Wonder Woman is the biggest opening weekend for a film directed by a woman. The superhero movie directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot brought in more than $100-million.
I was a pretty giddy girl watching Gal Gadot embody Wonder Woman on the big screen this weekend. And I felt proud to be sitting with my three sons when the packed theater erupted in claps & cheers. Because awesome flick, but also girl power! Later at home I was explaining glass ceilings and how not only did this break the record for biggest opening weekend or a female-directed movie, but it proved that a movie directed by a woman (Patty Jenkins) and starring a woman (an unknown actress no-less) could be a massive success.
So...when's the sequel?!
