我叫mt 大大姐采用百度引擎7（Baidu 6）This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering titles like Buck Rogers, Cleopatra, Furiosa, The Others, and Tut.This WEEK S TOP STORYMAD MAX: FURY ROAD PREQUEL LANDS THREE SUPERHERO STARS(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough, Kristin Callahan, Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Director George Miller is getting closer to a filming start date for Furiosa, his prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road (Certified Fresh at 97%), about the life of Charlize Theron s character before she became well, the person she was in Mad Max: Fury Road. Back in March, we first heard that Miller was considering casting Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Emma.) as the younger Furiosa, and this week, that casting was confirmed. In addition to Taylor-Joy (who played Magik in The New Mutants), however, Miller has also cast Australian star Chris Hemsworth (Marvel s Thor, obviously) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who played both Black Manta in Aquaman and Doctor Manhattan in HBO s Watchmen (our apologies if that s a spoiler for a show that aired a year ago). Hemsworth will reportedly play a character called Dementus who has a huge silver scar on his face, and Abdul-Mateen will play a character called Pretorian. Those names seem to confirm that the film will indeed be set in post-apocalyptic times, and not, as some might have guessed, before the end of the world. Tom Hardy is not expected to reprise his role as Mad Max, as his character would be much younger, and also because Max and Furiosa did not seem to know each other before they met in Fury Road. There is no release date yet for Furiosa, but George Miller plans to start filming in 2021, which suggests a date in 2022 or 2023. You can read here what Anya Taylor-Joy is already saying about being cast as Furiosa, and read here to find out what Miller might have planned for the prequel.Other Top Headlines1. GAL GADOT TO REUNITE WITH PATTY JENKINS FOR CLEOPATRA (Photo by Derek Storm/Everett Collection)Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world still hasn t seen Wonder Woman 1984, the second collaboration between star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins following their work together on the first Wonder Woman (Certified Fresh at 93%). We ve known for a while that Gadot and Jenkins have plans to eventually make a third Wonder Woman movie together, but what we didn t know until this week is that, in the meantime, they will be reuniting for another movie about a heroine with ancient mythologial roots. Gadot is now attached to star in and Patty Jenkins will direct Paramount Pictures Cleopatra biopic, based on the life of Cleopatra VII, the last active ruler of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. Cleopatra has been a favorite epic subject for Hollywood since its earliest days, including Cecil B. DeMille s 1934 film starring Claudette Colbert and the 1963 film starring Elizabeth Taylor. There have been many attempts at Cleopatra biopics over the last several years, including one at Sony Pictures that in the past had both Angelina Jolie and Lady Gaga possibly in talks to star. That Sony project has been in development for over 10 years, and it s not known at this point whether Sony will push forward to compete with the Gal Gadot version, or whether Sony has given up on Cleopatra completely.2. OSCAR-WINNING DIRECTOR OF HAIR LOVE TO ANIMATE LIFE OF KING TUT(Photo by Leon Bennett/Getty Images)Marvel Studios Black Panther was an milestone for many reasons, but one of them was that it achieved a level of live-action production design and world building that one more usually associates with animation. That style is called afrofuturism, and we re soon going to get a Sony Pictures Animation feature film called Tut, which will interpret the life of young Egyptian pharaoh King Tutankamun through an afrofutristic vision. Tut will be the animated feature film debut of director Matthew A. Cherry, who won the Academy Award this year for Best Animated Short for Hair Love (which you can watch on Facebook right here). Cherry s vision for Tut will take audiences on a journey through ancient Egypt and celebrate a culture that introduced the world to countless modern conventions and technologies. There is no voice casting news for Tut yet, and given the production time for major animated films, we probably can t expect to see it released until 2023 or later. Matthew A. Cherry will also be producing a 12 episode Hair Love spin-off series for HBO Max called Young Love.3. JOAQUIN PHOENIX GETS GOOD PART AS BONAPARTE IN KITBAG (Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Just last week, we learned that 90 year old Clint Eastwood is preparing to direct and star in his next movie Cry Macho, and this week, another director who s nearly as old also announced a major new project. 82-year-old Ridley Scott wrapped filming this week on The Last Duel, starring Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Adam Driver, and then in March, he will start filming Gucci, starring Lady Gaga. And then, after that (at which point he will be 83), Scott will direct Joaquin Phoenix in the epic Napoleon Bonaparte biopic Kitbag. The title reportedly refers to the kitbags carried by soldiers during war, and the expression that there is a general s staff hidden in every soldier s kitbag. The ambitious biopic will reportedly cover Napoleon s, swift, ruthless climb to emperor, viewed through the prism of his addictive and often volatile relationship with his wife and one true love, Josephine. Although Napoleon was a popular subject in Hollywood s earliest years, there hasn t been a major such movie since 1970 s Waterloo (Rotten at 27%), the box office failure of which is often cited as the reason why Stanley Kubrick gave up on his own Napoleon biopic in which Jack Nicholson would have starred.4. SELENA GOMEZ TO STAR IN BLACK SWAN-STYLE THRILLER SET IN FASHION WORLD(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Although Selena Gomez has stayed busy with her music (and the videos that go with it), supporting roles in movies like The Dead Don t Die (Rotten at 54%), and a Woody Allen movie few people have seen, you actually have to go back four years to 2016 and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (Fresh at 64%) to find a movie in which Gomez had a prominent role (and even that was as part of an ensemble). Gomez appears intent on fixing that soon, with this week s new project, and also the recent news that Gomez s voice role in Hotel Transylvania 4 may be larger than we originally