You get the incredible output of Hamilton lyricist, composer, and star Lin-Manuel Miranda.The multiple Tony and Grammy winner, whose rap-musical phenomenon Hamilton lands on Disney+ this July – with a 100% Certified Fresh Tomatometer score, no less – has created some of the most stirring and memorable songs of the last decade, both on stage and screen. Beyond Hamilton itself, and his debut musical In the Heights before that, Miranda composed the soaring earworm “How Far I’ll Go” for Moana, a tune for the cantina scene in J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens (lyrics in Huttese), and more. You can witness the evolution of his style in the new 100% Fresh documentary We Are Freestyle Love Supreme. With the whole world about to settle into a front-row seat to Hamilton, Rotten Tomatoes sat down with Miranda for an extended, in-depth dissection of the influences on his music and breakdowns of the complex construction of some of the best songs he’s produced. Want to know what boy band 98 Degrees has to do with In The Heights showstopper “96,000”? Or how he constructed “un-f—kwithable,” super-dense couplets for “My Shot”? Or why he had to stay a night in his childhood bedroom to find the right feel for How Far I ll Go ?Miranda goes deep in our exclusive extended interview.Hamilton is available to stream on Disney+ now.

HER NOLAN, AND THE WITCHES REMAKE(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/Paramount Pictures)For obvious calendar-related reasons, January is often a time when we see a lot of big future release dates. Although we know nothing else about it, the biggest reveal of this batch is the next film from director Christopher Nolan: IMAX on July 17, 2020, up against the Bob s Burgers movie and The Spongebob Movie: It s a Wonderful Sponge. A week earlier, on July 10, 2020, we ll get Ghostbusters 3, the direct sequel to the first two films, rumored to feature new teenage Ghostbusters. Later that month, on July 31, 2020, Sony has scheduled the Marvel s Morbius, the vampire antihero movie starring Jared Leto and Doctor Who star Matt Smith. Earlier in that year, May 8 will be the new release date for Greyhound, a World War II naval drama starring Tom Hanks, a date also claimed by Reese Witherspoon s Legally Blonde 3. January 3, 2020 will be the new release date for the reboot of The Grudge (which had previously been scheduled for this summer). Later in 2020, we ll also have the remake of The Witches (10/16/2020), starring Anne Hathaway in the role originally played by Anjelica Huston. 4. ZENDAYA AND OSCAR ISAAC ARE THE LATEST STARS JOINING THE DUNE REBOOT(Photo by Lev Radin/Everett Collection)Frank Herbert s classic science fiction novel Dune features a massive ensemble cast of characters, and so we re in the midst of what will be several weeks of role announcements. To date, we ve already heard about Timothée Chalamet in the lead role as Paul Atreides, as well as Rebecca Ferguson (as Lady Jessica), Charlotte Rampling (as Reverend Mother Mohiam), Stellan Skarsgård (as Baron Harkonnen), and Dave Bautista (as The Beast Rabban). This week, we can now add to the mix Spider-Man: Homecoming costar Zendaya, who is in early talks to play Chalamet s romantic interest, Chani. Oscar Isaac, who is coming off playing Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Force Awaken, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and this December s Star Wars Episode IX, is in talks to play Duke Leto Atreides.  5. THREE RECENT ACADEMY AWARD WINNERS JOIN THE HEART (Photo by Fox Searchlight courtesy Everett Collection)In addition to playing Dean Pelton on Community, Jim Rash is also a writer and director who with his partner Nat Faxon has previously worked on The Descendants and The Way Way Back. For their next film, The Heart, Rash and Faxon are arguably stacking the deck by recruiting three recent Academy Award winners: Allison Janney, who won a Supporting Actress Oscar last year for I, Tonya; Octavia Spencer, who won in that category for 2012 s The Help; and Sam Rockwell also won last year for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Rockwell and Spencer will play people desperate for cash who agree to courier a black market human heart in what they soon discover is a very dangerous job. Janney plays Spencer s antagonist ex-boss. In related news, there are also now rumors that Janney and Rockwell may not be asked to present Academy Awards this year, as is often the tradition in the acting categories.6. THIS WEEK IN ZOMBIELAND: ROSARIO DAWSON JOINS SEQUEL, WOODY GOES FRUIT LOOPS (Photo by Glen Wilson/Columbia courtesy Everett Collection)Everything was awesome for Sony Pictures in 2018, and the studio is keeping this swinging with the Zombieland: Double Tap (10/11/2019) poster reveal, presented as a play on the social media 10 year challenge. That poster also showed off that all four Zombieland stars (Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Abigail Breslin) are returning. We also learned this week that they will be joined by Rosario Dawson. Harrelson also made a new deal recently to star in the Fox 2000 drama Fruit Loops, which is described as a psychiatric hospital drama in the style of One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest. Fruit Loops will be directed by Ted Melfi (Hidden Figures, St. Vincent), who also this week set up a new sci-fi project called Harry s All Night Hamburgers. 7. THE INVISIBLE MAN REBOOT IS HAPPENING AFTER ALL, BUT JOHNNY DEPP S DISAPPEAREDIn the months and weeks leading up to the 2017 release of The Mummy, Universal Pictures did a lot of press about how that reboot was going to lead to the Dark Universe cinematic universe, featuring classic Universal Monsters like Bride of Frankenstein and The Wolfman. The box office disappointment of The Mummy quickly led to the Dark Universe plans being dismantled, but we learned this week that some Universal Monsters will still get their reboot movies after all. In the Dark Universe plan, Johnny Depp was to have played The Invisible Man, but that movie is now moving forward without Depp. Instead, The Invisible Man is now being rebooted by Upgrade director Leigh Whannell at Blumhouse. The shift to Blumhouse for The Invisible Man (and possibly other Universal Monsters) is being perceived as a smart move, considering how Blumhouse has been able to deliver successful franchises like Insidious, Ouija, Paranormal Activity, and The Purge. 8. CAPTAIN MARVEL STAR BRIE LARSON STARTING A LADY BUSINESS AT NETFLIX(Photo by Claire Folger/Paramount Pictures)Just as Captain Marvel prepares to release March 8, Brie Larson is setting up at least one new project at Netflix, which is also where her directorial debut called Unicorn Store (debuting April 5) landed. Larson will star in and direct Lady Business, based upon the true stories of Witchsy founders Kate Dwyer and Penelope Gazin. Lady Business will tell the story of two female entrepreneurs who invent a third male company founder in order to be taken seriously in the business world.  Rotten Idea1. PIKA-TWO: POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU ALREADY GETTING SEQUEL?(Photo by Warner Bros.)The videogame adaptation Pokémon Detective Pikachu (5/10/2019) is still over three months away, so we have no idea if it s going to be the big movie that breaks the Rotten curse of video game movies. After 25 years and nearly 50 Rotten video game movies, it s probably safe to be skeptical about all upcoming releases. This week, Warner Bros. revealed that they re already starting development on a Detective Pikachu sequel. The studio is doing that by hiring screenwriter Oren Uziel (The Cloverfield Paradox, co-writer of 22 Jump Street) to work on it. Other upcoming films Uziel has worked on include Sonic the Hedgehog (11/8/2019), Supergirl, and the Mortal Kombat reboot. 其实玩家们都知道这两款游戏是怎么回事,王者也一度被认为是英雄联盟手游,KPL比赛也有很多观众,而现在LOL出了属于他们的手游,但还是失去了属于他们的市场,亡羊补牢,为时晚矣。并且受防沉迷政策影响,上线时间一直处于不确定状态,所以这款手游就目前而言,是非常失败的。

