Cool Videos: Check out this incredibly bad ass concept trailer and poster for Wonder Woman!

Feb. 27, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

Cool Videos

Now this is impressive. Latino-Review has an exclusive promotional trailer for WONDER WOMAN up, and it's a doozie. First though, some background information:

Jesse V. Johnson has been a stuntman or stunt coordinator for such films as THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, THOR, and BEOWULF. He's also directed a few films like THE PACKAGE and THE BUTCHER. Johnson is interested in working with bigger studios so he decided to shoot a concept trailer to show off his talents. The idea to do a trailer for WONDER WOMAN was his manager's:

It was my manager / producing partner Kailey Marsh’s idea to shoot the trailer.  She really believes I should be a studio director, and thought shooting Wonder Woman would be a great way to show off my skills in a fun way that people could get excited about.

Jesse V. Johnson and his team at Station Three gathered a crew together that included Nina Bergman (as the lead), actor Peter Stormare, and cinematographer HC Van Urfalian to work on the trailer and it looks fantastic. Dear DC: THIS is how you should do a Wonder Woman movie!

You might not all agree with that statement (there's a little too much 300 style slow motion at times, but it IS just a concept trailer) but it is certainly better looking than the David E. Kelley Wonder Woman pilot that NBC rejected. There's definitely a Captain America vibe to it (and not just because there are Nazis in it) and that's a good thing in my opinion.

And it doesn't hurt that Nina Bergman looks incredibly hot in those shorts.

Hopefully like previous directors that have made concept trailers to gain notice (Kevin Tanchareon's MORTAL KOMBAT: REBIRTH and Dan Trachtenberg's PORTAL: NO ESCAPE), Jesse V. Johnson will get someone's attention and he'll be rewarded with a sweet studio deal.

Take a look at the poster and video below. Is this the Wonder Woman you'd want to see on the big screen?

Wonder Woman Concept Poster

Extra Tidbit: I also really like how Jesse V. Johnson has captured Wonder Woman's Amazon spirit. Wonder Woman isn't just a pretty face that can do a roundhouse kick: she's a warrior that at times can be incredibly brutal and has a bit of a temper, both of which are on display in this trailer.

Fuck, I'm glad I saw that. I no longer have any doubt that a Wonder Woman anything will suck.

For an original fan trailer it actually looks great. I imagine with a budget a pretty good film could be made. I like Nina as Wonder Woman. This was basically to show off stunts/choreography, so the whole concept of true story and secondary characters is a moot point. It is a promising effort, understanding that there is no film. It is as good as any Sci-fi original trailer.

That was fucking Terrible

Wonder Woman is a great character and very similiar to Thor in that they both come from places where they have their own civilization and when they encounter ours, they are almost God-like creatures. They should just follow the template of the THOR film and/or the animated WONDER WOMAN feature which was great. And they need to get rid of the poom poom shorts and give her some pants.

Well, points for effort I guess, but the way Nazi Germany setting was portrayed made me immediately think of Uwe Boll's Bloodrayne: The Third Reich. I couldn't help it.

I've read the comments

I agree. WWII is not the way to go because then she's a female Captain America. Wouldn't it be a bit awkward if she is 20 years old in 1940? Wouldn't that make her 93 today? I know that Wonder Woman doesn't age in the comics but, come on. And what did she do after 1945? Did she lie on the beach for seven decades? If she is a female warrior and she believes in American causes then shouldn't she have served in Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.?

But the tone is right. I

But the tone is right. I imagine a Wonder Woman movie which is like a female version of the Expendables with Amazon warriors training on Paradise Island and then a Drug Lord hears a rumor about an island populated only by women and he thinks he can take it over and use it to grow cocaine but it turns out to be the last thing he should have done because the men he sends to Paradise Island are all brutally killed and then the Amazons come looking for him.

Wonder Woman isnt at thors power level, thor would beat her in a fight, just one good hit to the face with Mjolnir and lights out.

