Universal’s The Mummy reboot had a disappointing domestic opening at the box office.
It was expected to be one of the hits of the year in the US but struggled on its debut, following a string of poor reviews. According to BoxOffice.com, the film was projected to make $50 million in its opening domestic weekend, but it only managed $32 million, which is almost half of Wonder Woman‘s weekend profit.

The Mummy also stars Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance, and Russell Crowe.
