There is already some speculation about "Wonder Woman" being nominated for Oscars, but the movie is already winning awards for its trailer.
After less than a week in theaters, Wonder Woman is already getting into the awards season flow. Of course, the real awards ordeal won’t kick off for several months—but there’s nothing wrong with getting ready a little early, right?Movie Trailer 21 has the complete rundown of the movies whose trailers won and had awards presented to them in Wonder Woman Wins Best of Show At Golden Trailer Awards.
On Tuesday night, the DC action film about the Amazonian superheroine picked up top nods at the Golden Trailer Awards, winning the best in show prize as well as best fantasy/adventure trailer. Open Road Entertainment and the AV Squad were honored for the Warner Bros. film’s “What She Is” trailer. In addition, the studio walked away with about 26 awards in all, for the trailers for films, including Lego Batman.
The 18th annual Golden Trailer Awards were held Tuesday night in Beverly Hills, with current box office champion Wonder Woman taking home “Best in Show.” Every year, the awards honor the best in film and TV marketing. Nominees are broken down by genre, advertisement type, and technical aspects like sound editing and graphics.In addition to winning Best in Show and Best Fantasy, "Wonder Woman" won Best Summer 2017 Blockbuster Poster and was nominated for Best Summer 2017 Blockbuster Trailer (won by "Atomic Blonde") and Best Fantasy/Adventure Poster (won by "Star Wars: The Last Jedi"). Three awards already, just for its advertising — not bad!
Speaking of winning, Wochit Entertainment reports ‘Wonder Woman’ Wins 2nd Weekend at the box office.
Not only will “Wonder Woman” hold on to the top spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row with an estimated $57.2 million, it’s also bringing in a holdover total higher than its DC predecessors, “Batman v Superman” and “Suicide Squad.” While “BvS” and “Squad” had much higher opening weekends than “Wonder Woman” when they were released last year — $166 million and $133.6 million, respectively — they both suffered a 67 percent drop-off thanks to poor critical and audience reception, with “BvS” making $51.3 million and “Squad” making $43.5 million.I'm sure I'll have more to write about "Wonder Woman" being nominated for awards beginning with the Teen Choice Awards next month. Until then, stay tuned for more about the speculative fiction nominees and winners in movies and television later this week.
