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, without meaning that the film is bad. The pace of the movie was OK and the humour was fun but there’s something about the movie’s initial trailer that I just loved more.
Of course, the exceptionally chosen, perfectly rousing trailer music coupled with great editing, storytelling and visuals had much to do with it. 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 hat would have been a great idea, clearly. 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 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, watch it because it’s good.
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)
I definitely like the Comic-Con trailer more than I do the one for Justice League (2017)– 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 movie to be as powerful in its ability to silence the critics of Gal Gadot as Casino Royale (2006) was for critics of Daniel Craig’s casting as James Bond.
Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright also star.
Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg and Gal Gadot as Wonder woman, the DC Comics’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie trailers look good…
Intense, interesting are two words that come to mind. I’ll be watching for reasons including the seemingly promising dialogue. Though, I do wonder how much longer it’s going to be before comic book movie fatigue sets in on a large scale, if it does. Either way, right now it’s the fans who really, REALLY love these stories that I’m most excited for.
Perhaps Wonder woman will get the two superheroes to work together. Quite likely.
