I am so happy they're making a movie and I will be there at the first showing - I'm corralling people to go with to make sure that first weekend box office haul is impressive - but I gotta say, I am less than impressed with the trailers.

It looks pretty, no question. My problem is, it seems heavy and ponderous; the trailer tries to make it look peppy and clever, like a Joss Whedon flick, but the jokes fall terribly flat; they aren't particularly clever, there's no rhythm, they land like stones.

I figure there are three possibilities. One, that's what the movie is like, in which case, this will be painful. Two, this is not a funny movie, it's not supposed to be a funny movie, the jokes are minor asides, and whoever made the trailer tried to manipulate it into something it isn't - in which case, it may be fine. It won't be a joking-around sort of movie, but that's okay; not everything has to be. Third, it is a funny movie, and they just made a bad trailer.

So, point is, maybe it'll work out. But I am concerned.

I will be waiting with baited breath. I doubt I'll go and see it in the theaters if you come back with love for it. But I want to WANT to go see it, and be excited when I can get my hands on a DVD when the time comes. I'll be hoping.

Well, I don't like Chris Pine so I'll be seeing it trying to tolerate him for Steve's sake. But even if it is a ponderous mess, Diana's action scenes look amazing. Finger's crossed?

I'm worried as well but I'm committed to supporting a female led action movie/superhero movie. I wish that if it were to be bad, that when the numbers drop off, they would be interpreted by TPTB that we wanted to see a female led movie, but we wanted a GOOD one, not a shitty one. I just don't trust that distinction to be made by the people with the money. So, I'm praying for it to be AMAZING.