Nothing about this says wonder woman with the exception of her outfit, and even that is not all that great. OK for some other type of film, but not wonder woman. What happened to her strength, flight, yada, yada, yada.......

Nah

Wonder Woman shouldn't be UFC fighting, she should be launching people over buildings. She's a far more fantastical character than this piece gives her credit for.
Ironically, and I've been saying this since before Avengers, but the main person (in my eyes) who could pull of a fantastical, mythological, action comic book movie with a strong female presence is....Joss Whedon. He wouldn't try to go "gritty" with anything, but neither would he just doll some hot chick up for the sake of it. he'd

Far too late for that now though, of course.

Awful. Even ignoring the terrible poster, and giving them the benefit of the doubt for a presumably tiny budget, this lacks any kind of appeal and is just too "generic action movie". It shows no true appreciation of the character, the whole thing just feels soulless and indeed pointless. It takes way more thought than this to get Wonder Woman right.

I don't mind the slow-mo and the hand to hand combat and I actually like the look of Wonder Woman. However for a trailer it's not very enticing. It doesn't tell anything about who or what Wonder Woman is. It's just too generic.

I hope not.

I firmly believe Wonder Woman is impossible to translate into a film. Trying to ground her in reality would be a silly attempt to me. That costume? Come on. I can't suspend disbelief that much. Something like The Green Lantern would be the only way to make her story work, and we all know that story wouldn't work.

Also, why did it go from fighting Nazis to modern day Los Angeles? I get that it's a trailer, but how about some context? This just seemed like some fight choreography they wanted

Not just a trailer, a fan made trailer. These people had no budget, no story script, they scrapped together costumes, lighting actors, guns, and splashed something together. Considering all that it is a good effort. It wouldn't be acceptable as a trailer if there were really a film of this quality.

The only thought I had while watching this was how shitty Wonder Woman is. I might be cynical but does anyone actually still care if a Wonder Woman movie is even made???

Besides not having the slightest clue as to what the the character of Wonder Woman is all about, that trailer just looked awful. You tried to make it" gritty and realistic" and you failed.

Believe it or not, the performance by everyone who acted was solid. The true reason why this trailer failed was due to the post-production and editing. On top of that, the score they used wasn't appropriate for a WWII period piece.

Yuck

She looks gross and dirty... Wonder Woman needs to be less grimy and more clean. The girl isn't even that attractive either. She hardly fills out the outfit and does nothing but roll around in the dirt in this fake trailer. It looks like Uwe Boll directed this and not the so good its bad Boll.

I got to agree with Bleakseason

The hip-hugger shorts make her look ridiculous. In order for the character to be taken seriously, she needs to look more like a warrior, and less Baywatch vs. Hitler.

I applaud him for the effort, but as with every other incarnation of WW I just can't take seriously a woman who weighs 125 kicking ass wearing a bright as hell costume and in biker shorts. Now when they did the show in the 70's it wasn't meant to be serious which made it perfect.

interesting

While I have to agree with appeared, and was gone.... she is basically the female equivalent of Superman, and I cant see Nazis giving her that much of a problem let alone capturing her, and she probably wouldnt need to go full board fighting them like that, she could just be tossing them, maybe the director doesnt fully understand the character, but that being said I do think this shows a Wonder Woman movie could work, DC just needs to get Johns to over see it and clean up the mistakes made in

Doesn't work... that effing costume. This character will never translate well to the screen until people give up on this frickin' costume. When the guy in this short is calling her super-woman or something, and we're treated to a shot of her ass in those daisy-duke shorts... that doesn't work. The character is interesting, but give up on the costume.

Wonder Woman is virtually the female-equivalent of SUPERMAN. Why is she kung-fu-fighting nazis like Captain America? She should be swinging tanks like nunchaku. I understand budget constraints, but don't treat Wonder Woman like a ninja.
