Last month it was reported that Wonder Woman, the latest entry in the struggling DCEU, was tracking around $83 million. While not a complete disaster, it really wasn’t a great number when compared to its contemporaries. However a new report yesterday stated it was more likely to be around $65-75 million domestically.
Now, as we’ve noted on this site many times, estimations and tracking are sometimes way off the mark. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was tracking top open to $160 million but actually earned $146 million. Logan was tracking $60 million, but actually brought home $88 million. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was on track to earn $120 million, but it smashed expectations with $174 million. Kong: Skull Island was set to make around $48 million, but actually earned $61 million. The Fate of the Furious was said to make $400 million globally when it opened last month, but it actually made $433 million. Tracking can be off. Sometimes they make more, sometimes they make less. Either way, there is a margin of error.
