Critics are certainly showing their appreciation for action flick Nobody, lifting the movie to a Certified Fresh Tomatometer score of 80%. That’s an improvement over Ilya Naishuller’s debut film, Hardcore Henry (52%) from 2015. Nobody also bested that film’s opening (.1 million in 3,015 theaters) with an estimated .7 million in 2,460 theaters with limited capacity. (Tom Jerry opened in 2,475 theaters.) That’s the third-best opening of the year to date behind only the family entries of T J and Raya and the Last Dragon. Is this the first good sign that adults (hopefully of the vaccinated variety) are headed back into theaters? The Little Things opened to .7 million on the last weekend in January , while also available on HBO Max. Last summer’s attempt to reopen with Russell Crowe in Unhinged netted a million wide release (1,823 theaters); the movie then slowly made its way to million. It’s going to be interesting to chart the progression of Nobody as new wide releases enter the marketplace almost every week going forward.The Top Ten And Beyond: Raya Holds On As The Courier Expands(Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)After three weeks at number 1, Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon dropped to second place, falling 32% to .5 million for a total of .4 million to date. The year’s top grosser fell to third place, as Tom Jerry took in another .5 million for a total of .1 million. That makes it the 11th-highest-grossing film since the beginning of 2020 and the fourth-highest since the pandemic behind only Tenet, The Croods: A New Age, and Wonder Woman 1984; the latter two are still in the top 10 with The Croods sequel still creeping up on Tenet’s total.After four weeks, the long-delayed Chaos Walking has crept over the million mark after opening to .77 million. That’s a feat unattained by fellow wide March releases that opened between .5-4 million: Slither, Missing In Action II: The Beginning, Boat Trip, Unsane, 3 Strikes, Amos Andrew, and Pride.The Benedict Cumberbatch spy thriller, The Courier, added 208 theaters and fell 48% but still grossed another .04 million for a total of .48 million. That makes it the 32nd highest-grossing release in Roadside Attractions’ history, which – all things considered – is not too shabby. Especially when it will take less than just another million for it to join the company’s top 25.These Dates In Box Office History: Milestones for Logan, Rango, Horton Hears A Who! 当使命召唤手游正式上线后，这款早就备受玩家瞩目的大人气FPS手游在一上线就获得了众多喜爱FPS游戏的玩家们一致的称赞。而这款游戏之所以能获得这样的好评，主要还是因为其丰富多彩的游戏模式。

But a new video chronicling Moon Knight star Isaac’s training for his role as the lead in the upcoming Disney+ Marvel series suggests the titular character may be a real killer, something that could potentially the family friendliness right out of the MCU story.The video reveals some impressive fight moves during Isaac’s training, several sequences of which end with what appears to be throat-slitting knife work. The video was posted to Instagram by Mad Gene Media, the New York–based production company founded by Isaac and Elvira Lind.Whatever Isaac’s character is getting up to in the series, it definitely seems like there’s plenty of action-packed drama ahead … for viewers whose mommies and daddies deem it appropriate viewing, anyway.First Look at the Powerpuff Girls as Women(Photo by James Acomb/The CW)If you were a little underwhelmed last week at the sight of the Powerpuff girls in costume on the set of The CW’s upcoming live-action reboot of the Powerpuff Girls cartoon, we’ve got news and an important update. The literally cartoon-y look of the costumes was intentional; the scenes being filmed were flashbacks to Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup Utonium in action during their teenage years.This week, The CW released the first official photo of Powerpuff stars Chloe Bennet, Dove Cameron, and Yana Perrault as adults, and they’re wearing some colorful, but still all grown up, stylin’ duds. The pilot, in fact, will be largely focused on the women as adults, and their angst about having spent their younger years as world-saving heroines.In other Powerpuff news, Robyn Lively joined the cast as Sara Bellum, the mayor’s assistant, while original series narrator, Tom Kenny, will return as the narrator for the reboot..The Walking Dead: Another Spin-Off Coming, Featuring Negan?With season 10’s finale – the season-best “Here’s Negan” episode of The Walking Dead that featured Jeffrey Dean Morgan and his real-life wife Hilarie Burton playing Negan and his wife Lucille – setting up the inevitable showdown between Negan and Lauren Cohan’s Maggie in TWD’s upcoming final season, fans are facing the end of the line for most TV versions of TWD’s characters.But during Morgan’s appearance on Conan this week, he provided hope for fans of his performance of Negan, confirming to Conan O’Brien that there have been discussions about a spin-off series revolving around the bat-swinging killer who’s trying to redeem himself.“I think they re thinking of a couple different ideas, but I ve definitely had conversations about possibly continuing the story of Negan,” Morgan said.(Photo by AMC)Future TWD projects already announced include a spin-off starring BFFs Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) and a series of movies featuring the return of Andy Lincoln as Rick Grimes.And speaking of Rick, who disappeared from the series when Lincoln left the series, but was killed off in the comic book, he’s going to be resurrected for a special issue of the book.Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman announced this week he’ll celebrate the 10th anniversary of his company Skybound with a five-issue, limited edition comic book series called Skybound X, with one non-canonical issue featuring Rick Grimes and revisiting a bonus ending story from the comics (issue #75) that revealed aliens to have a hand in the zombie apocalypse.NEW TRAILERS: Barry Jenkins’ The Underground Railroad: What If It Really Was an Actual Railroad?The Underground Railroad is Oscar-winning director Barry Jenkins’ moving series that imagines an alternate timeline in which the network of abolitionists is an actual railroad, based on Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

The Game of Thrones will star in and executive produce The Second Home, a series adaptation of author Christina Clancy’s debut novel of the same name. The story follows the Gordon and Shaw families, and the two generations of the families whose lives are unraveled by a secret that began during a fateful summer in Cape Cod. No network is yet attached to the series.

