Wonder Woman Launches Oscar Campaign

Wonder Woman Launches Oscar Campaign
Warner Bros. finally got their Dceu superhero universe back on track with Wonder Woman, which has become not only one of the highest-grossing movies ($412.4 million domestic) of the year, but also one of the most critically-acclaimed (92% on Rotten Tomatoes) as well. There had been a report from late July that claimed Warner Bros. was planning a Wonder Woman Oscar campaign, and now that has been confirmed, with the studio launching an official "for your consideration" website for Wonder Woman, along with three more potential Oscar contenders, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 and Chris McKay's The Lego Batman Movie.

The studio only has three more movies coming out this year, with this weekend's disaster thriller Geostorm, Justice League (November 17) and the comedy Father Figures (December 22), so it seems that Wonder Woman, Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 and The Lego Batman Movie represent the studio's best chance

Wonder Woman writer to pen Robotech movie

Back in July it was revealed that It director Andy Muschietti has signed on to helm the live-action Robotech movie for Sony, and now Deadline is reporting that the project has found a new writer.

According to the site, Jason Fuchs – who co-wrote the story for this year’s Wonder Woman with Zack Snyder and Allan Heinberg – has signed on to work with Muschietti on the script for the anime adaptation.

Robotech is based on the Harmony Gold USA series from the 1980s, and takes place on a Earth which has developed giant robots from the technology of a crashed alien spacecraft, and use the technology to fight off wave after wave of extraterrestrial invaders.

As yet, there’s no word on a potential start date for Robotech, but Fuchs will have time to work on the script given that Muschietti is now turning his attention to the second chapter of It.

We’ve been writing about a potential Robotech movie since 2007, when Tobey Maguire was planning to produce a big screen adaptation of the classic anime series.

Robotech movie to be written by Wonder Woman's Jason Fuchs

Shamus Kelley Sep 13, 2017

The co-writer of this summer's smash hit Wonder Woman will be space folding into the Robotech franchise.

The Robotech movie just gained one hell of a super boost. Deadline reports that Jason Fuchs, credited for co-writing the story for Warner Bros' recent Wonder Woman film with Zach Snyder and Allan Heinsberg, is on board to write the Sony feature film based on the cult 80s anime series.

Besides Wonder Woman, Fuchs has also notably written Ice Age: Continental Drift and Pan.

Back in July when Andy Muschietti was attached to the project as director, no writer had been assigned but Sony was confidant he'd find someone. With Fuchs now on board the project can hopefully start moving forward. The film has been in development for quite a long time with various writers and directors attached, including James Wan before Muschietti was brought on.

Robotech Movie Gets Wonder Woman Writer
With It remake director Andy Muschietti coming aboard Sony's long-gestating Robotech adaptation in July, the project has added another key creative addition with Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman) signing on to write the script. This adaptation has been in development for several years, but now it seems it may finally have a shot of making it through production. Still, the studio hasn't set a production start date or even a release date yet, but still it's good news for fans of the franchise who have been waiting years to see this story on the big screen.

Deadline reports that Jason Fuchs will be working with Andy Muschietti to craft a brand new story from scratch, meaning they will discard the drafts written by several different writers over the years. We first reported on this adaptation back in 2008, when Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan signed on to write the script. Since then,

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Adapted Screenplay

2018 Oscar Predictions: Best Adapted Screenplay
Sundance broke out Dee Rees’ post-World War II epic “Mudbound,” a script of sweeping ambition and detail adapted by Rees and Virgil Williams from the Hilary Jordan novel. Netflix picked up the movie for the Sundance 2017 record of $12.5 million, and plans a full-on Oscar campaign, despite a limited theatrical day-and-date release.

Also rising to instant Oscar contention was Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name,” an elegiac summer love story set in Italy, between a vacationing teenager (Timothee Chalumet) and his father’s researcher (Armie Hammer). Sony Pictures Classics will hit the fall festivals with the critics’ darling.

Cannes introduced Todd Haynes’ cinematic tour-de-force “Wonderstruck,” adapted by Brian Selznick from his own graphic novel, which intercuts two periods, the 20s and the 70s, in silent black-and-white and color with sound. The film is the Centerpiece gala at the New York Film Festival.

