The domestic milestone announcement was made Tuesday by Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and distribution for Warner Bros. Pictures.

"When Wonder Woman opened to such a terrific number in June, we thought, 'This is truly a moment' -- for the film, for our industry, for director Patty Jenkins and, of course, for Gal Gadot," Kroll said in a statement. "Now, more than two months later, Wonder Woman has become a phenomenon, the must-see movie of the summer. Audiences have embraced this character and her story in such a spectacular fashion, and we couldn't be happier for everyone involved in bringing this incredible property to life and to cinemas across the country."

The movie -- Wonder Woman's first standalone adventure on the big screen -- co-stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya and Ewen Bremner.
