Synopsis: Locals stage re-creations of the town's controversial past.... [More] Starring: Directed By: Robert Greene
(Photo by © Lucasfilm Ltd, Twentieth Century Fox)The arrival of Star Wars: The Bad Batch on May 4 is another step in Star Wars’s growing presence on Disney+. With its offerings on the streamer previously confined to The Mandalorian and the extant feature films and animated series, Lucasfilm stunned fans and investors last December with an ambitious plan to produce as many as 10 television series for Disney+ in the next decade. In addition to its Disney+ roster, the company also intends to make at least three features by 2027.So yes, there is a ton of new Star Wars movies and new Star Wars series flying our way.Of course, fans of Star Wars media already knew the fictional galaxy could fuel hundreds of film and shows. They also hope the expansion of Star Wars content means there will be room for Jedi Knight protagonist Kyle Katarn to re-enter the canon.And canonicity is a big deal for Star Wars. When Disney first bought Lucasfilm, they declared all previous Star Wars comics, novels, games, and cartoons (except for the long-running Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as non-canon legends of the Star Wars galaxy. The move was made to offer maximum freedom to the filmmakers involved in the Sequel Trilogy (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and Rise of Skywalker), but it didn t take long for Legends characters and ideas to seep back into programs like Star Wars Rebels and The Mandalorian. And, as you will see in this guide to Star Wars’s streaming and theatrical future below, those senses of canon and continuity are as important to the galaxy far, far away as the Force itself.Here we ve gathered everything we know about every Star Wars movie and series coming to streaming and theaters in the next few years, and broken down how they fit into the emerging Star Wars galaxy. Tell us which new Star Wars projects you re most excited about in the comments.Disney+ SeriesThe Book Of Boba Fett(Photo by © Lucasfilm Ltd.)Premiere Date: December 2021What We Know: Announced in the closing moments of The Mandalorian’s second season last winter, the program will follow Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) as he reclaims his place in the galactic underworld. Whether or not the the series begins from the scene of him taking over Jabba the Hutt’s old palace, which we saw in The Mandalorian, remains to be seen. Along for the ride is Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), who owes a debt to Fett and whose own story seems to be spread across the various Star Wars shows – she is also scheduled to make an appearance on The Bad Batch (with Wen providing her voice). Behind the camera, El Mariachi director Robert Rodriguez – who directed Fett s full return to Star Wars in a second-season Mandalorian episode – joins executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni as an Executive Producer and creative force in the story. According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, the series will debut in December, although it is possible the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may delay that plan. That said, filming began in November 2020 and seems to have occurred without incident.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As with The Mandalorian, the series will continue to develop the post-Empire galaxy in the era between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. But by focusing its gaze on the criminals, it gets to tell a wholly new story. Although, it is easy to imagine Fett’s old brigade of bounty hunters might stop by to wish him well on his new endeavor.Star Wars Visions(Photo by Lucasfilm Ltd.)Premiere Date: 2021What We Know: The 10-episode anthology series will feature leading Japanese anime studios as they bring a new spin to Star Wars locations and characters.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As this is an anthology concerned with the distinctive styles of the participating animation studios, we’re not sure how it fits or even if it will be canon. With Disney+ uploading non-canon content like the Ewoks TV movies and Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2-D Clone Wars series in recent days, there is room for Visions to ruminate on the ideas of Star Wars without being bound to the state of the galaxy or Lucasfilm s overall plans for ongoing stories. Although, with one of the episodes inspiring author Emma Mieko Candon s upcoming novel, Star Wars Visions: Ronin, the program may yet prove to be a vital part of Star Wars.The Mandalorian: Season 3(Photo by © 2020 Lucasfilm Ltd. All Rights Reserved.)Premiere Date: Early 2022What We Know: Reportedly beginning production in early April, the program will begin a new story as Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) deals with the repercussions of becoming the heir apparent to the throne of Mandalore. Presumably, Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) will not be too thrilled about that development, but will it lead to them fighting for the Darksaber or hashing out some sort of accord? Also, will Djarin finally accept that he must help liberate the planet from the Imperial Remnant? Meanwhile, Grogu begins his training with Luke Skywalker. Although, it is easy to imagine circumstances will lead the Child back to Djarin.