虽说这款游戏在手游里制作还算精良，但想要对标原神或3D版DNF，或许就有点想当然了。先不说游戏本身画面并没达到原神三渲二高度，再有就是目前这款游戏的打击感依旧差劲，这对于以动作快感为卖点的手游来说是致命的。新万博Happy Valentine s Day! As many of you prepare to wow your better halves with fantastic displays of affection, you may also be looking for a snuggle-worthy romantic comedy to watch. With that in mind, we here at Rotten Tomatoes decided to poll our audience to see who everyone thought should be considered the Queen of Rom-Coms. We put together a list of 25 leading ladies from romantic comedies and asked you to vote one of them to the top, and the winner is Julia Roberts!The usual suspects garnered the most votes, with Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Aniston, and Sandra Bullock pulling in respectable tallies ranging from 7% to 10% of the vote. In the end, however, it came down to the wire, as two actresses who ruled the genre during the 1980s and 1990s nearly tied for the top spot: Meg Ryan, star of When Harry Met Sally, French Kiss, and a trio of comedies with Tom Hanks, including the iconic Sleepless in Seattle; and Julia Roberts, star of Pretty Woman, My Best Friend s Wedding, Runaway Bride, and Notting Hill. Ryan earned 20% of the vote, but it was Roberts who came away with the crown with 21%.

Documentary Feels Good Man looks at the how cartoonist Matt Furie’s drawing of a smiling green frog unintentionally became a symbol for hate on the Internet.“This is something that has never happened before,” director Arthur Jones told journalists. “The Anti-Defamation League never has declared a meme a hate symbol before. It has never declared a copyrighted character a hate symbol before.”He says it was “a process” for Furie, who participated in the film, “to figure out how to handle this. He tried to handle that via his artistic community first. Then he tried to find a set of lawyers to collaborate with to enforce the copyright in a way that he felt was right for him. While he s doing this, he s an artist; he s starting a family — there s a lot of stuff going on.”Feels Good Man will air on October 19 as part of PBS’ Independent Lens series.Coming to You from the Bat Cave …(Photo by National Geographic)Journalists caught glimpses of lots of celebrities’ houses through this all-virtual press tour. But only one panel streamed from inside a bat cave: bat scientist Kendra Phelps and epidemiologist Chris Golden introduced us to some new friends while speaking on the panel for National Geographic’s upcoming documentary, Virus Hunters.Airing November 1 to be a companion piece to that month s issue of the magazine, the special will tell “the stories of those heroic experts on the frontlines who are racing to identify the chain of events that could cause the next global pandemic,” said Nat Geo Senior Vice President of Communications Chris Albert, who introduced the panel.“Virus Hunters will aim to offer solutions, and some of those could include the work that Kendra and Jim [Desmond, a fellow panelist and a wildlife veterinarian] are doing where there is monitoring and surveillance of what is actually unfolding naturally within ecosystems,” Golden said. “I think it will beg the question of further policy- and decision-making that would lean on us to really view conservation as an important tool for public-health interventions.”

(Photo by CD Projekt Red)Every year in late spring, gamers and press from around the globe converge on the Los Angeles Convention Center to get a sneak peek of the latest and greatest video games being revealed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.For E3 2019 this week, heavy hitters Microsoft, Nintendo, and Ubisoft broke out the big guns for their latest projects, but a number of movie- and TV-based games have emerged as some of the week s most promising prospects. Game developers no doubt hope to score the same sort of critical acclaim as last year s Marvel s Spider-Man.Here are 10 of those pop culture–centric projects — and two honorable mentions — that already have our thumbs twitching in anticipation!STRANGER THINGS 3: THE VIDEO GAMEDeveloper: BonusXPPublisher: En Masse EntertainmentPlatforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PCRelease Date: July 4Following their ravenous consumption of new Stranger Things episodes this summer, fans can dive deeper into the sci-fi horror series third season in a new game releasing day and date with the show. Featuring a charmingly retro visual style, complete with a pixel-perfect Sheriff Hopper, as well as solo and co-op play, Stranger Things 3: The Video Game invites fans to solve puzzles, battle supernatural baddies, and uncover Hawkins — and the Upside Down s — darkest secrets.MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: THE BLACK ORDERDeveloper: Koei Tecmo Games, Team NINJAPublisher: NintendoPlatforms: Nintendo SwitchRelease Date: July 19Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order easily earns its title, as it allows players to assemble teams of iconic characters from all corners of the Marvel Universe. Playing solo — or as part of a four-player super-team — fans can choose from nearly 40 characters, from the Avengers and Fantastic Four to the X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy. Dynamic action-RPG gameplay, a gorgeous visual presentation, and an original Thanos-thwarting tale round out this fan-pleasing package.BLAIR WITCHDeveloper: Bloober TeamPublisher: Lionsgate GamesPlatforms: Xbox One, PCRelease Date: August 30The future of the Blair Witch franchise might be in limbo, but the cult-favorite film series faithful followers can return to the Black Hills Forest this summer. A story-driven, psychological horror entry from the team behind the nerve-fraying Layers of Fear games, Blair Witch weaves a fresh, frightening tale, complete with shaky camcorder footage, atmospheric environments, and the sort of imagery that will take up permanent residence in your nightmares.STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDERDeveloper: Respawn EntertainmentPublisher: Electronic ArtsPlatforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PCRelease Date: November 15Gaming s latest take on the galaxy far, far away puts players in the role of Cal Kestis, a Padawan on the run from the Empire s Jedi-hunting Inquisitors.

Winterfell Is Yours, Your Grace In another recent tease, released January 6 by HBO as part of a 2019 preview, showed Jon introducing Queen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) to Sansa at Winterfell.#GameofThrones returns to @HBO this April. pic.twitter.com/1muHcwJIFJ Game of Thrones (@GameOfThrones) January 7, 2019The tease shows Sansa approaching Daenerys: Winterfell is yours, Your Grace. This moment tells us:Jon and Daenerys arrived safely at Winterfell.Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) and Brienne of Tarth are there.Sansa has her diplomacy Uggs on.The new footage backs up an EW report from November that the season will open at Winterfell with Daenerys and her followers meeting up and mingling uneasily with Jon Snow s northern coalition. It will surprise absolutely no one to learn that Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) isn’t thrilled that Jon bent the knee to his fancy new Targaryen girlfriend, at least not at first. What We Can Expect in Season 8(Photo by HBO)We ve already had a glimpse at the anticipated meeting between Sansa and Daenerys, but there s so much more to savor about the Mother of Dragons arriving at Winterfell.One moment we can t wait to see is Jon reuniting with Arya, but we re also very much looking forward to Jorah Mormont meeting little Lady Lyanna Mormont — please, please, please let that be a thing.Bran has wanted to have a chat with Jon forever. We can expect that conversation; though Bradley indicated to EW that Sam will be the one to break it to Jon that he just had sex with his aunt. On the bright side, he s heir to the Iron Throne.There may or may not be fallout from Petyr Baelish s death: Will Sansa have to smooth things over with the Lord of the Vale, her cousin Robin Arryn? The kid has potential to do epic damage to the Northern coalition.(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Sam also has yet to learn about his father s and brother s deaths. That revelation is surely on the horizon. How will that affect his relationship with Daenerys, and could it be the one thing that drives a wedge between Jon and Sam?And as bleak as it is to think about, there s going to be that amazing first-contact scene between the Army of the Dead and the men of the North. Sure, they ve already mowed over the wall and the Night s Watch with their wight-dragon Viserion, but watching them hit the Umbers Last Hearth or the Karstarks Karhold will be a spectacle. Hopefully, we ll get a taste of that before Winterfell.The very first teaser trailer, released back in December, showed ice and fire meeting somewhere in what looked like the Riverlands — as if Riverrun could take much more.Speaking of the Riverlands, for those of us who ve been reading the latest from George R.R. Martin, Fire Blood, his descriptions of the Dance of Dragons should make us both eager for and fearful of a meeting between wight-dragon Viserion and his brothers, Drogon and Rhaegal. It s sure to be vicious. With that, the question of who will ride Rhaegal arises. Surely, it will be the son of the warrior-prince the dragon is named after.All that, plus we have six episodes in which to conclude Cleganebowl.Game of Thrones’ Biggest Battle Yet(Photo by HBO)EW s November 2018 story also describes preparation and reactions to filming the final season battle between the human allies against the Night King s Army of the Dead, which took 55 nights to film the external scenes alone. The production expanded the Winterfell set to accommodate the battle, which actor Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, described as brutal It makes the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park, referring to season 6 s epic battle between Jon and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon).While filming of season 8 overall took 10 months, filming of the battle of Winterfell took 11 weeks of night shoots – a schedule the production team referred to as “The Long Night” that inspired “We Survived The Long Night” jackets worn by the crew – with up to 750 people working through the night in temperatures at or near freezing, EW s latest report revealed. Actors would huddle for warmth around space heaters in tents or seek shelter in the production trailers. One of the series regular actresses fainted, but returned to work the next day.(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)The battle will cut between the various characters during the fight. We’ve been building toward this since the very beginning, it’s the living against the dead, and you can’t do that in a 12-minute sequence,” Benioff said, according to the magazine s November article.The scene is completely unprecedented and relentless and a mixture of genres even within the battle. There are sequences built within sequences built within sequences,” according to Cogman in the March EW report.Benioff and Weiss, Bryan Cogman, and Dave Hill are writers for the new season.That Game of Thrones Reunion(Photo by HBO)Following reports that Jason Momoa, who appeared as Khal Drogo in the series, and other actors who played deceased characters from the series were spotted in Ireland, news came out that a reunion was happening that would make up a special feature in the eight-season full-series box set. The special was reportedly hosted by Conan O Brien, who had previously gathered GoT heavyweights, like this time in 2016.Who s Alive and Which Crew Are They With We ve waited over a year for the new season, and the anticipation has been excruciating. It s also given us some time to take stock of who s still breathing — or, at least, moving around — and where we left them. Here s the list of players with some updated notes from the first full trailer (see our shot-by-shot trailer 1 breakdown here):(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)TEAM MOTHER OF DRAGONSDaenerys Targaryen — just had sex with her nephew on a boat to White Harbor headed toward Winterfell. In teasers and the new trailer, she s seen at Winterfell.Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) — on that same boat, pining for his Dragon Queen. Dinklage, who has the hand of the queen pin on his costume in the EW gallery, says Tyrion is “trying to figure out who he really is” under the circumstances. Would that be a Lannister or — as fans have guessed — not? In the new trailer, Tyrion appears in only one shot, gazing skyward.Jorah Mormont — same as Tyrion most likely. Jorah is seen in the trailer with Valyrian steel sword Heartsbane, the Tarly family sword that he could have gotten only from Sam.Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) — presumed alive, but imprisoned by her uncle Euron Greyjoy.Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) — headed out to sea to save his sister Yara.(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Varys (Conleth Hill) — presumably on the boat to White Harbor headed toward Winterfell. He appears in the first trailer hiding in the Winterfell crypt with Gilly, Little Sam, and a group of women and children.Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) — presumably on the boat to White Harbor headed toward Winterfell. Emmanuel told EW that Missandei is fighting for life for the love of Grey Worm (we see the two kiss in the trailer), but Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) — Anderson told EW the characters know that “the chances of anyone surviving are remote.” He is also presumably on the boat to White Harbor headed toward Winterfell.Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma) — presumed alive, but imprisoned by Cersei at King s Landing, watching her daughter die from a dose of the poison tears of Lys.Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman) — last seen reluctantly agreeing to stay behind to keep the peace in Mereen.(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)TEAM KING IN THE NORTH, KNEE-BENDER, TARGARYEN, AND RIGHTFUL HEIR TO THE IRON THRONEJon Snow — having sex with his aunt Daenerys on a boat to White Harbor headed to Winterfell. “He’s in love,” Harington says and describes what comes next as “a sledgehammer” in EW s March photogallery. In the trailer, Jon is seen in the Godswood at Winterfell in front of the weirwood tree, with Daenerys and her dragons, and in various other snippets.Sansa Stark — at Winterfell chatting with Arya on the castle s ramparts. Turner is seen in her Stark armor in the EW photogallery and says that Sansa has been enjoying leadership. In the teasers, we saw Sansa greet Daenerys and Jon at Winterfell, and in the trailer, she s shown seeing dragons fly over the castle.Arya Stark — at Winterfell chatting with Sansa on the castle s ramparts, having just executed Lord Petyr Baelish. Arya wears cloth/fur armor that protects her right side, under her sword arm, and leaves her sword unencumbered in the EW gallery, and Williams says her character is somewhat torn between being Arya Stark of old and “her unfinished business.” Arya is show in action in the first full trailer, battling wights and running for her life.Bran Stark — at Winterfell with Samwell Tarly, figuring out that Jon Snow is the true heir to the Iron Throne. In the trailer, Bran says, “Everything you did brought you where you are now…where you belong .home.” He is shown still sitting with Sam, who exhales frosty breath (a previously used sign of White Walkers close by). Hempstead-Wright teased to EW that Bran is less robotic in the final season. In a conversation with Rotten Tomatoes, Hempstead-Wright gave us some insight into how the Three-Eyed Raven thing works: “It’s like he’s got a dictionary in front of him, the whole of time. And he’s got access. He can look up anything he wants and [the old] Three-Eyed Raven had been in the cave for a thousand years, and had looked through every single page, has memorized every single page, whereas Bran now he’s just been given this huge book he still needs to be reminded of places to go and still needs to be told what to look up.(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)“I think the job description of being the Three-Eyed Raven requires you — in order to not have some kind of PTSD total trauma — to switch off a lot of your human traits, because if you were a human who was forced to live every single thing that’s ever happened in the world, your brain would fry, you’d go completely mad, and you’d just break down and stop functioning You are the keeper of the history of the world. And therefore, you have to be strong enough not to let it completely break you apart.”Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) — at Winterfell combining his knowledge with Bran s visions to uncover the realm s most well-kept secret. The trailer shows Sam still sitting with Bran and suggests that Sam will give/loan Jorah Mormont his family s Valyrian steel sword, Heartsbane.Gilly (Hannah Murray) with baby Sam — last seen riding into Winterfell with Sam, in the trailer, she and Little Sam are seen in the Winterfell crypt with Varys.Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) — presumably on the boat to White Harbor after the events of the season 7 finale, the trailer shows a quick glimpse of Davos on the ramparts of a castle — likely Winterfell, of course.Melisandre (Carice van Houten) — the Red Priestess of R hllor was last seen telling Varys that she was headed to Volantis, but that she would return to die in this strange country just like him. She does not appear in teasers or the trailer.(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Brienne — last seen at the armistice talks, she s presumably headed back to Winterfell. The trailer shows her standing with in front of Knights of the Vale and appears to show her cutting down wights.Podrick Payne (Daniel Portman) — generally wherever Brienne is, Pod can be seen right by her side in front of the Knights of the Vale.Sandor The Hound Clegane (Rory McCann) — last seen at the armistice talks, he s presumably on the boat to White Harbor with Jon and Daenerys. Cleganebowl is on, by the way! McCann pretty much guarantees there will be a face-off with his brother, Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane (Hafþór Björnsson) in EW s March 4 photogallery.Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) — last seen at the top of the Wall as a portion of it exploded in front of him, we presumed he was alive, because we wanted him to finish wooing Brienne. The trailer shows him with the next two in our list, walking through a seemingly empty and large castle or fortress.Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer) — with Tormund and also confirmed alive by the trailer.Eddison Dolorous Edd Tollett (Ben Crompton) along with the Night’s Watch — he last seen at the Wall and is confirmed alive by the first trailer; Castle Black Night s Watch should be in fighting form, but the Eastwatch brothers will be dead, dying, and reanimating.Gendry (Joe Dempsie) — last seen collapsing at the Wall at Castle Black and asking Edd Tollett to send ravens for Daenerys to save Jon and the remnants of his Magnificent Seven, Gendry appears in the trailer overseeing the smithing of dragonglass weapons.Meera Reed (Ellie Kendrick) — last seen saying goodbye to Bran at Winterfell, saying that she s going to see her father, Howland Reed (maybe we ll finally get to meet the elder Reed in season 8).Maester Wolkan (Richard Rycroft) — Winterfell.Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsey) — Winterfell.Yohn Royce (Rupert Vansittart) and the Knights of the Vale — last seen at Winterfell, Ser Royce seems to be absent in the shot of the Knights of the Vale behind Brienne and Pod in the trailer.Robin Arryn (Lino Facioli) — last seen in the Vale as a ward in the home of House Royce.Hot Pie (Ben Hawkey) — last seen working at the Inn at the Crossroads in the Riverlands, giving Arya news that her half-brother is King in the North.(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)TEAM CERSEI LANNISTER-BARATHEONCersei Lannister Baratheon (Lena Headey) — in King s Landing, planning to do nothing as the North is invaded. The trailer shows, however, that Cersei s minions have been very busy on her behalf, as the Golden Company sellswords sail toward King s Landing. Cersei, meanwhile, has a glass of wine.Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) — last seen at the armistice talks, claiming that he would be sitting out the war with the dead from his throne in the Iron Islands (because the dead can t swim), but Cersei later reveals that he s headed to Braavos to pick up the Golden Company of sellswords and ferry them to Westeros to defend King s Landing and fight for the queen. Euron, however, is not clearly shown in the trailer.Qyburn (Anton Lesser) — at Cersei s side when we left him in season 7, the trailer shows him still there.Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson) — at Cersei s heels, and he is still there in the season 8 trailer.(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)M.I.A., UNDECIDED, UNKNOWN, UNRELIABLE, OR OTHERJaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) — last seen committing treason and heading north on the Kingsroad. Jaime shows up in the trailer apparently explaining himself to the Northern coalition and then also clearly in the thick of the fighting. Coster-Waldau states definitively what we thought saw in that moment at the end of season 7: that Jaime is “choosing to do what he believes is right.” (Why he’s wearing his sword on his left hip when he would need to unsheathe it using his left hand is a mystery – perhaps just for the sake of the photo.) Coster-Waldau had previously told Rotten Tomatoes that he was very much looking forward to Jon and Daenerys’ relationship: “It’s so easy to be morally shocked about the brother and sister thing, and yes, it’s absolutely horrific I think 95 percent of all the audience are rooting for Daenerys and Jon Snow to get together, which is going to be the next incestuous relationship. That’s the beautiful irony, though.”Bronn (Jerome Flynn) — last seen leaving the armistice talks to take Podrick for a drink.Archmaester Ebrose (Jim Broadbent) and the rest of the Citadel — keeping their heads in their books — for now at least, though it would be great to see Broadbent and those crusty ol maesters swoop in to save the day, or a day (please be useful).Tycho Nestoris (Mark Gatiss) and the Iron Bank of Braavos — last seen offering to loan Cersei more money, the Iron Bank representative will swing in whatever direction promises to enrich them.Melessa Tarly (Samantha Spiro) — last seen at Horn Hill, her husband and son have since been burned by Daenery s dragon; her allegiance is uncertain given her warm relationship with Sam.Talla Tarly (Rebecca Benson) — last seen at Horn Hill, her father and brother have since been burned by Daenery s dragon; her allegiance is uncertain given her warm relationship with Sam.Edmure Tully (Tobias Menzies) — last seen securing Riverrun for Jaime Lannister, he was presumed to have been returned to the dungeons at The Twins, but since all of the men of House Frey were killed by Arya, he may have been released by the Frey women.Roslin Frey Tully (Alexandra Dowling) — last seen at The Twins, Roslin could possibly now be the Lady of The Twins and may have released her husband (however useless Edmure might be).Syrio Forel (Miltos Yerolemou) — last seen in season 1, Arya s dancing master was never confirmed dead, and his resurrection would certainly delight fans.Jaqen H ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) — last seen in Braavos at the House of Black and White, Jaqen (or whatever his name is) could be anywhere.Hodor (Kristian Nairn) — we didn’t see him die on screen, at least not permanently; sad to say, but he could be marching with the Army of the Dead.Benjen Stark (Joseph Mawle) — see Hodor. Nymeria — last seen in the area of the Neck, staying as far away as possible from all of them..Biggest mystery @GameOfThrones Where s Ghost??? 😢😢 pic.twitter.com/k0KU97EJaN ａ ｌ ｔ (@ianaltf4) November 21, 2018(Photo by HBO)THE ARMY OF THE DEAD (Mostly Dead, But Slightly Alive — or All Dead, But Mobile)The Night King (Vladimir Furdik) — collapsing the Wall and flying wight-dragon Viserion over the North. He does not appear in the trailer, but Furdik told EW that the Night King is a monster with a mission: He s got a specific target he intends to kill.100,000 or so wights and White Walkers — following closely behind their dragon-rider — which begs the question: Could he be a Targaryen? The Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow–edition) showed us a blond man being stabbed with dragonglass, but who was he and where did he come from? The wights/White Walkers are only suggested in the trailer in shadows, except for the gnawed legs of a wight horse that appears at the end.Check back as more details come in on season 8 of Game of Thrones
“There is a great responsibility at hand,” warns series newcomer Spock (Ethan Peck) in a trailer for the second season of CBS All Access Star Trek: Discovery.Season 2 of the sci-fi/adventure series begins with a major crisis: the inexplicable appearance of seven red signal bursts across 30,000 light years of space. These signals, it’s said, typically follow the arrival of a being that Starfleet has coined the “Red Angel.”“This could be the defining moment for multiple civilizations, millions of lives. The future may be determined by our actions — yours and mine,” Spock says, claiming that this angel has shown him an apocalyptic vision of what’s to come should nothing be done. “Someone, or something, is going to end all sentient life in the galaxy,” he says in the clip.Rotten Tomatoes spoke with members of the expansive ensemble — from star Sonequa Martin-Green (Michael Burnham) to newcomer Anson Mount (Capt. Christopher Pike) — along with producers Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin to learn more of what’s to come this season. Below are 13 must-know secrets they revealed ahead of the premiere.1. The Federation is rebuilding after the war(Photo by Michael Gibson/CBS)If one thing is certain in the Star Trek multiverse, it’s that there are surprises around every corner. So while Martin-Green wasn t able to reveal many specific plotlines prior to the show s season 2 premiere, she did tease two major tidbits: First, the season will pick up in the midst of rebuilding after the Federation’s war with the Klingons. And second, it’s going to make audiences cry.“Season 2 is very much an exploration of science and faith. We ve heard that said quite a bit, but it is also a deeply emotional story because we have a lot to deal with after that war, she said. That war left a lot in its wake, and we have to look at it. It s like the tornado runs through the home and then you re just bearing down and you re gritting your teeth, and when the tornado leaves, now you ve got to turn to your house and be like, OK, so now we don t have a roof. OK, now there s flooding everywhere. OK, how are we going to clean this all up? Do we want to still live here? Those are the questions that we have to ask ourselves, that we do ask ourselves, and I love that. We re willing and ready to do the work and to show how much work it actually is to rebuild.”2. Burnham’s been forgiven, but her actions aren’t forgotten(Photo by Jan Thijs/CBS)Star Trek: Discovery’s first season was very much a story of redemption for Michael, who set in motion the events that ultimately led to the central war. And while the season’s end saw her reinstated as a commander in Starfleet, Martin-Green said those earlier misfires still affect the woman we see on screen today.