Hillary Clinton Finally Made It To See Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman has been a big winner this summer. The DC movie has already made nearly $800 million worldwide, and this week was the first week since its release that it didn't make enough profit in the US to crack our top movies chart. (That's quite a long time to be doing well.) Since it came out, Hillary Clinton has been talking about her goal of seeing the movie, thanks to the message it is sending women around the world. And she finally got to see the DCEU film when a special screening of it came up. Check it out.
Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill Clinton get the VIP treatment pretty much anywhere they go, so it's no surprise that they got to attend a "special screening" of Wonder Woman at the Alamo Drafthouse in New York City. The news comes just a few weeks after Hillary Clinton was notably asked about the superhero movie. When questioned about whether she'd seen the movie back in June (opens in new tab), Clinton noted that she had not seen the movie yet, but wanted to for a variety of reasons.
This isn't the first time the Alamo Drafthouse has made the news thanks to a Wonder Woman screening. When Wonder Woman first came out, the major theater chain made the news thanks to creating a few women-only fan screenings. There were myriad opinions about that event, and it definitely put a spotlight on the showings. Now, Hillary Clinton has gotten her own special screening.
One thing is not debatable about Wonder Woman's theatrical run--how much money the movie has made. In the weeks since Wonder Woman first hit theaters, the movie has broken records and been a behemoth at the box office. The film's second week at the box office didn't dip as much as second week films often do. Patty Jenkins' movie has also beat out nearly all of the other DC movies at the box office. It has risen the ranks to beat both Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Right now, only The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises have grossed more domestically. And Wonder Woman isn't even done with its theatrical run, yet.
There's plenty more from DC coming up, too. Wonder Woman will be back as part of Justice League, which hits theaters later this year. In addition, Aquaman is currently coming together. I'm not sure that Hillary Clinton will be able to make room for more DC movies in the coming months, as those two films don't have quite the same ring as the first female superheroine on the big screen, but we'll let you know if any other famous figures see the movies. For now, here's what we know about what is coming up.
