It’s official: Wonder Woman is a smash hit at the box office.
According to Variety, the film crossed the projected $100 million-mark at the domestic box office, grossing a whopping $100.5 million stateside from 4,165 locations.
Wonder Woman has officially made more than fellow superhero fare Iron Man ($98.6 million), Doctor Strange ($85 million) and Thor ($65.7 million) in their respective opening weekends. However, the film fell short of records held by Deadpool ($132 million) and Man of Steel ($116.6 million).
As predicted, Patty Jenkins has now been crowned with the greatest domestic opening for a female director, ever, beating out Fifty Shades of Grey’s Sam Taylor-Johnson ($85.1 million).
Regardless of Wonder Woman’s success, it’s accumulated less than previous DCEU outings Batman v Superman ($166 million) and Suicide Squad ($134 million) in their respective opening weekends. However, those films fared much worse critically — suggesting Wonder Woman may have better staying power at the box office.
Coming in second place this weekend was 20th Century Fox’s Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. The film raked in a modest $23.5 million from 3,434 locations. Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales followed in third with $22 million from 4,276 locations, while the studio’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 took the fourth place spot with an additional $10 million from North American theaters; that brings the film’s total domestic gross to $350 million, earned over the course of five weekends. Rounding out the top five, Baywatch earned a measly $8.5 million from 3,647 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.