thought. Gomez will produce ( and will likely also star) in a psychological horror film for STXfilms called Dollhouse, which is being compared to Black Swan, but set in the fashion world of New York City. Gomez s producing partners on Dollhouse will include Shaun Levy s 21 Laps Entertainment, whose filmography includes Arrival, Fist Fight, Kin, and Ryan Reynolds upcoming action movie Free Guy. (This probably goes without saying, but just to be clear, Selena Gomez s Dollhouse also has nothing to do with the FOX TV series starring Eliza Dushku.)5. SAMMY DAVIS JR. MAY BE FIRST RAT PACK MEMBER TO GET HIS OWN BIOPIC (Photo by Everett Collection)Over the last 20 years or so, there have been a few different attempts to adapt the lives of famous 1950s/1960s Rat Pack members like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin as biopics, but neither ever came to be (though HBO did portray them collectively in 1998 s The Rat Pack, Rotten at 57%). With no active development for biopics about either of those crooners, it s now looking more likely that the first major feature film about the life of a Rat Pack member will instead be about the life of Sammy Davis, Jr. Lena Waithe (Master of None, Ready Player One) is producing the Sammy Davis, Jr. biopic with MGM, and the screenplay will be adapted from the memoir Sammy Davis Jr: My Father by his daughter Tracey Davis. Sammy Davis Jr. had many personal distinctions, including both African American and Jewish heritage, multiple starring film roles, and several songs that made it to the Top 20 pop charts, including Something s Gotta Give, Love Me or Leave Me, and I ve Got to Be Me (possibly a great title for his biopic?).6. GODZILLA PRODUCERS REBOOTING CLASSIC SCI-FI HERO BUCK ROGERS (Photo by ©NBC courtesy Everett Collection)We re all so used to science fiction and superheroes that we can easily take it for granted that they ve always been around, but the origins for many genre concepts are relatively new. For example, it was only 92 years ago in 1928 that the sci-fi adventurer Buck Rogers was first introduced (predating Flash Gordon, John Carter of Mars, and thousands of superheroes, including Superman). Although Buck Rogers went on to become a popular 1930s and 1940s comic strip and serial star, the character has been relatively underused ever since, except for the 1979-1981 TV series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (starring Gil Gerard and Erin Gray), which may be well-remembered by Generation X, but probably not by many under 40. After several months of negotiations, Legendary Entertainment, the production company behind recent reboots like Godzilla and Dune, is now in development on a new feature film that would reboot Buck Rogers, focusing on a man who wakes up from centuries of suspended animation 500 years in the future. It s not yet known which version of Buck Rogers will be adapted, including for example, whether the reboot might include characters from the TV show like Twiki the robot and Erin Gray s Wilma Deering. In tangentially related news, Walt Disney Pictures is also now developing a feature film based on the popular theme park attraction Space Mountain.7. SANDRA BULLOCK S ADVENTURE TO THE LOST CITY OF D (Photo by ©Warner Bros.)It might feel a lot longer ago than 2009, but that was indeed the year that the romantic comedy The Proposal (Rotten at 45%), which as it turned out, was sort of one of the last hurrahs for the romantic comedy genre as a major Hollywood release (they re more common these days on streamers than in major theatrical releases). But when people do eventually go back to movie theaters post-COVID-19, they are still going to want date movies, so it s not at all surprising that some rom-coms are still in development, especially when they re hybrids with other genres. Sandra Bullock will produce and is attached to star in a Paramount Pictures romantic adventure called The Lost City of D, which is being compared to the 1984 classic Romancing the Stone. Although he s not signed, the producers reportedly also hope to recruit Bullock s Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds to join her in their first movie together since. Sandra Bullock will star as an author who discovers that the fictional city she s written about is actually real, leading her to try to discover its location. The most recent screenplay draft was written by Dana Fox (Isn t It Romantic, Couples Retreat).8. ANIMATED WIZARD OF OZ SPINOFF MOVIE IN THE WORKS FOR DOROTHY S LITTLE DOG TOTO TOO (Photo by Everett Collection)Children s author L. Frank Baum wrote 14 Oz books, but the argument could be made that the amazing success of The Wizard of Oz has left such an overwhelming legacy that the other books were not adapted as frequently (or at all) as they would have been if the 1939 The Wizard of Oz had never existed. (Of course, the Oz would has indeed been revisited, usually as reimaginings like the Broadway musical Wicked, or the R B musical The Wiz.) Warner Animation Group is now developing another film in that vein, as the studio has made a deal with two-time Tony-nominated director Alex Timbers (Moulin Rouge!) to direct their musical adaptation of the book Toto: The Dog-Gone Amazing Story of The Wizard of Oz, which, as the title suggests, is basically the same story but from the perspective of Dorothy s dog. The most recent movie from Warner Animation Group was the prequel Scoob!, which ended up going to VOD because of the pandemic, but the Toto movie is reportedly still fully intended for a theatrical release (given how long animation takes, Toto is still a few years away anyway).9. THE OTHERS IS GETTING A REMAKE(Photo by (c)Dimension Films courtesy Everett Collection)It seems like most movie remakes come from about 20-30 years earlier for example, the 1980s had lots of 1950s remakes, and the 2000s and 2010s had a lot of remakes from the 1980s. So, as we re now 20 years from the year 2000, we can expect to see remakes of movies from the aughts start to appear, and one such project made the news this week. Universal Pictures is partnering with Sentient Entertainment (TV s Feud: Bette and Joan) to develop a remake of the 2001 supernatural thriller The Others ( Certified Fresh at 83% ), starring Nicole Kidman as a mother struggling to protect her children from a supernatural menace in their home. The original movie was set in England in 1945, but it s possible the remake may have a different setting (possibly modern times, or any other decade). It s also not yet known who will be adapting the screenplay, or who will be directing the film.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.

