To really appeal to viewers unfamiliar with the deep canon of The Dark Crystal, as well as die-hard fans, the creators went out of their way to pay intricate attention to the design of each character and every piece of scenery. That means employing hundreds, or even thousands of workers, Leterrier explained, to make wigs, to punch holes for hair into the creatures, and more. It s an important part of the process that Netflix will celebrate, releasing a documentary going behind-the-scenes of Age of Resistance, that’ll appear as the season’s 11th episode. For a show that Henson describes as “a maker spectacular,” this announcement is a no-brainer. The amount of craft that goes into the making of the puppets, and the guys who operate them, we just arrive [on set] and it s sort of there, Egerton said of his responsibility as an actor on the series. The work that everyone else has done kind of feeds your performance, really. We really are just the top layer of a very tall cake. (Photo by Netflix)Hamill, who voices the iconic Skeksis known as the Scientist, couldn t stop raving about being a part of the series. What I loved was how daring and dark it was as opposed to the other projects associated with the Muppets. It s really come into its own. The script for Age of Resistance is very, very good. I don t care about the trappings of the salary or whatever, but you look for projects that are a challenge and stuff you d like to see, and it definitely falls into that category. Hamill will surely be a big draw for the show — his enthusiasm for the show is really quite contagious. But as gross and visceral as the Skeksis can get, Age of亚博苹果APP下载看到这里想必有玩家想知道，究竟哪三款游戏用来做对比，分别是LOL端游，LOL手游，王者荣耀，当玩家看到这个表格之后，都出现一个念头，这数据是真的吗？

The show earned particularly strong critical praise for star Zendaya, and was renewed for a second season … The fallout from Game of Thrones’ final season continued with actress Lena Headey, who played Cersei in the series, speaking out about her character s fate: “Obviously you dream of your death,” she told The Guardian. “You could go in any way on that show.

Game of Thrones wins the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy, while Fleabag is named Outstanding Comedy Series, and Tony winner Billy Porter of Pose becomes the first openly gay performer to win the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series Emmy … Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins signs an eight-figure, three-year deal to create new TV series exclusively for Netflix … J.J. Abrams signed a development deal with WarnerMedia, earning between 0-500 million for his Bad Robot company to produce TV shows, movies, video games and digital content … New Saturday Night Live cast member Shane Gillis was fired before the season began when offensive comments he made about women, Muslims, Chinese Americans, and the LGBTQ community in a comedy podcast came to light … Emmy, Golden Globe, and Peabody Award-winning Amazon Video series Transparent ends its five-season run with a musical episode … The Brady Bunch turned 50.

Word leaks that Marvel TV Executive Vice President Jeph Loeb will announce his departure soon, a move that reportedly was in the works prior to Feige’s promotion. The news follows a general trend established when Marvel Studios, not Marvel Television, announced it would make limited run series with its MCU Avengers for the Disney+ service. Loeb was responsible for the company s Netflix series (Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, etc.), ABC s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., FX s Legion, Runaways on Hulu, and more Netflix debuted El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, the much-anticipated Breaking Bad follow-up that told the story of what happened to Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after the events of the BB series finale … The streaming war heats up, as Disney+ tweets out 500-plus images for titles that will be included in the service’s November 12 launch.

The Child won fans over with his soup-sipping, frog-guzzling, fuzzy green cuteness, only for those viewers to be very disappointed (and start a bootleg merch industry on Etsy) when they learned Disney had purposefully not planned Baby Yoda plush toys and other official swag to be available for the holidays. Shop Disney eventually came through with T-shirts, mugs, and other items that could be delivered in time for Christmas giving … Love for Baby Yoda helped drive more good news for Disney+; the streaming service signed up more than 10 million subscribers in one day … Apple TV+ launches with, among other series, The Morning Show, a morning TV–based #MeToo-themed drama from showrunner Kerry Ehrin, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell … After its initial batch of series launched the service, Apple TV+ also releases Servant, a psychological thriller from executive producer M.

Adjusted Score: -1% Critics Consensus: A stellar series perfect for anyone looking for a little hope, Stargirl is delightful fun the whole family can enjoy.
