Binge Guide: 5 Things to Watch If You Love The Walking Dead AMC's zombie universe shuffled onto small screens 10 years ago. Here are a few titles to snack on while you await the series' return. by RT Staff | November 2, 2020 | Comments sets his sights on bringing down hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod (Homeland‘s Damian Lewis) for insider trading and other illegal proclivities. In other words, all this real-world talk about one-percenters is rejiggered for some A-grade entertainment with some of the best actors working today.Why you should watch it: Giamatti has built a career on playing the everyman, and here, he’s fighting for him. The actor’s turn as the hard-hitting U.S. attorney would be reason alone to watch (scenes of surprise BDSM and all), but Billions also boasts a timely, engrossing premise and firecracker performances from Lewis, Maggie Siff, Condola Rashad, Asia Kate Dillon, and a bevy of other supporters that meet Giamatti mark for mark. Season 5 premieres May 3 on Showtime.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, VuduCommitment: Approx. 48 hours (for the first four seasons)RENO 911! 86% (Quibi)What it is: The hapless and hopeless crew at the Reno, Nevada sheriff’s department are the befuddling subject of this mockumentary series as improv comedians at the top of their game run around the biggest little city in the world stopping crime in its tracks — to less than satisfactory results. Why you should watch it: “Reno 911!” was one of the first of its mockumentary, workplace comedy kinds upon its Comedy Central premiere in 2003. Plus, it launched the comedy careers of by-this-point industry vets, including Niecy Nash, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Thomas Lennon, and Cedric Yarbrough. The season 7 reboot premieres May 4 on Quibi.Where to watch: Amazon, Google Play, MicrosoftCommitment: Approx. 32 hours (for the first six seasons)Dead to Me 89% (Netflix)What it is: Christina Applegate stars as Jen with Linda Cardellini as Judy, two widows who bond in a group therapy session through their opposing outlooks on life (the former hardened and angry, the latter new-agey and optimistic). Things in their friendship take a turn, however, when it’s learned that Judy isn’t exactly who she says she is — and she might know something about Jen’s husband’s hit-and-run death.Why you should watch it: From creator Liz Feldman and co-producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Jessica Elbaum, Dead to Me was the must-watch, pitch-black comedy of last summer and went on to earn industry vet Applegate a surprise (and well-deserved) Emmy nomination later that year. Plus, with 30-minute episodes, it’s a binge that goes down easy. Season 2 premieres May 8 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 5 hours (for the first season)Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt 96% (Netflix)What it is: After Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) is rescued from an underground bunker where she was being held captive by a brainwashing cult leader, she does what any young woman who wants to see the world would do: She moves to New York City! The Netflix comedy is from creators Robert Carlock and Tina Fey, and though it wrapped its acclaimed four-season run early last year, this interactive special is sure to pass the time while in quarantine. Think of it as Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, but funnier.Why you should watch it: Kimmy, her new roommate Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess), her new boss Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski), and her landlady Lillian Kaushtupper (Carol Kane) are sure to put a little pep in your step (and for more reasons than the titular hero’s incessant optimism) through their New York misadventures (and misunderstandings). Catch up on the whole thing before the special, which sees our hero face off with her arch nemesis in lead-up to her wedding, drops May 12 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 25 hours (for all four seasons)The 100 93% (The CW)What it is: Here’s another intelligent, original take on the post-nuclear apocalypse from Jason Rothenberg for the CW. Set 97 years after nuclear war wiped out humanity, the mere thousands remaining survived by escaping on an ark-like spaceship that remained within Earth’s orbit. The twisty caveat? The series’ title represents the 100 juvenile prisoners who, against their will, are forced out of the Ark and back to Earth to learn if it’s habitable. To their surprise, it turns out that some humans lived through the nuclear war from the century prior — and not all of them are ready to befriend the young visitors.Why you should watch it: As is the case with much of the CW’s slate of programming, The 100 is led by an impressive ensemble of young, breakout actors who are made all the more impressive by their series’ meatier material. Plus with an air-tight, high-concept foundation, there’s a reason we’ve been coming back for six seasons and counting. Season 7, its final outing, premieres May 20 on the CW.