It’s Official: ‘Wonder Woman’ Is the Biggest Movie of the Summer in North America
Fresh off all the excitement of San Diego Comic Con and the official announcement that Wonder Woman will indeed get a sequel (Geoff Johns is already in the process of writing the script), it has also just become the biggest film of the summer domestically.
The origin story of Diana, Princess of Themyscira won the praise of fans and critics alike when it officially hit theaters on June 2, and it continues to add more and more milestones to its already impressive tally of accomplishments.
Wonder Woman is approaching its second month in theaters and despite this, it’s sill managing to pull in impressive box office numbers. In fact, this weekend, it was still part of the top 10 and made roughly $4.6 million. The film is akin to the Energizer Bunny at this point – it just keeps going.
The Patty Jenkins directed flick had stiff competition in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which opened earlier this summer and was the reigning summer box office champ with roughly $387 million. However, the DCEU film managed to surpass the James Gunn directed MCU movie and snag the title over the weekend. As it stands, Wonder Woman‘s domestic gross is $389 million to-date.
Aside from being the top summer film in North America, Wonder Woman now sits in second place overall for domestic gross at the box office behind Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.
If you haven’t been able to catch Wonder Woman, it’s screening in theaters now.
