Gal Gadot’s Diana Gets Her Sword in New WONDER WOMAN Photo

It’s the last Movie Morsels of 2016, folks! Which means we’ve tried to pack today’s installment with as much cinematic goodness as possible. For starters, we’ve got our latest look at Wonder Woman, featuring a key moment in the title character’s new origin sequence. Plus, a new photo from Alien: Covenant, word on man-god Bill Murray opening a Caddyshack-themed bar, and much more seasonal merriment…

Wonder Woman

I’ll admit I still have mixed feelings about the Wonder Woman featured in DC comic books of the last thirty years. Growing up in the ’70s and ’80s, my generation had a Princess Diana who–as her original creators William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter intended–was much more of a peace ambassador than a bloodthirsty warrior. So it saddens me a little that the image of Diana today’s kids know best is one with sword raised. Still, as far as that image goes, the upcoming Wonder Woman movie looks to do it justice, as we’ve seen in the film’s trailers and photos. The latest of which sees Diana first getting her “god killer” sword on her island home of Themyscira…

Alien: Covenant

Another day, another intriguing Alien: Covenant pic… Lately, Fox’s marketing efforts have played up the prequel’s connections to Ridley Scott’s original Alien, a push continued with the prequel’s latest photo–featuring a bloody medical bay not unlike the one John Hurt’s Kane was taken to when the titular creature first attached itself to his face in the 1979 classic…

The Lost City of Z

Time for a little real-life adventure… Amazon’s The Lost City of Z, based on David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller of the same name, chronicles the journeys of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who discovered an advanced civilization in the Amazon jungle in the early 20th century. Seeking to prove its existence despite his skeptical scientific colleagues’ discouragement, Fawcett wound up inspiring many a fictional “Lost World” story in film and literature. Starring Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, and our new Spider-Man Tom Holland, the film hits theaters in April. Here’s the very first trailer…

Sleepless

If you thought Liam Neeson was the only action hero whom bad guys take things from, think again! Jamie Foxx plays a Las Vegas cop on the edge whose son is kidnapped in the upcoming thriller Sleepless. The first clip from the film offers something unusual — a movie kitchen fight in which no one’s face is held against a hot stove!

Caddyshack

Finally today… As if we needed more evidence that Bill Murray is the coolest man alive, the actor is opening a bar and restaurant with his brothers that’s based on one of his most beloved early films — the immortal Caddyshack! To be located inside of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rosemont, just down the street from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, the “Murray Bros. Caddyshack” restaurant is actually the second of its kind, since there’s already one located in the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida; and so it already has its own website, encouraging one and all to eat, drink, and be Murray!
