Wonder Woman and Alien Covenant




Two late Spring early Summer movie releases have hit the movie theater circuits.
 
One highly successful and the other disappointing at the box office.

Titan Books presents two oversize hardbound books dedicated to each.

‘Wonder Woman The Art And Making Of the Film’ by Sharon Gosling and featuring a foreword by Patty Jenkins (the director of the film), takes an up-close and personal look at the production of DC Comics movie that promises to rejuvenate the DC Comics movie franchise.

Featuring a slip cover with spot varnish photos and a gorgeous reproduction of the Wonder Woman movie poster on its cover, the book is a real feast for the eyes.

Readers are given a brief visual and text introduction to Wonder Woman’s comic book history and then are immediately swept into the spectacular cinema world of the warrior Amazon.

Pre and post production behind the scenes photos and information, as well as production cameo shots and visuals immerse readers into the amazing world of the premiere super heroine’s world.

Stunning pro and post production art and photos of set pieces, costumes, character designs, weapons, period pieces and more fill page after page with luscious full-color art and photos.

No detail is left out: from costume fittings to weapon and fight training to the amazing computer visual effects.

Just as impressive is ‘The Art And Making Of Alien Covenant’ by Simon Ward.

The book examines the latest chapter in the Aliens movie franchise with candid behind-the-scenes shots, creature, set and costume designs, character bios and a plethora of movie magic.

It’s a remarkable book that examines every nook and cranny of the making of the film showcasing full page color photos, cast and crew comments, exterior shots, computer and practical visual and stunt effects and an unsettling look at the carnage caused by the Alien creatures.

If you love the Alien movie franchise you’re sure to want this book.
