Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) and Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) face off in "The Mummy". The success of "Wonder Woman" - now with $435 million globally - also points to a studio (Warner Bros.) pivoting after a poor response to previous DC Comics releases ("Suicide Squad", "Batman v. Superman"). According to Exhibitor Relations, Wonder Woman has collected $57 million in the second week, the film stands with total $205 million domestic box office collection.
At the box office this weekend, The Mummy squared off with reigning champ Wonder Woman... and lost. He also does comedy well; as Les Grossman in Tropic Thunder, he was nearly unrecognizable and very amusing with it. Collateral saw him playing the villain easily, and though his action skill set was needed, so too was an ability to really drive a convincing performance. It brought in an estimated $32.
So, all of those films are part of the history of the Universal monsters, and as such I thought, rather than say it's not part of the canon, let's say, 'No, it is part of the canon; we're just taking it somewhere new'. It took in $141.8 million outside of America, Cruise's biggest ever worldwide opening. 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. Carpou cited the 75-foot-tall sarcophagus unveiled at the intersection of Hollywood and Highland, and the movie's VR experience as potential buzz generators.
It's been a long time since Brendan Fraser was delivering one-liners in the desert. Cruise plays the man who discovers the tomb of Ahmanet and unleashes her powers.
The first entry to the new monster universe is not being received warmly by critics because it failed to scare or excite the audience. 2014's "Dracula Untold", it turns out, is not canon.
Kurtzman, who is best known for his credits as a screenwriter ("Transformers", "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", "Star Trek", "Star Trek: Into Darkness") and producer ("Now You See Me", TV shows "Scorpion" and "Hawaii Five-0"), said he doesn't read reviews. "It's not about which one went first". "There will be a lot riding on Bride of Frankenstein". Playing on 1,956 screens, the film made just $3.7 million and finished in the #8 spot. Later this year, he's starring in American Made, a drug-trafficking thriller that re-teams him with Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman. The studio dropped the trailer for the crime-centric action biopic on Monday, presumably a strategic move to get audiences excited about its star. This indicates Raabta is ahead of all the other two films, though overall none of this week's releases shined at the Box Office.