“Unfortunately, it never goes away, right? You make a deep mistake like that, that has those kinds of consequences, it never goes away,” she said. “You learn how to deal with it better and better as each day goes on, but it doesn t just go away, and it is something Burnham will have to contend with for the rest of her life. There will always be those reminders of that. There will always be reminders of the great loss of the Klingon War and how many people fell from that. And it s a big part of the maturation that happens with Burnham over the course of season 1: the cost of arrogance, and the cost of thinking that because you were trained in logic, you re right, and because you were trained in logic, you know what s best for everyone. That’s not the case, she continued. If you have to make a decision for everyone, everyone s perspective is needed. That was a big lesson to learn. And so that changed Burnham s identity, and that s a permanent change…. I say to Sarek in the pilot of the show that my emotion informs my logic, but my logic needs to inform my emotions as well. I have to find a way to accept my humanity fully, but also accept my logical way of thinking fully, and have them work together seamlessly. I think that s going to take some more time.”3. Burnham and Ash Tyler have unfinished business(Photo by CBS)Actor Shazad Latif confirmed to Rotten Tomatoes that even though his Ash Tyler (formerly Voq) left Starfleet with L’Rell (Mary Chieffo) after the war, he will be returning to Discovery.“He does go back onto the ship because [he’s] sort of acting as this mediator, so he’ ll see them again,” he said.Plus, he and Burnham may have some unfinished business in their affair.“That is yet another thing that has to be dealt with because, yes, Ash is the first man that Burnham has ever been in love with,” Martin-Green said. “There wasn t any time for that on Vulcan, and there certainly wasn t any time for that once I joined Starfleet. It was just career, career, career, career. So yes, [his leaving] was a deep emotional betrayal, and that doesn t just go away. Him deciding to serve L Rell because he s searching for who he is and where he belongs, that s a decision that I respect very much as Burnham, but that doesn t mean that the betrayal goes away. So I will say that no stone is left unturned.”4. The truth about Burnham and Spock will be revealedSome viewers have found it odd that the Spock they know from the original series (which is set 10 years ahead of Discovery) never mentioned his half-sister Burnham, but showrunner Kurtzman promised that that mystery and more will be resolved in season 2.“Obviously there was a lot of questions from the last season, right? How come Spock has never mentioned his half-sister Michael Burnham? And we owe the audience an answer to that,” Kurtzman said. “It is through his relationship, his very complicated and broken relationship with Michael, that he s able to actualize himself as the Spock we know from TOS, and that s a big part of what this season s about.”Peck, the actor behind this younger, bearded iteration of Spock, also expanded on that a bit, saying, “They haven t seen each other in a long time — and there s a reason for that. 5. This is an “untold chapter” of Spock s life(Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)Click to see full poster.“One of the things that I m most excited about with this season is that this is the untold chapter of Spock,” Kurtzman said. “This is Spock pre-TOS; he s not actualized as the character you know from the original series yet.”Touching on the mysterious red bursts and the appearance of what’s been called the “red angel,” Kurtzman added that coming face to face with the unknown will challenge Spock in unexpected ways.“He has seen something that his logical brain and logical training can not make sense of, and he s emotionally ill-equipped to deal with it. So logic and emotion have failed Spock. He is trying to figure out who he is and what the signals mean and the red angel means, Kurtzman said.6. Ethan Peck embodies Spock(Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)Especially with franchises as beloved as Star Trek, there’s going to be heightened scrutiny around the casting of characters new and old. Spock for Discovery season 2 proved no different. Fortunately, after auditioning more than 400 actors, Kurtzman and executive producer Heather Kadin knew they’d found their man when Peck walked in the room.“I think it s because of the time of Spock s life we re going to be looking into and diving into, you wanted someone who exhibited those qualities that you ve seen in the later versions of Spock, but also he s younger,” Kadin said. “It s like casting a younger version of yourself. It s hard because you want that person to look like they could grow into the person you know. So that s hard to find.”Despite the stereotypes surrounding Vulcans, the role needed an actor who could exhibit wide ranges of emotion.“There s a misconception that Vulcans don t have emotion, [but] that s not the case at all. They contain it very differently than humans do, Kurtzman said. So what you re looking for from an actor is somebody who can convey enormous amount of emotion behind that stoic Vulcan veneer. And when Ethan came in, then read, it was really clear that he was feeling so much and working so hard to contain it. Especially with the Spock that you re going to see in this season who doesn t know what to do with his emotion and doesn t understand how logic and emotion fit together yet. He just seemed like the guy. It was very natural. 7. Peck is Nimoy family–approved(Photo by Paramount Pictures)While discussing his character analysis and process in finding how he was going to bring Spock to life on Discovery, Peck recounted how he watched hours of the original series in addition to taking notes from Zachary Quinto’s performance from the latest trilogy of feature films. But one thing that really crystallized his Spock was paying a visit to the famed Leonard Nimoy’s family.“I met with the Nimoy family, which was incredible. They were so warm and curious. It was like the first step of making me feel worthy of this because they were just so lovely,” Peck recalled. “I watched the documentaries they each made. [Nimoy s son] Adam made For the Love of Spock, and [Nimoy s daughter] Julie made Remembering Leonard Nimoy. They inspired me to be curious, and that was the best advice I could have gotten because Spock is ultimately a curious being. He wants to understand. He s special in the way that he has a big heart, ultimately, in order to take in the universe, as well as a great mind.”8. Section 31 is a looming presence(Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)Section 31 has been a controversial addition to the Star Trek universe since its introduction, but here, the top-secret intelligence division provides a perfect and tantalizing vehicle for the return of Emperor Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) from the Mirror Universe.