Wonder Woman Movie Sets Box Office Record, As Top 10 Movies At The US Box Office Revealed

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).

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