We have arrived at a weekend nearly two years in the making two and a half years if we go back to the start of production on the 25th James Bond film. But after directorial changes and several delays caused by the pandemic, No Time To Die has finally hit theaters with a lot of expectations behind the final appearance of Daniel Craig as 007. Four out of five posted critics recommend the film, which stands at 84% on the Tomatometer, and it follows the biggest opening to date since 2019 from Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Thoughts that it could possibly hit 0 million this weekend were wildly uneducated guesstimates, but let’s look at how it settled into a box office that is starting to enjoy a resurgence, if not a full renaissance.King of the Crop: No Time to Die Tallies Solid Opening, Aims for 0 Million Worldwide(Photo by Nicola Dove/©MGM)No Time To Die did not break “records” as one local newscast stated after it grossed .3 million on Thursday night with previews. It broke “a” record (singular) when it bested the preview totals for SPECTRE (.25 million), Skyfall (.6 million) and Quantum of Solace (.5 million). That is where the record-breaking ends, but its overall gross this weekend is nothing to sneeze at either. A .4 million Friday and million weekend is the fifth best of the pandemic in both categories. That placement will probably hold until next month’s Eternals opens, unless Dune truly breaks free of its HBO MAX limitations.The disappointment that may be lingering around a million start is that it could not actually outgross SPECTRE’s opening weekend of .4 million. A million beginning was a hope many held, though in normal times a drop in attendance after a disappointing entry would not be a surprise. It is nearly universally agreed that SPECTRE is the weakest Craig entry – 63% on the Tomatometer compared to Quantum’s 65% – but these aren’t normal times, and while Venom: Let There Be Carnage may seem like an outlier at the moment (we’ll catch up on those numbers in a bit), even the sequels deemed pandemic successes are showing a drop in percentage from their previous outings.Taking out both films available as hybrid streamers and previous entries that grossed less than 0 million (direct ones, not reboots like Snake Eyes), that brings us back to A Quiet Place Part II and F9. Those films (currently the third- and fourth-highest grossing films of the period) are off 14.87% and 23.45%, respectfully. Though early, No Time To Die is on pace to finish somewhere between the 0 million and 3 million that those two films earned. Where will that put it in comparison to SPECTRE? Down between 14-20%, right in line with the drop of those other blockbuster sequels. Carve that up however you want between word of mouth, lack of repeat viewing, franchise fatigue, or a portion of the community still biding their time to wait for theatrical releases to be available at home due to the continuing pandemic. The good news for us is that the numbers on our national catastrophe are headed in the right direction; the good news for No Time To Die is that not only are its domestic totals looking to be remarkably consistent with the trends, but it will also become just the second film to reach a half-billion worldwide during this time. It is already over 3 million. So curb the disappointment.The Top 10 and Beyond: Venom: Let There Be Carnage Drops but Still on Track for 0 Million(Photo by ©Sony Pictures)Now let’s get back to those Venom: Let There Be Carnage numbers: million last weekend; top opener of the pandemic; million higher than the first film; 0 million guaranteed. Well, let’s gently tap the breaks on that last one. The number that Sony’s Marvel sequel wanted to hit this weekend was .1 million. 114 films have grossed at least that much in their second weekend, and all of them passed 0 million. The number Sony wanted to avoid? Anything under million. The number reached? million, closer to the latter after a 64% drop. Black Widow and F9 fell over 67% and opened to -20 million less. 189 films have grossed as much in weekend two; how many of them reached 0 million? 169. Let There Be Carnage still has an 89.4% chance to become just the second film of the pandemic to reach that goal based on that total, and in its favor is the half-empty side of the equation.The first film grossed million in its second weekend and had 2 million at this point; million this weekend still puts the sequel over 0 million. No film (out of 119) with that much in the tank after 10 days has failed to reach 0 million. That includes films that even grossed a bit less than Carnage, like Solo: A Star Wars Story (.3 million), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (.4 million), 2005’s War of the Worlds (.4 million), and 2014’s Godzilla (.9 million). Plus it should get a nice boost from the Monday holiday. But what about next weekend? What happens if it drops down to between -17 million? Only 14 of 32 films with a third weekend that low reached 0 million. That’s also the half-empty side, as it would still put Venom: Let There Be Carnage around 7 million, and no film with at least 5 million after 17 days missed the milestone. With a now hybrid streaming Halloween Kills opening next week, Venom still has a pretty comfy cushion even if it ends up closer to the original film’s gross between 0-210 million than what Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is going to achieve.