“Starfleet lives in a very black and white world. They have rules; they have to stick to those rules. You can bend them, but you can t break them,” Kurtzman explained. “Section 31 lives entirely in shades of gray, and they do all of the things that Starfleet proper can t do. That s really interesting because when you have a character like Georgiou, whose conscience is constantly being tested and her ethics are constantly being tested, she s really in some ways the perfect person to do the dirty work that Starfleet can t do, and that s an exciting place to explore. It s a little bit gloves off, which is what s fun about Section 31.”9. Discovery will embrace exploration(Photo by Ben Mark Holzberg/CBS)Despite the likely more menacing nature of the seven red bursts this season, some positives come the development, according toAnthony Rapp, who plays Paul Stamets, and Mount. First of all, the bursts’ appearance is likely what brought Pike to Discovery in the first place thanks to the ship s space-travel capabilities.“The reason [Pike] needs that fast ship is that they ve been charting these seven signals around the galaxy. The energy required to produce them is beyond anything humanity has ever encountered,” Mount said. “We don t even know where to begin with what this could be. This could be a completely other level of existence that we ve never encountered before. He is as consumed by this question as anything he s ever been consumed by.”And second, while season 1 was largely encumbered by the war with the Klingons, season 2’s developments reinvigorate the series with Star Trek’s trademark sense of curiosity and exploration.“The fundamental core attitude of Starfleet is curiosity, and [Pike] is fully in the throes of that when we encounter him in the first episode of this season, Mount said.“The seven signals are requiring us literally to go around the galaxy and figure out what the hell s going on,” Rapp added. “That means that sometimes you have to visit places that we haven t visited before. So, yes, it was by design that writers are like, ‘Yes, we want to make sure we re doing more of that exploration stuff.’ There s still going to be this spine of the long form story, but it will also have a little more like, ‘This episode we re going to be on this asteroid,’ and, ‘This episode we re going be on this planet.’ That s been really satisfying.”One new territory explored? Saru’s home planet, Kaminar.10. Love may be in the cards for Saru(Photo by Ben Mark Holzberg/CBS)The end of season 1 saw Saru (Jones), a Kelpien — an alien race generally regarded as cowardly — earn commendations for his bravery in helping to end the Klingon war, and the second season could see even more growth for the character in the form of a potential love interest.“We have to procreate somehow,” Jones deadpanned when Rotten Tomatoes asked whether that was in the cards for the character. “I had a private conversation last night over dinner with our showrunner Alex Kurtzman about that very thing. About the possibility. So I don t know what s ahead for Saru. Personally, I would like him to find love because every character I play I want to find love and a sense of belonging in some way, shape, or form. After the events of the first season, a whole new world has opened up to him,” Jones added, “so love should open up too, shouldn t it? I like that idea.”11. Ash and L’Rell’s relationship is more tenuous than everOutside of Starfleet, L’Rell (Chieffo) will explore her newfound political power among the Klingons and her developing relationship with Ash, who is undergoing a crisis of identity like no other. It doesn’t help that L’Rell feels guilt and remorse for her plan with Voq going haywire.“We’re in therapy now,” she joked. “It is a constant reminder that I failed [Voq]. I came up with the plan, he decided to sacrifice himself, and I was like: ‘I promise you, I ll make it work,’ and then I failed because I underestimated the integrity of the human spirit, which I think is a beautiful and interesting metaphor that she had to acknowledge.”Now that the two of them are back together and Ash does indeed remember his Klingon life as Voq, season 2 has plenty to play with between the two.“I didn t expect [Voq’s] memories to stay with him. I thought that I was getting rid of [Voq] when I did the surgery. That s the big shock in the finale…. So it s that navigation of, ‘How do I respect the choice that he made to be more human but still have that Klingon within him?’ It s very tense,” she revealed.12. Klingon leader L’Rell is modeled after female historical icons(Photo by Michael Gibson/CBS)Chieffo cited real-life historical icons including Queen Elizabeth and Cleopatra as inspiration for her character s journey this season, and said playing a powerful alien leader allowed her and the writers’ room to play with and expand upon how women in positions of power are portrayed onscreen.“So many of these stories have been told from a white, male perspective,” she said. “Now it s , it s sci-fi, she s an alien — we can take what we love about those women and give her a little bit more of a fully fleshed-out story. If I could say more specifically, I would, but those archetypes have been very important to me. Someone said to me, ‘Being alien is to shift into a different octave,’ which I really like. There s something about that that I think we both embody.”13. Star Trek mythology has inspired its stars real-life activism(Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)Star Trek: Discovery didn’t allow just Chieffo to reframe her perceptions of social justice in the real world. Both Martin-Green and Wilson Cruz (who plays Dr. Hugh Culber) praised the foundational ideologies of the franchise for emboldening their views on today’s most important issues off-screen.“I have to say as much as I much appreciate this job and this opportunity, I appreciate it more and more as each day passes with this [current political climate], Cruz said. It does inspire me to believe that there is a better alternative than the one we have at the moment. Our job as artists is to help people imagine and to help inspire them and to imagine a better world, especially in Star Trek. That s what it always has done. It s always asked its audience to imagine what it would be like if we all actually not just acknowledged and tolerated our differences, but celebrated those differences.”In that sense, Martin-Green says, Star Trek: Discovery is her personal call to arms.“For me, personally I consider Star Trek to be a call to arms. It s a call to rise; it s a call to action. Because yes, it s one thing to see this picture, it s one thing to see this utopia, in a sense. It s another thing to see the work it takes to get there…. I want to step on the battlefield and bring up my weapon of love — love is really a weapon. It s the most powerful weapon we have and it never fails.”New episodes of Star Trek: Discovery are released every Thursday on CBS All Access.

