华体会体育登录采用百度引擎0（Baidu 9）Of course, any happiness they do find is going to come sprinkled between a lot more suffering and loss, and that continues in the premiere. The Alexandrians are not only forced to rebuild much of the community after that destructive showdown with the Whisperers, but they’re frighteningly low on food supplies, with more mouths to feed.Some, like Aaron (Ross Marquand), think they need to push through and get the crucial repairs to the walls completed, while others think they need to go on a massive food hunt so they can provide sustenance for that hard physical labor. Maggie (Lauren Cohan) even knows the exact place they can find all the food they’ll need for the near future, but, like with anything in their world, it’s going to require a dangerous mission to retrieve it.Which brings up the question of how, after all they’ve been through, all the tragic losses, all the times they’ve had to start over and rebuild, how do Maggie and company find the gumption, the physical, mental, and emotional energy to keep going after all these years?(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)“I think for our people, they have just been struggling and struggling to survive, [but] they remember that there have been times that are good,” Kang said. “So they re reaching for that. I think all of those folks who are parents, all the characters that just, regardless of whether they have people who are related by blood, they are all bonded together as friends and as people who ve traveled a long, hard road together. And I think even for characters that don t feel the gumption in themselves, I do think a lot of them feel the drive to help those that they love. And that s, in some ways, what s keeping them growing during a time when it feels like so much hope is lost.“After everything they ve been through, to have it fall apart after this long, it is really quite crushing for many of the characters. But I think a lot of them find themselves asking the question, ‘Can we actually rebuild from this when it s just worse? We ve been brought so low.’ So that s just one of the things that they re all grappling with as the season goes on,” she said.(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)Maggie, in particular has a lot, and then some, on her plate. When she tells her friends about this source of food she can take them to, it requires finally sharing with them her most recent trauma, and, without spoiling specifics, let’s just say that particular trauma may not be in her past.And speaking of bad things not in her rearview mirror, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is very much still on Maggie’s mind, since she’s now living in the same community with the man who brutally murdered her husband right in front of her. Negan’s redemption was easier to buy since Maggie was out the picture, but as much as his friendship with Judith (Cailey Fleming) has helped us see him in a different light, seeing him through Maggie’s eyes, reminded of what he took from her and little Hershel Rhee (Kien Michael Spiller), has made it easy to understand why all she wants to do avenge Glenn’s death every time Negan enters her path.And, again, no spoilers, but when they’re thrown together in the premiere, there are murderous thoughts all around. She wants him dead. He knows it (not like she’s trying to hide it). He knows the only way he’s going to survive is to change her mind about him, or make sure she dies first. Bottom line, it’s tough to see how both of them are still standing by series’ end.(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)Which brings us to the goals for this final season of the original series — the spin-offs, including the upcoming Kang-led sequel featuring Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride), will go on. What do the writers hope to wrap up? Where do they hope to leave the group in general?“The thing that s interesting is, when we started work on the season, we didn t know that we were starting work on what was going to wind up being the last season of the show,” Kang said of the supersized season, which will consist of 24 episodes, released in batches of eight each, through 2022.“But hopefully whenever we re writing, we re always writing with the viewpoint in mind of like, ‘We have to tell a story that feels really, really cool. We hope it leaves people wanting more,’ she said.“As we get further into the season, there are definitely places that we want to land people at the end of the series. But plotting that out is not even entirely different from what we try to do every year, which is think about, ‘Where are our characters at? Where do we want to leave them when we end the season?’ It s just that, obviously, it takes on a different level of importance, so we really spent a lot of time talking about each person and what their journey might be,” she said.(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)And how did Kang and the other writers and producers think about the season, and how it would end, in terms of Walking Dead fan expectations?“I find that our fandom, it stretches across different people with different taste, so depending on the person you ask, I really think you re going to get a very different answer,” said Kang, who’s worked on TWD since she was hired as a story editor in season 2. “I think the core of what holds the fans together is that they care about the characters and want to feel that they re watching a story about them that allows them to understand more about what they re thinking and what they re working through and how hard they re fighting to survive. And I think obviously they do like that there s a sense of adventure stakes, like the scares, and, yet, feeling like people can overcome when they need to by standing together.“Those of us that work on the show, all of us love the show, we love the comics, we love the genre. So I think we lean toward our internal sense as fans ourselves of what s entertaining for us and what we find moving or scary. Hopefully, those feelings are aligned with the audience, but we don t always know, and we can t always control that. We hope that people have a good time and get something out of it, even if certain fans go, ‘You know what? I didn t really resonate with that particular episode, but then the next one I really love.’ And a lot of that is us realizing we re writing for a variety of people. Even within our own writer s room, there are certain stories or certain characters that people are really drawn to, or they go like, ‘Ah, that s OK for me, but I really, really like this other thing.’”(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)The first two episodes of the season, “Acheron: Part I and II,” feel like one feature-length story, and should include something for every fan’s taste, from an opening reminiscent of a certain iconic Tom Cruise movie scene and all the Maggie/Negan drama to a sweet reunion (Daryl hugs!) and that aforementioned ending for episode two.“We definitely have a sense of ongoing story that also carries through some of this,” Kang said. “But as with every season we do, the show kind of reinvents itself every so many episodes. So we have some arcs that are more contained. And then within that, we sometimes have episodes that feel almost like their own little movie, and then we have some stories that are running (across) many episodes. So it s a mix of all of that, over 24 episodes.”The Walking Dead season 11 premiere is now streaming on AMC+ and airs at 9/8C on Sunday, August 22 on AMC.

