Wonder Woman's debut marked the biggest opening ever for a female director.
"A perfectly cast Gal Gadot in the lead role coupled with a great release date, killer marketing campaign and above all a great movie that has both critics and audiences buzzing on social media, contributed to this better than expected result", said movie analyst Paul Dergarabedian at comScore.
That should put to rest the Fox News commentators who opine that Wonder Woman isn't "American enough".
While it may be legally questionable to hold an all-female screening of Wonder Woman, it's also worth questioning the motives of people so upset by the idea that they would take action to prevent it from happening, of which there have been plenty. But this did not stop Gadot from challenging Hemsworth to an actual fight. That total was also almost matched by the other ten Asian markets, where the film combined for $34.1 million and swept the No. 1 spots.
As per Warner Bros, the film has amassed Rs 7.40 crore (net) in its opening weekend collection in India.
The Avengers director Joss Whedon tweeted out his praise for the movie, calling it a "goddamn delight". Costing about $149 million to make, Wonder Woman received a strong A CinemaScore from audiences. "The story will take place in the US, which I think is right".
Baahubali 2-The Conclusion, the sequel to the super hit Baahubali-The Beginning had hit a jackpot on its opening weekend as it raked in about Rs 400 crore (including pre-booking) within the first three days of its release.
Pine and Gadot have been praised for the great chemistry they share onscreen as Diana Prince and American spy, Steve Trevor; a warm, naturally amusing and sweet friendship that blossoms into true love.
