Bernardin brought up the topic, prompting Smith to add, “I m not involved, but I too have heard this, and I ve heard this from very reliable people … I think that s real, I don t think that s a rumor.“How f ing amazing would that be, because you can just literally pick up and keep going. It s not like, ‘Oh, we gotta explain why everyone s older.

A tamer venue might mean “Herogasm” — the exactly-what-it-sounds-like storyline about an island orgy for superheroes — would never be a part of the series. But The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke assures fans Herogasm absolutely will be a part of the show’s next season on Amazon.The super-naughty story from the original comic book series found the superheroes initially believing they were heading off together into space to fight aliens, only to learn they were off to orgy island, where drugs, sex, sexual assault, and a romp between Soldier Boy and Homelander (Antony Starr) happens. Supernatural star Jensen Ackles joins the cast next season as Soldier Boy.Kripke revealed on Twitter that the sixth episode of season 3, titled “Herogasm,” will feature the series’ writers’ twist on the tawdry tale.“From day one, everyone dared me to make this episode.

所以在企鹅看来，LOL手游更像是拳头为了延长游戏寿命的一次精密布局，也是像手游市场进军的关键一步。原本拳头自身就有着非常丰富的赛事经验，如果LOL手游可以提高玩家对于该类游戏的粘度，甚至能拉拢回来一些退坑的玩家，那么这款游戏就是成功的。日后再将LOL手游融入进赛事的一部分，那么拳头的世界赛将成为更难以替代的顶级电竞赛事。 Netflix s Ozark, created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams and showrun by Chris Mundy, follows the downward spiral of a seemingly innocent Chicago accountant, Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman). When his secret money-laundering deal with a Mexican cartel goes south, he decides to move his family to central Missouri to protect himself and the lives of his wife, Wendy (Laura Linney), and kids Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner).Over the course of the show s first two seasons, Marty s various criminal dealings resulted in overly bloody consequences; in fact, the amount of bone-chilling violence featured here, along with the strong performances delivered from each member of the cast, resulted in a bleak, yet action-packed series that surpassed genre expectations.It s no surprise that, upon its initial premiere, Ozark drew heavy comparisons to AMC s Breaking Bad. Each shows a family unit on the verge of collapse as its patriarch — whether it s Bryan Cranston s Walter White or Bateman s Marty Byrde — dabbles, to varying degrees, in the criminal underworld. Add in a cartel menace, snooping law enforcement entities, and the inevitable collateral damage each family faces, it s easy to see the similarities here. But as the story evolved in its second season, Ozark completely broke free from the Breaking Bad mold, as the Byrdes became complicit in Marty s crimes. His deal-with-the-devil became the family business, causing the overall brokenness of their fragile union to grow exponentially.(Photo by Guy D'Alema/Netflix)In the wake of Wendy s infidelity and the constant tension of who may be trying to kill them next, Marty tapped his significant other for help in a move to find solidarity and support. But things have a habit of not going his way, and as Wendy s taste for breaking the law grew, Marty was faced with one more challenge for him to deal with, or try to avoid at all costs in his crime boss–in–training wife.Season 1 didn t exactly dazzle critics, scoring a decent, but not stellar, 70% on the Tomatometer with 69 reviews. The second installment of the Netflix series performed a bit better and is now Certified Fresh at 76% on 45 reviews.Now, with new episodes dropping on Netflix, the question lingers: Is Ozark able to breathe new life into this bleak family drama or is the jig finally up for this bloody money-laundering tale?Here s what critics have to say about season 3 of Ozark.Marty and Wendy s Marital (and Criminal) Conflict Carries the Season(Photo by Steve Deitl/Netflix)Though the Byrde’s situation remains tenuous in some ways, they’re in a better position than ever before in others, the problem being that Marty and Wendy simply don’t see eye to eye on what’s best for their business and their family. As such, the series opens the door for the long-building conflict between the couple to finally come to a head. And the results are some of the best and most tense episodes of the series to date. — Kevin