Current Palme d’Or frontrunners Portrait of a Girl on Fire, Pain Glory, and Les Misérables got some new competition late Tuesday night with premiere of Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite (2019) 98%. The Korean director’s follow-up to 2016’s Okja is an instant critical darling that earned rapturous bursts of applause not just at the end of its critics’ screening, but also in the middle of it, according to Vulture. Jessica Kiang of Variety called Bong’s social thriller Roaringly furious, because [its] target is so deserving…Parasite is a tick fat with the bitter blood of class rage. With just one day of competition films left before the closing night ceremony, most of the pundits agree one of the favorites above will walk away with the top prize – well unless Tarantino can pull off a shocker with Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.No voice for Sharon Tate? Tarantino and Robbie push back.Wednesday, May 22: The buzz and spectacle of the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood premiere undoubtedly stole some attention away from Parasite’s impressive debut: two days after the fictionalized retelling of the Manson Family murders debuted, it s still dominating the festival headlines. Reports broke late on Tuesday night that hundreds of ticket holders were turned away from the premiere; as some had paid as much as ,200 to secure one ticket to the starry event, and many members of the press were among those turned away, the festival was forced to issue an apology for the mixup. Then Wednesday afternoon Tarantino continued to make headlines during a press conference when he rejected the hypothesis of a question that said Margot Robbie had limited dialogue portraying the Manson Family murder victim, Sharon Tate. The Aussie actress, however, was quick to counter the assumption saying, I think the moments I was on screen gave a moment to honor Sharon, I think the tragedy was the loss of innocence. To show the wonderful sides of her could be done without speaking. I did feel like I got a lot of time to explore the character without dialogue, which is an interesting thing. Rarely do I get an opportunity to spend so much time on my own as a character.

In Hollywood (2019) 85%, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie. Before the curtains parted for the screening of the Hollywood drama that s loosely based on the Manson Family s murder of Sharon Tate and others, Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Frémaux reiterated (in English and French) Tarantino s plea to avoid spoilers when discussing the film. It s debatable if such precautions were needed, but as of yet, most critics are keeping the key plot points out of reviews. Angeleno Tarantino was six years old when the Manson Murders rocked Hollywood and the nation, and critics are calling Once Upon A Time in Hollywood a deeply personal and violent ode to the summer of 69. While 1960s Hollywood played out on the screen, today s Hollywood looked: Timothée Chalamet, Chloe Sevigny, Diego Luna, Xavier Dolan, Tilda Swinton, Dakota and Elle Fanning, Chris Tucker, and Adrien Brody were all spotted at the premiere. Tarantino s close friend and Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez was also on hand to congratulate and celebrate with cast and crew and gave us his one-word review: Outstanding! After enjoying a six-minute standing ovation at the premiere, Pitt, DiCaprio, and Tarantino headed to a glitzy after-party at the JW Marriott joined by most of the star power on the Rivera. During the party, Tarantino chatted with guests about film, Cannes memories, and was in high spirits. When we caught up with him, we asked if he wanted to know the Tomatometer score for the film (which we had just revealed), and he quickly recoiled as if we were about to shout a spoiler to his film. Oh God, no! he said, laughing. If they re bad I wanna enjoy my night, and if they re good, it s a gift. A gift I will happily unwrap – tomorrow. Tarantino Asks Viewers Not to Spoil the Hollywood EndgameMonday, May 20: Everyone is worried about spoilers these days – even legendary director Quentin Tarantino. After a script for The Hateful Eight leaked before production began, forcing the director to make significant changes, Tarantino is taking no chances with his latest film. Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) 85%, the A-lister–stuffed 60s period feature starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie, premieres Tuesday and has been shrouded in mystery. Little is known of the plot, save that it will feature numerous late 60 s icons such as Bruce Lee, Steve McQueen, Sharon Tate, and her infamous murderer Charles Manson. Speaking to Rotten Tomatoes to promote his film The Mustang earlier in the year, costar Bruce Dern said, “All I can say is — this is me telling you — he’s a magician, because in this movie, he did something mad. It’s probably the most unique endeavor I’ve seen a director undertake and do. Without ruining the movie for you — I can’t tell you what that is, but the minute you get to see it, you will say, ‘Bruce Dern is absolutely right. ” Hoping to keep the movie s surprises under wraps as long as possible, Tarantino posted an open letter asking those that see it first to be mindful of spoilers, adding, The cast and crew have worked so hard to create something original, and I only ask that everyone avoids revealing anything that would prevent later audiences from experiencing the film in the same way. Rotten Tomatoes has secured a coveted ticket to the glamorous premiere, so check back here on Tuesday for the first reviews and a detailed recounting of the star-studded premiere and afterparty.Check out Everything We Know About Once Upon a Time In Hollywood
This morning the Writer s Guild of America announced the nominees for outstanding screenwriting in 2021.

