免费手游，不能说因为没有消耗玩家的金钱就可以心安理得的冷处理。玩家们在游戏里面付出了时间付出了精力，积累了一堆资源终于等到出手时机，结果却给了这种结果。他们爆发起来了是很可怕的。 Have you revealed what you would do #FortheThrone yet? HBO s marketing campaign for the final season of Game of Thrones is in full swing. Next up: beer #ForTheThrone. The series is also getting a making of documentary as a digestif for its final season. Plus, Killing Eve slays the BAFTA TV nominations, but some argue that the BBC America original doesn t meet the criteria to be eligible for all 14 of its nominations. And another Sex and the City? Really?TOP STORYGame of Thrones Season 8 Is Getting a Documentary(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)HBO will offer a behind-the-scenes-look at filming of the final season of Game of Thrones with a two-hour documentary later this year, titled Game of Thrones: The Last Watch. The film traces the making of the series’ upcoming eighth season, and is set to air May 26, one week after the series final season finishes airing. Directed by British filmmaker Jeanie Finlay, The Last Watch promises “unprecedented access” while the cast and crew “contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers,” according to HBO. Game of Thrones showrunner D. B. Weiss, producer Bernadette Caulfield, and writer David Benioff are executive producers on the documentary. The Last Watch will be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, and HBO On Demand on May 26.In other Thrones brand-extension news, Brewery Ommegang and HBO Licensing Retail will release the latest Game of Thrones beer nationwide in early April. Called For the Throne, the 9.5% ABV golden ale is co-fermented with pinot grigio and viognier grape juices and then bottle conditioned with Champagne yeast. For the Throne joins the four other Game of Thrones beers Ommegang has available, including Queen of the Seven Kingdoms (a blend of sour and blonde ales), Mother of Dragons (smoked porter and kriek ale blend), King in the North (a barrel-aged imperial stout), and Hand of the Queen (a barleywine ale). Find out where to purchase on the brewery s site. Let the #HoldMyBeer #ForTheThrone memes begin.The beer is just one part of HBO s #ForTheThrone campaign, which includes outdoor events, social media emojis, a Quest for the Throne worldwide hunt for Iron Throne locations, a partnership with the American Red Cross to Bleed for the Throne, and an art collection of inspired by props, from swords to fashion, from the show.And, as Tyrion might remind us, don t forget the wine Killing Eve Tops BAFTA TV Nominations — But With a Hitch(Photo by BBC America)Killing Eve and A Very English Scandal led the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) 2019 awards nominations with 14 and 12 nominations, respectively. Patrick Melrose received six, while Bodyguard and The Little Drummer Girl each received five, BAFTA announced on Thursday. See all of the nominees on BAFTA s site here.British media reports note, however, that the spy comedy from Phoebe Waller-Bridge, which stars Jodie Comer as assassin Villanelle and Sandra Oh as MI5 officer Eve Posner, violates the awards rules that state that to be eligible, a series must have had the worldwide premiere in the UK and a UK broadcaster must have primary control over it. Killing Eve was commissioned by BBC America, however, which is co-owned by the BBC and U.S. cable network AMC. Killing Eve should only be eligible in the international series category, according to one interpretation of the rules.The Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards ceremony will be held at the Royal Festival Hall on Sunday, May 12, with the British Academy Television Craft Awards taking place two weeks earlier on Sunday, April 18 at The Brewery, London.Another Sex and the City Sequel?(Photo by Warner Bros.)There might be another Sex and the City sequel after all — but it’s headed to the small screen. According to Deadline, Paramount Television has acquired the rights to SATC author Candace Bushnell’s latest book, Is There Still Sex in the City?, that examines love and dating after 50. Bushnell will write a pilot script and executive produce alongside Liza Chasin and Robyn Meisinger. The most recent effort in the franchise, CW series The Carrie Diaries, starred AnnaSophia Robb, focused on a teenage Carrie Bradshaw, and was canceled after two seasons.Pose Picks Patti(Photo by FX)Pose executive Producer Ryan Murphy announced at PaleyFest last weekend that there will be a “time leap” between seasons 1 and 2 of the FX series about the New York City ball scene. While season 1 is set in the 1980s, season 2 will pick up in the 1990s on “the day Madonna releases ‘Vogue,’” Murphy teased.After the success of Pose producer Janet Mock’s directorial debut, the Billy Porter–fronted episode “Love is the Message,” the writer will return to direct this coming season (and, of course, will continue to write throughout the season as well).Murphy teased that Tony Award winner Patti LuPone would be “coming to play with us in a couple weeks,” when she will share several scenes with Blanca (MJ Rodriguez). Season 1 guest star Sandra Bernhard has been promoted to series regular for season 2.Jussie Smollett UpdateAll charges against Empire star Jussie Smollett were dropped after the actor was accused of faking a hate crime he reported in January. According to reports, the charges were dropped as a part of a settlement that included the actor participating in community service and the forfeiture of his ,000 bond.CONFIRMED: As part of settlement with Cook County SAO, #JussieSmolett performed combined 16 hours of community service at Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr’s @RPCoalition. Included critiquing students in broadcast center, working in bookstore, and talking to visitors. @fox32news Dakarai Turner (@Dakarai_Turner) March 26, 2019The actor s troubles aren t over, however, as the prosecution s decision to a deal with the actor has sparked widespread criticism about special treatment for a celebrity. The FBI and Department of Justice were even called upon to review the matter. One insider tied to Empire told Deadline, “Things are so unclear and there is a feeling that this isn’t over, that there’s more to come.” The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is also reportedly working with law enforcement to investigate a hate-filled letter that the actor received on the set of the Fox drama. If it is discovered that the letter was sent by the actor to himself, he could face 5-20 years of jail time.Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who has been critical of the deal prosecutors agreed to in the attack, is sending Smollett a bill for 0,000 for police overtime.In the meantime, the actor is nominated for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series NAACP Image Award to be presented on Saturday. The ceremony will air live on TV One at 9 p.m. EDT.Homeland’s Family Reunion and More Casting News(Photo by Showtime)Hugh Dancy is set to join real-life wife Claire Danes for the eighth and final season of Danes’ award-winning series Homeland.

