亚博网站首页采用百度引擎6（Baidu 9）The Mandalorian comes roaring back with the first episode of season 2. Chapter 9: The Marshal serves up loving shots of The Child ( Baby Yoda ), a monster of a challenge for Din Djarin/The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal), an engaging new character played by Hollywood s favorite lawman and gunslinger Timothy Olyphant, and plenty of shoot- em-up action.Here’s what critics are saying about episode 1 of The Mandalorian season 2:Is The Child Still Adorable?(Photo by Lucasfilm/Disney+)“Even with Mando kicking serious ass for most of the episode, the best part of the premiere was, naturally, Baby Yoda.” Amanda Mullen, Culturess“This episode of The Mandalorian is pretty much Jaws. It s Jaws plus Baby Yoda reaction shots. What more could you want?” Ben Allen, GQ Magazine [UK]“This week s adventure is as simple as they come, and, as expected, Baby Yoda s as cute as ever.” Jack Shepherd, SFX Magazine“The Mandalorian has returned to save 2020 with a stellar opening episode helmed by Jon Favreau, a wonderful performance from an unexpected co-star, and plenty of Baby Yoda cuteness.” Josh Wilding, ComicBookMovie.com How Does The Marshal Hold Up Next to the High Bar Set by Season 1?(Photo by Lucasfilm/Disney+)“Hopefully, Favreau and Co. continue to experiment and open up this universe. The Marshal celebrates what you love about Star Wars and makes you love it more. It provides more understanding of what we ve seen and who we thought we knew.” Preston Barta, Fresh Fiction“[The Mandalorian] proves with one of its best episodes yet that it still has a lot of flair, inspiration, and jetpack fuel to go around.” Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com“It s such a simple premise and it s been done more times than we can count, but in this age of convoluted storytelling and It s really a 10-hour movie seasons of television, it feels fresh and, in its own way, kind of revolutionary.” Tom Fitzgerald and Lorenzo Marquez, Tom Lorenzo“ The Marshal doesn t feel long. There are probably some spots that could have been tightened up, but on the whole it was very much of a piece with how the show worked so well a year ago.” Alan Sepinwall, Rolling Stone“The first episode, Chapter 9: The Marshal, was full of highlights, marking a strong start to the show s sophomore run.” Amanda Mullen, Culturess“You can relax The Mandalorian Season 2 isn t about to skimp on the action, and it s of the same quality as it was in the previous outing.” Jonathon Wilson, Ready Steady CutHow Are the New Characters?(Photo by Lucasfilm/Disney+)“We don t need gimmicky cameos by movie characters to tie in with the saga as a whole, and The Marshal offers something arguably much richer.” Richard Trenholm, CNET“As the episode’s title, ‘The Marshal’, might suggest, a marshal with whom to contend, played winningly by Timothy Olyphant, who has form in the lawman department. Throwing Mando in with someone as laconic and charming as Olyphant even brings something out of the taciturn hero. At one point he comes dangerously close to making what could be considered to be, after much scrutiny, a joke.” Chris Hewitt, Empire Magazine“[Olyphant] does a terrific job alongside Pedro Pascal s formidable bounty hunter and is someone we definitely hope to see more of in this series (or others). The actor in question is one of the most talented working in Hollywood today, though not someone we see anywhere near as often as we should on screen. With The Mandalorian, however, they re bound to now have a whole new legion of fans. ” Josh Wilding, ComicBookMovie.comGood Easter Eggs? (Photo by Lucasfilm/Disney+)“Despite my love of all the fun Easter Eggs, we should hope that The Mandalorian doesn t get too overwhelmed by bringing in wider Star Wars lore and forget what makes it work so well the simple story of a gruff mercenary and a super-powered alien muppet.” Huw Fullerton, Radio Times“Even with so many nods to Star Wars past, The Mandalorian’s not overstuffed.” Jack Shepherd, SFX Magazine
Richard Jewell (2019) 77% Back in 1996, smack dab in the middle of the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, a pipe bomb exploded in Centennial Olympic Park, killing one person and injuring dozens more. The man who originally discovered the bomb, a security guard named Richard Jewell, alerted the authorities and helped evacuate spectators to safety, and he became a hero in the process. Well, for a few days, anyway, until reports began to surface that he was a person of interest in the FBI s investigation, at which point Jewell underwent a grueling trial by media that changed his life forever. Clint Eastwood s latest directorial effort, Richard Jewell, is a dramatization of these events, with Paul Walter Hauser playing the title character at the center of the whirlwind, Sam Rockwell as his old friend and eventual attorney, and Kathy Bates as Jewell s mother Bobi they re the good guys. On the other end, we have Jon Hamm as an unscrupulous G-man and Olivia Wilde as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writer who broke the story of the FBI s interest in Jewell. It s an impressive cast, and critics say each performer offers striking work under Eastwood s steady direction, even if the story itself has been somewhat oversimplified for dramatic effect. Eastwood clearly has a message on his mind in Richard Jewell, and he largely succeeds in communicating it clearly and effectively. He s in comfortable territory here, and it works to his advantage; fans of his work should find plenty to enjoy. 大极品传奇手游2021最新是一款可以爆大极品的高爆传奇手游，大极品传奇手游2021最新中经典的版本，精彩纷呈的玩法，装备保值，挂机收益高，挑起战火的纷飞，大量的副本作战，赢取更多极品奖励吧！
