News is that Wonder Woman is now on track to win the domestic box office for the summer months, overtaking Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with a haul now estimated at over $400 million. It also is a record haul for a movie with a female director (Patty Jenkins).
In related news, Wonder Woman cleaned up at the Teen Choice Awards yesterday, with Gal Gadot winning for Choice Action Movie Actress.
In other box office, Annabelle: Creation won the weekend with a haul of $35 million.
And there is some news from the set of Deadpool 2. The movie starring Ryan Reynolds has been shooting in Vancouver and there was a lot of local excitement about it last week, with lots of TV news coverage about it and so on. Unfortunately, the news is all bad today because a stunt woman has been killed in an on-set motorcycle crash.
That’s all for today.
Here is the story from Deadline Hollywood about the $100 million-plus domestic opening weekend for Wonder Woman, which is at 94 percent at Rotten Tomatoes the last time I checked.
