a wrinkle in time trailer

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay, the director of Selma and Middle of Nowhere, has a great grasp of drama that, arguably, not a lot of directors making $100 million movies possess. Her name on Disney’s adaptation of Madeline L’Engle‘s 1962 novel “A Wrinkle in Time” has us excited. If one director could make Meg’s journey through the universe have both emotion and spectacle, it’s DuVernay.

Below, watch the A Wrinkle in Time trailer.

Selma and 13th director Ava DuVernay is making history as the first black woman to make a $100 million movie with Disney’s live-action adaptation of Madeline L’Engle‘s 1962 novel A Wrinkle in Time. Now the Mouse House has unveiled some dazzling first-look images from the movie, and from these photos alone, it’s clear the director put every penny of that budget to good use.

wonder woman 2

Wonder Woman is still persisting at the box office, breaking records and beating other superhero numbers, with no signs of stopping. So naturally Warner Bros. and DC Films are already looking ahead to Wonder Woman 2, though plot and crew details have remained in the dark — until now.

The sequel to Wonder Woman will reportedly be another historical adventure, trading World War I for the waning days of the Cold War. The sequel will feature the return of Gal Gadot as Diana of Themyscira, and possibly another beloved character from the first film.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Trailer

Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer for a series revival back in 2015 after development of a sequel to the 2001 Sundance comedy hit was happening for years. Instead of making good upon the promise of a 10-year reunion teased at the end of the movie, the series went back to the first day at Camp Firewood, which was all the more ridiculous simply because it had a cast of actors and actress in their 30s and 40s playing teenagers. But now the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is finally coming.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is a new eight episode continuation of the goofy camp comedy that brings back (almost) all of the original cast members again as we flash forward to their lives in 1991. It looks just as insane as the prequel series was, and it even has some new cast members joining the fun.

Wonder Woman

Recreating the Diana Prince-led group photo from Batman v Superman in Wonder Woman wasn’t quick and simple. Because it was going to be a part of Zack Snyder‘s film, which came out four months after the new DCEU movie started production, director Patty Jenkins had to shoot the photo first. Then, when Jenkins and everybody were back together on set, they had to recreate the photo just as it was shown in Snyder’s film.

The origin of the Wonder Woman photo scene is a surprisingly interesting look at how various movies in an ongoing franchise have to operate together.

wonder woman spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.)

It’s astounding that in this day and age, when superheroes are either disillusioned or self-deprecating, that we can have a hero like Wonder Woman. In the bleak DC Cinematic Universe, where nihilism reigns supreme, here we have a hero who champions the ideas of hope, compassion, and goodness.

Diana (Gal Gadot) is not dissimilar from the Disney princesses, who have long been heroes of overwhelming empathy. They are aspirational figures who exist in an elevated reality — fairy tales themselves are metaphorical by nature, and rarely depict anything other than a black and white reality. This is Diana at the beginning of the film, the embodiment of the ultimate Disney princess, for all the gifts and faults that they have — though thankfully without the frequently troublesome depiction of an “evil” mother or stepmother figure commonly seen in fairy tales.

Wonder Woman reshoots

Three weeks ago, Wonder Woman was projected to make $65 million its opening weekend. Patty Jenkins‘ already beloved comic book movie surpassed early box-office expectations by over $35 million, making it the highest domestic opening for a female director. She knocked the DCEU movie out of the park. Jenkins didn’t leave any scenes on the cutting room floor, either, and only did reshoots for one scene, which built up to one the movie’s most inspiring, action-heavy sequences.

Below, learn more about the quick Wonder Woman reshoots.

Wonder Woman Sequel

Her time has come. Wonder Woman has finally been given her own movie on the big screen. After making her debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, actress Gal Gadot has takes the lead in Patty Jenkins’ superhero blockbuster. With the weight of what some see as the missteps of the DC Extended Universe on her shoulders, Wonder Woman probably had more pressure than she should have on her first time out.

The good news is many seem to agree that she takes it all in stride and has no problem holding that weight and throwing it aside like the tank she throws across a town square in the movie. Find out what the /Film crew thought about Wonder Woman, and then sound off with your own thoughts in the comments. Read More »

wonder woman review

Much like its heroine, Wonder Woman manages to soar to some sublime heights. There are sequences that demand to be gazed at and the action — specifically the Amazon women in battle, soaring through the air — make slo-mo seem fresh for the first time since 300. The cast is charming, with each character afforded a particular grace note, and Gal Gadot shines as the goddess at the center of the whole affair. But Diana of Themyscira has to go through some growing pains before really becoming a hero, and so does the film.
