Join us weekly as Rotten Tomatoes reports on what s opening, expanding, and coming to the specialty box office. From promising releases from new voices to experimental efforts from storied filmmakers – or perhaps the next indie darling to go the distance for end-of-year accolades – we will break it all down for you here each week in Fresh Indie Finds. This week at the specialty box office, we find a documentary about a firebrand Texas journalist who famously dubbed President George W. Bush shrub (aka The little Bush) and a political thriller, starring Keira Knightley, about translator-turned-whistleblower Katharine Gun, who risked everything to bring light to an illegal spying operation by the United States of America. In our Indie Trailer section, we find new clips featuring Tye Sheridan and Jeff Goldblum and a new documentary on Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher.Opening This Weekend Disney+ announces price lower than Netflix, Hawkeye gets a series while previously announced series get titles, Game of Thrones goes licensing-mad for final season, The Walking Dead gets another spin-off, American Horror Story teaser trailer, Titans casts Bruce Wayne, and more.TOP STORYAvengers Assemble on Disney+(Photo by Marvel Studios)On Thursday evening, Disney CEO Bob Iger presented to investors, detailing the company s streaming plans: Disney+ launches November 12, 2019, and will cost .99 per month.

(Photo by Sarah Shatz/Netflix)Author Jenny Han is an expert on crushes, romances and meet-cutes. In addition to other titles in her catalog, her To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before book trilogy is an international best-seller that has inspired three Netflix movies – the last of which, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, was released February 12 on the streaming channel. Peppered with references, both vague and blatant, to its rom-com ancestors, the films follow Lana Condor’s high schooler Lara Jean Covey and her commitment to baked goods, her sisters, and, eventually, her near-perfect boyfriend, Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo).So it isn’t really a surprise that Han is frequently asked about her favorite romantic comedies.“I ve gone back and forth over it, but for me, my favorite that I can turn on and it puts me in a good mood and it s just comforting is Bridget Jones s Diary,” Han says of the Renée Zellweger film. “I think it s a gold standard. And I mean, there s a reason she (Zellweger) was nominated for an Academy Award for that.”And, as anyone who has read Han’s books or seen the To All the Boys movies knows, she says she “love(s) love triangles.” Han says that the one in Bridget Jones particularly works because the two potential suitors, Colin Firth’s Mark Darcy and Hugh Grant’s Daniel Cleaver, both “feel like legitimate options, even though Daniel is a cad.”This isn’t to say that Han has seen every romantic comedy ever. She tried watching Broadcast News on a plane and failed and says that “I don t think I fully appreciated” Heartburn because she saw it as a kid when a friend’s older sister had rented it. Han remembers that she “drifted away from the television” thinking that the relationship dynamic between Meryl Streep’s Rachel Samstat and Jack Nicholson’s Mark Forman “seems messed up.” (She was not wrong.)It’s even debatable whether or not those two movies are even romantic comedies – something that also happens a lot to movies about teens.“For instance, I would say that Breakfast Club gets shelved in romantic comedy,” Han says. However, “I don t really think it s that romantic. I think, with a teen love story, oftentimes it s a lot more about their whole life and family and stuff. And I think, oftentimes, with adult romantic comedies, it s really more about the romance. And so I think coming-of-age can be shelved also in romantic comedy.”Read on for a list of some movies (and one TV show!) that are some of Han’s favorite romantic comedies – even if her definition of the term may be up for debate.沙巴体育注册良心传奇正版手游，一款有着非常经典玩法的多人传奇手游，游戏中每天都有着万人同屏攻沙，玩家们尅一邀请自己的好友一同加入他们，场景中还有着多种模式和玩法等着玩家们，保证玩家们玩上一天的都不会腻的。喜欢的玩家还在等什么，快来下载玩耍吧！

Directors for the first season include Taika Waititi — who also voices assassin droid IG-11 — Bryce Dallas Howard, and Rick Famuyiwa.“This is where you re going to see a lot of people that are working in this incubator of story and technology,” Favreau said. “[It’s] people who got together because they love Star Wars.”But the most exciting inclusion in the first season’s director brigade for long time fans is Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni. After steering the Star Wars animated ship for the last decade or so, he makes his live action debut with The Mandalorian’s debut episode. And without giving too much away, we can say the material feels like Filoni work.“I treated it as boot camp for me to learn this type of filmmaking. I was on set every day, the whole season. And so I ve learned [by] watching every single one of our directors,” Filoni said, adding that watching the great cast and crew behind the scenes was also an education.As an animation director, he already knew the key elements of visual storytelling, but he admitted at least one practical element of live action filmmaking eluded him until working on The Mandalorian. “I didn t really have to worry [if] the sun is going down [in animation],” Filoni said. Despite losing complete control of lighting situations on the show’s gorgeous locations, Filoni said he enjoyed the “concrete nature” of shooting live action.“It s incredibly spontaneous. It s going to happen right there, in the moment, and then that s it,” he explained. “[In animation,] I can tweak a tiny eyebrow or a tiny smirk [of a character] … just a little bit of push in a direction will dramatically change the character.”But, he admitted, capturing that moment in live action is “the real magic” of putting actors in front of a camera.

