Wonder Woman 1984, Patty Jenkins followup to the 2017 smash hit Wonder Woman, is already going to be one of the most anticipated films of 2020. And although there will be a couple of familiar faces between Gal Gadots Diana and Chris Pines Steve Trevor, dont call it a sequel.
In a new interview with Vulture, Wonder Woman 1984 producer Charles Roven noted that avoiding the word sequel to describe the next Wonder Woman film came from Jenkins herself. And to frame the reasoning, he gives us a bit of a tease on what Wonder Woman 1984, which is currently in post-production, has in store when it debuts in theaters next year.
She was just determined that this movie should be the next iteration of Wonder Woman but not a sequel, Roven explained. And shes definitely delivering on that. Its a completely different time frame and youll get a sense of what Diana-slash-Wonder Woman had been doing in the intervening years. But its a completely different story that were telling. Even though itll have a lot of the same emotional things, a lot of humor, a lot of brave action. Tugs at the heartstrings as well.
According to a source close to Jenkins who spoke to Vulture, Jenkins doesnt believe that Wonder Woman 1984 isa sequel either. They compared it to other largely standalone series like Indiana Jones and James Bond, two franchises that don’t spend much time contemplating past films in the next one and don’t have much of a linkbeyond the main characters.Even though technically, what Roven is describing is a sequel.
While Wonder Woman 1984 is not a direct continuation of Wonder Womans story and were unlikely to see what Diana has been up to in-between World War I and 1984, those two stories are still linked. Diana will be in it and she will presumably have those ties, even if there aren’t explicit links to the first film. Warner Bros. and DC Comics had already been de-emphasizing the interconnective universe, so making and selling a film that doesnt require you to have seen half a dozen films before it to understand whats going on (like some Marvel films can) may be a move to avoid alienating audiences. And so far, its biggest box office successes to date have been standalone films like Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
But then theres the matter of Trevor. Although the character died at the end of Wonder Woman, Jenkins confirmed that Pine was returning to Wonder Woman 1984 and even released a photo of him in-character wearing a fanny pack. (She has remained mum on any context surrounding Pines return.) Will there be some sort of explanation as to why the character has seemingly risen from the dead? Or will he just pop up in Dianas life again like its nothing?
Well find out for sure once Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters on June 5, 2020.
H/T Comic Book Movie
Turn on late-night TV on almost any night of the week and you'll find one: a President Trump impression. Seth Meyers does one on Late Night, so does Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. Saturday Night Live has had a rotating door of comedians impersonating the president. But which one is the best? Which one nails it?
Actually, maybe none of them.
In the latest episode of WIRED's Technique Critique series, dialect coach Erik Singer analyzed a series of actors portraying US presidents and zeroed in on three comedians—Jimmy Fallon, Taran Killam, and Darrell Hammond— who have taken on Trump. His final word? "For a subtler, more multidimensional, more accurate, integrated, and authentic version of Trump the human being, I think we may have to wait a while." Welp, there you have it. (It's worth noting, though, Singer does think Alec Baldwin's Trump impression on SNL is pretty spot-on.)
Trump, however, is still a relatively new president, and one that—so far—only comedians have really dug into. Movie and TV actors, on the other hand, have spent years portraying US presidents with much better results. And among those, Singer has found some gems, including Dennis Quaid's Bill Clinton impression in The Special Relationship, Josh Brolin's George W. Bush in W., and Greg Kinnear's John F. Kennedy in The Kennedys miniseries.

Actor Shane Rimmer, who provided the voice of Scott Tracy in Thunderbirds, has died at the age of 89.
As well as voicing the heroic puppet pilot in the hit 1960s TV show, Rimmer also appeared in some of the biggest film franchises of all time.
He starred in James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me and had smaller roles in Star Wars, Superman and Batman movies.
He was also a familiar face on ITV’s Coronation Street in the late 1960s as American GI Joe Donnelli.
He returned to the soap in 1988 as another character, Malcolm Reid.
Born in Toronto, Canada, Rimmer moved to London in the late 1950s.
During his prolific career, he also appeared in TV shows like Doctor Who and The Saint, and in films including Dr Strangelove, Gandhi, Rollerball and Out of Africa.
His management company Infinite Artists said: “Shane was always tremendous fun and an absolute delight to work with. He will be very much missed.”
Machismo and money intersect in a glossy, mostly compelling film about a high-stakes heist in South America, starring Ben Affleck and Oscar Isaac
At this stage, given their ever-increasing prolificacy, the very definition of what a Netflix original movie is has become a bit foggy. Unlike a smaller independent, whose library of titles might share surface-level similarities, the streaming giant has morphed into a bigger studio, churning out films across all genres, trying to do it all and sometimes, just sometimes, actually succeeding.
Its latest, and one of its biggest to date, is Triple Frontier, an action thriller that feels very much like a glossy theatrical release, and one whose messy route through development hell reveals that for a long time, it was intended as such. Originally primed as a Paramount picture, to be directed by Kathryn Bigelow and with a rotating cast that has at times included Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks, Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Mark Wahlberg, Channing Tatum and Mahershala Ali, its a project that has been a hot property since 2010. In its small-screen incarnation (it will receive a small one-week theatrical window), its easy to see the appeal although even easier to see why it has ended up on Netflix.
