ers. The pandemic matters. While we can probably expect another strongly-worded “I told you so” from the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) this week, the numbers do not lie. Streaming or not, since the end of June, when F9 opened, only two films have grossed more than 2.5 times its opening weekend: The Boss Baby: Family Business (3.42x), which was also streaming for free on Peacock, and The Forever Purge (3.47x), which was exclusively in theaters. Here is a breakdown of the rest.THEATER EXCLUSIVEF9 (2.43 / 7 weeks)Old (2.27 / 3 weeks)Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (1.94 / 3 weeks)Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2.51 / 4 weeks)The Green Knight (1.77 / 2 weeks)Stillwater (1.92 / 2 weeks)DISNEY PREMIER ACCESSBlack Widow (2.16 / 5 weeks)Jungle Cruise (1.86 / 2 weeks)HBO MAX (SINCE GODZILLA VS. KONG)Mortal Kombat (1.81)Those Who Wish Me Dead (2.59)The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2.70)In the Heights (2.58)Space Jam: A New Legacy (2.08 / 4 weeks)But let’s not let the HBO Max decision off the hook either. Repeat business seems to be at a stand still until we get a true all-clear on COVID and Delta, and streaming only doubles down on that. So the opening weekend is more crucial than ever before. The Suicide Squad is just the seventh film during this time to start with over million, joining HBO Max compatriots Godzilla vs. Kong and Space Jam: A New Legacy. The former stretched its legs through a still-wide open marketplace while vaccine hope was at its peak; the latter dropped like a stone and may end up with the worst multiple for a family film this year.We could just drop all the variables and statistics and know that in our hearts, Gunn’s film goes nowhere south of million in normal times. And that is as conservative as it gets. The top “R”-rated opening in August is still Straight Outta Compton, with .2 million, so it s hard to even suggest that a high-profile DC film whose almost universally-maligned “PG-13” effort is the highest opening weekend ever in August with 3.68 million wouldn t make million or more. Not when both Deadpools opened to over 5 million, Joker to over million, and Logan with .4 million.The only thing we know for sure is that this year, in our current circumstances, The Suicide Squad will not be joining the 0 million club and the odds are very much in favor that nothing from the rest of Warner Brothers lineup for 2021 will be invited in either.The Top Ten And Beyond: Jungle Cruise Sailing Towards 0 Million Last week’s no. 1 film is showing some potential to eventually join the 0 million club. Jungle Cruise fell 55% to .7 million this weekend. In this environment that actually constitutes a victory given that it is the lowest drop for a no. 1 film in its second weekend since Spiral fell 47.5% from a meager start of .7 million. That puts Jungle’s 10-day toll at million, which is ahead of Godzilla vs. Kong’s .05 million at 10 days, though with that film’s Wednesday opening it only had four weekend days to accumulate that total compared to Jungle’s six. Nevertheless, it is still a better second weekend than GvK’s .88 million, so we’ll give Jungle Cruise a puncher’s chance of breaking that ceiling.M. Night Shyamalan’s Old fell back just a single spot for the third straight week. It is right in line with The Forever Purge’s third weekend of .1 million. Overall, it is still ahead of that film’s pace by almost million, so look for Old’s final tally to be in the range of million, just getting over Lady in the Water’s total and avoiding being the lowest-grossing film of Shyamalan’s post-Sixth Sense career. Black Widow dropped to fourth place with million, which is the third-best fifth weekend this year behind A Quiet Place Part II (.19 million) and F9 (.82 million). Still, it did pass F9 this week and now certainly has a lock to claim the crown of summer champion, not to mention fairly decent odds to compete for the highest-grossing film of the year, with possibly No Time to Die and Spider-Man: No Way Home as its biggest challengers.(Photo by © A24)Amongst last weekend’s adult entries, Stillwater dropped 45% to .86 million and stands total at million. It looks like Focus Features, which has put every one of its 13 films into theaters since Kajillionaire last September, is going to have its highest-grossing film of the pandemic – but just its second to pass million and one which is unlikely to hit million. The Green Knight is just A24’s third theatrical release during this time and their numbers have actually gone up. From Oscar nominee Minari (.1 million) to Zola (.1 million) and now to David Lowery’s film (the first in the company s history to start in third place), which has earned million so far.On The Vine: A Background Player and the Queen of SoulThings get a little more crowded in theaters next week. Delayed multiple times since last year, audiences can finally see Ryan Reynolds as a video game character trying to escape in Free Guy (which critics are digging). More folks are trying to rob Stephen Lang’s abusive blind guy in Don’t Breathe 2, and Jennifer Hudson takes on the role of Aretha Franklin in the biopic, Respect. All three films will be exclusive to theaters.Full List of Box Office Results: August 6-8, 2021

