Jenkins

Jenkins is enjoying her time in the DC Comics universe. After soaring into the commercial stratosphere with “Wonder Woman” (2017), which became the all-time highest-grossing film directed by a woman, earning $821 million worldwide, she signed on to direct its sequel, “Wonder Woman 1984,” for a reported $9 million. Now, she’s developing a spin­off about Wonder Woman’s fellow Amazons that she will produce but not necessarily direct. Jenkins also inked a three-year overall TV deal with Netflix reportedly worth $10 million, and on top of that, she is set to direct “Rogue Squadron,” a new “Star Wars” film set for 2023, making her the first woman to direct a film in the franchise. It’s all an interesting career plot twist for someone who put herself on the map with “Monster” (2003), which earned Charlize Theron an Oscar for playing serial killer Aileen Wuornos, then spent a decade-plus helming small-screen projects, including the pilot for AMC’s “The Killing.”

At first glance, “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and “Wonder Woman 1984” could scarcely be more different. The former is a sobering ensemble drama based on the real-life trial of the left-wing activists — including Abbie Hoffman (Sacha Baron Cohen) and Tom Hayden (Eddie Redmayne) — who organized protests during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, which became a series of riots. The latter is the fantastical action-adventure sequel to the 2017 phenomenon “Wonder Woman,” in which Gal...