Yeoman, ScreenRantWendy seems hellbent on roaming the same criminal grounds Marty is now too afraid to retread while avoiding (or repeating) his mistakes. She wants to expand the family business. She wants to increase their profile, despite its obvious fallbacks (like attracting the FBI). And when her husband refuses to continue laundering money for the cartel and their other interests, Wendy picks up the pace of her campaign against him. — Andrew Husband, Den Of GeekEvil Laura Linney Is the Best Laura LinneyWendy in particular realizes her penchant for illicit and illegal activities this season, taking the lead of operations against Marty’s wishes, allowing Laura Linney countless moments to dominant a scene, proving exactly why she deserved her Emmy win. — Katie Awad, HypableIn some ways, this run of episodes is all about Wendy, whose new, flinty resolve scared her husband at the end of season two—and who is now putting that mettle to the ultimate stress test. The results are fascinatingly shaded; Wendy realizes she’s in perilously deep, while also digging in further. She’s horrified by the erosion of her ethics, while quietly thrilled by what’s possible once those bonds have been shaken off. This is the most that Linney has been allowed to tear into her character, and it’s thrilling to watch. — Richard Lawson, Vanity FairRuth Langmore Is the Unexpected Heart of the ShowJulia Garner, who won a supporting actress Emmy last year, is the saving grace of this season as Marty’s right hand and most senior employee, Ruth Langmore. Through brashness and bravery, her loyalty to Marty affords her increasing responsibility. Soon she’s running the casino and closer to the apex of danger. Through the loss of her father, uncles and cousins, we get to see Ruth’s vulnerable side. She softens in the face of a potential love interest, and toward Marty, who fills a fatherly void. It’s predictable character arc yet it doesn’t disappoint because it’s the season’s most finely drawn development. — Rachna Raj Kaur, Now TorontoFresh off her Emmy win for Best Supporting Actress last year, Garner remains a standout in this series. Ruth’s foul-mouthed spitfire attitude is still an absolute delight, but Garner continues to flesh out this character with complexity and a moving vulnerability that makes her one of the most interesting characters on the show. — Adam Chitwood, ColliderAfter a fine first season and a so-so second, this show is full of fresh energy. The best character is the casino manager (Emmy-winning Julia Garner), a spitfire you’ll want to meet. — Tim Appelo, AARPSeason 3 Is an Improvement, but Ozark Isn t Taking Any Narrative Chances(Photo by Steve Dietl/Netflix) Ozark lacks that brilliance that only few achieve, but it continues to do more with each season, and always manages to solve with efficiency all the mishaps in which it puts its characters. — Mikel Zorrilla, EspinofEven with a lot of the right pieces in place, “Ozark” remains short-sighted in how it manufactures drama, relying far too often on quick positional pivots and bad decisions to generate immediate conflict, rather than building long-term arcs with more satisfying payoffs. — Ben Travers, IndieWireOzark season 3 premieres on Friday, March 27 on Netflix.

That’s kinda the entire premise of the MonsterVerse’s latest movie, Godzilla Vs. Kong. But which of these two icons of cinema would come out on top if the playing field were…. Dancing with the Stars? Or, say, The Great British Bake Off? Ahead of the new movie’s release, Rotten Tomatoes correspondent Nikki Novak sat down with the huge cast – which includes Millie Bobby Brown, Alexander Skarsgård, Demián Bichir, Rebecca Hall, and more – to see which monster they think would dominate on various reality TV shows. It wasn’t all fun and games, though: Novak also went deep on the long-coming clash of the titans, asking Brown, Skarsgård, Bichir, Hall, and fellow co-stars Julian Dennison, Eiza González, and Kaylee Hottle, what it was like to share the big screen with the big guys and how they worked to bring a bit of heart and soul to all the mayhem. Plus, director Adam Wingard reveals that he wanted the movie to be even bigger (!) and why audiences should keep their eyes peeled for action movie easter eggs.Check out our podcast: Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong About Godzilla: King of the MonstersGodzilla Vs.