The CW s iZombie, now in its fifth and final season, proved to be the little comic book TV show that could.Based on the DC/Vertigo comic by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred, it tells the tale of Liv Moore (Rose McIver), a medical resident who ends up becoming a zombie at a party. But unlike the typical walking dead of other movies, TV shows, and comics, Liv can keep her wits about her thanks to a steady diet of brains, whose personalities and memories she absorbs. Abandoning her old life — and ditching all-American heartthrob fiance Major Lilywhite (Robert Buckley) in the process — she realized her affliction could be an asset. After getting a job at the county morgue to feed her new brain habit, she and her boss, Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli), team up with Seattle police officer Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) to solve murders by eating the brains of victims and accessing their memories to find out who killed them.The show grew from there with an ongoing arc about the origin of the zombie virus and, eventually, the world learning of their existence. By renewing the series for a fifth and final season, The CW allowed executive producer Rob Thomas the chance to wrap up Liv’s story and reveal the fate of New Seattle.(Photo by Michael Courtney/The CW)When Rotten Tomatoes visited the set of iZombie last November, co-star Robert Buckley joked that he had not heard the series was coming to an end.“This day keeps getting worse and worse,” he quipped. At the same time, his joke was somewhat based in truth: “This is the first year where I haven t asked ahead for what s going on. In previous seasons, the writing staff clued him in on their plans for Major, who was eventually also turned into a zombie. This time around, he (and star McIver, too) wanted to be in the dark and enjoy the suspense as the series built to its ultimate ending.“I don t know how it ends. I don t know if we re going to leave the door cracked [for a revival],” Buckley said.Although the ending was still unknown to both actors at the time of our interview, which took place in the middle of season 5 s filming schedule, McIver said she hoped Liv and Major were finally able commit to one other — at least in a more permanent fashion than the way the show has toyed with reuniting the couple in the past.“I think most romances — most relationships that I ever seek to believe in — have some sort of chaos that have led into them,” McIver said. “I think it makes you know each other that much better. You ve been friends as well. The kind of fairy tale illusion is shed, and that s good, because I think you don t really know somebody when you think that they re perfect.”Buckley recalled talking to Thomas about Major and Liv’s rapport before they shot the pilot. At the time, the executive producer compared them to Sam (Ted Danson) and Diane (Shelly Long) from Cheers, a.k.a. one of TV s all-time great “will they or won’t they?” couples. When he pressed his boss further about getting the two characters together for real, Buckley recalled Thomas saying that perhaps the two would finally make a go for it somewhere down the line, like in season 5.(Photo by Michael Courtney/The CW)Of course, romance is never an easy thing for the two characters, particularly in light of the insane obstacles they ve faced over the last several years. In season 4, Major killed Chase Graves (Jason Dohring) to save Liv s life, and ascended to the head of the Filmore-Graves private military corporation. With him as the new commander and Liv continuing on as Renegade, the two make an uneasy alliance to ensure brain matter continues to flow into New Seattle and prevent a zombie holocaust. And though it might be McIver’s wish to see them together, Liv and Major still have plenty to work through.“We ve forgiven each other, but you don t forget all of the difficulty that you ve gotten through,” she said. “So it s not like, ‘Oh he s straight back in, best friends, everything s smooth.’ It s a very complicated thing.”Beyond the characters personal issues, though, both have a keen interest in keeping the U.S. government from nuking New Seattle and its zombie population off the map.