Fresh off their expected Best International Feature nomination and the unexpected but well-deserved Best Director nomination for director Thomas Vinterberg at the Academy Awards, Another Round is back on our list this week as our spotlight pick. We re offering a subtle reminder for those who have yet to watch the dark comedy that will leave you smiling drunkenly through your tears. Mads Mikkelsen turns in a hilarious and tragic performance in what Lewis Knight of the Daily Mirror calls “a riotous and thoughtful study of alcohol consumption that balances comedy and character study, anchored by a versatile lead performance from a top-form Mads Mikkelsen.” We recently sat down with Vinterberg to talk about the film, the drunken boot camp they held, and the incredible dancing scene.Jacqueline Coley for Rotten Tomatoes: Mads is just incredible in the film. Can you talk about casting him and how he signed on?Thomas Vinterberg: Mads and I first talked about the idea in 2013. Back then, it was intended to be a tribute to alcohol, but the story wasn’t really formed yet. Mads was intrigued. He was a part of this film from the beginning. In fact, I had those four actors in mind since the early stages of writing. I tend to like that way of working, where I write my scripts for specific actors. It has become a bit more difficult because they’ve gotten rich and more famous, and now want to read a script before they attach. But in this case, actually, Mads and the three others all attached very early in the process, without a script. Their characters were called their respective names right up until the shooting draft.How do you direct people to be drunk? Is there an audition process? Do you need to know about their drinking history prior to signing on?Vinterberg: These four actors are all friends of mine. I’ve known them for years, and we’ve had drinks on various occasions. It’s really difficult for actors to play drunk and do it convincingly, especially capturing the nuanced changes in manner and physicality that accompanies their characters’ escalating inebriation over the course of the film. Prior to the shoot, we watched a lot of YouTube videos of drunk people, and we did some alcohol rehearsals, like a booze boot camp, or whatever you want to call it, in order to figure out the specific behavior of these specific actors at these specific levels of intake. We filmed it, and we had fun with it, but it was also a lot of hard work. As in most cases, where you see something that works naturally on-screen, it’s a result of a lot of hard work.How do you calibrate that? Did they have a BAC number on the call sheet?Vinterberg: No BAC on the call sheet, but a pretty specific idea about how to move forward with each level of inebriation. Once we had the boot camp and had a feel of the different levels and their corresponding actions, we knew where we were heading. We also improvised a bit, of course, in order for it to feel more believable, because sometimes the realistic levels would seem too low for their onscreen behavior.Let s talk about Mads drunkenly dancing on the pier. How did you do it?Vinterberg: Knowing that Mads was a dancer, and knowing that I was making a movie about inspiration and ecstasy and breaking free of your normal, repetitious patterns, I felt it was kind of called for, that he should be dancing at the end. Though, we were all very cautious about it. Particularly Tobias Lindholm and Mads were afraid it would become cliché. We had a dance choreographer for the dance moves, but I, together with Mads, choreographed the to-ing and fro-ing to make it look real. It needed to look like a slice of life. Which is also why the dance is not pitch-perfect. After some hesitation, towards the very end, he lets go entirely. Everyone was so great in that moment. And Mads, of course, in particular, is absolutely outstanding, dancing alone, with no dance-doubles or anything. And yet still behind this cathartic weightless moment, there is this shadow, a sense of this deep tragedy.The film has global appeal. Is that because alcohol (which is thought of differently around the world) is a catalyst, not the crux?Vinterberg: You are right. The film is supposed to be about more than just drinking, of course. Spirit means more than alcohol and is embedded in the “inspiration” too.

