The show — which was based on Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso — followed a scrappy, sassy hustler (Robertson) who realizes that she can buy vintage fashion in secondhand stores, then sell them for hundreds more on eBay.

Kay Cannon (30 Rock) wrote the 13-episode series, which was produced by Charlize Theron (Monster) and Amoruso, who announced the cancellation in an Instagram story. »

Wonder Woman becomes highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director

10 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having become the first female filmmaker to direct a movie with a budget of $100 million, and the first to have a movie debut with a domestic opening weekend of $100 million, Patty Jenkins has now added another feather to her cap with Wonder Woman’s latest box office milestone.

The DC blockbuster has now reached $615 million worldwide, meaning it has overtaken 2009’s Mamma Mia! to become the highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director. The overall record is currently held by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and the animated film Kung Fu Panda 2 on $665 million, which Wonder Woman will likely overtake in the coming weeks (it should also be pointed out that Jennifer Lee co-directed Frozen with Chris Buck, and then went on to gross $1.2 billion).

Domestically, Wonder Woman has already surpassed Man of Steel’s $291 million, and is looking to finish the weekend with around $319 million, meaning it is fast approaching »

‘Wonder Woman’ Breaks Records: Biggest Live-Action Box Office Hit by Female Director

23 June 2017 1:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Wonder Woman” set a new milestone on Friday, becoming the highest-grossing live-action film to be directed by a woman.

The superhero adventure eclipsed the $609.8 million racked up by “Mamma Mia!,” the Abba musical that was directed by Phyllida Lloyd.

Wonder Woman” was directed by Patty Jenkins, who previously oversaw the Oscar-winning “Monster.” Despite the critical raves that “Monster” earned, Jenkins had to wait 14 years before directing another feature film. She only got the “Wonder Woman” gig after the original choice, Michelle MacLaren, was pushed out in the wake of creative differences.

Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” Poised to Become Top-Grossing Live-Action Film Directed by a Woman

23 June 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Wonder Woman

Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” is poised to make herstory yet again. The Gal Gadot-led superheroine film is quickly approaching a milestone: it’s about to become the top-grossing live-action film directed by a woman. Diana Price’s origin story “will eclipse the $609.8 million earned worldwide by Phyllida Lloyd’s ‘Mamma Mia!’ (2008) to become the top-grossing live-action film of all time from a female director, not accounting for inflation,” The Hollywood Reporter writes. Jenkins already holds the record for highest domestic opening for a female director for the critically acclaimed blockbuster.

Wonder Woman” passed the $600 million benchmark as of Wednesday at the worldwide box office, taking in $601.6 million. It will probably surpass “Mamma Mia!’s” numbers today, Friday.

“‘Wonder Woman’ also has a strong shot of passing up [Jennifer Nelson’s 2011 animated film] ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’s’ $665.7 million to become the top-grossing film of all time from a female filmmaker with solo directing duties,” THR predicts. “In terms of a movie from female and male co-directors, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck’s ‘Frozen’ (2013) is at the top of the box-office list with $1.28 billion in global ticket sales.”

Wonder Woman” is just the second women-directed film to be released with a budget of $100 million-plus. The first was Kathryn Bigelow’s 2002 thriller “K-19: The Widowmaker.” When Jenkins was asked a question about the responsibility of stepping behind the camera for the most expensive film ever helmed by a woman she said, “I can’t take on the history of 50 percent of the population just because I’m a woman.” The “Monster” helmer explained, “I’m just trying to make the greatest version of ‘Wonder Woman’ that I can for the people who love the character as much as I do and hope that the movie lives up to all the pressure that’s on it.”

Wonder Woman tops $600 million worldwide

23 June 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros.’ latest DC blockbuster has continued its impressive march at the global box office, with Wonder Woman pushing its worldwide haul to $601.6 million by close of play on Wednesday.

