Final Trailer For Angela Robinson’s Professor Marston & The Wonder Women Posted by Wilson Morales
October 9, 2017
Luke Evans (High-Rise, Beauty and the Beast), Rebecca Hall (Christine), and Bella Heathcote (Fifty Shades Darker) star in this biopic of 1940s Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston, the inventor of the lie detector and creator of the iconic Wonder Woman, who defends his feminist superhero against charges of ‘sexual perversity’ while at the same time maintaining a secret that could have destroyed him.
It is the 1920s, and William and Elizabeth Marston (Luke Evans and Rebecca Hall) are easily the most glamorous academics on the campus of Tufts University. Gifted young student Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcote) is drawn into the couple’s orbit. She takes Bill’s psychology class and soon becomes an invaluable research assistant: she sneaks the Marstons into a sorority “baby party,” an event that bolsters their provocative theories about dominance, submission, and eros.
Flirtation infuses the heady air of grand ideas until Bill, Elizabeth, and Olive become a threesome in the bedroom as well as the academy. Their arrangement will cost them dearly, but their struggle to live on their own terms prompts Bill to draw upon his research to create the lasso-wielding Amazonian goddess that would give girls someone to look up to in the male-dominated milieu of comic books.
The film also stars Connie Britton and Oliver Platt.
Robinson has directed the feature-length films D.E.B.S. (2004) and Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005).
Professor Marston & The Wonder Women hits theaters on October 13.
