With so many films produced and released every year, there s bound to be a few turkeys, and while we continue to track the great movies racking up trophies this awards season, there is one ceremony dedicated specifically to calling out the not so great ones. We re speaking, of course, of the annual Golden Raspberry Awards, a.k.a. the Razzies, who make it their mission to honor the very worst that Hollywood has to offer. Who doesn t love a little schadenfreude, right? The winners will be announced on February 23; read on for the full list of 2018 Razzie nominees.Worst Picture 在游戏市场游戏竞争日趋白热化的今天，如何提高用户黏性与ip忠诚度，几乎是每一款手游都需要面对、且亟需解决的问题。其中，最直接的方式，就是通过“肝”度的提升，将玩家困在难以挣脱的牢笼之中，将焦虑心态扩散到游戏里，从而被迫在游戏里“打卡上班”，这样一种策略，本身即是一种舍本逐末的驱遣。
别的游戏5年时间都够从入门到入土了，好家伙，5年才堪堪出来，错过了最好的时机，现在估计没多少人真的想玩了，下载安装>进游戏>终于玩上地下城手游了>卸载，圆梦了，青春结束了，想手游再圈一波估计难了。现在版本人物模型几乎都改了，不是怀旧玩家日思夜想的60版本内味，不过配音总算是改回了原声，算是保留了一个怀旧的点，部分角色的技能也改版了，还加了一个能强制中断所有技能的“闪现”，PK全是神仙尬舞，蹲伏原地退休，这些看现在的比赛服视频就知道了。亚博网址官方网站We re just going to say it: The TRON: Legacy soundtrack is one of the best pieces of movie music to grace theaters in decades. Scored entirely by legendary French electronic duo Daft Punk, it seamlessly combines more typical orchestral fanfare with the their signature synthwavey staccatos, and the result is both modern and sophisticated. There are moody synths and percussion moments like the theme of the movie s villain, and much of the score sounds like it was recorded using sounds from an actual computer.But Daft Punk don t let their reputation and background define their work on the film. Sure, they pull from their signature repertoire for the banger of a dance track that plays during their big cameo scene, but they also demonstrate a knack for big, emotional pieces that feel fully operatic, like an even moodier version of John Carpenter if he worked with an 85-piece orchestra. The whole album is a fantastic listen from beginning to end, and it likely saw heavy rotation in the collections of more than just film score nerds.The Film Is a Giant Allegory for Movie Sequels(Photo by ©Walt Disney Pictures)Though the plot of both Tron and Tron: Legacy are simple at their cores, they both keep their big allegories just barely hidden beneath the surface. The original film was about a world of anthropomorphic computer programs waiting for the day a human user would arrive and save them from the evil program ruling over them; when Flynn enters the Grid and does exactly that, he s regarded as a god. Legacy centers on Flynn s reunion with his son Sam (Garrett Hedlund), but the film utilizes that reunion to tell a story about Flynn the god and his creation, and likewise about a movie sequel and its predecessor.When Legacy reintroduces the audience to Flynn, he s living in exile in the Grid, cast out from its society by Clu — a program created in young Flynn s own image. Clu s entire purpose was to realize Flynn s vision of a perfect system; he s a reflection of a young Flynn s hubris and pride. So it makes sense that Clu would then try to purge everything he saw as imperfect — including his creator. In turn, Clu tries to be the creator of his own world by tearing everything down and building it back up to his liking, by eradicating the programs known as isomorphic algorithms or just ISOs and brainwashing everyone else into following him. Clu may be severely misguided, but his entire reason for existence was to carry out his creator s very specific bidding.In many ways, this creator/creation relationship is a mirror of the father/son one between Flynn and Sam. In the first act, we see Sam refuse to take his rightful place at his father s company s board, pranking them instead by stealing new products and releasing them for free before pulling a Batman-like escape from the building complex. Like Sam, Tron: Legacy also had to make its own name in the shadow of its predecessor s legend. Trying to please fans of the original while offering something to new audiences is a near impossible standard to meet, and the film itself seems to anticipate any blowback in the form of Clu — a creation that did everything its creator wanted and yet failed to please him.The Scenery-Chewing Is Delicious(Photo by ©Walt Disney Pictures)One of the biggest changes made in Tron: Legacy was Jeff Bridges portrayal of Flynn. In the original, he wasn t a hero. He went into the Grid to find evidence of a colleague stealing his code, but he didn t care for the programs. The fact that, mathematically, Sam should have already been born by the time of the first film but never appeared in it is a clever bit of retconning to make Flynn even more of an absentee jerk. But when we see him again in Tron: Legacy, he s part Steve Jobs, part The Dude from The Big Lebowski. And who doesn t love The Dude?Kevin Flynn