Read on for the full list of the Writers Guild of America s Television and Film nominees.Are you as obsessed with awards as we are? Check out our Awards Leaderboard for 2019/2020.BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY Living With Yourself star Paul Rudd was tested by having to act opposite himself in the new Netflix comedy. One of the main challenges Rudd faced in playing both versions of Miles, a man who must confront his clone when they meet, was coming up with the actual method of getting in front of the camera and doing it. I would record both parts as audio and I would play the character that was driving the scene, the Marvel Avenger told reporters at the series premiere in Hollywood. That one, I would film first and I would listen to myself in that scene. [ ] I d look at the tape we had made, and study what I had done, and then I would just be the other guy and try to act opposite that and those movements. It was a bit frantic, to say the least. The show, from former Daily Show writer Timothy Greenberg and now Certified Fresh on the Tomatometer, tells the story of Miles, a middle-aged man struggling with the everyday stresses of life. The mundane-ness of it all, mixed with personal and professional pressures, leads Miles to an odd spa — a referral by his co-worker Dan (Desmin Borges) — which provides a mysterious service that touts the rejuvenation of one s mind and body.(Photo by Netflix)In a world where cutting-edge, quirky self-improvement trends seem to cloud the marketplace, this pricey trip — Miles spends ,000 in cash to fix his life — sounds plausible enough. That is, of course, until he wakes up in a freshly dug grave, wrapped in plastic, in the middle of the forest, only to discover another version of himself at home getting cozy with his wife, Kate (Aisling Bea).While, at first glance, Living With Yourself may be a bit reminiscent of other mishap-riddled clone-themed comedies like the Michael Keaton–starrer Multiplicity, the Netflix series strives for more than just the expected laughs. The eight-episode season delves into thought-provoking concepts like free will, one s own pursuit of happiness, and the rather existential question: Am I a good person? What if there were another you? Greenberg, who also acts as the show s executive producer and showrunner, told Rotten Tomatoes. And what if that other you was the better version of yourself? That simple question is the crux of the story, and one that was prompted by Greenberg’s recurring childhood nightmare. I m sitting at the dining room table and the door would open and there was another me standing there, he explains. My family would be around, and they d be laughing and think it was funny, but I would be terrified. (Photo by Netflix)And once Greenberg got older and created his own family, the fear evolved into something that may touch home for many viewers. I started being more concerned about what kind of person I was, in general, but also with [my wife and kids], he continues. Why am I sometimes a better or worse version of myself? That became, sort of, a daily concern of mine. After Jon Stewart announced his exit from The Daily Show, Greenberg faced a career conundrum that had him panicked about his next step. I realized I could take this sort of daily concern of how I self-analyze on a day-to-day basis and marry that to these more fantastical elements of, What if there were another you? And What if that other you was the better version of yourself,' he said.Rudd was always at the top of the list of talent Greenberg wanted to play the lead roles, and while Greenberg never dreamed the Marvel Avenger would be interested in the job, Rudd explained that the combination of the writing and the challenge of playing two parts drew him to the series. Normally it seems, with shows, there are one or two episodes written and then the rest is like a one or two-page description of where they re going to take it, Rudd said. This was unique in that all of them were written. And they were all written by one person. So the point of view was very clear. I thought they were funny, inventive, and I loved what it was kind of talking about: this weird, existential dilemma. (Photo by Eric Liebowitz/Netflix)Living With Yourself is presented with a dash of science fiction, but the series doesn’t rely on grandiose special effects to help build its world; in fact, the genre elements that heighten the story are told through the writing and nuanced performances Rudd delivers as these two different versions of himself. There s no putting Paul s face over another person s body or anything like that, co-star Aisling Bea said. It s all Paul doing two parts and remembering where he was. It s like a copied and pasted thing — but there s a surprising not amount of special effects. And there s a lot of Paul s acting doing it. Some days, the actor would have to switch back and forth between both characters multiple times, a balancing act that was about as exhausting as it sounds, the actor confirmed. Much of Rudd’s recent experience is in the movie-making world with longer production schedules. On the series, they had roughly three months to shoot what equates to essentially a four-hour movie.Oscar-nominated husband-and-wife directing duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine) helm the entire first season. The perspective that this is really one long movie helped lure them away from the arthouse movie-making they re known for. What was sent to us was like eight episodes, Faris said. So, it kind of felt like reading a movie script. And the idea that we could direct all of them made it feel more like a transition from doing a film into episodic, so we didn t really think of it as episodic television. That was really fun, she continued. But the way the show plays with structure and time made it really different from anything we ve ever done. The episodes sort of change perspective and, you know, go back in time and repeat things. (Photo by Eric Liebowitz/Netflix)Faris and Dayton agreed that they were glad for the opportunity to work with Rudd, the star of Ant-Man and the Wasp. I don t know how this would have been possible without Paul, Faris adds. Watching him was a constant marvel — sorry, had to say it. Living With Yourself is now streaming on Netflix. Like this?

And with the second episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the picture of the post-Blip world is coming more clearly into focus. Governments are destabilized, certain parts of the world experienced a taste of peace while half its population was gone, and, seemingly, the US had a plan for Captain America.The episode also offered a number of introductions which seem to lead the mystery away from Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl) and toward an unexpected enemy. So let s dive in and glean what we can from the program s latest episode and what a new truth might mean for Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie).Couples Therapy, and Shipping Sam and Bucky(Photo by © Marvel Studios 2021)But before we get into the geopolitical aspects, let s give a few moments to Sam and Bucky s (Sebastian Stan) relationship. Yes, it is totally hetero and totally platonic, but it is interesting the way the Captain America strand of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has used film romance dynamics to charge scenes between Steve (Chris Evans) and his partners.Going by a certain reading of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Bucky is very much Steve s ex while Sam is, essentially, the new boyfriend. By utilizing rom-com dynamics, the film created a great shorthand to understand the emotions involved. And once we get to Bucky and Sam sitting in that old Volkswagen in Captain America: Civil War, their rivalry for Steve s friendship proved to be a great source for comedy. That dynamic only grows stronger as events position them into being a couple.Or, at least a couple in terms of the way the Captain America movies engaged with the romance tropes. Dr. Raynor s (Amy Aquino) choice to immediately employ couples therapy tactics on them not only lampshades that aspect of the dynamic, but plays into the characters discomfort with being a de facto couple. Also, it once again proved to be wildly funny as both Mackie and Stan play off of each other in a truly great way. Whether their dynamic is purely Odd Couple or something more just depends on how intensely you ship them.But all their discomfort does lead to one key point about Bucky: he s worried Steve was wrong about his ability to change. Presumably, this will be Bucky s objective for the rest of the season.Sam Learns About The TruthJoel MearesIn 2003, Marvel released a series called The Truth: Red, White Black. Written by Robert Morales with art from Kyle Baker, it told the story of a parallel Super Soldier program conducted on Black servicemen during World War II. Much like the real-life Tuskegee Experiments, it was conducted under false pretenses and without the explicit consent of the men involved. In the Marvel Universe, the experiment led to the deaths of at least 299 men. The one survivor, Isaiah Bradley, wound up with the full benefits of the Super Soldier Serum. Unfortunately, the