Chief among these artists is Yorgos Lanthimos, who this month goes period – and wickedly funny – with his critically acclaimed The Favourite. The bitingly original tale of Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) and two women in vicious battle for her affections (Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone) is being hailed as a serious Oscar contender, and it currently sits Certified Fresh at 95% on the Tomatometer. As we get ready for its expanded release, we’re saying thank you to Lanthimos and 15 other innovators keeping theaters fresh.Yorgos LanthimosWhat exactly are society’s rules? Why do we follow them? And can we free ourselves of them? These questions are at the heart of the films of Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos. From Dogtooth s pessimistic take on innocence to The Lobster s satirical skewering of relationships, Lanthimos films feature bold cinematography, impeccable acting, and a childlike sense of humor and wonder. His latest critically acclaimed movie, The Favourite, takes a dark and hilarious look at the allure and horror of, well, favoritism.Claire DenisTo say that acclaimed French director Claire Denis has an eclectic filmography would be understating it. She’s turned her lens to imperialistic coffee bean farmers in Africa in White Material; to the life of a Parisian swinger in Let the Sunshine In; and, most recently, she wowed audiences at TIFF with a brutal sci-fi epic about forced reproduction in High Life. She’s known for letting her actors breathe and explore their characters, capturing the mood and psychology of a setting or idea while never losing focus of the humanity at the center of her stories.Gaspar NoéLife is just as beautiful as it is terrible at times, and few directors capture that duality as viscerally as Gaspar Noe. His films are kaleidoscopic gut punches of colors and textures, populated with characters as gentle and brutal as life itself. As graphic as the lovemaking in Love is, as horrific as the rape and violence in Irreversible is, as grossly hypnotic as the acid burnouts in Enter the Void are, Gaspar Noe is nothing if not honest.(Photo by Jack English/TM and Copyright ©Fox Searchlight Pictures.)Luca GuadagninoHow does one remake Suspiria, the experimental Italian bloodbath that many consider one of the greatest horror movies of all time? You hire Luca Guadagnino, award-winning director of acclaimed films Call Me by Your Name, I Am Love, and A Bigger Splash, all of which explore the nature of romance, and most of which wield Tilda Swinton like a scalpel. Guadagnino’s latest won’t appeal to everyone, but for those with patience to match their bloodlust – and anyone who loves dance – his Suspiria is a delicious freakout of a film.Denis VilleneuveHailing from Quebec, Denis Villeneuve instills his every frame with the bleakness of winter. His characters too can have a wintry disposition, men and women of few words, imbued by toughness. While his films, all of which are Fresh, span multiple genres – from thrillers like Prisoners to quasi-westerns like Sicario to cyber-punk Blade Runner 2049 (talk about an ambitious task) – they all concern the way we function in a society that often sees us for little more than our utility. They’re rarely hopeful films, but there’s plenty of thrills to be had and thinking to be done.Panos CosmatosWith just two brash films that have put the industry on high alert – this year s Mandy and 2010 s Beyond the Black Rainbow – Greek director Panos Cosmatos has made his approach very clear: he will be our generation’s purveyor of retro-’80s stylings – on LSD! For Cosmatos, style is substance, and his films are made to be experienced rather than necessarily followed. Think of them like walking through a strange, label-less museum. A museum with alien psychics, satanic cults, chainsaw sword fights, and weird macaroni-and-cheese commercials.Boots RileyOne movie. One movie was all it took to make rapper Boots Riley one of the most exciting movie satirists working today. His breakout film, Sorry to Bother You, throws an absurdist lens on everything: Capitalism! Consumerism! Colonialism! Wage Slavery! Racial Politics! Horse People! Culture Wars! Amazon! (We think.) He directs his actors with a slick, easy confidence, giving each the elbow room to ham it up and match his truly out-there stylings, which can recall an early Spike Jonze.