It s a mismatch of talents that, in the four episodes provided to critics, falls short of justifying its presence. — Daniel D Addario, Variety The 2019 Twilight Zone often dabbles in topics that are painfully relevant to today, but the real tragedy is, they were just as prevalent in Serling s time, too. Our progress has been minimal. — Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm It’s frustrating to see The Twilight Zone end up on CBS All Access instead of cable TV. While CBS gives primetime slots to conservative crime procedurals like NCIS and CSI, it cloisters away its best (and most racially diverse) programming on a subscription service that most people just aren’t going to pay for. That’s why Star Trek: Discovery isn’t the pop culture touchstone it should be, and why The Good Fight isn’t widely recognized as the best ongoing political drama of the Trump era. Maybe Peele’s brand is strong enough to invite an influx of new subscribers, proving CBS’s strategy right. — Gavia Baker-Whitelaw, The Daily DotAny final thoughts? (Photo by Robert Falconer/CBS) Like Peele s films, the show works on multiple levels, weaving together the personal and the political to craft characters as nuanced as its themes. — Judy Berman, TIME Magazine That this series has already figured out that it can be political simply by virtue of the stories it tells, the points of view it adopts, and the actors it employs is further proof that magic can happen in The Twilight Zone. — Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Magazine/VultureLike this?

This week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Captain America 4, Cruella 2, Dune 2, and Free Guy 2.This WEEK S TOP STORYIRONHEART TO DEBUT IN BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER BEFORE DISNEY+(Photo by ©2021 MARVEL)Disney s investor day last December was jam-packed with announcements, and one of them was that the Marvel Comics armored superhero Ironheart would be getting her own show on Disney+, and that she will be played by Dominique Thorne, who previously co-starred in the Academy Award nominated films If Beale Street Could Talk (Certified Fresh at 95%) and Judas and the Black Messiah (Certified Fresh at 96%). Ironheart does not yet have a Disney+ release date, but given how many shows are already filming before Ironheart, it probably won t be until 2023 or so. As it turns out, however, we won t have to wait that long to see the character make her debut, as Thorne will first portray Ironheart in next summer s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (7/8/2022). It s unclear how Ironheart will tie into Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, except one possibility is that in the comics, some young engineers have gone to Wakanda to continue their studies, which seems like a logical way to introduce Riri Williams, aka Ironheart, a 15-year-old M.I.T. student and engineering genius.Other Top Headlines1. ANTHONY MACKIE HAS OFFICIALLY SIGNED FOR CAPTAIN AMERICA 4 (Photo by Marvel Studios)Sometimes, the big news of the week isn t particularly news to anyone paying attention. For example, the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ended with Anthony Mackie s Falcon character officially taking on the role of Captain America, after a fair number of twists and turns along the way. So it was immediately obvious that Marvel and Disney planned on casting Mackie as the new Captain America in future projects, including Captain America 4, which the series showrunner was confirmed to be writing in April. Even so, Mackie wasn t officially signed to star in the hypothetical Captain America 4 until this week, but the deal is now signed. We still don t know when Captain America 4 might be released (except it likely will not be before 2024, because both 2022 and 2023 are already pretty well scheduled), or what it might specifically be about.2. SCARLETT JOHANSSON LEADS EPIC A-LIST ADDITIONS TO WES ANDERSON S NEXT FILM(Photo by Amy Sussman/Getty Images)Wes Anderson is well-known for his star-studded ensemble comedies, such as this year s The French Dispatch, and his next film, which is currently filming in Spain, seems like more of the same. Just last week, Margot Robbie signed on for Anderson s new project, and Jason Schwartzman and Rupert Friend joined soon after. This week gave us two similar casting announcements, starting with Scarlett Johansson, who was then followed by Bryan Cranston, Hope Davis, Liev Schreiber, and Jeffrey Wright. Other previously announced stars include Adrien Brody, Tom Hanks, and Tilda Swinton. One interesting thing about Johansson signing on is that Wes Anderson s films are usually distributed by Searchlight