wider US government was not so accepting of a Black Captain America and Isaiah was sentenced to life in prison after he went AWOL to destroy a Nazi Super Soldier lab. He is later pardoned and released, but exists as a legend known widely to Black Americans, but to few outside that community.And thanks to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, he s now a part of the MCU in the form of the great Carl Lumbly. His story has been altered somewhat – he is now a Korean War vet – but we think that context is more powerful for the MCU as the mid-20th Century is something of a blank slate for Marvel to work with. On a purely historical front, it s amazing for any modern series to even acknowledge Korea. And by placing Isaiah s story closer to the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, the government s disgraceful treatment of him – locking him away for 30 years – becomes just that much starker. At no point during the movement was anyone even aware of Isaiah!Then there s the truth for Sam here: a Black Captain America came into existence in 1951 and only Bucky knew about him. That s a tough fact to process and an indication of what might ve happened had Sam just kept the shield for himself. It is pretty easy to imagine the government burying him (literally) and handing it to John Walker (Wyatt Russell).Considering how easy it was for those Baltimore Police to not recognize the Falcon, the people propping up Walker probably wouldn t have to work too hard to make Sam disappear.Flag Smashers And Power Brokers(Photo by © Marvel Studios 2021)Meanwhile, in Europe, we get a better idea of where the Flag-Smashers are coming from. In the wake of the Blip ending, a Global Repatriation Council was formed to help returning people reestablish their lives. According to Walker and Lemar Hoskins (Clé Bennett), this includes reactivating Social Security numbers (for US citizens), setting up healthcare options, and more. We also learn some of the people who were displaced now live in camps.But during the five years half the world s population was gone, people like Karli Morgenthau (Erin Kellyman) experienced a taste of a world without borders, worries of overpopulation, and (we assume) corporate autocracies besides Stark Industries. Reclaiming that version of the world is her stated fight and it s hard to argue with all her points. Some, though, are easier to combat as they sound eerily reminiscent of Thanos s grim calculus. How does one reclaim a world of only 3 billion people except by killing 3 billion undesirables ? That thinking can only lead to something awful. At the same time, the sense of community she seemingly clings to can be scaled to include the returnees – unless, of course, she believes all the world leaders who also returned would object to that.That ambiguity is baked into the character, of course, as she is partially based on Marvel Comics Flag-Smasher, Karl Morgenthau, a Swiss anti-nationalist who came into conflict with Captain America, The Punisher, and even the Red Skull. Though his intentions of a world without nationalistic superiority were noble, his preferred method to further his goal, terrorism, indicated a flaw in his thinking. Cap even told him as much.For the moment, we re going to assume Karli shares this flaw. But that s presuming her stated goal is true. Perhaps the Flag Smashers are just ruse. Her apparent association with Power Broker indicates a much more fluid morality.As the name implies, the Power Broker is a person of means who offers super abilities and assets for personal gain. Curiously, the first version of the character was introduced as a satire of the health and fitness craze emerging in the late 1970s. Some of his schemes revolved around a wrestling promotion for super-powered people. He also ran afoul of John Walker and Lemar Hoskins. But perhaps the most intriguing thing about the Power Broker is his long association with Dr. Karl Malus, a mad scientist interested in the creation and application of superpowers. Is it possible they are the source of the Super Soldier Serum powering the Flag Smashers?Malus previously appeared in the second season of Jessica Jones in the form of Callum Keith Rennie. There, he was one of the IGH scientists involved in the creation of Jessica s (Krysten Ritter) powers and her mother Alisa s (Janet McTeer) more problematic life. Malus presumably committed suicide when he blew up his lab, but as it is still unclear if the events of that series really happened in the MCU, the character could be in play. Or, at the very least, he could have perfected a stable serum variant for the Power Broker before his death.Well, presuming the Power Broker is the source of the serum Karli s using and the person hounding her via text messages. The story seems to be tying these things together, but it is possible they are separate things.Meanwhile, as Bucky notes, the arrival of a stable of Super Soldiers is a definite problem. If Karli got her hands on the serum, is there more out there? If it is in the hands of the Power Broker – for the moment, we re going to assume the series is using the nameless version of the character instead of Curtiss Jackson – they could unleash a terrible force on the world.Or a terrible force for Zemo to control. But we ll consider him more next week.Of Battlestars And U.S. Agents(Photo by © Marvel Studios 2021)As mentioned above, the episode also introduced Lemar Hoskins – aka Battlestar. The character has an interesting behind-the-scenes history which is relevant to the show s running themes. In preparation for John Walker to become Captain America in the comics in 1987, writer Mark Gruenwald decided he needed a Bucky of his own. Already established as a member of the Bold Urban Commandos (BUCs for short), he chose Lemar to become the fifth Bucky and appeared as such for a short while. Eventually, writer Dwayne McDuffie explained to him Buck is a derogatory term for African Americans originating from the days of slavery. The two agreed to rename him Battlestar and a story developed for Lemar to highlight the problem and switch to the new persona. The story also firmly established Lemar as Walker s partner instead of a sidekick.Considering the way The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has highlighted the treatment of Black superheroes thus far, we expect some of Battlestar s history will come into play across the remainder of the season. At the moment, he seems pretty happy to be part of the counterfeit Team Cap, but it is easy to imagine his status could change soon. In the moments we have with him so far, it is unclear if he is Walker s partner or sidekick. Clarifying that role will be key.Of course, some of that depends on what sort of man John Walker turns out to be. For the moment, he seems forthright, but that slight suggestion of territoriality in his last moments with Sam indicates he may not be as noble as Steve.Then again, has any man ever been as noble as Steve?The Falcon and the Winter Soldier premieres new episodes on Fridays on Disney+.On an Apple device?

Does February have you feeling lonely with its upcoming card-company holiday? Trust us when we say that Better Call Saul’s Saul Goodman, Kidding’s Mr. Pickles, Homeland’s Carrie Mathison, or Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Jake Piralta go down as easy as a box of chocolates. Or if you’re more into beards and other kinds of treats, High Maintenance’s delivery guy might be more your speed. Regardless, this month has 10 returning series worth your time and your bingeing. Manhunt 96% (Spectrum Originals)What it is: When it first premiered on Discovery in 2017, creators Andrew Sodroski, Jim Clemente, and Tony Gittelson’s Manhunt promised a factual, fuss-free deep-dive on the FBI’s investigation and ongoing search for the terrorist Ted Kaczynski (a.k.a. the Unabomber). What we got was absolutely engrossing cat-and-mouse action with little-known, truth-is-stranger-than-fiction twists along the way.Why you should watch it: Having switched from Discovery to Spectrum Originals’ streaming platform, the new installment of Manhunt again follows the FBI, this time as they search for the bomber behind the 1996 Atlanta Olympics attack and deal with the notorious controversy surrounding security guard Richard Jewell that followed. (Clint Eastwood s 2019 feature film Richard Jewell dealt with the same topic.) Season 2 premieres on February 3 on Spectrum.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 6 hours (for the first season)Brooklyn Nine-Nine 95% (NBC)What it is: This hit comedy series from creators Dan Goor and Michael Schur is a workplace sitcom featuring some very distinct personalities — the aloof and gregarious Detective Jake Peralta (Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg), his fictional precinct’s dry commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), and the rest of the motley crew of the Nine-Nine.Why you should watch it: We’ve seen fan-initiated primetime resuscitations before, but rarely do they happen as swiftly as Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s after its unceremonious cancellation at Fox. The online outcry had barely begun before Universal Television began shopping the sitcom around, and it was scooped up by NBC just a day later — with good reason. Now that we’re a season into that “reboot,” it’s clear the series should’ve never left in the first place. Season 7 premieres on February 6 on NBC.