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As the flagship show, The Mandalorian still sets the pace in the post-ROTJ galaxy. With Imperial Remnants still working towards some sort of plan to push back the New Republic – and the New Republic trying to create order in the generally lawless Outer Rim – the stage will eventually be set for the weakened Republic glimpsed in the Sequel Trilogy.Andor(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)Premiere Date: 2022What We Know: One of two programs announced for Disney+ before the platform launched – the other being The Mandalorian – Andor has been long in the planning. Finally beginning production in November of 2020, the 12-episode series will star Diego Luna as his Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character, Cassian Andor, in a story set five years before the events of the film. Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller are along for the adventure, as is Genevieve O Reilly as Mon Montha, a key figure in the Rebel Alliance that the actor has played in Star Wars media since a scene cut from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. And although Alan Tudyk was originally meant to reprise his role as K-2SO, the actor revealed in January of 2021 that the droid will not appear in the first season.The series was originally developed by Jared Bush, but Rogue One writer Tony Gilroy is credited as creator. He also serves as showrunner, replacing The Americans’ Stephen Schiff, although his plan to direct the first three episodes was curtailed by the pandemic. Toby Haynes picked up the director chores alongside Ben Caron and Susanna White. Joining Gilroy in the writers’ room is his brother, Dan Gilroy, and House of Cards’ Beau Willimon. Schiff is also still onboard as an episode writer.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Thanks to its place in the timeline – five or so years before the original Star Wars – the program has the opportunity to expose hidden depths within the Rebel Alliance which could set up conflicts in the post-ROTJ era. Also, it could be a chance to establish Star Wars Rebels characters in live action while telling its own story of intrigue and suspense.Obi-Wan Kenobi(Photo by Industrial Light Magic/Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation/Courtesy Everett Collection)Premiere Date: 2022What We Know: Growing out of an abandoned Star Wars Story film, the series sees Ewan McGregor return as Obi-Wan Kenobi, the loyal Jedi sent into exile on Tatooine following the conclusion of the Clone Wars and the Old Republic’s descent into Empire. The cast also includes Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O Shea Jackson Jr., Moses Ingram, Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, Benny Safdie, and Maya Erskine. Edgerton and Piesse reprise their Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clone roles as Owen Lars and Beru Whitsun, although they now serve as guardians to a roughly ten-year-old Luke Skywalker. Also set to return: Prequel Trilogy star Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader.The Mandalorian’s Deborah Chow serves as director and executive producer alongside Kennedy, McGregor, and Tracey Seaward. Joby Harold takes over writing duties from Hossein Amini, who left the project sometime in early 2020. Production on the six-episode limited series is reportedly underway right now.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Set 10 years prior to the original Star Wars film and focusing on a time when everyone presumed Obi-Wan was just meditating in the desert and waiting for Luke to grow up, it may offer some further insights into characters seen on The Book of Boba Fett or glimpsed on The Mandalorian’s various trips to Tatooine. But for longtime fans, the chance to see Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru again may be the program’s biggest gift.Ahsoka(Photo by (c) 2020 Lucasfilm Ltd. TM. All Rights Reserved)Premiere Date: TBDWhat We Know: After her debut in The Mandalorian s second season, Rosario Dawson returns as the live-action version of the Star Wars: Clone Wars fan-favorite character. Although no plot details are as yet available, fans assume the series will pick up from Rebels closing moments with Ahsoka continuing her search for the long-missing Ezra Bridger. That said, it is always possible that journey has ended and Ahsoka s only mission is to track down Grand Admiral Thrawn. It is currently unclear how quickly the series will go into production or who will actually run the program. But considering Filoni’s long association with the character, the program may serve as his first live-action production as showrunner.