'Fifty Shades of Grey' is No. 1 Opening Ever for Female Director!

Fifty Shades of Grey has not only topped this weekend’s box office by far, but it’s officially the biggest opening ever for a female director!

According to THR, Sam Taylor-Johnson has made history adapting EL James‘ popular romance novel to screen with Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

The movie will gross a whopping $90.7 million in the U.S. by the end of the long Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day Weekend, with a record-breaking $158 million take overseas too.

The previous best domestic opening was Catherine Hardwicke‘s Twilight, which debuted to $69.6 million in November 2008.

The rest of the top five includes Frozen (Jennifer Lee, Chris Buck), Brave (Brenda Chapman, Mark Andrews), and Kung Fu Panda 2 (Jennifer Yuh Nelson).
