Warner Bros.’ DC blockbuster Wonder Woman has reached another milestone at the box office this weekend, with the film taking its global haul to a whopping $800 million.
The Patty Jenkins-directed superhero movie has grossed $404 million domestically, making it the highest-grossing DCEU release in the U.S., and Warner Bros.’ third biggest film ever behind The Dark Knight ($533.3 million) and The Dark Knight Rises ($448.1 million).
Worldwide, Wonder Woman trails the box office total of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($873.3 million), and is the fifth highest grossing movie of the year so far after Beauty and the Beast ($1.263 billion), The Fate of the Furious ($1.239 billion), Despicable Me 3 ($948.4 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($862.3 million).
Gal Gadot will be reprising the role of the Amazon Princess this November for Justice League, while Wonder Woman 2 is set to hit cinemas in 2019.
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.
