Brett Arnold, Consequence of SoundFrank Sheeran gives [De Niro] his most satisfying lead role in years. Eric Kohn, IndieWireDe Niro’s superb performance is a close cousin to his work in GoodFellas. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyWhat a joy it is to have Pesci back on the screen and to see him deliver such soulful work in the process…. the film really belongs to Pesci. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmJoe Pesci emerges from retirement to give a superbly measured performance… the polar opposite of the lit-fuse firecrackers Pesci famously portrayed for Scorsese. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterAnd when they re together?De Niro and Pacino play off one another beautifully, with De Niro often playing the calm straight-man to Pacino’s loudmouth comedian. A warmth radiates between the two. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmWhen [Pesci] and De Niro are onscreen together, you believe in the power of art. A.O. Scott, New York Times(Photo by Netflix)What about Al Pacino?Pacino arrives almost a third of the way into the film and instantly electrifies it. Caryn James, BBC.comPacino shines among an incredible cast. [It s] his best display of rampant emotion and thoughtful characterization since Heat. He is Hoffa. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviewsMore than just a believably magnetic Hoffa, Pacino kicks the film into the realm of pure, delicious crazy. Joshua Rothkopf, Time OutPacino’s over-the-top presence borders on parody, but at the same time, feels attuned to the larger-than-life shadow that Hoffa cast in his prime. Eric Kohn, IndieWireHow distracting is the de-aging effect?Is the de-aging process perfect? Of course not… the process is still amazing, and there’s a strange, singular way that it works for the movie. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyThe de-aging is pretty good. I’d say the best I’ve seen so far… you do get used to it. Mike Ryan, UproxxThe eyes adjust to the illusion. Moreover, this magic trick speaks to the unreliable unreality of memory itself… a problem with (potentially accidental) resonance. A.A. Dowd, AV ClubAfter a while, you adjust, or rather, you get tired of probing the slightly-off evidence of your eyes and the headache it produces. There’s a lot of fun to distract you. Joshua Rothkopf, Time OutNow and then I had to stave off a PTSD flashback to Robert Zemeckis’ Polar Express. Stephanie Zacharek, Time Magazine(Photo by Netflix)What about the runtime?The film, which clocks in at 209 minutes — even longer than The Return of the King and Avengers: Endgame — barely feels its length. Karen Han, PolygonThis is a remarkably brisk three-and-a-half hours — Scorsese, at a ripe 76, still directs with the energy of a hungry young filmmaker. A.A. Dowd, AV ClubThe material would have been better served by losing an hour or more to run at standard feature length, or bulking up on supporting-character and plot detail to flesh out a series. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterI’m not sure The Irishman needed all 209 minutes… even when the characters are younger, [it] moves at a leisurely (or even elderly) pace. Matt Singer, ScreenCrushHow s the pacing?Its last half-hour is deeply moving in a way that creeps up on you, and it’s then that you see what Scorsese was working toward all along. Stephanie Zacharek, Time MagazineThe Irishman doesn’t fully engage until its second act. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviews[Steve] Zaillian’s messy script, an ambitious assemblage of timelines, takes its time to fully immerse the viewer into its world… the second half is more lively. Jordan Ruimy, World of ReelIt’s a film that only gets further under your skin after you leave the theater (or close your Netflix browser, as the case may be). Karen Han, Polygon(Photo by Netflix)Does it need to be seen in a theater?The film, by design, is episodic in a way that’s small-screen-friendly. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyThe movie s self-indulgent running time of three-and-a-half hours will pose challenges for home-screen viewing. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterIt should go without saying but yes, if you can, definitely see a new Martin Scorsese movie on the big screen first. Frazier Tharpe, ComplexWhat about the film s female characters?If one fault could be found with Scorsese’s latest work, it’s the waste of intriguing women characters. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviewsFor much of The Irishman, the women are at the margins — wives and daughters, always around, rarely saying anything. This isn’t atypical in Scorsese’s work, which rarely centers on women. Alissa Wilkinson, VoxThe movie lacks a strong female voice but such limitations speak to Sheeran’s character flaws more than those of The Irishman. Eric Kohn, IndieWireIt s a shoo-in for the Oscars, though, isn t it?In terms of the Oscar race, The Irishman is what we thought it was, a likely Best Picture contender with a chance at a truckload of nominations. Gregory Ellwood, The PlaylistIf the Best Supporting Actor Oscar came down to Pacino and Pesci, I have no idea who I’d support. Both performances are transcendently good. Brett Arnold, Consequence of SoundThe Irishman opens in limited release on November 1 and releases on Netflix on November 27.

How do you turn yourself into the world’s most formidable chess prodigy when you barely know how to play the game yourself? That was the question facing Anya Taylor-Joy as she prepared to step into the mind of Beth Harmon, the protagonist of Walter Tevis’s novel The Queen’s Gambit and its lavish Netflix adaptation, which arrives on the service this month. Set in the 1950s and ’60s, the limited series follows Harmon’s rise from orphan with a talent to teen prodigy to national champion, all as she deals with addiction to tranquilizers – crippling, but sometimes useful when she’s plotting her moves alone at night – and the men of the chess-world boys’ club who want to keep her out. Ahead of the series’ release, Taylor-Joy sat down with us to break down how she tapped into Harmon’s pain, why she relates to her solitary pursuit, and how her dance training helped her feign a mastery of pawns, rooks, and knights. (Thumbnail image courtesy of Netflix)The Queen s Gambit is available on Netflix from Friday, October 23, 2020. On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News. In 2015, Sylvester Stallone passed the torch to Michael B. Jordan, as Creed successfully introduced the world to another scrappy underdog in the Rocky saga, Adonis Creed. That film was a critical and commercial success, but it was just the first chapter of Adonis Creed s journey. This week, the franchise returns to one of its most iconic moments the tragic fight between Russian boxer Ivan Drago and Adonis Creed s father Apollo in Rocky IV  for Creed II, a tale of revenge and redemption that bridges the generations and ties the new champ s story to Rocky s legacy.RT editor Jacqueline Coley sat down with director Steven Caple Jr. and stars Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren, and Florian Munteanu to chat about the new film; talk about the growth of Adonis, Bianca, and their relationship; explain how difficult a language Russian is; and discuss training montages and music collaborations. Also, we learn about Sylvester Stallone s on-set shenanigans.Creed II opens in theaters on November 21.

(Photo by © Warner Bros. / courtesy Everett Collection)When Ben Affleck first burst onto most moviegoers’ radars alongside childhood best friend Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting – and collected a screenplay Oscar for his efforts – he seemed destined for a venerable acting career. Damon may have been the hit movie s lead, but Affleck pulled focus in fascinating ways. Next to Robin Williams’ conversation by the pond, and the famous “it’s not your fault scene,” Affleck  delivered one of the film’s most affecting moments when his character – a construction worker – rebuked Will for not maximizing his potential as a mathematician. The then 25-year-old s ability to move people, and his offbeat and mysterious charisma, had many critics predicting a bright future in prestige projects with a regular awards-season presence. He was going to be more DiCaprio than Stallone. And then something happened.From 1998 to 2006, studios attempted to fashion Ben Affleck into a prototypical leading man and his career went a decidedly different way than many had foreseen. First, he went the American hero route in Michael Bay’s jingoistic disaster movie Armageddon, and was largely accused of overacting as Liv Tyler’s love interest. Then came Force of Nature opposite Sandra Bullock, Reindeer Games with Charlize Theron, the lover’s triangle of Pearl Harbor, and a failed first run at superhero glory in Daredevil. There were bright spots – among them Shakespeare in Love and Changing Lanes – but they were the exceptions. In 2003, his turn in one of the worst films ever made, Gigli, and the next year’s sentimental Jersey Girl, had many forgetting what they originally saw in the promising young actor. (Photo by © Columbia/courtesy Everett Collection)Though Affleck is now lauded as an award-winning filmmaker, his stretch of questionable heartthrob and action-hero film roles during the early aughts instilled the widely held perception that he was a terrible actor. Forbes declared him Hollywood s biggest disappointment; others said he should stay behind the camera for good. But lately, with acclaimed turns in films like The Way Back, Affleck is reminding critics and audiences of the promise he showed early in his career, and his singular ability to portray forlorn and damaged characters seeking redemption. For those who ve watched his career closely, though, there has always been great work. It s about time we reconsider Affleck’s acting ability and recognize him as one of his generation’s great performers. Following Daredevil and other public failures, it was another superhero role of sorts that showed us again what Affleck was capable of. In 2006, the actor sharply shifted gears when he played former Superman George Reeves in Allen Coulter’s tragic biopic Hollywoodland. Here, Affleck played an actor trapped by the limited perceptions of his talent – a subject which presumably felt near to Affleck at the time. Reeves comes to hate the fame Superman brought to him, and turns to wrestling in the vain hope of revitalizing his career. The movie closes with a visceral sequence in which Reeves commits suicide with a Luger pistol. We watch as Affleck despondently stares into the distance as a tear grips his cheek; upon a close-up, he slightly turns his head, and the anger and hollowness of the man play vividly in his eyes. Few actors evoke the catastrophe of the soul as well as Affleck does here.(Photo by ©Warner Bros. Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection)After the triumph of Gone Baby Gone, his first film as director, Affleck leaned into portraying miserably flawed men. In the taut political thriller State of Play, he’s a Congressman implicated in the death of his lover; in the exhilarating crime caper, The Town, which he also directed, his character severs himself from the love of his life after a botched robbery; in The Company Men, he explores corporate America’s apathy toward the middle-class worker. And though he plays the hero in the Oscar-winning Argo – a CIA specialist extracting American citizens from Iran during the hostage crisis – his character’s family life is fractured. Affleck s Tony Mendez loves his son, but so often misses the most important events in his life; when he tells Lester Siegel (Alan Arkin) he has a child, his voice cracks with regret. In these roles, Affleck rarely gets the girl, but he always claims the heartache. Affleck s most fantastically flawed and fascinating creation came in David Fincher’s unnerving thriller Gone Girl. An anti-romantic lead performance, Nick Dunne is neither suave nor appealing. Instead, the role turned the tables on everything studios wanted the actor to be during the late 1990s and early 2000s – America s heartthrob – by transforming him into the disturbing and philandering husband accused of murdering his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike). (Photo by Merrick Morton/TM and ©Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation. All rights reserved./Courtesy Everett Collection)While Pike rightfully earned a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her turn as the psychotic Amy, and the film was lauded for its skillful direction and shock twists, Gone Girl’s most memorable scene – and its iconic image – centers on a subtle acting moment from Affleck: The actor simply standing, feigning a smile while posing with the missing person’s poster of his wife. Dressed in a rumpled shirt and clearly exhausted, his half-hearted grin intimates both guilt and foolishness at once, a feeling that carries through his whole performance. When Nick goes on a talk show to apologize to Amy, hoping to coax her out of hiding through contrition, Affleck plays his remorse as perfectly canned, and when the blood-stained Amy returns home, his look of awestruck misery zings. And then, of course, came Batfleck. With Robert Pattinson now cast as Batman, there’s a keenness from some to forget Affleck’s caped crusader. Many fans are hoping Pattinson, following his psychologically violent roles in indie flicks like Good Time and The Lighthouse, will deliver some damaged goods and help them erase the memories of Affleck s Dark Knight and the movies in which he featured. But many fail to remember the promise the actor showed when first cast by Zack Snyder – and why he was, in many ways, so perfectly cast. (Photo by © Warner Bros. / Courtesy Everett Collection)The Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a haunted loner born from the tragic milieu of Gotham, encompassed many of what audiences had seen in Affleck’s prior career highlights. Hollywood’s onetime golden boy, driven by failure toward darker material, fit perfectly into the older and more jaded mold Snyder crafted. Moreover, Affleck’s past as a romantic leading man, though spotty in quality, informed the belief he could adeptly capture the billionaire playboy persona of Bruce Wayne. And he largely succeeded in the role, ultimately, bringing the hardened edges grief provides, though his performance languished under a flawed script. This year, Affleck channeled a career’s worth of demons and struggles into Jack Cunningham, the basketball coach at the center of Gavin O Connor’s Certified Fresh dark sports drama, The Way Back. Though Jack’s an alcoholic father, still reeling from the collapse of his marriage and the death of his adolescent son from cancer, he’s recruited by his former Catholic high school to coach a now-crestfallen team. The onetime basketball star, now a construction worker, reluctantly grapples with his addictions for a chance at redemption. (Photo by © Warner Bros. / courtesy Everett Collection)The role resonated with much of what we know about Affleck’s personal life, and it gave him great freedom, too. In Dawn of Justice, when he leaned into Wayne’s tragic past and infamously screamed “Martha,” he was lampooned; as Coach Cunningham, Affleck had the independence to sketch those shades of grief and regret differently. Whether attending a triggering birthday party for his son’s best friend, or later during his drunken spell through a quiet neighborhood, he heartbreakingly portrays the destructive depths of grief and addiction. Critics and audiences took notice: Slashfilm s Hoai-Tran Bui described Affleck’s performance as “tremendous” and “raw,” while Christy Lemire described his portrayal as “the best work” he had done. The Way Back has even garnered the actor some quiet Oscar buzz. The film s success is fitting considering Cunningham, a construction worker, is a mirror of what Affleck’s character in Good Will Hunting might have become after Will left: a working stiff punching the time clock of life without the steady guidance of his friend. By looking toward the past, in concert with his past triumphs, Affleck proves both then and now his generationally great talent. The Way Back is available to rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Google Play, and Amazon Prime.齐发国际电子游戏平台《英灵召唤师》是一款“二次元+TCG”的手游。,是一款画面新带有日系唯美风格以萌娘为主题的卡牌对战类休闲游戏。在游戏中玩家需要通过搜集各种角色的卡牌去完成对战任务。游戏固化了人物角色的特殊属性,常态必备技能搭配让玩家快速找寻心仪的卡牌,游戏的卡组都是自由构筑的。

