Annapurna Pictures has released the very clip from Professor Marston & The Wonder Women starring Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, and Bella Heathcote. The film, written and directed by Angela Robinson, is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and will open in cinemas across the U.S. on October 13th.
In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.
You can watch the very first clip from the film below. The film is set to release in the UK on 10th November 2017.
