Watch out for Wonder Woman, all set to hit cinema screens this summer
Written by Ravleen Khera

Wonder Woman is a superhero film based on the DC comics character of the same name, which is going hit theatres this summer in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D formats. The film has been directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot as the titular character along with Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis among others. The film is being distributed by Warner bros. Pictures.

The plot of the film revolves around the princess of Amazon, Diana (before she is Wonder woman), who lives on the island of Themyscira, in the early 20th century and she is trained to be an invincible warrior, raised on a protected island environment. She then happens to meet an American Pilot who is washed ashore after a crash and he tells her about the horrible conflict and war that is taking place in the outside world i.e. World War 1. Convinced that she is capable of tackling the threat, she leaves her home to head to London, to fight a battle that will end all wars, discovering all her powers and her real destiny in the process.

Let’s take a look at the posters for the film:

The trailer of the film has been widely appreciated, with some critics comparing it to Captain Planet. The Wonder Woman team also participated in an event organised by the United Nations focusing on work for gender equality and named Wonder Woman as an Honorary Ambassador.

Speaking about the titular character, the director of the film Patty Jenkins said, “What I love about her is her belief in mankind and in what mankind can be.”

Wonder Woman certainly looks different from any of the previous comic- book films and we cannot wait to watch a female superhero on screen saving the world for once, without wanting to be saved by another man.
