‘Wonder Woman’ Helps the DCEU Pass the $3 Billion Mark Worldwide
Wonder Woman is still having an amazing run in theaters. This past weekend it topped $700 million worldwide and its box office take has been impressive since it’s opening weekend on June 2.
Attendance to Wonder Woman was up 39% on Monday in comparison to the previous Monday, so the film is on pace to pass the $355 million threshold domestically by the end of today.
Thus far, Wonder Woman has been showing little to no signs of box office fatigue and this helped the DCEU in surpassing $3 billion worldwide. This is from the combined box office tallies of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and now, Wonder Woman.
If the Patty Jenkins directed film continues its hot streak at the box office, it will pace ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and could become this summer’s top grosser domestically, although Spider-Man: Homecoming will try mighty hard to get that title as well.
As it stands currently, when Wonder Woman passes Deadpool, it will become the highest-grossing film domestically not released by Walt Disney or Universal since Lionsgate released The Hunger Games: Catching Fire back in 2013.
Not too shabby for a film they estimated would only make around $65 million in its opening weekend in theaters.
Be sure to catch Wonder Woman in theaters now! And if you’ve already had the pleasure of seeing it and can’t wait for your next dose of Diana, Princess of Themyscira, you can catch her on the big screen again on November 17 in Justice League.
