Movie Theaters Get A Much-Needed Bump From ‘Wonder Woman 1984’
- Wonder Woman didn’t just save the day in Wonder Woman 1984 – she may have saved the entire movie theater business.
- A better-than-expected opening weekend for the DC sequel actually had an impact on Wall Street, with shares in movie chains like Cinemark, Imax, Marcus Corp, and National CineMedia all going up this week.
- However, the nation’s largest theater chain, AMC, continued to struggle with another 5% drop.
- Wonder Woman earned $16.7 million at the box office in its opening weekend, despite releasing simultaneously on HBO Max – where it was viewed by nearly half of all subscribers.
