First English trailer for anime ‘Mary and The Witch’s Flower’

Founded by Studio Ghibli veterans Yonebayashi and Yoshiaki Nishimura and employing the majority of the animators from Studio Ghibli when it announced it was ceasing feature production, Studio Ponoc’s first feature is Mary and The Witch’s Flower featuring the same lush and evocative animation Studio Ghibli was so legendary for, carrying the torch forward into another generation.

Like some of the favourite Studio Ghibli films, Mary is based on an English Children’s novel – The Little Broomstick by Mary Stewart, and tells a story of a young girl called Mary who finds a mysterious flower that can give her the power to become a witch, transporting her to a school for witchcraft and wizardry that harbours a dark secret. The English dub of Mary and the Witch’s Flower will feature Ruby Barnhill, Kate Winslet, Jim Broadbent, Ewen Bremner and Louis Serkis.

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.

Wonder Woman Launches Oscar Campaign

Wonder Woman Launches Oscar Campaign
Warner Bros. finally got their Dceu superhero universe back on track with Wonder Woman, which has become not only one of the highest-grossing movies ($412.4 million domestic) of the year, but also one of the most critically-acclaimed (92% on Rotten Tomatoes) as well. There had been a report from late July that claimed Warner Bros. was planning a Wonder Woman Oscar campaign, and now that has been confirmed, with the studio launching an official "for your consideration" website for Wonder Woman, along with three more potential Oscar contenders, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 and Chris McKay's The Lego Batman Movie.

The studio only has three more movies coming out this year, with this weekend's disaster thriller Geostorm, Justice League (November 17) and the comedy Father Figures (December 22), so it seems that Wonder Woman, Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 and The Lego Batman Movie represent the studio's best chance

Warner Bros. Launches Wonder Woman’s “For Your Consideration” Page As Oscar Momentum Builds

Diana Prince, Oscar winner?

Five months on from the release and subsequent success of Wonder Woman ($821 million) and Warner Bros. is beginning to double down on the film’s fledgling Oscar campaign by launching its official “For Your Consideration” page.

Diana Prince herself, Gal Gadot, is also in contention for Best Actress, having brought the Amazonian to life with real gusto earlier this year.

Connie Nielsen (Hippolyta), Robin Wright (Antiope) and Elena Anaya (Doctor Poison) are among those submitted for Best Supporting Actress, while Warner has also earmarked Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), David Thewlis (Ares), Danny Huston (General Ludendorff), and Ewen Bremner (Charlie) for Best Supporting Actor.

Wonder Woman 2 production start date revealed, Cold War setting possibly confirmed

With Patty Jenkins signing a bumper deal to return to the director’s chair and Warner Bros. setting a December 2019 release date for the film, it now seems we have word on when Wonder Woman 2 will enter production.

According to a listing on My Entertainment World (via Omega Underground), filming on the Wonder Woman sequel will begin in June 2018, with the production listing stating that “the sequel will be a pariod piece, with Princess Diana facing off against the Soviet Union during the 1980s”.

This would seem to confirm previous rumours, although it’s possible that the production listing has simply taken said rumours as fact until more information betcomes available.

‘Wonder Woman’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Eugene Brave Rock, Lucy Davis, Elena Anaya, Ann Wolfe, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Ann Ogbomo, James Cosmo, Martin Bishop | Written by Allan Heinberg | Directed by Patty Jenkins

Following her scene-stealing appearance in Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman finally gets her own movie. Yes, she brought the Junkie Xl theme with her, the whole thing revolves around the silly Dawn of Justice, and there’s an obscene amount of speed-ramping, but bear with it, because Wonder Woman is actually, refreshingly, breathtakingly good.

With a few additions, this origin tale tells the story of Wonder Woman as the comic book literate would recognise it: moulded from clay and raised as an Amazon warrior on the all-female island of Themyscira, Diana – daughter of Queen Hippolyta and King of the Gods Zeus – travels to the world of mortals

Lynda Carter has a firm response for James Cameron and his Wonder Woman criticism

While Wonder Woman has received near universal praise, Warner Bros.’ female-led superhero blockbuster has attracted a handful of critics – most notably filmmaker James Cameron, who back in August criticised the film as a “step backwards for the portrayal of women in movies.

At the time, Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins posted a measured response to Cameron’s remarks, and with the Avatar director subsequently stating this week that he stands by his comments, TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has now issued her own rather firm rebuttal via her Facebook page.

