Plus, all seven seasons of the ABC fairy tale series Once Upon a Time will finally be available as well.Find out what else the family-friendly streaming service offers in the month, starting with our top picks.Read also: Best Movies on Disney+ To Watch Right NowDisney+ Shows and Movies, Ranked by Tomatometer Summer is almost over, and as we enter the month of August, the big-name blockbusters are much fewer and farther between. The middle of the month boasts a whopping 10 new wide releases across just two weeks, but few of them would be considered must-see entertainment by most. That said, we ve still got a smattering of noteworthy films on the way, including the Fast Furious spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, a horror flick produced by Guillermo del Toro, and a raunchy coming-of-age comedy. Read on to find out the five most anticipated movies of August, as voted by Rotten Tomatoes users and our fans on social media.1. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) 67%3,845 Want-to-See Votes#1 pick by our Instagram and Facebook fans, #2 pick by our Twitter fansOpens August 2It ll likely surprise no one that this film is the most anticipated of the month. Not only is the Fast Furious franchise one of the most popular and profitable around the world, but Hobbs Shaw unites two of its most bankable stars, gives them plenty of scenery to chew and one-liners to spout at each other, and pits them against a superpowered Idris Elba, with copious mayhem and vehicular pyrotechnics to boot. It also helps that this August, like so many Augusts past, is chock-full of second-tier summer fare all jostling for a slice of the box office pie. Hobbs Shaw knows what it is a hypertuned injection of adrenaline for thrill-seeking audiences and doesn t pretend to be anything more, which is exactly how fans like it.2. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) 77%1,514 Want-to-See Votes#1 pick by our Twitter fans, #2 pick by our Facebook and Instagram fansOpens August 9Fan favorite director Guillermo del Toro s name is all over the marketing for Scary Stories, even though he s not the one behind the lens for this one. While André Øvredal is the man at the helm, the film fits rather neatly into del Toro s wheelhouse, so fans are excited to see what he is able to bring to the project as a producer. Of course, the main inspiration for the film is the series of children s horror books written by Alvin Schwartz, most notable for illustrator Stephen Gammel s terrifying artwork, and brought to life on screen as the manifestation of a young girl s secret writings. Scary Stories ranked at the top of the list for our Twitter fans this month, while our Facebook and Instagram fans voted it the second most anticipated.3. Good Boys (2019)1,271 Want-to-See Votes#3 pick by our Instagram and Twitter fans, #4 pick by our Facebook fansOpens August 16Coming-of-age films usually come in two varieties: the heartfelt drama and the raucous comedy. Good Boys fits squarely into the latter category, setting a trio of almost-teens (Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams) loose on a caper to replace a damaged drone that takes them to places and through situations they ve never experienced before. It also happens to be rated R, implying these kids will get up to some very adult shenanigans. The film premiered earlier this year at South by Southwest to fairly strong reviews, and its promise of outlandish comedy was enough to propel it to #3 in our Instagram and Twitter polls.4a.

Comic book stories get a boost on streaming, Covid-19 causes some talent to pass on jobs requiring air travel, new trailers include WandaVision and The Undoing, and more news from the world of TV and streaming.TOP STORYThe Boys Spinoff Is in the Works(Photo by James Minchin/Amazon Prime Video)Clearly fans cannot get enough of The Boys, so Amazon Studios has greenlit development of a spin-off series from Sony Pictures Television. Here s the description: Set at America s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International), the Untitled Boys Spinoff is an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys. The spin-off is from Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television in association with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises, and Original Film. The Boys is based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and season 2 of The Boys had the most-watched global launch of an Amazon Original series ever.Craig Rosenberg is writing the pilot for the spinoff and set as showrunner/EP, falling under his overall deal with Sony Pictures Television. Rosenberg, Eric Kripke; Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver; and Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty are executive producers. Ennis and Robertson also serve as executive producers.The Suicide Squad Writer and Director James Gunn Will Write and Direct John Cena in the Peacemaker Series(Photo by HBO Max)It’s an action-adventure-comedy about a man who wants peace so badly he’s willing to kill for it: meet Peacemaker! Wrestling champion-turned-actor John Cena is already playing the DC Comics character in the August 2021 big-screen The Suicide Squad movie, and now HBO Max is expanding Peacemaker’s world with an eight-episode series written and directed by The Suicide Squad movie writer and director James Gunn. Specifics are scarce, but the streaming service confirms the series will explore the origins of Peacemaker, the “master of weapons” and a man who “believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.” The series is scheduled to begin production early in 2021, before Gunn turns his attention to production on the third Guardians of the Galaxy film.“Peacemaker is an opportunity to delve into current world issues through the lens of this superhero/supervillain/and world’s biggest douchebag,” Gunn says. “I’m excited to expand The Suicide Squad and bring this character from the DC film universe to the full breadth of a series.”Nick Fury Marvel Disney+ Series Reportedly in the Works with Samuel L. Jackson Reprising His MCU Role(Photo by Paramount Network)And Nick Fury makes eight! That s the number of series Marvel Studios has in the works for Disney+, according to a new report that quotes unnamed sources who say that Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role from the MCU films. The exact plot details of the show are being kept under wraps, but multiple sources say Jackson is attached to star with Kyle Bradstreet attached to write and executive produce, according to the Variety article.Tony Gilroy and Liv Tyler Change Rogue One and 9-1-1: Lone Star Plans Because of Pandemic Travel Concerns(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)Tony Gilroy has dropped out as a director on the upcoming Disney+ Rogue One spin-off series. Gilroy, who will remain as showrunner and executive producer of the series, lives in New York, and didn’t feel comfortable travelling to the U.K. where the spin-off will be filmed. Instead, U.K.