WONDER WOMAN 1984 Trailer has Launched Online. Cue Camp Fun on a Massive Scale and Gal Gadot looking Gorgeous!

by James Murphy

DC’s Cinematic Universe Continues, Apace. With its Queen, Priestess, Warrior, Goddess, Diana, Taking the Lead

 

What do we now know about WONDER WOMAN 1984?

    • It’s camp. High camp. With a cherry on top. Deliciously theatrical fun. 
    • There is plenty of nostalgia; continuing the cinematic franchise trend of the last decade whereby the year is a kind of character / plot device in itself (see also, the recent X Men films?). 
    • Pedro Pascal looks to be the baddie? Is he a BIT of a Biff Tannen / not in ANY WAY AT ALL a take on Trump type? Looks that way. 
    • Chris Pine back in action and great to see him in the genre again; romantic/ vulnerable /lost yet still tough, cool, commanding. 
    • Gal Gadot looking impossibly sexy, cool, compelling and convincing in action, including new outfits. 
    • Genuinely ambitious action beats; very Spielberg / Raiders of the Lost Ark (v apt for a 1980s tribute piece)

Solid follow up to the first film, it seems, whilst incorporating some of the style and fun of the TV show, too?

Opens next year; more coverage when we know more details. Exciting Times!
