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.

We run through the best and worst sketches of the Chris Pine hosted Saturday Night Live after the jump. Read More »

Wonder Woman clip

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.

And we will, with Wonder Woman hitting theaters in a month. But first, the newest TV spot shows us more of Diana of Themyscira than we’ve ever seen before.

Hell or High Water pic

David Mackenzie’s sweaty western heist film Hell or High Water was ripped straight from the headlines last year, depicting the aftermath of the mortgage crisis as a Robin Hood-style revenge thriller. It resonated with audiences and critics alike, earning four Oscar nods and catapulting Mackenzie to a higher level of recognition.

For his follow-up film, Mackenzie is looking to reteam with stars Chris Pine and Ben Foster for Outlaw King, an “epic period drama” about Robert the Bruce. And yes, before we go any further, Pine is in talks to play the Scottish king. Take a second to let that sink in.

Star Trek 4 Development

News of Star Trek 4 officially being in development first surfaced last summer. Producer J.J. Abrams confirmed work on the sequel and revealed it would somehow bring back Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk, the father of James T. Kirk who perished in exciting opening sequence of the first installment of the reboot that established a whole new timeline in the Star Trek universe. Since then all we’ve heard is vague hype about the sequel, and it sounds like the cast is unsure whether it will actually happen.

In a recent interview, Star Trek franchise star Zachary Quinto says that he’s still waiting for the script to be completed, and despite being hopeful that he’ll be able to reprise his role as Mr. Spock, the movie doesn’t seem to have been greenlit yet.

Wonder Woman Tone

Having seen 16 minutes of Wonder Woman, as well as a presentation of the events in the first act of the film, we finally have a good idea of what all the key players in the film are doing. Obviously there’s our superheroine Diana Prince, but there are also the Amazons who raised her, a few villains, some helpful heroes, and more.

We’ve put together a Wonder Woman character breakdown based on what we’ve learned about the movie so far, including some speculation on what might be in store for a couple of the characters. Read More »

Wonder Woman Plot Details

Wonder Woman is coming to theaters this summer, with Gal Gadot starring in the DC Comics superhero’s first solo outing after debuting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With the exception of a photo revealing Diana Prince posing with some soldiers in World War I, her life remains shrouded in mystery in that film. But that’s about to change.

Director Patty Jenkins is giving us Wonder Woman’s origin story. While comic book movie fans may be tired of finding out about how these superheroes began, Wonder Woman has never been given this treatment on the big screen before. It helps that she has one of the more unique origin stories in comic book lore, so this won’t feel like we’re treading familiar territory.

Warner Bros. invited /Film to their post-production facility in London, England for a story presentation (as well as a preview of footage) that laid out some new Wonder Woman plot details, explaining what the first act of the film will entail.

If you want to go into Wonder Woman fresh, then stop reading! There may be some spoilers below, depending on what you don’t want to know about the movie. Read More »
