Wonder Woman which has got a monstrous start at the very first weekend of its release is ruling the American box office along with other foreign countries too.
That huge pile of receipts busted the record for the highest-grossing opening weekend for a film directed by a woman. It also debuted in the top spot in many countries, including China, where it made $38 million.
The film is much better than those for 2016's disappointing 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and 'Suicide Squad'.
In the case of most franchises, especially superhero movies, sequels perform better at the box office than the first installments. 'Wonder Woman' opening weekend has definitely proven that a sequel could be another hit for the female-led franchise. 'Wonder Woman' also broke the record for the most successful opening weekend for a movie directed by a woman.
Directed by Patty JenkinS 'Wonder Woman' seems to have hit a sweet spot for American audiences. Critics and audiences alike have praised the movie, which has a 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, a 76 on the more selective Metacritic, and an A on Cinema Score, which measures the film’s appeal to movie goers around the world. Those are very high rankings for any movie, but especially for one from Warner Bros.’ DC Cinematic Universe, which has had a rough go of it for a while.
Director Patty Jenkins took the record from Sam Taylor-Johnson for 2015's 'Fifty Shades of Grey' which made $85 million in its opening weekend.
