The movie featuring a female lead already has lots of positive reviews from critics and with word of mouth spreading like crazy, chances are it will keep ranking high at the box office for the upcoming period. Sam Taylor-Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey held the previous record for top-grossing movie by a female filmmaker.
Up until now, the movie about the princess of Themyscira has the 6th-best domestic opening at the June box office. It will take the 5th spot if it will break the new estimates by another $7.6 million, thus overtaking Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. In terms of its target audience, statistics show that the movie was more popular among women (53 vs 47 percent). Women over the age of 25 represent the predominant demographic for this weekend. But in the following week these figures could drastically change.
