Back in 2004, Guillermo del Toro had arguably his first true mainstream success with an adaptation of a Mike Mignola comic series about a half-demon superhero with a dark sense of humor; that movie was Certified Fresh and went on to spawn an even better-reviewed sequel. Fifteen years later, we get a reboot of the character, with Stranger Things David Harbour taking over for Ron Perlman in the title role, and the reviews have been less than kind. Neil Marshall, the director behind celebrated fan-favorite horror flick The Descent, steps behind the camera here, recounting Hellboy s origins and setting him against a centuries-old sorceress who just wants to make demon babies with him and rule the world. Unfortunately, critics say Hellboy certainly earns its R rating, but not necessarily in the right ways, mistaking F-bombs and mindless gore for humor and imagination. It s an unfortunate reimagining of a normally fun character that strands him in a messy, poorly constructed story, then drowns him in blood and severed limbs and hopes the audience won t notice.澳门捕鱼王网站巴兔游戏盒子尊享版一款免费领首充的玩手游平台，无限刷元宝+20倍手游加速+免费代金券+角色交易。平台还支持小号回收，游戏折扣1折起，给玩家更多福利，支持iOS、安卓系统下载!平台为新用户准备了精选的游戏礼包，可以免费游玩高质量手机游戏。
This year’s Oscar race may indeed come down to two battle-weary veterans, with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in prime position for a classic Hollywood showdown next February. On the other side country, tucked back on a nondescript road amidst the farmland of New Jersey, sits the home of another iconic veteran who’s got a new film that may not challenge those films for Best Picture glory, but which thematically feels right at home with the Scorsese and Tarantino movies. It’s called Western Stars, and it marks the feature directorial debut of rock legend Bruce Springsteen.Co-directed by Springsteen and his longtime collaborator Thom Zimny, Western Stars is part concert film, part meditation on the complexities of getting older. With some of the film set on Springsteen’s farm and some set out among the quiet stillness of the Californian desert, Western Stars isn’t as big, bold, and flashy as both The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but all three films contemplate the effects of aging, of confronting regrets and mistakes, of trying to embrace what’s there instead of what isn’t. Springsteen, who turned 70 last month, is certainly aware of the similarities between the pictures – and even more revealing: Irishman and Hollywood are two of his favorite films of the year.Seated comfortably on a couch inside his New Jersey recording studio, dressed in classic Springsteen attire (blue jeans, jean jacket and white undershirt, natch), the music legend and now film director spoke at length with Rotten Tomatoes about how his love of film has inspired him as a man and as an artist. From the Westerns of John Ford to the sprawling meditative works of Terrence Malick, the musician doesn’t hold back when it comes to his own cinematic influences.(Photo by Rob DeMartin, © Warner Bros. )“The Grapes of Wrath had a huge influence on me when I saw it – just the imagery and the story it was telling,” he said. “Of course, The Searchers and all the Westerns, which I had seen as a kid, but never really absorbed. Also, the noir stuff, like Out of the Past with Robert Mitchum… that was a huge film for me. And then there were more modern things, like Martin Scorsese’s pictures – but also I remember at the time I wrote ‘Nebraska,’ I had seen a Terrence Malick picture for the first time. [His films] are meditative; lots of voiceover… Days of Heaven, Tree of Life. The soundscape for Nebraska really came from Badlands, the Malick picture.”Springsteen told Rotten Tomatoes he began watching a lot of films when he was about 27, “from ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ forward.” He said: “I became a bit of a film buff; I was looking at other artists and the way they were conceptualizing their work. So of course, I ran into John Ford, and I thought it was interesting how he was working on certain consistent themes in every picture. How every picture sort of related to another one in certain ways; you had the cast of characters and an ensemble that he worked with really steadily. You know, I had my band and I was interested in telling this longer story where each album would relate to another in a certain way.”That consistency in collaboration is what also drew Springsteen to Scorsese’s work, and it’s what is top of mind when he discusses the director’s epic new work, The Irishman.“With The Irishman, it was beautiful to see that cast working together again,” he said. “To see Marty at the top of his game… those guys and that history, you’re never going to see that again. That group of actors – there’s never going to be a group of actors quite like that again. And if you grew up with them, as folks in my generation did, that’s a powerful picture.”(Photo by Rob DeMartin, © Warner Bros. )In Western Stars, Springsteen chose a unique format through which to share his newest album with the world. Instead of touring with it, he created this film as a record of the music and the stories behind each song, but also of his love for his wife, Patti Scialfa, who plays beside him on each tune with the duo backed by an orchestra inside an old barn on Springsteen’s sprawling farm in New Jersey. The film – featuring songs about lost, often broken men in search of redemption interspersed with thoughtful, almost-poetic words of wisdom from the Boss himself – feels like it’s about a man letting go of his mistakes in order to embrace the love that’s all around him.We asked Springsteen if that was an accurate take on Western Stars as a whole.“That’s as good an explanation of it as any, you know,” he said with a smile. “It’s about a trip or a journey that everyone has to make. When you’re young, you wanna do what you wanna do when you wanna do it. Individual freedom means an awful amount to you. But as you get into your thirties and certainly your forties, life begins to thin out, if that’s how you’re approaching it. And so [you’re on this] pursuit of a fuller life, and in a very strange way it’s the domestic constraints [that] provide you with a freer life. As you get older, you have a home, a place to gather yourself and reasons for the work that you’re performing. The definition of what freedom is alters as you grow older, and so the film is about the way that that word changes as time passes by. But it’s also about the price you pay if you don’t grow or change as that time passes by.”As he so often does at all of his shows, Springsteen ends the film with a more celebratory encore, covering Glen Campbell’s “Rhinestone Cowboy,” as if to leave audiences with one last anecdote: never stop chasing your dreams.“The character in the film makes this journey, and it needed to be celebrated a little bit,” he said. “When the song comes up, it’s a release for the audience. It’s also slightly connected to the genre I was working in; Glen Campbell was an inspiration for a lot of the song stylings.Of course, it’s hard not to discuss “Rhinestone Cowboy” and the aging cowboys featured in Western Stars and The Irishman without also bringing up the aging cowboys at the center of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Springsteen not only told us that he had seen the film, but also that he’s a big fan of Tarantino’s latest. “I did see it, and I thought, yeah, that’s a funny little coincidence,” he said when the thematic similarities were brought up. “I really loved it – that was one of my favorite pictures of the past year. It was quite touching, and quite lovely.”Western Stars is in limited release October 25.