Japanese horror movies got a big leg-up in the 1950s and 1960s with Ugetsu and Kwaidan, before spinning heads over time with transgressive cult works (Tetsuo: The Ironman), comedic takes (Hausu, One Cut of the Dead), and crossover hits (Ringu, Audition). And we d be remiss to not include at least the original kaiju movie, Godzilla. It was created in response to nuclear oblivion, and creating art to process real trauma is one of the core values of horror.And now we ve gathered every Japanese horror movie with a Fresh rating and ranked them by Tomatometer, creating your guide to the best Japanese horror movies of all time.Best Spanish-Language Horror Movies | Best Korean Horror MoviesBest Italian Horror Movies | Best French Horror Movies2020 s Best Horror Movies | 200 Best Horror Movies Ever
Part of what marginalization from cinema does to the self-perception of an underrepresented community is that it tricks us into believing we were absent from its larger history. But though equity remains distant – especially when thinking about the greater diversity within a single ethnic group – our work has long uplifted and helped evolve the art form.Pioneers of Hispanic descent in the United States have been lending their wide-ranging talents to the medium of film since its earliest days in ways that have impacted the dominant culture. On the occasion of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15), we are celebrating some of these groundbreaking mavericks who, through their craft and vision, accomplished boundary-pushing firsts in their field or dared to go against the current of established conventions and laid the foundation for others to follow in their steps.These 10 names can’t fully encompass the breadth of more than a century of contributions, but their momentous triumphs provide a sense of our outsized contribution to and influence on cinema. Read about their accomplishments, and then see what critics have had to say about their work.This article was done in conjunction with the RT Archives project, for which our curators dig through historical catalogs and other sources to find contemporaneous reviews for movies released since the birth of cinema. Beatriz Michelena(Photo by Public Domain)While her career in the movies was brief, Venezuelan-American star Beatriz Michelena captivated both the press and audiences during the silent film era, specifically in the 1910s. Her debut performance in 1914’s Salomy Jane, as a woman after revenge, launched a streak of successes. Before the decade was out, she had starred in 16 features playing roles that challenged the conventions for women at the time that featured horseback riding and fight scenes. Beyond her allure in front of the camera, she was also an entrepreneur, deeply involved in the moviemaking process, who eventually became the co-owner of a studio, the California Picture Company, with husband George E. Middleton. No picture since motion pictures came into being has more of beauty, action and heart interest than this masterpiece at a single bound Beatriz Michelena, the star of the Western idyl, has assumed a place second to none as a motion picture actress. Review of Salomy Jane from San Francisco Chronicle, Dec. 8, 1914Bill Melendez(Photo by © Ted Streshinsky/CORBIS/Corbis via Getty Images)An animation legend like few others, Bill Melendez was born in Hermosillo, Sonora in northern Mexico but raised in Arizona. Early in his career as an animator, he was involved in some of Walt Disney Animation Studios most iconic 1940s features, including Pinocchio, Bambi, and Dumbo. Yet, his most substantial contribution to the medium and culture at large was ushering Charles Schultz’s Peanuts comic strip characters from the pages to the screen with the blessing of the creator. Over a 50-year career, he directed numerous television specials featuring the gang, most notably the classics A Charlie Brown Christmas and It s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. (He is directing young voice actors for the latter in the photo above.) Director Bill Melendez concentrates on atmosphere more than anything else; he sets up unrelated jokes, or simply enjoys watching the autumn leaves fall gently to the ground. Review of It s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown by Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible CelluloidRoberto Gavaldón(Photo by courtesy the Everett Collection)A prolific director during the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema who worked with some of the era’s most prominent stars, Roberto Gavaldón began his career in film as an extra for studio productions in Los Angeles. Upon returning to Mexico in the 1930s, he climbed his way to the director’s chair wearing many hats