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Netflix, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 60 hours (for the first six seasons)Homecoming 78% (Amazon Prime)What it is: Based on the original podcast of the same name and from creators Micah Bloomberg, Eli Horowitz, and Mr. Robot mastermind Sam Esmail, Homecoming stars Julia Roberts as Heidi, an employee at the titular government facility meant to transition soldiers back into daily life post-combat. Told partially through flashback memory, the action of the series picks up when the Department of Defense comes knocking, asking why she left.Why you should watch it: Craftily told and featuring a behemoth performance from Roberts and If Beale Street Could Talk breakout Stephan James, Homecoming is for anyone who likes their conspiracy dramas served with a twist. Season 2, which stars James and Janelle Monáe, premieres May 22 on Amazon Prime.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google PlayCommitment: Approx. 5 hours (for the first season)Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 95% (ABC)What it is: S.H.I.E.L.D. is the kind of agency you want at your back. Led by fan-favorite Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg, who caused uproar upon his character’s death in 2012’s The Avengers), Marvel Comics’ fictional Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division fights the behind-the-scenes battles that the average human wouldn’t dare face (see: Project Centipede and more). It’s wild, it’s crazy, and it’s been a heck of a fun time for Marvel superfans going for seven seasons strong.Why you should watch it: Sure, this puzzle piece within the Marvel Cinematic Universe maintains the franchise call-backs and tonally checks all the boxes of what we look for in a Marvel romp, but you don’t have to be a die-hard lover of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and company to fall for S.H.I.E.L.D.’s extraterrestrial adventures and the now-beloved ensemble of characters it has built throughout its 100-plus episodes. Season 7, it’s final installment, premieres May 27 on ABC.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 92 hours (for the first six seasons)Ramy 96% (Hulu)What it is: “Ramy” tells the story of a millennial Muslim trying to balance the expectations of his culture and family with his innate desires for something different.Why you should watch it: This semi-autobiographical dramedy series from comedian Ramy Youssef (who took home a surprise Golden Globe award for his performance on the first season) is a coming-of-ager unlike any other. Drenched in the cultural and religious implications of a Muslim 20-something trying to find his way, it intelligently cuts to the heart of contemporary life in the city (including religion- and race-based prejudice) while still landing a joke. Season 2 premieres May 29 on Hulu.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 5 hours (for the first season)Thumbnail image: Hulu; Sergei Bachlakov/The CW; ABC/Matthias ClamerLiked this piece?

Joely Richardson. Gaiman, in a blog post, wrote, there are more parts to be announced. And I thought it would be fun to tell you about some of them, and the thinking behind them.DEATH – Dream s wiser, nicer, and much more sensible sister. Significantly harder to cast than you might imagine (well, than I imagined, anyway). Hundreds of talented women from all around the planet auditioned, and they were brilliant, and none of them were right. Someone who could speak the truth to Dream, on the one hand, but also be the person you d want to meet when your life was done on the other. And then we saw Kirby Howell-Baptiste’s (she/her) audition and we knew we had our Death.DESIRE – Dream s sibling and everything you want, whatever you want and whoever you are. Desire is also trouble for Dream. Families are complicated. We had barely started looking when Mason Alexander Park (they/them) reached out on Twitter, and threw their hat into the ring. We were thrilled when they got the part.DESPAIR – Desire s twin, Dream s sister. She is the moment when all hope is gone, the bleakest of the Endless. Donna Preston (she/her) will be playing her, and her performance is chilling and sad. You feel her pain.JOHANNA CONSTANTINE – Eighteenth Century occult adventuress, John Constantine’s great-great-great grandmother. This Sandman character became so popular that she even had her own spin-off series. I created her to fill the role that John Constantine does in the past. When we broke down the first season, given that we knew that we would be encountering Johanna in the past, we wondered what would happen if we met a version of her in the present as well. We tried it and the script was sparkier, feistier, and in some ways even more fun. So having written her, we just had to cast her. Jenna Coleman (she/her) gave us the Johanna of our dreams – tough, brilliant, tricky, haunted and probably doomed.ETHEL CRIPPS – Roderick Burgess s love, John Dee s mother, is a small but vital role in the comics, but she became more important as we told our story. In the 1920s and 30s, she is played by Niamh Walsh (she/her): a betrayed and determined young woman seeking to survive. In the present day, now a woman of a hundred identities and a thousand lies, she s played by the brilliant Joely Richardson (she/her).JOHN DEE – Ethel s son is dangerous. He was driven mad, long ago. Now he s out and on a quest for Truth that may destroy the world. We needed an actor who could break your heart and keep your sympathy while taking you into the darkest places. We were lucky that David Thewlis (he/him) took the part.Now we re shooting The Doll s House, the second