(Photo by CJ 4DPLEX)What s more MAX than IMAX? To answer that, we take a quick look back to 1986. That s right, 32 years ago, the future was already being written by an intrepid explorer in a theme park. That explorer s name? Captain EO. That theme park? The happiest place on earth, Disneyland. At the time, Disney and Michael Jackson put on a show they labeled a 4D presentation, a space opera in 3D augmented by in-theater laser light effects, smoke machines, and more.Sure, the 3D was a little hokey, with things jumping out at viewers just to show off the technology, but it was so much more than that. The in-theater effects extended the reach of the 3D film and worked to fully immerse audiences in EO s world for 17 minutes. Having experienced Captain EO firsthand when I was a lad, I can tell you that I have fond, very clear memories of it. EO was event entertainment, a moviegoing experience that was extraordinary, worth the price of admission, something you put on your calendar and looked forward to.Fast forward to 2018, and it s been a good year for the cinemas, but that s relative to the steady decline in box office that American movie theaters have seen over the past few years. People aren t going to the movies like they used to, and theater owners are trying everything they can to put butts in seats. IMAX alone isn t cutting it, and many IMAX experiences aren t even the four-to-seven-story screens with 70mm film that places like Los Angeles Universal Citywalk boasts it s 57 feet high by 80 feet across. Projected on an enormous screen with the sound to match, blockbusters are an event there. Companies like CJ 4DPLEX are trying to match or better that experience, hoping to pique moviegoers interest and create those Captain EO event entertainment feels.(Photo by D-Box Technologies Inc.)Before we get into what CJ has, though, let s go over some of the other options currently available. You could spend your movie money on D-Box seats, which we first told you about here. I really wasn’t impressed with them, and even less so now, having experienced 4DX. For a quick recap, they re basically rumble seats. They have some movement, but I found them to be more of a distraction than a compliment to the film I saw; at the time, I thought their best feature was the ability to disable them.If rumble seats aren t your thing, many AMC theaters are now equipped with Dolby Cinema auditoriums. Think of amenities like Dolby Cinema and Cinemark s XD screens as elevated theater experiences. The former gets you Dolby Vision HDR with dual-laser projection and Dolby Atmos for sound, while the latter gets you true IMAX-size entertainment with its 70 foot-high screen. I know, I know, English motherf er! Do you speak it?! Yes, Mr. Jackson, I do.Think of Dolby Cinema and Cinemark XD like upgrading your 10-year-old flat screen TV to today s OLED 4K HDR panels. It s brighter, you re going to see more colors and definition, and the sound will be an upgrade as well. I was impressed with the punch of the bass the Dolby Cinema experience delivered, for example. You could feel the bottom end in movie scores and effects as if the theater had planted subwoofers right under your seats. These are elevated experiences no doubt, but still not the event entertainment that a true IMAX screen or Captain EO s 4D experience provided.(Photo by ScreenX)Ever heard of ScreenX? It s relatively new to the scene. Created by the same company that brought you 4DX, ScreenX wraps the theater in 270 degrees of immersive cinematography. As you can see in the image above, what you get is your standard front screen, but added to that are up to four additional projectors in the auditorium, two on each wall. CJ 4DPLEX s wizards work with the film s technical staff to take a movie like Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and convert certain scenes to expand out onto the wings of the theater, producing a more immersive experience. And for the most part, it is exactly that. Right now, only portions of the film extend onto the wings, which some may find jarring, but I found the transitions very subtle the expanded footage would fade in and fade out slowly and instead of pulling me out of the moment, they rather immersed me in the scene.Also the brainchild of CJ 4DPLEX is 4DX, and it is probably the closest we currently have to the Captain EO experience. Let me put it this way: I was not enchanted by The Crimes of Grindelwald. Frankly, it had been a long day and I was a bit tired at the time of the screening, and that may have factored into my enjoyment of it (or lack thereof). However, watching the same movie in 4DX was delightful. The opening sequence includes a Potter-style chase scene complete with a flying carriage and a thunderstorm, which were perfect for 4DX. How does all of this equate to better? The seats in the 4DX theater are more roller coaster than motion chair they have air jets and water misters, and the theater itself has some lighting effects to add to the atmosphere. During the chase scene I felt fine droplets of water hit my head (you can turn water effects off, if you choose); during certain moments the air jets hit me, augmenting on-screen action; and of course, there were the motion seats. Like I stated, it s much more than just haptics (the rumble seat stuff), though it does feature some solid haptic effects, too. The best way I can describe the seat is energetic. It pitched and yawed and tilted, and at times it did so somewhat jarringly, though not in a bad way. The level of activity, the sharpness, was commensurate with the on-screen action.