‘Wonder Woman’ passes ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ will overtake ‘Iron Man 3’ for Top 5 spot

Step aside, Tony Stark — just as we predicted, Wonder Woman will land in the Top 5 highest-earning superhero movies of all time at the domestic box office. And it’ll go down over the holiday weekend, passing Iron Man 3 and settling in behind The Dark Knight Rises, probably sometime mid-Monday.

Wonder Woman had earned $408.939 million in North America as of Sunday, according to estimates from comScore. That put Diana Prince short of Iron Man 3 by a paltry $75,000 — a figure Wonder Woman will easily eclipse on Labor Day, and possibly before.

There’s no way Wonder Woman can get up to No. 4 The Dark Knight Rises ($448 million), what with the home video release coming in mid-September. But a Top 5 finish is still quite a feat, considering that Wonder Woman opened at $103 million, while the four films above it all opened at $160 million or higher.

Wonder Woman had unheard-of staying power

Translation: Wonder Woman had unheard-of staying power, dropping an average of 33% week over week through its 13-plus weeks of release. Also as we predicted, Warner Bros. staged a special engagement in IMAX to boost earnings in Week 13, taking advantage of the lack of August offerings by putting Wonder Woman in 2,210 theaters.

It isn’t official-official yet, but as of Monday, your new superhero Top 5 will look something like this:

  1. Marvel’s The Avengers: $623.3 million
  2. The Dark Knight: $534.8 million
  3. Avengers: Age of Ultron: $459 million
  4. The Dark Knight Rises: $448.1 million
  5. Wonder Woman: $409+ million

Interesting side-note: Wonder Woman‘s entry into that group shifts the balance of top 5 all-time domestic superhero films from Marvel to DC, which now has three of those spots (though Marvel still has 7 of the top 10, if you count Spidey films).

But that imbalance could be in jeopardy, too — with Gal Gadot’s take on Wonder Woman as popular as she is, Justice League right around the corner, and a Wonder Woman sequel coming before you know it, the DCEU may have finally found its stride.

Doom Patrol Extended Trailer | DC Universe

Published

on

DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

Based on DC characters originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani #DCUDOOMPATROL premieres February 15.

So many people get hurt in the bloody ‘Punisher’ Season 2 Trailer

Published

on

“Frank Castle is back for another round of morally gray murder in Season 2 of Netflix’s The Punisher, and based on the above trailer, not much has changed.

Castle, played by Jon Bernthal, is loaded up with a whole bunch of guns and guilt in the trailer as he goes after a gang of masked villains the only way he knows how: bullets and a low, gruff voice.

“I’m not the one who dies, kid,” he grumbles, “I’m the one who does the killing.” It’s reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s greatest ’80s action movies.

The Punisher Season 2 bursts onto Netflix on Jan. 18.”
