“Wonder Woman” records biggest domestic debut for a female dierctor

“Wonder Woman” took $100.5m at the US/Canada box office this weekend – making it the biggest domestic debut for a female director.

Patty Jenkins helmed the movie, the first female-led superhero film to be directed by a woman.

“Wonder Woman” beat the previous record set by Sam Taylor-Johnson for Fifty Shades of Grey, which opened with $85.1m in 2015.

“Wonder Woman”, starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot, has received largely positive reviews from film critics.

Hollywood is known for its reluctance to hire female directors, especially for blockbuster superhero movies.

Prior to “Wonder Woman”, Jenkins was best known for her 2003 Oscar-winning film “Monster”, based on the life of serial killer Aileen Wuornos.

Charlize Theron won the Academy Award for her leading role in that film.