big Sandman storyline. It s the story of:ROSE WALKER – a young woman on a desperate search for her missing brother, who finds a family she didn t know that she had, and a connection to Dream that neither of them can escape. We needed someone young who could make you care as she ventures into some very dangerous places. Boyd Holbrook s Corinthian is waiting for her, after all. Kyo Ra (she/her) achieves that as Rose.LYTA HALL – Rose’s friend, a young widow mourning her husband Hector. Rose doesn t know that Hector has started showing up in Lyta s dreams, though. Or that strange things are happening. Razane Jammal (she/her) is Lyta, and she s terrific.UNITY KINKAID Heiress, Rose s mysterious benefactor. She has spent a century asleep. Now she s awake, having missed out on her life. She s played by Sandra James Young (she/her).GILBERT – Rose Walker s debonair protector. A dab hand with a paradox and a sword cane. Stephen Fry (he/him) is a National Treasure, and we forget sometimes that he s also a remarkable actor. Seeing him in costume and make up on the dailies made me blink: it was as if the comic had come to life.MATTHEW – Dream’s trusted emissary. A raven. I expected our animals to be CGI, and was both taken aback and thrilled when the dailies started coming in, and there was Dream talking to well, a raven. But ravens don t really talk. The question was, could we find an actor who could make you care about a dead person who was now a bird in the Dreaming – one who isn t certain what s going on, or whether any of this is a good idea? And could we find a voice performer who was also the kind of Sandman fan who used to stand in line to get his Sandman comics signed? The answer was, we could if we asked Patton Oswalt (he/him). And Patton was the first person we asked, and the first person we cast, the day before we pitched The Sandman to Netflix.Of course, there are more delights and nightmares cast than I ve listed here, and we have a few more secrets up our sleeves. I can t wait until you can start watching. On September 25, 2021, Gaiman and Sturridge revealed a first look at the series opening moments, in which Burgess summons Dream and, apparently, gets some help from an unseen Corinthian. The official Instagram and Twitter accounts also unveiled the first character posters for Dream, Death, and Desire.I am the Lord of Dream and Nightmare. pic.twitter.com/8t8NI9PZZd The Sandman (@Netflix_Sandman) September 25, 2021What Is the Story?Joel MearesAs for the main plot, Dream will likely spend the season reclaiming three essential items containing much of his power – a ruby, a bag of dust, and a gas-mask-like helmet – while learning the ways his captivity changed the Dreaming and the waking world. In the comics, this story featured appearances from DC characters like Dr. Destiny, Martian Manhunter, and John Constantine, but it is unclear if the TV series will maintain these comic book ties. For Instance, although John (and actor Matt Ryan) will be absent from the series, his ancestor Johanna Constantine will take his place in the scoundrel s team-up with Dream.Additionally, issue #4, “A Hope in Hell,” introduced the version of Lucifer Morningstar featured in Netflix’s Lucifer. While we initially theorized Lucifer star Tom Ellis might do another cross-show cameo (he appeared briefly in the Arrowverse’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event), the part will be played by Game of Thrones’ Christie. Considering Lucifer is far more androgynous in The Sandman – and quite like David Bowie in his first appearance – the choice of Christie is inspired. Although, it should be noted that the Prince of Darkness only makes a handful of appearances in the series, so it remains to be seen how often we will actually see Christie on screen.Though Sturridge and Christie’s involvement was rumored for some time, Netflix confirmed their participation in January 2021. Other actors confirmed at the time include Acheampong as Morpheus’s trusted librarian Lucienne; Bhaskar and Chaudhry as Cain and Abel – yes, that Cain and Abel; Holbrook as the Corinthian, the murderous dream who becomes more of a threat in the comic book’s second storyline; and Dance s Roderick Burgess, a key figure in Dream’s 20th century captivity.The program will also update the story, with Dream escaping his captivity in the 2020s instead of the 1980s. As Gaiman told CBC Radio in November of 2019, “Instead of him being a captive for about 80 years, he s going to be a captive for about 110 years and that will change things.” But, as he learned adapting Good Omens to the medium, changing things is part of the fun; though, fans surely wonder how much of the comic’s undeniably goth aesthetic will survive the update. Will Morpheus’ sister look passé with her Cleopatra eye make-up and ankh pendant? Or will it have retro charm by the time we first hear the sound of her wings?Gaiman is already willing to change Dream s look, originally inspired by Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy. Nevertheless, he promises a more or less faithful telling of the story is on its way.When Will It Premiere?The series will likely appear sometime in 2021; of course, that could change in the current climate. And though it is a while to wait, there is good news: Gaiman, Goyer, and Heinberg have already plotted season 2.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.

