(Newser) Wonder Woman wrapped up Tom Cruise's The Mummy at the weekend box office, pulling in an estimated $57.2 million in North American theaters. Universal's The Mummy looked its age, selling a relatively feeble $32.2 million in tickets in its debut weekend, reports the AP. 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. In third place was Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie from Fox, which is expected to pull in $13 million, per Variety. (The reviews for The Mummy were pretty bad, while the opposite was true for Wonder Woman.)