By 1993, DiCaprio was applying his striking cherubic looks to dramatic features like This Boy s Life and breakthrough What s Eating Gilbert Grape, in which he shared the screen with already-established heartthrob Johnny Depp. Romeo + Juliet made Bill Shakespeare palatable for the mid- 90s teenybopper set, which set the stage for world-storming Titanic, which won all the awards, made all the money, and fashioned DiCaprio as a legend in his own time.Not to rest on his laurels like on a haphazard dresser floating in the ocean, DiCaprio spent the immediate post-Titanic years seeking only to work with the best directors on edgy material, even as they were in their creative doldrums: Woody Allen with Celebrity, and Danny Boyle with The Beach. The viscerally negative reaction to Beach was enough to get DiCaprio to seemingly pull a disappearing act for what seemed like ages in the pre-Internet world. In reality, not even three years had passed when he re-appeared in Gangs of New York, igniting a rich De Niro-esque relationship with Martin Scorsese that would pay dividends with The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, and The Wolf of Wall Street.Beyond his conservation efforts (resulting in documentaries like Ice on Fire and Before the Flood), which have kept him from acting, DiCaprio maintains his brand and allure by making each screen performance a major event, going years between narrative films and working only with the biggest-name directors out there: Clint Eastwood (J. Edgar), Christopher Nolan (Inception), Alejandro González Iñárritu (Best Actor and Best Picture-winning The Revenant), and, most recently, Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood).Read on to see Leonardo DiCaprio s best movies (and his worst) by Tomatometer!闪电战机If you have a suggestion for a movie or show you think we should do an episode on, let us know in the comments, or email us at email@example.com.Meet the hostsJacqueline Coley is an editor at Rotten Tomatoes, with a focus on awards and indie coverage but with a passion for everything, from the MCU to musicals and period pieces.

9.47.3 8月喜迎(Photo by Marvel Studios)R.I.P. Stan Lee: The World Loses a LegendEvery Stan Lee Movie RankedMarvel Stars Pay Tribute to Stan LeeFive Ways Stan Lee Helped Change TV and Movies ForeverStan The Man Lee left behind a tremendous legacy. Not only did the comic book legend live a long life and co-create many iconic characters before dying at age 95 this week, but those creations, including the superheroes Spider-Man and Black Panther, will surely continue to be a part of our pop culture forever.One thing about Lee that sadly can’t continue forever, though, is his tradition of appearing in movies and TV series based on Marvel comics. His cameos have been a staple of not only the Marvel Cinematic Universe but also installments of the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises, as well as other live-action and animated adaptations, most recently Sony’s Venom.Fortunately, we haven’t seen the last of him on the big screen just yet. Prior to his death, Lee managed to film or record at least five more parts in movies that are due out in the coming year (we’ve learned, however, that he won’t be in X-Men: Dark Phoenix). From the final installments of Phase Four of the MCU to non-Marvel movies you might not expect him to show up in, these are his remaining confirmed or very likely cameos.Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) 88%(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)Next up for Lee is this Wreck-It Ralph sequel, which follows the title video game character and friends into the expanse of the World Wide Web as they encounter other entities from Disney’s portfolio of intellectual property, including all the Princesses, some Stormtroopers and droids from Star Wars, and various Marvel heroes. Lee can reportedly be found in a scene where he’s accidentally knocked down by one of the movie’s main characters. (via The Wrap)Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) 97%(Photo by Sony Pictures)How could Lee not have recorded a vocal cameo for the next theatrical release based on his most famous superhero creation? He voiced parts in everything from the new Spider-Man Playstation 4 video game to recent episodes of Spidey cartoons. For Sony’s upcoming animated feature, Lee again appears in cartoon form as a costume shop owner, voicing one line for the part, which you can see in the first half hour of the movie. (via CBR.com)Captain Marvel (2019) 79%(Photo by Marvel Studios)While Lee did not come up with this movie’s main character, Carol Danvers, he did co-create a version of the superhero Captain Marvel that evolved into the Danvers incarnation. Regardless, it’s an MCU installment and therefore obviously has to have a Lee cameo. There is no confirmation, but hints about Lee’s locked-down cameos point to an appearance in Captain Marvel, and considering this was the rare Marvel movie to shoot in Los Angeles, where Lee resided, he wouldn’t have had to travel far for the opportunity. (via Screen Rant)Avengers: Endgame (2019) 94%(Photo by Marvel Studios)This follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War