With poor reviews and negative fan reception, The Mummy has failed to dethrone Wonder Woman at the box-office. Wonder Woman is still the #1 movie in the world, dropping only 45% in its second weekend and grossing an amazing $57.2 million. The Mummy starring Tom Cruise debuted with just $32.2 million.

“It’s an extraordinary hold for an extraordinary film,” said Jeff Goldstein, the distribution chief at Warner Bros. “When you open up at this high level, to have only a 45% drop, you just don’t see it.”

Things aren’t looking good for The Mummy, which was expected to kickstart a new shared universe for Universal. I wouldn’t be surprised if plans for future films start to shift with this disappointing debut. Wonder Woman has now grossed a worldwide total of $435 million.
