Hey all – Steve here. Time to find out who was the King (or Queen) of the Box Office this weekend. There has been such a huge build-up for Wonder Woman and as you can see based on all of the positive reviews and the amazing word of mouth after the advance screenings, it is far surpassing anything that DC could have imagined. If it was any company that needed a positive jolt in the arm, it was DC. Yes, there were some people out there that loved either Batman V. Superman or Suicide Squad and DC was (and still is) getting a bad reputation for being far behind Marvel. Is Wonder Woman’s performance enough to put a dent into that thinking? Only time will tell. For now, let’s get to what happened over the weekend.

1. Wonder Woman

Budget – $149 million

This Weekend – $100.5 million

Domestic Total – $100.5 million

Worldwide Total – $223 million

This is a DAMN good showing for Wonder Woman. I remember a time last year and even earlier this year that people were scared to death of this one bombing. Fear no longer, Wonder Woman is a certified hit and it likely won’t slow down all that much throughout the week and into next weekend. Here are all of the reviews from your friends here at CST.

This one is sitting a smooth 86% on Rotten Tomatoes and look at that budget – tiny for an animated film. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this one and I will likely be taking my son to see it next weekend as he has been talking about it after school for the last several weeks. I’m down and ready for this one! Oh and in case you missed it, here is Ralph’s review of this one.

3. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Budget – $230 million

This Weekend – $21.6 million

Domestic Total – $114.6 million

Nothing to see here.

That’s all for this weekend people. Next weekend we should see a shakeup in the Top 5 as we get The Mummy, It Comes At Night and Megan Leavey. Have a great week everyone!
