bob游戏官方网站采用百度引擎1（Baidu 0）This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Tenet, and Tom Cruise s Space Project.This WEEK S TOP STORYSONIC THE HEDGEHOG (AND PROBABLY TAILS, TOO) TO RETURN IN 2022(Photo by Paramount Pictures)We may have had to wait a few more months (from 11/15/2019 to 2/14/2020) for the character design to be redone on Sonic the Hedgehog (Fresh at 63%), but Paramount is apparently attempting to avoid too much of a wait for Sonic the Hedgehog 2. The studio has announced a release date of April 8, 2020 for the sequel, or just two years and two months after the first film, and that s even after they already factored in the various delays right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The sequel does not have a premise yet, but the ending of Sonic the Hedgehog teased both the debut of Tails the fox, but also the villainous return of Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik (now looking even more like his video game character). Director Jeff Fowler will return for the sequel, working from a screenplay by Pat Casey and Josh Miller, who also both worked on the first film. Ben Schwartz is also expected to return as the voice of Sonic, and he may also again be joined by James Marsden and Tika Sumpter (though neither is confirmed yet). Release dates are obviously changing all the time, but other movies scheduled within a month of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 include Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (3/25/2022), The Matrix 4 (4/1/2022), and Black Panther II (5/6/2022).Other Top Headlines1. PIXAR TRAVELS TO ITALY IN 2021 FOR THE SEA MONSTER ADVENTURE LUCA (Photo by Disney/Pixar)Movie studios are increasingly planting untitled films on the release calendar these days, especially when the title in question is a new property and not a sequel, prequel, or remake. So, we ve actually known for a while that Disney and Pixar were planning on releasing something next summer on June 18, 2021; we just didn t know anything else beyond that. Normally, Disney and Pixar might have made a big announcement at San Diego Comic-Con, but that, of course, ended up being replaced by last week s Comic-Con@Home, which had some big panels, but not as many as usual. Instead, we learned through other means (in this case, Collider) that Pixar s next movie after Soul (11/20/2020) will be a fantasy adventure set in Italy called Luca. We also have this fairly lengthy premise: Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface. Some writers are already comparing Luca to both Call Me By Your Name (thanks to the setting) and Guillermo del Toro s The Shape of Water.2. JORDAN PEELE TEAMS UP WITH ISSA RAE FOR SCI-FI HORROR SINKHOLE (Photo by Priscilla Grant, MJP/Everett Collection)Ever since his breakout success in 2017 with Get Out (Certified Fresh at 98%), Jordan Peele has worn several hats (director, producer, and host) on a variety of horror, thriller, or related genre movies and shows, including Us (Certified Fresh at 93%), CBS All Access s The Twilight Zone, HBO s upcoming series Lovecraft Country, and this fall s reboot of Candyman. We can now add another project to his upcoming filmography, as he will be producing a sci-fi horror film for Universal Pictures called Sinkhole, in which Issa Rae (The Lovebirds, HBO s Insecure) will star. The premise revolves around a strange pit that appears in the backyard of what otherwise seems like a perfect home, with the added information that the original short story started as a writers group project with the theme, I married a monster, and that the story will explore themes of female identity and perfection. 3. AMY ADAMS BIZARRE WERE-DOG DRAMA NIGHTBITCH (Photo by Jef Hernandez/Everett Collection)Plenty of werewolf movies have been made since the 1920s, and along the way, the concept has certainly veered into comedy, such as with Jon Landis An American Werewolf in London, Michael J. Fox s Teen Wolf, and, one could reasonably argue, with Disney s Shaggy D.A. franchise. Now, werewolves are frequently men, but Amy Adams is now attached to star in a film called Nightbitch which will team her up with the Annapurna production company, with which she has worked four times before (The Master, American Hustle, Her, and Vice). Nightbitch, which is not technically a werewolf movie, will star Adams as a former artist who is thrust into stay-at-home domesticity after the birth of her son, who becomes increasingly worried that she may be turning into a dog. (Some versions of this story suggest it is actually the baby that is turning into a dog, but the official premise of the source novel, which comes out next summer, is pretty clear.)4. CHRISTOPHER NOLAN S TENET CHANGES RELEASE STRATEGY AGAIN(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/©Warner Bros.)As the COVID-19 pandemic continues in the USA, movie theaters remain unsure about when they will be able to fully reopen. Last Friday, we heard that Warner Bros. was considering opening Tenet internationally first and then in the United States at a later point. That plan was confirmed on Monday when the studio released a press release that the film will be released in over 70 countries on August 26, 2020 before opening in the United States a week later, just in time for Labor Day weekend, but only in select cities. What s unclear is whether that Labor Day release will also then lead to a wider release for Tenet, or if it will end up adding something like a VOD release in lieu of a wide release (which may not be fully possible in September if not enough theaters are open in the USA by then). Of course, this also means that American movie fans will have to endure at least a week of possible social media spoilers during which the rest of the world understands exactly what Tenet is about.5. TOM CRUISE S SPACE PROJECT GETS 0 MILLION BUDGET AND MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE HELP (Photo by ©Universal Pictures)It probably was inevitable that someone would eventually want to make a big budget movie in outer space, but the when felt further away until recently. And if any movie star was going to attempt it (and do most of his own stunts), it was also probably obvious that it would be Tom Cruise. Just two months after we first found out about Cruise s plans to film a movie in outer space, the news broke this week that a deal has been made with Universal Pictures to fund the project with an atmospheric budget of over 0 million. It had already been known that the film will be directed by Doug Liman (who worked with Cruise on Edge of Tomorrow, Certified Fresh at 91%), but another name that has joined the production is Christopher McQuarrie, Tom Cruise s recent Mission: Impossible director (who s preparing to film movies #7 and #8 soon). McQuarrie will serve as one of the film s producers, and also contribute story ideas (a credit just shy of actually writing the screenplay). In related news, Top Gun: Maverick recently became just one of the many movies to have its 2020 release date delayed until next year (7/2/2021), which is almost two years after its original release date (July 12, 2019).6. BUZZFEED GETTING INTO MOVIES #14 WILL SURPRISE YOU!(Photo by Nicholas Kamm/Getty Images)In the 2000s, the popular news satire website The Onion announced that they would be getting into the movie business, but all we got was the little-seen 2008 project The Onion Movie. In that same spirit, Buzzfeed is now apparently hoping to have better success with a cinematic endeavor, as they are now partnering with Lionsgate for a theatrical film slate. Although we haven t gotten any specific examples of what a Buzzfeed movie might be exactly (documentary? drama? comedy? collection of cat videos?), the press release did say that the movies will be aimed at millennial and Gen Z audiences, so if you re over the age of 40 or so, these movies apparently won t be for you. Lionsgate and Buzzfeed expect to launch their first co-production sometime in 2021.7. COURTENEY COX WILL BE THERE FOR YOU (AGAIN), SCREAM 5 FANS(Photo by Dimension Films courtesy Everett Collection)When Neve Campbell was first announced in May to be in talks to return to the Scream franchise for Scream 5, this column predicted that we would soon hear about a few other returning cast members as well. That hunch was confirmed soon after with the news that David Arquette was returning as Deputy Dewey Riley, but it took another two months for Courteney Cox to be announced as returning as Gale Weathers. Scream 5 will be directed by the team of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (A.K.A. Radio Silence), who are currently best known for last summer s horror comedy Ready or Not (Certified Fresh at 88%). So far, no new cast members have been announced, but presumably, that will soon change, and at this point, it s all but expected that Neve Campbell s return will be officially announced in the near future.8. SETH ROGEN PRODUCING PROJECT ABOUT SECRET HOLLYWOOD HUSTLER (Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)It s not uncommon for directors, writers, or actors who first became famous for broad comedies to stretch out into more serious films. Recent examples of this include: Adam McKay (who went from Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy to The Big Short); Jay Roach (from Austin Powers to Recount and Game Change); and Peter Farrelly (from Dumb and Dumber to Green Book). Someone else who appears to be heading down a similar track is Seth Rogen, who is obviously best known for stoner comedies like Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, and This is the End. Rogen and his producing partner Evan Goldberg are partnering with director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name) for an adaptation of the 2017 documentary Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood (Certified Fresh at 86%). Guadagnino will direct the adaptation about the life of Scotty Bowers, a former U.S. Marine who had a second career during the golden age of Hollywood as a pimp and hustler for many within the secret world of the studios and actors, frequently using a Hollywood gas station as a cover location. Details of Scotty Bowers life also inspired the Netflix series Hollywood. It s not yet known who will star in this film, but one has to guess that two possible candidates might be Channing Tatum (a friend of Seth Rogen) or Armie Hammer (who starred in Guadagnino s Call Me By Your Name).9. FAMOUS ACTORS TO PERFORM INTO THEIR SMART PHONES FOR WITHIN/IN (Photo by NurPhoto/Getty Images)Before 2020, most of us had presumably gotten pretty used to slick filmmaking and TV production styles, and then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and many TV shows essentially became very well publicized Zoom calls. It was probably inevitable, therefore, that there would eventually be a movie that was filmed in that style. Although Michael Bay is also producing a pandemic thriller called Songbird that may also look like it was filmed by the actors, the movie that sounds closest to that theme is called Within/In. The project is described as a made-at-home anthology film revolving around themes of confinement and isolation. Within/In will feature several established actors, including Julianne Moore, Don Cheadle, Chris Cooper, Rebecca Hall, Sanaa Lathan, Emily Mortimer, Alessandro Nivola, Rosie Perez, and Debra Winger. Since it s an anthology film, we can expect there to be several individual stories, but since it s also made at home, most of the actors also won t appear onscreen together (at least not physically). Many of the actors (including Chris Cooper and Griffin Dunne) will also be taking directing credits as they re basically directing themselves.
