NEW YORK (AP) — Tom Cruise was no match for Wonder Woman .

Warner Brothers' Wonder Woman wrapped up Cruise's The Mummy at the weekend box office, pulling in an estimated US$57.2 million in North American theatres, according to studio estimates yesterday. Universal's The Mummy looked its age, selling a relatively feeble US$32.2 million in tickets in its debut weekend.

That couldn't compete with Wonder Woman in its second weekend. The Gal Gadot superhero film, directed by Patty Jenkins, has quickly earned US$205 million domestically in two weeks.
