‘Wonder Woman’ Hits $700 Million Milestone at the Box Office
In its fifth weekend in theaters, Wonder Woman continues to pull in big bucks at the box office. The Patty Jenkins directed film made another $15.75 million this weekend, despite stiff competition from Despicable Me 3 and Baby Driver.
With its North American box office profits from this weekend added to what the movie brought in overseas, it helped the film surpass the $700 million milestone. Currently, the film has earned $707.9m worldwide and still has yet to open in Japan, which will happen in August.
In the 31 days since it’s been released, Wonder Woman has made a domestic total of $346.1 million, making it the DCEU’s top-grossing film at the North American box office, continuing to prove the naysayers wrong.
One of the film’s most amazing feats is that it’s only experienced a 37% drop, meaning it’s on pace to pass American Sniper ($350m), Furious 7 ($353m), Deadpool ($363m) and The Secret Life of Pets ($368m) to become the second-biggest domestic grossing movie that isn’t Disney, behind Universal’s Jurassic World.
Recently, it was confirmed that Jenkins and Geoff Johns were in the process of writing the treatment for the sequel to Wonder Woman and with all the film’s success, it’s no surprise that both DC and Warner Bros. want to begin work on Wonder Woman 2.