has been specifically cited as containing a cameo from Lee by co-director Joe Russo: “So, Stan, typically we try to get him out — he doesn’t love to fly — so we try to get him out for his cameos around the same time,” he explained to the BBC earlier this year. “So if we have other movies shooting on the same lot that we’re on, for instance Ant-Man 2 or Avengers 4, we group his cameos together and then move him from one set to the next and kind of get him through his cameos in one day.”Although that’s not quite a statement of certainty that Lee shot his cameo for the next Avengers movie at the same time as his hilarious bit in Ant-Man and the Wasp, it does sound like that was the case. Regardless, Lee otherwise seems to have been confirmed for the highly anticipated sequel since then, and fans see this as a perfect way for The Man to finish out his run of cameos, with what’s promised to be the conclusion of the MCU as we’ve known it so far.Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) 90%(Photo by Sony Pictures)One cameo that is borderline unlikely is an appearance in Sony’s next MCU collaboration, the follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming. The movie wrapped shooting a month ago, but there has been no indication that Lee was able to film a part for the sequel. Fans believe his involvement in a movie based on his most famous superhero would be an appropriate and bittersweet (and tear-inducing) swan song.There’s also a theory floating around that Far From Home ties into the scene where we first see Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Infinity War, meaning Lee’s final cameo could simply be a reprisal of his school bus driver from this year’s Avengers movie. Perhaps he shot another line to use at the time, but even a repeat of the same footage and performance would be a welcome (and weepy) surprise for the fans.And as Marvel head Kevin Feige noted this week to Variety when teasing future cameo possibilities (most likely specifically for Avengers 4), “I’m not going to tell you what specifically… but Stan always appreciated a good surprise.” What s more, a Sony rep we spoke to said she couldn t comment on Lee s presence or lack thereof in Far From Home, so take that as you will.Madness in the Method (TBD)(Photo by Universal Pictures)Lee’s other definite non-Marvel appearance in the bag is this directorial debut from Jason Mewes — aka Jay of Jay and Silent Bob fame. Mewes and Lee both appeared in the comedy Mallrats (albeit never together) more than 20 years ago, and the former also credits the latter as being partly responsible for his becoming friends with filmmaker Kevin Smith, who will also appear as himself alongside Mewes in this meta serial killer comedy.It’s unknown how big Lee’s part is as Stan is in Madness in the Method, and there’s still no release date announced for the movie (Lee was part of the shoot last year, and the movie was shown to potential distributors at Cannes in May), but at least we know it’s one of a handful of places we’ll get to see Lee’s face one more time.
The Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) and the Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) announced the film Nominees for the 2019 Writers Guild Awards. Roma, If Beale Street Could Talk, BlacKkKlansman, Green Book, Vice, and A Star is Born added to their impressive accolades, while indie darlings Eighth Grade and Can You Ever Forgive Me? may have favorably tipped the scales on their Oscar chances with a major guide nomination. Nicole Holofcener and Lauren Greenfield were sadly the only female writers honored this morning, but nominations for genre favorites A Quiet Place and Black Panther prove that the writer s guilds are embracing arthouse cinema as well as blockbusters. The television nominees were announced earlier this month. Read through for the full list of nominees for feature films, documentaries, and video games below.Original Screenplay
Do we really need another Toy Story movie? For a significant chunk of moviegoers, that was the first question that came to mind when Toy Story 4 was announced, but here we are, almost a decade after Toy Story 3, and it looks like the wait was worth it. Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and most of the rest of the voice cast are back albeit in a slightly more limited capacity in a new adventure that centers on a homemade toy named Forky (voiced by Tony Hale) who s having trouble comprehending and accepting his own existence. Woody takes it upon himself to help Forky fit in, and in the process, he reconnects with an old friend and begins to reexamine his own choices. It was always going to take a monumental achievement to make a return trip to this universe worthwhile, and by most accounts, critics say first-time director Josh Cooley has succeeded. The Certified Fresh Toy Story 4 is yet another triumph for Pixar that somehow manages to find poignant new ways to tug on heartstrings and entertain audiences of all ages, and with a supporting voice cast of new characters that includes Christina Hendricks, Key Peele, and Keanu Reeves, this one is poised to be another hit.