After finishing up a successful stint on SNL in 1995, Adam Sandler launched head first into a movie career that is still going strong in its third decade. One of the earliest entries in the Sandler catalog is the golf comedy Happy Gilmore, about a wannabe hockey player who finds unexpected success as a professional golfer. And even though it s just one in a long line of fish-out-of-water comedies that define the early part of Sandler’s big-screen career, the film ultimately changed the face of sports movies or at the very least, the sport of golf and has attracted a legion of fans unlike any of this other comedies.From the unforgettable lines and oft-imitated golf swing to the Mandalorian connection and the introduction of Bob Barker to a new generation, Happy Gilmore remains as relevant as ever. Throw in a soundtrack that seamlessly blends a variety of artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd, House of Pain, Kansas, and of course Diana Ross and Lionel Richie, and then tack on a Star Wars-inspired ending with spirits appearing the sky, and you’ve got yourself one iconic offering.So go to your happy place, because in honor of the 25th anniversary of Happy Gilmore, we’re breaking down five reasons why this is Adam Sandler’s best movie. Ever.It Holds Rarified Status as a Fresh Adam Sandler Comedy(Photo by ©Universal Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)To say Happy Gilmore is Sandler’s first Fresh movie isn’t saying much, considering he was just getting started in the film world after SNL. And even though he has given us a few gems lately pun intended Happy Gilmore actually remains just one of a handful of Fresh films over his entire career. When it comes to comedies, Sandler cranked out more in his first 20 years than a first grade Billy Madison can even count, but Happy is joined by only The Wedding Singer, Punch-Drunk Love, and Funny People in the Fresh comedy category, and it s debatable whether the latter two are even comedies in the first place.It Is Ridiculously QuotableOne sign of a strong and long-lasting comedy is that a bunch of the jokes live on in popular culture for many years. And while Sandler’s Billy Madison brought plenty in 1995, especially when you’re debating the positive attributes of shampoo and conditioner, Happy Gilmore took it to a whole new level the next year. Whether it’s on the golf course, somewhere else in the world of sports, or in our every day lives, the film has earned a gold jacket in quotable lines.“Gold jacket, green jacket, who gives a s t?”“I eat pieces of s t like you for breakfast.” “You eat pieces of s t for breakfast?”“The price is wrong, bitch.”“That s your home! Are you too good for your home?”“How am I supposed to chip with that going on, Doug?”“You can trouble me for a warm glass of shut-the-hell-up. ”“Somebody’s closer.”It Changed the Way People Enjoy GolfThere is no denying that Happy Gilmore, along with the emergence of some guy named Tiger, drove golf into the mainstream in the late 90s. And while other classic golf films like Caddyshack and Tin Cup have contributed some pretty notable entries to golf culture, no other golf movie has influenced the game quite like Happy and his unorthodox 400-yard golf swing. In a sport where people are still very much enamored by the long ball, the Happy swing remains one of the most attempted moves on a golf course by people of all skill levels. Sure, it’s mostly done for laughs, but you never know when you might really connect with one. Which is why everyone from kids to adults and pros to hackers love to give it their best shot – running start and all.Some of the celebratory moves that are teed up throughout Happy Gilmore continue to live on in the world of golf as well. Happy riding his golf club like a horse was famously reprised by PGA Tour pro Boo Weekley during the 2008 Ryder Cup. Shooter McGavin (Christopher McDonald) shooting his ball into the hole with his finger gun is a move all true golfers strive to perfect.And let’s be honest: if you’re not incorporating Chubbs’ (Carl Weathers) “it’s all in the hips” move when teaching your buddy the basics of the golf swing, you’re doing it wrong.The Supporting Cast Is OutstandingSpeaking of Weathers, who is currently enjoying a career resurgence in a galaxy far far away with The Mandalorian, he headlines a talented and memorable supporting cast in Happy Gilmore. Known partly for Predator at the time in which his arms are unceremoniously shot off the veteran actor provides plenty of laughs in Happy, complete with one of his arms having been replaced by a hilariously too long and easily damaged wooden hand.Julie Bowen plays Happy’s love interest, Virgina Venit, in what was one of her first film roles. She has, of course, gone on to win multiple Emmys for her role on Modern Family, but her totally- 90s hair and girl next door charm in Happy Gilmore is a nice reminder of her earlier work. You’re welcome for the points at your next trivia night.There are also a few great cameos from people like Ben Stiller, whose nursing home orderly character will forever instill fear into the hearts of the elderly. And who can forget Kevin Nealon “feeling the flow” as a pro golfer, and longtime Price is Right host Bob Barker with his mean left hook? Speaking of which It Features a Fight Scene That Defined a GenerationCould we have kept Barker’s fight scene with Sandler in the supporting cast section of this article? Probably. But this is more than just a fight scene. It’s the fight scene. Not only did it take home the first ever Best Fight award at the 1996 MTV Movie Awards, but it also introduced and endeared Barker to a whole new generation of fans, as ratings for The Price Is Right were reportedly on the rise with college kids after the film’s release. And the legend only grows with stories from set about how Barker wanted to do his own fighting stunts, and how he would only do the role if he won the fight.And now, to quote the man himself as he delivers a beat down to Happy, “I think you’ve had enough.”Happy Gilmore was released in theaters on February 16, 1996.On an Apple device?

