Wonder Woman 1984, Which debuted on HBO Max on Christmas day, at the same time it hit theaters, topped Nielsen’s updated US streaming charts for the week of December 21 to 27.
Nielsen has not officially begun measuring WarnerMedia’s streaming service, but it did provide a revision of last week’s regular rankings, saying WW84 Racked in 2.252 billion minutes of streaming. It was 35% better than Pixar inner heart, Which drew nearly 1.7 billion minutes on Disney +. It was 85% ahead of the red-hot as well Bridgerton, Which Netflix anointed as its most well-organized original show this week.
Running time should not be discounted as a factor. WW84 2 hours 35 minutes is longer than 45 minutes inner heart.

Determining what large streaming actually means for the film’s economic performance is an almost impossible task. It is approaching $ 150 million at the global box office, but has quickly declined, inadvertently leaving many areas still struggling with Kovid outbreaks.

HBO Max is only operational in the US at this point, but it will expand to Latin America and parts of Europe later this year.
