This Christmas period, the two main movies battling it out were Soul and Wonder Woman 1984, and it’s safe to say the latter has made a splash at the box office.
In North American theaters, the movie gathered $16.7 million from 2,100 theaters – around half of what it would usually receive, but still a respectable number considering coronavirus measures.
In comparison, the Wonder Woman movie which came out in 2017 managed to gross over $100 million from 4,100 theaters within its first weekend.
For context, only around 35% of US cinemas are open at present, and those which are will be operating with a limited capacity.
Those residing in big cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and San Francisco will have noticed that cinemas are closed due to COVID-19.
