After years on the drawing board, the Wonder Woman movie is finally slated to hit theaters on June 2, marking not only the latest entry in DC’s cinematic universe, but also the highest-profile standalone comic-book film fronted by a female superhero. The film tells the origin of the Amazon warrior, with Gal Gadot returning to the role she originated in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film opens in theaters on Friday, so Yahoo Movies pulled together the best photos available so you can get up to speed on all the key characters and settings from the film.
Said star Gal Gadot: "I think it's so important that girls and boys will have a strong female figure to look up to and be inspired by."
The 'Wonder Woman' cast and crew on some of the more interesting comic-book plot lines
Wonder Woman is the first major female-led superhero movie to come out in more than a decade and unquestionably the most anticipated one in comic-book film history. While Gal Gadot stars as Amazonian warrior Diana Prince, Chris Pine plays Steve Trevor, an Air Force officer who in some of the trailers is seen being defended by Wonder Woman, as Superman once protected Lois Lane.
Star Trek Beyond isn’t considered a comedy — yet thanks to all the witticisms in a script co-written by Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), the latest sequel decidedly funnier than your average endeavor on the Enterprise.
The Enterprise is going beyond Star Trek Beyond. With the latest big-screen episode in the vaunted 50-year-old franchise still days away, Paramount announced Monday that there would be fourth installment featuring J.J. Abrams’ rebooted cast. Although the studio had moved to lock up stars Chris Pine (Kirk) and Zachary Quinto (Spock) to additional films over a year ago, there had been some question about the future following the troubled production of Beyond.
Given that it was almost universally agreed that Gal Gadot’s appearance as Wonder Woman was the principal saving grace of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ it’s hard to believe that not so long ago many vocal fans were questioning the Israeli model-turned-actress’s suitability for the role. Having survived her baptism of fire, Gadot has just finished work on the ‘Wonder Woman’ solo movie, which is due in cinemas in less than eleven months time – and now, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we have four new looks at the star in action. It makes sense that her suit would be considerably less tarnished, given ‘Wonder Woman’ is set 100 years earlier during World War I, and sees the immortal Amazon princess Diana visit the mortal world for the first time.
The Star Trek crew has adventure in their soul… and a song in their heart. After infiltrating the shoot of Star Trek Beyond and snooping around the sets (full disclosure: we were invited), we made a startling discovery. “We’re on set 15 hours a day, three hours of which is actually shooting so you have to find ways to entertain yourself,” Chris Pine, a.k.a.
Yahoo gets onboard for an inside look at the upcoming blockbuster "Star Trek Beyond" with stars Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and more.
“There’s a lot more story and a lot more character stuff and a lot more what I would call ‘Star Trek stuff,’” Pegg told British website HeyUGuys shortly after the trailer dropped. Now, Team Trek has hit the reset button and is back with a revamped preview you can watch above. The second trailer got its world premiere Friday night at a fan celebration event on the Paramount Pictures studio lot in Hollywood before finding its way online.
One thing abundantly clear in the initial clip released Tuesday of the movie version of the iconic female hero: The campy vibe of the old Lynda Carter TV series is ancient history. The new sword-swinging warrior princess, played by Gal Gadot, means serious business. Hard to believe, but that will be the first solo Wonder Woman feature film in the character’s 75-year history.
Chris Pine and Ben Foster race to save their ship in this exclusive clip for Walt Disney Picture’s upcoming high-seas disaster drama The Finest Hours. The film is based on the true story of a U.S. Coast Guard team that braved exceptionally treacherous waters to try and save crew members stranded on two wrecked oil tankers during a severe storm in 1952. (Don’t look up the Wikipedia entry if you want to keep the film’s ending unspoiled!)

‘Star Trek Beyond,’ the third movie in the reboot series, wrapped production this week in Dubai. It won’t hit theaters until July 22, 2016, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate all the snaps from the set. Click through to see the images the cast and crew of the good ship Enterprise shared along the way.
Warner Bros. and DC have gone above and beyond to instil a feminine touch on ‘Wonder Woman’s’ upcoming production. Not only did they hire Michelle MacLaren to direct the blockbuster, but when she dropped out they replaced her with Patty Jenkins. In fact, with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine due to begin filming ‘Wonder Woman’ with Warner Bros. and DC this November, producer Deborah Snyder has revealed that they’ve hired as many female members of crew as possible.