American Gods executive producer–author promises transcendent season 2, Outlander season 5 update, Starz introduces racy new millennial sex comedy, the Crawleys get supersized in Downton Abbey movie, and more.TOP STORYCaitriona Balfe s Claire Fraser Will Have a New Role in Outlander Season 5(Photo by Starz)Caitriona Balfe is just weeks away from filming season 5 of Outlander. Since season 4 used elements from the fourth and fifth books in the series, it sounds like season 5 will already hit book six, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, which leads up to 1776 in North Carolina — quite a significant year in American history. Before heading off to film, Balfe told Rotten Tomatoes a few more details about about Claire Fraser s journey in the new season.“Last season, her doctor side in some ways is put to one side,” Balfe said. “We got to see little glimpses of it. I think now that they’re going to settled in Fraser’s Ridge, it’s a real opportunity to establish herself in getting that kind of professional side of her life back in an order that is very fulfilling for her. So I think that’s exciting too.”The Fraser clan is growing in season 5 as Brianna (Sophie Skelton) has a baby whose health complications may require a return to the present for medical care.“[Claire s] a grandmother this season, which I think is a really interesting time in a woman’s life,” Balfe said. “It’s great to be able to explore that and have an extended family be around and also to deepen this marriage and this relationship in new ways because their life now is very new. This is a new role they’re taking on. It’s a new place and they’ve settled into this new community so I think it’s really interesting.”The season will cover a fraught time for both the country and the Fraser family, as Claire and her beloved, Jamie (Sam Heughan), are on the front lines of the birth of America as well as their grandchild.“I think there’s a lot of interesting things that we’re going to get to explore in terms of family, in terms of loyalties, especially in politics,” Balfe said. “It’s very new to me, all of this kind of time in American history. To understand the intricacies of what was going on in America in that time during its infancy, the people that were coming into the country, who their allegiances lay with. It’s all really interesting stuff, and it’s very new so that makes it really exciting.”Despite Behind-the-Scenes Drama, American Gods Season 2 Feels Like the Same Show The drama behind the scenes of Starz s American Gods has been well-documented — original showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green departed after writing about half the scripts for season 2, with Jesse Alexander appointed as new showrunner two months later — but creator (and book author) Neil Gaiman told reporters that viewers shouldn t notice any difference in quality between the two seasons. I was on the show before Bryan and Michael came on as showrunners; I got to watch that being made, he said. I got to watch them leave and Jesse come on and take season 2. From my perspective, the thing that has been made as season 2 feels like the same show that we had for season 1. Part of that is because we have amazing actors, part of that is because a lot of the people didn t change.(Photo by Starz) It still looks and feels like American Gods, he continued. It s definitely taken a while to get season 2 out, but it takes a while to get good things made and I think we d all rather have it good than have it quicker — although we d rather have it quicker too. The Crawleys Turn Volume to 11 on Downton Abbey Movie(Photo by Nick Briggs/Carnival Film & Television Limited 2014)The Downton Abbey movie hits theaters on September 20, and its stars are still keeping as frustratingly tight-lipped as ever when it comes to discussing the upcoming film. I don t even know what I can tell you, star Laura Carmichael (a.k.a. Edith Crawley) told USA Today and a small group of reporters on Tuesday. What can I remember has been released? There’s some new exciting people, which was dreamy. New cast members which you’ll love and enjoy. Unfortunately, that s just about all Carmichael, who next stars in Starz s drama The Spanish Princess, could say about what happens, though she did reveal that she thinks everyone will be pleased that we’ve upped the ante. Turned the volume up. Whether it s the end of the road for the Crawleys and their staff is something only creator Julian Fellowes can address. I can’t speak for other people, Carmichael said. But I can say we all had a dreamy time, it was lush. SpongeBob SquarePants Turns 20SpongeBob SquarePants celebrates its 20th birthday this summer. Like other beloved animated series (including The Simpsons and Family Guy), the series has managed to remain in the zeitgeist for multiple decades (though SpongeBob is a show both kids and adults can enjoy together). How, exactly, has the Nickelodeon series managed to remain so topical? Man, that’s the million-dollar question, said Bill Fagerbakke, who voices SpongeBob s pal Patrick Star. I don’t know if there’s a formula. There’s something mercurial and enigmatic about it. And I’ve come to think it’s a magical combination of shapes, colors, and sounds. We don’t know! Rodger Bumpass, who voices SpongeBob s frenemy Squidward, likens the series to Looney Tunes. They’re both short cartoons, but different ages of people and viewers get different things. Little kids get something out of it cause it’s colorful and it’s animated. And then the little older guys get a little bit more stuff out of it, and adults get something out of it too. And funny is funny, so I think that’s one of the reasons it has struck a chord, Bumpass said.SpongeBob himself, a.k.a. Tom Kenny, thinks some of the magic of his character comes from the fact that everyone wants to root for him and he s avoided any type of controversy. SpongeBob really does seem to have this charmed life and this magic power where people, you know, they didn’t just like it a little bit. They started to really like it and love it, and it found its way into the fabric of people’s lives, and it kept finding new life in new ways like memes and things like that, Kenny said. And even on the couple of occasions where there’s been something a little controversial that’s happened, SpongeBob still winds up winning. SpongeBob still winds up on top. For example, the latest Super Bowl halftime show was a tad controversial, but people didn t take any umbrage with the fact that SpongeBob made an appearance.Said Kenny, People get mad at the NFL. They don’t get mad at SpongeBob. You know what I mean? They don’t hate on SpongeBob. They hate on Maroon 5. The Rook EP Explains Why British People Are Good at Spy DramasThe new Starz drama The Rook, based on the book of the same name by Daniel O Malley, is both a tense British spy thriller and a supernatural drama. When Myfanwy Thomas (Emma Greenwell) wakes up in the rain next to London s Millennium Bridge, she can t remember who she is or how she wound up next to a pile of dead bodies. But she soon learns that she s a high-ranking official in the Checquy, a secret organization involving people with paranormal abilities.The London-set series was run by two American showrunners, Lisa Zerling and Karyn Usher, though it stars a mostly British cast (save for Olivia Munn). British executive producer Stephen Garrett said the series works because his people are experts in the spy genre. The Rook denotes [Myfanwy s] rank in the organization, and clearly there are bishops and queens who are higher than her, but I think what drew us all to this is it s a spy show with supernatural elements. The great thing about spy shows, and why the British are good at them, [is because] we re naturally duplicitous, we re very good at lying, and we love secrets, Garrett joked. So if you re a spy you can t tell your friends or your loved ones what it is you do, and I think if you have supernatural powers, you can t tell your loved ones what it is you have. So you have secrets to the power of 10, and that s just a heady mix for a great drama. Maybe Don t Watch the Racy Now Apocalypse With Your Parents(Photo by Starz)Gregg Araki s new Starz drama, Now Apocalypse, is a sex-infused, surreal adventure about stoner twentysomethings navigating the dating world and Los Angeles in general. Ulysses (Avan Jogia) also starts having premonitory dreams, causing him to wonder if there s a dark conspiracy going on around him or he s just smoking too much weed.There s a lot of nudity and sex, but star Jogia told reporters that he thinks the show will attract a multi-generational audience. As he pointed out, the older generation, quote unquote, grew up during sex lib. But if you re thinking about watching the show with your parents, whether that s a good decision or not really depends on how sexually liberated you and your parents are. The show sounds very punk rock, and attuned toward sex and sexuality, Araki said. We have BDSM, and we have water sports, and we have a sex club and a sex orgy, and it s like Whoa, that show sounds nuts. But when I watched it for the first time, there s a real sweetness to it. And this is a testament to the best cast in the whole universe — they really imbue these characters with such vanity and such authenticity. The whole show is grounded in these characters. They re super-sweet and super lovable. It s really about these characters and what they re going through. It s a lot, he admitted — especially in a show he described as Girls, Sex and the City meets Twin Peaks with an alien — but he’s not including those moments for shock value. I m not interested in titillation or making porn, Araki said. It s really about those moments of character truth, and I think that s the strongest thing about the show. Dennis Quaid Heads to NetflixNetflix has added Dennis Quaid to its ever-expanding roster of talent. The veteran actor is set to star in a new comedy series from Everybody Loves Raymond writer Tucker Cawley called Merry Happy Whatever. The series, according to Netflix, takes place in the weeks around Christmas as a father is thrown for a loop when his youngest daughter comes home for Christmas with a new boyfriend.