These films are milestones in what has been a long, continuous journey to be seen and heard in theaters and at home, and we celebrate those contemporary hits and everything else that has come before them with the 65 Best Asian-American Movies.To be Asian-American means a personal identity spread across a coalition of different countries. Under this umbrella is a wide range of Pacific Ocean cultures and histories, countries whose people have also found a new life in the United States. The movies in our guide reflect their experiences, from Korean (Columbus, Minari), Chinese (Saving Face), Singaporean (Shirkers), Japanese (To Be Takei), Filipino (The Debut), Vietnamese (Green Dragon), and more. South Asian-American films included are The Big Sick, The Namesake, and Meet the Patels. We selected movies where the Asian-American experience drives character and story, or had a significant impact on Asian-American audiences due to its casting, the filmmakers behind it, and for breaking representational ground (Searching, To All The Boys I ve Loved Before). The Asian-American experience is sometimes about traveling to a foreign home country, explored in movies like Always Tomorrow in Hong Kong, Go Back to China, and Cavite. And sometimes the experience is about coming to America and becoming citizens, as in Journey From the Fall or Tigertail. These stories start overseas, but are also set and shot in America, so we included those.The historical landmark films are here, including Chan Is Missing, The Joy Luck Club, and Better Luck Tomorrow. All except for Flower Drum Song: This 1961 musical was the first major Hollywood production to have an Asian-American cast, but it s also Rotten on the Tomatometer. We included only Fresh movies, with at least 10 reviews, before ranking them using our ranking formula, takes into factor the movie s year of release and its number of reviews.With all that said, we present the Best Asian-American Movies of all time!
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?

King of the Crop: Captain Marvel Shines(Photo by Marvel Studios)Coming in right between other female-led hero movies (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and The Hunger Games) on the all-time chart, Captain Marvel scored a 3 million three-day haul, which included .7 million on Thursday. It was the 16th film to make at least million from Thursday night previews; eight of which are comic book adaptations and five of which belong to Marvel. It was also the third highest opening ever in March behind Beauty and the Beast (4.7 million) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (6 million). But now comes the word-of-mouth test.Only three films have ever opened to 0 million or more and failed to reach 0 million. They were Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Spider-Man 3, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. They were all sequels, though, so the Captain has a little history on her side. Wonder Woman opened to 3 million and nearly pulled off a 4x multiple with a final gross of 2.5 million. Captain Marvel already has a slight edge and we will continue to monitor its progress week to week on where it stands. Among Marvel films in the 70% range on the Tomatometer, Captain Marvel joins Thor, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 2, and The Amazing Spider-Man.Top 10 and Beyond: Dragon and Madea Can t Compete, Apollo 11 Squeaks In(Photo by @ DreamWorks Animation)How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World dropped 51% to .6 million, joining a small collection of films to have between 9-120 million on their 17th day – Sex and the City, Hotel Transylvania 3, and San Andreas. Upping the total to the 1 million range, only the first Mission: Impossible film managed to climb to over 7 million, the haul for the second Dragon film. The third film currently looks to finish in the range of 0 million – or what Captain Marvel nearly did in just three days. It’s worldwide total stands at 5 million. A Madea Family Funeral had its expected 55% drop, but at the end of its second weekend, it is only behind four of Perry’s films – Madea Goes to Jail, Boo!: A Madea Halloween, Why Did I Get Married Too?, and Madea’s Family Reunion.As for the so-called #AlitaChallenge urging people to boycott one female-led superhero movie owned by Disney for another under a company soon to be controlled by Disney, Alita: Battle Angel dropped 55% and now has a domestic total of million and global tally of 2 million. Until that latter number leaps over 0 million, there is no sense talking about it being any semblance of a success story. Captain Marvel, meanwhile, has already grossed 5 Million worldwide. Speaking of space adventures though, Neon’s documentary, Apollo 11, continues to do strong business, grossing another .3 million in just 400 theaters, many of them IMAX. It has grossed .7 million to date.This Time Last Year: No Wrinkle for Panther(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)A Wrinkle In Time nearly gave Black Panther some competition, but by the end of the weekend its .1 million was not enough to best the .8 million of the now four-time champion. The horror sequel, Strangers: Prey at Night, mustered up .4 million for third, but The Hurricane Heist (.02 million) and Gringo (.72 million) were both dead on arrival. The Top Ten films grossed at total of 3.1 million and averaged 59.9% on the Tomatometer. This year’s Top Ten grossed an estimated 7.3 Million and averaged 72.4% in part thanks to the 100% approval of Apollo 11 as well as Fighting With My Family (92%) and How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (91%).On the Vine: Amusement Parks and A Sick Romance to Pose No Marvel Challenge(Photo by Paramount Animation)A great number of limited releases will be spread out around the country include the sci-fi