Rotten Returns: The Grudge Becomes Latest Reboot to Flounder at Box Office(Photo by Allen Fraser / © Screen Gems)Sony’s The Grudge reboot earns its place here not because it may be a big financial loser – the budget is reportedly only million – but because there were clearly bigger hopes even than the - million projections it had. Also going into this weekend it had a strong .8 million in Thursday previews. But with just .3 million, the movie s first-weekend haul ranks as the worst weekend total for a January release with previews over million. The previous low was Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’s .6 million; the second-lowest was last year’s Escape Room (.23 million). The Grudge’s number is also on the low-end of attempted franchise reboots, but still ahead of 2019’s Hellboy (.04 million), 2011’s Conan the Barbarian (.02 million), 2016’s Blair Witch (.57 million), and 2019’s Charlie’s Angels (.35 million). Those films all had final gross multiples between 1.81 and 2.17. 2019’s Child’s Play opened to .09 million and finished with just .20 million, a multiple of just 2.07. That would put The Grudge on pace for a final tally between million and million, which would be less than Rings finished with in 2017.The Top 10 and Beyond: Frozen II Becomes Biggest Animated Film Ever, Knives Out Continues Killer Run Sony did not have much luck with The Grudge this weekend but their other films are doing quite well. Jumanji: The Next Level may be million off Welcome to the Jungle’s pace after 24 days (2.22 million), but it is right behind it on the all-time December chart – 10th place in fact – at this period, well outpacing the last two Hobbit films, which finished with 5 and 8 million, respectively. All the films above The Next Level on the 24-day list grossed over 0 million. Only Titanic and The Fellowship of the Ring had grossed less at this point and went over the milestone. The Next Level’s million weekend is almost identical to Welcome to the Jungle’s fourth weekend and is the fifth-best weekend four for a December release ever, nearly million higher than even the first Lord of the Rings film.Greta Gerwig’s Little Women is hoping to just get that first 0 million and it took a solid step this week. Only one film has ever opened in December, reached million in 12 days, and failed to make it to 0 million (that would be 2008 s Valkyrie). Little Women just reached .5 million. Though its .57 million is on the lower end of the 12-day releases that grossed between - million, it is just over a week away from a likely slew of Oscar nominations that will no doubt boost its profile as one of the films to see over the next five weeks.Over on the animated front, Disney’s Frozen II continues to trend up the charts. The sequel is about to cross 0 million with another .29 million added this weekend. But more importantly, it has just crossed .32 billion, million more than the first film, which now makes it the highest-grossing animated film ever. With another million, it will pass Avengers: Age of Ultron and enter the top 10 movies of all time. Fox’s Spies in Disguise is not going to get anywhere near those numbers. What it is near are the numbers for The Adventures of Tintin, which had .47 million after 12 days following a .43 million second weekend; Spies is up to .72 million after an .08 million weekend. Tintin finished with .59 million, which would not be a great number for the 0 million production.Two of the great box office stories of the season are also still playing out. Rian Johnson’s Knives Out just crossed 0 million and is going to pass Once Upon a Time In Hollywood to become the second-highest grossing original film of the year. (Jordan Peele’s Us is number 1.) A total of 0 million is not out of the realm of possibility and 0 million globally is inevitable. Also doing great is Josh and Benny Safdie’s Uncut Gems. The Adam Sandler thriller grossed .4 million in its second week of wide release for a total of .48 million. It is behind just Lady Bird (.95 million) and Hereditary (.06 million) on A24’s all-time chart and soon it will become their highest-grossing film in their seven-year history.This Time Last Year: Aquaman Rules For a Third Weekend(Photo by © Warner Bros.)James Wan’s Aquaman led the way for a third straight week with million, driving its total to over 0 million. As with this week, a horror film was the sole new release to kick off the New Year and a new franchise may have been born with Escape Room: It finished second with .23 million and its sequel is due out this August. The top five was rounded out by Mary Poppins Returns (.86 million), Bumblebee (.20 million), and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (.12 million). The top 10 films grossed a total of 9 million, which was the best three-day weekend total of 2019 for the next eight weeks until Captain Marvel gave the box office a boost on March 8. The films averaged 66.4% on the Tomatometer. This year’s top 10 grossed an estimated 9.68 million and averaged 66.6% with critics.On the Vine: One-Shot WWI Thriller 1917 Goes Wide and Could Unseat SkywalkerA loaded January weekend is likely to be led by one of two expansions. Sam Mendes’ 1917 has been doing solid business in limited release and should take the number 1 spot from not just its new challengers but from Star Wars as well. Just Mercy is also headed into wide release and may draw some pre-awards interest. Brand-new 2020 releases include the sci-fi horror film, Underwater, with Kristen Stewart, which is hoping to draw more interest than Charlie’s Angels did. Then there is the comedy, Like a Boss, with Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne, and Salma Hayek. Finally, 2019 layover, The Informer, with Joel Kinnaman will get a limited release after moving around on the schedule.The Full Top 10: January 3-5Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) 52% – .74 million (0.77 million total)Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) 71% – .5 million (6.21 million total)Little Women (2019) 95% – .56 million (.02 million total)The Grudge (2020) 21% – .3 million (.3 million total)Frozen II (2019) 78% – .29 million (9.88 million total)Spies in Disguise (2019) 77% – .08 million (.73 million total)Knives Out (2019) 97% – .03 million (0.26 million total)Uncut Gems (2019) 91% – .83 million (.81 million total)Bombshell (2019) 68% – .08 million (.67 million total)Cats (2019) 20% – .6 million (.69 million total)

