‘Wonder Woman’ crosses $800M mark

Wonder Woman has passed the $800 million mark. As the summer blockbuster continues to dominate the worldwide box office, director Patty Jenkins has formally signed a contract with Warner Bros. to return for the sequel, making her the highest-paid female director in Hollywood.

Grossing $404 million domestically and receiving unanimous praise from members of the FF2 Media team (scattered from Los Angeles to New York City), the comic book action thriller has made a significant dent in the glass ceiling for female filmmakers.

Wonder Woman is a refreshing highlight within the muck and mire of all the rest of the reboots and remakes of super hero films.  It certainly lives up to its hype and just may be an example for little girls to want to be just like Wonder Woman.  I think we could all use that example in our lives!” – Senior Contributor Pamela Powell

“This film is socially aware and one of the most empowering superhero films of all time. Seventy-six years after her creation, Wonder Woman finally gets the origin story she deserves, and Patty delivers.” – Associate Lindsy M. Bissonnette

“Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman is a popcorn delight: warm, easy on the eyes, a balanced palette, and perhaps more interesting in this case, different packaging. Yes. So before I even throw at you the heavy-handed argument, which truly makes this film a unicorn, you should probably go and check this summer blockbuster out anyway.” – Associate Tracy Shen

Wonder Woman DVD and Blu-ray release date is set for September 19, 2017 and available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes on August 29, 2017.
