Trailer Watch: A Throuple Makes Comic Book History in “Professor Marston & The Wonder Women”

“Professor Marston & the Wonder Women

“I’m going to inject my ideas right into the thumping heart of America,” announces esteemed psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans, “Beauty and the Beast”) in a new trailer for Angela Robinson’s “Professor Marston & The Wonder Women.” He’s convinced that the best and most efficient way to disseminate his views is not through publishing articles in esoteric academic journals but by writing a comic book — one about an Amazon princess who lives on an island of all women, wears a burlesque outfit, and fights Nazis.

“Nobody — and I say this with all the compassion and truth in my heart — nobody will will ever publish this,” his wife and fellow researcher, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall, “Vicky Christina Barcelona”), is sorry to tell him. Happily for William — and “Wonder Woman” fans around the world — Elizabeth turns out to be wrong.

Inspired by true events, “Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” tells the story of “Wonder Woman” creator William and the women who inspired the iconic character: Elizabeth and the married couple’s lover, Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote, “The Man in the High Castle”). William, Elizabeth, and Olive aren’t just fighting to bring an unconventional heroine to the masses — they’re also fighting for their right to have an unconventional relationship despite intense social pressure and judgment.

“Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” follows on the heels of the release of Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman,” which has now grossed over $821 million worldwide, making the blockbuster the highest-grossing live-action film ever helmed by a woman.

Robinson most recently worked on the Shondaland series “How to Get Away with Murder” as a consulting producer. Her other credits include “True Blood,” “The L Word,” “Herbie Fully Loaded,” and “D.E.B.S.

“Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last month to strong reviews. The biopic opens in theaters this Friday, October 13.

Angela Robinson to Co-Adapt “Strangers in Paradise” with Its Creator

An issue of “Strangers in Paradise”

Angela Robinson’s “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival less than a week ago, and the writer-director has already announced her next project. A press release revealed that she’s teaming up with cartoonist Terry Moore to adapt his long-running, award-winning graphic novel series “Strangers in Paradise” for the big screen.

The story centers on “Katchoo, a beautiful young woman living a quiet life with everything going for her. She’s smart, independent, and very much in love with her best friend, Francine. Then Katchoo meets David, a gentle but persistent young man who is determined to win Katchoo’s heart. The resulting love triangle is a touching comedy of romantic errors until Katchoo’s former employer comes looking for her and $850,000 in missing mob money,” the press release details. “As her idyllic life begins to fall apart, Katchoo discovers no one can be trusted and that the past she thought she left behind now threatens to destroy her and everything she loves, including Francine.”

“I’ve been wanting to adapt Strangers in Paradise for over a decade, since the first time I read it and couldn’t put it down,” Robinson said in a statement. “Terry Moore writes real female characters with such breathtaking sensitivity. With ‘Strangers in Paradise’ he pulls off the nearly impossible — a sexy, stylish crime story with tons of heart. I look forward to our collaboration!”

Moore added, “Angela and I have known each other for years and I greatly admire her creative vision. From Day One our common goal was to bring ‘Strangers in Paradise’ to the screen. It’s a complex story that took years to write and Angela gets it on every level. I can’t wait to get started!”

While the press release doesn’t specify, it seems likely that Robinson and Moore will co-write the screenplay and the former will direct.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” hits theaters October 13. Inspired by true events, the film tells the story of “Wonder Woman” creator Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans, “Beauty and the Beast”) and the women who inspired the iconic character: his wife, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall, “Vicky Christina Barcelona”), and lover, Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote, “Man in the High Castle”). The biopic traces their polyamorous relationship and the role it played in “Wonder Woman’s” creation and reception.

“I came at this from the starting point of being a Wonder Woman fan,” Robinson has said of the project. “It was really important for me to tell the story of the Marstons and also honor and respect the character that they actually created.” She explained, “To me it was always a love story. I did a ton of research and I thought about the Marstons so much. And at the end I just tried to make a film about three people falling in love and I wanted you to feel like you feel when you fall in love.”

Robinson’s previous credits include “How to Get Away with Murder,” “The L Word,” and “Herbie Fully Loaded.”