(Photo by Atsushi Nishijima/©Paramount Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection)Ava DuVernayShe may be making movies for the Mouse House these days, but that has not dulled Ava DuVernay’s ambitions and tough-mindedness. The Academy Award nominee has married her activism with some of the most compelling filmmaking of the last decade: DuVernay s Netflix documentary 13th laid bare the racist machinations of the American prison system; her Martin Luther King Jr. biopic Selma dramatized both the heartbreak and achievements of the Civil Rights era in a way that felt ferociously urgent; even A Wrinkle in Time, her Disney-produced kids’ book adaptation, had a ton more on its mind than most fare aimed at the younger set. Next up: A five-part miniseries on the Central Park Five.Dee ReesDee Rees’ first feature, Pariah, used bold, expressionistic colors in a potent drama about a black teen in Brooklyn discovering her sexual orientation and coping with her alienation from the rest of society. Her second feature, Mudbound, explored race relations post-World War II in what was one of the best-reviewed movies of 2017. Rees swing from intimate urban drama to sprawling historical epic has us excited for what s coming next.Karyn KusamaKaryn Kusama s debut film, Girlfight, propelled her and Michelle Rodriguez into the stratosphere. What did she do next? A prestige Oscar flick? Another indie gem? No, she decided to tackle a big-budget studio project. Her mind-bending adaptation of Aeon Flux, starring Charlize Theron, might have been a critical and box office misstep, but it also showed her ambitions, and a refusal to rest on her laurels. Next up came Jennifer’s Body, the teen horror flick panned by critics at the time but which is undergoing something of a re-evaluation today, and then The Invitation, a mysterious dinner party flick that was considered among the most effective thrillers of 2015. Just in time for Awards season, this year she releases Destroyer, another movie unlike any other she’s made: it features Nicole Kidman as a detective in a gender-flipped noir mystery that some are saying is Kusama’s best and most daring movie yet.(Photo by ©Sony Pictures Classics/courtesy Everett Collection)Chloé ZhaoIndustry-watchers were not surprised when Chloé Zhao was recently announced as director of Marvel s The Eternals – the superhero film giant has a habit of nabbing great indie directors for its projects. To check out what Marvel – and many more film lovers – saw in Zhao, catch up with her stunning first two films, The Rider and Songs My Brothers Taught Me. Both are beautiful, poignant dramas set within U.S. indigenous communities. You truly haven t seen a sunset until you ve seen one filmed by Zhao.Robert EggersLooking for a daring debut feature? The Witch only had to be a horror movie set in Colonial America; instead, writer-director Robert Eggers presented it entirely in colonial English. That might ve been enough, but it was also an articulate treatise on femininity and its place in a patriarchal society. Anya Taylor-Joy is stunning as a colonial teen wrongfully accused of her infant brother s disappearance, and she finds herself demonized by her family s dogmatic zeal, her mother s jealousy, and her siblings oblivious pranks. There s also a damn creepy goat. Eggers sophomore feature will be 2019 s The Lighthouse, starring Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe.Lynne RamsayAll of Scottish director Lynne Ramsay s work contends with the cruel and often terrifying inevitability of confrontation, be it realizing that a loved one is dangerous in We Need to Talk About Kevin or coming to understand that your own memories are suspect as in You Were Never Really Here, which stars Joaquin Phoenix and was released to critical acclaim earlier this year. Ramsay s direction is raw and intense, but often desaturated and dreamlike, keeping us in her characters often unsure minds.Alex GarlandWhat are the things that make us human? Is it OK to be flawed? As a screenwriter, Alex Garland touched on these questions in 28 Days Later and Sunshine, but as a director, he s put them front and center with the likes of Ex Machina and Annihilation. The latter, released earlier this year, could have shorn off some of the more discombobulating aspects of its source material and been released as a standard sci-fi creature feature – those who saw it know that is absolutely not the approach Garland took.(Photo by Kimberly French/© Netflix /Courtesy Everett Collection)Bong Joon-hoThere s sci-fi, and then there s Snowpiercer – the last of humanity is on a train traveling on a never-ending loop around the world. Or there s Okja, in which the packaged meat industry breeds the perfect, overgrown, sentient animal to solve global hunger. Or there’s the great 2000s monster flick, The Host, in which mankind pays a huge, swimming, hungry price for its carelessness. Bong Joon-ho s strength is his almost Pixar-esque way of playing your emotions, even as he skewers our values and our world. He tugs at our heartstrings, makes us laugh, thrills us with adventure – and then coolly indicts us for being a big part of the problem.Janicza BravoUp-and-comer Janicza Bravo turned heads with her shorts Eat and Gregory Go Boom, and her first feature, Lemon, was a culmination of her themes and style. Her post-Wes Anderson pastels, symmetrical framing, and quirky comedy were employed in an expert and funny dive into suburbanism, social awkwardness, white maleness, and the impact of all upon race relations. You can bet her upcoming film, Zola, will be a funny and insightful take on wanderlust and black femininity.The Favourite is in limited release, expanding to more theaters November 30.

