This past Thursday, Wonder Woman raked in a whopping $11 million domestically, setting a new preview night record for a film helmed by a female. And as impressive as that is, its $14.4 million Tuesday haul places the Amazon Princess in the number two spot for best Tuesday outings in June for a live-action film, second only to 2014’s Jurassic World ($24.3 million).
This latest milestone comes hot on the heels of news that Wonder Woman is expected to beat out Universal’s The Mummy at the box office this weekend, with the former projected to earn up to another $50 million and the latter a “mere” $35 million. If that’s the case, this means that Wonder Woman is destined a far better fate than any of its DCEU precursors and will see less than a 50% drop from its opening weekend, in which the film surpassed the projected $100 million-mark at the domestic box office, grossing an astounding $100.5 million stateside from 4,165 locations.
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.