7.26.5 5月喜迎anything I had read It was a period piece, but it felt very modern and had a very modern sense of thinking,” Steinfeld told Rotten Tomatoes recently in New York City. “To play this literary icon felt like an opportunity that I couldn t pass up.” (Photo by Apple TV+)Steinfeld s Emily has another intimate relationship with a guy named Death, whose smokey coolness is personified by rapper and singer Wiz Khalifa. Smith revealed that, in the series, Emily comes to have a more mature relationship with death when she loses someone close to her. In the beginning she is fantasizing that death will come and take her away from this life that s driving her crazy. In the end, she lived into her old age, so death didn t come for a long time, the series creator noted of the poet, who died at age 55. But we wanted whoever played Death to be kind of larger than life and to bring a sense of just incredible playfulness and wild coolness to the role, and I think Wiz was just the dream of who would do that. And then as soon as he read the script, he just really connected with the humor and the just the vibe of the show, and it was kind of amazing to me how easily he just slipped in to the whole thing. (Photo by Apple TV+)Considering she’s playing a young women who didn’t find literary fame until after her death, Steinfeld also relished the opportunity to explore Dickinson in a way that hadn’t been done before — to give voice to the young woman s thoughts and to act out the dark, fantastical elements of her poems in a way that’s not entirely expected. “I fortunately and unfortunately knew very, very little [about her] before this project. I loved that I could do my deep dive into her with the little facts that are known that are out there, but we got to dig even deeper and basically tell this story of what we think the inside of her mind might look like or feel like or sound like,” the one-time Oscar nominee said. (Photo by public domain image)“The whole fun of making this show was taking this person that had this unbelievable imagination, Steinfeld continued. I mean, you could make an entire series off of one poem, and we had all of these poems and it was so great to pull from that and from her imagination and sort of combine it with ours.”Smith was reading a biography of the poet when inspiration hit. I was so struck by, I guess, the ironies of her life and the fact that this woman was so passionate and fierce in writing almost 2,000 of the greatest, strangest poems ever written, but practically none of them were ever seen or appreciated or published while she lived, the series creator said. In our millennial era of everyone seeking attention for everything they do. There s something very inspiring in that story of Emily working in secret. (Photo by Apple TV+)More than just the story of a brilliant artist, the series specifically explores the limitations Dickinson would have encountered in the 1850s due to her gender and presents this as the main reason she was only taken seriously as a master poet posthumously. The series also relates that she was expected to marry and become a dutiful housewife, social norms that Emily of the series refuses. Gender parity — in everything from the pay gap to #MeToo and Time’s Up — is a conversation that continues today, particularly in creative fields and entertainment. Steinfeld could relate to Dickinson’s circumstances. “I think that there are so many themes in this show that are wildly similar to events that we go through today in life, especially women,” she said. “But I do think that this is a character who fought against every constraint. And I do find that as a young woman today, we re constantly fighting to be heard and understood. We have come a very long way and I m very thankful for that, but I think the show will sort of open a lot of people s eyes to the reality of what we re still dealing with.”