Gal Gadot is an Israeli actress and fashion model. Gal Gadot was born in Rosh Ha’Ayin, Israel, to a Jewish family (from Poland, Austria, Germany, and Czechoslovakia). Gal Gadot served in the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) for two years, and won the Miss Israel title in 2004.

Gal Gadot began modeling in the late 2000’s, and made her movie debut in the fourth film of the Fast and Furious franchise, Fast & Furious (2009), as Gisele. Gal Gadot’s role was expanded in the sequels Fast Five (2011) and Fast & Furious 6 (2013), in which her character was romantically linked to Han Seoul-Oh (Sung Kang). In the films, Gal Gadot performed her own stunts. Gal Gadot also appeared in the 2010 films Date Night (2010) and Knight and Day (2010).

In early December 2013, Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman in the superhero movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), and filming began in 2014 for a March 2016 release.

Gal Gadot received swordsmanship, Kung Fu, kickboxing, Capoeira, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training in preparation for her role as Wonder Woman. As a result, Gal Gadot’s performance as the superhero, which is the first time for the character in a movie, was hailed as one of the best parts of the otherwise poorly received Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film.

What Superman III Was Supposed To Be & What Happened To Supergirl?

Superman III is a British-American 1983 superhero film directed by Richard Lester, based on the DC Comics character Superman. It is the third film in the Superman film series and the last Superman film to be produced by Alexander Salkind and Ilya Salkind. The film features a cast which includes Christopher Reeve, Richard Pryor, Annette O’Toole, Annie Ross, Pamela Stephenson, Robert Vaughn, Marc McClure, and Gavan O’Herlihy. The film is followed by Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, released on July 24, 1987.

Although the film still managed to recoup its budget of $39 million, it was less successful than the first two Superman movies, both financially and critically. While harsh criticism focused on the film’s comedic and campy tone, as well as the casting and performance of Pryor, the special effects and Christopher Reeve’s performance as a temporarily corrupted Superman were praised.

Aquaman (Jason Momoa) Ticket Sales Pass $1 Billion Dollars Worldwide – #2 DC Movie Ever

Warner Bros/DC’s Aquaman joined the billion-dollar club worldwide this session, now counting $732.4M at the international box office and $1.02B global. The milestone makes the James Wan-directed origins story the 5th movie released in 2018 to get across $1B, behind Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Incredibles 2. It is also WB’s 2nd highest-grossing movie ever overseas and the 5th title in WB history to reach $1B.

The Jason Momoa-starrer has been riding a huge wave offshore since it first traveled to China in early December and now joins The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises as the only DC pics to the billion-dollar threshold. This weekend it passed The Dark Knight globally; TDKR made $1.08B during its run. Japan, although it is not a huge DC hub, is still to release on February 8.

Wan is now breathing some rarefied air, having two movies gross over a billion. The other is Universal’s Furious 7 from 2015.

He said today, “Firstly, Massive love and thank you to the fans and audiences around the world. Humbled by the way you’ve embraced Aquaman and how it has resonated on a global scale. I’ll forever be indebted to Jason for turning Aquaman into one of the coolest, cinematic superheroes ever, and becoming the gold standard for this character for generations to come. Huge thank you to the amazing cast — Amber, Patrick, Nicole, Yahya, Willem, Temuera, Dolph, Ludi — for breathing life into our beloved characters. And, of course, this movie wouldn’t be what it is without the incredible achievement of everyone involved, from the heads of department to every single crew member, who demanded utmost excellence in helping design and create this cinematic experience.”

WB’s Worldwide Distribution President, Ron Sanders, added, “We’re thrilled audiences around the world have embraced Aquaman in such a big, big way. Jason, the filmmakers and the team at DC have delivered a film that people love, and we are so appreciative of their support.” The film helped WB hit double milestones in 2018, scoring a studio record $5.57B worldwide and $3.62B international. Even rivals have marveled at the success of the underwater adventure which has breathed new life into the DC brand. While it got knocked out of the No. 1 position last weekend (its 5th in overseas release), Aquaman previously held the title for four in a row.

The studio movie that’s coming in again above Aqua is Paramount’s Bumblebee which tuned up another $35.6M in 64 markets to cume $256.3M internationally. Still buzzing along nicely in China, the Transformers spinoff crossed $100M there during the frame and now counts $10M from IMAX in just that market.

IMAX also set a new milestone with Fox’s Bohemian Rhapsody. In Japan, it has become the format’s biggest grosser ever there, topping Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with $8.5M. The full Japanese gross is $81.5M.

Elsewhere, Sony’s Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has crossed $300M global while Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns is nearing the the three-century mark. WB’s A Star Is Born also hit a new high with $200M internationally and $403.5M worldwide.

Next weekend, Disney rolls out M Night Shyamalan’s Glass internationally. Universal has domestic in what is a wide day-and-date release.

Breakdowns on the films above and more have been updated below. (International Box Office is slightly abridged today.)
