Wonder Woman 1984 is being simultaneously released on HBO Max in a bid to bolster the Warner Media streaming service. Gal Gadot-starrer Wonder Woman 1984 has collected $5.5 million over the New Year’s holiday.
Movie Reviews: Wonder Woman 1984
This long-delayed sequel to 2017’s hugely enjoyable superhero romp Wonder Woman was originally slated for release last Christmas, but it may be just the tonic we need right now.
Combining the colourful charm and romance of Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman with an empowering 21st-century gender-flipped sensibility, it shifts the action from the battlegrounds of the first world war to the bumbags and rolled-up sleeves of the US in the 80s.

The early reviews of Warner Bros film Wonder Woman 1984 are out, and so far, it seems like the film has not surpassed the expectations that were set by its predecessor.
Starring Gal Gadot, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal and Chris Pine among others, this Patty Jenkins film has been long-awaited by fans from all over the world.
Flight is easy, says Steve Trevor, the dishy American pilot who is Diana Prince’s love interest. It is “wind and air”, he adds. All you need to know is how to catch it, ride it, and join with it.
ut is that all there is to flying high? Certainly not when the flight path is as challenging as the one that Patty Jenkins’ 2017 megahit Wonder Woman set for the sequels.
When Wonder Woman released in 2017, it showcased a lighter side of the, at the time, quite dark and gritty DC Extended Universe, and now Wonder Woman 1984 takes that hope and lightness to even further heights.
For the sequel, director Patty Jenkins returns and takes on scripting duties alongside DC Comics writer Geoff Johns and screenwriter David Callaham (The Expendables).
The movie trades in Diana Prince’s (Gal Gadot) adventures in a World War I ravaged Europe for 1980s America, following the Amazonian princess long after she’s lost the surviving friends she gained in the first film.