(Photo by Universal / courtesy Everett Collection)All Brendan Fraser Movies, Ranked by TomatometerLike a defrosted caveman, Brendan Fraser arrived out of nowhere when he starred as the titular Encino Man in 1992. The Paleolithic cult movie is a prototypical 90s comedy: It s broad, goofy, and Pauly Shore is never more than 10 feet away off-camera. Airheads and George of the Jungle were more in that 90s style, while 1998 s Gods and Monsters showed off Fraser s range. (Though School Ties, released the same year as Encino Man, had already proven some dramatic chops.) The Mummy turned Fraser into an international star, with the 1999 blockbuster remembered fondly today.But flops began to mount (Monkeybone, Dudley Do-Right, Looney Tunes: Back in Action), and though Fraser was in Best Picture-winner Crash, so was half of Hollywood. Even The Mummy unraveled: The box office returns for Returns were good, but the Rachel Weisz-less Tomb of the Dragon Emperor bombed, killing the franchise in 2008. By 2010, we were witnessing Fraser getting blasted by skunks in Furry Vengeance and yelling Miley Cyrus! as an expletive. After 2013 s Gimme Shelter, Fraser seemed to be no longer cast in movies.At the end of the decade, Fraser s voice was being heard again. He was Robotman in DC Comics series Titans. Well-received by fans, Robotman got upgraded to main status in spin-off Doom Patrol. Along with a recurring role in The Affair s third season, Fraser s re-appearance made audiences wonder about the likable, genial actor s long absence. The question was answered in a 2018 GQ interview, where Fraser alleges he was sexually assaulted in 2003 by Philip Berk, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and was subsequently blacklisted by the industry for speaking out.From this revelation (and more, like a contentious divorce, surgeries from doing stunt work, and the death of his mother), Fraser has emerged as a populist figure in the celebrity world, one whose fans are drawn to because of his survival through mistreatment and struggle. Like Britney Spears (whose conservatorship battle is documented in Framing Britney Spears), Fraser was once mocked and laughed at, but is now generating easy and eager goodwill after cultural re-examination of victimhood and predatory showbiz behavior. Directors seem glad Fraser s around again: Steven Soderbergh put him on-screen in No Sudden Move, Fraser s first Certified Fresh movie in 17 years. And the comeback continues with his casting in Darren Aronofsky s The Whale and Martin Scorsese s Killers of the Flower Moon.Now, we re ranking all Brendan Fraser movies by Tomatometer!

Today s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Dune and Space Jam 2, and new roles for Chris Hemsworth, Michael B. Jordan, and Charlize Theron.This WEEK S TOP STORYTHOR STAR WILL SMASH PUNY WRESTLERS AS HULK (HOGAN)(Photo by Hopper Stone/Columbia Pictures)Professional wrestling may not be as popular as it once was, but that s also relative to exactly how popular it once was, like in the 1980s and the 1990s. The World Wrestling Federation s top star, at the height of their popularity, was indisputably Terry Bollea, AKA Hulk Hogan. Unlike the WWF/WWE s other most popular star, Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Hulk Hogan was never able to convert his wrestling fame to movie star fame, but he was still very, very popular, including starring in a Saturday morning cartoon, many video games, and four seasons of the Hogan Knows Best reality show. Throw in this far-reaching legal ruling, and it makes total sense that Netflix is following up on GLOW with a Hulk Hogan biopic from director Todd Phillips (The Hangover, October s Joker). What s perhaps more surprising is that the famously Floridian wrestler will be played by Australia s Chris Hemsworth (that s right, Thor s going to play Hulk). Having said that, Hemsworth has already shown that he can drop his Aussie accent in movies like Cabin in the Woods and Bad Times at the El Royale. Netflix s film will reportedly focus mostly on Terry Bollea s creation of the Hulk Hogan persona, and the height of his popularity during the Hulkamania era. (If you ve ever been curious about how Bollea was able to even call himself Hulk Hogan, you can actually read his 1985 contract with Marvel Comics right here.)Fresh Developments1. DUNE WORM SURFS INTO PRIME NOVEMBER 2020 RELEASE DATE(Photo by Ben Rothstein/Marvel Studios)One of the hottest times of the year to release a movie is the middle of November, right before Thanksgiving. Notably, that s the period when four of the Harry Potter movies were released, and until this week, it was also when Warner Bros. had scheduled the third Fantastic Beasts prequel (which is now on hold following the second film s disappointing box office). Instead, WB has scheduled their remake of Dune for November 20, 2020, which instantly made it the last big movie scheduled before James Cameron s Avatar 2 (12/18/2020). The writing has been on the sand for a few weeks now that Dune might be a huge movie, as it features an all-star cast that includes Timothée Chalamet (as Paul Atreides), Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Stellan Skarsgard, and Zendaya. This week, David Dastmalchian, who had a supporting role in Marvel s Ant-Man and the Wasp, also joined the cast as Piter De Vries (played by Brad Dourif in the 1984 Dune). This Dune remake is being directed by Denis Villeneuve, who has never scored below 71% on the Tomatometer and whose last three films were all Certified Fresh at 86% or higher.2. DANIEL KALUUYA, LAKEITH STANFIELD JOIN BLACK PANTHER BIOPIC JESUS WAS MY HOMEBOY (Photo by Justin Lubin/Universal Pictures)Every once in a while, a new project comes along that takes elements from a few different recent box office (or critical) hits and puts them all in a blender to produce an intriguing new film. For this story, the movies in question are Black Panther, Mudbound, Get Out, and Sorry to Bother You. Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) is in talks to star as Black Panther Party member Fred Hampton in a biopic called Jesus Was My Homeboy for Warner Bros. Lakeith Stanfield, who starred in Sorry to Bother You and had a small supporting role in Get Out, is also in talks for the film, which will be produced for the studio by Black Panther director Ryan Coogler and Charles D. King (Mudbound, Sorry to Bother You). Coogler is also working with Warner Bros. on 2021 s Space Jam 2 (more on that below).3. JAMES BOND 25 AND FAST FURIOUS 9 SCHEDULED FOR APRIL AND MAY OF 2020 (Photo by Francois Duhamel/Columbia Pictures)Both James Bond 25 and Fast Furious 9 were already scheduled for release next year, but this week saw both films shifting their specific release dates. Let s start with James Bond 25 (the title will definitely change before release), which had been scheduled for Valentine s Day, but has now been shifted back two months to April 8, 2020. That move is good news for the animated fantasy adventure Nimona, which is still scheduled for February 14, 2020. James Bond 25 is taking the date formerly occupied by Fast Furious 9, which has been pushed back a month to May 22, 2020, up against The SpongeBob Movie: It s a Wonderful Sponge (and a week before Disney s Maleficent II). Neither Fast Furious 9 nor James Bond 25 have actually started filming yet. James Bond 25 is scheduled to start production in April, and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, Side Effects) has been hired to rewrite the screenplay with just four weeks to work on it. Daniel Craig will be working on James Bond 25, and then in the spring of 2020 he will move on to The Creed of Violence, set during the Mexican Revolution in 1910.4. MICHAEL B. JORDAN TO STAR IN A JOURNAL FOR JORDAN (Photo by Marvel Studios)2018 was a big year for Michael B. Jordan, as he starred in Black Panther, HBO s Fahrenheit 451 remake, and the Rocky franchise sequel Creed II. Hollywood hasn t been shy about giving him more opportunities either, including the bestselling book adaptation Just Mercy (1/17/2020) and Tom Clancy s Without Remose (9/18/2020). Two other Michael B. Jordan projects moved forward this week, starting with Lionsgate s action thriller The Silver Bear, which will be directed by Gerard McMurray (2018 s The First Purge), who was also one of the producers on Jordan s breakout drama Fruitvale Station. The Silver Bear is based on a series of bestselling novels by Derek Haas (showrunner of NBC s various Chicago shows), so it s seen as a potential franchise starter. Jordan is also (rather appropriately) in talks to star in A Journal for Jordan, a drama expected to be Denzel Washington s next film as director (his Fences was Certified Fresh at 92%).5. CHARLIZE THERON IS NETFLIX S LATEST BIG STAR AS A MEMBER OF THE OLD GUARD (Photo by Andres Otero/Everett Collection)Netflix s recent hit thriller Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, was far from the streamer s first star-driven project (Brad Pitt s War Machine comes to mind, too), but it definitely showed that Hollywood A-listers are open to working with them. The latest one to sign on at Netflix is Charlize Theron, who will star in the action movie The Old Guard. The film will be based on the Image Comics title of the same name created by writer Greg Rucka (Wonder Woman) and artist Leandro Fernandez (Deadpool, Punisher: MAX). Theron and KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk) will play members of a group of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their team together when they discover the existence of a new immortal and their extraordinary abilities are exposed. The Old Guard will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, who at one point had been expected to direct the Black Cat/Silver Sable movie for Sony Pictures.6. THIS WEEK IN MARVEL: GWYNETH PALTROW DONE, BLACK WIDOW AND LOKI (SERIES) NEWS(Photo by Zade Rosenthal/Marvel Studios)The influence and success of Marvel Studios is so pervasive that it s a rare week with no development news from their corner. This was a relatively slow week, but there were still at least three items of note. The story that seemed to receive the most notice came from Gwyneth Paltrow, who basically announced that after Avengers: Endgame (4/26/2019) she is done playing her Iron Man character Pepper Potts. With no confirmed future Marvel movies for Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man (yet), it s sort of unsurprising, but in the same way, it could be interpreted as a hint that Downey may be the next big Marvel star to drop out (after Chris Evans, who s done as Captain America). One female character Marvel Studios is definitely not done with is Scarlett Johansson s Black Widow, who is expected to get her own film sometime in the 2020 to 2022 range. To that end, the studio has hired screenwriter Ned Benson (The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby) to rewrite the Black Widow screenplay begun by Jac Schaeffer (TiMER, The Hustle). This move is raising some eyebrows because Black Widow, which will be directed by Cate Shortland, had been seen as a heavily female-led production. Finally, in related news, the Loki series that will stream on the upcoming Disney+ app will be written by Michael Wadron of the popular animated series Rick and Morty.7. LEBRON JAMES SPACE JAM 2 CONFIRMED FOR THE SUMMER OF 2021(Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images)There has seemingly been talk about a Space Jam sequel pretty much since the weekend that the Looney Tunes basketball movie (Rotten at 38%) first came out in 1996. Although it s true that LeBron James has been talking about Space Jam 2 for a while, a skeptical fan still could have wondered if this thing would really happen. Well, Warner Bros. is making it official this week, as the studio has announced a Space Jam 2 release date of July 16, 2021. This puts the CGI/basketball hybrid comedy a week after Indiana Jones 5 and a week before Mission: Impossible 7. The other big move from Warner Bros. this week shifted Godzilla vs Kong (the fourth of their monster movies after this year s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, 5/31/2019) from May 22, 2020 to March 13, 2020. That May 22, 2020 date is where Fast and Furious 9 is now scheduled, and the new competition for Godzilla vs Kong on March 13, 2020 is the less imposing John Cena movie Playing with Fire.
