"Gigi, you are one of the few people on this planet I would leave my baby for for one night," Serena said as she presented Gigi with the supernova award. "It shows how much you mean to me and I want you to imagine the effect you have on the world." Serena then went on to praise Gigi for being a trailblazer, adding, "She

Patty Jenkins: ‘Wonder Woman’ is More Than Just a Superhero Film, It’s a Call to Action
Don’t call it a torch-passing, but a torch-sharing. At last night’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards, held at Brooklyn’s historic Kings Theatre, the lauded magazine handed out its annual awards to the women who have made the biggest mark on 2017 in all areas, from politics to culture, sports to journalism. Honoree “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins was hailed for her work on the smash hit superheroine film, and original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter was on hand to introduce a gamechanger who she’s very happy to also call her friend. Can’t we all be Wonder Women together?

“She got the essence of Wonder Woman because it lives inside her,” Carter said. “She took the challenge of this miracle of an idea and a ’70s iconic TV show and she made the ‘she’ become the ‘we’ on the big screen all over the world.”

In a tribute video dedicated to Jenkins,

‘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

Blu-ray Review – Wonder Woman (2017)

Wonder Woman, 2017.

Directed by Patty Jenkins.

Starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewan Bremner, Lucy Davis, Eugene Brave Rock, Emily Carey, Lilly Aspell, and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Synopsis:

After a fighter pilot crash lands on her home island, an Amazonian princess leaves the safety of her home and joins the battle of Wwi, discovering her superpowers along the way.

It would be fair to say that the DC Extended Universe has gotten off to a fairly shaky start with some mixed reactions to the three movies already released, those being Man of Steel, Suicide Squad and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, Wonder Woman, film number four, has proven to be a step in a more positive direction with a theatrical run that brought millions of paying customers through cinema doors to see the first full big screen adventure for the Amazonian princess.

Kate Winslet to Reunite With James Cameron in ‘Avatar’ Sequels

Kate Winslet to Reunite With James Cameron in ‘Avatar’ Sequels
Kate Winslet has come on board James Cameron’s “Avatar” sequels, reuniting with the director two decades after they collaborated on “Titanic.”

“Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years, since our collaboration on ‘Titanic,’ which was one of the most rewarding of my career,” Cameron said. “I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life.”

The four sequels will hit theaters starting on Dec. 18, 2020 for “Avatar 2.” “Avatar 3” will open on Dec. 17, 2021, followed by a three-year break for “Avatar 4,” set for Dec. 20, 2024. “Avatar 5” will then debut on Dec. 19, 2025.

Cameron began filming the first of the four Fox movies last week in California. The creator of the original “Avatar” — the 2009 fantasy epic that remains the all-time worldwide box office champion with $2.8 billion — first announced plans for four pics in 2016. He had initially envisioned two sequels, but after meeting with the screenwriters, artists,

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

Lynda Carter Calls Out James Cameron's Wonder Woman Disses

Lynda Carter Calls Out James Cameron's Wonder Woman Disses
The original Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, has spoken out against James Cameron's "dissing" of Patty Jenkins' big screen adaptation of Wonder Woman. Lynda Carter played the character in the 1970s-television series and for many, she is still Wonder Woman after all of these years of keeping the character alive while we all waited for DC to finally release a movie. Wonder Woman came out and exceeded everybody's expectations while simultaneously breaking records along the way, but one Hollywood director was not happy about the way the titular character was portrayed on the big screen.

James Cameron spoke out in August about the movie not breaking ground for women in any way shape or form. In addition, he inferred that Wonder Woman should have been more like Sarah Connor in his Terminator 2, saying that Diana Prince should have been flawed and not as pleasing on the eyes as Gal Gadot is.

Lynda Carter Calls Out James Cameron For His “Thuggish Jabs” At ‘Wonder Woman’

  • The Playlist
There are a lot of opinions worth doubling down on, but James Cameron picked the wrong fight when it comes to “Wonder Woman.”

Last month, the director of five “Avatar” movies dismissed the DC hit, declaring the superheroine “an objectified icon,” calling the picture “a step backwards,” and then trumpeting his own Sarah Connor from “The Terminator” movies as the ideal female heroes should strive for.

Original ‘Wonder Woman’ Lynda Carter Hits Back at James Cameron: ‘Perhaps You Do Not Understand the Character’

Original ‘Wonder Woman’ Lynda Carter Hits Back at James Cameron: ‘Perhaps You Do Not Understand the Character’
It’s the Hollywood feud that no one saw coming. In late August, filmmaker James Cameron — who, of course, is known for his work with genuinely strong, unique female characters — came out against Patty Jenkins’ blockbuster “Wonder Woman” in a strange interview with The Guardian, in which he bemoaned “all of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood” did over the film, deeming the praise “so misguided.” By his estimation, “She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing” and a “step backwards.”

Now television’s original Lynda Carter has come out against Cameron, who recently double-downed on his thoughts in yet another new interview. She’s not happy, and we can’t blame her.

Lynda Carter Fires Back at James Cameron's 'Thuggish' 'Wonder Woman' Criticisms: 'You Poor Soul'

Lynda Carter Fires Back at James Cameron's 'Thuggish' 'Wonder Woman' Criticisms: 'You Poor Soul'
Lynda Carter is weighing in on James Cameron's derisive Wonder Woman remarks, and needless to say, the TV icon isn't having any of it.

Carter -- who famously played the Amazonian warrior princess in the live-action Wonder Woman television series from 1975 to 1979 -- took to Facebook on Thursday to call out the Avatar director for continuing to criticize the recent Wonder Woman film, as well as director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot.

"To James Cameron -Stop dissing Ww: You poor soul," Carter wrote. "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," she continued. "This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron--because I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So--stop It."

Lynda Carter to James Cameron: ‘Stop Dissing’ ‘Wonder Woman’

Lynda Carter to James Cameron: ‘Stop Dissing’ ‘Wonder Woman’
Lynda Carter, who famously portrayed Wonder Woman in the 1975 TV series, took to Facebook to call out “Avatar” director James Cameron for his negative comments regarding Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman.”

“You poor soul,” she wrote. “Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. I know, Mr. Cameron — because I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So — Stop It.”

Cameron’s original comments, which he recently doubled down on, came in early August, when he criticized “Wonder Woman’s” favorable reception. He called the film’s glowing reviews “misguided,” and said that Wonder Woman was “an objectified icon.” He continued that the film was “a step backwards,” and that his own creation, Sarah Connor of the “Terminator” franchise, was a better female protagonist.

These comments elicited a response from Jenkins at the time, who wrote in a tweet that Cameron’s “inability to understand” Wonder Woman was
