It's been almost a decade since we last saw a movie involving The Mummy from Universal Studios.

Instead of making a sequel with Brendan Fraser, the studio instead made a reboot starring Tom Cruise as the main character.

The new film is supposed to kick off a new Dark Universe world involving lots of other supernatural characters from cinema history.

Well it looks like The Mummy is not off to a great start judging by the reviews that have come out this week. By looking at Rotten Tomatoes, you can see that the rating for the film is a dismal 26 percent (as of time of writing).

61 reviews have been collected so far and only 16 people like it. The rest of the 45 reviewers have given it a sour review. You can read the critical consensus below.

Lacking the campy fun of the franchise's most recent entries and failing to deliver many monster-movie thrills, The Mummy suggests a speedy unraveling for the Dark Universe.

A look at the reviews say that this could be one of the worst movies that Tom Cruise has ever made as the main lead.

This should be seen as a disappointment because Cruise had been starring in many hits lately. It is also not a good start to the Dark Universe that Universal is planning for the next few years.

The poor reviews are sure to affect The Mummy's potential at the Box Office this weekend. In North America, the movie is projected to make $35 million in its opening weekend.

This is behind the anticipated $50 million at Wonder Woman is expected to take in its second weekend. It's possible Wonder Woman could get an even higher number if people decide not to watch Tom Cruise's movie altogether.
