It may have lost top spot in the U.S. to Disney-Pixar’s Cars 3, but Warner Bros.’ DC blockbuster Wonder Woman continues to impress at the box office, having pushed its worldwide haul to $571.8 million worldwide.
Wonder Woman dropped just 30% domestically this weekend, grossing $40.8 million and pushing its North American cume to $274.6 million. The film has added a further $297.2 million internationally, and will soon overtake 2008’s Mamma Mia ($609.8 million) to become the highest-grossing movie from a female director.
In terms of the DCEU, Wonder Woman currently trails Man of Steel ($668.0 million), and while it will certainly face some stiff competition this coming week from Transformers: The Last Knight, it’s still possible that the Amazon Princess’ solo debut could overtake the Superman reboot.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
