The Mummy is likely to slump under the feet of Wonder Woman towards the weekend at US box office which concludes on June 11. If the pre-release prediction is correct, the Universal’s film, The Mummy which features Tom Cruise as the main character, might not attain more than $35 million from the 4,000 plays, a move that has put too much pressure on the movie’s foreign performance.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Mummy reboot is supposed to draw between $35 million and $40 million during the domestic opening at the box office. On June 8, the major tracking service company further lowered The Mummy projections from $35 million to $33 million citing poor reviews ratings from the influencers.
The modern action film which was directed by Alex Kurtzman cost more than $125 million to build. The film is currently anticipated to perform fairly in the foreign markets for it has previously scaled high in South Korea with about $7 million achieved in a single day. Other stars featured in the movie include; Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Russell Crowe, Jake Johnson and Courtney B. Vance.
At the moment, the Wonder Woman that was released last weekend at the box office is expected to break sale record of more than $50 million in the coming weekend. Another film that is likely to perform better is the Captain Underpants which features Kevin Hart’s voice among others.
Apart from The Mummy, other films opening this weekend include the indie-horror, It Comes At Night featuring Joel Edgerton which is expected to gross between $6 million to $7 million from an estimate of about 2,500 dramas. There is also the true-life war hero play, ‘Megan Leavey’, starring Kate Mara.
It’s obvious that Wonder Woman will retain the first position in the second weekend with more than $50 million as a result of its popularity among the viewers. It will be a big challenge for The Mummy or another film-maker to surpass Wonder Woman’s prime position for the awaiting three-day period. The audience is eagerly waiting for the turn out of events over the weekend.
