The Mummy Prepares to Bury the Competition

According to the calendar, summer doesn’t technically start for a few more weeks. Hollywood folks, being the impatient bunch they are, clearly have their own profit-determining timetable and have ushered in summer blockbusters weeks before the calendar dictates. Taking a page (dated approximately 75 years ago) out of our illustrious comic book history, WONDER WOMAN proved to be a modern-day, box-office hit last weekend. Will the wonder of her continue indefinitely?
Also taking a giant leap back in time, THE MUMMY, while certainly terrifying, is hoping hanging out with Tom Cruise will result in a long and happy movie future. Does she have what it takes to bury the less-than-dead competition?
Speaking of not-quite dead, just when will PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES stop talking? Perhaps less talk and more action might make the BAYWATCH gang more edge-of-your-beach chair entertaining.
After providing weeks of entertainment, how much is left to say in that entertaining GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: VOL 2?
As is typically the case with true horror, IT COMES AT NIGHT (when moviegoers are tired and less likely to see the obvious terror approaching). Will audiences come out in droves, day or night, to witness the devastation? Will we be requiring THE HUNTER’S PRAYER to survive that scare?
On a more family-friendly note, might CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS, who probably has an early curfew, get a decent wardrobe while maintaining his infamous, animated notoriety?
Then there’s real-life, modern-day marine MEGAN LEAVEY and her loyal, life-saving dog. Will they inspire loyalty among audiences this weekend?
Which of the infamous found on the big screen will inspire loyalty this weekend?
