She came at a billionaire playboy philanthropist and did not miss.
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:
- Marvel’s The Avengers: $623.3 million
- The Dark Knight: $534.8 million
- Avengers: Age of Ultron: $459 million
- The Dark Knight Rises: $448.1 million
- 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.
Jason Momoa is getting in shape for Justice League
Here, Jason Momoa is dry. Scroll down for the wet.
While it stands to reason that anyone playing a hero called Aquaman would have to look good wet, I’d like to file a complaint with whoever got Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, quite this wet for the cover of Entertainment Weekly.
Look, I know this “photographer” was just doing their “job” but what gave them the right to shoot an image of this absolutely enormous, bearded, heavily tattooed man with the body of a god and the hair of a WWE wrestler and put it on the cover of a magazine?
Look at how intensely he’s staring into the camera/the viewer’s immortal soul. Is it frightening? Yes. Am I ready to charter a boat in search of my buff aquatic king? Also yes!
Pause for a minute and think about what Jason Momoa must smell like in this picture. Think about it, manifest it, and breathe deeply through your nose. Congratulations.
But that’s not all! the Barnes and Noble version of Entertainment Weekly also included looks at Momoa’s Aquaman costars Nicole Kidman and Amber Heard, and smack between those two high-key attractive women is Momoa again, blonder this time, looking like he’s going to either kill someone or…yeah that’s just a “kill someone” look.
In the article, Aquaman executive producer Peter Safran had this to say about Momoa’s performance as a thicc amphibious man-hunk:
“Rarely has a superhero character been married to the real-life actor as much as Aquaman and Jason Momoa. “He’s authentically from two worlds, he’s this real physical specimen, he’s got this humor which he’s never been allowed to play before — in every regard he is Aquaman.”
A real physical specimen indeed.
A new tweet confirms that Chris Pine is back for ‘Wonder Woman 2’
If you saw Wonder Woman in 2017, you may recall one key detail about Steve Trevor: HE DIED. Or so we thought?? In a devastating sequence during the final battle, Steve bid Diana goodbye, gave her his family heirloom, and flew straight to his death.
OR SO WE THOUGHT.
Gal Gadot also shared an early still from the movie which shows Diana contemplating a series of cryptic television screens.
We learned early in June that the Wonder Woman sequel will likely be set in 1984, and Jenkins’ tweet suggests Wonder Woman 1984 may even be….”
We may have a clue about when ‘Wonder Woman 2’ takes place
Diana puts her game face on in Wonder Woman.
DC’s Geoff Johns may have dropped a serious hint about the Wonder Woman sequel – namely, the year it takes place.
Johns, DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer, shared a teaser on Facebook Friday morning that simply read “WW84,” which might point to seeing our hero in 1984.
Johns uploaded the image as his cover photo, where it slid largely under the radar until The Hollywood Reporter sniffed it out. Presumably, the teaser means Wonder Woman 2 will jump ahead to 1984.
We knew the sequel would move forward in time, leaving 1917 (and Steve Trevor) in the dust, but having an exact year narrows this down immensely. By 1984, Diana could run into a young Bruce Wayne or Clark Kent – or almost anyone else in the DCEU, hero or villain. She could also wear a lot of pastels.
Wonder Woman 2 will release Nov. 1, 2019.
