欧宝体育官网登录入口采用百度引擎9（Baidu 9）So far, 2020 has been unpredictable, as movie studios and the film industry at large scramble to respond to an ever-changing global crisis. In early March, it was announced that the release date of the latest James Bond film (and Daniel Craig s final outing in the role), No Time to Die, was being postponed from April to November, and it was only a matter of time before others followed suit. Sure enough, a whole slew of films have now announced release date changes, and not all of them have pinned down exactly when they plan to open. Most recently, Walt Disney Studios pulled two of its 20th Century Studios releases from their December dates: Kenneth Branagh s Agatha Christie adaptation Death on the Nile and the video game meta-comedy Free Guy, starring Ryan Reynolds.Read on for the full list of films that have postponed their opening weekends in 2020, and be sure to check back for updates as they are announced.

The Snoopy Show: Season 1 (2021) (Apple TV+) Debuted: February 5Why We Couldn t Wait: Right on time for the 70th anniversary of the comic strip, The Snoopy Show brings back the titular beagle, as well as the entire Peanuts gang for three new adventures. The whole gang s here, from Woodstock, to Schroeder and his tiny piano. The show seems to mirror the animation style of the classic Bill Melendez–Lee Mendelson cartoons, which instantly makes this a must-watch.DOTA: Dragon s Blood (Netflix)Debuts: March 25Why We Can t Wait: A show based on an insanely popular video game franchise, DOTA is already an exciting prospect, especially when focusing on the high fantasy aspect of the game. Add in the animation studio behind The Legend of Korra and you have show you can t miss. The series will follow the story of popular character Davion, a Dragon Knight who gets involved in a story larger than himself that includes princesses and dragons. Netflix has had a good track record with fantasy animation, thanks to the success of both Blood of Zeus and Castlevania, so it should be an exciting time for fans of both high fantasy and video games to check out this animated adaptation.Yasuke (Netflix)Debuts: April 29Why We Can t Wait: Based on the fascinating story of Yasuke, a real man who became the first Black samurai and fought alongside a feudal lord in 16th century Japan. The show comes from LeSean Thomas and stars Lakeith Stanfield as the titular Yasuke. The logline for the six-episode series reads: In a war-torn feudal Japan filled with mechs and magic, the greatest ronin never known, Yasuke, struggles to maintain a peaceful existence after a past life of violence. But when a local village becomes the center of social upheaval between warring daimyo, Yasuke must take up his sword and transport a mysterious child who is the target of dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords. The promise of a Japan of magic and mechs means this will be more than just a period drama. The studio behind the last season of Attack on Titan is in charge of this show, which has one of the coolest concepts we ve heard for this year, and a kickass lead voice actor. If you re a fan of either Samurai Champloo or Afro Samurai, this should be right up your alley.Star Wars: The Bad Batch (Disney+)Debuts: May 4Why We Can t Wait: Introduced in the excellent last season of The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch is a unique squad of clones that look straight out of an ’80s action movie, the most badass soldiers this side of Coruscant. But they face a bit of a problem — the war is over, clones are being decommissioned, and the Jedi are gone. The action looks stunning, the transition-to-the-Empire setting is fascinating and full of potential, and the trailer is already promising lots of connections to The Mandalorian and the future of Star Wars. While we wait for more Baby Yoda, you might want to keep an eye out for The Bad Batch.Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. (Hulu)Debuts: May 23Why We Can t Wait: Co-created by Patton Oswalt, this animated show will center around the hilarious day-to-day life of Marvel supervillain M.O.D.O.K. The show seems like Marvel s answer to Robot Chicken, with stop-motion animation being used to tell very R-rated jokes about the Marvel universe. The first tease showcased a handheld camera style that brings to mind The Office, and it s been teased that the show will be able to pull characters from the X-Men comics, making this an intriguing new experience for Marvel fans.Monsters At Work (Disney+)(Photo by Disney+)Debuts: July 2Why We Can t Wait: We ve seen what happened before the events of Monsters, Inc., but what about what happens after? What happens when a society of monsters built on the idea of scaring kids changes to instead entertain kids and make them laugh? And how does Mike Wazowski get famous enough to have fans of his own? Monsters At Work aims to answer these questions with the story of a new worker (Tylor Tuskmon, voiced by Ben Feldman) at the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team who dreams of becoming a jokester like Mike and Sulley. Many of the original voice actors are back, but what we really want to know is, where is Boo?Rugrats (Nickelodeon)Why We Can t Wait: The original Rugrats helped make Nickelodeon a powerhouse in children s animation back in the ’90s, thanks to its hilarious characters, progressive views on gender roles, and sharp commentary on adult life viewed from the eyes of toddlers. A reboot has been in the works since 2018, with a new promo featuring the new character designs releasing last year. The logline for the revival reads: One of Nickelodeon’s all-time biggest hits returns with new adventures following Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie and Angelica as they explore the world and beyond from their pint-sized and wildly imaginative point-of-view. Marvel s What If? (Disney+)Why We Can t Wait: What if Peggy Carter had been infused with the super-serum instead of Steve Rogers? What if T challa had become Star-Lord? What if the Winter Soldier had to fight a bunch of zombified Avengers? After more than 20 films, we sort of know how the Marvel universe works, which means it s time to shake things up! Marvel s What If? promises to give fans wildly different stories with the characters we know and love, bringing back many castmembers and using animation to tell stories that would be difficult to tell in live-action. While we wait for Phase 4 to hit theaters, this show should get our collective imagination fired up.Godzilla: Singular Point (Netflix)Why We Can t Wait: It seems Netflix is going all-out on a new anime MonsterVerse, with a recently announced Skull Island anime joining the upcoming Godzilla: Singular Point. This show boasts an impressive team behind it, with the studios behind the visually stunning Beastars and the global sensation My Hero Academia joining forces for a hand-drawn/CG animated hybrid following a group of scientists facing down tons of monsters. If that wasn t enough, the trailer teased the return of classic kaiju monsters like Rodan and Gabara, and also the giant mech and savior of humanity, Jet Jaguar from the 1973 film Godzilla vs. Megalon.The Way of the Househusband (Netflix)Why We Can t Wait: Stop us if you ve heard this one before: A deadly yakuza who is used to torture and kill without remorse, a man so renowned they call him The Immortal Dragon, decides to walk away from his life of crime and become the best househusband around. That s the premise behind Netflix s upcoming anime comedy The Way of the Househusband, a show about a former yakuza boss whose entire life is devoted to supporting his wife and taking care of domestic tasks, while frequently running into former rivals and associates.Unicorn: Warriors Eternal (HBO Max and Cartoon Network)(Photo by Cartoon Network/HBO Max)Why We Can t Wait: Genndy Tartakovsky is one of the most exciting voices working in animation today. Whether it s with Dexter s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, or Sym-Bionic Titan, he s always pushing the boundaries of what TV animation can do. After going full R-rating with his prehistoric epic, Primal, Tartakovsky is returning to kids action animation with Unicorn: Warriors Eternal. The show follows a team of ancient teenage heroes who need to protect the world from supernatural forces. Tartakovsky is a master when it comes to action animation, and he knows when to blur the line between kid-friendly content and darker, more adult content. A show about monsters, dark magic, and ancient warriors seems like a perfect fit for Tartakovsky.Maya and the Three (Netflix)(Photo by Netflix)Why We Can t Wait: High fantasy and mythology-heavy adventures are always at least interesting, and there is a criminally low number of Mesoamerican-inspired shows out there, instantly making Maya and the Three a show worth keeping an eye out. Created by The Book of Life s Jorge R. Gutierrez, the show is the epic tale of a warrior princess embarking on a quest to recruit legendary warriors and save the world of both men and gods. Mesoamerican mythology is full of potential for epic storytelling, so to see a show take advantage of it and involve warrior princesses and gods certainly peaks our interest.The Cuphead Show (Netflix)(Photo by Netflix)Why We Can t Wait: Do you like Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Do you enjoy old-timey animation and tons of references to Max Fleischer cartoons? Well, we do, so we cannot wait to watch The Cuphead Show. Based on the highly successful and critically acclaimed video game Cuphead, this animated show follows the misadventures of two brothers across a surreal and cartoonish world full of dangers and villains. In terms of pure aesthetics, this is promising to be one of the most unique TV shows of 2021, and if it s anything like the video game, the story is going to get wild.Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness (Netflix)(Photo by Netflix)Why We Can t Wait: The Resident Evil franchise is absolutely massive, and it s kind of insane we hadn t got a TV show until now (but now we re getting 2 of them, and one is animated! The show is taking place after the events of the fourth game and it brings back fan favorites Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy for a new fight against zombies. Plot details are very scarce, but if you ve played a Resident Evil game before, you have some idea of how this will go, there will be tons of scares, thrilling action, and probably a rocket launcher used to kill the final boss — just how we like it.Blade Runner: Black Lotus (Crunchyroll and Adult Swim)(Photo by Adult Swim)Why We Can t Wait: Produced by anime legend and Cowboy Bebop creator, Shinichiro Watanabe, Blade Runner: Black Lotus is a brand new anime set in the Blade Runner cyberpunk universe, set to feature some prominent characters from the franchise. Even if we don t know much about the plot of the show, this is an exciting concept. After all, Blade Runner inspired tons of classic works of anime, from Akira, to Ghost in the Shell, and even Cowboy Bebop, so to bring the franchise to the medium it influenced the most seems like a no-brainer. The colorful visuals as well as the epic and complex sci-fi concepts of the original film seem perfectly built for the animation medium, which is limited only by your imagination.Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai (HBO Max)(Photo by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)Why We Can t Wait: First of all, this animated prequel to Gremlins is written by Tze Chun, who worked on the last couple of seasons of Gotham, another prequel to a popular franchise, and that show was absolutely bonkers. Though we haven t seen much for Secrets of the Mogwai, we do know that the show will be set in 1920s Shanghai and tell the story of how the old man from Gremlins met a young mogwai called Gizmo. There will be a chase for a legendary treasure, and the promise of colorful monsters according to HBO Max, and even an army of evil gremlins, meaning this show has all the ingredients of filling the void left by the Godzilla cartoon from the 90s, making us incredibly excited to see how this turns out. The series, already renewed for a second season, features a star-studded voice cast including Izaac Wang, Ming-Na Wen, BD Wong, James Hong, A.J. LoCascio, Gabrielle Green, and Matthew Rhys.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News. Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol is one of the most-adapted tales in the history of the English language, and Steven Knight, creator of gritty period series Peaky Blinders and Taboo, is the latest talent to have taken on the task.We all know the story: crotchety miser Ebenezer Scrooge has a Christmas Eve night visitation from his dead former partner Jacob Marley, who warns him of three ghosts who will attend him as he walks through visions of Christmases past, present, and future.This new FX presentation, directed by Nick Murphy (The Awakening), stars Guy Pearce as Scrooge and Andy Serkis as a grumpy Ghost of Christmas Past and promises a darker take on the 1843 novella that made a superstar of its author: A Christmas Carol is a spine-tingling immersion into Scrooge s dark night of the soul, the promotional materials promise. It is a darker retelling. There s no question, Serkis told Rotten Tomatoes. It s a unique retelling in that respect because Scrooge in this is not some sort of old miser character. He s actually a tough businessmen who is in denial and doesn t want to really engage with his own moral relativism. We caught up with the stars to get a feel for the new adaptation — and it indeed feels scary. Here are five ways this Christmas Carol one-ups previous efforts.1. This Cool Scrooge Resonates With Modern Audiences(Photo by Kurt Iswarienko/FX)Scrooge is not as crotchety here as in previous interpretations of the character; in fact, the character may resemble more real-life people than ever before. Pearce offered a personal assessment of his character. They really wanted somebody this time who still had been affected in life the way that we know Scrooge has been, but that his demeanor and his presence in the world was more of a businessman, as a leader who is a kind of a cocky, confident, swaggering kind of asshole, basically, Pearce told Rotten Tomatoes. I think it was important for Nick, our director, and for Steven, our writer, to get away from the crotchety old man who exhibits on the surface the pain and damage that he s experienced in his life. And the fact that he s turned away from the world and plays somebody who s actually up front to the world and says, Come on, bring it on. Bring on your questions about who I am and what it is, because I ve got a really good response for you. And kind of like that, be a little bit more affronting and aggressive. And so, in a way, we still get to the point where we drag him through his past, and we make him look at the things he s done to people, and we crack open the soul that is a damaged soul. 2. This Ghost of Christmas Past Plays Dirty(Photo by Robert Viglasky/FX)But his Scrooge will face a harder fight in Knight s version, Pearce confirmed: It s a tougher journey because the Ghost of Christmas Past is a really hard nut to crack. The Ghost of Christmas Past is jaded, the character description offers. He’s been sent to make lost souls repent before, why should Scrooge be any different? He prods and pokes where it hurts, transforming himself into those known to his charge, finding a place of pain, shame and self-knowledge. But can he get Scrooge to recognize himself, and repent? 3. The Ghost of Christmas Present Has a Much More Personal Relationship With Scrooge(Photo by Robert Viglasky/FX)Charlotte Riley appears as the Ghost of Christmas Present, while Jason Flemyng is the Ghost of Christmas Future. Both ghosts are updated here with new twists on the characters. She plays my sister who has died some years before, Pearce said, and she has now come back as the Ghost of Christmas Present. And — particularly after the ruthlessness of Andy Serkis Ghost of Christmas Past, who shape-shifts into all sorts of characters through my past, and he s really tough on me — then she comes in as the Ghost of Christmas Present, and it s my long lost dead sister, so it s so emotional and so touching and painful. And then it s capped off with Jason playing sort of ruthless again, but silent like the silent-killer kind of attitude, as the Ghost of Christmas Future. 4. Steven Knight s Take Is Indeed Chilling(Photo by Robert Viglasky/FX)One of the most unsettling features of the new story is how closely it hews to issues — and personalities — we face today, which is a very intentional choice. Serkis said he knew he was in for something special when he heard Knight was attached. When I heard that there was another version of Christmas Carol being made, I kind of thought, Wow, OK. Again? Another one?' he said. But as soon as I knew that Steven Knight was writing it, I knew that now, This is going to be an interesting take, because I knew this was going to be the beginning of a journey into his exploration of Dickens in other stories as well, which is the case. Knight and the stars had previously talked about stripping down the story, which Serkis expounded on for Rotten Tomatoes. When we say stripping down, it was more about not getting bogged down in the sort of tropes of a costume drama, Victorian drama, and allowing it to live afresh as a really contemporary piece of writing, he said. And therefore, and so, even though you re what you, of course, allowing the visuals, you do that work, you want to feel that the character is alive and very present and not sort of imagining what it might be like to have been alive in the 19th century. You re not doing that. You re actually saying these are people, people are people, and we still have the same issues, problems. We need to unpack the difficulties of the human condition in this, in a very modern way to make this story resonate with a fresh audience. 5. Serkis Costuming Challenge Continues Here Even If He s Not a CG-Enhanced Character(Photo by Robert Viglasky/FX)Serkis, known especially for his CG-enhanced performances like Gollum and Caesar in the Lord of the Rings and Planet of the Apes franchises, faced a different sort of challenge here. [The costume] was so heavy. It was like going from the sublime to the ridiculous. I couldn t possibly have more makeup or costume to bear, but it was great, actually. It was nice to play a character in the flesh, and it was a particularly challenging character, not least because it was like sensory deprivation actually wearing this costume. I had long locks of hair and an additional beard. I had an eye that I couldn t see out of. I had scars all over my face. I had long nails, so once I got into costume, I was able to kind of get into the character and stay there. I had to. To compound his costuming issues, they filmed in summer. It was pretty brutal at times, Serkis said. I just had to at least take the hat off and get the top layer off as much as I could. But — actor problems.

