That couldn't compete with Wonder Woman in its second weekend. The film made $174 million internationally, with its two biggest audiences coming from South Korea and China, for a total of $204 million worldwide; in China alone The Mummy brought in more than $50 million. That's even better than the movie was expected to do in its second weekend, even with such positive reviews, press, and word of mouth. Meanwhile, the Kate Mara vehicle Megan Leavey managed to earn $3.8 million on just under 2,000 screens, which was good enough for eighth place.
It also had another terrific weekend at the overseas box office, taking in another 58.1 million dollars from 57 markets for a global cume of 435 million dollars. Seeing as it's the first in a franchise of monster movies known as Dark Universe, you'd assume Universal would want to tease that out.
Alex Kurtzman directed "The Mummy", a revival of the franchise spawned by Universal's 1932 original and re-popularized by Stephen Sommers' 1999 fright-fest starring Brendan Fraser, and the three other Mummy films that followed. The film has far exceeded industry expectations and it is on par with the 2013 release of Man of Steel, in terms of box office success.
