“Wonder Woman” Box-Office Estimates Jump

Prerelease tracking figures have shown that Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” is looking to score a bigger domestic debut than first anticipated, helped in part by stellar reviews.

Warners remains steadfast in their studio estimates of a $65-70 million opening weekend, but THR says independent figures are estimating a North American debut of $95 million or more, along with over $100 million internationally.

The $150 million-budget movie opened to $6.3 million in a handful of Asian markets on Tuesday and Wednesday, excluding China, and scored among the best starts ever for a Warner Bros. release.

DreamWorks Animation’s “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” also opens this weekend and is tracking to score $25 million, a very good amount for a $38 million budget feature.