behind the scenes. In 1955, after success at home, Gavaldón directed his only American film, The Littlest Outlaw, which was a Disney production with an all-Mexican cast lead by Pedro Armendáriz. His 1960 effort Macario, grounded in the Day of the Death tradition, became the first Mexican film to be nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. Director Roberto Gavaldón takes this basic situation and weaves skillful action, centering his story on Andres Velasquez, whose performance has seldom been equaled by a child thesp in point of appeal. Review of The Littlest Outlaw by Whitney Willaims, Variety, Dec. 21, 1955George A. Romero(Photo by © Orion/courtesy Everett Collection)The influence of Night of the Living Dead in horror cinema is so immeasurable that it’s difficult to conceive it was George A. Romero s first film. Considered the father of zombie movies, the visionary artist, whose father was Spanish, made that defining production with a minuscule budget through a production company he founded with friends: Image Ten. With his subsequent output in the genre, Romero built a catalogue of brilliantly disturbing fantasies that includes The Crazies, Dawn of the Dead, and Creepshow. Presumed lost for decades, his 1973 film The Amusement Park was ultimately undead : Restored from a 16mm print unearthed in 2017, it was finally released earlier this year, almost half a century later. Night of the Living Dead gets through by tapping some real apprehensions A true piece of modern American gothic, the film has the wit to use horror instead of being used by it. Review of Night of the Living Dead by Penelope Houston, The Spectator, June 20, 1970Gregory Nava(Photo by ©New Line Cinema/courtesy Everett Collection)Responsible for some of the most emblematic and beloved movies about Hispanics in the U.S., director Gregory Nava has repeatedly broken new ground. Although best known for My Family, an ensemble epic across borders that deals with the mass deportations of people of Mexican descent in the late 1920s and 1930s, and Selena, a biopic on the late Texan singer that catapulted Jennifer Lopez’s acting career, his 1984 drama El Norte made history. The lyrical story of two Guatemalan immigrants in Los Angeles was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and it’s one of the few films by a U.S.-born Hispanic director to be part of the National Film Registry and the Criterion Collection. The film is sweet but never cloying. The continuity doesn t break because the actors all excellent convincingly resemble the others who played the same characters in the past. [Full review in Spanish] Review of Mi Familia by Rene Jordan, El Nuevo Herald (Miami), May 9, 1995Joseph B. Vásquez(Photo by © New Line/courtesy Everett Collection)For Afro-Latino writer-director Joseph B. Vásquez, filmmaking came into his life when he got his hands on a Super 8 camera at the age of 12. Fighting his own battles with mental illness as a child raised around addiction, he turned his creative lens to the complexities of life in the South Bronx, first with projects he developed by sheer determination. The pinnacle of this thematic exploration came with Hangin with the Homeboys, a semi-autobiographical work produced by New Line Cinema that drew from his own experiences as a biracial young man in NYC. (A portrait of the cast is seen above.) The comic drama, which won the Screenwriting Award at the 1991 Sundance Film Festival, starred John Leguizamo in one of his first major roles and follows a diverse group of friends. Vasquez open-hearted view toward his characters redeems even the hoariest clichés of this otherwise engaging and admirable addition to the guys-night-out sub-genre. Review of Hangin with the Homeboys by Gene Seymour, Newsday, May 24, 1991Lourdes Portillo(Photo by Amanda Edwards/WireImage)Straddling the culture line between Mexico and the United States, documentary filmmaker Lourdes Portillo has aimed her inquisitive gaze at social justice issues across the Americas since the late 1970s. For her 1985 feature, The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, which focuses on a group of fearless women demanding answers from the Argentine government about their disappeared loved ones, she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Documentary as co-director with Susana Blaustein Muñoz. Portillo’s profoundly personal and artistically bold work The Devil Never Sleeps, which chronicles the mysterious death of her uncle, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 1995. [Lourdes Portillo] manipulates her film intercutting it with Mexican soap operas, projecting interviews onto the frames of sunglasses to point to the melodrama her family mystery has become. The effect is