'Wonder Woman' banned in Lebanon because lead actress is Israeli

'Wonder Woman' banned in Lebanon because lead actress is Israeli

Gone are the patriotic star-spangled undies of generations past: This Wonder Woman dares to wear a non-American miniskirt.

"I think the Hollywood aspect, we see this time and time again, it's cool to hate America these days", Mike Gunzelman said.

Baia, one of the show's guest, responded with her belief that "money" is the reasoning behind the lack of patriotism in "Wonder Woman".

With Wonder Woman opening in first place this weekend, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie will premiere in Second this weekend, following Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' second week drop.

Not that it was a particularly hard feat, but Wonder Woman is by far the best film yet in the DC Extended Universe.

If you were hoping an extended edition of Wonder Woman will be released in the future, you might end up disappointed.

I must confess, after the insanity of creating a "safe space" for women to watch this movie without any men in the audience, I walked into the movie theater with some trepidation, expecting it to be Ms. Magazine with flashy CGI and a soundtrack.

All well and good for the women in the audience, but for the male half, have no fear. The fight scenes are awesome.

That is a genius move, as it gives the film far more mainstream appeal, and while there's no surrendering of the film's source links they don't feel claustrophobic. If you haven't checked the movie out, rush to see it asap, you won't regret it. This is in no way a heavy handed propaganda movie. There's humor. There's the expected romance angle between Diana and Steve Trevor. I can't even remember how many in terms of interviews, but for the final test, I think that we tested six actresses. Robin Wright and Connie Nealson also make an appearance as Diana's Aunt and mother.

Was Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman American enough? The film should pull in anywhere from $900k-$1+ million for the weekend, which would put it on par with previous Pantelion releases debuting in a similar number of theaters and page view performance on IMDb. Wonder Woman has entered the box office arena with strong positive buzz. But it's generally more harmful for women because women are so commonly closed out of directing positions.

This kick off film takes its time in the over two-hour adventure, and will only get better with repeat viewings. So much so that even Chris Hemsworth - who plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - admitted on Twitter this weekend that Wonder Woman would probably beat Thor in a battle. "And we're really happy about that!" The Snyder-style speed ramping makes the action hit or miss, but the satisfaction of the big moments, like her first full in costume appearance, are suitably "it's about time"-worthy".
