亚博网站官网登录采用百度引擎3（Baidu 2）For All Mankind introduced a devastating tragedy with its eighth episode, “Rupture.” It was not the first of the freshman Apple TV+ series – and surely won’t be the last.Spoiler Alert: The following contains plot points from For All Mankind season 1, episode 8. The alternate-reality sci-fi series poses the question: “What might have happened if Russia had won the race to the moon?” It stars Joel Kinnaman as NASA astronaut Edward Baldwin and Shantel VanSanten as his homemaker wife Karen Baldwin. An accident strands Ed on the moon, worrying Karen to distraction and leaving his preteen son Shane (Tait Blum) lonely, eager for attention, and rebellious. In one defiant act, Shane disobeys his mother, who has grounded him, and takes off on his bike to play in a basketball game. Karen later finds out that Shane was hit by a car during that ride and must deal with the life-threatening injury without her husband.The series also stars Michael Dorman as Gordo Stevens, Sarah Jones as Tracy Stevens, Wrenn Schmidt as Margo Madison, Jodi Balfour as Ellen Waverly, Krys Marshall as Danielle Poole, Sonya Walger as Molly Cobb, Chris Bauer as Deke Slayton, Arturo Del Puerto as Octavio Rosales, and Olivia Trujillo as Aleida Rosales.The death of a child is a particularly heartrending moment in a TV show, so we caught up with series co-creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Battlestar Galactica) to hear about Shane’s death and how it folds into his plans for series, which has two more episodes left in its first season, starting with Friday’s “Dangerous Liaisons.”(Photo by Apple TV+)Debbie Day for Rotten Tomatoes: “Rupture” was a very emotional episode, and it occurred to me that in your work, you feature extraordinary people in ordinary circumstances. It flips that screenwriting convention – “an ordinary person in extraordinary circumstances” – on its head.Ron Moore: Ed Baldwin is doing this extraordinary thing … He s on the moon and he s by himself and he s in this situation and the Soviets are out there and he has no one else to deal with. And what would be the consequences of something very common a car accident killing his son back on Earth, and how that would rock his world In that sense, we were just interested in the human quality of it, that he s on another planet or he s on a moon, he s 200,000 miles away from home, and yet this very pedestrian accident happens and that it would devastate him. And that the entire sort of massive team would have to come together to figure out what to do, and do they tell him and do they not? We just really liked the idea that at the heart of it was something that just happens to people every day, that it s such an everyday occurrence. And yet to put it in this extraordinary context would be kind of unique and interesting.I like that the flight director comes up with the brilliant idea of asking his wife whether or not they should tell him.Moore: Yeah. It says something about the time, and it said something also I think even about our own kind of bias in terms of just watching it. Because you kind of assume all these official people should make that call and you kind of forget the human component of, Well what about his wife or his spouse? What about his family? How did they feel about it? Cause they re the ones going through the tragedy. And then it s not just about official NASA policy, it s about these people. And then there s an underlying current of there were three men standing in that office looking at Margo and not one of the three of them even occurred to them to talk to the wife first. And that was sort of an interesting comment on gender and roles at that time and notions that persist today as well.(Photo by Apple TV+)Margo, for me, is a really interesting character. Maybe I just identify with her being kind of a workaholic, but she s a character out of time in the opportunities that she s made for herself in that environment. And I was just wondering if you could talk a little bit about building those female characters that flout the conventions of that period?Moore: It goes back to the original concept of the show, which was, We re going to do an alternate history, and we re going to change things. And we re going to say that by losing the race to the moon, ironically good things happen to the United States and the world, and let s make it not just technological progress, let s make it societal change and cultural change and what does that mean? And he said, All right, let s tell the story of this young woman that you meet as a version of Wernher von Braun, and let s see her climb the ladder in a way that wasn t possible in that era. Who would that be? What would