- by admin
Warner Bros./DreamWorks Animation’s Wonder Woman (the same studio behind The LEGO Movie) opened to a strong $50 million on Tuesday, making it the third-highest opening weekend for a film in its history.
The pic has earned an A CinemaScore from audiences and critics, and is expected to do well in limited release in its native country, China, where it will play on April 9.
The movie opened on March 25 in China, and earned $1.4 million on Wednesday.
The picture, which is being co-financed by China Film Group and Warner Bros., is the first Warner Bros/Disney film to reach the $50-million mark in China.
Warner Bros.’ domestic B-list debut is a little higher, but it has earned $2.8 million, putting it in second place.
“Wonder Woman” is also the only Warner Bros.-Pixary film to earn the highest opening weekend in its domestic B/G for 2018.
The Warner Bros Pictures-Disney partnership has a history of doing well overseas, but this is the most domestic-targeted release of the year.
“The Wonder Woman,” which stars Gal Gadot as the Amazonian warrior, has earned more than $1 billion worldwide.
“In the heart of the war-torn world of the fictional city of Themyscira, Wonder Woman’s hero journey is set against a backdrop of an ancient prophecy: the arrival of a new hero, a hero of her own,” says Jeff Goldstein, EVP, Domestic Distribution at Warner Bros and EVP of Domestic Distribution for Disney.
“Warner Bros. is excited to expand its international reach and expand its worldwide audience, which will help to drive Wonder Woman forward into the 2020s.”
“Wonder Women” is playing in more than 300 countries.
The film has been adapted from DC Comics characters Diana Prince and Diana Prince: Princess of Themisyscira.
Warner Brothers will release Wonder Woman on April 2.
Wonder Woman opens worldwide on April 5.
The Wonder Woman trailer will debut at the CinemaCon International in Las Vegas on Wednesday, June 3.