(Photo by CJ 4DPLEX)Additionally, you might think the seat s action would be tied exclusively to the action sequences, but you d be wrong. During moments in the film when there were sweeping camera moves, the chairs panned and tilted right along with the camera, and though that took some getting used to at first, it pulled me into the moment as if I were right there on the set, behind the camera with the cinematographer. Let me be clear: It is very active, and I can see some moviegoers not liking it at all. But I ve been telling friends with young children about it, and I plan to take my wife next time.So what does the future look like? A few things. I think we ll see CJ 4DPLEX combine ScreenX with 4DX a natural progression in my opinion and give theatergoers the ultimate in immersion. Well, maybe penultimate mixing 4DX with VR and something called binaural audio would be the ultimate experience. Imagine watching a horror film with that level of immersion, for example. It would be so powerful that it could prove overwhelming for some viewers, just as the original theatrical release of The Exorcist was. Imagine Saving Private Ryan as a VR/3D audio experience, plunging viewers into the middle of WWII like never before. Imagine dodging bullets alongside Keanu Reeves as you quite literally explore The Matrix. It will no doubt come with a pricey admission fee, but it will truly be event entertainment in the vein of Captain EO.I’d love to know what you think of 4DX, D-Box, binaural audio, or even your Captain EO memories, so let me know in the comments below!ScreenX | 4DX | Dolby Cinema | Cinemark XD | D-Box | Binaural Audio沙巴体育网页版采访的最后，许老师还透露了《镖人》IP会进军影视的计划，同时还表达了对于《镖人》手游的期待，希望《镖人》的读者和玩家们能够有融入这隋唐江湖。

The wait for a Spider-Man: No Way Home teaser seemed like one of the longest in the still-uncertain fall and winter 2021 movie season. The film itself was delayed a couple of times due to the pandemic, and for a moment, it seemed as though Sony might decide to change its release date as it did with Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Thankfully, No Way Home is sticking with its December 17 release, and the studio finally offered fans a glimpse of the movie on Monday night. Since it will like be the next big chapter in the Marvel Multiverse story, we re taking a deeper look into the trailer to see what we can glean about both those cosmic implications of the film and the personal story of the title character.As always, we are aware that trailers sometimes omit key characters, jumble up scenes and dialogue, and attempt to obfuscate the plot of the film. At the same time, it s fun to dig into these big trailers for clues, so let s get started.Spider-Man: Threat And Menace(Photo by Marvel Entertainment)Seemingly, the film will open with Peter (Tom Holland) and MJ (Zendaya) trying to flee the fallout of J. Jonah Jameson’s (J.K. Simmons) proclamation about Spider-Man’s identity at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. At least, we’re assuming Jameson isn’t buying all the Time Square billboards for weeks on end. Also, the shots of Spidey and MJ near the subway entrance, swinging across town, and getting surrounded by helicopters feel like they’re happening immediately after the Far From Home stinger.Nevertheless, some time will have passed, as the couple are seen on a roof discussing the latest tabloid theories about Peter. The shots of Peter, MJ, and Ned (Jacob Batalon) returning to school (and the subsequent shots of the Halloween lights) also imply Peter’s problems will drag on well into the school year even if the police and the Department of Damage Control (the DODC agent also appears to also wear a S.H.I.E.L.D. logo at 0:29) cannot hold him. But as Peter mentions, he, Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), and Ned will be under constant surveillance and scrutiny from the various agencies looking to prove Peter killed Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).Even if he doesn’t have to lie to MJ anymore, it’s clear the weight of this will be too much for Peter to deal with, and his support system of Aunt May and friends will not be enough to help him through it. Instead of giving up on being Spider-Man, though, he does have at least one other option.Enter Doctor Strange(Photo by Matt Kennedy/©2021 CTMG)In a frozen Sanctum Sanctorum – which is either happening because Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Wong (Benedict Wong) never fixed the roof or because of a joke we haven’t seen in full – Peter asks Strange for help. Removing Mysterio’s knowledge of Peter’s identity seems simple enough, but the trailer implies it s bad idea, as Wong straight-up tells Strange not to cast the spell. Not that we re entirely convinced this is the spell Wong’s referring to in the full scene Remember the iced over Sanctum? Wong may just be worried about that.Then again, tampering with time is something Wong tends frown on. Also, Strange’s wink to Peter indicates he is being admonished for even suggesting he can