Wonder Woman Final Trailer Is Serviceable Enough
Wonder Woman Trailer
(Last Updated On: May 8, 2017)

Warner Bros., released the final promotional trailer for Wonder Woman ahead of release this June. The two minute and 45 second trailer recounts a lot of the footage we’ve already seen, aiming to lure moviegoers in for the final promotional push towards its theatrical run.

The trailer covers all the necessary narrative beats, including Diana’s mother forbidding her from going to the world of men, and Diana’s insistence on helping people when millions of lives could be at stake. The trailer does a fine enough job of balancing between action and story, while focusing on the team-up Diana has with the pilot, Steve.

The trailer was serviceable in its job of being entertaining and informative as to what the movie is about.

It doesn’t look remarkable or as some statutory statement of brilliant filmmaking… but it looks serviceable.

It’s a little hard to get thoroughly excited after watching, rewatching and watching that Blade Runner 2049 trailer again, and again. There was so much to glean from such little footage, but so much of it was poignant, and seemed to be everything that the new Ghost in the Shell lacked… or everything that it should have been.

On a positive note, Wonder Woman’s trailers have been astute enough to avoid diving into alienating its sci-fi and comic book fanbase with any heavy feminist themes. The marketing team seems to realize that attacking or demonizing its fans is a quick way to losing butts in seats when the movie finally hits theaters. In a way, it almost feels like Warner Bros., is walking a fine tightrope when it comes to promoting the film, because they desperately need a critical and commercial hit to make up for the big budget superhero failures they’ve been producing lately when it comes to review scores and feedback.

Wonder Woman could definitely be a toss up in terms of how good it is; but just like the trailer, I’m expecting something to be entertaining on a serviceable level.

The only thing the final trailer was missing was that absolutely awesome theme song put together by Hans Zimmer, Junkie XL and Tina Guo. That is easily one of the best superhero theme songs I’ve ever heard. In case you don’t know what it is, grab a listen below.

    They know how to make good trailers… Just wish they also knew how to make good movies, based on how terrible the last couple DCU movies where…

    I really hope this one is good though.

    I just heard she committed the damning sin of promoting protein bars, so they had to roll out a Wheelchair Woman campaign in a desperate attempt to satiate the unsatiable SJWs.

  • Horrorstorm

    I’d love a taste of her vag.

  • Bamf

    I’m excited for this. And Gal Gadot has expressed that she wants to Wonder Woman to be feminine and embrace those qualities and not squash them and try to be manly.

    She was pissed when Feminists yelled at her for shaving her armpits.

    “Serviceable enough”

    Talk about damning with faint praise. It needs to be a lot more than serviceable to rescue the DCU, especially since Justice League looks like it’s going to be a mess. I fear that this run of movies is going to tank the DCU entirely and we won’t see these characters done well on a big screen for another generations.

    I have to disagree about the theme, though. Zimmer does great atmospheric scores, but this isn’t a theme. You can’t hum or whistle a heavily distorted electric guitar riff.

      Believe it or not it’s actually an electric cello. Hans and Junkie were blown away by the way it sounded because their instructions to Tina was to “Make the cello howl like a banshee”, and this was the theme she came up with.

        I think there will be heavy feminist tones in the actual movie, it was a rumour unless they have gone back and removed that stuff for the reasons you said and maybe because that ghostbusters reboot crashed and burned.

        Not very hopeful for the DC movies anymore, for me they have been a mixed bag of being bad.looking bad and awful casting.