Pictures, which, as of 2019, is a subsidiary of Walt Disney Pictures, with whom Johansson is currently in the midst of a lawsuit over Black Widow profit participation.3. DENIS VILLENEUVE CONFIRMS ZENDAYA WILL BE PROTAGONIST IN DUNE SEQUEL (Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures)When David Lynch directed the first film adaptation of Dune (Rotten at 50%) in 1984, there were edits that were over three hours long, and the director s cut of the 2000 TV mini-series was almost five hours long. The reason is that Frank Herbert s original novel (and its sequels) is particularly dense, with dozens of characters and any number of related subplots. Director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) apparently knew this would be an issue all along, because the Dune movie we re getting this year only adapts half the novel. Villeneuve confirmed this week that he is currently writing the sequel (if Warner Bros. decides to greenlight it), and that the running time will be 155 minutes. Villeneuve also clarified that the protagonist role in the Dune sequel will shift from Timothée Chalamet s Paul Atreides to Zendaya s Fremen character Chani. Dune is currently scheduled for release on October 9, 2021, pushed back from its original December, 2020 release because of the COVID-19 pandemic.4. EMMA STONE IS INDEED SIGNING ON FOR DISNEY s CRUELLA SEQUEL (Photo by Laurie Sparham/©Disney+)Following the news of Scarlett Johansson s lawsuit against Disney over her Black Widow compensation, there was some speculation that other recent Disney stars like Emma Stone (Cruella, Certified Fresh at 75%) might follow suit. That is now extremely unlikely to happen, as Stone has officially closed a deal with Disney to star in a Cruella sequel. Although many details of the deal haven t been disclosed (which isn t unusual at all), Stone is expected to be earning a sum in the low eight figures, which is more than the million she earned for Cruella. It s also unclear how profit participation (a key dispute in the Black Widow lawsuit) and streaming figure into Stone s new deal. The Cruella sequel will be directed by Craig Gillespie from a screenplay by Tony McNamara, both of whom also worked on the first Cruella.5. RYAN REYNOLDS SAYS DISNEY ALREADY WANTS A FREE GUY SEQUEL (Photo by ©20th Century Studios)Whether blamed on the Delta variant or on streaming options, the movies of the summer of 2021 have regularly opened to disappointing box office. One of the exceptions to this trend was last week s Free Guy (Certified Fresh at 82%), which exceeded predictions of a - million domestic opening with a haul in the million range. Ryan Reynolds took to his Twitter account on Saturday, the day after Free Guy opened, to post that Disney confirmed today they officially want a sequel. Woo hoo!! #irony. It s worth mentioning that Free Guy actually didn t get its start as a Disney movie, as it was one of the final productions of the former 21st Century Fox before Disney acquired Fox in 2019 (which is why Free Guy isn t on Disney+ yet).6. JOHN M. CHU IS PLANNING THE GREAT CHINESE ART HEIST (Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu, whose latest film was the big-screen adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda s Broadway musical In the Heights (Certified Fresh at 95%), has a very busy slate of upcoming projects in development, including the two planned Crazy Rich Asians sequels, the Wicked movie, and Disney s live action Lilo Stitch remake. Chu added another project to his schedule this week, as he is attached to direct an adaptation of the 2018 GQ article The Great Chinese Art Heist (which you can read right here), about how great works of Chinese art kept getting stolen from museums around the world. Silicon Valley co-star Jimmy O. Yang will co-write and co-produce along with his Crab Club production company partners.7. BIOPIC OF STAR TREK CREATOR GENE RODDENBERRY IN THE WORKS (Photo by ©Paramount courtesy Everett Collection)Nicole Kidman, Javier Bardem, and director Aaron Sorkin recently wrapped production on the Amazon Studios biopic Being the Ricardos, about the lives of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, and one has to imagine that the film will address their contribution to science fiction as the co-producers of the original Star Trek. If that whets audiences appetites for more back story about the creation of the seminal television series, then the newly announced Gene Roddenberry biopic should go a long way to filling in those details. The film was announced on August 19, 2021, which would have been Gene Roddenberry s 100th birthday. The as-yet-untitled biopic already has a screenplay