‘Wonder Woman’ Scores Second-Best Monday For Superhero Film In June

'Wonder Woman' earned a total of $11.7 million at the domestic office on Monday, the second-best gross for a superhero film on Monday in June.

Wonder Woman opened to critical acclaim and record breaking office success that continued beyond the films momentous opening weekend gross. Deadline reports that Wonder Woman earned $11.7 million at the domestic box office on Monday, earning the title of second-best gross for a superhero film in June, behind only Man of Steel.

In addition to bringing the films total domestic gross to $115 million, Wonder Woman‘s Monday earnings gave the film the fourth-best Monday among all live-action feature films, behind only Jurassic World, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Man of Steel ($12.6M).

Wonder Woman is estimated to drop as little as 50% heading into the next weekend, meaning the film could retain the top spot at the box office.

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.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Wonder Woman will be released in theaters on June 2, 2017.