turned from an ambitious programmer to a wise sage who won t abide people messing with my Zen thing, who reminisces about jamming and appreciates the miracle of bio-digital jazz. Bridges is clearly having fun with the character and the legacy the audience has in their head.Meanwhile, Michael Sheen shows up for a short but very memorable role as the shadowy nightclub owner Zuse, a digital love child of Ziggy Stardust and Frank-N-Furter from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. who swings his cane traipses through the End of the Line club fight scene like a cackling vaudevillian. It s as if he dropped in from the set of another film entirely, but somehow, it just works.It Manages to Recapture the Visual Marvel of the Original(Photo by Douglas Curran/©Walt Disney Pictures)The original Tron was praised for its groundbreaking use of computer-generated visuals, paving the way for everything from Pixar movies to Avengers: Endgame. Though Tron: Legacy suffers a bit from the uncanny valley effect when it comes to Clu, the film still manages to present a massive, vibrant world of its own.Remember the disc fights from the original Tron? The sequel reimagines them by amping everything up to 11 with high-flying acrobatics and pristine derezzing effects. Remember the then-revolutionary light cycle races? Legacy takes the concept three-dimensional with a huge set piece that twists and turns on a multi-level racetrack and even finds time to work in a dogfighting sequence that feels straight out of Star Wars.But the film also ventures beyond the Grid and depicts a sprawling, apocalyptic world with busy, shadowy streets and alleyways, vast deserts, and otherworldly mountains. Watching the light cycles for the first time may not be as groundbreaking as it was in 1982, but Tron: Legacy takes full advantage of the technological advancements of the past few decades to present a cutting-edge world you would want to live in. The film is glossy and designed to the teeth, and a decade after its release, it s still one of the slickest, most visually spectacular films to look at.Tron: Legacy was released in theaters on December 17, 2010.Thumbnail image by ©Walt Disney PicturesOn an Apple device?

“I remember looking out on the deck over all of Hollywood and feeling simultaneously on top of the world and never more isolated and alone. That was the beginning of the character for me.”“At the same time, I had just moved to LA. I was living in this house up in the Hollywood Hills that was like a friend of a friend of a friend s house. I somehow was paying like 0 a month to live in this glorified closet in a beautiful mansion. I don t quite know how it was arranged, but I remember there were rumors at the time, the rumors amongst the housemates, that it was the third-highest elevated house in all of Hollywood. That Johnny Depp had lived there once… It was on the top of this hill, up this very windy road that I immediately got into a car accident on. Then I didn t have a car, and I was stranded up on this house. I remember looking out on the deck over all of Hollywood and feeling simultaneously on top of the world and never more isolated and alone. That was the beginning of the character for me, the idea of this guy who was living in a house like this who d had every opportunity for success but still couldn t find a way to be happy.”“I really liked the sad episodes of The Simpsons, like ‘Lisa s Substitute’ or ‘Marge Be Not Proud’… That was kind of the tone I was going for.” I’d be lying if I said I was not inspired [by The Simpsons], if I tried to play it cool like, ‘Oh, what’s that show? Never heard of it.’ That was a huge influence on me growing up. There s the sense of the sensibility, the sense of humor. I particularly really liked the sad episodes of The Simpsons, the more emotional episodes like ‘Lisa s Substitute’ or ‘Marge Be Not Proud.’ I remember always loving those and wishing they were all like that, and so that was kind of the tone I was going for early on with BoJack because I want it to feel like a sad episode of The Simpsons. I think what s so great about those episodes in particular is they don t sacrifice jokes for emotion – they are very funny and full of great gags, but they are also very moving as well and very melancholy. Will Arnett as BoJack in season 1. (Photo by © Netflix)“By the end of the first season, they d be going, ‘Oh my God, why do I have feelings? Where did this come from?’”“I pitched it as a show that is going to start very fun and goofy, like most adult animated shows, but by the end of its first season, it s going to turn into more of a dramedy along the lines of a live-action show, like a Girls or even Mad Men, which felt a little more unprecedented in the world of animation, to indulge that much in seriousness and emotion. We were going to trick people by making people think it was a typical animated sitcom, but actually by the end of the season, they d be going, ‘Oh my God, why do I have feelings? Where did this come from?’