the qualities that you would need to thrive in the 1960s and into the ’70s and make that kind of climb? And especially if she was tutored by someone like Wernher von Braun. And we kind of said, well, She would have to literally be a workaholic. Margo said, I think in episode 8 says, You ve got to be better than the boys in order to advance the society at the time. You kind of start with that premise and then you carve out the particular character and you just say, “Who is Margo and where she s from and what are her values and what are the things that matter to her?” And this program is very important to Margo and she invests a lot of herself and self-worth into the success or failure of the space program. In her opening scene, she s sleeping in her office, and she s not just crashing on the couch; she has built an entire structure in that office that allows her to sleep. Mirrors that turn into plaques, and she s got all her things figured out in a way that they vanish and no one even knows.And she s given a lot of thought and time and energy to creating that structure for herself. And that was just an interesting comment to sort of, that s how we introduce her. And it kind of says almost everything you need to know about Margo in season 1. That s sort of where it all began.(Photo by Apple TV+)There are many extraordinary female characters in the show. Even the journey that Karen Baldwin takes. At the beginning, she embodies that ’50s/’60s housewife model. Can you talk about what showing her path means when you ve got all these extraordinary, accomplished women around her?Moore: It was an interesting question we talked about a lot in the room. If you take the stereotypical astronaut wife that we ve come to know, right? And books and television, even the magazine articles — Time certainly painted a portrait of who that person was. And now we re going to say, The world changes radically and it s going down this other path, and people like Tracy Stevens are going to become astronauts, and Margo Madison is going to ascend the ranks. OK, what happens to Karen Baldwin? What would she do and what does she hang on to? And you know, how was she forced to change? And you ll see as we get into the last couple of episodes how the death of Shane really does dynamite that whole world. At first, she was just trying to hold on to what she knew back when at the very beginning Ed’s career’s in trouble, because of what he said to the magazine.And then Karen clicks into Karen-planning-mode. Well then, you re going to go back to the Navy and this and this and this and this, because that s how Karen copes and deals with things. Then when her friend Tracy enters the program, that kind of is the fi

All Rights Reserved.)Another week, another opportunity to examine the effect of Premier Access on a same-day streaming-and-theatrical release. Standards have been set this summer by Disney, Universal, and Paramount while Warner Brothers has given the term front-loaded further meaning showing the effects of those that choose a trip to their couches for HBO Max over a trip to theaters. Disney’s flirtation with their home accessibility for an additional price on their streaming service Disney+ continued this weekend. We don’t know the full extent of their couch success aside from a couple of lofty debuts, so what can we glean from their box office numbers this weekend?King of the Crop: Smooth Waters for Jungle Cruise, But Can It Keep Chugging Along?Disney certainly got one headline they were hoping for this weekend. Jungle Cruise’s no. 1 opening was not a shocker, but getting to .2 million put it ahead of Space Jam: A New Legacy’s start of million. That number is also good enough for the fourth-best opening of the pandemic, better than even Godzilla vs. Kong’s .6 million first weekend (and that film had a two-day head start as well that helped its long-term prospects of eventually reaching 0 million). Jungle Cruise faces an uphill river going forward just based on the two biggest obstacles impeding nine-digit totals – family-oriented titles struggle to get there right now and day-and-date streaming options.Last week, Space Jam: A New Legacy, streaming for those with an HBO Max subscription, fell 69.1% in its second weekend and looks to still top out around million total. The week before, Disney’s Black Widow, available for .99 via Premier Access on Disney+, fell 67.8%. As the front-loaded grosses go up, the subsequent drops go higher as well. Second viewings in theaters are likely way down in this atmosphere and any good word-of-mouth may bring people more to the couch than the lounge seat in the theater. Disney may choose to point to Cruella (also a Premier Access title) having the best multiple (3.94) for a film opening to over million, but it is certainly an outlier. Only A Quiet Place Part II and Godzilla vs. Kong have made more than three times their opening weekend in that group of movies to open with more than million. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is the only other title to get over 2.5x its start.Then again, it s debatable if Jungle Cruise getting to 0 million without some serious international and streaming numbers is a victory for a film budgeted at 0 million. F9 is the only film right now that has made enough theatrical revenue to cover that price tag, grossing over 1 million worldwide. No other film has crossed half-a-billion since 2019. Jungle Cruise reportedly grossed another .6 million internationally and “over million” from its Premier Access – or half of what Black Widow made in its debut. At present, Disney is not going to be releasing Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings to Premier Access on September 3 – it will be available exclusively in theaters.Fresh Surprise: A24 Scores Some Big Personal Bests With The Green KnightA24 had a momentous weekend. For just the fifth time in its eight-year history, the indie darling opened a film in over 2,000 theaters. And it made some headlines. David Lowery’s The Green Knight – one of the best-reviewed wide releases of the year, Certified Fresh at 90% on the Tomatometer – opened to .7 million. While that may not seem like a big chunk of change, let’s look a little closer. That is higher than both Midsommar and It Comes At Night, making it the third-highest opening in A24 s history. This is also the first time a film of theirs ranked as high as second place on the weekend box office chart. Even if the estimates fall and Old barely bests it, A24 has never had a third place finish either; both The Witch and Hereditary opened in fourth in their respective weekends in 2016 and 2018. Surely the film was helped by a lackluster marketplace and big drops from last week’s films. Who knows how those grosses would have been altered (or boosted overall at home) with a streaming option, but the studio which has practically become its own brand at this point got a win this weekend by betting on cinephiles desire to see a touted masterpiece and its scope on a big screen.Rotten Returns: A Mixed Story for Focus Features Matt Damon Thriller Stillwater(Photo by Jessica Forde / Focus Features)The numbers for director Tom McCarthy and Matt Damon’s American-abroad thriller Stillwater are not great. That said, they look good for Focus Features given their output since theaters began opening up. Instead of instituting a move to increase volume on their titles with instant streaming access, the studio has taken a full-steam-ahead theatrical approach to their releases going back to last September. The result has been a top opening weekend for Let Him Go ( million), a top final gross by Come Play (.4 million) – both from 2020 – and of their seven releases in 2021 so far, not one of them have matched either of those 2020 markers.Their eighth release of the year, Stillwater, did manage to break their opening ceiling with .1 million, giving it the likely odds to outgross Come Play as well. It has already bested Focus’s top release of 2021 in Boogie (.17 million). Note, however, that Stillwater s per-theater-average of ,000 is less than that for the opening weekend of their Anthony Bourdain documentary, Roadrunner (,145), and that is just their fourth film since the pandemic to have a PTA over ,000.What kind of revenue are they missing out on by not offering these films at home for a price tag? When you consider the films actually making theatrical revenue during the 2021 period of the pandemic, the only titles geared towards adults that are not a sequel, a prequel, or a reboot and which have grossed over million are Old, In the Heights, Wrath of Man, and Nobody. And only Old is cracking million. Pre-Stillwater’s opening, Focus’s seven films this year have grossed a total of less than million. Stillwater will finally get them over million for the year.The Top 10 And Beyond: Old Marks Biggest Second-Weekend Drop for M. Night Shyamalan Since The Happening(Photo by Phobymo /© Universal Pictures )Last week’s no. 1 film, Old, fell back to third place this weekend with just .7 million. The 60.3% fall is the worst drop for M. Night Shyamalan since The Happening fell 65.7% after a .5 million opening in 2008. When looking at the drops of 15 historical July openers that began between .5 million and .7 million, there are two standouts: Old now joins the ranks of Catwoman (-61.5%) and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (-62.6%) in