    Harsh reporting from Variety trying to blame the flop on Cruise, but this is the paragraph that is most relevant to the discussion in this thread:

    Universal knew that if it wanted “The Mummy” to compete against the likes of “Wonder Woman” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” it needed every ounce of Cruise’s waning star power. As the studio scrambled to deal with weak tracking, it released a portrait in late May of Cruise with other actors from the Dark Universe franchise, including Depp and Javier Bardem (who will play Frankenstein). Yet the studio couldn’t even assemble all the actors in the room at the same time, and the image had to be Photoshopped. The Internet reaction to the last-ditch marketing effort was tepid at best. It was another reminder that the big names that once ruled Hollywood are inspiring a lot less love from audiences..

    It's also the reason why Cruise appears as tall as Crowe! Mystery solved!

    We should start pool on the inevitably low tomato meter score. Whoever guesses closest wins .. something? Sidebets for predicting if this will be more poorly received than I, Frankenstein.
    We should do this for the next movie. For fun.

    I doubt any of these films will match the $8.6 million opening weekend and 3% Tomatometer for I, Frankenstein.

    Despite it only making $78 mil in the US, the Mummy still somehow managed to make ~$400 WW.