Jacqueline Coley for Rotten Tomatoes: I know you guys said that Uncut Gems had been in your head for 10 years, this idea of telling the story with Howard. So, was this a guy that you recognize from your own personal experience? Why was Howard this character that you were always continually writing over the years? Benny Safdie: In a weird way, the writing part of it is strange, because you have a 10-year project, you have this thing; it s kind of like a receptacle for all of your ideas and your life. It becomes a character that becomes analogous. As a filmmaker who is hustling, trying to get work, trying to get this made, you can t help but try to do whatever you have to do to get to see your dream come to fruition – so you can relate to Howard in that regards. But Howard, there was something about the relentlessness about Howard s pursuit of his own dream. That and the fact that he was trying to not only realize his dream against all circumstances, but also that he was able to be a provider, that he was this guy who provided for all these people around him. He was a world-creator, and he was a vanguard world-creator. Just the idea that Howard was somebody who was never going to stop in pursuit of his dream, and knowing that, in the end, it s going to be good for everybody. You know what I mean? There s something about that, that was very helpful.Josh Safdie: And I ll just add one thing, that he is, almost in a weird way, kind of this archetypal character of a dreamer, but also there s this kind of Jewishness to him. There s all of these characters and literature and movies that it was a feeling of, OK, I want to add to that. I want to build up a guy who was like these people that I ve kind of admired, looked at. Rotten Tomatoes: Talk about casting Adam Sandler as this man you had built up. Benny: Sandler was paramount, always. He s the only person who can make Howard lovable and also infuse the character s insane optimism as a gambler with a humor, with an element of humor, with an air of humor. The humor is so important to the way the film functions. Yes, it s this very tense film that s literally, like, your heart feels like it s going to implode because it s such a tense thriller. But without that comic relief that Sandler so effortlessly infuses into Howard, the movie just does not function. And Howard is, he s a patriarch, and so is Sandler.Josh: Also, whenever Sandler is in a movie, you root for him in the face of the most absurd situations. You really believe the things are happening to him and he s feeling them. So, in this in particular, you need to be rooting for Howard to succeed, because again, all of the things fall into place after that. You know, you could not like him, but you are loving him. And if you re yelling at the screen, you are yelling at him to not do things. And you only do that to people who you want to see good things happen to.Rotten Tomatoes: This movie has gotten everybody all kinds of excited, but people have seen Good Time. They know how tense you guys are. Give me a quick one-liner to prep folks for what they should expect going into the film.Josh: I think they can expect an immersive, thrilling experience that will keep you laughing on the edge of your seat to the point that you fall down and you sit on someone else s popcorn.Benny: Yeah. And you will also hope we have the feeling of actually moving to the edge of your seat.Uncut Gems is in theaters everywhere.