their second weekends. Those films finished with .2 million and .1 million, respectively, and it appears Old is headed into the same territory. If so, it could finish with less than Shyamalan s Lady in the Water’s .2 million in 2006.Marvel’s Black Widow, meanwhile, is now the subject of a potential precedent-setting lawsuit by star Scarlett Johansson over diminished profits stemming from its hybrid release in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access. While we have not heard anything about the streaming numbers beyond its million debut on the service, its theatrical total rose to over 7 million this weekend. That puts it at around the totals of Men In Black II and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs after 24 days, though it made around .5 million-to- million less than both of those films on its fourth weekend. The best hope for Black Widow is that the film can stretch to get into the 0 million range, which is where both those films ended up, but it is still likely headed to between 0 million-0 million as suggested last week. Still, unless James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad can break the HBO Max ceiling, Black Widow should end up being the domestic victor of the summer.(Photo by Ed Araquel/Paramount Pictures)Elsewhere, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins fell 70% from last week to just million. That’s the worst drop for a film exclusively in theaters this year and now ranks amongst the 10 worst drops for a film opening between million and million. We’re talking out of over 700 films, too: Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience (-77.40%), The Photograph (-77.10%), The Bye Bye Man (-74.60%), Land of the Dead (-73.40%), Endless Love (2014) (-70.20%), Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (70.0%), Skyline (-69.50%), The Grudge (2020) (-69.20%), Elektra (-69.00%), Child s Play (2019) (-68.60%).Though the studio behind Snake Eyes is citing concerns over the Delta variant spreading among the unvaccinated for its recent decision to pull Clifford the Big Red Dog from its September 17 release, could it be the action flick s underperformance – as well as the general underperformance of family titles – that spooked them? The film is still scheduled to premiere at next month’s Toronto Film Festival and Paramount’s Paw Patrol is still on the schedule for August 20. Could Paramount+ or a move to Amazon be on the table next for either of them?Finally, Sony Classics’ Nine Days had one of the best limited launches of the year earning ,455 in just four theaters for a ,614 per-screen-average. The only limited releases to start better were the Vietnamese film, Bo Gia, which made 0,000 in 20 theaters (,500 PTA) and Neon’s Ailey making ,091 in two theaters (,546 PTA).On The Vine: Acclaimed The Suicide Squad Puts Theatrical/HBO Max Release Strategy to the Test One of the last attempts for a potential blockbuster of the summer arrives with James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. If Warner Brothers is feeling confident, they have reason: Early reviews have the movie already Certified Fresh at 96% on the Tomatometer (which is a big jump from the Rotten 26% Tomatometer score for the original). But can it overcome people’s desire to stay at home and watch it on HBO Max?

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) 67% Fans of the Fast Furious franchise are likely aware of the off-screen feud between stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, but Universal found a way to have its cake and eat it, too. Though Johnson won t appear in the forthcoming Fast Furious 9, he and former series villain Jason Statham headline this week s Hobbs Shaw, the first spinoff of the franchise, which hopes to deliver the same kinds of high-octane thrills that have characterized the past few films. Vanessa Kirby joins the gang as a rogue MI6 agent on the run from a genetically cyber-enhanced would-be supervillain in the form of Idris Elba, and it s up to Johnson s Luke Hobbs and Statham s Deckard Shaw to put their differences aside in order to save the agent and neutralize the threat. It s pretty standard stuff, as far as globetrotting action blockbusters go, but critics say Hobbs Shaw benefits from the easy chemistry between its leads, who play off each other with fairly effective comedic timing, and a strong turn from Kirby, who gets plenty of her own chances to shine. All that said, the film is patently ridiculous, and some critics found elements of it a bit too far over-the-top, even for a Fast Furious movie. But when you come to one of these, you know what you re in for, and Hobbs Shaw more or less delivers exactly that.

