Now, James Cameron says Wonder Woman is a ‘step backwards’? WTH? Read on and see why he is saying this…
While promoting the 3D re-release of his Terminator 2: Judgment Day, James Cameron attacked one of this years most popular movies. But we guess when you’re trying to get attention you go after the fan favorite film to get everyone to listen.
It’s like going for the toughest guy in prison when you’re the weakest in the room. Cameron is no stranger to movie with strong female characters in his films.
“All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over Wonder Woman has been so misguided. She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing! I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards. Sarah Connor was not a beauty icon. She was strong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit. And to me, [the benefit of characters like Sarah] is so obvious. I mean, half the audience is female!”
Does James forget that the movie was directed by a female, and starred a large portion of women in the movie?
The film was directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, Connie Nielsen and Lucy Davis.
What a great way to win the female audience James. Some where a bunch of women are saying #STFU!
