Wonder Woman box office has passed $400 million domestically
The Wonder Woman box office has hit another milestone. The film has officially beaten all the other summer blockbusters of 2017 so far with $400 million with its domestic total as of Tuesday, August 8. According to the announcement made by Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, the film has now hit $794 million worldwide.
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.
Kroll stated, “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.”
Gal Gadot stars in the title role of Wonder Woman, an epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (Monster, AMC’s The Killing), marking the DC Super Hero’s first-ever standalone feature film.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, raised on a sheltered island paradise and trained to be an unconquerable warrior. But when an American pilot crashes off 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 men in the war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Saïd Taghmaoui and Eugene Brave Rock.
Patty Jenkins directed the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg and Jason Fuchs, based on characters from DC. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston.