Pictures, @ Legendary )Pokémon Detective Pikachu is finally out in theaters, with Ryan Reynolds bringing everyone s favorite poké-detective to life. The video game on which the movie is based hit the Nintendo 3DS in March 2018 – just about a year ahead of the movie’s debut. You may have already picked it up and played it, especially since it came out alongside an oversized Detective Pikachu amiibo figure.So if you already played the game, is it worth going to see the movie in theaters, or would you essentially be seeing a retread of the story you already experienced in game form? Here s the good news: The two stories are different enough that even if you played through Detective Pikachu more than once, you ll still be able to get plenty out of the movie as well. In many cases, they re two different sides of the same coin – one focused on humor and adult situations and the other a more Pokémon-centric story steeped in series lore with a less definitive ending. The best course of action for most Poké-fans will be, possibly as expected, to see both. Here are some of the key differences. (Warning: Mild Pokémon Detective Pikachu spoilers follow.)A Different Tim Goodman While the plots of both the movie and game are somewhat similar, they diverge in several ways from their respective opening moments. For instance, while Tim Goodman (played in the movie by Justice Smith) is still the main protagonist in both stories, he s just a boy in the game and a 21-year-old in the movie. The game s Tim is a typical Pokémon trainer looking for his father, Harry, who happens upon a special Pikachu he can communicate with. The duo pair up to look for Harry and stumble onto a rash of weird Pokémon behaviors throughout Ryme City. Their investigation begins when they must recover a necklace stolen by a group of wild Aipom.The movie s Tim is a young man who gave up on training Pokémon after his mother passed away and he found himself dealing with an absentee father. He learns later on that his father may have passed away while investigating a case, then travels to Ryme City to collect his father s assets and meets Pikachu. Their first chat is interrupted by an attacking group of Aipom under the influence of a strange purple gas called R. (Photo by @ Warner Bros. Pictures, @ Legendary )A Cub Reporter Joins the FoldFrom there, both stories are markedly different. While they include major plot points that resemble each other, the characters and stories that unravel throughout each narrative are only slightly similar in tone or content.Both feature a drug named R that pushes Pokémon to behave irrationally and go on rampages, and Tim s father is missing in both the movie and the game. They both also note that Pikachu is a Pokémon whose human speech can only be heard by Tim. But while the game features a reporter named Meiko Okamato and her assistant Emilia Christie, the movie features Lucy (Kathryn Newton), a wannabe reporter who writes fluff pieces and who acts as Tim s companion. Further, the ending of the movie gives us true closure on Harry s whereabouts as well as how he ties into Pikachu himself, where the game is more content to hint at what actually happened, possibly so the game could be more open to a sequel in the future. While Warner Bros has already greenlit a sequel for the live-action flick, they will have a significantly harder time explaining why there s a talking Pikachu with Reynolds voice back in the saddle the second time around.(Photo by @ Warner Bros. Pictures, @ Legendary )Spectacle vs. Gumshoe Detective WorkMost importantly, the Detective Pikachu game is much more centered on the “mystery” aspect of various occurrences involving Pokémon throughout Ryme City, with Pikachu taking on the demeanor of an old-time investigator. This leans into the interactive nature of the game.The movie, on the other hand, is an action-packed summer blockbuster that focuses more on comedic timing, jokes, and the spectacle of Pokémon in their computer-generated forms. Since this is the first live-action Pokémon movie, attention is kept squarely on ensuring the audience gets more than a few eyefuls of the ’mons interacting with their live-action counterparts – think the infamous Mr. Mime scene or Psyduck asking Pikachu for a foot rub. It’s content to focus mostly on making the audience laugh, sucker punching them with an emotional scene, and peppering it all with that Reynolds-flavored sarcasm.(Photo by @ Warner Bros. Pictures, @ Legendary )Further Viewing: The World of PokémonIf the end of Detective Pikachu left you wanting more, you’ll be left waiting a while for the next live-action Pokémon movie. However, there is a wide selection of anime movies based on the game as well anime series that you can tear into right after getting out of the theater – most are available to stream for free thanks to The Pokémon Company.
Join us weekly as Rotten Tomatoes reports on what s indie features are streaming. From promising releases by new voices to experimental efforts from storied filmmakers – or perhaps the next indie darling to go the distance for end-of-year accolades – we will break it all down for you here each week.For the foreseeable future, the specialty box office and all theatrical releases will be on hold as we all make efforts to socially distance ourselves and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. With that in mind, we have reshaped our Indie Fresh List to reflect the specialty box office releases that are newly available on streaming services and VOD. This week in our Fresh picks we have a gritty London crime thriller, a quarter-life crisis comedy, and a thought-provoking documentary about an artist and the man who stole her work. In our Spotlight section, we have the final installment of Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan s comedy travel series.Streaming This Weekend

Sundance may be famous for setting the terms of the indie film conversation of the year, but the film festival also serves as a launching platform for new horror voices that become successes later on. As the home to Hereditary, The Babadook, Get Out, and The Blair Witch Project, the Sundance Midnight program has a bit of a reputation, leaving this year’s selection with some pretty big shoes to fill.This year, genre spread to other sections of the programming, as fans needn’t have stayed up late at the Park City Library to catch some disturbing or just plain weird movies. No matter what your favorite genre is, you were bound to find something up your alley, from unusual documentaries to scary movies to fantastical comedies. And the good news is that distributors and streaming services are likely to snatch them up and make them available to you soon, with some of them already on the way.With expectations high, the question of what will be this year’s Hereditary-style hit is constantly brought up. We checked out the films competing to become this year’s big breakout hit, and rounded up what the critics were saying, so you can begin preparing your watchlists of what Sundance films are most likely to make a big impression once they get released.His House (2020) 100%(Photo by Aidan Monaghan courtesy of Sundance Institute)Distributor: NetflixRelease Date: TBDNetflix’s big acquisition at Sundance is this tale of horror both supernatural and human. His House tells the story of a refugee couple who flee the horrors of the South Sudan civil war and come to England to start a new life. What they find is something that doesn’t want them there, with the very walls of the house exuding a sinister vibe. What makes the film truly special is how it balances the supernatural horrors of a haunted house movie with a poignant and equally devastating immigration story of survivor’s guilt. As Benjamin Lee wrote for The Guardian, “The haunting that takes place is one that’s tied to something that feels real.” Netflix will release His House some time later this year, and once it does, you can expect a movie that will make audiences scream, all while getting people to empathize with a refugee couple’s story by way of a haunted apartment,” as RogerEbert.com’s Nick Allen puts it.Save Yourselves! (2020) 89%(Photo by Matt Clegg courtesy of Sundance Institute)Release Date: TBDWe are all obsessed with our phones; there’s no denying that. But what happens if we try to distance ourselves from the internet for a short time? According to Save Yourselves!, you may miss an alien invasion. Su (Sunita Mani) and Jack (John Paul Reynolds) are a hip Millennial couple, ruled by the technology at their disposal. When Su suggests they get away without technology in order to cleanse themselves during a life-reaffirming week, they find themselves having to fight off adorable poof-like aliens that remind us of a cuter version of Critters, as the rest of the world is already under attack. Rachel Wagner from Rachel Reviews writes that the film “is not only a very funny look at modern Millennial life but a sweet romance of a couple who become stronger through facing off with aliens.” Save Yourselves! is currently looking for distribution.Relic (2020) 92%(Photo by Jackson Finter courtesy of Sundance Institute)Release Date: TBDThe best horror often manages to be both a terrifying piece of entertainment and a poignant commentary on our reality. A remarkable debut by Natalie Erika James, Relic turns the haunted house story on its head, using the horror genre to tell an emotional story of dementia. Australian stage legend Robyn Nevin gives a terrifying yet emotionally devastating performance as a woman whose mind and body is slowly failing her, while a strange and eerie presence haunts her home. “Like Mike Flanagan before her”, writes Film School Rejects Rob Hunter, “Natalie Erika James flawlessly blends terrifying horror with the ache of humanity.” Rest assured, when