-based Toby Haynes will direct the first three episodes of the series starring Diego Luna reprising his movie role as Cassian Andor. Haynes, who directed the Emmy-winning “USS Callister” episode of Black Mirror, is also the lead director on Amazon’s upcoming John Cusack drama Utopia. (Deadline)For similar reasons, Liv Tyler won’t return for season 2 of Fox’s hit drama 9-1-1: Lone Star. She commuted from her London home to Los Angeles for the first season, but concerns about transatlantic travel with her young children during the pandemic led her to end her run at one year. Gina Torres has joined the series as the new paramedic captain. (Deadline)Battlestar Galactica Fans Raising Money for Actor Michael Hogan After Serious Fall Leaves Him Unable to Work(Photo by Justin Stephens / © SCI-FI / Courtesy: Everett Collection)Generous fans of Battlestar Galactica and actor Michael Hogan have raised nearly 0,000 for the BSG cast member, after a fall in February caused bleeding in his brain. The injury, which happened at a dinner following a fan convention in Vancouver, left Hogan with complete paralysis on his left side, memory loss, cognitive impairment and an inability to swallow, according to his wife, actress Susan Hogan. The pandemic then complicated his hospitalization and care even further, not only limiting Susan’s ability to have contact with her husband, but limiting certain medical professionals from treating him for months.Hogan, who played Colonel Saul Tigh on BSG and most recently played the ex-convict father of Nathan Grant on the seventh season of Hallmark’s drama When Calls the Heart, is, of course, unable to work currently, and, months later, still faces a very long and expensive road to recovery. A friend and neighbor of the Hogans established a Go Fund Me page with the goal of raising 0,000 for Michael’s care, and donations from fans, BSG co-stars like Tricia Helfer and James Callis and When Calls the Heart director Peter DeLuise, and other industry professionals have helped in getting the ongoing effort close to that amount.NEW TRAILERS: The Undoing: Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant’s Happy Marriage Turns Tragic in David E.

(Variety)神魔大陆 坐骑The comic book Y: The Last Man, by writer Brian K. Vaughn and artist Pia Guerra, opens with an idea that is simply expressed but complex in its meaning: What if all but one man suddenly died? Debuting in 2002, the series explored that idea for 60 issues, reaching an interesting conclusion. But even before the final issue was published, the comic book was on its way to becoming a film. Nearly 15 years later, that film has not materialized; instead, FX on Hulu’s adaptation, also called Y: The Last Man, debuts today.In the decades since the comic’s debut, its basic question has become an even more complex notion. As showrunner Eliza Clark told Rotten Tomatoes, it is as much about “identity and the way that oppressive systems conspire to inform our identities” as it is about observing the last “man” on Earth as he searches for a way to continue the species.Nevertheless, we also spoke to star Ben Schnetzer about playing Yorick, the titular man in a world where maleness is determined by more than the Y chromosome. We also chatted with Olivia Thirlby, who plays Yorick’s sister, Hero, about her journey, the tough bonds of family and, along with Clark and Schnetzer, the scope of Y as a television show.A World Of Browns(Photo by Rafy Winterfeld/FX)As much as the series is about its provocative premise, it is also about the Brown family: mother Jennifer (Diane Lane) and her children, Yorick and Hero. Jennifer is a tough and seasoned US Senator, and Yorick and Hero enjoy a certain amount of luxury as children of privilege. Before “The Event,” which utterly changes the world, they both live in New York. Hero gets by as a paramedic while Yorick teaches magic and prepares an escapology routine he expects to be his ticket to fame. And, as viewers will discover, they are typical siblings. “They are angry at each other a lot of the time,” Thirlby said. “But they re sort of bonded in this shared experience of being Jennifer s kids. I don t think there s a very big margin of error when you re Jennifer s kids, so they always had to look out for each other in a very specific kind of way.”Then, The Event happens and all mammals carrying the Y chromosome – except Yorick and his pet monkey Ampersand – drop dead. Jennifer ends up in charge of preserving the US government while Yorick and Hero (who is unaware her brother is alive) set off on very different journeys.(Photo by Brendon Meadows/FX)According to Clark, the three viewpoints were inspired by the early issues of Y, which also split its time between several characters in different parts of the world. But by centering on Jennifer, Yorick, and Hero as the major viewpoint characters in the television show, an opportunity to “see inside these worlds a little bit more deeply” presented itself.“It s a large ensemble,” added Thirlby. “It s about many stories unfolding simultaneously. It s about people who don t know that they re in a TV show, so their understanding of their own world is pretty complete.” In her view, part of the fun for the audience is keeping in mind the characters’ certainty in the face of severe knowledge gaps; it leads to a lot of tension for the characters and the viewer.The Escape Artist(Photo by Rafy Winterfeld/FX)Though it is an ensemble which includes Amber Tamblyn as a Washington insider (despite the character’s own protests to the contrary), Ashley Romans as a secret agent tasked with keeping Yorick alive, and Elliot Fletcher as Hero’s traveling companion Sam – the show is called Y: The Last Man. Therefore, Schnetzer’s character is primary thanks to his Y chromosome. That said, fans of the book may be surprised by the Yorick they meet in the first episode.“Yorick s kind of guileless, disarming humor reads in a particular way, beautifully, in the panels of a graphic novel,” the actor said. “But we wanted to make him a little more vulnerable, and a little more human, in a way that would read in the three dimensions of a series on screen.” The initial innocence (and obliviousness) of the comic book character gave way to something a little more, well, privileged. “I wasn t thinking consciously about it when we were filming it, but definitely, there s a part of him that is spoiled, and it is very privileged,” Schnetzer said. “[It’s] the idea of Yorick being a really unlikely candidate for the role he finds himself in… There s no nobility going into it. We wanted to give him a runway to discover that through the trials of the show that lay before him.”Yorick’s introduction may present him as somewhat unpleasant, but Clark said the hope is that viewers will still “like him even though you re like, ‘Ugh, this f ing idiot.’”