Wonder Woman Trailer Breakdown

This past weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed a barrage of footage upon Comic-Con with their presentation in Hall H. Thankfully for fans at home, every single piece of footage they showed at the convention ended up online, from the Justice League sizzle reel to The LEGO Batman Movie trailer. But honestly, the best thing to come out of the panel was the first trailer for Wonder Woman. You’ve probably watched it plenty of times by now, but we wanted to do a little breakdown of the footage we see in the tease for the first solo adventure of the DC Comics superhero.

star trek beyond spoiler review

In a summer seemingly defined by how disappointing so many movies have been, Star Trek Beyond is an oasis. It’s crowd-pleaser that has something on its mind, a sequel that’s not painfully beholden to massive franchise plans, and a story about the power of positivity overcoming darkness. In short, it’s a unique release for 2016…and the right antidote for 2016.

And since it’s Monday and you’ve had a chance to see it, let’s take a deeper dive into what makes this movie tick.

justice league trailer breakdown

On Saturday, Warner Bros. revealed the first footage from the upcoming Justice League to a packed audience at Comic-Con. And then it arrived online. It would be unfair to call this a trailer – it’s obviously been put together from a movie that isn’t close to being finished, focusing on simple dialogue scenes instead of the VFX shots and action beats you’d expect from this sort of thing.

And yet, it still looks promising! There’s an attitude on display here that simply wasn’t present in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which certainly lends credence to all of that buzz about director Zack Snyder attempting a serious course correction for the DC movie universe.

So how about we go through this thing frame by frame? I’m sure we’ll find something to talk about.
