Cowboys and Aliens was no Oscar contender, but it was about 10x more entertaining than WW1984.
Absolutely love Cowboys And Aliens, WW84 was just okay. WW needs to face Granny Goodness and the Female Furies!
WW84 set a record.
'Wonder Woman 1984' Makes Huge Streaming Debut
WarnerMedia has touted the performance of Wonder Woman 1984on HBO Max, albeit without any hard viewing numbers.
Now Nielsen has put some data behind the claims: The ratings service says the movie racked up huge audiences on its opening weekend, becoming the biggest feature film in Nielsen's rankings — and one of the biggest streaming titles of any kind since Nielsen launched its streaming measurement.
For the week of Dec. 21-27, HBO Max users spent 2.25 billion minutes watching Wonder Woman 1984 (it was released Christmas Day). That's equivalent to about 14.9 million complete plays of the 151-minute movie. It's also 580 million minutes more than Nielsen's previously reported No. 1 for the week. Pixar's Soul on Disney+ (1.67 billion minutes), and the third highest weekly total for any title since Nielsen began releasing weekly streaming numbers in August 2020.
Following the movie's release, HBO Max said nearly half of its retail subscribers had watched the movie on its premiere day.
Nielsen doesn't yet regularly include HBO Max in its weekly rankings, although it does count WarnerMedia as a client. The ratings service says that the release of viewing figures for Wonder Woman 1984 is a one-time-only view "as we work toward introducing the data externally" (there's no timetable for HBO Max to be a regular part of the streaming rankings).
"The impact of Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max cannot be understated," said HBO Max executive vp and general manager Andy Forssell. "As was announced on Wednesday during our earnings and as this Nielsen data shows, it was a huge holiday gift to the consumer at a time when they wanted and needed it. This partnership with Warner Bros. of course continues throughout the year but it began with Wonder Woman’s arrival on Christmas Day to great success."
The big Nielsen numbers for Wonder Woman 1984 also track with an audience survey by Hollywood research firm Screen Engine/ASI, which found that the movie had the biggest first week of any SVOD movie in 2020.
HBO Max currently has about 17.2 "activated" users — meaning those who have downloaded the HBO Max app and started or upgraded a subscription. WarnerMedia and parent company AT&T say 37.7 million people have access to the streaming platform, including those who subscribe to HBO through a cable or satellite provider. Netflix, by contrast, has nearly 74 million paid subscribers in the United States and Canada and 203.7 million worldwide; Disney+ had 86.8 million global subscribers as of Dec. 2.

Wow, HBO Max only has 17.2 activated users.
LOL, that’s a pretty substantial typo I hope!
yeah it's millions
OMG, that poor .2 of a guy...
it certainly felt like 2.25 billion minutes and we only it watched once.
Don't forget Egg Fu, the sentient egg of Chinese descent!
March 30 is the day for the 4K/Blu Ray release.
Wonder Woman 1984 ( dvd ).
Best description, chick flick.
Couldn’t find anything redeemable.
Why buy it after you knew it was a turkey?
Doesn’t a 6/10 suggest it has some redeeming qualities? If I saw that rating and nothing else, I’d think: Eh, I’ll take chance and see it. Might be OK.
Let us not forget that the trailer for the movie using New Order's Blue Monday was great.
WW84 was an interesting misfire. The story is all over the place. It could have been a lot better.
For me, Gadot and Pine's chemistry makes up for some of the missteps, and Wiig's Cheetah was kind of schlocky fun. Can't rate it higher as a movie than 7/10, though.
Idmb has it at 5.4 which is being generous.
There is no way the movie can be as bad as some of you are making it out to be.
<one movie watching evening later>
The movie is as bad as some of you are making it out to be. Maybe worse.
That’s being kind.
Anyway please comment when you’ve seen the film. I paid £10.00 DVD. Viewer prerogative!!!!
I would say more like 2/10. I struggle to think of redeeming parts.
I really liked the first movie.
P.S. I had to explain to my son who that woman in the last (during credits?) scene was.
lol I've been meaning to see it but the reviews...can't bring myself to pay pay to see it. Might wait till it's on TV.
The one key ingredient missing from WW84 seems to be Zack Snyder, and he is woefully missed.
WW84 is to the DCEU what X-Men Origins: Wolverine is to the X-universe, something best discarded and forgotten.
He wasn't woefully missed in the first Wonder Woman movie which was great.
Story was dumb.
Gal Gadot still looks hot.
If another WW film is planned she should do a Vs thing with Thor. DC really need Marvel scriptwriters.
This is one film where the reviews are more entertaining than the movie itself.
Separate names with a comma.