“We both want what s best for the people around us and the people we love,” McIver said. “I wouldn t say we ve banded together at every turn, but there s a definite respect for the way that we re handling it and the information that s shared between us.”Buckley agreed with that assessment.“We re both just trying to protect people and champion justice and all that, but we both found ourselves beginning on different paths and we ve just stayed on them,” he said, adding, “I think our common goal is the same.” He also added that the death of Chase will allow Major to be less rigid. “I think Major was being a good soldier in some of that, which was a bit extreme. [Now] there s a bit more flexibility.”(Photo by Bettina Strauss/The CW)The situation in New Seattle as season 5 begins is intense, but McIver promised the show will still find the funny.“[The] stakes are really high. The humor, though, is still really high, which I think is great,” she said. And despite Liv holding onto her role as Renegade and smuggling people into New Seattle, she will still have time to help Clive with cases.“I feel like I m pulling out all the stops,” she said of Liv’s transitions into other people’s personas this season, one of which she teased as “Salsa Brain.”“You re not metering yourself anymore. You re not playing this long game If we ve got ideas, [we] use them,” she continued. “If we have things that we haven t played with the other characters we re using them now. It s been pretty full-on, like, full gung-ho.”While being a zombie is a now an important facet of Liv s existence, there is always the possibility that the cure Ravi discovered in Isobel’s (Izabela Vidovic) brain could lead to a new way of life for the New Seattle zombies. But McIver is ambivalent about using the cure to offer Liv and Major a human ending.“It doesn t serve all of our metaphors,” she said.On the show, zombies symbolize “minorities or people who ve been marginalized” and offering a widespread cure would suggest that marginalization is like a disease to be eliminated and not a condition to be understood.(Photo by Jordon Nuttall/The CW)“I think it s great for the zombies to still be able to exist,” McIver said. “At this point, I feel like [it s] similar about humans eating meat. It would be great if an alternative came that was grown. You know how they re trying to make fake meat? An equivalent of that would be a really good thing, I feel like, for zombies — a fake brain compound.”Buckley said he would prefer for Major to remain a zombie as well.“I think when he became a zombie it sort of gave him a sense of purpose again in advocating for the less fortunate,” he explained. “Leave him in the minority and have him be their champion.”The two actors both reiterated that these are merely their hopes for the conclusion, as neither had seen the finale script. Nonetheless, it seemed McIver may not be ready to let Liv go. While McIver wore a wig while playing the character, she mentioned that she had recently dyed her hair blonde and cut it short, her character s trademark look. I didn t look anything like Liv the whole time I shot, she said. Now I m, like, clearly finding it hard to say goodbye.”iZombie airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.Like this?

During a one-and-a-half-day visit to the Pixar campus in Emeryville – part of the California East Bay golden triangle of art-driven cities including Oakland and Berkeley – over a dozen supervisors, writers, and digital artisans hosted workshops and seminars about their upcoming June movie to answer the question that s on all our minds: Why? Why make another Toy Story? Especially when Toy Story 3 felt like the end; Andy passing his toys on to the next generation as he moves to college, the camera panning up to the sky, a bookend with the same clouds that opened the Toy Story back in 1995. Toy Story 3 delivered a mint-in-box rarity in today s world of tempting serialized storytelling and cinematic universes: A sense of finality, and closure. Why mess with that?Minor spoiler warning: This article describes the opening scene of Toy Story 4!It started in 2014.We re sitting in a board room with Pixar character modelers, directing animators, and story supervisors and artists. Like the rest of the world, they tell us, Pixar had moved on from Toy Story, not expecting to see the franchise s characters on the screen again, outside of shorts and television specials. Monsters University had just released. They were gearing up for the one-two punch of Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur in 2015. Amidst the streamlined chaos, an impossible idea persisted: That there was still more Toy Story to tell, and it deserved to be on the biggest screens possible across the world. The idea turned to talk, turned to pencil against paper, turned to cursors across monitors, turned into crews and planning and development, until Toy Story 4 moved into The Steve Jobs Building, the campus section where movies are officially in production.BO PEEP FINALLY GETS HER DUEPixar story supervisor Valerie