No doubt, “#Wonder Woman” is one of the major hits this summer. The film successfully grossed over $101 million at the #Domestic Box Office and has the potential to earn a lot more in coming weeks. After the worst Memorial Day weekend performance, the summer box office needed a superhero – thanks to Warner Bros. for bringing forth “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot in the leading character. The DC Comics adaptation has earned $100 million in the United States and Canada in its opening weekend. Early projections revealed that “Wonder Woman” will gross from $70 to $90 million in its opening weekend, but the film proved critics wrong and earned a lot more than the estimates.

At the box office

“Baywatch,” on the other hand, has been a major flop of the summer. The film was supposed to gross over $45 million in its opening weekend, but it hardly made $23 million at the global box office. In no way, “Baywatch” will surpass “Wonder Woman” and “Beauty and the Beast” since the film is receiving negative comments from critics and audiences.

With numbers continuously growing, it is the first female superhero film to break the records of previous blockbusters. Directed by Patty Jenkins, the film has opened the doors of endless work opportunities for female directors. Warner Bros. CEO Jeff Goldstein told The Hollywood Reporter that the studio would develop “Wonder Woman 2” and Patty Jenkins is on board to direct the new film.

The actress said in an interview with New York Times that her role (Princess Diana) is full of strengths, courage, powers, and devotion. Diana is a hard working and brave woman – at the same time, she has a soft heart and is emotionally attached to her family. She tries her best to protect the innocents from enemies and eventually becomes a wonder woman.

No doubt, the success of this film has changed the dynamic of Hollywood industry. Previously, fans used to watch males as superheroes – but now, females will be forefront to play superheroes. Compared with other superhero movies, “Wonder Woman” outranks the openings of “Doctor Strange” ($80 million), “Thor” ($65 million), and “Iron Man” ($97 million). The film has received overwhelming comments from critics, and it’s just the beginning. We are hoping that “Wonder Woman” will break the records of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Guardians of Galaxy Volume 2” in coming weeks. Thanks to its incredible cinematography, Gadot’s outstanding performance, and fantastic storyline to make it possible for Patty Jenkins. In May 2017, it was reported that Patty and Gal are contractually committed to “Wonder Woman 2.” #Live Action Film
