That's only a 45% drop from its opening weekend, giving the film an estimated $205 million domestically in two weekends.

And Tom's latest film couldn't compete with Wonder Woman in its second weekend.

In a statement to THR, a Universal exec said the film's rotten reviews didn't help.

Meanwhile, not celebrating the same success, The Mummy opened to a low $32.2 million. Internationally, Wonder Woman grossed $58.1 million from 57 markets this weekend and has now earned $230.2 million (with $68.4 million coming from China).


"There are so many characters that intersect in so many ways that are exciting for us", he added. Put it this way - The Scorpion King made $36 million on its opening weekend, and that was a spinoff of the Brendan Fraser series.

Because studios ultimately generate the most profits from ticket sales in the US and other Western nations, though, "The Mummy" may not be as profitable as films that perform better domestically. Russell Crowe and Annabella Wallis also star. But should there be any doubt, it's still full-steam ahead for the Dark Universe. Hasn't worked out well so far, unless you're one of the handful of moviegoers with fond memories of "Van Helsing" or "Dracula Untold". "I'm really excited to see what Bill Condon does with Bride of Frankenstein". The film opened up in total 33 worldwide markets on Wednesday and Thursday, the film grossed $20.5 million from the global markets.

Two other movies from a pair of indie distributors also opened nationwide this weekend: A24's apocalyptic horror film It Comes at Night and Bleecker Street's drama Megan Leavey, starring Kate Mara as a young Marine fighting in Iraq with her bomb-sniffing combat dog. Even though the film has officially bombed at the domestic box office, it has soared overseas and pushed the box office returns well over its production budget.

Still, $31.5 million isn't great and it goes to show that audiences in North America are not as enthralled with the concept of the Dark Universe that the studio may have hoped for. And "Beatriz at Dinner" from Roadside Attractions is gobbling up $139,000 from only five spots. The franchise's fifth starring Johnny Depp now has over $600 million worldwide. The DCEU movie witnessed a $100 million debut at the domestic box office last week.