LaPointe tells the room that there are people at Pixar who, as children, had their world expanded watching Toy Story in theaters in 1995, who now get to work on the fourth, and understand the legacy they re molding on their computers every day. To LaPointe s left are five women, who minutes before had each spoken about their role on TS4, nodding in agreement. They are a crucial creative force at Pixar, and instrumental in forging the emotional ace of the new movie: Bo Peep.The porcelain lamp with her flock of sheep (voiced, as always, by Annie Potts) had a minor but memorable role in the original Toy Story as Woody s flame, with less to do in Toy Story 2. And while the main characters got their glorious (seeming) sendoff in Toy Story 3, Bo wasn t there at all, having been reduced to a sacrificial plot point to motivate and illuminate her boyfriend s emotional pain. Clearly, there was more story to tell, because her story hadn t been told at all.Toy Story 4 opens with a flashback. It s nighttime at Andy s house, in the middle of a downpour, set a bit before Toy Story 3. R/C is outside caught in a gutter torrent, spinning his wheels to keep from getting sucked into a sewer drain. Bo and Woody, always the contingency planners, execute a rescue mission that saves R/C and leaves Woody momentarily underneath a car in the driveway. Everything looks photo-decadent: the rain, the lighting, the subtle scuff on Buzz s plastic armor plating. Pixar has found new vistas to paint once again.Then, the bombshell: Molly, Andy s sister, is growing up and Bo s watch has ended – she s being carried in a box to the car, and soon to be off into the great donated unknown. Bo has accepted her fate, having long since known a porcelain lamp doesn t have quite the shelf life of a talking cowboy or space commando. Woody is frantic, and he attempts to get her out of the box. Bo does the opposite, offering a place beside her. Just as Bo knows her destination, Woody knows his is entwined with Andy, and as the car peels off, he s left in the driveway splintered by the rain. It s not quite Up territory in terms of Pixar opening-scene tearjerkers, but considering we ve known these characters for nearly 25 years, it s damn close.EYES PEELED FOR PLENTY OF PIXAR EASTER EGGSFor eagle-eyed viewers, something may catch your attention: The car s license plate – always cinematic fertile ground for easter eggs, especially in Pixar films. RMR F97, the plates read. But what does it mean? It is an easter egg! director Josh Cooley laughed during our press conference. On Toy Story 2, there was someone who worked on the show that accidentally deleted the movie from the render farm, producer Mark Nielsen said, who worked modeling and shading on Toy Story 2. That was the command on the computer that deleted the film. Galyn Susman, who was an early producer on this film, was on maternity leave and had a backup of the movie at her house, and brought it back to Pixar and restored it, added producer Jonas Rivera. It felt appropriate that the license plate on the car that takes Bo away would be the same that killed Toy Story 2. From the filmmakers words and the footage and material shown, it becomes apparent Toy Story 4 will probably become the most easter egg-laden movie the studio has ever produced. At one point, Woody and Forky – a spork with googly eyes and pipe-cleaner arms come to life, who exists as his own existential quandary – end up in an antique store. Full of neat knick-knacks and weathered baubles, it s a set piece that puts Pixar s detailed creativity on full display, not to mention plenty of references to their past.Look for a sign that says Papa Rivera s, a reference to the aforementioned producer. The Eggman Movers truck, around since the first Toy Story, makes a comeback, long known to be tied to art director Ralph Eggleston. From Finding Nemo, you can see the tiki heads from the fish tank on some shelves.There s steel decoration for Catmull s Brews, named after Ed Catmull, who s been with the company since the beginning and is retiring the month after Toy Story 4 is released. The Catmull sign hangs over a pinball machine whose interior has been turned into a miniature nightclub; Tinny, from the 1988 short Tin Toy, is the bouncer. (And for you pinheads out there, the machine was modeled after Bally s 1977 Black Jack – and we saw that tucked away in a room at Pixar HQ when we were doing a workshop making our own Forkys.)A FEMALE VILLAIN, FULL-ON BODY HORROR, AND BOO?Elsewhere in the antique store, Woody and Forky meet Gabby-Gabby, an angelic 50s doll and the first female antagonist of the series. Gabby Gabby commands a league of dapper and wholly unsettling ventriloquist dummies who do her bidding, like trying to rip out Woody s voice box to replace her own broken one. To set the body horror mood, Gabby Gabby puts on a record playing music from Coco, the vinyl pressed on the prestigious Chalupa Records.And that s not the only Coco reference. Part