Fifty Shades Of Grey is no longer the talk of women in Hollywood
Patty Jenkins is a name to remember.
She is making history not only as a female director but a director of a DC film in general.
The previous film by a female director to make such a big boom at the box office during its opening weekend was Fifty Shades of Grey, and without disrespecting the popular film, it’s clear that we can all agree that Wonder Woman, in contrast, both portrays the role of a powerful woman while also appealing strongly to both a male and female audience – destroying the notion that a female director’s film would be a “chick flick”.
The film surprised all those who speculated that the film would earn $65 million during its opening box office weekend, perhaps due to the incredible early reviews it received, aggregated on Rotten Tomatoes and earning the DC film a record-breaking rating.
YES to more strong, talented women in Hollywood, breaking stigmas and slowly but surly, evening out the roles between the sexes on screen.
