The number for Wonder Woman's opening weekend are in, and they're exceeding all expectations. Basically, everyone is in love with the movie, including some other familiar heroes.
Mark Ruffalo, who reprises his role as the Hulk in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, shared his joy over the film's very successful opening weekend.
With $100.5 million in North America and an additional $122.5 million internationally, Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman can boast the biggest-ever opening weekend for a film directed by a woman.
Outside of the Marvel universe, the rest of Hollywood really loved it too. MTV points out two obvious settings: the 1940s/World War II, because William Moulton Marston created the character of Wonder Woman in 1941; or the '70s, in honor of the Lynda Carter-starring TV series.
Director Patty Jenkins's film took 103.1 million dollars (£79.7 million) in the U.S., the biggest opening for a movie directed by a woman.
"Wonder Woman", the fourth film in the DC Extended Universe ("Man of Steel", "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", "Suicide Squad"), offers audiences a much more refined product that includes handsome CGI, top-notch chemistry between actors and a movie that embraces various social issues, knocking each one out of the park. It's the scene were Chris Pine's Steve Trevor takes Diana Prince to a World War I battlefront. But the person who's not me at all, who lives inside of me. has heard people say for many years, 'Ah, nobody would go see a female superhero film, women don't like action, ' all those things.
Wonder Woman will be released in theaters on June 2, 2017. As Wonder Woman producer Charles Roven told CinemaBlend, "Nothing has been written".
"I realized that "Wonder Woman 2" is its own great movie", she told EW.
