"Wonder Woman", starring Gal Gadot, has smashed global box-office records for a woman-directed and woman-superhero film. Turns out, Gal Gadot was actually pregnant while shooting the action-packed film-something that's made her a superhero IRL. You want to do a movie like this because you believe in it.
Bear in mind, spoilers for Wonder Woman will be discussed in this article so click away if you have not watched it.
Wonder Woman has already smashed the box office record for a woman-directed film, but that's not the only thing that makes the film so inspirational. She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America. Jenkins replaced original director Michelle McLaren. She wrote, "Ok people, I just left the theater and KNOW for CERTAIN that the GODS have seen fit to BLESS us with #WONDERWOMAN. W.O.W".
Catherine Hardwicke's Twilight placed third, making $69.6 million, while Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck's animated movie Frozen and 2012's fearless - directed by Brenda Chapman and Mark Andrews - made up the top five with $67.4 million and $66.3 million respectively.
Wonder Woman's opening weekend topped Fifty Shades of Grey's $85 million bow to become the largest first frame ever for a female-directed pic. Have you seen the film? Jenkins' new deal could not only include directing Wonder Woman 2 but working with DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns on a script treatment. But what's important to me is that girls like my niece now have another story of success paving the way to their own, hopefully brighter, future.