3.61.3 9月喜迎Those in the industry keeping an eye on the progress of Avengers: Endgame in its hunt to take down the global box record set by Avatar are probably some combination of bored, tired, and frustrated. It must feel like watching a sporting event with the most incredible offensive performance in the first half and a slow petering out in the second. Nevertheless, it has seemed inevitable for weeks now that Disney and Marvel would need to take alternative routes if they were indeed dead-set on achieving that ultimate goal: Beating Avatar’s global haul of ,787,965,087 (.79 billion). As of Tuesday, Endgame is currently at ,744,012,261 (.74 billion), or ,952,826 million behind.Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced on Tuesday that Avengers: Endgame’s theatrical run is far from finished. The Marvel behemoth is taking a major step to snatch up more millions in the box office race: Come next week there will be “a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises” for those who make it out to see Endgame again. But unlike those who bought tickets to Meet Joe Black back in 1998 to get their first whiff of The Phantom Menace trailer, fans will have to wait through the three-hour film to get their new kernels during the end credits.(Photo by © Twentieth Century Fox)Will this be enough to bring Avengers: Endgame over the finish line? The quick answer is probably no, but it is worth exploring its chances – beginning with its path to the present. When Endgame opened on April 25 with Thursday night previews, it grossed 7.1 million through Sunday night. That was .4 million more than Star Wars: The Force Awakens made in December 2015. Despite such an incredible head start, it would still end up well short of Awakens’ domestic record of 6.6 million; Endgame was at 1.7 million on Tuesday, good enough for second all-time at the domestic box office.AVENGERS: ENDGAME (Weekends)Weekend #2 7,383,211 (#2 second weekend all-time)Weekend #3 ,299,904 (#4 third weekend all-time)Weekend #4 ,973,505 (#5 fourth weekend all-time)Weekend #5 ,200,742 (#13 fifth weekend all-time)Weekend #6 ,037,491 (#77 sixth weekend all-time)Weekend #7 ,870,963 (#146 seventh weekend all-time)Weekend #8 ,725,855 (#134 eighth weekend all-time)Some of those later numbers get skewed in the weeds of platform releases and award chasers getting later wide launches, but that is still quite the drop from weekend five to six. Three new releases this week will likely push Endgame out of the top 10 temporarily, but the new launch with extra footage may help it reclaim the slot it has held for eight weeks. (Avatar spent 14 straight weeks in the top 10; The Force Awakens spent 10.)The most successful re-releases in the past have been those that have offered new experiences. The special editions of the original Star Wars trilogy in 1997 included renewed special effects as well as excised and new footage that resulted in grosses of 8.2 million (Star Wars), .5 million (The Empire Strikes Back), and .4 million (Return of the Jedi). Disney had similar successes with its 3D conversions of The Lion King (.2 million), Beauty and the Beast (.6 million), Finding Nemo (.1 million), and Monsters, Inc. ( million). 3D re-issues of Titanic (.8 million), Jurassic Park (.3 million), and even The Phantom Menace (.4 million) did solid numbers.These numbers are precisely in the wheelhouse of what Endgame is chasing since, as of Tuesday, it was .95 million behind Avatar’s global record. However, these films were events not just for their extras but because for a number of people they offered an opportunity to see these films for the first time on the big screen. The earliest re-release amongst all those films mentioned was Monsters, Inc., which came just 11 years after its first run. Avengers: Endgame would be 10 weeks – so it might not even technically be a “re-release.”What does Endgame have going in its favor? Recent history for starters. Black Panther was 11 weeks and 1 million into its run when it jumped back into the top five, dropping just 4% from the week prior. A week before Endgame’s release, Captain Marvel rose 5.7% from the week prior, jumping from sixth to fourth and having the 17th best seventh weekend ever. Then, on Endgame’s record-breaking weekend, Captain Marvel was the number 2 film in the country on its eighth week of release, dropping just 8.7% for the 12th best eighth weekend ever. The Endgame re-issue release would come four days before the next chapter in the MCU, Spider-Man: Far From Home, opens. That film could see the same kind of post-Avengers bump that propelled Iron Man 3 to over 0 million.(Photo by © Sony Pictures)Will a pre-Spider-Man launch in the film’s 10th week of release be enough though? Black Panther made a little over million from weekend 10 on. Captain Marvel made a little more than million. We could just as easily say that Endgame is only .2 million away from the true record as that would discount Avatar getting a re-release as a “Special Edition” in 812 theaters on Aug. 27, 2010, just a few weeks before its first run finished with 9.7 million. Therein lies the potential rub though.How much business does Endgame lose this weekend with Toy Story 4 seeking to break its own records – let alone with people now knowing if they wait just another week they could pay the same amount and see the new additions? Optimistically, another to million this weekend worldwide, and let’s double that with the reissue the week after; Endgame would still need another to million going forward. Marvel and Disney could certainly try another re-release around awards time, as there will certainly be some outside chatter for a legacy reward. But that is likely small peanuts, too. Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk made just .69 million in its awards season re-release in December 2017.Maybe Avengers: Endgame will need another decade to pass Avatar. When the dust is settled and a new generation of Marvel lovers are finishing up the latest phase of the MCU and discovering the tales of the original group that their parents loved and supported, perhaps an anniversary re-issue is announced and the final few bucks it needs for the record will be handed over for one last ticket. Unless Avatar 2, 3, 4, or 5 has already moved the record forward.Like this? Subscribe to our newsletter and get more features, news, and guides in your inbox every week.

