Patty Jenkins reveals the setting for Wonder Woman 2

The film made USD$100.5 million at the United States box office in its opening weekend, making it the highest-grossing opening weekend for a female-directed film (the title previously held by 50 Shades Of Grey, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson).

Here are the numbers to prove it: from 4,165 theaters across the domestic box office in North America, Wonder Woman took in $100.5 million in this opening weekend!

Director Patty Jenkins's acclaimed superhero film surpassed Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, making £100.5 million in the United States compared to the erotic thriller's £85.2 million. Recent superhero films this box office debut beat include: Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Doctor Strange, Thor: The Dark World, The Amazing Spider-Man, Ant-Man, andX-Men: Apocalypse. According to Box Office Mojo, Wonder Woman ranked 16th on the list of comic book adaptations' opening weekends - sixth if you don't count sequels - and could end up taking in around $300 million throughout its theatrical run. While Patty Jenkins has said she will most likely return to direct, with Gal Gadot starring once more, the future of some of the other movie's stars, is still in question. The record for biggest opening by a female director was previously held by "Fifty Shades of Grey" director Sam Taylor-Johnson. Patty Jenkins and her exceptional cast and crew-led by the incomparable Gal Gadot-delivered a "Wonder Woman" that is true to the aspirational hero. "While the story was critically tough, she emerged as a real bright spot", Goldstein said.


And she had the biggest box office weekend!

The fifth installment of the "Pirates" franchise has earned Dollars 386.6 million to date internationally for a global total combined with North America of USD 501.2 million. 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. And I think it's Wonder Woman. "The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right", she said.

The number for Wonder Woman's opening weekend are in, and they're exceeding all expectations. Everyone from Ava DuVernay to Jessica Chastain were soaring for Wonder Woman. The latest MCU movie has grossed $355.4 million domestically so far for a global gross to date of $816.6 million. And this in a summer season that was down 9% from previous year going into this weekend.
