"Wonder Woman" director Patty Jenkins is basking in the glow of the success of her film, which has already grossed more than $263 million after just one week at the box office. SOUNDBITE: Patty Jenkins, "Wonder Woman" director, saying (English): "Surreal and wonderful, surreal, wonderful and inspirational. So much darkness in the world, and yet when I saw the things that people wanted to talk about after they saw the movie, it moves me beyond words. When I'm saying, 'Wow you want to talk about that? You want to talk about love? You want to talk about heroes? You want to talk about truth? Wow.' I thought it would be a more, base experience. It's just wonderful." Audiences have responded well to the film. It has a 92 percent positive rating on review aggregator RottenTomatoes.com and has even been getting standing ovations during closing credits - news that seemed to surprise Jenkins. SOUNDBITE: Patty Jenkins, "Wonder Woman" director, saying (English): "Really? That's incredible. I don't even know what to say about that. Like really, I am absolutely stunned. I'm just stunned. I'm honored and I'm grateful. I don't know what else to say. That's crazy." "Wonder Woman" is on track for another successful weekend; it's estimated to take in $50 million dollars in ticket sales for North America alone.
