“The Mummy” is closing in on $300 million worldwide after leading the international box office for the second consecutive weekend.
The Tom Cruise vehicle had a disappointing $32.2 million opening weekend in North America and a steep drop-off during week two. But overseas, it’s on track to earn $53 million in 68 territories this weekend, which would raise its international total to $239 million.
Universal and Illumination’s “Despicable Me 3” brought in $10 million abroad, ahead of its U.S. release. The animated movie opened in Australia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand to tie in with local school holidays.
For Disney, “Cars 3” opened to $21.3 million in a handful of markets, including Russia and Mexico. Next weekend the movie will open Australia and New Zealand as part of its gradual global rollout.
