Though much about Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ highly anticipated Wonder Woman movie is being kept tightly under wraps, it’s going to be damn near impossible for the studios to avoid some details leaking out during filming.
Now, thanks to the Daily Mail, which snapped some set photos from Southend, Essex, where the Patty Jenkins-directed blockbuster is currently rolling cameras, it’s been confirmed that (as previously reported) the first part of Wonder Woman takes place during World War I.
Gal Gadot stars as the lasso-carrying warrior princess, who will be introduced next year during Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (set shortly after Man of Steel, in modern times). Confused? Despite her youthful appearance, Wonder Woman will apparently age much slower than us mere mortals, and she’s been around for a long, long time.

The parameters, mutually agreed upon by my editor Danny Kasman and myself, are these: A bi-weekly (every two weeks) column, entitled "On Mubi / Off," covering two films—one currently available on the Mubi streaming platform in the United States, the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc). The movies may share some similarities in approach, execution and theme, or they may not. Mostly, my own interests and curiosity will dictate what films are covered and in what way, and I hope you'll find the prose, the pairings, and/or the analysis compelling enough to follow along.On MUBITerminal Island (Stephanie Rothman, 1973)Sight unseen, I thought Stephanie Rothman's 1973 exploitation cheapie Terminal Island would make for a good inaugural article lead-off—something Z-grade disreputable to complement the A-level sleaze (not necessarily a criticism) of the other movie covered in this column.

While we get our introduction to Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman next year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, her own solo movie is coming in 2017, and to mark the start of shooting, Gadot has shared through Twitter a new image of DC Comics' warrior princess. Really digging the shot of Big Ben in the background. The photo also coincides with a full cast list, that also includes Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David, Thewlis, Ewen Bremmer, Said Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, and Lucy Davis. Looks like the rumours of Nicole Kidman as Hippolyta, and Sean Bean and Eva Green pulling double villain duties were just that. Released: June 23rd 2017 »

According to Batman-News.com, we have our first look of actor Chris Pine ("Star Trek Beyond") in full costume as Steve Trevor in director Patty Jenkins "Wonder Woman" standalone film starring Gal Gadot ("Fast & Furious 6") in the title role. Filming for Patty Jenkins "Wonder Woman" will commence this month in the UK which is slated for a June 23rd, 2017 release date.
The picture in question also confirms the casting of French actor Saïd Taghmaoui ("American Hustle", "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra"), as the photo came from the actors Facebook account. Taghmaou appears to have a substantial supporting role opposite to Pine's Steve Trevor as the actor posted a photo of his crew chair next to Chris Pine's and Gal Gadot's.

Showtime has offered a taste of the third season of its Victorian-era thriller “Penny Dreadful.”
In a photo released Thursday, Eva Green’s Vanessa Ives is shown struggling with the evil forces within her through the help of Patti LuPone’s American therapist, Dr. Seward. A new character this season, Seward is attempting to treat Vanessa with an unconventional approach.
“Penny Dreadful” Season 3 premieres in 2016 on Showtime.

Penny Dreadful Season 3 is still many months away, but that isn’t stopping Showtime from giving fans of the horror series a first look at what’s to come. Unfortunately, things don’t appear to be getting any better for Vanessa in Penny Dreadful‘s third season, as this brand new photo shows Eva Green’s character turning to her alienist Dr. Seward (Patti LuPone) for help in battling the evil forces she cannot seem to escape. Per Showtime, Penny Dreadful Season 3 will feature, LuPone, who guest starred last season as the Cut-Wife, in the new series-regular role of Dr. Seward, an American therapist who treats Vanessa with an unconventional new approach. Wes Studi (Hell On Wheels, A Million Ways to Die in the West) is a new series regular starring as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett) who also becomes an »

Showtime has released the first image from Penny Dreadful‘s upcoming third season, and it features a straitjacketed Vanessa being comforted by psychiatrist Dr. Seward (newly-minted series regular Patti LuPone) in what looks like a padded cell. The network’s accompanying release says Seward is helping Eva Green’s tormented alter ego “battle “the evil forces she cannot seem to escape.”
Back in September, producer Deborah Snyder confirmed that production on Wonder Woman was set to begin in November, although an exact date was not given. While it still isn't ultimately clear when principal photography may begin, it seems that it may happen soon, if we're to believe cryptic tweets from producer Geoff Johns. On Monday, the producer tweeted to director Patty Jenkins, stating "It's The Day". And yesterday, he sent out a photo from "Ricksmansworth England," which is apparently "very very nice." On Sunday, set photographer Clay Enos sent a photo from his flight while crossing the Atlantic Ocean, and while he doesn't specifically state that he's going to London to work on Wonder Woman, it certainly seems possible. If that wasn't enough, Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, released a photo from her morning workout earlier today.
Do all of these clues mean that Wonder Woman is shooting soon with production already underway? »
When naming the best and most influential actors who have portrayed James Bond, one might expect George Lazenby to pop up at the end of the list. After all, he only starred in a single film as the famous spy. However, Lazenby’s one entry, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), is now recognized as one of the finest entries in the series. Timothy Dalton, who only bested Lazenby by one film, is now the more likely actor to be forgotten by fans. When compared to the creative renaissance of the Daniel Craig films, the Dalton films seem tonally jumbled and driven to excess where more recent Bond films are focused and lean. But despite their failings, the films prefigure Daniel Craig’s interpretation of the Bond character by introducing a darker, weathered Bond.
Dalton’s path to playing James Bond was inauspicious: originally considered for On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, »