thriller, Captive State, Keira Knightley s WWII drama The Aftermath, and Matthias Schoenaerts in the Sundance prison entry The Mustang. Falling behind the second week of Captain Marvel in wide release though will be Paramount’s animated amusement park comedy Wonder Park and Haley Lu Richardson in the sick-teen romance Five Feet Apart, neither of which are likely to be competing for the top spot at the box office.The Full Top 10: March 8-10Captain Marvel (2019) 79% – 3 million (3 million total)How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) 90% – .7 million (9.66 million total)Tyler Perry's A Madea Family Funeral (2019) 11% – .05 million (.88 million total)The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) 84% – .83 million (.11 million total)Alita: Battle Angel (2019) 61% – .2 million (.35 million total)Green Book (2018) 77% – .49 million (.14 million total)Isn't It Romantic (2019) 70% – .41 million (.15 million total)Fighting With My Family (2019) 93% – .19 million (.66 million total)Greta (2018) 60% – .16 million (.25 million total)Apollo 11 (2019) 99% – .3 million (.78 million total)

3.92.2 8月喜迎om Dissociative Identity Disorder, a condition that manifests in the film as 23 distinct personalities (and 24 if you count the Beast). Here, Shyamalan recalls meeting McAvoy at a Comic-Con party and knowing instantly that he was the man to play The Horde, while McAvoy talks us through the appeal – and ultimately, the challenge – of bringing so many characters to life.What follows is a history of Split (2017), and reflection upon it, drawn from sit-down interviews with M. Night Shyamalan and James McAvoy.ALSO WATCH: An Oral History of Unbreakable | An Oral History of Glass“Essentially, Split and Unbreakable were the same movie.”M. Night Shyamalan: I wrote an outline for Unbreakable that included Kevin Wendell Crumb. Essentially, the movie Split and Unbreakable were the same movie. [In the original script, Kevin] abducts three girls while David survives this crash and is told, Hey, I think you re a superhero. We keep cutting to this storyline with the girls and they re being held here… the multiple personalities. And they say, The Beast is coming, The Beast is coming. Meanwhile, [David’s] like, No, I m not a superhero. No, I m not a superhero. Then he goes, Maybe I am. And he goes to the train station and bumps into The Horde and gets the vision of the girls and The Beast, and then The Beast and him fight in that big moment at the end of the original Unbreakable. These are comic-book movies, but it s really about what it s like to be a regular person and somebody that has these powers, and to do that I had to take Kevin out of it cause all you wanted to do was be with Kevin. As soon as you start that ticking clock with the girls, you can t stay away from it. You have to go back quickly. It started putting this enormous pressure on the character that I wanted to build. So, I took him out and made a movie just about Elijah and David.(Photo by @ Universal Pictures)“What would happen if we never told anybody we were making a sequel and we didn t sell it that way?”Shyamalan: I guess what happened [to make him finally make Split, with the character of Crumb] is that the type of movies that I was making changed in recent years. I wanted to make contained, smaller movies that I could control – I can make them as weird and really signature and take a ton of risks, and when someone says that ll never work, perfect! Put it in. I made The Visit that way. Then I said, You know what? The next movie I could make Split, I could make that second movie. And what would happen if we never told anybody we were making a sequel and we didn t sell it that way and we just made it and put it out and only in the last moment told them, “Hey, guess what? We re making a trilogy.”“I was staring at James as he’s talking…and I’m like, this is the guy.”Shyamalan: [James McAvoy and I were] at an event [at Comic-Con] and he walked by me and I was like, “Oh, hey man.” And I just grabbed his arm and he goes, “Hey.” We’d never met before. And I said, “I m a fan of yours.” And he said, “I m a fan of yours.” He had come back from X-Men and so his hair was growing back from being shaved; it was kind of like an inch long, maybe three quarters of an inch long, and I was staring at him as he s talking. I had written Split, and the first time I checked he was unavailable, but I was staring and I m like this is the guy. This is what the guy should look like. We shouldn t do any wigs. No make-up. Just let him do this and change personalities.(Photo by Linda Kallerus/©Universal Pictures/courtesy Everett Collection)“I turned the first page and like, oh wow.”James McAvoy: One of the questions I usually ask is, What character is it you re looking for me to play? Because I don t like reading a script when I don t know which character it is – because there may be two or three that you d be right for – you get to attached to the wrong one or whatever and then they re like, Oh no, it s for the other guy. To that question he said, Just read it. You ll see. It s a lot. Just go with it. And I turned the first page and like, oh wow. Second page, oh something different. And then I start to understand the complexities, or the fact that I m playing a character with Dissociative Identity Disorder and just how many characters I ll be playing, and I just saw it as a really interesting opportunity to explore DID.“You know when an actor s in the pocket and when they re doing something extraordinary.”Shyamalan: The crew would start clapping on Split whenever [McAvoy] finished [a scene] because we knew we were watching something extraordinary. The other actors, as well. They would shake their heads. Because you know when an actor s in the pocket and when they re doing something extraordinary that s happening in front of you like you can t believe it. He was doing that with these characters, and multiple times I went to him and I go, “I don t understand. There s maybe five people in the world that could even try to do what you re doing right now and you’re doing it. And you re doing it effortlessly.” And I m like, “You need to be doing the best roles, the hardest roles in the world, because what you re doing is astonishing.”