Box office: The Mummy gets lassoed by Wonder Woman

Not an enormous surprise, ladies and gentlemen: Wonder Woman dropped a bit from its opening weekend but still easily buried Tom Cruise and  The Mummy, which opened to $32 million while the DC superheroine took $57 million domestic. 

This is obviously a huge blow to Universal who was counting on launching a “dark universe” series of movies to counter all of Marvel and DC’s comic book heroes. What Universal wanted to do was resurrect all its old scary characters from out of its fault, bringing back the likes of Frankenstein and The Invisible Man. That ain’t gonna be such a great plan if The Mummy can only scare up $32 million. 

Anyhow, that is the box office report for this week. Also, my Cairns on Cinema column on Wonder Woman is now up.