2.64.3 0月喜迎Today s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Marvel s The Eternals, Ghostbusters, Scooby-Doo, and The Suicide Squad.This WEEK S TOP STORYIDRIS ELBA TO REPLACE WILL SMITH IN THE SUICIDE SQUAD(Photo by Michael Gibson/STX Entertainment)Last year, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn switched teams to join Warner Bros. and their DC Comics movies (following his forced departure from Disney and Marvel over controversial joke Tweets). WB hired Gunn to do something of a soft reboot on The Suicide Squad, and at first, it was reported that the second movie would feature an all-new team of supervillains. This week, we learned that detail is only partly true, as the characters of Harley Quinn and Deadshot will return, but the rest of the team will be new. Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn, but it won t be Will Smith we ll be seeing as Deadshot, as Idris Elba has signed on instead. Warner Bros. has scheduled The Suicide Squad for release on August 6, 2021, which will be one day over five years after the first Suicide Squad (8/5/2016). As for which DC Comics supervillains will be joining Deadshot and Harley Quinn in the sequel, Collider.com has what they report is the list. Reportedly, the new villains will include Ratcatcher (gender swapped as a woman), the eccentric Batman villain Polka Dot Man, Peacemaker (who was adapted as The Comedian in Alan Moore s Watchmen), and King Shark, who was a memorable character on TV s The Flash. As for what Will Smith will be doing with his free time in 2019 instead, he signed on this week to star in King Richard, which will tell the true story of tennis coach Richard Williams, the father of future tennis champions Serena and Venus Williams.Fresh Developments1. MARVEL S THE ETERNALS TO FEATURE FIRST LIVE-ACTION GAY LEAD SUPERHERO (BUT WHO?)(Photo by Marvel Comics)The last few years have seen a series of firsts in live action superhero movies: Wonder Woman, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel all represented important first steps (and the news of movies like Blue Beetle and Shang-Chi being developed represent others yet to come). As first reported by the ThatHashtagShow podcast, Marvel is now seeking a (preferably openly gay) actor aged 30-49 (of any ethnicity) who physically looks like a superhero for one of the leads in next year s The Eternals. The story seemed to be confirmed by Marvel production chief Victoria Alonso, who, when asked about it, replied, the world is ready. Marvel has not yet announced a release date for The Eternals, but it s probably the untitled project scheduled for November 6, 2020 (presuming Black Widow is the film scheduled for for May 1, 2020). As for which of The Eternals might be the gay character in question, of the three known leads, Ikaris would seem most likely, just by process of elimination (the other two confirmed leads being Sersi and the childlike Piper). Other possibilities include Makkari (based on Mercury), Thanos brother Starfox, and even Hercules (who s not one of the Eternals in the comics, but could be adapted that way for the MCU).2. GUILLERMO DEL TORO S SECRET ZANBATO ACTION MOVIE(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)A few months ago, Guillermo del Toro (Academy Award winner for The Shape of Water) revealed that he had over 15 screenplays written and ready to go. Included in that list was Secret Project (Untitled). Now, we still don t know for sure what that project is, but we did learn about a previously unknown film that has been in development for the past six years. The movie is called Zanbato, and although we re still missing many details, it s described as an action movie about a young girl (in the 10-15 year old range) with amazing fighting abilities like a ninja. Del Toro is attached not just to write but also to direct Zanbato for Paramount Pictures by way of J.J. Abrams Bad Robot as the production company. Meanwhile, del Toro is currently in pre-production on his adaptation of Pinocchio for Netflix.3. FINN WOLFHARD, CARRIE COON JOIN THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough, Dee Cercone/Everett Collection)It was less than two months ago that we learned that Sony Pictures is fast-tracking a new Ghostbusters to be directed by Jason Reitman (Juno, Tully, Up in the Air), the son of the first movie s director, Ivan Reitman. (Sony also gave us a quick teaser trailer to boot, featuring one of the franchise s most iconic props.) Two weeks later, Sony announced that the new Ghostbusters has been scheduled for release next summer for July 10, 2020. Many details aren t yet known, but the new film will be a direct sequel to the original film that does not use the continuity of the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot. We can however now report that Carrie Coon (Avengers: Infinity War, TV s Fargo) and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) have been cast as a mother and son who are central to the new film. How their characters connect to the original Ghostbusters isn t yet known (this writer s best guess: Egon s daughter and grandson?).4. INVISIBLE MAN REBOOT BECOMING INVISIBLE WOMAN INSTEAD?(Photo by Take Five/Hulu)A couple of weeks before the release of the 2017 reboot of The Mummy, Universal Pictures made a big push to promote their Dark Universe made up of similar classic monster movies. And then The Mummy opened to disappointing box office numbers, and by the end of that year, Universal s plans for movies like Bride of Frankenstein (which would have come out February 14, 2019) were scrapped. Even if the Dark Universe doesn t happen, Universal still has a lot invested in these properties, and so some of them will still eventually get made. One of them was The Invisible Man, in which Johnny Depp would have starred. This week, it was confirmed that Depp has disappeared from the reboot, with Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid s Tale) now in early talks to star. Details aren t yet known (such as whether it would be called The Invisible Woman), except that Leigh Whannell (Upgrade, Insidious: Chapter 3) is now writing and will direct the reboot.5. THIS WEEK IN MECHA: METAL GEAR SOLID, GUNDAM, EDGE OF TOMORROW 2 (Photo by Nippon Sunrise courtesy Everett Collection)However one defines mecha, whether it be human-sized (like Iron Man) or gigantic (like those in Pacific Rim), mecha in Hollywood are still not as prevalent as they are in, say, Japanese anime. This week, however, we learned of development progress for three science fiction projects, all based on pre-existing material, which are likely to feature mecha. Let s start with the Metal Gear Solid movie, based on the popular and long-running Konami video game franchise. We ve known for a while now that it s something of a dream project for Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, but this week, we learned which actor is most likely to star as Solid Snake: Oscar Isaac. No deal is in place just yet, but Isaac came right out and this week, Metal Gear Solid, that s the one I m throwing my hat in for that one, to which Vogt-Roberts seemed to give a positive response. Another mecha movie now in development is the sequel to 2014 s Edge of Tomorrow (with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt expected to return), which is now being worked on by one of the Monster Trucks co-writers. The mecha in Metal Gear Solid is a supporting element, and the mecha in Edge of Tomorrow are human-sized, but the third movie in the news this week is absolutely puts giant mecha front and center. Comic book (and LOST) writer Brian K. Vaughn is now working on an adaptation of the popular manga and anime series Gundam for Legendary Entertainment.