(Photo by © Universal Pictures)“I was 37; pretending to be nine years old is potentially unwatchable.”McAvoy: I enjoyed playing Patricia, because there s something slightly repressed and kinky about her. I enjoyed playing Hedwig because he was so free and yet so vulnerable at the same time; that’s a nice contradiction that allows for a lot of play. As an actor, I mean. I think the hardest [character] to find was Hedwig. I was 37 at the time – I think I was – and pretending to be nine years old is potentially unwatchable. And even if it is watchable, it might not be watchable for more than half a minute before you go like, Ah, I don t know if I want to watch too much more of this. So that was tricky. And I wasn t really getting a handle on it. Then Night came along and said, Why don t you try it with a lisp? And I was quite resistant to that. I was like, I don t know man – kid s got enough going against him at the moment, and all that. He s already so idiosyncratically different from everybody else that it felt like too much. But as soon as we did it, it worked.ALSO WATCH: An Oral History of Unbreakable | An Oral History of Glass

The first reviews are in for DC s Shazam! and Fresh is the magic word – very Fresh, in fact. The story of Billy Batson s (Asher Angel) discovery of his inner superhero – which critics are calling the lightest, most fun, and most kid-friendly of the DCEU offerings so far – is currently sitting at 94% on the Tomatometer with 47 reviews counted [as of Sunday, March 24, 10am PT]. Early reviews are praising director David F. Sandberg and writer Henry Gayden for creating a superhero flick that is giving off warm and fuzzy Amblin vibes while still providing the thrills that DC fans demand (and some genuinely dark thrills, thanks to Sandberg s background in horror – he directed Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation). What are they saying about Zachary Levi as the titular hero, Mark Strong as his nemesis, and whether this might be the best DCEU movie yet? Read on to find out.LET S GET TO IT: IS SHAZAM! AS GOOD AS WE THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE?Holy superhero fatigue, Batman, Shazam! is actually good. Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press Why couldn t that movie have been more fun? You might have said that about some past superhero movies that have hit theaters. But you won t be saying it about Shazam! Jason Guerrasion, Business InsiderWarm, witty, and bursting at the seams with great characters, Shazam! is easily one of the most fun superhero movies ever made; even after the euphoric Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, that’s still a low bar to clear, but it’s worth celebrating all the same. David Ehrlich, IndieWireHow does it compare to other DC movies?Written by Henry Gayden and directed by Annabelle: Creation’s David F. Sandberg, Shazam! is a lot jokier and zippier than the spandex tentpoles we’ve come to expect from DC’s often-lugubrious stable of cinematic superheroes Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment WeeklyShazam! is a welcome antidote to the usual brooding DC fare, an upbeat superhero movie that feels young at heart. Rafer Guzman, NewsdayIf the Wonder Woman and Aquaman movies represented DC Comics’ first big-screen steps away from the austere color palette of the Zach Snyder movies, Shazam! takes us deeply into primary colors in a single bound. Alfonso Duralde, The WrapShazam has less in common with the grim, grisly world of Batman v Superman and the indulgent marine opera Aquaman, sharing more with the likes of Harry Potter and a certain teenage superhero from a rival comic book company. Alex Abad-Santos, VoxBut It Sill Exists in the DCEU, RIGHT?Shazam! doesn’t waste a second letting you know this story takes place in the same world where Zod once brought a war to metropolis, Batman protects the nights of Gotham or even Aquaman rules the seas. Superman is chief among them, with name drops practically every few minutes. Sheraz Farooqi, ComicBook DebateIt s different and lighter in tone, but how? there’s a great, grinning tradition of demigod-in-spandex movies that don’t take themselves seriously. But maybe the reason Shazam!, in its fluffy-tasty origin-story way, feels like a perfectly timed tonic is that the universe of comic-book movies — not just the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or the DC Extended Universe (of which this is technically a part), but the whole omnivorous universe of big-budget comic-book films that is now threatening to eat cinema, if not our souls — has grown so top-heavy with its own fateful importance. Owen Glieberman, VarietyFor large parts of the movie, Shazam unfurls like a holiday movie spin on the genre. And in embracing earnest glee and heartfelt tenderness, Shazam allows us to fully appreciate the magical excitement and wonder that superheroes can supply. Alex Abad-Santos, Vox[Director David F.] Sandberg has compared the movie to the teen-friendly Amblin Entertainment movies of the 1980s (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, The Goonies, Back to the Future) — the production company created by Steven Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy, and Frank Marshall — and there s a lot of truth to that. Jason Guerrasion, Business InsiderOK, so it’s basically Big with superheroes and villains instead of businesspeople and girlfriends, but director David F. Sandberg has infused his film with so much heart and charm that it hardly matters. Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)How is Zachary Levi as the DCEU s Newest hero?[Levi] plays the title character with an infectiously naïve, gee-whiz charisma that calls to mind Tom Hanks in Big more than anything…. Whenever Levi is on screen, wowed by his new grown-up physique (his muscles seem to have muscles) and shocked by his newly discovered powers (living lightning zaps from his fingertips), the movie soars. Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment WeeklyLevi’s body language is constantly inventive, as he plays a tween who still isn’t used to a grown man’s body, let alone a superhero’s. Alfonso Duralde, The WrapBut the cheeky, balsa-wood trick of Levi’s performance is that he’s not making fun — he’s totally sincere. It’s just that he’s playing a superhero with a major case of imposter syndrome. Owen Glieberman, Variety for a guy not named Chris, he makes a pitch-perfect do-gooder. There’s a youthful wonder and innocence he captures as the Frito-chomping man-child hero, and he has all of the facial expressions and flossing skills (the dancing kind rather than the dental) to convey the pure excitement of a boy learning he can pretty much do anything. Brian Truitt, USA TodayIt’s unfortunate that Levi plays Shazam even younger than Angel plays Billy, and without even a sniff of empty stoicism — it often feels like Levi isn’t possessed by a teenager so much as he’s performing at a child’s birthday party — but overemphasizing the concept of their shared character has its perks.

As part of our RT Archives project, we are collecting contemporaneous reviews for those films – see a full list here and read what critics said about them at the time – and shining a spotlight on the stories and people behind them. Learn more about the RT Archives project here. In the early 20th century, the name Annette Kellermann elicited an awe reserved for a select few. A screen siren in the most literal of terms, Kellermann (often credited as Kellerman, with a single n ) was a swimmer-turned-actress who arguably stands now as a precursor for the kind of crossover success that has marked the careers of the likes of fellow former athletes Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Indeed, like those two Hollywood stars, Kellermann’s physique was instrumental to her entry into and success in cinema, making her a pioneer of the jock film star that seems all too common today.Kellermann was first seen on the big screen in short films like Miss Annette Kellerman (1909), where she showed off her swimming technique and her then-famous high dives. But it would be her work on feature films like Neptune’s Daughter (1914) and A Daughter of the Gods (1916), the first ever million dollar picture, that cemented her as a marquee name in the budding film industry. Only a few of Kellermann’s 30-odd film appearances survive to this day – both Neptune s Daughter and A Daughter of the Gods have been lost – but they’re enough, along with her cultural impact as a health advocate, a one-piece swimsuit trailblazer, and an intrepid athlete, to have made her an indelible part of early film history.Born in 1886 in Sydney, Australia to a pair of musicians (her father was a violinist, her mother a pianist), Kellermann needed to wear steel braces on her legs as a child. Likely due to polio, this is what first pushed her to take up swimming at age 6, as a way of strengthening her legs. By the time she was 13 she’d completely rehabilitated those future money-earners and by the time she was 16 she’d taken up swimming in earnest, winning meets and breaking records in New South Wales state championships.(Photo by Hulton Archive / Stringer / Getty Images)Kellermann soon became a sensation in Australia, alternating between participating in swimming and diving exhibitions as well as breaking more records during competitions. In 1905, she and her father moved to England where her long-distance swims earned her plenty of press; she was even sponsored by The Daily Mirror to attempt to swim the English Channel, a feat she’d try two more times in those years without ever being wholly successful. Moving away and eventually retiring from long-distance swimming, Kellermann set her eyes on more lucrative ventures that still made great use of her talents.That’s how Kellermann ended up across the Atlantic. Oft-advertised as “The Perfect Woman” – posters for her appearances usually included measurements that showed her body metrics matched the Venus de Milo’s – Kellermann was a vaudeville sensation in the early 1910s. Her elaborate synchronized swimming performances attracted audiences in Chicago, Boston, New York, and eventually all over Europe and in her native Australia. It was during this time that Kellermann gained even more notoriety for an alleged 1907 arrest on a Boston beach. While contemporary women’s swimwear consisted of a rather bulky dress/pantaloon combination (often accompanied by long black stockings and bathing slippers), Kellermann had opted to wear a fitted one-piece costume that ended in shorts above her knees – the kind she wore during her exhibitions – which led to her being cited for indecency. (Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)The incident, which remains disputed, nevertheless speaks to Kellermann’s advocacy against such strictures on women’s bodies. Advocating for sleeker swimsuits that were less restricting, she led the way toward relaxing Victorian-era norms on what was appropriate beachwear, eventually selling her own branded “Annette Kellermann Sun-Kist’ swimsuits” in U.S. stores from around 1914 to the late 1930s, all but making her name synonymous with the one-piece swimsuit we know today. A savvy entertainer keyed into a rapidly changing audience, Kellermann knew she had the wherewithal