'Wonder Woman' conquers milestone with $100.5 million debut

And it compares well to similar movies - that is, superhero flicks that aren't sequels or ensemble films.

Warner Bros. said 52 per cent of the Wonder Woman audience was female.

"All the noise about Patty Jenkins breaking the glass ceiling for directors, I think that added to it as well". So when I started to really hunker in on the significance of No Man's Land, there were a couple people who were deeply confused, wondering, like, 'Well, what is she going to do?

Just what timescale Wonder Woman 2 is working to remains to be seen, although a three year turnaround is a decent bet.

"I do believe that if you have female storytelling, you also have more authentic female characters". It is the first modern Marvel or DC film with a female-majority audience. But she has said where she wants to take the next movie. "And it was quite disturbing to me, to be honest".

"I try to keep making work and I have a female point of view that I embrace", Coppola said recently. While Baahubali had no such women-centric linkages, the film itself had become a box office wonder that created new records on each passing day.

"Talk about a woman's touch at the box office", says Anthony D'Alessandro on Deadline Hollywood.

Many, in fact, kept a keen eye on the movie's box office returns well before they were reported.

Warner Bros' Wonder Woman has received positive reviews worldwide and has been the highest grossing film of a female director for the first weekend. "If it succeeds, studios will have even fewer excuses for their now pathetic rate of hiring women to direct, and for making blockbusters centered on female characters and stories".

Wonder Woman is Jenkins' second feature, after Monster, and she's spent more than a decade working to make the movie happen. "Alien: Covenant", $4 million ($3.7 million international). 7.

With those numbers, "Wonder Woman" can now claim the official title as the first female-fronted superhero blockbuster. But "Wonder Woman" had something those movies didn't - critical support (it now has a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes).
