“Wonder Woman” Tops DCEU U.S. Box-Office

In just four weeks, Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” has pushed past the twelve week haul of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and the fourteen week haul of David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad” to become the highest-grossing DC Extended Universe film domestically.

“Wonder Woman” has thus far made $330.5 million domestically, above the $330.4 million cumulative gross of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the $325 million of “Suicide Squad,” and the $291 million of “Man of Steel”.

It’s extra impressive as the opening weekend of $103 million for “Wonder Woman‘s” was 37% less than ‘Dawn’, 22% smaller than ‘Squad’ and 20% smaller than ‘Man’. However, reviews and word of mouth have been so much stronger that the film is proving to have much longer legs.

Internationally the film has taken a further $335.8 million overseas in the four week period, which is the weakest of the four. The film is expected to ultimately beat “Man of Steel” ($377M) and possibly “Suicide Squad” ($420M) overseas but likely won’t match ‘Dawn’ ($543M).
