Wonder Woman 1984 Loses Top Spot at the Box Office

No Comments

Wonder Woman 1984 has finally been dethroned at the box office in its fourth weekend of release. According to Box Office Mojo, the new Liam Neeson thriller The Marksman took the top spot with $3.2 million. Meanwhile, WW84 earned just $2.6 million. 


While the DC superhero sequel had won its previous three weekends at the box office, an impressive feat for most movies in any other year, things look grim. Wonder Woman 1984’s financial prospects don’t look great. The film comes with a reported $200 million production budget. As of this writing, it has earned $141.7 million globally, including $35.8 million domestically. 


Here is the full list of the top ten movies at the box office. 
  1. The Marksman 
  2. Wonder Woman 1984
  3. The Croods: A New Age
  4. News of the World
  5. Monster Hunter
  6. Fatale 
  7. Promising Young Woman 
  8. The Emperor’s New Groove
  9. The War With Grandpa 
  10. Pinocchio 

Currently, the majority of theaters in the U.S. remain closed due to the pandemic. Plus, many theaters overseas are shut down, meaning that things have yet to improve much, overall. The fact that the top movie this weekend earned less than $4 million is evidence of that. So things were never going to be huge for WW84. 


WarnerMedia decided to release the movie both in theaters and on HBO Max in the U.S. The same will be done for the studio’s entire 2021 slate, which has proved to be a controversial decision. In the end, the studio may be hurting itself, as this will discourage many from checking these movies out in theaters. That could be exponentially more damaging when/if things do improve at the box office later in the year. 


Wonder Woman 1984 was directed by Patty Jenkins, with Gal Gadot returning to star. The DC comics adaptation has been met with largely mixed reviews from both critics and viewers. That may also be contributing to its relatively poor returns at the box office. But we will never know what this film could have made, had the studio waited until more theaters were open. 


Warner Bros. is high on the duo of Jenkins and Gadot, even with the sequel’s performance. The director and star are set to return for Wonder Woman 3. The movie has been put on the fast track. Jenkins is expected to direct the follow-up after her Star Wars movie, Rogue Squadron. 


Wonder Woman 1984 is available now in theaters and on HBO Max.
