PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMEN Clip (Video)
Annapurna Pictures has just released the first clip from Professor Marston & The Wonder Women starring Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, and Bella Heathcote.
In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston (Evans) 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 (Hall) and their lover Olive Byrne (Heathcote), 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.
The film, written and directed by Angela Robinson, is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Also starring Connie Britton, Professor Marston & The Wonder Women opens in theaters on October 13, 2017.
