A few weeks ago, early estimates said that Wonder Woman would make around $65 million in its first opening weekend. Well, after the glowing reviews that were released earlier this week, that number has gone way up!
The Hollywood Reporter says that Wonder Woman is now tracking for a $95 million or more box office debut in North America.
Surprisingly, Warner Bros. is downplaying that number and is expecting just $65-$70 million. Perhaps that’s so they can say Wonder Woman exceeded their expectations, because I believe closer to $100 million is a more accurate estimate based on all the positive buzz.
Wonder Woman opens in select theaters tonight, and everywhere tomorrow, June 2nd.
