'Wonder Woman' has biggest opening ever for a female director

'Wonder Woman' has biggest opening ever for a female director

Wonder Woman is certainly garnering praise from around the world for its stellar direction by Patty Jenkins and acting by Gal Gadot.

Hopefully, Jenkins will be bringing her enthusiasm to a Wonder Woman sequel and future DC productions in good time. "Wonder Woman" opening weekend has definitely proven that a sequel could be another hit for the female-led franchise.

The ban is in accordance with a decades-old law that boycotts Israeli products and bars Lebanese citizens from travelling to Israel or having contacts with Israelis. That makes it the biggest opening ever for a female director (beating out Sam Taylor-Johnson's $85.1 million opening for 2015's "Fifty Shades of Grey").

That figure breaks a significant box office record, as director Patty Jenkins became the first woman to surpass a $100 million domestic total in an opening weekend.

"(The movie is), in some ways, a more important film for boys and men than it is for women and girls", Zehner said. For now, fans can just wait until this November to see Gal Gadot in action again as she teams up with the Justice League.

Would you like to see Jenkins back for Wonder Woman 2, and take on a bigger role in the DCEU?

"Now, at least, we will be able to tell her [new] daughter Maya that she's in her mom's stomach right then", she adds, "in the middle of that battle scene".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. only signed Jenkins for a one-film deal, which means there will be a negotiation process heading into the second.

The new Wonder Woman movie set box office records last weekend, but a lot of people were introduced to the DC Comics super heroine through the late 1970's television show.

The Guardian reports $100.5 million of that came from the U.S. alone, and overshot the previous record set by Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, which clocked in at $82.5 million.

"It's a lovely story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love".
