Wonder Woman first weekend / day 3 box office collection: Gal Gadot's film touched the mark of $100 million

Wonder Woman has enjoyed a superpowered start at the box office, smashing the record for the largest U.S. opening weekend ever from a female director.

The film made USD$100.5 million at the USA box office in its opening weekend, making it the highest-grossing opening weekend for a female-directed film (the title previously held by 50 Shades Of Grey, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson). Director Patty Jenkins took the record from Sam Taylor-Johnson for 2015's "Fifty Shades of Grey".

Increased competition from Hollywood films in coming weeks, including Tom Cruise's The Mummy on Friday, likely means Wonder Woman will end its Chinese run with just double its opening weekend haul or $70-$75 million minus online ticketing fees.

As Marvel continues its recent box office dominance, it looks as if DC finally has a contender to add to its ever-growing universe - one that could help even the playing field, if only a little.

The well-reviewed movie easily surpassed industry expectations with one of the summer's biggest debuts, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Dergarabedian said several factors contributed to the strong weekend performance, including a great release date, flawless casting and widespread acclaim. Well besides the releases Wonder Woman grabs the highest attention and collection from everywhere.

With Wonder Woman now making a killing in movie theaters across the globe, director Petty Jenkins has already set her sights on the inevitable and totally deserved (because the DCEU movie is pretty awesome: go see it!) sequel. "I'm sure we wouldn't have made the same choice", says Jenkins.

Wonder Woman is a prequel (of sorts) to DC Comics' 2016 superhero film, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The only other major release this weekend was Fox's Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, which took $23.5m (£18.2m).

The "Wonder Woman" audiences also didn't follow traditional superhero film audience demographics, with 52 percent of its viewers being women. The question was, if Wonder Woman and Thor were to compete in a fight, who would come out victorious? The latest MCU movie has grossed $355.4 million domestically so far for a global gross to date of $816.6 million. And this in a summer season that was down 9% from previous year going into this weekend.