This Week s Ketchup brings you seven headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Final Destination 6 and the sequel to Spider-Man: Far from Home.This WEEK S TOP STORYPARASITE DIRECTOR BONG JOON-HO MIGHT DO A MUSICAL NEXT (Photo by Kimberly French/©Netflix)Ever since director Bong Joon-ho s surprising victories for Parasite at the Academy Awards last month, discussions about what he might direct next have been frequent online. It wasn t until this week, however, that we got an idea directly from Bong himself, and the surprising answer is, I would love to make a musical. Bong continued, Characters would begin singing, then think, ‘Oh my God, **** this, this is too cheesy,’ and stop suddenly. There are amazing musical films, like Singin’ in the Rain. But when I watch them, I feel very embarrassed and start blushing. So it would have to be… different. Moving from Parasite to a deconstructed musical wouldn t be the first time Bong Joon-ho has switched genre gears drastically, as his filmography has also included a monster movie (The Host), post-apocalyptic science fiction (Snowpiercer), and most recently before Parasite, an action adventure about a genetically modified pig (Okja).Other Top Headlines1. TOM HOLLAND HINTS HIS THIRD SPIDER-MAN WILL BE ABSOLUTELY INSANE (Photo by Chuck Zlotnick/ © Columbia Pictures)The COVID-19 crisis is obviously causing many film productions to be delayed, but for now, the film industry appears to be sticking to existing plans further out. Tom Holland, for example, is apparently still planning to start filming of his third solo movie as Spider-Man in July. Although we don t yet have an idea of who the villain(s) might be (J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson might be one obvious answer), Holland did describe the third film as absolutely insane, and that Zendaya will be returning as MJ. The movie release schedule is very much still in flux, but Sony Pictures currently has the next Spider-Man scheduled for July 16, 2021.2. PAUL BETTANY JOINS DAVID GORDON GREEN S CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA MOVIE(Photo by Marvel Studios)Although some directors stay rather narrowly within their own personal wheelhouses, others seem quite comfortable with experimenting with a variety of different genres throughout their careers. One example is David Gordon Green, who started with the indie dramas George Washington and All the Real Girls, which then led to the comedies Pineapple Express and Your Highness, and is currently halfway through the horror trilogy of Halloween (Certified Fresh at 79%), Halloween Kills (10/16/2020), and Halloween Ends (10/15/2021). Green will reportedly film Halloween Ends late this year (depending on possible delays), and then move on to an untitled drama about the Cambridge Analytica data mining scandal. Paul Bettany, who later this year will star in the Disney+ series WandaVision, is reportedly now set to star in the project as the company s CEO Alexander Nix. The lead character of Christopher Wylie is still yet to be cast.3. WHAT STEVEN SPIELBERG REALLY WANTS IS FOR VIN DIESEL TO DIRECT (Photo by Universal Pictures)Many successful actors eventually expand into directing their own films, but Vin Diesel is actually a rare example of a movie star who actually directed a feature film before the roles that made him famous. In 1997, Diesel directed the indie drama Strays, which predates Pitch Black by three years and The Iron Giant by two. This week, while promoting Bloodshot (Rotten at 30%), Diesel talked about a recent conversation he had with Steven Spielberg, who reportedly said to Diesel, When I wrote the role for you in Saving Private Ryan, I was obviously employing the actor, but I was also secretly championing the director in you, and you have not directed enough. That is a crime of cinema and you must get back in the directing chair.’ I haven’t directed enough. Vin Diesel didn t give any indication about what sort of movie he might consider directing next.4. JAMIE FOXX TO DIRECT FAITH-BASED DRAMA WHEN WE PRAY (Photo by Warner Bros.)In addition to all of the movies that were recently delayed from release, it s also worth remembering all of the films that were already in release limbo before the coronavirus outbreak even started. Jamie Foxx made his directorial debut with the basketball comedy All-Star Weekend, which was filmed in late 2018, but going into 2020, All-Star Weekend had not yet secured a distributor in the USA. While the world still waits on his first film, Foxx is now gearing up for his second film as director, which we learned this week will be a faith-based drama called When We Pray. It s unclear if Foxx will also co-star in the film, which will be about two brothers who become pastors at different churches in the same community. The budget of When We Pray is expected to be less than million.5. FINAL DESTINATION 6 DETAILS REVEALED AS ORIGINAL CELEBRATES ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY In addition to being St. Patrick s Day, this Tuesday was sort of dominated by news about the COVID-19 crisis, so even the most avid fans of the Final Destination franchise may have not noticed that the original Final Destination (Rotten at 34%) reached its 20th anniversary on that day. It has also been almost nine years since 2011 release of Final Destination 5 (Fresh at 62%), but screenwriters Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are now developing a sixth Final Destination project. Producer Craig Perry revealed this week that their current plan for the next Final Destination is having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen and police These people deal with death on the front lines every day, and make choices that can cause people to live or die. Most of the earlier films centered around high school or college students, so it sounds like Final Destination 6 might feature older characters.6. CATS FANS DEMAND TO SEE THE BUTTHOLE CUT (Photo by Universal Pictures)For a few years now since Justice League (Rotten at 40%) was released in 2017, there has been a #ReleasetheSnyderCut movement asking for Warner Bros. to release the film as it would have been before Joss Whedon filmed reshoots. With that as context, this Tuesday, actor and comedian Seth Rogen live-Tweeted his experience watching Cats while ahem under the influence, at the end of which he retweeted screenwriter Jack Waz, who had himself responded to another Cats-related tweet by Ben Mekler by saying that a VFX producer friend of a friend was hired in November [whose] entire job was to remove CGI buttholes that had been inserted a few months before. Which means that, somewhere out there, there exists a butthole cut of Cats. And this is how ridiculous online movements get started. Within hours, #ReleasetheButtholeCut was trending on Twitter, which led Universal Pictures to respond thusly, Hopefully that will add to the magic and mythical nature of the cinematic treasure. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your perspective), Mekler received an email the next morning from an unidentified VFX artist who explained that there were never any buttholes to begin with, but that there were a dozen or so shots where the skin and fur sim was groomed or just folded in a way that really REALLY looked like very furry lady genitals and buttholes by accident, and that artists were charged with painting them out. Mekler then put out an open invitation to people who worked on Cats to DM him their best stories, so we may still get a juicy piece of Cats lore out of this after all.
The first appearance of DC Comics Doom Patrol advertised the ragtag group as the world s strangest heroes. More than half a century later, those misfits have their own series on the DC Universe streaming service, Doom Patrol.Premiering February 15, the series follows a group of very unusual characters — a human brain contained in a robot body, a former actress with the ability to stretch her body into impossible shapes, a horribly burned pilot containing an electromagnetic force, and a paraplegic genius who brings them together — as they begrudgingly embark on a mission to stop the supervillain Mr. Nobody from plunging the world into a fit of absurd madness. They re all weird, confirmed Timothy Dalton, who plays the group s de facto leader, Dr. Niles Caulder. Also known as The Chief, Caulder is an avid collector of odd personalities.“He s obviously got a very particular kind of personality; it s a rich and complex personality,” Dalton told Rotten Tomatoes. “But he might be the sanest one of the lot — or the most normal at times.”(Photo by Jace Downs / 2018 Warner Bros Entertainment Inc.)While the Doom Patrol cast was previously introduced in an episode of DC Universe s first live-action series, Titans, the characters made their first appearance in the DC Comics anthology My Greatest Adventure in 1963. The low-selling series was in danger of cancellation when writer Arnold Drake was tasked with creating a new lead feature that could potentially save the title. Drake, fellow writer Bob Haney, and artist Bruno Premiani assembled the group of very unusual characters he dubbed collectively the Doom Patrol, which were advertised on the cover of My Greatest Adventure #80 as the world s strangest heroes. Now, 56 years later, their creations are leading their own TV series, which is based on Drake, Haney, and Premiani s work and later comic book stories by Grant Morrison, Richard Case, and a number of other artists.Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, Crazy Jane, and new recruit Cyborg are led by the Chief, whose keen analytical mind and mechanical prowess was able to save the brain of Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), a race car driver from the 1980s who survived a terrible accident only through The Chief’s intervention. While Cliff is still alive, the fact that he is trapped in a mechanical body means he s without his five senses or full range of emotions — and without his full identity.“Hubris got the best of this narcissistic daredevil race car driver who cheated in more than one way,” Fraser told RT.But in cheating death, Cliff also became Robotman, a person only partially aware of Cliff’s life as the series begins. According to Fraser, there is a clear delineation between Cliff and Robotman that will be explored as the series progresses.“He needs to learn to be a better human being than he ever was in a human body,” Fraser explained. “And he can only do that by being trapped in this mechanical creature.”(Photo by Quantrell D. Colbert / 2018 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)The nature of Cliff s confinement, and that of fellow Doom Patrol member Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), is obvious from their lack of human faces — Cliff’s robot face cannot mimic expression; while Larry, the former test pilot, hides his badly burned visage behind bandages — but another longtime resident of The Chief’s home uses a very different mask to hide her internal prison. The third member of the group, Rita Farr (April Bowlby), was an actress in the Hollywood studios of the 1950s. But an on-set accident turned her into a blob of stretchy gelatinous flesh that she struggles to keep in lockstep with the celluloid memory of her more glamorous appearance. While it may seem narcissistic on its surface, Bowlby said the underlying nature of her character s identity crisis makes her all the stranger.“I think she pushes people away, but all she really wants is people to love her,” Bowlby said. “She s surrounded by old memorabilia of herself, obsessed with herself, and then doesn t understand why other people aren t.”Also strange for Bowlby was creating two different versions of Rita. One appeared in an episode of DC Universe’s Titans last October, but the other is the one audiences meet on Doom Patrol.“Rita [on Titans] was, I felt, very loving and kind, almost like a 50s housewife,” Bowlby said. But when Jeremy Carver came on board to develop Doom Patrol into its own television show, he decided to rethink the characters and set it apart from Titans entirely. Bowlby abandoned the motherly Rita in favor of the one she read in Carver’s first script.“She s crippled emotionally,” she said of the revised character. “And she likes to protect herself from people and being outside in the world.”(Photo by Jace Downs / 2018 Warner Bros Entertainment Inc.)The sense that she must protect herself from the world and protect the world from her abilities left Bowlby with the sense that Rita is not a hero.“I imagine that eventually we ll see Rita own her power, but right now it is not a power. It s a threat to her. She doesn t like it. She doesn t know how to control it,” she explained. “It s almost like she s working against even what [the Doom Patrol is] trying to do.”In fact, Fraser and Dalton both feel their characters are far from the hero archetype. Although Dalton joked that the Chief is somewhat heroic in giving the group a place to live, he added that the viewer should be “left in two minds about him” and his motivations. And as Fraser put it, Cliff is “not out to fight crime and make the world a better place like the Justice League.”But there is one character on Doom Patrol is looking to be a hero: Victor Stone, also known as Cyborg (Joivan Wade). The character may be the best known of Doom Patrol’s cast thanks to his appearances on Teen Titans, Teen Titans GO!, and in the Justice League feature film. The series honors that rich media history by envisioning him as a young man anxious to get on a big superteam like the Justice League. The survivor of a horrific accident that took the life of a close family member, Vic was rebuilt with cybernetic limbs and neural implants that offer him greatly enhanced speed, endurance and a few other abilities. With his promising football career ended by the accident, Vic is dedicated “to being that superhero and protecting people and essentially giving back,” Wade explained.“Being with the Doom Patrol is a great opportunity for him to do that and to learn,” he continued. “He gets to test out being a leader within the group and train to function within a team, which are skills he’ll need.”But even Justice League candidates can have some strangeness to them, and Wade teased a potential oddity for the Vic.“He s a computer as much as he is a human, Wade said, so having this piece of software and the cybernetics which made his body up, there is this question of, ‘Well, it s programming, isn t it?’ So based on that, how does he know what s real and what s not real?”While that leads to a question of identity, Wade is certain Vic’s desire to be a hero is genuine to the man and not his program.When it comes to identities, though, Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) has the market cornered. Created by Grant Morrison and Richard Case in the author s seminal 1980s run on the Doom Patrol comic book, Jane is a metahuman dealing with Dissociative Identity Disorder — and each of her 64 personalities has a superpower of its own. Jane s struggle leads to plenty of trouble at the Caulder mansion and plenty of strange happenings in the town nearby. But Guerrero said there is a very mundane and relatable aspect to Jane that viewers will connect with right away.“Her brain s never off,” she said. “That s part of the reason why some people drink or take on hobbies. It’s just to quiet the mind. Something s always constantly battling to surface.”For Jane, the battle is containing those personalities – all with their own scruples in addition to their powers.“Her job is to be steady and to be neutral and not to feel.” Guerrero said. It makes the character a hero in her eyes just be trying to manage it all.(Photo by Jace Downs / 2018 Warner Bros Entertainment Inc.)Nonetheless, less heroic personas do emerge, like Hammerhead, a super strong and extremely angry person who manifests despite Jane’s best efforts to keep the anger contained.“[Jane is] the person who has all these feelings, but doesn t want to feel too much, and Hammerhead is just is totally OK being in that space and unapologetic, Guerrero said. While the personality often makes life in the mansion worse, There are situations that present themselves where you need Hammerhead’s force and anger to sort of help you through it.”Though Hammerhead s strength can be advantageous, it may be no match for the group s principle antagonist in the the first season: Mr. Nobody. Played by Alan Tudyk, the character is an old foe of The Chief and someone against whom the five main characters must unite. While several members of the Doom Patrol cast question their status as heroes, Tudyk said Nobody is “embracing his villainy” as the series begins.“He wants to hurt Niles, so he uses everything at his disposal — and so much of the world is at his disposal — to hurt him.” Unlike the others, Nobody chose his strangeness. That decision led him to a power and an understanding of the absurdity behind the world, which means he might be able to see himself as a therapist to the group but would take “too much joy in the pain it causes.” As Tudyk explained, “He would use the information you gave him as a therapist against you.”Though Nobody s intentions may be malicious or even heroic in some absurd way, they will change the Doom Patrol forever. As Guerrero put it, “I love how these people are forced to look at themselves — to really, really look at themselves — because they ve all pretty much given up.”Said Dalton, “Their potential strengths are their downfall. They don t know how to use them in any other way than in this self-destruction, really.”In the comics, the group eventually found a way to become heroes, as the cover blurb promised. Perhaps all their television counterparts need to do is find a way to care again, embrace their strangeness, and curb their self-destructive tendencies. It would be heroic enough of an act — at least for one season.Doom Patrol launches on Friday, February 15, with new episodes released on subsequent Fridays on DC Universe.
[Ava] got everybody on the same page and created a familial environment where everybody felt that we were creating this story from a place of love. James: Ava really is one of a kind. It takes a special sort of filmmaker to pull off what she did in Selma. And on her first big-budget film. She really hadn t made a film for over a million dollars before Selma. And for me, I can just remember being just a little bit in awe of the way she helmed the set. We had all these days of hundreds of background actors, horses, and just wild and crazy things. It could be a lot for a director. But she got everybody on the same page and created this familial environment where everybody felt [the] energy that we were creating this story from a place of love, and understood the responsibility in telling the story. THE MOMENT: The Final Crossing Of the BridgeUnder the crippling Alabama sun, the movie s cast of Oscar-caliber actors, talented newcomers, and hundreds of background players and crew members assembled on the Edmund Pettus Bridge to recreate history – over and over. The film depicts three attempts to cross the bridge. The first attempt took place March 7, 1965, and became known as Bloody Sunday after State Troopers attacked the protesters – a confrontation DuVernay captures in unsparing detail. Two days later, Dr. King led a group of thousands to the bridge, including clergy from across the country who took to their knees to pray with him in front of gathered troopers, before he turned the march around – a pivotal move that encouraged