After much hype and solid reviews, ‘Wonder Women‘ opened this weekend to gross $100.5 million, making it the biggest opening in history for a female director.
“Patty’s vision mesmerized the audience. She is a real talent. Clearly, this is a movie that is resonating with moviegoers around the globe,” said Warners domestic distribution president Jeff Goldstein. “I am sure we will be seeing a lot more of Diana on the big screen.”
The film stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince and made a $223 million debut worldwide, including a $38 million debut in China. Meanwhile in the U.K., the movie opened to $7.5 million.
Wonder Woman earned more in its opening weekend than the first Thor and Captain America flicks.
Elsewhere, Captain Underpants finished No. 2 in the box office with $23.5 million and Pirates of the Caribbean had $21.5, giving it a total of $114.6 million in its two weekends in theaters.
Wonder Woman is currently in theaters and cinemas worldwide.
