This time that superhero movie is Warner Bros and DC Comics' "Wonder Woman" staring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine.

Lassoing in the domestic box office

"Wonder Woman" lapped the competition at the domestic box office, taking in a whooping $103.1 million during its opening weekend.

"Wonder Woman" also became the third film this year, along with Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" and Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" to hit the $100 million mark domestically during their opening weekends.

The movie also had the sixth-best domestic opening ever at the June box office and was the second-best for Warner Bros and DC after "Man of Steel."
