'Wonder Woman' Crushes The Box Office On Opening Weekend

This week brought three major stories at the box office but none bigger than the impressive opening weekend of Wonder Woman. The film opened up with over $223 million and has been receiving rave reviews from moviegoers.

"Using her super powers to create powerful box office numbers around the world, Warner Bros.' 'Wonder Woman' enjoys a fantastic $223 million global debut that was bigger than even the most generous projections and puts the DC Comics brand on a newly reinvigorated path to critical and box office success," said comScore's Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian.

"Notably, Disney's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' crosses the $500 million mark worldwide this weekend while Universal's 'The Fate of the Furious' is on track to raise its international total to $1.004 Billion."
