Box Office: June 9-11, 2017
Wonder Woman was Number One at the box office for the second week in a row over the weekend with $57.1 Million for $205 Million so far. Worldwide, Wonder Woman has brought in $435.2 Million. The Mummy premiered in Second Place with $32.4 Million. That was far below what the expectations were for this film. They were below mine. I had the film opening between $50-70 Million. The abysmal yet hilarious reviews for The Mummy did not help.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie was Third with $12.3. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was Fourth with $10.7 Million for $135.8 Million so far. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was Fifth with 6.2 Million for $366.3 Million so far. World-wide, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has made $828.2 Million.
I almost predicted the placement of all Top Five films this weekend. I was one film off, the last film in the Top Five.
The Mummy is a 2017 American action-adventure film directed by Alex Kurtzman and written by David Koepp, Christopher McQuarrie and Dylan Kussman, with a story by Kurtzman, Jon Spaihts and Jenny Lumet. It is a soft reboot of The Mummy franchise and the first installment in the Dark Universe film series, though Kurtzman said that the film was set in the same continuity as Stephen Sommers’ The Mummy trilogy and its spin-offs. The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe.
It Comes at Night is a 2017 American psychological horror film written and directed by Trey Edward Shults. It stars Joel Edgerton, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Riley Keough.
Megan Leavey is a 2017 American biographical drama film directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite and written by Pamela Gray, Annie Mumolo and Tim Lovestedt, based on the true events about young female Marine Megan Leavey and a combat dog named Rex. The film stars Kate Mara, Edie Falco, Common, Ramón Rodríguez and Tom Felton.
Next week sees the release of: Cars 3, 47 Meters Down, Rough Night, All Eyez on Me, and The Book of Henry. Find my predictions on these releases in my weekly Now In-Theater column. A preview: Cars 3 will open in First Place next weekend. Wonder Woman will be Second.
