As Wonder Woman heads into its fourth week of release, the Patty Jenkins directed film continues to break box office and film industry records.
The film has become the best opening for a female director to-date and has surpassed $600 million in worldwide box office revenue. Not bad for a film they first estimated would only make around $65 million in its opening weekend. In fact, it made over $100 million – just in case you were wondering.
The DCEU film has continually proved all the naysayers wrong and just moved past Phyllidia Lloyd’s 2008 flick Mamma Mia, to earn the top spot as best-grossing live-action film by a female filmmaker (who directed the project solo).
Wonder Woman also grossed more than Man of Steel in domestic revenue. By Thursday the film had made $293.2 million at the North American box office, breezing past the $291 million total that Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel pulled in.
It will be interesting to see how much money domestically and globally Wonder Woman will bank by the time it’s no longer in theaters. The movie might break even more records; only time will tell.
If you haven’t had the chance to see Wonder Woman, catch it in theaters now!
