Hollywood got it right - beutepanzer
Permalink   


I have just come back from watching the new Wonder Woman film with my wife (She even enjoyed it) 

It is set in WW1. There is a scene on a German Airfield where there is a captured British WW1 tank. A beutepanzer. It was a Mk iV male. How did that happen? How did a blockbuster Hollywood movie get the prop historically correct? Amazing

But do not get me started with their inaccurate poster which shows WW1 Wounder Woman lifting a badly drawn out of scale WW2 soviet T-35 over her head. The poster was an 'Epic Fail'

 The film is about a mythical amazonian woman with superpowers and you're worried that the historical facts might be wrong?

You took your wife to see a film called Wonder Woman?! If I done that I'd have been crucified.

Well ... if a woman will crucify someone for Wonder Woman .... then she knows nothing about Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston - one of the most famous psychologists and a fighter for womens rights.

I was more impressed by the Erhardt armoured car earlier in the film, wonder if the prop for that will appear again. A few other nice vehicles as well, some of which I've seen before, including the Foden steam lorry (although as it gets split in half presumably a prop based on the real thing, or a mixture of real thing and CGI)

The Beutepanzer that was shown wasn't all the clear. It was a night scene, so you could not really make out all the details. But i'm glad they did have one in the movie.
