The movie “Wonder Woman 1984” grossed about $ 36.1 million after being shown in international cinemas over the Christmas holidays.
The American film, television and music production and distribution company, Warner Bros.
AT&T Inc-owned Warner Bros said in a statement released on Sunday, December 27, that the film’s revenue from US and Canadian cinemas amounted to $ 16.7 million. This was classified as the highest premiere revenue recorded since the “Covid-19” pandemic caused cinemas to close last March, although these numbers are only a fraction of the revenues found in big-budget action movies.
The movie “Superwoman” in 2017 achieved revenues of $ 103.2 million when it premiered locally.
Warner Bros. was forced to take unusual measures by making the film available to HBO Max customers in the United States, after two-thirds of cinemas in the United States closed due to the Corona pandemic.
The company said millions had viewed the movie on the digital platform. Total viewing hours on HBO Max tripled on Friday, compared to a regular day in the previous month, according to the statement.
The company also indicated that it would accelerate the production of a third film in the “Wonder Woman” series written and directed by Patty Jenkins, and starring Gal Gadot. The company did not disclose the date the film was released.
