Wonder Woman wrapped up Tom Cruise’s The Mummy at the weekend box office, pulling in an estimated $57.2 million in North American theatres.
Universal’s The Mummy looked its age, selling a relatively feeble $32.2 million in tickets in its debut weekend.
That couldn’t compete with Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman in its second weekend. The Gal Gadot superhero film has quickly earned more than $205 million domestically in two weeks.
The poor opening for The Mummy, which cost an estimated $125 million to produce, meant a weak start for Universal’s ballyhooed Dark Universe. The Mummy is intended to launch a new connected franchise of monster movies.
