Let’s be honest: It’s been hard to stay upbeat in the midst of all the recent negativity in the world. But the premiere of Wonder Woman, DC Comic’s newest summer blockbuster, just might change all of that. In fact, it’s exactly what we all needed right now—really!
The movie stars actress Gal Gadot as Diana, the Amazonian warrior princess who meets a pilot (played by the dreamy Chris Pine) and leaves home to fight in the war of the century. Even though the film was just widely released in theaters, it’s already a huge hit among fans and critics alike.
Why? For one, it’s an epic adventure tale that’s jam-packed with fantastic action scenes and CGI effects. Plus, it showcases a female superhero, among the first of her kind. And overall, it’s just a great story about courage, love, and positivity in the face of destruction and despair.
These tweets just go to show that one movie can change your perspective on life—and restore your faith in humanity.
From the get-go, the minds behind the film wanted to promote a positive message to the world.

Fans reacted accordingly. At long last, Hollywood has made a movie by females, about females, and for females.
Not going to lie, I'm going to see Wonder Woman this wkend to support a $150m film directed by a woman.
So is every female filmmaker I know

Obviously, fans were pumped before they even got into the movie theatre. (Hyperventilating, anyone?)
