‘Wonder Woman’ Nears Top-Grossing Live-Action Female-Directed Film Ever
Director Patty Jenkins’ smash hit Wonder Woman is set to make history with record takings for a live-action movie directed by a female during its box-office run. Wonder Woman is expected to eclipse the $609.8 million earned worldwide by Mamma Mia! in 2008 (directed by Phyllida Lloyd). The superheroine action-drama is expected to hit the milestone by the end of this week, and also has a strong chance of beating out Jennifer Yuh Nelson’s animated Kung Fu Panda 2, which raked in even more, $665.7 million. That would make Wonder Woman the top-grossing film of all time from a woman filmmaker with solo directing duties.
