Big returns for the Mummy

May 07, 2001 by Ian Evans

Depending on the box office estimates you check, the Brendan Fraser vehicle The Mummy Returns hauled in roughly $68.1 million over the weekend. Regardless of the numbers, it broke the North American non-holiday weekend record held by Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. It’s now also second only to The Lost World: Jurassic Park for overall debut take.

Sylvester Stallone’s Driven ran out of gas and crossed the finish line in a distant second with $6.1 million.