(Photo by Jasin Boland/©Marvel Studios)Speaking of that film, its .2 million was the second-best sixth weekend of the era, behind Free Guy (.08 million) and just ahead of A Quiet Place Part II (.10 million). Its total of 2.5 million is just behind (in weekend and gross) where The Lost World: Jurassic Park was after 38 days, so its final tally in the vicinity of 5 million still holds, while it becomes just the third film of the pandemic to cross 0 million worldwide. The Addams Family 2 had an OK hold after an OK opening, down 43% to million. At million it is behind the pace of The Boss Baby: Family Business (.9 million), which was streaming for free on Peacock during release, while Addams is on VOD for .99. But its second weekend was about a million higher than Baby, putting a million gross in play if its dips do not get more erratic and it has one more weekend before Ron’s Gone Wrong attempts to wring some dough out of a depleted family market.Warner Bros. must really be sweating out the release of Dune, dreading what their HBO MAX decision may have cost them, but anticipating an opening gross of at least million. That is something that cannot be said for six of their releases this year, including Oscar-winner Judas and the Black Messiah, Those Who Wish Me Dead, Reminiscence, Malignant, Cry Macho and now The Many Saints of Newark which fell to .4 million this weekend for a total of .4 million. That’s four releases in a row. A24’s Lamb put up a respectable million in just 583 theaters, comparable to Focus’ release of Paul Schrader’s The Card Counter, which opened to .03 million in 580 theaters and has grossed over .6 million to date. Finally, Greenwich Entertainment’s release of The Rescue, the incredible true story of the Thai soccer team trapped in a cave for weeks, grossed ,000 in five theaters. It is just the ninth film of the pandemic to post a ,000+ per-theater-average, and its sixth-best ,200 PTA ranks below Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Black Widow, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the Vietnamese film Bo Gia, and F9.On the Vine: Halloween Kills Hopes to Make a Killing at the Box Office(Photo by ©Universal Pictures)The second chapter of David Gordon Green’s Michael Myers trilogy, Halloween Kills, opens in theaters next week while also streaming for free on Peacock. Word of mouth was not great on the 2018 first film after a very frontloaded opening; how much will streaming cut out of the already likely diminished returns on the sequel? Exclusively in theaters will also be Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel with Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer, and Ben Affleck. The historical drama will be another test to see if there is any progress on the adult demographic coming back to theaters. The first of Scott’s two films slated for release this fall (House of Gucci opens next month) is currently Fresh at 76% on the Tomatometer. 回答：英雄联盟手游中，是有段位保护机制的。只要玩家在日常Rank中积极游戏的话，是可以获得海克斯能量的。在掉段时，可以消耗海克斯能量抵消掉掉段惩罚。但是大家要注意，不要以为有了海克斯能量，就能在对局中为所欲为，这个只是一个保护机制，并不是万能的。而且每周里面，玩家可以获取的海克斯能量是有上限的。海克斯能量虽香，但不要沉迷。

3.59.2 8月喜迎hip.”“The relationship [between Ellie and Carl] was drawn largely from both Bob Peterson s relationship with his wife and my own relationship. There s high points and low points, difficulties and successes, and so we really wanted to portray the full wide breadth of that relationship. [There were] two relationships in particular that we focused on. Marc Davis was one of Disney s nine old men. He and Alice have a sort of fabled marriage and getting to know them was amazing. We got to visit their studio and talk about a little bit of their life together. And, actually, the two of them traveled to Papua, New Guinea. They went on these fantastic adventures as well as both being artists. So they were a great inspiration. [The other relationship was that of] Joe Grant, who was a guy that was head of story basically on Dumbo. He developed Fantasia, all these amazing films, was second in position down with Walt Disney in the 30s and 40s. And I got to know him late in his life as well and he had a wonderful relationship with his wife. So just looking around us at all these great role models and people, you realize, OK, nobody s perfect. Everybody has their bumps. I think that s what makes the sequence feel a little bit more real for people.”Pete Docter says he knew Carl had to have a reason to go on his adventure. (Photo by ©Walt Disney Co./courtesy Everett Collection)THE MOMENT: Carl and EllieOver the last three decades, the animator-tormenters at Pixar have been jerking the tears from our eyes with precision. Think of Jessie s When Somebody Loved Me sequence from Toy Story 2, or the moment Bing Bong fades away in Inside Out. Or the final moments of Toy Story 3. Or any of the other dozens of times the studio has turned on our waterworks. Chief among these moving moments is the opening sequence of Up, which sees Carl and Ellie meet cute as roughhousing kids, then court, marry, and persevere through some very dark times, ultimately living out a happy life until eventually Ellie dies, leaving Carl alone. It s beautiful and wrenching stuff, and goes to places few expect a family movie to go (at one point, we see the couple visit a doctor and learn that they cannot have children). Docter says the sequence underwent a number of changes before taking its final form. An original slapstick-style approach was ditched, as was most of the dialogue, and the filmmakers debated just how far they could push their audience when it came to the darker side of life.Ellie and Carl meet as kids at the beginning of the sequence. (Photo by ©Walt Disney Co./courtesy Everett Collection)“[Originally] Carl was, in the very first bit, trying to catch a bird and Ellie came to the bird s defense and punched him. Now Carl was out for revenge.”“The first draft of this was showing how their relationship [started]. So we introduced the characters to each other. We saw them as kids when they first saw each other. And it became kind of a battle. In fact, Carl was, in the very first bit, trying to catch a bird and Ellie came to the bird s defense and punched him. So now Carl was out for revenge. It became a back-and-forth of punching contests in the most unlikely places; in the middle of a Christmas pageant or taking the trash out. These very innocent scenes – the characters would surprise each other and punch each other. We thought it was hilarious, but [then] we showed it to the audience – we do a screening here at Pixar as we re making the films, we screen them about every three months – and it just kind of went over like a lead balloon. Nobody really laughed. So we thought, Well, this has to be shorter anyway because it s taking too long to get to the main action of our film. As it turned out that sequence really reduced down to about four-and-a-half minutes. It’s really not too long but it also becomes the emotional bedrock on which the rest of the film relies to move forward.”