The renowned martial arts director and fight choreographer has orchestrated some of the most memorable and thrilling action sequences in all of cinema, working with people like Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh, and Donnie Yen. Some of his films, like Iron Monkey, Wing Chun, and the original Drunken Master, are widely celebrated classics of the genre, which has benefited from his talents for nearly half a century.This week, Yuen releases his latest directorial effort, a spinoff of the popular Ip Man franchise called Master Z: Ip Man Legacy. The film focuses on a martial arts master in 1960s Hong Kong who loses a duel with Ip Man and decides to retire, only to be drawn back into fighting by a local drug dealer. Normally, we would ask Yuen what his Five Favorite Films were, but with such an extensive list of credits, we thought we d do something a little more interesting. With that in mind, read on for Yuen Woo-ping s five favorite fight scenes that he himself directed.

Judging from the first trailer, we ll also get some flashbacks to the beginning of the invasion? Infestation? Whatever you want to call it, it looks like Krasinski has done a bang-up job ratcheting up the tension, and audiences should be in for another great ride.The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) 55%Directed by: Michael ChavesStarring: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, Julian HilliardOpening on: June 4, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO MaxPatrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return to reprise their roles as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in this third chapter of the original Conjuring franchise, focusing on a real case they investigated in which a murder suspect invoked demonic possession as a defense for his crimes. Michael Chaves, who directed 2019 s Conjuring-adjacent spinoff The Curse of La Llorona, takes the reins as director, while James Wan remains attached to the film as a producers.In the Heights (2021) 94%Directed by: Jon M. ChuStarring: Anthony Ramos, Leslie Grace, Corey Hawkins, Jimmy Smits, Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha PolancoOpening on: June 11, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO MaxCrazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu adapts Lin-Manuel Miranda s breakout musical, In the Heights. The show, which kicked off the Hamilton creator s career, won four Tony Awards in 2008, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. Chu demonstrated real skill with spectacle in Crazy Rich Asians, and the new movie shares similar themes of reclaiming one s heritage – it follows the stories of several characters in New York s heavily Latino neighborhood, Washington Heights, over three days.Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (2021) 67%Directed by: Will GluckStarring: James Corden, Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, David Oyelowo, Elizabeth DebickiOpening on: June 11, 2021 (formerly July 2, 2021)First the garden, then the world. The plot for this sequel to the surprise hit loosely based on the work of Beatrix Potter is still under lock and key, but we re sure it will involve James Corden s cheeky rabbit causing all sorts of PG-rated trouble. We do not expect any blackberries to be involved, however.The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2021) 27%Directed by: Patrick HughesStarring: Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayek, Richard E. Grant, Morgan Freeman, Antonio Banderas, Frank GrilloOpening on: June 16, 2021 (formerly August 20, 2021)2017 s The Hitman s Bodyguard didn t exactly wow the critics, but it was a moderate hit at the box office, so why not give it another go?

