bob娱乐体育线上平台采用百度引擎2(Baidu 3)This week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Blacula, The Rose, The Toxic Avenger, and the Marvin Gaye biopic.This WEEK S TOP STORYCOLIN FARRELL AND RACHEL WEISZ TO REUNITE IN TODD SOLONDZ S LOVE CHILD(Photo by Karwai Tang/Getty Images)Director Yorgos Lanthimos gave us a strange take on romantic relationships in The Lobster (Certified Fresh at 87%), starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, and their next project together seems like it might be thematically similar. The project was announced this week during the Cannes (virtual) market, with Farrell and Weisz attached to star in Love Child, a dark comedy from director Todd Solondz (Happiness, Wiener Dog, Welcome to the Dollhouse), who describes it as my first movie with a plot and my first movie taking place in Texas. That plot is described as a dark and hilarious twist on the classic Oedipus story, with a precocious kid who schemes to rid himself of his brutish dad so he can have his mom all to himself. But things go awry when a handsome stranger appears. Weisz will presumably play the Mom, but it s unclear whether Colin Farrell will play the dad or the handsome stranger (or, since this is a Solondz movie, maybe he ll play both?).Other Top Headlines1. CYNTHIA ERIVO TO REMAKE BETTE MIDLER S THE ROSE (Photo by Eli Winston/Everett Collection)Hollywood has been trying to make a proper Janis Joplin biopic since the 1970s (and the legal struggles were such that 30 Rock spoofed it the Jackie Jormp-Jomp episode). In 1979, one such Joplin project was fictionalized and retitled as The Rose (Fresh at 78%) instead of The Pearl, with Bette Midler starring as a beloved singer struggling with substance addiction. Cynthia Erivo is now set to star in a remake of The Rose for Searchlight Pictures, although there is currently no director or writer. Erivo began her career on Broadway before expanding to film in movies like Widows, Bad Times at the El Royale, and as Harriet Tubman in Harriet. It s worth noting that she has won an Emmy, a Grammy, and a Tony Award (all for The Color Purple), which means that she s only an Academy Award win away from earning EGOT status. Cynthia Erivo is currently starring as Aretha Franklin in National Geographic s Genius: Aretha (not to be confused with Jennifer Hudson s upcoming Respect), and she will also co-star as the Blue Fairy in Pinocchio on Disney+ in 2022.2. KRISTEN WIIG TO STAR IN STEPFORD WIVES-ESQUE THRILLER THE HUSBANDS (Photo by Wilson Webb/20th Century Fox)We ll never really be able to know how much better some films that were released during the COVID-19 pandemic might have done at the box office otherwise. One of those films, which opted for a streaming release in February, was the vacation comedy Barb Star Go to Vista Del Mar (Certified Fresh at 79%), starring Kristen Wiig and her Bridesmaids (Certified Fresh at 90%) screenwriting partner Annie Mumolo. MGM is now partnering with Brad Pitt s Plan B production company on an adaptation of the novel The Husbands by author Chandler Baker, who will also adapt the screenplay from her own novel., and Wiig is signed on to star. Described as a Stepford Wives-esque thriller, The Husbands centers on an overworked mother who, while house-hunting in a nice suburban neighborhood, meets a group of high-powered women with enviably supportive husbands (and presuming the comparison to The Stepford Wives is accurate, you can probably guess where The Husbands goes from there).3. PAUL GIAMATTI TO REUNITE WITH SIDEWAYS DIRECTOR ALEXANDER PAYNE IN THE HOLDOVERS(Photo by Jeff Neumann/©Showtime)In 2004, director Alexander Payne had just directed three films (Citizen Ruth, Election, About Schmidt), but his fourth, Sideways, a seemingly unambitious buddy comedy about two wine enthusiasts, ended up being something of an arthouse blockbuster, earning over 0 million, five Academy Award nominations, and an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. The stars of Sideways were Thomas Haden Church and Paul Giamatti, and now, Giamatti is set to reunite with Payne on another indie-flavored comedy called The Holdovers. Giamatti will play a universally disliked teacher at a prep school during Christmas, 1970, as he has to watch over the holdovers, who are students unable to go home. Filming of The Holdovers is scheduled to start in early 2022 on location in New England.4. DR. DRE PRODUCING MARVIN GAYE BIOPIC WHAT S GOING ON (Photo by Everett Collection)Musical biopics are all the rage, particularly with the box office success, critical and audience acclaim, and awards attention of several recent films; the most recent Oscars ceremony alone recognized Ma Rainey s Black Bottom (Certified Fresh at 98%), The United States vs Billie Holliday, and (partly) One Night in Miami (Certified Fresh at 98%). So it shouldn t surprise anyone particularly readers of this column that new ones are announced with great regularity, and the big new project his week involves 1960s and 1970s soul and R B star Marvin Gaye, whose story will be told in What s Going On, which takes its title from one of Gaye s most famous songs (and albums). What s Going On will be produced by Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine, and Andrew Lazar, and directed by Allen Hughes (Menace II Society, Dead Presidents, The Book of Eli). The budget of What s Going On will reportedly be the biggest ever for an African American music biopic, north of million, and it s expected to be released sometime in 2023. In related news, the long-in-development disco-era Spinning Gold, about Casablanca Records founder Neil Bogart (to be played by his son) is finally moving forward, with a supporting cast that includes Wiz Khalifa as George Clinton, Tayla Parx as Donna Summer, and Ledisi as Gladys Knight. Lastly, another musical biopic starting to cast up is I Wanna Dance with Somebody, starring Naomi Ackie as Whitney Houston, with Moses Ingram (of the upcoming Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi) as Houston s longtime friend and assistant Robyn Crawford.5. EWAN MCGREGOR TO CLIMB EVEREST IN GEORGE MALLORY BIOPIC (Photo by Neil Davidson/IFC Films courtesy Everett Collection)Sometimes movies with similar premises or settings are released within a few years of each other. The 2015 action thriller Everest (Fresh at 73%), for example, was set on Mount Everest, but it was not about any of the famously historical attempts to first climb the mountain. That will be the premise of another movie called Everest, in which Ewan McGregor will star as English mountaineer George Mallory, along with Mark Strong as Arthur Hinks and Sam Heughan as George Finch. Jeffrey Archer s novel Paths of Glory (not to be confused with the Stanley Kubrick film) is described as inspiring Everest. Director Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity) will direct Everest from a screenplay by Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air) when filming starts in the UK and Italy in January, 2022.6. ICE CUBE TO SAY OH HELL NO TO HIS MOM DATING JACK BLACK (Photo by Scott Garfield/©Columbia Pictures, Deana Newcomb/©Millennium Entertainment)Sometimes, we pretty much give you the entire story in the headline, and there it is. Jack Black is now in negotiations with Sony Pictures to star in the quickly-coming-together comedy Oh Hell No, starring Ice Cube and to be directed by Kitao Sakurai, who is fresh off the release of his COVID-delayed comedy Bad Trip (Certified Fresh at 76%). Ice Cube will play a man who becomes very upset when he discovers that his mom is dating Jack Black s character. Sony Pictures has scheduled Oh Hell No for release on June 17, 2022, which currently puts it up against Pixar and Disney s Lightyear origin story for their Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear, to be voiced by Chris Evans.7. SIX DEGREES OF THE TOXIC AVENGER: KEVIN BACON CAST AS THE REBOOT S VILLAIN (Photo by RCF/Everett Collection)Producer Lloyd Kaufman s ultra-low-budget production company Troma Entertainment has given us such schlocky titles as Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D., Tromeo Juliet, The Class of Nuke Em High (and its four sequels), and most infamously, The Toxic Avenger (and its three sequels). Big-time Hollywood production company Legendary Entertainment gives us super-expensive movies like Christopher Nolan s Batman trilogy, the Jurassic World franchise, and recently, Godzilla vs Kong. Surely, there is no project that could ever connect the two, right? That notion went out the window when Legendary decided to reboot Troma s The Toxic Avenger, with Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage taking over as the toxic waste-powered superhero. We also now know that the slick villain of The Toxic Avenger will be played by Kevin Bacon. Elijah Wood also signed onto the film this week, as did prolific character actor Jonny Coyne, joining a growing ensemble that  includes Jacob Tremblay (as Toxie s son), Taylour Paige, Julia Davis, and Sarah Niles.

(Photo by Netflix)The Best Witch TV Shows (And the Worst)It s October, so the fires are burning and cauldrons are bubbling — but it doesn’t have to be autumn to embrace all things witchy. (Of course it helps, but every season is a good season for magic.)We ve gathered our favorite television series where the occult takes center stage: Think your Sabrina the Teenage Witch(es), your Charmed sisters, even your nose-twitching suburban housewives. Not every show here is specifically about witches, but they all contain major characters of the bruja persuasion. Think: the powerful wife of time-traveling Ichabod Crane in Sleepy Hollow, Red Priestess Melisandre in Game of Thrones, and Nightcomer leader Evelyn Poole on Penny Dreadful. And yeah, The Vampire Diaries was mainly about blood-sucking supernatural creatures, but witches played a major role on the series (and an even bigger one on spinoff The Originals).This isn t a ranking of the witches themselves — though you can rank your favorites here if you want! — but rather a ranking of the series on which they appear by their series-level Tomatometer score. For those shows without series scores, they re listed them alphabetically Z-A ahead of the scored shows listed below. The Fast Furious franchise – now in presenting mode – continued a long tradition of dropping sharply in its second weekend, though Hobbs Shaw still made enough to hold on for the top spot at the box office for at least one more week. Teenagers did actually come close to dethroning Statham and The Rock, but it was not the kids most expected to lead the way among five new wide releases.King of the Crop: Hobbs Shaw Leads Weekend But Trails In Series(Photo by © Universal Pictures)Since the 50% drop of the surprise hit original back in 2001, the lowest drop among its sequels in their second weekend was the 59.1% for 2006’s Tokyo Drift. That was also the one film that didn t feature Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, and it had the lowest opening (.97 million) and is the only film in the franchise to not gross 7 million or higher. It grossed .51 million, which Hobbs Shaw nearly bested in its opening weekend. Nevertheless, the film – which had the sixth best opening of the series – dropped 57.7% from its first weekend, putting it in the league of the sequels which have fallen 59.1% to 63.9% over time.That brings the film’s total to 8.5 million after 10 days, which is also the sixth best in the series, trailing the 6.49 million of the fourth entry, 2009 s Fast Furious. That film made .23 million in weekend two (after a 61.6% drop) and finished with 5.06 million. Hobbs Shaw is currently hovering just over Rise of the Planet of the Apes for the eighth best gross for an August release after 10 days, but that film also had a stronger second weekend with .83 million. The first spinoff of the Furious franchise is currently looking at a final gross between 0 million and 1 million. The global total for the 0 million production stands at 2 million.Fresh Surprise: Could There Be More Scary Stories To Tell?Joel MearesCBS Films, under the Lionsgate banner, look like they may have a little hit on their hands. The million production Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark had a strong start with a .8 million opening. Lionsgate has had a back-and-forth summer, first with the weaker-than-expected performance of Charlize Theron/Seth Rogen romantic comedy, Long Shot, and then with Luc Besson’s Anna grossing less than million. But in between that they had John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum. The ending of Scary Stories suggests there is hope of turning this into a series (so many stories to still tackle), and surely Lionsgate hopes it can outlast some of its 2019 horror counterparts until It: Chapter Two opens after Labor Day and leaves them all in the dust.The Stories opening is slightly better than Annabelle Comes Home’s .26 million. (The Wednesday opener had .46 million in its first three days.) The Pet Sematary remake and The Curse of La Llorona (both “R”-rated) opened to .34 million and .50 million, respectively, and finished with nearly identical grosses of .73 million and .72 million. The “PG-13”-rated Escape Room opened to .23 million and finished with million. Scary Stories ranks as the eighth best horror opening ever in August, ahead of The Last Exorcism (.36 million) and Exorcist: The Beginning (.05 million), both of which also finished with nearly identical totals of .03 million and .82 million, respectively. On first glance, Scary Stories sets a first estimate somewhere between million and million.Rotten Returns: A Rough Weekend for Stories About Crime and Unfair Punishment(Photo by Alison Cohen Rosa / © Warner Bros.)Audiences were either unaware or unwilling to attend the true story of a 2002 NFL prospect falsely accused of rape, Brian Banks. This was only the fifth wide opening in Bleecker Street’s five-year history and the .1 million start – not enough to crack the top 10 – translated into their third-worst per-theater-average (,492), ahead of only Elvis Nixon’s ,224 PTA in 381 theaters back in 2016 and their release of Netflix’s Beasts of No Nation (,645 in 31 theaters). The studio had their fourth highest-grossing film ever this year back in March with Hotel Mumbai (.65 million) and released The Art of Self-Defense last month, which has grossed .41 million to date.Looking even worse, though, is Warner Bros.’ The Kitchen. The movie s 20% Tomatometer score makes it not just one of the worst-reviewed films of the summer – down with The Hustle  (14%) and Men In Black International (22%) – but one of the 10 worst-reviewed wide releases of 2019. Last year, WB did not have a film open to less than million; with .51 million this weekend, The Kitchen becomes the third WB movie to open with less than million this summer after The Sun Is Also A Star (.51 million) and Shaft (.90 million). They had four films open with less than million in 2017. Last summer’s The Happytime Murders, with Melissa McCarthy, opened to .53 million. It was her lowest opening as a headliner to date – until The Kitchen.The Top 10 and Beyond: Dora Gets Slightly Lost as Disney Continues to Rack Up Milestones(Photo by © Paramount Pictures)There were still two more wide releases this week and the results were not great for either. Many actually gave Dora and the Lost City of Gold a puncher’s chance of knocking Hobbs Shaw from the top spot, but it could not even beat Scary Stories. A million opening is not the end of the world, but the million production is going to need some help to turn a profit. That opening is about on par with the August release of Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams (.71 million) back in 2002, a film which went on to gross .84 million. Though that would require a 5x multiple over opening weekend, something only four films opening in more than 2,000 theaters have achieved this millennium: Crazy Rich Asians (6.58x), The Help (6.51x), We’re the Millers (5.69x), and The 40 Year-Old Virgin (5.1x).The Art of Racing in the Rain, this week s final wide release, did about half of Dora’s business, making just a little more (.1 million) than this summer’s sequel to A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Journey (.03 million). Advertised as being from the studio that brought you Marley Me, nobody expected it to reach that film’s heights. Though without any decent word-of-mouth, the film will likely not even reach the .64 million that Fox’s 2005 dog drama, Because of Winn-Dixie, made nor will it touch the .35 million that Marley grossed in its opening weekend.(Photo by Andrew Cooper / © Columbia Pictures)Over to some films that can certainly register as success stories. The Lion King has grossed 3.1 million, which is the ninth best ever after 24 days of release. Even though the top 15 films on that list had stronger fourth weekends, the film is still headed for 0 million-to-0 million domestic. With .33 billion worldwide, the film is just .3 million away from becoming one of the 10 highest-grossing films of all time. Then we have Toy Story 4, which is just million away from crossing the billion dollar line and is currently the 43rd highest-grossing film ever; it is also just .3 million away from passing Captain Marvel to become the 3rd-highest domestic grosser of 2019. Spider-Man: Far From Home was already over the billion mark before the weekend; this week it will crack the .1 billion mark and is close to entering the top 25 all-time earners, even if it will come up short of 0 million domestic.Then we have a film that is not a sequel, not a comic book film, not a live-action remake, and not a Pokémon. Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood became the first original film of the summer – and just second of 2019 joining Jordan Peele’s Us – to gross over 0 million. Speaking of gross, Tarantino’s acclaimed film is actually right on pace with, of all films, Grown Ups 2, which grossed a virtually identical .6 million in its third weekend and had 1.76 million after 17 days. It ultimately grossed 3.66 million and there is a good chance that Hollywood will eventually pass that number, too.(Photo by © A24)Finally, A24 brought The Farewell into wide release this weekend, putting it in 704 theaters (up from last week’s 409). Lulu Wang’s film, Certified Fresh at 99% on the Tomatometer, grossed just .2 million this weekend, which pales in comparison to other fifth-week releases between 650-750 theaters. The bulk of them are films which got their expansions during awards season, which is an entirely different beast. But there are comparable summer releases out of Sundance like Zach Braff’s Garden State, which was in its second week of wide release in 745 theaters grossing .79 million, and the documentary sensation, March of the Penguins, which expanded into wide release on weekend five (695 theaters) and grossed .38 million.Though there is also a glass-half-full situation as well, as long as A24 continues to expand and keeps chipping its way forward with a million or two each week. Garden State had .85 million after a month of release (The Farewell is at .32 million), never grossed higher than .02 million in a weekend, and was never in more than 813 theaters. It ended up grossing .7 million.This Time Last Year: A Big Shark, A Slender Man, and a Black Klansman Opened(Photo by © Warner Bros. )All 75 feet of The Meg took the number 1 spot at the box office. The giant shark film grossed .4 million and began a climb to over 0 million worldwide. The horror film Slender Man grossed .37 million for fourth place, while Spike Lee’s Oscar-winning BlacKkKlansman opened to .84 million. In milestones, Ant-Man and the Wasp crossed the 0 million mark and Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again passed 0 million. The top 10 films grossed 6.97 million and averaged 64.7% on the Tomatometer; this year’s top 10 grossed 0.32 million and averaged 67.1% with critics.On the Vine: Another Crowded Weekend Led by Potty Mouths And Angry Birds(Photo by © Universal Pictures)It is another packed weekend that could be led by Good Boys, the Seth Rogen production featuring the “R”-rated adventures of Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams. Will audiences return for a second flock of The Angry Birds Movie 2 or will it fall victim to the August animation trap right as kids return to school? The same question can be asked of 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, the sequel to the minor sharkbait hit of 2017. Richard Linklater teams with Cate Blanchett on the delayed Where’d You Go, Bernadette, which is his first film not to play any film festivals prior to release since his 2005 remake of Bad News Bears. Finally, one of the sensations of this year’s Sundance was Gurinder Chadha’s Blinded by the Light, starring Viveik Kalra as a guy who becomes inspired to live out his dream as a writer thanks to the music of Bruce Springsteen.The Full Top 10: August 9-11Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) 67% – .4 million (8.51 million total)Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) 77% – .8 million (.8 million total)The Lion King (2019) 52% – million (3.1 million total)Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) 85% – million ( million total)Once Upon a Time...

