Can someone re-edit that trailer to replace the Nickelback-sounding shit music with a proper movie score? What an stupid, stupid choice by some studio knucklehead. Looks fun on mute, though!

This last trailer looks great.... but WB has fooled many fans before, so I'm still waiting for reviews before I make any decisions.

The only thing for me that's a bit worrisome at this point is that all trailers and TV spots up until now have essentially been showing mostly variations of the same bits, lines & footage over and over again...

...I'm hoping this isn't all the great stuff they have in the film!  Hopefully Warners/DC is showing some admirable restraint and is simply trying to save some big surprises and not spoil everything all up front.

I remember the days when I went to see a movie based ONLY on the trailers... I NEVER read the reviews or let family or friends (who may have seen it before me) influence my decision in ANY way... Yup... I remember it like it was only yesterday... Wait... It was yesterday!

I remember those days as well, but tickets were WAY CHEAPER!!! For today's prices (and WB's track record with it's DCCU), it's harder to 'trust' just the trailers.

I guess I can understand that, which is why my wallet is going to get quite empty this year as there are SO many flicks that I want to go see on the big screen...

Alien: Covenant
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Wonder Woman
The Mummy
Transformers: The Last Knight
Spider-Man: Homecoming
War for the Planet of the Apes
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
The Dark Tower
It
Blade Runner 2049
Thor: Ragnarok
Justice League
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Hmmm. Now that I've compiled ALL that, I may have to seriously consider paring it down a BIT... LOL!

Just for funzies (and because I know everyone here is SO interested in it)... Here are the films coming out in 2018 that I'd like to see on the BIG screen...

Black Panther
Pacific Rim: Uprising
Untitled Universal Monsters Movie
The New Mutants
Avengers: Infinity War
Untitled Han Solo film
Deadpool 2
Untitled Transformers Bumblebee spin-off
The Incredibles 2
Jurassic World 2
Ant-Man and the Wasp
Hotel Transylvania 3
Alita: Battle Angel
The Predator
Jungle Book
X-Men: Dark Phoenix
Aquaman

YIKES!

Yeah, Wonder Woman is easily the best since the Christopher Nolan Batman movies! Even better!

*Pockets the $50 from WB*

The IMDb has a gallery of fifty images from WONDER WOMAN, and for the first time I grow genuinely concerned. Points:

I thought it was a good idea to transplant Diana to WWI, to get her out of Captain America's shadow, but now I see they have apparently given her her own "Howling Commandos" team, which brings the shadow right back.

I have already noted that Connie Nielson is too old to be Hippolyta. (As good as she looks for her age, I have said many times that no one on that island should look a day over 25.) Now I see she is sporting some kind of bird emblem on her Amazon armor. Is Diana's fighting garb not longer meant to look American?

Several shots give us Robin Wright looking almost like she stepped off the page as Artemis -- only she is playing "General Antiope". and a Black actor is playing the tall, slender, pale skinned redhead.

And from the trailers:

Lucy Davis looks like Etta Candy, but I fear her English accent will get in the way.

Several splashes of "humor" worry me. I don't want the movie to be a dirge, but neither do I want there to be echoes of Adam West as Hollywood again tries to have it both ways.

The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas is soon having a 'women only' screening of Wonder Woman.  

And not just for female patrons only.  Everyone working in the building at any capacity for the screening will be female!    

I think it's cool.  

Some folks don't.  
Predictably.

I do hope this film lives up to the trailer. Gal Gadot looks iconic sliding around in the red, gold and blue and they've managed to make her hair perfect -- like it's straight from the page.

I really hope this movie is good. We really need a second actual super hero in case something happens to Chris Evans.

I am really hoping this is as good as the trailers seem to be. I think Gal Gadot is a great Wonder Woman and god knows DC could use a decent superhero movie. Much more interested in this than Justice League.

Saw the movie... Imo the best movie from DC in recent years. My
family and I loved it. It has few flaws, but it is finally a positive movie.
Inspiring even.
And I will stop at that. Enjoy the movie, guys.

I have no intention of reading any reviews, but it's good to see, at a very fast glance, that the rating aggregator is quite high so far. 

My tickets were purchased weeks ago so I would be seeing the movie one way or the other, but I remain mostly optimistic despite DC's dismal track record.  Fingers crossed.

And, with that, I'll be out of this thread until I see the movie on Friday night.

Looking forward to this Saturday's viewing.

I'm very happy for Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot.  Gadot especially since she had to endure so much bullshit abut her physical appearance before the movie even began filming.  

This appears to be among the best comic book hero adaptations yet to be released.  I hope I agree.

Many are noting that it's the best effort of the DCEU, so far. Duh. Nowhere to go but up.
 
Far more impressive are the favorable comparisons to IRON MAN and Christopher Reeve's SUPERMAN.

Soooooo happy the word-of-mouth has been stellar... when the family finally sees it (probably not this weekend, but hopefully next), I may be weeping tears of joy throughout.

I especially hope my two daughters end-up loving it.

Watching this review:

(5:07): "And they also wisely understood which parts of her origin to poke fun at. Which things sounded silly enough to make a joke out of it"

Uhhhh