0.93.9 7月喜迎oundation makes it sound like the show might be a bit less literary. According to their press materials, the show chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire, which suggests this series will follow the spirit of the novels more than the letter.It s also doubtful, given the scope and the 10-episode order (so far), that Foundation will cover all three books. It may not even cover all of the first one, especially if they incorporate elements of Asimov s prequel novels, 1988 s Prelude to Foundation and 1993 s Forward the Foundation. But with the credentials of the people involved, we re hopeful that Goyer and Apple will be able to pull it off.Who Are the Creatives on Foundation?(Photo by Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images)Goyer serves as the series showrunner. (Original co-writer and co-show runner John Friedman left the production in April of 2019, though it s not known if this was planned or unplanned). And while Goyer is best known as a screenwriter — most notably for Christopher Nolan s Batman movies, the Blade films, and both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — he s no stranger to TV. He was the co-creator, a producer, and a writer for the SyFy channel s Superman prequel Krypton, the co-creator and a writer for the WB s short-lived comic book adaptation Constantine, and is currently helping to develop The Sandman, a show based on author and producer Neil Gaiman s iconic comic book series.Joining Goyer in the show s credits are co-executive producers and writers Leigh Dana Jackson (Helix, 24: Legacy) and Victoria Morrow (Weeds, Rectify), co-producer Adam Banks (Altered Carbon, Luke Cage), and the aforementioned Robyn Asimov, who will serve as an executive producer.As for the writers, while Goyer will pen an as-yet-unknown number of episodes, he, Jackson, and Morrow will be joined by Marcus Gardley, who was the executive story editor for 10 episodes of The Chi, and a writer of four; Sarah Nolen (The Americans); and Saladin Ahmed, who is best known for writing the comic books Ms. Marvel and Miles Morales: Spider-Man. Isaac Asimov will also share writing credit on all 10 episodes, which is a neat trick given that he passed away in 1992.Where things get even more interesting is in the director s chair. Here, Foundation will feature the talents of Alex Graves (Lost in Space, Altered Carbon), Jennifer Phang (The Boys, Resident Alien), and Rupert Sanders (Ghost in the Shell, Snow White and the Huntsman). But the most interesting person who ll be yelling CUT! for Foundation — and twice no less — is Roxann Dawson, who has directed episodes of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, House of Cards, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but is best known to fans of epic sci-fi space operas as B Elanna Torres from Star Trek: Voyager a show she directed twice before doing the same for 10 episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise.Who s in the Cast of Foundation?(Photo by Apple TV+)Like the crew, many of the cast members also have experience with epic space stories. For the role of Hari Seldon, Goyer and company cast two-time Emmy nominee Harris, who s well versed in the ways of space and TV thanks to his role as Anderson Dawes in multiple episodes of The Expanse. Harris recently starred in HBO s Emmy-winning limited series Chernobyl, for which he received his second Emmy nomination; played King George VI in multiple episodes of The Crown; and had roles in the shows The Terror, Carnival Row, Mad Men (his first Emmy nomination), and Fringe.Foundation also stars Lee Pace, who plays Emperor Brother Day, and will undoubtedly draw from his experience playing Ronan the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. Pace also has experience with epics, and royalty, having played the Elven king Thranduil in The Hobbit movies, as well as TV experience from playing Joe MacMillan in Halt and Catch Fire. He is also Emmy nominated for his role as Ned on ABC fantasy series Pushing Daisies.Some of the casting of Foundation will change things up from the book. While the character of Eto Demerzel is male in the novels, the role in the show will instead be played by a female, Finnish actor Laura Birn. Birn is best known for the 2014 movie A Walk Among the Tombstones; though she s also no stranger to serialized entertainment, having played Elena in all eight episodes of Netflix s The Innocents.Alfred Enoch has been cast in an as-yet-unidentified role. Like many of his costars, Enoch also has experience with epics, having played Dean Thomas in the Harry Potter movies, and experience with TV, as Wes Gibbins in How to Get Away with Murder. So he s probably playing a space wizard who s in law school or something.The cast of Foundation also includes Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk, who is the eldest member of the royal family. Mann previously played Whispers in the Netflix show Sense8, though horror fans know him better as Ug, the interstellar bounty hunter in all four Critters movies. Joining him in the royal family as Brother Dawn is Cassian Bilton, a British actor whose previous credits include a handful of short films, including the BAFTA-nominated Shoal.Bilton is not the only relatively unknown actor in the Foundation cast, though. Gaal Dornick, a mathematician who becomes Seldon s biographer, will be played by Lou Llobell (pictured), who also appears in the upcoming sci-fi movie Voyagers, while the role of Salvor Hardin, who is the first mayor of Terminus City, will be played by Leah Harvey, who was previously seen in the wrestling movie Fighting with My Family.When Does Foundation Premiere?(Photo by Apple TV+)Like every other show in production these days, production on Foundation experienced delays related to COVID-19, coming to a complete halt in March 2020 before resuming in October. The cast and crew then moved to Malta in January of 2021 to film for a month, then to two separate locations the Canary Islands. Currently, the series is scheduled to debut on Apple TV+ on September 24, 2021, which means you still have plenty of time to read the 220-page original novel — or heck, the entire 660-page trilogy — and forget most of the plot twists before the show comes to your viewing screen.
Movies Leaving Netflix at the End of August 2020 The original Karate Kid trilogy, '90s classics, and Certified Fresh flicks are blasting off: Watch them while you still can! by RT Staff | August 25, 2020 | Comments
2018 was a big year at the box office – perhaps the biggest ever – and a big year on the Tomatometer, with the likes of Cobra Kai, Paddington 2, and more scoring 100%, and hundreds of movies and TV seasons going Certified Fresh. It was also a big year for movie and TV news – the Academy threatened to add a new category and Stan Lee passed, while scandal threw the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise into disarray and kicked Roseanne out of her own show. And it was a big year for movie and TV news-makers: Crazy Rich Asians, Black Panther, and more all made history. With an eye on the Tomatometer, as well as the headlines, the box office, the streaming wars, and the titles that captured people s imaginations and hearts, we vee rounded up the biggest and best moments in the year for film and TV. Check them out below, and let us know the big moments you think we ve missed in the comments.Sundance Kicks Off a Huge Year for First-Time Directors(Photo by © A24)It was a strong year for first-time directors, with Bo Burnham kicking things off at Sundance with the premiere of Eighth Grade. The at-times hilarious, at-all-times excruciatingly awkward story of eighth-grade outcast Kayla sits at 99% on the Tomatometer and star Elsie Fisher recently earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. Boots Riley’s bizarre, Kaufman-esque comedy Sorry To Bother You also premiered at Sundance, along with Blindspotting, directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada and co-written by Hamilton’s Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal; both films went on to win continued acclaim and accolades for their casts and filmmakers. Actors Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born) and Paul Dano (Wildlife) made impressive debuts, while Pitch Perfect writer Kay Cannon showed she’s as strong behind the camera as she is behind the laptop with the comedy Blockers. Meanwhile, two of the year’s most skillful suspense-drivers – horror hit Hereditary and missing-girl techno-thriller Searching – came to us via first-timers Ari Aster and Aneesh Chaganty, respectively, while Night Comes On (100% on the Tomatometer) marked the arrival of Jordan Spiro.It s “Wakanda Forever” at the Box Office(Photo by © Marvel Studios)In mid-to-late January, box office watchers began to notice that Black Panther was tracking well. Really, really well. They began to predict an million opening. And then a 0 million opening. By the week of its release, with online pre-sales soaring beyond expectations, some prognosticators were predicting a bigger opening than Thor: Ragnarok. And indeed, they were right. But BP opened even bigger than that, launching with a 2 million weekend – and 1.9 million across the full four-day President’s Day weekend – and going on to earn 0 million domestically, .347 billion globally, and become the ninth highest-grossing movie ever. It was huge. The film was also good: Black Panther sat at 100% on the Tomatometer for a solid stretch in the days before its release, leaving some to hope it might be the first “perfect” superhero movie. Alas, it would go on to land a handful of Rotten write-ups, but its eventual 97% Certified Fresh score still makes it the best reviewed superhero movie of all time. Eight months later, with the catchphrase “Wakanda Forever” firmly a part of pop culture and director Ryan Coogler signed on for a sequel, the film is generating serious Oscar buzz. “First superhero movie to be nominated for Best Picture”? We wouldn’t bet against this record-breaker.A Quiet Place is the best and biggest horror movie of the yearSouth By Southwest audiences have a reputation for being a little extra: they whoop and holler at screenings and occasionally bring a little too much inflated hype home with them from Austin. So you could have been forgiven for dismissing the “OMFG” reactions to A Quiet Place coming out of the festival. But the hype was real. John Krasinski’s horror film, hinging on that ingenious “don’t make a sound” conceit, was a game-changer: a terrifying no-holds-barred action-horror ride; the fourth highest grossing horror movie ever at the U.S. box office; and, at 95% and Certified Fresh, the best-reviewed horror film of the year. Naturally, Krasinski is busy writing the sequel, which early reports suggest could focus on a different group of survivors.“Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good…”Eight months later and we’re not over it Thanos s universe-halving snap. Bring on Endgame.Cobra Kai Certified Fresh at 100%YouTube began producing its own original scripted content in 2016, but it didn’t reach mainstream status until the launch of Karate Kid sequel series Cobra Kai — and its universal praise from critics — in May 2018. (That it was called “YouTube Red” until that same month, when it became the less-porny “YouTube Premium,” probably didn’t help.) Cobra Kai’s first season is Certified Fresh at an impressive 100% on the Tomatometer, putting the platform’s other series, including the cheeky comedy Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, director Doug Liman s Impulse (based on the Jumper book series), and the Tom Felton–starring sci-fi drama Origin on the critical map.The title s first season was only one of 12 TV seasons Certified Fresh at 100% in 2018 (of 79 overall), but its impact on the perception of YouTube as a serious scripted-series producer was huge.Netflix Becomes the Rom-Com KingThe resurgence of romantic comedies in 2018 is indisputable (see: Crazy Rich Asians), and while there are plenty of outside reasons why the genre is beginning to thrive again (a turbulent worldwide political atmosphere, an alternative to tentpole releases with sky-high budgets, etc.), the surge has also been helped in large part thanks to Netflix’s investment in it. The streaming service, in an attempt to beef up its own original film offerings, leaned in to the rom-com this year — to varying degrees of success. Its first breakout hit of 2018, The Kissing Booth, is Rotten at 13%, while summer sensation To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is Certified Fresh at 96%. Similarly, Kristen Bell’s Like Father is Rotten at 48% (though it s less a rom-com than a daughter-dad–com), at while the hit Set It Up (starring Lucy Liu, Taye Diggs, Zoey Deutsch, and Glen Powell) is Certified Fresh at 90%. Other Fresh 2018 rom-coms from Netflix to add to your queue: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Alex Strangelove, Happy Anniversary, Ibiza, and Sierra Burgess Is a Loser.Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Expanse, and More Fan Favorites Saved from CancellationIt didn’t take a mass-mailing of hot sauce or nuts to TV executives (see: early 00s canceled-too-soon series Roswell and Jericho) to save series in 2018 — just deeply passionate fan bases with Twitter accounts (and some advantageous behind-the-scenes business dealings). During TV’s annual May culling, Fox canceled fan-favorite comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons — and massive social media outcry followed. Mere hours later, NBC — whose studio, Universal Television, produces the series — announced it had picked up the show for season 6. Similarly, a month after Fox axed its comic book dramedy Lucifer, Netflix announced it had picked up the series for a fourth season. And Syfy’s cancellation of space drama The Expanse lasted only a few weeks, with Amazon founder, chairman, and CEO Jeff Bezos announcing at May’s International Space Development Conference that the series will return on Amazon Prime for season 4.Roseanne Fired, The Connors Is Born(Photo by ABC/Robert Trachtenberg)ABC’s decision to revive one of its biggest-ever sitcoms sounded, on the surface, like a no-brainer. Roseanne’s massive season 10 ratings seemingly reinforced that decision (it ended the 2017-2018 TV season as the No. 3 show in overall viewers and No. 3 in the advertisers’ most coveted 18-49 demographic). But the titular star’s history of racist statements raised a gigantic red flag for many in discussing the revival, though did not prevent the series from moving forward. It was a May tweet about former senior White House staffer Valerie Jarrett that proved to be the line for the Disney-owned company, which immediately canceled the series. Weeks later, it greenlit a Roseanne Barr–less spin-off, The Conners (Barr does not have any involvement in the new series, financial or otherwise) that debuted to solid, though not Roseanne-level, ratings.Mr. Rogers Heralds the Year of the Doc(Photo by Jim Judkis/© Focus Features)This was the biggest year for documentaries at the box office since 2004. Back then, the big driver was a single film, Michael Moore’s incendiary anti-Bush documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11; in 2018, the was shared among a large crop of critically-acclaimed biographical documentaries, the highest-earning of which was the Fred Rogers bio-doc, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, released in June. (That film was also one of the best-reviewed features of the year, currently sitting Certified Fresh on 99%.) Other big earners were RBG, the Ruth Bader Ginsberg documentary (94% on the Tomatometer); CNN Films’ Three Identical Strangers (96%); rock-climbing thriller Free Solo (98%); and Kevin Macdonald’ Whitney (88%), which dives into the life of late pop singer Whitney Houston and which made headlines for its shocking revelations of child abuse.James Gunn Out of Guardians FranchiseOne minute, writer-director James Gunn was Instagramming the cover of his just-finished Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 script; the next Disney was booting him from the project and throwing the future of the mega franchise into doubt. You will likely recall the reasons: A series of Gunn’s years-old inappropriate tweets resurfaced in July and, under pressure from various groups and in an effort to maintain that squeaky-clean Mouse House image, Disney and Marvel decided to cut ties. Guardians cast members came to Gunn’s defense, but it was not enough; fans are still none-the-wiser as to whether the project is moving forward, and if it is, whether Gunn’s script will be used. Marvel’s loss would ultimately be DC’s gain, with Gunn jumping on board Suicide Squad 2 as writer just a few months later, a move many fans applauded. If anyone can work magic on the story of a rag-tag bunch of shouldn’t-be-heroes, it’s Gunn.Crazy Rich Asians Has a Gold Run(Photo by © Warner Bros. Pictures)Writer Kevin Kwan and director Jon M. Chu turned down offers from Netflix to adapt Kwan’s books for the streaming service, saying they felt the movie had to be shown in theaters – they wanted Asian audiences to see themselves reflected on the big screen. The gamble paid off. Not only was Crazy Rich Asians — the first wide-release mainstream film with a largely Asian and Asian-American lead cast in 25 years – a landmark event for representation, it was a huge financial success for Warner Bros. In the lead-up to the movie’s release, the filmmakers and cast had been encouraging audiences to turn out and create a “gold open,” and the film topped the box office with .3 million over its first five days in early August. And then the fans kept coming; CRA was one of the leggiest movies of the year, making 4 million domestically. The movie also made instant stars of Awkwafina – who would go on to be just the second Asian-American woman to host SNL – as well as Henry Golding, whom audiences got a second helping of in Paul Feig’s A Simple Favor, and who has now been cast in Feig’s forthcoming Last Christmas and Guy Ritchie’s Toff Guys. Meanwhile, the movie’s star, Constance Wu, is up for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, and Michelle Yeoh is considered an outside chance for a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Oscars.The New Oscar Category That Wasn’tIn August, the Academy announced a number of big changes, including a shortened ceremony, the removal of a number of categories from the live broadcast, and, most controversially, the introduction of a new category that would honor excellence in popular film. The outcry was immediate and loud, with many shellacking the Academy for further ghettoizing popular filmmaking just as it seemed we were starting to see worthy blockbusters and genre movies, like last year’s Get Out, getting traction in top-of-the-line categories. It felt like a particularly poor move for this year, given that Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians are being seen as serious contenders for Best Film nominations. Eventually, the Academy saw the light, and quietly announced they would not be moving forward with the new category. Since then, the Academy had a super-smooth year, not having to deal with any more controversies whatsoever.Shirtless Jason Statham + Giant Shark = Huge Hit(Photo by © Warner Bros. Pictures)For whatever reason, the world was in the mood for a giant shark movie in 2018. The Meg, riding a wave of clever tongue-in-cheek marketing – the “Pleased to eat you” poster was our favorite – made 0 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing Chinese-American co-production ever. Producers behind the film have hinted that a sequel is in the works, and there are plans for a Meg-inspired theme park in China.Nic Cage Gets Wilder (Even Wilder Than Usual) in MandyThe Cage-aissance continued apace in 2018, with everyone’s favorite wild man kicking off the year as one half of a child-killing couple in Mom and Dad and following that up in September with his best performance since Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans in horror-flick­–slash-fever-dream, Mandy. The movie, which co-stars Andrea Riseborough, came out of Sundance with some well-deserved buzz and would go on to be Certified Fresh at 92%. It was Cage’s highest Tomatometer score since 1997’s Face/Off, until another film came along this December DC Universe Streaming Service LaunchesDC Comics launched its own streaming service with a big FU to Batman and the debut of its dark, violent action series Titans. The first season is Certified Fresh at 82%, and the series was renewed for a second season ahead of its debut. On the slate for 2019: live-action dramas Doom Patrol (introduced in an episode of Titans), Stargirl, and Swamp Thing, animated comedy Harley Quinn, and the return of animated hit Young Justice (Outsiders premieres January 4, 2019).Venom and Bohemian Rhapsody Divide Critics and Audiences, Conquer Box OfficeThose who sniggered at the Venom trailers – and yes, that includes a couple of us here at RT – might have to eat wind-swept turds come New Year’s Eve. That’s because the film, which many critics have called a total mess when it opened in early October, is now one of the biggest movies of the year, making 4.5 million worldwide (so far). It is also one of the most divisive movies of the year, with a Tomatometer of just 28% but an Audience Score of 85%. As we said in one recent article, we’re not picking sides – Venom was kind of a blast, thanks in no small part to the efforts and charm star Tom Hardy, and we’re as excited for any potential sequels as you are. Another film that split critics was Bohemian Rhapsody, which hovered in Rotten territory until around the time of its release in November, and remains just barely Fresh at 62%. Audiences however, have dubbed it a triumph, giving it an Audience Score of 90% (!) and helping the film make 7.1 million at the global box office so far.The Spectacularly Spooky Haunting of Hill HouseIn a TV landscape with nearly 500 scripted series airing in 2018, a seemingly low-profile horror drama series based on a 1959 novel isn’t necessarily the first natural candidate for one of the biggest breakout series of the year. But Netflix s tense, spooky take on Shirley Jackson’s Gothic horror novel The Haunting of Hill House from genre vet Mike Flanagan combined a top-notch ensemble cast and groundbreaking filmmaking techniques for a genuinely scary haunted-house tale.Netflix Axes Its Marvel Series(Photo by Sarah Shatz/Netflix)With Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, set to launch in 2019, the company has begun to streamline the platforms where its content is offered. That means the Marvel-Netflix partnership, which included Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and team-up miniseries The Defenders, is on its way out. While not initially announced as a limited event, The Defenders turned into a “miniseries,” and on successive Fridays in October, the streaming service canceled Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Daredevil followed about two months later. (By the way, while critics panned Iron Fist upon its debut, earning the first season a Rotten 19%, the second season saw a vast improvement, breaking a Tomatometer record for the biggest season-over-season bump ever at a nearly Fresh 57%. And both seasons of Luke Cage were Certified Fresh at 94% and 83% respectively.) The only two series that remain are the already-filmed third season of Jessica Jones and season 2 of Daredevil spin-off The Punisher, set to be released in 2019.He Just Wants To Take Another Look at You(Photo by © Warner Bros. Pictures)Anyone skeptical that Bradley Cooper was hiding serious directing chops or that Lady Gaga was a movie star in the making was likely converted into true believer when A Star Is Born opened in theaters in early October. After debuting at Venice and playing Toronto, the movie immediately jumped to the front of many awards pundits’ “most likely” lists, and is still heavily favored in the Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress categories. Star had box office legs, too, opening with a huge million, despite being up against Venom that first weekend, and eventually crossing the 0 million mark. But perhaps the biggest measure of the movie’s success is its level of meme-ification. We watched on here at Rotten Tomatoes HQ as Gaga stans @-ed us on Twitter with bizarre and hilarious GIFs showing Gaga with dancing Fresh tomatoes, while the internet did its work with the “Just wanna take another look at you” line, and that Gaga smile. It only takes one GIF-maker to believe in you, we guess.Halloween Rejuvenates Slasher GenreWhen Jamie Lee Curtis took the stage following the world premiere of Halloween at the Toronto Film Festival in September, she got a rousing standing ovation. It wasn’t just her typically awesome greeting – “Happy Halloween, motherf—kers!” she said, strutting onto the stage – nor was it the late-night delirium that follows a scary midnight screening (the audience was still amped). It was that the movie had delivered. Director David Gordon Green had created a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s original that was scary, funny (some would say too funny), and which ultimately drove a stupidly large kitchen knife through the heart of toxic masculinity, as wielded by three generations of tough-as-f k Strode scream queens. The movie would eventually be Certified Fresh, and open to nearly million. That was, Curtis pointed out in a viral tweet, the biggest ever opening for a horror movie with a female lead, the second biggest October opening ever, and the biggest opening ever for a movie with a lead over 55. No dou

While COVID-19 continues to impact the TV industry in big ways, talk show hosts try to keep giving us things to laugh about (including a brief comeback from Rosie O Donnell to help her fellow entertainers), Netflix gives us a new way to be socially less distant, and more in the week s top TV news.TOP STORYNetflix Party Makes It Possible to Have a Group Bingewatch (and Not Just a Virtual One)(Photo by Chris Haston/NBCU Photo Bank/NBCUniversal via Getty Images via Getty Images)Binge-watching episodes of The Office for the 37th time just got more fun. Thanks to a new Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party (available here), you can have movie nights and group TV viewing parties of your favorite Netflix programming.And not only does the extension allow you to watch programming at the same time on your computers, but Netflix Party also features a chat room, so you can quote Michael Scott’s wackiest words to each other, or debate whether or not “Scott’s Tots” is the worst Office episode of all time. We kid. There’s no debate. It is absolutely the worst Office episode of all time.Hopefully you stashed away plenty of snack fare, because COVID-19 social distancing just got the tiniest bit more bearable.Update: Netflix also announced that the company has created a 0 million emergency support fund for entertainment industry workers. Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement:The Covid-19 crisis is devastating for many industries, including the creative community. Almost all television and film production has now ceased globally leaving hundreds of thousands of crew and cast without jobs. These include electricians, carpenters, drivers, hair and makeup artists and more, many of whom are paid hourly wages and work on a project-to-project basis.This community has supported Netflix through the good times, and we want to help them through these hard times, especially while governments are still figuring out what economic support they will provide. So we’ve created a 0 million fund to help with hardship in the creative community.Most of the fund will go towards support for the hardest hit workers on our own productions around the world. We’re in the process of working out exactly what this means, production by production. This is in addition to the two weeks pay we’ve already committed to the crew and cast on productions we were forced to suspend last week.Beyond helping workers on our own productions, we also want to support the broader film and television industry. So million of the fund will go to third parties and non-profits providing emergency relief to out-of-work crew and cast in the countries where we have a large production base.Netflix will provide million each to the SAG-AFTRA Covid-19 Disaster Fund, the Motion Picture and Television Fund, and the Actors Fund Emergency Assistance in the U.S., and million between the AFC and Fondation des Artistes. Additional allocations worldwide will be announced next week.Lord of the Rings, The Witcher Among the Latest Coronavirus-Related Production HaltsAmazon Prime s The Lord of the Rings series was shut down March 16, according to a memo acquired by The New Zealand Herald. This is done in an environment where travel restrictions directed at the control of Covid-19 are issued daily by New Zealand and most other countries we are doing this to minimise stress on the resources and infrastructures around us by doing our part to reduce population density in our communities and daily activities, in efforts to help reduce the spread of the virus, the memo read in part.Netflix similarly shut down production on season 2 of The Witcher for two weeks, Deadline reported, noting that crew will continue to be paid during the hiatus. The show is filmed around 40 miles west of London at Arborfield Studios. Meanwhile, another Netflix production, The Crown was so near completion on season 4 that filming continued this week; though the production wrapped early, according to EW.Plus, that Friends reunion special that was going to be a highlight of HBO Max’s debut month in May might have to wait. THR.com reports the show, which will feature Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer getting together for an unscripted celebration of the 10-season sitcom, was scheduled to tape next week, but now could be pushed off for a May tape date, because of coronavirus concerns. HBO Max will be the streaming home for the series when it launches.In other coronavirus-related TV rescheduling news:American Idol suspended production and sent contestants home for now.