Domestically, Wonder Woman has grossed $289.2 million, with a further $312.4 million from international markets. It will hit another milestone today, overtaking the $609.8 million global total of 2008’s Mamma Mia to become the highest-grossing movie from a female director.

Despite competition from the likes of Cars 3 and Transformers: The Last Knight, Wonder Woman will also overtake Man of Steel’s domestic total this weekend and is fast closing in on its $668.0 million total.

See Also: Gal Gadot’s salary for Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman and Justice League revealed

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Wonder Woman sees Patty Jenkins (Monster) directing a cast that includes Gal Gadot (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Chris Pine (Star Trek), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator), Robin Wright (House of Cards), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Said Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), Lisa Loven Kongsli (Force Majeure), Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead) and Ann Wolf. »

Wonder Woman Soars Past $600M at the Worldwide Box Office

22 June 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Safe to say, Warner Bros. has a very big, and very important hit on their hands. After three weeks in theaters, Wonder Woman has already cemented itself as the best movie in the DC Extended Universe, and it could even manage to outgross Man of Steel in the coming weeks. But as of today, Wonder Woman has officially crossed the $600 million mark at the international box office, making it a financial and critical success for the studio. And the movie still has a long way to go.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, that $600 million figure puts Wonder Woman inches from a very significant milestone. Once the movie passes $609.8 million worldwide, which it will easily do this weekend, probably before Friday is over with, that will make Wonder Woman the highest-grossing live-action movie ever directed by a female director. The previous record holder is Mama Mia!, which was directed by Phyllida Lloyd and came out back in 2008. So it looks like Patty Jenkins' first movie since Monster is a pretty big deal and should give her a whole lot of power in Hollywood moving forward.

As for how Wonder Woman stacks up against the rest of the Dceu financially, it is still the lowest-grossing of the four movies released so far, but that will almost certainly change by the end of its theatrical run. Man of Steel's $668 million total is easily in reach, and Suicide Squad, which managed a very impressive $745 million last year, could be attainable as well. But that may be pushing it at this point. Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice will, in all likelihood, remain at the top of the heap with $873 million. But nobody would have ever expected a solo Wonder Woman movie would even get close to what a movie featuring Batman and Superman on the big screen together for the first time ever was able to bring in. And hey, let's not forget that Gal Gadot was in that movie as well.

Wonder Woman is going to be financially successful no matter how you slice it at this point. Domestically, it is definitely going to beat Man of Steel, which topped out at $291 million. Wonder Woman already has $289. But more importantly, the Dceu movies have been divisive at best. Critics truly hated both Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. With Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. managed to garner terrific reviews from both fans and critics alike. That was more than needed at this point. Not to mention how much good favor they earned by having a female direct the movie. Plus, this has proved that female directors can do these movies just as well, if not better, than male directors can. That is going to (hopefully) open a lot of doors for other directors.

It hasn't been formally announced yet, but Patty Jenkins is currently working on the story for Wonder Woman 2 with Dceu head Geoff Johns. Both Jenkins and Gal Gadot should be looking at a pretty big payday for that movie, since Jenkins only had a one-picture-deal and Gadot was paid $300,000 for her part. A pretty reasonable chunk of that $600 million will be lining their pockets, and they deserve it. »

Jennifer Lopez to Star in and Produce Romantic Comedy ‘Second Act’

22 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Lopez will star in and produce the romantic comedy “Second Act” for STXfilms as part of the company’s efforts to focus on female-driven movies.

STXfilms touted the movie as being in the vein of “Working Girl” and “Maid in Manhattan.” Lopez will portray a big box store employee who reinvents her life and her lifestyle, which gets her the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree.

“There are so many things I love about this project and script,” said Lopez. “People try to put women to sleep at a certain age. ‘Second Act’ is a story that empowers the every woman to do more, to be more, and not limit their dreams. I am thrilled to partner with Stx as they continue to create and empower the female audience.”

Jennifer Lopez’s NBC Series ‘World of Dance’ Marks Game-Changing Moment for Dance Industry

Veteran comedy director Peter Segal will direct the film. His credits include “50 First Dates,” “Anger Management,” and “Get Smart.”

