Wonder Woman shoots to top of United Kingdom and USA box office

So I saw Wonder Woman over the weekend with some friends.

Wonder Woman has shattered the expectations of fans and critics, and people are delighted with the first live-action movie adaptation of the legendary female superhero.

Without diving too deep into the history of film, it's no secret that female directors have had to fight tooth and nail for every project they could get their hands on.

"There's something iconic about. the story of Wonder Woman that's hitting the zeitgeist perfectly". And she should! A major reason why the film works as well as it does is Jenkins' vision and passion, so she absolutely deserves a raise to return for the follow-up.

While the actress is winning praise and her character being hailed as a role model, director Patty Jenkins is being lauded for her efforts to break outdated sexism that exists in Hollywood. And I have to say - the film was fantastic! Thankfully, you don't have to take my word for it. But as the world witnesses the arrival of a new kind of superhero, a new kind of blockbuster movie, where women are at the centre and not men, take a look at how it all began.

I have had high hopes for other superhero movies before - only to find myself meeting lots of disappointment in the end. Thankfully, audiences did not disappoint in that regard, either.

The film became the biggest opening ever for a female director, edging out "Fifty Shades of Grey" by just over $17 million.

I know some folks still get uncomfortable when these types of conversations come up, and that's fine.

We see the title character as Diana, a young girl on Themyscira, the hidden island home of the Amazons. "It's a handsome story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love".

Although the film is set in 1918, speaking to our Entertainment Team, Gal Gadot said she believes "all of Wonder Woman's values are really relevant", explaining she is all about "love and compassion and truth and justice".
