Wonder Woman cinematographer Matthew Jensen has revealed which scene in the film was his favorite one to shoot, and for a kickass action film such as this, it might be a little surprising which one he chose.
While speaking to Slashfilm, Jensen revealed the scene that sticks out the most to him:
“My favorite scene, it turned out really great in the cut, and it was a beautiful, magical couple of nights when we shot it, was the dance sequence with Diana and Steve in Veld with the snow falling. They were so great when they were shooting together on set, we had music on set and it was a beautiful night, even though it was really cold. There was a romance in the air when we were shooting it, and I think that carried across in the movie.”
Jensen was then asked if he connected more with intimate scenes, rather than the more action-heavy ones. The cinematographer replied:
“Yeah, [with] action sequences, there’s so many little pieces that it’s sometimes hard to see them, get into the flow of them. When two charismatic people are relating, you can see that when you’re looking through the lens, and that’s the beauty of that kind of thing.”
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and Eugene Brave Rock. Here is the official synopsis for the film:
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman is in theaters now.