Relic finally gets released, it will make you scream before it pulls on your heart strings.Run Sweetheart Run (2020) 73%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute)Distributor: BlumhouseRelease Date: TBDBlumhouse returns to Sundance with its second “Sweetheart”-titled movie in Run Sweetheart Run. Like last year’s Sweetheart, this movie finds a young woman having to go toe-to-toe with an inhuman monster, as we follow Ella Balinska’s Cherie on her first date in a while. The problem is that her date turns out less than stellar, and she is forced to run through the streets of Los Angeles for an entire night to escape the blood-loving monster she mistook for a chance at romance. Though critics note that the metaphors are thinly-veiled at best, Bloody Disgusting’s Meagan Navarro writes that “Run Sweetheart Run makes for an entertaining and cheeky trip centered around woman’s curse.”Bad Hair (2020) 62%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute)Release Date: TBDA social thriller starring a killer weave, Bad Hair is a campy throwback to 80s horror B-movies with a whole lot on its mind. Writer-director Justin Simien returns to Sundance with a film about the importance of and controversy surrounding hair in the Black community, focusing on a lowly assistant at a TV show who gets a new hairstyle that helps her move up in her career – with some deadly, bloodthirsty consequences. Writing for That Shelf, Victor Stiff explains that the film “is a delightful horror dramedy that interrogates black women’s struggle to be true to themselves in the face of a system hellbent on snuffing out their blackness.” Bad Hair is looking for distribution.Possessor: Uncut (2020) 94%(Photo by Karim Hussain courtesy of Sundance Institute)Release Date: TBDPlaying like a horror version of Inception, Brandon Cronenberg (yes, son of David) takes us on a disturbing, bloody nightmare that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. The film stars Andrea Riseborough as a contract killer whose consciousness gets implanted into others so she can control them into committing murders for hire that is, until she finds herself struggling to control a particularly difficult body. This is a movie that’s not for the faint of heart, as Slashfilm’s Chris Evangelista writes: “This isn’t a work designed to thrill and entertain. Instead, it’s meticulously crafted to horrify. The violence on display here is graphic to the extreme, yet it never feels cartoonish.” While the violence and blood may be too much for some viewers, critics agree that this film is a unique experience worth seeing; as Rob Hunter writes for Film School Rejects, Possessor “is fantastically and cruelly unforgettable.” Keep an eye out for Possessor as it looks for distribution.Into the Deep (2020) 100%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute)Distributor: NetflixRelease Date: TBDThe rare documentary to play at the midnight slot, this bone-chilling film started as an homage to Danish amateur inventor Peter Madsen before turning into an exploration of evil when Madsen murdered and dismembered Swedish journalist Kim Wall during the time the doc was being shot. Emma Sullivan’s Into the Deep features stunning footage both pre-murder and in its immediate aftermath, dealing with the shock of the filmmakers realizing what kind of subject they’re following as their film begins to resemble something akin to a horror flick. Writing for Vanyaland, Nick Johnston says, “Into the Deep is a unique beast in a documentary landscape that’s more consumed than ever with the true-crime genre, and it is a must-watch for anyone even slightly curious about the events of this bizarre and tragic crime.” Netflix will release Into the Deep later this year.The Night House (2020) 87%(Photo by Elisha Christian courtesy of Sundance Institute)Distributor: Searchlight PicturesRelease Date: TBDLike A Quiet Place in 2018, The Night House relies on sound to create a terrifying horror experience that will make your bones vibrate. After the loss of her husband, Beth (Rebecca Hall) begins to spend her nights plagued by strange dreams and creepy noises around the house. Critics spoke highly of Hall’s performance, with Birth.Movies.Death’s Ed Travis calling her a “scream queen.” They also commended the string of jump scares that shook audiences at the fest; Bloody Disgusting s Meagan Navarro explains “[the film] leaves you breathless and your heart pumping hard.” Searchlight Pictures bought the distribution rights for the film and will be releasing at a later date.Scare Me (2020) 82%(Photo by Brendan Banks courtesy of Sundance Institute)Distributor: ShudderRelease Date: TBDNo matter how elaborate or grand a horror movie is, the scariest memories most of us have still belong to the nights we spent as youngsters listening to scary stories after dark. Scare Me takes the tale of an aspiring horror screenwriter trapped in a snowy cabin with a best-selling horror novelist telling each other stories and turns it into an exploration of the creative process and even gender politics, all while delivering a minimalist yet still spooky experience. As Daily Dead’s Heather Wixson writes, “Scare Me is an absolute delight and a real gift for both horror fans as well as those of us who can’t get enough of hearing a good story. ” Shudder will release Scare Me at a later date.Spree (2020) 67%(Photo by Rylan Perry courtesy of Sundance Institute)Distributor: RLJE FilmsRelease Date: TBDEugene Kotlyarenko’s Spree asks, What if Joker was a streamer and wannabe influencer? The thriller-comedy, which is shot found-footage style, features Joe Keery doing his best Arthur Fleck impersonation as a guy obsessed with becoming internet famous by streaming a night of violent mayhem. It s a commentary on our collective obsession with social media, privilege, and the darkness of comment sections. What makes the film more than just a Black Mirror episode is how it infuses jokes and gags into the horror – and then seems to ask why we re laughing. Nick Allen wrote for RogerEbert.com that “Spree brilliantly shows influencer culture for the totally demented lifestyle that it is.” RLJE Films will release Spree later this year.Like this?

The 46th annual Telluride Film Festival wrapped this Monday and for the first time in recent memory, a pair of stars prompted the typically celebrity-averse attendees to throw convention out the window. The quiet rustic town, nestled high up in the Colorado mountains, is so small that hiding behind a velvet rope is nearly impossible; since it s one of the most in-demand stops on the fall awards circuit, A-listers typically walk the street with little fanfare. This year, however, first-time attendee Adam Sandler and Telluride alum Adam Driver were the toast of the town. Both were mobbed by uncharacteristically star-struck festivalgoers, and both just smiled through the attention.Billy Madison and Kylo Ren may have caused a brief departure from the norm, but this year s program remained unchanged in one way audiences were treated to exceptional films from auteur filmmakers. Sandwiched between the Toronto International and Venice Film Festivals, the laid-back fest remains a coveted stop on the way to Oscar glory, with eight of the last 10 Best Picture winners screened in Telluride. From what we heard and saw on the ground there, coupled with our Venice Scorecard tracking reviews for films premiering at that festival, some of our Ridiculously Early Oscar Predictions are looking more likely, while other Oscar hopefuls left their chances high atop the mountains. With a shortened season, the frontrunners will have to come out of the gates strong if they plan to stay in contention, and we can already see early trends and storylines emerging. Here are our key takeaways from this year s Telluride Film Festival as we head into Toronto.A Tale of Two Adams: Sandler, Driver In the Best Actor Race(Photo by © A24)Adam Sandler and Adam Driver took Telluride by storm. Sandler, who made the trek for the first time with the Safdie brothers Uncut Gems, was rewarded with the best reviews he s earned since Punch Drunk Love. As we mentioned in our Telluride preview, Uncut Gems enjoyed a buzzy world premiere, with much interest in what Sandler and the Safdies could bring, following the directing duo s breakout hit Good Time. The film stars Sandler as a fast-talking celebrity jeweler and places the audience in a state of constant tension for 135 minutes – a staple of the Safdies directing style. Sandler chatted, joked, and mingled with the festivalgoers as critics heralded his equally charismatic and frantic performance as the best work of his career. Uncut Gems is still Fresh at 100% on the Tomatometer, and many are signaling that the SNL alum could make his second visit to the Golden Globes (his first was for Punch) and maybe further.Though Sandler was clearly living his best life in Telluride, perhaps no one had a better weekend than Adam Driver. In addition to screening his two awards contenders, The Report and Marriage Story, the Star Wars star was also honored with a tribute handed to him by none other than Martin Scorsese. Scorsese, who directed Driver in Silence, proclaimed him to be the greatest actor of his generation, and the praise for Driver did not stop there. He garnered positive reviews for both of his films, though Netflix s Marriage Story, from Noah Baumbach, is clearly the stronger play for him to earn a Best Actor Oscar nomination at this point. Following his first nomination last year for BlacKkKlansman, the marine-turned-thespian is launching right back into the season with the full weight of the Netflix awards team behind him. Given the fact that he will also be right in heart of the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker press tour during the height of the