“Ronnie del Carmen, who was our head of story, came to me and said, ‘I think this would work better with no dialogue.’”“That sequence started fully scripted. We wrote multiple short little scenes where they were finishing each other s sentences and discussing stuff. Then as we started to storyboard it, Ronnie del Carmen, who was our head of story, came to me and said, ‘I think this would work better with no dialogue.’ And I said, ‘No, I think you re wrong. I think we should continue with the direction we set.’ But he eventually talked me into it and boy, the further we went We initially had sound effects and we took those out. We basically stripped it down just to music. My theory is, and it’s a somewhat crackpot theory probably, but I grew up watching Super 8 films that my parents had taken of all of us, and there s something about stripping away some element that makes it more emotional. Similarly, I have some audio cassettes that my parents recorded of us when we were kids and you can t see but you can hear. Something about having something lacking makes the audience have to fill in. They have to be an active participant and get involved in a way.”Ellie and Carl as their relationship progresses in the opening sequence. (Photo by ©Walt Disney Co./courtesy Everett Collection)“The pain and loss of that situation bonded those characters together and made you empathize more with them.”“There s one moment in that montage where Ellie has to go to the doctor and it s sort of implied that they can t have children for whatever reason. We didn t spell it out because we didn t feel like that was necessary. That raised some eyebrows even here at work as we were developing the film. Someone – it was an anonymous person – it must have hit too close to home and [they] got very upset. So, we did experiment with taking it out. And we thought, Well, maybe [the sequence] could still work [without it] because there s some really charming stuff. But the strange thing was, not only did we not feel the emotion as strongly in that one little sequence, but as we watched the rest of the film the whole film lost a little bit. I can t really fully explain that other than to say it was a real dark, low moment for them that I think made that relationship feel more real. The sort of pain and loss of that situation bonded those characters together and made you empathize more with them.”THE IMPACT: Life s Complexities, DistilledThe accolades came quickly for Up. The movie became at the time only the second animated movie ever to be nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards (it would take home Best Animated Feature, as well as Best Original Score for Michael Giacchino, whose composition, Married Life, is so key to the success of the opening sequence). Just as quickly, it entered the canon of Pixar greats, right alongside Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Wall-E, and the rest. But for Docter, the real lasting legacy of Up is felt in the form of letters and fan interactions, not shiny awards, when he sees first-hand how the moving moment that he helped create has affected and helped others.“She said it was very cathartic and that she felt as though she got to spend some time with her husband in a weird way.”“When we start out making these films, we re just trying to make something funny and entertaining and hopefully with a bit of heart and emotion to it. But they sometimes really tap into people s own lives in ways that are completely unexpected. There was a woman who wrote to me who said her husband had just died and so she went to the film just needing a break from life to get away from the sorrow. As I m reading the letter I m thinking, ‘Oh no’ – the wife dies and so it s mirroring her own life experience. But in the long run she said it was very cathartic and that she kind of felt as though she got to spend some time with her husband in a weird way. Even though this is a bunch of pixels on the screen and none of it actually exists. Part of what I really love [about] making animated films is that none of it exists. It s all a big trick. And yet when done well we can really make the audience care about these characters, believe in them as though they re real people.”Pete Docter at the Los Angeles premiere of Up in 2009. (Photo by Michael Germana/Everett Collection)“These films are dress rehearsals for life for a lot of people.”“These films in a way are dress rehearsals for life for a lot of people. I know when kids play house or cars or whatever, they re kind of acting out what they re looking [at] around them. They re kind of trying this suit on, and I think films are a little bit the same way. It s a way of understanding the world. We’ve had a lot of people respond, both on Up and especially on Inside Out, talking about how their autistic children really use these films in very significant ways to understand emotion, to understand interaction, relationships. I think because you can watch it over and over. This is something animation does; we try to distill down all the complexity and nuance and messiness into something clean and easy to see. It s like a caricature. In three lines, Al Hirschfeld would do these amazing caricatures of people that looked more like them than their own face did. That’s what we re striving to do with animation: to take all the messiness of life and make it more pure and easy to understand.”Up was released on May 29, 2009.