My connection to Dee Rees’ Pariah began one night at a Berlin bar. On New Year’s Eve 2009, I headed out for a drink in the German city, where I was stationed in the Air Force. As I settled in for the night and took a sip, I thought, “I am a lesbian.” It’s not something I had thought about in the weeks prior, but it felt right to say it then; and so over the super-loud music, I told my best friend that I was satisfied with coming out as a lesbian. I rang in that new year with a new branch of identity, one that felt right but also terrifying because I had a lot of questions. How would I integrate myself into this community? Would I have to fight for acceptance within it? How do I find a date? These aren’t things I felt comfortable asking someone; I needed to experience it for myself. Unfortunately, I also had to deploy. I worked nights, gave up on a social life, and didn’t have time to process those questions or get close to any answers. Instead I watched films, and one day someone suggested I check out Rees’ Pariah. I did some research, discovered what it was about, and knew this was something I needed to see.(Photo by Focus Features)Pariah follows Alike (Adepero Oduye), a 17-year-old Brooklynite who longs for an intimate connection with someone of the same sex. She knows she’s a lesbian and hasn’t come out to her parents; those around her suspect she may be gay based on her fashion choices and current friends, who are openly gay women. Observing this behavior, her mother Audrey (Kim Wayans) encourages her to befriend Bina (Aasha Davis), in the hope she will rub off on her daughter: Bina is feminine, demure, goes to church – everything Audrey s daughter is not. Alike develops a crush on her new friend, and things look promising until Bina admits the feeling isn’t mutual. Meanwhile, tensions are rising at home. Audrey is incensed at the idea that one of her children is gay, while Alike’s father Arthur (Charles Parnell) believes his wife is overreacting. Tired of the drama, Alike leaves home early for college to start life anew. As she is about to board the bus to college, director Rees interposes the action with a shot of Alike reading her poetry. When she’s finally on the bus, glaring out of the window with a look of satisfaction, we hear the line “I am not running, I’m choosing.” It hits close to home.(Photo by Focus Features/ Everett Collection)“I’m not running, I’m choosing” is a theme that ripples throughout the film, during which Alike is in a constant tug-of-war between family obligation and self-preservation. In the end, she chooses herself – not out of selfishness but for her own mental and spiritual wellbeing. Unlike Alike, my family didn’t have issues with my coming out. They were very accepting, and many were not surprised. However, it’s still a heavy cross to bear when you exist at marginalized intersections. Claiming a sexual label outside of heterosexuality – on top of being Black and a woman in America – can mean you face physical abuse, verbal abuse, and sometimes death. Alike and I have the same skin complexion, are of the same sexual orientation, we grew up in similar environments, and we made the bold choice to leave because it was the best choice for us and no one else. For me, leaving home to join the military was a decision without outside influences – the kind of major decision I hadn t made until then. Seeing Pariah gave me confidence and confirmed that I made the right choice.Katie ShearerThe movie changed my life and my perspective on what it means to be happy with everything I am. When the film was released, it didn’t receive the notoriety it deserves. Now, many movie fans are discovering what a gem Pariah is. I would go so far as to say it paved the way for films like Moonlight, Night Comes On, and Rafiki. Rees has built a successful career. She followed Pariah with the HBO original film Bessie, starring Queen Latifah; Mudbound, her third feature, picked up four Oscar nominations, including for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Cinematography. Her next film is an adaptation of the Joan Didion novel, The Last Thing He Wanted.I’m just here to remind movie fans that Pariah should always come up in conversation when discussing queer cinema game changers. It’s a movie that speaks to a demographic that rarely interests Hollywood studios – Black queer women and non-binary people. Rees took a cinematic risk and in doing so created a queer classic that holds up 10 years later – and will for decades to come.Valerie Complex is a military veteran turned freelance movie journalist in love with all things related to cinema.Like this?

