Wonder Woman defends its North American box office title”

Dark Universal's The Mummy completely failed to give any competition to Marvel Studios and DC Films" fourth installment "Wonder Woman.' However, Tom cruise's "The Mummy" has hit the China box office on Thursday and grossed $18.7 million, this is the highest opening ever for Tom Cruise's career, the film also hit the theaters in Russian Federation on Thursday as well and did the business of $1.6 million.

That's no mean feat for a superhero film, particularly given the patchy box office past of the DCEU though seemingly an easy one for Wonder Woman, which dropped just 44% on its second weekend.

For a second weekend in a row #WonderWoman has topped the domestic box office, taking an impressive $57.18 million, putting the domestic total at $205 million and worldwide total at $435 million, according to ComScore.

Even though the domestic performance wasn't what the studio's hoped, The Mummy did relatively well internationally, coming in at $141.8 million in 63 territories, including $52.2 million in China. With the release of "Mummy" film on June 9, 2017, everyone was expecting that this movie would give a tough competition to "Wonder Woman". The studio that was built on classics including "Dracula", "The Wolf Man", and "Frankenstein" has already slated a "Bride of Frankenstein" movie for 2019 with half a dozen or so others in the works. Bringing in an estimated $32 million in its domestic debut is "The Mummy". "We're looking forward to Bill Condon's movie".

The A24 thriller "It Comes at Night" aimed for more discerning horror fans.

The box-office reign of "Wonder Woman" is all but certain to end next weekend when Pixar's "Cars 3" opens.

- Notable new releases "It Comes At Night" and "Megan Leavey" start below the Top 5.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. While the critical reaction to the Joel Edgerton film was strong (86% on RT), audience reaction was very negative with a lowly D CinemaScore. Its cumulative stands on $70.2 million after 10 days.

In limited release, "My Cousin Rachel" is tracking to break $1 million from 523 locations.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tells", $34.8 million. It was narrowly ahead of "Beauty and the Beast", "Logan", and "Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2".
