Gal Gadot is Number One.

In spite of a considerable campaign directed against her by the usual suspects,  Wonder Woman Gal Gadot has spent her first week at No. 1 on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart.
The Top Actors chart is a ranking of the most popular actors on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex. The chart’s methodology blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. 
Much of the Arab world  cannot stand any Israeli succeeding in anything and as a result Wonder Woman has been banned in Lebanon, Tunisia and in Qatar. In spite of this, as of July 2nd the movie has grossed  $708,444,475  internationally.
This counts as BDS fail
By any metric, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman has been a success. The film enjoyed thelargest-ever opening weekend for a film directed by a woman. It’s now the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman in the world. It got an “A” from Cinemascore viewers, and overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics. The profound wave of positivity is particularly striking when compared to other DC Comics Extended Universe sibling films, includingBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.
And now, less than a month after its theatrical release, Wonder Woman has overtaken the full-release box-office take of Warner Bros.’ other DCEU films in the United States, The Wrapreports. So far, Wonder Woman has earned $330.5 million in domestic release, to Batman v Superman’s previous DCEU record of $330.3 million. Notably, Wonder Woman’s earnings have hit that mark after less than a month in theaters, while it took Batman v Superman 84 days.

screw tunisia, lebanon and qatar. tunisia and lebanon are nothing but islamist cesspool failed states and i'm glad to see the arab gulf states turn on qatar i won't shed any tears over any of the said parties if that situation turns really ugly. oh i've been having such a good time rubbing the success of this film in the ugly faces of all the Jew hating BDSholes on youtube in recent weeks indeed this is such an epic BDS fail. i love it that Gal does not shy away from her Jewish roots or her commitment to Zionism. my wife and i loved the movie and i'm really glad i was able to contribute to it's success by us seeing it on the opening weekend. we can't wait to see Gal Gadot again as Wonder Woman in the up coming Justice League movie later this year. in the mean time i've bought some nice Wonder Woman merchandise including a gorgeous charm bracelet for my wife
