“Wonder Woman 1984” is proving to be the jolt to HBO Max that the streamer was hoping for, as the DC film was by far the highest-streaming film during the week of December 21-27, according to Nielsen.

Upon its release on Christmas Day, “WW84” logged a whopping 2.3 billion minutes of viewing on Nielsen’s streaming charts, beating out fellow holiday release “Soul,” which logged around 1.6 billion minutes on Disney+. While the longer run time for “WW84” was a factor in this disparity — it is 50 minutes longer than the Pixar movie — strong demand for the first major superhero film since the rise of COVID-19 was also a factor, as seen by the fact that “WW84” was also the first film since the start of the pandemic to earn an opening weekend higher than $10 million at the domestic box office.
