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.