. I always assumed the audience would join us on this ride and go from, ‘Oh, this is fun. This is silly,’ to, ‘Oh my God, I have feelings.’ It never occurred to me that some people might see the silly part and go, ‘Not for me,’ click and not even know that the rest of the show turns into this totally other thing. I think if I were doing it again, I might try to include more clues at the beginning that this was a more serious show. Even then, I think it s hard to do because there are clues in the beginning: In the first episode of the show, BoJack and Diane have like a two-minute conversation on the fleeting nature of happiness, right? That s the thing that everybody loved about the first season, that it did that change and that it was both of those things, that it wasn t just one or the other. When we were working on season two, I definitely felt the confidence of, ‘Let s go further in that direction because that s what the show is. That s the sweet spot.’”“People loved the Grouplove song, and people loved the Patrick Carney/Ralph Carney song. At the end of the day, we thought, ‘Could we do both?’”“Andy Gowan is our music supervisor, and he kind of put the word out to a bunch of different bands and a bunch of different artists, ‘Hey, here s a new show. We re looking for some music.’ We got a lot of responses, and the two that kind of rose to the top for me were this very playful, sing-songy, Grouplove song and this very heavy, spooky Patrick Carney and Ralph Carney song. I remember there was a lot of debate over which song are we going to use, and then as we kept watching, director Mike Roberts put together this incredible sequence of BoJack going through his day, and we played different songs over it to see what felt right. We d bring in people from the crew, we did focus groups, and it was pretty evenly split. People loved the Grouplove song, and people loved the Patrick Carney/Ralph Carney song. At the end of the day, we thought, ‘Could we do both?’ We ended up using the Patrick Carney, Ralph Carney song at the beginning… I think it is a little bit of a hint of what s to come in the show. It does make you think like, ‘Oh, this feels a little more dramatic than like a typical animated, fun sitcom.’ Then I think the Grouplove song [used in the end credits], kind of the opposite, is so fun and bright, and at the end of some of our episodes, which are really downer endings, it almost feels like an ironic poke in the ribs. I ve really enjoyed using that song as juxtaposition against all these different endings. Essentially as the show has gotten more and more serious, it s kind of revealed itself to have new layers to it.”Will Arnett (BoJack), Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Paul F. Tompkins (Mr. Peanutbutter), Alison Brie (Diane), and Aaron Paul (Todd). (Photo by Eric Charbonneau/Netflix) As soon as I saw Will Arnett s name, I was like, ‘Oh my God, yes, that s the guy,’ because he s so funny, but there s also a darkness to him. “The character of BoJack was not written with Will in mind. I wasn t thinking, ‘You know who d be a great, washed up, sad, lonely actor? Will Arnett.’ It was written for this drawing that Lisa Hanawalt had drawn of this horse guy. Then once we were developing the project, we thought, ‘Before we pitch this around, it might help to have some talent attached.’ Linda Lamontagne is our casting director, and she kind of drew up a list: ‘Here are some actors I think would be right for this.’ As soon as I saw Will Arnett s name, I was like, ‘Oh my God, yes, that s the guy,’ because he s so funny, but there s also a darkness to him. I feel like in his gravelly performance, you feel like he s lived a life, and there s a sadness lurking underneath there. Again, he s so funny. I mean, there are lines that we have made BoJack say that I would not have the chutzpah to give to an actor because they re so dopey, but that I knew that Will Arnett could pull them off. I remember in the writer s room, like looking at a line in a script being like, ‘Are we really going to keep this line in? This is so stupid.’ Then we do the table read, and Will Arnett reads it, and it s the funniest thing you ve ever heard. You re like, ‘Oh my God, he took our dumbest stuff, and he spun it into gold.’”“Who would be the funniest person to be judging this booty competition reality show? What if it s Felicity Huffman?”