Director Dan Gilroy re-teams with his Nightcrawler stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo for another twisted movie, this time mixing together horror with satire for a gory takedown of the art world. Velvet Buzzsaw, which arrives soon on Netflix, debuted this weekend at Sundance to mostly favorable reviews, which celebrate the camp performances and the execution of a wild premise involving deadly paintings.Here’s what the critics are saying about Velvet Buzzsaw:How would one describe Velvet Buzzsaw?A high-end Final Destination… best viewed as pure horror camp. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsA slasher movie with something to say. Matt Goldberg, ColliderA tarted-up throwback to a certain kind of trashy ’70s horror movie — a la Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? or Theater of Blood. Peter Debruge, VarietyIt’s like Bret Easton Ellis meeting John Carpenter in the bathroom at Art Basel. Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment WeeklyA work of art in its own right. You’ve never seen anything quite like Velvet Buzzsaw. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmNothing if not unique, it’s an utterly bizarre film that could only have ever been made for a streamer like Netflix. Chris Bumbray, JoBlo s Movie EmporiumVelvet Buzzsaw is certainly unlike anything else you’re going to see this year on Netflix or any other streaming service. Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.comThis is a film that can’t be described. It simply has to be experienced for all the senses. Karen M. Peterson, AwardsCircuit.com(Photo by Netflix)But is it any good?Velvet Buzzsaw is a blast from start to finish. Matt Goldberg, ColliderThis movie is so preposterous, so profoundly weird, just hilarious and merciless and black-hearted from beginning to end. Meredith Borders, Bloody DisgustingVelvet is fun and silly and enjoyably outrageous. Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment WeeklyThe sillier and bloodier it gets, the better. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsThere’s some kind of poetry to [what] he’s made here: a trashy thriller set in the world of high art. Dan Mecca, The Film StageEvery element combines to make this a polished, glossy film that feels as expensive as the creations within it. Karen M. Peterson, AwardsCircuit.comEven if Velvet Buzzsaw starts to sputter slightly after it’s made its point, it’s plenty exciting to witness the incredibly specific madness they whip up together. Emily Yoshida, VultureIt’s all somewhat amusing but rather arch. Todd McCarthy, Hollywood ReporterGilroy’s film needed to be 60% better or 20% worse in order to transcend the forgettable silliness of its existence. Dave Ehrlich, IndieWireFor lack of a better descriptor, the whole thing is a mess. Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist(Photo by Netflix)How does it compare to Nightcrawler?[It’s] a fitting companion piece to Nightcrawler. Peter Debruge, VarietyIt’s missing the weight of Nightcrawler, but that feels right. Meredith Borders, Bloody DisgustingVelvet Buzzsaw, as gleaming and sun-drenched as Nightcrawler is dark, is even more of an invective, and even more operatically heightened. Emily Yoshida, VultureVelvet Buzzsaw is worlds removed from Nightcrawler. While Nightcrawler was going for cerebral thrills, Velvet Buzzsaw is trafficking in gore-soaked comedy. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmHow is Jake Gyllenhaal s performance?There’s never a moment when he’s not chewing scenery, but it works for the vibe of the film. Chris Bumbray, JoBlo s Movie Emporium[He’s] relishing another of those cartoonishly camp performances he’s increasingly drawn to in his middle age. Peter Debruge, VarietyGyllenhaal, who continues his transformation into full-blown quirky character actor, is a hoot. Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm[It’s ] a performance so big that it might not be able to fit on the screen of your iPhone. Dave Ehrlich, IndieWireDoes anyone else stand out?Every single performance is hilarious and memorable. Meredith Borders, Bloody DisgustingJohn Malkovich also shows up in an enjoyable cameo. Anthony Kaufman, Screen International(Photo by Netflix)What else can we look forward to?Velvet Buzzsaw is a terrific-looking film, with striking interiors and city vistas. Meredith Borders, Bloody DisgustingThe costumes are delightful and come to life in Robert Elswit’s art pop light. Dave Ehrlich, IndieWireCostume designers Trish Summerville and Isis Mussenden provide some inspired ensembles. Gregory Ellwood, The PlaylistIsis Mussenden and Trish Summerville’s nouveau-fashion costumes and James D. Bissell’s elaborate production design also help to create a full-scale and highly detailed send-up of the film’s high-brow milieu. Anthony Kaufman, Screen InternationalIt’s also an ambitious piece of work with unforgettable imagery and an ace ensemble. Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.comGyllenhaal’s Morf enters some kind of pantheon of quotably absurd characters alongside, say, Christopher Guest in Waiting for Guffman and all the Heathers. Emily Yoshida, VultureIs the satire effective?I would ve preferred a much stronger take from Gilroy than what we get here. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsVelvet Buzzsaw would have been more effective as pure satire, as Gilroy doesn’t seem to have an affinity for the [horror] genre. Chris Bumbray, JoBlo s Movie EmporiumIt’s all very low common denominator humor centered on art world cliches. Gregory Ellwood, The PlaylistThere’s nothing lampooned here that we haven’t already seen before. Anthony Kaufman, Screen InternationalIf this movie tried to carry itself as a highbrow critique, it would be far more difficult to appreciate Gilroy’s point of view. Matt Goldberg, ColliderSuch fangless satire suggests that Gilroy is either unfamiliar with the art world, or loves it too much to dig any deeper. Dave Ehrlich, IndieWireWould a smarter film with more of a message be better? Maybe, but it probably wouldn’t be this off-the-wall, and what a tragedy that would be. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmIs it still a good horror movie?[There’s] insane gore and even supernatural horror… once his paintings start, well, literally killing people, it becomes a full-blown riot. Meredith Borders, Bloody DisgustingVelvet Buzzsaw is unabashedly supernatural in its horror, with mixed results. Emily Yoshida, VultureIt’s a horror show that lacks broader social commentary; a handful of bloody murders and occasional jump-scares, with the occasional astute one-liner. Anthony Kaufman, Screen InternationalVelvet Buzzsaw streams on Netflix beginning on February 1.