This Week s Ketchup brings you seven headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as One-Punch Man, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark 2, and Venom: Let There Be Carnage. This WEEK S TOP STORYSONY DELAYS SPIDER-MAN AND VENOM SEQUELS, MOVES UP UNCHARTED(Photo by ©Marvel/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)This week saw a number of release date changes for some of Sony s biggest titles, beginning with the Venom sequel, starring Tom Hardy as the titular anti-hero and Woody Harrelson as (presumably) the crimson red serial killer Carnage. That movie had been scheduled for October 2, 2020, but Venom 2 became Venom: Let There Be Carnage as it got bumped back eight months to next summer on June 25, 2021 (taking the spot where The Batman previously was to have been released). Sony Pictures also quickly took advantage of the announcement to Tweet out a brief teaser of the new title. Then, late on Friday, Sony further announced that its third Spider-Man film featuring the MCU s Tom Holland, which was set to open on July 16, 2021, will be pushed back four months to November 5, the release date of Marvel s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which was itself then also pushed back to March 5, 2022. Remember that domino effect we were talking about? Holland s other big film, the video game adaptation Uncharted, was then moved forward from October 8, 2021 to replace the untitled Spider-Man sequel in the now-vacant July 16 slot. To top it all off, the sequel to the Oscar-winning animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which had been planned for April 8, 2022, was also pushed back six months to October 7 of the same year. Whew!Other Top Headlines1. WARNER BROS. DELAYS THE RELEASES OF THE BATMAN AND SHAZAM 2 (Photo by Matt Reeves)Some of the movies originally scheduled for the summer of 2020 have been pushed back because of COVID-19, which has resulted in a domino effect, with their delays leading to delays in other films. In some cases, the movies scheduled for next year that were supposed to be filming right now need that much more extra time to get filmed, get through post-production, and get released. Few movies need quite as much time as supehero movies do, so it was probably always inevitable that Warner Bros. would have to push some of their 2021 and 2022 DC Comics movies back a bit. The biggest film being delayed is The Batman, from 6/25/2021 to October 1, 2021. Shazam! 2 was to have been released on April 1, 2022, but is now scheduled for November 4, 2022. Another studio that delayed two of their big franchise movies is Paramount Pictures, which has delayed Mission: Impossible 7 from 7/23/2021 to 11/19/2021 and Mission: Impossible 8 from 8/5/2022 to 11/4/2022, which is a curious move because it means they just put their big Tom Cruise action movie right up against the Shazam! sequel that also just moved.2. ARE YOU READY FOR (MORE) SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK? (Photo by CBS Films)Lionsgate probably did not have as big of box office success with last year s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (Certified Fresh at 78%) (5 million worldwide) as they might have hoped, but the PG-13 horror film was also produced relatively cheaply ( million), and it s also one that should have a good shelf life, since it can be revived every Halloween for a new generation of kids. That is presumably part of why Paramount Pictures (taking over from CBS Films) felt confident enough with the possible new franchise as they have pulled the trigger on a sequel by hiring the same director and writers. Director André Øvredal (Trollhunter, The Autopsy of Jane Doe) and writers Dan and Kevin Hageman can now spend their COVID-19 stay-at-home time working on a new set of stories from Alvin Schwartz s original anthology books for the next movie. Which stories from the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books do you think should be adapted for the second movie?3. A HUNGER GAMES PREQUEL IS IN THE WORKS(Photo by Murray Close/Lionsgate courtesy Everett Collection)Before Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace came out over 20 years ago, there was a time when people were perhaps more optimistic about a popular franchise going back a generation to tell a prequel story about the franchise s big bad villain. Now, people look back at the Star Wars prequels and many think three movies about the young Darth Vader were maybe not a great deal, but hey, another popular franchise would never make the same mistake, right? Tell that to the people who mad The Hunger Games, because author Suzanne Collins has written an upcoming novel called The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (5/19/2020) about the future villain Coriolanus Snow when he was a young 18-year-old man. Lionsgate has quickly picked up the rights to The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, which will again be directed by Francis Lawrence, who directed all of the Hunger Games movies except the first one. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes tells the story of young Coriolanus Snow, who is frustrated when he discovers he has been assigned to mentor the girl tribute from impoverished District 12 (the same district that Jennifer Lawrence s Katniss Everdeen will also eventually come from).4. POPULAR ANIME FRANCHISE ONE-PUNCH MAN GETS LIVE-ACTION ADAPTATION(Photo by Viz Media)Although last year s Pokemon: Detective Pikachu was usually credited as being a success for video game movies, the argumennt could also be made that it was just as much an adaptation of anime and manga, which is another type of live-action adaptation that has mostly struggled in Hollywood to date. As with most of these situations, it s inevitably just a matter of time before someone in the industry figures out the right project, which then becomes a big enough success that it opens the gates for others. Sony Pictures is gambling that perhaps the popular anime series One-Punch Man could be exactly that, as they are now developing a live-action One-Punch Man movie, which will be adapted for the big screen by Venom screenwriters Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. One-Punch Man tells the continuing adventures of a superhero called Saitama who has perfected his fighting abilities to the point where he can literally defeat any opponent with just one punch, but that overwhelming power has also left him bored with his life.

