Box office for female director

'Wonder Woman' has biggest opening ever for a female director

That makes the superhero film starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins the biggest opening ever for a female director. The previous record holder, "Fifty Shades of Grey," brought in $85.2 million in 2015.

"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.

More than half, 52%, of the film's audience this weekend were female -- a significant number for a genre that has been dominated by men.
