Lebanon Bans ‘Wonder Woman’ Screenings Because Of Israeli Star Gal Gadot

Despite its positive early reviews, and high rating on Rotten Tomatoes, people living in Lebanon won?t be able to see ?Wonder Woman? in their theaters anytime soon. 

The film, starring Israel-born actress Gal Gadot, has officially been banned from screenings in the country, which is in a conflict with Israel, The Guardian reports. Gadot served in the Israeli Defense Force for two years and has publicly expressed support for the IDF.

Just hours before the ban went into effect, ?Wonder Woman? was scheduled to premiere in Lebanon. Grand Cinemas, a Lebanese theater chain, announced the ban with a post on Twitter. 

?Wonder Woman? passed Lebanon?s screening procedures, The Guardian notes, but the government reportedly responded to pressure from the Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon to ban what they called ?the Israeli Soldier film.? 

Interestingly, Gadot?s ?Fast and Furious? films, as well as ?Batman v Superman,? have screened in Lebanon, though The Campaign tried to have the latter banned. Films starring fellow Israel-born star Natalie Portman have also screened in Lebanon. 

?Wonder Woman? found itself in the middle of another controversy earlier this week when the Austin branch of the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater chain announced a women-only screening. Naturally, men responded with outrage. 

Despite the ban and controversy over the woman-only screening, Warner Bros. is expecting ?Wonder Woman? to make a whopping $175 million debut at the box office. As of right now, the film also has a 95 percent rating (down from 96) on Rotten Tomatoes, putting it ahead of Marvel films like ?Iron Man,? ?The Avengers? and ?Guardians of the Galaxy.?

Guardian’s Ben Jacobs Will Donate His Broken Glasses To Newseum

The Guardian?s Ben Jacobs, whose glasses were broken when Montana Republican Greg Gianforte attacked him, will donate the mangled spectacles to the Newseum in Washington, D.C.

Last Wednesday, Jacobs was covering Montana?s special election for a U.S. House seat when he asked Gianforte a question about health care. Jacobs said the candidate, who went on to win the election the following day, body-slammed him and broke his glasses. A Fox News team that witnessed the attack said Gianforte grabbed the reporter by the neck with both hands and slammed him down on the ground. The candidate then began punching the reporter, the Fox News team said.

In an article posted to The Guardian on Tuesday, the newspaper?s staff wrote that Jacobs agreed to donate his glasses after the journalism museum requested to display them in its collection. 

The reporter has new glasses. Gianforte was charged with misdemeanor assault and will face a maximum punishment of six months in jail and a $500 fine.
