‘Wonder Woman’ Becomes Warner Bros. Third-Biggest Release of All Time in North America
Another day, another milestone for Wonder Woman. The Patty Jenkins directed flick has been racking up the accolades since it was released in North America back on June 2, including top-grossing live-action film directed by a woman and now it’s become one of Warner Bros. best-earning films.
The movie is still making significant profits at the box office, taking in roughly $6.9 million this past weekend to propel it past fellow Warner Bros. property, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.
In regards to Wonder Woman‘s box office numbers overseas, Warner Bros. distribution chief, Jess Goldstein said, “Historically, an origin superhero film does big business domestically.” Regardless, the film has still been able to make $384.2 million across the pond, bringing its worldwide total to roughly $765 million.
Last week we learned that Wonder Woman has the best box office hold of any superhero film in the last 15 years and its on its way to becoming this summer’s highest-grossing property; the spot currently being held by the Marvel Studios film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (which has raked in $386.6 million domestically to-date).
It’s estimated that Wonder Woman will pull in $390 million in domestic box office revenue, but the number could be higher depending on the hold it continues to have at theaters in the coming weeks.
Wonder Woman is screening in theaters now! And for those of you who want more Diana Prince, be sure to catch her on screen once again on November 17 in Justice League.
