“Wonder Woman” has raked in $400 million at the domestic box office, bringing the film’s worldwide take to more than $794 million, Warner Bros. Pictures announced Tuesday.
Domestically, “Wonder Woman” is the third-highest grossing Warner Bros. film ever and only its third to ever surpass $400 million. The studio’s other two films to reach that milestone were “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” according to Sue Kroll, Warner Bros.’ president of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, who noted that all three titles are from the studio’s DC Division.
“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,” Kroll said. “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.”
Gadot stars as sheltered Amazonian princess Diana-turned-Wonder Woman, who discovers her full powers and true destiny when she leaves her island paradise to fight alongside men in a war to end all wars. The cast also includes Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis and Connie Nielsen.
