'Wonder Woman' Continues Its Reign on the Small Screen

'Wonder Woman' Continues Its Reign on the Small Screen

Aug 30, 2017

Few movies rule 2017 like Wonder Woman. The DC superhero movie is the second highest-grossing release of the year, in the US and Canada, and it's number five worldwide. Critically, it's also one of the best-reviewed movies of the year, coming in sixth place on Rotten Tomatoes' Summer Movie Scorecard with a 92%. 

Now Wonder Woman is available on home video, including the premium digital video service FandangoNOW, and the Amazon princess are ruling the small screen, as well. Her movie is conquering the streaming space with a very strong first day of sales, and that's not surprising at all. 

Wonder Woman is the kind of film that you want to own at home," says Fandango Correspondent Alicia Malone, "so that you can relive the thrills and introduce the wonders of Gal Gadot’s performance and Patty Jenkins’ spectacular filmmaking to new friends and family.

Also, movie fans are excited about what Wonder Woman's success could mean for Hollywood's future. Fandango polled men and women planning to purchase the movie on FandangoNow and received the following results:

  • - 94% look forward to more dyanmic lead roles for women in movies

  • - 93% look forward to Gal Gadot's next stint as Wonder Woman in this fall's Justice League

  • - 92% want to see more women filmmakers like Patty Jenkins directing big action movies 

  • - 64% believe Hollywood will find more success with a better balance of male and female characters in movies 

Fans aren't just picking up Wonder Woman's solo adventure (for $19.99). There's a two-movie bundle (for $24.99) with Wonder Woman and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where Diana made her big screen debut, and there's a four-movie DC Extended Universe pack (for $39.99) with those two plus Suicide Squad and Man of Steel.

Plus, everyone who buys Wonder Woman through FandangoNOW gets 20% off all Fandango FanShop merchandise. No wonder everyone's getting their copy --- of course, the fact that it's a great movie is the primary reason for its smashing success.