own good.Adapting Source Material For Film And TV (Room 6A, 4:15 p.m.)But if you want to learn more about how TV producers adapt comics into television shows, The Walking Dead executive producer David Alpert, Deadly Class co-executive producer Maggie Bandur, former Iron Fist showrunner M. Raven Metzner, and former Luke Cage producer Akela Cooper will chat about how they walk fan-favorite comic books through the development process and on to cable channels or streaming services. It may explain why superhero costumes often disappear and why some shows look nothing like their four-color counterparts.FridayDuckTales (Room 6A, 11:45 a.m.)Start your Friday at Comic-Con with DuckTales executive producer Matt Youngberg, co-EP Francisco Angones, and stars Ben Schwartz, Bobby Moynihan, Kate Micucci, and Paget Brewster as they discuss the upcoming third season and show footage from a never-before-seen episode. Will it be a whole episode? You never know with the series inspired by the Donald Duck comics of Carl Barks.Fear The Walking Dead (Hall H, 12 p.m.)Now a traditional Hall H staple, the cast and crew of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead will grace the stage to dodge questions about upcoming episodes. Panelists include cast members Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Maggie Grace, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Austin Amelio, Alexa Nisenson, Karen David, Jenna Elfman, and Rubén Blades. Walking Dead boss Scott M. Gimple, showrunners and executive producers Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, executive producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, and Greg Nicotero will also be on hand to help the cast avoid spoilers.DC Super Hero Girls New Episode Premiere And Q A (Room 6DE, 12:30 p.m.)Last year, the DC Super Hero Girls team debuted the first of a planned series of shorts. Now, with the full series off the ground and airing on Cartoon Network, the cast and crew return triumphant with a new episode to show an appreciative crowd of fans. Last year’s panel was also a lot of fun, so we expect this to be no different.The Walking Dead (Hall H, 1 p.m.)Gimple, Hurd, Alpert, Nicotero, and Kirkman remain on the Hall H stage for the second hour of Walking Dead content. They are joined by Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang and cast members Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Avi Nash, Cooper Andrews, Ryan Hurst, Nadia Hilker, Eleanor Matsuura, and Cailey Fleming. Expect more spoiler-evasion, but a pretty entertaining sort as this cast knows how to talk about their characters without giving anything away. McBride, in particular, is a master at this. The hour will also offer a first look at the Season 10 trailer.The Boys (Ballroom 20, 3:30 p.m.)Stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Jessie T. Usher, Elisabeth Shue, and executive producers Eric Kripke and Seth Rogen come together to discuss the upcoming Amazon Prime series based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It takes place in a world where superheroes are as fallible as any pro athlete, movie star, or influencer. But when they get out of line, The Boys appear to teach them the folly of their ways.Pennyworth Special Video Presentation and Q A (Room 6BCF, 4:30 p.m.)A series based around Batman’s butler may seem superfluous, but we think those going to this panel will be pleasantly surprised by this new take on Alfred Pennyworth. Stars Jack Bannon, Ben Aldridge, Paloma Faith, and executive producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon will be on hand to present footage from the series and answers questions about the craziest Batman prequel yet.Announcing The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers Animated Series (Room 6BCF, 7 p.m.)The underground comix classic is finally coming to TV! Showrunners Alan Freedland and Alan Cohen, producers Blake Anderson and Adam Devine, and writers Jeremy Lehrer and Daniel Lehrer will discuss their approach to Gilbert Shelton’s trio of counterculture stoners.Preacher (Hall H, 7 p.m.)Preacher is reaching its endgame. Executive producer Seth Rogen and members of the cast will take to the Hall H stage to celebrate the program’s fourth and final season. We expect they will also have some footage from the Season 4 premiere if not the entire episode itself. They will also reminisce about the high-jinks that Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga), and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) got up to while searching for the Almighty.SaturdayBatwoman Pilot Screening And Q A (Ballroom 20, 10:30 a.m.)If you missed the preview night premiere of Batwoman, you will have a second chance to catch the first episode during the first Ballroom 20 presentation on Friday, July 20th. Ruby Rose stars as the out and proud Kate Kane, cousin of a long-absent Bruce Wayne who learns the truth about his nighttime activities and takes the mantle of the Bat for herself. The cast and producers will also be on stage answering questions from soon-to-be fans of the show.Snowpiercer On TBS: Panel and Exclusive First Look (Indigo Ballroom, 3 p.m.)Based on the French comic by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette, Snowpiercer takes viewers to a world where the remnants of humanity board a perpetually moving train. But all of the species’ emotional baggage is along for the ride. Stars Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Lena Hall, Steven Ogg, and executive producer/showrunner Graeme Manson will offer an exclusive peek at the show and answer questions about its long route to the screen.Arrow Special Video Presentation And Q A (3:30 p.m.)It is hard to believe that this will be the final Arrow panel at Comic-Con. And yet, eight years, two attempts at Olicity, and one Ricardo Diaz later, this is the end. Join the cast and crew as they recall fond times and tease what lies ahead for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) as the 10-episode final season brings him inexorably to his final fate. We expect this to be the key panel during The CW’s takeover of Ballroom 20. We even think a trailer for the upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover will debut toward the end of it.Supergirl, Black Lightning, and The Flash Special Video Presentations and Q A (Ballroom 20, 4:15-6:30 p.m.)While we singled out Arrow because it is their final Comic-Con appearance, Supergirl, Black Lightning, and The Flash will all make their usual Saturday appearances, bringing the customary teases of their new seasons and answer fan questions about the oddest parts of the previous year. Some of those questions will no doubt concern “Crisis,” but we expect each group will have something to share bout the crossover even the Black Lighting team, who stay out of the crossovers. As always, a large number of each