“To James Cameron -Stop dissing Ww: You poor soul. Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women–we are more than the sum of our parts. Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron–because I

James Cameron stands by his Wonder Woman criticism

Given that he’s just kicked off principal photography on his four Avatar sequels, you’d be forgiven for thinking that James Cameron would be solely focussed on his latest visit to the world of Pandora. However, it seems that’s not fully the case, as the filmmaker has been chatting to THR about his earlier criticisms of Warner Bros.’ blockbuster superhero movie Wonder Woman, where he’d described it as a “step backwards” for the portrayal of women in films.

“Yes, I’ll stand by that,” said Cameron. “I mean, she was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the ’60s. It was all in a context of talking about why Sarah Connor — what Linda Hamilton created in 1991 — was, if not ahead of its time,

Patty Jenkins praises the DC Extended Universe and its filmmaker-led approach, teases Wonder Woman 2 setting

With Patty Jenkins now officially on board the sequel to Wonder Woman, the filmmaker has been reflecting on her DC Extended Universe debut during an interview with The Toronto Sun, during which she took a moment to praise Warner’s handling of the Dceu and its filmmaker-led approach.

“There are a lot of great filmmakers around the DC universe and there are a lot of great characters,” said Jenkins. “My favourite thing about the DC universe is some of these characters have been the greatest, most original superheroes for decades. I think there’s just exciting things to be done with them ahead and lots of different people that I’m excited about seeing. All of us are very different and we’re all going to do different things. So I can’t wait to see the variety, personally.”

Jenkins also spoke about the creative freedom afforded to her by Warner Bros.,

Review: Wonder Woman

  • Comicmix
Having earned over $800 million, Wonder Woman has proven itself on many levels. In a year that started, more or less, with Hidden Figures, and with a summer that had three hits featuring women (the others being Atomic Blonde and Girls Trip) the female half of the movie going audience is finally receiving their due. Director Patty Jenkins has certainly shattered some records and glass ceilings along the way while Gal Gadot has now proven she can open a movie.

With Wonder Woman out today on Blu-ray from Warner Home Video, we have a chance to look back and enjoy it all over again. While it fits neatly in the larger DC Cinematic Universe thanks to the framing sequence, the movie largely works on its own with a vastly superior tone and vision than its predecessors.

There is sumptuous color representing Themyscira, home to the Amazons. All the scenes there are

Etta Candy Presents A Wonder Woman History Lesson In Latest Blu-Ray Clip

Coming out of Wonder Woman, you’d struggle to find anyone who could reasonably dispute one simple fact: Etta Candy was the unsung hero of Patty Jenkins’ success story.

In a movie teeming with delightful characters – namely Sameer (Said Taghmaoui) and Charlie (Ewen Bremner) – Etta Candy stood head and shoulders above the rest within Wonder Woman‘s supporting cast and here, you’ll see Lucy Davis’ character recount an Amazonian history lesson in order to trumpet the film’s impending Blu-ray release.

Pegged to arrive on September 19th, Wonder Woman‘s home video release comes packing a ton of bonus features, most notably the “Etta’s Mission” epilogue, which allows the Jenkins-directed solo movie to dovetail with the events of Justice League ahead of its own launch in November.

For a full rundown of what to expect next week, here’s a detailed preview of those additional features, ranging from

Getting Naked Again: Revisiting Mike Leigh’s Naked

Tom Jolliffe takes a look back at Mike Leigh’s 1993 film, Naked

The other day I attended a special screening at The Prince Charles Cinema in London. It was part of a specially curated selection of films (from Nfts) devoted to the vile and unlikeable. The first film of the series was Mike Leigh’s 1993 masterpiece, Naked. Leigh was there himself to introduce the film. It was a passing gesture more than anything, as I always feel of the self-effacing Leigh, that blowing one’s own trumpet isn’t his bag.

He did make mention of the film, in an odd way being a pre-cursor to a string of millennium themed films that would begin to populate cinemas leading up to the turn of the century. There is certainly a degree of fatalism running throughout the film, not least in the central character Johnny, who among other things is near

Patty Jenkins officially signs on to direct Wonder Woman 2

Many will not be surprised by the news, but it is now official that Patty Jenkins will return to the director’s chair for the Wonder Woman sequel, as per Variety. Gal Gadot will also reprise the role of the Amazon Princess for a December 13th, 2019 release date.

Since the release of Wonder Woman earlier this summer, there’s been a lot of talk over whether or not Jenkins would return for the eventual sequel. It was heavily assumed she would, especially after Geoff Johns revealed in June that he and Jenkins were working on the sequel’s script, saying “Patty and I are writing the treatment right now. The goal is to make another great Wonder Woman film. I had a blast making it with Patty the first time. We’ve got a cool idea for the second one.”

Jenkins had previously expressed her own excitement at possibly returning to the director’s chair.