by Adam Mazer, who wrote the Jack Kevorkian movie You Don t Know Jack (Certified Fresh at 83%) and co-wrote the espionage drama Breach (Certified Fresh at 84%).8. ANIME HIT MY HERO ACADEMIA GETTING LIVE-ACTION HOLLYWOOD REMAKE (Photo by ©FUNimation)My Hero Academia, a Japanese superhero franchise set in a reality where most people have superpowers, got its start as a manga series in 2014 that was then adapted as an anime series starting in 2016 in the US, you can catch it on Adult Swim. Legendary Entertainment, which is the same company that gave us both Pacific Rim and the recent Godzilla franchise, is now developing an English-language live-action My Hero Academia feature film, and the directing job is going to Japan s Shinsuke Sato, who also adapted the manga-based movies Bleach (Fresh at 71%) and Inuyashiki (Fresh at 100%). My Hero Academia will also be Shinsuke Sato s first English-language feature film.9. THE FAST AND FURIOUS FAMILY WILL RETURN FOR #10 IN 2023 (Photo by Universal Pictures)Not counting any future spinoffs that might still happen someday, the main Fast and Furious franchise is set to have just two more movies, and now we have an idea about when the penultimate movie will come out. Fast and Furious 10 will start filming in January, 2022 for a release on April 7, 2023. There is no release date for the final film, Fast and Furious 11, yet, but it will be filmed back-to-back with F10, so a release date in 2023 is probably most likely. Franchise mainstays like Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, and Michelle Rodriguez are all expected to return for the last two films, but it s not yet known if more recent additions like John Cena and Charlize Theron will also return. Other movies currently scheduled for around the same time include Dungeons Dragons (3/3/2023) (which recently wrapped filming), the prequel Wonka (3/17/2023) starring Timothée Chalamet, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (5/5/2023).On an Apple device?

(Photo by ©AVCO Embassy Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)In 1978, director John Carpenter released the seminal horror film Halloween and it flopped. Or at least he thought it had. The truth was, it opened in such limited release that it took a long time for word of mouth to build momentum. Once it had, he found himself with a million gross (on a 5,000 budget making it the highest grossing indie film ever until The Blair Witch Project in 1999) and mounting expectations for a killer follow-up. We didn t want to make another knife picture, explained producer Debra Hill in the DVD documentary Tales from the Mist: Inside the Fog. While on vacation in England, she and Carpenter visited Stonehenge and took note of an eerie fog bank surrounding the mystical structure. What do you think is in that fog? asked Carpenter. And just like that, they had their follow-up.The Fog was released on February 8, 1980, and although Carpenter would have slightly more money than he did on Halloween, it was still paltry even by early 80s standards. He and Hill set out to craft an old-fashioned ghost story about the fictional seaside California town of Antonio Bay, and how its 100-year anniversary is marred by the arrival of a mysterious rolling fog masking dark and deadly secrets. To get it done, they d have to get crafty.To honor the 40th birthday of The Fog, let s take a peak inside the Carpenter-Hill playbook to learn how to make million dollar scares out of a coupons and a dream budget.Lesson 1: Set Yourself Up For Success(Photo by ©Embassy courtesy Everett Collection)No one wants to tell an artist to dream smaller, but there is something to be said for keeping your vision manageable. The conceit of hidden ghosts in a dense fog gave Carpenter a huge break on his FX budget right from the get-go. The killers are mostly seen in silhouette (if they re seen at all), which nicely works both thematically and as a cost-saving measure. No need to blow your wad on CGI ghouls when you can suggest more than you show.Lesson 2: Location, Location, Location(Photo by Lionsgate)Similar to the unseen threat idea, Carpenter wisely kept Antonio Bay nicely and cheaply small town. He secured two main locations, an actual lighthouse (located in Point Reyes Beach, California) and an old church (the Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Sierra Madre, California), and made the most of them. The movie didn t require sprawling locales or elaborate sets, because the sense of isolation and claustrophobia served the overall story so well.Lesson 3: If You Shoot Big, It ll Look Big(Photo by Lionsgate)Carpenter and his frequent collaborator, cinematographer Dean Cundey, understood