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: In continuing Ahsoka’s story – and possibly resolving Ezra’s – the program serves as both a cap to her animated adventures and the beginning of a new era for the character. As it happens, her voice is heard toward the end of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, suggesting she is one with the Force by Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) time. Answering how she got there may be part of the show’s mission statement, but we’ll be quite happy if it takes another 10 years to reveal how her physical form meets its final end.Rangers of the New Republic(Photo by © Lucasfilm Ltd.)Premiere Date: TBDWhat We Know: A third new series from Favreau and Filoni – the others being The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka will follow a group of New Republic soldiers in the same era as The Mandalorian. While Kennedy offered few details about this show during a Disney Investor Day presentation in December of 2020, she mentioned it will cross over with other stories from The Mandalorian and Ahsoka to culminate in an “event” at some point in the future. An Avengers-style crossover would be a new thing for Star Wars, so it will be interesting to see how this develops.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As the program is the most mysterious, the crossover seems to be the most tantalizing element. Will the liberation of Mandalore be saved for it? Or will a larger skirmish with the Imperial Remnant prove to be its focus? Also, considering the state of the galaxy in the Sequel Trilogy, did the Rangers mission fail? Definitely a question worth exploring.The Acolyte(Photo by © Lucasfilm)Premiere Date: TBDWhat We Know: The long-in-the-works project from Russian Doll creator Leslye Headland and Lucasfilm story executive Rayne Roberts will focus on a character during the final days of the High Republic – a period roughly a century before the Skywalker Saga – who comes to know shadowy secrets and emerging Dark Side powers. The mystery/thriller series will also reportedly feature a martial arts element, so fans of the Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi video game may finally get a chance to be recognized for their loyalty.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: The High Republic is the current focus of Lucasfilm’s publishing initiatives, so the series will presumably import some of its recently introduced novel and comic book characters to the streaming screen. Also, as the era is a fresh period in Star Wars history, it has the room to create new locales and situations free of the Skywalker Saga or even the galaxy as mapped by Favreau and Filoni.Lando(Photo by © Lucasfilm)Premiere Date: TBDWhat We Know: Dear White People’s Justin Simien is developing a limited series devoted to charismatic card player and scoundrel Lando Calrissian. While it is unclear who will play the title role, a teaser video featuring Lando’s unblemished Millennium Falcon shown during the 2020 Investor Day presentation suggests it will go back to the days before he met Han Solo.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: That all depends on when it takes place. A focus on the older Lando (played by Billy Dee Williams) could follow up on his promise to help Jannah (Naomi Ackie) find her people and offer us the first glimpse of the galaxy following the destruction of the New Republic and the First Order. A series primarily concerned with young Lando (played by Donald Glover) would be less concerned with lore and, potentially, revel in the fun of being a scoundrel. And, then, of course, the program could be about both things at once – a storytelling device Star Wars has yet to really employ in its live-action efforts.MoviesStar Wars: Rogue Squadron(Photo by Clay Enos/©Warner Bros./courtesy Everett Collection)Release Date: December 22, 2023What We Know: First revealed at the 2020 Investor Day presentation, Rogue Squadron will be directed by Wonder Woman s Patty Jenkins and focus on a new generation of X-Wing pilots. In a video posted to her Twitter account, Jenkins revealed the story is personal as her father was a fighter pilot who lost his life in service to his country. She also subsequently clarified that the film will honor the Rogue Squadron video games and novels even as it flies off in its own direction.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: That all depends on when the film takes place. For the moment, we re going to presume Star Wars feature films will continue to move forward from the time of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and the new Rogue Squadron forms to aid whatever government replaces the New Republic. That means characters from the Sequel Trilogy like Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) could show up, but don t rule out another big time-jump to set the film apart from the Skywalker Saga entirely.Untitled Taika Waititi Star Wars Film(Photo by Jasin Boland/©Marvel)Release Date: 2025 (Our Guess)What We Know: Although the industry knew about Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi s Star Wars project for some time, Kennedy finally commented on it in December 2020, saying his approach to Star Wars will be fresh, unexpected, and unique. She also pointed to his talent – which is evident in his films – and his sense of humor as two strengths which will set Waititi s project apart from other Star Wars endeavors. Presumably, it will fill the Star Wars feature film slot Disney is currently holding for 2025; considering he is currently working with Disney on Thor: Love and Thunder for a February, 2022 release, the timing should work out.