“We ve had a lot of incredible guest stars over the years. Usually, it just happens because we write a script, and then we think, ‘Who would be a good person for this script? Who would be the funniest person to be judging this booty competition reality show? What if it s Felicity Huffman?’ Then we go to them, and they usually say ‘yes,’ which is crazy. Occasionally, we ll hear something like, ‘Oh, this person s a big fan of the show.’ Then we ll keep them in mind if there s a part for them to play.When anybody likes the show, it s a shock and a delight to me, and it feels great, and it makes me suspicious that they re tricking me. Then when we ve had people come on the show or people that I ve seen, who have been heroes of mine, tell me they re fans of the show, that completely blows my mind. To have Weird Al Yankovic, who I grew up with, come be a guest star on the show and tell me personally that he really loves the show, my brain can t process that. I don t know how to take that kind of compliment, and I quickly change the subject to something else.”Amy Sedaris is Princess Carolyn. (Photo by © Netflix)“We wanted to, through Princess Carolyn, explore what is it like being another person in this person s life? That episode, ‘Say anything,’ has the first really sad ending of the series.”“I think a big turning point for our show happens in that first season at really episode seven and episode eight, which are called ‘Say Anything’ and ‘The Telescope.’ ‘Say Anything’ is episode seven, and that s an episode that s entirely told from Princess Carolyn s perspective. Up to that moment, almost everything that s happened in the show has been through BoJack[’s perspective]. A few episodes had small B stories or C stories, but they re really heavy A-story episodes. Then to switch it and be like, ‘No, BoJack is the side story this time, it’s really focused on this other character,’ felt like a bit of a departure for us. BoJack kind of falls into some sort of wreckage and steps out and like dusts himself off and wanders into the next misadventure. We wanted to, through Princess Carolyn, explore what is it like being another person in this person s life? What is it like attaching yourself to this kind of toxicity? That episode, ‘Say Anything,’ has the first really sad ending of the series. Everything up until then had been pretty light – or maybe we d end on like a dark kind of joke – but ‘Say Anything’ really ends on a serious, kind of sad moment with this lonely character. That for me was a real sign of where we wanted to go.”

5.23.1 3月喜迎Today s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news, covering new roles for Zac Efron, Idris Elba, Tom Hanks, Angelina Jolie, and Denzel Washington.This WEEK S TOP STORYANGELINA JOLIE IN TALKS TO LEAD MARVEL S THE ETERNALS(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)It s been a few weeks shy of a year now since we first heard that Marvel Studios was developing a movie based on The Eternals. Since then, it s been confirmed that The Eternals will be the next film to start production after Black Widow, likely for a late 2020 release (November 6, 2020, specifically). Despite that, one could argue that the project hadn t really been receiving much press or buzz, and the reason for that is sort of obvious: most non-comics fans don t know what The Eternals is (Thanos is an Eternal from Titan, but there are different groups of Eternals). What The Eternals needed and was lacking until this week, then, was some genuine star power to raise the film s profile. Marvel is getting it in the form of Angelina Jolie, who s now in talks to star in The Eternals. Technically, Jolie s role was not confirmed this week, but the leads are reportedly Ikaris (who s male) and Sersi, so she s probably Sersi. This might also mean Jolie could join a future version of The Avengers, as Sersi was a member of the team for over 60 issues from 1989 to 1994. The Eternals will be directed by Chloé Zhao (The Rider, Songs My Brothers Taught Me) when it starts filming this summer. In the meantime, you can check out this fan art that speculates what Angelina Jolie could look like as Sersi.Fresh Developments1. JOEL COEN GOING SOLO FOR SHAKESPEARE S MACBETH STARRING DENZEL WASHINGTON (Photo by Wilson Webb/Focus Features)Director Joel Coen and his brother Ethan have collaborated on so many movies (dozens) that it s become shorthand to just refer to them as the Coen Brothers, even if their precise duties on each film vary. This week, we learned of the first film that Joel Coen will be directing from his own screenplay, without Ethan writing or producing, and it will be an adaptation of William Shakespeare s MacBeth (A.K.A. The Scottish Play for the superstitious). Denzel Washington will play the title character, and two-time Academy Award winner Frances McDormand (A.K.A. Mrs. Joel Coen) will co-star as Lady MacBeth. It