awards season, Adam Driver will be the name on everyone’s (and every voter’s) lips.International Cannes Favorites Continue to Wow Critics(Photo by Dominique Charriau/WireImage)After their glamorous premieres on the French Riviera at the Cannes Film Festival, Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite and Céline Sciamma s Portrait of a Lady on Fire continued to wow critics at Telluride.Back at Cannes, Justin Chang of the Los Angeles Times compared Parasite to Jordan Peele’s Us: An escalating freak show of tension, surprise and class rage, Parasite would make a terrific double bill with Us, which it matches and perhaps even surpasses in impact. Also in May, Stephanie Zacharek was equally favorable to Portrait of a lady on Fire, calling it a great example of how a well-told story, with vivid characters, can seep right into your bones and keep you thinking for days afterward and the pleasure felt while watching it isn t negligible either. The overwhelmingly positive receptions out of Cannes came as no surprise to most, but the frenzied quests to see the films at Telluride were slightly unexpected. As word grew of the dual masterworks, screenings were reportedly turning people away. The last showing of Parasite turned away over 600, an astonishing number for the intimate festival. Bong, who many think will pull a Best Directing and possibly a Best Picture Oscar nomination for Parasite (a rare feat for an international film), appears to be very much undaunted by all the hype. When we chatted with him at Telluride, he was most interested in the other films on the slate, adding modestly, “I am just happy people like it. Like is a gross understatement for either film, both of which will have sizable awards campaigns, so don’t be surprised if they show up in the newly dubbed Best International Film category in 2020.Ford v. Ferrari Revs into the Oscar Voters ViewFord vs. Ferrari is the quintessential Hollywood Oscar movie. A true-life period-piece? Check. An A-list cast of Oscar winners/nominees? Check. A prestige director? Check. Aimed at older Oscar voters? Checkmate! With Ford v. Ferrari, director James Mangold and stars Matt Damon and Christian Bale look to repeat the same formula that spelled success for Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper in 2014 with American Sniper. The story of how the Ford motor company s Carroll Shelby (Damon) and Ken Miles (Bale) battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and each other to topple racing Goliath Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is very much on-brand for Oscar voters. It s this year s Moneyball with race cars, and Tomris Laffly of RogerEbert.com raved that it s a 60s-set adrenaline rusher with top-shelf technical craftsmanship. This one will look to pull accolades for those in front of and behind the camera.The Comeback Kid Preps for a Cinderella Story(Photo by JEAN-BAPTISTE LACROIX/AFP/Getty Images)Not to be outdone by Adams Driver and Sandler, Renée Zellweger also made a memorable trip to Telluride with Judy, whose positive reception confirmed our very own Bridget Jones has indeed returned. Zellweger is unrecognizable as the tragic starlet Judy Garland, and the performance (including the singing and dancing) is uncanny. As Gary Oldman did in Darkest Hour, Zellweger fades away, and you only see Judy, a part many are saying the Texas native was born to play. Erik Anderson of AwardsWatch said of Zellweger, [She] knows a bit about being chewed up and spit out by the Hollywood machine and the gaggle of media that want to focus on every flaw, every alleged surgery or unsuccessful marriage. It s part of what makes her the perfect choice to play Garland. After a string of sometimes downright nasty media coverage over the last few years, we are thrilled that Zellweger has reemerged better than ever in this second act of her storied career with two very different projects. Earlier this year she played a Gordon Gecko-styled femme fatale in Netflix’s What/If, and this week at Telluride we saw her inspired take on one of the world’s most beloved singer-actresses. Perhaps there’s really no need to call it comeback, but we re happy about it nevertheless.And the Oscar Goes to Netflix (Maybe)(Photo by © Netflix)Moments after Roma screened at Telluride in 2018, anyone who had the privilege to see it instantly understood why Netflix bristled at anyone discounting its cinematic brilliance. The hands-down favorite to win Best Picture on Oscar night, Alfonso Cuarón s semi-autobiographical retelling of his adolescence ultimately lost to Green Book, and many saw the decision as a rejection of the streaming giant Netflix, as opposed to a victory for the Peter Farrelly dramedy. The same scenario is taking shape for several Netflix films in 2020, as Marriage Story, The Two Popes, The King, Dolemite is My Name, and Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman are all poised to make deep runs this season. The question is, will it be enough for any of them to take home the top prize? The Academy rejected a rumored plan that would require a four-week streaming window for Oscar eligibility, but even campaigning from Martin Scorsese himself could persuade theater distributors AMC, Regal, and Cinemark to compromise and screen his film at their theaters. Regardless of where you land on the streaming debate, the final word may be given on Oscar night, and we can’t wait to watch.Awards Season Forecast Clears Up (And Waves makes a splash)(Photo by © A24)Prior to festival season, most awards predictions are about as scientific as tossing darts at a list of names; few films in the conversation have even screened before Telluride or Venice. Post-Telluride, however, the landscape pulls into focus. There’s always that one film no one saw coming, like Moonlight, or a film that surpasses all expectations, like Lady Bird, and more often than not, these films premiere at the Colorado festival. (It’s worth noting Lady Bird and Moonlight shot into the awards conversation due in large part to their rapturous Telluride debuts.) This year’s discovery is undoubtedly Waves by Trey Edward Shults, the seemingly fearless filmmaker behind horror movie It Comes At Night whose unconventional stories are wholly unique. Sheri Linden of The Hollywood Reporter proclaimed Waves as further evidence that Shults, at 30, is one of the most versatile and gifted young filmmakers working today. Little was known about the plot or premise of Shults sophomore effort, but following the premiere (for all those who seek to watch it, we advise going in blind), there was no shortage of praise for stars Sterling K. Brown, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and newcomer Taylor Russell. Waves is a dark horse contender for end-of-year awards, but still very much in the race.Like this?

Captain Marvel (2019) 79% Film franchises rarely make it past a sequel or two before they burn out, let alone 20 films, but that s exactly how far the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come since Iron Man debuted back in 2008. For all of their success, however, Marvel has endured a bit of criticism for centering all of their films around male heroes. This week, the studio answers back with Captain Marvel, the first solo outing for a female superhero in the franchise, and the results, critics say, are pretty solid, if not revolutionary. Brie Larson stars as the titular character, a member of an interplanetary defense force on a planet called Hala who suffers from puzzling flashbacks. When a failed rescue mission crash-lands her on Earth during the 1990s, she begins to realize she may have had a life here and slowly learns, with the help of a young S.H.I.E.L.D. agent named Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the secret behind her powers. The reviews say Captain Marvel doesn t break any particularly new ground for an origin story and feels like a decidedly mid-tier Marvel effort, but it boasts plenty of action, breezy humor, and an easy chemistry between its leads, all while carrying the significant weight of lofty expectations on its shoulders. It may not crack the upper echelon of the studio s offerings, but it s an entertaining standalone film that makes the most of the Marvel formula.
欧宝体育官网登录入口 Mark your calendars for stardate 11020.23 (we think) — that is, January 23, 2020 — when the highly anticipated Star Trek: Picard finally launches, the cast and creators announced at New York Comic-Con on Saturday.The CBS All Access spin-off stars Patrick Stewart as the legendary Jean-Luc Picard and will include numerous familiar faces from Star Trek: The Next Generation, which first introduced the titular character. Data (Brent Spiner), William Riker (Jonathan Frakes), Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), and Hugh (Jonathan Del Arco) all make their return in the new series.Revisiting Picard 20 years later felt like less of a job and more of a gift, executive producer Akiva Goldsman said at the top of the October 5 Star Trek Universe panel at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater.“I think we’ve done pretty well,” Goldsman said of living up to The Next Generation’s formidable standard. “You’re surrounded by a lot of people who love Star Trek and a lot of people who love Captain Picard — and who actually love Patrick Stewart — so it very quickly went from ‘job’ to ‘opportunity.’ We’re pretty blessed, and I don’t throw that word around.”To learn all the details from the event, including what’s in store for some of the franchise’s new faces, read on for everything we know about Star Trek: Picard.It’s an All-New Adventure With the Captain We Love(Photo by Matt Kennedy/CBS)The new journey with Picard and co. takes place after the events of the feature film Nemesis in 2002 (the death of Data, for one) and the eventual defeat of the Romulans (as established in the Picard-less 2009 feature). Picard has disassociated himself from Star Fleet and is spending his old age in retirement and isolation at Château Picard, where he’s joined by a trusted pitbull companion, Number One (a knowing nod to his longtime second-in-command Riker, of course).