Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman took USD 100.5 million (GBP 78.09 million) at the US/Canada box office this weekend - the biggest domestic debut for a female director, the BBC reported.
Jenkins beat the previous record set by Sam Taylor-Johnson for Fifty Shades of Grey, which opened with USD 85.1m in 2015.
The movie Wonder Woman, starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot, has received largely positive reviews from film the critics.
Hollywood is known for its reluctance to hire female directors, especially for blockbuster superhero movies.