Also debuting at Cannes was director-prize-winner Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled,

Wonder Woman movie review: women’s work

MaryAnn’s quick take… Everything about this joyful, sincere origin story feels like a retort — a very welcome and much needed one — to traditional male-centered superhero stories. I’m “biast” (pro): I am desperate for stories about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

She’s done it!” an anonymous grunt cheers from the trenches at the Western front after Diana, Princess of Themyscira, Amazonian goddess warrior, has succeeded in crossing No Man’s Land to the German side and taken out the enemy, clearing the path for the soldiers to follow. And I cried tears of joy. Not because of the badassedly heroic depiction of a woman doing a thing women do all the time: come in, assess a messy situation not of her own making, and just tuck in and do the nasty, dirty job that a bunch

Zack Snyder's Cameo in Wonder Woman Unveiled

Zack Snyder's Cameo in Wonder Woman Unveiled
Now that Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman is a bona fide box office hit, fans will likely keep flocking to theaters for multiple viewings, to find hidden Easter Eggs that may be contained throughout the film. Today we have word of one such Easter Egg, the appearance of producer and Justice League director Zack Snyder, who appears in the background as a World War I soldier. It isn't known precisely when he appears in the movie, but the filmmaker posted a photo of himself in full Wwi costume on his Vero social media account.

The photo started surfacing on Twitter after the director initially posted it on Vero, but it first debuted back in March, when The Hollywood Reporter visited Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder's Cruel and Unusual Films office. The photo itself is quite reminiscent of the photo that was at the heart of this Wonder Woman tale.

‘Wonder Woman’: 4 Ways Director Patty Jenkins Broke D.C.’s Losing Streak

‘Wonder Woman’: 4 Ways Director Patty Jenkins Broke D.C.’s Losing Streak
After a record-breaking weekend at the box office (over $100 million in domestic returns alone, the highest-ever for a female-directed feature) and an enviable Rotten Tomatoes score of 93% Fresh, Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” seems poised to join the ranks of the superhero genre’s very best offerings, a new classic in the making.

After decades in on-and-off development, the Gal Gadot-starring feature landed at box office in dire need of a fresh new hero to liven up the bloated genre, and Jenkins’ film delivered to sold out, cheering crowds around the world. How did she do it? We’ve got some ideas.

1. Creating A Positive and Inspirational Hero

DC often opts for going “dark and gritty” in ways that other comic book properties (like the ones from Marvel and Sony) tend to avoid, a characteristic that’s become something of a hallmark for the Dceu franchise as a whole. Both

Wonder Woman Crushes with $100.5M Box Office Win

Wonder Woman Crushes with $100.5M Box Office Win
Heading into its opening weekend, the Wonder Woman box office tracking was inconsistent, at best. Most box office analysts had predicted an opening weekend debut between $65 million and $80 million, although some predicting a debut as high as $105 million. As it turns out, the latter estimate was more accurate, with Wonder Woman easily taking the top spot with $100.5 million. This tally breaks a box office record held by Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, as the highest opening weekend for a movie directed by a female director ($85.1 million).

There has been a huge wave of buzz building after the Wonder Woman early reactions started rolling in after the first press screening last month, with the movie scoring an impressive 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Box Office Mojo reports that Wonder Woman opened in 4,165 theaters, pulling in an impressive $24,131 per-screen average. The superhero adventure has also taken in an additional $122.5 million internationally

Wonder Woman Director Is Ready to Return for Present Day Sequel

Wonder Woman Director Is Ready to Return for Present Day Sequel
Armed with overwhelmingly positive reviews and a strong start with Thursday previews, Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman is poised to break out at the box office, and get the summer movie season back on the right track with a huge debut. There had already been talk of a sequel, with director Patty Jenkins teasing in an interview last month that she already has a Wonder Woman 2 story worked out. Today we have two new reports, one which reveals that Patty Jenkins wants to make Wonder Woman 2 set in present day, while producer Charles Roven confirms that a script for the sequel has not been written yet.

Last month, producer Zack Snyder, who also has a story credit with Geoff Johns and Jason Fuchs, confirmed that Wonder Woman 2 is in fact happening, although not right away. The studio plans on making a Batgirl movie first, and while there are plans in

Wonder Woman Scores Biggest Thursday Preview for a Female Director

Wonder Woman Scores Biggest Thursday Preview for a Female Director
Warner Bros. unleashed their highly-anticipated Wonder Woman in theaters last night for sneak preview screenings, just hours after reports surfaced that its opening weekend could bring in as much as $95 million. The Dceu superhero adventure took in an impressive $11 million, with the audience split evenly between males and females, a rarity among superhero movies, which are usually heavily skewed towards males. This could mean that the latest $95 million projection is quite accurate. This $11 million tally also represents the highest Thursday preview for a movie helmed by a female director, besting the $8.6 million earned by Fifty Shades Of Grey, directed by Sam Taylor Johnson.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the $11 million Thursday preview figure is on par with the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which brought in $11.2 million in 2014, en route to a $94.3 million opening weekend. It also earned more than 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger ($10.2 million, $65 million opening