Uzo Aduba and Matthew Broderick will lead the cast of Netflix’s Painkiller, a six-episode series about the beginnings of the opioid crisis and specifically Purdue Pharma’s role in it. Aduba will play Edie, an investigator leading the case against Purdue, and Broderick will play Richard Sackler, the former chairman and president of Purdue. Peter Berg will direct all six episodes and serve as an executive producer, while Alex Gibney, the filmmaker of HBO’s recent similarly-themed documentary The Crime of the Century, will also be an EP. The limited series is based on author Barry Meier’s book Pain Killer: An Empire of Deceit and the Origin of America’s Opioid Epidemic and journalist Patrick Radden Keeke’s New Yorker article “The Family That Built an Empire of Pain.”Jeff Goldblum has joined the fifth season of HBO Max’s Search Party, where he’ll play Tunnel Quinn, a tech billionaire who becomes a business partner of Alia Shawkat’s Dory.Lost alum Dominic Monaghan will star in AMC’s space drama Moonhaven, playing Paul Sarno, a detective on the Moon who has the job of trying to solve Earth’s problems. The thriller, from Lodge 49 writer and producer Peter Ocko, revolves around cargo pilot and smuggler Bella Sway, who’s accused of a crime 100 years in the future and is sentenced to live in a utopian community called Moonhaven and help solve Earth’s problems before its civilization ends. (TVLine)Jerry O’Connell, who has been a guest co-host on CBS’s The Talk recently, has been hired as a permanent co-host, filling the spot vacated by Sharon Osbourne.(Photo by Leon Bennett/Getty Images)The Paramount+ limited series The Offer, about the making of The Godfather, has added to its cast, as the production began this week in Los Angeles. Grey’s Anatomy alum Justin Chambers (pictured) has signed on to play Marlon Brando, while Lou Ferrigno will play Lenny Montana, the actor who portrayed Luca Brasi in The Godfather, and The Sopranos’ alum Michael Rispoli will play New York mobster Tommy Lucchese. The rest of the cast includes Miles Teller as producer Al Ruddy, Matthew Goode as famed producer Robert Evans, Colin Hanks as Barry Lapidus (the head of Gulf Western, which owned Paramount at the time), Dan Fogler as Francis Ford Coppola, Juno Temple as Ruddy’s assistant Bettye McCartt, Giovanni Ribisi as mob boss Joe Colombo, Frank John Hughes as Frank Sinatra, and Patrick Gallo as Mario Puzo, the author of The Godfather novel.Both John Lithgow and Jennifer Carpenter, whose characters didn’t make it out of the original Dexter series alive, will reprise their characters in Showtime’s upcoming limited sequel series. Presumably in flashbacks, unless Dexter (Michael C. Hall) has gotten up to some supernatural shenanigans after his lumberjack days. Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) and The Late, Late Show host James Corden will co-star in the Amazon limited dramedy series Mammals, about the relationship of a married couple. The series is written by Jez Butterworth (Flag Day), and reunites Hawkins and Corden, who starred in a spoof of The Shape of Water during her guest appearance on his CBS late-night show.DJ Kahled is replacing Snoop Dogg as a judge on season 2 of TBS’ competition series Go-Big Show. Comedian Cristela Alonzo will host The WB’s remake of Legends of the Hidden Temple, which premieres on Oct. 10. Nicole Ari Parker, Sarita Choudhury, and Karen Pittman have joined the cast of HBO Max’s Sex and the City prequel series And Just Like That, playing a documentary filmmaker named Lisa Todd Wexley (Parker); real estate broker Seema Patel (Choudhury); and Dr. Nya Wallace, a Columbia Law School professor (Pittman). Zach Braff has joined the cast of the HBO Max sci-fi romantic comedy movie Moonshot. The Scrubs alum (and Emmy nominee for directing a Season 1 episode of Ted Lasso) woll play an “entrepreneur and visionary” who colonizes Mars. Lana Condor, Cole Sprouse, Mason Gooding, Emily Rudd, and Lukas Gage also star. (THR)

Walls LaNier was the youngest of the nine Black students who were the first to integrate Little Rock, Arkansas’ Central High School in 1957 after the landmark Supreme Court decision Brown vs. Board of Education ruled that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.”Vida creator Tanya Saracho has signed an overall deal with UCP. As well as allowing her to create her own content for television and podcasts, Saracho will also get to establish a lab and incubator program that — according to the press release — is meant “to nurture, amplify, guide, and empower intersectional Latinx voices.”Apple has ordered the series My Kind of Country, which it says will be a “ground-breaking global search for unconventional and extraordinary country music talent.” Producers include noted Southerner Reese Witherspoon’s production company, Hello Sunshine.