“We wanted it to be a real-time follow-up to where last we saw Picard,” Goldsman explained of the jump in time. “We wanted to let the ensuing years that have passed for us also [to] have passed for Jean-Luc, so we all spent a lot of time collaboratively filling in those 20 years.”And while there is development in the Picard scripts and its narrative architecture of what has happened to the former captain in the ensuing years, the story here picks up with the unexpected arrival of Dahj (Isa Briones), a young woman who turns to Picard for help following an enormous trauma, in turn reigniting Picard s desire to return to the Starfleet.Sir Patrick Needed Some Wooing to Return to the Role(Photo by Trae Patton/CBS)While Picard is one of Stewart’s best-known and most-beloved roles over the course of his expansive career, it’s also one that the 79-year-old thespian had vowed to never return to again. So how did executive producer Alex Kurtzman and his team of Star Trek diehards persuade him? Through an admiring patience and persistence.“He was sure about saying no. He was positively negative about the whole thing,” Kurtzman teased of the first pitch meeting between himself, Stewart, Goldsman, and supervising producer Kirsten Beyer. “We pitched and he said, ‘It’s lovely — and no thank you.’ He said, ‘I couldn’t possibly, but I really appreciate it.’”The idea initially came together as Kurtzman was mapping out his new string of his short film series, Short Treks, and posited the idea of a Picard-focused outing.“Akiva and Kirsten and I were sort of thinking about what that would be, and then we went, ‘A Short Trek would be great, but what if we could bring him back?’ ” Kurtzman recalled. “So I called his agent and I said, ‘I know he’s probably never coming back, but would you do us the favor of trying to set up a meeting?’”And while Stewart’s initial response was a decisive no, he soon reconsidered, asking for a four-page mock-up of the plan for the 10-episode order. What writer, executive producer, and Star Trek superfan Michael Chabon ended up turning in, as Stewart remembers it, was a bit longer.“I seem to remember 35 [pages],” Stewart said, laughing about the attempt by the Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist (for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay) to woo him.“It was an incredible document,” Kurtzman agreed. “And I can tell you that one of the greatest moments that we had was coming to see you [Stewart] after you had read the document not knowing what the response was going to be, and you walked into the room and you were smiling. That was the moment.”Picard Isn’t All About Being a TNG Reunion, Though(Photo by Trae Patton/CBS)While the response in the room to seeing the likes of Data and Riker pop up in the NYCC trailer for Picard was rapturous, to say the least, the creators on stage did emphasize that they didn’t want it to be just a shallow reunion show. When asked about how they negotiated bringing back fan-favorite franchise vets and serving the heart of the story, executive producer Heather Kadin explained that no one was brought back thoughtlessly or without the bigger picture in mind.“A big concern was we did not want it to be — and especially Patrick did not want it to be — a TNG reunion show,” she said. “And I think what you can even tell from the trailer and what you’ll definitely tell when you watch the series is we only brought people back if their story really mattered to the story we were telling. We didn’t want it to be, ‘And then over here is Riker!’ You know? I don’t think the fans would’ve appreciated that, either, and it was really important to Patrick, who obviously has longstanding, deep relationships with these people, that if we’re going to go to them and say, ‘Join a show that’s called Picard,’ that we give them something significant to do. You’ll see that each one of them has a pivotal, emotional story to tell in our 10 episodes.”New Heroes Will Run A-Plenty — Though What’s in Store Is Still Under Wraps(Photo by Trae Patton/CBS)Joining the Picard creatives and Stewart on the NYCC stage were series newcomers Briones, Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal “Chris” Rios), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Harry Treadaway ( Narek), and Evan Evagora (Elnor). While the actors are contractually obligated to remain tight-lipped, we did learn some necessary backstory for what to expect going into the January premiere.When Dahj comes in search for Picard’s help, that help quickly becomes a two-way street, Briones said.“When Dahj and Picard first meet, it’s this really special moment of two lost souls colliding in a way in this crazy circumstance that is born out of tragedy. [It’s] two people helping each other. It starts with me asking for help, but I think we help each other, which is a really, really beautiful moment to have with Sir Patrick Stewart,” Briones said.Though she couldn t reveal too much, she said “‘complicated’ is a good word” to describe the predicament Dahj finds herself in.“I am seeking help from him because of a horrible tragedy that I have just gone through, and my gut is telling me to go to Picard, and that in itself is so complicated, just the feeling of me needing someone and going to this man saying, ‘I need help,’” Briones said.Kadin added that much like Tilly on Star Trek: Discovery, Dahj will be a point of entry for non-Star Trek fans to jump into the world of Picard.“In the way Tilly has been a representation of someone new to the world on Discovery, I think you’ll find that Isa’s character gives you that way into this show,” she said. “But I also think that Patrick has so many fans from so many things that I think that he’s going to bring that to this show, and I think people are going to be able to be welcomed into it without a problem.”As far as the other characters, “complicated” remained the word of the hour, whether it was used to describe the shared history of Raffi and Picard (per Hurd: “We have a past. We’ve worked together, and we had a falling out.”); of Rios’s return to Starfleet after he left “due to some traumatic events in his past in relation to Starfleet,” according to Cabrera; or of the introduction of “odd couple” Romulans Narek and Elnor, who are navigating a world in which they are no longer welcome.Pill’s Dr. Jurati comes into the mix after being swept up in Picard’s once-in-a-lifetime (and still-unnamed) intergalactic adventure.“Picard’s mission ends up being exactly what she’s spent her entire life reading about, so they have the same goal in mind, and the possibility of it invites this woman to want to go on an adventure unlike anything she’s ever [been] on,” Pill teased.Stewart later emphasized that it’s the series’ ongoing ensemble work that remains his top priority while being top of the call sheet.“I looked on every aspect of The Next Generation as being ensemble-based, and in fact, that has been very much an indicator of where I was in my career — that the ensembles that I’d worked with, whether they were in theater or film or television, have always been to me like another character,” he said. “And so when we first met and talked in those early discussions, it was, my use of that word, the ensemble, the uniting of a group, because here we sit, I can only speak personally, but in love with all of these people on my left, and of course the people on the right. And that’s where the ensemble element comes from, and it’s very important.”There’s a New (Adorable) Number One, and He Has a Personal Significance to Stewart(Photo by Matt Kennedy/CBS)For those who watched the trailer, we’re introduced to Picard’s pet pitbull, named Number One. While the dog has been featured prominently in promotion of the CBS All Access series, little is known thus far of what role, exactly, the pup will be playing. But it wasn’t lost on the NYCC audience that Stewart has a real-world connection to pitbulls, working tirelessly in nonprofit initiatives and fostering and adopting the oft-misunderstood breed himself.With that in mind, Stewart revealed that when it became clear that Kurtzman was going to include a dog for Picard in this 10-episode journey, he pushed for it to be a pitbull to further destigmatize the breed onscreen.“Once the dog issue had been agreed upon, I did campaign proliferously for it to be a pitbull,” he said, noting the prominence of the now-famous dog from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. “But what I didn’t know at the time was that Brad Pitt had gotten in there ahead of me, and there’s another pitbull now that’s become very famous in the last few weeks.”Kurtzman Wants Picard to Continue Star Trek’s Social Legacy(Photo by Trae Patton/CBS)The turn of phrase that Kurtzman likes best when discussing his slate of new Star Trek iterations is that he wants it to be reflective of the social and political state of today’s world.“Star Trek is a mirror that holds itself up to society,” Kurtzman said. And specifically pointing out the ways in which Star Trek: Picard will deal with its treatment of the defeated and refuge-seeking Romulans, he said that the series dives right into the muck of it. “We’re in a massive immigration metaphor right now in the middle of a massive immigration conversation, and we are very proud, I think, to say that we are diving head-first into that and to using Trek as a way of exploring it from all points of view.”Star Trek: Picard premieres January 23, 2020, on CBS All AccessLike this?

