‘The Shape of Water’ and ‘Big Little Lies’ dominate the 2018 Golden Globes nominations

Golden Globe Awards 2018

The nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced in Los Angeles this morning with Guillermo del Toro’s acclaimed fairy tale love story The Shape of Water earning seven nominations, the most of any film, including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Sally Hawkins.

Surprisingly enough, though, while some of the most talked about, beloved films of the year such as Get OutThe Big Sick, and The Florida Project were snubbed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, others such as The Greatest Showman and All the Money in the World, both of which weren’t necessarily expected to receive much praise this awards season, walked away with three nominations each.

Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine bring first ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ footage to Comic-Con

Published

Wonder Woman Panel

“I hope we can keep it in this room,” Patty Jenkins told the thousands of superfans that filled San Diego Comic-Con’s cavernous Hall H. She was about to show off some very early footage from her eagerly anticipated sequel Wonder Woman 1984 … so early, in fact, that the movie still has 20 more weeks of shooting still to come.

Will those fans keep their covenant with Jenkins? We’ll soon find out, but in the meantime, Vulture can tell you what we spied from the new film, which throws Gal Gadot’s superheroine into the 1980s, brings back Chris Pine, and introduces a new foe in Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah.

The latter two actors didn’t appear in the clip we were shown, a fun action sequence that featured Gadot’s Wonder Woman fending off gunmen in a very 80’s-looking mall food court. (If you’ve been paying attention, it’s the same one we saw a confused Pine wandering around in his first still from the film.) As she strides toward the evildoers, Wonder Woman catches the attention of a grinning little girl, and her priority immediately becomes protection. “Hold tight,” says our heroine as she picks up the girl and super-hurls her away, sliding the kid across the food-court floor. Don’t worry: The girl giggles the entire time, loving the ride, and crashes safely into some plush teddy bears.

After that, Wonder Woman focuses her attention on the bad guys and quickly disarms them, crushing their guns with her super-strength. As a final flourish, she whips out her lasso and entangles both men with it, then pulls a move straight out of Atomic Blonde by using their weight as ballast to leap off the top floor of the mall and land three stories down below. It’s a sequence with pep and pop that feels like something Lynda Carter would love, and it was followed by an unrelated shot of Wonder Woman running at super-speed through a city street, so fast that the passersby might as well be standing in place.

Jenkins couldn’t tell us much else, though she teased the mystery resurrection of Pine’s character and explained why the movie is set in 1984: “It was mankind at its best … and worst. It’s us at our most extreme.”

Can this sequel live up to the original movie, which became a critical and box-office phenomenon? “The bar is very, very high, but our aspirations are even higher,” Gadot said.

“I never want to do more of anything for the wrong reason,” Jenkins added. “I don’t even want to go to that place in my head of how you keep it going and cash in. I want to make great movies in my lifetime … we can make a whole new movie about something completely new, and as unique in its own right as the first one.”

‘Aquaman’ trailer teases James Wan’s action-packed underwater adventure starring Jason Momoa

Published

Aquaman
WARNER BROS.

Warner Bros. has released the long-awaited first trailer for Aquaman, the highly anticipated next chapter in the DC Extended Universe from director James Wan starring Jason Momoa as the titular superhero, and it appears to be exactly the kind of film the franchise needs right now.

Described as an “action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas,” Aquaman reveals the origin of the half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry (Momoa) and takes him on the journey of a lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be a king.

Wan directed Aquaman from a screenplay written by David Leslie Johnson/McGoldrick and Will Beall, based on a story created by Geoff Johns, Wan, and Beall. The film also stars Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, and Nicole Kidman as Arthur’s mother.

“I wanted to create a superhero film that we’ve never quite seen before,” James Wan told the audience during the Aquaman panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon. “I wanted our film to be more unique. So my movie plays more like a science fiction fantasy film than a traditional superhero movie.”

Aquaman is set to hit theaters on December 21. You can check out the newly released trailer for the film in the embedded player below.

“I’m mostly just excited about trying something different,” Sandberg, whose previous work includes Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation, told Siver Screen Beat in an interview last year when asked if making the switch from the horror genre to the comic book genre could prove difficult for him as a filmmaker. “I’ll definitely be making a return to horror at one point or another. I’m just really excited to try something different.”

Shazam! will hit theaters on April 5, 2019. You can check out the newly released trailer for the film in the embedded player below.
