Wonder woman

Fifty-two percent of Wonder Woman's audience was female, which is notable difference from the at least 60% male audience that usually accompanies superhero films. Wonder Woman and Baywatch released on Friday along with Bollywood's A Death In The Gunj, Dobaara: See Your Evil and Dear Maya. After that she directed few episodes of Arrested Development and Entourage. Starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins, the film has been an across-the-board success, scoring high marks from critics and raking in more than $100 million at the box office over the weekend.

As it turns out, the film also marked a turning point in comic book film demographics, with more than half the viewership for "Wonder Woman" being women.

Wonder Woman has shattered records at the US box office after hauling in over $100 million (GBP78 million) over the weekend (02-04Jun17). As it shows - she swims quite well.

Overseas, "Wonder Woman" also won the weekend with Dollars 122.5 million from 55 markets for a global cume of USD 223 million.

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

Amen to that. Were you wowed by Wonder Woman's first ever big screen appearance over the weekend?

The film stars Gal Gadot in the title role. It's given a much-needed boost to the DC Extended Universe, with reviews that are much better than those for 2016's disappointing "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad". The movie was forecast to place second with $29.5 million in sales, according to BoxOfficePro.

Goldstein said the studio knew they had "something special" after the reception to Gadot in that film.

Behind the new champion is another newcomer, "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie", which sits at No. 2 with an estimated $23.5 million. The latest MCU movie has grossed $355.4 million domestically so far for a global gross to date of $816.6 million. Now, "Wonder Woman" has helped close the gap to 3.4%. Past year alone, DC and Marvel combined for five major releases.