1.21.3 9月喜迎This Week s Ketchup brings you seven headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Community, Hellraiser, and Stephen King s Salem s Lot. This WEEK S TOP STORYJOEL MCHALE SAYS THE COMMUNITY MOVIE MAY STILL HAPPEN(Photo by Mitchell Haaseth/©NBC courtesy Everett Collection)The hashtag #SixSeasonsandaMovie is now frequently used by fans of lots of different TV shows who hope for success for a given show, but it actually had its origins with NBC s Community. That ensemble sitcom was cancelled after just five seasons before it eventually got its sixth season through the short-lived Yahoo! Screen streaming service, but there s never been much movement about a movie. Things are looking up, however, for the future of Community. In addition to recently being added to Netflix, many Community creatives have gone on to great things (Dan Harmon and Rick and Morty, and Joe and Anthony Russo have directed some of Marvel s biggest movies). Joel McHale (who, earlier this week, was the host of the Tiger King reunion special) was asked about the possibility of a Community movie, and his response was, There’s way more rumblings than there used to be. Alison [Brie] tweeted that she got a phone call from Sony. They still haven’t called me; maybe Matthew Lillard will take over. But I would say there’s a better chance than there’s ever been. It s not yet known if the Community movie has been written yet, or who might direct, or who indeed from the cast would return for it.Other Top Headlines1. STEPHEN KING S VAMPIRE EPIC SALEM S LOT RESURRECTED AS MOVIE (Photo by ©Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)Dozens and dozens of Stephen King novels and stories have been adapted as movies, especially from the first 20 years or so of his career. Yet, while this period is very well represented on film, two of his biggest novels from that time were only ever adapted as TV mini-series, not as movies. The Stand is currently in the works as a new mini-series for CBS All Access, and we can now confirm that Salem s Lot is also in the works as a movie. Salem s Lot (short for Jerusalem s Lot, hence the apostrophe) was a vampire novel in 1975 that became a two-part CBS mini-series in 1979 starring David Soul and directed by Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist). New Line Cinema has hired screenwriter Gary Dauberman to direct their adaptation of Salem s Lot from his own screenplay. Dauberman made his directorial debut last year with Annabelle Comes Home (Fresh at 65%), and as a screenwriter, he worked on films like Annabelle, The Nun, and both IT and IT: Chapter Two. Presumably, the next step we will hear about will be the casting of the human male lead and the Austrian vampire leader Barlow.2. FIRST IMAGES FROM DENIS VILLENEUVE S DUNE SURFACE ONLINE(Photo by Chiabella James/Warner Bros. Entertainment)With the movies originally scheduled for April, May, June, and most of July now being pushed back because of COVID-19, the marketing strategies for the movies scheduled for later in 2020 are also facing new challenges. Many of these movies will probably end up being pushed back to 2021, but one film that appears to be standing its ground is Warner Bros. new adaptation of (the first half of) Frank Herbert s classic science fiction novel Dune. First adapted to film by David Lynch in 1984, Dune is a sweeping epic with dozens of characters, which lends itself well to having a huge star-driven ensemble cast, and that s what the new Dune (12/18/2020) from director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario, Blade Runner 2049) promises. Vanity Fair got the scoop on the first cast images, which include our first glimpses in character (in order) of Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Oscar Isaac, and Jason Momoa, among others.3. JENNIFER LOPEZ TO STAR IN ANOTHER TRUE CRIME STORY AS THE GODMOTHER (Photo by JA/Everett Collectio)Sometimes movie stars who do biopics bear a striking resemblance to the real life personalities they portray, and sometimes they don t. Let s start this story with this mugshot of Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco Restrepo from 1997 when she was 54, so you can quickly see where we re going with this, because Jennifer Lopez is now attached to star in The Godmother, the biopic about the life of Griselda Blanco. The film is being produced by STXfilms, the same company behind Lopez recent hit, Hustlers (also based upon a true crime story), and it will be directed by Reed Morano (I Think We re Alone Now, The Rhythm Section, TV s The Handmaid s Tale) from a screenplay by William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom of Heaven).4. LEONARDO DICAPRIO OFFERING WALK-ON ROLE IN MARTIN SCORSESE S NEXT FOR CHARITY (Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures) Martin Scorsese s next film as director, the serial killer true story Killers of the Flower Moon, is currently experiencing some issues with its budget, which is rumored to be in the 0 million range. Paramount is possibly getting nervous, and both Apple and Netflix are being seen as streaming options. While all that continues to get figured out, the film s stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro are now partnering with an organization called the All-In Challenge to raise money for charities like Feeding America, Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, and World Central Kitchen. Donors will be entered for a chance at both a walk-on role in Killers of the Flower Moon, as well as a trip to the film s eventual world premiere.5. JAMES GUNN CLAIMS NO DELAYS FOR THE SUICIDE SQUAD AND GOTG 3 (Photo by Jay Maidment/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)The current COVID-19 pandemic is causing so many films to be delayed and events to be cancelled that there is a strong argument to be made that the only real news these days is when something is not delayed or cancelled. That s exactly why we re drawing your attention this week to this update from director James Gunn, who said that there is no reason for his next two films to be delayed in any way. Those films are, of course, The Suicide Squad (8/16/2021) and his return to Marvel with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Of course, there is some irony in Gunn saying that the release date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 won t be delayed since there isn t currently a release date for the film in the first place.