It feels as though the character Batwoman has been on TV for a while — what with her splashing around in summer 2018 headlines and making a special appearance in last year’s Arrowverse “Elseworlds” crossover — but the debut episode of The CW s Batwoman will be the real beginning of Kate Kane s (Ruby Rose) television journey.You may already know Batwoman is Bruce Wayne s only living relative, an accomplished fighter, and very out and proud. But that s only a sliver of who she is, what she s fighting for, and why she has a series all her own. And combined with her ties to the already-sprawling CW multiverse of superheroes, it might be helpful to get a primer on what to expect when you sit down to watch Batwoman. Here are a few things you should know about this hero as her series begins.1. It’s Set On Earth-1(Photo by Elizabeth Morris/The CW)Currently, The CW airs six superhero shows set on three different Earths. The Earth-1 of Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl’s Earth-38, and the undesignated Earth of Black Lightning. The latter two occur on different Earths because they were not developed as CW shows — Supergirl first aired on CBS and Black Lighting was developed for Fox — but their alternate universe homes also pay homage to DC Comics and its fascination with alternate realities.But as last year’s “Elseworlds” crossover made clear, Batwoman takes place on Earth-1. Which means it is possible for characters from The Flash and Arrow to make easy visits to Gotham City. Of course, that famous DC town was not always available to Arrowverse producer Greg Berlanti. Thanks in part to the way DC Entertainment handles film and television rights, the use of Gotham City icons had to be approved by several levels of management. Even a passing reference to Batman in an episode of Arrow a few years ago required executives at DC, Warner Bros, and Fox to sign off on it as Gotham was still on the air on Fox and Batman movies are always in development.Some of those barriers have been cleared to make Batwoman possible, but it means you may be waiting some time to see your favorite Gotham City villains on the show. Most of the marquee rogues are typically reserved or Batman feature films and, thanks to a deal made with 20th Century Fox in the 1960s, the Fox broadcast network always has first dibs to Batman characters on television. There are exceptions, though, like Tommy Elliot — the more recent villain known as Hush — who will appear in the form of actor Gabriel Mann in upcoming episodes and Magpie (Rachel Matthews), a fairly minor villain from the 1980s. Both appeared on Gotham, but are easier for the series to tap than, say, the Penguin.That said, Kate has her own rogues gallery, including the murderous and twisted Alice (Rachel Skarsten) and, if previews are anything to go by, the Crows private security firm run by her father Jacob (Dougray Scott).2. Gotham City Has Its Own Cast Of Characters(Photo by Kimberley French/The CW)Besides Kate, Jacob and Alice, the Gotham of Batwoman will be fairly populated from the first episode on. Other characters include Kate s stepmother Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), stepsister Mary Hamilton (Nicole Kang), Wayne Industries caretaker Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), and Crow agent Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy).Applying the old evil-stepmother trope, Kate and Catherine do not get along. Kate is a loner who left home after high school, while Catherine is a mover-and-shaker in the Wayne-less Gotham. She does have a vested interest in reversing the city s reputation as a crime-riddled hellhole, however, which is definitely compatible with Kate s new job ridding her city of bad guys. Med student Mary, meanwhile, may be on better terms with Kate, but her real challenge is keeping her off-the-books health clinic in the tough part of Gotham a secret.As for Luke (based on the DC Comics Batwing character) and Sophie, it s best you watch the debut episode without a great deal of background on either, as they are the people Kate ends up interacting with the most — and for very different reasons.And since we re talking about Gotham citizens, it might helpful to mention Gotham itself is more a grounded Dark Knight place than the sometimes cartoonish city of Gotham. Which is to say, people behave a little more like everyday folks instead of the mad, wonderful, and shouting denizens of the former Fox television show. It s an important contrast for a Gotham set on The CW s Earth-1.3. The First Few Episodes Take Place Prior To “Elseworlds”(Photo by JSquared Photography/The CW)While Kate has a distinctive look, as seen in “Elseworlds,” it may be an episode or two before Rose is actually wearing that particular Batwoman super-suit. As revealed at screenings during San Diego Comic-Con this summer (and one at NYCC this weekend), the first episode takes viewers back to the moment Kate returned to Gotham after a self-imposed exile and discovers her cousin Bruce’s secret identity. Consequently, the complete Batwoman costume may not be seen on screen for a few episodes.From a narrative standpoint, this is the right way to go as it means things like the Batwoman wig and red cape get to mean something to the audience. But for those watching the continuity between Batwoman and the other CW superhero shows, this means a good chunk of the first season occurred prior to last year’s “Elseworlds” crossover.And just to make things even more confusing, the timeline has to sync up before December’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover, since Kate will be featured in the story.In its own strange way, this also honors DC Comics and the way it tells stories, just without a helpful editorial caption to tell you these events are taking a place a year and a half ago. As you actually watch Batwoman, this may not matter too much in the short term — it has to tell its own story after all — but it may come up in December.4. It Is An Origin Story(Photo by Kimberley French/The CW)As mentioned above, a large part of the show s first season will form an origin story. It seemingly takes its cues from Batwoman: Elegy, a story by Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III that really set the tone for Kate in the DC Comics universe. It reveals key details about Kate’s past — getting kidnapped with her twin sister at a young age, getting kicked out of the military when her same-sex relationship was exposed, etc. — and serving as a de facto origin tale even though Kate had been operating as Batwoman for a good year or two prior to Elegy’s publication in the pages of Detective Comics.On the show, some of these details are getting remixed, but it will depart from Elegy in a key way — it will spend far more time showing Kate becoming Batwoman. Back in the comics, the character was always fully