Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman wins the weekend with $100.5 million domestic and $223 million globally. A female lead superhero movie hasn’t done well in the box office, until now.
This is the highest opening weekend for a movie directed by a female director beating out Sam Taylor-Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey ($85.1 million).

Box Office Results from BoxOfficeMojo

Fans are praising the movie and many are saying they would pay to see it again. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film an impressive 93%.

Jandi Hansen of Enterprise is a Marvel fanatic and our Salt Lake City Comic Con reporter said, “I hate to say it Marvel, but Wonder Woman just became my new favorite superhero movie.”

Chanley Harward, Entertainment Reporter for Enterprise2day News said, “Well good job DC. The wonder woman movie was freaking awesome.”

After walking out of the movie I was ready to see it again. The cinematic juxtaposition was breathtaking. Seeing a powerful female super hero pushing men aside to save the world from war was powerful. I went in to the movie hoping it was not another Batman vs Superman and it was not. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debuted with an impressive $166.1 million last March, but failed to leave an impression on me and millions of fans that were let down by this blockbuster.

Wonder Woman was by far one of my favorite super hero movies and left me wanting more. Jenkins has recently announced she wants to do a sequel in modern times.  If you want to see more Wonder Woman you will have to wait until DC Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