of the road trip includes visiting a carnival fair across the street from the antique store, which is where Woody reunites with Bo, who has been leading a joyous, independent, if not occasionally challenging life as a lost toy. One of the carnival game prizes is the guitar from Coco. And who s joined in among the festivities? A teenage Boo from Monsters, Inc, who appears to have not changed her style since 2001. Hey, purple shirts and scrunchies are eternal!And all those easter eggs were from less than 30 minutes of footage.As Toy Story 4 has been in the works for the last five years, the studio has seen some major changes. Ed Catmull is retiring. Beloved animator Bud Luckey passed away (he was all over the classic Boundin short). And founder John Lasseter left in scandal. It’s been a different time from their heyday, when Pixar racked up 11 Certified Fresh movies between Toy Story and 3; then a record, now overtaken by Marvel Studios current 14. During the visit, it s clear here was a movie being made by people both filmmaker and fan, who see this as a continuation of the golden age. Maybe they re always like this with their movies.For anyone born after 2010, this is the first chance to watch a new Toy Story on the big screen. It could even be their first movie theater experience ever. That s quite the gift. It s the same one Pixar offered in 1995, and many people who took it back then, grew up, got a job there, made Toy Story 4, talked to a bunch of press, and now get to offer it up to a new generation. Returning to the toy cowboy who s devoted to the joy of others, Pixar has become the studio it always was: A house of toil and dream, where old things find new life.Like this?

To really appeal to viewers unfamiliar with the deep canon of The Dark Crystal, as well as die-hard fans, the creators went out of their way to pay intricate attention to the design of each character and every piece of scenery. That means employing hundreds, or even thousands of workers, Leterrier explained, to make wigs, to punch holes for hair into the creatures, and more. It s an important part of the process that Netflix will celebrate, releasing a documentary going behind-the-scenes of Age of Resistance, that’ll appear as the season’s 11th episode. For a show that Henson describes as “a maker spectacular,” this announcement is a no-brainer. The amount of craft that goes into the making of the puppets, and the guys who operate them, we just arrive [on set] and it s sort of there, Egerton said of his responsibility as an actor on the series. The work that everyone else has done kind of feeds your performance, really. We really are just the top layer of a very tall cake. (Photo by Netflix)Hamill, who voices the iconic Skeksis known as the Scientist, couldn t stop raving about being a part of the series. What I loved was how daring and dark it was as opposed to the other projects associated with the Muppets. It s really come into its own. The script for Age of Resistance is very, very good. I don t care about the trappings of the salary or whatever, but you look for projects that are a challenge and stuff you d like to see, and it definitely falls into that category. Hamill will surely be a big draw for the show — his enthusiasm for the show is really quite contagious. But as gross and visceral as the Skeksis can get, Age of
This week in TV news: a new Stephen King adaptation, a Marvel crossover, and casting updates for Joss Whedon’s HBO sci-fi project The Nevers, DC Universe s Titans, season 3 of The Sinner, and more.Stephen King s The Stand Gets a New Miniseries — and a New EndingCBS All Access has planned a limited event series based on Stephen King s The Stand, for which the author will write a final chapter not found in the book. The cast includes Westworld s James Marsden as working-class factory man Stu Redman, Aquaman s Amber Heard as the conflicted Nadine Cross, Odessa Young as the young, pregnant Frannie Goldsmith, and Henry Zaga as the deaf and mute newfound leader Nick Andros.The series takes place a post-apocalyptic world decimated by plague where the forces of good and evil, and the fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old other Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man, per the official description.The Stand’s previous adaptations include a 1994 miniseries that starred Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, and Rob Lowe and a 2008 Marvel comic series.The Man Who Fell to Earth Series in the Works From Star Trek: Discovery Producers(Photo by Courtesy Everett Collection)The Man Who Fell to Earth is turning into a TV series. Based on the novel of the same name and the 1976 film starring David Bowie, the series will follow an alien who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future, per the official announcement.