DC finally got their movies right, as the first blockbuster film to star and be helmed by women did great business at the box office. Here’s what went down:
With the type of reviews and excitement usually reserved for Marvel movies, Wonder Woman had a stellar debut weekend at the box office, landing in first place with $100.5 million. This is the biggest debut for a female led blockbuster, with Gal Gadot starring and Patty Jenkins directing the origin of Diana of Themyscira. I just got back from the film and, while I found it a little long (like most super hero film movies are), I thought Gadot was absolutely astounding in the role. She had very little screen time in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it was definitely wonderful to see her shine on screen. Though she had no difficulties carrying the film, she certainly was surrounded by great actors like David Thewlis and Robin Wright. Forget Batman or Superman – the real leader of the upcoming big screen Justice League team should be Wonder Woman.
We’re hearing that it’s full of action, adventure, tears and joy – and that there are <a-hem> pardon the pun – wonderful performances throughout the film!
Yesterday, Biff Bam Pop! Editor-In-Chief, Andy Burns, predicated a $105 million bankroll for the film in its first weekend of release. That’s a hefty and, frankly, outstanding sum of coin for this film and a number that can only be deemed a victory for the DC Cinematic Universe. There’s a lot riding on the Wonder Woman film both creatively and monetarily.
But Wonder Woman is more than just a single film. The character is a 75-year old pop culture icon of strength, love, hope, and will – not to mention an number of other positive and engaging adjectives!
Did you know that today, June 3, is #WonderWomanDay?!
Perfect timing, really…and there are a number of things you, or someone you love, can do to participate in the worldwide celebrations!
There’s been a lot of talk recently about Warner Bros. and DC Comics not promoting this movie as much as they should, but here at Biff Bam Pop! we love the Amazon Princess, so here is the final trailer for Wonder Woman!
Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, and Robin Wright, directed by Patty Jenkins, will be released June 7, 2017. I love this (there’s even old school Golden Age villain Dr. Poison in this one!) and I cannot wait! What do you folks think?
The trailer for Wonder Woman is here, giving us all more of what we wanted from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice -more Gal Gadot. The film is going the Captain America route, taking place in the early 20th century, and this trailer captures the vibe perfectly.
Last weekend, the latest large-popcorn, comic book superhero, cinematic-universe-builder blockbuster, dropped into movie theatres everywhere.
And much like the citizens of fictional Metropolis, none of us could escape the heavy-handed and all-encompassing fallout from both advertising and on-line word of mouth. A strange thing happened after you bought your theatre tickets in advance.
Last week the online crowd roared loader than Doomsday. People hated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Loathed it, in fact.
But was it all that bad?
Over the course of the day, Biff Bam Pop! writers will give their high level take on the film. Check back regularly, as more contributions are added to this post of reviews that are sure to run the gamut of praise and abhorrence.
Let’s not waste another bat-second. Our heroic thoughts on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are but a super-jump away!
There’s been lots of talk about Wonder Woman lately with the recent release of the new Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, including the first footage of Gal Gadot as the Amazon Princess (and Diana Prince!!), so for the “Avengers Assemble” team to face off against the Squadron Supreme’s own pseudo-Wonder Woman – Zarda – is rather timely. What does the polarizing Power Princess have in store for Thor? Meet me after the jump, for my review of this week’s episode, “Midgard Crisis,” to find out.
There have been enough articles written on Batman to wallpaper every home in America, but for Batman’s big 75th Anniversary I wanted to cover the women from television and film who had crossed paths with the Dark Knight. What did they think of the big guy and were they friend or foe? Head to the Batcave to find out. Read the rest of this entry