breathtaking. Review of The Devil Never Sleeps by Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, L.A. Weekly, Nov. 2, 1995Patricia Cardoso(Photo by eff Kravitz/FilmMagic, Inc)A native of Bogota, Colombia, Patricia Cardoso had a previous existence as an anthropologist before venturing into cinematic storytelling. In 1996 she became the first Hispanic woman to win a Student Academy Award for her short film The Water Carrier. That milestone was followed by what would become her most notable work to date, the coming-of-age story Real Women Have Curves. Telling a cross-generational saga centered around Mexican-American women, this landmark film – recently added to the National Film Registry – was based on the play by Josefina Lopez and gave America Ferrera her first-ever role. (The director is pictured with Ferrera above.) Cardoso also became the first Hispanic woman to win the Sundance Audience Award for this singular take on womanhood. Firmly entrenched in Mexican American culture without the insistent need to be about the culture, it s one of the best Latino films ever made. Review of Real Women Have Curves by Omar L. Gallaga, Austin American-Statesman, Oct. 25, 2002Ramón Menendez(Photo by © Warner Bros. / courtesy the Everett Collection)Cuban-American director Ramon Menéndez s first behind-the-scenes credit was as an assistant director on Oliver Stone’s Salvador. His breakthrough came in 1988, helming Stand and Deliver, a moving drama about real-life teacher Jaime Escalante that earned Edward James Olmos an Oscar nomination. For his work, Menendez won two Independent Spirit Awards for Best Director and Best Screenplay (with co-writer Tom Musca). This inspirational tale, now in the National Film Registry, also won the prize for Best Feature and has become a staple at schools across the nation. Menendez was also one of the screenwriters behind Tortilla Soup, a heartfelt comedy about a Hispanic chef and his three daughters that became a box-office success. Director Menéndez has skillfully captured both the school and the kids home environments. Nothing is prettified. We are given barrio life in its beautiful-ugly rawness. Casting choices for the kids are generally brilliant. Review of Stand and Deliver by Ruben Martinez, L.A. Weekly, Mar. 17, 1988Robert Rodriguez(Photo by ©Columbia Pictures/courtesy Everett Collection)Back in the early 1990s when El Mariachi was released, the story of its making (with a jaw-droppingly modest price tag of ,000) instantly put the spotlight on Robert Rodriguez for being a fiercely resourceful talent in independent cinema. The feat had even greater value considering his action-packed debut was in Spanish and shot in Mexico. Since then, the Mexican American director has continued to dismantle preconceptions about what Hispanic stories can be with the success of the Spy Kids franchise and titles such as Sin City and Machete. Throughout his many projects, he’s made it a mandate to cast U.S. born Hispanics as well as Latin American and Spanish talent, helping names like Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas break into the Hollywood machine. [Robert Rodriguez s] brio is infectious – not just because he s so willing to try anything but because he has a born comedian s superb sense of timing. For all its gunplay and dead bodies, his movie works like an expertly honed stage farce. Review of El Mariachi by Eleanor Ringel Cater, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 14, 1993With additional research by Tim Ryan and Sara AtaiiyanOn an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News. Daniel Radcliffe may never in his lifetime escape questions about his most-famous role: Harry Potter. Fortunately, the star doesn t mind fielding fan queries, including those from Potterhead colleagues and the occasional journalist.Radcliffe s Miracle Workers costar Karan Soni, who plays Sanjay, was the biggest Potterhead on the cast, Radcliffe revealed, and he was happy to indulge Soni.“I think there’s like an expectation that I will hate talking about it, which I really don’t particularly,” Radcliffe told Rotten Tomatoes.Radcliffe now stars in surreal TBS comedy Miracle Workers, which presents Heaven, Inc. as a regular office grind where employees try to answer prayers every day. God (Steve Buscemi) is over it and decides one day that he’s going to blow up the Earth.(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Angels Craig (Radcliffe) and Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) convince God to give them a chance to prove humans are worth preserving. If they can perform one miracle in two weeks, God will let the Earth live. The prayer they’ve chosen to answer: Help Sam (Jon Bass) and Laura (Sasha Compere) fall in love.The angels can’t directly interfere with Sam and Laura. They can just set things up and hope they work. It’s like a game of Sims with real people.