(Photo by Jackson Lee Davis/AMC)Despite leading a show like The Walking Dead, in which any character can die at any time, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) has survived for nine years. But now that Lincoln has left the show — and will star in his own series of The Walking Dead movies — Daryl (Norman Reedus) is stepping up and a whole new crew of survivors is populating the post-apocalyptic world. An older, Walker-wise Judith Grimes (Cailey Fleming) and new characters Magna (Nadia Hilker), Yamiko (Eleanor Matsuura), Connie (Lauren Ridloff), Kelly (Angel Theory), and Luke (Dan Fogler) are among the new blood the series has brought in to fill TWD s Rick Grimes–shaped void.The Walking Dead is only the latest show that has had to move on in the wake of a major cast member departure. Throughout TV history, shows have dealt with losing their stars for various reasons — and in some cases the shows grew stronger with the new cast. Not all benefitted from a cast swap, however — there are certainly some duds on Rotten Tomatoes list of the most famous television replacements. Read on to find out who was replaced and why, along with how their departure was explained on screen.22. Beverly Hills, 90210 (Photo by ©Aaron Spelling Prod./Courtesy Everett Collection; Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Brenda Walsh (Shannen Doherty, pictured right)The Replacement: Valerie Malone (Tiffani Amber Thiessen, pictured left)The Reason: In 2015 Tori Spelling revealed that she eventually made a call to her father, producer Aaron Spelling, asking him to fire Doherty over her conflicts with the cast and crew.The Explanation: Brenda left for drama school in London. Valerie Malone, a bad girl from Minnesota, came to live with the Walshes for seasons 5 through 10 of 90210. In 1994, Thiessen told press on the set she thought she was cast because “they heard I had a reputation for being easy to work with.”21. Charmed (Photo by ©Warner Bros/Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Prue Halliwell (Doherty)The Replacement: Paige (Rose McGowan)The Reason: According to the New York Daily News, Alyssa Milano gave producers of the original WB show (not to be confused with the 2018 reboot) an ultimatum: It was either her or Doherty. The show’s producers said Doherty wanted to leave, and they let her.The Explanation: Prue is killed by demons, and, shortly thereafter, the Halliwells discover a long-lost fourth sister, Paige, who ended up sticking around from season 4 through the show s remaining eight seasons. There s no bad blood on McGowan s part, however: The actress wrote to Doherty via Instagram when Doherty underwent cancer treatment: “The men brainwashed women in our business made it so we couldn t be friends. I regret that.”20. Baywatch (Photo by Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: C.J. Parker (Pamela Anderson, pictured)The Replacements: Donna Marco (Donna D’Errico) and Lani McKenzie (Carmen Electra)The Reason: Anderson left Baywatch to focus on being a mother.The Explanation: C.J. Parker got married off the show, and it took two new lifeguards to fill her sandy footprints. While Carmen Electra told Esquire, “I don’t think I was hired as a replacement,” costar Kelly Packard recalled auditions for “a room of Pamela Anderson–looking women” and Traci Bingham said Donna “thought she was Pamela.” Electra was only on the series for one season and D’Errico for two, but the casting proved that a rotating roster of lifeguards could survive long into syndication.19. Anger Management 23%(Photo by FX)Outgoing Character: Kate Wales (Selma Blair)The Replacement: Dr. Jordan Denby (Laura Bell Bundy, pictured)The Reason: TMZ reported that Blair complained to the producers about Sheen’s unprofessional behavior, and Sheen demanded she be fired. Sheen told Jay Leno that Blair was written out because viewers expected the show to be about their relationship.The Explanation: Charlie Goodson (Sheen) stopped seeing Kate for anger management therapy, but went into business with Dr. Denby. Reviews for Anger Management were never all that Fresh (season 1 has a 23% score on 35 reviews), so the switch didn’t seem to change much on the series — except perhaps, given season 2 s three meager reviews, that most critics stopped paying attention.18. Lethal Weapon 89%(Photo by Fox)Outgoing Character: Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford)The Replacement: Wesley Cole (Sean William Scott, pictured)The Reason: Warner Brothers fired Crawford for abusive behavior, which Crawford insisted was only in response to difficulties with costar Damon Wayans.The Explanation: The character of Riggs survived four films and a perma-rumored fifth, but on TV he was shot and killed. Scott told EW, “For a lot of fans that are upset that they’re not going to see Riggs, which I totally understand, I really believe they’re going to feel ‘OK, they handled it in a way that’s really respectful to that character and what he means to the show.’”17. Criminal Minds (Photo by CBS)Outgoing Character: Jason Gideon (Mandy Patinkin)The Replacement: David Rossi (Joe Mantegna, pictured)The Reason: Patinkin said that the violent subject matter of the murder-centric series was “destructive to my soul.”The Explanation: Mirroring Patinkin s own experience, Gideon also left the Behavioral Analysis Unit due to emotional distress. His former partner Rossi has filled in ever since and continues to lead the show in its 14th season.16. Chicago Hope (Photo by CBS)Outgoing Character: Dr. Jeffrey Geiger (Mandy Patinkin)The Replacement: Dr. Kate Austin (Christine Lahti, pictured)The Reason: Patinkin wanted to be with his family in New York, while Hope filmed in Los Angeles.The Explanation: Geiger resigned after he couldn’t save Alan Birch (Peter MacNicol) from a gunshot wound, although the show insisted Dr. Austin was not replacing him. Unlike Criminal Minds, Patinkin did return for guest appearances on Chicago Hope.15. Nashville 91%(Photo by CMT)The Character: Rayna James (Connie Britton)The Replacements: Alyssa Greene (Rachel Bilson, pictured) and Jessie Craine (Kaitlin Doubleday)The Reason: When the series was canceled by ABC and moved to CMT, Britton decided to leave the show, working with the writers to give Rayna a dramatic finale.The Explanation: Rayna died in the hospital from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Doubleday s singer/songwriter Jessie Craine and Bilson s Highway 65 record label exec Alyssa Greene joined the cast in the series fifth season, with Bilson leaving at the end of that season and Doubleday staying on through the sixth and final year.Doubleday prepared for the worst when she entered the show, she told The Boot: “If everyone hates me, it doesn’t matter. It’s a paycheck. I’ve felt pretty at home since the day I got here.”Interestingly, Britton left 9-1-1 after only one season, and Jennifer Love Hewitt stepped in as a new call center operator. She also appeared in only the first of eight seasons of Ryan Murphy s American Horror Story anthology series, while other stars from season 1, like Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Jessica Lange, formed something like a troupe and continued with the show.14. CHARLIE’S ANGELS(Photo by Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Jill Munroe (Farrah Fawcett, pictured left)The Replacement: Kris Munroe (Cheryl Ladd, pictured right)The Reason: When Fawcett left the show, she said it was because it prevented her from growing as an actor. Producer Aaron Spelling sued her for million.The Explanation: Jill resigned from the Angels to become a race-car driver, and — wouldn’t you know it? — she also has a sister named Kris who s fresh out of the police academy. Ratings held steady enough with Ladd, but dwindled when other new Angels started to rotate in during the final seasons, including Shelly Hack replacing Kate Jackson, and then Tanya Roberts replacing Hack.13. Beauty and the Beast (Photo by ©Paramount/Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Catherine (Linda Hamilton, pictured)The Replacement: Diana (Jo Anderson)The Reason: Hamilton left the series, which ran from 1987 to 1990, when she was pregnant.The Explanation: Catherine was killed, leaving her love, Vincent (Ron Perlman), heartbroken. Diana offered a potential new love interest, but many fans felt the magic left with Hamilton. Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin wrote for the show and told THR, You can’t do two seasons of telling the world, This is a love story for the ages, this is Romeo and Juliet, and then suddenly third seasons say, Juliet? Forget Juliet. It’s Romeo and Harriet.' 