I would say it's the 2nd best DC movie with Dark Knight being #1. Though the movie is definitely worth every penny and is IMO a top 5 comic book movie and potential movie of the year.

Hopefully it does really well and we get a sequel and more comic book movies with female leads.

Off to a good start, $100.5M domestically in its first weekend which surpassed their original forecasts

Yea, but Gal is way cuter than Heath! I would agree that those are the top two.

I like focusing on it against like things. Though it is important to keep note of breaking records set by female directors (etc), it also stands well just comparing it to *any* movie.

> $100M beats the bar set for it, which is great as it keeps up the positve press. It's doing really well internationally, hitting $122M.

It's the #6 June opening weekend (though it falls behind Man of Steel).

www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/weekends/month/?mo=06&p=.htm

And #16 in comic book movies isn't bad. I wished it did better, but it's not bad. being beaten out by Suicide Squad isn't great. OTH, there was a LOT of Hype for Suicide Squad, and then a fair amount of backlash. That backlash might have hurt Wonder Woman too as people might be fed up DC and not willing to take a chance opening weekend. I'm not getting much backlash from Wonder Woman. There have been some "it's ok" reviews, but most are "it's awesome!". (Not like the strongly mixed reviews of BvS and Suicide Squad.)

www.boxofficemojo.com/genres/chart/?id=c...ss&order=DESC&p=.htm

I've not really groked the "meh" reviews ... though I will admit that the special effects of the final battle being a weak point for me. But I wasn't too concertned with it. I was raised on Dr. Who, give me characters and plot and I'll paint over the bad cgi. (The CGI was the same in Man of Steel and BvS, if you liked it there, you'll like it in Wonder Woman.)

Anyway, it's a great movie and all here should see it! It's RIGHT up our alley.

Just FYI, final adjusted totals from BoxOfficeMojo have it raking it $103M its opening weekend, placing its opening (domestic) ahead of Iron Man, Captain America: First Avenger, and Guardians of the Galaxy! Still marveling at the fact that Suicide Squad took it $133M it's opening weekend.....wow!

My favorite scene in Wonder Woman? When Diana is trying on "modern" clothes she says: "How can a woman possibly fight in this?" A subtle dig at people who complain about the fantasy costumes Superheroines wear.

My personal favorite were Etta's replies to Diana, in particular: "We will get the right to vote one day."
I think it just showed the level of disconnection between those two worlds, but a willingness to try and find a common ground.

Has to be for me when Etta is explaining Etta's demanding role as working as Steve's secretary.

Diana;
"Where I'm from, that's called slavery" and Gal has an almost 'that is below us women' tone.

ETA, Steve embarrassingly ushering them away quickly trying to shoosh Diana makes the scene even better.

WW continues to do well in the box office with only a 45% drop (MoS/BvS/SS all had >=65% drop offs). It also beat the Mummy and won it's second weekend.

WW is tracking well against MoS. It's $5M short coming out of the second weekend, but MoS had another day of sales. WW is still behind SS about $17M, but it made more money last week and this weekend than SS did, showing that it has staying power. WW even pulled in more money than BvS did it's second weekend. Though BvS pulled in so much it's opening weekend it was sitting at $260M.

Currently WW has made $205M domestically and $230.2M in foreign markets. (I wonder how well it'll do in Germany when it opens there next week).

My guess is next week WW will add another $40M to it's total. My ideal is if it keeps going strong and eventualy nets more than MoS, SS, or BvS domestically. Adding to that is it was a cheaper movie to make than any of them, so if it comes close to the box office total, it'll have made more $$.

I suspect that Cars 3 will take top spot next week though. (Though the next movie I'm excited to see is Baby Driver.)

I still need to go see WW again.

This particular image was my favorite. The absolutely best Amazon picture I have ever seen, and its exactly as captured by the camera. Madeleine Vall Beijner and Brooke Ence (who has amazing shoulder and arm development) look exactly as I'd imagined Amazons.

WW staying strong at the box office domestically with > $221M in receipts as it closes its second week of full release. Eventhough the official results are only tallied through Tuesday, its pretty likely that WW will be in the top 25 of all superhero movies IN ONLY ITS SECOND WEEK.

Furthermore, it is showing some serious staying power with its second Monday and Tuesday (good barometer for a movie in its second week) totals being higher than almost ANY superhero movie, save for the really big ones like Avengers and Dark Knight.

It seems likely that Wonder Woman will crack the top 20 superhero movies of all time (domestically) by the end of the weekend, leaping ahead of all the X-Men movies, Dr Strange, Captain America: Winter Solider, and possibly the Amazing Spiderman!

And in terms of "action heroine" movies , it is 7th alltime now, with only Star Wars and Hunger Games franchise movies ahead of it. Pretty select company, indeed!

Man....Warner Brothers made a SERIOUS mistake in not locking up Patty Jenkins for a sequel.....
