Chris Pine Talks Wonder Woman’s Theme and Patty Jenkins Directing the Daylights Out of It


Chris Pine in an interview with the Toronto Sun while promoting his latest film The Finest Hour, spoke a bit more on his character of Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman, the theme of the film, how it’s being filmed by director Patty Jenkins and speaking on how the film is taking place in World War I, which is a time period we don’t see often of in film. 

“Steve Trevor is a rogue-ish, cynical realist who’s seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization,” Pine said. “He’s a worldly guy, a charming guy and it’s going to be a great, fun film. There are some incredibly deep, interesting and morally relevant themes.

“Patty is just directing the daylights out of it. It’s shot beautifully feels so wonderfully period, but also has this wonderful pop sensibility.”

As for the Great War setting, he said, “it’s a period we don’t see often; it’s usually World War II. Our costume design is incredible. We have scenes with, like, 500 extras all in period dress. I’d never been on a film with extras casting as beautifully done as it is here.

“It highlights a really important point. When background casting is done well, it can make or break a scene. I’ve got people in deep background that have entire lives. It’s awesome, it’s actual make-believe land.”