12. THE HOGAN FAMILY(Photo by ©Lorimar/Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Valerie Hogan (Valerie Harper, pictured)The Replacement: Sandy Hogan (Sandy Duncan)The Reason: Wrongful termination, as Harper was vindicated in court.The Explanation: You would think star Valerie Harper would be safe playing Valerie Hogan on a show called Valerie, but Valerie Hogan died in an automobile accident. Michael Hogan’s (Josh Taylor) sister Sandy came to live with Valerie’s Family, later renamed (again) The Hogan Family.At the time, Duncan told UPI she didn’t know there was any controversy: “The story I got before I agreed to do the show was that Valerie had left the series. Valerie and I have known each other for years. And while we were never friends, we were friendly. And I m relieved to know she has told people the dispute is not my problem. I refuse to be on the hot seat.”Despite Harper’s victory, the show lasted four more seasons, including one on CBS, without her.11. M*A*S*H (Photo by ©20thCentFox/Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Henry Blake (McLean Stevenson)The Replacement: Sherman Potter (Harry Morgan, pictured)The Reason: NBC promised Stevenson more money, but subsequent shows bombed and Stevenson regretted leaving M*A*S*H after just three seasons.The Explanation: Blake was tragically shot down while returning home. Sherman Potter joined the M.A.S.H. unit for the rest of its eight seasons, and its spinoff AfterMASH. Morgan had impressed the producers when he guest-starred as a different character in the third season premiere.10. Three's Company (Photo by Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Chrissy Snow (Suzanne Somers, pictured)The Replacement: Cindy Snow (Jenilee Harrison)The Reason: Somers got fired for asking for pay equal to John Ritter in the fifth season.The Explanation: Chrissy also had a sister we’d never met before. The show went on for eight total seasons and a spinoff, Three’s a Crowd.9. Spin City 67%Outgoing Character: Mike Flaherty (Michael J. Fox)The Replacement: Charlie Crawford (Charlie Sheen)The Reason: Fox’s real-life battle with Parkinson’s.The Explanation: Mike became an environmental lobbyist for senator Alex P. Keaton (if only we’d gotten a scene of them together!), and Mayor Winston (Barry Bostwick) got a new deputy, Charlie Crawford (Sheen). Sheen earned the show a younger audience, according to The New York Times. Sheen told the paper, “I’m just glad people are responding. I can’t comment on what they’re responding to.” Spin City went two more seasons and Fox returned as a guest star.8. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit 78%(Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Det. Elliot Stabler (Meloni, pictured)The Replacement: Det. Nick Amaro (Pino)The Reason: Meloni and NBC couldn’t come to terms on a new contract.The Explanation: Stabler retired, so Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) needed a new partner. Nick Amaro was that partner, and stayed on the job for four seasons. SVU has made it to 20 seasons, matching the original Law Order.7. Law & Order (Photo by NBC)Outgoing Character: DA Benjamin Stone (Michael Moriarty)The Replacement: DA Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston, pictured)The Reason: Moriarty claimed he was forced out for speaking out against a meeting Janet Reno had with NBC, believing the Attorney General would impose restrictive laws on television.The Explanation: Stone resigned and McCoy took over. Now it’s hard to imagine the show without Sam Waterston as DA Jack McCoy, and he’s who you’re most likely to see in a syndicated rerun. In 1995, Waterston was on speaking terms with Moriarty. “I have nothing to say about his reasons for leaving,” Waterston told The New York Times. “But I’ve talked to him since, and I think we’re OK.”6. 8 Simple Rules 58%(Photo by Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Paul Hennessy (Ritter, pictured)The Replacements: Jim Egan (James Garner) and C.J. Barnes (David Spade)The Reason: Ritter’s sudden death at the age of 54.The Explanation: In the aftermath of Ritter s (and his character s) death, the show added Garner as widow Cate s (Katey Sagal) father, and then Spade as her nephew who came to live with them. The show completed three seasons with the new cast.5. ER (Photo by ©NBC/Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Doug Ross (George Clooney, pictured)The Replacement: Luka Kovac (Goran Visnjic)The Reason: Clooney fulfilled his five-year contract with ER, even as he ascended to movie stardom.The Explanation: Ross moved to Seattle after a dispute over being caught helping a mother euthanize her terminal son. The next year, Luka Kovac joined the E.R. an attending physician. Luka even dated Ross love, Nurse Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) until the two reunited (with a surprise Clooney cameo) when Margulies left the show too. The series ran for 10 more years, ending after its 15th season (during which Clooney and several other cast members returned).4. NYPD Blue 83%(Photo by ©20thCentFox/Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Det. John Kelley (David Caruso)The Replacement: Det. Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits, pictured right)The Reason: Caruso got a taste of the movie business and asked for a raise that NYPD Blue brass didn t agree to — especially after only one season.The Explanation: Internal Affairs pushed Kelly off the force, and Simone became Sipowicz s (Dennis Franz) new partner. Eventually, Rick Schroder joined the cast as well. Once Caruso was on CSI: Miami, he admitted he made a mistake leaving NPYD Blue.The modest Smits wouldn’t take credit for the ratings bump after he joined the show. “I don’t think I solely am responsible for that,” Smits told SF Gate in 1995. “But the people at the network are happy.”3. The X-Files 74%(Photo by Shane Harvey/FOX)Outgoing Character: Fox Mulder (David Duchovny, pictured)The Replacement: John Doggett (Robert Patrick)The Reason: Duchovny’s contract was up after seven years, and he was also suing Fox for syndication earnings. He would later return full-time in the 10th season.The Explanation: Mulder got abducted by aliens, of course. Agent Doggett became Scully s (Gillian Anderson) new partner, but without the seven years of rapport and back story, Patrick s Dogett just didn t have the same spark. Some critics, however, are reconsidering his seasons.In 2017, Patrick told People TV he knew the fans weren’t interested in him at first, but “we won ’em over and we got two seasons out of it.” It worked out for X-Files fans, though: Duchovny and Anderson starred in two feature films and then two additional seasons over a decade later.2. Two and a Half Men 65%(Photo by CBS)Outgoing Character: Charlie Harper (Sheen)The Replacement: Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher, pictured)The Reason: Sheen’s public meltdown and lashing out against creator Chuck Lorre.The Explanation: Charlie was murdered by an ex, and the heartbroken billionaire Walden Schmidt took over his share of the rent. Kutcher said after his arrival that he drew a younger and more international audience to the show.“The demos for the show have actually started to skew a little bit younger,” Kutcher said in 2012 after half a season. “I can see a reflection of that on on the social media surfaces. You can actually see the international markets that are going to pop with the show. I think we just opened in Germany this week, and it was double.”Even Angus T. Jones (the titular half-man) left the show for a while after disparaging it publicly. Two and a Half Men was always critic-proof, so it lasted four more years with Walden Schmidt.1. Cheers 87%(Photo by ©Paramount Television/Courtesy Everett Collection)Outgoing Character: Diane Chambers (Shelley Long, pictured left)The Replacement: Rebecca Howe (Kirstie Alley, pictured right)The Reason: Long wanted to pursue a movie career and left after five seasons.The Explanation: When Diane left Sam Malone (Ted Danson) before their wedding, he sold the bar to a corporation that put Rebecca Howe in charge, making her Sam’s new romantic foil. It worked. Cheers ran for 11 years total and Alley is arguably even more closely identified with it than Long. The show previously had to fill a void when Nicholas Colosanto died during the third season, which is when Woody Harrelson joined the series.Did we leave out your favorite replacement?

