After its premiere in the United States, it seems that Wonder Woman 1984 achieved the best premiere during this pandemic in North American cinemas.
The coronavirus not only affected different productions, but also economically several industries or companies. Of course, the cinema was no exception. Despite the current situation, many films were released on the big screen and others opted for streaming. However, Wonder Woman 1984 was released simultaneously in both options and apparently, it achieved a new record.
The Christmas season was one of the best for the box office. And although this year there were no great expectations regarding earnings, it seems that Wonder Woman 1984 achieved what would seem unimaginable within the situation that is currently experienced worldwide. According to information from The Hollywood Reporter, the movie starring Gal Gadot made around USD $ 16.7 million only at the national level, that is, in the United States. Which names it, so far, the best opening weekend amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The truth is that it is one of the lowest numbers that was achieved at the box office during Christmas time. But given the current situation, even less was expected. In the United States, the film managed to open in 2,150 American theaters at Christmas, taking into account that several theaters in Los Angeles closed again. Worldwide, its collection so far was USD $ 85 million. In this way, the film got very good comments as expected, since since the premiere of Wonder Woman it has been one of the best receptions in the DC Cinematic Universe.
HBO Max showed a significant number of views of the 1984 Wonder Woman movie. More than triple the total number of viewing hours was reported on Friday compared to last month. Warner Media’s Andy Forsell confirmed the following:
“Wonder Woman 1984 broke records and exceeded our expectations on all of our key viewer and subscriber metrics in its first 24 hours on the server, and both the interest and momentum we’re seeing indicate that this will likely continue well beyond the weekend. ”.
