The Mummy Tracking for A $40 Million-Plus U.S. Debut

The Mummy

While the 1999 edition of The Mummy was a financial success in its opening week earning 43 million domestically, one would think that a Tom Cruise-driven version of the franchise would rake in much more than that. However, that is not the case.

Universal’s The Mummy reboot is projected to open to a modest $40 million-plus in North America. While Universal has yet to make its final three-week marketing push for the film, there are sources with access to prerelease tracking, one major has the film opening at $40 million; another has it at $42 million.

While those are just domestic estimates, it is quite low for a Tom Cruise film which cost $125 million to make before marketing. The film hopes to take make their money back overseas if it fails to do so domestically.