Pet Sematary (2019) 57% It only took six years from the time Stephen King published Pet Sematary to see it adapted for the big screen, but it took another 30 and a misguided 1992 sequel before anyone decided to give it another go. Taking the reins this time are directing duo Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, who previously helmed the well-received indie thriller Starry Eyes, and who make a few changes to the original story. In the updated version, a Boston doctor (Jason Clarke) relocates with his wife (Amy Seimetz) and two children to Maine, where he learns about a mysterious burial site behind their new home that s rumored to bring the dead back to life. When tragedy hits the family, he decides to test those rumors, and things begin to spiral out of control. With regard to the critics, not everyone is on board with the new interpretation, and those who aren t feel that the narrative fails to do enough to justify remaking the original. That said, the overall reaction has been positive, with reviews touting the performances for selling their grief with authenticity and the directors for effectively harnessing the more disturbing elements of the source material.

(Photo by © A24)2019 has been such a strong year for wide-release horror films that the upcoming Black Christmas remake could receive a 0% Tomatometer score and the average for the 23 horror films released in 2019 would still be a Fresh 60%. This may not seem all that important, but this is big news for horror fans. Why? Because in the modern era of horror (which we’ll define as from 1980 forward), there hasn’t been a year with a Fresh overall Tomatometer score.This Fresh average shouldn’t come as a surprise to those paying attention to the genre this year – Certified Fresh hits like Us, Crawl, Ready or Not, and Midsommar have won over critics and audiences alike. Even remakes/adaptations are over-performing critically as Child’s Play (63%) and Pet Sematary (57%) are Fresh and very close to it, respectively, when historically horror remakes average a Rotten 44% Tomatometer average.In honor of this Fresh year of theatrically released horror, we pulled the Tomatometer data on the 644 horror movies that received wide releases (defined here as 600+ theaters) in the United States since 1980. We wanted to know how the preceding 40 years of horror films matched up against 2019, and if any year had a higher Tomatometer average.Quick Note: We chose 1980-2019 because there is greater consistency in Tomatometer data than in earlier years. The 1970s were the bomb though.THE OVERALL AVERAGE FOR HORROR FILMS RELEASED SINCE 1980 IS A ROTTEN 43.8%(Photo by Lions Gate / Everett Collection )The overall Tomatometer average for the 644 horror movies that received wide theatrical releases since 1980 is a Rotten 43.8%, and 438 of those movies (or 68%) have scores below 60%. The Rotten far outweigh the Fresh, and for every Green Room, The Descent, The Thing, and Scream 2 , there are movies like Jaws: The Revenge, House of the Dead, I, Frankenstein, Godsend, The Roommate, and Dream House bringing down their average.Another interesting fact (for data nerds and horror movie lovers who are also data nerds) is that since 1990, only five years have had more Fresh horror films than Rotten: 1982 (7 4), 1983 (8 7), 1987 (10 7), 2013 (7 6), and 2019 (12 10). This data makes 2019’s Fresh score even more impressive.On a side note, the years 1997-1999 have a seriously high number of Rotten horror movies that we at RT actually love. Between Anaconda, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, The Faculty, Idle Hands, Blade, Deep Rising, The Relic, The Mummy, Lake Placid, and the king of all Rotten horror movies, Event Horizon (you can read more about Event Horizon as well as Blade in our book Rotten Movies We Love), the years are stacked with Rotten movies that are pretty awesome.THE BEST DECADE FOR HORROR IS THE 1980s. No Surprise there. (Photo by New Line Cinema)Despite having no single year with a Fresh Tomatometer score, the 1980s have the highest overall average with a groovy 52.5%. Buoyed by A Nightmare on Elm Street, Near Dark, The Fly, The Thing, and Fright Night, the 1980s slaughtered the 1990s (43.6%), 2000s (32.2%), and the 2010s (47.1%).Six of the top 10 years in our data set come from the 1980s, and 1987 came close to being Fresh, but the 0%-rated Jaws: The Revenge and the 9% House 2 kept it at a Rotten 57%. A big reason for the 1980s being the highest-rated decade is that it has only one year in the bottom 10 Rottenest years on the list (1989, with a Tomatometer average of 34.4%).2006 HAS THE LOWEST TOMATOMETER AVERAGE, AND THE MOST ROTTEN DECADE IS THE 2000s(Photo by © Warner Bros. )The worst year in our entire data set is 2006, which currently has a Rotten 31.1% average. The distinction is dubious, but at least 2006 kept it interesting with movies like Pan’s Labyrinth, The Descent, Slither, Hostel, Snakes on a Plane, The Hill Have Eyes, and The Wicker Man remake, an amazingly bonkers movie that features Nicolas Cage running all over the place while wearing a bear suit. Also, the first Black Christmas remake was released in 2006, and with a 14% Tomatometer score, the less said, the better.The 2000s as a whole weren’t much better, as the decade averaged a 32% Tomatometer score. Four of the five lowest Tomatometer years in the data set are from the 2000s, and only 33 of the 189 theatrically released movies in that decade have a Fresh Tomatometer score. The numbers may look bad, but on a positive note, the 2000s are responsible for bona fide classics like Shaun of the Dead, 28 Days Later, The Mist, and Zombieland. Plus, movies like Jennifer’s Body, 28 Weeks Later, 30 Days of Night, Constantine, Frailty, Eight Legged Freaks, and The Happening (it’s awesome, get over yourself), are starting to gain their due popularity.Random Tomatometer Fact: Imogen Poots, the star of the upcoming Black Christmas remake, made her horror debut in 2007, appearing in the Fresh 28 Weeks Later (the opening scene is awesome). Since then, she’s crushed it the underrated Fright Night remake and in Green Room, which is one of the best-reviewed horror films of recent memory.2019 HAS THE HIGHEST TOMATOMETER AVERAGE FOR HORROR MOVIES OF ANY YEAR SINCE 1980, AND IS THE ONLY FRESH YEAR,WITH A 63% AVERAGEWhat makes 2019 the only Fresh year in our data set might surprise you. While movies like Us, Doctor Sleep, The Lighthouse, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark helped greatly, it’s the remakes, prequels, sequels, and adaptations that greatly contributed to the overall Freshness. 