"Wonder Woman" flew effortlessly to the top of the box office over the weekend and grossed $100.5 million in domestic ticket sales.
Wonder Woman is the first female-led superhero film to be directed by a woman.
"Wonder Woman" didn't surpass the openings of previous DC Comics adaptations: the terribly received "Batman v. Superman" and "Suicide Squad".
"The director in me wants this film that I made to succeed".
Wonder Woman cost $149 million to make, not including marketing costs, while estimates for weekend sales ranged from $89 million at Box Office Mojo to $111 million at BoxOfficePro.com. Wonder Women is doing a fantastic job and is going to earn maximum profits in the upcoming days as well.
Some still had issues with "Wonder Woman". 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. But unlike those releases, "Wonder Woman" is good enough to play strongly through the next few weeks. That would bring its global opening to US$223 million, according to Variety, for the third-largest ever opening for a DC Comics film.
Warner Bros' distribution chief Jeff Goldstein said: "Globally this property has just resonated with fans".
Internationally, the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie picked up another $73.8 million (GBP57 million) to take its tally past $500 million (GBP389 million).style="text-align: center;"
