The actress took to her Instagram saying she had “a special message to my fans” and posted a sweet video thanking them for their support over the film’s opening weekend. The Patty Jenkins-directed film hit theaters on Friday and became a critical and box office success, breaking records for the biggest opening weekend for a film directed by a woman.
“I just wanted to take a moment and thank you,” Gadot starts out in the video. “Thank you for making this weekend the most amazing weekend and craziest weekend I’ve ever had in my life.”
Gadot has been on a whirlwind press tour as she promotes the iconic superhero’s first stand-alone movie. Wonder Woman had a $103 million opening in the U.S. and has since made $12 million more, bringing its domestic total to $115 million. Overseas, the movie has made $125 million for a global gross of $240 million.