(Photo by Jonny Cournoyer/©Paramount Pictures)Leading into Memorial Day, many were saying that million for A Quiet Place Part II this weekend would have been a nice pandemic number for sure; but even that would not be nearly what the industry really needed after the health-induced drought theaters had seen since March 2020. However, after the box office made over million this weekend (the best since the .4 million from March 6-8, 2020), with the horror sequel accounting for an estimated million of that (plus another -plus million on Monday), we got our dream Movies Are Back! headlines. Though let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet King of the Crop: A Quiet Place Part II s Epic Weekend Suggests The Corner May Be TurnedJohn Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II was the first film to delay itself when the COVID-19 scare began last March. It was a sequel to a film that made over 8 million after opening to .2 million in April 2018: that’s 3.74 times its opening, which is the best multiple for a film opening in April to more than million. For comparison, Godzilla vs. Kong was the follow-up to Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which was anything but a word-of-success after opening to .77 million in May 2019 and only cleared 2.31 times that start. GvK still managed to be the first truly breakout film of the pandemic era, grossing .1 million from Wednesday to Easter Sunday, or March 31 to April 4. That was when the vaccination rate across North America was around 28%-29%; by Memorial Day weekend, we are at double that (with folks who have received at least the first dose), theaters are opening wider, and A Quiet Place Part II is not available on any streaming service and is exclusive to theaters. (GvK was available on HBO Max upon its release). All of this shows why a million holiday weekend opening would not have been too much cause for celebration.Thankfully, as already mentioned, we have very good news to report: million and counting. That may not be record-breaking Memorial Day number (it s the 21st-best Memorial Day opening overall), but this is completely a glass half-full kind of weekend. People are showing up in theaters still socially distancing. We are not at maximum capacity just yet, but it feels like we have turned a corner. In four days, A Quiet Place Part II has grossed more than all but three films during the pandemic (GvK, Tenet, The Croods: A New Age) and it will be passing those latter two by Tuesday. The budget for the film is about three times the original ( million), and with it not being available on streaming at the same time as its theatrical release – and therefore its total numbers not being obscured, as they are for some streaming releases – this is in many ways the first film in a long time that we can declare an honest-to-goodness hit.The Top 10 And Beyond: Cruella Opens Strong, But It s Complicated

The long wait for more of Netflix s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is over, as new episodes arrive on Friday.When we left off, 16-year-old half-witch, half-mortal Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) had finally signed her name in the Book of the Beast, in turn devoting herself to the Dark Lord and the Church of Night in an attempt to disrupt the Church s operations and prevent her hometown of Greendale from being overrun by the underworld.Of course, Sabrina’s plan — or lack thereof — represents only one aspect of the new episodes, as Rotten Tomatoes learned from the cast when we visited the set back in November. Here are five highlights coming in Part 2.1. Sabrina Strikes a Balance Between Two Worlds(Photo by Netflix)Despite signing her name in the Book of the Beast, Sabrina will try to maintain a balance between her old (human) and new (witch) lives. And though those worlds are still very far apart, Shipka said, “they just feel an inch closer, which, I think, just sort of adds a bit of tension and a bit of excitement to the whole thing.”She added that it still represents “a massive shift” in the dynamic between Sabrina and her best friends Roz (Jaz Sinclair) and Susie (Lachlan Watson), who will also face new challenges in the upcoming episodes. And while Sabrina wants to strike a true balance between her devotion to her friends and the Academy of Unseen Arts, the teen could potentially never find it.“I think her life is going to be ever-changing,” Shipka explained. “Maybe she ll find a spot that feels like it s right, but there is a very long haul to go before Sabrina finds any stability.”Of course, rocking that stability will be the continued charade orchestrated by Madame Satan (Michelle Gomez) in the guise of Ms. Wardwell. As Shipka put it, their relationships will change as Sabrina feels more understood by Ms. Wardwell than anyone else in the mortal or witch worlds. But because of this, Madame Satan can steer Sabrina toward choices “in a way that Sabrina doesn t even know is happening.”“Clearly, that s one of the few relationships in the show that Sabrina is a bit oblivious to,  Shipka added. [But] as both of their agendas become increasingly different, it results in some shenanigans of sorts.”2. Relationships Will Change(Photo by Netflix)Shenanigans of an entirely different sort will occur as hormones are added into the mix. For one thing, the sexuality on display at the Academy of Unseen Arts is something Sabrina still needs to adjust to.“Sabrina sometimes feels like a fish out of water,” Shipka said. “There s definitely a storyline about that.”Meanwhile, she will continue to have conflicted feelings about breaking things off with her mortal boyfriend Harvey (Ross Lynch).“To a certain extent there s that love that s always going to be there,” Shipka said. “I do think that she is a little broken. But I think that Sabrina s a fixer. She likes to fix things.”And as trailers and photos from the show s second batch of episodes suggest, that fixing may involve one Nick Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood). Nick and Sabrina will grow closer throughout Part 2.“I think they really complement each other well, what with Sabrina taking on this darker edge and her witchy side. Nick s really privy to that world and is a good partner, as far as all that goes,” Leatherwood said, adding that the obvious affinity Nick has for Sabrina will continue to be explored throughout the season. “He s just starting to kind of dive into and explore what love is, he added. While witches and warlocks are more prone to lust and passion, Nick’s curiosity about the mortal form of love could also lead him to become “a dark, jealous lover.”Harvey won t be pining for Sabrina all season long, as trailers for the season have revealed that the character might embark on a new romance with Roz. But there s no betrayal there — Lynch said it s a pretty organic development now that Sabrina is out of the picture.“I think they ve realized that they ve always been really good friends, and they ve always had a good connection,” he said. “They quite like each other and they bond over being mortals and being outside of the magic world.”Sinclair said the possibility of a relationship between the characters was something of a “surprise” to read in the scripts, but “it almost feels like a little bit of an older version of Roz and Harvey come together because their relationship dynamic is just so different than Sabrina and Harvey.”At the same time, the actress was concerned how it would change things between Roz and Sabrina. “One of the things that was really important to me was that I did put my friendship first in the script,” she said — which means you should expect a conversation between the two about Harvey sooner rather than later. 3. Embracing Susie s Non-Binary Truth(Photo by Netflix)While the gender-fluid nature of Susie Putnam was always present within Part 1, the story only had a few chances to focus on that aspect of the character. This will change in Part 2 as Susie continues to learn from the ghost of Dorothea Putnam (Anastasia Bandey) and further embrace the character s truth.