The project was developed by Stx with Lopez from an idea conceived by Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Justin Zackham. The two wrote the script for “Second Act,” which will be produced by Lopez, Goldsmith-Thomas, Zackham and Benny Medina.

Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms, and the studio’s president of production Sam Brown made the announcement Thursday.

“When Jennifer, Elaine and Justin came to us with this idea, we loved it right away,” said Fogelson. “The premise of reinventing yourself and creating a career and life-defining second act is hugely relatable and aspirational. Jennifer’s talents as a film and television actress, producer and recording artist are legendary. She is a true global superstar and and we think she is perfect for this role.”

Lopez starred in several successful romantic comedies and dramas between 2001 and 2005, including “The Wedding Planner,” “Maid in Manhattan,” “Shall We Dance,” and “Monster in Law.” Other key credits include “Out of Sight,” “The Cell,” and “Anaconda.” She starred opposite Ryan Guzman in 2015’s erotic thriller “The Boy Next Door.”

Stx noted in the announcement that its next six releases feature women in leading roles — “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” “Molly’s Game,” “Gringo,” “A Bad Moms Christmas” and “The Happytime Murders.”

Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay, & Reese Witherspoon Make THR’s Most Powerful People in Entertainment…

21 June 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay, & Reese Witherspoon Make THR’s Most Powerful People in Entertainment ListAva DuVernay: The Hollywood Reporter/YouTube

Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Ava DuVernay are all collaborating on one of 2018’s most highly anticipated films, “A Wrinkle in Time.” Winfrey and Witherspoon star in the DuVernay-directed adaptation of the beloved sci-fi novel, set to bow early next year. The trio of A-listers have something else in common: they’re among the 24 women to make the cut for The Hollywood Reporter’s Most Powerful People in Entertainment List.

The number of women in this year’s THR 100 marks an improvement from last year’s, when 19 women appeared on the list. Women — such as TV titan Shonda Rhimes, “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins, and producer/ host Ellen DeGeneres — earned spots on the list for acting, producing, directing, and fronting studios. Here are some highlights from the feature:

Witherspoon in “Home Again

The best advice Witherspoon has received about power: “I had the privilege of working with Oprah Winfrey on a movie for three months this year, and she taught me so much about business. She does not waste a minute of her time, and she does it all with grace and style and humor. She is hustle personified.”

What Witherspoon has learned about her job from her kids: “My kids help me understand emerging platforms and the opportunity there to reach a broader audience. It inspired me to expand my production company into digital and mobile content for women and create a dialogue on social media with my fans.”

Jenkins and Gal Gadot on the set of “Wonder Woman”: Jenkins’ Twitter account

The best advice Jenkins has received about power: “I learned to watch the simplicity of shifting power dynamics from [producer] Brad Wyman, who used to break it down for me daily while we were making ‘Monster.’ He has one of the cleanest grasps on power of anyone I’ve ever met because it is totally unfettered by emotion or his own agenda. He’s a pessimist but could always be talked into pointing out the only available avenues for optimism when pushed. I learned a lot from him about the dry simplicity of strategy and patience.”

The object on Jenkins’ desk people would be surprised to see there: “An Avid. I don’t edit my films myself, but I need access to all takes, music, and ways of doing things at all times. It’s the writer in me who wants access to fiddle and learn.”

How Trump has changed Jenkins’ job and life: “I think he has made the messages and discussions I want to have more in-focus and pertinent than ever.”

Who DuVernay would switch jobs with in Hollywood for a day: “[Netflix’s] Ted Sarandos. I’d like to know how it feels to be the industry’s biggest disruptor and have those deep pockets too. I’d make it a shopping day.”

How Trump has changed DuVernay’s job and life: “He’s devastated me in many ways, but each of those ways has made me more determined than before.”

