Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #50

Every week (or fortnight) At least once a month, Weekly Wonder Woman keeps you up to date on everything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine

With July 4th out the way, things have been perking up news-wise, you’ll be glad to hear…

Film news

Not technically film news, but Gal Gadot did go visit a children’s hospital in full movie costume:

We also got a glimpse of Kristen Wiig in action on the set of Wonder Woman 1984

Comics news

The new line up for Wonder Woman from November 14 has been confirmed. Ms Marvel‘s G Willow Wilson will be writing, while Cary Nord will be the new artist in residence. And that’s official:

Meanwhile, maybe you’d like to colour in Wonder Woman the Alex Sinclair way. Here’s how:

Comics reviews

The only appearance by Diana that I spotted was in the bumper-sized Wonder Woman anniversary issue this week – issue #50 – and it marks both the end of the Dark Gods storyline and James Robinson’s run on the title, before he hands over the reins to guest writer Steve Orlando.

Will he be much missed? Let’s talk about that after the jump…

What TV’s on at the BFI in August? Including the rest of the Harold Pinter season, Langrishe Go Down, Bodyguard and Bollywood: The World’s Biggest Film Industry

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

Not as jam-packed as July thanks to the summer holidays, August at the BFI still has a lot to offer. The Harold Pinter season continues on from last month, but there’s also two ‘Missing Believed Wiped’ sessions, celebrations of puppeteers Ivor Wood and Ray Harryhausen and previews of the forthcoming Bodyguard and Bollywood: The World’s Biggest Film Industry, complete with Q&As with cast and crew.

That’s after this week’s weekly play, Langrishe Go Down. Originally conceived for the cinema, and based on a novel by Aidan Higgins, this is a classic Harold Pinter work about passion, politics and class: in particular it shows his preoccupation with time and memory. Set on a run-down Irish estate, and cutting between the late and early 1930s, it charts a summer-long affair between a gentrified country girl and an exploitative Bavarian student. The cast is superb and the atmosphere distinctly Chekhovian.

No, I’ve not watched it. Yes, I have just copied and pasted that from the BFI guide. But I’m sure it’s great.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman 1984, HD Wonder Woman 1977 and Walmart Wonder Woman

Every week (or fortnight) At least once a month, Weekly Wonder Woman keeps you up to date on everything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine

Yes, yes, “Weekly Wonder Woman” is stretching it a bit, given WWW has been quiet for about three weeks. But why break up a perfectly good piece of alliteration for the sake of accuracy, hey? Plus I’m here now. Let us never mention it again.

Anyway, lots of news, lots of comics. Let’s get down to it after the jump, since there’s way too much to have on the front page. Alluring, hey? Come with me. Come… come…

Stargate Origins
Film

Stargate Origins – the movie is now available on iTunes

Call me a prophet. When I reviewed the first three episodes of Stargate Command’s 10-part Stargate prequel Stargate Origins, I suggested:

I wonder if the plan is to use it to build up interest in Stargate Command now and then maybe flog Origins on iTunes and other platforms later on.

Guess what. Stargate Origins is now available on iTunes as a movie for £13.99. Aren’t I amazing?

One of the reasons I suggested holding off on watching Origins after the first three episodes was that Stargate Command’s pricing model was unclear. Now it’s clearer:

The Stargate Origins feature cut in 4K* is available now on iTunes! Re-live the first trip to Abydos with young Catherine Langford as she embarks on an adventure to rescue her father and save the Earth from a spreading evil and an unimaginable darkness.

Get the Stargate Origins feature cut (approx. a $19.99 value) for free with the purchase of an All-Access Pass which includes access to all Stargate episodes, movies, and more for just $20!

So there you go. Buy the film on iTunes or get it and all the TV episodes, the episodic version of Origins et al for the same price. Obvious choice? Yes. Particularly given iTunes only works on Apple things and Windows, whereas Stargate Command works on all of those, including Apple TV, as well as Android and Amazon Fire. Roku users et al? Sorry – neither work right now, but I have higher expectations of Stargate Command coming up with something for you than I do of Apple.
