NEW YORK – “Wonder Woman” was even mightier than expected. Warner Bros. has revised the film’s weekend haul up to $103.3 million.

The studio on Monday said the tickets sold on Sunday turned out to be even higher than it estimated over the weekend. Warner Bros. previously had announced a $100.5 million North American estimate.

The nearly $3 million swing, Warner Bros. said, was caused by an unusually small drop in audience from Saturday to Sunday. That indicates that the well-reviewed film’s strong word of mouth is giving “Wonder Woman” more momentum than usual.

The Patty Jenkins-directed film, starring Gal Gadot, became the biggest opening for a film directed by a woman and by far the most successful female-led superhero release.
