The movie couldn't dislodge Wonder Woman from the top slot on its opening weekend, and in fact, fell some distance short.
The film will earn an estimated $57.2 million this weekend.
"Wonder Woman" is still wonderful at the box office, but Tom Cruise and "The Mummy" are staggering. Going all the way back to the 1930s, Universal was known for creature features such as Dracula, The Mummy, Frankenstein, the Invisible Man and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. 2 million in North America.
The studio is hoping to use "The Mummy" to launch a series of connected movies in a connected "cinematic universe". In the 33 worldwide markets where "The Mummy" opened between Wednesday and Thursday, the movie took in $20.5 million. The Mummy already grossed an $18.7 million first day in China - the biggest opening for a Tom Cruise movie ever.
"There are so many characters that intersect in so many ways that are exciting for us", he added.
Cherchesov wants new period of Russian Federation success
Stanislav Cherchesov wasn't Russia's first choice to be the side's new manager but he's working hard to revive the team. Russia's victory showed it can win a big game at home, even if Putin is in the arena.
This Friday released Tom Cruise's much-awaited film of the year "The Mummy" is not getting a desirable response. 2014's "Dracula Untold", it turns out, is not canon.
Duncan Clark, president of global distribution for Universal, played down the connective tissue between "The Mummy" and future Dark Universe releases. "It's not about which one went first". It is now being shown in over 4,212 cinemas worldwide, and "Wonder Woman" was opened in more than 100 major markets in the world. The studio dropped the trailer for the crime-centric action biopic on Monday, presumably a strategic move to get audiences excited about its star.
- Notable new releases "It Comes At Night" and "Megan Leavey" start below the Top 5. Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman broke box office records for a female directed motion picture, and finally gave the DCEU a thunderously entertaining movie.
Thriller It Comes at Night aimed for more discerning horror fans. Spin-off The Scorpion King also opened higher, earning $36 million. That puts it on course for as high as $380 million in the U.S. and a money maker on a $200 million budget. And "Beatriz at Dinner" from Roadside Attractions is gobbling up $139,000 from only five spots. Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" will sail to fourth with an additional $10.7 million from 3,679 theaters. Bringing in an estimated $32 million in its domestic debut is "The Mummy".
