Overseas Box Office Rescues The Mummy

Tom Cruise in'The Mummy

This one was way different though, and fans saw a different Tom Cruise in this one. 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.

Aside from The Mummy, Patty Jenkins' directorial Wonder Woman is flying high at the worldwide box office and domestic as well.

Combining that with its domestic take, "The Mummy", budgeted at around $125 million (tack on another $90 million or so for marketing), earned Cruise his biggest global opening ever with $174 million, passing the $167.4 million earned for 2005's "War of the Worlds".

Universal's first big release in their so-called Dark Universe has officially bombed at the domestic box office, but The Mummy has at least managed to scrape back its budget internationally.

Stan Wawrinka: 'Hopefully Djokovic can find his tennis soon!'
Andy Murray rebounded strongly to beat Kei Nishikori 2-6, 6-1, 7-6, 6-1 in the quarter-finals of Roland Garros . But the eighth seed hit back to triumph 0-6 6-4 6-4 6-0 and reach his seventh grand slam quarter-final.

His star power is strong overseas where audiences care less about Tom's public relations disasters including the famous Oprah Winfrey incident where he jumped on her couch while declaring his love for Katie Holmes. The film held a 17% review score on Rotten Tomatoes as of Sunday morning.

Meagan Leavey, nabbing an A CinemaScore, is projected to debut in the $4 million range from 1,956 cinemas, ahead of expectations. But looking globally, the movie has the most interesting box office storyline of the weekend.

In fact, Universal Studio's confirmed our suspicion. Johnny Depp signed up to play the Invisible Man, and Javier Bardem will play Frankenstein's Monster.

The Mummy is now playing in theaters worldwide.

"The array of titles available for us and the talent we have coming on board for the ones coming up, they all have to operate as an individual title", said Clark. Granted, my two young boys have a lot to do with that, but it actually looks like a nice turnaround for Pixar after CARS 2 and there's definitely a market for another movie about talking cars.

"Wonder Woman" has now grossed a total of $205 million domestically and $230.2 million overseas. Lessons are learned from every movie. Directed by Trey Edward Shults (Krisha), the $5 million film stars Joel Edgerton as a man trying to protect his family from an unnatural threat, only to find his plan go awry upon the arrival of another desperate family.

The other notable debuts included the critically acclaimed A24 horror feature "It Comes at Night", which crept up to a $6 million first weekend for director Trey Edward Shults.

The action adventure film has earned approximately 3.5 to 3.75 crore at the box office in India, clearly stating that the film has not thrilled the audience with its action and adventure.

It Comes at Night opened with a disappointing start, bringing in $6 million in its first weekend of release.