(Photo by Apple TV+)These themes also appealed to 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Jane Krakowski, who here plays Emily’s domineering, by-the-book mother (also named Emily). “It had such parallels to today s young modern women, and that really surprised me,” she told Rotten Tomatoes, but for her role, she was the enforcer of such limiting expectations. “I think the parents represent the times, the world that we were living in, that patriarchal world.” Krakowski recounted how playing a stern-but-dutiful housewife herself isn’t exactly a glass-slipper fit. Her Mrs. Dickinson practically lives in the kitchen, an arena in which she’s not a natural. “First of all, this part was a real stretch for me because I can t cook anything in a kitchen,” Krakowski joked. “She is known as the greatest homemaker of Amherst, in all of New England. My friends who know me very well are like, ‘We can t believe 90 percent of your scenes are in a kitchen.’” Fortunately, she was up for the challenge, not only spending most of her time in the kitchen, but even getting down and dirty in the house work.“We did it so real. We actually were plucking those chickens…. It s really hard to get it off your fingers…. You weren t just a housemaid [back then], you weren t just dusting; you were going out and killing dinner and then bringing it inside. (Photo by Apple TV+)Dickinson seems primed for the Instagram-savvy generation, but more than a history lesson, Steinfeld hopes that it empowers viewers in the way it did for her while making it. “I feel like I have this newfound fearlessness that I always knew was inside of me,” she said. “After playing this character, I feel like there s nothing wrong with saying what s on your mind and speaking your truth. I hope that young girls can see the show and feel that sense of fearlessness and bravery and wit and beauty that comes with doing what makes you feel good.”Dickinson season 1 is now available on Apple TV+.Like this?

Watch: Kevin Feige on the making of The Avengers 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, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige details the creation of one of the MCU s most iconic moments.VOTE FOR THIS MOMENT IN OUR 21 MOST MEMORABLE MOVIE MOMENTS POLLThe Movie: Marvel's the Avengers (2012) 91%When Marvel Studios kicked off the MCU with Iron Man, success was not a guarantee. Audiences didn’t know the character, and Robert Downey Jr. was not the superstar he is today. And yet lightning struck. It would strike again and again for the studio, but never as spectacularly – at least until the past two years – as it did in 2012’s The Avengers, the mega successful Marvel superhero team-up written and directed by Buffy creator Joss Whedon. Audiences got to see characters they had started to love (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow) unite with a new version of the Hulk/Bruce Banner as well as a guy with an arrow, to square off against Loki, god of mischief, brother of Thor, and man on a Tesseract mission. The film was in many ways as much of a gamble as Iron Man: Disney and Marvel Studios spent a reported 0 million on it, and the filmmakers had the challenge of balancing multiple storylines, generating real chemistry between multiple A-listers, and meeting colossal expectations. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says his own expectations were exceeded.(Photo by Zade Rosenthal, © Walt Disney/courtesy Everett Collection)“The big danger of the first Avengers was just getting overwhelmed with action.” Early on we realized that the role of the filmmaker on our films is to bring a tonality — Jon Favreau, amazing job! — [to] bring a unique tonality and be able to maintain and ride that tone over the course of production and through post production. To bring the characters to life, to make them realistic, grounded. And that we have amazing artists and technicians who can help with the scale, that can help with as big a canvas as it is. What the filmmakers need to do is not get lost in all of that and to focus on the great character work. And the big danger of the first Avengers was just getting overwhelmed with action. So many superheroes, so much spectacle, so many special effects. And we knew there would be plenty of that. But the most intere
With a second straight Certified Fresh season now under way, The Boys once again contends that superheroes aren’t always that super. And if you just can’t get enough of this foul-mouthed, gory, action-comedy that tackles some darker themes, this list has got you covered. From Hannibal Lecter to Hannibal Smith and a few ass-kicking characters in between, your next few binge sessions are gonna be a bloody good time.The first four episodes of The Boys season 2 are now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Subsequent episodes will be released weekly.
