‘Wonder Woman 1984’ box office collection Day 3: Gal Gadot starrer records good first weekend at Indian and global markets – Eagles Vine

Despite premiering simultaneously by streaming service, ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ that brought together Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins for the second time, has managed the best box office debuts in the domestic and global markets amidst the pandemic crisis.

According to reports on BoxofficeIndia.com, the film earned an estimated Rs 8 crore nett over the extended holiday weekend. Keeping in mind that the film was also released on OTT platforms, it recorded a good turnout at theatres as well.

Meanwhile, on the international front, the film recorded an estimated collection of $16.7 million over the Christmas weekend in the USA. The film grossed an additional $19.4 million in international markets where it began playing a week earlier.

The global total earned by the film stands at $85 million to date.

Although the collections are far lower than the usual, production house, Warner Bros. nevertheless seized on the returns for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ as the best as could be expected, given the circumstances.

The studio on Sunday announced that it would fast-track a third ‘Wonder Woman’ film, with Jenkins and Gadot returning.

“Wonder Woman 1984 broke records and exceeded our expectations across all of our key viewing and subscriber metrics in its first 24 hours on the service, and the interest and momentum we’re seeing indicates this will likely continue well beyond the weekend,” said Andy Forssell, executive vice president and general manager for WarnerMedia’s direct-to-consumer operations.

“During these very difficult times, it was nice to give families the option of enjoying this uplifting film at home, where theatre viewing wasn’t an option.”