ith us in South Africa. Gaiman told Rotten Tomatoes the day before that the series will not necessarily be a carbon copy of his book; in fact, he wants to mess with book readers. I wanted to make the people who loved the book really happy, but I also wanted to f with their heads,” Gaiman said. I wanted to make sure that even if you’d read the book and you know how plot A, B, and C are going to turn out, you do not know. There’s plot D that you don’t know about, and it’s going to become very important, and you cannot take anything for granted.”(Photo by Amazon)Gaiman’s story of angels and demons has a unique look worthy of Gaiman’s words. You can probably spot the references and homages to other artists, all adding up to something new. The more obvious ones are Monty Python, director and EP Mackinnon said. Good Omens has got its own style. The tone is it has no tone. We want to make it look epic and glorious and wonderful and warm. There are homages to Doctor Who, Terry Gilliam. Even the opening titles will mix and match fantasy artists, said Gaiman. Our opening title sequence manages to somehow evoke both Terry Gilliam, Edward Gorey, and Hieronymus Bosch. [We] somehow do that while being an animated 90-second opening sequence. Part of the weirdest thing about Good Omens is its style is no style. It’s whatever we needed to make that scene or sequence work, we do. Because the book includes so many things and does so many different kinds of things, we felt we were allowed to do that.”Will Peter Jackson Be Involved in Amazon s Lord of the Rings Series?“I wisely started with a map” — J.R.R. Tolkien The Lord of the Rings on Prime (@LOTRonPrime) February 13, 2019Amazon previously announced its plans for an epic Lord of the Rings TV series, a five-season show about the adventures of Young Aragorn, but there s still no word on whether LOTR big-screen master Peter Jackson will be involved in the show. They do know one thing: he s not mad about it.“There hasn’t been any negativity around it,” Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke said. “We just don’t have any news on that yet and what his involvement may be.”The series is moving along, however, with writers on board and now some social handles. It might not have actually started filming yet, but if you can t wait for its eventual premiere you can follow it on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram (where hopefully Amazon will release some news very soon).Joe and Anthony Russo to Direct English Version of Giant International EffortAmazon also released a bit more info on Joe and Anthony Russo s sprawling, international project: The brothers will produce and direct a flagship English-language series, but Amazon will produce spin-offs in other countries in their own language. The first two will come from India and Italy.“Those shows will be under the umbrella of the Russos and creative team but have their own local team of creators and writers executing those shows,” Salke said. “We just think that soon there’s a world that these hit shows can come from anywhere. They can break through and come from countries where English is not the language.”Help Wanted: Homecoming Season 2 Looking for Julia Roberts–Sized StarNow that Homecoming season 2 is a go — and star Julia Roberts has said she will not return — the hunt is on for a star as A-list as Roberts was in season 1.“There’s an opportunity for a star role in it, and there’s a list that’s being discussed with producers about what the strategy is moving forward on that,” Salke said. Roberts will stay on board as a producer, however.The Expanse Fans, Rejoice! Season 4 Arrives This YearFinally, the fourth season of fan-favorite space series The Expanse, which Amazon rescued from Syfy, should hit Amazon later this year.“We are working toward having that new season before the end of the year,” said Vernon Sanders, co-head of TV for Amazon. “We’ll have a specific date in the future but we’re aiming for that show to come out before 2019 is over. “How The Boys Will Handle Its NSFW MomentsAmazon Prime Video s new superhero series, The Boys, doesn t actually follow the superheroes that exist in its world — it follows a group of vigilantes out for justice for the damage the arrogant superheroes cause. It s definitely not a series for kids — as evidenced by the fact that R-rated producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (who are also behind AMC s Preacher) are on board.Showrunner Eric Kripke admitted that his source material is definitely controversial. The comic book is incendiary in its material. There s a ton of really shocking s . Frankly, there s a lot of stuff in the comic that, if I m being honest, we would not do in the show. But it s a really irreverent, really edgy show, he told reporters at TCA.But from the beginning, he and his fellow executive producers wanted to make sure the show was more of a character study than anything else. You have to take the world very, very seriously, and you have to have fleshed-out people that have hearts, he said. We have to tell stories about really what it is to be human, and [we knew] that if we took it very, very seriously then the irreverence wouldn t be for shock value it would be to further the character. And so for us it was always, like, if something in the comic doesn t further a character we cut it. But if there was something in the comic or an idea we had that was crazy, but it told us a new aspect of who that character was and did it with integrity, then yeah. Preacher s a crazy show, and we want to be a boundary-pushing show too, but we want to do it the right way. How Transparent Season 5 Became a Movie-Musical(Photo by Amazon)Why transform Transparent’s final season into a musical movie instead of a serialized TV series? Well, that s originally how creator Jill Soloway envisioned their show. Soloway and her sister thought they d make a documentary musical about their parent s transition, and Soloway s sister was already busy writing songs for a potential future stage musical, so after star Jeffrey Tambor s departure, they decided to pivot.“When everything went down last year, and we lost Jeffrey Tambor, we went through so much as a family that felt like this very emotional, there are no words,” Soloway said. “There is no way to just go back to a plain old season 5 and just repair by going back.”Amazon Prime Video boss Salke said she was on board with Soloway s idea because she trusted the creator s instinct and wanted to make sure there was closure for fans. I think for us, we would never have wanted to take a special incredible show like that and just end it unceremoniously, Salke said. It was Jill’s idea to do a musical movie. We signed off on that idea trusting her that she would come up with something incredible, which she did. [The execs] sat in the front row of a musical run-through of this movie where we were crying. It is really special. It brings the whole thing full circle at the end. It does everything that you would want it to do.”In Development: The Hunt From Jordan Peele, The Power Based on the British Book, and Literary Classic Brave New World Three new series are officially in the works at major streaming services and networks. First is Amazon Prime Video s The Hunt, from Jordan Peele and starring Al Pacino, Logan Lerman, and Jerrika Hinton, which follows a group of Nazi hunters in 1977 in New York City.Next is Amazon s The Power, which is a contemporary global ten-part thriller based on the book of the same name by British author Naomi Alderman, was written and created by Alderman and features The Handmaid s Tale s Reed Morano as director and executive producer. The story takes place in the contemporary world, but suddenly all teenage girls in the world develop the power to electrocute people at will. Filming will take place around the world as the story follows characters from London to Arizona, Nigeria to Moldova, reversing the power balance of the world.Finally, USA has greenlit a series based on Aldous Huxley s classic novel Brave New World, about a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.
