Wonder Woman Becomes Highest-Grossing Female Directed Film

Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman has officially become the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman in the world. As of this past weekend, the movie has earned an incredible $635-Million worldwide, beating out the $609.8-Million earned by Mamma Mia! back in 2008.

If that's not impressive enough, the movie has even gone on to eclipse several of its fellow superheroes. Wonder Woman has nearly doubled the domestic take of 2008's Iron Man and surpassed the total domestic takes of fellow DC Extended Universe chapters Man Of Steel ($291-Million), Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice ($330-Million) and Suicide Squad ($325-Million). And the film shows no signs of slowing down.

In short, Wonder Woman continues to be a huge win for both DC Entertainment and Warner Bros., whose previous DC films were derided by critics and fans alike - despite being financially successful on the big screen and within the Home Video market.

Last week,  Warner Bros. Pictures President and Chief Content Officer Toby Emmerich confirmed that director Patty Jenkins "is already working on" a sequel to Wonder Woman.

"Patty and I are writing the treatment right now," added DC Films co-head Geoff Johns. "The goal is to make another great “Wonder Woman” film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one."

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis, Wonder Woman is in theatres now.