that the best way to mask The Fog s lack of budget muscle was to shoot its small ideas in the biggest way possible. The duo chose to shoot in widescreen Panavision, which made the most of the vast seaside locations witness the scene when the son of local radio DJ Stevie Wayne (Adrienne Barbeau) discovers the driftwood on the beach, or when Elizabeth and Nick (Jamie Lee Curtis and Tom Atkins) take a stroll along a dock. These scenes give you big, spacious backgrounds and a real sense of scale, even though there isn t any real action taking place in them. It s subtle, but it works. A lot of cheap movies involve tight close-ups in nondescript cafes and they feel cheap. The Fog, meanwhile, feels more expansive than that. Shooting in wide-open Panavision, according to Hill, made it look like you have a bigger-than-life movie. Lesson 4: Multitask and Call In Favors(Photo by Lionsgate)Low budget filmmaking means you make the most of what you have within figurative arm s length. Father Malone s (Hal Holbrook) assistant Bennet doesn t have a lot of screen time and even fewer lines, so Carpenter himself stepped in to play the role (he would admit in the audio commentary that his own performance was “terrible” and that he’d never act again except as “helicopter pilots and walk-ons”). Not only did the shadowy figures in dense fog help the FX budget, it also helped with keeping the stunt department lean. Whenever you see a ghost arm smashing through doors and windows, it was usually the same arm (even though it was often edited to seem like dozens) that of Carpenter s childhood friend Tommy Lee Wallace, who also served as the movie s editor and production designer. Carpenter cast his then-wife, Barbeau, in the lead much to the chagrin of Hill, his ex-girlfriend and called in a favor to get his Halloween star Curtis into the mix. Including Curtis also helped convince her mom, screen legend Janet Leigh, to sign on as Antonio Bay s mayor. This had unexpected benefits, too: Carpenter wasn t shy when forced to use the Psycho actress star power to convince a local restaurant owner to stay open later so they could finish shooting.Lesson 5: Suggestive, Not Bombastic (Photo by Lionsgate) It didn t rely on the usual scares was how Cundey described The Fog in the Tales from the Mist doc, which is a euphemistic way of admitting they were under pretty tight constraints. But he and Carpenter built a sense of mounting dread and creeping unease through careful and inexpensive means. First, there was the score (done by Carpenter himself see Lesson 4), and then there were a series of simple but dramatic little moments like rattling bottles, honking car horns, dripping salt water, and sliding furniture that startled and creeped out the audience without having to rely on big, elaborate scares. There s also very little blood in the movie; the deaths are quick, brutal, and often off-screen. But the impact remains.Lesson 6: Pad If You Have To(Photo by Lionsgate)Carpenter s original cut of The Fog was a less-than-cinematic 85 minutes, so while keeping it lean and tight was good for the budget, it didn t help the finished product as much. He realized he needed to beef things up ever so slightly without stretching his already thin resources, so at the 11th hour he added the opening sequence of venerable actor John Houseman recounting the legend of Spivey Point over a campfire. The beach was faked on a soundstage, and the expository dialogue-disguised-as-local legend not only helped nudge the movie to a more respectable running time (alongside some additional shots of stabbings and a new sequence where a dead character appears to awaken in a hospital morgue to address concerns the producers had that the original cut wasn t scary enough), but it helped reinforce the overall ghost story feel without having to add much more than a simple fireside chat.Lesson 7: Compromise When You Must(Photo by Lionsgate)The character of KAB Radio DJ Stevie Wayne was modeled after legendary 60s and 70s DJ Alison Steele, known as The Nightbird. But where Steele played progressive counterculture rock and became a groundbreaking legend, Wayne rocks Antonio Bay with lounge music? Carpenter no doubt would have liked to have peppered his movie with cool rock tracks like Quentin Tarantino, but he had to program KAB with generic smooth jazz because, well, it was much, much cheaper. The only band Stevie mentions directly while giving an on-air shoutout to the crew of the Seagrass is The Coupe De Villes, which is Carpenter s side band (they performed the title track and even made a music video! for Big Trouble in Little China).The Fog first opened in wide release on February 8, 1980.