While its tone and opening scene are reminiscent of Wes Craven s self-aware masterpiece Scream, Fear Street: 1994 s Skull Mask killer screams John Carpenter s Halloween for the rest of the movie.Michael Myers is perhaps the archetypical silent killer in horror slashers: able to sneak in and out of places without being detected, frequently staring straight at his victims from a distance. In Fear Street, we see the Skull Mask killer stalk the main characters from outside their homes, ominously standing in the middle of the street and staring silently. The moment one character realizes what s happening and turns around, the killer has already disappeared. The film also borrows from Halloween II later in the story, right down to a few of the jump scares.

From Lorraine Broughton in Atomic Blonde and Letty Ortiz in the Fast and Furious franchise to Lucy in Lucy and Milla Jovovich’s Leeloo in The Fifth Element, women have been steadily kicking their way to center stage in a genre that once mostly excluded them. These characters have very little in common on the surface – their story motivations don’t overlap and they come from all walks of life. But they are all connected by the way they are depicted on screen. The women are all physically strong, whizzes with weapons, or both; every one of them has a rousing “girl power” fight scene that drives home their physical prowess. The “power” is the key. Instead of becoming an expanded avenue for female characters to flourish, the action genre has become a place where female characterization often goes to die. Combat skills have become a handy shortcut for films to skimp on true character development for the women in their story. Rather than learning about these women’s inner lives or motivations, we watch with glee as they raze through scene after scene of dangerous (nearly always male) thugs, and enjoy the minor thrill of seeing them act just like one of the boys. After all, if a female character lands enough punches, it can be easy to miss that she isn’t adding much depth to the story. This lazy narrative trick has meant that instead of getting character arcs, women have just been getting bigger and better guns. But there are other possibilities, and we’re finally starting to see them onscreen.(Photo by © Marvel / courtesy Everett Collection)Female-led action films of the last five years have started showing that empathy is also an integral part of the heroic scaffolding. It’s noteworthy that by combining physical and emotional strength, films like Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, and Mad Max: Fury Road, demonstrate that women do not have to be emotional vacuums in order to live up to their heroic ideals.In 2019’s Captain Marvel, the title hero spends most of the film being gaslit by her mentor. After absorbing an unimaginable cosmic power and being kidnapped by the Kree, Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is turned into a weapon for the galaxy’s villains against her will, and without her memory, she doesn’t know her own power. In the film’s final confrontation, her mentor turned nemesis, Yon-Rogg (Jude Law) attempts to bait her into a fistfight, but she merely blasts him off his feet instead. She has nothing to prove. Over the course of the film’s run time she has learned that her physical strength and otherworldly abilities are not what make her valuable. Her true skill is in valuing the dignity of human life and a willingness to right the wrongs of her past.(Photo by © Marvel / courtesy Everett Collection)Danvers’ narrative arc may feel unfinished to some, but what it succeeds in doing is showing that physical and emotional strength do not have to be mutually exclusive traits. As she regains her memory, Danvers must come to terms with the fact that she has been fighting on the wrong side of a colonial war, and her innate goodness is what propels her to defect to the side of the righteous. Though the story makes clear that she is possibly the singular most physically powerful being in the universe, it also takes the time to highlight that her emotions also bring her power. Her rage, love, and desire to be good make her physical power stronger and more lethal, feeding into her ability to protect the people who deserve it.What makes Captain Marvel such an interesting example of the modern action hero is that part of the villain’s plan is to get her to repress her emotional side. Danvers is outfitted with an inhibitor chip meant to suppress her powers, and she is repeatedly told that in order to master them, she must release herself from emotional complications. It’s a direct engagement with the idea that feelings make women weak or less capable, and that’s what makes it all the more satisfying when her embrace of her full emotional range allows her to access the true extent of her power.Cate YoungPatty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman similarly makes empathy a central part of its title character’s arc. Diana of Themyscira (Gal Gadot) is driven directly by her innate need to protect and defend the powerless. The very purpose of the Amazons – the powerful all-female tribe to which Diana belongs – is to protect mankind from the jealous god Ares. When fighter pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) washes up on the shores of her idyllic nation and tells the Amazons about a war that is ravaging the world, Diana feels obligated to intervene on behalf of humankind. Her purpose is to defend the helpless and ensure peace. Throughout the film, Jenkins takes great pains to display and demonstrate Diana’s empathy. The famous No Man’s Land scene shows just how strongly Diana can draw from her emotions to effect real change. In the scene, Diana faces a violent threat directly, and acts in service of her empathy for the war’s victims, defeating an enemy and saving a town. The moment is the film’s best action scene, and it works so well because the audience understands Diana’s empathetic motivations.