This is the ‘Gotham’ trailer. Why Gotham? I just see London. Or maybe I missed something vital. Doubtful. I just hope it’s more interesting than Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Anyhoo, this time, she’s portrayed by Gal Gadot, star of four of the Fast and Furious movies, as well as BvS where she clearly made her mark, so hopefully that’s her introduction out of the way and we won’t need to waste an hour in her own film telling us what we already know.
While this is an origins movie, it looks far more interesting than most of them out there, in this film which is directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster), and which also stars Robin Wright, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis, Ewen Bremner and Danny Huston.
I just hope it doesn’t last two-and-a-half hours and manages to keep to a lean two hours like Marvel’s Doctor Strange.
Wonder Woman is has been brought forward one day in the UK to June 1st 2017, one day ahead of the US, and 3 weeks ahead of its original date.
Another change is that, according to IMDB, there is no footage shot for this film other than in the ratio of 2.35:1. Originally, the IMAX version reportedly had some footage shot in 1.44:1 (like a number of scenes in BvS), since such a portion would have been shot on 70mm film, but digital presentations can only open up to 1.90:1 so you would still miss out, and even when 1.44:1 footage is available, it depends on whether cinemas will actually GET that version. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens had one scene in that format, BUT it was only available to THREE cinemas in the UK, clearly because Disney are complete cheap-asses. If I’d known this before I booked my ticket, I’d have gone with the regular non-IMAX version in Manchester. Conversely, BvS *was* shown in 70mm IMAX, there.
