“WONDER WOMAN” SOARS AT THE BOX OFFICE IN THE UK AND IRELAND


One of the best-reviewed and most-anticipated Super Hero movies of all time, director Patty Jenkins’s epic action adventure “Wonder Woman” soared to the top of the box office on its opening weekend, earning £6,180,000 in cinemas across the UK and Ireland, and still climbing.  The Warner Bros. Pictures release, which stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman and Chris Pine as her ally Steve Trevor, marks the global icon’s first-ever solo feature film and the first female-led big screen adventure of the modern superhero era. 
Josh Berger, President and Managing Director of Warner Bros. Entertainment UK, Eire and Spain, said, “Patty Jenkins and her talented cast and crew shot ‘Wonder Woman’ in the UK and we’re glad to see the film connect in such a big way with moviegoers nationwide.  With great reviews and incredible word of mouth, ‘Wonder Woman’ is the perfect movie to bring us into summer.”
Gal Gadot stars in the title role of “Wonder Woman,” an epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster”), marking the DC Super Hero’s first-ever standalone feature film.
Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films), Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films, “The Theory of Everything”), Connie Nielsen (“Gladiator”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”), Ewen Bremner (“T2 Trainspotting,” “Snowpiercer”), Lucy Davis (“Shaun of the Dead”), Lisa Loven Kongsli (upcoming “Ashes in the Snow”), Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”) and Eugene Brave Rock (TV’s “Hell on Wheels”).
Patty Jenkins directed the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg and Jason Fuchs, based on characters from DC.  Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston.
The film was produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Stephen Jones, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, Wesley Coller and Rebecca Steel Roven serving as executive producers.
Joining Jenkins behind the camera were director of photography Matthew Jensen (“Chronicle,” “Fantastic Four,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie,” “A Very Long Engagement”), Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit”), Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Topsy-Turvy”) and two-time Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Bill Westenhofer (“Life of Pi,” “The Golden Compass”).  The music is by composer Rupert Gregson-Williams (“Hacksaw Ridge,” “The Legend of Tarzan”).
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Tencent Pictures and Wanda Pictures, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, “Wonder Woman.”  The film is being distributed in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.  www.wonderwomanfilm.net
