It’s literally just been revealed that Wonder Woman 1984 has ended up being 2021’s top home media release, which is quite surprising.
Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman sequel ended up making $166.5 million at the worldwide box office, which wasn’t very good.
The movie was made for $200 million, but it did come out during a global pandemic and also was released day and date on HBO Max in the United States.
That would have eaten up a lot into the movie’s box office takings.
Wonder Woman 1984 was also very poorly reviewed by critics and moviegoers didn’t seem to think too much of the movie either.
However, it’s now been revealed by The Numbers that Wonder Woman 1984 sold 1.427 million units in its home media release, which helped to in $34.6 million for the movie.
This also makes the movie the top home media release of 2021.

Wonder Woman 1984 occurs in 1984 (duh).
The movie starred Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord and Kristen Wiig as Cheetah.
It also featured Chris Pine back as Steve Trevor.
Despite the movie’s poor critical reception, it was revealed that director Patty Jenkins is working on the third Wonder Woman.
Gadot says filming will begin in about a year and a half.