cast will be in attendance. If you love these shows and want to see the Marvel Studios presentation, make your choice early and camp out in the appropriate hall.Syfy and IDW Entertainment: Wynonna Earp (Indigo Ballroom, 5 p.m.)It’s been a crazy year for Earpers. At Comic-Con 2018, the cast and crew announced they would be back for a fourth season. But just as production was supposed to start, it smacked up against a long delay and obscure studio politics. But the show is coming back, and stars Melanie Scrofano, Katherine Barrell, Chantel Riley, Greg Lawson, and Michael Eklund – along with executive producer Emily Andras and Wynonna creator Beau Smith – return to Comic-Con once more to tease the definitely soon-to-be-in-production fourth season. Of course, if you’ve ever been to a Wynonna Earp panel, you know they tend feature a lot of fans expressing their love for the show. It will get loud.DC Universe Series Sneak Previews And Q A (Indigo Ballroom, 7 p.m.)DC Universe is gearing up for its second year and it s bringing previews of the upcoming Harley Quinn animated series, the second season of Titans, and more to its two-hour Comic-Con presentation. Talent and producers of the various series will appear and there will probably be a few surprises. We’re hoping we’ll get confirmation about Doom Patrol’s second season and even a last-second reprieve for Swamp Thing, which was cancelled before its second episode debuted, but continued to air the entirety of the first season and turned out to be our favorite comic book show of the early summer.Sunday(Photo by Marc Hom/The CW)Riverdale Special Video Presentation and Q AThe cast and crew of Riverdale close out Comic-Con’s Comics on TV presence with their yearly Hall H appearance. Expect fans to swoon over stars KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse. Also expect executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to offer a bit of info which seems important, but ends up quite tangential to the Season 4 mystery. Will Jughead (Sprouse) be dead by spring break? Will Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) exact his revenge on Veronica (Camilla Mendes)? The questions and more will be discussed even if they are not answered.Like this? Subscribe to our newsletter and get more features, news, and guides in your inbox every week.
Rotten Tomatoes recently held its first Rotten Tomatoes Critics Workshop, designed to help freelance critics and journalists navigate festivals, develop industry contacts, and get their stories placed. We asked the industry professionals who spoke at our workshops to provide their top tips for freelancers; the below come from former lead critic for the L.A. Weekly, freelance writer, and host of the Switchblade Sisters podcast, April Wolfe.1. Do the ResearchThe most arduous task of attending a film festival is putting in the research on films. Likely, you’re bombarded with press releases. Ignore most of those while you study the festival’s program. Otherwise, you’re going to overwhelm yourself. Be strategic with the movies you choose to see, especially with a festival like Sundance, where there are fewer screenings and long lines with priority pass holders. Ask yourself: Can I place a review for this big buzzy film, or would it be easier to place a review of a more niche film? The answer won’t always be the same. But know that you may stand in line only to be turned away and without an option for that time slot.2. Pitch What You Love and Do It FastWhat are you most passionate about seeing? That’s what you should pitch. If you can convey that excitement, it’s a lot easier to get a bite. Once you know what you’re into, PITCH IT NOW. In terms of outlets, know that even though some outlets already have staff people covering the fest that there are usually still some holes in coverage. For instance, I covered Sundance for both Film Comment and Washington Post once, and while both outlets were already sending critics, I was able to become an accessory and fill in the blanks for them.3. Don’t Be Afraid to Pitch FeaturesAt a festival, interviews and profiles are an easy way to break in with an outlet that may have all the critics they currently need. Spend as much time perfecting your interview skills as your critic skills, and you’ll be in demand. Once you know who you want to interview, send the press rep your request ASAP so you can schedule to see the film. The best part is that you’ve already seen the movie for the interview you’re writing, so that means you’re free to pitch another outlet for the review. Don’t forget that there’s programming outside of film that needs coverage, like the VR gallery and the live performances. People always forget about those, so it’s easier to get interviews.4. Learn to Navigate the FestivalsEvery fest has its own rules and tips. For Sundance, one is getting that RSVP to the CNN Films Lounge and the Kickstarter house. I don’t mean this to sound frivolous, but do pay attention to where the lounges and parties are, because some will give you a chance to sit down and bang out that review (always hit a deadline!), and others will give you a minute to mingle with critics and publicists – do not underestimate how delightful it is to have a drink with a press contact and how that relationship might help you both. Mostly, though, you need to eat, and these places have free food that’ll sustain you through the gauntlet, and that’s more important than it seems. No matter what, do not be afraid to pose questions about festivals on Twitter. You’ll be surprised at how many prompt and thorough responses you’ll get.5. File On TimeHit every deadline. Learn to write fast. I bring my laptop in a tiny, waterproof case with me everywhere I go. Become immune to other people’s noise and just vomit your thoughts on the page to get started. If you’re in the theater with 10 minutes before your screening starts, that’s 10 minutes to write. You only need an internet connection when you’re sending your review or fact-checking, and that’s when you tether your computer wifi to your phone Wi-Fi. (Note: Bring a fully charged travel battery for your phone.) The faster you file, the more integral you are to the discussion of the film when reviews hit social media.6. Find Your PeopleIt’s still possible to carve out a joyful little corner of people you enjoy on Film Twitter. Depending on the fest you’re heading to, there’s likely going to be at least one veteran adding you to a Twitter list of attendees, which can be extremely helpful, say, if you’d like to make it a point to meet up with someone at the festival. Of course, it’s extremely difficult to make solid plans; your main priority should be seeing movies. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make a point to hit certain meet-ups – keep an eye out on Twitter for when editors are announcing these informal get-togethers!