With John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum unleashed into theaters last week– and currently sitting pretty, and bloody, at 88% on the Tomatometer, with John Wick: Chapter 4 just announced – we wanted to know which action movie franchises have the highest Tomatometer averages ever. So, we did a deep Tomatometer dive into over 80 action franchises and found 12 Fresh series that punched, kicked, and sprinted their way ahead of the pack.Since John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum is the third film in the Wick saga, we decided to focus on action franchises with at least three Tomatometer-rated films that told a continuous story. We split up the Spider-Man, Planet of the Apes, James Bond, and Batman franchises into chunks, as they had multiple directors, reboots, and often happened in different universes. For example, we looked at the Sean Connery Bond films as a separate entity from the Daniel Craig Bond films, and the Christopher Nolan Batman films as separate from the 1980s and 90s movies; we did however include Fury Road with the original Mad Max trilogy, as it centers on the same Max – albeit played by a different actor – and is directed by George Miller. Also: sci-fi, fantasy, and animated films were out; superhero flicks were in.Basically, we were hoping for an eclectic list and we got one!Will Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy be ranked higher than Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones franchise? Can any action franchise defeat Miller’s Mad Max quartet? How in the hell is Mission Impossible not on this list?! (Sorry, blame the just Fresh first Mission Impossible, and the Rotten Mission Impossible 2.) Check out the list below and let us know which action franchises you love in the comments.12. Iron Man (2008 2013)(Photo by @ Paramount)Tomatometer Average: 81.7%Movies: Iron Man (2008) 94%, Iron Man 2 (2010) 72%, Iron Man 3 (2013) 79%Highest Rated Film: Iron Man (2008) 94%Lowest Rated Film: Iron Man 2 (2010) 72%In 2008, the Jon Favreau-directed Iron Man became a smash hit that was beloved by critics and audiences alike. The 93% Tomatometer-rated film featured Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, a “genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist” who becomes the superhero Iron Man, and it kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, it s significant. Less significant, though still very well regarded, are the movie s two Certified Fresh follow-ups: Iron Man 2, also directed by Favreau, and Shane Black s Iron Man 3. The sequels couldn’t recapture the Tomatometer heights of the first film, but they were box office blockbusters – Iron Man 3 is the seventh highest-grossing MCU movie, just behind Captain Marvel – with high enough Tomatometer scores to land the franchise at the 12th spot on our list.11. Spider-Man (2002 2007)Tomatometer Average: 82%Movies: Spider-Man (2002) 90%, Spider-Man 2 (2004) 93%, Spider-Man 3 (2007) 63%Highest Rated Film: Spider-Man 2 (2004) 93%Lowest Rated film: Spider-Man 3 (2007) 63%With all the superhero films that have been released since 2002, it’s easy to forget how popular Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy was in the 2000s. In 2002, the 90% Tomatometer-rated Spider-Man was a massive success that cleared 0 million in its opening weekend (which was huge at the time) and introduced us to Tobey Maguire’s amazingly earnest take on the popular web-slinger. It was followed up by the 93% Tomatometer-rated Spider-Man 2, which is one of the most critically beloved sequels of all time. The franchise took a bit of dip in 2007, with Spider-Man 3 – OK, a bit might be understating it. However, its Fresh score of 63% was just enough to ensure its placement in this list. Cue dancing Emo Spidey!10. Jackie Chan’s Police Story (1985 1996)(Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)Tomatometer Average: 84.5%Movies: Police Story (1985) 93%, Jackie Chan's Police Story 2 (1988) 83%, Supercop (1992) 96%, Jackie Chan's First Strike (1996) 57%Highest Rated Film: Supercop (1992) 96%Lowest Rated Film:Jackie Chan's First Strike (1996) 57%An action movie list without a Jackie Chan film wouldn’t feel right. Kicking off in 1985, Chan directed Police Story, which introduced the world to Sergeant Chan Ka-Kui (Chan), an incredibly likable and athletic cop who engages in the greatest shopping mall fight ever. The acclaimed Police Story 2 (92% on the Tomatometer) was also a huge success and featured the greatest playground fight ever (are you sensing a trend?). Basically, the four core Police Story movies starring Jackie Chan feature all-time great action scenes – made great because of the brilliance of Chan and his commitment to hurting himself to entertain audiences. (Note, while Supercop was released in 1992, it didn t get a theatrical release in the U.S. until 1996.)9. Sean Connery Bond Films (1962 1971)Tomatometer Average: 85.3%Movies: Dr. No (1962) 95%, From Russia With Love (1963) 95%, Goldfinger (1964) 99%, Thunderball (1965) 87%, You Only Live Twice (1967) 73%, Diamonds Are Forever (1971) 64%Highest Rated Film: Goldfinger (1964) 99%Lowest Rated Film: Diamonds Are Forever (1971) 64%Bond. Sean Connery’s James Bond. The action world was changed forever when Dr. No was released in 1962. The movie, Certified Fresh at 96%, was an adaptation of Ian Fleming’s spy novel and the first to feature Sean Connery as the smooth-talking badass who traveled the world, killed with ease, and wooed way too many women. Peaking with the classic 97% Tomatometer-rated Goldfinger, Connery s six Bond films set a new standard for action in the 1960s, shooting on location around the world and featuring a “hero” who had a literal license to kill.8. Ip Man (2010 2016)(Photo by © Well Go USA / courtesy Everett Collection)Tomatometer Average: 86.3%Movies: Ip Man (2008) 86%, Yip Man 2 (2010) 97%, Ip Man 3 (2015) 76%Highest Rated: Yip Man 2 (2010) 97%Lowest Rated: Ip Man 3 (2015) 76%Many non-action film fans may only know Ip Man star Donnie Yen from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, or Blade 2. However, Yen is an action icon who has been hurting onscreen henchmen since the early 1990s. That’s why it’s awesome to include on this list the Wilson Yip-directed Ip Man franchise, which tells the story of Ip Man, the famous martial artist who mentored Bruce Lee and is considered the grandfather of the Kung Fu hybrid Wing Chun. The trilogy of films have allowed Yen to engage in some truly wicked brawls that showcase his martial arts prowess and ability to learn an insane amount of fight choreography. (Note, we are not including this year s, Master Z: Ip Man legacy, as it does not feature Yen and is a spin-off set in the same universe rather than directly part of the series.)7. Indiana Jones (1981 2008)Tomatometer Average: 86.5%Movies: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) 