UPI News Service, 08/10/2017
"Wonder Woman" has earned more than $400 million at the North American box office as of this week.
Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot as the titular super-heroine, the film has taken in a worldwide total of more than $794 million to date.
The domestic milestone announcement was made Tuesday by Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and distribution for Warner Bros. Pictures.
"When 'Wonder Woman' opened to such a terrific number in June, we thought, 'This is truly a moment' -- for the film, for our industry, for director Patty Jenkins and, of course, for Gal Gadot," Kroll said in a statement.
"Now, more than two months later, Wonder Woman has become a phenomenon, the must-see movie of the summer. Audiences have embraced this character and her story in such a spectacular fashion, and we couldn't be happier for everyone involved in bringing this incredible property to life and to cinemas across the country."
