Despite a poor critical reception and a mixed audience reaction, the Dark Universe launching pad performed as expected overseas, earning over $141.8 million from 63 territories, which, combined with its subpar domestic haul of $32.2 million, will give it a massive worldwide opening of $174 million, the largest global opening for a Tom Cruise film ever.
"Wonder Woman", the acclaimed Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment superhero film, brought in an estimated $57.2 million at the North American box office this weekend. The DCEU movie witnessed a $100 million debut at the domestic box office last week.
Believe it or not, The Mummy is the #1 film in the world!

This is certainly mixed news for The Mummy, as it likely means that the domestic box office will settle in around $30 million during the opening weekend.
Universal Pictures also put out the three Mummy movies that starred Brendan Fraser, so it was easy to expect that they would eventually reboot the franchise.
With Universal's The Mummy hitting theaters on Friday, Jake Johnson (who plays Chris Vail in the film) took part in a round of "Co-star Crush" on EW: The Show in order to share the love for his fellow cast-mates, and there was a lot to go around. Third place was Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie at an estimated $3.6 million and then Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales with an estimated $3 million.
