New Trailer for Wonder Woman and Happy NaNoWriMo!

New trailer for Wonder Woman? Yes, please

So I'm really excited for this movie. I want it (nay, need) it to be good, and have already gone on record to say that if it's bad, I will cry and said reaction would be filmed. To my great relief, the Comic-Con trailer was phenomenal and got my hopes up quite a lot after Batman vs. Superman. That's where I'm coming from with this one; I thought Suicide Squad was okay, and a step in at least the somewhat right direction, but this is the one that I'm pinning my hopes on. With that, how was the trailer?

It was good, I really enjoyed it. There's a lot of great imagery and some seriously badass stuff going on here. I'm having a hard time liking it as much as that original Comic-Con footage, though. This one almost seems a bit toned down, like they are trying to give us more character stuff without actually giving us a whole lot. I watched the two back-to-back, and there's definitely less of an epic feeling here. Not to say it makes it look like the film will be bad, because it doesn't. I still have a lot of hope for Wonder Woman, and I'm just going to go into it the same way we went into Legendary's Godzilla and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with the mantra 'please be good, please be good, please be good'.

 

In other news, Happy NaNoWriMo to all my fellow writers! What are you guys doing to help you up the creative output? For myself, I started the month by compiling a new playlist for writing (especially blog writing) that would hopefully help me concentrate more and spend less time skipping through songs. It's also entirely made of up soundtrack music: everything from Batman, to Star Wars, Godzilla, 300, Dragon Age II, Jurassic Park, etc. So far it's going pretty well.

 

Hopefully everyone's having a great week and I'll be back in a few days with a new review for Doctor Strange. Until then, happy writing!

    Just to point out to those who don’t quite understand the concept: This movie (well, part of it, at least) is set, not in WWII, but in WWI, aka “The War to end all wars”. No, I’m NOT sure why the Kaiser wants to invade Themyscria, or how he pulls that trick off… But Steve Trevor is flying a biplane, the Germans have been seen wearing the helmet with the spiky bits, the Machine Guns are all water-cooled, and women are still wearing hoop skirts… 😉

  2. The Atomic Punk

    Liking the production value. The sets and costumes are very eye-catching and steampunk. This might be the DCEU’s best outing to date.

    Happy NaNoWriMo! I really need to get back into creating. My situation for the past few years has had me in such a funk. /cues David and David’s “Swallowed by the Cracks.”

  3. I’ll agree with Atomic Punk. Visually, the film looks great, the thought and detail they’ve put into the sets, props and costumes are excellent. However, we can’t get too excited because the script needs to be good as well and this is the DCEU so haven’t got my hopes too high. I mean, the early previews for Suicide Squad looked great and as time went on and Warner Bros. dug their claws deeper that film got ruined, so that could still happen again. Lets hope not though.

  4. Something that gives me hope: Sunlight! Actual colors!

    This seems dumb, but the simple fact that the entire movie doesn’t seem to happen either at night or with super-desaturated colors is a great clue that the movie may be moving in the right direction (Being “Your super heroes don’t have to be murderous assholes”)

    And, well, it looks dynamic, with both character development and action scenes. I really want this to be good.

    So far, Chris Pine is making a better impression on me as Steve Trevor, than he did as Captain Kirk.

  6. not a bad trailer.
    I’m having the same problem with writing and every other medium I always have–not enough time to use them to get my ideas out. I’ve actually wondered how I could cull the lesser ideas BEFORE I waste time on producing them in a form I can review them or have others do it. They all sound fine in my head . . .