4. 呼朋唤友 随心所欲
Speaking of heart attacks and artists, how s TV development treating you? I mean you seem extraordinarily busy. Gaiman: I am, although, you know, a week from now on the 31st of May, Good Omens comes out and happens, and I get to retire as a showrunner. I guess I might have to come out of retirement if we get nominated for awards — just turn up at award dinners and things. But basically as far as I m concerned I made this thing that I promised Terry Pratchett I would make and now I m done. I don t have to be a showrunner anymore. I love talking all the things that I ve learned in the four years I ve been making Good Omens and getting to apply them to other things and getting to help other people make things.So you know, it s nice to be a producer of Gormenghast, for example, and I m very actually looking forward to seeing and helping Toby Whithouse along and looking forward to Toby going out to the world with his Gormenghast. I m looking forward to being more involved in adaptations of my own stuff coming up in the future, but I don t really want to write them again, I don t want to showrun again. I would really like to become a writer, and possibly even a novelist again.I hear you have some talent for that.Gaiman: As I’ve said, I will become a retired showrunner, and in my retirement, I may take up writing.(Photo by Amazon Prime)Good Omens looks like it was a blast to film. What was that experience like?Gaiman: It was a blast to film. Good Omens was fascinating because it was an incredibly long shoot. We were making Good Omens, I think we shot altogether for about 120 days, and it s a lot like making a 6-hour-long movie. And when we finished, it was then followed by 11 months of post-production, so that was long, long days, hard work, making something huge, but also — more by luck than anything else, because it just came down to me and director Douglas MacKinnon so much of the time — we wound up making something that feels very, very handmade and feels pretty personal. We got to make personal choices, and there wasn t anybody leaning over our shoulders saying, No you need this. You can t do that. Is that one of the joys of working with a streaming company?Gaiman: I think Amazon trusted us, which was great, and the BBC who were technically our producers, nobody had ever done anything like this before, and they didn t really know what it was, and they just left us alone to get on with it.Well, you can t argue with the result – it s a joy to watch your work come to life with such talented actors.Neil Gaiman: Thank you. I m so proud of it. I made the show for Terry Pratchett, he asked me to make it before he died, and then he died. I wanted to make a show that Terry would have loved, and make a show that Terry would have laughed at, but also that contained all of the ideas and the textures of Good Omens, and I think we did it.May I ask, what is going on with The Sandman? That s one I ve been really looking forward to.Gaiman: Sandman has been interesting, because for the last 30 years … people have failed to make all sorts of versions of Sandman because the time was not right. In the 90s people were going, “We don t know how to make a million R-rated film that would have any CGI in it that doesn t work for us,” and all of this kind of stuff. What s great about now is we ve reached an era in which the fact that there are well over 80 Sandman stories becomes a feature, it becomes an advantage, rather than a problem with how you cram all that into 120 minutes.So, we now have the CGI, we now have the technology, and we now have an adult audience, and we have millions upon millions of people who love Sandman and would love to see it. So I would be very, very surprised if we do not actually get some cool Sandman thing happening in the next two or three years. But then again, there have been many things over the years with Sandman where I ve gone, Ah, OK. Well, they re going to make this. And this is going to be great then. And it has never happened. So anything is possible.Good Omens debuts on Friday, May 31 on Amazon Prime.