is not yet known if the film will retain the play s medieval Scotland setting or perhaps shift to a more contemporary setting. This MacBeth also comes just a few years after the 2015 adaptation (Certified Fresh at 79%) that starred Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.2. NEW AVENGERS: ENDGAME POSTERS CONFIRM FATES OF SHURI, VALKYRIE, AND OTHERS(Photo by Marvel Studios)There was a lot going on in those final moments of Avengers: Infinity War, but Marvel wasn t able to fit in every character. It s also telling of the scope of these movies now that Marvel Studios was able to release 32 character posters for Avengers: Endgame, and still leave out several fan favorites. The posters were divided into two groups (16 of each): black-and-white posters for (some of) the characters who were dusted (or ashed ) in Avengers: Infinity War, and color posters for characters who survived Thanos snap. The inclusion of a poster for Tessa Thompson s Valkyrie character from Thor: Ragnarok confirms one of the lingering questions some had, since she wasn t seen on the Asgardian spaceship in Avengers: Infinity War (or at all). Likewise, there s also a black-and-white poster for Letitia Wright s Shuri character from Black Panther, confirming that she shared the fate of her brother T Challa (not that he s likely to be gone permanently). Marvel Studios also confirmed this week that Avengers: Endgame will be around three hours long when it s released on April 26.3. CUMBERBATCH, FIRTH, AND STRONG JOIN SAM MENDES WORLD WAR I DRAMA(Photo by JA, Priscilla Grant, Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)We ve known for a while that Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) was planning on directing a drama called 1917 following his decision not to direct another James Bond film after 2015 s Spectre. Details about 1917 have remained sparse, but the title itself makes it pretty clear that it s set during World War I (1917 was the year the United States joined the war, but the focus will be on the British). We now know that the story will center on a single day in the war for two young British soldiers played by George MacKay (Captain Fantastic) and Dean-Charles Chapman (Tommen from Game of Thrones). With filming of 1917 starting on location in England and Scotland on Monday, several more actors were confirmed this week. The cast will include Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, TV s Sherlock), Colin Firth (The King s Speech), Richard Madden (Robb Stark from Game of Thrones), and Mark Strong (Shazam!). There are a few reunions going on here, including for Kingsman: The Secret Service (Colin Firth and Mark Strong), and The Imitation Game (Benedict Cumberbatch and Mark Strong), and Game of Thrones.4. MICHAEL B. JORDAN WON T LOOK A DAY OVER 400 AS METHUSELAH(Photo by Marvel Studios)It was less than three years ago that we first heard about a biblical epic called Methuselah, in which Tom Cruise would play the long-lived figure from the Book of Genesis. The film is still in development at Warner Bros, but it s now set up as a starring vehicle for Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Black Panther), who will also produce. One significant change to Methuselah is that it s no longer described as a biblical epic, but is instead about a 400-year-old man who, over hundreds of years, has accumulated vast intellectual knowledge, from multiple languages to the sciences, as well as survival skills. Methuselah joins Jordan and his production company s sizable slate of film projects along with Just Mercy (1/17/2020), Tom Clancy s Without Remorse (9/18/2020), Journal for Jordan, The Liberators, Red Wolf, Silver Bear, and Wrong Answer.5. TOM HANKS JOINS ELVIS PRESLEY BIOPIC AS COLONEL TOM PARKER (Photo by Sony Pictures)Tom Hanks is on some sort of crazy streak of late playing iconic real-life figures of both the 20th and 21st centuries. In the last six years alone, he’s starred in Captain Phillips, Saving Mr. Banks (as Walt Disney), Bridge of Spies, Sully (as pilot “Sully” Sullenberger), The Post (as Ben Bradlee), and his Mister Rogers movie, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is due out later this year (11/22/2019). Hanks is now in talks for another film in which he will play a 20th century pop culture personality; if the deal goes through, he ll take on a Southern accent again as Colonel Tom Parker, co-starring in the untitled Elvis Presley biopic that director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, Australia) has been developing for several years. Luhrmann reportedly moved on to Tom Hanks after previous talks with Leonardo DiCaprio (his Romeo + Juliet star) didn t work out. Baz Luhrmann has not yet cast his actor to star as Elvis Presley.
