DC Films fanfare

Wonder Woman has proved a commercial and critical success, catapulting past $700 million at the global box office, and earning a 92-percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, where it's "Certified Fresh." Its performance has already shattered the perception of the DC Extended Universe, and now the Patty Jenkins film has helped to propel the fledgling franchise past a major milestone.

According to Box Office Mojo, the four films of the DCEU -- Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman -- have now earned a cumulative $3 billion worldwide.

Grossing $350.5 million domestically since its release on June 2, Wonder Woman leads the pack in North America; with $873 million worldwide, 2016's Batman v Superman sits comfortably atop the DCEU's global throne.

Wonder Woman earned another $15.7 million over the weekend -- its fifth in U.S. theaters -- putting the film on a course to end its domestic run somewhere near $380 million, higher than expectations. It finished the holiday weekend in fourth place at the North American box office, behind Transformers: The Last Knight, Baby Driver and Despicable Me 3.