(Photo by ©Warner Bros./courtesy Everett Collection)Later, in the movie s finale, Diana s finding the strength to defeat Ares by drawing on her love for Steve could have played out as cliché, but it falls completely in line with the actions of an empathetic hero. With her hopes dashed and her belief shattered by Ares, it makes sense that Diana’s access to love, empathy, and a true belief in righteousness would be the thing that allows her to access her true power as Zeus’s “Godkiller.”In Ares’ view, the only way to save the world is to rid it of humankind. But it is Diana’s radical empathy that allows her to see that people have a great potential for goodness, and deserve the chance to right their wrongs. This realization springs from her fundamentally different perspective on the inherent nature of people. People have the ability to be good or bad, but she chose to believe that given the chance, they would turn towards goodness. It’s a belief that’s rooted not just in the lore of Wonder Woman herself, but in the idea that people are not disposable. Wonder Woman was an excellent example of what a hero can be capable of when they access their full emotional capacity. (Photo by ©Warner Bros./Courtesy Everett Collection)In Mad Max: Fury Road, Imperator Furiosa’s (Charlize Theron) motivation is rooted in her empathy for Immortan Joe’s five wives. The film also tackles larger themes of environmental pillage and economic scarcity. Furiosa’s decision to steal the women away and bring them to what she believes is a land of plenty, is a firm outgrowth of her understanding of the need for human dignity. Before the events of the film’s central conflict, Furiosa is a valued servant in Immortan’s vast empire, in good standing with his stifling world order. But the clear injustice of his treatment of not just women, but the very earth he stands on, prompts her to act. Furiousa risks her life and Immortan’s wrath by leaving with his prized “broodmares,” but the danger she chooses to face is a direct reflection of her rejection of his world view. In this barren hellscape, women exist to be pumped for milk or to give birth to heirs. But Furiosa remembers a time when resources were plentiful and women were ushers of new life instead of prisoners to its arrival.(Photo by ©Warner Bros./Courtesy Everett Collection)Her quest to save the Wives is an act born out of revenge, but also a sincerely generous and selfless impulse. There is nothing that the Wives can give her. Their presence is functionally a burden on her ability to survive. But she saves them anyway, because they are slaves to Immortan’s whims and she knows that no one deserves to be treated like an object or plaything. In turn, the Wives reflect this impulse over the course of their journey with her, saving the life of a War Boy, and protecting Furiosa from Immortan’s bullets when he begins his pursuit.The Vuvalini, or Many Mothers, who meet up with Furiosa and the Wives in the Green Place, are a group of mostly older women who guard the few remaining seeds with the potential for growth. Instead of a vibrant, flowering paradise, Furiosa finds that the utopia she had hoped to share with the Wives has been decimated by Immortan’s far-reaching neglect – the land of plenty is no more.(Photo by Jasin Boland/©Warner Bros./Courtesy Everett Collection)Rather than stealing away with this new team of female survivors, Furiosa turns them around and heads back to the Citadel, the very place from which they escaped.. With Immortan distracted, she retakes his fortress, freeing not just the Wives, but all the other people left starving and mistreated by his hoarding of resources.This eventual revolution would never have happened if not for Furiosa’s brave actions and her desire to seek revenge on Immortan Joe. Without the calculated risks she took and the help of the newly freed Wives and noble Vuvalini, the wasteland they called home would have remained under the iron fist of a dictator. A simple empathetic impulse – to save the Wives from sexual bondage – led to the freedom of an entire society. Furiosa has no super powers or special abilities, but her empathy influenced her actions, and her actions liberated a city.(Photo by ©Netflix / Courtesy: Everett Collection)Furiosa, Diana, and Carol’s empathetic strength may make them compelling, even iconic action heroines, but they’re complexity is not the norm in Hollywood. Actress and filmmaker Brit Marling succinctly explained the problem of female “strength” in film in a New York Times op-ed earlier this year: “It would be hard to deny that there is nutrition to be drawn from any narrative that gives women agency and voice in a world where they are most often without both. But the more I acted the Strong Female Lead, the more I became aware of the narrow specificity of the characters’ strengths – physical prowess, linear ambition, focused rationality. Masculine modalities of power. [ ] Because what we really mean when we say we want strong female leads is: Give me a man but in the body of a woman I still want to see naked.' (Photo by ©TriStar Pictures/ Courtesy: Everett Collection)There’s nothing wrong with female characters being physically strong. Some of the most iconic women of cinema are iconic specifically because they were allowed to be physically strong when women’s strength was a novelty. Characters like Terminator 2’s Sarah Connor, G.I. Jane’s Jordan O’Neil, Underworld’s Selene, Kill Bill’s Bride, and Resident Evil’s Alice broke boundaries by showing that women could be more than the damsel in distress. But the tendency to ignore the real value of more traditionally feminine modes of power means that we effectively erase them from existence. When our cultural scripts equate strength with brawn, we ignore the important ways emotional intelligence and empathy play a role in how we interact with each other. Movies are their own kind of cultural record, and it’s important to inscribe women’s emotion into our history. The action hero is a perfect opportunity to do just that.