新万博 (Photo by New Line Cinema)During the casting for A Nightmare on Elm Street, director Wes Craven thought he needed a “big man.” After all, it was going to be a horror movie about an evil, dream-haunting psychopath who slaughters kids with a glove fitted with knives. In his mind, Craven was following the precedent set by Tobe Hooper in 1974 and John Carpenter in 1978 – The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween both featured hulking, unstoppable man-monsters. Craven even interviewed Kane Hodder – the man who would wear the hockey mask once Jason Voorhees took center stage in the Friday the 13th series – for the part.But a skinny, young actor named Robert Englund thought that most child abusers were weasels and creeps, not hulks. So he offered a different take on the lecherous Freddy Krueger, and not only would Nightmare take off because of it, but horror movies themselves would be changed forever.Released 35 years ago this week, A Nightmare on Elm Street took the concept of the bad guy as the marquee character – the one people not only came to see, but to actively cheer on – to whole new levels. The faceless, voiceless, mask-obscured killing machines that preceded Nightmare had to make way for a mugging, self-referential, hammy villain-hero.The Diva Who Shunned the MaskIn the end credits of Halloween, the character of Michael Myers isn’t even listed by name. He’s called “The Shape.” This is significant because Michael isn’t meant to be anyone. The whole point is that he just is, a silent menace in the periphery as the movie focuses on the guilt-ridden Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) and high school good girl Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis). With his slow movement, white, expressionless face, and complete silence, Michael is a terrifying blank slate.A few years later, Friday the 13th would completely obscure its main villain until the very end – revealing at last that the murders were committed by a revenge-obsessed woman scarred by the apparent death of her son, Jason, many years before. When Jason himself took the spotlight in the next few installments, he, too, was a silent, expressionless entity who at first wears a nondescript bag over his head before he even gets his signature goalie mask (in Part III).And yet, by 1986’s Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives, we saw the movie literally opening with a tongue-in-cheek James Bond parody:What happened? Freddy happened.A Nightmare on Elm Street had the same bland, suburban setting as Halloween and a similar gang of horny teens as the Friday films, but there was a key difference. Freddy wasn t just scary, he was darkly witty. He was creative. He was, well, a thousand times more interesting than anyone he killed.Sure, people went to horror movies for the killer or the monster – this had been true since the 1950s. You went to see The Blob because you wanted to see the blob. But this was different. Audiences liked Freddy. He was the star, not just the threat, and things only got hammier as the franchise went along. It was because, rather than going with yet another “big man” monster, Craven and Englund delivered a performance. Freddy was a theatrical diva.Would any other slasher work so well in a Fresh Prince video?The other competitors had no choice but to follow suit. Although somewhat hamstrung by their lack of personality, Jason and Michael still went through increasingly bizarre and laughable incarnations in an effort to keep up with Freddy. This is why we eventually got cyborg space-Jason and Busta Rhymes electrocuting Michael Myers in the crotch after he shouts, “Trick or treat, motherf er!”Post-Nightmare, movie slashers had to be more than just killers. They needed to be in the spotlight, not the shadows. One-liners, theatricality, and insane death scenarios all became requirements. We’d never have IT’s Pennywise or Scream’s Ghostface without Freddy.So to celebrate the mugging, one-liner-spewing dream-weaver on his 35th anniversary, let’s run down his greatest hits.The Five Best Freddy Kills1) A Nightmare on Elm Street: “Watch this.”Freddy’s first outing really sets the tone, and this scene has it all. Rather than simply stalking and killing Tina (Amanda Wyss), he toys with her, throwing out one-liners and a few party tricks as he leads her to an overly elaborate demise. Freddy is playing to the crowd.2) Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master: “Wanna suck face?”Freddy kills an asthmatic girl by dropping this one-liner before literally sucking the air out of her lungs and leaving her a deflated corpse.3) Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare: “Let’s trip out.”Freddy s satirical take on the “This is your brain…” PSAs from the 80s and 90s – complete with a cameo from former Freddy victim Johnny Depp – and an extended Super Mario Bros.-inspired kill is all the proof you need that he was a frustrated comedian.4) A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child: “Bon Appétit!”Dressing up as a chef and strapping a girl with an eating disorder into a high chair for the sole purpose of force-feeding her to death in front of her overbearing mother? Can you imagine Leatherface putting in this kind of multi-layered effort?5) A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors: “Welcome to prime time, b h!”A scene that begins with former talk show host Dick Cavett turning into Freddy before killing Zsa Zsa Gabor can’t possibly get any more insane, can it? Oh, yes. Freddy literally pops out of the TV and pulls Jennifer (Penelope Sudrow) face-first into the set with his mechanical TV arms. With an applause-baiting one-liner, of course.A Nightmare on Elm Street went into wide release on November 16, 1984.
