Wonder Woman

"Wonder Woman" brought in more than $40 million this past weekend; that follows its more than $100 million opening weekend, which was the highest-grossing opening weekend ever for a movie directed by a woman.

The film "Get Out," directed by Jordan Peele, has brought in more than $175 million since its release earlier this year.

And, that that has my next guest wondering if there could be more opportunities for women and people of color behind the camera.
