Some new pics from the set of Wonder Woman have emerged, giving us a closer look at actress Connie Nielsen as Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta.

As you can see, filming is still going strong in Matera, Italy, with the location standing in for the Island of Themyscira, the idyllic home of the mighty Amazons and one Princess Diana (Gal Gadot). Director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman movie has also been using exotic islands off the coasts of Italy as well as southern China to re-create the "otherworldliness" of Paradise Island.

The cool new behind-the-scenes snaps have popped up on the Facebook page of Italian tour company Informazioni Turistiche, offering us a very nifty look at the Gladiator actress garbed in her full Amazonian costume. You can see her surrounded by her guard, having a look around Paradise Island. Check it out:


Now, excuse me while I book myself a trip to Italy. A girl can dream.

Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis and Lisa Loven Kongsli and will open in theaters on June 2, 2017.
