Wonder Woman breaks box office record with impressive debut

Share

It would be interesting to see if the Wonder Woman sequel would tie loose ends from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, revealing what happened to the superheroine through her inactive years or will Jenkins take it off from the conclusion of Justice League, the way Aquaman is being dealt.

The first instalment of the latest DC Extended Universe franchise only hit cinema screens last week, but director Patty Jenkins already knows exactly what's going to happen in the sequel, including where in the world she'd like the story to be set.

To recap, Zack Snyder recently said Wonder Woman 2 is in development, but DC head Geoff Johns wouldn't confirm or deny it.

While Wonder Woman did not quite reach the $242m total reached by Fifty Shades of Grey at the global box office, it nevertheless performed well in worldwide markets.

Alongside Gadot's title character and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, the film's cast also includes Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Danny Huston, Ewan Bremner and former The Office actress Lucy Davis. "I'm sure we wouldn't have made the same choice", says Jenkins. Wonder Woman will kill the game in that film as well.

"The story will take place in the USA, which I think is right", Jenkins tells EW.

Meanwhile, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales suffered a significant drop of over 65 percent in its second week. The animated release, in which a pair of students make their principal think he's a superhero by hypnotizing him, opened with $23.5 million. It landed in third place, behind Fox's "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie".

The studio on Monday said the tickets sold on Sunday turned out to be even higher than it estimated over the weekend.

The fifth installment of the Pirates franchise has earned United States dollars 386.6 million to date internationally for a global total combined with North America of USD 501.2 million.
