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.

Anticipation is high for Wonder Woman, not simply because it is the first female superhero movie of the modern age of comic book films, but also because it is a ray of hope for the abysmally-reviewed DC Extended Universe movies, stretching from Man of Steel to Suicide Squad. With not a fresh tomato rating in sight for any of the past DCEU movies, could Wonder Woman break the trend? The glass ceiling, so to speak?

Critics have spoken: Wonder Woman is quite simply, wonderful. Director Patty Jenkins‘ first foray into the DCEU and Wonder Woman’s (played by Gal Gadot) first solo foray onto the big screen is a runaway success, presenting an earnest and thrilling superhero movie with old-school charms that everyone seems to agree is the DCEU’s best movie yet.

Wonder Woman Poster

Thanks to the success of Marvel Studios, whenever a franchise starter comes around, there is usually some kind of credits scene that teases what will hopefully be the next chapter in the franchise. However, when it comes to the films of the DC Extended Universe, Warner Bros. Pictures hasn’t always teased what’s coming next in their comic book franchises. Both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opted out of having credits scenes, though Suicide Squad did tease what’s to come in Justice League this fall. But what about Wonder Woman?

Warner Bros. Pictures releases Wonder Woman in just under two weeks, but should moviegoers stick around after the credits start rolling for a tease of either a Wonder Woman sequel or the arrival of Justice League? Read More »

The early buzz on the movie is off the charts, and it sounds like the superhero’s first solo foray on the big screen is exactly what fans of the character have been waiting to see for decades.

Warner Bros.

In these six clips you’ll get some extended sequences from the movie, more of a glimpse into the natural, charming humor that comes from Diana and Steve, and more.

Wonder Woman

Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe has been a thoroughly mixed bag so far, dividing critics and audiences alike. Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad were all financial hits, but the mixed-to-negative reactions suggested that something was amiss. What had to be done to get everyone to rally around one of their films?

Make a Wonder Woman movie directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, it seems. The first reactions to the new film have arrived and they’re almost unanimously positive, showering praise on both of the film’s lead performers as well as its hopeful and inspiring tone.

Wonder Woman Trailer

We’re a little over two weeks out from Wonder Woman becoming the first female superhero to get her own big screen adventure all to herself. The marketing onslaught is in full swing, and box office tracking has the opening weekend landing anywhere between $65 million on the lower end up to $105 million on the higher end. More than likely, it will end up somewhere in the middle around the $85 million mark, but two weeks is a lot of time for a studio to convince audiences to see a movie.

The United States isn’t the only place where Wonder Woman is getting a huge push. In fact, our latest look at Diana Prince’s adventures in World War I comes from a Chinese trailer that has plenty of new footage from the action on the battlefield. However, Warner Bros. Pictures is still keeping Ares hidden away from sight for the time being, though there is the tiniest glimpse of the villain from a distance in this trailer.

Chris Pine Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend brought Chris Pine to Studio 8H in 30 Rockefeller Plaza to host Saturday Night Live for the first time. Since Gal Gadot is currently pregnant with her second child, her Wonder Woman co-star got the honor of hosting the show as a way to help promote the comic book movie. Those hoping for a Wonder Woman sketch during SNL were disappointed, but for those who have always wanted to hear Chris Pine sing over and over again, the sketch show delivered plenty of that.

Diana just met Steve Trevor, but she’s already taking bullets for him. Or rather, deflecting bullets for him. Because one of Wonder Woman’s many special gifts are her iconic bullet-proof bracelets.

In a new clip from Wonder Woman (debuted by Chris Pine on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), we get a full, uninterrupted peek at the alley fight scene in which Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman saves Steve from a bullet and quickly incapacitates the goons attacking them.
