‘Ahead of its release in the U.S., “The Mummy” is enjoying a strong opening in at least one overseas territory. The Tom Cruise film opened to $6.6 million in South Korea on Tuesday — that’s the biggest opening day ever in the market.
The previous record was set last year by “Train to Busan,” which went on to earn a record-shattering $34.3 million over its five-day opening run. The Korean zombie apocalypse movie still holds the record in the country for the highest single day gross with $9.9 million.’