You’ve spoken about your family’s military background. Over the years, you’ve played characters who’ve served. You also have a knack of situating yourself in wars from different time periods and still add a contemporary element to it. What’s the process of getting into the military mindset for wars of different periods?Jonathan: That s a great question. And thanks for watching all my s . There is a difference, and that difference primarily is what those characters see, that the opposition is different.For [Corporal Henry Woodson in 2017’s Hostiles], his opposition looked very much like him; the people were in bondage like his people had been in bondage. That war is different. The conqueri
bg大游登陆 (Photo by Xenon)Of the legion of comedic characters penned – and in many cases also played – by the late Mexican entertainment wizard Roberto Gómez Bolaños, better known as “Chespirito,” his most widely beloved are those who feature in El Chavo del Ocho, an iconic pillar of Latino pop culture.First aired in the early 1970s on Televisa, the Mexican media empire behind all of Chespirito’s shows and which later distributed them internationally, the sitcom rapidly achieved stratospheric popularity across Latin America; at the height of its success it reached an average of 350 million viewers per episode. Long in syndication in many countries, including the United States via Univision’s channels, the show continues to enjoy a vast multigenerational fanbase half a century later. Its impact among Latinos in the U.S. is such that in 2016 the city of Los Angeles declared September 8 as “El Chavo del Ocho Day.”Why is the series and its creator so peerlessly cherished among Latinos? With El Chavo del Ocho, Chespirito gifted us a story that communicates across ages, income levels, and even borders – all via the unifying power of hilarity.Dressed in worn-out khaki pants, a striped shirt, suspenders, and a tartan hat with earflaps, the title character of El Chavo del Ocho, El Chavo, is a young and poor orphan whom the neighbors assume lives in a barrel in the courtyard of a working-class apartment complex, or “vecindad.” As with all the child roles in the show, El Chavo is played by an adult, Chespirito himself, who leans into the character’s kindheartedness and mischievousness.There’s an underlying sadness to El Chavo’s circumstances and history of abandonment, which Chespirito doesn’t entirely shy away from (there are touching moments throughout the series’ numerous episodes), but it is infused with humor, much of it drawn from the character’s interaction with the neighbors who come to tacitly adopt him. Part of the show’s brilliance lies in the creation of these supporting personalities with whom Chespirito populates El Chavo’s world. Each of them was sharply drawn and had their own catchphrases that have become ingrained in the Mexican and Latin American vernacular. Over the years, the cast became almost inextricable from their parts.Stamps made to commemorate Bolaños s characters, El Chavo and Chapulin Colorado. (Photo by SUSANA GONZALEZ/AFP via Getty Images)There’s La Chilindrina (María Antonieta de las Nieves), a freckled and astute girl who knows how to manipulate her father Don Ramón (Ramón Valdés), a grumpy middle-aged and out-of-work scoundrel; Quico (Carlos Villagrán), a spoiled brat whose big cheeks impede his speech; his uptight and hair-rollers–wearing mother Doña Florinda (Florinda Meza); and her love interest El Profesor Jirafales (Rubén Aguirre), an elementary school teacher whose last name alludes to his giraffe-like lankiness.With its endearing relationships and absurdist shenanigans, El Chavo del Ocho amused audiences across the socioeconomic strata. However, it was particularly relatable to those of us of with low-income upbringings. We saw Quico getting a slew of wonderful toys for Christmas, while La Chilindrina had a single doll and El Chavo spent the holiday empty-handed. We then cheered as our hero took every opportunity he could to get his hands on food, especially if it was a ham sandwich (torta de jamón), because he didn’t know when his next meal would be.While the social classes of the characters, and the nuanced differences of circumstances between them, are made evident and form part of the mechanics of the story, El Chavo and his struggling neighbors had a sense of pride. In fact, a lot of the gags come from these individuals not allowing themselves to be undermined or humiliated by those with more resources, like Doña Florinda. She doesn t mince words when it comes to her disdain for the others and advises Quico to “not hang out with the riffraff ” – or as she would say it, “la chusma.”Although the show’s
