As we move deeper into the summer movie season, “Wonder Woman’’ remains the box-office pacesetter.
The DC Comics feature’s appeal continues to hold up, pulling in an estimated $15.57 million for the week ending July 2, good for fourth place among recent releases, according to Box Office Mojo.
The film, starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot in the title role, has rolled up $350.5 million in domestic business after five weeks in release. It is the third-biggest movie this year, behind “Beauty and the Beast” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Internationally, the film tacked on another $13.6 million, and the movie has grossed $360 million, pushing it over $700 million thus far. Box Office Mojo said “Wonder Woman” is the third-largest domestic release among all DC Comics-based features.
“Wonder Woman” is already the highest-grossing live-action movie by a female director, who was Patty Jenkins.
Universal’s Dark Universe is getting darker as blockbuster hopeful “The Mummy” continues to lag behind “Wonder Woman.” The critically panned movie has pulled in $75.4 million domestically thus far, after a debut of $31.7 million on June 9. “The Mummy” has grossed $275.2 million internationally.
