Who run the world…GIRLS!
“Wonder Woman” exceeded Hollywood’s expectations at the Box Office to become the biggest domestic opening for a female director ever. Directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot under Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment “Wonder Woman” was aimed to make $95 million in North America and upward of $100 million internationally, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Wonder Woman has always been one of the top superheroes on the DC Comics.However, it took a long time for Hollywood to give us the superhero movie we wanted. Just seeing how women and girls around the world are celebrating having a strong female superhero is breathtaking.
“Until studios change their ways and stop only generating from within the same small group of people — and until they become interested in attracting more diverse kinds of stories and audiences — women directors will continue to be one of the many, many kind of collateral damage,” she told LeanIn. “If you are still focused on attracting young men to the box office, you will continue to hire mostly (formerly) young men to speak to them. The irony is that the data now clearly shows that this audience is no longer the most powerful in the world. Middle-aged women are. Yet the studio system still seems very slow to figure out how to shift their approach.”
