Where the Data Ranks 2017’s Comic Book Films. Domestic Total Crosses $1 Billion
Over the week Wonder Woman has repeated at the box office coming in first place and doubling its earnings over the week. Not too bad. With only minor competition, the film had one of the best second week drops for a comic film besting all the recent DC based releases and most of Marvel’s over the past 5 years. Wonder Woman continues to be wonderful!
Already, there year is an interesting one with three clear successes and a whole lot of mixed otherwise. Wonder Woman, Logan and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have done well this year, The LEGO Batman Movie and Smurfs: The Lost Village are in that debatable area, and Wilson and Ghost in the Shell are generally disappointments.
Here’s where this year’s movie crop stands as far as the actual numbers. The averages have dropped compared to last week due to the debut of Wonder Woman, but will likely bounce back next week (and then some):
Total Domestic Gross: $1.059 billion
Total International Gross: $1.487 billion
Worldwide Gross: $2.546 billion
Total Reported Budgets: $701 million
Total “Profit”: $1.845 billion
Average Domestic Gross: $151.2 million

Average Budget: $100.1 million