It probably shouldn’t come as a total surprise that mercenary with multiple personalities could become quite violent. But a new video chronicling Moon Knight star Isaac’s training for his role as the lead in the upcoming Disney+ Marvel series suggests the titular character may be a real killer, something that could potentially the family friendliness right out of the MCU story.The video reveals some impressive fight moves during Isaac’s training, several sequences of which end with what appears to be throat-slitting knife work. The video was posted to Instagram by Mad Gene Media, the New York–based production company founded by Isaac and Elvira Lind.Whatever Isaac’s character is getting up to in the series, it definitely seems like there’s plenty of action-packed drama ahead … for viewers whose mommies and daddies deem it appropriate viewing, anyway.First Look at the Powerpuff Girls as Women(Photo by James Acomb/The CW)If you were a little underwhelmed last week at the sight of the Powerpuff girls in costume on the set of The CW’s upcoming live-action reboot of the Powerpuff Girls cartoon, we’ve got news and an important update. The literally cartoon-y look of the costumes was intentional; the scenes being filmed were flashbacks to Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup Utonium in action during their teenage years.This week, The CW released the first official photo of Powerpuff stars Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault as adults, and they’re wearing some colorful, but still all grown up, stylin’ duds. The pilot, in fact, will be largely focused on the women as adults, and their angst about having spent their younger years as world-saving heroines.In other Powerpuff news, Robyn Lively joined the cast as Sara Bellum, the mayor’s assistant, while original series narrator, Tom Kenny, will return as the narrator for the reboot..The Walking Dead: Another Spin-Off Coming, Featuring Negan?With season 10’s finale – the season-best “Here’s Negan” episode of The Walking Dead that featured Jeffrey Dean Morgan and his real-life wife Hilarie Burton playing Negan and his wife Lucille – setting up the inevitable showdown between Negan and Lauren Cohan’s Maggie in TWD’s upcoming final season, fans are facing the end of the line for most TV versions of TWD’s characters.But during Morgan’s appearance on Conan this week, he provided hope for fans of his performance of Negan, confirming to Conan O’Brien that there have been discussions about a spin-off series revolving around the bat-swinging killer who’s trying to redeem himself.“I think they re thinking of a couple different ideas, but I ve definitely had conversations about possibly continuing the story of Negan,” Morgan said.(Photo by AMC)Future TWD projects already announced include a spin-off starring BFFs Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) and a series of movies featuring the return of Andy Lincoln as Rick Grimes.And speaking of Rick, who disappeared from the series when Lincoln left the series, but was killed off in the comic book, he’s going to be resurrected for a special issue of the book.Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman announced this week he’ll celebrate the 10th anniversary of his company Skybound with a five-issue, limited edition comic book series called Skybound X, with one non-canonical issue featuring Rick Grimes and revisiting a bonus ending story from the comics (issue #75) that revealed aliens to have a hand in the zombie apocalypse.NEW TRAILERS: Barry Jenkins’ The Underground Railroad: What If It Really Was an Actual Railroad?The Underground Railroad is Oscar-winning director Barry Jenkins’ moving series that imagines an alternate timeline in which the network of abolitionists is an actual railroad, based on Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

Brown/AFP via Getty Images)Jamie Lannister is coming back to television … or rather his portrayer, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is. The Game of Thrones will star in and executive produce The Second Home, a series adaptation of author Christina Clancy’s debut novel of the same name. The story follows the Gordon and Shaw families, and the two generations of the families whose lives are unraveled by a secret that began during a fateful summer in Cape Cod. No network is yet attached to the series. (Variety)Fabien Frankel (Last Christmas) has been cast in the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon, where he’ll play Ser Criston Cole, a common-born man with serious sword-swinging skills who is a member of King Viserys I Targaryen s Kingsguard. (George R. R. Martin’s Blog)Oscar winner Common has joined the season 2 cast of Mindy Kaling’s YA Netflix hit Never Have I Ever. In a recurring role written just for him after he proclaimed the series one of his pandemic watch favorites, Common will play Dr. Chris Jackson, a dermatologist with a list of celebrity patients, who works in the same building as Nalini (Poorna Jagannathan). Season 2 is scheduled to premiere in July.Another Oscar winner, Natalie Portman, is staking more claim in TV land. Portman, who recently signed a first-look deal with Apple TV+, will star in and executive produce The Days of Abandonment, an HBO movie adaptation of author Elena Ferrante’s book of the same title.