“Walter Tevis’ visionary novel gave us a tech god Willy Wonka from another planet, brought to life by David Bowie’s legendary performance, that foretold Steve Jobs’ and Elon Musk’s impacts on our world. The series will imagine the next step in our evolution, seen through the eyes of an alien who must learn what it means to become human, even as he fights for the survival of his species,” co-showrunners Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet said in a statement. Kurtzman and Lumet are both producers on CBS All Access Star Trek: Discovery.Marvel s Runaways Meet Cloak DaggerMarvel s teen superhero shows are staging a crossover: In the upcoming third season of the Hulu drama Runaways, the main characters from the Freeform drama Cloak Dagger will meet up with the titular teen superhero team. Details about the story line have not yet been revealed.“It’s so fun being able to do something that revels in the Mighty Marvel Manner! Having these young heroes cross over allows fans of both shows to see the adventure everyone has been waiting for and we’ve only hinted at,” said Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb in a statement announcing the news.Season 3 of Runaways premieres all 10 episodes December 13 on Hulu.Evil Is More Than an Exorcism of the Week The CBS drama Evil, which follows a psychologist, a priest-in-training, and a carpenter who investigate the backlog of unexplained mysteries in the Catholic church, is — as seen in the trailer above — much scarier than any series the network has aired before. But just because it s a procedural doesn t mean the series will feel the same from week to week. We are trying to avoid exorcism of the week, co-creator Robert King told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Thursday. The second episode is about miracles. It’s about those question marks in life that you don’t quite know how they happen — a school where all the girls at the school start laughing, and it seems to be almost viral. I would say the other thing is you’re looking at life and you’re seeing evil, not with a capital E but with a small e — the boss who throws things at his employees. Where does that fit in? So that is really what our people are [doing]: Just figuring out what is genetically based villainy, if you want to use that word instead of evil, and what is something that’s even bigger, something more supernatural? But also looking at hope.

This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as The Flash, Rubik s Cube, and Spamalot.This WEEK S TOP STORYRICK AND MORTY PRODUCER MICHAEL WALDRON IS WRITING KEVIN FEIGE S STAR WARS MOVIE(Photo by Image Group LA/Getty Images)At their big investor day event last month, Disney announced that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins would be directing Star Wars: Rogue Squadron for late 2023, and that Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) is also still writing his own Star Wars movie. The Star Wars feature film that was not even remotely mentioned (to the point that one might have assumed it might be cancelled) was the project announced in September, 2019 as being produced by Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige (though Kathleen Kennedy did clarify that it was a ways off ). We can now guess that maybe Disney just wasn t quite ready to announce this week s news, which is that Feige s Star Wars project is now to be written by Rick and Morty (Fresh at 94%) producer Michael Waldron. Besides Rick and Morty (and HarmonQuest), Waldron has two more direct connections to Feige and Marvel, as he is also writing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (3/25/2022), and was also the head writer on the upcoming Disney+ show Loki (expected to start streaming in May, 2021). In related news (sort of), Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot also recently signed with Warner Bros. for Wonder Woman 3, although it s unclear if it will be produced before or after Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, or what it might be about. As for Waldron, he is also expected to work on season 2 of Loki, which is also news because Loki was previously thought to be a one-season miniseries.Other Top Headlines1. EX MACHINA DIRECTOR RECRUITS I M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS STAR FOR MEN (Photo by Mary Cybulski/©Netflix)Although English filmmaker Alex Garland may still lack the name brand recognition of some of his colleagues, his science fiction work both as screenwriter (28 Days Later, Sunshine) and director (Ex Machina, Annihilation) has consistently been Fresh on the Tomatometer for 20 years. For his next film, Garland may be switching things up a little bit, as the project called Men is described as a low-budget horror film set in the U.K. about a young woman who goes on a solo vacation to the English countryside after the death of her husband. The two main stars will be Irish actress Jessie Buckley (Netflix s I m Thinking of Ending Things, Certified Fresh at 81%) and England s Rory Kinnear (probably best known as the current iteration of MI6 suit Bill Tanner in the James Bond franchise). Men