It was just last week that we heard about Angelina Jolie being in talks for a lead role in The Eternals, but that s not actually the next film in the works. Marvel is closer to starting production on the Black Widow solo film, starring Scarlett Johansson, with filming scheduled to begin in June. Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family, Lady MacBeth) was announced last month for Black Widow, and this week, it was revealed that two more stars are in talks. Rachel Weisz (The Favourite) is now in talks for a role in Black Widow. David Harbour (Stranger Things), who will star later this month in the Hellboy, is also in talks for a Black Widow role. We don t yet have any clue what the Black Widow movie is about (including whether it s a prequel or is set after Avengers: Endgame), or what characters Pugh, Weisz, or Harbour might be playing. (This writer s guess for Rachel Weisz is long-time HYDRA leader Viper.) Black Widow may be the Marvel Studios movie scheduled for May 1, 2020.Fresh Developments1. CILLIAN MURPHY JOINS A QUIET PLACE 2(Photo by Anthony Harvey/Getty Images)Last year s monster/suspense movie A Quiet Place (Certified Fresh at 95%) was a surprise box office hit, with over 0 million worldwide from a budget of just million. Paramount quickly greenlit a sequel for next year (May 15, 2020), with real life married couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski returning (as actress and writer/director, respectively). This week, it was confirmed that the the two surviving kid actors (Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds) would be returning for the sequel, and also the first new cast member for the sequel. Frequent Christopher Nolan collaborator and Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy will join Emily Blunt in the A Quiet Place sequel as a character who is described as a man with mysterious intentions who joins the family unit. The other movie scheduled against A Quiet Place 2 is the animated Scooby-Doo reboot Scoob, featuring the voices of Zac Efron, Tracy Morgan, and Amanda Seyfried.2. EMMA STONE AND RALPH FIENNES MAY STAR IN HORROR COMEDY THE MENU(Photo by Sabrina Lantos/Sony Classics)After six Academy Award nominations, and two wins (for Adapted Screenplay), Alexander Payne had his first Rotten film as director with 2017 s Downsizing. For his next film, Payne is reportedly recruiting Emma Stone (three Oscar nominations, one win) and Ralph Fiennes (two Academy Award nominations). Described as a comedic horror-thriller, the movie is called The Menu, and is about a couple who travel to a remote island to attend an exclusive restaurant where the acclaimed chef (Fiennes) has prepared a lavish tasting menu, along with some shocking surprises. Although Alexander Payne won both of his Academy Awards as screenwriter, The Menu was instead written by late night TV show staff writers Will Tracy (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver) and Seth Reiss (Late Night with Seth Meyers). Emma Stone will next co-star in the sequels Zombieland: Double Tap (10/11/2019) and The Croods 2 (9/18/2020), and Ralph Fiennes has at least three films scheduled for 2020 as well.3. MARK HAMILL TO VOICE CHUCKY IN NEW CHILD S PLAY(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)Enough fans of the Child s Play franchise have been talking about Brad Dourif not voicing Chucky in this summer s Child s Play reboot (6/21/2019) that no Brad Dourif is a top autocorrect result on Google search. Curiously, for a movie that is just over two months away from release, however, we didn t actually know for sure who would be voicing Chucky instead. As it turns out, the actor taking on the role is the one famous for voicing the Joker in dozens of video games and animated TV shows. Mark Hamill is obviously best known for his role as Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, and he can now add Child s Play to the list of franchises he s associated with. Hamill announced his participation in a video that debuted at this past weekend s WonderCon in Anaheim.4. VIOLA DAVIS, JAI COURTNEY TO RETURN IN THE SUICIDE SQUAD(Photo by Warner Bros.)When director James Gunn s The Suicide Squad (8/6/2021) was first announced, it was quickly described as a soft reboot with a new cast of supervillains. That, however, was before it was confirmed that Margot Robbie would indeed be returning as Harley Quinn. (We also thought Deadshot would be returning, albeit in the form of Idris Elba instead of Will Smith, though it later turned out that s not the character Elba would be playing.) This week, we learned of two more actors from the 2016 version who are returning in the same roles. Viola Davis will once again play Amanda Waller, the government agent who brings together the various super villains, and Jai Courtney also talked this week about returning as Captain Boomerang (although it s possible that his character won t survive).5. STERLING K. BROWN TO STAR AS JANITOR-TURNED-COACH IN RISE (Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Chrissy Metz of NBC s This is Us will star in the faith-based drama Breakthrough later this month, and this week, one of her co-stars also signed on for his own faith-based drama. Sterling K. Brown is in talks with Sony s AFFIRM Films (Miracles from Heaven, Heaven is for Real) to star in their inspirational sports drama called Rise. If he signs on, Brown will portray Louisiana middle school janitor Willie Davis, who took over his school s basketball program and went on to compete in the state championship. Rise is based on Davis true life story, which has previously been reported on by HBO s Real Sports. Sony has already scheduled Rise for release a year from next week, on April 10, 2020 (up against James Bond 25).
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (Photo by Jesse Grant/Getty Images for Disney)When Avengers: Infinity War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely dusted half of the universe – and half of the Avengers – at the end of the film, audiences the world over suddenly knew: anything was possible now. The duo had done what few other blockbuster film writers had done before: massacred multiple popular characters in the blink of an eye (or, as it were, the snap of some fingers).While most fans knew some of those deaths were likely to be reversed, the countdown to Avengers: Endgame has been filled with as much dread as excitement. The question on everyone’s mind: Who else were Markus and McFeely going to off?The writers were, as expected, not going anywhere near that question when they both spoke with Rotten Tomatoes ahead of Endgame’s release. But they did reveal the places where they’ve drawn some deadly inspiration.Joel Meares for Rotten Tomatoes: You guys have totally broken the world’s hearts, and fans expect you might do it again. But what TV or movie deaths have affected you the most?Christopher Markus: I mean, the most prominent killers of our popular culture today – they re not killing the popular culture – but it’s Game of Thrones. I still feel disturbed about… what’s his name?Stephen McFeely: Pedro Pascal.Markus: When Pedro Pascal died versus the Mountain. Yeah, that wasn t supposed to happen. That was very disturbing.McFeely: The easy answer for me is the Han Solo in Carbonite. I was not quite prepared for the movie to end that way.Rotten Tomatoes: You guys have adapted C.S. Lewis with the Narnia films, and worked with the characters of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Marvel here. What’s your approach to working with such storied and beloved works? McFeely: As you said we sort of dealt with it in Narnia. We try to put aside the pressure and the obligation in a way and just try to satisfy us as fans and writers. Assuming that the 12-year-old Steve would appreciate this, then perhaps other 12-year-olds would – or 82-year-olds.Markus: I think if you have respect for the underlying material then you just have to go forward and trust that you re not going to betray it. If you find yourself with a writing gig where you don t respect the underlying material, you might want to think about not doing it.(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)Rotten Tomatoes: The beloved character you’ve worked with the most is Cap’. [The duo co-write all three Captain America movies.] Did you want to give him – regardless of what happens in the movie – some kind of special moment, sendoff, or closure? Markus: I mean, I definitely have a special affinity for him. He s a guy who we ve put through a lot of hell and [Chris] Evans does a great job of showing that on his face. He certainly I don t want to say he looks tired, [but] I want to say he looks like there s is a battle-weariness to him. And I find it very satisfying to sort of think of all of that while putting him through yet another trial, like Hercules.Rotten Tomatoes: So, we know that the movie is just over 3 hours long, which makes us wonder: How many pages was your screenplay?Markus: Well, [the length of the script] varies depending on how elaborately we described the action. The script actually gets longer as we re in production, because we need – for the service of various departments – to really describe things that we wouldn t ordinarily describe. So it does tend to balloon at a certain point in an unrealistic manner. I would say the operating script was, what, 130 pages?McFeely: 130, yeah.Markus: Yeah, that s probably where we started. We generally assume a page a minute and so we try not to turn in things that are much more than 120 pages. It just was everyone understood it was going to be perhaps a little bigger. Our first drafts were undoubtedly bigger than that, you know? But as we got closer to production and we made hard choices it was probably 130.(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)Rotten Tomatoes: Speaking of the script… there was a lot of talk last year when the Academy announced they were going to do an Achievement in Popular Film category [which never went ahead], that they should instead honor stuntwork. And we’ve seen recently that more popular movies, like Black Panther and Mad Max, are getting Oscar recognition, as are their directors and the people who work on costumes, special effects, music… Given the feat you’ve pulled off balancing so many storylines and characters in Infinity War and Endgame, do you think writers of movies like these deserve more awards recognition than they get?Markus: [Laughing] I m glad you ve asked the question. I feel if I answer it too honestly I ll look like a jerk! My hope is that whether or not people realize it now, I think people later might look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe and hopefully they ll look at the last four we ve done with the Russos. That s pretty special storytelling. This cumulative serialized storytelling and the high-wire act that it required of all of us is pretty special.I think to maintain a certain level of character within that, so it s not just a series of explosions… Far be it from me to say what recognition it deserves, but I would love the Academy to be perhaps less knee-jerk in its lack of recognition. I would just say, you know, in all categories, these movies re incredibly hard work. For the industry to write them off as a puff piece seems to deny the incredible amount of technical labor that the people making the movies are putting in. They seem to me a much higher bar to achieve than your average drama. So, there you go.Avengers: Endgame is in theaters April 26, 2019Like this?

