Box office top 20: ‘Wonder Woman’ revised up to $103.3M

NEW YORK — “Wonder Woman” was even mightier than expected. Warner Bros. has revised the film’s weekend haul up to $103.3 million.

The studio on Monday said the tickets sold on Sunday turned out to be even higher than it estimated over the weekend. Warner Bros. previously had announced a $100.5 million North American estimate.

The nearly $3 million swing, Warner Bros. said, was caused by an unusually small drop in audience from Saturday to Sunday. That indicates that the well-reviewed film’s strong word of mouth is giving “Wonder Woman” more momentum than usual.

The Patty Jenkins-directed film, starring Gal Gadot, became the biggest opening for a film directed by a woman and by far the most successful female-led superhero release.

The top 20 movies at U.S. and Canadian theatres Friday through Sunday, followed by distribution studio, gross, number of theatre locations, average receipts per location, total gross and number of weeks in release, as compiled Monday by comScore:
