I'm almost certain it will open to less than MoS, but I'm hoping for a solid RT score as well as good word of mouth to build the film through its first two weeks.

Make no mistake, both JL and WW need to hit it big for the DCEU. If either one fails, it's a huge blow to the confidence in this universe moving forward.

I swear, it's like people are just not willing to actually wait for the next DCEU film to come out and see if WB learned anything or changed their approach at all. Even the attempts to make sure they're NOT making mistakes are spun into "The sky is falling!"
No amount of internet gawking will prevent 1) WB from getting their act together 2) A good movie from attracting an audience.

This here. Make a great movie, and all will be forgiven. Make a good movie and people will talk about whether the next one will be like the good movie or all the others.

I really don't think it's going to be good. Looks and feels more like Diana: Warrior Princess than WONDER WOMAN.

I just hope that when people inevitably start trashing it, it doesn't re-ignite the 'sexism' argument.

I am getting sort of a '90s Robert Tapert style TV show feeling from this incarnation of Wonder Woman. Right down to the costume. But then I did like the TV show, so maybe I will like this.

MOS opened at about 117mill and if one counts the walmart pre-sale tickets then the film opened at 132 million so if you'll be disappointed at the possibility of WW opening below that then you need a reality check.
If WW opens at anywhere near the 100 mill then it's a big victory for WB.

I'm more of a DC fan than Marvel and as much as I'd like for the DCEU to succeed I don't think Wonder Woman will make even half of what BvS did.

Just my personal opinion I don't care what anybody else matters but I don't care and never liked WW or any period film that takes place during WWII.

So a note for WB, the Justice League better impress the hell out of me.
