Happy Monday!

Cowboys use a lasso, but not like this…

Wonder Woman has never hit the silver screen before as the lead character. Actress Gal Gadot’s superhero of power, grace, wisdom and wonder was introduced (in spectacular fashion) in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year. In 2017, the world will finally be given the complete cinematic treatment to the female equivalent to Superman.

Long overdue.

The first trailer, as seen above, fittingly premiered at Comic-Con this past Saturday afternoon. A full trailer and not a teaser trailer. That’s not nothing, ladies and gentlemen. Although, considering the extensive presence of Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice, the secret was effectively out of the bag from a few months ago. And understanding the nature of trailers and the tightly choreographed 2-3 minute snapshot for any given film, the verdict for Wonder Woman won’t be determined by Juror #6 (shout-out to last Friday’s post) and the public until the credits roll in the summer of next year. However, upon first glance, people will be excited for this movie.

Oh, and this other small, independent film of a similar theme also released its first full trailer at this year’s Comic-Con.

One thing’s for certain: Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman proves there’s some justice in this world.

Have an Awesome Week!

Is Today Friday? Shore Is

Wisdom from Pauly Shore?

This might happen.

Friday night is the time to go out and have fun. With the weekend comes a certain comfort level for trying new things and letting creativity flow. The tricky balancing act is recognizing and acknowledging the warning signs along the way, however small and seemingly inconsequential.

Enter Pauly Shore from Jury Duty.

Whether you technically ride a bus or are selected for jury duty, hopefully you have a great weekend while being aware of your surroundings and limits.

Of course, make sure to have a few good laughs.

Then take a seat and enjoy the ride.

King Tut’s Famous Stand (Up)

What do you get when a 33-year-old man steps on a stage in front of a large crowd of people in a three-piece white suit?

And no, this person isn’t Colonel Sanders.

Stand-up comedy is not traditionally a profession known for its formality, except for hosts of late-night television. Slightly surprising, there’s no singular formula for succeeding in stand-up comedy. Despite the limited space to perform, react (a critically important quality) and be creative, the best comedians figure out ways to distinguish themselves and rise above what we’ve heard and seen before. These gifted individuals show audiences unique bits, share insightful perspectives and connect on levels far deeper than laughter.

Steve Martin is one of these comedic geniuses.

That’s the rarely seen Double Throwback Thursday, starring Steve Martin in 1978 and Egyptian pharaoh King Tut.

They’re just two wild and crazy guys.

RIP Garry Marshall

He was one of the good guys in Hollywood.

Garry Marshall, the beloved TV creator, producer and movie director, has died at 81 years of age. He was the man behind Happy Days, The Odd Couple, Pretty Woman, Beaches and many other popular films. A few of these movies (Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve, Mother’s Day) featured fun, interweaving story lines with star-studded casts. The phrase “star-studded casts” was no exaggeration.

And the actors and actresses in his films always performed well because Garry wanted them to perform well.

Garry Marshall was one of the good guys in Hollywood.

RIP Garry Marshall.