change the past. We imagine Strange, for his part, is feeling pretty cocky again after saving half the universe. That attitude got him into so much trouble before and, really, being overconfident is the man’s chief flaw.Also, where is Wong headed with all that luggage? Is he relocating to Kamar-Taj on a permanent basis? Have some of the other Sanctums been rebuilt? Come to think of it, there are a number of unknowns from the first Doctor Strange film which could end up being addressed here as the subsequent shots of Peter and Strange falling through reality – and Strange giving Peter the out-of-body whammy – means he’ll be around for a good portion of the film. It’s not like Peter can re-balance the Multiverse on his own right?The Nature Of The Multiverse(Photo by Marvel Entertainment)One thing the trailer doesn’t do is offer any clarity on the issues raised by the Loki television series. Well, sure, Strange mentions the Multiverse by name, but it is quite unclear if he has any idea about the old state of play He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors) held in check. One theory of the Loki finale suggests the loss of He Who Remains is retroactive and the Sacred Timeline never actually existed from the point of view of characters like Strange. So that limited knowledge about the Multiverse s nature may be even more limited than he suspects.Which, really, makes tampering in the timeline a really bad idea. You’d think Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) debriefed Strange on what the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) told him about tangent timelines. Then again, in a Multiverse where the Sacred Timeline never existed, that rooftop discussion in Avengers: Endgame might have occurred very differently.And while we’re talking about the movies occurring differently than they did, the nature of Strange’s spell threatens to completely upend Peter’s life. If no one knows he’s Spider-Man, that means Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) never recruited him, he never received the upgraded suits and, possibly, Tony never learned the empathy necessary to have a child or volunteer to end Thanos.But perhaps we’re overthinking this, and, instead, the spell just backfires, unleashing more problems and more people who know Peter is Spider-Man.The Sinister Three?(Photo by Marvel Entertainment)The trailer gives us three villainous images to ponder for the next few months. First, there’s the yellow lightning at 2:13 in the trailer. It could be more Multiversal chaos, but it could also be Electro (Jamie Foxx). Sure, his electricity was blue in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but yellow was Electro’s classic color back in the comics. Is it possible, this isn t the same Electro from the Amazing series and, instead, the MCU version of the character? Will we see Foxx in the classic mask?Next, there’s the Green Goblin s not-quite-pumpkin bomb and his familiar cackle at 2:28. Then, finally, Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina) appears at 2:41, confirming not only his presence in the film despite Molina doing that himself months ago but also that he fully recognizes Peter for who he really is. So, at least as far as the Multiversal characters go, Peter’s original wish to be unknown will be unfulfilled.All of these teasing moments suggest half of a Sinister Six ready and able to end Spider-Man, particularly this Spider-Man. Will the others appear to help him out? That remains to be seen.That said, there may yet be at least one more villain lurking in the shadows 2:26 in the trailer. It may be Doc Ock’s extra limbs, but it could also be made of sand or even an alien symbiote.Black Suit Confirmed(Photo by Marvel Entertainment)Not that this is connected to our musing about a symbiote in the darkness, but Peter is clearly wearing a black Spidey suit at 1:15-1:18 of the trailer. The existence of the suit was spoiled by early toy line product images, but to see it in the trailer leaves one wondering why Peter would choose to wear it. He’s also seen in the more “classic” MCU suit and the Iron Spider suit from Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. Perhaps it’s just another variation of costume in his arsenal, or, maybe, it is a symptom of the problem Strange suggested is caused by Peter’s attempts to be two people. Will the suit just change to black because the Multiverse is breaking down around him?Spider-Man No More?(Photo by Marvel Entertainment)Because of the complicated Spider-Man movie rights shared between Sony and Marvel, No Way Home represents Peter’s last solo adventure in the MCU for now. He is meant to make at least one more appearance in either an Avengers 5 or some other hero s film. But considering the dichotomy Strange refers to in the trailer, is it possible No Way Home will end with Peter no longer being Spider-Man? It may be the only way for him to restore peace and quiet to his loved ones. And it would explain why he’s rarely around when universe-shattering events force the MCU heroes to assemble. Perhaps Holland’s last MCU appearance will see a de-powered Peter helping out in a different way.Or, maybe, Peter will have to seek refuge in another universe…Spider-Man: No Way Home opens in theaters on December 17, 2021.On an Apple device?

As 1960s psychic Criswell famously intoned at the beginning of Plan 9 from Outer Space, We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. But genre television, and its comic book-based subgenre, has the peculiar ability to allow characters living in the relative present to glimpse into the future. Or, in some cases, spend a whole season revealing a future state for the characters established by their actions in the present. Take the example of Heroes’ Shanti virus story line, in which Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) learned the terrible truth about the mistakes being made in his present. Unfortunately, that story line was never finished due to a writer s strike and Peter’s girlfriend — who traveled with him to the dark future where the virus killed millions — was erased from existence.For the most part, shows that are able to jump to the future are also able to round out those story lines in more concrete ways. While the future is frequently portrayed as a dystopian hellhole, sometimes series manage to produce interesting realities despite the grim darkness of future events. Here are the five we think represent the best of those television show futures, even when they were the worst possible outcomes for the characters.Arrow(Photo by JSquared Photography/The CW)Future: 2040The seventh season of Arrow introduced a flash-forward to the distant year of 2040. It is a seemingly dystopian time for Star City with an added cyberpunk edge thanks to Felicity Smoak’s (Emily Bett Rickards) Archer program watching over the Glades and William’s (Ben Lewis) leading tech company offering him access to the halls of power.To be fair, the series never had to budget to fully realize its William Gibson–esque ideas, but it was all there in dialogue. After years of being the city’s low-income hovel, the Glades found economic prosperity, formed its own municipality, voted in Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) as its mayor, and built a wall to keep out the Star City riff-raff. Omni-corportation Galaxy One set its headquarters in the Glades and, despite Rene’s leadership, seems to be the real executive force in the community. Using a version of Felicity’s security software, they also kept close surveillance on the citizenry. Late in the season, the company introduced shock troops with AI-assisted predictive combat helmets. The ideas could fuel their own spin-off if given the money to execute them on a grander scale.Despite the modest production values, the infusion of cyberpunk ideas into Arrow worked. In fact, it was so effective that we wish the series focused more on the exploits of William, Mia (Kat McNamara), and Connor Hawke (Joseph David-Jones) instead of Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) 2019 guilt-trip. Season 8 may give us what we want with McNamara and David-Jones recent promotions to series regulars. Alternatively, Oliver s work with the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) may erase Star City 2040 from the timestream.Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Future: 91 Years LaterAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. s fifth season dedicated half a season to a future set 91 years after the season 4 finale. There, Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team — minus Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) — discovered a destroyed Earth and a former S.H.I.E.L.D. base known as The Lighthouse standing as the last human settlement. Oh, and just for good measure, the Lighthouse was also occupied by the Kree, invited at the behest of Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) shortly after the destruction of Earth. Other shocks included an armless future version of Yo-Yo (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), and Kasius, a hedonistic Kree magistrate played to Targaryen perfection by Dominic Rains.For the most part, this future world was confined to the corridors of the Lighthouse. But occasional trips to other Earth fragments illustrated just how bad the End of the World could be. Intense gravity storms ravaged the remaining landmasses and critters imported by the Kree served as both guard dogs to the devastation and as a final punishment to any human who got out of line back at the Lighthouse.Since S.H.I.E.L.D. stayed in the early 2100s for the duration of the story — except for a notable episode in which Fitz figured out a slow-motion way to get to the future — it could devote more resources to realizing that world. And it would do so with some spectacular special effects shots that made the Earth seem as foreign as any alien world visited on a space-faring TV show like Star Trek: Discovery. And S.H.I.E.L.D.’s future had time to breathe and develop characters like Flint (Coy Stewart), Kasius, and Deke (Jeff Ward), the scheming grandson of two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who remains with the show into the sixth season.But the most interesting element of the story was the defeat of humanity itself. With the human world destroyed and the Kree arriving as conquerors, the people S.H.I.E.L.D. agents met were broken, more interested in mere survival than reclaiming their last bit of turf from aliens. It was a theme more harrowing than any production value.DC s Legends of Tomorrow (Photo by Dean Buscher/The CW)Future: 2213When it became clear Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) was going to be more than an occasional foil for Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and the Legends, DC s Legends of Tomorrow seeded the idea that Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) was keeping a deep, dark secret about her past. But since this is Legends, her dark secret was part of an unusually bright and shiny Star City of the year 2213.The paradise glimpsed by the Legends two centuries from now was just a really nice Vancouver housing