 Back to the Future Part IIIDirector Robert Zemeckis and screenwriter Bob Gale had a hell of a time trying to sell studios on their idea for a sci-fi comedy about a teen who accidentally travels 30 years back in time and plays matchmaker to his high school-aged parents. Fortunately for them and for the rest of us they were persistent, and they had a fan in Steven Spielberg, who agreed to produce the film, and more than 30 years after its release, Back to the Future is still hailed as one of the greatest movies of all time. The trilogy is full of iconic moments, memorable lines, and some of the most recognizable movie props ever, and, like many others on this list, it inspired a variety of offshoot merchandise and peripheral entertainment. That said, critics were a little lukewarm on the somewhat transitional feeling of Part II, and even though the first film was the highest-grossing movie of 1985, the two sequels didn t come close to making the same kind of money. The fans of the franchise, who consistently rated the trilogy high enough to earn it a fourth place ranking in Average Audience Score, are the ones who helped prop it up into sixth place overall, and honestly, that feels OK.4. Marvel Cinematic Universe(Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures/©Marvel Studios)Average Tomatometer Score/Rank: 84.7% (8th)Average Audience Score/Rank: 82.3% (8th)Average Domestic Box Office/Rank: 4,780,252 (9th)Films: Click for full list of filmsAbout that groundwork that Spider-Man laid In 2008, just one year after Sam Raimi s third and final Spider-Man film, Marvel Studios launched what would become an industry-changing initiative with its first self-financed film, Iron Man. Initially perceived as something of an odd choice, being that Iron Man wasn t considered one of Marvel Comics more recognizable heroes, the film earned rave reviews, particularly for Robert Downey Jr. s work in the title role, and kick-started what we now know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As the MCU cranked out a handful of seemingly unrelated solo films en route to a blockbuster showdown in 2012 s The Avengers, it reaffirmed RDJ s bankability, made global superstars out of then relatively unknown actors like Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans, and sent every studio scrambling to imitate the feat with a connected cinematic universe of their own. A dozen years and 23 films later, audiences are still hungry for more, but with several of the MCU s characters now either dead, essentially retired, or nearing the end of their contracts, it remains to be seen if Marvel can maintain the same high level of interest and quality for the next decade and change. In the meantime, while critical reception has fluctuated a bit across this juggernaut of a franchise, its Average Audience Score and Domestic Box Office both rank in the top 10, and there s good reason to think it ll keep delivering for the foreseeable future.3. Middle-earth(Photo by New Line courtesy Everett Collection)Average Tomatometer Score/Rank: 79.3% (13th)Average Audience Score/Rank: 86.3% (3rd)Average Domestic Box Office/Rank: 0,055,657.50 (6th)Films: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug, The Battle of the Five ArmiesPeter Jackson had a monumental task ahead of him when he set out to translate one of the most celebrated works of fantasy literature to the big screen, but nearly 20 years after the release of the first chapter, The Fellowship of the Ring, it s difficult to imagine anyone else doing justice to J.R.R. Tolkien s epic tale. The original Lord of the Rings trilogy took home 17 of the 30 Academy Award nominations it earned, with Return of the King winning in all 11 categories for which it was nominated an Oscar record. It was such a cultural phenomenon that fans clamored for Jackson to work his magic on an adaptation of Tolkien s precursor novel The Hobbit, which is something Jackson had wanted to do as early as 1995. After a bit of studio drama, a new trilogy emerged, and while it wasn t quite the critical darling that the Lord of the Rings films were it brought the franchise s Average Tomatometer ranking down to 13th place it still resonated with fans (3rd in Average Audience Score) and made a lot of money (6th in Domestic Box Office). Today, Jackson s films are seen as the definitive interpretation of Tolkien s novels, leading to a resurgence of interest in high fantasy and Tolkien s work in general, and they remain one of the most influential and beloved film series of all time.2. Indiana Jones(Photo by ©Paramount courtesy Everett Collection)Average Tomatometer Score/Rank: 86.25% (6th)Average Audience Score/Rank: 81.25% (9th)Average Domestic Box Office/Rank: 5,870,633 (3rd)Films: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal SkullHarrison Ford is the only actor to play central roles in more than one of the top 10 franchises on our list (unless you count Tom Holland in the MCU, which is debatable), but while he shared the spotlight with others in the Star Wars saga, he owns the screen as Indiana Jones. As with Star Wars, we can thank George Lucas fascination with the classic movie serials of the 1930s and 1940s for this adventure series about a cocky, handsome, swashbuckling archaeologist. This time, though, Lucas handed the directorial reins over to Steven Spielberg, and together, they breathed life into three of the most iconic action-adventures to come out of the 1980s. Like most of the other franchises on this list, the Indiana Jones movies led to massive merchandising opportunities and spawned new iterations of the character in other media, like books, television, and video games, before Ford, Lucas, and Spielberg reunited for another go in 2008 s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But the popularity and profitability of the films led to a number of similar franchises, from the updated Mummy movies starring Brendan Fraser to the Tomb Raider video game adaptations starring Angelina Jolie and the National Treasure movies starring Nicolas Cage, just to name a few. As for Indy himself, there s a fifth film on the books for 2022, and Disney CEO Bob Iger has said it won t be the end of the franchise. That sounds like good news all around for the rest of us.1. Toy Story(Photo by ©Buena Vista Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)Average Tomatometer Score/Rank: 98.75% (1st)Average Audience Score/Rank: 90.25% (1st)Average Domestic Box Office/Rank: 2,000,000 (4th)Films: Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3, Toy Story 4It might surprise some to see an animated series at the top of this list, but Toy Story is anything but your average, run-of-the-mill kiddie cartoon. As a fledgling animation studio, Pixar had already won an Oscar for its 1988 short film Tin Toy, about a small one-man-band toy attempting to escape from a destructive toddler. That film drew the interest of Disney, who approached director John Lasseter about expanding the idea into a feature film. The result, of course, was an absolute game-changer, as Toy Story was the first feature film to be wholly computer animated, ushering in a new era for the genre that would ultimately result in the addition of the Best Animated Feature Academy Award to be added in 2002. Since then, Toy Story has spawned three sequels, all garnering near universal acclaim the first two films are both Certified Fresh at 100% and inspired a whole generation of artists, animators, and storytellers to make the most of the medium. For its part, Pixar has remained a steadfast leader in the genre, picking up accolades left and right and continuously pushing the boundaries of its craft. But the Toy Story franchise, which ranked first in both Average Tomatometer and Average Audience Score while coming in fourth for Average Domestic Box Office, remains the studio s crowning achievement, and it is officially the Best Movie Franchise Ever.Top 10 Franchises by Category[All data accurate as of 6/30/20]Average Tomatometer ScoreToy Story (99%)How to Train Your Dragon (93.3%)Mad Max (90%)John Wick (88.3%)Ip Man (87.2%)Indiana Jones (86.3%)Kung Fu Panda (85%)MCU (84.7%)Evil Dead (82%)George Romero s Living Dead (81.3%)

(Photo by Anna Kooris courtesy of Sundance Institute)One of the most anticipated movies of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, partly because it’s the sophomore effort from Lemon director Janicza Bravo, but mostly because it’s based on a Twitter thread that went viral, Zola seems to live up to expectations as a clever adaptation filled with exceptional performances. The first reviews following the premiere are mostly positive, celebrating the appropriately disjointed and fleeting entertainment of this road trip comedy involving a stripper, a sex worker, her boyfriend, and her pimp through the wilds of Florida.Here’s what critics are saying about Zola:Does the movie feel like a Tweet adaptation?[It’s] as laugh-out-loud funny and nail-bitingly wild as Wells original Twitter thread.  Angie Han, MashableThe script retains the humor of the original thread, again framing an increasingly dark story with a light touch.  Benjamin Lee, GuardianOne of the greatest pleasures of the original series of tweets, which is preserved here, is the inherently humanist observation that everybody is a messy, dramatic bitch in their own way.  Jessica Kiang, The PlaylistZola often unfolds at the fragmented clip of the feed that inspired it. That sometimes means that it struggles to fit into the constraints of a linear story.  Eric Kohn, IndieWireAs Twitter is to great literature, Zola is to the cinematic masterpieces that have come before: It’s superficial and relatively thin on substance.  Peter Debruge, VarietyDoes it ever go deeper than that?Zola is a fascinating status update for our time. David Bax, Battleship PretensionZola is operating on a level more aesthetic and cerebral, using these quirks to tell a parallel story about the stories we tell about ourselves on the internet, inviting us to consider who s framing them, and how, and why, and to what end. Angie Han, MashableThe sound effects might be a little gimmicky, but there is something maybe profound about the way Zola features in the film. Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair[Bravo] and Harris never try to push Zola into some kind of big statement about Who We Are Today Like Twitter itself, it might not offer much substance, but someone who knows what she s doing can make it a hell of a fun diversion. Scott Renshaw, Salt Lake City Weekly(Photo by Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images)How is the movie s pacing?Bravo puts so much effort into keeping the rapid-fire pace in flux, while her small ensemble throw themselves into the unseemly hedonistic energy on display. Eric Kohn, IndieWireI had expected Zola to be a frenzy… but a lot of the film is muted, making so much of the sordid things that Zola encounters seem almost prosaic. Richard Lawson, Vanity FairZola suffers from some pacing issues, particularly in the second half as Bravo tries to strike a balance between the film’s shifting tones. Brent Hankins, The Lamplight ReviewAt a swift 90 minutes, the film has some pacing issues. Benjamin Lee, GuardianWhat is Zola reminiscent of?Zola lands somewhere on the glitter-neon spectrum between Spring Breakers and Hustlers – which is to say: it’s pretty much a blast. Jessica Kiang, The PlaylistIt’s not prurient Spring Breakers, nor flashy, righteous Hustlers. It’s more meditative than that. Richard Lawson, Vanity FairThe movie doesn’t have the clear-eyed smarts of a grifter fairy tale like Hustlers, much less the hypnotic power of a girls-gone-wild classic like Spring Breakers. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesSpring Breakers might seem like the obvious aesthetic comparison, though Bravo’s energetic style has more in common with early Guy Ritchie movies. Eric Kohn, IndieWireIt makes Hustlers look like a Disney movie. David Rooney, Hollywood Re

