Strong Holiday Business for “WW84”


The sequel to 2017’s superhero hit Wonder Woman has opened in US cinemas, generating “surprisingly robust” ticket sales, according to one industry paper.

Entertainment trade magazine Variety said Wonder Woman 1984’s $16.7m debut was “the biggest opening weekend haul in the coronavirus era”.

The Warner Bros film was made available on the HBO Max streaming service on the same day it opened in more than 2,000 cinemas in the US and Canada.

Its distributor said HBO Max’s viewing hours had tripled as a consequence.
