Top returns won’t be “The Mummy”‘s

This is the weekend that The Mummy Returns will almost certainly become unraveled. It will face competition from three imposing rivals: first and foremost, DreamWorks’ computer-animated Shrek (which opened in limited release on Wednesday) and could pull in $40 million or more, according to some analysts; the flashy Moulin Rouge, starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, and Angel Eyes, with box-office magnet Jennifer Lopez. Many analysts are predicting a record turnout.
