Wonder Woman has just hit another moviemaking milestone, as the highest-grossing live-action movie directed by a single woman. Helmed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot as the titular superheroine, the DC Extended Universe film has quickly become an unstoppable force at the global box office – having made well over $500 million in ticket sales around the globe. It is expected that Wonder Woman will ultimately wind up being among the top ten highest-grossing superhero films ever, when all is said and done.
The film continues to make waves heading into its fourth weekend of release. Wonder Woman has now set yet another box office record, ahead of it passing 2013’s Man of Steel at the domestic box office this weekend.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wonder Woman has passed the $609.8 million earned worldwide by the 2008 Mama Mia! musical movie adaptation. That means Wonder Woman is the highest-grossing live-action movie ever directed by a single woman.
Comparatively, Jennifer Yuh solo directed the animated franchise sequel Kung Fu Panda 2 in 2011, which went on to earn a robust $665.7 million – and seeing as Wonder Woman may yet eclipse that total, that means Jenkins may yet set another record for movies solo-directed by a woman at the box office. That being said, the case is different when it comes to films with two female directors (see, for example, the $742 million earned by The Wachowski Sisters’ The Matrix Reloaded or the $1.28 billion earned by Frozen, which Jennifer Lee co-directed).