formed. But for television, it is important to see Kate making certain choices, literally learning the ropes and cementing her identity.We have to admit that choice is dramatic satisfying for a series like this. And, as it happens, Berlanti pulled this off before on Arrow. Halfway through its second season it introduced Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), a visiting crime scene analyst who began a quasi-relationship with Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). By the end of the season, he was struck by lightning and awarded with his own show. Thanks to the Arrow appearance, the audience had the chance to decide if they liked Barry while the first season of The Flash saw him discovering powers and hitting certain important milestones.And like Barry at the time of his debut, Kate is a person a lot of viewers only know through reputation or her brief appearance in the Arrowverse last year. Giving her a handful of episodes of self-discovery gives the new program — and the audience — plenty of time to obtain a clearer picture of Kate.5. It Is An Action Show(Photo by Robert Falconer/The CW)Thanks to the success of The Flash, the subsequent Arrowverse shows have been filled with metahumans and crazy super powers. Even the fairly grounded Black Lighting, which exists outside the Arrowverse framework, indulges in its super-power displays and, indeed, made the collection of metahumans a key part of its storyline. But Batwoman is a return to the pure action show roots of Arrow. Like that series early days, Kate, her associates, and her enemies will lack for big, bright powers.Granted, that’s baked right into the premise — members of the Batman family are generally conventional humans trained for peak performance — but it means the show will have a different feel than what you might expect. This is doubly true as Arrow finds itself dealing with alternate realities and a multiverse entity as part of its eighth and final season. Week-to-week, this means you should expect a lot more close-quarters fighting and, perhaps, a reliance on gadgets. Hopefully, the latter will set the program apart from Arrow, which avoided trick arrows for a long time.The return to action also means the show will be less tied to the campier elements of the DC Universe. That’s probably a good decision as Batwoman is paired on Sundays nights with Supergirl, a show filled with powered aliens and a generous helping of goofy camp to offset its often-serious stories. And considering the rumblings that a “World’s Finest” team-up between the two heroes may eventually happen, contrasting their worlds can only be a net positive. A similar difference in tone helped set The Flash apart from Arrow.But considering Batwoman’s comic book past includes some wild monsters, aliens, and prophecies, we wouldn’t put it past the production team to introduce something decidedly fantastical into the mix after “Crisis on Infinite Earths” or in the first season finale.Until that occurs, though, expect Batwoman to be a show about fighting for one s identity. Whether or not that s a meta-commentary on the show itself (and its place in the Arrowverse) remains to be seen.Batwoman airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on The CW.Like this?

and there were two elements that hinted that Morbius might be set in the same world as Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far from Home. The first was a Spider-Man poster with Murderer spray-painted over it (hinting at Far from Home), and the second was the appearance of Michael Keaton, who played Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. the Vulture, in Homecoming. We ll hopefully know more about all of this when Morbius is released this summer on July 31, 2020.4. THE FLASH OF TWO WORLDS: EZRA MILLER MEETS GRANT GUSTIN(Photo by Clay Enos/©Warner Bros. Pictures, Katie Yu/©The CW Network)One of the most surprising things to happen on The CW s five-part Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover happened in the finale Tuesday night, as we saw Ezra Miller s movie version of The Flash meet Grant Gustin s TV show version in The Speed Force. Normally, this column doesn t really touch on TV show news, but this scene potentially has big implications for the long-in-development The Flash (7/1/2022). There have long been indications that The Flash will depict a version of the popular DC Comics storyline Flashpoint, and having Ezra Miller s version meet Grant Gustin s version could be part of how we get to Flashpoint, since it involves time travel and alternate realities (much like the CW show as well). There is still a lot about The Flash (the movie) we don t know, and this might have been just a cute little cameo, but it could also be our first tease about a movie that s just over two years away from release.5. THE SOUNDS OF NO TIME TO DIE: BILLIE EILISH, HANS ZIMMER, AND THE SMITHS GUITARIST (Photo by Amanda Edwards/Getty Images)One of the last steps in the post-production for most movies (except, apparently, Cats) involves the music. So, one shouldn t read too much into the stories this week about the music for the 25th James Bond film, No Time to Die (4/10/2020). The biggest revelation is that 18-year-old pop star Billie Eilish will become the youngest person ever to perform the theme song for a James Bond movie. Billie Eilish reportedly wrote the song with her brother Finneas Eilish. It was also confirmed last week that the rest of the score of No Time to Die will be composed by Hans Zimmer, but what s most surprising is that Zimmer is collaborating with Johnny Marr, who probably remains best known as the guitarist of the influential 1980s British pop group The Smiths.6. STEPHEN LANG S BLIND KILLER TO RETURN FOR DON T BREATHE 2 (Photo by Ghost House Pictures)It s impossible to know for sure if any of these movies are related to each other, but in the last few years, there have been a few horror and/or suspense thrillers that are all related to the senses. Sight was the element at play in Lights Out and Bird Box, sound was the sense involved in A Quiet Place, and Don t Breathe incorporated both. The sequel to A Quiet Place is coming out on March 20 of this year, and this week, we learned that the sequel to the latter movie will start filming a month after that. Don t Breathe director Fede Alvarez has hired his co-writer Rodo Sayagues to make his own directorial debut on Don t Breathe 2, which is scheduled to start filming in April. Stephen Lang, who starred as The Blind Man, the film s villain, will return for the sequel, which one has to guess will probably be about a new group of victims trapped in his house.7. OSCAR ISAAC MUST REALLY LOVE THE EXPRESSION EX MACHINA (Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/Netflix)Just five years ago, Oscar Isaac starred in the science-fiction film Ex Machina, along with Alicia