Wonder Woman hasn’t even been in theaters a week, and it’s already one of the top 10 highest-grossing movies of the year. And it’s already an award winner, too. Last night, the Golden Trailer Awards honored the DC superhero movie with its top prize of Best in Show. Wonder Woman also won the awards for best fantasy/adventure movie trailer and best summer 2017 blockbuster poster.
Technically, the movie itself isn’t being recognized, just parts of its marketing. Specifically, the spot called “What She Is” (see below) was recognized at the event, which names winners in 115 categories. Another DC Comics based release, The Lego Batman Movie, was the most-awarded movie, winning in five categories, including best animated/family film trailer, best voiceover in a TV spot and best radio ad.
Marvel won some, too: best opening weekend award went to Captain America: Civil War and best summer 2017 blockbuster TV spot went to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Also, Logan was honored for having the best music in a trailer. Oscar winners La La Land, Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea received honors alongside upcoming movies Baby Driver, Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049.
Another one of Wonder Woman‘s trailers, called “Darkness,” was nominated in the best summer 2017 blockbuster trailer category but lost to Atomic Blonde. And its “teaser” poster, which won the award mentioned above, lost in the fantasy/adventure category to Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