Today s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Bill Ted Face the Music, Black Widow, and Masters of the Universe.This WEEK S TOP STORYJOHN DAVID WASHINGTON, ROBERT PATTINSON JOIN CHRISTOPHER NOLAN S NEXT FILM(Photo by JA, Dee Cercone/Everett Collection)Director Christopher Nolan is notoriously secretive about the premises behind his films (we re thinking here of Inception and Interstellar, in particular). Warner Bros. has scheduled Nolan s next movie for July 17, 2020 (up against the Bob s Burgers movie, and the week after Ghostbusters 3), and we still have very little idea what it s about, but this week, we learned of three stars who have joined the film. The first actor announced was John David Washington, who is coming off the lead role in Spike Lee s BlacKkKlansman. Variety reported at the same time that Nolan s film will be a massive, innovative, action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax, which is better than nothing, but still not much. The second star to be announced was Robert Pattinson, who first came to fame in the Twilight Saga movies but has mostly been working in independent film since. Finally, we also now know that the first actress announced was Elizabeth Debicki, who recently earned the admiration of critics in Steve McQueen s Widows. Nolan s film sounds like it might have an ensemble cast, so there are potentially still be more names yet to be announced.Fresh Developments1. BLACK WIDOW RECRUITS ITS POTENTIAL VILLAIN(Photo by Marvel Studios)Although several of the MCU s stars were obviously already famous when they landed their roles in the franchise (Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd, and Benedict Cumberbatch, for example), some of them were decidedly less so (like Tom Holland, Tom Hiddleston, and Letitia Wright). So, if you want to get ahead of the game, you might want to check out the films of 23-year-old English actress Florence Pugh (Lady MacBeth, Outlaw King), because this week, she started talks for next year s Black Widow. Although Pugh s role isn t known yet, it s described as a spy on Black Widow s level, which many sources are interpreting as the film s main villain (or at least, adversarial) role. (Check out this Hollywood Reporter piece if you want some in-depth speculation about Black Widow.) Florence Pugh s agents were busy this week, as she s also now signed to star in the decades-spanning drama The Secret Ingredients of Rocket Cola, which will be directed by Scrubs star Zach Braff.2. MICHAEL B. JORDAN PRODUCING SECRET MONSTER MOVIE (Photo by Marvel Studios)Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island) is not yet a household name, but he could be on his way, especially after his Metal Gear Solid dream project gets produced. Creed and Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan s Outlier Society production company has now stepped up to team up with Vogt-Roberts to produce what is described as a monster movie set in Detroit (Vogt-Roberts hometown). The secret monster movie is also being produced by New Regency, which is also producing the upcoming Brad Pitt outer space drama Ad Astra (5/24/2019).3. NEW TITLES FOR DORA THE EXPLORER, ANNABELLE, AND TERMINATOR MOVIES (Photo by New Line Cinema)Presumably coincidentally, three big new movies (previously just known by their franchies) received their actual release titles this week. Let s start with the Dora the Explorer movie, which lost 2/3 of that franchise title as the movie is now titled Dora and the Lost City of Gold (8/2/2019), as we can see on the new posters (which also show off the CGI Boots the monkey). Another franchise entry due out this year is the third Annabelle horror movie, which is now called Annabelle Comes Home (6/28/2019). Later this year, we ll be getting the latest Terminator reboot, now called Terminator: Dark Fate (11/1/2019). Finally, there s the Sopranos prequel The Many Saints of Newark (9/25/2020), which is back to that title after briefly being shortened to Newark by some sources.4. EMILY BLUNT WILL NOT FADE AWAY(Photo by Glen Wilson/Universal Pictures)Emily Blunt has now wrapped her role in Disney s Jungle Cruise movie (7/24/2020), based on their long-running theme park attraction, and won t start filming the sequel to A Quiet Place (5/15/2020) until this summer. This week, Blunt started talks to star in Not Fade Away, an adaptation of the 2015 memoir Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found by Rebecca Alexander, as the author herself, who was born with a rare genetic mutation that caused her to lose her sight and hearing over time, beat the odds and expectations of her prognosis. Blunt s husband John Krasinski will also produce the adaptation, along with director David O. Russell (Three Kings, American Hustle).5. JENNIFER LOPEZ AND CARDI B TEAMING UP TO BE HUSTLERS(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough, Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Like many (many) singers/rappers before her, Cardi B is preparing to make the transition to the big screen as an actress, as she will make her film debut in the drama Hustlers, about a group of ex-strippers who unite to take on Wall Street. The Hustlers at Scores, an article originally published in New York magazine, was the inspiration for the film. Cardi B will be part of an ensemble cast that also includes singers/actresses Jennifer Lopez and Keke Palmer, as well as Julia Stiles and Crazy Rich Asians star Constance Wu. STXfilms will distribute Hustlers, which started filming today in New York City.