Barely one month after announcing the project, Beyoncé has dropped her latest visual album, titled Black Is King, on the streaming service Disney+. The surprise new release stems from her involvement with last year’s live-action reimagining of The Lion King and is a complimentary work to her 2019 record The Lion King: The Gift. The first reviews of the musical film, which wasn’t screened early for critics, are unanimously positive, recognizing its visual craftsmanship, timeliness, and how it progresses both its material and Beyoncé s own career as an artist.Here’s what critics are saying about Beyoncé s Black Is King:How does this project fit into Beyoncé’s artistic reign?Beyoncé, the master of the visual album, just keeps getting better with each release. Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen, Sydney Morning HeraldThe greatest success of Black Is King, with all its ambitions, purposeful revelations and nods by Beyoncé, may be the conformation of its creator and star as the cultural Queen of our time. Dominic Patten, Deadline[It] is a particularly genius sleight of hand only she could pull off. Jude Dry, IndieWireIt’s a remarkable addition to the pop world and tribute to her artistry. Anne Brodie, What She SaidThe product feels like a natural progression in her evolution as an artist… and truly, the outfits are just fabulous — possibly her best to date. Anna Menta, DeciderBlack Is King doesn’t exactly stand with the best of her previous work — it’s a pleasure but not a landmark — but the Queen Bey goes through it with her head up and her crown intact. Steve Pond, The Wrap(Photo by Disney+)Is it only for Beyoncé fans?With appearances from Jay-Z, Kelly Rowland, Pharrell and Naomi Campbell, this star-studded film has something for everyone. Chanté Joseph, GuardianThe Queen Bey orchestrated visual album is… well, rather excellent and exciting on various fronts. Dominic Patten, DeadlineHow does it honor the legacy of The Lion King?It bears little resemblance to the Disney film. Anna Menta, DeciderBeyoncé, who lent her voice to Nala in said remake, is here to offer a corrective… a bold and unique offering that’s brimming with Black pride. Amon Warmann, Empire MagazineThe Lion King always was and should have been an African-told story. And while Beyoncé’s lens is certainly an American one, her inclusion of Nigerian, Ghanaian, and Cameroonian collaborators drives home this necessity. Jude Dry, IndieWireThe ties to The Lion King occasionally ground the story in that familiar coming-of-age story, but they just as often feel beside the point. Steve Pond, The WrapThough some sections incorporating dialogue feel a little clunky, the parallel generally works well. Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen, Sydney Morning HeraldIf the public is tiring of Disney doggedly remaking all of its old animations in live action format, finally some original content is coming out of the project as well. David Smyth, London Evening Standard(Photo by Disney+)What else is Black Is King reminiscent of?Similar in stature and design to Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker film from 1988, Black Is King is clearly structured to be an event release in this time of essentially endless options. Dominic Patten, DeadlineAt times, it feels like Terence Malick’s Tree of Life meets Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther. Jeremy Helligar, VarietyHow are the visuals of this visual album?Black Is King is a visual masterpiece. It’s almost overwhelming. Anna Menta, DeciderIf there is one thing to be said about Black Is King, it’s that it is visually stunning — from beginning to end. The whole thing. Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyEach scene somehow more spectacular than its predecessor, Black Is King is a feast for the eyes. Amon Warmann, Empire MagazineIt’s a sumptuous visual feast, from detailed costuming to choreography. Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen, Sydney Morning HeraldBlack Is King is a visual feast; it provides several slow-panning scenes of stillness where we absorb the striking beauty and duality of bright colors against deep brown tones. Chanté Joseph, GuardianThis visual feast… finds its moments of glory in the strength of its images, which are more arresting than the story or the subtext. Steve Pond, The Wrap(Photo by Disney+)Who else deserves recognition for the artistry on display?Beyoncé’s fashion is next-level throughout Black Is King… Shout-out to costume designer Zerina Akers for making Bey look fierce, flawless and Afro-fabulous. Chuck Arnold, New York PostEvery single outfit that Beyoncé wears is just absolutely beautiful. Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyThe real star of the visual film, however, is the raw, untapped talent from performers around the world showcasing their rich tradition and culture, history and lineage. Cydney Henderson, USA TodayWhat’s the best musical number?When supermodel Naomi Campbell, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, and Beyoncé’s fellow former Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland pop up during Brown Skin Girl, a tribute to Black women, it feels transcendent. Jeremy Helligar, Variety Brown Skin Girl is especially moving, showing Beyoncé, Rowland and Blue Ivy together in a strong visual affirmation of generational black womanhood. Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen, Sydney Morning HeraldWill Black Is King move you?I’ll admit, I got emotional when Beyoncé and former Destiny Child’s member Kelly Rowland were singing praises to each other. Anna Menta, DeciderIt is impossible to watch the emotive story unfold, accompanied by Warsan Shire’s poetry, Yrsa Daley-Ward’s writing and warm images of west Africa, without feeling emotional. Chanté Joseph, Guardian(Photo by Disney+)Are there any imperfections?The uneven music of the original soundtrack, though enhanced by the visual accompaniment, can still be hit or miss. Jeremy Helligar, VarietyThere is one part that I would totally skip if I were to watch it again. The celestial stuff… For me, it felt a little weird and out of place. Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyIt’s mildly disappointing that more inspiration isn’t drawn from East Africa given that’s where The Lion King is set. Amon Warmann, Empire MagazineHow important is Black Is King to young Black people in particular?Black Is King, if nothing else, will perhaps inspire them to learn about the history of their race and the ways in which it has shaped the world. Jeremy Helligar, VarietyThere’s an urgency in the way that Beyoncé is addressing the black kings, as if she feels like she’s running out of time. Anna Menta, DeciderBlack Is King is both her gift and her hope for humanity. Jude Dry, IndieWireRyan FujitaniIs this another masterpiece for our time?Black Is King [is] vital to the current conversation in a way that no one could have foreseen, but is most welcome. Amon Warmann, Empire MagazineHer visual album has taken on new meaning following the reemergence of the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight against police brutality and racism.

But, like so many other movie projects this year, like Aaron Sorkin’s Trial of the Chicago 7, which just debuted on Netflix after an abandoned theatrical release, streaming is riding in to save the day for viewers.Variety reports that, with movie theater business yet to rebound during the pandemic, Paramount has made a deal to release the sequel on Amazon instead. It will premiere on Amazon on Dec. 18.Coming 2 America finds Murphy’s Prince Akeem, who married his American love Lisa (Shari Headley) in the original 1988 comedy classic, set to become the new king of his native Zamunda just as he finds out he has a son he knew nothing about in America. With his father (James Earl Jones) hoping that the grandson will be made a prince, Akeem returns to America to unite with his son.Arsenio Hall also returns in the sequel, as Akeem’s best friend, Semmi, as does John Amos as Lisa’s father Cleo.

Benett/Dave Benett/Getty Images for Dunhill)Jamie Dornan is out of the title role in Peacock’s upcoming podcast-inspired drama Dr. Death, and The Affair/Dawson’s Creek/Fringe/Little Fires Everywhere alum Joshua Jackson has signed on as the new series lead.Based on the podcast of the same name, the series is the fact-based story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch, a well-respected young member of the Dallas medical community as a neurosurgeon. But just as his career really began to take off, his patients, ones going into the operating room for fairly routine procedures, began leaving permanently harmed … or worse. Two fellow surgeons – to be played by Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater – began to suspect Duntsch of some very sick behavior, and set out to stop him from continuing to perform surgeries. Unfortunately, they found out that the patients who needed this protection might be the last ones to get it.Dornan had to drop out of the project because of pandemic-related rescheduling, as did Stephen Frears, who was set to direct the first two episodes. Maggie Kiley (Dirty John and Riverdale) will replace him, meaning there will be an all-female directing lineup for the limited series.NEW TRAILERS: HBO Unleashes His Dark Materials Season 2 First LookThe next installment of HBO s adaptation of Philip Pullman s acclaimed fantasy novel trilogy premieres November 16, 2020.
