Hear her roar
Wonder Woman had a great opening weekend....
In her maiden outing, Warner Bros’ Wonder Woman dominated the international box office — and came in higher than estimated on Sunday. The well-reviewed DC warrior cuffed a final $125M on 34,775 screens in 55 markets this weekend – up from yesterday’s estimate of $122.5M on 34,300. And that’s without such major hubs as France, Germany and more.
In overall terms overseas, the start outperformed such key (and male-led) superhero comps as Thor 1 and 2, Iron Man 1 and 2, Guardians Of The Galaxy 1 and 2, Doctor Strange, Captain America 1 and 2, Ant-Man and Man Of Steel — and is now on par with Deadpool.
The global cume on the Patty Jenkins-helmed DC pic is $228.1M.
Domestically there was clearly extra girl power behind the $103.1M opening, yet internationally the sentiment is that to have reached the numbers Wonder Woman ascended to, the film is appealing to all audiences.
That's awesome news and I hope that it just keeps doing better. It's really a great film and one of the few Superhero movies that I think women will enjoy as much as men, if not more.
Thank Hera for Patty Jenkins directing this film and not allowing Warner Bros. to make another dark/angry DC movie.
This one has hope and joy, which is a very welcome change.
