‘Wonder Woman’ International Trailer Features New Footage, Russian Accents

     October 16, 2016


A new international trailer for Wonder Woman has landed online that gives us peeks at a few pieces of new footage—albeit in Russian. Indeed, the trailer is dubbed in Russian without subtitles, but in terms of dialogue scenes there doesn’t seem to be much we didn’t already see in the film’s debut trailer this past July. The crux of the new footage is either action or location-centric, giving us a tiny peek at what’s shaping up to be one hell of a superhero film.

The visuals on display both in this trailer and the debut trailer are incredibly promising. Director Patty Jenkins and cinematographer Matthew Jensen (Chronicle, Game of Thrones) have struck a visual palette that doesn’t shy away from the grim and grit of the World War I setting, but also doesn’t drown out the color of Gal Gadot’s glorious Wonder Woman costume. It reinforces the idea of Wonder Woman as a shining beacon of hope in a time of great sorrow, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the film has in store. 

At this point, Wonder Woman is the DC Film I’m most looking forward to. Gadot’s character was a standout in her brief introduction in Batman v Superman, and while Justice League should be exciting from a team-up point of view, the collaborative nature of BvS’s third act and the group effort of Suicide Squad gives off a bit of a “been there, seen that” vibe whereas Wonder Woman is a true origin story more in line with Man of Steel. That, plus the World War I setting and diverse ensemble promise that Wonder Woman will stand out.

Take a look at the international trailer below. Scripted by Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg, Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Said Taghmaoui, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, and Lucy Davis. The film opens in theaters on June 2, 2017.