For starters, there are two areas where Episode IX is not looking like a champion. One is with critics who have been decidedly mixed on the film resulting in a 57% on the Tomatometer; the second-lowest of the nine-episode Saga ahead of just The Phantom Menace (53%.) The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi are amongst the top four with 93% 91%, respectively. Another that may buck the trend of Star Wars history is the direct performance of the sequels. The box office per each trilogy has followed a pretty specific pattern. The first film is a major blockbuster. The 1977 original became the highest-grossing film of all-time up until 1982’s E.T.. The Phantom Menace in 1999 was second only to Titanic on the all-time scale and The Force Awakens still currently holds the crown for the #1 film in domestic box office history. The second film in each trilogy then dipped. The Empire Strikes Back made 31.9% less. Attack of the Clones 34.6% and The Last Jedi 33.8%. But then Return of the Jedi made million more and Revenge of the Sith made million more. The Rise of Skywalker has already begun with a disadvantage opening with 5 million compared to The Last Jedi’s 0 million start.But then consider where The Rise of Skywalker already has staked out in lists. It is the 12th highest opening in history (and the 3rd highest in December behind the previous two Star Wars.) It had the 5th best total in Thursday previews with million behind Episodes VII VIII as well as the final Avengers and Harry Potter films and 6th highest Friday opening ever (which includes Thurs previews) with Infinity War being in that mix. Word-of-mouth will now determine if those rankings remain consistent the next few weeks. That film’s 10-day total was the 4th best at the time (7th best currently), it still has the 4th best 17- -24-day total ever and remains the 8th highest-grossing domestic film of all-time and 13th all-time worldwide with .33 billion.The Rise of Skywalker should hit the billion mark. (It is over 4 million worldwide in 3.5 days.) Rogue One opened to 5 million and reached 0 million so that milestone right now is also likely to make ROS just the 15th film ever to achieve that goal. They’ve already achieved that globally. 0 million is likely the goal Disney and Lucasfilm would have wanted to hit domestically, but that now seems quite out of reach. The Last Jedi was down to .7 million in its 4th weekend and that could be the one (Jan. 10-12, 2020) where ROS relinquishes its #1 spot to perhaps the expansion of Sam Mendes’ WWI film, 1917.Rotten Returns: Eldritch Horror Cats Scratched At Box OfficeAfter months of sniping at its first trailer and a week of critical lambasting, Tom Hooper’s adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats (.5 million) appears to be an immediate bust. Conservatively the film is budgeted at million to as much as million (the number could be even higher) so any single digit opening is going to cause concern for those who bankrolled it. They may be looking at those who ponied up the million to make The Greatest Showman two years ago when it started with just an .8 million opening weekend after a .5 million lead-in from its Wednesday Christmas opening. They certainly sighed relief when it went on to gross over 4 million. Hooper’s backers may be coughing up hairballs. Cats does not likely have a 19x multiple. That is just a ,923 per-theater-average which puts it in the category of From Justin to Kelly (,357 PTA) and Newsies (,008 PTA). The Greatest Showman also had just a ,929 PTA that opening weekend, but word-of-mouth boosted that number and it did not dip lower until its eighth week. Sweeney Todd and 2004’s The Phantom of the Opera managed to get themselves over million, so maybe there is still a Christmas miracle for the critically-lambasted (19%) effort, even as a goof or a dare. Either way, we are likely to not see a big-screen version of Starlight Express anytime soon.The Top 10 and Beyond: Jumanji Softening, Bombshell Near-BombsIn these times as one should expect moviegoers do not exactly want a mix of politics with their eggnog. Last year’s Vice made over million, but that was bolstered a bit by its awards run and was ultimately more then than now. Despite lining up critically with Vice’s 66%, the 65%-rated Bombshell did not turn too many heads in theaters this weekend. Starting with million and expanding into 1,480 theaters, Jay Roach’s film about the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News, made .8 million. That is just a ,429 per-theater-average compared to Vice’s ,181 in 2,442 theaters in its first weekend. But that was also after its .9 million three day headstart opening on Christmas through Dec. 27. Bombshell debuted with a solid 9,157 in four theaters last week but could fade much faster than Adam McKay’s film.Last week’s short-lived #1, Jumanji: The Next Level, became the 23rd film to open in December and gross 0 million in its first ten days. Marley and Me is the only film on that list to fail to reach 0 million. (It grossed 3.15 million.) On the other hand Marley (which was a Christmas Day release) grossed .26 million in its second weekend. The Next Level fell 56% to million which is the second lowest on that list of 23. The only December films since 1985 to gross less than million in their second weekend and reach 0 million were 2005’s King Kong and Alvin and the Chipmunks. So it is possible Jumanji is fading faster than we may have expected. It is up to 2 million worldwide.Disney’s Frozen II rose to over 6 million this weekend. That is the 18th best total ever after 31 days of release and is still million ahead of the pace of all-time November opening champ, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, in that period and had a fifth weekend around million better. So with solid daily numbers over the Christmas vacation