You re probably thinking to yourself, Isn t this the third animated family movie about not-so-abominable snowpersons that s been foisted upon me, the unsuspecting average moviegoer, in the last year alone? And you would be correct, dear unsuspecting average moviegoer: Smallfoot hit theaters almost exactly a year ago, we got Missing Link back in mid-April, and this week sees the release of Abominable, from the same studio (as the poster proudly declares) that gave us How to Train Your Dragon. The previous two films were both Certified Fresh, and so far, it looks like Abominable is enjoying a similarly positive reception. Chloe Bennett (Marvel s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) voices a young woman in Shanghai named Yi, who s never fully recovered from losing her father. When she encounters an escaped Yeti hiding out on her rooftop, she and her friends set out on the journey of a lifetime to escort their new friend back to its home on Mt. Everest. In other words, this isn t exactly groundbreaking stuff, as far as storytelling goes, but it hits all of the requisite beats so charmingly that critics find it difficult to resist. Toss in a supporting cast that includes Eddie Izzard and Sarah Paulson, as well as some striking visuals of China s vast and varied landscape, rendered in gorgeously framed cinematography, and Abominable is shaping up to be a pretty solid piece of family entertainment.
亚博苹果APP下载 (Photo by ©AV Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection)The Best Australian Horror MoviesYou might expect a list of Australian horror films to be teeming with the beasties people associate with the continent: poisonous snakes, deadly spiders, mammoth crocs. Yet while this collection of essential Aussie horror flicks does contain several of those Down Under biters – two crocodile movies, one shark movie, and one about a giant wild boar (didn t see that coming, did ya?!) – it also features works that tap into something just as threatening: the vast land itself, from the mystery of its desert center to the dark possibilities of its cities sprawling suburbs. Movies like Wolf Creek and Road Games play with our anxiety about who, and what, we might encounter dare we venture into the endless Outback, while Hounds of Love and The Babadook explore what might lie behind your neighbor s door.Recent international breakouts like Jennifer Kent s Babadook and Natalie Erika James atmospheric haunted house chiller Relic traffic in the slow-building dread of today s elevated horror, but Australian genre films have been largely marked by a certain hard brutality over the years. Consider Wolf Creek and its sequel, or the more recent Killing Ground, which tell ripped-from-the-headlines slasher tales of terrorized backpackers and campers, but do so with an almost merciless insistence on graphic, real-feeling violence. And while we re talking brutal, check out The Loved Ones, a darkly comic tale of obsession that found new ways to drill into the torture porn trend of the 2000s.To be included in the list, movies had to be made and set in Australia, by a predominantly Australian crew. They also had to have more than 10 reviews – which is why the great maybe-horror Bad Boy Bubby, with only nine Tomatometer-approved reviews, didn t make the cut; ditto the excellent anthology Dark Place. We then culled the selection down to the 20 highest-rated movies, which included a couple of Rotten-but-fun (Bait) or seminal flicks (Patrick), and even a Jamie Lee Curtis sort-of-slasher. (Yes, Curtis s Final Girl phase even took her to entirely different hemispheres.) Purists may quibble with the choice to include Phillip Noyce s Dead Calm, a twisty and taut three-hander with Sam Neill, Nicole Kidman, and Billy Zane – it s not horror in the traditional sense, perhaps, but it will have you squirming. As will Justin Kurzel s The Snowtown Murders (released as just Snowtown in Australia), a crime drama with grisly horror elements you won t soon forget. Take shots at us in the comments if you must, but won t regret watching them.With all that said, here are the 20 highest-rated Australian horror films, according to the Tomatometer.Best Spanish-Language Horror Movies | Best Korean Horror Movies | Best Italian Horror Movies | Best French Horror Movies | Best Japanese Horror Movies2020’s Best Horror Movies | 200 Best Horror Movies Ever
