Wonder Woman Just Keeps Making Money

Jul 03, 2017

There's no stopping Wonder Woman.

After smashing box office records over the last month, the action film about Diana of Themyscira surpassed $700 million in worldwide grosses this weekend — and it hasn't opened in Japan yet. It has earned $707.9 million worldwide.

Last week, the film, directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, became the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman.

Domestically, the film earned $15.575 million in its fifth weekend. That's an impressive total, as it was challenged by new releases like Baby Driver and Despicable Me 3 over the holiday weekend.

And the $346.1 million the film has earned domestically in 31 days surpasses those earned by massive hits over the same respective time frame. It out-earned films like Spider-Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy and Zootopia, according to Forbes.

In the DC comics movie universe, Wonder Woman is a stand-out. The movie has passed all other recent DC films in terms of domestic sales, including Suicide Squad, Batman v Superman, and Man of Steel.

While it has yet to be officially announced, Jenkins has said Wonder Woman may be getting a sequel.