In 2011, HBO’s Game of Thrones, the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s popular A Song of Ice and Fire book series, was unleashed upon the seven continents with the 100% Tomatometer-rated episode “Winter Is Coming.” This episode was written by showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff and directed by HBO vet Tim Van Patten, who set the chessboard for subsequent seasons as they introduced dozens of characters who would eventually be battling ice zombies, traveling between continents, and taking part in some horrifying weddings.In the world of Game of Thrones, there is a thin line between characters being good and bad. The same can be said for the current 67 episodes: 66 of them are Fresh, 21 have 100% Tomatometer scores, and the rest mostly fall into the 90-100% Tomatometer range. With the overall 67-episode average at 94.2%, we wanted to know what factors contribute to making an episode truly rōvēgrie (High Valyrian for “great”) at 95% or more — as opposed to just really, really good.In an effort to figure out what makes up the best possible episode of GoT, we channeled our inner Maester and consulted our local Three-Eyed Raven to guide us through our research, and now that our watch has ended, we’ve identified some patterns and trends that are important to crafting the perfect episode.Read on, but beware: Spoilers will be flowing like wine at a party thrown by Tyrion Lannister.Season 1 Is the Best(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Season 1 averages a 98.1% score on the Tomatometer, making it the highest-scoring season. It’s followed by season 4 (97%), season 2 (96.7%), season 3 (93.2%), season 6 (92.6%), season 7 (91.6%) and season 5 (90.1%). Season 7 is also the only season without a 100%-rated episode.Fourth Episodes Have the Highest Critical Rating(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Four is the lucky number in the GoT world, with fourth episodes averaging a 98.4% Tomatometer score. Three of the seven fourth episodes to date have 100% Tomatometer scores, with season 2’s “Garden of Bones” (96%), season 4’s “Oathkeeper” (98%), season 5 s Sons of the Harpy (98%), and season 7’s “The Spoils of War” (97%) coming close. We noticed while reading the fourth-episode reviews on Rotten Tomatoes that the following phrases appeared frequently: “cruising along,” “things are picking up speed again,” and “this episode moved the plot forward more than the previous three combined,” suggesting that critics must appreciate the pacing of these episodes, which may be one explanation why fourth episodes have the highest Tomatometer average.It’s worth noting that the only episode of seasons 6 and 7 to receive a 100% Tomatometer score is “Book of the Stranger” (season 6, episode 4). The episode was hailed as “Game of Thrones at its best” because it “got down to business” and featured Daenerys walking through fire and emerging naked, with hair and flesh perfectly untouched by the flame. The character similarly survived a massive fire in the 100%-rated season 1 finale, “Fire and Blood,” as well — with dragons no less.Which grouping of episodes have the lowest Tomatometer average? The average for sixth episodes is 86.4%, which, in the GoT world, is considered almost Rotten.Massive Battles Are Great (As Long as Major Characters Win — Or Lose, but Still Live)(Photo by HBO)In anticipation of the epic battles involving zombie dragons and massive armies that will surely occur in season 8, we looked at the highest rated battle episodes from prior seasons.“Blackwater” (100%; season 2, episode 9), “The Rains of Castamere” (100%; season 3, episode 9), and “Hardhome” (100%; season 5, episode 8) are perfect examples of episodes delivering massive battles that feature supposed heroes losing and major characters surviving to fight another day. In true GoT style, many supporting characters are slaughtered (R.I.P., Karsi). But despite losing the battle, characters like Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister are kept on the chessboard to fight another day.In the show’s other battle-heavy episodes — including “The Watchers on the Wall” (91%; season 4, episode 9), “The Dance of Dragons” (89%; season 5, episode 9), “Battle of the Bastards” (98%; season 6, episode 9), “Stormborn” (98%; season 7, episode 2), and “The Spoils of War” (96%; season 7, episode 4) — the hero was victorious and secondary characters (Ygritte, Rickon Stark, a couple of Sand Snakes) were killed.There is, of course, an exception to the rule: dragons.Season 3 s fourth episode And Now His Watch Has Ended was the first in which the dragons took part in the fight — in this case, with the Unsullied against their former masters. Daenerys won the day, and the episode scored 100%. Similarly, season 7 s fourth episode, The Spoils of War, in which Daenerys took Drogon out to meet the Lannister army, scored a very high 97%. But in the same season s sixth episode, “Beyond the Wall” (82%; season 7, episode 6), the Night King killed Viserion, and the episode scored an 84% — he was resurrected(ish), but dead and mobile is still mostly dead. It was a Night King victory.It’s worth noting that director Miguel Sapochnik, who helmed both “Hardhome” and “Battle of the Bastards,” will be back to direct two episodes of season 8. For the sake of the Tomatometer score, the major characters will survive any new battle scenes (even if they lose) and there are no more dragon deaths!Related: Everything We Know About Game of Thrones Season 8”What Is the Ideal Number of Locations?(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Each episode of GoT features an average of five locations, and it’s interesting to note that GoT is at its best when episodes are either scaled back to one or two locations — including “Blackwater,” “The Watchers on the Wall,” and “Battle of the Bastards,” averaging 97.3% — or spread to seven or more locations — like the excellent “The Pointy End” (100%; season 1, episode 8) or “Book of the Stranger” (100%; season 6, episode 4), averaging 94.4%. This is good news for season 8, which will bring dozens of characters from many locations together so they can battle the Night King (and his growing horde of undead warriors). We’re thinking the first few episodes will take place all over the Seven Kingdoms until the final showdown, which should take place on a massive centralized battlefield. Or a massive showdown will occur in the first few episodes, and the survivors will then fight skirmishes all over Westeros in the final episodes as wights overrun castle after castle and the Night King heads to King s Landing to teach Cersei some manners. This is Game of Thrones — anything can happen.Massive Weddings = 100% Tomatometer Scores(Photo by HBO)Five of seven GoT episodes featuring important weddings have 100% Tomatometer scores. What do these episodes have in common? They feature very expensive weddings that take place in front of large crowds. Episodes like “The Rains of Castamere,” “The Lion and the Rose” (season 4, episode 2), and “Winter Is Coming” (season 1, episode 1) go BIG with their weddings that end horribly for some.“Valar Morghulis” (91%; season 2, episode 10) and
