CAIRO – 2 August 2017: Warner Bros. production company and “Wonder Woman” movie executives have been raising funds for the campaign to make “Wonder Woman” the first comic book film to be nominated for an Oscar Best Picture, plus a campaign for Patty Jenkins to be nominated as Best Director, according to Variety website.
The company is going through enormous effort to prove how hard the team worked for the movie, producing advertisements and small documentaries. The movie team hopes to break the rule and strongly compete in the Oscars.
The Warner Bros. and DC Comics “Wonder Woman” film exceeded all expectations when it delivered the largest opening weekend for a female-directed film, bringing in $100 million (EGP 1.8 billion) in the domestic box office. The Patty Jenkins film has surpassed “50 Shades of Grey”, which grossed $93 million on Valentine’s Day 2015 and was considered to be the largest opening weekend for a female director back then.
The opening record of “Wonder Woman” is now considered the third biggest opening for a DC Comics film, behind “The Dark Knight Rises”, which grossed $161 million, and “Suicide Squad”, which approximately $134 million.
The movie plot revolves around Princess Diana, who discovers her full powers when she turns out to be Wonder Woman and leaves her home to fight a war.
“Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, is written by Allan Heinberg, and directed by Patty Jenkins.
