10. Release date
In the slaughterhouse that is usually summer movie season, the film’s June 2 release date actually bodes well. The previous weekend sees Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Baywatch duke it out, giving Wonder Woman a wide berth the weekend after. And on June 9 is The Mummy reboot starring Tom Cruise, the first in the proposed Universal Monsters cinematic universe, which doesn’t have much buzz behind it at the moment, potentially giving it top #1 weekends to brag about. And it isn’t until two weeks later that Transformers: The Last Knight cuts in.