to diversify into other potentially lucrative endeavors. While her first foray on the stage (in the short-lived London production of Undine) in 1912 wasn’t a good fit, her eventual move into feature-length films soon turned her into a bona fide movie star. Her first feature film, Neptune’s Daughter, was produced by Carl Laemmle of Universal Film Producing Company; based on an idea pitched by Kellermann herself, the Captain Leslie T. Peacock-scripted and Herbert Brenon-directed adventure film followed a young mermaid intent on avenging her sister, who died when caught by fishermen’s nets. With a fantastical background and even a romantic subplot that echoed a certain Hans Christian Anderson folk tale, Neptune’s Daughter was crafted around Kellermann’s talents. Not only were her swimming and diving skills front and center in elaborate underwater set pieces, but that same “perfect body” that had lured vaudeville audiences to her shows was here yet again presented as a selling point. As Variety noted in its review of the film, men were likely to watch the film several times, “if only for the purpose of having another flash at the divine form of Kellermann, in this instance draped only by her hair, as the mystic power of the Witch s shell transforms her from a mermaid into a regular girl.”(Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)Her second feature, A Daughter of the Gods – reportedly the first ever million-dollar film production – further established Kellermann as a performer whose sheer physicality could command the screen. Yet again playing a water-based creature, the Australian swimmer-turned-actress turned heads for what’s considered the very first nude scene by a major star. Still, critics at the time admired her acting as much as her physicality: “Miss Kellermann aside from her daring feats, acted with great skill and gave a most creditable impersonation,” Moving Picture World noted in its review of A Daughter of the Gods.Kellermann’s creative input on these early productions, as well as later films like Queen of the Sea (1918), What Women Love (1920), and Venus of the South Seas (1924), put her in a league of equally influential film screen stars like Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford. The many death-defying stunts she performed – including jumping into pools with live crocodiles and diving from rocky cliffs, often shooting on location in Jamaica and Bermuda – established her as an action star whose showmanship and athleticism always went hand in hand. It’s no surprise to find that, decades later, another swimmer-turned-actress (MGM’s Esther Williams) would star in a musical biopic on her life in 1952’s Million Dollar Mermaid. Kellermann was a legend in her own time, a true pioneer who managed to make a name for herself with her body but never let herself be reduced to it. While most of her films have been lost, her extraordinary stunts surviving only in film reviews and printed features, she remains a pivotal figure in early cinema that deserves to be better known and appreciated. What Critics Said About Kellermann s Lost Films When They Were Released: A revelation (Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)“In several of the scenes Miss Kellerman, in white, close-fitting tights, gives entertaining exhibitions of swimming and diving, her graceful form standing out against the brushwood like a marble statue as she poses before she dives.” – The Daily Telegraph (Sydney)“[Kellerman] proves herself an accomplished actress, a mistress of the terpsichorean art, and an expert swordswoman, well worthy to be wooed and won by the King of the country she lands in.” – The Age (Melbourne) “There is one scene that particularly will live in the memory. Annette, a mortal, feels the lure of the water. Behind a bush in the forest she discards her peasant dress. Out darts a white-tighted figure. From a vegetation-faced cliff over an inland bit of still water Annette performs the evolutions that have thrilled her audiences in settings far different.” – George Blaisdell, Moving Picture World “Miss Kellerman, in a recent interview, said she did not wish to go in for swimming and diving any longer. She wanted a play in which she could have a dramatic part so she might be judged for her histrionic merits. In this production she has proven her right to such consideration.” – A. Danson Michell, Motion Picture News“The usual spectacular dives Miss Kellermann has become famed for are performed during the picture, and she gives visual evidence also of her remarkable ability to swim and of endurance, always in the water with a fish-tail (as a mermaid) that prevents the employment of her feet for assistance, swimming only with her hands. As a picture actress, Miss Kellerman is a revelation.” – Variety(Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)“Some admirable light and shade effects are revealed in the photographed scenery during the progress of the story, which has been ingenious ly developed and produced, and the performance throughout of Miss Kellermann as the child of the seas is as skillful as it is graceful and refined.” – The Daily Telegraph (Sydney)“Miss Kellermann aside from her daring feats, acted with great skill and gave a most creditable impersonation.” – Moving Picture World“Herbert Brenon placed his confidence in the appeal of the mass scene and Miss Kellermann s physical charm and skill in diving and swimming to carry the fanciful story along to success. His confidence, it would seem, was well placed.” – Motography“The beautiful figure of Annette Kellermann and her matchless skill as an amphibienne are made the most of in A Daughter of the Gods, the elaborate, spectacular and somewhat monotonous photofable which was unfolded for the first time last evening at the Lyric Theatre.” – The New York TimesOn an Apple device?