will be distributed by A24, which was also the company behind Ex Machina.2. MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL TO RETURN AS SPAMALOT MOVIE (Photo by Everett Collection)Plenty of comedians make the jump from TV to film, but few have a hit that is held in quite as high esteem as 1975 s Monty Python and the Holy Grail (Certified Fresh at 97%). In 2005, a stage musical called Spamalot, adapted from the movie by Monty Python member Eric Idle, made its debut on Broadway, and to date, the musical has earned over 5 million during its various worldwide runs. In 2018, 20th Century Fox acquired the rights to make a Spamalot movie, but the project appeared to stall after the Fox film properties were acquired by Disney in 2019. Instead, Paramount Pictures has now stepped in to actually produce the Spamalot movie, which arrives at Paramount from Fox fully developed, with a screenplay by Eric Idle and the musical s choreographer Casey Nicholaw attached to possibly make his feature film directorial debut (depending upon which gets produced first, Spamalot or the movie adaptation of the Mean Girls stage musical). It s not yet known if any of the various stage performers will reprise their roles in the movie, but some of those possible stars include Tim Curry (Arthur), Hank Azaria (Lancelot), and David Hyde Pierce (Sir Robin).3. HBO STAR NOMA DUMEZWENI TO PLAY NEW CHARACTER IN THE LITTLE MERMAID (Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)As Disney continues to adapt their classic animated movies as new live-action films, their approach has varied as to exactly how closely the premise and casts stick to the original film, from pretty spot on (The Lion King, The Jungle Book) to quite, quite different (Mulan, Aladdin). Until this week, most of the casting we d heard about The Little Mermiad suggested something closer to the former, as all of the confirmed characters seemed to be directly from the original 1989 film (Certified Fresh at 93%). To refresh the reader s memory, the announced cast so far includes Grown-ish co-star Halle Bailey as Ariel, Jonah Hauer-King as Prince Eric, Awkwafina as Scuttle, Javier Bardem as Triton, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, and Melissa McCarthy as the evil octopus sea witch Ursula. To that list, we can now add Noma Dumezweni (HBO s The Undying), except that she will be playing an entirely new character who wasn t in the 1989 original. Walt Disney Pictures has not yet scheduled The Little Mermaid, but we can probably presume it will be sometime in either 2022 or 2023. Dumezweni previously worked with Disney as Miss Penny Farthing in 2018 s Mary Poppins Returns (Certified Fresh at 79%).4. TIFFANY HADDISH TO STAR IN ALIEN INVASION FILM LANDSCAPE WITH INVISIBLE HAND (Photo by Michele K. Short/Universal Pictures)One of the stories that broke during the Weekly Ketchup s three week holiday break was about Brad Pitt s Plan B making a deal with MGM for their adaptation of the dark, surreal comedy sci-fi novel Landscape with Invisible Hand, set in a future after the Earth has been invaded by an alien force. (This news came three years after Plan B first acquired the rights to the novel in 2017, but slow development isn t that unusual.) The MGM deal may have helped Landscape with Invisible Hand continue to move forward, because we can also already now report that Tiffany Haddish is in final negotiations with MGM and Plan B to star in Landscape with Invisible Hand, although it s unclear which role she will play. The premise is described as being about two human teenagers who come up with a scheme to make money in Earth s devastated econonmy by broadcasting their dating life to the fascinated aliens, except that they eventually come to hate each other [but] can t break up without bankrupting their families. Landscape with Invisible Hand will be directed by Cory Finley (Bad Education, Certified Fresh at 94% and Thoroughbreds, Certified Fresh at 86%).5. CARY ELWES JOINS GUY RITCHIE S SPY THRILLER FIVE EYES (Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection)Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and everything else going on the world, there are probably some movies that are getting released to much more obscurity than they would ve otherwise. One such film is Wrath of Man, the latest crime drama directed by Guy Ritchie (Aladdin, The Gentlemen, Sherlock Holmes), whose films are usually much more prominent (and that s without mentioning the film s star, Jason Statham). For his part, Ritchie is moving forward with another project, a spy thriller called Five Eyes, which will start filming at locations in Turkey and Qatar later this month. We ve known for a while that the two leads in Five Eyes will be Aubrey Plaza and Jason Statham (his fourth collaboration with Ritchie), and as of this week, we can add Cary Elwes to the cast as well. Elwes will play the espionage operator who teams up Statham s MI6 super spy with Aubrey Plaza s high tech expert CIA agent.6. CAN ANYONE SOLVE HOW TO TURN RUBIK S CUBE INTO A MOVIE?