Mumbai: Gal Gadot is on cloud nine as her film ‘Wonder Woman’ has become the number-one movie in the world and the actress could not thank her fans enough for making it possible.
The Patty Jenkins-directed movie had a USD 103 million opening in the US and has since made USD 12 million more, bringing its domestic total to USD 115 million. Overseas, the movie has made USD 125 million for a global gross of USD 240 million, reported People magazine.
Gadot posted a thank you video on Facebook which has garnered 1.4 million views so far.
“You made this movie what it is. Your love and support for this character and myself are not to be taken for granted. ‘Wonder Woman’ is the number-one movie in the whole world. This is all you. So a big thank you. I’m sending you guys all the good energy and love back,” she said in the video.
Jenkins also tweeted, “I want to send out the deepest and sincere THANK YOU to all of you who made this so. YOU have helped us make change. Amazing!!!”
Gadot as Wonder Woman first appeared briefly in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’.
The new standalone film, which critics and fans feel was much needed in the male-dominated superhero genre, is an origin story and traces Wonder Woman’s journey from a sheltered Amazonian princess to the true warrior that she eventually becomes.
The film hit the theatres last Friday and became a critical and box office success, breaking records for the biggest opening weekend for a film directed by a woman.