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Like Jenkins s film, it all depends on when it is set. With thousands of years of lore available to explore, Waititi could do just about anything he wants – from a story set on the world where sentient creatures first felt the Force to a film set entirely in Ackmena s (Beatrice Arthur) cantina from The Star Wars Holiday Special. And as Ragnarok proved, he can make just about any Star Wars setting a place of laughs, jeopardy, and thrills.Rian Johnson s Star Wars Trilogy: Episode I(Photo by David James/ © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures/Lucasfilm Ltd. /Courtesy Everett Collection)Release Date: 2027 (Our Guess)What We Know: First announced in 2017, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is expected to spearhead a new trilogy sometime in the next decade – writing and directing the first film himself. And although he reportedly reaffirmed his involvement as recently as this past February, no additional details are known. Currently, the director is expected to fast-track two sequels to his hit film Knives Out after Netflix paid almost half a billion dollars for the chance to stream them. Of course, that may not prevent his Star Wars trilogy from going forward as Lucasfilm seems happy to wait for him and build out different regions of the galaxy in the interim. Whether he ll be done telling Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) mysteries in time to make a film to fill the 2027 release date Disney has mapped out for a Star Wars film is anyone s guess.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Right now, it doesn t. It s just an agreement to make a series of movies, and as seen with Lucasfilm s quick decision to cancel the Star Wars Story anthology of films in wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story s underperformance, that deal could dissolve at any moment. See also: the company s about-face regarding a series of films to be developed by Game of Thrones executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.A Droid Story(Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)Release Date: TBDWhat We Know: As Kennedy described at the 2020 Investor Day presentation, the only Star Wars TV movie currently on the Disney+ roster will be an “epic journey” featuring a new hero guided by Star Wars most famous droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO. Although the Lucasfilm president was light on story details, she did mention the project will be a chance for the company’s animation and live-action special effects groups to stretch their expertise to its limits.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Like Visions, the film may also be freed from canon. At the same time, that new hero whom Artoo and Threepio guide could become part of Patty Jenkins s upcoming Star Wars: Rogue Squadron feature, a subsequent film, or, perhaps, a story set after well after Rey put an end to Sheev Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid).Untitled Kevin Feige Star Wars Film(Photo by Albert L. Ortega/WireImage)Release Date: TBDWhat We Know: Word first broke in 2019 that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was involved in developing a Star Wars film with Kennedy. At the time, Walt Disney Studios Co-Chairman Alan Horn said it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together. Like the first episode of the Johnson trilogy, it could end up becoming the Star Wars feature Disney releases in 2027. Then again, Feige s calendar is much busier than Johnson s and he ll likely be deep into planing Phase 6 or 7 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by the time the film would need to be shooting to meet that release date.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Not even Baskin-Robbins knows how it will fit into the rest of Lucasfilm s plans for Star Wars.Untitled J.D. Dillard Star Wars Project(Photo by Leon Bennett/WireImage)Release Date: TBDWhat We Know: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sleight director J.D. Dillard and Marvel TV writer Matt Owens (Luke Cage) are developing some sort of Star Wars project for Lucasfilm. In the year since the story first broke, though, no additional details have come to light. And even at the time of reporting, it was unclear if the project would be a Disney+ series, TV movie, or feature film. That ambiguity makes it an even more tenuous project than Johnson s trilogy.How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: Curiously, Dillard made a brief appearance in The Rise of Skywalker as FN-1226, one of the stormtroopers Rey mindtricks during Chewbacca s (Joonas Suotamo) rescue. Whether or not this would play into his project is unknown, but it does remind us that many First Order soldiers, stolen from their parents at a young age and conditioned to serve First Order interests, still deserve to be liberated. Well, the ones who survived the Battle of Exegol, anyway.Which Star Wars projects are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments.On an Apple device?

