Warner Bros. has released a handful of new images for the “Wonder Woman,” featuring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer and Lucy Davis as Etta candy.
The photos arrive amid criticisms that the studio isn’t promoting director Patty Jenkins’ film as heavily as it did last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad.” However, it was revealed late last week that advertising spending for “Wonder Woman” is outpacing that for “Suicide Squad” at the same point in pre-release.
The first of the new stills shows Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor leading a group of men that appears to include Saïd Taghmaoui’s Sameer.
Another depicts Gadot’s Diana presumably shopping with Lucy Davis’ Etta Candy, while the third turns the focus on Taghmaoui’s Sameer.
Early projections place “Wonder Woman” on track for a $83 million domestic opening weekend, a figure that’s likely to be revised as the film inches closer to release.
“Wonder Woman” tells the story of the Amazon princess who, after discovering the body of American fighter pilot Steve Trevor washed ashore on Themyscira, sets out to bring an early end to World War I.
Opening June 2, the film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and David Thewlis.