complex, park, and nearby office building. But it established a surprisingly clear and lovely future — a real rarity on genre TV shows. There, everyone has a personal Ava, as it turns out Rip bought and modified an Advanced Variation Automation clone to serve as his second in command at the Time Bureau. Sure, this future may not be so bright and cheery for the Ava clones — or, indeed, Ava herself when she finally learned the truth — but it serves as an unusual outlier for future realities on the show.Indeed, Legends began with an attempt to stop a grim 2042 from occurring. There, Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) was the absolute ruler of the world and Rip was forced to watch his wife and child die during one of Savage’s raids. When that future was eliminated, it was replaced with a 2042 in which A.R.G.U.S. became a totalitarian regime, persecuting Metas and non-Christian faiths with equal ferocity. Legend Zari Tomas (Tala Ashe) hailed from this grim future, which has seemingly vanished thanks to Nate s (Nick Zano) attempts to create empathy between humans and the monsters the Legends unleashed in season 3. Perhaps his actions have brought the 2213 future in which everyone appears to have adequate essentials and commercialism seems to co-exist peacefully with the environment much closer to his own present times.The Umbrella Academy(Photo by Netflix)Future: One Week LaterThe grim future on Netflix s The Umbrella Academy was set to begin shortly after the first episode. As Number 5 (Aidan Gallagher) explained, his first attempt at time travel took him to a spot 25 years in his future, but roughly a week ahead of his family when he finally rejoined them. The future he glimpsed saw a dead Earth with himself as the only survivor. Unable to use his powers to return to his present, 5 spent many years alone with a department store mannequin as company. Finally, agents of the Commission arrived to offer him a job as a time-traveling hitman. And when you consider the charred wreck of world he found himself in, killing people to maintain the timeline was a definite upgrade.Thanks to the Netflix budget, the desolation of the future was appropriately epic. From an initial smaller set of a ruined Umbrella Academy to a great sweep in some later shots, the series set up a future so bleak, you never really questioned 5’s drive to prevent it.And unlike many of the futures we ve discussed, the dead Earth Number 5 experienced is at the very center of the story. Even as the show prepares its second season, it is unclear if the group s actions during the season 1 finale really stopped the Apocalypse. It may just be on pause while the group work out their issues.The Flash(Photo by Katie Yu/The CW )Future: 2049Whatever issues Earth-1 faced in the early parts of the Arrowverse s 2040s, it all seems to be resolved by 2049 — the year repeatedly visited by The Flash cast throughout season 5. Nora West-Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy) hailed from that time. But growing up without her father Barry (Grant Gustin) meant an isolated childhood surrounded by mementos of his exploits at the Flash Museum and the less-than-comforting words of his concerned friends. She also dealt with an overbearing mother who dampened her Speed Force abilities.As realized on the show, the Central City of 2049 seems to have escaped the darker futures glimpsed on Legends and Arrow. S.T.A.R. Labs has been fully converted into the Flash Museum and meta-abilities appear to be celebrated within city limits. Also, the town infrastructure remains in tact despite countless raids and attacks from villains looking to trip up Team Flash across the years.It is a future which fits the more optimistic Flash, as opposed to the cyberpunk future of Arrow. It also represents the curious way in which all three interconnected Arrowverse shows look 20-odd years in the future and arrive at different conclusions. But the Central City of 2049 may not be as solid as it seems with the date of Barry s disappearance moving from 2024 to 2019. Will that pleasant future disappear with Barry during the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover? Time will, of course, tell.Like this?

Toss a Coin to Your Witcher!Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer have now each gotten their own first look images for Season 2 of #TheWitcher. pic.twitter.com/JlgE5gKIzr Rotten Tomatoes (@RottenTomatoes) October 7, 2020Chris Meloni’s Law Order: SVU Spin-Off Will Miss Fall Season to Find a New Showrunner(Photo by Mike Coppola/NBCUniversal/NBCU Photo Bank/NBCUniversal via Getty Images)It was one of the most anticipated new series of the season, but Elliot Stabler fans will have to wait until next year to get a look at Law Order: Organized Crime, the Law Order: SVU spin-off that will revolve around Chris Meloni’s beloved character.Matt Olmstead, who was set to serve as Organized Crime showrunner as part of a three-year deal with Universal Television, is leaving the show, because he had trouble “cracking the show’s creative,” THR.com reports. He previously worked with Dick Wolf’s Wolf Entertainment, where he was showrunner on Chicago Fire, co-created and ran Chicago P.D., and helped develop Chicago Med. He also helped launch Stumptown at ABC.While Olmstead is expected to work on another Wolf series, the search for a replacement showrunner, as well as the inherent delays associated with pandemic-era production, mean there is not yet a new date for Law Order: Organized Crime to make its premiere, though it is still expected to hit the NBC schedule before the end of the 2020-21 season.NEW TRAILERS: The Expanse Returns for Season 5 in DecemberFans of its space opera The Expanse got an early Halloween treat with a NYCC announcement that the series would return for season 5 on December 15 with three episodes, then an episode a week thereafter until its February 3 finale.
