Don't let the glumness of the previous films in DC's expanded universe put you off; Wonder Woman is good old fashioned fun, and the sequel can't arrive soon enough.
This makes "The Mummy" Tom Cruise's biggest worldwide opening weekend ever as it tops the opening of 167.4 million dollars of "War of the Worlds" in 2005.
Despite the excellent performance overseas, critics slammed the movie.
Starring Kim Ok-bin as a Korean-Chinese killer, the action-packed movie unfolds as she gets a second lease on life after the South Korean Intelligence agency recruits her to be a sleeper agent.
Sorry, Tom Cruise! Your movie was no match for the smash hit Wonder Woman.
"'The Mummy' existing in a larger world of gods and monsters began to emerge as a key idea", Kurtzman told Business Insider. Johnny Depp's Invisible Man is to follow some time after. Universal is hoping that The Mummy, and in turn the Dark Universe, will see incredible success overseas and becoming another Fast of the Furious franchise.
Goldstein said that a relatively even 55 percent-45 percent split of female to male audiences suggests that "Wonder Woman" is appealing to wide, diverse audiences and that the more optimistic tone of the film could help inform the aesthetics of the other commercially successful but critically moribund DC Comics franchises.
However, it found its audience in the global market.
China led the charge with a spectacular $52.2 million launch, followed by South Korea with $17.8 million, Russian Federation with $7.8 million, Mexico with $5.1 million, and Taiwan with $4.9 million.
Clinging to 10th spot, Warner Bros./Roadshow's dud King Arthur: Legend of the Sword plunged by 52 per cent to $255,000 in its fourth chapter, tallying $5.4 million.
- "Wonder Woman" keeps dominating North American box office.
The worldwide box office has once again saved a huge studio movie from its less-than-blockbuster domestic performance. As it turned out, the movie earned an estimated $32.2 million, underperforming against its own lowered expectations. It is still scheduled to open in a number of territories in the next few days so numbers are expected to go up albeit not significantly. The film starring Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis in the lead role, the film also starring Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, Marwan Kenzari, Javier Botet and Russell Crowe.
