Since Cathy Lee Crosby burst onto the big screen as the original Wonder Woman in 1974 there have several other versions of DC Comics’ legendary female superhero, but now Israeli actress Gal Gadot (Gisele from the Fast & Furious franchise) takes centre stage as the Amazon warrior-princess after a breakout turn last year in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Raised as a fearless defender of her island paradise in the early 20th century, young Diana meets Steve Trevor (Pine), an American pilot who informs her of the mighty war raging beyond her shores. Inspired to right the world’s wrong, she leaves for London to discover her true destiny and her full, unearthly powers. Gifted director Patty Jenkins (Monster) is behind the camera, overseeing a stellar cast that includes Robin Wright and Connie Nelson.
Director: Michael Bay.
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Stanley Tucci, Josh Duhamel. USA 2016. 149 mins.
“This is not a number five. This feels like a brand new, fresh look into the Transformers.” So says director Michael Bay, whose latest ’botbuster, The Last Knight, shatters the core myths of the hugely successful franchise. Optimus Prime is gone. In his absence, humans and Transformers are at war. The key to humanity’s survival lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. The fate of the world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English lord (Hopkins); and an Oxford professor (Haddock).