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 47 hours (for the first six seasons)The Sinner 90% (USA Network)What it is: This anthological crime thriller from creator and showrunner Derek Simonds (and executive producer Jessica Biel, who starred on season 1 and earned her first Emmy nomination for the performance) takes the traditional whodunit thriller and turns it on its head into a whydunit. We know the titular culprit from the get, but there are unknown layers as to why they committed the central crime. The series has been a huge hit for USA Network and follows different crimes each season. Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) is the thread that holds them all together. Why you should watch it: The Sinner is a spin on a classic trope, and it’s executed with top-notch acting, production, and nail-biting scripts. What’s not to love? Season 3 follows Matt Bomer and Chris Messina as college buddies with a dark, secretive past. A fatal tragedy upon their reunion brings Ambrose on the case. Catch up before its February 6 premiere.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 12 hours (for the first two seasons)High Maintenance 98% (HBO)What it is: From co-creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, High Maintenance began as a hit web series starring Sinclair as a traveling weed deliveryman living in New York City. HBO picked it up to series in 2016 and largely retained the comedy’s original format while simply making its episodes longer.Why you should watch it: While there are plenty of primetime programs that paint a great snippet of present-day NYC, few get the full picture the way High Maintenance does. That’s because each episode features various characters who — whether they’re hosting a swingers party, rebelling against their ultra-religious parents, or sitting home alone collecting cans of La Croix — are from such disparate walks of life that they end up inadvertently highlighting the similarities between so many dwellers of the concrete jungle. (And we promise those similarities go beyond enjoying the green.) Season 4 premieres on February 7 on HBO.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, HBO Now, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 12.5 hours (for the first three seasons)Homeland 85% (Showtime)What it is: Homeland has gone a lot of places — some better than others — over the course of its twisty seven seasons, but it all started with the Emmy-winning combination of Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes). The former has just returned from Iraq after being missing in action; the latter suspects that his allegiances have been turned to the enemy. Let the cat-and-mouse games begin.Why you should watch it: Homeland — led by a career-best Danes as an agent with bipolar disorder — is a masterclass in taut, edge-of-your-seat spy drama. Even when the series goes off the deep end, Danes has you simultaneously rooting for her and holding your breath. Season 8 premieres on February 9 on Showtime.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 60 hours (for the first seven seasons)Kidding 88% (Showtime)What it is: Kidding follows a Mr. Rogers–esque children’s show host named Mr. Pickles through a divorce and into a downward, existential spiral. But at its heart, it’s just about a kindhearted guy trying to find himself while piecing his life back together.Why you should watch it: Something about filmmaker Michel Gondry and star Jim Carrey’s creative relationship sparks magic; Kidding doesn’t just mark a grand reunion of the two artists after 15 years, but it features Carrey’s best dramatically-tinged performance since their shared Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Add in the auteur’s trademark visual flare, and Kidding will win just about anyone over. Season 2 premieres February 9 on Showtime.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, MicrosoftCommitment: Approx. 5 hours (for the first season)Narcos 89% and Narcos: Mexico 85% (Netflix)What it is: Critically-acclaimed Spanish- and English-language Netflix original started with Narcos, taking a closer look at formidable and feared Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura) and his criminal contemporaries. In 2018, Netflix launched companion series Narcos: Mexico – originally intended as season 4 of the original show – which dove into the roots of the modern drug war and the true-story rise of the cocaine trade led by the Guadalajara cartel in the 1980s. Why you should watch it: The Narcos franchise is riveting and entertaining television, boasting fine performances and equally engaging scripts — not to mention a little-seen precision in documenting the history of the drug trade that still plagues the world today. In the Mexico seasons, Michael Peña stars as DEA agent Kiki Camarena alongside Diego Luna as cartel leader Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo. Narcos: Mexico season 2 premieres February 13 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 35 hours (25.8 for three seasons of Narcos and 8.5 hours for season 1 of Narcos: Mexico)Outlander 89% (Starz)What it is: Based on the hit fantasy novel series from author Diana Gabaldon, Outlander is the story of World War II nurse Claire (Caitriona Balfe), who is inexplicably transported back in time to 18th-century Scotland and quickly swept up in the drama and romance of Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) — despite being a married woman in her own time to Frank (Tobias Menzies).Why you should watch it: There’s little to dislike about this lavish Starz series. Expertly-crafted performances and, ahem, titillating character arcs have consumed audiences in the kind of “who will she choose” debate unseen since Twi-hards of yore. This series, from Battlestar Galactica reboot mastermind Ronald D. Moore, has the scripts, direction, and overall production value worth fawning over, too. Season 5 premieres on February 16 on Starz.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 55 hours (for the first four seasons)Better Call Saul 98% (AMC)What it is: Ever wonder how, exactly, Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman got to be so darn slimy? AMC’s acclaimed spin-off, Better Call Saul, is here to help. The companion series satisfyingly builds on the original Vince Gilligan drama, while also coherently etching an identity of its own for viewers of all proclivities.Why you should watch it: The series takes a character we think we know — the Saul Goodman whom Breaking Bad’s Walter White eventually meets in that Albuquerque, New Mexico, strip mall — and breaks him down to his nuts and bolts, starting at Jimmy McGill. Played wonderfully by Bob Odenkirk in what could become his career-defining (certainly career-changing) role, Saul/Jimmy and his uneasy partnership with Jonathan Banks’ Mike Ehrmantraut make for must-watch hours for any lover of prestige TV, Breaking Bad die-hard or not. Season 5 premieres on February 23 on AMC.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 32 hours (for the first four seasons)Altered Carbon 75% (Netflix)What it is: Altered Carbon is a sci-fi epic for our time: it s often brutal and sometimes confusing. Set in a distant dystopian future in which an individual’s consciousness can be downloaded and stored digitally to be later uploaded into a new body, otherwise known as a “sleeve, life and death have little meaning in this world. But this advancement in technology allows only an elite and wealthy few to actually live their lives for hundreds of years, while those less fortunate only degrade, descending further and further into destitution.Why you should watch it: This Netflix adaptation of Richard K. Morgan’s acclaimed 2002 novel from creator Laeta Kalogridis received mixed reviews upon its 2018 premiere, but was a hit with genre fans new and old alike. While Joel Kinnaman was absolutely killer as the latest incarnation of the mysterious time-jumping hero Takeshi Kovacs, these new episodes give Takeshi Kovacs a new sleeve: Anthony Mackie. Season 2 premieres on February 27 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 8.5 hours (for the first season)Babylon Berlin (Netflix)What it is: A sexy look at a turbulent time, Babylon Berlin is a crime drama that unfolds during the Weimar Republic, a time of great transition and facing the rise of National Socialism. Party girl Greta (Liv Lisa Fries) pairs up with police detective Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch) when he uncovers and investigates an underground porn ring.Why you should watch it: Netflix brought the first two seasons of the lavish German series to U.S. audiences in 2017. Together, the seasons are Certified Fresh at 100% for painting a head-spinning tableau of corruption, drug dealing, and weapons trafficking that tests the young inspector s sense of loyalty and dedication to the truth. Season 3 launches on February 28 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 12 hoursLike this?

This week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Evil Dead Rise, Highlander, Jackass 4, and Wonka.This WEEK S TOP STORYAARON TAYLOR-JOHNSON TO STAR AS SPIDER-MAN VILLAIN KRAVEN THE HUNTER(Photo by Emma McIntyre/Getty Images)Generally, Marvel Studios has a rule about actors not playing more than one of their roles, except there are many exceptions, mostly due to the fact that not all of them are MCU movies. For example, the reasons former Human Torch actors Chris Evans and Michael B. Jordan were both able to star as Captain America and Killmonger in Black Panther, respectively, is that their Fantastic Four movies were under 20th Century Fox, not Marvel Studios itself. Marvel played around with this concept a little bit in WandaVision (Fresh at 91%), in which Wanda s brother Pietro (AKA Quicksilver) was recast as Evan Peters, who first played Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past (Certified Fresh at 90%) (again, a Fox film and not Marvel Studios itself). It was a cheeky switcheroo to pull, since the MCU s Quicksilver was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Avengers: Age of Ultron. With that in mind, Taylor-Johnson signed on this week to star in another Marvel movie, namely Kraven the Hunter, a solo movie about one of Spider-Man s oldest villains (August, 1964 to be precise), which Sony Pictures has scheduled for release on January 13, 2023. J.C. Chandor (All is Lost, Triple Frontier, A Most Violent Year) will direct the Kraven the Hunter movie, which is expected to be a standalone very much in the style of Venom (Rotten at 29%) and the upcoming Morbius (1/28/2022).Other Top Headlines1. TODD PHILLIPS OFFICIALLY WORKING ON SCREENPLAY TO JOKER SEQUEL(Photo by Niko Tavernise/©Warner Bros.)The DC Comics origin story Joker (Fresh at 68%) might have led to a satisfying conclusion, but the film also left a lot of the villain s story yet to be told. Warner Bros. moved quickly into development on a Joker sequel in late 2019, but the year-that-was-2020 may have slowed down how the sequel may have otherwise developed. This week, in a profile of various Hollywood lawyers, The Hollywood Reporter may have buried the lede, which is that Joker director and co-writer Todd Phillips is now officially signed to co-write the Joker sequel. That doesn t give us much more to work with, such as whether Phillips will return to direct or Joaquin Phoenix will return to star, but both are probably more likely than not. Warner Bros. has not currently scheduled the Joker sequel for release (but we can guess that it won t be before 2023 because WB/DC s 2022 slate is already packed).2. TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET IS YOUR NEW WONKA (Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection)Some classic characters are portrayed just once and seem to transcend generations (Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird), while others seem to be reimagined occasionally for new generations. Gene Wilder starred in the 1971 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (Certified Fresh at 90%), but then Johnny Depp took over the character in the 2005 remake Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Certified Fresh at 83%), and both movies have their fans. Warner Bros. and director Paul King (Paddington, Paddington 2) have been developing a prequel called Wonka for a while now, with the most recent news before this week being in January, when it was revealed that Warner Bros. was considering either Tom Holland (Marvel s Spider-Man) or their own Dune reboot star, Timothée Chalamet. Well, it s finally official: Timothée Chalamet will star in the prequel Wonka, which will reportedly feature several musical numbers that will require Chalamet to sing and dance on screen following several months of practice and preparation. Warner Bros. has scheduled Wonka for release on March 17, 2023. In the meantime, Chalamet is now filming another movie with his Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino. The film is called Bones All, and it s a horror film adapted from the 2015 novel by author Camille DeAngelis.3. HENRY CAVILL TO PROVE THERE CAN BE MORE THAN ONE HIGHLANDER (Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Henry Cavill is well on his way to being one of Hollywood s modern stars with several franchises on his resume. In addition to his movies as Superman, Cavill has also co-starred in Mission: Impossible Fallout, tried his hand at The Man from U.N.C.L.E., starred as Sherlock Holmes on Netflix (Enola Holmes), co-starred in new adaptations of The Count of Monte Cristo, Red Riding Hood, and Tristan Isolde, and is currently starring in Netflix s video game adaptation series The Witcher. We can now add another fantasy franchise to Cavill s filmography, as he is signed to take on the lead role in the Highlander reboot to be directed by Chad Stahelski (of John Wick and its sequels). The premise of the Highlander reboot isn t yet known, including whether Cavill will be playing one of the characters from the original or a completely new one.4. POP STAR RINA SAWAYAMA TO MAKE ACTING DEBUT IN JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 4 (Photo by David M. Benett/Getty Images)Like many things, filming of Keanu Reeves John Wick: Chapter 4 was delayed by COVID-19 from its original start date in 2020 to later this year, aiming for a release date of May 27, 2022. As is common with all of the John Wick movies, the details are being kept secret, but we now know Reeves will be joined by Japanese-British pop singer Riwa Sawayama in her feature film acting debut. Filming of John Wick: Chapter 4 is expected to take place in France, Germany, and Japan this summer, after which Sawayama will be starting a world tour. John Wick: Chapter 4 will be directed by Chad Stahelski, who is also developing the aforementioned Highlander reboot.5. EVIL DEAD RISE FRANCHISE REBOOT (AGAIN) COMING TO HBO MAX (Photo by ©New Line Cinema courtesy Everett Collection)The Evil Dead horror franchise is currently getting a little tricky to track. Bruce Campbell starred in the first three Evil Dead films, which included Army of Darkness (despite it not having Evil Dead in the title). Then, there was a fourth Evil Dead (Fresh at 63%) in 2013 that was basically a reboot, and that was followed by a Starz television series called Ash vs Evil Dead, which served as a sequel to the original films. Now, New Line Cinema is moving forward with plans for Evil Dead Rise, which some sites are calling Evil Dead 4, which presumably refers to it continuing the story from the first three (despite really being the 5th). Bruce Campbell will not return to star as Ash Williams in Evil Dead Rise (but he will executive produce along with Sam Raimi), as the leads will now be two twin sisters played by Alyssa Sutherland (Vikings) and Lily Sullivan (TV s Picnic at Hanging Rock), and the setting will also be the city versus the cabin in the woods of the previous movies.6. JAMES BOND PRODUCERS ASSURE NO TIME TO DIE WILL DEBUT IN THEATERS (Photo by ©MGM)Less than a week after the news first broke that Amazon had bid to buy MGM, the deal was confirmed with a .45 billion price tag. The logic behind the deal seems to be that it will greatly bolster the content available on the Amazon Prime subscription service, but the immediate results are sometimes more complex than that. For example, MGM actually sold the rights to most of its pre-1986 catalog to Turner and Warner Bros. in the 1980s (so this deal doesn t include The Wizard of Oz or Gone with the Wind). Some people also wondered if this meant the long-delayed-by-COVID-19 James Bond film No Time to Die (10/7/2021) might debut on Amazon instead of theaters. James Bond franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson were quick to correct this speculation, saying, We are committed to continuing to make James Bond films for the worldwide theatrical audience. (Of course, this doesn t necessarily mean anything for future Bond films.)7. GODZILLA VS KONG DIRECTOR ADAPTING COMIC BY THE WALKING DEAD CREATOR (Photo by Jason Mendez/Everett Collection)The monster movie Godzilla Vs Kong (Certified Fresh at 75%) was both a critical and box office success (relative to when it was released in the COVID-19 pandemic, obviously). Director Adam Wingard has been quite busy lining up future projects, which currently include a Face/Off sequel and the long-awaited ThunderCats movie, but Wingard is now also now signed with Universal Pictures to at least co-write an adaptation of the comic book series Hardcore by Robert Kirkman of The Walking Dead and Invincible fame. Hardcore is set in a world where ordinary people s bodies can be taken over by The Hardcore Program to act as living human drones by soldiers who can t otherwise get access to their targets any other way. This Hardcore should also not be confused with 2015 s Hardcore Henry (Rotten at 52%), which was released in the USA under the same Hardcore title.8. EVERY BOXER GETS HIS DAY: GEORGE FOREMAN BIOPIC TRAINING UP (Photo by ©Lionsgate courtesy Everett Collection)Pretty much every major sport has had at least a few biopics over the years, but arguably, few sports are as well represented as boxing. Even with that being the case, there still remain many famous boxers who haven t had their own biopics yet, and few of those exceptions are as famous as George Foreman, who notably followed up his career as a two-time Heavyweight Champion with a lucrative second career as an entrepreneur with his trademark George Foreman Grill. Sony Pictures is moving forward with plans for an untitled George Foreman biopic, with Khris Davis now signed to star as Foreman and Sullivan Jones cast as his rival Muhammad Ali. Davis recently co-starred in Judas and the Black Messiah, and his credits also include TV s The Blacklist and Atlanta. This biopic from director George Tillman Jr. (The Hate U Give, The Longest Ride) will focus on both Foreman s early career success and his comeback at the age of 45.9. JOHNNY KNOXVILLE CONFIRMS HE S DONE BEING A JACKASS (Photo by ©Paramount courtesy Everett Collection)Time, as it s said, waits for no man, and Jackass stars are no exception. Johnny Knoxville has been starring in various Jackass projects since the original series first debuted on MTV over 20 years ago in 2000, but he also turned 50 this past March. While talking about his latest injuries filming Jackass 4 (10/22/2021), Knoxville revealed that it will also be his final Jackass project, saying, You can only take so many chances before something irreversible happens I feel like I ve been extremely lucky to take the chances I ve taken and still be walking around. Of course, we may still see another Jackass movie someday, as a new generation of pranksters could ostensibly take over the franchise in the future.On an Apple device?

Stranger Things returns July 4 to a warm reception from critics for its new season. The first reviews out propelled the season 3 to Certified Fresh status within the day on Sunday, in one of the fastest designations in Rotten Tomatoes history.The series sets its third season in the summer, starting out all warm breezes, sunny skies, baking skin, splashing pools, and young romance. But this is Hawkins, Indiana, and stranger things lurk beneath that veneer of 80s suburban normalcy.Cue the Netflix series Goonies-like crew: supernatural Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Will (Noah Schnapp), Max (Sadie Sink), Nancy (Natalia Dyer), Jonathan (Charlie Heaton), and Steve (Joe Keery).Parents and other siblings also return, including scene-stealing Priah Ferguson as Lucas sister Erica, Dacre Montgomery as Max s bully brother Billy, and, of course, Winona Ryder as Will and Jonathan s mom Joyce and David Harbour as police chief Jim Hopper, who last season adopted the role as Eleven s father in attachment if not legally. In season 3, their bond is stronger than ever.See what critics had to say about Stranger Things: Season 3 (2019) 89% below.Something Old(Photo by Netflix) Reliable, durable and comfortable, ST3 is what you d expect and certainly what you want, if what you want is seasons 1 and 2, with a few big twists along the way. — Verne Gay, NewsdaySomething New(Photo by Netflix) Our heroes are not the goofy young kids they used to be. The third series realigns and reconfigures them in new combinations and allegiances. — Suzi Feay, Financial TimesSomething Borrowed Though there are signs that Stranger Things is on the verge of slowing down (one-note villains, the missing feeling of an unearthed 80s treasure), that s not happening yet in Season 3. — Tim Surette, TV Guide Stranger Things finally becomes the sort of extravagant, exceedingly ambitious adventure spectacle that would have ruled the theaters during the 80s, instead of a TV series merely obsessed with films from that decade. — Kevin Yeoman, ScreenRantSomething True?(Photo by Netflix) On the evidence of this plodding and predictable third season, the Duffers can t skip town soon enough. — Ed Power, Daily Telegraph (UK) It harnesses a Big Summer Mood, a healthy heap of nostalgia and has plenty of fun references. But its story is also convoluted and far too scattered. — Allison Keene, Paste Magazine It s a thin imitation of what we used to have, who could blame anyone for clinging to it? — Judy Berman, TIME MagazineFinal Verdict? (Photo by Netflix) Season 3 balances good-natured laughs with charming nostalgia through likable characters doing battle against looming horrors. Yet it feels like it s propping up its past to justify its present. — Brandon Katz, Observer Despite its rocky start, the creators and performers find a way to pull off the impossible and deliver the best season yet, all while honoring their loyal fan base and challenging them to want more from a series known for playing it safe. — Patrick Cavanaugh, ComicBook.com By doubling down on relationship stories, Season 3 of Stranger Things delivers an oft-charming, deeper-than-expected, and ultimately enjoyable new chapter. — Ben Travers, indieWireLike this?

(Photo by © Focus Features)At this year s Sundance Film Festival, few titles got Park City buzzing quite so much as Killing Eve season 2 showrunner Emerald Fennell s debut feature, Promising Young Woman. As one of its stars, Bo Burnham, told Rotten Tomatoes, it s like a stick of dynamite thrown into the conversation around consent and rape culture – and one that critics say is fiendishly and shockingly entertaining as it blows everything up.You might already know of the movie, due out in theaters in April, from the zeitgeist-capturing trailer – a fierce Carey Mulligan wreaks vengeance on a cavalcade of not-so-nice guys, hopping bars as a #MeToo vigilante egged on by a thrilling, strings-heavy rendition of Britney Spears Toxic. The basics are there in that trailer: Mulligan plays Cassie, who is indeed out to teach certain guys a lesson by playing blackout at the bar before pouncing into sobriety to teach them a lesson at home; Bo Burnham enters the picture as Ryan, the doctor so nice he might derail her from her mission. And the film does pay homage to Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton, with a soundtrack of 2000s pop bangers and a style that feels part music video, part The Simple Life. But the film takes wild story turns and tonal shifts that the marketing only cautiously hints at. We won t say much beyond that, as it s the surprises, and the way the film subverts expectations at every candy-colored turn, that make it such a compelling watch.The opening-night audience was rapt, thunderously applauding Mulligan s performance and Fennell s bold vision, and the movie is currently sitting at 100% on the Tomatometer. Its sexual politics, blistering attack on misogyny, and refusal to offer a black-and-white view of the culture it pervades have fueled hours of post-screening conversation and given critics a ton to chew over. The day after the movie s premiere, we met with Mulligan and Burnham to talk about the film s impact, good guys and bad guys, Britney and Paris, and how they think this movie is going to go down with audiences.The following interview was edited for length and clarity. Joel Meares for Rotten Tomatoes: Congrats on the film – people are talking. Carey, I was reading that you said you were a little bit nervous the first time you read the script. Did you have those same feelings watching it on the big screen last night?Carey Mulligan: Yeah. I m terrified, yeah.Rotten Tomatoes: What was that nervousness about?Mulligan: Oh, a million things. I mean, the nervousness reading the script wasn t It was just the good nerves. It s the nerves that I got when I read Wildlife. It s the nerves that make me want to do a job, where I go, like, I have no idea how I d do this. Probably I should do it. And that s what I had with this. I thought, like, What is Cassie? How the hell do I do that? And then I met Emerald, and five minutes later, committed to doing the job. So it s the good nerves, and then last night s nerves was 500 people watching my face. Look at my forehead. What s going on there? Why am I so flushed? And Bo Burnham twisting himself into a pretzel behind me was hard to deal with.(Photo by © Focus Features)Rotten Tomatoes: So you were nervous in a way too, Bo? Tell us about this pretzeling. Bo Burnham: It was like expressive performance dance. I wasn t going to sit through [the film at the premiere] and then Carey made me. She guilted me into it by being like, “This is a team experience.”Mulligan: I was a head of drama school, you know?Burnham: This really was a movie where just women told me what to do, which is truly very cool. And so I knew that whatever they told me to do, I d do. But yet it s horrifying. I mean, for me it s so horrifying, because it s like, I have to be appealing? Because personally I watch the movie and I go, like, And then this butthead shows up? Who gives a f k? And we re supposed to care? I didn t realize, I guess, how scary being a [romantic lead is]. I d be much more comfortable playing a hate-able character on the screen, because then people have to hate you. The idea that people have to like you is tough.Mulligan: Yeah, it s similar… I very rarely in my career have ever played the pretty girl, or whatever, and then when I did The Great Gatsby – he writes like she s the king s daughter. It paralyzed me, having to think externally, or think about yourself as being [appealing].Burnham: Yeah, that’s crazy, that’s like the Helen of Troy of America.(Photo by © Focus Features)Rotten Tomatoes: You mentioned the idea of hate-able characters, and the thing about Ryan is that he’s complex, as most of the men in the movie are, and there’s this question of what is a “bad guy” and what is a “good guy.” Last night at the Q A you spoke about how misogynist culture is not just about guys like Weinstein and Cosby, it’s more insidious. Do Ryan and other “nice guys” in the movie speak to that?Burnham: I don t know. I mean, truly, if I was a real actor or something, I d be like, I can t even step away from him enough to even see him as another person, and talk about him like that. But really, I mean, it s all up to Emerald, you know what I mean? I wasn t playing him as a metaphor, because that s just certainly not my job. My job is just be honest, and the meaning of that and what he represents, that s all in Emerald s hands. And I trusted her completely with that.If I can sit as an audience member and try to be objective, the movie just does a very beautiful job, I think, of showcasing the full gradient spectrum, from super black-and-white clear to: What exactly is this? Oh, you were 18? Do you even remember it? That s what I feel like we as men definitely need to contend with. But the misogyny, this subordination of women, is not like tumors on the male body. It s a virus, it runs through the entire culture of male behavior. It s super deep. It s not like, Oh, and then there s some crazy asshole to take it way too far. Even if you think about the geography of a bar, the lighting of a bar: Why is it dark? Why is there music playing? Would this be happening if the lights were on, and there was no music playing, and it was noon? I don t know. You know what I mean? The movie really casts such a wide net and interrogates so much so thoroughly. Emerald has thrown a pretty compelling stick of dynamite into this conversation, and I just would like to be a part of her crew in doing that.Rotten Tomatoes: It’s interesting you talk about the grey areas of this conversation, because I think a lot of people are going to look at the poster and trailer and expect something a little more black-and-white, that Cassie is going to be badass, beating people up and getting revenge like this avenging angel.Mulligan: That’s my next one.Burnham: Yeah! Alita 2.Rotten Tomatoes: Looking forward to it. But the film really isn’t that. There’s not a lot of easy satisfaction. Did that appeal to you about the project? Mulligan: Yeah, it s just, there s no easy answers, are there? It s not as easy as going like, You re bad. Now you re dead. It s not about just complete, total condemnation. I think so many of these films have just been so straightforward and they’ve tied everything up in a bow. My favorite films are films where nothing s sort of finished. I hate that sort of wedding-in-the-end film. Just don t have a wedding, just don’t have them, do you know what I mean? I want to walk away and wonder, Ooh, what s going to happen to them? I wonder what they ll decide? Burnham: I wonder if they’ll get married… Mulligan: Yeah.(Photo by Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images)Rotten Tomatoes: Let’s talk about Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. The movie has a fantastic instrumental version of “Toxic” and a key scene that features Hilton’s “Stars Are Blind.” And there is so much pastel and pink. Watching, it was interesting to see this girly-ness and these come-on songs and I kinda felt that while that was so much visual and musical fun, it could also be the flipside of some of the darker themes the movie explores. At least, it got me thinking about the connection. Mulligan: I don t know. I feel like [the songs are] being celebrated. I think it s a complete celebration of those things. It s a celebration of things that we so easily dismiss. I mean, like Emerald says, “Toxic” is one of the greatest songs ever written.Burnham: Incredible. [And] if you read the lyric, Even though the stars are blind, in T.S. Eliot, you d be like, Holy f k. Yeah, but no, it s true. It really is, in general, totally misogynist, the dismissal of pop music. If you listen to Robyn, or, I mean, anyone, these are powerful [songs]. But it isn t a guy on a guitar going, like, And I ve fallen down the railroad . But there s incredible depth and pain to that pop music, and I think the film is a pop song in a way. This flashy, sing-able, danceable thing, that when you actually listen to the lyrics Mulligan: That s like what you said when we were at the Indie Spirit Awards, and you got that award, and you said, like, “Some people say I m a comedian for teenage girls, and I say, ‘F—k yeah!’” We should celebrate teenage girls. They re extraordinary. Like I loved – I love – Britney, and I grew up [with her]. All of that kind of stuff is a part of our childhood, our teenage years, our womanhood, and it s just thrown out as being empty. And actually, people connect to it and feel empowered by it, and culture has decided to cast it aside as not being of enough value. So it s inherently dismissive of a lot of things that matter to women.(Photo by © Focus Features)Rotten Tomatoes: Do you have a favorite Britney song?Mulligan: I mean, “Toxic” has to be up there. I’m going to check… [walks over to grab her phone].Burnham: “ Baby One More Time” f ked me up, you know what I mean? I was nine. She was like 16, which is its own problem, whatever. Britney was like 16. I mean, but “Hit Me” was It s very loaded, but, Britney is incredible. She f king shaved her head and it was just like, My God, you know what I mean? She s f king been through [so much] Those are our stories.Mulligan: “Oops! I Did It Again” just was like Burnham: That f king video was incredible. The red.Mulligan: Oh, my gosh.Burnham: Yeah, I mean, Britney has had as deep a life experience as anyone on Planet Earth and it makes her music.Rotten Tomatoes: One of the things we think about at Rotten Tomatoes is criticism and who s actually doing the reviewing. I was watching this film – and I say this as the guy who came in to do the interview – and I was wondering if you think this is a film that female critics should primarily be assigned to review? Do you think a particular world experience is helpful in grappling with it? It’s a conversation I can see coming up, especially for a film that’s taking on misogyny in this way. Mulligan: I don t think it matters if it s a man or a woman, as long as I think it s I don t know. It s so tricky, isn t it?Burnham: I don t want to pass up the opportunity to pick our own critics. [Laughs.] Well, OK, so your critics are, in theory, a stand-in for the public, which they should be, and which they aren t right now, and that s what diversifying the whole critical community is about, right? They would reflect more of the audience. If critics are a stand-in for the audience, I think, and Emerald would say this, we want this film to be contended with and digested by men and women, and those who don t identify as either. The question comes, though, with the given that the critical body, as it stands right now, unfairly skews towards men. But I think the real beauty of the film, just speaking as a guy, is that it allows men in, because that s the only way that change is really going to happen, is if men actually stop stiff-arming the conversation away from them and actually can engage with it. I think Emerald is much more interested in the male public engaging with it than the male critics, but if male critics lead to that, great.Promising Young Woman is in theaters April 17, 2020.
(Photo by Warner Bros/ Everett Collection)DCEU Ranked: DC Movies By TomatometerAfter a long-running Superman series with Christopher Reeve in the iconic tights and cape (and one more with Brandon Routh), and compelling takes on Batman on both sides of the millennium, Warner Bros. put the reset on their DC Comics movies and created the DC Extended Universe. The first in this new constellation of comic book cinema was 2013 s Man of Steel, which took audiences back through the beefy boy from Krypton s origins and his blossoming into the protector of mankind. The super-serious tone and dismissal of some of Superman s key characteristics put off some, but this new take was bold enough to keep modern cynical audiences intrigued.Inevitably, comparisons were incessant to the rival Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially as director Zack Snyder doubled down on the dourness with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In this day and age, fans on the internet expect an all-access pass on the production of their favorite properties, including leaks, rumors, and sneaky on-set photos. The publicly aired dirty laundry of the troubled Suicide Squad shoot colored audience perception of the film before it even released. It also wasn t very good.Wonder Woman, with its fleet touch and storytelling pizzazz, would become the first beacon of light for the DCEU, and its first Certified Fresh hit. Justice League followed that year, cramming huge characters into a truncated runtime (not to mention tonally inconsistent reshoots by Joss Whedon, and Henry Cavill s phantom mustache), leading to rallying cries online of a fabled Snyder Cut of the movie.It d be more than a year later for the next DCEU entry: 2018 s Aquaman. Directed by James Wan, if the film wasn t exactly drowning in critical praise, it at last was enough to keep the audiences worldwide satisfied and optimistic for the future. That paid off with Shazam!, a superhero comedy in the more classic vein, one that doesn t bend over backwards to connect with the larger DC Universe. It worked there and with Birds of Prey, featuring. Wonder Woman 1984 didn t quite continue the streak, but The Suicide Squad has become among the franchise s best-reviewed. See where how they all play out as we rank all DC Extended Universe movies!
1确实很差，手游在任何跨平台游戏评奖中，连提名都没有过。经过十年发展，坐拥全世界使用人数最多且在游戏营收最大的平台上，手游领域依然拿不出任何在全平台竞争中有竞争力的作品。手游现阶段依然只是其他平台的下位替代品，即填补没条件用其它平台玩游戏时的选择。更直观的说法，主机和pc游戏尝试用同ip做一个简化的手游版圈钱的比比皆是，甚至还有史克威尔这种把小二十年前的东西直接拿到手机圈钱的。又有何人听说哪个手机游戏可以反向用自己的ip攻入其他平台的。而近两年的tga年度最佳手游使命召唤和amongus，都是来自其他平台的简化改编或移植。 South Korean survival drama Squid Game has assembled a massive fan base since it premiered September 17 on Netflix. Starting with 456 competitors in dire financial straits, the bloody and suspenseful series finds an increasingly smaller number of them competing in deadly takes on traditional children s games in the hopes of being the one left standing to collect the grand prize of 45.6 billion won (or nearly million).Gore aside, the nine-episode series has caught on because it s so easy to see how these characters wound up in the situation. Lee Jung-jae plays Seong Gi-Hun, a gambling addict who enters the game at number 456 in the hopes of settling his debts and repairing his relationship with his daughter. Jung Ho-Yeon plays Kang Sae-byeok (or Number 067), a North Korean defector hoping to win so that she can pay a broker to find and retrieve her family.But the show s survival-of-the-fittest plot also resonates because it is a favorite theme in pop culture. We ve rounded up 10 other film and TV titles that are worth watching once you survive Squid Game.