Ricky Church completes his countdown to Spectre…
As with Daniel Craig’s previous James Bond films, Spectre explores the character’s inner darkness, further examining what makes him tick. It also builds off the other installments, connecting all of Craig’s Bond films together in an effective way (even if it does retcon certain elements from this new canon).
When Bond receives a cryptic message, he sets off on a personal mission to discover the origins of Spectre, a secret organization that bends the world to its will. Spectre however is connected to Bond’s past in more ways than he realizes, putting the secret agent in greater danger than he’s ever been in. Without the aid of MI6, it’s all up to him to stop Spectre’s nefarious plan.

For reasons that escape me consciously, I’ve never been caught up in the James Bond phenomenon. I understand why the series holds such an allure to so many people—fast cars, beautiful women, cliffhanging action sequences, a dashing leading man, etc. And it’s not as if I’ve managed to live my life, to be on this planet for nearly 30 years, and not see a James Bond movie. However, until very recently, I’d only seen the movies where either Pierce Brosnan or Daniel Craig played 007. A year ago, out of sheer curiosity, I revisited a few of the Sean Connery-era Bond films, movies like Goldfinger and From Russia with Love, and found them more cheerfully antiquated than propulsive or purely entertaining.

We’ll have to treat all of this as a rumor for now of course, but Heroic Hollywood reckon they’ve uncovered some very interesting information regarding the motivations of the villains in Patty Jenkins’ solo Wonder Woman movie, which is scheduled to begin shooting in London very soon.
We’ve already heard that Ares (possibly Sean Bean) and Circe (maybe Eva Green) would serve as the main antagonist in the film (though this is still unconfirmed), but now we might just have details on what drives them, and how they come into conflict with Gal Gadot’s Princess Diana.

New details about the apparent plot of the solo "Wonder Woman" movie at Warner Bros. Pictures have arrived - mostly regarding the villains Ares and Circe in the film.
Potential Spoilers Ahead
According to Heroic Hollywood, Ares will serve as the main villain and uses Circe as a pawn to get what he wants: an ancient Amazonian sword that could allow him to take over Olympus.
His motive is to start World War III in order to feed off of the energy generated by the massive amount of death and destruction that would result, giving him enough power to gain possession of the sword.
Circe keeps Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) busy and even becomes a Chimera in the final battle. Batman makes a cameo and will confront Wonder Woman about what happened when he meets her in 'Dawn of Justice' during which Diana »

Is Wonder Woman's main villain directly tied into the chaos of Batman v Superman? It's no secret that Dawn of Justice will kick-start Warner Bros.' massive DC Comics universe. This epic adventure will set up Justice League Part 1 (November 11, 2017) and Justice League Part 2 (June 14, 2019), along with a number of stand alone movies featuring Suicide Squad (August 5, 2016), Wonder Woman (June 23, 2017), The Flash (March 23, 2018), Aquaman (July 27, 2018), Shazam! (April 5, 2019), Cyborg (April 3, 2020) and Green Lantern Corps. (June 19, 2020). While we wait for more official images and footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a new report from Heroic Hollywood sheds light on Wonder Woman's place in the story. If this latest rumor is true, it adds more evidence to the possibility that her standalone movie is a prequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Ricky Church continues his countdown to Spectre with a review of Quantum of Solace…
Though the James Bond series is over 20 films long, it is very rare any of them contain continuity references to the previous films. It is rarer still for a Bond film to follow-up on a previous film. This makes Quantum of Solace unique in the franchise as it is a direct sequel to Casino Royale.
Following Bond’s capture of Mr. White, Bond takes it upon himself to discover and dismantle Quantum, the mysterious organization behind Le Chiffre’s operation and Vesper’s betrayal and suicide. This leads him to Dominic Greene, an influential environmental activist who also happens to be one of Quantum’s top leaders. Bond’s quest, however, puts him at odds with M as she believes his drive for revenge is interfering with his better judgment.
While Quantum is an adequate Bond film, »
