Patty Jenkins’ ‘Wonder Woman’ Beat An Impressive Record Held By ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’
June 6, 2017 - Fifty Shades of Grey
Prior to release, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman was tormented by rumors about a state of production. Fans were prepared for it to be nonetheless another vicious disaster for a DC Extended Universe.
Fortunately, #WonderWoman gave some-more than a spark of wish to comic book film fans. It’s not usually a initial complicated female-led superhero movie, it also became a initial dear film set in a often-troubled DCEU, reaching considerable milestones and violation annals in a initial weekend during a box office.
Wonder Woman Beat ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’s Record
Wonder Woman was initial estimated to lift in a vicious $65 million. A brief while later, a volume went adult to $75. Then, small days before release, estimates increasing to $90 million. As it turns out, those predictions were all wrong.
Wonder Woman had a whopping $103.3 million opening weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. That means a latest #DCEU installment simply kick Sam Taylor-Johnson’s #FiftyShadesOfGrey’s $85.1 million opening weekend.
Why is that so important? That feat crowns Wonder Woman as a highest-grossing opening weekend for a female-directed film in history.
Furthermore, #PattyJenkins’ superhero try is a sixth-highest Jun opening weekend, and a second biggest for Warner Bros. Ironically enough, a initial place is hold by a associate DCEU installment, #ManOfSteel.
How Does It Compare To Other Super Heroic Opening Weekends?
WW‘s opening weekend was considerable and it’s a good pointer for Warner Bros., though it wasn’t a top we’ve seen from a comic book movie. It kick Doctor Strange ($85 million), Ant-Man ($57.2 million) Captain America: The First Avenger ($65 million) and Iron Man ($98.6 million). However, it falls brief compared to Man of Steel ($116.6 million), Deadpool (132.4 million) and Spider-Man (114.8 million).
That doesn’t take any of a gleam off Wonder Woman‘s success. In fact, Diana Prince’s strange success will substantially continue to get even some-more impressive. #BatmanVSuperman and #SuicideSquad –– while not box bureau disasters –– were incompetent to accommodate expectations in terms of earnings, and a controversial vicious accepting had a lot to do with it.
Wonder Woman has had an strenuous certain accepting from both fans and critics. To give we an instance of how good that’s doing, it now binds an 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Good word of mouth means a lot for films, so a Amazonian Princess has a prolonged approach to go during a box office.
Wonder Woman is one of my favorite superhero movies. It’s a ideal mix of good behaving (especially from #GalGadot and #ChrisPine), heart, action, and drama. Patty Jenkins and Warner Bros. delivered an extraordinary film, so I’m blissful it’s doing so good and violation all kinds of records.
As we’ve famous for a while, the studio and a executive are already in talks for a sequel. And after this implausible success, it’s protected to contend Diana will get a second solo tour in a not-too-distant future. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman is now in theaters.
