Warner Bros. did a lot to inject a little hope into the film market's revival in 2020 via several blockbuster releases. Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman 1984” was one such release. Rather than delaying until 2021 and waiting for a more preferential market, the studio insisted on a 2020 release, making it Hollywood's last stand in a year marred by the pandemic. The stunning beauty and performance from Gal Gadot coupled with a story of greed versus hope also neatly reflected the chaotic world it entered. However, the film received mixed reviews that prevented it from soaring higher. In China, audiences complained that portions of the plot came across as naive and the production lacked enough exciting action sequences, including a deserved ultimate battle, which perhaps explains why the film has only grossed 166 million yuan so far. Whatever its shortfalls, Warner Bros. didn't seem too upset and is already busy working on the threequel.
