Entering the New Year’s Day weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures DC superhero movie Wonder Woman 1984 has reportedly topped $100 million at the worldwide box office, the studio disclosed on New Years Eve. WW84 generated $16.7 million on its opening Christmas Day weekend debut in the U.S. — the same day WarnerMedia made the movie available on the HBO Max streaming video platform.
The sequel to the 2017 Wonder Woman generated $85 million globally through Dec. 27, including $23.9 million in revenue in China, where the movie starring Gal Gadot in the title role first opened.
“Congratulations to Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot, Chuck Roven and the entire cast and crew who made Wonder Woman 1984, allowing fans and film lovers to return to the thrilling experience of being at the movies,” Jeff Goldstein, president of Warner Bros. Distribution, and Andrew Cripps, president of International Distribution, said in a joint statement.
Earlier this week, Warner announced it had fast-tracked development on the third installment of the Wonder Woman franchise to be written by Patty Jenkins, who is again attached to direct the third installment.
