‘Wonder Woman’ Debuts With a Gigantic $200 Million+ Worldwide Opening

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos

The DCEU did it. Thanks to Patty Jenkins, Warner Bros. and DC Comics have a global hit. Jenkins is having the biggest opening weekend for a female director in movie history. After shattering box office records with a historic $100 million opening at the domestic box office, Wonder Woman has now opened to $120 million+ at the international box office, bringing the film’s global opening total to just over $220 million.

Overseas, China lassoed in the fourth highest opening of all time for Warner Bros. with $38 million while Korea, Brazil and Mexico each brought in, $8.5 million, $8.4 million and $8.3 million respectively. The United Kingdom also had a strong showing, earning $7.5 million.

In addition to this, the film holds a 93% certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an audience score of an A via Cinemascore.

It’s safe to say that the film is a massive home run for DC and Warner Bros. Despite the box office totals of  Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, all three films managed to heavily divide audiences and garner mixed critical receptions. Wonder Woman represents a shift in the DCEU. The films shows that DC has learned from prior films and has earned incredible reception from critics and audiences alike and an opening weekend over-performance.