Pope (Oscar Isaac) is a special forces operative whos spent the last three years trying to catch a powerful drug lord close to the Triple Frontier, the border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil. When an informant reveals not only his whereabouts but that his house is where he keeps his many millions, Pope hatches a plan. Rather than do it by the book, he will corral his old colleagues, now back in the US trying to lead so-called normal lives, into helping him plan heist. While there are echoes of a greater good, the men are mostly driven by greed and as the plan unfolds, their loyalties to one another become tested.
Rather like the characters themselves, the film-makers motivations are similarly straightforward. Directed by JC Chandor, whose work includes financial crash drama Margin Call and 80s crime saga A Most Violent Year, from a script he wrote with Mark Boal, Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Hurt Locker, one might assume from their prior credits that theyve tasked themselves with adding some weight to the films muscular framework. While there are throwaway references to PTSD and how poorly military veterans are treated by the US government, Triple Frontier is mostly concerned with providing unambiguous entertainment, an easily consumed adventure for a broad, undemanding Netflix viewership.
Taken on these terms, its an enjoyable enough way to spend two hours but without any commentary or real depth, its in need of a bit more suspense or conflict to really oil the wheels, the film too often ambling along when it should be racing. The buildup to the heist is admirably detailed on the logistics but less so on characterisation, the men mostly interchangeable. They might not be quite as high-wattage as some of the names once attached, but Chandor has assembled a solid ensemble with Isaac surrounded by Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal. While Hunnam strains to make his American accent believable once again and Affleck is stuck delivering lines in his comically over-egged Batman voice, the remaining team members help to fill in the many gaps left by the script while also making some of the clunkier, on-the-nose lines work (Its like they take the best 20 years of your life and then spit you out).
In the post-holidays, pre-summer slump that is this alleged “spring,” life can get pretty boring. Luckily, Hulu is here to bring on the drama with its March streaming. Here’s what’s available.
Often overshadowed by the sheer perfection that is its sequel The Dark Knight, Batman Begins is still more than worth a rewatch. Christian Bale coming into his own as Batman offers an excellent model for future Batman casting assessments and Cillian Murphy in anything is always creepy and delightful.
On the TV side of things, we’ve got two tense spinoffs worth the binge: Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists: Season 1 and Fear The Walking Dead: Season 4. Obviously, these two series cater to pretty different crowds, but considering how successful their predecessors were/are, we’re certain they’ll wiggle their way into plenty of queues.
Check out everything coming to and going from Hulu in March 2019 below.
From Netflix’s The Ted Bundy Tapes to Prime Video’s Lorena, 2019 has already been a successful year for true-crime series.
Now, Hulu is taking its latest crack at the genre with a disturbing dramatization of the murder of Dee Dee Blanchard.
The details of this bizarre case easily lend themselves to a series, but achieving the right balance between exposition and character narrative could be tricky. Fingers crossed the talents of The Act‘s stars, Joey King and Patricia Arquette, deliver a project worth obsessing over.
The Act begins streaming on Hulu March 20.

A mail order website selling machetes, swords and a knife “mystery box” has been criticised by police who believe one of its blades was used in a murder.
Ashraf Hussan was pictured with a knife police believe he bought from the website hours before he and a teenager fatally stabbed a man in Cambridge.
Det Ch Insp Alan Page, who investigated the murder, was “aghast” at how easy it was to buy dangerous weapons.
The store said: “All products we sell are legal and we abide by all laws.”
Hussan, 20, had purchased “numerous” knives from the website, including a folding knife on 13 July, Cambridgeshire Police said.
Twelve days later officers believe county lines drug dealer Hussan used that knife when he and Juned Ahmed, 18, both from Newham in east London, murdered Peter Anderson.
The pair are due to be sentenced later.
The knife sales company, which is based in a residential estate in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, sells axes, “Rambo” knives and other weapons glamorised in films, such as Batman throwing knives.
It also offers the chance for customers who “can’t decide” to “make it a surprise” and purchase an unknown knife in a mystery box – a concept Det Ch Insp Page labelled strange.
“Surely if people are going online to buy a knife to use in gardening or some sort of maintenance they know what knife they are looking for,” he said.
The website requires purchasers to prove they are 18 or over but the detective called for legislation to include further background checks when people purchase knives.
“Yes, people can get access to kitchen knives, but why make it so easy to get these “Rambo” knives and hunting knives?” Det Ch Insp Page said.
“Fair enough if someone is a tree surgeon and needs it for a legitimate reason, but someone who lives in a flat in London with no garden and no employment – you’ve got to ask yourself why do they need a knife such as that?
“I think it’s because they’re going to use it for a criminal purpose.”
The company asks for a driving licence and for payments to be made on a pre-paid credit card which can only be owned by those aged 18 or over.
But the BBC purchased a spring-assisted knife from the website using a licence with a doctored age and a debit card, which can be owned by under-18s.
Company director Joseph Wheeler said there were no flaws in the firm’s age verification process.
The government has plans to ban the sale of bladed articles online to residential addresses and the knife sales site said it was “implementing delivery to collection points for age verification checks in person”.
In a statement, Mr Wheeler added: “Knives are used for thousands of legitimate purposes by law-abiding citizens.
“(We) are extremely careful with our age verification checks, this is our number one priority.
“Trading standards do regularly check this, and we follow all their age verification guidelines thoroughly. All products we sell are legal and we abide by all laws.”
