The female-centric tentpole soared to $11 million in previews as it began rolling out Thursday night in North American theaters before opening everywhere on Friday, when it will be in 4,165 locations. The audience was evenly split in terms of males and females, according to comScore. Usually, a superhero tentpole skews male.
Starring Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman should lasso $95 million or more in its domestic debut, thanks to pent-up demand for a satisfying summer tentpole and rapturous reviews. And don't be surprised if it climbs higher than $100 million.
Overseas, Wonder Woman is opening in almost every major market this weekend, including China.