This Week s Ketchup brings you seven headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Ant-Man 3, and remakes of The Others and The Night of the Hunter. This WEEK S TOP STORYMARVEL S ANT-MAN BETTER STOCK UP ON SZECHUAN SAUCE (Photo by Marvel Studios)One of the side effects of COVID-19 forcing (most of) the entire MCU schedule to shift back several months (starting with Black Widow moving to November 6, 2020) is that all of those movies are still in the works, so instead of there being four or five films being actively developed, we now have more like seven or eight going on at the same time. One of the furthest out (it doesn t even have a release date yet) is Ant-Man 3, which is looking like it will come at least four years after the 2018 release of Ant-Man and the Wasp (Certified Fresh at 88%). With that in mind, this week Marvel hired its first writer for the project, namely Jeff Loveness, a writer and producer on the popular Rick and Morty animated cable show. There is no indication yet about what Ant-Man 3 might be about, except that Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily will both return as Ant-Man and the Wasp. Having said that, one could look at the comics and the seeds that previous Marvel movies have planted to guess that the third film could possibly introduce Scott Lang s daughter Cassie as a new teen superhero called Stature. In the comics, Cassie Lang has been an active superhero since 2005, including stints in groups like the Young Avengers, the Mighty Avengers, and the Secret Avengers. And, like many superheroes, she has also died, but this being comic books we re talking about she also eventually got better. In the MCU, Cassandra Lang was last seen in Avengers: Endgame, played by teen actress Emma Fuhrmann.Other Top Headlines1. THE BATMAN DIRECTOR PROMISES IT WON T BE ANOTHER ORIGIN STORY (Photo by Mark Sagliocco/Getty Images)Ever since Robert Pattinson was announced as Bruce Wayne in next year s The Batman (6/25/2021), there was some expectation that we would get yet another version of Batman s origin story. This week, director Matt Reeves clarified the issue by specifically assuring that The Batman will not be another origin tale, although it will be a tale that would still acknowledge his origins, in that it formed who he is. Like this guy, he’s majorly struggling, and this is how he’s trying to rise above that struggle. As for how The Batman has been impacted by the recent production shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Reeves also revealed this week that they had actually shot a quarter of the movie. As with most currently stalled productions, there is no confirmed schedule for when Reeves and his cast will be able to get back together in London to continue filming, which means the film s currently scheduled release date of June 25, 2021 could change.2. TAIKA WAITITI TEASES SPACE SHARKS IN THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER(Photo by Jasin Boland/©Marvel)A number of movie stars and directors are currently self-quarantined, as many of us are, but one small glimmer of fun in the midst of all this is that many of them are staging online events like group watches of various films. For example, Taika Waititi and his Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson staged a live watch of that film on Thursday, and in the process, Waititi dropped a few new details about what we can expect from Thor: Love and Thunder (2/18/2022). Calling the film so over the top, he also suggested that fans look up space sharks (likely a reference to Starsharks ) and shared some of the new film s concept art, including some new armor for Miek.3. LADY GAGA RETURNS TO ACTING IN FASHION EMPIRE EPIC GUCCI(Photo by Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/Getty Images)This coming October will mark two years since the release of Lady Gaga s A Star is Born (Certified Fresh at 90%), and this week, her next big film got a little closer to happening. Lady Gaga is attached to star in the true crime drama Gucci about the murder of fashion icon Mauricio Gucci, playing Patrizia Reggiani, Gucci s ex-wife who was convicted of orchestrating his hit after he had an affair (apologies if that that s a spoiler, but it s sort of how this entire story is being addressed in the news). Gucci is one of dozens of projects that Ridley Scott has been attached to in the last decade, but MGM coming aboard this week is being seen as an indication that Gucci will be one of Scott s next projects, possibly right after The Last Duel, which will reunite Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, along with Adam Driver. Indeed, MGM has already given Gucci a release date of November 24, 2021, which has to be seen as rather ambitious, considering all the current delays in film production. That date