Wonder Woman Launches Oscar Campaign

Wonder Woman Launches Oscar Campaign
Warner Bros. finally got their Dceu superhero universe back on track with Wonder Woman, which has become not only one of the highest-grossing movies ($412.4 million domestic) of the year, but also one of the most critically-acclaimed (92% on Rotten Tomatoes) as well. There had been a report from late July that claimed Warner Bros. was planning a Wonder Woman Oscar campaign, and now that has been confirmed, with the studio launching an official "for your consideration" website for Wonder Woman, along with three more potential Oscar contenders, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 and Chris McKay's The Lego Batman Movie.

The studio only has three more movies coming out this year, with this weekend's disaster thriller Geostorm, Justice League (November 17) and the comedy Father Figures (December 22), so it seems that Wonder Woman, Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 and The Lego Batman Movie represent the studio's best chance

How 'Wonder Woman's' Island Home Was Created

How 'Wonder Woman's' Island Home Was Created
Wonder Woman — which just completed its second weekend atop the domestic box office — begins on Themyscira, the breathtaking island that Diana calls home and also one of the most challenging aspects of the film's production design.

“We talked about creating a beautiful island, but not being too close to the Greek islands, which is the obvious inspiration,” explains two-time Oscar nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (Amelie, A Very Long Engagement). “We wanted a beautiful, natural environment that the Amazons protect as the environment protects them. It’s lush, green.

“I designed troglodyte architecture for its organic shape,” she continues. “Using...

First Official Wonder Woman Still; Robin Wright, Danny Huston And More Join Cast

Warner Bros. has announced the commencement of production on director Patty Jenkins’ solo Wonder Woman movie with a press release detailing the new cast additions, as well as an image that gives us our first official look at Gal Gadot (in this movie, anyway) as Princess Diana herself.

The additional cast members include Robin Wright, Danny Huston and David Thewlis – though the characters they’ll be playing are being kept under wraps for now. Nicole Kidman was said to be in talks to play another Amazonian warrior believed to be Diana’s mother, Hippolyta, but there’s no mention of her here. Perhaps that’s being saved for a separate announcement, or talks simply fell through and Robin Wright is now playing that role?

Regardless, you can check out the full press release, along with the first official Wonder Woman still, below:

Review: Lead-footed 'Pan' smothers the whimsy with a wrong-headed script

Review: Lead-footed 'Pan' smothers the whimsy with a wrong-headed script
Why is it so hard to make a good Peter Pan film? By my count, there's one great film version of the story, and it's not the Disney version. Maybe the problem can be best summed up by noting that when Pj Hogan released his version in 2003, there were several critics who clutched their pearls and freaked out and acted nervous about the way the story's subtext threatened to become text. Why? Because he told the story the right way, and when you tell the story the right way, it is crystal clear that "Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up" is about that transitional moment when we cross from being children into something else. It is about loss of innocence and the fear of that loss. It is about a refusal to allow adulthood to gain any foothold, and what it is one would have to deny to stay a child forever.