欧宝体育官网登录入口 Fall TV is still in full swing this month, which means more and more shows for your viewing pleasure. While you decide which new ones to tune into, catch up on the 13 series below — all of which are Certified Fresh returnees with zombies, superheroes, and brainiacs to spare. Sorry For Your Loss 94% (Facebook Watch)What it is: Elizabeth Olsen stars as Leigh Shaw, a widow in mourning who, unable to bear living in the apartment she shared with husband, quits her job as a magazine writer and moves in with her mother. What follows is a nuanced character study of those left behind in death’s wake.Why you should watch it: It’s not easy to make a show on grief, much less sell it. But I’m Sorry for Your Loss is benefited by its thoughtful and thought-provoking scripts from playwright-turned-series creator Kit Steinkellner and nuanced, heartbreaking performances from Olsen, Janet McTeer as her mother, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi s Kelly Marie Tran as her sister. Plus, it’s perfectly timed at just 30 minutes per episode. Season 2 premiered October 1 on Facebook Watch.Where to watch: Facebook WatchCommitment: Approx. 5 hours (for the first season)Big Mouth 99% (Netflix)What it is: Co-created by Nick Kroll and featuring the voice talents of comedy heavy-hitters like John Mulaney, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, and Jenny Slate, Big Mouth is a coming-of-age series about awkward teens discovering their sexuality through the raging hormones of puberty.Why you should watch it: We’ve seen plenty of naughty comedies in the past, but none of them excavate the triumphs and traumas of pubescent adolescence quite as fearlessly or uproariously as Big Mouth. Season 3 premieres in full on October 4.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 10.5 hours (for the first two seasons, plus a Valentine’s Day special)Peaky Blinders 92% (Netflix)What it is: The going’s rough and tough in this BBC and Netflix co-production from creator Stephen Knight. Charting the rise of the notorious Peaky Blinders gang in post-WWI England, the long-running drama is led by a never-better Cillian Murphy as the fearless, cold-blooded leader, Tommy Shelby. Why you should watch it: Between its production design, its larger-than-life performances, and airtight writing and direction, this period series takes some big swings and lands each one. Murphy delivers as the icy Tommy, and Helen McCrory is stellar as the series’ hard-as-nails matriarch. Throw into the mix a strong, talent-heavy ensemble — including turns from the likes of Tom Hardy and Aidan Gillen — and Peaky Blinders earns its reputation as one of the best series that you just might be sleeping on. Season 5 premieres on October 4 on Netflix.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 24 hours (for the first four seasons)Mr. Robot 94% (USA Network)What it is: This decorated, mind-teaser of a series from creator Sam Esmail is at its core the story of Elliot, played by 2018 Oscar winner Rami Malek in a role that nabbed him an Emmy for best actor after season 1. Elliot is a mentally unstable (see: socially anxious, depressed, and drug-addicted) hacktivist recruited into “fsociety” by one Mr. Robot (Christian Slater). Confused? Intrigued? Just watch it. Why you should watch it: Over the course of three seasons, Mr. Robot has made it near-impossible to look away. Few other series today make for water-cooler fare at work, but Esmail — with the help of Malek, Slater, and an impressive supporting ensemble cast — taps into the cultural consciousness with a premise as timely as it is ambitious. Its fourth and final season premieres on October 6 on USA Network.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 24 hours (for the first three seasons)Supergirl 90% (The CW)What it is: Ever wonder what the other surviving Kryptonians (what few of them are left) are up to while Superman is out there saving the world? Well, turns out his cousin, Kara Zor-El (aka Supergirl) is up to just about the same thing. This is her story.Why you should watch it: It took until the second season for this DC Comics series to really nail down its tone on the CW with star Melissa Benoist and co., but there’s no doubt that it today ranks as one of the most formidable hour-long outings in the superhero comics-to-screen universe. Season 5 premieres on October 6 on The CW.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 65 hours (for the first four seasons)The Walking Dead 80% (AMC)What it is: Don’t know what The Walking Dead is? You may want to check your pulse…Why you should watch it: Based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard’s post-apocalyptic premise of zombies walking the Earth and ending mankind as we know it, the acclaimed series developed by creator Frank Darabont indulges in gore and “what if” fascinations. These are characters brought to life with bone-deep precision from a stable of some of TV’s greatest talents. You just never know when your favorite will bite the dust, but that’s admittedly part of the fun, too. Tune into this season to catch Black Panther star Danai Gurira’s final outing. Season 10 premieres on October 6 on AMC.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 98 hours (for the first nine seasons)All American 96% (The CW)What it is: Inspired by the true story of former NFL-er Spencer Paysinger, this drama series from creator April Blair follows a talented high school football player from South L.A. who’s drafted to play for Beverly Hills — and the social and professional tensions that build when two worlds collide.Why you should watch it: Hailed by the Hollywood Reporter the best new broadcast network drama of 2018, All American bears ingredients from some of our favorite teen and sports dramas of yesteryear while managing to stand out from the pack thanks to its central performances: newcomer Daniel Ezra as the recruited football star Spencer James and Taye Diggs as the NFL star-turned-Beverly Hills coach who sees a future in him. Season 2 premieres on October 7 on The CW.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 12 hours (for the first season)The Flash 89% (The CW)What it is: Grant Gustin is crime scene investigator–turned–crime scene vigilante Barry Allen (aka the Flash), a lightning-enhanced fastest man alive. The story follows Barry’s crime-fighting adventures alongside a group of friends with their own special abilities.Why you should watch it: You don’t gain an adoring following like that of The Flash without bringing edge-of-your-seat comic-book action and suspense, lovable characters and story arcs, and pitch-perfect performances week to week. Equal parts charming and high-octane in all the right ways, this DC Comics offering keeps us coming back for more. Season 6 premieres on October 6 on The CW.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 82 hours (for the first five seasons)Riverdale 84% (The CW)What it is: Riverdale is the latest TV adaptation of the beloved Archie comics of yore — only this time, it gets the CW treatment as a murder mystery–thriller with hot, live-action high schoolers played by KJ Apa, Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart, and Cole Sprouse. This is not your mom and dad’s Archie.Why you should watch it: We’ll say it: Riverdale ranks among the best teen dramas to come out of primetime since Gossip Girl, and it deserves the viewership and brand ubiquity to match. It’s the classic Archie we know with a heaping serving of sex appeal and a dash of True Detective. What’s not to love? Season 4 premieres on October 9 on The CW. Where to watch it: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 42 hours (for the first three seasons)Breaking Bad 96% (AMC)What it is: Walter White is a high school chemistry professor who, after a terminal cancer diagnosis, begins cooking and selling methamphetamine to pay off his mounting medical bills and take care of his family. With that, what starts as a compelling enough premise in Vince Gilligan’s genre-defining character study builds to become one of the greatest series ever to grace the small screen.Why you should watch it: As played by Bryan Cranston (who won a whopping five Emmys for the role), Walter White is one of the most iconic television characters of the 21st century. Meeting him mark for mark is Emmy winner Aaron Paul as his delinquent co-conspirator and cook, Jesse Pinkman. To watch the two of them play off each other while diving deeper into the underbelly of drugs and crime in New Mexico is about as good as TV gets. Binge all five groundbreaking seasons before its much-anticipated feature film bookend, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, premieres on October 11 on Netflix. Where to watch it: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 46.5 hours (for all five seasons)Castle Rock 88% (Hulu)What it is: Set in the fictional, titular Maine town and drawn from the expansive works of Stephen King, this anthology series from creators Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason uses characters both classic and new to re-imagine the author’s best works for the small screen. Season 1 was largely inspired by The Shawshank Redemption, while the second outing looks to pull from Misery.Why you should watch it: With executive producers like King himself and blockbuster filmmaker J.J. Abrams at the helm, you know you’re in for some tricks along with your treats. And with Halloween right around the corner, the return of this hit horror series is sure to get you in the appropriate holiday spirit. Season 1 features standout performances from the likes of Andre Holland, Sissy Spacek, and Bill Skarsgård (himself a King-universe vet thanks to his Pennywise role in the record-breaking It films). Lizzy Caplan promises to light up the screen in season 2, which serves as something of a prequel or origin story for Misery’s demented nurse Annie Wilkes. Get a taste of the King-inspired mayhem before the new season s October 23 premiere on Hulu. Where to watch it: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 8.5 hours (for the first season)The Kominsky Method 93% (Netflix)What it is: Chuck Lorre knows TV, but we ve never seen The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men mastermind tackle something quite like The Kominsky Method, a half-hour, single-cam comedy that follows an aging acting coach and his agent in contemporary Hollywood. Both a stinging comedy on the industry’s lasting truths and a revealing, humorous look at men of a certain age, the series racked up two Golden Globes earlier this year, including Best Musical or Comedy Television Series.Why you should watch it: Few things have been more satisfying over the last few years than watching Hollywood heavy-hitters deliver career-best work on the small screen. Among them are Oscar winners Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin as the central Sandy Kominsky and his longtime agent and friend Norman Newlander, respectively. The pair’s rat-a-tat everyman rapport goes down easy, even when they’re not on their best behavior. Season 2 premieres on October 25 on Netflix. Where to watch it: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 4 hours (for the first season)Silicon Valley 94% (HBO)What it is: This acclaimed HBO comedy from creators John Altschuler, Mike Judge, and Dave Krinsky is the story of wunderkind coder Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) as he and partner Erlich Bachman (T.J. Miller) struggle to get their startup off the ground during Northern California’s tech boom.Why you should watch it: Few shows pack as many laughs-per-episode as Silicon Valley. Through its hilarious portrayal of a company on the rise, it also taps into the real-world “brotopia” of the West Coast’s tech industry in more than just name with an assortment of memorable (and in the case of Middleditch, Emmy-nominated) performances across the board. Its sixth and final season premieres on October 27 on HBO.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, HBO Now, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 23 hours (for the first five seasons)Like this?