President Johnson to introduce the Voting Rights bill into Congress shortly thereafter. The final time we see the bridge is for DuVernay s depiction of the events of March 21, 1965, when Dr. King led the federally sanctioned march from Selma that would end with a rally on the steps of the Montgomery capitol four days later. It s this final triumphant march in the film that lingers as a testament to what Dr. King achieved, but much of its power rests on the raw depiction of the events that preceded it.Wendell Pierce and Stephan James in Selma. (Photo by Atsushi Nishijima/©Paramount Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection) Wearing a backpack the same way that I did on March 7, 1965 The young man who played Dr. King was dressed like Martin Luther King Jr. Rep. Lewis: I did have a chance to spend time with the young man who played me and the young man who played Martin Luther King Jr. I got to know them fairly well. The two young people that I got to know, they really became the embodiment of the whole struggle in Selma. They made the film so real, not only the way they spoke but the clothing that they wore. I really loved the way they tried to walk in our shoes. It made the film so real with the young man wearing a trench coat and wearing a backpack the same way that I did. The young man who played Dr. King was dressed like Martin Luther King Jr., and he spoke like Martin Luther King Jr. James: It s a big credit to the great wardrobe stylists, the head of costumes, Ruth E. Carter. We were totally factual in terms of the clothes of John Lewis, Dr. King, and everybody on Bloody Sunday. We were 100 percent accurate. We followed those photos from those exact moments. I think we all understood how sacred that bridge was, and what our jobs were in reenacting this whole moment. James: We didn t have a whole lot of time. I d say maybe three to five [takes] of the full walk. There are so many people, cast and background actors; we only have a few shots at this. And everybody would just get together, get on the same page and did it in unison. I can t remember how many people there were but, cast and crew included, and there was just this sort of solemn sort of energy where everybody sort of understood what we were doing. I think we all understood how sacred that bridge was and what our jobs were in reenacting this whole moment. We were retracing historical footsteps – I mean you re literally tracing the steps. These steps that have guided us through the history of our country. It s meaningful. And it gets to the point where you re not just making a film; you re recreating a moment in time. Marchers crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. (Photo by Atsushi Nishijima/©Paramount Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection) You just think about how brave this man is and what he did to inspire a generation of people like him. Rep. Lewis: I did get an opportunity to visit the set at a church in Atlanta. And while being there, visiting the set, a storm came up, and it started thundering and lightning, and they had to cut off the filming for a while and start it over again. But it reminded me of sometimes, during mass beatings and rallies and church services, a storm would come up, in Alabama or some other part of the deep south, and you had to get in the action. James: I really hadn t spoken to John in the flesh. I had some communications with him through email. But to actually see him in the flesh for the first time He walked in the middle of one of our scenes, and it was one of those moments where everything like freezes, and he s the only person who is still in real time. You just think about how brave this man is and what he did to inspire a generation of people like him who are changing the world now today. And he s still doing incredible work. I just saw him the other day at the Academy Awards. We shared a little moment. It s pretty special to meet a guy like that in person and just know the impact he s had on your life and the impact that he s had on the world. THE IMPACT: A New Legacy of ActivismSelma earned rightful praise for its historical accuracy, the nuance and beauty of its storytelling, and for its performances – it sits Certified Fresh at 99% on the Tomatometer. And it ushered in a new wave of formidable talent; not just DuVernay, but Oyelowo and co-stars like Tessa Thompson, LaKeith Stanfield, Andre Holland, and, of course, James, who would go on to star in Amazon s Homecoming. Its impact off-camera has been powerful, too. Selma has become a standard in history classes, and some say it was the turning point for major changes to the Academy Awards.The movie received two Oscar nominations at the 2015 ceremony: Best Picture and Best Original Song for Glory, performed by John Legend and featuring Common, which would win on the night. But many moviegoers and industry insiders were shocked to see DuVernay and Oyelowo left out of the Best Director and Best Actor categories, respectively. Frustrated by the snubs and the fact that no persons of color were nominated for major awards that year, Twitter user April Reign created the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag that trended globally for several days, and which had an impact that would last years. The Academy responded to the controversy by passing new rules and voting guidelines that helped to make membership more closely resemble that of the general moviegoing audience. The efforts have resulted in a new crop of Academy voters and possibly the nominations that would go to non-traditional films like Mad Max: Fury Road, Black Panther, Lady Bird, Get Out, and The Shape of Water. In recreating history, DuVernay had made some history of her own. It moved me. They were able to make the drama come alive on the streets of Selma. Rep. Lewis: Watching the film and just listening to the music. It moved me. They were able to make the drama come alive on the streets of Selma. To make the words, the suffering, the tears, the crying, but also the strength and the determination that, in spite of everything, that we were going to continue until we got the Voting Rights Act of 1965 passed. People started singing Glory. I watched with students high school, elementary school, teachers, parents and we just start singing Glory and I start singing, and they cry, then I cry, and we are crying together. Because you cannot separate the essence of Selma without Glory.' James: I can t remember anything that I ve been prouder to be a part of than Selma. I think the way that the whole film came together I just felt incredibly fortunate to have been a part of that cast, with that ensemble, under the direction of Ava. And to share that moment with my mom and my cousins who I brought to the film s premiere. I don t know, it felt like a dream come true and something I won t forget.
国服似乎延续了使命召唤系列一贯的传奇，上线当日百度指数高达35W，APPStore免费榜第一。游戏的质量也获得了广大玩家的一致好评，气势汹汹的使命召唤手游，仿佛要向手游王者的宝座发起冲击。 Given the immense anticipation leading up to episode 3 of HBO fantasy juggernaut Game of Thrones 89%, the assumption was that the battle against the Night King s army at Winterfell in The Long Night would be unequivocally epic. But you know what they say about assumptions.Critics and fans hung on for two relatively mellow first weeks of the final season. It was fine that the premiere, Winterfell, was mostly filled with character reunions and episode 2, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, favored sentimentality over conflict, because everything was building to the #BattleofWinterfell (though that hashtag had been seen before).Alas, not everyone was blown away by the latest battle at the Stark ancestral home, as demonstrated by the episode s unusually low (for the series, that is) Tomatometer score: 75% with 92 reviews so far (at 1:20 p.m. PT on April 30).(Photo by HBO)Some critics were pleasantly surprised by the episode s unexpected twists, others were utterly disappointed and lamented the return to the pursuit of the Iron Throne. Many critics found the battle brutal and emotionally exhausting — but in a good way! But more than a mere few — 23% if you do the math — as well as some vocal fans on Twitter, found it less-than-thrilling at best, and a betrayal at worst. The Long Night is the lowest-scoring of the season s three episodes so far, and if it stays that low, it would be the second lowest-scoring Game of Thrones episode ever (it recently dropped below season 3 s The Bear and the Maiden Fair ). To put that score into context, however, that s still higher than popular recent box office superhero fare like Aquaman (2018) 65%.Read on to find out what critics had to say about Season 8 Episode 3: "The Long Night" 74%.Did The Long Night live up to your expectations? Tell us in the poll below.How Did Everyone Fare in Battle?(Photo by HBO)Fighting an army of the dead is never easy, but Daenerys and Jon’s output was so pitiful here that I worry their alliance might not make it to the final conflict with Cersei. — David Sims, The AtlanticAfter bridging the trenches, the wights started climbing the walls. So it was up to Gendry, Jaime, and the gang to fight them all off one by one — a project that was manifestly futile from the start. Still, it gave Brienne a chance to save Jaime’s life, so that was nice. — Michael Hogan, Vanity FairWhat was most striking to me was that while the men were busy having existential crises in the middle of a bloody battle (I’m looking at you Clegane), women were getting shit done. — Anne Cohen, Refinery29Cersei is a winner because she knows, every time, that she can just hang back and let other people do her dirty work, then sip her wine and chuckle to herself about how everybody else did the dirty work for her. — Todd VanDerWerff, VoxRead more: The 11 Biggest Moments from The Long Night.

