Mamma Mia!, directed by Phillida Lloyd, previously held the record. In 2008, it earned $609.8 million globally, a number Wonder Woman is sure to surpass on Friday.
Other top-grossing live-action films from female directors include 2015's Fifty Shades of Grey from Sam Taylor-Johnson ($571 million), 2009's Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel from Betty Thomas ($443.1 million), 2008's Twilight from Catherine Hardwicke ($393.6 million), and 2000's What Women Want from Nancy Meyers ($374.1 million).
Wonder Woman is also on track to earn the best domestic grosses of Warner Bros.’ recent slate of interconnected films based on DC Comics — even though it had the lowest opening weekend.