Trailer Watch: Learn the Story Behind Diana Prince in “Professor Marston & The Wonder Women”

“Professor Marston & The Wonder Women

Wonder Woman” has now grossed over $765 million worldwide, making the Patty Jenkins-directed blockbuster the highest-grossing live-action film ever helmed by a woman. For many, Diana Prince’s origin story served as an introduction to the Wonder Woman character. Others were already familiar with the beloved comic book heroine. But few know the controversial story behind her creation. Inspired by true events, Angela Robinson’s “Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” tells the story of “Wonder Woman” creator Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans, “Beauty and the Beast”) and the women who inspired the iconic character: his wife, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall, “Vicky Christina Barcelona”), and lover, Olive Byrne (Bella Hathcote, “Man in the High Castle”).

“I think you long for an unconventional life,” Olive tells Elizabeth in a newly released trailer for the drama. And it’s clear that all three of the film’s protagonists desire just that — but realize that defying the norm, be it professionally or personally, carries a heavy toll. We see Marston reprimanded by a colleague (Connie Britton, “Nashville”) who says that “Every issue of ‘Wonder Woman’ is filled with violence, torture, and sadomasochism.” And as for the romance between Marston, Olive, and Elizabeth, the latter seems to think “it can never happen” because “the world won’t let it.”

Robinson most recently worked on the Shondaland series “How to Get Away with Murder” as a consulting producer. Her other credits include “True Blood,” “The L Word,” “Herbie Fully Loaded,” and “D.E.B.S.

Check out the trailer to hear Olive’s take on why “a woman must not be told how to use her freedom.”

“Professor Marston & The Wonder Women” opens October 27.

Thor: Rangarok To Get Score From The Lego Movie's Mark Mothersbaugh

via Getty Images

It looks like Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the Thor franchise has found its composer. According to TheWrap, the folks over at Marvel have hired Mark Mothersbaugh to take on the job. While not a household name, Mothersbaugh has a great deal of experience in Hollywood, and his score include that of The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street, The Royal Tenenbaums, and of course, Herbie Fully Loaded, among countless other films and creative projects. The composer is also notable as the lead singer, co-founder, and keyboardist for the New Wave band Devo, which remains active today. Thor: Ragnarok marks Mothersbaugh's first Marvel film.

Admittedly, I haven't been completely thrilled by what Marvel has had to offer moviegoers on the musical front. Their Cinematic Universe is a franchise that begs to have several amazing themes throughout, but instead, when all said and done, the only memorable composition from

Lindsay Lohan's Idea For A Grown-Up 'Mean Girls' Sequel

Lindsay Lohan's Idea For A Grown-Up 'Mean Girls' Sequel
The star shared her ideas on how a good 'Mean Girls' sequel could be made.

Did you love the classic 2004 teen comedy Mean Girls? Of course you did, you're only human. Well, it turns out that Lindsay Lohan really loved that movie too.

16 different ways that films make money

Box office is one way a film makes its cash: but what are the others?

I know you’ll have noticed this by now, but it’s definitely called show business for a reason. It’s not show show art, show entertainment or even show exhibitionist impulse. Unless movies make money, the money to make movies would dry up pretty quickly. But where does this money come from?

Actually, that’s an easy one. It comes, almost entirely, from you and me and people like us. The real question should be how does this money get from our back pockets and into the coffers of the big movie studios.

Some of the pathways are incredibly obvious, some perhaps a little less so. Let’s take a look at 16 of the ways that movies make money.

Arrested Development Creator Mitch Hurwitz to Direct Comedy Guinea Pigging

After bringing Arrested Development back from the dead on Netflix earlier this year, creator Mitch Hurwitz is ready to step into the feature film world. THR reports that Hurwitz will direct the comedy Guinea Pigging for Fox 2000 with Night at the Museum scribes Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant writing the script. The story is based on a 2008 New Yorker article about the world of people who make a living acting as test subjects for drug companies, hospitals, and pharmacies.

Though Lennon and Garant have made a living penning more family friendly pics like The Pacifier and Herbie Fully Loaded, the Reno 911! duo have also written

  • Cinelinx
It’s not always the actors that are the stars of a film. Sometimes it’s the car. Here’s our list of the 10 most iconic cars in movie history.

Much like in our everyday modern life, cars are a big part of movies. They have created many memorable moments, been a part of many exciting action sequences, and helped to define characters clearly.

These are cars that, when seen in real life, conjure up images of their movie counterparts. These cars have infiltrated popular culture and become historic icons of both film and motoring.