Even as we enter the final month of 2018, superhero movies continue to draw massive interest, with a member of DC s Justice League and an alternate version of a Marvel icon topping the list of Decembers most anticipated movies. If you count the Transformers prequel about a certain VW Beetle and Disney s decades-later sequel to a celebrated classic, then fantastical tales about extraordinary individuals comprise the top four. Toss in a couple of real-life based dramas that tied for the fifth spot, and you ve got a pretty hefty holiday movie season to look forward to. With that in mind, read on for the Most Anticipated Movies of December!1. Aquaman (2018) 65%(Photo by Warner Bros.)10,107 Want-to-See Votes#1 pick by our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter fansOpens December 21How do you make a superhero who talks to fish and wears orange spandex cool? Cast Jason Khal Drogo Momoa in the role, surround him with people like Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, and Amber Heard, and put the man behind the Conjuring universe in the director s chair. James Wan s origin story about DC s reluctant Atlantean king ranked #1 across all of our social polls and garnered the most Want-to-See votes on RT of any December movie by a wide margin. Aquaman looks primed to rule the box office when it opens right before Christmas, but it ll face some stiff competition from a few other movies on this list.Watch Trailer2. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) 97%(Photo by Sony Pictures Animation)1,183 Want-to-See Votes#2 pick by our Instagram and Twitter fans, #3 pick by our Facebook fansOpens December 14We ve already gotten three different versions of Peter Parker since the superhero movie boom of the 2000s, but we ve never seen Miles Morales on the big screen, and if early reviews are any indication, Into the Spider-Verse could be one of the best Spider-Man movies yet. Produced by The Lego Movie and Jump Street franchise s Phil Lord and Chris Miller (and co-written by Lord), Sony s animated film made believers out of skeptics with the first trailer, which showcased a unique, vibrant art style with a beating heart at its center. Considering almost all the reviews thus far have been raves, this one looks like a crowd-pleaser.Watch Trailer3. Bumblebee (2018) 90%(Photo by Paramount Pictures) 793 Want-to-See Votes#2 pick by our Facebook fans, #3 pick by our Instagram fans, #4 pick by our Twitter fansOpens December 21The Transformers franchise has never performed very well with critics (the first film in 2007 is the Freshest at 58% on the Tomatometer), but it has raked in over billion at the box office. With that in mind, this month s Bumblebee represents a break from formula: It s a prequel set during the 1980s and centered on just one of the characters, and it s directed by someone other than Michael Bay (namely Travis Knight). Hailee Steinfeld stars as the human companion this time around, and instead of the more futuristic designs we ve seen in the franchise thus far, we get robots that more closely resemble the classic Transformers from the TV series. We ll have to wait and see if the gamble pays off.Watch Trailer4. Mary Poppins Returns (2018) 80%(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)1,149 Want-to-See Votes#3 pick by our Twitter fansOpens December 19The latest in Disney s efforts to remake, reimagine, or otherwise reintroduce classic films from their extensive library comes in the form of a sequel to 1964 s Mary Poppins. The magical nanny formerly played by Julie Andrews is replaced by Emily Blunt, who returns to Cherry Tree Lane to teach timely lessons to the children of the now grown-up Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw). This one only cracked the top five in our Twitter poll, but it also earned the third most Want-to-See votes on RT.Watch Trailer5a. Mary Queen of Scots (2018) 62%(Photo by Liam Daniel/Focus Features)552 Want-to-See Votes#5 pick by our Facebook and Instagram fansOpens December 7Like last month, two films tied for the fifth spot on our Most Anticipated list, and in this case, they re both political dramas based on true events. The first is this look at the life of Mary Stuart (Saoirse Ronan), the young Queen of France who returns to her native Scotland just as the country comes under the rule of Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), setting off a fierce rivalry with consequences that will echo through history. Mary Queen of Scots managed to sneak in at fifth in both our Facebook and Instagram polls and earned the fifth most Want-to-See votes on RT, and judging from early reviews, it s an impressive showcase for the talents of its two leads.Watch Trailer5b. Vice (2018) 65%(Photo by Annapurna Pictures)195 Want-to-See Votes#4 pick by our Instagram fans, #5 pick by our Twitter fansOpens December 25Last but not least, we have Adam McKay s profile of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, chronicling the congressman s rise to power and substantial influence during the George W. Bush administration. The stellar cast includes Christian Bale as Cheney, Sam Rockwell as Bush, Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney, and Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld, just to name a few, and it represents McKay s second foray into more serious material after a string of broad comedies. Though it didn t score many Want-to-See votes, it managed to rank fourth in our Instagram poll and fifth in our Twitter poll.Watch Trailer 与很多端改手游戏不同的是，《天谕》手游并未执著于端游情怀的还原，而是力求以一种全新的面貌去迎接广大年轻玩家，因此在传统MMO的基础上，提出了不少新颖的概念。
