Wonder Woman Trailer (2017)
Trailer for Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Danny Huston and Robin Wright.
The Amazonian princess-warrior Diana left her lush tropical island to dwell in our urban cityscapes of glass and steel. Tutored in the ways of the Greek warriors, and outfitted with incredible gifts the Goddess bestowed upon her people, she becomes Paradise Island's emissary to civilization.
When you are behind a number of huge films (and franchises), it is only a matter of time before a director can't resist putting himself in front of the camera. Though Lucas said he'd never do it, he finally ended up playing some alien guy (at the Broadway event) in Revenge of the Sith. In regards to Wonder Woman, Zack Snyder, who is producing, will have a cameo as a World War I soldier. Since directors also get a big kick out of killing themselves off in their films, our money is on the chances of Snyder's soldier getting blown away in the scene.
Though Gal Gadot was a quick choice to player the Amazon warrior, first rumors suggested it was because of her heritage. Ummm no, as she was born in Israel and, when hoping for something Amazonian, she's actually Polish. All that matters is that she's got the Wonder look.
When it comes to the adaptation of Wonder Woman, this is one project that can be stamped with "Development Hell". Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) was the first to attempt to bring the story to cinemas all the way back in 1996. That went nowhere. Five years later in 2001, scribe Todd Alcott took a crack at the script. He was replaced in less than two years by Laeta Kalogridis. Tack on another two years, and Joss Whedon was hired to not only direct, but also take his own crack at writing a script. Remember those Wonder Woman promo posters about that time? He dropped the project in 2007.
With Warner Bros, the franchise's next big opportunity was in 2014 with Michelle MacLaren coming onboard to direct. She dropped out only a few months later, citing creative differences.
And now here we are, with the adaptation set for a 2017 tentpole release. It took a long time, but Warner Bros and DC finally got there. Let's just hope it was all worth it.
Holy crap. This looks awesome! After all of Warner Bros' failed DC attempts to impress critics and audiences, the one film that might do it has a female protagonist. Women power!
The Wonder Woman trailer ups the ante over the Comic Con version we saw last summer. With a few more months of production complete, the latest preview makes it a point to showcase all the brand new visuals. Well, not all, but you get my meaning.
What I'm digging is the whole World War I period. We don't get to see too much of this event in big budget films, let alone comic book adaptations, so this is definitely refreshing. And the timing couldn't be more perfect, considering that EA's Battlefield 1 was released just last month. The game has brought more attention to World War I battles, which might lead to additional interest in Wonder Woman.
Not that it should matter, considering that this film is one of the most highly anticipated for 2017, but every little bit helps.
And kudos for the ultra violent action. There is something incredibly cool about watching Gal Gadot tear shit up.
