Wonder Woman has exceeded all expectations with its box office performance. Much of its success financially can be credited to the enthusiastic word-of-mouth from critics and audiences alike, and because of that the film has now surpassed the $300 million mark domestically.
With that number under its belt, Wonder Woman has already surpassed Man of Steel and is poised to leap above two more films in the DC Extended Universe: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. As of right now, Wonder Woman has grossed an estimated $318 million domestically.
In this coming week should speed right past Suicide Squad’s $325 million and then knock Batman v Superman’s $330 million out of its spot as the highest-grossing DCEU film thus far. At this point, it’s only just a matter of time. Already, Wonder Woman has made Patty Jenkins the highest-grossing female director, the title having belonged to Mamma Mia director Phyllida Lloyd before.
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.