Vikander and Domhnall Gleeson (who went on to co-star with Isaac in the most recent Star Wars trilogy). That movie came out just five years after the final issue of the comic book series also called Ex Machina, which was about the political career of the world s only superhero who subsequently becomes the mayor of New York City. Earlier this week, it was announced that Legendary Entertainment is developing a movie based on the Ex Machina comic book series that is to be retitled The Great Machine, in an obvious effort to avoid confusion with Ex Machina. Earlier today, we learned exactly why these movies would have been very easily confused, because it turns out that Oscar Isaac is also producing and will star in The Great Machine. So, if the title hadn t been changed, not only would there be two movies called Ex Machina, but they would have both featured Oscar Isaac.8. KEIRA KNIGHTLEY TO PLAY MOM TO JOJO RABBIT KID STAR IN NEW CHRISTMAS MOVIE(Photo by Barry Wetcher/©Warner Bros.)As Taika Waititi moves on to the soccer movie Next Goal Wins, his Marvel sequel Thor: Love and Thunder, and his future with the Star Wars franchise, the success of his most recently released film continues to have its impact on other film development news. The World War II-set comedy Jojo Rabbit featured three relative newcomers (including Thomasin McKenzie and Archie Yates), but the title role was played by Roman Griffin Davis, who this week joined another movie with a famous actress playing his mom. Keira Knightley and Roman Griffin Davis will play mother and son in an untitled Christmas movie which will focus on how British families celebrate the holiday. The movie will directed by Camille Griffin, who also happens to be Roman s own real-life mother. The project is now seeking to cast the father of the family.9. DISNEY DROPS THE FOX FROM ITS RECENTLY ACQUIRED STUDIOS (Photo by Valerie Macon/Getty Images)It was almost a year ago now that Disney finalized its acquisition of the film and TV properties of 21st Century Fox and Fox Searchlight, but it wasn t until this week that one of the biggest resulting changes was announced. Disney is removing the word Fox from both companies and their logos, so they will now be called just 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures instead. The new name for the studio formerly called 21st Century Fox is particularly curious, as the new name basically spins back the clock as well.Like this?

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) 52% When you re tasked with wrapping up a widely beloved film franchise that spans almost half a century and has inspired a uniquely passionate fanbase unrivaled by any other, you kind of have to accept the fact that you are likely not going to please everyone with the final result. In other words, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was almost guaranteed to be divisive, even with J.J. Abrams back in the director s chair. The story here picks up some time after the events of The Last Jedi, as Poe (Oscar Isaac), Finn (John Boyega), and the rest of the Resistance rally to take out the remnants of the First Order. Meanwhile, Rey (Daisy Ridley) has been training in the ways of the Jedi, but finds that her fate is intertwined with that of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), and the pair must figure out what that means for them and for the future of the galaxy. Critics say that The Rise of Skywalker is an earnest effort to tie up loose ends and close the book on the Skywalker Saga, but its plotting is somewhat basic and uninspired, and at times, it feels as though the film is going out of its way to undo any perceived wrongs committed by its predecessor. That said, it s still a briskly paced adventure that smartly relies on the talents of Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver, introduces some fun new characters, and offers enough fan service to tickle most fans nostalgia bones. There s no guarantee that you ll love this or hate this if you re a Star Wars fan, but taken on its own merits, it s still a reasonably entertaining spectacle.
闪电战机 f broken-down makeup. I m a trained makeup artist, and at first, the lines were very clean and very clownlike. And I had to go against the grain and break down this character. I remember when Chris brought in books of Francis Bacon paintings, these very blurry images. That really set the tone and set us in a direction of really just muting down and degrading the makeup. And that, that was really our Bible, those Francis Bacon paintings.”Caglione was inspired by Francis Bacon. Joel Meares“It had to be a very organic-looking makeup, like this guy is putting on makeup and maybe sleeping in his clothes for a week.”Caglione: “When you look at those images – Cesar Romero, you look at [Jack] Nicholson – they have the big white red lips, you know, they have kind of dark eyes. And the white face. So it s basically a blueprint. It s just riffing on it is the thing. And our riff on it was that it had to be a very organic-looking makeup, like this guy is putting on makeup and maybe sleeping in his clothes for a week. His hair is kind of oily and greasy, and he doesn t take off his makeup for like, three to five days. It’s not clean, pristine, this is an organic world we re taking a peek into. This is real life stuff. In my early sketches, I sketched different scars. And maybe that influenced the final prosthetics, but those prosthetics were built by Conor O Sullivan. I was just the guy responsible for all the paint work that went over the pieces. But I seem to remember, in some of the meetings, the Cheshire Cat smile.”“I always got the feeling that Heath had already worked it out in his head. He knew where he was going.” Caglione: “Heath was great in the chair. Special actors like Heath – and my experience with Al Pacino over the years – these actors help you relax so that you can bring your game… I always got the feeling that [Heath] had already worked it out in his head, from what I remember. He knew where he was going. Early on, in first meeting Heath and playing around with the makeup, he already kind of had it all figured out. It was my job to just basically gild the lily and try to catch up with him, really. That s what I felt.”Ledger was instrumental in creating the iconic look.

Pride Month may be ending in a few days, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stop celebrating. Rotten Tomatoes asked the cast and creatives of some of our favorite LGBTQ+-centered series — including The L Word creator Ilene Chaiken, Pose creator Steven Canals, Vida creator Tanya Saracho, activist/Pose director and writer Janet Mock, and Pose star Mj Rodriguez — to reveal what their personal favorite LGBTQ+ television shows are, and why. Here’s their curated list so you can keep celebrating LGBTQ+ contributions to pop culture all year long.Like this?

