The Warner Bros. film took in a paltry $2.8 million in its opening weekend as "Spiral," a creepy addition to the terrifying "Saw" franchise, brought in $8.7 million between Friday and Sunday.
In its second weekend in US cinemas, “Wonder Woman 1984” earned an estimated $5.5 million in ticket sales, a 67 percent drop for the superhero sequel.