Ghcxuf This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Tenet, and Tom Cruise s Space Project.This WEEK S TOP STORYSONIC THE HEDGEHOG (AND PROBABLY TAILS, TOO) TO RETURN IN 2022(Photo by Paramount Pictures)We may have had to wait a few more months (from 11/15/2019 to 2/14/2020) for the character design to be redone on Sonic the Hedgehog (Fresh at 63%), but Paramount is apparently attempting to avoid too much of a wait for Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The studio has announced a release date of April 8, 2020 for the sequel, or just two years and two months after the first film, and that s even after they already factored in the various delays right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The sequel does not have a premise yet, but the ending of Sonic the Hedgehog teased both the debut of Tails the fox, but also the villainous return of Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik (now looking even more like his video game character). Director Jeff Fowler will return for the sequel, working from a screenplay by Pat Casey and Josh Miller, who also both worked on the first film. Ben Schwartz is also expected to return as the voice of Sonic, and he may also again be joined by James Marsden and Tika Sumpter (though neither is confirmed yet). Release dates are obviously changing all the time, but other movies scheduled within a month of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 include Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (3/25/2022), The Matrix 4 (4/1/2022), and Black Panther II (5/6/2022).Other Top Headlines1. PIXAR TRAVELS TO ITALY IN 2021 FOR THE SEA MONSTER ADVENTURE LUCA (Photo by Disney/Pixar)Movie studios are increasingly planting untitled films on the release calendar these days, especially when the title in question is a new property and not a sequel, prequel, or remake. So, we ve actually known for a while that Disney and Pixar were planning on releasing something next summer on June 18, 2021; we just didn t know anything else beyond that. Normally, Disney and Pixar might have made a big announcement at San Diego Comic-Con, but that, of course, ended up being replaced by last week s Comic-Con@Home, which had some big panels, but not as many as usual. Instead, we learned through other means (in this case, Collider) that Pixar s next movie after Soul (11/20/2020) will be a fantasy adventure set in Italy called Luca. We also have this fairly lengthy premise: Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface. Some writers are already comparing Luca to both Call Me By Your Name (thanks to the setting) and Guillermo del Toro s The Shape of Water.2. JORDAN PEELE TEAMS UP WITH ISSA RAE FOR SCI-FI HORROR SINKHOLE (Photo by Priscilla Grant, MJP/Everett Collection)Ever since his breakout success in 2017 with Get Out (Certified Fresh at 98%), Jordan Peele has worn several hats (director, producer, and host) on a variety of horror, thriller, or related genre movies and shows, including Us (Certified Fresh at  93%), CBS All Access s The Twilight Zone, HBO s upcoming series Lovecraft Country, and this fall s reboot of Candyman. We can now add another project to his upcoming filmography, as he will be producing a sci-fi horror film for Universal Pictures called Sinkhole, in which Issa Rae (The Lovebirds, HBO s Insecure) will star. The premise revolves around a strange pit that appears in the backyard of what otherwise seems like a perfect home, with the added information that the original short story started as a writers group project with the theme, I married a monster, and that the story will explore themes of female identity and perfection. 3. AMY ADAMS BIZARRE WERE-DOG DRAMA NIGHTBITCH (Photo by Jef Hernandez/Everett Collection)Plenty of werewolf movies have been made since the 1920s, and along the way, the concept has certainly veered into comedy, such as with Jon Landis An American Werewolf in London, Michael J. Fox s Teen Wolf, and, one could reasonably argue, with Disney s Shaggy D.A. franchise. Now, werewolves are frequently men, but Amy Adams is now attached to star in a film called Nightbitch which will team her up with the Annapurna production company, with which she has worked four times before (The Master, American Hustle, Her, and Vice). Nightbitch, which is not technically a werewolf movie, will star Adams as a former artist who is thrust into stay-at-home domesticity after the birth of her son, who becomes increasingly worried that she may be turning into a dog. (Some versions of this story suggest it is actually the baby that is turning into a dog, but the official premise of the source novel, which comes out next summer, is pretty clear.)4. CHRISTOPHER NOLAN S TENET CHANGES RELEASE STRATEGY AGAIN(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/©Warner Bros.)As the COVID-19 pandemic continues in the USA, movie theaters remain unsure about when they will be able to fully reopen. Last Friday, we heard that Warner Bros. was considering opening Tenet internationally first and then in the United States at a later point. That plan was confirmed on Monday when the studio released a press release that the film will be released in over 70 countries on August 26, 2020 before opening in the United States a week later, just in time for Labor Day weekend, but only in select cities. What s unclear is whether that Labor Day release will also then lead to a wider release for Tenet, or if it will end up adding something like a VOD release in lieu of a wide release (which may not be fully possible in September if not enough theaters are open in the USA by then). Of course, this also means that American movie fans will have to endure at least a week of possible social media spoilers during which the rest of the world understands exactly what Tenet is about.5. TOM CRUISE S SPACE PROJECT GETS 0 MILLION BUDGET AND MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE HELP (Photo by ©Universal Pictures)It probably was inevitable that someone would eventually want to make a big budget movie in outer space, but the when felt further away until recently. And if any movie star was going to attempt it (and do most of his own stunts), it was also probably obvious that it would be Tom Cruise. Just two months after we first found out about Cruise s plans to film a movie in outer space, the news broke this week that a deal has been made with Universal Pictures to fund the project with an atmospheric budget of over 0 million. It had already been known that the film will be directed by Doug Liman (who worked with Cruise on Edge of Tomorrow, Certified Fresh at 91%), but another name that has joined the production is Christopher McQuarrie, Tom Cruise s recent Mission: Impossible director (who s preparing to film movies #7 and #8 soon). McQuarrie will serve as one of the film s producers, and also contribute story ideas (a credit just shy of actually writing the screenplay). In related news, Top Gun: Maverick recently became just one of the many movies to have its 2020 release date delayed until next year (7/2/2021), which is almost two years after its original release date (July 12, 2019).6. BUZZFEED GETTING INTO MOVIES #14 WILL SURPRISE YOU!(Photo by Nicholas Kamm/Getty Images)In the 2000s, the popular news satire website The Onion announced that they would be getting into the movie business, but all we got was the little-seen 2008 project The Onion Movie. In that same spirit, Buzzfeed is now apparently hoping to have better success with a cinematic endeavor, as they are now partnering with Lionsgate for a theatrical film slate. Although we haven t gotten any specific examples of what a Buzzfeed movie might be exactly (documentary? drama? comedy? collection of cat videos?), the press release did say that the movies will be aimed at millennial and Gen Z audiences, so if you re over the age of 40 or so, these movies apparently won t be for you. Lionsgate and Buzzfeed expect to launch their first co-production sometime in 2021.7. COURTENEY COX WILL BE THERE FOR YOU (AGAIN), SCREAM 5 FANS(Photo by Dimension Films courtesy Everett Collection)When Neve Campbell was first announced in May to be in talks to return to the Scream franchise for Scream 5, this column predicted that we would soon hear about a few other returning cast members as well. That hunch was confirmed soon after with the news that David Arquette was returning as Deputy Dewey Riley, but it took another two months for Courteney Cox to be announced as returning as Gale Weathers. Scream 5 will be directed by the team of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (A.K.A. Radio Silence), who are currently best known for last summer s horror comedy Ready or Not (Certified Fresh at 88%). So far, no new cast members have been announced, but presumably, that will soon change, and at this point, it s all but expected that Neve Campbell s return will be officially announced in the near future.8. SETH ROGEN PRODUCING PROJECT ABOUT SECRET HOLLYWOOD HUSTLER (Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)It s not uncommon for directors, writers, or actors who first became famous for broad comedies to stretch out into more serious films. Recent examples of this include: Adam McKay (who went from Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy to The Big Short); Jay Roach (from Austin Powers to Recount and Game Change); and Peter Farrelly (from Dumb and Dumber to Green Book). Someone else who appears to be heading down a similar track is Seth Rogen, who is obviously best known for stoner comedies like Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, and This is the End. Rogen and his producing partner Evan Goldberg are partnering with director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name) for an adaptation of the 2017 documentary Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood (Certified Fresh at 86%). Guadagnino will direct the adaptation about the life of Scotty Bowers, a former U.S. Marine who had a second career during the golden age of Hollywood as a pimp and hustler for many within the secret world of the studios and actors, frequently using a Hollywood gas station as a cover location. Details of Scotty Bowers life also inspired the Netflix series Hollywood. It s not yet known who will star in this film, but one has to guess that two possible candidates might be Channing Tatum (a friend of Seth Rogen) or Armie Hammer (who starred in Guadagnino s Call Me By Your Name).9. FAMOUS ACTORS TO PERFORM INTO THEIR SMART PHONES FOR WITHIN/IN (Photo by NurPhoto/Getty Images)Before 2020, most of us had presumably gotten pretty used to slick filmmaking and TV production styles, and then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and many TV shows essentially became very well publicized Zoom calls. It was probably inevitable, therefore, that there would eventually be a movie that was filmed in that style. Although Michael Bay is also producing a pandemic thriller called Songbird that may also look like it was filmed by the actors, the movie that sounds closest to that theme is called Within/In. The project is described as a made-at-home anthology film revolving around themes of confinement and isolation. Within/In will feature several established actors, including Julianne Moore, Don Cheadle, Chris Cooper, Rebecca Hall, Sanaa Lathan, Emily Mortimer, Alessandro Nivola, Rosie Perez, and Debra Winger. Since it s an anthology film, we can expect there to be several individual stories, but since it s also made at home, most of the actors also won t appear onscreen together (at least not physically). Many of the actors (including Chris Cooper and Griffin Dunne) will also be taking directing credits as they re basically directing themselves. 😈😈

齐发国际电子游戏平台 Watch: Director Baz Luhrmann and production and costume designer Catherine Martin on the making of Moulin Rouge! above.In 2019, Rotten Tomatoes turns 21, and to mark the occasion we’re celebrating the 21 Most Memorable Moments from the movies over the last 21 years. In this special video series, we speak to the actors and filmmakers who made those moments happen, revealing behind-the-scenes details of how they came to be and diving deep into why they’ve stuck with us for so long. Once we’ve announced all 21, it will be up to you, the fans, to vote for which is the most memorable moment of all. In this episode of our ‘21 Most Memorable Moments’ series, director Baz Luhrmann and production and costume designer Catherine Martin break down how they created one of cinema s great entrances. VOTE FOR THIS MOMENT IN OUR 21 MOST MEMORABLE MOVIE MOMENTS POLLThe Movie: Moulin Rouge (2001) 76%Baz Luhrmann s breakout success, the 1992 comedy Strictly Ballroom, announced the Australian director as a bold new filmmaking talent with a wild, colorful, fast-moving style that was unlike anything anyone else was doing at the time. BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations followed, and buzz began to build for what Baz would do next. That next was Romeo + Juliet – a modern retelling that would spawn a hit soundtrack, make a star of Leonardo DiCaprio, and become the definitive version of the story for 90s and 2000s teens. Then came the big one: 2001 s Moulin Rouge!, the tale of a courtesan named Satine (Nicole Kidman) and a poet named Christian (Ewan McGregor) who meet and fall in love at Paris s Moulin Rouge, a cabaret club famous as the birthplace of the can-can. The Luhrmann-y twist was that their story was told as a musical filled with modern songs and mashups (and one beautiful original, Come What May ). The ambition was grand – to give new life to the movie musical – and Luhrmann was aided in his mission by a mammoth team of filmmakers and actors that included his wife and longtime collaborator Catherine Martin, the film s costume designer (with Angus Strathie) and production designer. Here, Luhrmann and Martin reveal how the film began to take shape, from the initial idea to building the club itself.“While I was in India had the incredible experience of experiencing a Bollywood movie… you could have drama, then high comedy – like, literal physical gags – then a musical number, then high drama again.”Baz Luhrmann: “I was debating what my next work should be. I was thinking, ‘Should I look at Shakespeare as if Shakespeare was going to make a movie, or should I look at my other great passion, which is a way of finding the musical?’ – which I loved as a child growing up in a very small country town where we had a cinema and we got very old movies. Is there a way of making the musical work at this time and at this place? At the same time, we were creating an opera of Benjamin Britten s A Midsummer Night s Dream. I went off to India to do that opera and while I was there I had the incredible experience of experiencing what would be called a Bollywood movie. I went into a cinema and there was maybe 2,500 people in that cinema. And what was astounding in the language and in the form was that you could have drama, a dramatic scene, then high comedy like, literal physical gags then a musical number, then high drama again. And it influenced me in a couple of ways.In one regard, it was Shakespearean, and on the other hand, you went, like, ‘Wow.’ This is audience participation in cinema. You are meant, as an audience, not to be looking at reality through a keyhole, but you are meant to participate in the storytelling. You re meant to boo and hiss and laugh and cry and sing along, but then you re also meant to be emotionally engaged and moved. I thought in a strange way this was completely and totally fresh. So I went off and I actually did the Shakespeare film first, and then coming a second time round, I went like, ‘It must be time to have a go at trying to make the musical work.’”Luhrmann was influenced by Bollywood films.

