The biggest blockbuster of the year, Wonder Woman, will be released tomorrow, August 29th, on digital download services but if you want a sneak peek as to what kind of bonus features will be included in the Blu ray, then check out this clip that features director Patty Jenkins directing the beach sequence from the film.
The beach sequence in the movie features the German war machine from World War I descending upon the mythological island of Themyscira – home of the Amazons. The scene features the Amazons rappelling alongside a cliff while firing arrows towards the invaders. Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor are caught in between the warring factions with clashing swords, horseback combat and gunfire erupting all around them.
The film’s director, Patty Jenkins offered this insight into filming that sequence:
“The beach battle was defined by one thing, which is Diana’s point of view. She has grown up with this idyllic, romantic idea of these Amazons all around her and battle and training. And she wants to be one of them. She’s seen them train in a very fair and organized way, where they all fight, and there are rules.”
“So this battle, what was fascinating to me [is] it’s the first time Diana sees her own people turn and this other side of them, which is brutal and capable and willing to wage a battle and she sees the brutality of man.”
As of now the sequel is already in development with Gal Gadot attached to play the Amazon princess with Jenkins currently in talks to be the director.
Wonder Woman will be available on digital download on August 29,2017.