(Photo by Rafy Winterfeld/FX)“I really love Yorick and want him to succeed,” she continued. “And I think the story needs you to like him in spite of the ways he really has so much growing up to do.”Part of his journey to maturity will be his travels with Agent 355 (Romans), an element fans will recognize from the book, though Schnetzer felt it was important to “un-know” that aspect of the story so he and Romans could build the rapport between their characters in an organic way. “It was really important to understand who these people were before they knew each other,” he said of the preparation. It proved to be a tightrope, as some takes would end with him wondering if the characters were too familiar for an escape artist and secret agent at the start of their journey across the ruins of America. Nevertheless, he felt the early episodes provide “a bit of an origin story for this relationship,” which will lead to a “Butch and Sundance” dynamic.They will also meet a third traveling companion, Dr. Mann (Diana Bang), along the way. “Her eccentricity and her sense of purpose bonds 355 and Yorick,” he teased, also suggesting that Dr. Mann may create some doubt about 355 in Yorick’s mind. “It just adds a whole different flavor to things,” he said.The Wanderer(Photo by Rafy Winterfeld/FX)Perhaps for more than any of the other Browns, Hero’s story is one of survival – even before The Event. “[It’s about] her capacity to navigate her own traumas,” Thirlby said. “But also asking the question, does she have the strength and the capacity to have the will to survive, given some of what she s experienced and the way that she s coped with that?” That question will lead her on a very different path than Yorick’s, much of which we can only tease, as it greatly redefines the state she is in when comic book readers first met her. One thing we will mention: she has little interest in meeting up with Jennifer. “Her relationship with her mother is a little bit too fraught,” she said. And whether or not that relationship is examined more closely later in the series, the Hero who prepares to leave Manhattan after The Event “does not want to continue her role as a daughter in this world.”Instead, she strikes out into the wide world with Sam, a trans man who is an entirely new character for the series. “They love to be their own little unit and look down on everyone else around them,” she said of their dynamic before The Event. “I think [when] they met, it started instantly with their shared eyeroll about the larger social circle that they happen to be sitting in.”(Photo by Rafy Winterfeld/FX)Of course, the world after The Event will test their bond and prove it is more complex than a shared sense of superiority. “Their friendship is really unusual,” she said. “It s many things rolled into one. It s a best friendship. There s a deep intimacy that they share. There is the desire to be drawn together, romantically and sexually, that I think they both resist a lot of the time for totally different reasons.” To Thirlby, the malleable nature of their relationship is one of the show’s strengths as it examines “the way that people connect outside of the normal confines of what we re used to seeing.”“There s a lot of love there, [but] I think there s a lot of toxicity too,” Clark added. “They enable one another.” One thing that is solely Hero’s motivation is a sense of shame for something she does just prior to The Event. “She s looking for consequences… and they get into dangerous situations because of Hero s shame,” she explained. It may be different from the comic book, but Clark felt it was important to strongly define who Hero was before The Event in light of “who she becomes.” Readers of the book will have a pretty good idea what that means, even if the show approaches the concept from a different angle.The Commander(Photo by Rafy Winterfeld/FX)Meanwhile, Jennifer remains in the Pentagon trying to maintain a semblance of a working government. It represents some of the program’s most harrowing post-apocalyptic moments because they are so close to reality. “Our [real] power grid is poorly constructed and needs constant maintenance. It s a patchwork of random systems,” Clark said. “Same is true for our infrastructure. It is crumbling now.” Then add the historic gender inequalities in the workplace and Jennifer faces a situation where she has, potentially, a single woman running a hydroelectric dam. “There might be a woman who works at the dam – she might be one of two – can she handle it entirely by herself? Maybe her talents might be better used at a different kind of emergency,” Clark said of the problems just with maintaining electricity after The Event. At some point, Jennifer, who is aided by a dynamic and diverse staff also dealing with the personal aftermath of The Event, is pretty much just “putting her finger in the dam.”“The extent of the problems just gets bigger and bigger,” she continued. Nevertheless, part of expanding Jennifer’s role in the story verses the comic book was to illustrate a situation in which “people who really are super capable” try to patch the holes left in society after The Event.(Photo by Rafy Winterfeld/FX)Complicating the patch job is a continuing political opposition represented by Tamblyn’s Kimberly. “She is a person who has aligned herself with the patriarchy and gotten basically all of her power and her identity from her proximity to men,” Clark explained. In the wake of The Event, and Jennifer assuming power, Kimberly is left grasping for the old ways and reinforcing the binary roles she understood. The character could easily lend itself to caricature, but viewers will find Kimberly is a surprisingly complex (and compassionate) foe. “[It’s] Amber Tamblyn like you ve never seen her before,” Clark said.And this is all before Jennifer can contemplate sending a rescue unit for Hero or even dare to hope Yorick is alive. But once it becomes possible that her son is the last Y chromosome-carrying human on Earth, she will be forced to view it through the lens of her political liabilities. “She s had to compromise from the beginning, and it puts her in a gray moral area that is, I think, super interesting to watch, Clark said of the problems any reunion might cause.The World Of YRyan FujitaniOf course, the Brown Family represent just a part of Y: The Last Man’s world. There is Jennifer’s staff some of whom absolutely steal scenes the unique challenges Sam faces on the road with Hero, and one re-imagining of a comic book character we can only reference in the broadest terms. But perhaps, for now, it is best viewers begin the journey alongside as Jennifer, Yorick, and Hero and discover the world of Y for themselves.Y: The Last Man premieres on FX on Hulu on Wednesday, September 13, 2021.On an Apple device?

