Captain America Gives Wonder Woman An Explosive Congratulations

Captain America Gives Wonder Woman An Explosive Congratulations

Wonder Woman opened in Irish cinemas on Thursday, June 1.

Nyong'o also gave rave reviews to the film's director, Patty Jenkins, for "not playing around" and labelled actor Chris Pine, who plays air force Captain Steve Trevor as "irresistible".

Wonder Woman scored the highest U.S. opening for a female director in history this weekend, with a three-day take of $100.5 million. Rabid DC and Marvel fans may have a very competitive nature, however the stars and the different members of both studios show nothing but support for each other.

Wonder Woman has earned an outstanding $122.5 million from 34,300 screens in 55 global markets, with $9.3 million of that figure coming from 665 overseas IMAX screens.

"Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins".

Wonder Woman conquered milestones and movie myths at North American theaters, where the Patty Jenkins-directed superhero film powered its way to a $103 million USA debut this weekend and became the biggest blockbuster ever directed by a woman.

Meanwhile, as Wonder Woman continues to smash the pitifully low expectations Hollywood had for its success, we remember again that women control the box office, and good movies by and for women make cold hard cash. Wonder Woman also got 93 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes website.

Wonder Woman had a huge opening weekend, so Warner Bros. announcing a sequel is really more of a matter of "when", not "if".

It comes after Jenkins revealed the second instalment of "Wonder Woman" will take place in America. Because who knew that women could do well at the movies?

Patty Jenkins's movie has witnessed the biggest opening ever for a movie directed by a woman and has been one of the summer's biggest debuts in the US to date.
