Director Patty Jenkins’s comic-book movie, Wonder Woman, soared to the top of the box office on its opening weekend, earning £6,180,000 in cinemas across the UK and Ireland, and still climbing. The Warner Bros. Pictures release, which stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman and Chris Pine as her ally Steve Trevor, marks, arguably, the first first female-led big screen adventure of the modern superhero era.

Josh Berger, President of Warner Bros. told SFcrowsnest, “Patty Jenkins and her talented cast and crew shot ‘Wonder Woman’ in the UK and we’re glad to see the film connect in such a big way with moviegoers nationwide. With great reviews and incredible word of mouth, ‘Wonder Woman’ is the perfect movie to bring us into summer.”

Joining Gadot in the cast are Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films), Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films, “The Theory of Everything”), Connie Nielsen (“Gladiator”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”), Ewen Bremner (“T2 Trainspotting,” “Snowpiercer”), Lucy Davis (“Shaun of the Dead”), Lisa Loven Kongsli (upcoming “Ashes in the Snow”), Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”) and Eugene Brave Rock (TV’s “Hell on Wheels”).

Patty Jenkins directed the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg and Jason Fuchs, based on characters from DC. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston.

The film was produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Stephen Jones, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, Wesley Coller and Rebecca Steel Roven serving as executive producers.
