Wonder Woman defends its North American box office title

14 June 2017

"Wonder Woman" ruled the box office for the second straight week with an estimated $57 million weekend, bringing its USA total to more than $205 million.

Domestically (in America) the film has not gone down that well with a $32.2 million debut, but internationally the film has and takes $141.8 million, the film is opened in 64 countries this week.

"Wonder Woman" has come in first at the weekend box office.

The poor opening for The Mummy, which cost an estimated USD125 million to produce, meant a weak start for Universal's ballyhooed Dark Universe. The latest offering from DC added $57 million, pushing past the $200 million mark to end the weekend at $205 million.

Meghan Markle's Costar Says She Is 'Happy' With Prince Harry
It was the first time Miss Markle has been seen since she arrived at Pippa Middleton's wedding reception in Berkshire last month. When Markle was asked whether she had hopes of marrying Prince Harry though, things went silent when she did not reply.

The women power, courtesy, Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot, continues to stay strong at the box office in its second week too! It is expected that "The Mummy" will scare up a strong $140 million globally to top the global charts.

But while Wonder Woman had yet another successful weekend, the same can't be said for Universal Pictures' The Mummy. Universal is hoping that The Mummy, and in turn the Dark Universe, will see incredible success overseas and becoming another Fast of the Furious franchise. However, it's not all bad news for the film!

It would have been unbelievable to see Brendan Fraser back for more Mummy action in this year's remake, but sadly, he didn't make an appearance alongside Tom Cruise as the new lead.

But critics slammed the film, directed by Alex Kurtzman; it has a dismal 17 percent "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. After 10 days, Wonder Woman has lassoed some $70 million in the Middle Kingdom, according to Beijing box-office tracker Ent Group.

"Wonder Woman" has had a wondrous run in theaters so far. A film can't just seem like another link on the movie chain, a lesson modern Hollywood seems incapable of learning. "Leavey", meanwhile, is earning a mere $1.9 million from 1,956, making it a complete dud.

Fifth spot went to another Disney production, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, at US$6.2 million.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tells", $34.8 million.
