Despite not airing in some areas due to controversy over cast members, the new “Wonder Woman” film broke into the history books on its opening weekend in theaters for being the highest grossing film with a female director – Patty Jenkins. The film was only the second time Jenkins has been credited with directing a film – her film directorial debut was in 2003 with “Monster”.
Starring Israeli born actress Gal Gadot, “Wonder Woman” brought in over $100 million in North American box office receipts in its opening weekend – grossing more than the next 10 films combined!