Diane Nelson: Wall Street Journal/YouTube

Who Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment, would switch jobs with in Hollywood for a day: “Patty Jenkins. To feel demand for your talent, regardless of gender, and knowing you are creating films that are going to leave lifetime imprints.”

The best advice Nancy Dubuc, President/CEO of A+E Networks, has received about power: “I can’t say there’s been any specific advice that I could quote. But, so many people that I admire, especially those women who have climbed the ranks, from superagents to gifted storytellers and mentors — all taught me by example to respect your use of power and never assume it’s a given, certainly as a woman.”

Patty Jenkins Working on Treatment for Next “Wonder Woman” Film

21 June 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Patty Jenkins on “Late Night with Seth Meyers

Wonder Woman” has grossed over $578 million worldwide — so far — so it comes as no surprise that a sequel is being developed for the Gal Gadot-led blockbuster. But earlier this month news broke that the film’s herstory-making director, Patty Jenkins, was not signed on to helm the next installment of the franchise. Fortunately it seems like it may only be a matter of time until the “Monster” director is locked in — Variety has revealed that she’s already working on a script for the sequel. Allan Heinberg (“Grey’s Anatomy”) penned the first film.

“Patty and I are writing the treatment right now. The goal is to make another great ‘Wonder Woman’ film,” said Geoff Johns, who oversees the DC film universe for Warner Bros. alongside Jon Berg.

Johns promised that he and Jenkins have a “cool idea” for the followup, and Variety offered more details about the plot. Unlike the first “Wonder Woman,” the sequel won’t take place during Wwi. It is, however, likely that the story will be set in the past. “It will take place somewhere between 1917 and 2017,” Warner Bros. Pictures President and Cco Toby Emmerich teased.

Jenkins has said that she wants the sequel to be set in the U.S. rather than Europe.

“Despite these confirmations of her involvement, however, Warner Bros. Pictures has not yet announced if Jenkins will direct the next ‘Wonder Woman’ film,” Variety writes. The delay is worrisome, but given the overwhelming success of “Wonder Woman” — and the good press for Warner Bros. for giving a female filmmaker the opportunity to tell this big-budget female-led story — we can only assume that the studio is working to get Jenkins signed on. And hopefully sweetening the deal with a huge raise.

Jenkins holds the record for highest domestic opening for a female director. Diana Prince’s origin story raked in $100.5 million during its opening weekend.

Warner Bros. president suggests Wonder Woman 2 could be set in the past, Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns writing script

20 June 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the success of Wonder Woman, attention is already starting to turn to the future – not just the character’s appearance in other Dceu properties, but the inevitable sequel to her own solo movie.

Wonder Woman was set during Wwi and naturally speculation has arisen of just when and where the sequel would take place. Luckily for us, Toby Emmerich, the Warner Bros. chief, has commented on the very subject, saying that it will likely be set in the past, however he was a little vague on the specifics.

Confirming to Variety that Wonder Woman 2 wouldn’t be another Wwi piece, he said rather coyly that: “It will take place somewhere between 1917 and 2017”.

That timeframe doesn’t rule out WWII as a potential setting, but also allows for a whole host of options, so really, thanks for nothing, Emmerich.

Meanwhile, DC Films co-chief Geoff Johns went on to reveal that »

Wonder Woman on track to break into top 10 highest grossing superhero films

20 June 2017 12:43 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Gal Gadot-headlined Wonder Woman is on track to become one of the top ten highest grossing superhero films of all time at the domestic box office.

The success of Wonder Woman has been well reported, with fans and audiences at last in tune with one another, and the movie bringing in the cash around the world.

According to Box Office Mojo, Wonder Woman has recently crossed $275 million in the Us which currently situates it at number 17 in the list of highest grossing superhero movies.

This puts the movie about $90 million behind the film currently in possession of that tenth spot, Deadpool. And according to analysis from Caped Crusader, Wonder Woman should be on track to surpass it.