12. Will Gardner (Josh Charles), The Good Wife 93%(Photo by CBS)When it came time for Charles to depart the series on which he d starred for five seasons, his character, Will, didn’t just move to another city. He was shot to death by his own client in the courtroom in a legitimately shocking episode made all the more impactful by the fact that news of Charles imminent exit did not leak beforehand.11. Charlie Pace (Dominic Monaghan), Lost 85%(Photo by ABC)It’s hard to single out one death from Lost since the show was so good at making us attached to every character. In the end, it had to be Charlie sacrificing himself to warn Desmond it was NOT PENNY’S BOAT radioing the Oceanic survivors.10. Wallace (Michael B. Jordan), The Wire 94%(Photo by HBO)Jordan was only 15 when he played a teenage drug dealer on HBO’s landmark series The Wire, making the moment when druglord Stringer Bell (Idris Elba) orders his murder all the more tragic.9. Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Game of Thrones 89%(Photo by HBO)The Mother of Dragons and Breaker of Chains went power mad in the final moments of the series as she ascended to became ruler of Westeros. Ultimately, however, she wasn t even able to sit on the Iron Throne she d dreamed about as a kid; she was betrayed by her lover-nephew, Jon Snow/Aegon Targaryen (Kit Harington), who professed his loyalty, then kissed her while stabbing her in the heart mere feet from her father s throne.8. Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), Downton Abbey on Masterpiece 86%(Photo by ITV)Crawley estate heir Matthew was so happy to be a new father that he took his eyes off the road to appreciate nature, causing the fatal accident that shocked viewers. Fans later found out that Stevens wanted off the show to explore other opportunities.7. Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), Prison Break 60%(Photo by Fox)Callies could have made our list as Lori Grimes in The Walking Dead for her death during pregnancy, but on Prison Break her head was in a box! Fans demanded her return, so she came back and even showed up in the Fox reboot for a fifth season. At the time during season 3, her demise sure felt permanent.6. Joyce Summers (Kristine Sutherland), Buffy the Vampire Slayer 83%(Photo by The WB)Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) herself came back to life twice, but her mother Joyce did not have magic to resurrect her. For all the supernatural demons and monsters on Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Buffy spent one very real hour dealing with a loved one’s death.5. Denny Duquette (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Grey's Anatomy 84%(Photo by ABC)Denny s death was a real gut punch, because throughout the entire second season of the long-running medical drama, it looked like Izzie (Katherine Heigl) had done everything to save her patient-boyfriend, including violating protocol to get him a heart transplant. The transplant itself took, but Denny still died of a blood clot and stroke. The silver lining is this role made Morgan a star.4. Catelyn, Robb, and pregnant Talisa Stark + direwolf Grey Wind (Michelle Fairley, Richard Madden, Oona Chaplin), Game of Thrones 89%While earlier deaths in the HBO hit fantasy series tipped fans off that anyone could go at any time, the episode nicknamed The Red Wedding (season 3, episode 9 The Rains of Castamere ) took Game of Thrones death pools to another level. Half of the surviving Stark family died in the massacre carried out by Lord Walder Frey and his murderous brood: family matriarch Catelyn, King in the North Robb, his wife Talisa, and their unborn child. And while Roose Bolton was thrusting a dagger into Robb, his men outside killed Robb s direwolf, Grey Wind, further stunning an audience that was perhaps hoping the animal might avenge its faithful human companion.3. Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), The Walking Dead 80%On another show where anyone could go at any time, The Walking Dead really psyched people out over the death of main character Glenn. First they made everyone think he died in a walker horde, but then he was somehow safe under a dumpster. Later, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) beat him beyond recognition as, with his last words, he called out to wife Maggie (Lauren Cohan).2. Ned Stark (Sean Bean), Game of Thrones 89%By the end, almost no Game of Thrones death was shocking, but this was the first — and it was the one that told viewers that if the star of the show could die, anyone could. It happened just when things were looking up for Bean, after famously dying in Goldeneye and Lord of the Rings too. For a while, the meme #DontKillSeanBean became a thing.1. Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia), This Is Us 93%After Jack escaped the Pearson family s burning house — saving everyone and the dog — fans all breathed a collective sigh of relief. But he wasn t safe yet. Viewers were gobsmacked when This Is Us delivered the cruelest twist, killing Jack with a massive heart attack related to smoke inhalation. Because of the NBC series unique format, however, this is one character that fans get to spend time with even after he s dead.

