Patty Jenkins returns to direct the sequel to Wonder Woman (2017), Wonder Woman 1984

Pedro Pascal, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Robin Wright are among the key cast…

Interesting…

How is Steve alive? Why 1984? This trailer isn’t bad but why did I think it would be as thrilling as the fantastic trailer for Wonder Woman (2017)?

Right now I only have the answer for one of those questions.

Kristen Wiig, Connie Nielsen, Spencer Trinwith, Jamal Alkhaldi, Chris Silcox, Rick Kelvin Branch, Justin Sisk and Thomas Clay Strickland also star.

WONDER WOMAN (2017): Good…

As good a film as Wonder Woman is, I’m quite sure that I adore the trailer more.

This is probably the first time I’ve said I love a trailer more than I love the film, but without really meaning that the film is bad. The pace of this movie was OK and the humour was fun but there’s something about the movie’s initial trailer that I just cant forget about – because it was super.

Of course the exceptionally chosen, perfectly rousing trailer music coupled with great editing, storytelling and visuals had much to do with it. Yet with that said, Wonder Woman’s crime, for me, may be that the wonderful high I experienced as I watched the trailer from beginning to end wasn’t constantly present throughout the film. Not that I’m saying that would have been a great idea. Yet the truth remains there’s no denying, for me at least, the noticeable absence of said high by the end of this movie. Instead of taking my hands to the air whilst silently yelping, so as not to annoy my neighbours (as I did post trailer viewing), at the end of this Jenkins’s movie I said out loud, ‘It’s not a bad film‘.

Gadot is really great. She’s beautiful, strong, very capable and in my mind, my big sister. 

You probably already have but I’ll still say it all the same, watch it because it’s good.

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES (2016): The Thing I Liked…

I sat down to watch Keeping Up With The Joneses without any grand expectations and that’s probably the best way to go into it, should you choose to do so. Starring John Hamm, Gal Gadot, Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher, I found this Greg Mottola directed action / comedy only mildly funny.

There are indeed a couple of moments that made the experience less regrettable. The first being the nicely executed snake scene in the Chinese restaurant. The second is when Galifianakis’s character makes a joke at the expense of the British. It could be that I found it particularly hilarious because the United Kingdom is home. More likely though, it’s Galifianakis’s excellent comic timing and delivery. Beyond these two scenes, everything else about Keeping Up With The Joneses just felt like cheap filler because it wasn’t that good.

One last good thing Mottola’s movie did is remind me that Wonder Woman (2017), my most highly anticipated movie of this year will be here in not too many months. I for one cannot wait to see its star Gal Gadot do her thing.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Wonder Woman (2017).


I haven’t really paid much attention to many of the Wonder Woman news headlines ever since it was announced that Gal Gadot had won the role. Hearing about the resultant backlash concerning her casting only worked to make me impatient for the day when she hopefully gets to silence all her critics with a brilliant performance…

Trailer 1 (Comic-Con)

Trailer 2

I definitely like the Comic-Con trailer more than I do the one for Justice League (2017) – a trailer that was also released on the same day.

The music, visuals and general ‘badassery’ just speaks to me more. Though not just because the Amazon princess and I are both young ladies.

It crossed my mind that Wonder Woman is kind of a female Captain America. I say this initially because of the shield. I’m sure there are probably other reasons but I’m completely new to this story so I’d just be guessing. I’d love for this Patty Jenkins directed film to be as powerful in its ability to silence the critics of Gadot as Casino Royale (2006) was for critics of Daniel Craig’s casting as James Bond. I’m so very ready.

Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright also star.

Wonder Woman Release Dates: June 2nd, 2017 (US & UK); June 7th, 2017 (FR);  June 15th, 2017 (GER)…

JUSTICE LEAGUE (2017): New Trailer Starring Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller…

There’s more evidence that the comic book film domination of Hollywood is continuing to go from strength to strength. Reason being, we have a trailer for DC Comics’ Justice League, a movie that we can all guess will have sequel upon sequel to follow should this one do well at the box office.  With Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ben Affleck as Batman and Jason Momoa playing  Aquaman, even though I’m not the biggest fan of comic book movies by this point, I find myself a little curious…

I’m mostly interested because I want to see how Justice League will differ from Marvel Studios’ Avengers. As far as I can see, both films are about super heroes coming together to save humanity. I’d love to be pleasantly surprised by this movie’s execution.

As for my thoughts on the above teaser trailer, it didn’t have me slapping the wall with excitement and yelping with joy as I’m known to do when blessed with a thrilling tease of a trailer. Likely controversial, but I find this one just OK.

I’ll of course wait and see before daring to declare something along the lines of ‘Marvel does it better’.

Directed by Zack Snyder; Ezra Miller, Ray fisher, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jared Leto, J.K. Simmons and Jeremy Irons also star.

Justice League Release Dates: November 17th, 2017 (US & UK)…

CRIMINAL (2016): New Trailer Starring Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Costner & Gal Gadot

The plot of Criminal involves the planting of a deceased persons skills and memories into another individual. Sounds a lot like sci-fi to me, But it’s the brand new  action / drama from director of The Iceman (2012), Ariel Vroman. Ryan Reynolds, Gary Oldman, Kevin Costner and Gal Gadot are the stars…

This trailer, though not perfect, I’m interested. The involvement of Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones gives me the most hope.

I’m curious as to why, knowing the outline of the plot as I do… I wonder why Criminal isn’t categorised under sci-fi. Does its categorisetion really mean that science makes it possible for one person’s skills to be implanted into another? If so, forget Rosetta Stone; I’m acquiring Italian Language skills the new way!

Criminal Release Dates: April 15th, 2016 (US & UK)…

The Batman v Superman – Dawn of Justice trailer I’ve been waiting for has finally arrived! It’s all I ever really wanted to see…

This final trailer feels like something to get excited about. I’m now thinking of Henry Cavill and Ben Afflecks characters as two angry men and the words positively intense come to mind. Just look at their faces in these photos.

Release Date (s): March 24th, 2016 (FR & GER); March 25th, 2016 (US & UK)…
