With the arrival of the June holidays, a favourite family activity is to catch a film in theatres together. Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.
When you’re Wonder Woman, you have to be ready for everything that crosses your path — even a red carpet premiere! With…
The 'Wonder Woman' director explains what her vision for the Marvel sequel had been, before she was replaced by Alan Taylor.
Like any major blockbuster, “Wonder Woman” has landed a series of cross-promotion deals to build buzz ahead of its June 2 release date. Indeed, the tie-ins for those two heroes’ big clash in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” included more male-oriented brands like Jeep and Doritos. “This cross-promotion is full of the mixed messages of unrealistic standards women have forced upon them their whole lives,” wrote Vivian Kane of The Mary Sue.
The movie business is bracing itself for what could be the worst summer at the box office for a decade, according to reports. The Los Angeles Times has cited a range of industry insiders who fear that the market could be down by as much as 10 percent from last year’s takings. The prominent releases for summer 2017 are indeed mostly either sequels, remakes or movies from already established franchises.
DC and Warner Bro’s “Wonder Woman” film may still be a few weeks from our shores, but that didn’t stop the Princess of the Amazons from making “an appearance” in Singapore last Thursday (4 May).
As well as giving us our first proper look at the team in action (including a curiously Iron Man-esque Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher), this trailer also gives us our first brief glimpses of some other new characters, including Amber Heard as Mera, and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. There’s also a quick glimpse of Amy Adams as Lois Lane – although, as necessitated by the ending of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ one rather notable absentee is Henry Cavill as Superman.
It perhaps wasn’t the first matter of note in the most recent trailer for DC’s newest take on ‘Wonder Woman’, but since its release last week, it’s certainly opened up a lively debate. Armpit hair: should Wonder Woman have it or not? Some websites have noted that Gal Gadot is entirely free from any kind of growth in the underarm area, and have suggested that as a woman dwelling in the deepest Amazon in a seemingly exclusively female community, perhaps depilation would not be top priority.
Ahead of this summer’s ‘Wonder Woman’ we’ve been given a glimpse at how Diana Prince (Gal Godot) became the fearless warrior, in the Origin trailer. Similarly, ‘Wonder Woman’ will (ideally) thinly tread the origin tale before focusing on her adulthood and time fighting alongside Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor in Europe. It is, however, where the film seemingly starts, as we witness Diana grow up through the use of either flashbacks or a contextual, chronological series time-hopping scenes.
Yahoo Movies has the exclusive first look at DC Collectibles’ upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues based on the Justice League lineup. The meticulously detailed poly-resin sculpts were designed in coordination with Warner Bros. and present our best look yet at the costumed characters who make up DC’s premier hero team: Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Each piece, mounted on a Justice League stand, will retail for $150, be limited to a run of 5,000 copies and will be available timed to the film’s Nov. 17 opening.
Since her breakout role as Tyra Collette on the beloved television drama Friday Night Lights (#ClearEyesFullHeartsCantLose), Adrianne Palicki has participated in some grand-scale productions. As Baby, Baby, Baby hits DVD and Digital HD, Palicki dropped by Yahoo Studios for a Facebook Live interview (watch above) to tell us all about her new indie, plus her idea for a FNL spin-off and what she thinks went wrong with her failed Wonder Woman pilot. Palicki got to explore her artsy side in Baby, Baby, Baby.
A raft of thespians really made the effort to become unrecognisable for roles in 2016, whether through over-eating (McConaughey), heavy prosthetics (Downton’s Dan Stevens for ‘Beauty and the Beast’) or simply just bad eyebrows (John Travolta in ‘The People Vs O.J. Simpson). Here are a few more of the best.

Arguably DC fans are most excited to see how the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ turns, hoping it’ll be the turning point where the studio can begin to compete with Marvel for big screen prowess. While ‘Wonder Woman’ is in cinemas next summer and Patty Jenkins’ production is shaping up nicely, it’s perhaps Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ that looks set to be the film that competes with Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ series. With all the buzz around the character, Snyder (who’s directing ‘Justice League’ and is responsible for ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’) has shared a brand new image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman on Twitter.
