Wonder Woman has officially soared past the $300 million mark at the domestic box office. The Patty Jenkins-directed film made an additional $7.3 million at the Friday box office and will probably gross $319.4 million by tomorrow. If the film makes the expected $26.17 million, then Wonder Woman will become the record-holder for best fourth-weekend gross for Warner Bros. and will come in ahead of The Dark Knight.
Patty Jenkins has been pretty open about where she’d like the sequel to be set and other ideas, so hopefully we’ll be hearing more news soon about what the story for Wonder Woman 2 will be.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
The film stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick Morgan, Elena Anaya as Doctor Maru, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer and Eugene Brave Rock as the Chief.
Wonder Woman is currently playing in theaters.