“I think right now Susie s on a bit of a solo crusade in a way,” Watson said, referring to the character with the gender-neutral pronoun they. “I think they’re still finding who they are as an individual, and I think it s very jarring to see this one queer kid in this sea of people at Baxter High.”Added the actor, who identifies as non-binary, hopefully we ll branch out a little bit past that.  Watson also expressed a hope that Susie will find a “less ghostly” life influence — maybe even a non-binary person living their truth to see how that affects Susie and to see that positive relationship. I think that is so important to show people nowadays that a support group is everything. It s just such an incredible feeling, and it s something that I, as a kid, wanted to see reflected back at me and never could. To have that opportunity to show that to the world has been amazing.”Beyond learning about presenting an authentic self, Susie will also learn more about the Putnams’ past in Greendale and the family s historic relationship to the Spellmans.4. Hilda Continues Her Trek Into the Mortal World While Ambrose Gets a Reprieve(Photo by Netflix)Though she’s spent decades as a helper, Hilda Spellman (Lucy Davis) continues her journey into the mortal world thanks to her job at the bookstore and a tentative relationship with its not-entirely-mortal proprietor, Dr. Cee (Alessandro Juliani). There will be what Davis described as “an issue” between two characters, but “it turns nice.” Also, the kindly Spellman sister will continue to come out of Zelda’s (Miranda Otto) shadow.“I ve just done an episode where it surprised me — an action that Hilda took in order to help Zelda,” she teased. “I was kind of pleased with it, and then I was like, ‘Oh, that s big though, isn t it?’ Nonetheless, Davis is convinced the core of the character remains unchanged.“She s a helper, she said. But she s also having her own life and doing some things that in the past Zelda would ve said no to and she would ve probably just obeyed. Meanwhile, Ambrose (Chance Perdomo) continues to stretch his legs a bit as the reprieve from his house arrest continues to widen — all thanks to Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle).“It very much is a new world for him. The only experience he has of the world for the last 75 years has been lived vicariously through funerals, probably the internet, maybe a bit of Netflix, and his aunties,” he explained. “So he s quite concerned and hesitant to jump right into the ranks of Blackwood s society. But he s very much drawn to power, as episode eight says, ‘drawn to powerful father figures.’ So he can t resist it and help himself, but he s still got his eye out.”Ambrose’s need for strong father figures no doubt played a role in the Vatican job that lead to his house arrest in the first place, and Perdomo teased that those events will “haunt him to the point where he must do something about it. Ambrose s past is a cauldron, [and] it s beginning to bubble.”5. Zelda s New Role(Photo by Netflix)While the cast remained mainly tight-lipped about developments in the season that weren t included in the trailer, just about everyone was excited to talk about Zelda’s upcoming change in status within the Church of Night. Though it s too much of a spoiler to reveal specifics, the cast did offer a few reactions to the plot point.“[Sabrina] has a lot of thoughts,” Shipka teased. “Surprise, surprise, she doesn t keep her mouth shut [about it], either.”Davis said the development was both “devastating and brilliant at the same time.”Added Perdomo, “It just gets darker and creepier.”As Otto explained, Zelda s journey in season 2 is very much about attaining power. [She’s] trying to realize some of her ambitions. She s attracted to power like a moth to a flame, really.”And while it is a very personal tale for Zelda, Otto said it mirrors some of Sabrina’s journey in Part 2 as Sabrina discovers her witch side and what her own power entails — which also means there will be some sacrifices for both. According to Otto, Zelda maintains a faith that it will be worth it to attain her goal.“At times I think Zelda s like a politician in that way, she said. She s sort of playing a long game of where she wants to get the family to. Of course, one thing which could threaten her long-game plans is her decision to steal one of the Blackwood infants at the end of Part 1. Though the child was sent off to be raised by secluded witch Dezmelda (Brenda McDonald) at the conclusion of the Sabrina holiday special, the truth could still bubble up to the surface.“That s a dirty secret and it does plague Zelda,” Otto teased.Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 hits Netflix on Friday, April 5.
In retrospect, it s easy to see why Unbreakable was not the box office hit that many were expecting from M. Night Shyamalan in the year 2000. The director had the impossible task of following The Sixth Sense, the second biggest movie of 1999 (behind only The Phantom Menace); he was making a comic-book movie at a time when the genre was out of favor (thanks largely to the silliness of the late- 90s Batman movies); and the studio had marketed it, misleadingly, as a Sense-style thriller. And yet, it s also easy to see why Unbreakable would go on to find a devoted audience on DVD and eventually streaming, and why it would start to pop up in Best Superhero Movies lists in the late 2000s: It s really, really good – and well ahead of its time. The dark, grounded, and refreshing take on the superhero genre also benefited from some incredible performances from Bruce Willis (as train crash survivor and reluctant hero David Dunn) and Samuel L. Jackson (as Elijah Price, a.k.a. Mr. Glass, whose friendly fascination with Dunn belies more villainous intentions). In this oral history of Unbreakable, Jackson tells Rotten Tomatoes about his first impressions of Night ( a little dictatorial ) and the appeal of his fragile villain Elijah, while Shyamalan reveals the origins of his tale and its journey from risky studio proposition to cult favorite.What follows is a history of Unbreakable (2000), and reflection upon it, drawn from sit-down interviews with M. Night Shyamalan and Samuel L. Jackson. ALSO WATCH: An Oral History of Split | An Oral History of Glass“I think you might be a real-life superhero.”M. Night Shyamalan: When I was editing Sixth Sense, I was writing Unbreakable, and the idea originally was a plane crashed and the guy survives and then someone says, “I think you might be a real-life superhero.” But then I put it into a train ’cause I love trains and I felt it was more comic book-y for me. It felt more reasonable that he would survive [a train accident] without a scratch, and so [it] could be dismissed as luck. But then Elijah s character comes to him and says, No, I think you might be a superhero. This idea of a regular person who doesn t have anything to do with superheroes in a world in which that doesn t exist is told: Hey, you know these fake things in comic books? I think they re actually based on people like you.(Photo by © Buena Vista)“He said, ‘Oh I just finished this movie with this kid, and he s writing a movie for us right now.’ Samuel L. Jackson: I was just finishing a job in Morocco and I had to go into Marrakesh. My wife was coming for few days, so we were gonna, I guess, take a holiday. I was in a casino, heard a voice – Bruce! – I turned around, we talked. He asked me what I was doing; I told him. I asked him where he d been, and he said, Oh I just finished this movie with this kid, and he s writing a movie for us right now. I was like, what movie was that, and he told me. I said, Oh, I read that movie. I wanted to be in it. He called Night on the phone, and Night says, Oh, I m writing one of your scenes right now. And we start talking, he tells me what the movie’s about. [I said] don t read it to me, I ll just read it when you send it.“It was really from Quentin that I grabbed that union of Sam and Bruce.”Shyamalan: One of my favorite movies is Pulp Fiction, and I really wanted that flavor that Sam and Bruce gave in Pulp Fiction for Unbreakable. Obviously, [it’s] a totally different story and all that stuff, but that kinda cool, edgy, grounded quality that they both had in that movie I thought [Willis’] quietness versus [Jackson’s] pizazz could be really fun. It was really from Quentin that I grabbed that union.