Box Office Weekend: Wonder Woman Still Box Office Queen

Wonder Woman has easily buried The Mummy to land a second week atop the North American box office. The Tom Cruise film made only $32.2 million, marking a weak domestic debut for Comcast's (CMCSA) "Dark Universe". The Gal Gadot superhero film has quickly earned more than USD205 million domestically in two weeks. The latest offering from DC added $57 million, pushing past the $200 million mark to end the weekend at $205 million. Even though the film has officially bombed at the domestic box office, it has soared overseas and pushed the box office returns well over its production budget.

"Wonder Woman" is still at the top spot in North American theaters. The success of "Wonder Woman" - now with $435 million globally - also points to a studio (Warner Bros.) pivoting after a poor response to previous DC Comics releases ("Suicide Squad", "Batman v. Superman"). While most of the world was enjoying Cruise's attempt to breath life into Universal's planned (but probably cursed) Dark Universe franchise with The Mummy, the United States was going to see Wonder Woman again. Both films won over the critical consensus - "It Comes At Night" at 86% fresh, and "Megan Leavey" at 80% - but are lacking so far in box office receipts.

With this report, it is easy to say that "Wonder Woman" is a major and biggest hit this summer.

This week, she faced The Mummy at the box office which, as its own franchise with Tom Cruise at the helm, could've maybe proved to be a semi-formidable opponent.

"Obviously we always want to do the best gross we can and we were challenged domestically", said Nick Carpou, president of domestic theatrical distribution for Universal Pictures.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at US and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. The film released on June 9, Friday along with romantic Bollywood films like "Raabta" and 'Behen Hogi Teri.' The film received negative to mixed reviews from the critics and getting a lukewarm response from the audience. It cost a staggering $149 million to make the film, but the cash seems to have been well invested.

While "Batman Begins" and the first "Spider-Man" movie were both meant to kick off a series of films, in both cases the movies wait until they've told an intriguing story before setting up a sequel.