Director Justin Lin was the man to turn the franchise around, delivering the series first Fresh entry on his third try with 2011 s Fast Five (Certified Fresh at 73%); since then, every Fast movie has landed on the red end of the Tomatometer. The new entry will bring the family back together to face off against a new villain played by John Cena who happens to be Dom Toretto s brother. Also, Han is back? What? The film was originally slated to open in May of 2020, but was pushed back almost a year to occupy the slot that had originally been reserved for Fast Furious 10.Zola (2020) 88%Directed by: Janicza BravoStarring: Taylour Paige, Riley KeoughOpening on: June 30, 2021Based on a notoriously stranger-than-fiction series of viral tweets (and a subsequent Rolling Stone article) from 2015, this adventure comedy follows a Detroit waitress who embarked on a road trip to Florida with a stripper and ended up spending the craziest two days of her life with her.The Boss Baby: Family Business (2021) 47%Directed by: Tom McGrathStarring: Alec Baldwin, Amy Sedaris, Lisa Kudrow, James Marsden, Jeff Goldblum, Jimmy Kimmel, Eva LongoriaOpening on: July 2, 2021 (formerly September 17, 2021) in theaters and streaming on PeacockThe Boss Baby might be Rotten, but its monster box office take shows the audience is hungry for more. This time, though, the story takes place years after the first film, when the original Boss Baby Ted voiced by Alec Baldwin and his older brother Tim have both grown up. Tim now has a smarty-pants infant of his own (Amy Sedaris), who embarks on a secret mission involving her big sister.The Forever Purge (2021) 50%Directed by: Everardo GoutStarring: Ana de la Reguera, Josh Lucas, Tenoch Huerta, Will PattonOpening on: July 2, 2021Set after 2016 s Purge: Election Year, in which the Purge was officially abolished, this next chapter in the franchise goes smaller than its predecessors.

David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, and Florence Pugh co-star, and who knows? Maybe Jeremy Renner s Hawkeye will make an appearance.Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) 48%Directed by: Adam RobitelStarring: Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Isabelle Fuhrman, Holland RodenOpening on: July 16, 2021 (formerly January 7, 2022)Taylor Russell and Logan Miller return to reprise their roles from the first Escape Room, a Saw-inspired horror-thriller that became something of a surprise hit when it premiered in January of 2019. Though we don t know exactly what the second film will be about, the first one ended on a pretty suggestive cliffhanger, so we can expect Ben (Miller) and Zoey (Russell) to take part in a new round of deadly games. Originally slated to debut in 2020, and then in 2021, the film was ultimately pushed even further back to 2022.Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021) 26%Directed by: Malcolm D. LeeStarring: LeBron James, Don Cheadle, Cedric Joe, Sonequa Martin-GreenOpening on: July 16, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO MaxSpeaking of old stories for new audiences, LeBron James long-awaited Space Jam sequel will finally arrive in 2021.

Night ShyamalanStarring: Gael García Bernal, Eliza Scanlen, Thomasin McKenzie, Alex WolffOpening on: July 23, 2021 (formerly February 26, 2021)M. Night Shyamalan s newest project seems like a fairly straightforward idea, so it ll be interesting to see where he takes it. In Old, a family on vacation discovers that the isolated beach where they re relaxing is causing them to age rapidly. This is the first of two films the horror auteur is slated to direct for Universal in the coming years.Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (2021) 36%Directed by: Robert SchwentkeStarring: Henry Golding, Samara Weaving, Iko UwaisOpening on: July 23, 2021 (formerly October 22, 2021)Snake Eyes, the mute ninja/commando previously portrayed by Ray Park in the live-action G.I. Joe film franchise, gets an origin story. The character s past has always been shrouded in mystery, save for the fact that he was once close friends with enemy ninja Storm Shadow and the fact that an explosion not only severely disfigured his face but also fried his vocal cords. Now we get to see how it all came to be.The Green Knight (2021) 88%Director: David