Courtesy: Everett Collection.)“There was a serious moment when I was thinking of setting Moulin Rouge! in Studio 54 in the ’70s.”Luhrmann: “I was looking at what world to set it in and there was a serious moment when I was thinking of setting Moulin Rouge! in Studio 54 in the ’70s. The character [of] Toulouse-Lautrec, I guess, would have been Andy Warhol, and there would have been a young creative writer/singer who comes to New York and gets involved in the underworld of 54. What I found was that it s too close to us You ve got to remember, at the time, the 1890s the can-can and all of that imagery in that world, you couldn t think of anything less cool or less hip. I remember CM [Catherine Martin] waking up in the middle of the night one night and saying to me, ‘Oh my God, Baz. We re doing a can-can movie. I mean, how could we possibly make that, you know, in any way aesthetically interesting?’ And I said, ‘Through a perspective.’We went to Paris. I went with Craig Pierce, my long-term co-writer, and my team, and then we lived it. Like all the movies, I live them. I literally lived the life of a 1890s Bohemian. And then reading, of course, lots of literature and research and, you know, Émile Zola s Nana and Lady of the Camellias and all that, and then starting to DNA the story. And then looking at, ‘OK. How do you decode a musical language that s going to kind of smash through the barrier that says musicals are dead?’ So that was the mission.”“I didn t know Elton John, so I rang him up and he said, ‘Oh that sounds like a fantastic idea, darling. Of course, we re going to do it.’”Luhrmann: “The device that what comes out of Christian is music that we know in our universe, started this idea of being able to be both set in a period but also take leaps of faith into the future and into our world. I m going to use this word, which was totally not around, you know, 18 years ago when I made this movie: the ‘mashup,’ slicing, montage, like mashing different things together. People weren t talking about mashups 20 years ago. So that s kind of where we were coming from in terms of finding a musical and visual and storytelling language. Publishing-wise, you technically couldn t have done it before Moulin Rouge!. The only way that Anton [Monsted, the film’s executive movie producer] and I managed to get that together with Craig and I writing, was I had to ring the actual artist. I mean, I didn t know Elton John, so I rang him up and he said, ‘Oh that sounds like a fantastic idea, darling. Of course, we re going to do it.’ And then I reached out to David Bowie and ended up working with David Bowie and Bono and all these icons and they all just thought it was a great, daring idea. If they hadn t have supported it, it would never have happened, but it did change this idea of publishing. That you could take all kinds of pieces of music and make something new out of it.”Luhrmann and Nicole Kidman. (Photo by © 20th Century Fox Film Corp. All rights reserved. Courtesy: Everett Collection.)“Heath Ledger was very much emerging and so was Jake [Gyllenhaal, for the role of Christian].”Luhrmann: “One of the most touching and beautiful stories – and it s been put out there before – was that actually at one point Heath Ledger was very much emerging and so was Jake [Gyllenhaal, for the role of Christian]. And I remember Heath and Jake, the idea of Christian being a much younger character…both of them could have played it in different ways. It just became clear that this idea of the age difference was probably putting a pressure on that wasn t exactly right. But the beautiful story is, and they often tell it, is that they became great friends and bonded over almost getting that role. I mean, when I look at [the footage I have of them] and I look at Heath and Jake – they both sing beautifully. Jake s got a beautiful baritone, I think, but Heath sang beautifully as well, and you know, that s just one of those moments that happens in the journey where you go, like, ‘Wow. Well that would have been different, too.’ But Ewan and Nicole were just perfectly matched for that role. It was very like, it s a perfect match in Casablanca, you know, between Bergman and Bogart.”Luhrmann says Kidman and McGregor were a perfect pairing. (Photo by © 20th Century Fox Film Corp. All rights reserved. Courtesy: Everett Collection.)“We actually marked out the whole of the Moulin Rouge using the stick that people use to do surveying and police tape.”Catherine Martin: “One of the first things we did was build a scale model of what we believed was our version of the Moulin Rouge and filled it with scale people to see how that number of people would feel.  (Now, we would do all of this in 3D and computer.) And as a result, we shrunk the size down, because it just was huge. Then we went in front of the show grounds in Sydney, at Moore Park [where] there’s a big open area of grass. We went out with sticks and tape and we actually marked out the whole of the Moulin Rouge, using the stick that people use to do surveying and police tape, and we marked out the entire size of it. And we got every single person we could find in the production offices to come and inhabit the space. From then we tweaked the size of it again. The idea of the entrances – like the spinning mirrors for the Diamond Dogs entrance – came from a lot of research about very classical theatrical entrances. And it seemed like a great way of getting a surprising and explosive and an unexpected way of getting our cast into the body of the Moulin Rouge. I think, on our biggest day, we had like 350.”The Moment: The Sparkling DiamondLuhrmann knew he wanted to give Satine a memorable movie entrance. So it is that she first appears perched on a swing above the main dance floor of the Moulin Rouge, singing a slowed-down first verse of Diamonds Are A Girl s Best Friend before the horn section kicks in and Satine begins swirling around the room like a glittering circus performer. It s little wonder both the Duke (Richard Roxburgh) and Christian are entranced. The audience was, too, and the scene, along with Satine s costume, have become defining signatures for the film. Kidman did the whole scene stunt-free, Luhrmann and Martin explain, and executed it like a pro. (She would break a rib wearing one particular corset during shooting, and take a nasty stumble in her pink diamond costume – she handled both incidents like a trooper says Martin.) Here, the duo breaks down the moment, how they achieved it, and the many films and styles they drew on to create Satine s first look, the Black Diamond. Kidman performed the scene without a stunt double. (Photo by © 20th Century Fox Film Corp. All rights reserved. Courtesy: Everett Collection.)“The very, very last thing you see is the eyes and the face under the hat.”Martin: “Baz always starts from the storytelling of the scene, how he wants to stage it. His first question is always, Where are the entrances and exits?’ He is very technical in that sense and very exigent. You know, you can t have a doorway in the middle of the set that no one ever uses. Because the audience is always just looking at the door, wondering when someone is going to come in. All these things sound obvious. But you d be surprised how unobvious they are when you re designing something.”Luhrmann: “Film s best entrances, great film entrances, you could do a reel on it. Whether it s Lawrence of Arabia and Omar Sharif coming out of the desert, or the entrance of Marlon Brando in The Godfather, the reveal. One of the technical things about the reveal [of Satine on the swing in Moulin Rouge!], is that you see ka-bang! and then you see the flitter, and then you see the silhouette of her, and then you see her body, and then you see the hat, and then the very, very last thing you see is the eyes and the face under the hat. So it s a very slow curtain reveal: Then it’s like, the sparkling diamond. It’s quite technical.”“Nicole was like, ‘No way’… She was 100% stunt-free on that moment.”Luhrmann: “I thought, wouldn t it be great if we put her in a circus trapeze and we did a trapeze number, but we ll have to have a stunt person. But Nicole being Nicole was like, ‘No way.’ So she trained with a circus person for a good, I would say, two weeks to do that number and when you see her swing around that s her. It s her all the way through that footage. She s on the trapeze, she s being swung around, she comes down, she falls into all those guys. So she was 100% stunt-free on that moment. It was just a process of skillful circus rigging and we made the swing as simple as possible, because we wanted it to be all about her. And we also wanted it to be light and flexible and movable and to be a real piece of circus equipment, so that it would be safe as possible. Basically, it was a real stunt leap that we just decorated. I think what s great about it is that it s almost not there. It s all about Nicole and Nicole s entrance and her spectacular physical confidence.”Martin drew inspiration from the fish-scale pattern on Marilyn Monroe s dress in Bus Stop. (Photo by © 20th Century Fox Film Corp./courtesy Everett Collection)“We wanted to maintain that 19th-century feeling of being corseted, but at the same time we wanted to call on a myriad of classical movie heroines, whether it s Marilyn Monroe or Rita Hayworth.”Martin: “Nicole s costume, when she first appears on the swing, is called the Black Diamond outfit. It was very interesting, all our discussion about how to find, and make, Nicole kind of this quintessential and classical heroine. We wanted to maintain that 19th-century feeling of being corseted, but at the same time we wanted to call on a myriad of classical movie heroines, whether it s Marilyn Monroe or Rita Hayworth – that kind of classic movie glamour of musical movie stars of the ’30s through the ’40s into the ’50s. So the corset shape for Moulin Rouge was adjusted a little bit to have a slightly ’50s kind of bustier feel. You see that in Nicole s outfits. We then used, from Marilyn Monroe s costume in Bus Stop, the fish scale pattern as a little nod to her. One of the big great motifs in the design of Moulin Rouge! is the use of the tail coats and top hats, and you’ll see in the costume itself, it actually has tails in the back, and she is wearing a miniature top hat that s perched on the side. It was a big fashion in the late 19th century. It was considered very sexy and kind of lush for women to wear thin trousers and male costumes. It also plays with the idea of the equestrian, the sexual fetish about women riding horses, obviously. It’s all those things melded to create the ultimate showgirl costume. The first time I saw Nicole in the Black Diamond outfit, she was Satine. I mean Nicole is marvelous to dress for obvious reasons, but she always transcends her costume. She makes Satine who Satine is. The outfit is never as good on a dress stand as it is on her body.”The Impact: The Musical Is RebornMoulin Rouge! was something of a sensation in its time. Praise was not unanimous – while the movie is Certified Fresh at 76%, there were vocal detractors who could not get on board with its feverishness nor its earnestness – but it struck a chord with audiences who d been yearning for an  audacious new musical. The movie made 0 million globally and earned eight Oscar nominations, with Martin winning two for Costume Design and Art Direction. The movie s soundtrack, which included the Lady Marmalade cover by Christina Aguilera, Mya, Lil Kim, P!nk, and Missy Elliott, went two times platinum in the U.S. and spawned a second volume. The movie s lasting impact would take some time to materialize, however. Lurhmann did, in fact, help reignite interest in the movie musical, and in the next two decades we would see successful new entrants in the genre like Chicago, Hairspray, Dreamgirls, The Greatest Showman, and La La Land. Moulin Rouge! itself remains beloved by a hardcore group of fans to this day, a passion that Broadway producers are banking on: a big-budget stage show of the movie opens at the Al Hirschfeld theater this month. For Luhrmann and Martin it s a joyful full-circle moment.“Maybe we re just getting a little bit far there. We might have to tone that down.”Luhrmann: “We did open in Cannes and that was a spectacular opening, that went terrific. But there was a time when we screen-tested it in a place called Simi Valley, CA, and nothing against Simi Valley, but at that stage we were even wilder up front about the kind of things that could happen in the Moulin Rouge. Now, I m not going to go into detail, but it was a little bit more in-your-face about the let s say “menu,” of erotic possibilities at the Moulin Rouge. So we had this kind of opening sequence in it, and for example, I think there might even have been Grace Jones ‘Slave to the Rhythm’ at some point in the opening sequence – we were putting it out in front of an audience and it was meant to be slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I m pretty sure three quarters of the audience just walked out before the first 10 minutes [were over]. We went like, ‘Maybe we re just getting a little bit far there. We might have to tone that down.’”Catherine Martin and Baz Luhrmann at the 2002 Academy Awards. Martin would win for Best Costume Design and Best Production Design.

