I watched Wonder Woman on TV. I loved Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman. I loved Debra Winger as her younger sister, Wonder Girl. (Yes. Debra Winger.)
Well, WONDER WOMAN is here now and the movie was directed by a woman -- Patty Jenkins. She directed Charlize Theron to a very well-deserved Best Actress Oscar win for 2003's MONSTER. Jenkins also wrote the MONSTER screenplay. In that, Jenkins looks at the dark side of female power and femininity in this story about real life serial killer, Aileen Wuornos. Note: Look up news footage of Aileen Wuornos and then watch Theron's uncanny recreation in MONSTER.
Gal Gadot plays Diana Prince also known as Wonder Woman. Besides Patty Jenkins as director, another reason why I want to see WONDER WOMAN is that she cast Chris Pine as the leading man. From what I've seen in clips, she embraced his keen comedy side.
Then, in 2015, I attended an "upfront" for a TV outlet. "Upfronts" are held to promote a TV show's or a network's new season. It's a publicity party. This one for Crackle was held in Manhattan's City Center theater close to Carnegie Hall. The presentation included clips for the upcoming product. The upfront ended with outtakes from a new animated series. Chris Pine was the voice for one of the characters. The montage of Chris Pine clips was so hilarious that press people who were headed up the aisles to leave stopped and stayed to watch and laugh. Chris Pine ad libbing was like early Robin Williams funny. So now I'm thinking..."He's handsome, he can sing...AND he's funny."
After that came HELL OR HIGH WATER, one of the best movies of last year. In fact, it was an Oscar nominee for Best Picture. Chris Pine is excellent as the bank robber in that drama. He's just so talented and handsome that I could easily hate him. But I don't. Here's a trailer for WOMAN WOMAN.
