign markets.

The second installment for Guardians of the Galaxy has had a really impressive box office run now with $366 million domestic and $828 million worldwide.
