When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters in just a few short months, it will introduce several characters in the expansive DC Comics Extended Universe (DCEU), including Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. The actress is currently in production on her stand alone Wonder Woman movie, which has been shooting since November. Today we have even more photos from the set, which feature both Gal Gadot and Chris Pine in a World War I setting. The actress is also seen sporting her sword and shield, although she isn't in her Wonder Woman costume.
Chris Pine confirmed the World War I setting last month, and fans will be treated to a sneak peek of Wonder Woman during a new special on The CW Network which airs tomorrow, Tuesday, January 19 at 9:30 PM ET. Since production is still under way, it seems unlikely that this will be a full trailer, but hopefully we'll get some sort of a glimpse at this highly-anticipated movie. It has been rumored that the movie is set in Wonder Woman's homeland of Themyscira, along with World War I and present-day settings, details which will hopefully be confirmed during this special.Read More

Even though production is still under way, fans will get their first look at this highly-anticipated adventure next week. The CW is airing a half-hour special entitled DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League on Tuesday, January 19, which invites viewers behind the scenes of the exciting new movies coming out of the DC Films universe. The special culminates with the thrilling world premiere of the all-new trailer for Suicide Squad, DC's misfit crew of antiheroes forced into saving the world this summer, with director David Ayer. Hosted by filmmaker/writer/lifelong comics fan Kevin Smith, with special guest DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns, the special showcases the explosive landscape of DC's greatest heroes, kicking off with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in theaters this March, and with a sneak peek from the upcoming Wonder Woman feature film.
The supporting cast that also includes Ewen Bremner, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis and Saïd Taghmaoui.

If the first set photo from Wonder Woman is any indication, Steve Trevor is a love from Diana Prince's past. And yes, part of the movie does take place during World War II. Co-star Saïd Taghmaoui has shared this sneak peak as the DC Comics movie begins shooting. And we get our first glimpse of him alongside Chris Pine in costume.
Wonder Woman is said to begin shooting in London at the end of this month, before moving on to Italy. But it looks like things are up and running this morning. It's believed that Italy will stand in for Prince's home island of Themyscira. And it's speculated that what we're seeing here is a moment captured in time from the rehearsals. Chris Pine is playing Wonder Woman's longtime love interest Steve Trevor. And it seems we may be getting a romantic plot twist similar to the one between Captain America and Agent Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Read More
Disney's The Finest Hours is the incredible true story of the U.S. Coast Guard's most dangerous sea rescue. The film is an adaptation of the best selling book by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman. In the winter of 1952, a powerful nor'easter capsized the oil tankers, SS Pendleton and SS Fort Mercer, off the coast of Massachusetts. A group of intrepid sailors, led by Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), took a rescue boat into the storm. They faced impossible odds with temerity and skill, earning a storied place in history for their valiant efforts.
Movieweb was invited to the set of The Finest Hours in Quincy, Massachusetts last November. The production was fairly secretive at this point. Apart from the title, which was obviously correlated to the book, I had no idea what to expect on this trip. A small cohort of reporters were flown into Boston's Logan airport, then bussed forty-five minutes north to the set in Quincy. The Disney online publicist, part of a very well-liked team I might add, gave us our first details. The Finest Hours stars Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Casey Affleck, Kyle Gallner, and Eric Bana; with direction by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl, Million Dollar Arm). Our publicist extraordinaire told us that we would be observing some of the most intense scenes in the story. She wasn't kidding. What we saw that day was knock your socks off amazing, filmmaking on an epic scale.Read More