“They’re a lot more caring with them than I was with my Sims,” Radcliffe said. “I killed my Sims accidentally. I put the fridge the wrong way around and didn’t realize.”Viswanathan confessed to even more sadistic Sim abuse.“I used to take the ladder out of the pool and just watch them suffer,” she said of her Sims abuse, which shocked her costar.“That’s you killing them!” Radcliffe objected. “I accidentally made my guy die. That’s a murder.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Heaven, Inc.’s interference on the show also has collateral damage. Obstacles they throw in Sam and Laura’s path may have deadlier impacts on completely innocent bystanders.“It does, but it is all for the goal of saving the entire world,” Radcliffe said in defense of the angels. “We’re in a world where virtually anything can be justified in order to save the existence of the species as a whole.”Miracle Workers is a dark comedy that way, but it’s ultimately optimistic.“There’s a through-line of hope even when it’s really messed up and extremely dark,” Viswanathan said. “They’re just sticking together and believing in something and going for it. That’s very much the ethos of the show.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Miracle Workers showcases Radcliffe’s comedic side. He has had funny cameos in films like Trainwreck and shows like Bojack Horseman, and he even played a farting corpse in 2016 film Swiss Army Man opposite Paul Dano.“I’ve always loved doing comedy,” Radcliffe said. “I think I’ve done a fair amount that certain people have seen. Swiss Army Man is a fairly niche film. The stage shows I’ve done have actually mostly been comedy in some way. I love it. It’s a very lovely thing, particularly on a set like this where you just have to go to set and try and be stupid every day and make people laugh.”And Miracle Workers can be gloriously stupid. One joke is just about how to pronounce “gyro.” Most foodies know it sounds like “yee-ro,” not like a gyroscope.“I thought it was ‘gyro’ as well, but my girlfriend — near where Erin grew up is a huge Middle Eastern community — and she was like, ‘No, it’s yee-ro,” Radcliffe said.(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)If Miracle Workers is a hit, there will be a second season, but it won’t be about the same angels. Creator Simon Rich’s plan is to make Miracle Workers an anthology series.“The idea would be to reset it in a different time, place, characters — sort of to do for comedy what American Horror Story is for horror,” Radcliffe said. “Once you’ve saved the world, it’s hard to find where to go from there for the second series, I think.”Whether or not that means season 1 ends with a miracle or we all die, it will be a definitive ending.“The opportunity TBS gave him to do was to do a totally self-contained season so you didn’t have to, as a writer, write an open-ended ending which may or may not go onto something in season 2,” Radcliffe said of Rich s deal. “Essentially they let us make a three-hour film with commercials.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Returning to our Potter obsession (and Radcliffe s patient accommodation), we related that when his Potter costar Rupert Grint spoke to us for Snatch season 2, he said it was weird for him to watch another actor play Ron Weasley in the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Radcliffe hasn’t seen the play yet, but not because of another actor playing Harry.“I think I would find it weirder just sitting in the audience and know that people were probably looking at what my reaction to the thing was,” Radcliffe said. “That’s kind of the reason I haven’t gone.”It’s hard to believe that it has been eight years since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Radcliffe has had a whole career since then, but he’ll always be Harry Potter.“It’s still a big part of my life, but I’ve gotten to go on and do loads of other things,” Radcliffe said. “I’m very happy with how it’s all gone. If you told me at the time that I was going to be sitting here eight years later talking about this amazing, weird series that I love, I’d be very, very happy with that sort of thing.”Most actors don’t get one or the other. Radcliffe considers himself blessed to have both.“I don’t think the idea of me always being known as Harry Potter and the idea of me just being an actor who does lots of stuff are mutually exclusive,” Radcliffe said. “I think they can both be true. So far they have been so fingers crossed.”Miracle Workers premieres Tuesday, February 12 at 10:30 p.m. on TBS. The premiere is available for viewing now at TBS.com.