Documentary Feels Good Man looks at the how cartoonist Matt Furie’s drawing of a smiling green frog unintentionally became a symbol for hate on the Internet.“This is something that has never happened before,” director Arthur Jones told journalists. “The Anti-Defamation League never has declared a meme a hate symbol before. It has never declared a copyrighted character a hate symbol before.”He says it was “a process” for Furie, who participated in the film, “to figure out how to handle this. He tried to handle that via his artistic community first. Then he tried to find a set of lawyers to collaborate with to enforce the copyright in a way that he felt was right for him. While he s doing this, he s an artist; he s starting a family — there s a lot of stuff going on.”Feels Good Man will air on October 19 as part of PBS’ Independent Lens series.Coming to You from the Bat Cave …(Photo by National Geographic)Journalists caught glimpses of lots of celebrities’ houses through this all-virtual press tour. But only one panel streamed from inside a bat cave: bat scientist Kendra Phelps and epidemiologist Chris Golden introduced us to some new friends while speaking on the panel for National Geographic’s upcoming documentary, Virus Hunters.Airing November 1 to be a companion piece to that month s issue of the magazine, the special will tell “the stories of those heroic experts on the frontlines who are racing to identify the chain of events that could cause the next global pandemic,” said Nat Geo Senior Vice President of Communications Chris Albert, who introduced the panel.“Virus Hunters will aim to offer solutions, and some of those could include the work that Kendra and Jim [Desmond, a fellow panelist and a wildlife veterinarian] are doing where there is monitoring and surveillance of what is actually unfolding naturally within ecosystems,” Golden said. “I think it will beg the question of further policy- and decision-making that would lean on us to really view conservation as an important tool for public-health interventions.”
澳门捕鱼王网站 By 1994, the video games Street Fighter (1987) and Street Fighter II (1991) had already sold over 10 million copies on the Super NES and Sega Genesis game systems. Street Fighter II in particular became a worldwide smash hit, and Capcom, its creator and publisher, wanted to capitalize on its success by adapting it into a film. The problem is, they wanted the movie to be written, location-scouted, cast, filmed, edited, and marketed in the span of one year (which is insane), so it could be released in time for Christmas in 1994.In an unconventional move, they hired prolific screenwriter Steven E. de Souza (48 Hrs, Die Hard, Commando, The Running Man), a first-time feature film director who came up with the idea for the story during an all-night writing session, to helm a -million budgeted James Bond-style action film about a Warlord threatening world destruction and the good guys who thwart him. What followed was a year of script rewrites, large explosions, scorching temperatures, reshoots, production delays, and a limited budget due to the casting of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Raul Julia.It’s a miracle that Street Fighter actually makes any sense, and it s perhaps more surprising that, even after second, third, and fourth viewings, it s still a lot of fun. Though it’s full of unremarkable street fights and stealth boats that aren’t very stealthy, it is in no way self conscious (“All I want to do is rule the world; is that so much to ask?”), and it features a legitimately great performance by Raul Julia. Here are five reasons why we love Street Fighter and aren’t afraid to admit it.It s A Much Better Movie than Its Reputation Implies(Photo by Universal)Skimming through the reviews for the 11% Tomatometer-rated Street Fighter, you’re likely to read things like, “It’s an empty exercise in hyper-stimulation,” and it’s “a picture only an arcade junkie could cheer.” On the surface, Street Fighter may feel like an “empty exercise,” but upon closer inspection, it s clear that de Souza, cinematographer William Frakin (Rosemary’s Baby, Tombstone, Bullitt), costume designer Deborah Kramer, and production designer William Creber (Towering Inferno, The Poseidon Adventure) did their best to create an interesting world, full of cheeky PA announcements (What do you do when a Bison trooper throws a grenade at your face? Pick it up, pull the pin and throw it right back at him), massive sets, and production design that is legitimately funny.In the Blu-ray commentary, de Souza mentions several times that “it’s clearly supposed to be funny,” and the evidence is plain as day, especially when you look at the private sanctum of General M. Bison (Raul Julia). Bison is a megalomaniac who plans to create a Bisonopolis with expansive food courts, Bison swag, and towering skyscrapers with slanted roofs. In his private room, the fireplace and the swizzle sticks for his mixed drinks have Bison logos, and there’s an odd clown painting that must have been painted by Bison himself (and that fans wish they could own). Watch this clip, and look closely at everything on display; the production design is pretty inspired, and yeah, we wouldn t mind owning that massive portrait of Bison on a horse, either.Street Fighter wasn’t the movie audiences were expecting (zero Hadoukens ), but if you can get past that, you’ll have a blast. Go back and listen to