'Wonder Woman' Brings in $400 Million in U.S.

Wonder Woman muscled past the $400 million mark Tuesday at the domestic box office — an increasingly difficult feat for any film to achieve in North America.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, the summer hit is a major, and much needed, victory for Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe of superhero films.

The femme-centric superhero tentpole, starring Gal Gadot, has smashed a number of records since first hitting theaters in early June, including becoming the top-grossing live-action film of all time from a female helmer, with more than $795 million in global grosses.

More recently, Wonder Woman became the top grossing title of summer 2017 in North America and the No. 2 film of the year domestically behind another female-led movie, Disney's Beauty and the Beast ($504 million).

While certainly no slouch, Wonder Wonder hasn't been as big overseas in comparison to its domestic strength. To date, it is the No. 5 title of the year on a global basis behind Beauty ($1.26 billion), The Fate of the Furious ($1.24 billion), Despicable Me 3 ($881.5 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($861.4 million).
