'Wonder Woman' buries 'The Mummy' at box office

"Wonder Woman" lassoed the box office for a second straight weekend, burying Tom Cruise's "The Mummy" and belting another studio's bid to build a billion-dollar world of interlocking franchises. Bringing in an estimated $32 million in its domestic debut is "The Mummy".

Following up its record-breaking opening weekend last week, "Wonder Woman" repeated its box office victory worldwide.

The Gal Gadot-starring blockbuster from Warner Bros. and DC Comics once again claimed the top domestic slot for the weekend, taking in $57.18 million to bring its 10-day total to $205 million, according to ComScore. The DCEU superhero movie squared off against Universal's The Mummy reboot, the first movie in the studio's Dark Universe franchise, A24's indie thriller It Comes at Night and Bleecker Street's true story adaptation Megan Leavey. But instead of falling prey to the curse of the DC Extended Universe, Wonder Woman remained strong.
