There was one Oscar hopeful who really stood out on the red carpet of Saturday’s Governors Awards in Hollywood. Brooklynn Prince, the 7-year-old ingénue of Sean Baker’s acclaimed drama The Florida Project, has been doing press rounds for the film since it debuted at Cannes in May, and she already comes across as a seasoned pro. Asked why people need to see her debut film, Brooklynn responded, “Because of the message.
While we have a couple years to wait until a feature-length sequel, the studio is giving us a little something in the interim.
Kate Beckinsale, star of new 'The Only Living Boy In New York,' says she was considered for a 'Wonder Woman' project in mid-2000s, but they never worked
'Wonder Woman' is getting a sequel; while no details were announced, Warner Bros. confirmed to rapturous applause at Comic-Con new film's in the pipeline
With Wonder Woman continuing her assault on the box-office record books, it’s no surprise that the film’s brain trust is already cranking away on a sequel. Although no details have been announced yet — we expect some news at Saturday’s Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con — director Patty Jenkins and DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns are teaming up for the Amazon princess’ second solo outing. “I’m working right now on the Wonder Woman 2 script,” Johns told Yahoo Movies.
Catwoman and Wonder Woman might be on opposing sides in DC's comic books, but off screen it's a pure love fest.
After masterminding The Dark Knight trilogy (2005-12) — the Batman films widely regarded as the gold standard in superhero filmmaking — Christopher Nolan maintained a key creative role as an architect of the DC Extended Universe, pitching Warner Bros. the initial idea for and producing the 2013 Superman reboot, Man of Steel. The writer-director played a lesser role as an executive producer on the 2016 crimefighter clash Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Nolan had revealed a year earlier that he and his cowriter/brother Jonathan Nolan would be stepping away from the DCEU. With BvS responsible for introducing Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, we wanted to see if Christopher Nolan had seen 2017’s biggest superhero sensation to date, the Patty Jenkins-directed Wonder Woman.
Considering how back-loaded the release schedule is when it comes to awards-friendly films, it’s an encouraging sign that there have already been several movies from the first half of 2017 that could easily wind up in the Oscar conversation. True, a couple of them (Mudbound, Call Me by Your Name) premiered at Sundance and won’t get distributed until the fall, but there are plenty that have already dropped, from the art house (The Lovers, The Big Sick) to the cineplex (Get Out, Wonder Woman). Juno could provide the template for this touching and crowdpleasing rom-com based on the real-life coupling of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon.
It’s not like Ewen Bremner has been wasting the days away. The 45-year-old Scotsman, best known to U.S. audiences for the playing the scraggy heroine junkie Spud in Trainspotting, has been working consistently since Danny Boyle’s 1996 cult classic, with credits that include Snatch, Black Hawk Down, Pearl Harbor, Match Point, and Snowpiercer. In March, he reprised the role of the down-and-out Spud in the long-awaited sequel T2: Trainspotting.
The “Wonder Woman” film offers yet another version of the Amazon’s genesis, cherry-picking from her various comic backstories and tossing in some new details.
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
While the Wonder Woman feature film is still a month away, another version of DC's signature hero will be in action in comic stores this weekend. To mark the annual Free Comic Book Day, the publisher is releasing a one-shot of DC Super Hero Girls, which finds junior versions of "Wondy," Supergirl, and Batgirl struggling to juggle high school life with crime-fighting. And Yahoo Movies has your exclusive first look that comic here.
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.
It takes a woman to win a war in Wonder Woman, the next superhero film in the DC Extended Universe. The new trailer explains why the Amazon princess Diana (Gal Gadot) leaves her isolated homeland to fight alongside American troops in World War I as Wonder Woman. Although she finds turn-of-the-century fashions restrictive — “How can a woman possibly fight in this?” she asks while trying on a corseted dress — her bullet-deflecting bracelets and warrior skills are definitely an asset to the Allies.
DC Comics writer Greg Rucka made headlines recently when he acknowledged what many fans of Wonder Woman have long suspected: that the superhero is bisexual. With that news in mind, we wondered whether her sexuality would be represented on screen in next June’s highly anticipated solo adventure Wonder Woman? “It’s not in the film,” Gadot told Yahoo Movies (watch above) while visiting our studios with her Keeping Up With the Joneses castmates Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, and Zach Galifianakis.
The next two movies in the Warner Bros.-DC pipeline are getting lots of love at San Diego Comic-Con. Suicide Squad, out Aug. 5, is unquestionably the most anticipated panel of the three-day fan fest. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman, slated for a May 7, 2016 release, isn’t far behind on the buzz-o-meter, thanks to Gal Gadot’s stunning breakout as the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the fact that the Amazon warrior princess is also celebrating her 75th anniversary.
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is one of the brightest spots in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a dark superhero spectacle critics and audiences are otherwise split on. Before the Israeli actress lassoed the role though, there was a lengthy list of other lovely ladies in the mix to finally bring Wonder Woman to the big screen (Friday Night Lights’ Adrianne Palicki got the closest, playing the Amazonian in a failed 2011 TV pilot). Here’s a look at those would-be Wonder Women (with the help of some fan-made art).
Ostensibly, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel. But, as the second half of the title suggests, the Zack Snyder-helmed superhero smackdown also serves as the launchpad for an interconnected series of DC Entertainment-based films, a slate that includes at least a dozen films over the next several years. BvS not only introduces Ben Affleck’s Batman into the same world as Henry Cavill’s Superman, but we also get a big dose of Gal Gadot’s mighty Wonder Woman and quick glimpses of Ezra Miller’s Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Together, the quintet will dawn into the Justice League.
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.
We’ve been focusing on — and indeed Warner Bros. has been emphasizing — the Batman v Superman showdown aspect of the upcoming DC-based superhero flick. That film, however, has a subtitle: Dawn of Justice. And today, the Justice League dawned online.
