The latest US box office figures have come in, showing that Wonder Woman ruled the weekend, bringing in $100.5 million across the country for the Friday-Sunday period.
As EW reports, that’s good for the highest US opening for a female director in history. Patty Jenkins passes Sam Taylor-Johnson ($85.1 million; Fifty Shades of Grey), Catherine Hardwicke ($69.6 million; Twilight), and Elizabeth Banks ($69.2 million; Pitch Perfect 2).
Internationally, Wonder Woman brought in $122.5 million for the weekend, boosting its global haul to $223 million after just one weekend.
Wonder Woman‘s US opening numbers are big, but they are still below other recent DC Extended Universe films such as Suicide Squad ($133.7 million) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million).
Rounding out the top five movies at the US box office this weekend were Captain Underpants ($23.5 million), Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales ($21.6 million), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($9.7 million), and Baywatch ($8.5 million).
