Warner Bros.’ superhero epic Wonder Woman once again took the top spot at the weekend box office with another $57.2 million. The film has now cracked the $200 million mark domestically and sits at just over $435 million worldwide.
Universal’s rebooted-reboot The Mummy scared up $32.2 million for a second place debut over the weekend. The film has a steep hill to climb with the movie’s estimated $125 million budget. And while the film looked decent enough from the trailers, Hamilton Today film critic David Brill was among many other critics who didn’t enjoy the film.
“The Mummy is a truly appalling piece of cinema,” stated Bril after a showing over the weekend. “It is so bad on every level you can imagine. Seriously this has to be the worst movie of 2017, I simply can’t imagine seeing a worse movie.”
The Mummy has a 17% freshness rating as of Sunday.
The next three films in the top five are the same as the 2-4 spots from last week. Paramount’s Baywatch slipped to #6 this weekend.
Animated feature Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie from 20th Century Fox and Dreamworks Animation took in another $12.3 million. Disney’s one-two punch of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 took in $10.7 million and $6.2 million respectively.
Next weekend will see Disney release another big movie at the box office with the release of Pixar’s Cars 3. Sony / Columbia will also release the dark comedy Rough Night. Horror/thriller 47 Meters Down and the LionsGate / Summit drama All Eyez on Me also hits the big screen.
