While Wonder Woman fans might’ve been worried about the lack of advertising for the upcoming film, pundits were quick to tell audiences to relax, they’re coming, you just have to let them get to the other side of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It would seem the pundits are right: last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live with Wonder Woman co-star Chris Pine capped a week of new television spots, publicity photos, and interviews with the cast and crew. And now Warner Bros. has gone all out with a brand new trailer for Wonder Woman during tonight’s MTV Movie & TV Awards.
Up until a few months ago, we knew that Wonder Woman would take place during World War I, and that the primary antagonist was probably something metaphorical like the evils of war itself, but in January we learned that the main villain of the movie would literally be war, personified. Ares is one of Diana’s primary antagonists in the comics, and we actually saw a little bit of him in the short TV spot that director Patty Jenkins debuted last night.
FX’s ‘Fargo’ enters the selfie age with Season 3, but might need a bit more reflection on Noah Hawley’s passion for this weird and wonderful world. Our early review, before dueling Ewan McGregors come to blows on April 19.
Was one Fargo sneak peek not enough for you? Well, prepare for all the murder, McGregor and Minnesota you can handle, as the first full “Installment 3” trailer takes us into the world of competitive bridge-playing. Yes, you read that correctly.
Slowly, but surely, Fargo Season 3 is shoveling itself out from the snow. We finally saw first photos of the star-studded cast, and now those clever teasers have given way to actual footage of “Installment 3,” and the “unfathomable pinheadery” of a first official promo.
Early looks at Fargo Season 3 gave us a glimpse of both Ewan McGregor’s dual role and Carrie Coon’s Chief Burgle, and the full cast is finally coming out to play, See Mary Elizabeth Winstead, David Thewlis and more in the first official photos from our third tale of Minnesota murder and mayhem!
With all eyes on the next entry in the DC Cinematic Universe, it’s hard to say what is under more pressure: Wonder Woman, the World War II-era superhero and savior of the modern world, or Wonder Woman, the first female-directed movie in the modern blockbuster era and a stab at social relevance for the beleaguered executives at Warner Bros. The first Wonder Woman trailer that debuted at Comic-Con hit all the right notes for an exciting and female-driven superhero movie; would additional trailers walk back that promise or deliver more of the same?
Winter is finally beginning to thaw (it lasted a good few weeks), and with it, FX is pulling Fargo out of the snow, and into an April premiere. Season 3 has officially set a date for spring, taking us all back to 2010 with a star-studded cast and dueling Ewan McGregors.
There’s just a few months left until Wonder Woman hits theaters, which means it’s time for Warner Bros. to get down to the business of promoting the crap out of this movie. When I saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in theaters, the crowd greeted her character during the climactic fight scene with wild cheers and applause, suggesting to me that audiences are ready to embrace the first standalone superhero movie. We’ve had the first two rounds of movie trailers; now it’s time to open the floodgates on teasers, TV spots, and production rumors. Let the games begin!
