‘Wonder Woman’ Absolutely Slayed the Box Office, Broke Records

Not really a surprise, let’s be honest.

Wonder Woman has opened at a worldwide total of $223 million. Let’s break that down.

It opened to a powerful $100.5 million domestically and $122.5 internationally.

That’s a huge deal. Why? Because it marks the biggest opening for a female director ever.

Patty Jenkins, director of Wonder Woman, surpassed the previous record holder of Fifty Shades of Grey (directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson), which brought in $85.2 million its opening weekend in 2015.

More than half of the people who saw the movie were women (52%), which is a huge jump from regular superheroes, which mostly skew towards men.

According to CNNPaul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore said,

“Any ridiculous notion that a woman may not be suited to direct a big budget superhero movie is hopefully once and for all shattered.”

Hope so, Paul.