Few films have left their mark on the popular culture the way that 1984 s The Karate Kid has. Even kids who didn t rush to see it in theaters in June of that year, or didn t grow up wearing down the tape on their VHS copy of the film, can recite the movie s most famous lines – Sweep the leg! – and recall its most indelible images. But more than iconic one-liners and memorable fights, what sticks with us about The Karate Kid are its key relationships, namely those between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and mentor Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita) and Daniel and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka).So fierce and so memorable was the rivalry between Daniel and Johnny that more than three decades after the first Karate Kid movie was released, YouTube Originals re-ignited it for the streaming series Cobra Kai, the second season of which has just dropped online. Except now the tables had turned, and one-time-bully Johnny was the sympathetic anti-hero.As we gear up for another round with Daniel and Johnny – and if their coy responses to our questions indicate, a potential slew of cameos from fans favorite characters – we sat down with Macchio and Zabka to go back to the beginning. In this oral history of The Karate Kid, the two men recall the time they met as kids, their pre-Karate Kid experience with martial arts ( I had no technique, I had no idea ), working with Pat Morita, and the impact the movie would have on their teen years and their lives. From audition to their climactic on-screen showdown, this is Macchio and Zabka s story of the time they became the world s most famous karate kids.What follows is a history of The Karate Kid (1984) and reflection upon the film, drawn from a sit-down interview with Macchio and Zabka.ALSO WATCH: ORAL HISTORY OF COBRA KAI WITH RALPH MACCHIO AND WILLIAM ZABKA“As a kid, you re jumping around and fighting imaginary bad guys, you know?”Ralph Macchio: “When I was about 10 or so, for Christmas I got a certificate for the local jiu-jitsu school of self defense — obviously, mom and dad said, ‘We gotta help this guy out a little bit,’ I don t know — for me and my brother. So we went, and I took a handful of lessons. I liked it.”William Zabka: “My relationship with karate before Karate Kid was all in my imagination. As a kid growing up, I would just run around and do fake fights, and I d be in the backyard with sticks, but I had no technique, I had no idea. I took no classes before Karate Kid. I was a wrestler in high school, so I was limber, and I had a lot of conditioning, so I was prepared to learn the training for karate, and martial arts but I didn t know any real [moves]. It was all in my mind. As a kid, you re jumping around and fighting imaginary bad guys, you know?” I can t guarantee you anything right now, but if I were you, I d take some karate lessons. Macchio: “My first conversation about being Daniel LaRusso was with our director John Avildsen, who I auditioned for, and … it s the first time ever I ever read the words to that character. It s Avildsen explaining the character, explaining what he s going through, explaining the story leading up to my audition scene, which was the scene from the film where Daniel wakes up after the skeleton fight at the fence and Miyagi saves the day, and he s asking all these questions.(Photo by ©Columbia Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection)That’s my earliest memory of the character. I didn t have the part yet, but I did remember John Avildsen saying to me, ‘I can t guarantee you anything right now, but if I were you, I d take some karate lessons.’ Which doesn t often happen. That was a pretty exciting moment. And then a couple more hoops to jump through, and here I am, I got to be Daniel LaRusso.” Watch your mouth, asshole. Zabka: “Through my manager, I got a phone call to come in, they want to talk to you. So I went to Columbia Pictures at that time, and drove through the gate and went to a bungalow. I just came directly from the gym, and I was in my tank top, probably wearing a headband or something. I went in and they said, ‘There s this movie called Karate Kid. We think you d be great for this part of Johnny. Go home and read it, and come back and audition tomorrow for John Avildsen.’So I went home and read the script, and Johnny s this karate master and he s a motorcycle gang leader. He s the bad guy. I m like, ‘Oh, my gosh, I don t know karate. I don t know how ride motorcycles.’ But there was one scene in the script that I really connected to, and somehow I just connected to the character. I ran it through in my living room a bunch of times, and then the next day went and met John Avildsen. He was sitting in a chair. He had his camera. He always had his video camera filming everything. And it was a scene cut out of the movie, where I hand Daniel a death certificate at the water fountain. And he said, ‘What s this for?’ And I go, ‘You gotta get your mommy to sign it so you could be in the tournament with the big boys.’ And he says, ‘I thought it was supposed to be no contact.’ And I say, ‘Accidents happen.’(Photo by ©Columbia Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection)And then I walk away, and he goes, ‘Hey, you think he might be wrong?’ And I go, ‘Who?’ And he goes, ‘Your instructor, your sensei, you think he might be wrong?’ And then my line is, ‘Watch your mouth, asshole.’ So on that line, that s when I walked over to John Avildsen and grabbed him — which you don t do — and I said, ‘Watch your mouth, asshole.’ And I pushed him back, and the room was still. And that s where the scene was supposed to end, but everybody was still watching me, so I improv’d and went to the door. I said, ‘Read it and weep. I ll see you in the tournament.’ And went out in the waiting room, and came in, took my headband off, which I was wearing, and I said, ‘I m sorry, I m sorry. That was Johnny. I m Billy.’ He goes, ‘So how old are you?’ He got kind of interested, and he goes, ‘You re a little taller than our karate kid.’ And I m like, ‘Yeah, well, Bruce Lee was smaller than Kareem Abdul Jabbar.’ He goes, ‘Well, you got a point. All right, thanks, kid.’ And that was that.”“We were friendly, but we weren t [best friends].”Macchio: “[Zabka and I] trained differently. We both trained with Pat Johnson, who did all the fight choreography. He s the referee in The Karate Kid film. He would train myself and Pat Morita in a classic Okinawan style, and he would train Billy and the Cobra Kai guys in a more aggressive style of martial arts. Most of the scenes we did together we were either yelling at each other or I was getting my ass kicked. So we were friendly, but we weren t [best friends]. I had the whole Miyagi side of the story, and the romance side of the story. The movie was always in three sections for me. We ve become closer friends over the years and certainly when Pat passed away we became closer friends just through the loss of him and moving forward, and the fact that this film has stood the test of time. It s a big part of not only American cinema, but also pop culture. And then here we are back again in tandem. So it s been quite a journey.”Zabka: “My memory of working with Ralph was we were best friends instantly. I m surprised to hear you say that we were separated. We have to talk after this.I think John Avildsen really created the chemistry by casting all the right people for this. He cast the right Tommy, Bobby, Dutch, and Jimmy. … It was almost like he created this little universe for us. We hung around all the time. We went to lunch every day. We rode motorcycles together, we trained together. We really got into a pack mentality. Ralph and I did our fight scene for the tournament every day we could for three months, so we were working together constantly. I mean, feet and fists were flying, so we had to take care of each other in that way. But the Cobra Kais, they were like my brothers, and they still are in real life.”“It s like a strawberry shortcake and a cannoli. Macchio: “Ali with an ‘i.’ That character is arguably what starts the rivalry, the feud, if you will. Like all good wars, a beautiful woman, and that s the end of that. [Elisabeth Shue] was just coming out of the gate at that point. And John Avildsen would see me and Lisa — Lisa Shue was what we called her — and he would say, ‘You
