It’s breaking other records too. The movie is the sixth largest worldwide debut ever. Also, the only movie with a female lead which has opened better globally was ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. The movie earned 51% more than Wonder Woman’s opening weekend, so by default, it’s the biggest female-led superhero launch of all time.
