* Stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine
* Global opening of $223 million; $100.5 million domestically
* Biggest opening ever for a female director
Wonder Woman landed in theaters last weekend, as one of the summer’s most anticipated movies, and the momentum hasn’t stopped since.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman lassoed in a historic $100.5 million at more than 4,000 theaters in the U.S. over the weekend. Internationally, it grossed at 55 markets for $122.5 million, giving the DC film a stellar global opening of $223 million — the biggest opening in history for a movie directed by a woman.
Gal Gadot stars as Diana of Themyscira, Princess of the Amazons and progeny of Zeus who’s trained to be an unconquerable warrior. The Israeli actress’ bad ass portrayal of Wonder Woman has given the DC Universe an electrifying jolt of life and is set to be a contender for Marvel — especially when Wonder Woman joins Batman, Aquaman and the Flash for the first time in November’s Justice League.
