Lupita Nyong’o proves to be Wonder Woman’s biggest fan.
In a lengthy post shared via Instagram, the Oscar-winning actress penned a glowing review of the film, dubbing it “EPIC.”
“Ok people, I just left the theater and KNOW for CERTAIN that the GODS have seen fit to BLESS us with #WONDERWOMAN,” The Jungle Book star wrote on Instagram. “W.O.W. It is a superhero movie like none I have ever seen. Epic. FUN. Engaging. Stylistically Captivating. Funny in an honest, not-trying-too-hard way. Witty. Smart. Perfect length. Fierce. Sensual. Just amazing. @Gal_Gadot will glue you to the screen and at the same time make you want to run to the nearest costume shop to get your W on and join the #GODESSNESS right away (W = #WomanWarriorOfTheWorld).”
“Director #PattyJenkins IS NOT PLAYING AROUND, as she gives us some AMAZON REALNESS in an exquisitely directed story,” she continued. “Chris Pine is irresistible. The score is KILLER. And it is the type of film that I think you can enjoy over and over. This movie definitely goes down as a classic in its genre for me. @wonderwomanfilm #RunAndGoSeeIt#HadToGush #PromotionFromTheHeart.”
Also taking to social media, fellow actress Octavia Spencer raved over the DC Comic’s movie, writing, “I am so stoked that #WonderWoman is having her moment. To all of the mothers out there who want to influence your girls and educate your boys about the value of strong women, do yourselves a favor and make a date to take them to see this movie.”
She continued. “The #Amazonians aren’t just beautiful and fit, they are intelligent, speak many languages, and understand science. Yep, they have brains!!!!!” she continued. “Women of various body types and ethnicities had me on the edge of my seat. So much so, that I’m paying to see it again. But this time I’m going with friends. #BringABuddy.”
The film starring former Miss Israel, Gal Gadot is projected to earn up to $100M by the end of the weekend. It has already brought in $38.8M domestically and $47M overseas. In other words, Wonder Woman could be the biggest big screen event for DC Comics since the 2008 release, The Dark Knight.
