    The weekend actuals are in and Wonder Woman was right on the money with 10.16 million (-35%). What a beautiful run.

    The obligatory legs gif :D :D

    It's only a couple hundred thousand. What difference does it really make. It's still at $745mil. I think it can claw it's way to $800m, if only so I can be right for this poll up top. ;)

    It's a much lower drop than anyone would have expected for this weekend, and basically in line with what we've seen previously.

    So, yes, it can get there, but it will still be interesting to follow in the next few weeks. I think it's going to get there, but the question will be whether it crosses 400M fairly easily or needs to creep over the line around Labor Day.

    It's still possible that it could drop harder in the next few weeks, but it doesn't really seem likely, after what we've seen recently.

    I think that's a different legs gif to the normal one we have. But it's entirely fitting for this thread.

    It's going to hang around cinemas like a bad smell and keep making more.

    Weekend actual was $9.8 million, so just a skosh below yesterday's projections. $368,473,296 domestic total now

    Japan will rake in 100-200M for a possible grand total of...

    ONE BILLION DOLLARS

    Highest worldwide DCEU film confirmed. :sly:

    I think Spider-Man: Homecoming was the biggest hurdle to cross. If SM:H didn't affect the box office, I don't think War for the Planet of the Apes or Dunkirk will either, other than maybe losing some more theaters.
    I think at this point in time people are going to see Wonder Woman, not a comic book movie or an action movie. So what else is playing is irrelevant at this point in time.

    Did he really just say: "Now that’s no guarantee, as right now we seem to be looking at a $390m domestic total."

    That's ridiculous. Even if it gets a 6th weekend multiplier worse than any MCU or DCEU movie except for BvS, it would make more than $390M. Not sure why he's expecting one of the the leggiest superhero movies of all time to suddenly become one of the most frontloaded ones after this weekend.

    Here's the full quote

    He said there's no guarantee to top IM3 and SM, as it's looking at 390M, if you mean WW is making way more than 390M, then ya he's low-balling it so he can report the good news in a couple of weeks lol.

    The fact he's even bringing up IM3 shows he's low-balling WW by saying 390M =P

    It looks like Spider-Man actually had a pretty noticeable effect on Wonder Woman this weekend.

    100M in China is extremely unlikely. It made about $45,000 there this weekend(and it actually hasn't passed $90M in China, not sure where he got that one from), and I don't think a 222x multiplier is happening :p
    Yes, he said "it's looking at 390M", so he's saying $390M is currently the most likely final total. But that's obviously not true lol

    Lol you're right I checked the score - WW as of today at $607.242M RMB=89.278M USD, crawling towards 90M

    Scott just likes to move goal posts :cwink:

    To be fair the likes of the Merc and Guardians should be proud to even be in the same ballpark. If they had both turned out to be forgettable movies with nonexistent box offices it would only have been as surprising as how well they actually did.

    Not really. I predicted last week Wonder Woman would make around $9 million this weekend, based on each weekend Wonder Woman's week-end box office drops around 35%. And this weekend Wonder Woman had
    a 37.5% drop as compared to the 36.9% last weekend. And Wonder Woman made $9.8 million this weekend. Actually more than I predicted. So where is the noticeable effect?

    I explained it in this post(keep in mind that "last weekend" means 2 weekends ago(before July 4th) in this post):
    Also, it looks like Gitesh saw this coming before the holiday weekend:

    So? Every movie loses theaters pretty much every week in its run at this stage. Losing theaters is already accounted for when comparing to other movies since they all lost theaters every week as well. Losing a few theaters won't suddenly make it end up below $390M.

    And why are you mentioning Dunkirk specifically?
