Wonder Woman has entered into some most elite company as she continues to bring in substantial box office numbers. That includes her ranking in the highest grossing action heroines ever.
Wonder Woman has now entered fourth place in that ranking, with a domestic total so far of $212,609,246 million (via Box Office Mojo). It passes Terminator 2: Judgement Day which brought in $2014 million, but it has some work to do to catch the next one on the list in Katniss Everdeen.
The Jennifer Lawrence starring series commands the next few spots on the list, with Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 at $281 million, Mockingjay Part 1 at $337 million, the original Hunger Games at $408 million, and Catching Fire at $424 million.
After Katniss sits JynErso of Rouge One: A Star Wars Story, which brought in $532 million. Erso is at #2 on the list, sitting behind Rey in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Wonder Woman has a long way to go catch Rey, as that film brought in over $936 million.
Still, not bad company at all to be in, wouldn't you agree?
Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