Taking into consideration Wonder Woman’s impressively small weekend to weekend drops – just 43.3% from its first weekend to its second – and the very good word of mouth the film is receiving, »

Silver & Black Director Shares Her Connection With Wonder Woman’s Patty Jenkins

20 June 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gina Prince-Bythewood and Patty Jenkins have much in common. Both have critically acclaimed, independent movies on their resumes (Love & Basketball, The Secret Life Of Bees and Beyond The Lights in the case of Prince-Bythewood; Monster in the case of Jenkins), both have made their mark in directing television (Shots Fired and Cloak & Dagger; and The Killing, respectively), and both are now blazing an entirely new trail through the genre of comic book movies. So, it makes sense that these two accomplished filmmakers would connect, as Patty Jenkins enjoys the success of Wonder Woman, and Gina Prince-Bythewood prepares to film Silver & Black.

Silver & Black is a Sony comic book movie based upon Marvel characters that are associated with Spider-Man. While the web-slinger himself is now included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe over at Disney, Sony still hold the rights to him, and the characters that occur in his universe. Among them »

Gal Gadot’s salary for Wonder Woman, Batman v Superman and Justice League revealed

20 June 2017 1:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Reports are coming in from The Daily Dot that Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot has earned a salary of $300,000 per film for last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, her recently released solo feature, and the upcoming Justice League.

For comparison, Henry Cavill made a whopping $14 million for playing Superman in Man of Steel alone. However, while there may seem like a hugely unfair pay gap here, it’s also worth noting that Chris Evans was paid the same exact sum for Captain America: The First Avenger. On the flipside, Robert Downey Jr. made upwards to $50 million from The Avengers alone, not only because he is the primary star of the McU, but also because his contract has guarantees in place that includes backend compensation and bonuses for box office milestones.

Warner Bros. Looking To Cast Big Female Lead Opposite Gal Gadot In Wonder Woman 2

18 June 2017 2:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a busy, busy week for fans of the DC Extended Universe, with the internet being sent into a frenzy thanks to the latest slew of 4chan leaks. As is always the case, it’s best to take them all with a handful of salt, but if nothing else, these rumors have fuelled plenty of speculation and discussion, which is always fun to see and partake in.

Whether it’s the introduction of Supergirl in Man of Steel 2 or the teasing of Red Hood in The Batman, there’s been a lot to dig into lately, and though some of it reads like nothing more than fan fiction – and probably is just that – we’ll leave it up to you to decide which of these leaks are accurate and which are not.

Wonder Woman climbs to $570 million at the worldwide box office

18 June 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have lost top spot in the U.S. to Disney-Pixar’s Cars 3, but Warner Bros.’ DC blockbuster Wonder Woman continues to impress at the box office, having pushed its worldwide haul to $571.8 million worldwide.

Wonder Woman dropped just 30% domestically this weekend, grossing $40.8 million and pushing its North American cume to $274.6 million. The film has added a further $297.2 million internationally, and will soon overtake 2008’s Mamma Mia ($609.8 million) to become the highest-grossing movie from a female director.

In terms of the Dceu, Wonder Woman currently trails Man of Steel ($668.0 million), and while it will certainly face some stiff competition this coming week from Transformers: The Last Knight, it’s still possible that the Amazon Princess’ solo debut could overtake the Superman reboot.

Wonder Woman artwork shows the origin of the Amazons and Themyscira

Artist Houston Sharp has released his rather splendid paintings produced for Warner Bros.’ DC blockbuster Wonder Woman, which were used to illustrate Queen Hippolyta’s story to the young Diana about the origin of the Amazons, Ares’ betrayal of the gods and defeat at the hands of Zeus, and the creation of Themyscira.

“I had the pleasure and honor of working with Patty Jenkins and her team to create the animated painting at the beginning of Wonder Woman,” states Sharp. “It was a huge undertaking, but I had a small team of super-talented artists to help finish it on time, and Patty & Co. were very supportive along the way. Each panel was painted separately, and stitched together into one massive painting.
