Lebanon bans 'Wonder Woman' movie from premiering

Lebanon has officially banned the Warner Bros. tentpole Wonder Woman hours before the film was set to premiere in Beirut. The decision was made by the Lebanese government, taking issue with the fact that the film’s star, Gal Gadot, is Israeli and served in the military. Lebanon is officially at war with Israel.

The movie was only scheduled to play in 15 locations. It is tracking to open domestically at $87 million and is expected to do brisk business overseas. The ban was decided by a six-member Ministry of Economy committee.