the weird PA announcements, pay attention to the one-liners, marvel at all the Bison tchotchkes, and try not to crack a smile.The Convoluted Plot Is Part of Its Charm(Photo by ©Universal courtesy Everett Collection)Early on in the pre-production phase in 1993, the Capcom folks and de Souza decided they didn’t want to make a simple fighting movie in the vein of Bloodsport, The Quest, or Lionheart (all JCVD movies, by the way). In a bout of naiveté, de Souza originally chose to include only seven characters from the game in the script, which would allow him to put more focus on each one but meant at least 10 of the video game s other characters would be excluded. Capcom understandably didn t want to exclude any of the characters, because they were running a multi-billion dollar empire capable of selling mass quantities of merchandise, and more characters = more money-making opportunities.Throughout the writing process, as de Souza was forced to add more and more characters, the script quickly got out of hand. Each new addition comes with a new subplot, and the film does its best to bring everyone together. Ryu (Byron Mann) and Ken (Damian Chapa) are huckster arms dealers who team up with Colonel Guile (Van Damme), Cammy (Kylie Minogue), and T-Hawk (Gregg Rainwater). Sagat (Wes Studi) and Vega (Jay Tavare) are real arms dealers who also run an underground fight club, while Dhalsim (Roshan Seth) is a doctor who creates super soldiers against his will, one of whom is Blanka (Robert Mammone). Dee-Jay (Miguel A. Núñez Jr.) and Zangief (Andrew Bryniarski) are cheeky henchmen who work for Bison (Julia). Chun-Li (Ming-na Wen), Balrog (Grand L. Bush), and E. Honda (Peter Tuiasosoppo) are reporters (and fighting legends) who want revenge by working their way up through various media outlets (it’s weird). During their interactions, there are staged deaths (Guile “dies” three times), Allied Nation bureaucracy subplots, billion ransoms, enjoyable torture, food court discussions, a henchmen wage debate, and at least five speeches.Normally, including 45 subplots in a video game adaptation would be a horrible idea, but here, it makes Street Fighter all the more endearing. It Was Tuesday. Before we get into one of the greatest lines in the history of cinema (it is, admit it), we want to point out that Raul Julia delivers it while holding two mixed drinks with orange garnishes and wearing a tailored silk robe and a nighttime hat (which means he has a daytime hat). The entire setup is silly, yet Julia nails the absurdity of the moment with a knowing confidence that only an actor of his caliber could muster. Also, his performance becomes infinitely more awesome when you consider he had recently undergone intensive treatment and surgery for stomach cancer, and he took the role because his kids loved the game.Julia makes a meal of each syllable, and the slight smile on his face proves he’s in on the absurdity around him. After Chun Li unleashes a passionate speech about how Bison killed her father when he was an up-and-coming drug czar, he replies with one of the greatest burns in cinema history: For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday. It belongs on the Mount Rushmore of underappreciated lines, right alongside Skeletor’s “loneliness of evil” moment in Masters of the Universe and Andrew Scott’s “It’s like kick ass or kiss ass, and I’m busting heads” monologue in Universal Soldier.Jean-Claude Van Damme s Lines are Pure, Cheesy Gold(Photo by Universal)Prior to Street Fighter, Jean-Claude Van Damme was known for action-heavy performances that put more emphasis on punches, splits, and training montages than dialogue. In movies like Kickboxer, Bloodsport, Cyborg, Lionheart, Universal Soldier, and Hard Target, JCVD’s physicality and snake punching skills do most of the acting. However, since the screenplay for Street Fighter was written by de Souza, the man who wrote the quip-heavy Commando ( Let off some steam, Bennett. ) and The Running Man (“Killian, here’s your Subzero, now plain zero.”), Van Damme was asked to make speeches, drop one-liners, and do the best he could with de Souza’s dialogue and very little preparation time (which may or may not have been JCVD’s fault).The Muscles from Brussels” ventured a bit outside his comfort zone, and he did an admirable job unleashing all the ridiculous dialogue. For instance, he nailed his big “Who wants to go with me?” speech in one take, but he also says “This is the collection agency, Bison. Your ass is six months overdue, and it’s mine,” with a straight face.Need more proof? Here are some of his best lines:Guile: Four years of ROTC for this s t!Bison: You have made me a very happy man.Guile: And next, I ll make you a dead one.Guile: I’m okay; I’m just half dead.Cammy: And Bison?Guile: All dead.Needless to say, de Souza didn’t win an Academy Award for his screenplay, but he gave the world an immensely quotable video game adaptation, and we re all better for it.The Final Moments Are EpicAfter Bison has been defeated and Guile comes back from the dead (again), the remaining characters celebrate their victory by busting out variations of their popular poses from the video game. It’s an easter egg moment for fans of the game, and it highlights the international cast, which nowadays feels refreshing.Shortly before they pose and break the fourth wall, though, a temple explodes in front of them. In a wonderful Street Fighter oral history done by The Guardian, the first assistant director of the second unit, Keith Haygate, admitted that only a quarter of the temple was supposed to explode. However, the whole thing blew up and destroyed 0,000 worth of scaffolding and styrofoam that was built over four acres. The cheeky posing and the unexpectedly massive explosion define the movie, because it’s a knowingly tongue-in-cheek film that had an explosive production. The film was rushed, and it suffered a number of setbacks, but it still pulled in 0 million worldwide on a million budget. Street Fighter will never be mistaken as quality cinema, but it s a lot of fun, and you shouldn’t feel guilty about loving it.What is your favorite Street Fighter moment?
