Conservative estimations be damned.
Wonder Woman has officially conquered the domestic box office this weekend. The Patty Jenkins DC Film has defied expectations and has concluded its opening weekend with a massive $100.5-Million from 4,165 North American theatrical locations.
Initially, Warner Bros. was predicting an opening weekend somewhere between $65-$70-Million. However, stellar reviews coupled with positive word of mouth from critics and fans alike rocketed the latest DC Films chapter to stardom and earned Patty Jenkins the largest box office opening for a female director.
Compared with other superhero movies, Wonder Woman has earned a larger domestic opening than Iron Man (98.6-Million), Doctor Strange ($85-Million) and Thor ($65.7-Million).
Wonder Woman currently enjoys a 94% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The film marks the first time that Wonder Woman has gotten her own big-screen movie.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis, Wonder Woman arrives in theatres now.