(Photo by Josh Ethan Johnson / © A24 / Courtesy Everett Collection)Many who saw Steven Yeun as the suave, stylish playboy Ben in Lee Chang-dong’s Burning were shocked not to see him among the Academy Award nominees for Best Supporting Actor in 2019. The Korean-born American actor, just a few years out from leaving his star-making turn as Glenn on The Walking Dead – the episode still crushes us to this day – had delivered the kind of charismatic, sinister, and layered performance that, had it not been in a foreign film, would have all but assured him a solid awards-season run. Yet, despite some serious campaigning from writers and industry folks who heralded his turn as the almost Ripley-esque figure, it was not to be.Burning was just one within a streak of exciting post-Walking Dead projects that have marked Yeun as one of the most interesting and unpredictable actors of his generation – and one of the Freshest. Since leaving the AMC series in 2016, he has popped up in Bong Joon-ho’s Okja and Boots Riley’s Sorry To Bother You, and he s played the lead in the ultra-violent action/horror/comedy Mayhem, all Certified Fresh; add to that some great TV voice work in acclaimed animated series Tuca Bertie and Wizards. And then there’s this year’s Minari, in which he plays an immigrant father chasing the American dream in the rural South – and dragging an unwitting family along with him – and which won top honors at last year’s Sundance Film Festival.Minari arrives in theaters with three Screen Actors Guild Nominations, including for two for Yeun for Lead Actor and as part of the ensemble, and a controversial Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, despite being a decidedly American production and story. (Pundits predict the Academy won’t be making another Burning-level oversight of his performance when Oscar nominations are eventually announced, either.) Yeun, of course, isn’t focused on the hype, but on the work, and what Minari’s success could mean for American audiences and American stories moving forward.Ahead of the movie’s release, Yeun sat for an extended chat with Rotten Tomatoes to talk about how he has charted his unique career path, playing Minari’s single-minded Jacob, and why he seeks collaborators who are like nobody else.Jacqueline Coley for Rotten Tomatoes: I really wanted first of all to congratulate you on the SAG nominations, both your individual one and the ensemble one, and again, the film s just getting so much great praise. I checked this morning – I didn t know until today – but you re on a five-film Certified Fresh hot streak. Steven Yeun: Really?Yeah. There must have been a lot of offers after The Walking Dead and you could have gone a lot of different directions, but looking at the films you did – everything from Okja and Mayhem to Sorry To Bother You and now Minari – those are specific choices. How did you decide to do those films, and why did you want to work with those filmmakers?Yeun: It s strange, because you re asking me now from a kind of a retrospective lens, and maybe I ve by this point kind of compiled a story to tell about what happened and how I made these choices, but in those moments, I don t know if I had agency like that. I probably did. I certainly said no to things that I felt were just other versions of things that I ve tried before.But I think a lot of it is, for me, I was really trying to find myself. I was really trying to find out who I was and kind of get to play in roles that allowed me the space to express the fullness of, not me per se, but of a character. As an Asian-American actor, prior to Walking Dead, if I had any opportunities at all, it was really mostly to service larger narratives or kind of be a plot point by which to weave the main character around. So I wanted to be the main character that gets to have the plot points to weave around. With Mayhem, I m so thankful to them for giving me my first chance at a leading role. It wasn t a big budget and we shot it in Serbia, but we had some really wonderful people with us. Samara s [Weaving, his co-star] incredible, Joe [Lynch, the director] is great. To flex that muscle was attractive to me.Steven Yeun in Burning. (Photo by © Well Go USA / courtesy Everett Collection)And, then Okja… who wouldn t work for director Bong? I m a huge fan. And so, him reaching out and giving that part to me was extraordinary – and painful, because K was very much something that I was at the time, just somebody straddling two worlds and being unable to service either one. And I think going through that experience – I wasn t necessarily super conscious of what I 不查不知道，刀剑神域手游和贪玩蓝月居然有一个共同点，你没有听错，本来是八竿子打不着的两款游戏，却被神通广大的玩家找到了共同点！当然，并不是说刀剑神域手游中也可以做到“一刀999”或者“一刀99级”或者“开局送神装”，而是刀剑神域手游和贪玩蓝月有着一样的游戏厂商。OMG，最开始我还不敢相信，但是仔细翻看资料后，似乎验证了玩家的观点，因此刀剑神域手游被不少玩家戏称【贪玩刀剑】。

