Box office top 20: ‘Wonder Woman’ stays strong

NEW YORK: The audience for “Wonder Woman” slid less in the film’s second week than any superhero film in more than a decade, leaving the acclaimed Warner Bros. release no. 1 for the second week.

“Wonder Woman” sold $58.5 million in tickets over the weekend in North America, according to final box-office figures Monday. Even in its second weekend, “Wonder Woman” thumped the newly released, terribly reviewed “The Mummy,” which debuted poorly with $31.7 million.

The Tom Cruise-led “Mummy” launches Universal’s “Dark Universe,” the studio’s big-budget gambit for a Marvel-like franchise of monster movies.

The top 20 movies at US and Canadian theaters Friday through Sunday, followed by distribution studio, gross, number of theater locations, average receipts per location, total gross and number of weeks in release, as compiled Monday by comScore:

  1. “Wonder Woman,” Warner Bros., $58,520,672, 4,165 locations, $14,051 average, $206,343,175, 2 Weeks.
