c. Nothing has been publicized until Sunday, December 27.
It would seem that theatre grosses on WW84 are delayed, just as its releases have been delayed several times due to the onslaught of the covid-19 pandemic. The film debuted on HBO Max and in U.S Cinemas simultaneously on Christmas. It was when Warner Bros. and WarnerMedia finally decided to break the theatrical window and open the sequel film that reunites Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins in theatres that are still open.
In Wonder Woman 1984, Diana Prince has been living quietly among mortals and maintains a low profile despite coming into her full powers. However, she soon faced Maxwell Lord and the villainess Cheetah who has superhuman powers.
Unfortunately, almost 60 percent of the North American box office is offline but the sequel should easily top the three-day opening considering that its number began in the mid-teens since the start of the pandemic. The studio would need such kind of victory considering the challenges that are currently facing.
In the meantime, they dropped down 80 percent over the year. However, Sony is also doing the same thing with Monster Hunter which is already heading on its second weekend, and no number has been revealed yet.
Apart from Warners and Sony, other studios are reporting their film’s number via Comscore and this includes Universal’s adult drama News of the World starring Tom Hanks, directed by Paul Greengrass which opened on Christmas Day with a $1.1 million from 1,900 cinemas. Focus Features’ most awaited film A Promising Young Woman (starring Carrey Mulligan) also started on Christmas Day with an estimated $270,000 from over 1,300 sites.
In the meantime, Universal, with its new premium VOD window, can continue to release films in movie houses. Also, the new premium VOD window allows a title to play even several days after it hit the premier on the big screen.
As reported earlier, Chris Evans commented on rumours that he is reprising his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain America.