95%, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) 84%, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) 88%, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) 78%Highest Rated: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) 95%Lowest Rated: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) 78%We know many people think Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the fourth entry in the Indiana Jones franchise, nuked the goodwill of the original trilogy. However, its Certified Fresh 78% Tomatometer score got the franchise to swing into the top 10 where it deserves to be — so it’s not all bad. Harrison Ford’s portrayal of the archaeologist who spends his days teaching college students and weekends globetrotting to deadly locations in hunt of ancient artifacts, still feels fresh and full of charm. It also helps that Steven Spielberg directed all four movies and loaded them with action-packed set pieces, memorable characters, and some very twisted moments – yes, this is a family flick featuring hearts being pulled from people’s chests.6. The Avengers (2012 2019)Tomatometer Average: 86.5%Movies: Marvel's the Avengers (2012) 91%, Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) 76%, Avengers: Infinity War (2018) 85%, Avengers: Endgame (2019) 94%Highest Rated: Avengers: Endgame (2019) 94%Lowest Rated: Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) 76%The Avengers franchise made the pointy end of the list because of the two critically beloved blockbusters that bookend the franchise. Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers, 92% on the Tomatometer, was a massive blockbuster that proved a movie featuring the Marvel Cinematic Universe s mightiest heroes could be funny, surprising, and most importantly, capable of giving every superhero a moment to shine (except for the zombie Hawkeye thing). Most recently, the Russos-directed Avengers: Endgame pulled off an equally impressive feat by giving what feels like 7,000 characters something to do in a narrative that makes logical sense. And it s the highest-rated movie in the franchise, Certified Fresh at 95%.5. Captain America (2011 2016)(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)Tomatometer Average: 87%Movies: Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) 80%, Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) 90%, Captain America: Civil War (2016) 90%Highest Rated: Captain America: Civil War (2016) 90%Lowest Rated: Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) 80%The Captain America franchise kicked off in 2012 with the Certified Fresh Captain America: The First Avenger, 80% on the Tomatometer. The Joe Johnston-directed superhero origin story struck a chord with audiences who loved its nostalgic vibe – Johnston directed The Rocketeer and it showed – and lead performance by Chris Evans. But, it wasn’t until 2014 that the Russo brothers’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier (90% on the Tomatometer) propelled the franchise into the critical elite. The Russos struck gold again in 2016 with the Captain America: Civil War; its Tomatometer score of 91% makes Captain America the only superhero franchise to have its Tomatometer score improve with each installment.4. John Wick (2014 2019)Tomatometer Average: 88%Movies: John Wick (2014) 86%, John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) 89%, John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum (2019) 89%Highest Rated: John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) 89%Lowest Rated: John Wick (2014) 86%Much like the immortal Keanu Reeves, the John Wick franchise keeps getting better with age. Kicking off in 2014, the 86% Tomatometer-rated John Wick introduced the world to an unstoppable assassin who wiped out hundreds of well-groomed henchman in his quest to get revenge on the people who killed his adorable puppy. His quest for revenge lead him to the 89% and 88%-Tomatometer rated John Wick: Chapter 2 and John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum, which also feature him killing hundreds of well-groomed henchman and assassins who want him dead. Guided by director Chad Stahelski (and co-director David Leitch for the first film), the trilogy has remained incredibly consistent, and we’re hoping the duo of Stahelski and Reeves keeps up the high-scoring work when Chapter 4 is released in 2021.3. Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011 2017)(Photo by © 20th Century Fox Film Corp. )Tomatometer Average: 88.3%Movies: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) 82%, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) 90%, War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) 94%Highest Rated: War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) 94%Lowest Rated: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) 82%OK, so we re bending the no sci-fi rule here a touch, given the technology to enhance apes intelligence doesn t yet exist. But, aside from that, this series is kept relatively grounded (or, at least, tree-bound). Director Rupert Wyatt kicked off the Apes reboot trilogy with Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), which set up the heroic journey of Caesar (another incredible performance-capture performance from Andy Serkis). The successful prequel/reboot was followed up by the even more successful Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (90%) and War for the Planet of the Apes (93%), which continued Caesar s story, and gave thousands of visual effects artists plenty of work. Matt Reeves directed the two later films, and his insistence of shooting at actual locations, instead of sound stages, made the films look authentic, real, and dangerous. Between the large battles, incredible CGI and committed performances, this trilogy was an inventive, action-packed surprise.2. The Dark Knight (2005 2012)Tomatometer Average: 88.3%Movies: Batman Begins (2005) 84%, The Dark Knight (2008) 94%, The Dark Knight Rises (2012) 87%Highest Rated: The Dark Knight (2008) 94%Lowest Rated: Batman Begins (2005) 84%*The Dark Knight Trilogy and the Rise of the Planet of the Apes Trilogy both have 88.3% Tomatometer averages. The Dark Knight Trilogy has a higher ranking because it has more reviews (967 897).Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy is the highest Tomatometer-rated superhero franchise ever – impressive, considering expectations were low for 2005’s Batman Begins after Batman Robin put a freeze on the franchise in 1997. However, DC fans and audiences soon learned that Nolan was the right person to guide Batman through three films that took on a grittier tone, featured beautiful cinematography, and gave the world an all-time-great performance by Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight. Ledger’s portrayal won him a posthumous Academy Award in 2009 and helped people realize that superhero movies could also be taken ‘so serious.’1.