To no one’s surprise, Frozen II led the Thanksgiving holiday with a five-day haul of 6.3 million, with .3 million of that coming over the weekend. That is the eighth-best second weekend of all time, wedged between Disney’s 2017 Beauty and the Beast (.4 million) and, well, Disney’s Incredibles 2 (.34 million). Overall, the film has grossed 7.6 million in 10 days, which is the 15th-best ever for 10 days, between Captain America: Civil War (5.96 million) and The Dark Knight Rises (7.11 million). It is the 25th film to have grossed over 0 million in its first 10 days of release. Only three of those films (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Furious 7, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) failed to reach 0 million total. Amongst the 12 other films to have million-plus second weekends, only one of them (Avengers: Age of Ultron) failed to reach 0 million total. However, only two of those movies opened in the holiday season (Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar). Frozen II has already amassed another 1 million worldwide for a total of 8 million as it marches to become another billion grosser for Disney.Fresh Surprise: Knives Out Shows Original Films Can Still Murder At the Box Office It wasn t a total surprise for us at RT – we had placed it in the top 5 holiday earners in our winter box office preview – but Rian Johnson’s Knives Out surpassed all tracking service expectations by earning .7 million since opening Wednesday. The .7 million it earned over the weekend puts it amongst the top 20 Thanksgiving holiday weekends ever – and it is just the fifth film not rated “G” or “PG” to be on that list. Some 61 films have opened in November and grossed over million in their first five days; only four (Pokemon: The First Movie, Dumb and Dumber To, The Muppets, and Unbreakable) failed to reach at least 0 million total. That means Knives Out could join Hustlers, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Us as the only films not based on a previous film or property to reach that milestone in 2019.The Top 10 and Beyond: Queen and Slim Gets a Solid Start, Word-of-Mouth Boosts Beautiful Day(Photo by © Universal)It was back and forth over the holiday for third place, but James Mangold’s Ford v Ferrari won the race with .22 million over the weekend and .99 million for the five days. No film opening in November to have grossed at least million in 17 days has failed to reach 0 million. Ford v Ferrari currently stands at million, but its magic number is still going to be around 0 million globally to find its way into profit. With just over 3 million internationally, it is still less than 60% of the way there.Marielle Heller’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood got the word-of-mouth bump over the holiday we were expecting. It is now outpacing Roland Emmerich’s Midway, which just passed the million mark this weekend. Gothika, Starship Troopers, and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms are the only November films to have million after 10 days and not finish with at least million. Midway is looking to join that list given its third weekend (.95 million) was less than what those three films earned in their third weekend. Meanwhile, the Mr. Rogers film, which stands at just over million to date, had a better second weekend (.8 million) than any live-action film in November to have million or less by day 10 of wide release (aside from Jingle All the Way). This suggests that a final gross over million is still very possible for the million-budgeted film.The other newbie of the week was Melina Matsoukas’s Certified Fresh Queen Slim, which grossed .7 million over the weekend and .8 million over the full holiday. That is 0,000 more than what Widows had last year in its first five days before ultimately finishing with million. Last week’s cop thriller, 21 Bridges, is up to just .45 million after 10 days, which puts it in After the Sunset/Delivery Man territory. Its second weekend (.82 million) was about million less than the Vince Vaughn comedy and 21 Bridges may be up at around just - million when it leaves theaters. Finally, Todd Phillips’ Joker spent its eighth straight week in the top 10. It has passed 0 million domestic, .048 billion worldwide, and is Warner Bros. fourth-highest grossing film of all time. Joker also passed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides to become the 35th highest-grossing film of all time.This Time Last Year: Another Possession Could Not Scare Ralph From Top Spot(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)It was the weekend after Thanksgiving so grosses were down a bit, but still a lot of people were going to the movies. The only major new release was The Possession of Hannah Grace, which opened in seventh place with .4 million. Ralph Breaks the Internet was again on top with .56 million, passing the 0 million mark. The Grinch moved up to second with .92 million, enough to pass the 0 million line. Creed II fell back to third with .63 million and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald had the steepest fall in the top 10 (61.3%) to .36 million. The top 10 films grossed a total of 6.19 million and averaged 61.4% on the Tomatometer; this year’s top 10 grossed an estimated 6.98 million over the weekend and averaged 67.3% with critics.On the Vine: A Balloon Adventure and an Acclaimed Romance Set to Light Up Indie Box OfficeThe weekend after Thanksgiving is usually a dead zone for new releases and indeed only one film is going wide and that is the oft-delayed animated film from STX, Playmobil: The Movie. The million production was moved from January to April to August and then into December. It has grossed just .4 million in international waters to date, and may have trouble matching that here.

Young actor Roman Griffin Davis makes his feature film debut as the title character in Taika Waititi s Jojo Rabbit, an anti-hate satire about a pre-teen Nazi who deals with the stresses of WWII Germany by talking to his imaginary friend Adolf. (Yes, that Adolf.) Davis s performance is being heralded by critics as one of the best child debuts in years – he s hilarious and heartbreaking, nimbly navigating the tonal shifts Waititi s movie makes as Jojo befriends the Jewish girl his mother is hiding in the house and begins to question his blind allegiance to the Fuhrer (both the real and imagined one). Davis sat down with Rotten Tomatoes for our video series Fresh First and opened up about working with Waititi and Scarlett Johansson, how he s changed since shooting, and why cheese toasties are the ideal on-set snack.