(Photo by © Buena Vista)“His body s so fragile, but he had this great mane of hair like a lion – very strong.”Jackson: I love the character. I m a huge comic book fan. I like the fact that he had this great arc. [He’s] not a weak character at all; he s just fragile, physically fragile. It takes a certain kind of person to be able to accept that they have something like that, carry on and have a strong belief that, If I m this person, there must be some person out there that s opposite me that can justify the fact that God made somebody like me. He had these things that were wrong with him that made him stronger. That s what you want you want a character that definitely knows what he s about. I talked to the costume director about the color scheme; we had great talks about the color scheme and the kind of materials he wanted to use. I kind of brought the hairstyle idea to him and Night accepted it, and then okay, let s build it and see what happens and to give Elijah things that were very distinct. It has a level of strength to it that his body didn t have. His body s so fragile, but he had this great mane of hair like a lion, very strong.Shyamalan: Sam brought that Frederick Douglas look to the table. The hair kinda parted and [created a] big silhouette that I love so much. He definitely brought the pizazz, which is what you expect from Sam.“Those guys were icons and I was being very aggressive about the way we were making the movie.”Shyamalan: I think I was 29 when I was doing Unbreakable. Or maybe even 28 when I wrote it. I was still in the early stages of my career, and those guys were icons… And I was being very aggressive about the way we were making the movie. Long takes. Three-minute takes, two-minute takes, four-minute takes – really aggressive filmmaking. And they just had to trust me. There s no close-ups. There s no this, there s no that. And it s very play-like.(Photo by © Buena Vista)“We were kind of like his puppets in an interesting way.”Jackson: First impression [of Shyamalan]: young, strong ego, a little dictatorial when we first started working together. He had certain ways he wanted us to do things, and he would tell us to do them. I came up through the theater, and theater is essentially a dictatorship – the director tells you to do something, you do it, or they ask you a question, you have to have the right answer to justify what you re doing. Night went further than that. It was like, I already know what you re going to do, and I want you to do it this way. We were kind of like his puppets in an interesting kind of way. There were specific times he would say, “Okay, try not to blink. Just do the whole thing without blinking.” Or he would say, “Don t say the line that way, say it this way,” and I m one of those actors that hates being given line readings. But he was very adamant about it. Bruce and I have been around together for quite a bit, so… it was kind of easy for us to kind of listen to Night and look at each other and go, Yeah, wait till this kid finds out. “We re never gonna mention comic books, superheroes – any of that.”Shyamalan: I think for the studio at that time… it was seen as a fringe element of the movie – that this is about comic books. “Oh, those are those weirdos that hang out at those conventions.” Back then, there was just Comic-Con, and it was very niche at that time. People weren t aware of it. It was more cult-like. So, they said, Let s not make this a cult subject movie; let’s sell it more as a general thriller. We re never gonna mention comic books, superheroes – any of that. That meant you couldn t even [promote] the main plot of the movie because that s the plot of the movie: Hey, I think you re a real-life superhero. That couldn t be said in the ads. It was a really weird and ironic time that the thing that dominates the film industry now was the one thing they were running from. They thought that was the least commercial element of the film. Obviously, times have changed a great deal.(Photo by © Buena Vista)“Immediately as the DVD came out you started to feel the change.”Shyamalan: When the movie opened I think there was a disconnect because [audiences] were thinking it was kind of a sequel to Sixth Sense – it was me and Bruce and we sold it like that. So, there was confusion. People were coming to see a scary movie and that s not what they saw, you know? But immediately as the DVD came out, you started to feel the change in their perception of the movie. And… Oh, wait, this is about comic books? And then again, six months later, six months later, six months later… it just kept growing and growing until I would cross the street and, if you and I were hanging out, invariably someone would come up to us and say: “Unbreakable! I love it, man. When are you making the sequel?ALSO WATCH: An Oral History of Split | An Oral History of Glass

亚博APP下载苹果版 Irish actor Andrew Scott is arguably most recognizable to U.S. audiences for malevolent characters: classic literary villain Professor Moriarty opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in TV s Sherlock, as cruel psychiatrist Dr. Addison Bennet in Alice Through the Looking Glass, and as duplicitous government agent C in James Bond film Spectre.So seeing Scott turn up as a priest in Amazon series Fleabag understandably may result in immediate suspicion of the character. The series history of revealing unexpected core character flaws might also set viewers expectation levels to yellow ― exercise caution ― when it comes to investing in this new player on Fleabag s scene. Plus: Fleabag. It s original and audacious storytelling, Scott says of the series created and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, a star rapidly ascending with a scene-stealing turn as the voice of robot L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story and as executive producer and creator of award-winning BBC America series Killing Eve. Waller-Bridge was also tapped by Bond himself, Daniel Craig, to inject her distinctive comedic voice into the script of the upcoming film from director Cary Fukunaga.Scott this week also appeared — ranting with a gun — in the first trailer for season 5 of Netflix sci-fi anthology hit Black Mirror. We re eager to find out what delirium awaits us there, but in the meantime, we re savoring his performance in Fleabag season 2, which is reliably unexpected.The season is Certified Fresh at 100% with 43 reviews at publication and is being lauded by critics with lines like:  A portrait of grief, fear, and love that s startling, painful, achingly funny, unbearably sexy, pretty much perfect, and somehow better than the first season. It is a marvel. It should not exist. (Allison Shoemaker, RogerEbert.com).We spoke to Scott about these strange, beautiful, tragic, hilarious sketches of humanity and what it was like to inhabit one of them.(Photo by Steve Schofield/Amazon Prime)Debbie Day for Rotten Tomatoes: Throughout the season, as a viewer, I think you keep asking yourself, “Is this love or is this insanity?”Scott: I think both those things can exist at the same time. (Laughs). I think a lot of the time, people s experiences of love are exactly that. I think that question, “Is this love or is this insanity?,” can nearly be applied to everything or relationship, because it is insane to go through that experience — it s insane. That s exactly it. As the Priest says in that sermon (in the series): It s this extraordinary thing, it makes you crazy, and makes you do all these things that you never imagined you would be, both good and bad. I think Phoebe s great talent is to be able to hold two things in exactly the same thing. I love the fact that it s funny and tragic at the same time. I like that the idea of being vulnerable and being powerful exists in the same scene. It s all the things it s very fluid, and I think that s why people have responded to it so much, that s what makes such great television, is that feeling of nuance, because the lack of nuance is the death of great art.(Photo by Steve Schofield/Amazon Prime)After season 1, I think viewers are hoping for some redemption for Fleabag, and at the beginning of the new season, here s this priest and ― whether you believe or not ― you may hope that she finds something to hold on to, but she chooses the same sort of destructive path.Scott: You think it s destructive?I think she makes another bad choice for herself. You want to believe in love, and you want to believe that people will choose love, but when you get involved with someone who s not really available ―Scott: Yeah.(Photo by Steve Schofield/Amazon Prime)How did you approach your character, seeing this dynamic in the scripts? What did you think of him at first when you read it?Scott: We talked about, when we first spoke about this relationship between the two of them, was how do you play love, and what should we expect from our television characters? And there s not one of us who have not made bad choices ― I e