LoweryStarring: Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, Barry Keoghan, Sarita ChoudhuryOpening on: July 30, 2021Based on the 14th century Arthurian poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, this medieval fantasy adventure written and directed by David Lowery (Ain t Them Bodies Saints, The Old Man the Gun) appears to be splashed with a touch of horror, at least judging from the cryptic trailer. It was originally slated for a 2020 release before it moved to 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions.Jungle Cruise (2021) 62%Director: Jaume Collet-SerraStarring: Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Édgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Paul GiamattiOpening on: July 30, 2021Following the path that Pirates of the Caribbean charted so successfully, this new film (franchise?) is based on the Disney theme park attraction of the same name. Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star, respectively, as a riverboat captain and a scientist on a hunt for a magical cure in this Depression-era action adventure. Comedian Jack Whitehall also joins in the fun, playing Blunt’s character’s brother. Collet-Serra has had a string of action-thriller hits working with Liam Neeson (Commuter, Non-Stop, Unknown), so there s a chance this one could be slightly darker than anticipated.Stillwater (2021) 75%Directed by: Tom McCarthyStarring: Matt Damon, Abigail Breslin, Camille CottinOpening on: July 30, 2021 (formerly November 6, 2020)Matt Damon stars in this thriller about an Oklahoma oil-rig worker who travels to Marseille, France to unravel a mystery and clear his daughter s name when when she is imprisoned for a crime she says she didn t commit. The film co-stars Abigail Breslin and is directed and co-written by Tom McCarthy, who won a pair of Oscars for 2015 s Spotlight, so there s considerable pedigree behind this project, and there s no reason not to be optimistic about it.Vivo (2021) 86%Directed by: Kirk DeMiccoStarring: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Zoe Saldana, Brian Tyree Henry, Nicole Byer, Leslie David BakerOpening on: July 30, 2021 in select theaters and August 6, 2021 on NetflixHot on the heels of the Oscar-nominated Moana and 2020 s In The Heights movie adaptation, Broadway legend Lin-Manuel Miranda will return to his musical roots with a new animated musical from Sony.

He stars as Guy, a nondescript bank teller non-player character (NPC) in a violent, open-world video game who suddenly becomes self-aware and decides to take his destiny into his own hands. Expect a lot of ironic, self-referential humor and over-the-top action shenanigans, which, when Ryan Reynolds is involved, is essentially its own genre these days.Respect (2021) 68%Directed by: Liesl TommyStarring: Jennifer Hudson, Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Marc Maron, Audra McDonald, Mary J. BligeOpening on: August 13, 2021 (formerly January 15, 2021)Jennifer Hudson has some big shoes to fill, as she steps into the role of Aretha Franklin in Liesl Tommy s biopic of the legendary singer in Respect.

Rachel McAdams is set to return as Irene Adler, with a script from Chris Brancato, best known for his work in television on Hannibal and Narcos, and Bohemian Rhapsody director Dexter Fletcher is at the helm, though he did report back in October of 2020 that the film was on the back burner, so it likely won t hold to its 2021 release plans.Escape from SpiderheadDirected by: Joseph KosinskiStarring: Chris Hemsworth, Miles Teller, Jurnee Smollett, Mark Paguio, Tess HaubrichOpening on: TBD on NetflixWorking from a script by Deadpool writing duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy, Top Gun: Maverick) directs this action film about a pair of near-future convicts who agree to a series of experimental drug tests in exchange for shorter prison sentences.

The stop motion-animated adaptation of the classic tale will reportedly be a tad darker than we may be accustomed to, with del Toro calling it a brutalist fable. Like The Power of the Dog, this was picked up by Netflix and given a 2021 release date; whether or not the streaming giant will put it in theaters remains to be seen.Jan-Mar | Apr-June | July-Sep | Oct-DecThe Best Movies of 2019 | The Most Anticipated Movies of 2020Thumbnail image by Jaap Buitendijk/©Focus Features.

