Wonder Woman 1984
Wonder Woman 1984 came out on Christmas Day. It's original release date was November 1st. It is the sequel to the first Gal Gadot "Wonder Woman" film which was released in 2017. It made over $800,000,000 world wide. Wonder Woman 1984 has made $118,200,000 worldwide which is not bad during the Pandemic. Especially when it was available online via HBO Max.
The story shows a determined Diana as a child participating in a contest against adults. The we meet the adult "Diana" played by Gal Gadot working at the Smithsonian Museum in 1984. When an ancient artifact came to the Gemology Department things started to change. Dr. Barbara Minerva, played by Kristen Wiig was studying the object and noticed her life changed when she wished she was more like Diana. The object granted her wish.
The object came to the attention of "Maxwell Lord", an entrepreneur/con man, played by Pedro Pascal. When "Lord" got hold of the object the world turned upside down.
People's lives were changed when their wishes were granted. A side effect is when the spirit of Diana's lost love, Steve Trevor, entered a new body. It was really cool seeing them together but in the end it didn't work out.
The movie had some ridiculous moments but compared to the current movies available it was very entertaining. It was sad but nice. We thought "Maxwell Lord" was too over the top. The villian "Aries" from the last "Wonder Woman" film was better. Even with this observation "Wonder Woman 1984" was very entertaining.
