Confirming the positive response from the lift of the social media embargo, critics are putting Wonder Woman up on a pedestal and giving it some of the best reviews a DC movie has seen since The Dark Knight.
As of writing, Wonder Woman is perched high on review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes at a 96% approval rating, having only received two negative reviews so far out of 44. This is a vast improvement on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s 28% and Suicide Squad‘s 25%, and a positive sign that the DCEU is heading in the right direction.
The positive word for Wonder Woman has been really great for the film. Last year a poll of most anticipated movies of 2017 by Fandango placed Wonder Woman fourth behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and a new poll a couple of weeks ago placed it as the most anticipated movie of the summer, following some great social media buzz.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman will hit cinemas on June 1st in the UK and June 2nd in North America, with Patty Jenkins (Monster) directing a cast that includes Gal Gadot (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Chris Pine (Star Trek), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator), Robin Wright (House of Cards), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Said Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), Lisa Loven Kongsli (Force Majeure), Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead) and Ann Wolf.