Casting notice reveals Batwoman producers have ditched the Kate Kane role for a more goofy alter ego, Cobra Kai must find a new streaming home, Patrick Dempsey returns to U.S. TV in Italian crime series, Gal Gadot TV series moves to Apple TV+, Joe Exotic foe Carole Baskin is awarded his zoo, and more recent top TV news.TOP STORYRuby Rose’s Replacement Will Play a New Alter Ego as Batwoman(Photo by Frank Ockenfels 3/The CW )Not only was the Batwoman Season 1 finale the last episode of the series for star Ruby Rose, but it was also the last episode for her character, Kate Kane.As The CW begins the process of casting a new lead actress for the series after Rose quit the DC Universe drama following its May premiere season finale, the network has decided to create a new character who will don the Batwoman suit.Kate Kane was the cousin of Bruce Wayne, the alter ego of Batman. But Decider.com reports that, as per a casting notice, the new character will be named Ryan Wilder. The scoop on Ryan: she’s mid- to late 20s, may be of any ethnicity, and she’s “likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the batsuit before her.”More details for the new Batwoman star, who will take over the role when the series returns in January 2021: “With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. A girl who would steal milk for an alley cat could also kill you with her bare hands … Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.”The casting notice also encourages, “Performers who identify as LGBTQ are encouraged to submit.” The first season of Batwoman made history as the first live-action series to feature a lesbian superhero as the lead.Cobra Kai Moving from YouTube to a New Home – Netflix? Hulu? – for Season 3Bad news: still no release date for the much-anticipated third season of Cobra Kai. But the good news: that premiere date should be announced as soon as the Karate Kid sequel series lands at its new streaming service home. Deadline reports YouTube had decided it would not order additional seasons of the series after Season 3 because of a pivot to focus on unscripted series. Cobra Kai producer Sony Television then asked YouTube if it could shop Season 3 around to other networks — with the hope that a new service would want to also order additional seasons — and YouTube agreed. According to Deadline, all the major streaming services were interested in the series, which quickly earned a huge fanbase when it premiered in 2018, and now it’s down to Hulu and Netflix as the two most likely to snag the show.No spoilers for those who have yet to watch the series — one of the most bingeworthy dramas of the pandemic, FYI — but Season 2 ended with a major cliffhanger regarding the status of one of the breakout younger characters of the series, which stars original Karate Kid cast members Ralph Macchio and William Zabka.From Cobra Kai co-creator Jon Hurwitz: “Clarity is out there when it comes to the reasons for the delay in Season 3 s release. I promise you will hear from us the moment there s something official to announce. Hopefully soon. Just know that our priorities are always what s best for the show and its future.”The CW Adds Patrick Dempsey Italian Thriller Series to Its Fall Schedule(Photo by The CW)The CW is getting devilish with its fall lineup, courtesy of Patrick Dempsey. The Grey’s Anatomy alum is the star of a French-Italian co-production series called Devils, which The CW is adding to its Wednesday night lineup in the fall. The 10-episode premiere season of the series, which aired in Italy earlier this year, is a financial-themed drama set in the London office of a major U.S. investment bank. Dominic Morgan (Dempsey) mentors ruthless banker Massimo Ruggero (Alessandro Borghi, Suburra), until Morgan promotes another colleague instead of Ruggero. Bitter feelings ensue, and Massimo becomes the prime suspect in a murder case. Will Morgan be an ally or a foe in his time of need?The English-language thriller, which also stars Paul Chowdhry, Laia Costa, Sallie Harmsen, Malachi Kirby, Pia Mechler, Harry Michell, Lars Mikkelsen, and Kasia Smutniak, has already been renewed for a second season.New Trailers: The Americans Star Matthew Rhys Unfolds an Origins Story in HBO’s Perry Mason RemakeMatthew Rhys, Tatiana Maslany, and John Lithgow star in HBO s Perry Mason, the origin story of American fiction s most legendary criminal defense attorney.