This week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Another Round, The Borrowers, Captain America 4, and Cleopatra Jones.This WEEK S TOP STORYCAPTAIN AMERICA 4 IS OFFICIALLY IN THE WORKS(Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)First off, we absolutely need to put a big, fat SPOILER WARNING here for the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. If you haven t seen or finished that show yet, just stop here and enjoy wondering how Marvel will bring back Chris Evans as the title character. For those still reading, because obviously, that spoiler warning totally worked, you now know that the star of Captain America 4 will be Anthony Mackie, formerly known as The Falcon (or to some, Black Falcon), who took over as Captain America by the end of the show. Captain America 4 will very much be a creative continuation of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, as its showrunner (and head writer) Malcolm Spellman will be co-writing the film with Dalan Musson, one of the show s staff writers. Technically, no casting has been done yet for Captain America 4, but Anthony Mackie is almost certainly a sure thing, and some of the other of the show s characters, like Bucky (Sebastian Stan), Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl), Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp), Joaquin Torres (Danny Ramirez), and U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell) could also return. Captain America 4 also doesn t have a director yet, but many people online are suggesting that the show s director, Kari Skogland, should return to helm this feature as well. For more insight into where Captain America 4 might go next, check out this interview with Spellman. Marvel Studios has not yet announced a release date for Captain America 4, but it s unlikely to be anytime before 2023.Other Top Headlines1. THE GODZILLA VS. KONG MONSTERVERSE WILL CONTINUE, POSSIBLY WITH SON OF KONG (Photo by Everett Collection)Once upon a time, when Legendary Pictures first struck a deal with Japan s Godzilla home company Toho to make English-language films, it was for four movies, of which Godzilla vs. Kong (Certified Fresh at 75%) was the fourth. It was for that reason that many fans expected that the Monsterverse was probably going to end there (and also due to fears that COVID-19 would keep the box office down). The pandemic almost certainly did leave a pawprint on the box office, but 6 million and counting (globally) is still pretty great, and on HBO Max, Godzilla vs. Kong also beat the first week viewing numbers for the heavily promoted Zack Snyder s Justice League. Given all those factors, Legendary has indeed begun talks with director Adam Wingard about a sequel that is rumored to be titled Son of Kong, which would be a direct reference to the 1933 sequel (Rotten at 42%) with a very different premise than we re likely to see (since Kong: Skull Island did not feature the Carl Denham filmmaker character). Of course, the tease of Son of Kong also suggests the existence of a Mrs. Kong. Whatever it ends up being, this sequel is at least a few years away, as Wingard is expected to direct both his Face/Off sequel and the live action ThunderCats before it.2. LEONARDO DICAPRIO TO REMAKE ACADEMY AWARD WINNER ANOTHER ROUND (Photo by ©Samuel Goldwyn Films)As with pretty much every year of the Academy Awards, this week s ceremony had both snubs and surprises, but people tend to talk less about about the winners that weren t so surprising. For example, in the Best International Feature category, Thomas Vinterberg s film about Danish day-drinking educators, Another Round (Certified Fresh at 92%), was expected by many to win, and it did. Within hours of that win, Leonardo DiCaprio s Appian Way production company swooped in and acquired the rights for an English-language remake. DiCaprio is not currently attached to star in the remake, but there s definitely a good chance that he could (presumably as the lead character played by Mads Mikkelsen in the Danish version). He also was not the only Hollywood star who tried to land the Another Round remake, as both Jake Gyllenhaal and Elizabeth Banks also made bids on it. Another Round was actually called Druk in Denmark (Danish for Drunk ), so it s possible that the remake could follow suit and take the title Drunk as well.3. LOVECRAFT COUNTRY WRITER WORKING ON CLEOPATRA JONES REMAKE (Photo by Everett Collection)The early 1970s explosion of Blaxploitation movies featuring African American leads is often called a genre, but it was more of an industry umbrella under which films of many different genres were produced. Consider, for example, the 1973 film Cleopatra Jones (Fresh at 79%), which was basically a spy spoof (the villain was Shelley Winters as an international opium drug lord called Mommy, and Cleopatra Jones was a secret agent). The news first broke in 2017 that Warner Bros. had started development on a Cleopatra Jones remake, but it took three and a half years for the studio to make the next move by hiring a screenwriter. That job has gone to Ihuoma Ofordire, one of the writers of the series Lovecraft Country on HBO (also a corporate cousin of Warner Bros). Warner Bros. has not yet announced who might star 这类拼数值的手游还有一个很大的槽点，那就是它们真的很难还原多人团战的热闹场面。像是多数SLG游戏虽然号称有上万人参与团战，但是其实懂的人都懂，那不过是在真实的数字后面加个0，恢弘场面全得靠自己脑补。对我这样热衷团战的玩家来说，如今在手游里已然很难找回当年魔兽里那种人山人海联盟部落战的大场面，或是《EVEOnline》中那种几百上千架飞船激烈对战的壮阔场景。