2. HALLOWEEN KILLS IN 2020, AND HALLOWEEN ENDS IN 2021 Ryan FujitaniFollowing the 9 million domestic box office of last year s soft reboot of Halloween (Certified Fresh at 79%), Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions quickly confirmed plans for at least one more Halloween sequel. More recently, it was confirmed first that Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning, and that actually it would be two sequels that will be filming back-to-back. This week, Universal and Blumhouse made it official by announcing that the sequels will be titled Halloween Kills (10/16/2020) and Halloween Ends (10/15/2021). Both sequels will have the same director, David Gordon Green, who co-wrote them with actor Danny McBride, who also co-wrote last year s Halloween with Green.3. BEN AFFLECK AND MATT DAMON TO REUNITE FOR RIDLEY SCOTT S THE LAST DUEL (Photo by Sara Cozolino/Everett Collection)Before he directed films like Alien, Blade Runner, and Gladiator, Ridley Scott made his directorial debut in 1977 with The Duellists, about French officers during the Napoleonic Wars engaged in a series of duels in the early 1800s. Things came full circle this week with the news that Scott is now attached to direct The Last Duel, which is set in 14th century France (the distinction here is that The Last Duel concerns a medieval trial-by-combat between knights). The Last Duel will also be a reunion project for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who will co-star and co-write (along with Nicole Holofcener). This week, Damon also signed on to star in an independent drama called Stillwater, which will also be set in France.4. WALKING DEAD SPINOFF MOVIE GETS THEATRICAL RELEASE(Photo by AMC)When Andrew Lincoln s Rick Grimes got on a helicopter last year and flew away from The Walking Dead, it was quickly announced that AMC had plans for a series of spinoff movies about the continuing adventures of Rick Grimes. At San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, the first teaser trailer for a Walking Dead movie debuted, but the biggest surprise had nothing to do with new plot twists. Instead, the surprise was that Universal Pictures has picked up the Walking Dead movie for theatrical distribution (i.e. not just as an AMC movie). The plan is still for three movies starring Andrew Lincoln, with Lincoln expected to spend two months on each movie. Andrew Lincoln also signed on this week to join Naomi Watts in Penguin Bloom, playing Watts husband as their family befriends an injured Australian magpie chick (bird).5. JAVIER BARDEM EXPECTED TO PLAY KING TRITON IN THE LITTLE MERMAID (Photo by ©Warner Bros.)Following the casting earlier this month of Halle Bailey as Ariel in Disney s live action remake of The Little Mermaid, fans quickly began speculating about who might play her father, King Triton. Most fans picked black actors, with Idris Elba being a popular choice, but some also chose Terry Crews. As it turns out, Disney instead went with Academy Award-winning Spanish actor Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Skyfall, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales). In the original animated movie, King Triton does not have his own song (he does have one in the stage musical called The World Above ), so it s probably likely that Bardem won t be singing in the live-action version either.6. BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH TO PORTRAY BRITISH ARTIST LOUIS WAIN(Photo by Jack English/© Weinstein Co.)The Cassius Marcellus Coolidge painting series Dogs Playing Poker is something of an iconic example of American kitsch. Around the same time in England, however, the artist Louis Wain had a similar series of paintings of cats that frequently had Big Eyes (a la Keane), exaggerated toothy smiles, or early examples of psychedelic art. It s crazy stuff, and now Benedict Cumberbatch (whose Doctor Strange also dabbled in psychedelia) is signed to star in the biopic Louis Wain for Amazon Studios. Cumberbatch s co-stars will include Claire Foy, Toby Jones, and Andrea Riseborough.7. HOPEFULLY JENNIFER LAWRENCE WON T GET STITCHES AS THE MOB GIRL(Photo by 20th Century Fox)Now that Dark Phoenix (Rotten at 23%) is done and over with, Jennifer Lawrence s time in the X-Men franchise is officially done, leaving her with no ongoing franchise (since The Hunger Games ended in 2015, and last year s Red Sparrow was a non-starter). It may well be that Lawrence will soon find another, but for now, she appears to be aiming for smaller movies. With