"Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior," reads the message that accompanied the 2 1/2-minute clip when it was posted on YouTube after its awards-show premiere. "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."

Viewers of the prize presentation were also treated to a 90-second sneak peek at the studio's upcoming, big-screen adaptation of Stephen King's It. Set for release on Sept. 8 and directed by Andres Muschietti, it stars Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer and Nicholas Hamilton.