Spoiler alert: The following article contains details about the final episode of The Boys season 2. Apparently, girls get it done on The Boys after all. The second season of the darkly hilarious Amazon Prime Video series wrapped up Friday with an explosive and fiery finale — literally — as the Boys took down the evil Nazi superhero Stormfront (Aya Cash). The win was mainly thanks to Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) and her powers, of course, plus a little help from gal pals Starlight/Annie (Erin Moriarty) and Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott).Rotten Tomatoes chatted with some of the women from the series about the implications of the action-packed finale and what it was like to film that memorable final Stormfront scene. Below, we break down the episode and Cash, Fukuhara, Moriarty, Shantel VanSanten (Becca Butcher), and Colby Minifie (Ashley Barrett) share their thoughts on the ending.What Happened in the Episode?(Photo by Courtesy of Amazon Studios)While our heroes were all completing their own mini-missions separately for some of the episode — including Hughie (Jack Quaid) and Annie leaking photos proving Stormfront was a literal Nazi (she s over 100 years old) — they all came together in a big showdown. Billy (Karl Urban) and Becca saved her son, Ryan (Cameron Crovetti), from his sadistic father, Homelander (Antony Starr) and his even more diabolical white power–spewing girlfriend, Stormfront.(Photo by Amazon Prime Video)Hughie, Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Mother s Milk (Laz Alonso) all ineffectively shot at the super-protected, super-powered Stormfront with guns until Maeve showed up and the women stepped in — Starlight/Annie, Kimiko, and Maeve kicked the crap out of her until she launched herself away to safety.Unfortunately, Stormfront ended up finding Billy, Becca, and Ryan, and despite Becca stabbing her in the eye they couldn t overpower her. As Stormfront strangled Becca, Ryan s eyes lit up and everything exploded. When everyone came to, Stormfront was burnt to a crisp, missing limbs, and muttering in German, and Becca was mortally wounded. She made Billy promise yet again to protect Ryan, and also to make sure he knew that her death wasn t his fault.(Photo by Courtesy of Amazon Studios)Enter Homelander, who obviously did not take Stormfront s injury well and was not pleased that Billy was about to flee with Ryan. Before anything terrible could happen, Maeve saved the day again by blackmailing Homelander with the video of him not saving people on the airplane.Meanwhile, the higher-ups at the culty church decided it was OK that A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) stole the Stormfront photos from their archives and used their influence to let him back into the Seven, leaving the disgraced Deep (Chace Crawford) extremely pissed.(Photo by Courtesy of Amazon Studios)A congratulatory call from church bigwig Alastair Adana (Goran Visnjic) to congresswoman Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) revealed that the two were in bed together somehow, which was a head-scratcher until they hung up, Alastair cracked open a Fresca, and his head exploded. Cut to Victoria staring menacingly into his window. So SHE was the one popping people s heads like grapes! This will probably not be great for Hughie next season, since the episode ended with him asking for a job so he could fight against Vought the right way. Stormfront s Fiery (and Snotty) End Took Six and a Half Hours of Prosthetics Prep(Photo by Amazon Prime Video)The image of a burned, broken, limb-less Stormfront is probably the most haunting scene from a season filled with some pretty messed-up stuff. Cash said that the disturbing look was achieved via gray sleeves to cover her limbs (which VFX artists later covered), and some very talented makeup artists. On the day, I m wearing gray sleeves to do the missing limbs and stuff like that. But I have all the prosthetics on me, which took six and a half hours to put on. And then I have Homelander coming down and snotting on my face, she said. I have like this much of my actual face visible, and I m trying to get away from the snot and I m like, The snot should land on the prosthetic, please. [Laughs] I mean, it s a very intense thing on the day. And then to watch it back, it s the magic of being on a show like this, seeing all the crazy VFX change it into something else and seeing how like sad and pathetic and ridiculous she looks at the end, as Homelander comes down to find her. It s cathartic also, Cash continued, because as much as an actor you want to find some sort of humanity in a role, Stormfront is bad, and I want her to be punished just as the audience does. Corporate Campaigning Aided a Manipulative White Supremacist s Rise(Photo by Jasper Savage/Amazon Prime Video)While Stormfront was more evil than anyone could ve predicted, her rise to prominence was certainly aided by Vought executive Ashley s girls get it done corporate PR campaign. Ashley s job is is to deal with optics, to make the optics look as good as they possibly can, Minifie (pictured above in episode 202) said. And I think it was her really brilliant idea to be like, Yeah, Girls get it done. OK, Stormfront s been dropped on my doorstep, and I m gonna serve it up some good, capitalistic feminist spin, here we go. She will do anything for those optics. But, as Cash added, Stormfront s trying to control the optics for obviously a different reason. It s not monetarily based. She wants to use them to create the genocide that she so desperately would like. But it s all about manipulation and her outward feminism in the beginning is both a misdirect and a manipulation. I think that she understands how to real people in in order to get [what she wants]. She s the YouTube algorithm. She knows what to show you next to bring you down the rabbit hole. VanSanten Shed Many, Many Tears Over Becca s Untimely End(Photo by Courtesy of Amazon Studios)VanSanten shed so many tears over Becca s death, in fact, that she felt like a weirdo for caring so deeply about her character. But she always wants the best for the people she s playing. As the human being who pours her heart and her soul into Becca, all I ever wished for was to have healing and love and redemption and all of these things. I m not going to lie, it s pretty tough to have a finality of a character and that be the end no matter what, for a story to end, she said. It s just like one of your closest, best friends — because this person lives in you in your heart and through you — and their life is now gone. How do I process that? And I can only do that by watching season 3 and being like, please, please, please! Let it not be in vain. Season 3 Will Surely Honor the Fallen Mom(Photo by Courtesy of Amazon Studios)VanSanten trusts that creator Eric Kripke will do right by Becca, however. And she s heartened by the fact that although Billy resisted taking responsibility for Ryan, he did the right thing in the end and realized that Ryan is an extension of his wife, the woman he loves so much.She is happy to watch how the stories continue to play out in the third season, because she knows Kripke and the writers are good at following up on seeds they ve planted. In the first season, some people online were concerned that Becca explicitly said that Homelander raped her, arguing that maybe it was a gray area. But VanSanten knew — and Kripke confirmed — that there was no gray area, a point that she was able to drive home in season 3; in fact, nearly all of the major female characters storylines address some form of sexual discrimination and assault. When I watch the women on our show, it isn t like we just shine this flashlight in the closet and we re like, Let s see, there s monsters in there. Oh, but look at this flashy pretty thing! We re like, No, you know what, we re gonna step in, and we re gonna fucking confront it. We re gonna call attention to it, and I don t care if it makes you uncomfortable, if you don t want to hear the R word. Too fucking bad. It exists. We need to talk about it, whether it s racism, whether it s rape, whether it s sexual assault, whether it s white supremacy — however many issues the show actually confronts, and not only confronts, but actually deals with while still being entertaining. Tiptoeing that line is something really important in TV for me to be a part of, VanSanten continued, to be able to have a bigger narrative where we get to have conversations that aren t just like, So who played the biggest joke on set?' Kimiko Studied Starlight and Becca for Social Cues(Photo by Amazon Prime Video)The fact that all the women characters are so multi-dimensional and strong while also being vulnerable at the same time is something that most of the women on the cast are proud of. They re not just strong female characters, they re also scared and tough and curious.Kimiko had a very isolated upbringing (you know, thanks to the fact that she was kidnapped by a terrorist organization). When she meets Starlight she s a little bit like, Oh, she s kind of like me, she s a woman, but she s so different from who I am. I think she has the same kind of reaction when Becca comes into the story and Becca visits the Boys hideout, Fukuhara said. She s kind of in awe of how they do certain things, their movements. It s feminine, but they also have their own will and they have their own agendas going on, especially Annie does, and it was really fun and exciting to get to play with that side of Kimiko for those themes, because it s such a new experience for her. Moriarty Says the Show s Confrontation of Tough Issues Is Admirable, Timely, and Needed(Photo by Courtesy of Amazon Studios)And like VanSanten, Moriarty is also proud that the show is tackling such important issues in such an impactful way. Sexism, racism, white supremacy, radicalization of youth via YouTube — all things that the show takes on that many other series would be afraid to touch at all. I mean, the darkness of the season, yeah, it is really dark. But then again, this year has been darker in a way that none of us could have anticipated, Moriarty said. But what s been brought to light this year is things that have always been around, they ve just come to the surface in a way where everyone is jumping on board to believe in these things and fight these things. But I think the darkness of season 2 is kind of realistic. And it s refreshing to me, because I m really sick of things that should be addressed being taboo, and being in denial of certain aspects of our society. Because when you re in denial, nothing will be improved upon or addressed.
bob游戏官方网站 Olivia Wilde s directorial debut, Booksmart, is being called one of the best high-school movies of the decade – a Superbad meets Lady Bird laugh-fest that sees two studious types making up for years of good behavior with one night of craziness. The movie blew audiences at South by Southwest away when it premiered there in March, and is currently at 100% on the Tomatometer. But how well do the people who made Booksmart know the high school movies their new movie is being so favorably compared to? We put them to the test with a special edition of our game, Name the Review. Wilde and costars Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever each read reviews of famous teen and high school movies aloud, and then guess which movies the reviews were for. How did they fare? Let s just say it wasn t a straight-As situation.Booksmart is in theaters May 24, 2019Like this? Subscribe to our newsletter and get more features, news, and guides in your inbox every week.
