As for opening weekend revenue – which is a flawed but important metric on which to gauge success – Wonder Woman’s debut raked in an estimated $100.5 million in North America.
Warner Bros. revised revised the film’s weekend estimate up to $103.1 million U.S. from its earlier figure of $100.5 million US.
“Wonder Woman” of Warner Bros. topped box office in North America with an estimated United States dollars 100.5 million debut weekend, making the Patty Jenkins-directed superhero film the biggest ever opening weekend for a female director. “Wonder Woman” also broke the record for the most successful opening weekend for a movie directed by a woman. Wonder Woman will kill the game in that film as well.
The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins – the first woman to direct a superhero film, with a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and a story by Heinberg, Zack Snyder and Jason Fuchs.
Very few movies are without its faults, as I thought the CGI became clunky at times and the script a bit cheesy, but it captured the essence of a superhero movie from start to finish. I just want to make great movies. The superhero movies above it on the list of opening-weekend box office earners better watch out too, because sequels are coming. “They’re about women as well”, Warner Bros.’ Jeff Goldstein told the Associated Press. DC comics magic had not seen in past some release but this time Wonder Woman is stealing everyone’s attraction.
While the movie has been gathering positive response from the audience worldwide, “Wonder Woman” is still set to open in Oman and Bahrain on June 29. Gadot’s spirited “Wonder Woman” basically joins him in the same mission.
“High-profile cases, such as Kathryn Bigelow and Patty Jenkins, can dramatically skew our perceptions of how women are actually faring as film directors”, said San Diego State University professor Martha M. Lauzen, executive director of the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film.
“Wonder Woman”, $100.5 million ($122.5 million international).
AND it’s the film that gifted us that goosebump-inducing guitar riff… The movie was forecast to place second with $29.5 million in sales, according to BoxOfficePro.