It’s the television game-changer of the moment. It’s spectacular in every way. Those two women both as actresses and characters are stunning. Jodie Comer is my new favorite sexy twisted hero villainess. And it’s just – what can I say? The added bonus is Fiona Shaw, who, on the show, is playing this wicked character but she is also just an icon in gay, elevated, acting royalty.Tanya Saracho: Killing Eve is inspired storytelling. I will continue to love it for its complicated, flawed and morally ambiguous protagonists. I choose to disregard [star Sandra] Oh s comments about this not being a lesbian story and will take it for what I think it is: A f ked-up queer tale of love and obsession.Noah’s ArcSteven Canals: Noah s Arc is a really great one. It s one of the few shows I can think of that centers queer black men.Mj Rodriguez: When Noah s Arc came out, that slayed for me. It was the validation. And also there were trans women on that show. Granted, they were featured, or they were guests, or they were background, but they were still there and that s what really made me feel good.American Horror Story 77%Ilene Chaiken: Ryan Murphy delivers for me in American Horror Story. In everything he does he delivers. Nobody tells our stories and portrays us and provokes us in the way he does, but American Horror Story is my favorite because he does genre, and genre gets at us in such a profound way.Vida 100%Janet Mock: I love Vida. I love what Tanya has done with that series. I love how much deeper they go in season 2 — I watched it in a day and a half. I love a half-hour drama. I think that she s doing such important work. I love those actors so much. I love the world that s there. That s literally right over here, right, a little east of us where we re at right now. And so yeah, I love that series and I hope that more people watch it and support it.Pose 98%Tanya Saracho: Pose is necessary television. And it s overdue. It s a beautiful thing to see all those brown and black faces on screen, living their truest lives.Will & Grace Mj Rodriguez: Now granted, there were no trans women on that show at all, but it was still representation of the LGBT community. And I can only relate to it somewhat because I mean, it was an all-white cast.Sense8 86%Ilene Chaiken: Maybe it never found the audience that it should have, although I know it has some very devoted fans. It’s a beautiful work of art, something we don’t often see on television. It works as story, but it works as just ethereal, ephemeral, profound art.Gentleman Jack 90%Tanya Saracho: I m crazy about Gentleman Jack (and that top hat!). I love everything about the show; the aesthetic, the tone, the story — but mainly, Ms. Suranne Jones. She took her character, Anne Lister, through the emotional paces from cheeky breaks of the fourth wall to stirring exploration of what it meant to be queer in a time when that was a viscerally dangerous thing.Orphan Black 93%Ilene Chaiken: Even if there hadn’t been gay and trans clones, I still would’ve said it was a gay show, but it’s just progressive, it’s subversive, it’s brilliant, and also, and really important for me, I have been looking for gay genre shows, or for genre shows that feature gay characters and gay themes forever and ever and Orphan Black finally delivered for me.Orange Is the New Black 90%Mj Rodriguez: Laverne Cox is like my sister, and she was the one who broke down that door and opened the space up for us to come on in and take our craft seriously.One Day at a Time 99%Tanya Saracho: I heart One Day at a Time so much. Elena and Syd s beautiful relationship is poignant and bold and so now. I love how they love.The Rachel Maddow ShowIlene Chaiken: And also Anderson Cooper, but Rachel Maddow in particular. Where else do we look for icons, for just a touchstone to our own rage and hope and truth? Movie theaters are reopening in New York City — some of them anyway. And to 25% capacity. Vaccination levels are exceeding estimations from January and now we have been told that vaccines will be available for every American by the end of May. Normalcy is seemingly coming and people can sense it, especially those at the movie studios who continue to make schedule moves. The waters are being tested. After the numbers posted by Tom Jerry last week does the performance of Raya and the Last Dragon tell us anything more? Well, yes. And no.King of the Crop: Raya s .6 Million Opening Might Be A Sign Of Hope – And Not Quite As Soft As It Seems(Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture)Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon is yet another test of the theatrical/streaming model. Back in September the studio tried Mulan on for size with its Premier Access pricing on Disney+. The result was not nearly as lucrative as they had hoped and it surely has been a factor in the way they have weathered the storm with the release of Black Widow, still scheduled for May 7 in theaters.Mulan only played overseas in theaters and the response to the film was mixed in general (it s Certified Fresh on the Tomatometer but has a Rotten Audience Score of 49%). So we did not have quite the same measuring stick of a day-and-date release with streaming on top of theatrical. That changed with the Warner Bros./HBO MAX deal and began with Wonder Woman 1984 over Christmas weekend. That film opened to .7 million over the holiday with COVID spikes still raging and an option to sit at home comfortably with a HBO MAX subscription for the cost of less than a single ticket price in some markets. That film went on to gross million to date (with another 7 million internationally) and is the third-highest grossing film U.S. theaters have had since last March.