The debate over whether professional wrestling is fake has always been there: there’s no denying that people are body slammed to the ground. But are they actually hurt and was it all planned out and part of a larger, character-driven narrative?Or, as Jack Spade, Stephen Amell’s lead in the new Starz drama Heels, puts it at one point: “We know that they know and they know that we know that they know.”In Heels, which premieres August 15, Amell plays one half of a Georgia wrestling dynasty. The older, more upstanding, brother to Alexander Ludwig’s Ace, Jack is married to wife Staci (Alison Luff) and they have a little boy. He has a good day job selling lawn mowers and she sings in the church choir; meanwhile, Ace lives in his childhood bedroom and spends his days and nights partying and bedding women like he’s still the all-star athlete he was in high school.(Photo by Starz)But in the ring? Jack is a “heel,” or the antagonist in the wrestling matches who taunts and provokes the crowd and his opponents. Ace is the ripped, blond Adonis, or “face,” who represents the belief that good conquers evil. Everyone in their small town knows not only the backstory between their characters, but also that of their family. This includes the legacy of their father, another local wrestling giant whose tragic death is explored in the show. References to Bible characters Cain and Abel are obvious and mentioned.“I wanted to explore something where conflicts outside of the ring — real-world, unscripted conflicts — bleed into the scripted conflicts inside of the ring,” creator Michael Waldron told Rotten Tomatoes. “To me, two brothers — one s a good guy in the ring, but maybe not such a good guy outside of it, and the other’s a bad guy in the ring, but perhaps a more decent guy outside of it — just felt like good compelling math for a show.”Waldron, who does have a positive relationship with his own brother, has conquered this territory before. He’s also the creator of the Disney+ series Loki, which focuses on Tom Hiddleston’s less respected sibling of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He tells Rotten Tomatoes that these themes entice him because “the cool thing about family conflict is you don t get to choose your family. But they re the people you re closest to in the world.”“I think people … relate to warring brothers,”Heels showrunner Mike O’Malley added. “The tragedy of Cain and Abel is that it’s God saying to Cain Where is Abel? and Cain saying ‘I m not my brother s keeper.’ This is what this story is about, especially when it has a father who abandoned them and a mother who isn t in support of what they re doing because of [how] this league did damage, emotionally, to their father.”(Photo by Starz)These dynamics are even stronger in the world of wrestling. Ludwig’s Ace gets to have the glory and worship of adoring fans. He also has a valet, or female sidekick, in the form of Kelli Berglund’s Crystal Tyler — an extremely talented wrestler in her own right who doesn’t get any recognition (or a locker room) of her own due to the industry’s inherent sexism. But it’s Amell’s Jack who, like all heels, actually calls the shots. Jack also writes the scripts, which means he has control over what storylines he, his brother and the other wrestlers get to tell.“It does seem like [it takes] a special kind of person to want to be a heel,” Amell said. “There is something somewhat disconcerting about people really viciously, actively, booing you in this sort of vitriolic way.”He says that, back in the day, being a heel “was a real sacrifice that you would have to make” because “you don t make as much money from merchandise because people don t buy as much of your stuff.”But, Amell says, quoting a line from the show, “you only love the good guys as much as you hate the bad.” In fact, one of the most scene-stealing characters in Heels is Chris Bauer’s gaudy and bawdy Wild Bill Hancock, a former wrestling star from the area who made in the big leagues and is now a scout who may or may not be trusted. In other words, he’s a heel both in and out of the ring. And he has an interest in Ludwig’s Ace.“I think that there s this animalistic quality in all of us that are enamored with heels,” Ludwig said. “Because to get to a place where you re comfortable not needing anything, or caring about anything, that s kind of fascinating and exciting. What made me so attracted to the character [of Ace] was simply that he s not in a place where he s secure enough. He s trying to find his own place in the world. And, and, you know, looming over them is this tragedy that is their father s death.”The former Vikings star also acknowledged that this is not the first time he’s been on a show about feuding siblings and birthrights. But “every story has been told since the beginning of time. It s how you tell it. The same way as that every song has been sung. [It s] just how you sing and how you make it,” he said.(Photo by Starz)Both Amell and Ludwig trained to do as much of their own stunts as the show’s executives would allow. Amell even overshot a Coast to Coast (a wrestling move involving a giant leap and a dropkick) and suffered a compression fracture in his vertebras. But, the former Arrow star pointed out, “you can t hide in a wrestling ring … if someone s in a hood and a mask, it s pretty easy to double them.”“It was probably the most painful experience I ve ever been through and it’s certainly the most training we ve ever done,” Ludwig says of the rigorous practices. “In turn, it made us all bond together because we realized just what these men go through and how hard we had to work to make this really look real.”Since they are both Canadian actors playing Southern American characters, they also took dialect instruction. The show is also premiering at a time when both the sport of wrestling is changing and there has been a renewed interest in depicting it on screen, as with 2019 film Fighting With My Family, Netflix s GLOW, and this year s NBC series Young Rock.(Photo by Starz)Waldron began conceiving the story in 2013 when he says the “idea of trying to build a little indie wrestling promotion into the biggest thing in the world to compete against the WWE was especially crazy, because there was simply no infrastructure.” Events that he says used to be recorded on “sh y handheld, camcorders” are now done with GoPros and “anybody can put on a wrestling event that really feels top flight.”And shows like GLOW and Young Rock depict the world of wrestling, but they’re set decades in the past.“I like making a show after the wrestling star has burned bright and maybe it s burned at its brightest,” Waldron said. “And now these guys are living in the shadow of all of the giants that came before.”Heels premieres at 9 p.m. on Sunday, August 15 on Starz.
