WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Wonder Woman easily tops the chart with 100.5MM, the first, female-directed movie to debut in three digits; it's also considerably higher than the estimates just a week earlier, some of which were as low as 60MM.  The 122.5MM from foreign markets is less impressive, but overall, it looks to be worth a few hundred million dollars of profit for WB/DC before it leaves theaters, depending on how well The Mummy does. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie placed with 23.5MM, which is probably alright, considering DreamWorks outsourced this to Canada on a frugal 38MM production budget. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales tumbled 66 percent to show with 21.6MM; it continues to gross overseas, but the overall numbers now look shaky.  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 took the fourth slot with another 9.7MM added to it's already yuge pile of cash.  Baywatch rounds out the Top Five with 8.5MM and may be even shakier than the Pirates.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases are Wonder Woman, which is currently scoring 92 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, which is scoring 86 percent.

WONDER WOMAN starts out wth an advantage the current run of Superman and Batman movies could never have -- most people have at best only the vaguest idea of the backstory of this otherwise iconic character.  So director Patty Jenkins gets the benefit of being able to tell an origin story, and in a version that transplants elements of her canon from WWII to WWI. Traveling to Man's World from the Paradise Island of the Amazons, the screenplay also makes much of the fish-out-of-water trope, both dramatically and comic relief, though never really at the expense of Princess Diana.  Rather, it tends to illuminate Diana's personality, which has more nuance than we tend to get from the more iconic Kal-El or even Bruce Wayne (because audience have very fixed expectations of who they will be).  Gal Godot turns in a star-making performance as Princess Diana, delivering on the promise of her scene-stealing in Batman vs Superman, well-matched with Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, a role seemingly written to play to his strengths in action and comedy.  I've seen people appreciate that with Jenkins at the helm, it's less gritty than the prior entries in the DCEU, but I don't know that it's less gritty as much as being less urban in its settings.  The comic relief in the screenplay does make it feel a bit lighter, but without sacrificing the mythic quality DC was shooting for here.  Thoroughly enjoyable.