《一人之下》动画大火之后,自然而然就走上了漫改手游的道路,而在国内获得这个知名国漫IP的就是财大气粗的腾讯。在去年,腾讯《一人之下》手游上线之前也是引起高度期待,不过上线之后很多玩家发现游戏设计太单调,缺乏互动性和玩家协作性,导致手游玩家数量在公测两周后大幅度减少,如今基本已经没有了姓名。 The Umbrella Academy season 1 bewitched Netflix viewers with its story about the Hargreeves family of uniquely powered kids. In the series, based on the comic book series created and written by ‎Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá, billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves adopts seven of 43 babies born on the same day to random women, who had shown no signs of pregnancy the day before. Sir Reginald creates The Umbrella Academy to train his children to one day save the world. In season 1, they failed, instead becoming responsible for the 2019 apocalypse.Season 2 picks up in the 1960s, where Five (Aidan Gallagher) has time-traveled his siblings, scattering them across several years in and around Dallas, Texas. Some have cultivated lives by the time Five lands — just in time for a nuclear doomsday caused by their timeline meddling.(Photo by Netflix © 2020)In addition to Gallagher, The Umbrella Academy season 2 stars Ellen Page as Vanya, Tom Hopper as Luther, David Castañeda as Diego, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison, Robert Sheehan as Klaus, Justin H. Min as Ben. Colm Feore returns as Sir Reginald Hargreeves, Cameron Britton as Hazel, Jordan Claire Robbins as Mom Grace, and Adam Godley voicing Pogo. The new season welcomes Ritu Arya as Lila Pitts, Marin Ireland as Sissy, Yusuf Gatewood as Raymond Chestnut, and Kris Holden-Ried, Jason Bryden, and Tom Sinclair as a trio of killers hunting the seven through time.Season 1 is Certified Fresh at 75% on the Tomatometer, and season 2 has surpassed that score by a wide margin based on early reviews. Here’s what critics are saying about season 2 of The Umbrella Academy:Is The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Better Than Season 1?(Photo by Christos Kalohoridis/Netflix © 2020 )More banana pants crazy than the first season with plot twists you won t see coming and the perfect amount of gore. Another must binge wild ride for the Hargreeves! — Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyEven with an overarching plot that resembles a lot of season one, this do-over the siblings get is entirely worth it. — Katey Stoetzel, The Young FolksEmploying dry Wes Anderson-style humour and end-of-the-world exploits worthy of Heroes, the second season of The Umbrella Academy is just as — if not more — wacky than the first. — Sabrina Barr, Independent (UK)While Season 1 worked to establish the world in which they lived as well as their relationships to each other within their unique family structure, Season 2 allows each character to grow into themselves fully. — Carissa Pavlica, TV FanaticThe Umbrella Academy’s second chapter ends up being perfectly good and just shy of great, which is saying something, because the show overall does feel like it has a stronger sense of what it s trying to be. — Charles Pulliam-Moore,io9.comFlamboyant, entertaining and enriched by a remarkable cast, season 2 of The Umbrella Academy tweaks everything it needed to to belt a tune that resonates with its light and dark elements. — Jennifer Bisset, CNETSeason two realises the true potential of these characters without failing them in the same way, digging deeper into their collective trauma while improving on everything that made season one so special. — David Opie, Digital SpyRetaining all the charm of its predecessor, The Umbrella Academy s energetic, creative second season extends the mythology in ambitious and unexpected new ways. — Shaun Munro, Flickering MythThe Umbrella Academy was annoyingly watchable in season one The best thing that can be said about season two, then, is that it is that same show but good. — Sam Barsanti, AV ClubWhat s The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Like?(Photo by Netflix © 2020)A fantastic mix of X-Men meets Back to the Future, Season 2 is an incredible ride. — Grace Randolph, Beyond the TrailerSeason two takes all of what you love so much from season one and brings it all a major step forward through more refined storytelling and situation and time period that tests these characters in new ways. — Perri Nemiroff, Perri NemiroffThe Umbrella Academy is what you get when you mix Wes Anderson with Matthew Vaughn, stuff them full of Red Bull and Adderall, and give them a Spotify Premium subscription. Yes, that s a compliment. — Brandon Katz,Observer (UK)Maintaining the show s distinctive, offbeat style think the Coens doing superheroes and sharp-edged sense of humour, not an episode passes without a great gag, impressive visual beat or fantastic music-driven sequence. — Dan Jolin, Empire MagazineSo How s the Family Unit? (Photo by Netflix © 2020)Blackman really leaned into the superhero element when telling this story. The show is at its best when the family is together or when they are paired off together and thankfully that happens throughout most of the season. — Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorThere s precious little that s really original in the second season of The Umbrella Academy, but the familiarity works well for a show about family. — Samantha Nelson, PolygonNow that the characters are firmly established and removed from the shadow of the time and place of their upbringing, [It] feels looser and funnier, with heroic moments that are often bigger and more exciting. — Cynthia Vinney, CBRPerhaps it s because the new time period, new enemies, and new revelations which await these characters are way more fun for an actor to sink their teeth into. — Allie Gemmill, ColliderThe Umbrella Academy’s second season expands on its idea in fun ways while giving us more of what we love about its titular team. — Spencer Perry, ComicBook.comDo Any of the Characters Stand Out in Season 2?(Photo by Christos Kalohoridis/Netflix © 2020 )Sheehan and Gallagher are still the standouts, but Ritu Arya is a fantastic new addition. — Grace Randolph, Beyond the Trailer[Ellen Page] has crafted this delicate and vulnerable side to Vanya that we have rarely seen, but it s addictive to watch and yes, we need to see more of it in season three. — Abigail Gillibrand, Metro (UK)Verdict? (Photo by Netflix © 2020)It s both exhilarating and heartbreaking, and ultimately it brought me joy. In a year when it feels like the world is ending in real-time, The Umbrella Academy gives me hope. — Michelle Swope, Nightmarish ConjuringsDespite some familiarity, The Umbrella Academy’s brand of charming fun can t be beaten. Fingers crossed that when it comes to season three, they don t stray too far from the winning formula. — Huw Fullerton, Radio TimesThe conflict is well-paced and resolves satisfyingly, and the story flows with a rhythm that pulls the viewer along like the inexorable course of time itself. — Michael Ahr, Den of GeekBrimming with confidence, season 2 elevates The Umbrella Academy into one of the best shows on television. — Ian Thomas Malone, FanSidedSmart, stylish and hugely entertaining, the second season once again pushes the boundaries of the superhero genre with the quirky and bold vision of Gerard Way. — Nicola Austin, We Have a Hulk