Whether they call it a reboot, remake or reimagining, television producers love to capitalize on nostalgia with fresh takes on beloved programming. But this doesn’t automatically mean the new versions are any good.Luckily, this isn’t the problem for the new take on Saved By the Bell, Peacock’s update – they prefer to go with option three and call it a “reimagining” – of the teen sitcom that ran from 1989 to 1993 on NBC (and then in syndicated reruns for near-perpetuity). The update, which released all 10 of its first season episodes in November on the streaming service, is Certified Fresh with critics calling it “a throwback that looks forward, embracing the past while living in the now” or arguing that it works because it’s self-aware and because it’s “legitimately funny and good-hearted in a time that s rife with cynicism.”So it wasn t much of a surprise when the series was renewed for a 10-episode second season.(Photo by Chris Haston/Peacock)Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, who appeared in the original series as the popular, progressive and overachieving Jessie Spano and who now returns to the show as an older, wiser and more accomplished version of the character, says credit for all this praise is due to the new series’ showrunner, Tracey Wigfield.She “could not have dreamed of someone better to bring this back with the right tone and the relevant issues, she told Rotten Tomatoes after the series November premiere. The 30 Rock and The Mindy Project alum grew up watching the first series take on topical issues like environmental awareness, women’s rights and – as Berkley Lauren’s Jessie herself immortalized when she became “so excited” and then “so scared” when she got hooked on caffeine pills – addiction within a neon haze of pranks, fake bands, large cell phones and Mark-Paul Gosselaar s lead Zack Morris occasional ability to stop time and break the fourth wall.(Photo by Trae Patton/Peacock)The new version follows what happens when California’s idiot mayor (Gosselaar reprising his role as the continually-failing-upward Zack) botches the school budgets and kids from a high school in a lower-income neighborhood join Zack and Jessie’s alma mater, Bayside High, after their school is closed. Class warfare, overprotective parenting, preconceived racial and social biases and more come into play (character actress Dana Powell guest-stars as a Bayside mom with a savior complex named Joyce Whitelady).But some things about high school never change, no matter the decade. And this show is full of Easter eggs and references to the classic version. The homage is seen most starkly in new show s inclusion of the original stars and its update on Berkley Lauren and Gosselaar’s characters, as well as their then-paramours Tiffani Thiessen’s Kelly Kapowski, and Mario Lopez’s A.C. Slater (now, respectively, First Lady of California Kelly Morris and the high school’s football coach).(Photo by Casey Durkin/Peacock)Or when it comes to recreating inevitable teen-aged infatuations. Josie Totah’s Lexi Haddad-DeFabrizio is a power-obsessed Type A personality who has long harbored feelings for her best friend, Jessie’s oft-clueless jock son, Jamie (Belmont Cameli). This dynamic is so similar to the Jessie-Slater pairing from back in the day that, in the episode where Lexi admits her feelings, her hair is styled in long blond waves – a modern-day take on the spirals of curls and big bows that Jessie used to wear (and, quite honestly, is sometimes seen sported even now).For Berkley Lauren, who is also a producer for this reimagining, it also means a chance to explore what happens when an ambitious teen girl grows into an educated and successful adult. Now the Jill Biden of Bayside High, Jessie is not only the school’s counselor, but she also holds a Ph.D. in educational psychology, is a best-selling author and is known in some circles for her TED Talks.“Jessie, at the time, was such a progressive character on television — especially for young woman — and a character who has such a strong vision for herself,” Berkley Lauren said. “She was all about success and accomplishments and what she was going to pursue … I felt protective and that I wanted to let [the fans] know what she actually did do and what she actually did go for and accomplish.”
When it comes to Pixar’s flagship movie series, there’s no such thing as sequelitis or franchise fatigue.