神魔大陆 坐骑 Join us weekly as Rotten Tomatoes reports on what s opening, expanding, and coming to the specialty box office. From promising releases from new voices to experimental efforts from storied filmmakers – or perhaps the next indie darling to go the distance for end-of-year accolades – we will break it all down for you here each week in Fresh Indie Finds. This week at the specialty box office, we have a horror film about a sinister dress, an atmospheric teen thriller from writer-director Jennifer Reeder, and a SXSW favorite about a troubled college freshman who s revisited by his childhood imaginary friend. In our spotlight section, we have the French love story Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and in our indie trailer section, we have a new clip from a film co-starring Peter Dinklage and the second trailer for the Shia LaBeouf-penned and Alma Har el-directed Honey Boy.Opening This Weekend
In the midst of Super Bowl weekend, M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass managed to fulfill its destiny: three weeks in the box-office top spot with very little competition to speak of, this weekend earning .5 million. But it was a slow week overall at the movies. The last time the box office had a victor that grossed under million was the three-day Labor Day weekend of 2015 when War Room led with .4 million. Meanwhile, the biggest competition for Glass, The Upside, is going to come close to matching the Shyamalan film s final total when all is said and done for both films at the box office. Adam Sandler could be eyeing his first Oscar nomination if the buzz out of Telluride and the Toronto International Film Festival for his newest film, Uncut Gems, is anything to go by. Reviews for the Safdie brothers (Good Time) latest are glowing, with critics singling out Sandler for career-best work as a jewelry dealer in Manhattan’s Diamond District who finds himself pursued by criminals when a precious gem goes missing. Rotten Tomatoes Editor Jacqueline Coley spoke to Sandler and co-stars Idina Menzel, Lakeith Stanfield, and Julia Fox in Toronto, where the raves were still pouring in. The four talk about working with the Josh and Benny Safdie, two of cinema’s most sought-after and buzzed-about directors; sharing the screen with NBA legend Kevin Garnett and musician The Weeknd; and finding pockets of calm on the set of such a kinetic film.
Okja director Bong Joon-ho Enters the Race for the Palme d Or with ParasiteJoel MearesWednesday, May 22: Day 10 of the Cannes film festival was an all-the-café conversation focused on who will take home the top prize. Current Palme d’Or frontrunners Portrait of a Girl on Fire, Pain Glory, and Les Misérables got some new competition late Tuesday night with premiere of Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite (2019) 98%. The Korean director’s follow-up to 2016’s Okja is an instant critical darling that earned rapturous bursts of applause not just at the end of its critics’ screening, but also in the middle of it, according to Vulture. Jessica Kiang of Variety called Bong’s social thriller Roaringly furious, because [its] target is so deserving…Parasite is a tick fat with the bitter blood of class rage. With just one day of competition films left before the closing night ceremony, most of the pundits agree one of the favorites above will walk away with the top prize – well unless Tarantino can pull off a shocker with Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.No voice for Sharon Tate? Tarantino and Robbie push back.Wednesday, May 22: The buzz and spectacle of the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood premiere undoubtedly stole some attention away from Parasite’s impressive debut: two days after the fictionalized retelling of the Manson Family murders debuted, it s still dominating the festival headlines. Reports broke late on Tuesday night that hundreds of ticket holders were turned away from the premiere; as some had paid as much as ,200 to secure one ticket to the starry event, and many members of the press were among those turned away, the festival was forced to issue an apology for the mixup. Then Wednesday afternoon Tarantino continued to make headlines during a press conference when he rejected the hypothesis of a question that said Margot Robbie had limited dialogue portraying the Manson Family murder victim, Sharon Tate. The Aussie actress, however, was quick to counter the assumption saying, I think the moments I was on screen gave a moment to honor Sharon, I think the tragedy was the loss of innocence. To show the wonderful sides of her could be done without speaking. I did feel like I got a lot of time to explore the character without dialogue, which is an interesting thing. Rarely do I get an opportunity to spend so much time on my own as a character.

In Hollywood (2019) 85%, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie. Before the curtains parted for the screening of the Hollywood drama that s loosely based on the Manson Family s murder of Sharon Tate and others, Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Frémaux reiterated (in English and French) Tarantino s plea to avoid spoilers when discussing the film. It s debatable if such precautions were needed, but as of yet, most critics are keeping the key plot points out of reviews. Angeleno Tarantino was six years old when the Manson Murders rocked Hollywood and the nation, and critics are calling Once Upon A Time in Hollywood a deeply personal and violent ode to the summer of 69. While 1960s Hollywood played out on the screen, today s Hollywood looked: Timothée Chalamet, Chloe Sevigny, Diego Luna, Xavier Dolan, Tilda Swinton, Dakota and Elle Fanning, Chris Tucker, and Adrien Brody were all spotted at the premiere. Tarantino s close friend and Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez was also on hand to congratulate and celebrate with cast and crew and gave us his one-word review: Outstanding! After enjoying a six-minute standing ovation at the premiere, Pitt, DiCaprio, and Tarantino headed to a glitzy after-party at the JW Marriott joined by most of the star power on the Rivera. During the party, Tarantino chatted with guests about film, Cannes memories, and was in high spirits. When we caught up with him, we asked if he wanted to know the Tomatometer score for the film (which we had just revealed), and he quickly recoiled as if we were about to shout a spoiler to his film. Oh God, no! he said, laughing. If they re bad I wanna enjoy my night, and if they re good, it s a gift. A gift I will happily unwrap – tomorrow. Tarantino Asks Viewers Not to Spoil the Hollywood EndgameMonday, May 20: Everyone is worried about spoilers these days – even legendary director Quentin Tarantino. After a script for The Hateful Eight leaked before production began, forcing the director to make significant changes, Tarantino is taking no chances with his latest film. Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) 85%, the A-lister–stuffed 60s period feature starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie, premieres Tuesday and has been shrouded in mystery. Little is known of the plot, save that it will feature numerous late 60 s icons such as Bruce Lee, Steve McQueen, Sharon Tate, and her infamous murderer Charles Manson. Speaking to Rotten Tomatoes to promote his film The Mustang earlier in the year, costar Bruce Dern said, “All I can say is — this is me telling you — he’s a magician, because in this movie, he did something mad. It’s probably the most unique endeavor I’ve seen a director undertake and do. Without ruining the movie for you — I can’t tell you what that is, but the minute you get to see it, you will say, ‘Bruce Dern is absolutely right. ” Hoping to keep the movie s surprises under wraps as long as possible, Tarantino posted an open letter asking those that see it first to be mindful of spoilers, adding, The cast and crew have worked so hard to create something original, and I only ask that everyone avoids revealing anything that would prevent later audiences from experiencing the film in the same way. Rotten Tomatoes has secured a coveted ticket to the glamorous premiere, so check back here on Tuesday for the first reviews and a detailed recounting of the star-studded premiere and afterparty.Check out Everything We Know About Once Upon a Time In Hollywood
