In the USA, the first entry of the Dark Universe just isn't making any kind of dent at the box office as Wonder Woman continues to make big waves with audiences through word-of-mouth.
Two newcomers took the first and the second places for the weekend box office. The well-received "Wonder Woman" also reversed a recent trend for DC films: "Man of Steel", "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad" each plummeted at least 65 percent in their second weekends; "Wonder Woman" dropped just 45 percent. Should word-of-mouth continue to remain high, it could go well past that milestone as well.
Duncan Clark, president of worldwide distribution for Universal, played down the connective tissue between "The Mummy" and future Dark Universe releases.
The North American opening for The Mummy had a weak start and its domestic revenue didn't cover the production costs. That score was significantly greater than the film's weak performance in North America.
Reviews for the Alex Kurtzman feature were downright bad. The film has a 93 percent Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an A CinemaScore from audiences.

Next was Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales", the latest installment in the popular franchise starring Johnny Depp as a dreadlocked pirate, at $10.7 million. Falling another 52%, it finished at #4 with $10.7 million. The overseas market has contributed $393 million to the Mouse House's bank account so far. "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" continued to be a force in its sixth week in release, taking in $6.2 million for a global total of $833.2 million. With a $38 million budget and an worldwide roll-out that has yet to take flight, I can't imagine that anyone at Fox is too anxious about where "Captain Underpants' will eventually end up".
The action movie sold 381,000 tickets over the weekend at 679 screens, adding to the total of 458,000 tickets since the movie hit theaters on Thursday. Cars 3 should easily win the weekend with an estimated $55-60 million opening.
