‘Wonder Woman’ Conquers Global Box Office
Who run the world? Girls.
Wonder Woman came, saw, and conquered the global box office with a staggering $223 million opening weekend.
The Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ film, starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, lassoed in $100.5 million domestically and another $122.5 million in 55 international markets.
Patty Jenkins now holds the banner for the best domestic opening for a female director, topping “Fifty Shades of Grey’s” Sam Taylor-Johnson ($85.1 million). Before “Wonder Woman,” Jenkins’ only feature was “Monster” — an Academy Award winner that she made more than a decade ago with an $8 million budget.
Gal Gadot stars in the film as the titular hero. The Israeli actress — also known for her role in the Fast and Furious franchise — made her debut as Diana Prince in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and will also appear at least twice more in both “Justice League” movies if she doesn’t get a sequel of her own.
I saw the film on opening day and it is fantastic!