亚博APP下载苹果版 In the 1970s and 1980s, a horror renaissance rocked the film industry, riding on the wave of George Romero’s 1969 low-budget zombie breakout Night of the Living Dead. There was a general feeling that something special was happening, where even directors as esteemed as Stanley Kubrick, Nicolas Roeg, and Peter Medak were flocking to the genre, while others more dedicated to horror, like Tobe Hooper, John Carpenter, and Wes Craven were pushing the goal posts for scares. Even though the enthusiasm for innovative horror waned somewhat in the past couple of decades, with notable exceptions from the likes of Craven and newcomers like James Wan, the special feeling of a “movement” in horror seems to have finally returned, and with it a new class of the Masters of Horror who will lead us through the dark.Whittling this list to 21 was a near-impossible task when you’ve got so many visionary filmmakers working in the genre, including queen Karyn Kusama (The Invitation), the Soska sisters (Rabid), Julia Ducournau (Raw), Coralie Fargeat (Revenge), Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani (Amer), Chelsea Stardust (Satanic Panic), Ana Asensio (Most Beautiful Island), Nia DaCosta (the upcoming Candyman), Na Hong-jin (The Wailing), Ti West (The Innkeepers), Jorge Michel Grau (We Are What We Are), Jennifer Wexler (The Ranger), Joko Anwar (Satan’s Slaves), Mattie Do (Dearest Sister), Gigi Guerrero (Culture Shock), Xander Robin (Are We Not Cats), and Demian Rugna (Terrified). (That s not to mention producers like Jason Blum, dedicating their professional lives to scaring us stupid; but we re limiting this roll call to directors, though some of those produce, as you ll see. )The list goes on and on, but here’s 21 that have made our blood pump and eyes pop recently, and are pushing the genre forward with every new work they make.Ari Aster(Photo by James Minchin /© A24 /Courtesy Everett Collection)Ari Aster, much like George Romero, did not see himself as a horror director before his breakout debut. Hereditary, starring Toni Collette in an awards-worthy performance, is a family drama that plays out like one long exhilarating gasp for breath. Aster’s follow-up, Midsommar digs around in the same psychological playground, though this time covering the dissolution of a romantic relationship. Both films recategorize the meaning of “scare,” as Aster mines the terror of simply being uncomfortable with other people to a nearly wacky psycho-comedy effect.Jordan Peele(Photo by Claudette Barius / © Universal)What else is there to say about Jordan Peele? He single-handedly proved that black people want to see themselves in horror films and that other people all over the world would like to see it too. His films stray so far from what many would deem commercially acceptable — a lengthy monologue about inequality delivered amongst a bunch of rabbits in a kind of magical basement world? And yet his stories are compelling because they’re unlike anything else in theaters, their cinematic influences evident but not overbearing. Peele’s making horror weird again, and he’s making it matter.Jennifer Kent(Photo by ©IFC Midnight/Courtesy Everett Collection)When Jennifer Kent’s debut horror The Babadook shocked audiences, the potential for horror to mine desperate grief came into 20/20 view. Not only that, but distinctly down-and-dirty, terrible, feminine grief. It’s not unusual for horror films to star women — this has been a defining characteristic of the genre — but it was unusual to see a heroine slowly morph into a highly relatable villain in such a visceral manner. In her newest film The Nightingale, Kent continues to push her heroines past a point of likeability with an eye on doing away with the “strong woman” trope that has rendered so many female characters into caricatures of femininity.Mike Flanagan(Photo by Justin M. Lubin/© Universal Pictures /Courtesy Everett Collection)Mike Flanagan has toiled in the genre fields for almost two decades, writing, directing, and editing his own films, which included Ghosts of Hamilton Street, Absentia, Oculus, and Hush, before he got his name-making box office hit, Ouija: Origin of Evil. Flanagan has a rare ability to please mainstream audiences while still pushing boundaries of horror, as he did with the wildly popular Haunting of Hill House Netflix series, which, among other cool tricks, hid a number of ghosts in the frame. That kind of subtle innovation comes from a filmmaker who’s familiar with all tools at their disposal, and his adaptation of a sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep, is much anticipated for that reason.Issa LopezMexican director Issa Lopez made a name for herself in her native country by directing a series of comic films, but her debut horror film Tigers Are Not Afraid (trailer above) couldn’t have been a bigger departure from her earlier career. Filled with wonder and grit and meaningful insights into childhood, trauma, and the human soul in the harshest environment imaginable, the film has been racking up fans and awards long before its U.S. release on Shudder. Guillermo del Toro luckily saw the film and immediately signed up to produce her next movies, so this Master in the making is already well on her way.Guillermo del Toro(Photo by Kerry Hayes/©Universal Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection)Speaking of Guillermo del Toro, it’s difficult to overstate how much of a boon for horror this visionary director has been, but del Toro was pioneering new directions for horror years before it came back in fashion. From Cronos and The Devil’s Backbone all the way up to Pan’s Labyrinth and the slept-on Crimson Peak, del Toro’s body of work feels so ingrained in the culture that it’s almost easy to take him for granted. Not to mention that he’s spent a great deal of time championing the newer generation of horror directors like Issa Lopez, Scott Cooper, and André Øvredal, producing double the number of films he directs himself. He is, for all intents and purposes, the godfather of the new Masters of Horror.Isa Mazzei Daniel Goldhaber(Photo by © Netflix)This pair of collaborators burst on the scene with last year’s Netflix horror hit, Cam (pictured above), about a cam girl sex worker whose identity is stolen and used against her. In a novel twist, the film was also respectful of women, Johns, and sex workers, never resorting to staid clichés, signaling that the pair could inclusively expand the frontiers of horror. Announcements for their next project with Blumhouse have been thin, but the film is certainly driven by women, and they’ll also be wading into TV horror with a segment for Quibi’s new 50 States of Fear.Pascal Laugier(Photo by ©Weinstein Company/Courtesy Everett Collection)Martyrs (pictured above) is not what many would call an easy film to watch. But Pascal Laugier’s most notorious feature is quite masterful. A story that opens like a revenge flick but closes with a hammer-to-the-nose of philosophical insights into perceived womanhood and spirituality, Martyrs follows in the New French Extremity footsteps of Claire Denis’ Trouble Every Day. After Martyrs, Laugier tried his hand at American horror with Jessica Biel starrer The Tall Man, but returned to his roots in 2018’s Incident in a Ghostland. Laugier shows that gore with a brain is on the menu for horror fans.Andy Muschietti(Photo by Brooke Palmer/© Warner Bros. /Courtesy Everett Collection)In 2013, Argentine director Andy Muschietti had an international hit on his hands with Mamá, about a young couple who take in their two young nieces but find that a malicious supernatural entity has decided they’re her next victims of a haunting. The film starred Jessica Chastain, setting up Muschietti’s desire to make genre but with actors of high esteem attached, which led to his re-envisioning Stephen King’s It in a two-movie release, vaunted for its playful but serious take on the story. Next up, Muschietti’s going the monster route with an adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan, and is rumored to be directing DC’s The Flash.Kiyoshi Kurosawa(Photo by © Kimstim Films / courtesy Everett Collection)Kiyoshi Kurosawa is not a newcomer by any means. He’s been working steadily in genre and outside of it since the 1980s, as a critic, commercial artist, and a creative filmmaker. In 2001, he released his most