that in mind, Jennifer Lawrence is now attached to star in Mob Girl, based on Teresa Carpenter s novel which was itself based on the true story of 1970s and 1980s mob informant Arlyne Weiss-Brickman. Mob Girl will reportedly depict how Weiss-Brickman grew up around wise guys, including running errands for them, but decided to cooperate with the FBI after a loan shark threatened to harm her teenage daughter. (Jennifer Lawrence is only 28 years old, so her daughter may be younger in this movie version.)8. CHRIS ROCK S SAW SPINOFF BUMPED UP FIVE MONTHS TO BE A BIG SUMMER RELEASE (Photo by Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images)One factor (besides, you know, all the torture) that has united all movies in the Saw franchise to date has been the release date, which has always been between October 23rd (Saw VI) and October 29th (Saw and Saw 3D). So, when Chris Rock announced that he was producing and starring in a Saw spinoff (sometimes called The Organ Donor online), the presumed release date was in October of 2020. Perhaps tying into the film s premise as a Saw spinoff and not a Saw movie exactly, Lionsgate this week bumped up Chris Rock s film to a release date of May 15, 2020 (against the Scooby-Doo reboot Scoob). Rock will star in the film as a police detective investigating a series of gruesome crimes, with Samuel L. Jackson also on board to play Rock s character s father.9. JENNIFER LOPEZ MAY DIRECT (HERSELF IN) THE GODMOTHER (Photo by Peter Iovino/©CBS Films)The ensemble stripper crime comedy Hustlers (9/13/2019) is now less than two months away, but one of its stars, Jennifer Lopez, is already preparing for new films in 2020 and beyond. Following flops like UglyDolls, Poms, and Best of Enemies, STX Entertainment is reportedly looking for big stars for their next moves, and one of them is going to be Jennifer Lopez. Jenny from the Block is now producing and will star in a drug lord drama called The Godmother for STXfilms. Lopez may also make her directorial debut with the film, in which she plays real life Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco, who was (real life spoiler warning) shot and killed in 2012 at the age of 69 (Jennifer Lopez is only 50). Lopez s next film after Hustlers will be the romantic comedy Marry Me, costarring Owen Wilson. This week, the Marry Me cast expanded as Lopez and Wilson will now be joined by Sarah Silverman and British actor John Bradley, who has a lot more time on his hands now that his run as Samwell Tarly on HBO s Game of Thrones is done.Like this?

But we doubt Jim Carrey looks back on the 1988 comedy with embarassment, and probably not his co-stars Jeff Goldblum, Damon Wayans, and Geena Davis either. It s silly, it s Fresh, and it helped Carrey land In Living Color. And that show helped make the man who would talk out of his ass on the big screen, to the delight of millions. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective made over 0 million, and that was the lowest-grossing of Carrey s comedies that year, behind Dumb Dumber and The Mask.After that breakout in 1994, Carrey was locked and loaded to be the manic centerpiece of 1995 s summer blockbuster event: Playing the Riddler in Batman Forever. The comic book caper was the highest-grossing movie of the year the same couldn t be said about 1996 s The Cable Guy, Carrey s first box office bomb. Fret not: He sprung back in 1997 with Liar Liar, and The Truman Show in 1998.Part of Carrey s early enduring quality was a subtle sensitivity hiding beneath the flailing limbs and facial contortions, and the sudden pathos that could erupt from his oddball characters. Carrey began displaying this knack for drama more nakedly in serious projects like Man on the Moon, where he transformed into his comedy idol Andy Kaufman, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the most memorably melancholic romance of recent decades. Of course, Carrey continued to crowd-please with slapstick like Fun With Dick and Jane, Bruce Almighty, Dr. Seuss How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Yes Man.After a quiet decade pursuing personal hobbies and middling movie work, Carrey spin-dashed into the 2020s with Sonic the Hedgehog, playing iconic villain Dr. Robotnik (see where it landed on the video game movies list). Today, though, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Cable Guy, which rebounded from its lowly box office performance to become a cult classic. See where it ranks in his filmography as we rank Jim Carrey movies by Tomatometer!
