Official Synopsis for ‘Wonder Woman’ Revealed

Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2nd, 2017. Check out the official synopsis for the film below:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Five of the Best Films at Cannes, Vanity Fair ‘Hell or High Water’ review

Five of the Best Films at Cannes, Vanity Fair ‘Hell or High Water’ review

VanityFair.com: It’s finally time we made it official: Chris Pine, jewel-eyed Star Trek hunk and onetime romantic foil for Lindsay Lohan, is a fine actor. We saw that in last year’s Z for Zachariah, and we see it here again in the similarly Southern-tinged (or, in this case, Texan-tinged) crime drama Hell or High Water, in which Pine plays one half of a brother-brother bank-robbing duo with a flinty stare belying a manly goodness. His brother, the volatile, devil-may-care one required of these kinds of movies, is played with effective energy by Ben Foster, but it’s Pine, with his terse solidity, who really makes an impression. Well, Jeff Bridges does too, as a rascally (and kinda racist?) Texas ranger on the hunt for the brothers, who are trying to raise capital to save their family’s ranch. Starred Up director David Mackenzie helms with muscle and panache, in both bracing action scenes and quieter moments of introspection, all framed gorgeously by cinematographer Giles Nuttgens. Sicario writer Taylor Sheridan’s script is sometimes not quite as profound as it thinks it’s being, but it has a nice way with words, lacing a pulpy modern-day western with traces of loss and despair. Hell or High Water opens in the States in August, so if you’re looking for a summer flick that doesn’t involve the destruction of entire cities but still packs a punch, this is a good bet.

‘Hell or High Water’ Reviews from Cannes

‘Hell or High Water’ Reviews from Cannes

So far the reviews coming in from Cannes Film Festival paint Chris in a very positive light regarding his role in Hell or High Water, which makes me extremely proud. Check out some quotes below:

Variety.com: Directed by Daniel Mackenzie, from a script by Taylor Sheridan (who wrote “Sicario”), it’s a gripping independent production that, with its fusion of offbeat star power and audacious storytelling, has the potential to be a mainstream hit, and possibly an awards contender.

Chris Pine, with his moody sleek glamour and bright blue bedroom eyes, has struggled to find serious dramatic roles that fit him as snugly as Captain Kirk, and this one is undoubtedly his breakthrough. As Toby, who’s divorced with two kids he hasn’t seen for a year, Pine is playing a sexy bad boy with some mileage on him, and he’s quietly mesmerizing. Toby knows how to spring into action, but his downbeat look expresses the pain of every mistake he’s ever made. Ben Foster, wearing a biker ‘stache and a spooked stare that dares you to stare back, makes Tanner an even badder boy, a thief who has spent years in prison and doesn’t have the patience — or faith — to go straight. He’s a sociopathic screwup who knows he’s a screwup (which sort of redeems him).

TheGuardian.com: Mackenzie’s direction and Giles Nuttgens’s cinematography create a kind of horizontal vertigo in the dizzying sweep of the landscape and there is a great soundtrack with original music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. It’s an action-thriller with punch; Bridges gives the characterisation ballast and heft and Pine and Foster bring a new, grizzled maturity to their performances.

Telegraph.co.uk: Pine, ever-improving, notches up new respect here for his stalwart underplaying, and Foster’s on fire: his late action scene with a machine gun is hilariously bad-ass, and shot with satisfying, let’s-do-this verve by Giles Nuttgens. The film also shares a cast member the Coens used: a venerable Texan actress called Margaret Bowman, who gets one film-stealing scene, credited as “T-Bone Waitress” – she spits out her lines with such deadly sass it’s only fair not to spoil her punchlines.

Chris Pine And Zachary Quinto Sign Deals For Fourth Star Trek Film

Chris Pine And Zachary Quinto Sign Deals For Fourth Star Trek Film

If – and despite the studio’s driving need for franchises and the evergreen nature of the title, it is still just ‘if’ – Paramount decides to make a Star Trek 4, it can count on Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock reporting for duty. Actors Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have renegotiated their contracts to allow for a fourth Trek adventure, in a move that also boosts their salary.

It’s all part of deal negotiations that have taken place as the third Star Trek movie – called, at least for now, Star Trek Beyond – finally cranks up the ol’ warp drive and moves into production, with Pine, Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg and the rest scoring wage raises along the way.

Not much is known about the third Trek movie’s plot so far – rumours have included more action with the Klingons – and Pegg, who has co-written the current script with Doug Jung, has said he wanted to get back into the exploration and adventure at which Star Trek excels. We do know that Justin Lin is the man guiding the action this time and the movie has started filming in Vancouver. It’ll arrive here on July 8 next year.

Chris Pine in Talks to Co-Star in ‘Wonder Woman’

Wonder Woman is about to get hot and heavy with Chris Pine. Sources tell Variety the “Star Trek” actor is in negotiations to join Gal Gadot in the upcoming superhero pic for Warner Bros.

Pine would play Gadot’s love interest Steve Trevor in the origin story. Warner Bros. had no comment.

Patty Jenkins, who recently replaced Michelle MacLaren, is directing from a script by Jason Fuchs. “Wonder Woman” will be released on June 23, 2017.

Charles Roven is exec producing the DC Comics tentpole for Atlas Entertainment. Zack Snyder, director of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” is also producing.

In the comics, Steve Trevor was an intelligence officer in the United States Army during World War II whose plane crashed on Paradise Island, the isolated homeland of the Amazons. He was nursed back to health by the Amazon princess Diana, who fell in love with him and followed him when he returned to the outside world. There she became Wonder Woman (and also his co-worker, Diana Prince).

Rumors had suggested that Scott Eastwood had landed the part, but insiders tell Variety that Eastwood was given a choice to test for the Trevor role or sign on for a guaranteed supporting part in “Suicide Squad,” which he opted to take.

Warners tested a handful of other actors but later decided to look at more high-profile names and go with a straight offer. Pine won over production execs and Gadot at his meeting, leading the studio to pursue him for the role.

Pine, having starred as Captain Kirk in the last two “Star Trek” movies, is no stranger to the fanboy world, but “Wonder Woman” will mark his first venture into cinema’s most popular genre and should lead to more opportunities in DC’s Justice League universe. Gadot’s Wonder Woman, of course, plays a key role in Snyder’s forthcoming “Batman v Superman,” which arrives next March.
