With Diana of Themyscira making her solo
While movies within the pop culture spectrum often times using cutting-edge technology to display the latest, greatest tools money can buy, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins took a more traditional route while filming the movie.
Instead of going with the new industry norm of filming the movie digitally, Jenkins decided to stick with her roots and chose to shoot the entire movie on film.
“I’ve come up
Jenkins went on to explain how she feels film provides a better quality feel to the final product, comparing the difference between digital and film to a cheap romantic comedy going up against a Coen Brothers-style comedy.
“But even like a Coen Brothers-style comedy, you can’t transcend the real world as effortlessly as you can. You can end up looking like a cheap rom-com or you can look like a Coen Brothers’ movie, it’s about the world you put in,” reflected Jenkins. “If you’re willing to pay very little more for an A-list actor versus someone who’s never acted before or if you’re willing to pay more for a better set than a cheaper set, why on Earth is it a big deal to pay a tiny bit more to shoot on the greatest medium in history of film. I’ll never get it.”
It seems safe to say that any further projects Jenkins helms will be shot on film and who blames her — early reviews of Wonder Woman are stating it’s the best film of DC’s shared cinematic universe.