well-known cult film Pulse, but his recent return to genre suggests he’s not quite finished being a Master. In 2016, he released Creepy, a thrilling hardboiled mystery, which he then followed up with Before We Vanish, which is an alien invasion story equal parts horror and humor that opens with a risky, bloody bang.Nicolas Pesce(Photo by © Magnet Releasing /Courtesy Everett Collection)The Eyes of My Mother (pictured above), Nicolas Pesce’s debut feature, bucks so many contemporary trends of horror, shot in black and white like a high-art film but with the creeping childishness of Tobe Hooper. He followed that up with a Cronenberg Crash-style film called Piercing that turns a sex-torture story into a screwball comedy of errors and power dynamics. Pesce’s films explore loneliness and connection with wry humor, and yet somehow it’s his visual style, evocative of classic films filled with texture and tactile pleasantness like every object has meaning and purpose, that make him a new Master.Anna Biller(Photo by © Oscilloscope / courtesy Everett Collection)Anna Biller’s version of horror feels akin to classic fairy tales. They are rife with artifice yet also completely honest. Focused on sex and sexuality but coy and childlike. There is the sense that the director is telling the story of the world as it is while simultaneously wishing the world to be different. Viva is more an off-kilter soapy drama, while her film The Love Witch (pictured above) more fully embodies horror. Rumor has it she’s been shopping another horror story based on the Bluebeard tale, but be patient for her next one: Biller’s obsessive about costuming, locations, and production design, and makes most everything herself, which is a time-consuming act but is ultimately the key to her success as a modern Master.Agnieszka Smoczynska(Photo by ©Janus Films)Half the fun of Agnieszka Smoczyńska’s debut feature The Lure (pictured above) is describing it for those who don’t know: a gritty, glittery Polish mermaid horror disco musical. The film was a time capsule of Cold War-era dancing clubs, mixed with classic fairy tales and contemporary rage-filled feminism. Music that’s as catchy as it is dark and an almost surreal, theatrical production design set The Lure apart, earning it an almost instant Criterion release. Her follow-up, Fugue, looks inward for a more cerebral melodrama of psychological terror, with the kind of innovative camera work and sensitivity that display Smoczynska’s ability to play with mind as well as body in her horror.Peter Strickland(Photo by © A24)Peter Strickland digested decades of Italian gore and giallo films, then washed it down the exploitation work of Jess Franco and spit out such atmospheric insta-classics as Berberian Sound Studio and The Duke of Burgundy. His newest film In Fabric (poster above) had so much hype and magic behind it that A24 quickly snapped it up out of the festivals. Both eerie and ethereal, In Fabric tells the story of a murderous red dress; like a chilling version of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, this thing will fit everyone but also kill them. And like his predecessors, Strickland squeezes every inch of terror out of sound design and trippy, mirrored effects, perfectly marrying the past with the present.Ana Lily Amirpour(Photo by ©Kino Lorber)Ana Lily Amirpour’s low-budget indie hit A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (pictured above) thrilled for its simple but fully realized black-and-white graphic novel aesthetics. It’s not every filmmaker whose first film creates some of the most memorable iconography in recent horror film history, but Amirpour’s vision of a young woman gliding on a skateboard with her veil flowing behind her struck a chord for women, a seeming statement about feminine violence and traditional values butting up against Western ideals. Her follow-up The Bad Batch was a sunny apocalyptic trip through the desert, but in the meantime she directed a beloved episode of the new Twilight Zone and has been attached to the remake of Cliffhanger.Babak Anvari(Photo by Kit Fraser / © Vertical Entertainment / courtesy Everett Collection)Babak Anvari’s Under the Shadow (pictured above) broke new ground in folk horror and is a rare Certified Fresh at 99%. In it, he exploited the tale of jinn, those malevolent spirits of Islamic mythology, but grounded the story in the very real cultural conflict of the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s, as told through a belabored mother who’d much rather finish her medical degree than stay at home with the young daughter who acts almost like an anchor to a more traditional life. Vivid and tense, the film found an international audience, leading to his newest release, an American production called Wounds and a new television series titled North American Lake Monsters, where Anvari can further dig into local lore.David F. Sandberg(Photo by Justin Lubin. ©Warner Bros.)David F. Sandberg’s short “Lights Out” terrified audiences internationally with a simple light trick that harkened back to the early days of horror. That short, made for nothing and starring his charismatic wife Lotta Losten, was then developed into a feature starring Teresa Palmer. James Wan continued to help Sandberg develop his career, giving him a spot in The Conjuring franchise, directing Annabelle: Creation. Sandberg has temporarily waded into superheroes with the lighthearted Shazam!, but he’s stated he’s looking forward to coming back to horror real soon, hopefully utilizing the same creative low-budget ideas that gave him his big break.James Wan(Photo by Michael Tackett/©Warner Bros. Pictures/courtesy Everett Collection)Speaking of James Wan, no Masters of Horror list would be complete without the Aussie who harnessed the powers of surprise and low budgets to flip the entire industry on its head with the Saw and Insidious franchises, and then again with The Conjuring. He’s the pop filmmaker of our time, delivering the kind of popcorn fare that actually brings people to the theater, a rare feat. Like his Mexican counterpart Guillermo del Toro, Wan is also producing others’ work at a breakneck pace, passing the torch to his longtime collaborator Leigh Whannell, and Patrick Brice, Akela Cooper, and Michael Chaves.Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer(Photo by Kerry Hayes / © Paramount / courtesy Everett Collection)Starry Eyes wasn’t Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer’s first feature, but it was the one that got them long applause at SXSW and a whole lot of horror cred with its black comic take on the entertainment industry, imagining the casting couch as a place to reap souls for Satan. Alex Essoe’s performance as a desperate starlet was one for the history books. At times gruesome and wacky, the film got them the gig remaking Pet Sematary and working on the Scream TV series.Robert Eggers(Photo by ©A24)Robert Eggers may be known for The VVitch, but he might also be known for his obsessively detailed nature, which had him mastering settler’s English for the script and getting the period details correct down to the tiniest nib, likely from his time as a production and costume designer in theater and film. Like Kubrick before him, Eggers is intent on crafting worlds, and his newest film The Lighthouse (pictured above), though more horror-adjacent than his debut, is just as meticulous, digging again into hysteria and how isolation and harsh environments can unravel the mind.Sophia Takal(Photo by . © Oscilloscope / courtesy Everett Collection)Sophia Takal’s trajectory into horror began with low-budget psychological romps through feminine hysteria, in both Green and then her more defined follow-up Always Shine (pictured above), which pitted two young actresses against one another in a remote Big Sur cabin. Her episode of Into the Dark marked an entry into the world of slashers, marrying the cerebral with the bloody physical, and her next film, a remake of the very first slasher, Black Christmas [disclosure: the author of this article is the co-writer of this film], will test that marriage and the viability of slashers in general in this day and age.Don t see our favorite horror filmmaker above?