It took Chicago and a lot of great musicals that then followed afterwards to keep the language going. And I did a celebration of the musical in fact I can t remember when but for the Oscars, with Hugh Jackman and Beyoncé and a whole cast of hundreds as a celebration that the musical was back. Well, that was years ago. When I started out in movies, Star Wars, science-fiction, that was the dominant genre, and the idea that the musical would be commercially successful, I mean, just nobody believed that – nobody– and I only did it because I loved them. But now, for example, Beauty and the Beast I think, did like a billion dollars, and then you go, ‘Wow. The musical really is back.’ Nobody even thinks about musicals being a challenge anymore. I mean, look at The Greatest Showman, look at La La Land. I m just thrilled that the musical is now not a subject of, ‘Should you or shouldn t you?’ The subject is: What do you do with it next? How can you keep challenging the form? How can you keep the interest in it?”“It was quite controversial when it first opened and it created a lot of polemic discussion about the cutting style, its content, the mashups.”Martin: “I m very proud to have been part of the journey. I m proud that it s part of the body of work that I ve been involved in. And I m thrilled that it has stood the test of the time and I still meet people to this day that are as enthusiastic about it as they were in the first days of it being shown. In fact, the enthusiasm has kind of grown. And it was quite controversial when it first opened, and it created a lot of polemic discussion about the cutting style, its content, the mashups, all these things. And what s fantastic is that it truly has continued to capture people s imaginations. And it s viewed more fondly now probably than when it first opened. The affection that the audience holds for the title, I think, is extraordinary. [When I saw the new musical] there was every sort of person in the audience and every age group. There were like five standing ovations. Alex Timbers [who directed the musical] has done an amazing job. It s just great to see young fresh talent reinterpret something and make it relevant again to such a broad population. I mean, there s nothing to be said apart from the audience can t be wrong. You just cannot believe how the audience connects to the show. It s mind blowing.”The stage at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in New York City, where the Moulin Rouge! musical opens in July. (Photo by Walter McBride/Getty Images)“It s like some child that I guess I conceived and was born and has grown up, and now it s run away and fallen in love with an audience, and occasionally it drops by and says, ‘Hi Dad.’”Lurhmann: “I think to myself, ‘Well, 20 years later, there s a live stage musical version now heading to Broadway.’ I m not doing that – I mean, I had something to do with selecting the young creative team and the new creative team, and they re not just reproducing the movie, they re doing radical interpretations of it. So I think to myself, ‘It s got a life of its own and it continues.’ And you know, when we did it, its impact on fashion and on music, the idea of the musical mashup, that elephant love medley, where they all sing on top of the elephant and all the different love songs are all mashed together… For it to still be around 20 years later, it s like some child that I guess I conceived and was born and has grown up, and now it s like run away and fallen in love with an audience, and occasionally it drops by and says, ‘Hi Dad.’ And I go, ‘How you going?’ It’s got a life of it s own. It really has.”Moulin Rouge! was released June 1, 2001. Buy or rent it at FandangoNOW.

Best-Reviewed TV Dramas 2018It s hard to stand out in such a crowded field packed with top-tier TV series, but YouTube Premium made a major splash with its highest-profile original scripted series to date: the Karate Kid sequel series Cobra Kai. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka return to their roles from the film franchise as older Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence reignite their rivalry — and join forces to win a coveted Golden Tomato.The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2018. Scores might change over time.« Previous Category Next Category » (Photo by © Warner Bros. )Space Jam: A New Legacy is no Jurassic World, but never underestimate the appeal of a film that has become a generational security blanket. Twenty-five years after the release of the original Space Jam movie, the sequel has topped the box office and given some hope to a family box office market struggling to bring kids ineligible for vaccinations back to the theaters. (Not to mention that other added barrier: the convenience of family films like Space Jam: A New Legacy being available to stream at home.) This week was a more than solid opening for A New Legacy, but is it just another front-loaded event picture that will leave its studio wishing for more?King of the Crop: A New Legacy Hopes to Go Strong For All Four Quarters After Blistering Opening First, let’s go to the charts. Space Jam: A New Legacy opened in first this weekend with .7 million. That is the fifth best opening of the year – just ahead of WB’s Godzilla vs. Kong’s .6 million, if the estimates hold (and GvK had a two-day head start). That is also the best family-oriented opening of 2021, surpassing even Cruella’s four-day Memorial Day opening of .5 million. LeBron James fans may even point out that it is better than the .5 million start that Michael Jordan’s Space Jam kicked off with back in 1996. Though with inflation that was about a .6 million opening and the movie went on to make more than 6 million. (At the time of its release, that was the fifth best opening of 1996, but the movie dropped to seventh in subsequent weeks when Star Trek: First Contact and the live-action 101 Dalmatians opened bigger.)GOAT debate aside, there was not a lot of chatter that Space Jam was going to dethrone Black Widow in its second weekend after a record-breaking pandemic opening. And yet here we are. But long term is the question now, with watchers wondering whether A New Legacy will join the exclusive company of 0 million films. So far it has taken at least a million opening to achieve the ranks of 0 million. By next week we will have three films in that bracket: A Quiet Place Part II, F9, and Black Widow. Godzilla vs. Kong is still a bit of an anomaly in that it had very little competition; it was in the top 5 for six weeks and the top 10 for 10 weeks, and it still stands at just 0.5 million.(Photo by ©2021 Disney Enterprises)The good news for Jam is that family films, while not breaking the bank, have been pretty consistent in bringing in audiences post-opening weekend. Raya and the Last Dragon had a disappointing .5 million start back in March, but is now up to over million (or 6.42 times its opening). Cruella and Peter Rabbit 2 were at 3.82x and 3.83x their openings entering this weekend and The Boss Baby: Family Business is approaching getting over the 3x hump. Cruella’s number, though a far cry from being a success against is budget, is interesting given its availability on Disney+ via Premier Access. The Boss Baby sequel may be a better gauge for A New Legacy, given it is also available as part of a streaming subscription (Peacock) with no extra cost. As of this weekend the film is at a 2.76 multiplier, but also opened to just a bit more than half of A New Legacy’s start. Can this be the second Warner Bros./HBO Max title to reach 0 million – after Godzilla vs. Kong? A new generation will tell.The Top 10 and Beyond: Black Widow Has Big Second-Weekend Drop, But Still Aims for 0 MillionMarvel’s Black Widow reached one high peak already during the pandemic box office, which means it had the furthest to fall too. Its 67.2% drop from its opening of million down to .3 million this weekend was the third-highest drop of the year for a wide release after Mortal Kombat fell 73.2% and Demon Slayer fell 69% in the same weekend. The positives still outweigh the setback, though, as the film managed to gross over 5 million in its first full week and will eventually be passing both F9 and A Quiet Place Part II to become the highest-grossing film (domestically) of the pandemic so far.But is a 0 million total now in jeopardy? The film has fallen behind the pace of Ant-Man and the Wasp already, which had 3 million after 10 days with a million second weekend – it finished with 6 million. Black Widow is at 2 million and could actually become the first July release to have over 0 million in its first 10 days and not reach the 0 million milestone. Disney also chose not to report its Premier Access numbers this week.(Photo by ©Universal Pictures)Checking in on the films that Widow is chasing for the top spot, we have F9 making .6 million this weekend, driving its total to 4.8 million after 24 days of release. Last week, we put the film in line with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which had 0.5 million in the bank after an .9 million fourth weekend. Somewhere around that film’s total haul of 2 million still looks right and F9 continues to lead the way internationally with over 1 million to date. A Quiet Place Part II just finished a seven-week stay in the top 5 and is still holding onto a narrow lead over F9 with 5 million. In many ways this is the truest success story of the pandemic so far. An exclusive theatrical run from Memorial Day weekend through last weekend and a consistent audience that is going to drive it to over 0 million: This is the film most deserving of the “theaters are back” title.The other sequel unleashed in theaters this week, Escape Room: Tournament of Champions, grossed just .8 million this weekend. That is down nearly million from the .2 million the first film did when it became a modest hit in January 2019, finishing with million. The critical consensus on the Escape Room sequel is not so far off from the original, with a Tomatometer of 42% compared to the first film s 51%. It s worth noting that franchise horror has been going lower and lower in terms of box office pull this summer since A Quiet Place Part II opened to .5 million. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It did .1 million the week after Quiet Place opened, then The Forever Purge started with .5 million a month later. Lest we not forget Spiral starting with just .7 million in mid-May. The third Conjuring film was the only one of the bunch not exclusive to theaters upon opening. An original horror film, M. Night Shyamalan s Old, will test the audience’s thirst this upcoming week and the genre could reclaim the number 1 slot.(Photo by © NEON)Opening in 927 theaters was the acclaimed but controversial documentary Roadrunner about Anthony Bourdain, which took in .9 million or about as much as Apollo 11 opened to in just 120 theaters in 2019. In only 552 theaters is Pig, with Nicolas Cage as a truffle hunter searching for his stolen companion. It scrounged up 5,000 for a ,712 per-screen-average compared to Roadrunner’s ,000. A24’s Zola is out of the top 10, but is up to .2 million with another 0,000 this weekend.On the Vine: M. Night Shyamalan Returns To Battle Henry Golding in Action ModeNext week, M. Night Shyamalan turns the Fountain of Youth – or its complete opposite – into the Beach in his latest thriller, Old. Its challenger for the week is the latest in the G.I. Joe series, an origin story for Snake Eyes with Henry Golding stepping into the role. It could make for an interesting box office battle, one that is rife with potential for both major surprise and crushing disappointment.Full List of Box Office Results: July 16-18, 2021

(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures, ©2020 Disney/Pixar)For some, December 25th movie releases have traditionally offered an escape from uncomfortable family time while providing theater employees a chance to make that sweet holiday pay. Most of us won t be heading to cineplexes on Christmas Day this year, though, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the widespread business closures associated with it. Like a lot of things in 2020, it s an unprecedented situation, and movie lovers looking for something to pass the time will instead likely turn to HBO Max s Wonder Woman 1984 or Disney+ s Soul to fill that gap. All of this got us thinking about the movies of Christmas Past, and we thought it might be both fun and enlightening to look back at every film ever released on December 25th and try to figure out if one rises above all the rest.One might understandably assume the list would be littered with holiday classics, but since they re typically released earlier than, you know, Christmas Day, we ended up with a hodgepodge of just about anything you could imagine. Considering they include titles as diverse as Magnum Force, Tombstone, An American Werewolf in Paris, and that most celebrated of yuletide standards, 47 Ronin, it s clear that there isn t any rhyme or reason to Christmas Day releases beyond Let s cross our fingers and hope this makes a lot of money. (Photo by Frank Connor/©Universal Pictures)Before we jump in, though, we need to clarify a few things about the process. First, our data set includes films that received wide releases on December 25th and have Tomatometers, Audience Scores, and reliable box office numbers. Regarding the latter, we had to stick to domestic box office earnings due to reliability issues with global market totals. Unfortunately, this meant older films like There Was a Crooked Man and Friday Foster failed to make the cut due to incomplete or insufficient data. Once we collected the relevant information, we ranked all the movies by Tomatometer, Audience Score, and Domestic Box Office (adjusted for inflation), added up their ranking numbers, and arranged the results in descending order so that the film with the lowest rank total would take the top spot. We know; it s a lot to digest.With the logistics out of the way, let’s get to why you’re here. After compiling all the statistics and ranking all 124 movies we looked at, we were able to narrow the list down to a Top 10. Will the top spot go to a bloody revisionist Western, an