Gone are the goatee and helmet, but Game of Thrones and The Mandalorian heartthrob Pedro Pascal is indeed in the new trailer for next year’s Wonder Woman 1984. His Maxwell Lord is a capitalist known for mythmaking. “Think about finally having everything you’ve always wanted,” he says in the trailer, in a television broadcast over ’80s scenes with boxy cars and shopping malls.
In the short trailer, Pascal captures the comic books’ Lord, a smarmy-smooth negotiator who acts as a thorn in the side of both Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and her allies in the Justice League.

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)
The 2010s were a banner decade for female directors. Despite the still abysmally low number of women working behind the camera, women directors have made significant strides in Hollywood and across the globe, earning as much or even more acclaim — and now, as much money — as their male counterparts.
In just the past decade, which came off of Kathryn Bigelow becoming the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Director, Greta Gerwig became the new generation’s rising star, Patty Jenkins became the highest-paid female director working in Hollywood, and acclaimed indie filmmakers like Chloe Zhao and Ava DuVernay used their weight to land high-profile superhero jobs or boost other rising diverse directors. We still have a long way to go, but the glass ceiling has already started to accumulate plenty of cracks.
So without further ado, here are the best female directed movies of the decade, listed in alphabetical order.