On March 2, 1984, the world was blessed by the hilarious mocku-rockumentary This Is Spinal Tap (Certified Fresh at 95%). Utilizing largely improvisational dialogue, director Rob Reiner and writers and cast members Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, and Michael McKean created a brilliant documentary about one of the world’s worst fake rock bands.While underappreciated at first (many early viewers thought the documentary was real and complained that it “wasn’t about a popular band like Led Zeppelin”), the film has gone on to become a comedy cult classic. Now, on its 35th anniversary, we look back on what makes This Is Spinal Tap one of the greatest and most influential music films, comedies, and mockumentaries of all time.It Was GroundbreakingMockumentaries have existed in some form before This Is Spinal Tap; The Beatles’ 1964 classic A Hard Day’s Night (98%) was filmed in a mockumentary style, and Woody Allen’s Zelig (100%) marked a significant step forward towards realism in the genre. But, it wasn’t until This Is Spinal Tap in 1984 that the genre was perfected.While not a huge box office hit, This Is Spinal Tap was critically acclaimed, landing on multiple Best of 1984 lists, and it boasts a Certified Fresh 96% on Rotten Tomatoes. Its status as a genre-defining piece of art has only solidified all the more in the decades since its release.The success of This Is Spinal Tap led to the celebrated filmmaking career of writer, director, and Spinal Tap lead guitarist Christopher Guest. With the same improvisational style and much of the same cast, Guest has since written and directed Certified Fresh mockumentaries like Waiting For Guffman, Best In Show, and A Mighty Wind.But the influence and acclaim extends far beyond the members of the band.(Photo by Universal Pictures)In recent years, we have seen an uptick in both the quality and the prevalence of mockumentary content. Sacha Baron Cohen s Borat was a cultural phenomenon that made nearly 0 million, scored a Certified Fresh 91% on the Tomatometer, and apparently will be quoted until the end of time; The Lonely Island s Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping took This Is Spinal Tap from 80s rock into the Bieber-fied 21st century; and Taika Waititi s What We Do In The Shadows was a quirky Sundance hit that crossed over to the mainstream with critical acclaim and spawned a television spinoff, set to premiere later this month.These three films and a number of popular current mockumentary TV programs like Documentary Now! (94%) and American Vandal (98%) all owe a debt to This Is Spinal Tap for its influence on comedy. Sitcoms like The Office or Parks Recreation might never have been as successful without the groundwork laid by Spinal Tap. And if there were no Office or American Vandal, what would the millions of millennials mainline on Netflix before bed? Would they have no reason to subscribe? And if not, would Netflix streaming ever have taken off the way it did? And if there’s no streaming content, would we all still be getting our DVDs through the mail?Now, we re not saying that This Is Spinal Tap is the reason that Roma exists, but it’s definitely one of the reasons that Best In Show, Borat, and American Vandal all exist.Real Rock Stars Understand It(Photo by Sony Pictures Classics courtesy Everett Collection)It might come as a surprise, but despite the less than stellar picture of rock-and-rollers that This Is Spinal Tap paints, many of the bands and musicians it lampoons have seen it and feel strongly about it.Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry said of the film, “When we watched Spinal Tap, my wife and I saw it, and we fell on the floor. It was great. Every bit is brilliant as it was supposed to be. So good.” On the other hand, frontman Steven Tyler didn’t find it so funny, saying, “That movie bummed me out, because I thought, ‘How dare they? That’s all real, and they’re mocking it.’”In the documentary It Might Get Loud, U2 guitarist The Edge said, “It s so hard to keep things fresh, and not to become a parody of yourself. And if you ve ever seen that movie Spinal Tap, you will know how easy it is to parody what we all do. The first time I ever saw it, I didn t laugh. I wept. I wept because I recognized so much and so many of those scenes.”The phrase “Spinal Tap Moment” has even entered the rock lexicon.It Made Rob Reiner into a Director(Photo by Columbia Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)Prior to directing This Is Spinal Tap, Rob Reiner was best known as Michael Stivic, the meathead son-in-law of Archie Bunker in the hit sitcom All In The Family. While he played this role to great s