2019 has been a lot of fun because of movies like Annabelle Comes Home, a sequel to a prequel (Annabelle: Creation) of a prequel (Annabelle), which has a Fresh 64% Tomatometer score. Normally, a horror movie so far removed from the original is almost always Rotten. Toss in the Certified Fresh Crawl (82%), a movie about rampaging alligators, and 3 From Hell, Rob Zombie s 50%-rated sequel to The Devil’s Rejects, and you have movies that are over-performing critically when compared the likes of Lake Placid (46%), Primeval (18%), 31 (47%), and Lords of Salem (46%) from past years.The 25% Tomatometer-rated Countdown, a movie about a ‘killer’ phone app, has the lowest score of any wide-release horror movie in 2019. Typically, a 25% score isn’t reason to celebrate – but when compared to the Rottenest horror movie of each year in our data set, it’s the least Rotten (the closest is 1984’s 23%-rated C.H.U.D.). In fact, the 10 Rotten horror movies released in 2019 have a 46.3% average, which is the highest average for the Rotten films of all the years in our data set. 2019 has the best of the worst, and that’s why it’s Fresh.What is your favorite year for horror?

我叫mt 大大姐 只是因为一些英雄的操作比较复杂，无法和端游保持一致，所以在技能等方面做了一些小的改动，但是玩家们都表示这些改动也很棒。而多数玩家也对英雄联盟手游更加期待了。同时我们也可以看到国服的制作很贴近本土化，有部分玩家觉得和国际服有了很大的区分，这也是比较让人满意的一点，不过最主要的还是画质和英雄的建模方面，简直是还原了端游，并且手游的皮肤和英雄也在不断上线，按照这个速度估计很快就能赶上端游了。
易观分析师廖旭华告诉记者，精品化手游将是未来的趋势。“国内越来越多的开放世界手游，是国内游戏厂商整体研发实力越来越强的体现，也是游戏行业工业化程度越来越高的体现；从用户需求上看，年轻用户对于3A品质的产品需求旺盛，付费意愿和付费能力比一般的产品要高。” It’s been a long time since a Marvel Studios film debuted in theaters. Spider-Man: Far From Home opened on June 26, 2019 to a very different world, with Marvel planning to unveil the first of its Phase Four films the following May. Then the pandemic happened and Black Widow became one of the key markers determining whether or not release dates for big summer movies were viable across the next year and change.And after a number of false starts remember when it was supposed to open in November? Black Widow is in theaters this Friday.Yes, the film’s moment is finally here. But for busy consumers of media now taken with Fear Street, Cruel Summer, or even Marvel s own Loki television series, key details once fresh in their minds about Natasha Romanoff s (Scarlett Johansson) adventures may have been forgotten. Honestly, it is easy to lose track of an ongoing story two years later even in the best of times. Luckily, we’ve compiled the five things you should remember before heading to the theater – or drive-in, or your couch – to watch Marvel’s return to the movies.It Is Set Between Captain America: Civil War And Avengers: Infinity War(Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)This one might seem obvious to those following the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe closely and waiting with bated breath for the arrival of Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. At the same time, though, there are those who might assume the film takes place in the relative present alongside WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, despite the fact that Natasha Romanoff is currently, well, unavailable, as it were. In fact, it is possible for members of either camp to so completely believe their assumptions about Black Widow that they are unaware anyone else thinks differently.Nonetheless, the film takes place a short time after Nat goes on the run following her choice to allow Captain America (Chris Evans) and Bucky (Sebastian Stan) to escape the Berlin airport in Captain America: Civil War. How much time has passed between the films is unclear, even as Marvel becomes more precise about when certain MCU events occurred. Using the film’s release date as a marker, Black Widow is set after May 6, 2016.Yes, Civil War was that long ago.On the other end, it can take place no later than April 27, 2018 – the date Avengers: Infinity War was released. Although, considering where Nat is when she first appears in that film, we’re inclined to believe Black Widow takes place in 2017. Splitting the difference between the films on either side of Black Widow seems to make the most sense.All this grousing about the film s setting along the Marvel timeline may seem like needless nitpicking, but it does matter, as it sets up Nat’s emotional arc. This is someone without her friends for the first time in a long time. And although Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) can be annoying, they are like family. Think about how quickly she bonded with Steve Rogers and you’ll see how the Nat we’re about to see in Black Widow could be, well, sad an unusual place for the character to start a journey.Natasha Was A Russian Spy(Photo by ©Marvel Studios)Of course, her training in the Red Room may allow her to keep those emotions in check. What we’ve seen of the Red Room – the ex-Soviet program dedicated to training children into spies – indicates it would force a rather extreme suppression of emotions to survive. Well, presuming her very brief admission of what occurred there in Avengers: Age of Ultron is anything to go by.But beyond the way the Red Room training might regulate her emotions, it is important to keep Nat’s status as a former Russian spy in mind because she is headed back into that world. It is a place of guns instead of lasers, bike chases instead