On this superstar edition of the INTERVUE, imagine yourself going to a well-known museum, let’s say the world-renowned Smithsonian Institute, to take some courses on film and then somewhere down the road in the course of life, you put all that you have learned and take it back to your hometown. This is what happened with our next guest.
A graduate of Univ. of Southern California, Variety listed him as one of the “10 Cinematographers to watch 2017”. Over the course of his career, his credits include the films Chronicle & Fantastic Four and television series Ray Donovan, Game of Thrones, and The Mandalorian.

You can see his work now on Digital and coming soon to Blu-ray and DVD on March 30th!
My fellow readers welcome to the INTERVUE, DMV’s own Matthew Jensen!
Fan favorite Wonder Woman writer Gail Simone and Wonder Woman artist Aaron LoPresti are teaming up to tell a tale of an even mightier team up – Wonder Woman and Conan the Barbarian.
“I love crossovers, I love Wonder Woman, and being able to bring the undisputed greatest warriors of the DCU and Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age together for the very first time is a dream come true,” says Simone.
Wonder Woman/Conan will be in comics shops in the Fall.
How long has it been since we’ve seen a brilliant, completely unironic superhero movie? 2011’s Captain America: First Avenger. Before that? Probably Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978)/Richard Lester & Donner’s Superman II (1980).

Until then, Diana’s people are hidden on Themiscyra in the hopes that they may lead a peaceful existence. Continue reading Wonder Woman: Wondrously Worth the Wait→
Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Wonder Woman and it’s chock full of new footage – more battles, a few more quips and a sense of just how epic the film is intended to be.
Additionally, the trailer includes a good deal more of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor – showing that he’s more than just a DID (Dude in Distress). This is a guy who may not have superpowers, but is every bit as brave as Diana, Princess of Themyscira – and very good at his job.
This week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News is one of our most popular every year as the hosts each reveal their most anticipated films of 2017!

Following hard on the heels of yesterday’s release of the first poster for Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. brought the first trailer for the film to the Con today.
The trailer shows Princess Diana discovering Steve Trevor washed up on the shores of Themiscyra and quick moves through her arrival in Man’s World and its levels (poor fishing village, glittering party) before finding herself in the middle of WWI.
It looks amazing! See for yourselves – it unfolds just after the break.