As more and more people are compelled to practice social distancing and encouraged to stay home, as movie theaters temporarily shutter their doors, and as studios continue to pull their scheduled 2020 films off the release calendar, we ve decided to reformat this weekly Critics Consensus column to focus on titles that are newly available on the home entertainment market. With that in mind, our list of digital new releases this week includes a fresh-from-the-theaters Pixar movie, the latest Star Wars adventure, a Razzie-winning Broadway adaptation, and a trio of brand new theatrical releases that are being made digitally available way ahead of schedule. See below for the most notable titles hitting VOD this week.
King of the New Crop: Ralph Drops, But Remains On Top – And on Pace to Pass the Original(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)Ralph Breaks the Internet had a near record-setting Thanksgiving. (We won’t get into the semantics over Frozen again.) And it is on top again this weekend with .8 million. With 9 million in the bank after 12 days, that puts it on par with both Moana and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, when it comes to November releases, which each had between 9 and 0 million at this point in their runs. Moana made .2 million in its post-Thanksgiving weekend and went on to make over 8 million. Ralph is in a similarly favorable position, though with nothing to challenge it next week. (Moana beat Office Christmas Party .5-to-.8 million in week three.) Barring some extreme drop-off, Ralph Breaks the Internet could still best Wreck-It Ralph’s 9 million finish. That film had 1 million by Day 12. The sequel’s worldwide haul is at 6 million.Rotten Returns: Horror Film Hannah Goes Mostly Ignored (Photo by © Screen Gems )The Possession of Hannah Grace (formerly titled, Cadaver – nice!) may have only cost .5 million, but a .5 million start for the film and a 17% on the Tomatometer is not going to put it into sleeper or surprise hit territory. That opening puts it just ahead of past November openers, Bad Santa 2 and Babe: Pig in the City, which finished with .7 million and .3 million, respectively. A finish like that won’t be enough to cover Hannah’s minuscule budget (when you factor in marketing) but it is also nowhere near the losses of Sony’s The Girl in the Spider’s Web, which is looking to be the studio’s biggest disappointment of the year. Good thing it has the 100% Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse just around the corner.The Top 10 and Beyond: Fantastic Beasts Passes 0 million globally as Robin Hood Continues to Miss the Mark(Photo by © Warner Bros.)Last week’s honest-to-goodness record breaker, Creed II (a.k.a. the highest live-action Thanksgiving opening ever) is ahead of the pace of 2008 s Four Christmases at the moment, which puts its estimated finishing haul at about 5 million. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is already at 4 million, but that puts it behind the first Twilight film and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa on the 17-day chart; neither of those films hit the 0 million mark. Nevertheless, it is the 15th film this year to pass the half-billion mark at the worldwide box office, with 9 million so far. The next to cross that list will be Bohemian Rhapsody, and if you had bet on it grossing more domestically than Fantastic Beasts this season, you would have broken the bank in Vegas. But that is what s shaping up here with the Queen biopic making 4 million after 31 days and just over million separating them this weekend. Bohemian Rhapsody has a current worldwide total of 3 million.Illumination’s The Grinch is still the current champ of the season and does not look to be challenged until Mary Poppins Returns attempts to claim the crown. It joined the 0 million club on its 24th day, which has actually put it ahead of Ron Howard’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas – that film had 5.6 million by this stage in its run. The lowest-grossing November release to earn 0 million at this point in its run was Justice League, which left theaters with 9 million.

In second place on that list is Anna and the Apocalypse (Certified Fresh at 84%) which made ,163 in five theaters for a decent, if unspectacular, ,033 average. Then Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Shoplifters, which is scoring 99% on the Tomatometer, had the third best average after grossing 6,000 in 14 theaters. 而且《黑暗与光明手游》玩法很肝，在游戏里基本上一些行为都需要消耗资源，比方说时时刻刻要遭受饥饿和口渴的威胁，领地运转也在时刻消耗魔能碎片，同时游戏内还存在四百多种学识系统给玩家研习，玩家学习的学识决定了自己人物的发展方向。因为玩法硬核，所以《黑暗与光明手游》肝上百个小时也仅仅是入门，很耐玩。
