For the second week in a row, "Wonder Woman" has the USA box office all tied up.
Despite the fact that the other #DCEU films - Man of Steel, Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman - all had bigger opening weekends, what likely worked in Wonder Woman's favor for the high second-weekend gross was the fact that the film is a hit with the critics and that it also interested a diverse audience.
"Apparently Palestine Towers Cinema in Ramallah fears that the audience will enjoy the excellent film 'Wonder Woman, ' and can not separate politics from an American film", Major General Yoav (Poly) Mordechai wrote in a Facebook post Sunday. After breaking the $100 million mark in its first weekend, "Wonder Woman" was hailed as a victory for not only Jenkins and Gadot, but for women and girls everywhere. The plot is admittedly predictable for a standard superhero origin story and the dialogue squeaks awkwardly before picking up steam in some places, and yet Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" differentiates itself from movies of its kind in part with Gadot's mixture of vulnerability and fearlessness. Rumors claim that "Wonder Woman 2" will feature Cheetah as the villain. Sure, every body is different but you'd think after training for her whole life she'd look less like a Victoria's Secret model and more like a boxing champion.
"You know, it's not like a long journey didn't happen but what amazes me is how little has actually changed from the first cut other than tightening. I really felt that Wonder Woman approached everything she did because she just had this enormous love for humanity", says Finch, who teamed with husband and longtime DC illustrator David Finch for the 18-issue run.
Gadot has spoken publicly about her time in the Israeli military. "She is the version of feminism that we need at that time".
It appears that The Mummy reboot may be cursed from the start, failing to impress at the weekend box office, and proving no match for Diana Prince and the Amazons in Patty Jenkins' DCEU film, Wonder Woman. "That scene was just a slightly tense scene of them walking". A chance encounter with British spy Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) helps her find her destiny; she visits London during the First World War to help the Good Guys (Allied Forces) against the Bad Guys (read the Germans). "One who is self-confident is not afraid of movies - even if it's "Wonder Woman" standing before him", he added.
The government also said Trump hotel revenue does not fit the definition of an improper payment under the constitution. An artist in Washington , D.C. projected the "Pay Trump Bribes Here" message on the Trump International Hotel in May.
I for one am loving the suspense and I'm very curious to see who will rise to the occasion and take this opportunity by the horns. The 25-year-old Halep will tackle Ukraine's fifth seed Elina Svitolina for a semi-final place.
With Jenkins now a proven commodity, she could potentially demand a much higher payday to come back for another film. And if all of that wasn't enough, in 2012, Zehner wrote a 70-page report on why Wonder Woman deserved her own movie.