of time heists, and darker ideas than even Thanos can imagine, though we doubt the film will delve far into the full terror of what it means to be a Black Widow. This is still a Disney picture, after all.Also, thanks to the trailers, we know part of her spy training was being part of a “family” consisting of Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Alexi Shostakov (David Harbour), and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz). The nature of that family remains to be seen – could they all turn around and betray her? We expect resolving the nature of their bond (if one even exists), as opposed to the tale of how she defected to S.H.I.E.L.D., is a big reason for the film s setting.We ll Always Have Budapest (Photo by Zade Rosenthal/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)From the Black Widow trailers, we can see Natasha is headed back to Budapest as part of her reunion with Yelena. That city holds some special significance for Nat that, we assume, will become clearer as the film unfolds.Both she and Clint reference Budapest in The Avengers and Avengers: Endgame, although, as Nat pointed out in Avengers, Clint’s memory of the operation is very different. In fact, exposing the nature of what happened there is something Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) tried to use against Nat in Captain America: The Winter Soldier when she prepares to expose all of Hydra’s secrets to the world.Clearly, something bad happened in the Hungarian capital while Nat and Clint both worked for S.H.I.E.L.D. Will it point to the agency’s return in subsequent Marvel movies or shows? We doubt it. If we get any additional clarity on the operation, it will be squarely focused on Natasha Romanoff. For one thing, this is her movie, not a S.H.I.E.L.D. flick. And for another, if this really is Johansson’s final turn as Black Widow, this is the absolute last chance to explain Budapest to all the Marvel fans who’ve tracked the reference across the last decade.Marvel Means Big Action (In Theaters Anyway)(Photo by ©Marvel Studios)Although the three Marvel Studios TV shows on Disney+ have been impressive in their own ways, they tend to avoid the spectacle of a Captain America: Civil War or an Iron Man 3. Instead, the shows go for more contained fights without as many explosions or car chases. Some of them can be quite thrilling, but still pale in comparison to, say, Nick Fury s (Samuel L. Jackson) attempts to evade Hydra in The Winter Soldier. From the reviews we’ve seen of Black Widow, it seems that sort of explosive action is back in a big way. And, to be fair to the TV shows, which still pulled off some great things, explosions and car chases belong to movies more than television. They have the time and budget to pull those things off more effectively. Well, at least for now, anyway.Meanwhile, we imagine if you’ve spent the last 18 months at home, the spectacle of Black Widow may be jarring. Of course, it is also possible you’ve already seen F9 and you re ready for more explosions, cars getting crushed, and the like. Nevertheless, there are some who may be startled by the level of action in this film and, if they brave the theaters, the volume of the elaborate speaker systems. It is something even avid moviegoers need to adjust to after so long a time without theatrical releases, and this is to say nothing of just being inside a theater again if Black Widow is your first return to the movies since March of 2020. That could be a shock all its own before the film even starts.Leviathan May Resurface(Photo by Patrick Wymore/©ABC)This might be a long shot, but as we were avid Agent Carter fans, we’re never going to let this one go. The short lived Hayley Atwell series introduced a character known as Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan). Although never outright called a Black Widow, she was trained at the Red Room Academy in Belarus in manner quite similar to the instruction Natasha would receive decades later. Initially ordered to aid in obtaining secret Stark technology, she came into contact with Peggy Carter (Atwell) and the Strategic Scientific Reserve the forerunner agency to S.H.I.E.L.D.In a curious twist, Dottie’s orders came not from Hydra, but from Leviathan, a Soviet program devoted to both scientific research and espionage. Behaving in a similar manner to Hydra – with a side order of secret society shenanigans – Leviathan seemed poised to become Peggy s main adversary in Season 3 before ABC sadly cancelled the series. But considering Endgame’s acknowledgment of the program via star James D’Arcy’s cameo as Edwin Jarvis, there is room for Black Widow to offer us some clarity on the matter, if even just to say the Red Room continued Leviathan s objectives following the fall of the Soviet Union.Again, we admit Leviathan is the least likely thing you need to remember before seeing Black Widow, but it is always possible Marvel Studios will put it into play as it fleshes out more of Nat’s past. Also, like the Red Room itself, it could still be operational in 2017, to say nothing of Phase Four’s present day.Black Widow opens in theaters and streams on Disney+ with Premier Access on July 9, 2021.On an Apple device?

Best-Reviewed Action Adventure Movies 2020A revisionist romp through Victorian England awaits adventurous movie thrill-seekers in Enola Holmes, which fashions young star Millie Bobby Brown, a budding sleuth hot in the footsteps of her famous older brother. Then, the military movie canon gets another medal with The Outpost, depicting the most brutal American conflict out of the Afghanistan War. Tom Hanks Greyhound is nearby in the wings, though its presentation of the war movie is in a more decidedly classical mode. Meanwhile, the post-apocalypse is still going strong in Love and Monsters, and the surprise hit Bad Boys For Life is the best kind of action movie throwback.The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of February 28, 2021.
