Wonder Woman Actor Thanks Director Patty Jenkins

'Wonder Woman' lassos gold at the box office

Director Patty Jenkins made history last weekend with the release of her film "Wonder Woman". 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 film has garnered strong reviews since its debut, with a Rotten Tomatoes critics score of 93%. The LA Times reports the audience has been a fairly even 55%-45% split of female to male viewers, proving wide appeal.

"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. Actor Said Taghmaoui, who plays Sameer in the movie, took to social media to thank Jenkins for her vision for the movie.

"I liked how they showed all the Amazons as strong women, protectors, and just fearless", Franklin said at the AMC theater in Methuen.

Frankly, I was loath to see the movie shift from the idyllic island of Themyscira, with its invisible shroud of protection and robust tribe of Amazons, to the dank, dark streets of London; however, once Diana rescues the downed World War I pilot, and the Amazons vanquish the Germans chasing him, her objective is clear.

Since a boy watching Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman on TV back in the '70s I've had a bit of a thing for Diana Prince - Princess of Themyscira.




A movie theater in the Palestinian city of Ramallah has chose to refrain from screening this month's #1 movie around the world, Wonder Woman, which stars Israeli model and actress Gal Gadot for what appear to be politically motivated reasons.

The film cleverly uses the World War I setting to distance itself from other superhero films, all too often featuring convoluted plots, high tech weapons and far-fetched villains. She gave us a story that will keep you interested, characters that you will enjoy to watch on their journey and impressive visuals and action sequences.

Caroline Belge, 21, of Hyde Park saw the film in Methuen on Friday with her boyfriend Vincent Anderson, 27, of Lawrence. "We didn't cut one scene in this movie nor did we change the order of one scene in this movie from the script that we went in shooting with". "At least, it's not how it should work".

"She's basically telling the guys, 'No, I can do this".

Wonder Woman is only two weeks into its theatrical run, but fans are ready to bring the heroine home for good. After three divisive but ultimately profitable releases, WB's DC Extended Universe has got the proper jumpstart it needed with the launch of Gal Gadot's solo film.