all-timer heist flick, or a stylish take on a legendary sleuth? Check out the full list below, along with each film s rank in our three data categories and a little bit of context, to find out which one is the Best Movie Released on December 25th!10. Tombstone (1993) 50 Points(Photo by ©Buena Vista Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 74% (21st)Audience Score (Rank): 94% (4th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 5 million (25th)While we have no evidence of this, it’s safe to assume that many adults would’ve been O.K. to receive tickets from Santa to go watch Tombstone when it was released on December 25, 1993. The thought of watching legendary lawman Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell) go to war against an outlaw gang of red-sashed murderers, led by Powers Boothe and Michael Biehn, is simply too epic to pass up. Not only was Tombstone a hit in 1993, but it’s grown in stature since then as its memorable mustachioed characters, epic gun fights, and iconic lines ( I’m your Huckleberry ) have become more and more popular. It also doesn’t hurt that the cast also includes – deep breath – Val Kilmer, Bill Paxton, Sam Elliott, Billy Zane, Michael Rooker, Charlton Heston, Stephen Lang, Thomas Haden Church, Billy Bob Thornton, and Dana Delaney, and they re all excellent. Tombstone is a rollicking good time, and despite some behind-the-scenes friction and director swaps, it s still a fan favorite that boasts an outstanding 94% Audience Score.It’s tough to single out the best moment, as the movie features a plethora of memorable scenes. Whether it’s Wyatt Earp’s takedown of a bully (Billy Bob Thornton in a fun cameo) or Doc Holliday s “I’m your Huckleberry” right before he puts one in Johnny Ringo s forehead, Tombstone has a deep bench of epic moments and characters, which is why it’s on our list.9. Sherlock Holmes (2009) 49 Points (Tie)(Photo by Alex Bailey/©Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 69% (25th)Audience Score (Rank): 77% (20th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 0 million (4th)Riding high off the success of 2008’s Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. stepped into the well-worn shoes of another famous brilliant person, Sherlock Holmes. The end result was an intriguing modern-day update of the character created by Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887. Rather than simply using his brain, Holmes uses his brawn as well, engaging in underground fist fights that showcase his six-pack abs and uncanny ability to anticipate his foe s moves, which allows him to exert maximum pain on his bare-knuckle boxing opponent (is that cheating?).The Guy Ritchie-directed film about Sherlock’s hunt for an aristocratic serial killer would go on to collect 4 million worldwide and spawn a sequel two years later, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, which also cleared the 0 million mark at the global box office.Fans and critics alike were fairly impressed with the performances by A-listers Downey, Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, and Mark Strong, as well as the stylized directing of Ritchie, which breathed new life into an old character. We re even scheduled to get a third entry in the franchise in December of 2021.9. Magnum Force (1973) 49 Points (Tie)(Photo by Everett Collection)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 72% (23rd)Audience Score (Rank): 77% (20th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 1 million (6th)As the second entry in the five-film Dirty Harry franchise, Magnum Force had the luxury of trading on the blockbuster success of its predecessor, but it also carried the expectations of the popular film that featured San Francisco Police Department Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) asking people if they felt lucky. Focusing on Harry s hunt for corrupt cops who take the law into their own hands, Magnum Force features explosions, murder, blood, profanity, and more explosions – you know, typical holiday movie stuff – which thrilled 1973 audiences who were looking for all of those things. Director Ted Post, who also worked with Eastwood on the well-received 1968 Western Hang ‘em High, knew what he was doing (making an action sequel), and there is no better evidence of that than in the opening credits: the cast and crew list is played over Harry’s .44 Magnum gun, which he then points towards the screen and shoots (think American James Bond) in a bonkers breaking of the fourth wall that tells the audience immediately what they re in for.7. Broadcast News (1987) 48 Points(Photo by ©20th Century Fox Film Corp.)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 98% (2nd)Audience Score (Rank): 79% (18th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 6 million (28th)Written and directed by James L. Brooks, the workplace comedy Broadcast News was nominated for seven Academy Awards and is considered to be one of the greatest movies ever about journalism. Holly Hunter, William Hurt, and Albert Brooks all received Oscar nominations for their lively performances, and it would be tough to find a more likable and well-written comedy about three people who love/hate making television together. Hunter famously joined the project shortly before production started, and she’s so good you’d think Brooks wrote the role just for her. Also, if you’ve never watched Broadcast News, go ahead and check out Aaron s (Albert Brooks) sweating scene; it’s an uncomfortable moment that features an excellent reporter absolutely bombing on camera, and Brooks plays it to perfection. Glancing at the reviews, you’ll see the phrases “uproariously funny,” “warm and heartfelt,” and “enormously entertaining” pop up time after time, and for good reason. Broadcast News gave audiences a lot to cheer for on December 25, 1987.6. The Aviator (2004) 47 Points(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 86% (11th)Audience Score (Rank): 79% (18th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 7 million (18th)Directed by Martin Scorsese, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett (who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar), and Kate Beckinsale, among others, The Aviator focuses on the early life of director/aviator/entrepreneur Howard Hughes and his legendary antics. Much like Hughes, The Aviator is larger than life as Scorsese loads it with glamour, plane crashes, and excellent visual effects that blend seamlessly into the period setting. The Aviator was the second (of the now five) collaborations between DiCaprio and Scorsese, and it netted DiCaprio his first Best Actor Academy Award nomination (he was previously nominated for Best Supporting Actor for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape); it also happens to be the first of three – yes, three – appearances on this list by Leonardo DiCaprio. The 0 million-budgeted drama won five Oscars (of a total 11 nominations) and still holds up beautifully, as the work of editor Thelma Schoomaker and cinematographer Robert Richardson give the 170-minute biopic an epic feel.5. Little Women (2019) 42 Points(Photo by Sony Pictures)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 95% (5th)Audience Score (Rank): 92% (6th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 8 million (31st)Powered by Greta Gerwig’s Academy Award-nominated script and direction, the million-budgeted Little Women pulled in 6 million worldwide and was met with near universal praise. The feat is all the more impressive (and not altogether unexpected, since Gerwig loves the novel) considering Louisa May Alcott’s iconic story about sisters growing up in Massachusetts during the civil war has been adapted for the screen multiple times, dating all the way back to 1917. What makes this adaptation stand out among the rest is the way Gerwig includes a nonlinear storyline and a different ending to offer audiences something fresh and unexpected. Also, bringing back her Lady Bird star Saoirise Ronan to play the pivotal role of Jo March was a smart idea, as the two work wonderfully together, and Ronan received Academy Award nominations for both films. Plus, Gerwig didn t stop with Ronan; she and producer Amy Pascal also landed the immense talents of Meryl Streep, Florence Pugh (who received a Best Supporting Actress nomination), Emma Watson, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, and a host of other incredible actors, lending the film the kind of A-list shimmer you d expect to see in a prestige picture.4. To Kill A Mockingbird (1962) 30 Points(Photo by Everett Collection)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 92% (7th)Audience Score (Rank): 92% (6th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 8 million (17th)Since its release in 1960, Harper Lee s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird has been an American institution that has sold over 40 million copies and been discussed and re-evaluated in classrooms across the country. Two years after its publication, director Robert Mulligan brought To Kill a Mockingbird to the big screen, and it was a smash hit that won three Academy Awards and eventually earned the 25th spot on the American Film Institute’s Top 100 Films list. Anchored by Gregory Peck’s Oscar-winning performance and Horton Foote’s faithful screenplay, Mockingbird tells the story of Atticus Finch (Peck), a lawyer in the depression-era South defending a Black man named Tom Robinson (Brock Peters) who has been put on trial for an undeserved rape conviction.Putting aside the important cultural discussion that continues to this day, To Kill a Mockingbird is an example of a book adaptation done right. Mulligan and Foote knew they had excellent source material to work from, so they stuck to it (mostly), and with the help of Harper Lee presented a faithful adaptation that struck a chord with audiences who saw the movie as a gift when it opened on Christmas Day of 1962.3. Django Unchained (2012) 28 Points(Photo by Andrew Cooper/©Weinstein Company)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 87% (10th)Audience Score (Rank): 91% (7th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 1 million (9th)Between Four Rooms, Jackie Brown, and The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino sure loves releasing movies on December 25, but his biggest Christmas Day hit came from Django Unchained, a super R-rated revisionist Western featuring a final gunfight that leaves a Mississippi plantation estate flooded with blood. The movie pulled in a whopping million its opening day (Catch Me If You Can only pulled in million) and ended up earning 1 million domestic, winning Academy Awards for Tarantino (Best Original Screenplay) and Christoph Waltz (who won his second Best Supporting Actor Oscar after earning his first for another Tarantino collaboration, Inglourious Basterds).Django Unchained tells the story of a freed slave named Django (Jamie Foxx) who teams up with an eccentric German bounty hunter named Dr. King Shultz (Waltz) in exchange for Shultz s help freeing Django’s wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the vile clutches of plantation owner Calvin Candy (Leonardo DiCaprio, making his second appearance on this list). Normally, hard R-rated exploitation films with 165-minute running times wouldn’t be nominated for five Academy Awards (and win two). Yet under Tarantino’s supervision, Django delighted audiences around the world and provided Christmas counterprogramming with silver-tongued devils, flesh-ripping torture, and Leo DiCaprio monologuing about skulls.2. Catch Me If You Can (2002) 15 Points(Photo by ©DreamWorks courtesy Everett Collection)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 96% (4th)Audience Score (Rank): 89% (9th)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 7 million (2nd)It wasn’t a hard sell to get audiences into theaters to watch Catch Me If You Can in 2002. Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio (and that makes three!), Catch Me If You Can is a rollicking film about Frank W. Abagnale Jr. (DiCaprio), a likable con man being chased around the world by Carl Hanratty (Hanks), a likable FBI agent who really wants to, well, catch him. During the globe-trotting caper, we also get to spend time with the very likable Frank Abigaile Sr., played by Christopher Walken, whose performance was so warm and welcoming he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.We’re not trying to be reductive about how likable the movie is, either. The expertise of Spielberg, the skill of his cast, and the Oscar-nominated score by John Williams make this 141-minute film fly by faster than a Pan Am airliner. Its appeal to people of all ages can’t be argued because it’s the rare film to receive nominations from the AARP, MTV, and Teen Choice Awards, which essentially makes it the Tom Hanks of movies.1. The Sting (1973) 10 Points(Photo by Universal Pictures)Tomatometer Score (Rank): 94% (6th)Audience Score (Rank): 95% (3rd)Domestic Box Office (Rank): 5 million (1st)Looking to build off the blockbuster success of 1969 s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which grossed 1 million domestically and won four Academy Awards, director George Roy Hill and stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman reteamed for The Sting. With an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra in place, The Sting once again showcased Redford and Newman’s unbeatable chemistry, playing lovable criminals who plan on swindling money from a shifty character played by Robert Shaw in 1930s Chicago (and hopefully avoid a freeze-framed death via a barrage of bullets). The Sting might be one of the most enjoyable films to ever to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards (it won a total of 7 Oscars from its 11 nominations). It also boasts an 5 million domestic box office haul, which would make almost any Marvel film jealous, and it s currently the 21st highest domestic grossing film of all time. If you haven’t watched The Sting, do yourself a favor and check it out, because the A-list star power, the beautiful Oscar-winning costumes, and the charisma of Redford and Newman together are undeniable.On an Apple device?