华体会体育登录 sidered the open fifth slot in the Best Actor race (noms for Joaquin Phoenix, Adam Driver, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Antonio Banderas were considered locks). Uncut Gems, in which Sandler plays a Diamond District gem dealer with a gambling problem and a complicated love life, is one of the actor’s best-reviewed movies, according to the Tomatometer.SURPRISE: Two Popes, Two Noms Jonathan Pryce Takes Coveted Fifth Slot in Best Actor Race, Anthony Hopkins Up for Supporting(Photo by Peter Mountain/©Netflix)As we said above, four of the Best Actor slots were seen as sure things going into Monday – Joaquin Phoenix, Adam Driver, Antonio Banderas, Leonardo DiCaprio – with the fifth slot considered open. Would it be Golden Globe-winner Taron Egerton for his portrayal of Elton John? Or Robert De Niro for his take on Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran? Turns out the fabulous pop star and the bloody house-painter would have to step aside for none other than his Holiness, Pope Francis, as played by Welsh actor Jonathan Pryce in Netflix’s Two Popes. The film generally made more of an impression than some were expecting, picking up noms not just for Pryce but also for co-star Anthony Hopkins, and for Best Adapted Screenplay.SNUB: Awkwafina and Lupita Nyong o Get No Love(Photo by ©A24, Claudette Barius/©Universal)Considering Awkwafina racked up a ton of nominations from critics groups, and Lupita Nyong o has been winning the Best Actress award from a lot of those same groups, it certainly came as a shock when neither of them managed to land a nod from the Oscars. The former earned rave reviews and a Golden Globes win for her nuanced work as a frustrated granddaughter coming to terms with her grandmother s terminal illness in Lulu Wang s deeply personal dramedy The Farewell, while the latter s dual turn, both as a mother trying to protect her family and as her evil doppelgänger, in Jordan Peele s Us blew everyone away and earned her a SAG Award nomination. Unfortunately, neither was good enough to merit a spot in the Academy s top five.SURPRISE: Cynthia Erivo Just an Oscar Win Away from EGOT STatus(Photo by Focus Features)Cynthia Erivo was always a chance for a nomination for her portrayal of Harriet Tubman in Focus Features’ rousing Harriet, but pundits favored Golden Globe winner Awkwafina for what was seen as the category’s open fifth slot. With The Farewell completely snubbed this morning, including its lead Awkwafina, the slot was open, and it went, as some expected, to Broadway star Erivo, who’s earned praise for a string of film roles over the last two years (Widows, Bad Times At The El Royale). Lupita Nyong’o and Alfre Woodard had been her fiercest competition for the coveted opening. The nomination puts Erivo one step closer to EGOT status, having earned a Tony, Grammy, and Emmy for her role as Celie in Broadway musical The Color Purple – she got her Daytime Emmy for a performance from the production on The Today Show. The smart money would say it’s not her year for a win, but as we’ve seen this morning, the Academy never ceases to surprise.SNUB: Apollo 11 Grounded by the Academy(Photo by ©Neon)The Best Documentary category may not be the most glamorous, but there was one film most believed would at least make the list, if not win it entirely. Apollo 11, the stunning chronicle of the eponymous space mission brought to life solely through archival footage, wowed critics to the tune of a near-unanimous Certified Fresh 99% on the Tomatometer, and it s been plowing through awards season picking up trophies from all of the major critics organizations. Alas, none of it was enough to earn recognition from the Academy, who, among their selections for Best Documentary, curiously saw fit instead to include Netflix s The Edge of Democracy, which isn t a bad film by any means, but it hasn t been nominated for pretty much anything else.SURPRISE: Honeyland Makes History (Photo by Ljubomir Stevanov/©Neon)North Macedonian film Honeyland quietly made history this morning, becoming the first movie nominated for both Best Documentary (Feature) and Best International Feature Film (the category formerly known as Best Foreign Language Film). It made history, too, as only the second North Macedonian movie to ever receive a nomination for the international category (the first was for the 1994 film Before the Rain). The film, shot over three years in a fly-on-the-wall style, focuses on a woman who uses ancient beekeeping techniques and traditions to produce honey in the Macedonian mountains, and the tensions that arise when a new nomadic family arrives and interferes with her livelihood. It remains one of the best-reviewed movies of 2019, Certified Fresh at 99% on the Tomatometer. [Editor s note: An earlier version of this story stated that Honeyland was the first nominated North Macedonian film; it is actually the second.]SNUB: Monday Morning’s Alright (For Fighting) for Largely Ignored Rocketman(Photo by @ Paramount Pictures)No need