Add one more record to the phenomenal box office run of Warner Bros.’ superhero release Wonder Woman. Yesterday, Patty Jenkins’ critically acclaimed blockbuster saw updated international receipts that finally pushed the box office totals to $821.74 million, topping the cume of 2002’s Spider-Man and giving Gal Godot’s Amazon warrior-princess the crown as the highest-grossing superhero origin film of all time.
Soo, I don’t need to sit here and tell you how great Wonder Woman is because it’s the highest grossing superhero origin film so you’ve obviously seen it already and you know how great the movie is. I’m preaching to the choir, as they say.
But it’s pretty cool that it DECADES for Hollywood to create a Wonder Woman movie and when they finally did, they hit it out of the park. This had so much going against it and by so much going against it, I mean it came out after Batman V. Superman which is one of the worst movies that I ever saw (8 times).
Soo now that Wonder Woman is the highest grossing superhero origin film, can we throw some respect on Patty Jenkins name? Imagine that Zack Snyder made this movie. Themyscira would be a gray wasteland with half of the island on fire for no reason and there would have been no less than 1,095 shots of Gal Gadot’s tits again, for no reason.
I’m going to go watch this movie again and watch her smash a tank through a town and kick a German dude’s head off of his neck. Brb.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet so I can scold you. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
