Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
The character of Wonder Woman first appeared in DC’s All-Star Comics #8, published in 1941. More than seven decades later, she is one of the company’s most popular and recognizable characters, considered by fans to be one of the Trinity (along with Batman and Superman). Wonder Woman has appeared in several forms of media since her debut, including video games, animated series, and live-action. Lynda Carter famously portrayed Diana in a television series that aired in the 1970s. Warner Bros. had spent years trying to get a feature film version off the ground, before Gadot co-starred in 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Wonder Woman will return in the Justice League movie to be released in November 2017. It is unknown at this point if she will receive a solo sequel or not.

Humans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Now, it’s up to the unlikely alliance of Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), Bumblebee, an English lord (Anthony Hopkins) and an Oxford professor (Laura Haddock) to save the world.
The Transformers films are based on the toy line originally created by Hasbro and Takara Tomy in 1984. It revolved around the conflict between the heroic Autobots and villainous Decepticons and their ongoing struggle. When it was first launched, Transformers was a comic book series and animated TV show, and the franchise continued to expand from there. Michael Bay helmed the first live-action movie, which was released in 2007. He has since directed all of the installments released to date: Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon, Age of Extinction, and The Last Knight.
In keeping with the new Hollywood business model, Paramount is looking to create a shared cinematic universe for Transformers by alternating between entries in the main storyline and various spinoffs.

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension. From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
The Mummy is a reboot of Universal’s famous monster franchise. It was originally created back in 1932 as part of the studio’s monster film series. It gained popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s with a trilogy starring Brendan Fraser, which also spawned the Scorpion King spinoff series. Universal is positioning this new version with Tom Cruise as the first installment of a potential shared universe and have several other reboots for monster characters planned, including Frankenstein, Dracula, the Invisible Man, and others. Russell Crowe is appearing in The Mummy as Dr. Jeckyll to serve as connective tissue.
