“It is our sacred duty to defend the world and it is what I am going to do.”- Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman
Warner Bros. just released the official trailer for Wonder Woman which stars Gal Gadot as the titular character. The clip, although 2 and a half minutes long, gave us a few hints of what’s in store for us from DC’s highly anticipated 2017 movie.
The trailer starts off with Diana (Gal Gadot), who seems to be frolicking in present day Paris, looking back to the past as she glances at a vintage, black and white photograph of herself with Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). This gives us a heads up that the film would probably start in the present before setting the whole thing in flashback mode or perhaps, the other way around. For sure, the movie will take place in two time periods.
“I used to want to save the world, this beautiful place, but the closer you get the more you see the great darkness within. And I learned this the hard way a long, long time ago.” This line stems from a moment in Diana’s life when she loses someone dear to her, which results to her better understanding of good and evil. This in turn leads to Diana’s departure from her paradise as she journeys into our world where she would not only be battling men with guns but also a moral conflict within herself.
We get to witness Wonder Woman using her Amazonian weaponry as she fights alongside humanity in the first World War which is dubbed as “the war to end all wars”. Diana shows off her quick bullet deflecting skills and lasso swinging prowess, and proves that she is not to be messed with.
And the last (but definitely not the least), the movie will surely be filled with Diana and Etta sharing witty conversations. At the 2:11 mark, Diana is baffled at how annoyingly poofy her dress is and asks Etta, “How can a woman possibly fight in this?” Etta then replies, “Fight? We use our principles. Although, I am not opposed to engaging in a bit of fisticuffs should the occasion arise.” Here’s hoping for more feisty yet very British Etta Candy one-liners in the film when Wonder Woman hits theaters near you this June 2017.
