Wonder Woman Box Office Heads Past $400 Million

“Wonder Woman” reigns supreme in theaters across North America, with today’s tickets bringing the box office to a total of $400 million and counting—the most for any film in this year’s highly competitive summer corridor—and taking it to a worldwide total of more than $794 million to date. The announcement was made today by Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
Kroll explained that domestically, the impressive figure makes “Wonder Woman” the third-highest grossing Warner Bros. Pictures film ever and only its third to ever surpass $400 million, putting the Amazonian princess in good company alongside “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises.” All three top properties hail from the studio’s DC division. Week after week, “Wonder Woman” continued to have some of the strongest holds ever seen for the superhero genre, and the film remained in the top 10 at the box office throughout its first nine weeks in release.
“When ‘Wonder Woman’ opened to such a terrific number in June, we thought, ‘This is truly a moment’—for the film, for our industry, for director Patty Jenkins and, of course, for Gal Gadot. Now, more than two months later, ‘Wonder Woman’ has become a phenomenon, the must-see movie of the summer. Audiences have embraced this character and her story in such a spectacular fashion, and we couldn’t be happier for everyone involved in bringing this incredible property to life and to cinemas across the country.” Kroll commented.
