Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week.
Regardless of how you feeling about the DC Cinematic Universe, it is easy to say that getting a franchise off the ground has not been an easy thing to accomplish. Now whose fault that is a whole other story whether it is the big Whigs from Warner Bros, Zach Snyder, or a combination of the two. Luckily, they got it right with WONDER WOMAN, a true origin story that does a good job of mixing classic Diana Amazonian roots with storyline that helps move the movie along in the right direction. Namely, Diana seeking to end the rule of a violent God that has come to Earth to corrupt all men. Gal Gadot, who was one of the best part of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, gives another powerful performance that it is both emotional and action packed.