神魔大陆 坐骑 oundation makes it sound like the show might be a bit less literary. According to their press materials, the show chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire, which suggests this series will follow the spirit of the novels more than the letter.It s also doubtful, given the scope and the 10-episode order (so far), that Foundation will cover all three books. It may not even cover all of the first one, especially if they incorporate elements of Asimov s prequel novels, 1988 s Prelude to Foundation and 1993 s Forward the Foundation. But with the credentials of the people involved, we re hopeful that Goyer and Apple will be able to pull it off.Who Are the Creatives on Foundation?(Photo by Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images)Goyer serves as the series showrunner. (Original co-writer and co-show runner John Friedman left the production in April of 2019, though it s not known if this was planned or unplanned). And while Goyer is best known as a screenwriter — most notably for Christopher Nolan s Batman movies, the Blade films, and both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — he s no stranger to TV. He was the co-creator, a producer, and a writer for the SyFy channel s Superman prequel Krypton, the co-creator and a writer for the WB s short-lived comic book adaptation Constantine, and is currently helping to develop The Sandman, a show based on author and producer Neil Gaiman s iconic comic book series.Joining Goyer in the show s credits are co-executive producers and writers Leigh Dana Jackson (Helix, 24: Legacy) and Victoria Morrow (Weeds, Rectify), co-producer Adam Banks (Altered Carbon, Luke Cage), and the aforementioned Robyn Asimov, who will serve as an executive producer.As for the writers, while Goyer will pen an as-yet-unknown number of episodes, he, Jackson, and Morrow will be joined by Marcus Gardley, who was the executive story editor for 10 episodes of The Chi, and a writer of four; Sarah Nolen (The Americans); and Saladin Ahmed, who is best known for writing the comic books Ms. Marvel and Miles Morales: Spider-Man. Isaac Asimov will also share writing credit on all 10 episodes, which is a neat trick given that he passed away in 1992.Where things get even more interesting is in the director s chair. Here, Foundation will feature the talents of Alex Graves (Lost in Space, Altered Carbon), Jennifer Phang (The Boys, Resident Alien), and Rupert Sanders (Ghost in the Shell, Snow White and the Huntsman). But the most interesting person who ll be yelling CUT! for Foundation — and twice no less — is Roxann Dawson, who has directed episodes of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, House of Cards, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but is best known to fans of epic sci-fi space operas as B Elanna Torres from Star Trek: Voyager a show she directed twice before doing the same for 10 episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise.Who s in the Cast of Foundation?(Photo by Apple TV+)Like the crew, many of the cast members also have experience with epic space stories. For the role of Hari Seldon, Goyer and company cast two-time Emmy nominee Harris, who s well versed in the ways of space and TV thanks to his role as Anderson Dawes in multiple episodes of The Expanse. Harris recently starred in HBO s Emmy-winning limited series Chernobyl, for which he received his second Emmy nomination; played King George VI in multiple episodes of The Crown; and had roles in the shows The Terror, Carnival Row, Mad Men (his first Emmy nomination), and Fringe.Foundation also stars Lee Pace, who plays Emperor Brother Day, and will undoubtedly draw from his experience playing Ronan the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. Pace also has experience with epics, and royalty, having played the Elven king Thranduil in The Hobbit movies, as well as TV experience from playing Joe MacMillan in Halt and Catch Fire. He is also Emmy nominated for his role as Ned on ABC fantasy series Pushing Daisies.Some of the casting of Foundation will change things up from the book. While the character of Eto Demerzel is male in the novels, the role in the show will instead be played by a female, Finnish actor Laura Birn. Birn is best known for the 2014 movie A Walk Among the Tombstones; though she s also no stranger to serialized entertainment, having played Elena in all eight episodes of Netflix s The Innocents.Alfred Enoch has been cast in an as-yet-unidentified role. Like many of his costars, Enoch also has experience with epics, having played Dean Thomas in the Harry Potter movies, and experience with TV, as Wes Gibbins in How to Get Away with Murder. So he s probably playing a space wizard who s in law school or something.The cast of Foundation also includes Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk, who is the eldest member of the royal family. Mann previously played Whispers in the Netflix show Sense8, though horror fans know him better as Ug, the interstellar bounty hunter in all four Critters movies. Joining him in the royal family as Brother Dawn is Cassian Bilton, a British actor whose previous credits include a handful of short films, including the BAFTA-nominated Shoal.Bilton is not the only relatively unknown actor in the Foundation cast, though. Gaal Dornick, a mathematician who becomes Seldon s biographer, will be played by Lou Llobell (pictured), who also appears in the upcoming sci-fi movie Voyagers, while the role of Salvor Hardin, who is the first mayor of Terminus City, will be played by Leah Harvey, who was previously seen in the wrestling movie Fighting with My Family.When Does Foundation Premiere?(Photo by Apple TV+)Like every other show in production these days, production on Foundation experienced delays related to COVID-19, coming to a complete halt in March 2020 before resuming in October. The cast and crew then moved to Malta in January of 2021 to film for a month, then to two separate locations the Canary Islands. Currently, the series is scheduled to debut on Apple TV+ on September 24, 2021, which means you still have plenty of time to read the 220-page original novel — or heck, the entire 660-page trilogy — and forget most of the plot twists before the show comes to your viewing screen.
