What's The Song In The Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer?

Wonder Woman 1984 is set to hit cinemas in June 2020, and with excitement reaching a fever pitch, Warner Bros. finally released the first full trailer for the film. The footage provides plenty of little teasers for fans – including the return of Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), whom everyone thought had died at the end of 2017's Wonder Woman. Of course, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) also gets a number of action shots in the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, which offers just a taste of the badass scenes fans can expect to see on the big screen next summer.

Sticking with the '80s time setting and amped-up tone of the movie, the trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 is set to a unique tune that likely got stuck in many fans' brains after seeing the footage. So, what's the song in the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer? We've got the answer.

It's remix of "Blue Monday" by New Order. The original song, released in 1983, is the perfect fit for the latest DC Extended Universe film. The remix certainly sets the right tone for the latest comic book movie as well: it's edgy with a slight disco take to it to accompany the very retro vibe of Wonder Woman 1984. 

In this particular remix, the parts of "Blue Monday" used for the trailer are instrumental, allowing viewers to focus on the action taking place (with an epic beat to back it up, of course). The Wonder Woman 1984 "Blue Monday" remix is also far more dramatic than the original version of the song. Orchestral bits overlay the New Order track to revamp it, and some digital editing has been done to capture the tone of the '80s-set film. With this music being quite appropriate era-wise, hopefully the rest of the film will feature some '80s hits on its soundtrack.

1984 is a brand-new cinematic time setting for Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman 1984 sees a major time jump from the first Wonder Woman film. The original was set during World War I, 70 years prior to the events of Wonder Woman's standalone sequel. This makes the return of Steve Trevor, the pilot with whom Diana fell in love in Wonder Woman, all the more surprising given that even if he had survived in the first film, he'd be very old in the 1980s. Clearly, there's some kind of magic or time travel going on here that will need to be further explored. But with his return, the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer shows the tables turned on Steve, who in the first film had to explain the ways of the human world to Diana. This time around, she's having to explain the '80s to Steve, bringing him up to speed on modern art and trash cans that are sometimes just trash cans.

With the time jump, Diana will be facing new villains as well (unless, of course, everyone from the original Wonder Woman has somehow mysteriously returned from the dead alongside Steve). So far, we know Kristen Wiig is taking on the role of Barbara Ann Minerva, an archaeologist and apparent friend of Diana's who later transforms into the villainous Cheetah, a longstanding foe to Wonder Woman in the DC comics. Pedro Pascal plays the smarmy businessman Maxwell Lord, who's believed to somehow be involved with the sudden reappearance of Steve, according to Vox.

Another return is made by director Patty Jenkins, who helmed the first flick. With all the sneak peaks in the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, Jenkins has given audiences plenty of questions she will need to answer come June 5, 2020.