(Photo by Vladimir Smirnov/Getty Images)It s been a few years since we regularly saw movie pitches being sold for non-narrative toys and games like Viewmaster, Play-Doh, and Pez, but thankfully, most of those are either still spinning around in development or have since been shelved. Unfortunately, The Emoji Movie (Rotten at 7%) still happened. With all of that in mind, the latest toy to get its own movie deal is the puzzle box and nostalgia artifact that is the Rubik s Cube. The producers appear to be name checking Netflix s The Queen s Gambit in an effort to demonstrate how a movie like Rubik s Cube can be successful. Rubik s Cube will be a joint production between Hyde Park Entertainment Group (Blue Valentine, Machete) and Endeavor Content (Hamilton, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood). Hyde Park is also developing a TV game show based on Rubik s Cube.7. RAY FISHER S CYBORG NOT GETTING HIS OWN MOVIE AFTER ALL (OR A ROLE IN THE FLASH) (Photo by ©Warner Bros. Pictures)It was just a little over six years ago that Warner Bros. held their big DC Comics movie event, during which they announced a few movies that did happen (Aquaman, Shazam and Wonder Woman), at least one we re still waiting on (The Flash), and a few that didn t (Cyborg, Green Lantern, Justice League Part Two). The Cyborg movie was actually originally supposed to be released over 8 months ago, but the last week has seen a flurry of stories bout Cyborg and that last delayed film that s actually happening, The Flash. It all started just before the New Year, as Cyborg actor Ray Fisher continued to speak out against the way he felt Warner Bros. handled his reports of misconduct during the Justice League reshoots, which led to Fisher announcing that he was dropping out from ever playing Cyborg again. Soon after, Warner Bros. confirmed that Cyborg s cameo role in The Flash had been written out, and that the role would not be recast. WarnerMedia also put out a statement last night confirming that longtime DC Comics writer and producer Geoff Johns is still working for the company (reversing a Ray Fisher social media statement). Even without Cyborg, The Flash should still be a superhero-filled adventure, with the expected cast so far including Ezra Miller as The Flash, Billy Crudup as his father, and at least two different Batmen (Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton, despite some recent rumors to the contrary). Warner Bros. has scheduled The Flash for November 4, 2022, wrapping up a year that is expected to also include The Batman, Aquaman 2, and Black Adam.On an Apple device?

(Photo by Warner Bros.)Our Ridiculously Early Prediction Series feels particularly ridiculous this time around because it has only been a few months since the last awards season wrapped. Wasn t it just yesterday that Nomadland was crowned Best Picture at the 93rd Academy Awards? Not quite, but the 2022 season is now in full swing, and we are back to kick off our series with the Best Actor contest.Most of the films on our list of potential Best Actor performances have yet to screen for critics or at a festival, but most will debut soon, and early buzz is out for some that borrow from existing source material. The Best Actor race is poised to feature several prior winners and former nominees competing against an ever-growing slate of newcomers and marquee names yet to receive their first Oscar nominations. If history or basic math tells us anything, it s that many of these names won t make it to Oscar night, but we re pretty confident most of them will be right up there in the awards chatter. So read on as we break down our ridiculously early picks for 2022 s Best Actors.Disagree with our picks? Have at us in the comments.
亚博网站首页 Breakthrough (2019) 63% Faith-based movies are being made and released more frequently than ever, but they rarely come with the kind of mainstream-friendly cast that Breakthrough boasts, and you can go a long way when you ve got solid, experienced performers on board. Chrissy Metz (This Is Us) and Josh Lucas play Joyce and Brian Smith, adoptive parents to John (Marcel Ruiz), a 14-year-old from Guatemala. They re also Evangelical Christians, so when John falls into a coma after suffering a near-death drowning accident, they set about praying for his recovery alongside their community, who has rallied around them. The film is based on a true story, and inspirational Christian movies never end sadly, so you can guess how everything turns out, but critics don t entirely seem to mind. They say the story is appropriately uplifting and the cast, which includes Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Topher Grace, and Dennis Haysbert, all put in strong work. It s all a little predictable, and it s not especially nuanced, but the right performances from a capable cast can do a lot to make up for some narrative and thematic shortcomings.
