亚博网址确定采用百度引擎1（Baidu 1）This month, Netflix and Dreamworks are releasing the third season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, an animated spin-off of the popular Jurassic Park franchise that focuses on a group of kids trying to survive in Isla Nublar. And in April, the fourth season of Fast Furious Spy Racers premiered on Netflix — another show that took a huge live-action franchise and made it more accessible for younger audiences.This is not unlike a trend in the ’80s and ’90s that saw all kinds of live-action franchises turned into kid-friendly cartoons, no matter how not-for-kids the movies were. Everything from RoboCop to Godzilla were turned into a toy-churning machine that entertained, and baffled, kids on Saturday mornings. To celebrate the release of the new season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, grab your favorite cereal because we re looking at the weirdest animated spin-offs of blockbuster franchises originally aimed at adults.Godzilla: The Series (1998-2000)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: Though no Godzilla movie has been rated R, the films still feature a story about a giant monster rampaging through the city and sensationalize the horrors of nuclear power. The much-maligned 1998 film unleashed a giant monster (which basically treated Godzilla like a dinosaur) on the Big Apple and caused all kinds of chaos. This year’s Godzilla vs. Kong scored better on the Tomatometer but is still rated PG-13.What the Cartoon Changed: For many ’90s kids, this was their definitive Godzilla story. It helped that the cartoon actually had its titular monster go up against other amazing monsters, from mutated animals to mythological beings like Quetzalcoatl and the Loch Ness monster. Though not really a violent show, there was a lot of cool monster action, creature designs, and even homages to horror films like The Thing.Rambo: The Force of Freedom (1986)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: An R-rated franchise about a Vietnam war veteran suffering from PTSD who kills, maims, and otherwise obliterates dozens of people wherever he goes, Rambo is a franchise that doesn t really scream Saturday morning cartoon. And yet, a 65-episode show graced our screens in the ’80s.What the Cartoon Changed: Well, to the surprise of no one, Rambo: The Force of Freedom ( The Animated Series ) severely toned down the violence from the original movies. Rather than being dropped into a war zone or sieging a small town while struggling with his PTSD, this Rambo leads a team of heroes from around the world to fight an evil organization called S.A.V.A.G.E. This is basically G.I. Joe but with more muscular men. Rambo never mentions the Vietnam war, nor does he ever kill anyone, but he certainly does take the time to teach kids about morality, doing the right thing, and even the environment. He even dressed up as Santa Claus at one point!Police Academy: The Animated Series (1988-1989)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: Though later films would tone down enough to get even a PG rating, the franchise started life as an R-rated comedy with everything from foul language, to nudity. The franchise is known for its low-brow humor, sexual innuendo, and physical comedy. Still, that didn t stop it from becoming a cartoon made by Warner Bros. that lasted two seasons and 65 episodes.What the Cartoon Changed: Taking place between the fourth and fifth films in the franchise, the cartoon focuses on the cast getting into trouble, some slapstick comedy ensues, and the mismatched group of cops learning to be a team and solve crimes ends up saving the day. Some episodes start featuring a recurring villain in the form of a crime boss nicknamed Kingpin, whose stature and intelligence really resembles that of the Marvel villain of the same name.Beetlejuice (1989-1991)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: Out of the films in this list, Beetlejuice is the only one rated PG, but that doesn t mean it was kid-friendly. After all, there is a lot of talk about suicide, and the eponymous Beetlejuice is a depraved and devious poltergeist who tries to force a teenage girl to marry him.What the Cartoon Changed: The ABC animated show brings back Tim Burton to executive produce, and only loosely adapts the movie into a long-form series. The scares and gore are gone, as is the sexual innuendo. Instead, the show turns Beetlejuice into a lovable goofball who goes on journeys with his friend Lydia across the Neitherworld. Beetlejuice usually tries to scam the residents of this afterlife realm, and the duo goes on adventures with monsters, ghouls, and other creatures. The show was praised for its mix of traditional 2D animation along with CGI, and it won an Emmy for best animated show.RoboCop (1988)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: Alongside Rambo, this is arguably the weirdest film to have been adapted into a kids cartoon, but like most Paul Verhoeven films, RoboCop got severely misinterpreted and turned into a franchise that glorified what the first film criticized (as we ll see later). A film that barely avoided an X rating because the titular character constantly blows heads and genitals off feels very much unsuited for a Saturday morning cartoon, but that didn t stop Marvel from producing one anyway.What the Cartoon Changed: Rather than a scathing indictment of capitalism and militarization of the police, RoboCop is also turned into a superhero who fights everything from polluters to a KKK-like gang. At one point, RoboCop even plays a part in Middle East peace processes. Of course, the character doesn t kill anyone, with his deadly weapons turned into non-lethal lasers that later are added to the main live-action franchise.Conan the Adventurer (1992-1993)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: In case it hasn t been clear so far, most of these cartoons were adapted from popular live-action movies that had a lot of merchandising potential, they just needed a way to market directly to kids, even if they could not watch the original film. Even if a kid was not allowed to watch Conan the Barbarian crush his enemies, see them driven before him, and hear the lamentation of the women, they might still want a muscular Arnold Schwarzenegger action figure that brandishes Conan s cool sword.What the Cartoon Changed: Rather than a child slave, Conan is — you guessed it — kind of a superhero now. Like in the film, he s on a quest for vengeance against a villain, but this time he embarks on the journey with more naïveté and sensibility than the film suggested. He does not rip a vulture s throat out with his teeth, he s more like He-Man, honorable and with a strong sense of morality. Despite this, the cartoon stayed strangely accurate to the original works of author Robert E. Howard.Toxic Crusaders (1991)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: The Toxic Avenger is an early attempt at a superhero comedy. The story of a man who is dumped into a vat of toxic waste and becomes a hideously disfigured monster with superpowers, the film is hyper violent, full of sexual references, and incredibly gory.What the Cartoon Changed: Toxic Crusaders takes a cue from other environmentally conscious cartoons of the time like Captain Planet and Swamp Thing and focuses squarely on the toxic waste part of the Toxic Avenger. Now part of a superhero team, the Crusaders combat pollution and a lot of aliens.Little Shop (1991)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: Whether you enjoy the original Roger Corman film or the Frank Oz–directed musical from the 80s, Little Shop of Horrors has something for everyone — except children. The film versions are full of sexual innuendo as well as a ton of darkly comedic murders, which the musical takes a step further by having the man-eating plants conquer the entire world and eat everyone.What the Cartoon Changed: The early ’90s saw a lot of films turned into short-lived animated shows, especially those with environmentalist messages. Little Shop takes Audrey II and turns the man-eating plant into the prankster and hip rapper, Junior, who gets into all sorts of whimsical trouble with its friend, the de-aged Seymour. The plant can still hypnotize, but rather than hypnotize people, Junior can control other plants to aid in mischief. There are still a lot of musical numbers, but they are paired with moral lessons.Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles (1999-2000)Why the Original Isn t for Kids: Though not as hyper-violent as RoboCop, this is another franchise Paul Verhoeven touched that got its political aspect diluted with the years. The original Starship Troopers film was a poignant sci-fi satire about fascism and military-led nationalism. There is a ton of graphic violence involving soldie

3.16.9 8月喜迎Watch: Directors Joe and Anthony Russo on the making of Avengers: Infinity War above.In 2019, Rotten Tomatoes turns 21, and to mark the occasion we’re celebrating the 21 Most Memorable Moments from the movies over the last 21 years. In this special video series, we speak to the actors and filmmakers who made those moments happen, revealing behind-the-scenes details of how they came to be and diving deep into why they’ve stuck with us for so long. Once we’ve announced all 21, it will be up to you, the fans, to vote for which is the most memorable moment of all. In this episode of our ‘21 Most Memorable Moments’ series, directors Joe and Anthony Russo break down how they created one of the movies most shocking cliffhangers. VOTE FOR THIS MOMENT IN OUR 21 MOST MEMORABLE MOVIE MOMENTS POLLThe Movie: Avengers: Infinity War (2018) 85%Avengers: Infinity War was something moviegoers had never seen before: an epic movie crossover event that dwarfed the two previous Avengers films in scale and ambition and threw more beloved characters at the screen than perhaps any other movie in history. Also, uniquely for a film about a (very large) band of (very beloved) superheroes, it centered its narrative around its singular villain, one that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and the filmmakers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe had been seeding for years: “Thanos is coming” isn’t just the panicked warning of Bruce Banner in Infinity War’s early scenes, it was the tease Marvel had been giving us since Phase One. And Infinity War is the Mad Titan’s movie. It’s his search for the Infinity Stones that drives the narrative, and it’s the snap of his be-gloved fingers that ends it.Joe and Anthony Russo, who joined the MCU with The Winter Soldier, had a mammoth task with Infinity War. Not only did they have to set up a cliffhanger for the ages and provide, working with Josh Brolin, a villain worthy of so many years of buildup, but they were helming one of the most expensive movies ever made and a story whose threads and characters had mostly been established by other filmmakers across 10 years of movies. Here, the brothers explain how they prepared for Infinity War, the logic behind their narrative choices, and working with Brolin to create a villain for the ages – one with whom some might even sympathize.“The central idea of Civil War was for us to break up the Avengers and shatter that relationship between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.”Anthony Russo: “Civil War is where [the story] started to come into our brains. The central idea of that movie was for us to we wanted to break up the Avengers and shatter that relationship between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. As we were executing it and we realized how well we were sort of achieving that on an emotional level with the characters, that s when I think our brains started to open up to, ‘My God, they re so vulnerable now.’ Now, you re like, what happens when Thanos comes? And that s when our brains started stepping through where the story could go.”In Civil War the Avengers are divided. (Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, © Marvel Studios)“We very thoroughly explore a lot of different ideas before we lock into what s exciting us most.”Anthony: “Our process is to spend many, many, many months in that room with [writers] Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely, with Kevin [Feige], talking through different story ideas, different possibilities. We very thoroughly explore a lot of different ideas before we lock into what s exciting us most. So, at some point [while writing Infinity War], yeah, sure, there are many variations [of what could happen], but once the story starts to take shape it really forms in a muscular way around a single idea. And then we spend months working on that.”“I think a lot of people respect Thanos’s monastic dedication to his task. He ll die for it.”Joe Russo: “[Thanos is a] complicated character. He s a profoundly interesting villain who is equal parts empathetic and loathsome. He s also frightening and intimidating and nearly invincible. He s driven, philosophically driven. I think a lot of people respect his monastic dedication to his task. He ll die for it. And what s interesting about the end of that movie is he shuns all materialism. He s got this amazingly powerful gauntlet that can alter the very fabric of the universe, and he retires to a shack, you know, clearly on some desolate planet.”For the Russos, Infinity War was Thanos s story. (Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, © Marvel Studios)“We did tests with Josh Brolin where he would come in, perform, and we would work on it for several months and try to figure out the best version of it.”Anthony: “We knew we wanted to center the movie on the character, and we knew that we can only do that if we pulled off the most realistic-feeling performance that you could possibly imagine in a movie. So, we started very early on with our visual effects team, specifically our visual effects supervisor, Dan DeLeeuw, and trying to figure out how the technology can work and we can actually achieve this. We did a lot of tests, we did tests with Josh Brolin where he would come in, perform, and we would work on it for several months and try to figure out the best version of it. So yeah, that character was built methodically over the entire span of the development of the film.”The Moment: Thanos SnapsThough the world knew Infinity War was one half of a two-part Avengers epic, both parts of which were shot concurrently, few believed the movie would end the way it did: with half the universe dusted – and with some of most beloved MCU characters among the fallen. It was unfathomable. Thanos… won? Shocked audiences wept through the credits – comforted somewhat by that brilliant Captain Marvel teaser – and took to social media to express their despair through every variation of crying/devastated memes. Then came the recriminations: Why the hell didn’t Thor go for the head? Peter Quill was totally to blame for this, right? It felt certain that the universe would be restored in about 12 months – Endgame would release almost a year to the day after Infinity War – but there was no certainty. After all, with “The Snap” the Russos and Marvel Studios showed the world nothing and nobody was sacred and anything was possible.Thanos has an almost monastic dedication to his mission. (Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, © Marvel Studios)“There s no bigger way to write ourselves into a corner than killing half the characters.”Anthony: “We actually never thought of it as a cliffhanger. In our own brains, for us, we were telling a complete story, this was Thanos s movie, he was the lead of the film, and we gave him a complete arc – a proper ending.”Joe: “Anth and I, through our entire experience at Marvel, always tried to make very disruptive choices with each film. The end of Winter Soldier, good guys and the bad guys, we flip everything on its head. In Civil War we divorce the Avengers. With Infinity War we knew we wanted to make a strong narrative choice. There s an adage where you write yourself into a corner, and you try to figure out how to get out. That usually creates really dramatic moments for the audience. There s no bigger way to write ourselves into a corner than killing half the characters.”“As far as who went to dust, everything s always built upon story.”Joe: “The visualization was purely just we thought about the elemental aspect of your body and what happens to it. And that s sort of accelerating the decomposing process in a way. As far as who went to dust, everything s always built upon story. We ll just say that there s a reason the original six Avengers are left.”They Russos say the Snap was not a cliffhanger in their mind. (Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, © Marvel Studios)“Tony Stark and Peter Parker developed a father-son relationship over the course of two films. We felt like that would be hard to watch.” Joe: “Spider-Man was my favorite character growing up; it was this notion of a child who had been burdened with this incredible responsibility and through very tragic circumstances, with the death of his uncle. So I think we always felt that would be [a key emotional moment]. Tony Stark and Peter Parker developed a father-son relationship over the course of two films. We felt like that would be hard to watch, and it was: it was hard to watch on set, and it was hard to watch for the audience, I think.”The Impact: Anything Is PossibleThe commercial success of Infinity War, and then Endgame after it, was monumental: Infinity War is now the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time, Endgame is number one. The impact of both goes beyond the box office, though: few movies, perhaps ever, have so dominated the pop-culture conversation. Infinity War was a global cliffhanger the likes of which we’d never seen and the feverish anticipation it built would be what made Endgame the most successful movie ever. As the culmination of the first decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the two films cemented that brand’s dominance at the movies – something that looks set to continue with an exciting and expanding Phase 4 and 5. There is a sense that, with its universe-building and crossovers, Marvel and the MCU are changing the very nature – and certainly the business – of commercial cinema (for better or worse, depending on your perspective). For Joe and Anthony Russo, who have directed more films within the MCU than any other director or directing pair, the key to the brand’s success is less about the razzle-dazzle of special effects, or even about the narrative daring it takes to dust half of your leads – it’s about character. The reason the MCU is as massive as it is, and the reason Infinity War and Endgame are a kind of phenomenon, lies in our connection to Tony, Steve, Peter, Natasha, T’Challa, and, yes, even Thanos.Joe and Anthony Russo on set with Chris Evans. (Photo by Chuck Zlotnick / ©Marvel Studios 2018)“Mark [Ruffalo] turned around in the theater and he thought, ‘Alright, I gotta get out of here before someone hurts me.’”Anthony: “At the premiere and many of the early screenings that we attended, we anticipated the ending being complicated for people because it was complicated for ourselves, but no, we didn t anticipate the depth of emotion that people would experience from that ending.”Joe: “[Mark] Ruffalo was in a theater in New York, and he was in a cap and glasses, and he was there with his son and his son s friends, and he said when it got to the end, literally people just sat in the audience for 10 minutes and a guy ripped his shirt off and started screaming, Why?!’ at the screen. Mark turned around in the theater and he thought, ‘Alright, I gotta get out of here before someone hurts me,’ and he snuck out the side door. So we didn t expect that level of emotional response to it.”“In our minds, that s why the Avengers lost in Infinity War – the fact that they were divided.”Anthony: “Look, [Tony and Cap are] the heart and soul of the Avengers, you know. Tony is sorta like an extroverted leader and Cap is like the heart and soul, the moral core of them. For the two of them to have a falling out and have an irreconcilable problem was really devastating to the team as a whole. You know in our minds, that s why the Avengers lost in Infinity War – the fact that they were divided. They weren t functioning as a team in that movie any longer, so they weren t prepared for the universe s greatest threat. But the journey they re on is very much at the heart of the entire story.”Robert Downey Jr. in an early Infinity War scene. (Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, © Marvel Studios)“All these characters have emotional vulnerabilities that complicate their ability to do what needs to be done.”Joe: “Part of telling stories is learning empathy. I don t know if people can empathize with Thanos, but they can empathize with Star-Lord – the love of his life was murdered by the guy in front of him, and he made a very emotional choice. I think that s the human choice, and that s the truthful choice that you would make in those circumstances. He paid for it with his life, Star-Lord.”Anthony: “Exactly. As storytellers, we find that one of the most empathetic moments in the story. Also, the other thing to focus on his choice, I mean all of these characters make flawed choices. If Thor had not been so angry, and so revenge-driven, he may have killed Thanos faster than he did. The fact that he wanted revenge, he wanted to see in Thanos s eyes as he was killing him, that gave Thanos a window to reverse things on him. All these characters have emotional vulnerabilities that complicate their ability to do what needs to be done. Us watching them fight through that is part of the fun.”Joe: “It s makes them interesting to watch. If all they did was make the right choice every time, it s a fairly predictable and boring story after a while.”Avengers: Infinity War was released April 27, 2018. Buy or rent it at FandangoNOW.
bly worth tuning in. Gunn will be answering fan questions about the reboot, and the panel description states that the members of Task Force X (i.e. The Suicide Squad) will join for a fast-paced, no-holds-barred Squad Showdown that tests every team member’s Squad knowledge — and survival skills. What that means is anyone s guess, and while no names are listed in the description itself, we know that Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Alice Braga, John Cena, Pete Davidson, and Nathan Fillion are scheduled to show up, among others (and they re in the trailer).The Snyder Cut of Justice League(Photo by DC Entertainment)When: 2:30 pm (PT)Length: 25 minutesThe fans who clamored for the mythical Snyder Cut of Justice League are finally getting their wish, as the purest version of director Zack Snyder s film is scheduled to premiere on HBO Max in 2021. With that in mind, Snyder will answer fan questions and welcome a few surprise guests likely at least Gal Gadot and Ezra Miller, both of whom have panels before this one.The Flash (TV)(Photo by DC Entertainment)When: 2:54 pm (PT)Length: 16 minutesOne of only two TV-specific panels that were moved to the Hall of Heroes presentation after FanDome was split into two days, The Flash panel will feature executive producer Eric Wallace and stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Nicolet, Kayla Compton and Brandon McKnight as they reminisce over Season 6 and look ahead to Season 7. In addition, they ll also preview a sneak peek at the black-and-white noir-themed episode Kiss Kiss Breach Breach, which was supposed to have run as part of Season 6 before the pandemic hit. It should be noted that this panel has been dramatically shortened to 16 minutes to fit into the Hall of Heroes schedule, so we may not get everything described above on August 22, but it looks like the full 40-minute presentation will be broadcast on September 12.Black Adam(Photo by DC Enteratinment)When: 3:10 pm (PT)Length: 15 minutesWe re finally getting the Black Adam movie in 2021 or we expect to get it in time for Christmas, anyway and star Dwayne Johnson will be doing a Q A session to give fans a taste of what his first comic book superhero movie will look like. The description for the panel also mentions a few surprises, so we may get some info on how the film may tie in to Shazam! (more on that movie below).Titans (TV)(Photo by Warner Bros.)When: 3:50 pm (PT)Length: 15 minutesThis is the second television series, along with The Flash, that was deemed worthy to move from its original placement in the WatchVerse module to the prime Hall of Heroes lineup, so that already hints that the panel will deliver something special for the fans. However, also like The Flash, the length of the panel has been cut down from its original 30-minute slot in order to fit here, but when it resurfaces on FanDome s September 12 broadcast, we ll get the whole shebang. With all of that said, the panel is set to include stars Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Teagan Croft, Ryan Potter, Conor Leslie, Curran Walters, Joshua Orpin, Damaris Lewis, with Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as they talk about the upcoming third season and possibly unveil a premiere date.Aquaman(Photo by Warner Bros.)When: 4:05 pm (PT)Length: 10 minutesSure, Aquaman has been out for a couple of years now, so a retrospective look at the film may not be the most earth-shattering thing on your list. That said, director James Wan and co-star Patrick Wilson will be on hand for a brief look back at the world of Atlantis with some behind-the-scenes material, and that could potentially lead into some new info or some sort of a teaser for either Aquaman 2 (due out in 2022) or the horror-themed spinoff The Trench (reportedly due out sometime before Aquaman 2), both of which are in active development right now.SHAZAM!(Photo by DC Entertainment)When: 4:40 pm (PT)Length: 10 minutesLike Aquaman, Shazam! has already come and gone from theaters, but unlike the panel for that film, the description for this one specifically teases that star Zachary Levi and co-stars Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Granger, Faithe Herman, Meagan Good, and Mark Strong will discuss what the next movie might be about, along with surprise guests. Again, this could all point to the eventual Black Adam/Shazam! crossover everyone is expecting.The Batman(Photo by @mattreevesLA)When: 5:30 pm (PT)Length: 30 minutesThe primetime evening slot goes to Matt Reeves The Batman, possibly the most anticipated film of the event, if only because we ve gotten a fair amount of detail about Wonder Woman 1984 but still don t know a whole lot about the latest iteration of the Caped Crusader. Reeves will be joined by FanDome host Aisha Tyler to talk about the upcoming film, and while the description mentions a surprise (or two), we know that Robert Pattinson is supposed to show up at some point, so there could be some big reveals in store.DC FanDome s Hall of Heroes presentations begin at 10:00 am (PT) on Saturday, August 22.

you have to stay removed: It happened 75 years ago, and looking at it through glass, it s encased in amber, and I feel safe from it. And we don t want our audience to feel safe, we want them to feel what those characters are feeling, which was this constant, ambient dread and terror. The Terror: Infamy premieres Monday, August 12 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
With its 21st installment, the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally has its first movie centered around a solo female superhero. And it delivers spectacularly, according to critics who saw Captain Marvel last night.

This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering new films from the Academy Award nominated directors of Black Swan and American Hustle, and more.This WEEK S TOP STORYCHRIS EVANS TO RETURN TO THE MCU, BUT HOW?(Photo by Jay Maidment/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)When it comes to big-budget superhero movies, press releases will frequently keep some details hidden or vague in the interest of not spoiling the film s premise or story beats. This week s big news, however, was possibly a rare example of film speculation run amok. Let s start with the baseline story, which is that Chris Evans is expected to return for at least one more Marvel Studios film after ostensibly leaving the role of Captain America in Avengers: Endgame (Certified Fresh at 94%). Most sources reporting the announcement filled in the blanks to assume Evans was returning as Steve Rogers, but the original story didn t actually say that. The other possibility to consider is that Evans could be reprising his role as Fantastic Four member Johnny Storm, A.K.A. The Human Torch, possibly in a small cameo role. Kevin Feige confirmed just a few weeks ago that he is currently casting the Fantastic Four reboot, and we ve also heard recently about the next Spider-Man movie bringing in actors who played villains in the Spider-Man movies starring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. So, it seems plausible that alternate realities or a multiverse could be at play in the future of the MCU, and Chris Evans could have a cameo as someone other than Captain America (it would also explain why Evans tweeted News to me in response to the Captain America speculation). Having said that, if Evans is returning as Captain America, the obvious explanation would involve time travel. We already know from the Loki trailer and the casting of Jonathan Majors as the time-traveling villain Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania that the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will likely feature be very wibbly wobbly timey wimey. We ll just have to wait and see.Other Top Headlines1. ROBERT DE NIRO, RAMI MALEK, CHRIS ROCK, ZOE SALDANA, ANYA TAYLOR-JOY JOIN BIG ENSEMBLE(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough, Jason Mendez/Everett Collection)Director David O. Russell doesn t always work with big ensemble casts filled with famous names, but he definitely has done it a few times (American Hustle and I Heart Huckabees, for example). We still don t have a title for his next film yet, which has already signed Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and Tenet star John David Washington. The cast expanded twice this week, starting on Wednesday with the news that Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) and Zoe Saldana (Marvel s Gamora) had signed on. The very next day, the cast grew even bigger with the additions of Robert De Niro, Mike Myers, Alessandro Nivola, Timothy Olyphant, Andrea Riseborough, Chris Rock, Matthias Shoenaerts, Michael Shannon, and Anya-Taylor Joy (The Witch, The Queen s Gambit). The project is currently filming in Los Angeles, but details are being kept vague as to what it s actually about, except that Christian Bale and Margot Robbie are playing a doctor and a lawyer (not necessarily respectively). Whatever the movie ends up being titled, the end result will be distributed by 20th Century Studios, possibly as a late 2021 awards season release.2. DARREN ARONOFSKY CASTS BRENDAN FRASER AS THE WHALE (Photo by ©Lionsgate)After taking a few years following his most recent film, 2017 s mother! (Fresh at 68%), director Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, Black Swan) appears to be getting closer to filming his next, an adaptation of the 2012 play The Whale by playwright Samuel D. Hunter. For the lead role, Aronofsky has cast Brendan Fraser to play a six hundred pound recluse hiding away from the world and slowly eating himself to death. A24 will be distributing The Whale, but the project does not currently have an announced production start date, so we don t have a firm idea of when it might be released, either.3. BEN AFFLECK JOINS DISNEY TO DIRECT KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES (Photo by Universal Pictures)Author Shannon Messenger s 2012 children s fantasy novel Keeper of the Lost Cities has become a series of nine books (and counting), including a few New York Times bestsellers. Walt Disney Pictures obviously hasn t gotten out of the live-action fantasy movie business, but aside from something like Artemis Fowl, many of their films in that zone lately have been remakes of their animated classics. In that light, it makes total sense that Disney is moving forward with a Keeper of the Lost Cities movie, but what s more surprising is that it s Ben Affleck (Argo, Certified Fresh at 96%) who they ve hired to direct and co-write the adaptation. Studio-wise, the hiring of Ben Affleck is sort of a get for Disney, since he has worked quite a bit for Warner Bros. in recent years, including appearance in a few recent movies (and an upcoming HBO Max mini-series) as Batman.4. THE GOOD WIFE WRITER TAKING ON SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN BIOPIC (Photo by Robert Spencer/Getty Images)This coming August 25th will mark the third anniversary of the death of U.S. Senator John McCain, whose other accomplishments include surviving five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam and his two campaigns for president in 2000 and 2008. McCain s life has been detailed in a number of books, and this week, three of them (The Luckiest Man: Life with John McCain, Faith of My Fathers, and Worth the Fighting For) written by former McCain speechwriter and chief of staff Mark Salter were optioned by Stampede Ventures to be adapted into a bigraphical feature film. Stampede Ventures is also the production company currently developing Frosty the Snowman starring Jason Momoa and the Walter Cronkite drama Newsflash. Salter will also co-write the adaptation with producer Craig Turk (TV s The Good Wife, F.B.I.), with McCain s widow Cindy McCain acting as the project s executive producer. Faith of My Fathers was adapted as a TV movie in 2005 with John McCain portrayed by Shawn Hatosy, and Ed Harris also co-starred as McCain in the HBO film Game Change (Fresh at 67%).5. FIRST FEMALE DIRECTOR ALICE GUY-BLACHÉ GETTING HER OWN BIOPIC (Photo by Everett Collection)We recently started a new year, which also could have offered a good jumping off point for the #52FilmsbyWomen challenge, during which movie fans commit to watching at least one movie from a female director every week for a full year. Although male directors ha obviously dominated the industry for much of the last 120+ years, the very first female film director, Alice Guy-Blaché, made her debut in 1896 with the short film The Fairy of the Cabbages (note: in 1896, all movies were short films). The life of Alice Guy-Blaché is now being developed as a biopic from the same filmmakers who also adapted her life story as the 2018 documentary Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché (Certified Fresh at 95%). At the time a secretary for the Gaumont studio, Guy-Blaché was actually in the room when the Lumiere Brothers held their very first public screening in 1895, and within a year she was making her own movies. This eventually led her to America, where she directed over 1,000 short films during the Silent Film Era, working with stars like Lionel and Ethel Barrymore. Jodie Foster narrated the Be Natural documentary, but it s not yet known if she will also be involved with the biopic.6. CARDI B TO MAKE HER LEAD ACTING DEBUT WITH ASSISTED LIVING (Photo by Stephane Cardinale - Corbis/Getty Images)Rapper and pop star Cardi B has had a lot of success in her musical career, but it has been less than three years since her first studio album came out, and only 16 months since she made her feature film acting debut in Hustlers (Certified Fresh at 87%), starring Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu (admittedly, Cardi B s screentime in Hustlers is almost blink-and-you ll-miss-her). With all that in mind, she s ready to take on a lead role, as she is now signed to star in a Paramount Pictures comedy in the vein of classic funny films like Tootsie, Sister Act, and Mrs. Doubtfire called Assisted Living. Cardi B will play a small-time crook on the run from the law who finds refuge disguising herself as an elderly resident at her grandmother s nursing home. Assisted Living got its start at Paramount as a spec script by TV producer and writer Kay Oyegun (This is Us). Cardi B will also have a supporting role in Fast Furious 9 (5/28/2021, tentatively).7. ANNA PAQUIN JOINS SHAZAM! STAR IN FOOTBALL BIOPIC AMERICAN UNDERDOG (Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection)One of the last films to have a wide release in the USA in 2020 before COVID-19 shut down theaters was the faith-based romance I Still Believe (Rotten at 51%), which still managed to earn back its production budget (.4 million against million). That film was the first from a new faith-based production company called Kingdom Story Company, and their second and third movies will both feature Shazam! star Zachary Levi. The teen drama Unbreakable Boy is currently filming, and production will soon start on the football biopic American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story. Zachary Levi will star as Warner, who overcame a series of hurdles (including having the bad luck of trying out for the QB job for the Green Bay Packers early in Brett Favre s career) to become the only person inducted into both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Arena Football Hall of Fame. The news this week is that True Blood and The Piano star Anna Paquin has also signed on to co-star as Brenda Warner, Kurt Warner s wife. American Underdog will be directed by Andrew and Jon Erwin (who also directed I Still Believe) and the film will be distributed by Lionsgate.8. MICHAEL PEÑA JOINS ROLAND EMMERICH S DISASTER MOVIE MOONFALL(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)After trying a few other genres (Anonymous, Stonewall), disaster movie specialist Roland Emmerich has been getting back to his roots more recently (Independence Day: Resurgence and the war movie Midway), and will especially do so with Moonfall, which is about exactly what it sounds like. The Moonfall ensemble cast will include Halle Berry, Charlie Plummer, Donald Sutherland, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley (Samwell Tarley from Game of Thrones), and until this week, Transformers star Stanley Tucci. Tucci had to drop out of the production due to recently imposed travel restrictions preventing him from flying from the U.K. to Canada where the film is being produced. Instead, Ant-Man MVP supporting actor Michael Peña has signed on for Tucci s role as a a wealthy car dealer who is married to the ex-wife of Patrick Wilson s character. Presumably, some of those used cars are about to get demolished by some big old moon rocks.9. ARMIE HAMMER DROPS OUT OF J.LO ROMCOM SHOTGUN WEDDING (Photo by Daniel Smith/Warner Bros.)Armie Hammer became the focus of an online controversy this week, the nature of which we won t get into. The news came out just before Hammer was about to spend four months in the Dominican Republic filming the romantic comedy Shotgun Wedding with Jennifer Lopez, but the production will now need to recast the role, as he has dropped out. This will actually be the second time the role will be recast, as it was originally supposed to be played by Ryan Reynolds (who is still executive producing Shotgun Wedding). Lopez and whoever-replaces-Armie-Hammer will star in Shotgun Wedding as a couple having a destination wedding in the Caribbean who then begin to get cold feet, just as everybody in the wedding party also gets taken hostage. Shotgun Wedding will be directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect, Sisters) from a screenplay by Liz Meriwether (No Strings Attached) and Mark Hammer (Two Night Stand), who as far as we can tell, isn t related to Armie Hammer.On an Apple device?

(Photo by © Netflix / Courtesy Everett Collection)2020 was an election year, so it s no surprise perhaps that even the Golden Raspberry Awards tilted heavily political with its new slate of nine Razzie winners. Across categories that included Worst Picture, Worst Actor and Actress, and Worst Screen Combo, the big winners/losers were pop star Sia s controversial musical Music (three wins), My Pillow Guy Mike Lindell s documentary Absolute Proof (two wins), and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which took out two categories – Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo – thanks to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani s infamous cameo in the Certified Fresh, Oscar-nominated sequel.Music, which has been the subject of much discussion due to its depiction of autism and casting of a non-autistic actress as the autistic lead character, took out Worst Director (Sia), Worst Actress (Kate Hudson), and Worst Supporting Actress (Maddie Ziegler); Absolute Proof, however, won the Razzies lowest honor, Worst Film, along with Worst Actor for Lindell. Other winners included Robert Downey Jr. s big-budget fantasy flop, Dolittle (Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel), and steamy Netflix thriller, 365 Days, which was named Worst Screenplay (as if anyone, even its fans, cared that the film even had a screenplay!).Plus, in a nod to the absolute s tshow that was last year, the Razzies gave a special Governor s Awards to 2020 for being the worst calendar year, ever.The nine categories were voted for online by 1,097 Razzie members across all 50 U.S. states and more than 20 countries. Did they get the year s worst of the worst right? Let us know in the comments.Check out the full list of the 2021 Razzie winners below.

The Montagues and Capulets. The Hatfields and McCoys. Bette and Joan. Tay Tay and Kanye. The world has given us some epic feuds over the centuries, but do any even come close in scale to wise-cracking, abs-heavy, claws-vs.-katanas feud that has raged between X-Men Universe members Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman since the late 2000s? (Probably, definitely – but just go with us here.) In our latest episode of Vs., we’re getting into the beefcake battle that has dominated social media for over a decade: Funnyman Reynolds vs. showman Jackman, the Green Lantern vs. the Paperback Hero (Google it). To fairly adjudicate the long-running quarrel, our host Mark Ellis will compare the two well-rounded thesps on a number of criteria: Box office performance; Tomatometer and Audience Scores; iconic characters they’ve played; and their feuding abilities. Who will win ultimate bragging rights? And will this be the FINAL word in this actorly contest of brawn and barbs? Tune in to find out.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.
Another Sundance Film Festival is done and dusted and it s been unlike any other previous year. With several high dollar acquisitions – Amazon alone spent nearly million on new titles – much of what we saw in Utah will make its way to theaters this year. If you have been following along with our Sundance Scorecard, which shows Tomatometer scores for any Sundance title that got one after 5 reviews, you ll notice critics were loving Shia LaBeouf’s Honey Boy, Jennifer Kent’s Babadook follow-up The Nightingale, Lulu Wang’s Awkwafina-led dramedy The Farewell, and Mindy Kaling s Late Night. Only four of the 2018 Sundance films made it to the Oscars this year, but chances are we will be talking about at least one of the actors from the 2019 slate come awards time next year. And if the Academy doesn’t nominate one of our favorites? We might still be talking about it anyway (*cough* Toni Collette was robbed).Park City is the place for established stars to break from their typecast molds and give us something completely new. Pete Davidson, Armie Hammer, Awkwafina, and Octavia Spencer shook things up at this year s festival, while veterans like Emma Thompson reminded us of why we love them. These are our favorite performances from Sundance 2019.Awkwafina, Aoi Mizuhara, Diana Lin, Shuzhen Zhou in The Farewell (2019) 97%(Photo by Courtesy the Sundance Institute)In The Farewell, Awkwafina takes her first dramatic turn and although the Crazy Rich Asians star feared she wouldn t be able cry on cue, her muted performance repeatedly brought us to tears. The premise – a family organizes a fake wedding to gather everyone together following the grandmother’s terminal diagnosis (which she does not know about) – is tailor made for tearjerking dramedy, and Lulu Wang’s feature debut had critics laughing through their sobs. Awkwafina plays the ‘straight man,’ while the rest of the cast provides the laughs: Mizuhara as an trepidatious Japanese bride, Lin as a stern Chinese-American mother, and Zhou as the energetic grandmother oblivious to her family s trickery. We enjoyed the men of The Farewell, too, but the women – especially Zhou – give the film its humor and heart.Octavia Spencer in Luce (2019) 90%(Photo by JA/Everett Collection)In Luce, a former African child soldier turned model U.S. student is cast in an entirely new light when he submits a disturbing essay for a school project and his teacher, played by Spencer, deputizes herself as the one to discover the truth – by any means necessary. Spencer manifests the weight of cultural expectations in the role of her career. The taut physiological drama, adapted from J.C. Lee s play, places the weight of African-American ascension upon the shoulders of our eponymous lead and as the woman who chooses to spar with him, Spencer is defiant and vulnerable. She shares scenes with Kelvin Harrison Jr. (as Luce) involving thought-provocative dialogue that pose complex questions about race and expectations, and offers few simplistic answers. Is Spencer s Miss Wilson a dedicated teacher raising valid concerns after troubling warning signs? Or is she an overbearing self-appointed investigator desperately trying to find evidence to support her pre-determinations? We left Luce unable to say one way or the other, but convinced this was an exceptional addition to an already impressive career for Spencer.Geraldine Viswanathan in Hala (2019) 86%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Parrish Lewis)After the Blockers premiere in April 18 at SXSW we expected great things from Geraldine Viswanathan. The hands-down standout from the teen sex comedy, Viswanathan headed to Park City in the title role of Minhal Baig’s debut film Hala, the intimate story of a teenage girl who is struggling to find balance as a Pakistani teen living in America raised in a strict Muslim household. Viswanathan once again shows her comedic chops as the sarcastic first-generation immigrant, but also thrives when placed squarely against her competing ideologies. In the seams of both is where her character eventually finds herself. The film s portrayal of a teen struggling with her disapproving mother, played against an exploration of sex, art, and religion, is not exactly groundbreaking, but it is refreshing to see it from a Muslim teenager s perspective. Viswanathan s acting and Baig s semi-autobiographical script give life and authenticity to a character we don’t often see represented on screen.Lupita Nyong’o in Little Monsters (2019) 79%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Ben King)Between this and Us, Lupita Nyong’o is going all in for horror in 2019. In Little Monsters, she plays a school teacher at an Australian elementary school who is on a field trip when a military accident unleashes a horde of zombies; she and the slacker uncle of one of her students are the only adults who can protect the kids against the brain-eaters. Trapped in a farm-themed amusement park with a wannabe musician and a degenerate children’s television host (Josh Gad), Nyong’o is the emotional anchor and heart of the film. This Aussie Shaun of the Dead fashions Nyong o as a mix of that film s Shaun and Walking Dead favorite Michonne’s badassness, and the Black Panther actress shows off some spectacular zombie-slaying and ukulele-playing skills: trust us when we say “Shake It Off” will never sound the same again.Jillian Bell and Utkarsh Ambudkar Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) 88%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Jon Pack)Brittany ran the marathon, but Jillian Bell stole the show. Ever since the first season of Workaholics, we have been cracking up from the comedienne’s antics and broad humor. Bell gives a star-making performance as Brittany, an overweight twentysomething who gets a wake-up call when a bogus doctor’s visit to score Adderall results in warnings about her health and wellbeing. With every mile she runs in preparation for the New York Marathon, we watch Britanny make herself over, and by the end, all of us are ready to cheer her to the finish line. While training for the marathon, she meets Jern, played by Utkarsh Ambudkar, and while we don’t want to give too much away, the verbal sparring between these two provides some of the biggest laughs in the film. Not saying that everyone will run a marathon after watching it, but plenty will want to give it a try.Noah Jupe in Honey Boy (2019) 94%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Natasha Braier)Noah Jupe has quietly become one of the most acclaimed child actors in Hollywood. At only 13, he has starred in two bona fide hits (A Quiet Place and Wonder) and racked up stellar reviews for his work. Honey Boy is about to take him to the next level. Shia LaBeouf’s semi-autobiographical retelling of his tumultuous childhood has the young Brit playing LaBeouf in his formative years, while Boy Erased actor Lucas Hedges plays the adult version in Alma Har el s first narrative feature. Hedges provides the contemporary context, but much of the narrative rests entirely on Jupe’s teenaged shoulders – and he goes toe-to-toe with LaBeouf, who plays a version of his own father. More than a vanity project, Honey Boy is a smart and candid depiction of a former child star’s bad behavior and damaged childhood with an incredibly gifted young performer at its center.Emma Thompson in Late Night (2019) 79%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Emily Aragones)Dame Emma Thompson as a highbrow late-night talk show host is the kind of genius casting that you didn’t know you needed in your life. Screenwriter and co-star Mindy Kaling said that she wrote Thompson’s part as a piece of fan fiction, and the result is a Dame Emma fangirl’s dream come true. Witty, sarcastic, brilliant – the British thespian here is part Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada, part David Letterman. Kaling plays the wide-eyed new writer who desperately wants to win her boss’s affection, and Thompson s constant dismissal of her eternal cheerfulness is side-splittingly funny. More than just an ‘Iron Lady,’ Thompson also shows signs of tenderness behind the derision in this uncynical crowdpleaser. Sold to Amazon for a whopping million, Late Night looks to run The Big Sick’s playbook to similar box office success and maybe some award buzz for our Dame.Pete Davidson in Big Time Adolescence (2019) 85%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute )It’s fair to say going into Sundance that we did not think that SNL s Pete Davidson would make this list. But in Big Time Adolescence, Davidson plays the worst version of his assumed identity and shows real range. Another tale of arrested development, Big Time Adolescence is about a drug-addled man child – Davidson s Zeke – who befriends the only person who still thinks he’s cool, his ex-girlfriend’s teenage brother. Picture James Franco’s Daniel from Freaks and Geeks with tattoos, dyed blonde hair, and less charm. The predictable antics ensue, and his young protégé Mo (Griffin Glick) begins to see the cracks in the bravado and realizes that Zeke’s laid-back persona is just a mask for his perpetual f up status. Davidson is a brilliant comedic actor, and his timing is never off beat in the kind of role that Saturday Night Live players have often used to catapult to superstardom. Charismatic, hilarious, and at times painful to watch, the actor shows what he is capable of doing and we re intrigued to see what he does next.Armie Hammer in Wounds (2019) 47%Of all the big departure performances at this year’s festival, Armie Hammer’s turn in Wounds was the most dramatic. In Babak Anvari’s follow-up to Under the Shadow, Hammer plays Will, an apathetic alcoholic bartender who picks up a lost cellphone, unlocks it, and gets his life changed forever. In really gnarly ways. Light years away from anything else he’s done, Hammer is a hulking, sweaty, paranoid mess in this genuinely terrifying horror thriller. At 69% on the Tomatometer, reactions to the film have been mixed overall, but praise for Hammer has been universal. His first dip into horror sees the Call Me By Your Name star creeping everyone out and ditching his dreamboat persona for cockroaches and gore. 英雄联盟手游上线至今已经有四个月的时间了，在这四个月的时间里有无数玩家体验了这款游戏。虽说国服迟迟未能上线，但是依旧有大量国内玩家开着加速器去外服体验了这款游戏。很多玩家在体验过英雄联盟手游后觉得操作感跟王者荣耀差很多，很多时候玩起来感觉操作很蹩脚但是有说不出来原因。这也是很多玩家吐槽英雄联盟手游的点，难道是拳头的设计师们并不了解手游，设计出了不适合手游的操作模式？
