Experiencing the first few glimpses of the upcoming Disney+ series The Mandalorian was an overwhelming experience for fans at Star Wars Celebration Chicago on Sunday. But it also proved their faith in series creator Jon Favreau and the contributions of Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni was rewarded. And as both reiterated throughout the presentation, they are both giant fans of Star Wars.“I was born in 1975, so I’m a product of this,” added star Pedro Pascal, who recalled meeting with Favreau and Filoni before he was cast. Describing a room filled with storyboards and illustrations of the proposed series, he said his immediate reaction was “What do you want me to do? Play that bug or that robot?” only to be overwhelmed when they said they wanted him to play the Mandalorian. Pascal mimed fainting to describe the sensation of being offered the lead role.But that was just one of the surprises unveiled during the presentation, complete with a Mandalorian sizzle reel exclusive for those inside the Celebration Stage in Chicago. Luckily, we were there and can offer you some of the things we learned about the show.1. Pascal Is the Mandalorian With No Name(Photo by Lucasfilm)Filoni and Favreau are fans of Star Wars, but they’re also found of the series antecedents in Western movies and samurai films. Maintaining a tradition from those genres, Pascal’s Mandalorian has no name. It is unclear if his identity will be revealed later, but Filoni, Favreau, and Pascal referred to him only as “The Mandalorian.” He’s a mysterious, lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy,” Pascal explained. “Some would say he has questionable moral character.”In one of the exclusive clips shown, the Mandalorian takes a meeting with Greef Carga (Carl Weathers), the leader of a bounty hunters guild in that section of space. During the meeting, the Mandalorian tries to take all of the bounties Carga has on offer, which the guild leader finds excessive. But it echoes back to the gunslingers from the Westerns Pascal said Favreau assigned him to watch as part of the preparation for the series.“He’s a badass,” Pascal added. “[Jon and Dave] have created an incredible, iconic character.”In an extended clip shown only at the Celebration Stage, fans heard the Mandalorian speak for the first time. In a detail which will thrill long-time fans, his cadence matches the one Boba Fett spoke with back in The Star Wars Holiday Special and the original versions of The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi. Of course, that cadence is inspired from another iconic film persona. “He’s got a lot of Clint Eastwood in him,” Pascal said.2. Carl Weathers Plays a Bounty Hunter Guild Leader(Photo by Lucasfilm)For an added surprise, Favreau revealed Weathers’ involvement in the series and introduced him to the stage. After a spontaneous outpouring of love from the crowd — who started cheering for the Apollo Creed actor by that character’s name — Weather’s found himself overwhelmed.“Nothing comes close to this,” he said after the roar died down.Weather’s Greef Carga is “looking for someone to bring back a product for a client which is very valuable,” Weathers explained. “He finds the Mandalorian, and that guy gets done what needs to be done.”In the clip, Carga refers the Mandalorian to a “sensitive client” who demands face-to-face contact with the bounty hunter. Despite the tense situation, their interaction seemed friendly enough. Or at least as friendly as one can be when talking to a masked man with no name.3. Werner Herzog and Giancarlo Esposito Are Imperials(Photo by Lucasfilm)The client turns out to be the character played by Werner Herzog. The legendary director, who recently turned to acting in things like The Mandalorian, recently said he plays a “small part” as a villain, but in the clip, it turns out he represents a faction of the deposed Empire.“It was really compelling to me what happens after the celebration of the Empire falling,” Favreau explained before the clip. “The revolution was successful, but then what happens?”As it turns out, the answer is at least partially inspired from the Expanded Universe interpretation of the post-Empire era. Factions known as the Imperial Remnant continue to flex their might in sectors not as tied to the Rebellion or the emerging New Republic. In the clip, the Mandalorian finds Herzog’s character guarded by stormtroopers. The gleam may be off their white armor, but they still appear battle ready when another Imperial agent (played by Omid Abtahi) enters the room. Guns are drawn, but Herzog defused the situation.He also offers the Mandalorian a few details about his quarry; offering him a locator and the last four digits of the bounty’s gene marker. The preference is to bring the bounty in alive, but Herzog tells the Mandalorian he will accept proof of the mark’s death for a reduced fee. The other Imperial is not impressed by this change in their plan.In the subsequent sizzle reel, Herzog can be heard asking “are things better since the revolution?” Amid scenes of violence and fire (all narrated by Herzog stating his belief in the Empire), Giancarlo Esposito’s character appears. While also unnamed, his uniform also identifies him as part of the Imperial Remnant. He orders a stormtrooper to ignite his flamethrower and flush out someone from a dwelling. A subsequent shot also reveals Esposito in a TIE fighter.4. The Show Will Feel Gritty(Photo by Lucasfilm) While Favreau and Filoni kept name-checking the campy Holiday Special as an inspiration — indeed, the Mandalorian s rifle is a direct lift from the Special s Boba Fett cartoon — Filoni mentioned the show will have a gritty feel to it. This came through in the sizzle reel, which included dusty village streets, old stations covered in snow, and plenty of run-down technology abandoned and weathering.The overall look evokes the original Star Wars — right down to one shot which may or may not be the original film’s Mos Eisley cantina — which was very much the thing Favreau said he wanted to accomplish with The Mandalorian. But he added that Filoni is making him more of a fan of the Prequel aesthetic as well.5. Gina Carrano Plays Ex-Rebel Shock Trooper Cara Doone(Photo by Lucasfilm)The sizzle reel also offered the first clear look at Gina Carano’s Cara Dune.“She’s an ex-Rebel shock trooper,” Carano explained. “[She’s] a bit of a loner — which is a stretch — and [she] is having a bit of trouble reintegrating into society.”In the preview, the Mandalorian spots her in a cantina, much to his displeasure. The two end up fighting in an alley and eventually draw blasters on one another. It is unclear if this is the beginning of a partnership or a rivalry, but her Mando-inspired shoulder guards suggest there may be some sort of bond.Well, provided the Mandalorian really is what he claims. In his scene, Herzog s character infers the person under than armor may not be a true Mandalorian.6. The Mandalorian’s Ship, the Razorcrest, Is a Practical Effect(Photo by Lucasfilm)Glimpsed briefly in the clip shown early in the presentation, Favreau offered a few details about the Mandalorian’s ship, the Razorcrest. Details he said “most people won’t even know, but we knew you’d appreciate it.”The twin-engine ship will be the title character’s key vehicle, but making it was a labor of love between Favreau, Filoni, and the group at ILM when the executive producer made one request: “Can we shoot a model?”Stymied in using old-school techniques on movies like Iron Man, he was thrilled when Lucasfilm let it happen and the ILM crew became obsessed with creating the ship as a miniature. Parts were kit-bashed from other model kits, just as they did back in the 1970s, while other elements used cutting edge techniques and 3D printing. Members of the ILM team manufactures long-retired motion-control camera rigs in their garages while higher-ups like John Knoll sat in on planning meetings to bring the Razor Crest to life.That dedication to detail was one of the key things Favreau wanted to pull off with The Mandalorian. On screen, it means little throwbacks to the film series. In the extended clip, a food vendor can be seen roasting Kowakian monkey-lizard — Salacious Crumb’s species — and in the sizzle reel, a droid who may or may not be legendary bounty hunter IG-88 gets in on the action as he swivels his torso to take on attackers in a 360-degree arc of fire. Additionally, plenty of familiar aliens are realized with creature effect make-up. There s even a gonk droid hanging out with the Imperials.“We used a lot of tech from Iron Man, The Jungle Book, and even The Lion King,” Favreau said. “But Star Wars, at its core, has to feel handmade. So there are animatronics and puppetry.”“All that passion trickled down,” Carano added. “Jon would well up with tears explaining how much a scene meant [to him], and you felt like you were part of something special. Everybody in every department would be there for 17-hour days. And you wanted to be there because it was worth it. It had this magic. I always want to work with is people passionate about what they’re doing.”That sense of passion was clear from the material Favreau brought to stage. With the film series taking a pause after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian will be the key live-action Star Wars product and it looks like it will be a worthy torchbearer.The Mandalorian will launch on Disney+ on November 12, 2019.亚博官网自打手游LOL上线之时就成了玩家眼中抗衡王者荣耀的一款游戏，说起LOL和王者荣耀，这两款游戏的纠纷由来已久。两方阵营的玩家在网上的骂战层出不穷，但奈何LOL和王者荣耀一个是端游一个手游，根本评判不出个结果。而手游LOL上线之后，立刻成为了LOL玩家眼中抗衡王者荣耀的游戏。手游LOL上线之初，不少人都觉得王者荣耀这下要在手游LOL面前翻个大跟斗了。
King of the New Crop: Grinch Steals the Weekend With Million In His Sack(Photo by © Universal)Eighteen years ago, Ron Howard’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas, with Jim Carrey, opened to million on Nov. 17. It went on to do 4.72 times that business and gross over 0 million domestically. Illumination Entertainment, the animation studio behind Despicable Me, The Secret Life of Pets, and Sing, has a five-film winning streak when it comes to titles besting that Grinch number. (That includes two billion-dollar films and one that came up just million shy.) Funnily enough, the last film Illumination release that did not hit the 0 million mark was Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, which still made 4 million in the spring of 2012 (and was the 11th highest-grossing film of that year.)Their second pass at Dr. Seuss, The Grinch, earned million over the weekend. That is less than The Lorax’s .2 million start, but that is probably neither here nor there as The Grinch is well placed for the holidays, even with families going to be divided over the coming weeks with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Ralph Breaks the Internet. Final grosses for animated films that opened in the - million range in November are a bit all over the map – with Frozen on the high end (0.7 million total), and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa on the low (0 million). Those films received better reviews from critics than The Grinch, though, which sits at 54% on the Tomatometer, making it the fourth almost-Fresh for Illumination after The Lorax (54%), Minions (56%), and Despicable Me 3 (59%). We’ll get more of a sen

(Photo by Justin Bettman )Writer and producer Tarell Alvin McCraney is clear that he is no activist. Despite a body of work that often grapples with topics of belonging and community, codeswitching and survival, and freedom and healing, the Oscar-winning scribe of the Barry Jenkins–directed Moonlight is just committed to reflecting the world as it is, particularly for those poor, Black, and queer. Therein lies the importance of his television drama David Makes Man, which returns for its second season on the Oprah Winfrey Network this Tuesday. Focused on the struggle to survive in a world that would rather see Black people snuffed out by systematic and systemic oppression, the series is perhaps the realest and most liberating show on TV making plain a vision for the future, and the present, that holds, like a grandmother’s embrace, all of its people.“As an artist who definitely wants to learn and be affected by all of the activism in the world, I try to allow that to make me brave enough to at least bring up the questions that I don t have answers to,” McCraney says of creating work in this moment of ongoing social unrest. That means not “rehashing anything that we know is right or wrong in this work, like the prison industrial complex,” he says. It’s about more nuanced questions, says the writer and series executive producer. “How does [the prison industrial complex] harm our communities, and whom does it harm? And in what ways? And are there other possibilities, like whose voices can be lifted or not in these moments? I was like, ‘I m scared of that question, but at the same time, I m going to talk about it.’” (Photo by Rod Millington / ©2018 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. )The first season of David Makes Man centered on a 14-year-old prodigy named David (played exquisitely by Akili McDowell), who lives in the projects of Miami and who is haunted by the death of a father figure and mentor. Bussed out of his community to a mostly white school, David is forced to embody two personas: one to navigate the streets that raised him, and another to succeed in the education system that may offer him a way out. With a strong ensemble cast including Alana Arenas, Isaiah Johnson, Travis Coles, and icon Phylicia Rashad, the series was a critical darling — season 1 is Certified Fresh at 100% on the Tomatometer — and nabbed a Peabody.In season 2 of the series executive produced by Michael B. Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, and showrunner Dee Harris-Lawrence, David is now a rising businessman in his 30s (played by Kwame Patterson) who must choose between the instincts that helped him survive adolescence or finding a new way to live. Ahead of the season’s premiere, Rotten Tomatoes spoke with McCraney about the decision to jump 15 years in the narrative, how the 2020 social uprising and pandemic impacted the show’s storytelling, and the subtle and overt ways queerness shows up in the show.Tre’vell Anderson for Rotten Tomatoes: At the end of season 1, David is still a teenager in school; we start season 2 almost two decades later. Talk to me about the motivation behind that choice. Tarell Alvin McCraney: The decision was in the making of the show. One of the initial passes at the last episode of season 1 was to do a little fast-forward, so you would see David dealing with the issues he had experienced in season 1. So even in the initial pitch, when I spoke to Ms. Winfrey and MBJ, my thought was: I want to show how we pick up these skills. I want to show how the Kobes of the world, the LeBrons, the Ryan Cooglers, how these very particular genius-folk get from being where they are in the communities that they grow up in to navigating mostly white society in these various different ways.In order to do that, I want us to look at how trauma can sort of take a snapshot of who you are in that moment, that moment when the bear attacks, the look on your face and your reaction, and how you keep replicating that moment throughout time, and how you are still that 13-year-old, that 14-year-old, that 15-year-old, even as you re an adult now dealing with your own child, or dealing with your spouse, or dealing with your boss. You re now dealing with them as if it s that moment of collision all because you ve been triggered and haven t found a way to let go of that, or work through it, or find another way. That was always the aim.And rather than make it clinical, you will see David seemingly successful with the trappings of success all around, surviving [but] still not living fully, still thinking everything is a life-or-death situation, still thinking that they ve got to be the best at everything and not taking the time to learn, to be wrong, to be still. There s that meme that s been going around just last week of like, “The best thing we can do for ourselves is to find what triggers us, so that we don t enact those traumas onto other people.” Well, I couldn t have said it better myself for good ol’ David: he has yet to take that time to, as my grandma would say, look back over his life and think things over. That was always the purpose and now we re here, in this chapter of David s life, doing just that. (Photo by Rod Millington / 2021 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved.)Rotten Tomatoes: The last time I spoke with you was in the lead up to the series premiere and we talked about the masks we, as Black people, sometimes learn to wear to navigate various spaces. In what ways does that concept manifest for David now?McCraney: In the same way. That s the problem, right? There are moments that you ll see 15-year-old David bring grown self and not really living through grown self, but just wearing it. Same kid, same terrified, same insecure, same childlike imagination. And in some ways, that s great. I mean, who is that friend that can be like, Hey Tre vell, and in the way that they say it, a part of you fully [transports back to that time, even as] it may not be able to in the flesh because we ve grown or changed or shifted our hair or now we got a different eyeliner than we used to wear when we were 15.But as Missy Elliott says, Same teeth, same hoop earrings. Within us, there is a person that is connected to that part of our lives, and that is in there sometimes popping up and not. The masks we put on to go out and be, Oh, I m grown, but that kid s still in there somewhere. And is he OK? Or is he running around terrified? And if you don t stop him from being terrified, if we are not comforting that part of ourselves, I think some real stress and some real damage can happen. It s been thrilling actually doing all of this cause, I swear, it s like affirming to me some of the work I needed to do with myself, but also talking about the ways in which our society, our communities, don t allow this kind of inward looking.Rotten Tomatoes: Production resumed in October after the social uprisings of last summer. Did any of that, or the pandemic, impact the storytelling and ideas you all decided to surface?McCraney: We don t write directly about those times, but a lot of those issues come up, be it care, be it closeness, be it community, be it gentrification. Police reform comes up. One of the things that we kept talking about was, “Who are we at this moment?” and someone asked me earlier today, “Am I an activist?” and I was like, I can t claim that. I feel like activists are superheroes. That s like asking me if I m an Avenger. You’ve got to have a certain skill set and the ones who are out there saving our lives and making space, they have a certain skill set and their analysis is on point.(Photo by Rod Millington / 2021 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved.)Rotten Tomatoes: But you have spoken before about purposefully making a show that will stoke very necessary conversations that we as Black people need to have. You and the team seem to have perfected the ability to reflect the specificity of Black trauma in a way that doesn’t feel harmful, and I can see how people might see that as activism. McCraney: Well, how do I talk about the fact that every time I wanted to make a show about a 30-year-old Black man, people were like, Well, Black men don t watch TV. OK, I recognize that the world thinks that; however, if they did, if for some reason a whole bunch of Black people sat around and watched this, what would I want us to be doing? Certainly not just crying the entire time, or certainly not just bemoaning a lot of the pain that we ve been through. Do I want to be in the reality of it? Sure. But I also want to be pointing at a path towards healing. I want to be a part of families being able to come together and watch together and engage together and have dialogue together in a way that may be uncomfortable, but it s not suffering.Where s the line of uncomfortability, but not suffering? bell hooks talks about that in All About Love, that that s love. The intention is that I can make myself uncomfortable in order for you or somebody I love to grow and to be nurtured, but the moment I’m suffering in order for you to be growing or be nurtured, that s not love. So, I don t want anybody to be suffering or having to suffer through what I m doing. Uncomfortability I can take. Uncomfortability is where the growth happens anyway.(Photo by Rod Millington / 2018 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved.)Rotten Tomatoes: One of the many beautiful things about this show is its creativity and imagination, its extremely cinematic in approach. What are the conversations you have with the writers room about ensuring that?McCraney: Well, that s the job. That’s the agreement of our show that s different from other shows. There are plenty of shows about people who grew up in the hood. There are plenty of shows about police officers who used to be in the hood. There are plenty of shows about architects who are developing the neighborhoods in which they grew up. We have those shows, but we don t have shows about when the young person who may or may not become a part of the drug operation is trying to do their homework and starts imagining their lineage through water and earth. We don t have those moments, and not because they re not there. I thought, this is where I d love for us to see it and feel it, and remember it. And even though we don t experience the world exactly like David, I am sure that the corner boys have imaginations. I m sure that the corner boys imagined different things than what they re seeing right in front of them. I m sure of it because some of them ended up writing dope rhymes that we listen to. I m sure that the little girls who are playing double dutch one minute and dodging bullets in another, imagine things different and feel things different and wish they could say something like this in their head, but can t in real life. I m sure the mothers who may have been addicted to drugs and are trying to get past that obstacle for the benefit of their children and themselves, sometimes imagine a world that is completely different than the obstacles that they face. And that s our remit, that s our job to explore the interiority of those folks and how their resilience to get through those things can be so compelling, amazing, but also exhausting, tiring. And that maybe there are other things, and other ways and other tools that we need, once we have survived those things, to live. (Photo by Rod Millington / 2021 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved.)Rotten Tomatoes: I find that the way queerness is incorporated to the show, in both subtle and overt ways, to also be something special. It feels intentional.McCraney: I m glad you brought that up. In full transparency, one of the things that we did early in the first season is engage with consultants on the show. I was like, Yeah, I m queer and I m here, but I want another opinion. I don t want to be the only person refracting back. There were queer people in our writers room, but I also asked Hari [Ziyad] to be a consultant. And so in the way you re talking about it, in the writers room, in the creative process, we had queer reflections in many ways, some that were visible and some [that weren’t]. That was really important to me that it would be reflected in the show because it, again, reminded me of growing up. There were just so many ways that queerness was around me all the time. Sometimes it was talked about. Sometimes it was admonished. Sometimes it was celebrated. But it was just always there.Again, that s why I always say I’m not an activist. Activism takes a great deal of intentionality – and so does art, but also sometimes it s just the way you see it. Sometimes you just go, I see it this way and I m going to paint it that way cause it s easier. How do I be as truthful to this as possible and make sure that I can maintain it with all the respect and love that I can? I feel really honored that [people] think I m some super genius that is figuring this stuff out, but queerness finds a way to be in the picture anyway.David Makes Man season 2 premieres on OWN on Tuesday June 22, 2021.

Monday morning saw a brief appearance from Harley Quinn in the form of actor Margot Robbie in a costume test video similar to the one released when Joaquin Phoenix first assumed the Arthur Fleck identity for his upcoming Joker film. The use of the costume test video may not be a coincidence as Harley and Robbie’s next film, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), will presumably see the cinematic Harley shed her Mistah J for keeps.But the video also offered a few quick looks at some of the other castmembers – this is a Birds of Prey film after all – so let’s take a look at what we know about the production so far and glean what we can from their introductions to the world via the video.The Premise(Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp. courtesy Everett Collection)Based on a concept originally created by DC Comics editor Jordan B. Gorfinkel and Batman comics writer Chuck Dixon – and later expanded upon by writer Gail Simone – the Birds of Prey consisted of three people: former Batgirl Barbara Gordon, a Gotham City vigilante known as the Huntress, and long-time Justice Leaguer Black Canary. In the guise of Oracle, Barbara sent Huntress and Black Canary on missions while coordinating from her watchtower in Gotham. The concept proved popular. It also defined Barbara’s role in the DC Universe for decades to come.The film will follow the same basic idea with one notable change in the dynamic: the apparent absence of Barbra Gordon. Which leaves one to wonder if Harley will join the team or create it herself?The Team(Photo by Margot Robbie)As plans solidified, Birds of Prey quickly evolved into a Harley Quinn feature. The character was a break-out star in Warner Bros. Suicide Squad and the studio wasted no time securing Robbie for more adventures as Harley, leading to a production deal. Initially, the plan was to spin her off into a film based on the Gotham City Sirens concept Harley teaming up with Poison Ivy and Catwoman with Suicide Squad director David Ayer slated to direct. This soon changed into a feature for Harley and Jared Leto’s Joker and a Birds of Prey film. In April of 2018, Cathy Han agreed to direct the picture after Robbie championed her to the studio.On November 20, 2018, Robbie released a photo to her Instagram declaring the full title as Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), confirming the film would focus on the one-time criminal. Warner Bros. quickly confirmed the new subtitle was no joke.But shortly before the title reveal, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollett-Bell joined the cast as Huntress and Black Canary. As mentioned above, the characters are key elements of the Birds of Prey concept. Based on an alternate-Earth daughter of Batman and Catwoman, the modern Huntress debuted in 1985 as Helena Bertinelli, the daughter of a mobster who sought revenge on Gotham’s organized crime apparatus. Armed with crossbows, she did plenty of damage and eventually came to Batman’s attention. She eventually steered away from vigilantism, joining the Birds of Prey and, eventually, the Justice League.(Photo by Warner Bros.)In the clear shots of Winstead in the teaser, we see her working with crossbows; but the rest of Helena s nun-inspired costume appears to be left behind in the comics. It suggests a continuation of Suicide Squad s aesthetic with a further grounding of the characters looks.Backing Helena up is Smollett-Bell as Black Canary. As the character dates back to the Golden Age of Comics – August 1947’s Flash Comics #86 to be exact – her history is a little more complicated thanks to various revisions and reboots. But the most stable elements remain across her various versions: Dinah Lance is an accomplished second generation hero with an impressive metahuman sonic cry. Granted, she has been known to lose her power at the whim of editors and writers. Nonetheless, she eventually led the Justice League for a time; putting her in the top tier of DC superheroes.In the teaser, we see Smollett-Bell’s Black Canary with a microphone, suggesting the script will take its cues from the 2015 Black Canary series, in which Dinah traded in her work at a secretive government agency to front a struggling rock band. Considering the stylish look of artist Annie Wu’s work on that title, it makes for a great starting place with film’s first live action take on Black Canary.The Allies(Photo by Warner Bros.)While the team was typically made of Oracle, Black Canary, and the Huntress, other heroes joined the group for specific missions and occasional long-term stints. It seems the film will honor this by adding Rosie Perez as Detective Renee Montoya and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain.Montoya first appeared as a beat cop in the 1990s Batman: The Animated Series, but soon made the leap to comics, eventually making detective and joining Gotham City’s Major Crimes squad in the pages of the marvelous Gotham Central series. She also eventually adopted the identity of The Question when its originator, Vic Sage, died halfway up a snowy mountain. Of course, that was a universe or two ago, but ideas like that never permanently disappear.In the video, Perez brandishes a baton, backing up earlier descriptions of the character as working for the Gotham City Police Department. We’ll assume she is on an active hunt for Harley, but eventually allies with her and the rest of the team.(Photo by Warner Bros.)Finally, Basco will play Cassandra Cain, proving Batgirl is represented in the film just not the one you d expect. The character debuted in the 1999 Batman storyline No Man s Land. She adopted the Batgirl identity after Helena was forced to abandon it for reasons too complicated to get into here. But both used the same costume – an all black suit with a full mask and a yellow bat-shaped outline emblazoned on the uniform s chest. The full mask truly set Cassandra apart as she was initially mute, but since her father was an infamous assassin who trained Batman in his younger days, Cassandra was a born fighter and swiftly welcomed into the Bat family. She eventually found a voice and traded in the Batgirl identity for Black Bat. Nowadays, she is known as Orphan. In the teaser, we see a younger Cassandra brandishing a cast, but nonetheless poised for a fight. It seems she is a long way from adopting the Batgirl identity – or any costumed look for that matter – but will be able to take care of herself when the inevitable fighting occurs. According to reports, she will discover an item which sets the plot into motion.The Bad Guys(Photo by Warner Bros.)The item Cassandra reportedly finds is a diamond belonging to Roman Sionis, a Gotham crimelord also known as Black Mask. As seen in the teaser, Ewan McGregor will lend his looks and talents to the part. Considering his alter ego’s cryptic mask, you might expect some sort of terrible disfigurement to befall Sionis at some point. It could happen, but in the comics, most of his scars are internal.Now better known thanks to his time on Fox’s Gotham series, Victor Zsasz has been one of the more interesting second-tier villains to come to prominence since his 1992 debut. He is a nihilistic serial killer who cuts tally marks in his skin to keep his kill count fresh in his mind. It is unclear if Zsasz (played in the teaser and Birds of Prey film by Chris Messina) will work with Sionis the way his Gotham counterpart (played by Anthony Carrigan) worked with the various members of that series’ organized crime world, but it would not be a shock.(Photo by Warner Bros.)Meanwhile, there is still the possibility the Joker will show up to spoil the party. For one thing, if the film really is the Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, that separation from an overriding presence in her life cannot happen off screen. And even if she claims it did, Joker isn’t the sort to just let her disappear. Then again, there is a haunting story in the pages of the Injustice comic book in which Harley reveals to Black Canary that she left Joker for a year to have their daughter. When she returned, he never noticed she was gone But Black Mask’s presence also suggests a surprise return of Mistah J. In the 2013 video game Batman: Arkham Origins, Sionis is presented as the main antagonist until Joker reveals it was all just a ruse to draw Batman out into a direct confrontation. It is always possible Joker could be using this tactic on Harley.Granted, that’s just speculation. It is just as likely that Harley’s emancipation is from a life of crime by joining (or forming) the Birds of Prey and stopping Sionis plan.Meanwhile, the tease leaves us with one new mystery: the woman holding the bat. It’s far too early to speculate on that shot in any meaningful way, but it is worth noting Birds of Prey (and the Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and the current Batgirl script were written by the same person: Bumblebee’s Christina Hodson.Birds of Prey (and the Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is currently scheduled to open on February 7, 2020.
Alfred Hitchcock famously made cameos in nearly all of his films. As far as trailers for those films went, though, he often made much more than a cameo – he was the star. “Hitch” led audiences on a tour through the Bates home and motel for the famous trailer for his 1960 chiller Psycho and, in a trailer for The Birds, jovially lectured us on the ways humans have helped our winged friends over the years – making hats of them, putting them in gilded cages… even making meals of them. (It was never going to end well.)For this episode of Rotten Tomatoes’ new video series, ‘Trailers Reloaded,’ we’re reliving the best of Hitchcock’s trailers – for films like Psycho and The Birds, Dial M for Murder and To Catch a Thief. It’s a journey back through time that offers a fascinating perspective on how movie advertising has changed, and one that proves the Master of Suspense was also a masterful builder of audience anticipation.In Trailers Reloaded you can re-experience your own awesome sense of anticipation for some of the biggest movies ever, with collections of trailers ranging from Hitchcock classics right through to the Harry Potter movies and Marvel’s epic teasers for the films of the MCU. The series is just one of many new series you can find on The Rotten Tomatoes Channel, now available on The Roku Channel and Peacock, and soon to be available on XUMO TV, and beyond.

The Film Won t Be a Direct Adaptation of Any Single Game in the FranchiseHere’s the official synopsis, via Lionsgate: Lilith, an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas. Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland, a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina, a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg, Tina s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis, the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap, a persistently wiseass robot. These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they ll be fighting for something more: each other. While several of the characters in the film Lilith, Roland, Tannis, Moxxi, and Claptrap, for starters all appeared in the first Borderlands game, others like Tiny Tina, Krieg, Sir Hammerlock, and Wainwright Jakobs made their debut in later installments, indicating a mish-mash of characters from across the series. Fans of the games will also point out that we ve never met Atlas, the presumed founder of the Atlas Corporation, in any of the Borderlands installments, though Édgar Ramírez has been cast for that role in the film.Likewise, the story itself doesn t draw directly from any of the games, either, as the heroes of the film would seem more concerned with rescuing a missing girl than hunting for a Vault, per se. That said, the girl in question does hold the key to unimaginable power, which could be a reference to a Vault Key, bringing the story back to its video game roots, but the overall narrative looks to be wholly original. We ll have a clearer picture when more details or a trailer are released. Speaking of which There s No Trailer or Release Date YetBecause filming just finished, Borderlands does not have a trailer yet. The pictures of the silhouettes, along with another image of a little Claptrap model celebrating the end of shooting, are the only visuals fans have to go on — for now, at least. We’ll update this post with lots of additional details once there’s a trailer.There is also no official release date for Borderlands yet, though some sources have it dated for next year, which seems likely.On an Apple device?
