Patty Jenkins now holds the banner for the best domestic opening for a female director, topping "Fifty Shades of Grey's" Sam Taylor-Johnson ($85.1 million). The film had originally been pegged to open in the region of $175 million, according to tracking estimates.
In that particular scenario, Wonder Woman stepped into the danger zone in order to rescue the citizens trapped inside of it.
"Wonder Woman" is the first major superhero film to be led by a woman, and it was women who helped the film to the top of the box office this weekend.
Finally, more than 70 years after the introduction of the character, Wonder Woman has been given the big-screen debut she deserves. And judging by the domestic box office numbers, it looks like fans were pretty pleased with the outcome.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Tencent Pictures and Wanda Pictures, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, "Wonder Woman". "It's been so even keel and steady.' It's been such an opposite experience", she added.More news: CBSE Class X: Results out for some zones, others following

The film follows Amazon warrior Diana Prince who seeks to end World War I with the aid of Steve Trevor (Chris Pine).
This has not only pushed DCEU to a positive direction, Wonder Woman's collection has also set a new record for the female superhero movie. Also opening was CBS Films' dramatic comedy Dean which took in $60,366 from 15 theaters for a $4,024 per-screen average. In fact, it had the sixth biggest non-sequel comic book movie opening ever. The film released a day earlier in a few global markets resulting in $47 million dollars on Friday alone, Variety shared.
Batman might be rich, Superman might be an alien, but Wonder Woman has experience and superpowers.
In making the announcement, Kroll stated, "We're incredibly proud of "Wonder Woman" and thrilled that it has resonated with critics and moviegoers everywhere".
"Frankly, I think they did a better job than I could have because I don't know that I would have scoured the earth as hard to find her".
