After a second weekend on top, Wonder Woman has crossed $200 million at the domestic box office.
The Amazing Amazon’s first solo film took the top spot again in its second weekend, beating out Universal Pictures’ The Mummy, which is set to kick-start its Dark Universe franchise. Dipping only 45% in its second weekend, Wonder Woman managed to secure another $57.2 million, while The Mummy only managed to earn $32.2 million.
For a film that was once expected to only open to $65 million domestically, Wonder Woman continues to beat out expectations. With $57.2 million from this weekend, the film has crossed $200 million domestically in only two weeks, and is set to out-earn the likes of Man of Steel, Suicide Squad, and Batman v Superman domestically, with $350 million domestically now a possibility.
Internationally, the film has also surpassed $200 million at the box office, securing another $58.1 million in its second weekend, bringing the film’s international total to $230.2 million. That makes for an impressive $430 million at the worldwide box office so far.
While a sequel has yet to be officially announced, with numbers like these, it’s only a matter of time before DC Films and Warner Bros. formally announce a sequel — hopefully with director Patty Jenkins back behind the camera.
As for The Mummy, it did manage to open higher than Dracula Untold, a film that was originally meant to kick off Universal’s Dark Universe franchise, but was later retconned from existing within the planned cinematic universe. Unfortunately, a $32.2 million opening weekend for a film with a reported $125 million budget is less than ideal, especially when trying to launch a cinematic universe to rival that of Marvel’s own Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, while the film opened to low numbers stateside, the international box office could go on to save the film as Tom Cruise still sells films abroad.
In theaters now, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
