"Wonder Woman" continued its impressive box office run this week and proved itself the most successful domestic release in the DC Extended Universe.
The film's Thursday night box office take of $2.68 million brought its domestic box office totals to $330.5 million, topping the $330.3 million earned domestically by "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
The achievement comes after "Wonder Woman" opened with a significantly slower start than any of its DC Extended Universe brethren. Its $103 million opening weekend was less than the $116 million of "Man of Steel" (2013), $166 million of "Batman v Superman" (2016) and $133 million of "Suicide Squad" (2016). However the she-ro retained an impressive percentage of moviegoers between its debut and the following weekend. "Wonder Woman" had a 45% drop off in audience attendance, much lower than "Batman v Superman's" whopping 69% decline.
A heartbroken Adele took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to inform fans of the cancellation of the final two shows of her current tour.
"To not complete this milestone in my career is something I'm struggling to get my head around and I wish that I wasn't having to write this," the 15-time Grammy winner said in a statement posted on her Twitter feed. "I have changed my life drastically in every way to make sure I got through this tour that started at the beginning of last year. To not be able to finish it is something I'm really struggling to come to terms with."
The singer-songwriter was wrapping up her Adele Live 2016 (2017) tour with a final four shows at Wembley Stadium in London, when vocal strain forced her to seek medical advice.
When [Errol Flynn's] autobiography came out I couldn't resist checking the index and going to the page where he mentioned me. He said he thought he loved me. 'Thought!' That meant he didn't! I didn't read another word! Then several years ago when I was returning for the release of the DVD version of 'Gone With the Wind,' I was determined to read more. I began with his second sentence about me in which he said that he decided that he did love me. To think of all those years I didn't believe he did.