从目前来看，《奥奇传说手游》之所以口碑下降，与过分氪金有着密不可分的关系，希望在后续的运营中，官方能够倾听玩家的建议，多对游戏内容进行调整。 (Photo by Paola Kudacki/BBC America)When Killing Eve first premiered, the urgent feeling that the show s protagonist, British Intelligence investigator Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), would be killed by the Season 1 finale, was ever-present. But what started as an engaging cat-and-mouse procedural between Eve and unhinged assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) soon evolved into the most unexpected love story to hit the small screen in years. And with Fleabag s Phoebe Waller-Bridge at the helm, it s no surprise that the show became a bonafide hit.If Season 1 was the awkward dating phase of their relationship, then the show s second installment could easily be viewed as the honeymoon. The BBC America show found Eve and Villanelle teaming up in an opposite-sides-of-the-law, Silence of the Lambs-style partnership. Their teamwork succeeded at bringing down Aaron Peel (Henry Lloyd-Hughes), a tech-savvy enemy who was working to pawn off a mysterious (and obviously dangerous) weapon, while inching Eve even closer to the dark side.Eve and her team worked at capturing Peel with Villanelle going deep undercover to woo the man. And while it all came to a head with Polastri s psycho partner slitting his throat, the Season 2 finale didn t end well for either of them. In a cliffhanger that sort of mirrored the closing of the first season where Eve stabbed Villanelle in the gut, the tables were shockingly turned, as Villanelle took out a gun and shot Polastri. As she lay bleeding out on the ground, many were left to wonder if the BBC America series was following through on the title s promise and actually killed Eve.As Killing Eve is set to return with new episodes on Sunday, April 12 at 9pm ET/PT to BBC America, that cliffhanger weighs heavily. It s not a spoiler to confirm Eve Polastri is still very much alive in Season 3, but the big question for fans is: How is the show s health as it moves into its third set of episodes? Does the story still deliver the witty edge and violent drama that connected with audiences in the first place? Are Oh and Comer, who ve both earned much-deserved accolades for their work, still turning in masterful performances? And does season 3 – overseen by new showrunner Suzanne Heathcote, following on from Phoebe Waller-Bridge (season 1) and Emerald Fennell (season 2) – leave us wanting a fourth helping of Eve and Villanelle?Here s what critics are saying about Season 3 of Killing Eve.THE SHOW STILL HAS ITS SIGNATURE STYLE AND BRUTAL PANACHE It can’t be stressed enough that Killing Eve Season 3 does not pull its punches, emotionally or when it comes to violence. In the five episodes sent to critics, there are truly grisly kills, horrific acts of cruelty, and some really shocking deaths. Killing Eve Season 3 manages to heighten the stakes once more. No one is safe, and you get the sense that the show is trying to expand itself beyond Eve and Villanelle’s relationship. — Meghan O Keefe, Decider One of the most refreshing shifts from last season is the music this season goes back to the beginning with a variety of dreamy foreign language tunes, with an emphasis on chic French electro-pop. On the rare occasion when the musical palette shifts greatly, it represents something greater and is well worth it. Often the lyrics line up astonishingly well with what’s happening on screen, alternately broadcasting Eve or Villanelle’s inner creep for all of us to hear. The music toys with us now that we have the audacity to think we know Killing Eve’s beats. More than ever before, it feels like Killing Eve is in direct conversation with its audience, daring us to declare our hunches, hope for our fanfics, and try to outsmart all three women, if not the show itself. — Delia Harrington, Den Of GeekVILLANELLE GETS AN ORIGIN STORY, AND JODIE COMER SHINES AGAIN (Photo by Des Willie/BBCA) Heathcote shifts the focus more to Villanelle in Season 3, digging into her past and rounding out the character’s origin story. Comer once again delivers a virtuoso performance that combines unhinged mania with wounded vulnerability and desire. The character has such a sense of whimsy and romanticism that you can occasionally forget that she’s a stone cold serial killer. — Brandon Katz, Observer As Villanelle desires to move into management the audience meets the o.g. Villanelle played by Harriet Walter and to say they have a hate-love relationship is an understatement. If you win an Emmy for Eve it affords you a bottle episode (five) which after the events at the end of four kills the series momentum. Obviously, Villanelle had a horrible mother and this was not a storyline I believe needed a full episode to explore. — Amanda Spears, Awards Watch BUT WE COULD DO WITH A LITTLE MORE EVE(Photo by Laura Radford/BBCA) Comer is great, so it doesn’t hurt to have more of her. But Oh is great as well, and it feels wrong to have her sidelined so much. Surely there must be a way to give the two leads equal time to share the spotlight. Comer’s role is the flashier one – she gets to have all the fun, killing her way across the landscape. Oh’s work is more subtle, more reserved, and that perhaps contributes to her reduced role. Oh is doing a lot of internal work here – Eve is broken now. Perhaps broken beyond repair. — Chris Evangelista, SlashFilm It may not be as balanced as it was in that first magical outing, and some of the plot points may feel a little recycled, but Killing Eve ultimately remains a devilish delight. — Allison Keene, Paste MagazineSEASON 3 s SHOWRUNNER IS TAKING RISKS, FOR BETTER AND WORSE
