New to Theatres This Weekend: Wonder Woman, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, Dean

The folks at Warner Brothers are hoping to reverse recent box office trends and the public perception of the DC Extended Universe this weekend with the release of Wonder Woman. Early reviews seem to be strong but there is still a question of whether a female-led superhero movie can put up numbers that compare with other recent blockbusters. Hopefully the movie will soon put this debate to rest. The other wide release is Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, which should be able to take advantage of the lack of family films in theatres right now. In limited release, we also have Demetri Martin’s indie dramedy Dean, a Spanish language remake of 3 Idiots, and the Chinese action epic God of War (no relation to the video game). What will you be watching this weekend?
