Wonder Woman 1984 Honest Trailer

Wonder Woman 1984 arrived in theaters and on HBO Max on Christmas Day, giving a nice holiday gift to fans stuck at home and a big middle finger to the future of movie theaters. But many who watched Wonder Woman 1984 felt like they got screwed too, because just like the wishes at the center of the DC Comics sequel, it came with some unsavory consequences. And as the Wonder Woman 1984 Honest Trailer illustrates, it’s not just the creepy use of a random man as a vessel for Steve Trevor to fulfill the love and lust she has for Steve Trevor. Read More »

Wonder Woman 1984 Clips

Wonder Woman 1984 might have been flying high in its opening weekend, with the biggest post-pandemic opening yet, but it experienced a steep drop at domestic theaters in its second weekend. But whether that’s down to the unusual day-and-date release on HBO Max or poor word-of-mouth buzz is still uncertain.

wonder woman 1984 shield

In the midst of all the tomfoolery and shenanigans taking place during Wonder Woman 1984, I totally missed the fact that Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman never once uses her iconic shield or sword – two things she used in the first film. She uses her magical lasso a lot, but the shield/sword combo never makes an appearance. Like all things in movies, this was a deliberate choice, and star Gal Gadot has revealed why the Patty Jenkins-directed sequel nixed Wonder Woman’s weapons.

2020 nice movies

Let’s be honest: 2020 was a bad year. Bad for the world, bad for the economy, and bad for the soul. Not to even mention the movie industry, which suffered blows from theater closings and studio delays. Entertainment seemed to be the last thing on people’s minds, and yet, entertainment is what many people turned to in the long months of lockdown. Comfort television became consumed as frequently as comfort food, and many people — after at first feeding into their paranoia with early viewings of Contagion — started to seek out the same in films too.

And, perhaps coincidentally, Hollywood rose to meet their demands. It became par for the course for studios to release their films early to PVOD or streaming, though for the most part there wouldn’t be any one defining theme among them — just the fact that people could see theatrical releases from the comfort of their homes was pleasing enough.

But the films that would capture the feeling of the times began to hit in the summer, and that’s when “nice” started to become the norm.

wonder woman 1984 box office

Wonder Woman 1984 hit HBO Max on Christmas Day, but it also opened in theaters. This means for the first time in a while we have some box office numbers for a big studio movie, and guess what? Those numbers aren’t too shabby! To be clear, Wonder Woman 1984‘s opening weekend box office haul would be a disappointment in a normal year, but this isn’t a normal year. At the moment, Wonder Woman 1984 is looking at a $17 million domestic opening – good enough to bolster movie theater stocks. But there’s still a long way to go.

Wonder Woman 1984 Opening Scenes

Wonder Woman 1984 opens with two different action sequences that serve two very different purposes. The first is a flashback sequence showing a young Diana (Lilly Aspell) competing in an Olympic-style competitive event on Themyscira, and the second brings us into Washington D.C. in 1984 with a vibrant, cartoonish sort of jewelry heist that adult Diana (Gal Gadot) stops in a shopping mall. However, one of them almost didn’t make the cut because Warner Bros. Pictures wanted director Patty Jenkins to trim the two and a half-hour runtime by getting rid of one of them. Read More »