(Photo by Warner Bros.)The same studio’s delayed Tenet grossed .9 million and The Croods: A New Age has grossed over .6 million and most of that actually came after it hit VOD on its 24th day of release. It grossed .02 million in theaters up to that point. Flash-forward to last weekend – the first non-holiday weekend since March 13-15, 2020, to post an overall gross of over million, and just the third overall, when Tom Jerry opened to .1 million. That was the second-best opening of that timespan to Wonder Woman 1984’s .7 million. (Tenet’s .2 million also included previews from Tuesday and Wednesday of earlier that week.) That means despite the availability of the HBO MAX option, folks still opted to give those films the best openings of the pandemic era. This brings us to the latest family offering from Disney.Disney – and, frankly, the whole industry – would have loved to have seen a million opening for Raya and the Last Dragon. Even just a few million above Tom Jerry would have sufficed – something to show that, as vaccinations increase and major markets begin to open again, the numbers are headed in the right direction. An .6 million start is not what anyone had hoped. After all, a premium price tag at home is double what a month’s subscription to HBO MAX costs and Tom Jerry opened around 70% higher just a week earlier. (Par for the course, Disney has not released any figures on Raya’s streaming performance.) Sure, Tom Jerry is an established property over the new world-building of Raya, which also opened in 400 fewer theaters, partially thanks to Disney unable to come to terms with bookings at Cinemark, but can it still be spun as a positive?(Photo by Warner Bros.)Another way to look at it is simply within the numbers produced by a similar theater output. Tom Jerry opened in 2,475 theaters with a ,701 per-theater-average. Here are the best openings for films opening between 2,400-2,500 theaters from 2010-2020: Into the Woods (.05 million), Tyler Perry s A Madea Family Funeral (.06), All Eyez On Me (.43), Heaven is For Real (.50), Legion (.50), Death at a Funeral (.21), The Crazies (.06), Den of Thieves (.20), Tom Jerry (.11), Nobody s Fool (.74).Not bad considering Tom Jerry opened with theaters operating at minimal capacity and none opened in New York City. The animated/live-action hybrid grossed another .6 million this weekend. That’s a 53% drop from its opening. The WB/HBO MAX hybrid releases, Wonder Woman 1984 and The Little Things dropped 67.1% and 55.3%, respectively, in their second weekends, so those numbers are headed in the right direction for WB. Tom Jerry’s total stands at .9 million, just behind The New Mutants’ .8 million gross – the fourth-highest during the pandemic.Now let’s look at Raya and the Last Dragon, which opened in 2,045 theaters with an estimated ,205 per-theater-average, and the films from 2010-2020 that also opened between 2,000-2,100 theaters: Think Like a Man (.63 million), The Best Man Holiday (.10), Tyler Perry s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor (.64), Tyler Perry s Acrimony (.17), Jumping the Broom (.21), Super Troopers 2 (.18), Harriet (.67), Annihilation (.07), The Hundred-Foot Journey (.97), Cloud Atlas (.61), Baggage Claim (.03), The Witch (.80), Raya and the Last Dragon (.6), The Switch (.43), Black and Blue (.37), Wanderlust (.52).It s a little bit further down the list, but again, theaters are mostly working with 25% capacity on the nearly one-year anniversary of the worst pandemic in 100 years. Raya and the Last Dragon is only the fifth film to open in over 1,000 theaters during this time to post a per-theater-average over ,000. In normal times that would be a disaster. Now, it’s a hopeful sign that we have had that happen two weeks in a row. That’s where we are. In a week-by-week game now seeking the signs that normalcy is coming and each week shall be judged accordingly.Lesser Returns: Chaos Walking and Boogie Fail to Pull People From Their Homes(Photo by © Lionsgate)Family films and wannabe blockbusters are the only films garnering moviegoer’s interest enough right now to get them to leave the house. Chaos Walking may have once believed itself to be the latter, but it was not to be. In a glass-half-full way of thinking, .8 million is the fourth best opening of 2021 behind Tom Jerry, Raya and the Last Dragon, and The Little Things (.7 million), but that s with a 0 million price tag and no streaming profits to think of yet. The basketball drama, Boogie, had the sixth best opening of the year behind those four films and Liam Neeson’s The Marksman (.1 million), starting with just .2 million.On these Dates In Box Office History (Photo by @ Universal)March 5: Two years ago, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World grossed .6 million on this day to cross the 0 million mark on its 12th day of release. A big record was broken in 2010 when Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland posted the highest Friday opening ever in the month of March with a .8 million start. That bested the three-year record of Zack Snyder’s 300, which opened to .1 million. Alice lost the record two years later to The Hunger Games and currently ranks fifth behind that, Batman v Superman, 2017’s Beauty and the Beast, and Captain Marvel.March 6: The only major milestone crossed on this day also occurred in 2010 when The Blind Side grossed 6,218 on day 107 of its release to cross the 0 million line. Sandra Bullock had won the Oscar for her performance just one week earlier.March 7: In 2017, The Lego Batman Movie made 0,416 to pass 0 million at the box office on its 26th day. It was also the day that Alice In Wonderland became the first film ever in March to gross over 0 million in its opening weekend. Its 6.1 million remains the fifth best opening ever in this month.What Should Have Been: A Different Tom Holland Sci-F Epic And More PranksRaya and the Last Dragon was originally supposed to open over the Thanksgiving holiday last year on November 25. Originally, we were supposed to get the fourth entry in the Jackass film series and a different Tom Holland science-fiction epic in Uncharted. Jackass 4 is now slated to arrive on September 3 and the video game adaptation is now charted for February 11, 2022.Full List of Box Office Results: March 5-7, 2021
