The film, directed by Patty Jenkins, has broken the record for the highest-grossing opening weekend for a female-directed movie.

Combined with the film's $103.1 million opening, "Wonder Woman" now has a global start of $228.1 million.

Wonder Woman has broken the U.S. box office record held by a female director, making £173 million globally in its opening weekend.

Wonder Woman's stellar opening weekend success 'saves the day, at least for now, for the summer box office, according to Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore.

Gal Gadot's unbelievable performance in Wonder Women is fascinating the audience and is earning great amount.

The film, which had a production budget of $150 million, garnered an "A" CinemaScore from audiences and a 93% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it one of the best-reviewed superhero movies of all time.

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. The movie, which chronicles the origin of mythical Amazonian warrior Diana, Princess of Themyscira, is officially the first successful superhero movie with a female lead.

Set decades before the events of her scene-stealing debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot in her return as Diana Prince. "She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America".

Wonder Woman is Jenkins' second feature, after Monster, and she's spent more than a decade working to make the movie happen. "It is so important for girls and boys to have a female, strong, super hero to look up to", she said.

Wonder Woman is a HUGE hit, and there's just no two ways about it!

The director adds she would have settled for an American actress and not gone searching the world for to find her Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman, though, pushed the week's box office up 30 per cent over the same week previous year, according to comScore. Wonder Woman grossed $38 million from 16,000 screens in China alone - it marks the fourth-biggest Warner Bros. opening there ever. And what say you about Wonder Woman 2 coming to America? "I think that's completely wrong and I think we need much more women doing films".
