For a new IP starring the little known Gal Gadot a £6.1 million opening is fantastic, although Chris Pine does brings some star power and the film easily takes over at the top of the UK box office.
Compared to the previous 2 films in the series, Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel it is far lower but the reviews have been far better and this film could have a good run ahead of it.
With Justice League coming on November this year it could be a good year for Warner and the DC property it so wants to be a rival to Marvel Cinematic Universe but is lacking to date.
Falling from the top to number 3 this week is Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge, a weekend take of £2 million brings the films total to £13 million.
Worth noting is for the week Monday - Sunday Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge would have still been number 1 with a weekly take of £7.7 million.
Also making its debut this week is Baywatch, a slapstick retelling of the 90s TV show, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zak Efron the film takes £4.6 million, not bad really but not good up against a superhero movie.
This week has Smurfs The Lost Village as the longest running film with 9 weeks while Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 is the top total grossing movie with £39.6 million after 6 weeks.

With man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice not really setting the box office alight the way many had hoped we now have the DC movie the fans have been longing for as Wonder Woman pleases critics and fans alike.
After a week atop the global box office last week Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge falls to number 2 with $95.4 million from 55 countries, the films tepid reception with critics and fans has done the film no favours and it cant compete with a superhero juggernaut.
We will have to see if this means a slow down or end to the series, Disney has got used to $1 billion plus grosses for the series and this will most likely come no-where near that figure at the film reaches the half billion mark globally.
Making a decent debut at number 4 is Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, $24.2 million from 9 countries isn't bad for a film with little hype.