Just because she thinks that she is the rightful ruler and just because she thinks she s ready to lead doesn t mean she is, said Sackhoff, who revealed that Bo-Katan s ego and readiness to lead was one of the many topics she discussed with Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni when they first talked about Bo-Katan s possible appearance on the show last year.Sackhoff cornered Filoni at Star Wars Celebration in April 2019 to talk about characters from Rebels — set roughly a decade before The Mandalorian — possibly making the leap to live action. I always wanted to do this, and I needed to be sure that she fit into the world and that her age worked, she said. I was fingers crossed that I would be allowed to do it. Then the call came, which she said was the most surreal moment of my life. (Photo by Justin Stephens / © SCI-FI / Courtesy: Everett Collection)At the same time, though, playing Bo-Katan on The Mandalorian felt like a natural extension of her career, Sackhoff said: I ve spent the last 25 years figuring out how to play strong women. Besides her role as hot-shot pilot Capt. Kara Starbuck Thrace on the Battlestar Galatica reboot, Sackhoff has also put time in on series like The Bionic Woman, The Flash, and, most recently, Netflix s Another Life, the second season of which she is currently shooting. All the pieces just seemed to fit together, she said.She also found a surprising new sense of ownership of the role once she had a set of armor to wear on set. It was just my voice [in animation], and, really, my job at that moment was to deliver performances that Dave wanted, she explained. When you re going to live action and you are then given the responsibility of portraying this character in actuality, it s a very different thing. (Photo by © 2020 Lucasfilm Ltd. ™. All Rights Reserved.)Although her familiarity with the character was a benefit, it also presented a unique challenge when building the performance. Back in the recording booth on the animated shows, she could be big and expressive to get the performance Filoni wanted, but bringing that larger-than-life energy was out of place on the set of The Mandalorian. Bo is regal — her upbringing raised her to be so — and she s very stoic and she s very purposeful. When her face does something, it s calculated, and I needed to make sure that translated because that is very much already been established in animation, Sackhoff explained. I had to relearn my own face to make it move less. Crazy Katee can t show up. It wouldn t have worked. She credited The Heiress episode director Bryce Dallas Howard with helping her find the happy medium between who Bo was in animation and who she is in reality. The episode now has a 97% Tomatometer score on 31 critic reviews.
310直播 What would happen if the most generic background character in your favorite video game suddenly became self-aware and decided he wanted to be the hero? The new action-comedy Free Guy has one answer, as it follows the chipper Guy (Ryan Reynolds), a nondescript bank teller in an open-world video game who is reprogrammed by rogue developers and takes it upon himself to save the game from being shut down.Ahead of the film s release, Rotten Tomatoes correspondent Erik Davis chatted about the film with director Shawn Levy and the cast of the film, including Reynolds and co-stars Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, Joe Keery, and Utkarsh Ambudkar. Reynolds reminisces about his obsession with Ms. Pac-Man ( I just loved how hungry she was ), and Comer reveals the Springsteen hit that pumps her up. Then Keery and Ambudkar talk about uncomfortable, stripper-tight costumes, as well as working alongside the unbridled, Robin Williams-esque energy of Taika Waititi. Plus, Levy and the cast talk about complex world-building and whether or not they considered making a game based on the one depicted in the movie. Check out their interview in the video above.Free Guy is in theaters now. On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.
