(Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic)Another year, another Academy Awards – but this was one we don t think we ll be getting over any time soon. The 92nd Academy Awards will go down in the history books, with Bong Joon-ho s Parasite becoming the first ever foreign-language movie to win Best Picture. And while Parasite s four wins were definitely major highlights of the host-free ceremony – not just because of Joon-ho s promises to get royally wasted after the event – they weren t the only big moments in a night that was marked by some genuinely funny presenters, megastar wins, and a feeling that the right people and movies were winning in the right categories.Recommended: The Full List of 2020 Oscar Winners and NominationsRecommended: The 2020 Oscars Red Carpet GalleryRecommended: The 2020 Best Picture Nominees, Ranked by TomatometerRecommended: All the Winners of the Golden Tomato AwardsThe moments began before the ceremony itself, with Natalie Portman s Dior cape making one of the few political statements of the night (with the exception of Brad Pitt s first remarks upon accepting his award and Joaquin Phoenix s speech, this was a fairly politics-lite Oscars). And then they kept coming thick and fast: incredible music performances, a superhero super team, and shock wins.Check out our pick of the best moments of the 92nd Academy Awards below, and let us know what you thought of the show in the comments below. Natalia Portman Makes A Statement With Her Cape Full of Female Directors(Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImage) Those men might have been the ones congratulated by Issa Rae when the Best Director contenders were announced on nominations morning, but it was a group of talented ladies that was celebrated in a very special way on the red carpet on Oscars night. Natalie Portman arrived wearing a Dior cape that was embroidered with the names of a number of female directors who were snubbed by the Academy. Among those honored in Portman s gold stitching: The Farewell director Lulu Wang, Little Women director Greta Gerwig, Atlantics director Mati Diop, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood director Marielle Heller, Portrait of a Lady On Fire director Céline Sciamma, and Honey Boy director Alma Har el.Janelle Monáe Kicks Things Off With Mr. Rogers and Dancing DoppelgängersNo host doesn’t mean no killer opening musical number. The 2020 Oscars kicked off with Janelle Monáe – joined for a spell by Billy Porter – paying tribute to some of the year’s best films. Monáe entered the stage on a Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood-like set, pulled on a red cardigan, and sang “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”, before transitioning to her hit “Come Alive (The War of the Roses) surrounded by dancers dressed as the Joker, Queen and Slim, Midsommar cultists, and other characters from the year’s movies. Most awkward moment: Monáe trying to get audience members like Leo and Kathy Bates to sing into her mic. Best moments: The awesome finale and the sight of a family of Us doppelgängers dancing on the Oscars stage.Brad Pitt Tears Up As He Reflects On his Career, Accepting His Award for Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) 85%Brad Pitt was a lock for Best Supporting Actor leading into the night: The only question was – after a string of delightful acceptance speeches during the season – what would he say when he won? Pitt delivered, and then some, with a heartfelt speech in which he dedicated his win to his kids, celebrated his Once Upon A Time In Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino (“one of a kind”), and paid tribute to his co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, whom he hugged on his way to the stage. Reflecting on his own journey through the industry, from Thelma and Louise to now, Pitt told the room, “Once upon a time in Hollywood – ain’t that the truth.”Animated Short Hair Love Makes History as Director Matthew A. Cherry Salutes Kobe Bryant“Representation matters deeply, especially in cartoons,” said Hair Love producer Karen Rupert Toliver as she accepted the award for Best Short Film (Animated) and became the first Black woman ever to win an Oscar in any animation category. Toliver was joined on stage by writer, director, and producer of Hair Love, Matthew A. Cherry, who said he made the film to “normalize Black hair” and drew the crowd’s attention California’s CROWN Act, which would protect against discrimination based on hairstyling. Cherry, a former NFL player, dedicated the win to the late Kobe Bryant, saying, “May we all have a second act as great as his was.”Screenplay Surprises: Parasite (2019) 98% and Jojo Rabbit (2019) 80% Win Big Against the Big GunsSome pundits – ahem, us – predicted these two wins, but safer money had Quentin Tarantino winning Best Original Screenplay for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and Best Adapted Screenplay going to Greta Gerwig for Little Women. When Bong Joon-ho and Han Jin-won were announced as winners for Original Screenplay, the room erupted, with stars like Sandra Oh leaping to their feet to celebrate Parasite’s first win of the night. Joon-ho could barely contain his excitement, beaming as he stared at his award as if to say, “Is this really happening?”. Waititi dedicated his win to his mom – or, for Waititi, who signed off with the Maori greeting of “kia ora,” his mum – who introduced him to the book on which Jojo Rabbit was based, Caging Skies.MAYA RUDOLPH and Kristen Wiig Show Why They Should be the Next Oscar Hosts Though Billie Eilish Might not AgreeBy far the best presenters of the evening – and let’s be honest, perhaps of any awards show we’ve seen lately – were Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig, who presented the awards for Production Design and Costume Design. They kicked things off with a bit in which they said they were too upset, too steamed, to carry out their duties, before revealing they were acting! Why? To show the likes of Scorsese and Tarantino that they had the range to be cast in their films, of course: “We just wanted them to know we do more than comedy.” In their intro to the costume award, they then sang a medley of clothes-related tunes that ranged from “Vogue” and “Lady in Red” to Sisqo’s “Thong Song.” Hilarious. (The only person who wasn’t into it seemed to be singer Billie Eilish.)Laura Dern Wins First Oscar for Marriage Story (2019) 94% and Pays Tribute to Her ParentsIf it is hard to believe that three-time nominee Laura Dern hadn’t won an Oscar before tonight, it’s even harder to believe that she is now the first and only Oscar winner in her family – a family in which dad is Bruce Dern and mom is Diane Ladd. With an emotional Ladd watching on, Dern thanked the Academy for “the best birthday present ever” and saluted her mom and dad. “Some say never meet your heroes,” Dern said, “but I say if you’re really blessed, you get them as your parents.”Eminem Shows Up To Perform Lose Yourself, Because… Music?!(Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)Following a fairly earnest montage tribute to the power of songs in film introduced by Lin-Manuel Miranda (who was himself introduced by Anthony Ramos), Eminem took the stage for a room-shaking – and heavily censored – performance of “Lose Yourself.” The song, featured in 8 Mile, won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 2003, making Eminem the first hip hop artist to win an Academy Award. Why exactly the song was performed tonight, though, remains something of a mystery. Still, the crowd got into it, with the likes of Kelly Marie Tran and Gal Gadot moving and mouthing along. The same could not be said for Martin Scorsese, who appeared to find the song a little, er, sleepy.Cynthia Erivo Takes the Dolby Theatre to ChurchNot much to say about this: Just watch and listen as Cynthia Erivo performs the Oscar-nominated Stand Up from Harriet. The performance was followed in the commercial break by a well-timed trailer for Genius: Aretha, the upcoming History event in which Erivo plays Aretha Franklin.The Cats Cast Shows They Have a Sense of HumorWearing two costumes that perhaps the filmmakers should have gone with for the actual film, Cats co-stars Rebel Wilson and James Corden presented the award for Best Visual Effects. As cast members of the motion picture Cats, said Wilson, nobody more than us understands the importance of good visual effects. You ll remember that Cats went into theaters with its own effects unfinished.Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, and Ripley UniteGal Gadot, Brie Larson, and Sigourney Weaver had us dreaming of universe crossovers when they took the stage to introduce composer Eimear Nooneis, who led the orchestra as it played the snippets from Best Original Score nominees and in so doing became the first female to lead the orchestra in the Oscars’ history. The trio said they were going to start a Fight Club, and that men were invited, but Gadot warned: “The loser gets to answer questions from journalists about how it feels to be a woman in Hollywood.” Weaver added, “All women are superheroes.” Fittingly, Best Original Score went to Hildur Guðnadóttir for Joker, who became the third woman to win in the category.Joaquin Phoenix Gets His Oscar For Joker (2019) 68%, Quotes Brother River In Moving Talk of JusticeJoaquin Phoenix was quick to ask the crowd to stop as it rose to its feet after Olivia Colman – hilarious as ever in her intro – announced him as Best Actor for Joker. Phoenix was visibly moved by the honor, and took the opportunity on stage to talk about the unifying thread between so many political movements – whether fighting racism or gender inequality or fighting for queer, indigenous, or animal rights , we re talking about the fight against injustice, Phoenix said. He went on to talk about our responsibility to all sentient beings and the environment and finished his remarks, choking up a little, as he quoted a lyric written by his late brother River: “Run to the rescue with love and peace will follow.”Renée Zellweger s Comeback Is Complete It was not the most surprising win of the night, but it was one of the most moving. Renée Zellweger accepted the award in tribute to the woman she plays in Judy: Miss Garland this is certainly for you. Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite (2019) 98% Sweeps the Night, Becomes First Foreign-Language Movie to Win Best PictureParasite made history as the first foreign-language film to ever win Best Picture at the Oscars, crowning the evening with the night’s biggest award having already taken out Best International Feature, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Director for Bong Joon-ho. When Joon-ho accepted South Korea’s first ever win – off its first nomination – for Best International Feature Film (formerly Best Foreign Language Film) earlier in the night, he called upon the cast and crew of Parasite to stand and for the crowd to applaud their work, saying he was proud to be the first recipient of the award under its new name. He finished that acceptance speech in English, saying, “I’m ready for a drink tonight,” and later, accepting the award for Best Director, said, “I will be drunk until next morning.”During that speech, Joon-ho paid tribute to his fellow directing nominees, with particular affection given to Martin Scorsese, whose films Joon-ho said he had studied and inspired his love for film.Thumbnail images courtesy Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesWhat were your biggest highlights of the night? Tell us in the comments. Are you as obsessed with awards as we are? Check out our Awards Leaderboard for 2019/2020. (Photo by CJ Entertainment/TMS Entertainment)What are you most proud of in your career so far?I really liked the Criterion essay that I did, because it was a way to go deep on one film. And I feel that it probably could have been double the length because there s so much to say about Parasite. But it was really wonderful to have the opportunity to both write about what mattered to me and then also write freely in the style that I want to write in.I will say that the recent cover story that I did for The Hollywood Reporter, for Minari, it felt like a fairly big coup. It felt like a personal coup. Not specifically because it was my first cover story, although that was also a big deal, but because I don t consider interviewing to be my biggest forte. It was just nice being good at something that I m not traditionally very good at.What’s an under-the-radar show that you think more people should be watching?I really hope that people are watching Chad. It s a TBS comedy starring Nasim Pedrad. For whatever reason, it s connecting with me a lot more than PEN15. Maybe just because I feel as a 30-something woman, I can relate in a lot of ways much more to a 12-year-old boy than a 15-year-old girl.I think Pedrad is doing an amazing performance. And I m just really enjoying everything that this show is doing, which is this combination of a puberty comedy that s about a boy who s afraid of puberty and sex. And it s also set in an Iranian-American home, and it deals with identity issues in a slightly different way than a lot of these shows that we used to see before.What’s a Rotten thing you love – movie or TV?I feel like the Alicia Vikander Tomb Raider got a really bad rap. That was one of my favorite action movies of that year. And I feel there was this really raw intensity and the visceral-ity to a lot of the action scenes that you just don t get in a standard action film, especially when it stars a woman. I was really glad to hear it got a sequel.(Photo by Walt Disney/courtesy Everett Collection)What is your favorite series or movies from your childhood?I m going to be a super basic b h and say The Little Mermaid. I think it s just one of those primal bonding things where it was, one of the very first movies that I watched in school, I think in the first grade. And I both remember the pleasure of it as a viewer and also like a tiny baby critic.You had that instinct even as a kid?I was a very annoying child.Did you always imagine that you would become a critic?No, because I had this vague idea in my head that I wanted to be some sort of writer, starting from when I was a preteen. But also, I grew up in a very immigrant working-class home. And so whenever these adults would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I would say “a writer,” my mom would get really mad because she was like, Well, that s not a way that you can really make a living. Because she doesn t know anyone really who was making a living doing that.What was the first time you saw yourself on screen?I think that one of the very first times I sort of felt represented on screen, or could see a version of myself on screen was when I was six, I was deeply obsessed with the Beetlejuice cartoon. It was basically this super morbid girl who was hanging out with a decaying corpse and a skeleton. And had this one polite demeanor around her family and at school, and then to let her imagination go wild when she was alone in a room. And I really identified with that. I just also loved how adorably disgusting all of the animation was in the world.I do think that part of the reason why it was an animated character that I related to so strongly was that it s a lot easier to project things on to animated characters, including race, because I never thought of Lydia as white. I just thought of her as a pale-faced like me.But I think that in the way that this question is generally formulated and understood, I remember having a real wow moment when I first saw Margaret Cho do stand-up on TV. I think I was probably 12 or 13. As I reflect on things that I have seen around Asian-American women telling jokes and taking pride in her sense of humor and the talking of a very openly about things like sex, I just remember discovering Margaret Cho and feeling like the world had opened up in some really major way. She s a pop-culture icon. I will always stan.

Since its stellar start back in 2013, the Conjuring Universe has been a bumpy ride with critics. Even the Annabelle spin-offs have been met with a mix of positive and negative reviews. Now the third of that specific series, Annabelle Comes Home (the seventh in the overall cinematic universe), is itself garnering a mixture of responses. Some think its variety of monsters make for a fun outing, while others see the concept as too gimmicky and not scary enough for this brand of horror movie. One thing all seem to agree on, though, is that it’s full of more franchise fodder.Here’s what critics are saying about Annabelle Comes Home:How does it fit into the Conjuring Universe?A breath of fresh air for the Conjuring Universe that both surprises with a lighter touch and demonstrates the incredible potential for the expanding continuity. Eric Eisenberg, CinemaBlendAnnabelle Comes Home is textured differently than the other films in the Conjuring Universe, yet it fits comfortably right into the legacy. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionAnnabelle Comes Home never loses the streak of genuine humanity that sets the Conjuring movies apart from many of its horror franchise counterparts. William Bibbiani, Bloody DisgustingCheekily reflects the drive-in popcorn thrillers from the period in which the movie is set more than it does the other films in the series. Oliver Jones, ObserverIt s a mix of high points and low points, much like the overall series itself. Rafer Guzman, NewsdayDespite being a perfectly fine addition to the series, Annabelle Comes Home is just not as inventive or creepy or even scary as some of the other Conjuring films. Edward Douglas, The Beat(Photo by New Line Cinema)How does it compare to the other Annabelle movies?Easily the best film in the Annabelle franchise. Alyse Wax, ComingSoon.netAnnabelle Comes Home cements the Annabelle trilogy as a rare series that gets better with every installment. Eric Eisenberg, CinemaBlendPure joy… better than ever. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionMaybe the most hyper and generic. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyIf Annabelle Comes Home should be the last Annabelle-centric film in the series, it feels like a perfect final chapter. Juliet Bennett Rylah, IGN MoviesIs there too much to this installment?Name your fear trigger, and it’s probably there, somewhere, in Annabelle Comes Home… it’s really the horror equivalent of speed dating. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyIt felt a lot like Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed.. Whatever you’re creeped out by, Annabelle Comes Home has got you covered. Patrick Cavanaugh, The Wolfman ComethIf the Conjuring franchise has run low on original methods of making ghosts jump-out-of-your-seat scary, then Dauberman has found a workaround in diversity. Andy Crump, Paste MagazineStarts to feel like a stack of random ideas. Rafer Guzman, Newsday(Photo by New Line Cinema)Does it just feel like it’s made to introduce more spin-offs?Annabelle Comes Home suffers, I think, from a mercantile quality, the sense you’re watching multiple elevator pitches crammed into feature shape. Darren Franich, Entertainment WeeklyIt kind of feels like we are getting a preview of what the next handful of films in the Conjuring Universe will be. Alyse Wax, ComingSoon.netThere are more than a couple of evil entities featured that could eventually generate their own special branch of the Conjuring Universe. Eric Eisenberg, CinemaBlend

“We wanted to push the fidelity of everything all the way through,” added supervising director Brad Rau, who also serves as an executive producer with Corbett. Though a new show, keeping Baker as the voice of the clones and keeping the overall style of Clone Wars was a very conscious decision on a part of the creative staff to maintain the continuity and visually inform the viewer how swiftly after Clones Wars this series takes place. Although, he noted, “we have clonetroopers in our show, and they re very similar model to The Clone Wars, but they re a little bit different.”One difference viewers may notice in short order: the color-coding and personalized augmentation of trooper gear quickly disappears in favor of the uniform stormtrooper monochrome — a swift change as the clone army of the Republic becomes an Imperial military force.Rau noted that “just seeing the clonetroopers as the forces of our evil army and how their gear, their vehicles, and their equipment has changed to be a little bit less colorful, less individual” changes the relationship to established Star Wars imagery in a way viewers may not immediately recognize consciously, but underscores one of the show’s themes about the transition to Empire.“It s interesting when you take an AT-TE tank, one that we re used to seeing as a good-guy tank, and just strip it off color and paint it this boring gray, and then we re playing very evil music as it comes marching down the street. And you think, ‘There s no doubt, that s a bad-guy tank,’” Rau explained.(Photo by Lucasfilm)Another sign of the changing attitude with the arrival of the Empire: once the Bad Batch come home to Kamino after the Clone Wars end, they see Admiral Wilhulff Tarkin, not yet the Grand Moff of the Death Star, inspecting the troops and doubting the loyalty of the Bad Batch. The classic Star Wars baddie — played by Peter Cushing in the original film and voiced by Stephen Stanton in his animated appearances — is something of a “big fish” for The Bad Batch, according to Corbett.“While he s there to address certain things, I suspect that he ll be pulled someplace to handle other important matters,” she added.And once he is called away to those matters (and his destiny aboard the Death Star), a surprising person will take his place in the hunt for the Bad Batch once they make their escape from the Imperial ranks.Along the way, the Bad Batch also meet a young female clone named Omega (Michelle Ang), whose existence may lead to a new mystery down the road. The character also continues a particular Star Wars animated tradition of introducing kid characters; Clone Wars did the same with Ahsoka and Star Wars Rebels followed suit with Ezra Bridger — to say nothing of Anakin Skywalker s introduction in Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. To Rau, having a child in the midst of the action is key.“These are essentially shows for kids,” he explained. “As big kids ourselves that still love Star Wars from when we saw it as kids, we never want it to get too dark; although, there are dark things that happen.”(Photo by Lucasfilm)The character also changes the dynamic within the squad itself as it is presented with a new set of challenges the clone creators on Kamino never dreamed they would encounter.“The things that they teach each other are really, really interesting and help keep [the Bad Batch] on their toes,” Rau said. “They re not always just hitting the target now [and have to think], ‘Oh, wait a minute. When it s not a military objective, how do we deal with raising this child? We don t even know how to deal with the galaxy ourselves!’”Baker added, “It s a really wonderful thing to see how quickly some of the Bad Batch warm up to Omega, and it really adds an interesting layer to these kind of gonzo, improvisational, special ops soldiers.” To Baker, who has the strange task of keeping all these characters in his mind simultaneously, the addition of Omega adds “the story of what s playing out, which it s not just a matter of war and power, but it is [also] human.”And playing those humans, er, clones, leads to a unique method of recording for Baker. He prefers to run through the script in order and switch between the Bad Batch characters (and any other clones who might be in the scene) live and on the fly.“Once the specificity of the characters is nailed down, as it is by this point, it s actually pretty easy for me to jump from one to the other,” he explained. Although he admitted Wrecker, the demolitions expert with a propensity for yelling, does present some difficulty. “When Wrecker gets excited or starts yelling, that brings a physical cost to the voice that I sometimes have to manage a little bit. But other than that, it s amazingly easy to do.”Baker is able to record two or three takes of an entire scene before a pause for notes from Corbett or Rau or for a moment to record specific lines to “rearrange the words or the inflection or the meaning of sentences, or add extra efforts, or modify the presence of voice to match what the blocking establishes.”(Photo by Lucasfilm)And though the series is a showcase of Baker’s talents, it also retains the imprimatur of Clones Wars and Rebels supervising director Dave Filoni, who serves as the show’s creator even as he continues to chart aspects of Star Wars’ live action television efforts.“The stuff he tells us is fantastic and amazing,” Rau said. As anyone who has heard him talk can attest, he has a rare gift for explaining Star Wars ideas and concepts.“It’s a master class in writing Star Wars,” added Corbett, who also called Filoni s involvement “crucial” in the development of The Bad Batch as a series.The Filoni stamp means the show is also free to move between lighthearted stories and darker tales just like its predecessors, but with one interesting difference: “It s a combination [of tones] because it is a dark time, but the fun adventures they get to go on and the places that they visit are different because there s no war happening,” Corbett said.Indeed, The Bad Batch is unique in that it occurs during a time of galactic peace. Sure, that peace may be an illusion and comes with some brutal hidden fees, but the Clone Wars are over, the Civil War is a decade or so from truly beginning, and the conflicts of the Mandalorian and Sequel Trilogy eras are undreamed of at this point in Star Wars history.(Photo by Lucasfilm)“At least that s a positive,” she continued. “But there are other things that they re encountering in the galaxy that are equally as challenging for them.”Hopefully, those challenges will thrill viewers and keep The Bad Batch on Disney+ until its eventual conclusion, which both Corbett and Rau alluded they have a plan for, but that discussion is for another time — Clone Force 99 and Omega’s journey is just beginning.Star Wars: The Bad Batch debuts on Tuesday, May 4 with a special 70-minute premiere, followed by new episodes every Friday starting on May 7 on Disney+.

Initially, Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were hired for the project, but in October 2019 it was announced that franchise vet Ted Elliott and Chernobyl writer Craig Mazin were taking over writing duties. No word on cast and director or on whether Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) will be a part of the new story.New Pirates of the Caribbean MovieDirector: TBDStarring: Margot RobbieThe above Pirates film should not be confused with the one set to star Margot Robbie. This film, which The Hollywood Reporter says will be penned by Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson, will reportedly be female-fronted and be its own story that will introduce new characters beyond those already part of Jack Sparrow s orbit.29 DatesDirector: Richard WongStarring: TBDThis young adult rom-com, which is based on the Melissa de la Cruz novel, will appear on Disney+.

And while Neel Sethi, who starred as Mowgli in the 2016 film, has said that he s down to return, Marks stressed that the character has aged along with the young actor. Jon and I saw The Jungle Book story as a coming-of-age story and the second movie continues in that direction, Marks says. Really, if it’s done right, it should break some hearts with where it goes.” He added that the sequel will pull in more animal characters from author Rudyard Kipling s book because (duh) there’s such a wealth of characters in that world.” © Walt Disney PicturesLilo StitchDirector: Jon M.

What would you compare the movie to?“It’s like a southern-fried Richard Curtis movie. It’s Gothic, Actually.” Tom Beasley, Flickering Myth“Kind of Mars Attacks! as done by Cormac McCarthy” Ryan Lattanzio, IndieWire“Like a weird religious lovechild of 2012 s The Place Beyond The Pines and 2013 s Prisoners.” Callum Crumlish, Daily ExpressHow is author Donald Ray Pollock as a narrator?“Pollock brings a pleasing, smoky rasp of weary authority. He knows these venal, murderous, craven characters pretty well.” Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune“While an omniscient narrator does feature in the source material, here it feels heavy-handed and distracting, and ends up giving the final film an unintended comic element that isn’t quite in keeping with the deathly dark happenings on screen.” Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies“The result feels less like a worthy tribute to Pollock’s sanguinary prose than an odd, slightly irksome blend of movie and audio book.” Dan Jolin, Empire Magazine(Photo by Glen Wilson/Netflix)What about the killer on-screen ensemble cast?“It’s worth seeing for an intriguingly cast ensemble, authenticating the milieu as much as possible.” Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune“Though there are no individual standouts in the cast, they all turn in intensely committed work that tethers us to their characters’ snowballing predicaments.” Courtney Howard, Fresh Fiction“A film that often feels like a sort of young actors’ Olympics; a baroque showcase for Gen-Z refugees of the industry’s biggest franchises to showcase their indie bona fides.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly“Every actor blends into the woodsy atmosphere with a sense of unease that permeates the air. No stars here, all character actors in service of the film’s unsettling calling.” Hope Madden, Columbus Underground“While the acting is all very good, there are moments when the cast members look bewildered, as if asking themselves how the heck their agents landed them in this gig.” Deirdre Molumby, entertainment.ieHow is Tom Holland? “The best thing to come out of the movie is seeing Tom Holland in a new light.” Deirdre Molumby, entertainment.ie“It’s a very different role for Holland to his energetic, peppy Peter Parker, but he brings a discomfort and a sadness to the character that fits him like a glove.” Tom Beasley, Flickering Myth“It s maybe most gratifying to see Holland so far from Peter Parker mode; his performance is delicately underplayed.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly“It is also Holland who is the most compelling to watch…because of the subdued intensity he lends to the character. He goes from placid and contained to explosively violent in what seems like seconds.” Gabriella Geisinger“Holland is perfectly withdrawn and quiet for so much of the film that when he is driven to action, it’s shocking and unexpected. He’s a combination of angst, guilt and barely contained rage.” Steve Prokopy, Third Coast Review “Arvin is made even more complex by Holland s guile and intrinsic internalization. He is heartbreaking, show-stopping, and entirely fantastic. His best performance yet. Callum Crumlish, Daily Express“Holland, sadly, doesn’t impress…[he] just isn’t right for this role. He seems too fresh, too clean to play such a haunted, violent character.” Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm (Photo by Glen Wilson/Netflix)And what about Robert Pattinson?“Pattinson’s turn as pedophile preacher Preston Teagardin is the obvious highlight.” Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies“Pattinson delivers another striking, film-stealing supporting turn with a hear-it-to-believe-it high-pitched Southern twang.” Matt Maytum, Total Film“For Pattinson, playing a domineering Bible Belt sleaze is a cred move (a sign that he doesn’t have to be liked), and he does a good job of it.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety“Only Pattinson evinces an understanding that irony may be the one workable option after earnest excellence has been ruled out…of all the stupendously bad accent work on display here, only his is as funny as it should be.” Charles Bramesco, The Playlist“Pattinson is clearly having a blast, giving one of the weirdest damn performances of his career…I thought it fit the often surreal tone of the film perfectly. Or maybe I just like watching Pattinson ham it up.” Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm“Then there s Robert Pattinson, whose genteel southern accent is more miss than hit, but whose skeeviness is palpable through the screen.” Gabriella Geisinger“I don’t really know what he’s doing here, besides taking a little too long with every line reading.” Michael Phillips, Chicago TribuneAny other standout performances?“Riley Keough, too, is a standout, adding layers and depth to a character who could easily have been a one-note sexpot caricature.” Tom Beasley, Flickering Myth“The film’s most stirring turns come from two young and gifted actresses [Mia Wasikowska and Eliza Scanlen] handed barely more than 10 minutes of screen time apiece.” Ryan Lattanzio, IndieWire(Photo by Glen Wilson/Netflix)Are there any other positive elements?“Campos and cinematographer Lol Crawley do a superb job of creating an ominous atmosphere, as if despair and tragedy are lurking around every small-town street corner, down every stretch of country road.” Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times“Credit should be given for a predictably excellent period soundtrack chosen by music supervisors Randall Poster and Meghan Currier.” John DeFore, Hollywood ReporterIs it too much movie?“If you stick with the lax pace, the slow-burn reveals are worth the wait.” Gabriella Geisinger“You can t say it doesn t keep you on your toes…But it s a long movie, clocking in at 140 minutes, and there are several points at which it drags.” Deirdre Molumby, entertainment.ie“There are times when the movie threatens to lose focus, but for the most part, this train keeps chugging on down the rickety tracks to its blood-soaked conclusion.” Tom Beasley, Flickering Myth“[Campos’] greatest feat may be that he was able to wrangle a story as ripe and unwieldy as Devil at all…and somehow still managing to land on the grim side of fascinating.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly“Like so many characters in this glum, shaggy ramble of a film, Campos gets lost in the woods.” Charles Bramesco, The Playlist(Photo by Glen Wilson/Netflix)Is the timing right for The Devil All the Time?“The Devil All the Time feel[s] like a movie tailor-made for the current hellscape we’re all trapped in.” Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm“It’s 2020. We’re already familiar with abject misery.” Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionThe Devil All the Time is available to stream on Netflix from September 16, 2020.
We re now in the heart of the summer movie season, so it shouldn t shock anyone to learn that the movies audiences are most looking forward to include a Pixar film, a superhero blockbuster, and a sci-fi adventure. What might be more surprising is that, in a triumph of counterprogramming, a high-concept fantasy musical and a deadpan zombie comedy also made the list. Read on to find out the five most anticipated movies by Rotten Tomatoes users and our fans on social media in June.1. Toy Story 4 (2019) 97%9,043 Want-to-See Votes#1 pick by our Facebook and Instagram fans, #2 pick by our Twitter fansOpens June 21Toy Story 3 gave us all a satisfying, emotional franchise finale, so it was something of a surprise when we learned the good folks at Pixar were planning to revive the series with a fourth installment. That hasn t dampened the enthusiasm for the series, though, as Toy Story 4 sits comfortably at the top of this month s list of most anticipated movies. Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the gang plus an old friend and some new additions are on hand to continue the story as Andy s younger sister Bonnie makes a new toy at school who s not so thrilled about being a toy. This one topped our Facebook and Instagram polls, and easily amassed the most Want-to-See votes.2. Dark Phoenix (2019) 22%5,982 Want-to-See Votes#1 pick by our Twitter fans, #3 pick by our Facebook fans, #5 pick by our Instagram fansOpens June 7With the recent acquisition of Fox s film and TV branches by Disney, it s probably going to be some time before we see the X-Men back on the big screen, so Dark Phoenix might be the last we see of the series for the foreseeable future (we re thinking of New Mutants as sort of an offshoot of the main series). With that in mind, it s probably appropriate that the existing franchise is going out with a bang, adapting one of the most iconic stories from the comics. Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and the rest of the younger, soft-rebooted mutants return to explore the darker side of Turner s Jean Grey, who becomes unstable after a mysterious encounter in space. This one resonated the most with our Twitter fans, and it amassed the second-highest number of Want-to-See votes.3a. Men in Black: International (2019) 23%3,268 Want-to-See Votes#3 pick by our Instagram and Twitter fans, #5 pick by our Facebook fansOpens June 14Next up, we ve got a tie for third, so we ll start with the revival of the Men in Black franchise. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are nowhere to be found at least, that s what we assume, barring a surprise cameo from them in the movie and this time, the focus shifts to MiB s London branch, where a rookie agent played by Tessa Thompson is partnered up with Chris Hemsworth s veteran Agent H to track down a mole in the organization. Here s hoping the chemistry they displayed in Thor: Ragnarok wasn t a fluke.3b. Yesterday (2019) 63% (Photo by Sony/Columbia Pictures)This fall marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Zombieland, the well-reviewed horror comedy that entertained while instructing how to survive a zombie apocalypse. This fall will also see the long-awaited release of the hit movie’s sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap. That’s right, it’s time to nut up or shut up again and follow our favorite city-named characters as they re-kill some undead and maybe even search for more Twinkies.What’s in store for Columbus and the rest of the gang? What have they been up to this past decade? Will they accidentally murder anymore Hollywood icons? Here’s everything we know about the follow-up so far.What s Taken So Long?(Photo by Sony/Columbia Pictures)Ten years is a long wait for a sequel to a movie as popular as Zombieland, which grossed more than 0 million worldwide back in 2009. Everyone seemed ready to do another one soon afterward, but the usual Hollywood hurdles got in the way, some of them rather positive. The filmmakers and cast have all had a good and busy decade since the release of the original.Jesse Eisenberg became an Oscar nominee. Woody Harrelson, who had previously been nominated for a Best Actor Oscar, earned a couple more nominations for Best Supporting Actor. Emma Stone was not only nominated for two Oscars herself, but actually won one for Best Actress in 2016, and she was just nominated for a third time. Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick hit it big with Deadpool and Deadpool 2. Director Ruben Fleischer did a few more movies, including last year’s box office hit Venom, and a lot of television.(Photo by Official Zombieland Twitter)As it turns out, this was perfect timing for the cast of Zombieland to return for a sequel, if only for the fact that they could promote the project through a popular meme. On January 29, the official Zombieland Twitter account revealed the new title for the sequel in a tweet that also featured a new poster, with Eisenberg, Harrelson, Stone, and Breslin recreating the one-sheet for the original. The image of them all older — and in Breslin’s case, taller — is a perfect entry in the #10YearChallenge trend of comparing how we look now with our 2009 selves.Also, this isn’t the first return to Zombieland. Back in 2013, Amazon Studios debuted a pilot for Zombieland: The TV Series alongside 13 other pilots and asked viewers to help decide which series would be picked up. Unfortunately, fans weren’t into the small-screen version of Zombieland, which was scripted by Reese and Wernick but featured a new cast, and Amazon opted not to produce any more episodes. “You guys successfully hated it out of existence,” Reese tweeted at the time.Everyone Is Excited to Be Back(Photo by Sony/Columbia Pictures)Despite all the success and elevated prestige the cast and creators have experienced in the last decade, everyone is back on board for this crazy ride. Eisenberg, Harrelson, Stone, and Breslin will reprise their respective roles as Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita and Little Rock. And Fleischer is again at the helm, directing another script by Reese and Wernick, who are this time joined by The Expendables writer Dave Callaham.When Sony greenlit the sequel last summer, studio president Sanford Panitch said of the reunion: “No one wanted to see it happen more than Emma, Woody, Jesse, and Abigail. These are some of the most in-demand actors, and I think they are making this movie because they love these characters. We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly amazing.”Fleischer himself also spoke excitedly to Fandango last fall as he was prepping for the sequel. “I m thrilled,” he said. “I’ve been scouting and storyboarding and getting it going, and to get to work with that cast again is just an absolute dream come true. It s been really exciting starting to think about that movie, and to get to work with Emma, Jesse, Woody, and Abigail once again is truly a dream come true. Yeah, we re just at the very early stages, but we have an amazing script, and we re going to start shooting in Georgia in January.” Whatever the full synopsis and cast list entails, they’re up and running as of now filming began for Zombieland: Double Tap on January 21, 2019, in Atlanta, Georgia.New Locations, New Friends, and New Zombies(Photo by Sony/Columbia Pictures)What is the foursome up to this time around? The plot is being kept under wraps, of course, but does it really matter what the story is? All a Zombieland sequel needs to have is more hilarious zombie action and horror — not too complicated. We do know that Zombieland: Double Tap will involve another trek through the United States of Zombieland, however, this time taking the gang from the White House to the former American heartland.The film will also feature some new players in the game of zombie bashing, and yes, they’re also all nicknamed after places special to them. Rising star Zoey Deutch is Madison. Avan Jogia (TV’s Victorious) is a bad boy musician named Berkeley. And Rosario Dawson is Nevada. Hopefully we learn why her moniker is an entire state rather than a city.According to sparse details spreading about the premise of the sequel, Berkeley will be a love interest for Breslin’s Little Rock, who has separated from the rest of her group, and Nevada is a zombie hunter who connects with Eisenberg’s Columbus after some drama between him and Stone s Wichita further splits up the original cast.(Photo by Sony/Columbia Pictures)Meanwhile, as the four main characters have managed to stay alive for a decade by hunkering down in the presidential home, the hordes outside have also been surviving. According to reports of the plot, the gang will be facing “new kinds of zombies,” including smarter and stealthier varieties. I mean, it s been 10 years, so who knows what the world will look like at this point? Fleischer hinted to Fandango last fall.While it’s unconfirmed if Bill Murray will also return for the sequel as “himself,” rumor has it that his old Ghostbusters co-star and fellow Saturday Night Live alum Dan Aykroyd will make a cameo this time around as “Dan Aykroyd.” Would that mean we could look forward to Ernie Hudson or Sigourney Weaver in Zombieland 3?It ll Be Worth the Wait(Photo by Sony/Columbia Pictures)Ten years is a long time to wait for a sequel, and anticipation has just been building and building. Will it meet our expectations? Certainly there’s no pleasing everyone, but the decade delay has hopefully been for the best. Fleischer thinks so, as he told LRM last month: I think collectively we all felt very strongly that the only circumstance we’d be willing to make the movie is if it’s as good or better than the original. And none of us were willing to compromise on the quality of the movie. We worked on the script real hard to make sure that it was up to par with the original. And so, that was just a stipulation that we were all completely on the same page about. I’m proud to say I think our script is really great, in that the movie will be as good as the original if not better, and that’s why we’re all back. Zombieland: Double Tap is currently scheduled to hit theaters on October 11, 2019.

The project would be the first DC Films superhero movie starring a Latino character.Scarface remake writer Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer wrote the screenplay for the movie and Charm City Kings director Angel Manuel Soto will direct the movie about Reyes/Blue Beetle, a Mexican-American teenager who found the Blue Beetle scarab on the way home from school, per the DC.fandom.com Wiki.

The series revolves around a group of four Indigenous teens in rural Oklahoma who commit crimes in pursuit of raising enough cash to move to California, which they believe to be some sort of utopia.The show is sincere and funny, with indigenous people in the cast, in the writers room, and directing and producing. It was conceived by longtime friends Waititi and Harjo, an Oklahoma native, one night in Waititi’s kitchen, during a deep conversation aided by lots of tea … “hard tea,” Waititi said. “Tequila-flavored tea,” Harjo added.The friends also were committed to a different tone for the show, one that wouldn’t rely on old, and even more recent, cliches about depressing life on Native American reservations.“We don t want to depress people,” Waititi said during the TCA discussion. “There s so much humor in our communities. There s so many jokers, and it s not … I always say that I thought some of my early films would get negative feedback about them because they were, like, ‘Well, there s not enough culture specificity, and it sort of paints a depressing picture of …’ or, like, ‘You are also making fun.’ They didn t quite know how to take it.“And I was, like, ‘I get what s happening’ … All they want is to see us, like, riding whales, talking to trees, you know, playing flutes on mountaintops and talking to ghosts and learning something from our grandmother. And that s it. That s all that they expect. And to twist those expectations is a powerful thing.”Reservation Dogs premieres on FX August 9.Also during TCA, Hulu announced premiere dates and released trailers for some of its top fall programming.Limited series Dopesick examines how Purdue Pharma triggered the worst drug epidemic in U.S. history.