to clean your rose-tinted shades: Your eyes don’t deceive you – Elton John biopic was snubbed in a number of surprising categories. Perhaps the biggest shock was that Taron Egerton, who plays John in the film and took home a Golden Globe for his efforts (and sang all of his own vocals), missed out on a nomination for Best Actor. Other shockers for Rocketman: No love for Best Costume Design or Makeup and Hairstyling. The movie earned its sole nomination in the category of Original Song for “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again,” with music by Elton John and lyrics by Bernie Taupin.SURPRISE: That Toy Story 4 Song You Forgot About Is Up for an Oscar(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios)Did you even remember that Randy Newman had a song in Toy Story 4? Because we’ll be honest, we’d kinda forgotten (and so had most pundits, with the song barely registering a blip on the prognostication radar ahead of this morning’s nominations). But he does, and it’s called “I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away,” and it’s just been nominated for Best Original Song, pushing Beyoncé’s “Spirit” from The Lion King out of contention. The Newman song might be the most literal of the nominated tunes this year, playing over a montage of incidences in which Forky tries to throw himself away, and, well, Woody just can’t let him. This is Newman’s 21st Oscar nomination, and fourth Best Original Song nomination for a Toy Story movie.SNUB: Lulu Wang s The Farewell Shut Out Entirely(Photo by A24)We ve already covered how Awkwafina and Shuzhen Zhao were snubbed in the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories above, but considering how much of a phenomenon The Farewell was, it s incredible that it failed to garner any nominations at all. If the acting categories were too crowded, we thought perhaps writer-director Lulu Wang stood a chance of competing for Best Original Screenplay, but even there, she was supplanted by Sam Mendes 1917, whose Writers Guild Award nomination was the first recognition of the film s writing all season. Ever since The Farewell premiered, we ve been expecting to see it make some sort of appearance at the Oscars, but it looks like that s not going to happen after all.SURPRISE: Scarlett Johansson Earns Double Nominations, Joining Prestigious Company(Photo by ©Netflix, Larry Horricks/©Fox Searchlight Pictures)Maybe she can play a tree… Scarlett Johansson earned the distinction of being twice-nominated in a single year for her work in Marriage Story (Best Actress In a Leading Role) and in Jojo Rabbit (Best Actress In a Supporting Role). Johansson becomes just the 12th actor ever to be nominated for two awards in the same year, and, interestingly, one of her fellow nominees this year is among those names: Al Pacino was nominated for both Scent Of A Woman and Glengarry Glen Ross at the 65th Academy Awards. The last actor to earn double nominations in a single year was Cate Blanchett, nominated for Elizabeth: The Golden Age and I’m Not There at the 80th Awards. Double nominations seem to neither be a disadvantage nor advantage, with seven of the 11 past double nominees managing to win one of their awards, though no one has ever won both.SNUB: Dolemite Ignored Across the Board, Including for Best Costumes (What!?)(Photo by Francois Duhamel/Netflix)Adam Sandler wasn’t the only dark-horse SNL alum to miss out on a Best Actor slot this morning: Eddie Murphy, whose Dolemite Is My Name is one of the best-reviewed comedies of the year and whom many thought could ride the cresting Eddie-aissance to an Oscar nom, got no love today, and neither did the film generally, earning a total of zero nominations. The biggest snub for the Netflix comedy arguably came in the Costume Design category, where Ruth E. Carter, who took home the Oscar in the category last year for Black Panther, was considered a shoo-in and a favorite to win. Joker, on the other hand, was the surprise nominee for Best Costume Design, edging out Dolemite and Elton John biopic Rocketman.SURPRISE: Klaus Edges Out Frozen II in A Battle of Winter Animation(Photo by ©Netflix)We re not saying Klaus isn t a terrific film, because it is it s Certified Fresh at 93% with an Audience Score of 98% but that doesn t mean it s any less surprising that it managed to nab a nomination for Best Animated Feature over Frozen II. This is the first time since 2011 s Winnie the Pooh that a Walt Disney Animation film hasn t been nominated for the Oscar, and it s worth noting that the first Frozen even went on to win back in 2013. It used to be conventional wisdom that Disney s animated films and Pixar s various offerings would almost be guaranteed to earn Oscar nods, but this is just more evidence that times are changing, and there are more and more studios taking risks and producing incredible work in animation.The 92nd Academy Awards will be celebrated on Sunday, February 8 at 5pm PT /8pm ET and broadcast live on ABC.Are you as obsessed with awards as we are?