This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Deadpool 3, The Suicide Squad, a Spike Lee Viagra musical (yes, really), and a pair of ensemble thrillers.This WEEK S TOP STORYDEADPOOL 3 MOVES FORWARD AT MARVEL STUDIOSRyan FujitaniIt s now been over a year and a half since Disney officially acquired the film and TV properties of the former 20th Century Fox, which included the various Marvel titles that had previously been at Fox, like Fantastic Four and everything-X-Men-related. Although there have been the expected rumors and mentions at San Diego Comic-Con, we hadn t officially heard of any of the Fox/Marvel titles moving forward through the usual development process at Marvel Studios, but we now know which movie has that distinction first. Marvel Studios has officially hired the screenwriting sisters team of Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin (Bob s Burgers, The Great North) to start work on the Deadpool 3 screenplay, with Ryan Reynolds attached to reprise his role as the merc with a mouth. Reportedly, Marvel has been meeting with writers pitching their Deadpool 3 ideas for about a month, with the Molyneux sisters eventually pitching the perfect fit [Marvel] wanted. Although no premise has been announced yet, the character might be the best choice of all the Fox titles to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe first because of his frequent ability to break the fourth wall, both in the comics and in the movies (as in, he might be the character most aware of possible alternate realities, a la Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse). It s not yet known if other Deadpool 2 co-stars like Zazie Beetz as Domino or Josh Brolin as Cable might also appear in Deadpool 3, or whether, for example, anyone in the MCU might notice how much Cable looks like Thanos. There is no release date for Deadpool 3, but given the various COVID-19-related delays, it probably won t be until sometime in 2023 or 2024 at the earliest.Other Top Headlines1. LADY GAGA WILL BOOK A SEAT ON BRAD PITT S BULLET TRAIN(Photo by Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/Getty Images)Brad Pitt has been attached for a while now to star in the action thriller Bullet Train (based on the 2010 Japanese novel Maria Beetle) for Sony Pictures, but this week, the film s cast expanded quite a bit, revealing it might be similar in style to 1970s ensemble disaster movies like Airport and The Towering Inferno. The latest addition to Bullet Train is singer-turned-actress Lady Gaga, who is probably the biggest star of the group added this week, but she s expected to have a smaller supporting role. Deadpool 2 star Zazie Beetz also joined the cast, but likewise, her role isn t known. Another superhero movie co-star, Michael Shannon (Man of Steel), also joined Bullet Train this week. Finally, there s also TV s Masi Oka (Heroes, Hawaii-Five-0), likewise in an unknown role. Other members of the Bullet Train ensemble will include Logan Lerman, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Marvel s Quicksilver), Brian Tyree Henry (from Atlanta, as is Zazie Beetz), and Andrew Koji (Storm Shadow in the upcoming Snake Eyes movie). Bullet Train will be directed by David Leitch, who s coming off a hot streak that includes Atomic Blonde (Certified Fresh at 78%), Deadpool 2 (Certified Fresh at 84%), and Fast Furious Presents: Hobbs Shaw (Fresh at 67%).2. HE GOT GAME: SPIKE LEE TO DIRECT VIAGRA MUSICAL(Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)First discovered in 1989 as a possible treatment for chest pain, Pfizer introduced the prescription drug sildenafil under the brand name Viagra in 1998 as a medication to treat erectile dysfunction in men. It may have been inevitable that we would eventually get a movie about the invention of Viagra, but few could have guessed that when we did, it would be a musical co-written and directed by Spike Lee. Lee will adapt the screenplay with screenwriter Kwame Kwei-Armah (TV s Walter s War, Elmina s Kitchen) from the 2018 Esquire article All Rise: The Untold Story of The Guys Who Launched Viagra (which you can read right here). (One reason the musical might currently be untitled is that the title All Rise was recently taken by a CBS courtroom drama.) The original songs and music will be written by the team of Stew Stewart and Heidi Rodewald, the creators of the rock musical Passing Strange. In a statement too long to fully quote here, Lee addressed his excitement about this project by frequently using his Shift key: So Finally Going Into My 4th Decade As A Filmmaker I Will Be Directing A DANCIN’,ALL SINGIN’ MUSICAL Spike Lee Joint And I Can’t Wait. My Moms Has Been Waiting TOO!!! And Dats Da Rodgers And Hammerstein Truth, Ruth. 3. THE MYSTERY GENRE REVIVAL CONTINUES WITH NEW SAOIRSE RONAN MOVIE (Photo by RCF/Everett Collection)Two of 2017 s Best Picture nominees (amid other nominations) at the 90th Annual Academy Awards were Lady Bird and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and this week, two of the stars of those films were announced to star in a new film together. Saoirse Ronan, Sam Rockwell, and David Oyelowo (Selma) have all signed on to star in an untitled murder mystery thriller from Searchlight Pictures to be directed by British TV director Tom George. The movie will be set in 1950s London, where a Hollywood film producer is trying to adapt a popular play until members of the crew start getting murdered, with Rockwell and Ronan playing the cops investigating the crimes. Whatever this movie ends up being titled, it seems easily grouped together with other recent movies like Knives Out and Murder on the Orient Express as part of a whodunit revival, to which we will soon be able to add the Death on the Nile remake, starring Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, and Letitia Wright (Black Panther).4. SYLVESTER STALLONE CONFIRMED FOR THE SUICIDE SQUAD(Photo by Marvel Studios)Although they were only shown together briefly in the film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 featured Sylvester Stallone, Michelle Yeoh, Ving Rhames, and the voice of Miley Cyrus as a team representative of the original 1970s Guardians of the Galaxy team.(It s a long story, but the team we know from the movies with Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, Rocket, et al. wasn t introduced in the comics until 2008.) At the time, it was teased that director James Gunn hoped that Stallone and crew would appear again in a future Marvel Studios movie, but as it turns out, we won t have to wait for that movie to see Stallone in a James Gunn movie. Gunn confirmed on Instagram over the weekend that Sylvester Stallone has joined the cast of the DC Comics soft reboot of The Suicide Squad (8/6/2021), although the nature of his role, which might be fairly minor, wasn t revealed. Stallone is joining a massive ensemble cast that includes John Cena, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Nathan Fillion, Michael Rooker, and of course, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. It s not yet known when James Gunn will be able to start filming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 for Marvel, but with the COVID-19 pandemic delays, it s unlikely the film could be released before 2023.On an Apple device?
