After her successful solo debut film back in 2017, Wonder Woman is back! This time, she’s in the 1980s! Just recently, Warner Bros. Pictures unveiled the first full trailer for “Wonder Woman 1984” and it quickly caught everyone’s attention. The teaser packed in all the action, drama, and excitement that made the first film a success!
Watch the trailer for “Wonder Woman 1984” below:
“My life hasn’t been what you probably think it has. We all have our struggles.” Gadot‘s Diana Prince says. She’s seen talking to Kristen Wiig, who now stars in the sequel as Cheetah. “Have you ever been in love?” Cheetah asks. To which Prince responds, “A long, long time ago. The screen then fades to a shot of a framed clipping of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s love interest in the first film. Quite apparently, the trailer’s title sequence doesn’t hold back in pushing the 80s vibe. They made use of block fonts and neon imagery to really make it known that the movie takes place in 1984.
“Life is good. But it can better. And why shouldn’t it be?” says Pedro Pascal‘s Maxwell Lord during an “infomercial”. And while he says this, the video shows Wonder Woman fighting off hostage-takers in a mall. She even steps up to two armed men and crushes their guns right off their hands. And to safeguard her identity, she also throws her boomerang tiara to destroy the security cameras that recorded the scene. Although the movie will introduce Cheetah, Wonder Woman’s famous arch-nemesis, the trailer shows that Maxwell Lors will act as the main antagonist. At least in this teaser, there seems to be no fight scene between the two superpowered women. More notably, Chris Pine returns to the scene, now in present-day 1984, as Steve Trevor. “I can save today, but you can save the world,” he relays as he reunited with the superhero. She then hugs him tightly, still completely surprised that he made his way onto the current era. This time, the roles have reversed between the two. Now, it’s Diana Prince who shows Trevor what the world is like now in 1984. She shows him the modern way of life, including the new technologies and the different ways that society has changed since the 1940s.
Of course, the action scenes still steal the show here. One even shows Wonder Woman staving off bullets with her glowing lasso. But in a poignant way, Trevor’s return seems to signify the importance for Prince to remember her self and her origins. “You know what you need to do,” he tells her, even in the face of danger. As he says this, the video shows a young Amazona running, as if training, which then transitions into Wonder Woman in action. Having survived countless eras, it looks like Diana Prince has forgotten that she is to keep people safe. Even if that means endangering herself and her new identity. “Wonder Woman 1984” will premiere on June 5, 2020. Gal Gadot and Chris Pine resume their lead roles, while Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig take on the antagonistic characters. Stay tuned on this space for more updates!
