Early tracking suggests that Wonder Woman is set to disappoint in its opening weekend at the box office.
According to Deadline, projections are at an estimated $65 million-plus for its debut in the US. Now although that may not seem bad, putting it on a par with Thor and Captain America: First Avenger’s opening figures. Interest in superhero movies has elevated so much in recent years, that box office takings have rapidly increased.
There have been 22 superhero movies from DC and Marvel in the last 5 years and if the Wonder Woman projections are right, it will put the film in a poor 18th place when ordered by opening profit. See the rankings below via Box Office Mojo:
It will also be DC’s worst performing superhero since Green Lantern. Still, box office projections are not always correct and may change for the good, if the reviews are strong.
Wonder Woman hits screens on June 2nd. Watch its trailer below in the meantime:
