Summer is approaching, and cinematically speaking, there are plenty of places to go during these hotter months, but nothing seems like a better destination than In the Heights. Once you see the nearly unanimous rave reviews of the upcoming musical — directed by Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) based on the Broadway smash by Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) — you’ll want to book this virtual trip to the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City.Here’s what critics are saying about In the Heights:Is this THE movie to see this summer?In the Heights is a knockout… This one deserves to be the film of the summer. Manuel Betancourt, That ShelfIn The Heights’ irrepressible energy is the perfect note on which to kick off this summer’s blockbuster season. Danette Chavez, AV ClubEvery summer should have a movie like this one. Joshua Rivera, Polygon[It’s] more than just a movie. It’s more than just a musical. It’s an event. Anna Menta, DeciderIn the Heights isn’t just a movie, it’s a movement. Matt Rodriguez, ShakefireCould it even be the movie of the year?There may not be a bigger cardiac rush this year than In the Heights. Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment WeeklyOne of the best films of the year, In the Heights is a special experience. Adriana Gomez-Weston, We Live EntertainmentOne of the best films of the year that is perfect in almost every way. Matt Rodriguez, ShakefireIt’s one of the liveliest and most moving films you’re likely to see this year. Siddhand Adlakha, IGN Movies(Photo by Macall Polay/©Warner Bros.)Will fans of the original Broadway production be happy with it?Bursting with life, love and melody, it amplifies the mega-wattage of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway show, transforming it into a jubilant cinematic experience. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionChu perfectly captures the energy of — and builds upon — Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical. Anna Menta, DeciderChu’s vision expands and enriches the show’s rendering of Washington Heights into a moving spectacle, elevating mundane mornings or trips to the pool into something mesmerizing and exhilarating. Monica Castillo, The WrapIt’s a musical adaptation that feels grand and intimate in equal measure; there’s plenty of pizzazz to go around but Chu knows just when to zero in on small details to make this effervescent musical sing. Manuel Betancourt, That Shelf[It’s] a triumphant adaptation… In its joyous excess, In the Heights makes a case for adapting Broadway musicals into Hollywood cinema. Joshua Rivera, PolygonWhat about fans of movie musicals in general?In the Heights is proof that the movie musical isn’t dead — it simply needed a little flavor. Juan Barquin, The Film StageEven as it calls back great movie musicals both old and new, it also feels like a great leap forward for the genre. Manuel Betancourt, That ShelfThis is the very best of what a movie musical can be. Anna Menta, DeciderIt’s exceptional and rapturous, as all great musicals should aspire to be. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionIt does what a great musical should do. It makes you feel alive. Siddhand Adlakha, IGN MoviesIt’s the best Hollywood musical in years. Jacob Oller, Paste Magazine(Photo by ©Warner Bros.)How are the musical numbers?Each one feels impossibly more iconic than the one that came before it. Anna Menta, DeciderAlmost all the songs are bangers that keep emotions high — you’ll weep, you’ll cheer, you’ll hum the songs to yourself on the way out of the theater. Jacob Oller, Paste MagazineAlthough not perfect in execution, the musical numbers of this adaptation take characterization to new heights as they each respond to the popular music of the character’s country of origin. Orlando Maldonado, The Playlist[Chu’]s end goal seems to be doing the mostest for each musical number, which doesn’t necessarily correspond to doing the bestest. Martin Tsai, Critic s NotebookHow is Jon M. Chu s direction?In the Heights is the movie he was destined to make, and going forward, I hope to see Chu create more musicals for the ages. Alan Cerny, Vital ThrillsOne exciting aspect of the whole experience is Chu s vision on what a movie musical can be… [He] inherently understands that musicals are magical, no matter how small and realistic the plot. Erin Strecker, MashableChu hits a lot more often than he misses, and always when it counts most. David Ehrlich, IndieWireMr. Chu’s abrupt transitions between naturalistic street scenes and the soundstage are characteristic of an inconsistent and incoherent style. Martin Tsai, Critic s NotebookWhile the spontaneity of the dance numbers ultimately works in Chu’s favor, the frequent close-ups do not, and it makes me wish he showed the potential for splashy musicals that he did in his Step Up movies. Hoai-Tran Bui, SlashfilmAt times, I found myself a little frustrated with Chu’s directing choices… I wanted to yell HOLD STILL! so I could see amazing performers — and they are all truly fantastic — do their thing. Alissa Wilkinson, Vox(Photo by ©Warner Bros.)Are there any standout performances?The cast is uniformly excellent, with special notice to Anthony Ramos whose charisma leaps off the screen. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsOne of the most charismatic and radiantly likable performances you’ll ever see on a screen of any kind, Anthony Ramos plays Usnavi as a naturalized storyteller with a twinkle in his eye. David Ehrlich, IndieWireThe ensemble assembled is out-of-this-world stellar. Ramos and Hawkins turn in top shelf performances. Grace gives a career-defining turn… Merediz is a graceful powerhouse. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionIt’s hard to pick a favorite performance, but with soul-stirring, son-infused Paciencia Y Fe, Merediz reminds us why she’s Latinx acting royalty. Danette Chavez, AV ClubWhile the entire ensemble cast shines, the film is Merediz’s, and she’ll likely be in conversation during the coming award season. Adriana Gomez-Weston, We Live EntertainmentDoes it have a message?In the Heights contains a message of hope that’s well-needed right now. Adriana Gomez-Weston, We Live EntertainmentIn The Heights’ timely story has a topical message that feels right at home in a musical setting… that’s reinvigorated by the way that Huedes adapts her own book into the realities of today. Mike Reyes, CinemaBlend[It’s] a bit heavy-handed at times with its messaging. Juan Barquin, The Film Stage(Photo by ©Warner Bros.)How important is the film s Latinx representation?What I love most about In the Heights is how Latino culture is represented front and center and is not just some afterthought saved for a scene or two. Matt Rodriguez, ShakefireWhat makes the adaptation of In the Heights so remarkable is that it is a major Hollywood musical that allows its Latino characters to live normal lives, outside of gang or narco violence and outside of stereotypes. Monica Castillo, The WrapIn the Heights pulls off the impossible as it accurately represents the Dominican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, and many other Latin diasporas in the United States. Orlando Maldonado, The PlaylistWhat’s most special about In the Heights is that it shines a light on an often overlooked community on film. Adriana Gomez-Weston, We Live EntertainmentThe film ultimately comes off as a corporate vision of celebrating diversity. Martin Tsai, Critic s NotebookBut is it also a movie for everyone?Not everyone is going to feel represented when they watch In the Heights. That’s an impossible task for any movie. Yet [it] can represent many things for many different viewers. Monica Castillo, The Wrap[It’s] a big Hollywood musical that’s not just for Latinx people, but for fans of Broadway, Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s cult of personality, and musical theater in general. They’re going to flock to this film like it’s a hot new brunch spot in Crown Heights. Joshua Rivera, PolygonAre there any problems with the movie?Not all of the updates are seamless; some of the meaningful tension from the original is sacrificed for an unambiguously happy ending. Danette Chavez, AV ClubNarrative and pacing issues… including the very real defanging of the source material’s more complex relationships which create a kind of generic happy-happy joy-joy feeling. Scott Mendelson, ForbesHawkins isn’t charismatic enough to elevate a paper-thin character when placed against a star like Grace. Juan Barquin, The Film StageNot all character arcs are as strong as others, specifically when it comes to Vanessa’s. Her internal and external stakes aren’t brought together nearly as cohesively as her love interest’s. Courtney Howard, Fresh Fiction(Photo by ©Warner Bros.)Should we see it on the big screen if we can?Dreams like this, whether they be large or small, need a big screen to be truly seen; and In The Heights is absolutely worthy of being made into a big time moviegoing experience. Mike Reyes, CinemaBlendSeeing this massive, guileless, heartfelt piece of Hollywood entertainment on the big screen is like coming home after a long year in exile only to find that it’s still there, and maybe even better than you remembered. David Ehrlich, IndieWireSee it with a crowd that will applaud every song and show-stopping dance number. Mike Ryan, Uproxx[It] couldn’t come at a better time and absolutely must be seen in a theater… The experience is absolutely euphoric, and should be seen surrounded by as many friends and family as one can gather. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsIn the Heights is a stunning, triumphant return to the cinema that reminds us again and again and again why we love seeing movies on the big screen, together. Jacob Oller, Paste MagazineWill we want to see it again and again?When the credits rolled on Jon M. Chu’s joyous, colorful, pulse-pounding, and hopeful In the Heights, all I could think of was how badly I wanted them to restart the film. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsIn the Heights was the last film I caught inside of a movie theater in 2020. I have not stepped foot in one since that advance press screening last spring… There is no film I am more eager to watch amidst an audience than this ode to the beauty of crowds, to the value of solidarity, and to the pleasures of community.

Raya had made .17 million in its first 12 days and has more than doubled that total since. The Marksman with Liam Neeson had only grossed .35 million in 12 days and has managed to scrounge out over million. GvK will still have another weekend at No. 1 and will fall back with Mortal Kombat the week after, at which time it should settle into second place for another three weeks until Spiral comes out, and there is no reason to believe it will not still be in the top five come Memorial Day weekend. That’s a long road ahead, but it is still very possible that 0 million could be there at the end of it.The Top 10 and Beyond: Voyagers Lands with a Thud(Photo by Lionsgate)The only big theatrical contender this week was Lionsgate’s Lord of the Flies in space, aka Voyagers, which was not liked by critics (with a 27% Tomatometer score) or cared about by audiences this weekend grossing a paltry .3 million. Sure, it is only the 12th film of 2021 to open with more than a million, but it could not even crack the top 10 on that small list. Even the long-delayed Chaos Walking managed to open to .77 million, one of only seven movies this year so far to gross over million.Beyond that, it was a week of small drops. Nobody retained its second-place spot falling just 12 percent to .65 million. It has now crossed the million line. Last week’s No. 2, The Unholy, fell to third with only a 23 percent drop. It’s total now stands at .7 million. Tom Jerry dropped only 17 percent and has run its total to over million. Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon actually increased business this week, going up 2 percent and grossing .1 million for a total of million.These Dates In Box Office History: Vin Diesel’s The Fast and the Furious Franchise Revved Up Audiences for the Summer Blockbuster SeasonApril 9: On this day in 2017, the Jennifer Lawrence/Chris Pratt sci-fi film, Passengers, grossed ,876. That was enough to push it over the 0 million mark on its 110th day of release. (What an anniversary for Voyagers to be opening on with its unwanted advances in space premise.)April 10: This is a big date for films crossing the 0 million line. In 1999, Dreamworks’ animated The Prince of Egypt made 1,406 to get there on day 114 of its release. Steven Spielberg got their faster in the director’s chair in 2018 when Ready Player One grossed .34 million to reach the mark in just 13 days. Though eight years earlier in 2010, the remake of Clash of the Titans took in .04 million to reach the milestone in just nine days. Much faster than Vin Diesel’s family film, The Pacifier, did in 2005 when it grossed 9,633 on its 38th day. Diesel got there a lot quicker – and doubled it – 10 years later when Furious 7 made .86 million in its eighth day to cross the 0 million line.April 11: Turns out these are big dates for one Vin Diesel as Fast and Furious is his third film on the list this week. His return to the franchise made .43 million in its ninth day to cross 0 million. Three years later on this date, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax grossed 5,795 to pass 0 million on its 41st day of release. That is a milestone that Fast and Furious would not reach.On the Vine: Fresh Festival Films Take a Shot at Box Office Glory

3.25.9 1月喜迎(Photo by © Lucasfilm Ltd, Twentieth Century Fox)The arrival of Star Wars: The Bad Batch on May 4 is another step in Star Wars’s growing presence on Disney+. With its offerings on the streamer previously confined to The Mandalorian and the extant feature films and animated series, Lucasfilm stunned fans and investors last December with an ambitious plan to produce as many as 10 television series for Disney+ in the next decade. In addition to its Disney+ roster, the company also intends to make at least three features by 2027.So yes, there is a ton of new Star Wars movies and new Star Wars series flying our way.Of course, fans of Star Wars media already knew the fictional galaxy could fuel hundreds of film and shows. They also hope the expansion of Star Wars content means there will be room for Jedi Knight protagonist Kyle Katarn to re-enter the canon.And canonicity is a big deal for Star Wars. When Disney first bought Lucasfilm, they declared all previous Star Wars comics, novels, games, and cartoons (except for the long-running Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as non-canon legends of the Star Wars galaxy. The move was made to offer maximum freedom to the filmmakers involved in the Sequel Trilogy (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and Rise of Skywalker), but it didn t take long for Legends characters and ideas to seep back into programs like Star Wars Rebels and The Mandalorian. And, as you will see in this guide to Star Wars’s streaming and theatrical future below, those senses of canon and continuity are as important to the galaxy far, far away as the Force itself.Here we ve gathered everything we know about every Star Wars movie and series coming to streaming and theaters in the next few years, and broken down how they fit into the emerging Star Wars galaxy. Tell us which new Star Wars projects you re most excited about in the comments.Disney+ SeriesThe Book Of Boba Fett(Photo by © Lucasfilm Ltd.)Premiere Date: December 2021What We Know: Announced in the closing moments of The Mandalorian’s second season last winter, the program will follow Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) as he reclaims his place in the galactic underworld. Whether or not the the series begins from the scene of him taking over Jabba the Hutt’s old palace, which we saw in The Mandalorian, remains to be seen. Along for the ride is Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), who owes a debt to Fett and whose own story seems to be spread across the various Star Wars shows – she is also scheduled to make an appearance on The Bad Batch (with Wen providing her voice). Behind the camera, El Mariachi director Robert Rodriguez – who directed Fett s full return to Star Wars in a second-season Mandalorian episode – joins executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni as an Executive Producer and creative force in the story. According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, the series will debut in December, although it is possible the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may delay that plan. That said, filming began in November 2020 and seems to have occurred without incident.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As with The Mandalorian, the series will continue to develop the post-Empire galaxy in the era between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. But by focusing its gaze on the criminals, it gets to tell a wholly new story. Although, it is easy to imagine Fett’s old brigade of bounty hunters might stop by to wish him well on his new endeavor.Star Wars Visions(Photo by Lucasfilm Ltd.)Premiere Date: 2021What We Know: The 10-episode anthology series will feature leading Japanese anime studios as they bring a new spin to Star Wars locations and characters.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As this is an anthology concerned with the distinctive styles of the participating animation studios, we’re not sure how it fits or even if it will be canon. With Disney+ uploading non-canon content like the Ewoks TV movies and Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2-D Clone Wars series in recent days, there is room for Visions to ruminate on the ideas of Star Wars without being bound to the state of the galaxy or Lucasfilm s overall plans for ongoing stories. Although, with one of the episodes inspiring author Emma Mieko Candon s upcoming novel, Star Wars Visions: Ronin, the program may yet prove to be a vital part of Star Wars.The Mandalorian: Season 3(Photo by © 2020 Lucasfilm Ltd. All Rights Reserved.)Premiere Date: Early 2022What We Know: Reportedly beginning production in early April, the program will begin a new story as Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) deals with the repercussions of becoming the heir apparent to the throne of Mandalore. Presumably, Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) will not be too thrilled about that development, but will it lead to them fighting for the Darksaber or hashing out some sort of accord? Also, will Djarin finally accept that he must help liberate the planet from the Imperial Remnant? Meanwhile, Grogu begins his training with Luke Skywalker. Although, it is easy to imagine circumstances will lead the Child back to Djarin.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As the flagship show, The Mandalorian still sets the pace in the post-ROTJ galaxy. With Imperial Remnants still working towards some sort of plan to push back the New Republic – and the New Republic trying to create order in the generally lawless Outer Rim – the stage will eventually be set for the weakened Republic glimpsed in the Sequel Trilogy.Andor(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)Premiere Date: 2022What We Know: One of two programs announced for Disney+ before the platform launched – the other being The Mandalorian – Andor has been long in the planning. Finally beginning production in November of 2020, the 12-episode series will star Diego Luna as his Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character, Cassian Andor, in a story set five years before the events of the film. Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller are along for the adventure, as is Genevieve O Reilly as Mon Montha, a key figure in the Rebel Alliance that the actor has played in Star Wars media since a scene cut from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. And although Alan Tudyk was originally meant to reprise his role as K-2SO, the actor revealed in January of 2021 that the droid will not appear in the first season.The series was originally developed by Jared Bush, but Rogue One writer Tony Gilroy is credited as creator. He also serves as showrunner, replacing The Americans’ Stephen Schiff, although his plan to direct the first three episodes was curtailed by the pandemic. Toby Haynes picked up the director chores alongside Ben Caron and Susanna White. Joining Gilroy in the writers’ room is his brother, Dan Gilroy, and House of Cards’ Beau Willimon. Schiff is also still onboard as an episode writer.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Thanks to its place in the timeline – five or so years before the original Star Wars – the program has the opportunity to expose hidden depths within the Rebel Alliance which could set up conflicts in the post-ROTJ era. Also, it could be a chance to establish Star Wars Rebels characters in live action while telling its own story of intrigue and suspense.Obi-Wan Kenobi(Photo by Industrial Light Magic/Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation/Courtesy Everett Collection)Premiere Date: 2022What We Know: Growing out of an abandoned Star Wars Story film, the series sees Ewan McGregor return as Obi-Wan Kenobi, the loyal Jedi sent into exile on Tatooine following the conclusion of the Clone Wars and the Old Republic’s descent into Empire. The cast also includes Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O Shea Jackson Jr., Moses Ingram, Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, and Maya Erskine. Edgerton and Piesse reprise their Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clone roles as Owen Lars and Beru Whitsun, although they now serve as guardians to a roughly ten-year-old Luke Skywalker. Also set to return: Prequel Trilogy star Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader.The Mandalorian’s Deborah Chow serves as director and executive producer alongside Kennedy, McGregor, and Tracey Seaward. Joby Harold takes over writing duties from Hossein Amini, who left the project sometime in early 2020. Production on the six-episode limited series is reportedly underway right now.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Set 10 years prior to the original Star Wars film and focusing on a time when everyone presumed Obi-Wan was just meditating in the desert and waiting for Luke to grow up, it may offer some further insights into characters seen on The Book of Boba Fett or glimpsed on The Mandalorian’s various trips to Tatooine. But for longtime fans, the chance to see Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru again may be the program’s biggest gift.Ahsoka(Photo by (c) 2020 Lucasfilm Ltd. TM. All Rights Reserved)Premiere Date: TBDWhat We Know: After her debut in The Mandalorian s second season, Rosario Dawson returns as the live-action version of the Star Wars: Clone Wars fan-favorite character. Although no plot details are as yet available, fans assume the series will pick up from Rebels closing moments with Ahsoka continuing her search for the long-missing Ezra Bridger. That said, it is always possible that journey has ended and Ahsoka s only mission is to track down Grand Admiral Thrawn. It is currently unclear how quickly the series will go into production or who will actually run the program. But considering Filoni’s long association with the character, the program may serve as his first live-action production as showrunner.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: In continuing Ahsoka’s story – and possibly resolving Ezra’s – the program serves as both a cap to her animated adventures and the beginning of a new era for the character. As it happens, her voice is heard toward the end of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, suggesting she is one with the Force by Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) time. Answering how she got there may be part of the show’s mission statement, but we’ll be quite happy if it takes another 10 years to reveal how her physical form meets its final end.Rangers of the New Republic(Photo by © Lucasfilm Ltd.)Premiere Date: TBDWhat We Know: A third new series from Favreau and Filoni – the others being The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka will follow a group of New Republic soldiers in the same era as The Mandalorian. While Kennedy offered few details about this show during a Disney Investor Day presentation in December of 2020, she mentioned it will cross over with other stories from The Mandalorian and Ahsoka to culminate in an “event” at some point in the future. An Avengers-style crossover would be a new thing for Star Wars, so it will be interesting to see how this develops.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As the program is the most mysterious, the crossover seems to be the most tantalizing element. Will the liberation of Mandalore be saved for it? Or will a larger skirmish with the Imperial Remnant prove to be its focus? Also, considering the state of the galaxy in the Sequel Trilogy, did the Rangers mission fail? Definitely a question worth exploring.The Acolyte(Photo by © Lucasfilm)Premiere Date: TBDWhat We Know: The long-in-the-works project from Russian Doll creator Leslye Headland and Lucasfilm story executive Rayne Roberts will focus on a character during the final days of the High Republic – a period roughly a century before the Skywalker Saga – who comes to know shadowy secrets and emerging Dark Side powers. The mystery/thriller series will also reportedly feature a martial arts element, so fans of the Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi video game may finally get a chance to be recognized for their loyalty.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: The High Republic is the current focus of Lucasfilm’s publishing initiatives, so the series will presumably import some of its recently introduced novel and comic book characters to the streaming screen. Also, as the era is a fresh period in Star Wars history, it has the room to create new locales and situations free of the Skywalker Saga or even the galaxy as mapped by Favreau and Filoni.Lando(Photo by © Lucasfilm)Premiere Date: TBDWhat We Know: Dear White People’s Justin Simien is developing a limited series devoted to charismatic card player and scoundrel Lando Calrissian. While it is unclear who will play the title role, a teaser video featuring Lando’s unblemished Millennium Falcon shown during the 2020 Investor Day presentation suggests it will go back to the days before he met Han Solo.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: That all depends on when it takes place. A focus on the older Lando (played by Billy Dee Williams) could follow up on his promise to help Jannah (Naomi Ackie) find her people and offer us the first glimpse of the galaxy following the destruction of the New Republic and the First Order. A series primarily concerned with young Lando (played by Donald Glover) would be less concerned with lore and, potentially, revel in the fun of being a scoundrel. And, then, of course, the program could be about both things at once – a storytelling device Star Wars has yet to really employ in its live-action efforts.MoviesStar Wars: Rogue Squadron(Photo by Clay Enos/©Warner Bros./courtesy Everett Collection)Release Date: December 22, 2023What We Know: First revealed at the 2020 Investor Day presentation, Rogue Squadron will be directed by Wonder Woman s Patty Jenkins and focus on a new generation of X-Wing pilots. In a video posted to her Twitter account, Jenkins revealed the story is personal as her father was a fighter pilot who lost his life in service to his country. She also subsequently clarified that the film will honor the Rogue Squadron video games and novels even as it flies off in its own direction.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: That all depends on when the film takes place. For the moment, we re going to presume Star Wars feature films will continue to move forward from the time of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and the new Rogue Squadron forms to aid whatever government replaces the New Republic. That means characters from the Sequel Trilogy like Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) could show up, but don t rule out another big time-jump to set the film apart from the Skywalker Saga entirely.Untitled Taika Waititi Star Wars Film(Photo by Jasin Boland/©Marvel)Release Date: 2025 (Our Guess)What We Know: Although the industry knew about Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi s Star Wars project for some time, Kennedy finally commented on it in December 2020, saying his approach to Star Wars will be fresh, unexpected, and unique. She also pointed to his talent – which is evident in his films – and his sense of humor as two strengths which will set Waititi s project apart from other Star Wars endeavors. Presumably, it will fill the Star Wars feature film slot Disney is currently holding for 2025; considering he is currently working with Disney on Thor: Love and Thunder for a February, 2022 release, the timing should work out.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Like Jenkins s film, it all depends on when it is set. With thousands of years of lore available to explore, Waititi could do just about anything he wants – from a story set on the world where sentient creatures first felt the Force to a film set entirely in Ackmena s (Beatrice Arthur) cantina from The Star Wars Holiday Special. And as Ragnarok proved, he can make just about any Star Wars setting a place of laughs, jeopardy, and thrills.Rian Johnson s Star Wars Trilogy: Episode I(Photo by David James/ © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures/Lucasfilm Ltd. /Courtesy Everett Collection)Release Date: 2027 (Our Guess)What We Know: First announced in 2017, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is expected to spearhead a new trilogy sometime in the next decade – writing and directing the first film himself. And although he reportedly reaffirmed his involvement as recently as this past February, no additional details are known. Currently, the director is expected to fast-track two sequels to his hit film Knives Out after Netflix paid almost half a billion dollars for the chance to stream them. Of course, that may not prevent his Star Wars trilogy from going forward as Lucasfilm seems happy to wait for him and build out different regions of the galaxy in the interim. Whether he ll be done telling Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) mysteries in time to make a film to fill the 2027 release date Disney has mapped out for a Star Wars film is anyone s guess.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Right now, it doesn t. It s just an agreement to make a series of movies, and as seen with Lucasfilm s quick decision to cancel the Star Wars Story anthology of films in wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story s underperformance, that deal could dissolve at any moment. See also: the company s about-face regarding a series of films to be developed by Game of Thrones executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.A Droid Story(Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)Release Date: TBDWhat We Know: As Kennedy described at the 2020 Investor Day presentation, the only Star Wars TV movie currently on the Disney+ roster will be an “epic journey” featuring a new hero guided by Star Wars most famous droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO. Although the Lucasfilm president was light on story details, she did mention the project will be a chance for the company’s animation and live-action special effects groups to stretch their expertise to its limits.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Like Visions, the film may also be freed from canon. At the same time, that new hero whom Artoo and Threepio guide could become part of Patty Jenkins s upcoming Star Wars: Rogue Squadron feature, a subsequent film, or, perhaps, a story set after well after Rey put an end to Sheev Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid).Untitled Kevin Feige Star Wars Film(Photo by Albert L. Ortega/WireImage)Release Date: TBDWhat We Know: Word first broke in 2019 that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was involved in developing a Star Wars film with Kennedy. At the time, Walt Disney Studios Co-Chairman Alan Horn said it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together. Like the first episode of the Johnson trilogy, it could end up becoming the Star Wars feature Disney releases in 2027. Then again, Feige s calendar is much busier than Johnson s and he ll likely be deep into planing Phase 6 or 7 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by the time the film would need to be shooting to meet that release date.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Not even Baskin-Robbins knows how it will fit into the rest of Lucasfilm s plans for Star Wars.Untitled J.D. Dillard Star Wars Project(Photo by Leon Bennett/WireImage)Release Date: TBDWhat We Know: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sleight director J.D. Dillard and Marvel TV writer Matt Owens (Luke Cage) are developing some sort of Star Wars project for Lucasfilm. In the year since the story first broke, though, no additional details have come to light. And even at the time of reporting, it was unclear if the project would be a Disney+ series, TV movie, or feature film. That ambiguity makes it an even more tenuous project than Johnson s trilogy.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Curiously, Dillard made a brief appearance in The Rise of Skywalker as FN-1226, one of the stormtroopers Rey mindtricks during Chewbacca s (Joonas Suotamo) rescue. Whether or not this would play into his project is unknown, but it does remind us that many First Order soldiers, stolen from their parents at a young age and conditioned to serve First Order interests, still deserve to be liberated. Well, the ones who survived the Battle of Exegol, anyway.Which Star Wars projects are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments.On an Apple device?

(Photo by Robert Viglasky/Amazon)Vanity Fair’s Becky Sharp has seen her fair share of film and TV adaptations over the years — Reese Witherspoon in 2004’s film version, Natasha Little in the 1998 BBC version, Eve Matheson in the 1987 BBC version, Susan Hampshire in the 1967 BBC version — but the literary heroine gets her most modern take yet thanks to Olivia Cooke, star of Amazon’s Certified Fresh 2018 miniseries.The show, which hits Prime Video on Dec. 21, is based on the classic William Makepeace Thackeray novel, and while it’s still set in early-19th century Britain, there are plenty of modern touches that make Becky’s story feel less like a stuffy period drama and more like an evergreen story about a resourceful woman clawing her way out of poverty at any cost is applicable to any era.Gwyneth Hughes’ adaptation is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, and features the “Villainy, crime, merriment, lovemaking, jilting, laughing, cheating, fighting, and dancing,” as Cooke’s spirited Becky climbs her way up English society all the way to the court of King George IV.In anticipation of the series’ U.S. release, Rotten Tomatoes spoke with star Cooke about playing a classic literary character, nailing a posh English accent, and what shows she’s been streaming lately.What’s appointment viewing for you?Recently, just cause it s off the top of my head, Sally4Ever, the Julia Davis HBO show. It is so outrageous. It is so, so good. I mean, me and my boyfriend are watching it and we have to watch the past episode two or three times during the week just so we can get ready for the next episode that comes out on Sunday. It is so outrageous. It is so, so good. I mean, me and my boyfriend are watching it and we have to watch the past episode two or three times during the week just so we can get ready for the next episode that comes out on Sunday. Her sense of humor is so off color and so dark and so wacky. You can kind of see the improvising, and I actually love that you can see the actors just barely holding it together because of what they re saying and what s coming out of the other person s mouth is so outrageous. It s delicious. It s so wonderful to watch.What’s on your DVR?I don t have cable! I have Amazon, I have Hulu, I have Netflix, I have HBO.What’s on your streaming queue?I just started watching on Netflix — I know, blasphemy! I m in an Amazon show — it s about all these investors trying to work out if they ought to invest in a new restaurant: Million Pound Menu. One the other day was Cuban-inspired street food that we want you to invest like 0,000 in to house six or seven restaurants around the country. I think it s these usually lovely eccentric people that just want to create a product that serves people and doesn t harm anyone else. It s low stakes, and it s really nice to kind of switch your mind off, too.The Bisexual on Hulu. I ve watched that actually in England. That was Channel Four in England, now it’s just come to Hulu. It shows the part of London that I think is quite cool and aspirational but also realistic and the writing s really good and the acting is wonderful and it’s about the sexual politics around different gendered relationships. It s really interesting.Forever on Amazon. I just finished watching. It was great. I mean, Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen I m always there for.What’s coming soon that you can’t wait for?(Photo by Amazon Prime Video)Fleabag season 2. I m excited for that. I don t know if I m allowed to say what, so I won t, but I just worked with an actor who just filmed it and I was trying to get him to tell me secrets. I’m excited for that to come out next year.And Veep! I ve been going back recently and watching all the Veeps from the beginning to end and I m excited about that. I m especially excited to see what they do with their administration in light of everything that s happening here. It s so funny watching it a few years ago and being like, “This is crazy. This would never happen,” and then some of the storylines that were filmed before this current administration are now so realistic and so real and you re just like, “Oh my God, they are Nostradamus.”Jean Bentley for Rotten Tomatoes: I feel like being in a period historical drama is a right of passage for an English actor. So what was it like doing this, for you?Cooke: It was great. I ve done a historical period piece before but that was only two months and it was a film. But doing this for five months and getting dressed in the morning and being put into your corset and then being sewn into your dress. You kind of start the day with this weird meditation/tradition, which helps you get into
oundation makes it sound like the show might be a bit less literary. According to their press materials, the show chronicles a band of exiles on their monumental journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the fall of the Galactic Empire, which suggests this series will follow the spirit of the novels more than the letter.It s also doubtful, given the scope and the 10-episode order (so far), that Foundation will cover all three books. It may not even cover all of the first one, especially if they incorporate elements of Asimov s prequel novels, 1988 s Prelude to Foundation and 1993 s Forward the Foundation. But with the credentials of the people involved, we re hopeful that Goyer and Apple will be able to pull it off.Who Are the Creatives on Foundation?(Photo by Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images)Goyer serves as the series showrunner. (Original co-writer and co-show runner John Friedman left the production in April of 2019, though it s not known if this was planned or unplanned). And while Goyer is best known as a screenwriter — most notably for Christopher Nolan s Batman movies, the Blade films, and both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — he s no stranger to TV. He was the co-creator, a producer, and a writer for the SyFy channel s Superman prequel Krypton, the co-creator and a writer for the WB s short-lived comic book adaptation Constantine, and is currently helping to develop The Sandman, a show based on author and producer Neil Gaiman s iconic comic book series.Joining Goyer in the show s credits are co-executive producers and writers Leigh Dana Jackson (Helix, 24: Legacy) and Victoria Morrow (Weeds, Rectify), co-producer Adam Banks (Altered Carbon, Luke Cage), and the aforementioned Robyn Asimov, who will serve as an executive producer.As for the writers, while Goyer will pen an as-yet-unknown number of episodes, he, Jackson, and Morrow will be joined by Marcus Gardley, who was the executive story editor for 10 episodes of The Chi, and a writer of four; Sarah Nolen (The Americans); and Saladin Ahmed, who is best known for writing the comic books Ms. Marvel and Miles Morales: Spider-Man. Isaac Asimov will also share writing credit on all 10 episodes, which is a neat trick given that he passed away in 1992.Where things get even more interesting is in the director s chair. Here, Foundation will feature the talents of Alex Graves (Lost in Space, Altered Carbon), Jennifer Phang (The Boys, Resident Alien), and Rupert Sanders (Ghost in the Shell, Snow White and the Huntsman). But the most interesting person who ll be yelling CUT! for Foundation — and twice no less — is Roxann Dawson, who has directed episodes of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, House of Cards, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but is best known to fans of epic sci-fi space operas as B Elanna Torres from Star Trek: Voyager a show she directed twice before doing the same for 10 episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise.Who s in the Cast of Foundation?(Photo by Apple TV+)Like the crew, many of the cast members also have experience with epic space stories. For the role of Hari Seldon, Goyer and company cast two-time Emmy nominee Harris, who s well versed in the ways of space and TV thanks to his role as Anderson Dawes in multiple episodes of The Expanse. Harris recently starred in HBO s Emmy-winning limited series Chernobyl, for which he received his second Emmy nomination; played King George VI in multiple episodes of The Crown; and had roles in the shows The Terror, Carnival Row, Mad Men (his first Emmy nomination), and Fringe.Foundation also stars Lee Pace, who plays Emperor Brother Day, and will undoubtedly draw from his experience playing Ronan the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy. Pace also has experience with epics, and royalty, having played the Elven king Thranduil in The Hobbit movies, as well as TV experience from playing Joe MacMillan in Halt and Catch Fire. He is also Emmy nominated for his role as Ned on ABC fantasy series Pushing Daisies.Some of the casting of Foundation will change things up from the book. While the character of Eto Demerzel is male in the novels, the role in the show will instead be played by a female, Finnish actor Laura Birn. Birn is best known for the 2014 movie A Walk Among the Tombstones; though she s also no stranger to serialized entertainment, having played Elena in all eight episodes of Netflix s The Innocents.Alfred Enoch has been cast in an as-yet-unidentified role. Like many of his costars, Enoch also has experience with epics, having played Dean Thomas in the Harry Potter movies, and experience with TV, as Wes Gibbins in How to Get Away with Murder. So he s probably playing a space wizard who s in law school or something.The cast of Foundation also includes Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk, who is the eldest member of the royal family. Mann previously played Whispers in the Netflix show Sense8, though horror fans know him better as Ug, the interstellar bounty hunter in all four Critters movies. Joining him in the royal family as Brother Dawn is Cassian Bilton, a British actor whose previous credits include a handful of short films, including the BAFTA-nominated Shoal.Bilton is not the only relatively unknown actor in the Foundation cast, though. Gaal Dornick, a mathematician who becomes Seldon s biographer, will be played by Lou Llobell (pictured), who also appears in the upcoming sci-fi movie Voyagers, while the role of Salvor Hardin, who is the first mayor of Terminus City, will be played by Leah Harvey, who was previously seen in the wrestling movie Fighting with My Family.When Does Foundation Premiere?(Photo by Apple TV+)Like every other show in production these days, production on Foundation experienced delays related to COVID-19, coming to a complete halt in March 2020 before resuming in October. The cast and crew then moved to Malta in January of 2021 to film for a month, then to two separate locations the Canary Islands. Currently, the series is scheduled to debut on Apple TV+ on September 24, 2021, which means you still have plenty of time to read the 220-page original novel — or heck, the entire 660-page trilogy — and forget most of the plot twists before the show comes to your viewing screen.
Sophie-Marie Prime for Rotten Tomatoes: How did you become a part of The Dirt? You were originally interested in playing Tommy Lee, and you were steered towards the role of Nikki Sixx…Yeah, I read the script, and Tommy just seemed such a fun part to play because he s just so lovable. And so, I auditioned, and it looked like I was gonna play Tommy Lee. And then eventually they said, Look, we can t find anyone to play Nikki Sixx… Would you mind doing a tape? I remember feeling intimidated by the idea, because he s a very different character, and it s hard to put your finger on who he is… But then I did it, and they said they thought it was great, and they asked if I would play Nikki. I said yes, and it was the best decision I made. I absolutely loved playing him, and I can t imagine anyone else but Colson [Baker] playing Tommy.Were you a fan of Mötley Crüe s music?Not really. I mean, I was aware of their music, because obviously they re such a big part of that time period and culture in that time. I d heard them on the radio, and they have some great tunes. But it wasn t until I started this movie and actually spent time with it and spent time being them playing it that I fell in love with it — and now, I love it.(Photo by Jake Giles Netter/Courtesy of Netflix)How involved were Nikki and the band in the making of the movie? Were they ever on set?I met Nikki before, and then Tommy and Nikki came to New Orleans a couple days before we started shooting and joined our band practice we had. We d been doing it for a month in New Orleans, all the boys together, and they taught us They gave us tips and gave us some advice on the way they played, how they played, and the way they d hold their instrument, and the way they do things, so that was very useful.They were involved a perfect amount. They were a band who were very generous and gave thoughts, they gave advice, but then also trusted us to play our roles and took a step back while we filmed.Do you remember any specific props that came from the band directly?Well, to do with the guitars and the amps, when Iwan [Rheon] sat down and spoke to Mick Mars, all they talked about for two hours was different types of amps and stuff like that. Mick s all about the music I didn t know how Nikki would react to all of the drug paraphernalia. He s so sober now, and he had such a hard time battling his addiction problems, but once we got to set, was like, Show me all the drug paraphernalia. He was kind curious about it, and wanted to see what it was like, and make sure they got it right.Did he want to make sure it was realistic?Make sure it was real, but he s done so much to help other people with opioid problems, and it s something that was important to him, just to be done right and tastefully, and not shy away from the realities.

But are they actually hurt and was it all planned out and part of a larger, character-driven narrative?Or, as Jack Spade, Stephen Amell’s lead in the new Starz drama Heels, puts it at one point: “We know that they know and they know that we know that they know.”In Heels, which premieres August 15, Amell plays one half of a Georgia wrestling dynasty. The older, more upstanding, brother to Alexander Ludwig’s Ace, Jack is married to wife Staci (Alison Luff) and they have a little boy. He has a good day job selling lawn mowers and she sings in the church choir; meanwhile, Ace lives in his childhood bedroom and spends his days and nights partying and bedding women like he’s still the all-star athlete he was in high school.(Photo by Starz)But in the ring? Jack is a “heel,” or the antagonist in the wrestling matches who taunts and provokes the crowd and his opponents. Ace is the ripped, blond Adonis, or “face,” who represents the belief that good conquers evil. Everyone in their small town knows not only the backstory between their characters, but also that of their family. This includes the legacy of their father, another local wrestling giant whose tragic death is explored in the show. References to Bible characters Cain and Abel are obvious and mentioned.“I wanted to explore something where conflicts outside of the ring — real-world, unscripted conflicts — bleed into the scripted conflicts inside of the ring,” creator Michael Waldron told Rotten Tomatoes. “To me, two brothers — one s a good guy in the ring, but maybe not such a good guy outside of it, and the other’s a bad guy in the ring, but perhaps a more decent guy outside of it — just felt like good compelling math for a show.”Waldron, who does have a positive relationship with his own brother, has conquered this territory before. He’s also the creator of the Disney+ series Loki, which focuses on Tom Hiddleston’s less respected sibling of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He tells Rotten Tomatoes that these themes entice him because “the cool thing about family conflict is you don t get to choose your family. But they re the people you re closest to in the world.”“I think people … relate to warring brothers,”Heels showrunner Mike O’Malley added. “The tragedy of Cain and Abel is that it’s God saying to Cain Where is Abel? and Cain saying ‘I m not my brother s keeper.’ This is what this story is about, especially when it has a father who abandoned them and a mother who isn t in support of what they re doing because of [how] this league did damage, emotionally, to their father.”(Photo by Starz)These dynamics are even stronger in the world of wrestling. Ludwig’s Ace gets to have the glory and worship of adoring fans. He also has a valet, or female sidekick, in the form of Kelli Berglund’s Crystal Tyler — an extremely talented wrestler in her own right who doesn’t get any recognition (or a locker room) of her own due to the industry’s inherent sexism. But it’s Amell’s Jack who, like all heels, actually calls the shots. Jack also writes the scripts, which means he has control over what storylines he, his brother and the other wrestlers get to tell.“It does seem like [it takes] a special kind of person to want to be a heel,” Amell said. “There is something somewhat disconcerting about people really viciously, actively, booing you in this sort of vitriolic way.”He says that, back in the day, being a heel “was a real sacrifice that you would have to make” because “you don t make as much money from merchandise because people don t buy as much of your stuff.”But, Amell says, quoting a line from the show, “you only love the good guys as much as you hate the bad.” In fact, one of the most scene-stealing characters in Heels is Chris Bauer’s gaudy and bawdy Wild Bill Hancock, a former wrestling star from the area who made in the big leagues and is now a scout who may or may not be trusted. In other words, he’s a heel both in and out of the ring. And he has an interest in Ludwig’s Ace.“I think that there s this animalistic quality in all of us that are enamored with heels,” Ludwig said. “Because to get to a place where you re comfortable not needing anything, or caring about anything, that s kind of fascinating and exciting. What made me so attracted to the character [of Ace] was simply that he s not in a place where he s secure enough. He s trying to find his own place in the world. And, and, you know, looming over them is this tragedy that is their father s death.”The former Vikings star also acknowledged that this is not the first time he’s been on a show about feuding siblings and birthrights. But “every story has been told since the beginning of time. It s how you tell it. The same way as that every song has been sung. [It s] just how you sing and how you make it,” he said.(Photo by Starz)Both Amell and Ludwig trained to do as much of their own stunts as the show’s executives would allow. Amell even overshot a Coast to Coast (a wrestling move involving a giant leap and a dropkick) and suffered a compression fracture in his vertebras. But, the former Arrow star pointed out, “you can t hide in a wrestling ring … if someone s in a hood and a mask, it s pretty easy to double them.”“It was probably the most painful experience I ve ever been through and it’s certainly the most training we ve ever done,” Ludwig says of the rigorous practices. “In turn, it made us all bond together because we realized just what these men go through and how hard we had to work to make this really look real.”Since they are both Canadian actors playing Southern American characters, they also took dialect instruction. The show is also premiering at a time when both the sport of wrestling is changing and there has been a renewed interest in depicting it on screen, as with 2019 film Fighting With My Family, Netflix s GLOW, and this year s NBC series Young Rock.(Photo by Starz)Waldron began conceiving the story in 2013 when he says the “idea of trying to build a little indie wrestling promotion into the biggest thing in the world to compete against the WWE was especially crazy, because there was simply no infrastructure.” Events that he says used to be recorded on “sh y handheld, camcorders” are now done with GoPros and “anybody can put on a wrestling event that really feels top flight.”And shows like GLOW and Young Rock depict the world of wrestling, but they’re set decades in the past.“I like making a show after the wrestling star has burned bright and maybe it s burned at its brightest,” Waldron said. “And now these guys are living in the shadow of all of the giants that came before.”Heels premieres at 9 p.m. on Sunday, August 15 on Starz.
With so many of us social-distancing and staying in, our Watchlists are going to empty out very quickly as we burn through all those I ve-been-meaning-to-watch shows and movies we ve been saving for a rainy day.

That s essentially the log line for this supernatural horror film, which centers on an alien child who crash-lands on Earth, finds a home with two loving human parents, and eventually grows up to become an agent of terror. With Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn s name in the credits (he s one of the producers) and a unique spin on the traditional superhero tale, the movie has raised fan expectation higher than your run-of-the-mill horror flick.5a.

Folks have been a little skeptical of the remake ever since Will Smith was announced in the role of Genie, mostly because the late Robin Williams work in the role is so iconic.

Though it s difficult to say whether or not Rocketman will experience the kind of success that Bohemian Rhapsody did, it certainly appeals to the same audience, and it makes for a nice bit of counterprogramming for Godzilla: King of the Monsters.Like this?
