The Mummy still took in 42.5 on its opening
weekend, putting its hero Brendan Fraser
in the unique position of being the star
of two top grossing movies back to back:
earlier his Journey to the Center of the
Earth, the Jules Verne fantasy classic redone
in 3-D, opened at $20 million.
And poor X-Files. Even in its second weekend
it is only ninth at the B.O. with $3.4 million.
It could earn the title of the summer's
biggest bomb, having taken in only $17 million.
