A new Warner Brothers film, Wonderland Cinema, is being released in theaters across the country this Friday.
The film, which stars Matthew McConaughey, will be the first time a male lead in a Warner Bros. feature has been introduced to the franchise, which started in 1966 with the release of Wonder Woman.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Michael Wilkinson revealed that he was drawn to the concept of a boy playing the part because of the nostalgia of being a boy growing up in a boy’s world.
“I remember watching Wonder Woman as a kid, and seeing that it was a little bit like a fantasy, that was a great way to explore a boy in the role,” Wilkinson said.
“It’s a little boy and a little girl.
I thought that was very similar to Wonder Woman, but that was my favorite part of Wonder, the worldbuilding and the story.
I wanted to try to take it even further and bring that boy into it.”
Wonderland is based on a 1939 children’s book by Dorothy Parker and is based in the same universe as the first two movies, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and The Wonderful Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, both of which were written by Lewis Carroll.
The first film, released in 1938, was a classic of the time, and featured the return of the Scarecrow, the titular hero.
The second film, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, was based on the story of Dorothy Parker’s sister, Emma, and starred Michael J. Fox as her nephew.
Wonderland’s story takes place in a magical land populated by magical beasts, but is also a very familiar one for audiences, as it takes place within the same world as The Wonderful, Wonderful Wonderful.
Wonderland will open on Friday, July 10, 2019, with previews starting Friday, June 22.
