Universal released the latest movie in the Mummy franchise on Friday with The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

The expectation by many in Hollywood is that the movie has enough to beat out The Dark Knight, which has ruled for two-weeks straight.

The Dark Knight is predicted to gross another $40 million this coming weekend at the box office, but it may not be enough.

Experts believe that the latest movie in the Mummy franchise will gross well over $50 million, giving it the top spot.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor brings back the hero played by Brendan Frasier, going up against a new villain played by Jet Li.

The first movie, The Mummy, opened to $43.4 million. Its sequel, The Mummy Returns, took in $68 million in its opening weekend.
