7 months and counting.
The first cinematic treatment for Wonder Woman (not counting a TV movie) is set to hit movie theaters on June 2, 2017. Yes, that’s 7 months away. And yet, incredibly, the intrigue for this groundbreaking film won’t lose intensity between now and then. The amazing Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and visionary director Patty Jenkins are leading this game-changing superhero film in an industry that’s currently dominated by male superheroes. The pop culture history, significance and impact of Superman and Batman (as just two examples) is remarkable and surreal.
These superheroes are societal icons.
Having said that, women and young girls need a superhero and icon akin to Superman/Kal-El/Clark Kent on the big screen and in toy stores to directly relate to. Thankfully, that day will be arriving soon. Until next June, please check out the brand new trailer for Wonder Woman.
This trailer lasso together a wonderful truth:
Wonder Woman will change the world in amazing ways we cannot (and can) imagine.
Many of us are still on a high (of excitement) from the new Wonder Woman trailer.
Yes, yes and yes.
The ending of said trailer was especially satisfying because the score/sound for Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (courtesy of Hans Zimmer) was brought back for continuity for Ms. Gadot’s solo movie. Thank goodness! Mr. Zimmer and Junkie XL produced a good score for Dawn of Justice, but his Wonder Woman theme is the undeniable high note of the soundtrack.
Here’s a refresher.
The Wonder Woman track is titled, “Is She with You?”
The answer should always be yes.
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.
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!
Forget Floyd Mayweather, Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao, Batman v. Superman is the ultimate fight.
Comic-Con in San Diego is the premier annual gathering of all things comic books, superheroes and fantasy adventures. Fans dress up in costumes with striking detail (completely normal) and is the destination for all things nerd. Movie stars will surprise fans, sometimes in full costume. In 2011, Andrew Garfield, dressed in a costume store Spider-Man outfit, surprised the crowd with a heartfelt thank you to the fans before he introduced his movie’s panel.
In recent years, the teams behind blockbuster movies within this popular, ever-growing genre have used this venue as a launching pad for their projects. Watching and participating in exclusive panels with the stars and directors of these films are the hottest tickets, which includes the great likelihood of witnessing first-looks and trailers before everybody else.
The new trailer is here, the new Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer is here.
Have a Wonderful Week!