is just 11 months after December 25, 2020, which is when The Last Duel is currently scheduled (though that could also potentially be pushed back).4. JESSE EISENBERG TO MAKE HIS DIRECTORIAL DEBUT BASED ON AN AUDIBLE ORIGINAL(Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection)With the long-in-development sequel Zombieland: Double Tap released last year, and with Warner Bros. unlikely to use his version of Lex Luthor again now that the Henry Cavill version of Man of Steel is likewise pretty much over, Jesse Eisenberg has a lot more time on his hands now. Heck, even the Rio movies are done. And so, as many actors of a certain caliber often do, Eisenberg is preparing to make his feature film directorial debut. That film will be called When You Finish Saving the World, and Eisenberg has recruited Julianne Moore and Finn Wolfhard (Mike from Stranger Things) to star in it. Moore and Wolfhard will play a mother and son in the drama adapted from an upcoming Audible Original recording of the same title. Jesse Eisenberg also voices a role in the Audible production, so he may have a role as well as being the film s director.5. FEDE ALVAREZ TAKES ON ZOMBIE PANDEMIC THRILLER 16 STATES (Photo by Kirsty Griffin/©TriStar Pictures)As the world continues to struggle through an actual pandemic, one has to wonder how movies will tackle the subject. Diseases have frequently been an explanation in film for zombies (28 Days Later, for example, blamed it on a rage virus ), and as of this week, we re already getting a new movie about a zombie pandemic. Chilean director Fede Alvarez, who previously gave us both Don t Breathe (Certified Fresh at 88%) and the 2013 Evil Dead remake (Fresh at 62%), has signed on with Lionsgate (the studio behind both of those films) for 16 States, about a mother who has to make her way back to her family who are stuck in the middle of a massive zombie outbreak. The 16 States screenplay has also been described as having shades of the Will Smith movie, I Am Legend.

亚博论坛网站 Recommended: 10 Fresh Jessica Walter Movies and SeriesWalter’s storied career dated back to the early ’60s and was wide-ranging, boasting plum roles in everything from the classic Clint Eastwood thriller Play Misty for Me to the animated spy spoof Archer. “Even my leading ladies – you know, in air quotes – were characters,” she told ELLE in 2019. “They were not Miss Vanilla Ice Cream. They weren t holding the horse while John Wayne galloped into the sunset.”Lucille Bluth, her character that arguably most struck a chord with viewers, was certainly no different. And it’s to Walter’s immense credit that she was able to stand out in one of the best-cast comedies ever – if not downright own certain scenes. Here are a few times where she did just that.Klimpy’s BurnJust look at how Walter arches her eyebrows and closes her laminated menu after delivering “I don’t understand the question and I won’t respond to it,” one of the show’s most quotable one-liners. It practically screams: How dare you? Don t you know who I am? The Cost Of One Banana Here’s another scene that shows just how out-of-touch Lucille is. “I mean it’s one banana, Michael. What could it cost? Ten dollars?” Lucille asks. When her son Michael (Jason Bateman) calls her out on her ignorance, Walters gives a curt “I don’t have time for this” while dismissively shaking her head in a way that wonderfully emphasizes her character’s entitlement.Gene ParmesanOne of the show s best running gags – and there are a bunch – is Lucille’s private detective Gene Parmesan (Martin Mull) surprising his employer by showing up in shoddy costumes. Walter’s squealing in body-shaking, unadulterated glee at these reveals are absolutely delightful – and account for some of the few moments when Lucille’s pleasure doesn’t come at someone else s expense.Air quotesWalter displays some ace physical-comedy chops here, air-quoting twice, vodka martini in hand spilling on the floor each time, totally incensed and unfazed.“Take it back!”Lucille interacting with servers – or anyone with a job, really – is always comic gold. But we’re partial to how Walter indignantly lashes out at one with this shrilly-delivered doozy: “If I wanted something your thumb touched, I’d eat the inside of your ear!”The WinkAnother running gag – there’s an excellent arc where Lucille mistakes a side-effect warning on her prescription as an invitation to get sloshed – sees Walter’s character doubling down on her attempt to be charming with Michael and coming off as absolutely ridiculous.Dismissing ArizonaI d rather be dead in California than alive in Arizona. pic.twitter.com/NRqCMTYOno Arrested Development (@bluthquotes) April 11, 2017“Well I’d rather be dead in California than alive in Arizona,” Lucille
The first teaser trailer for upcoming stop-motion animated series Marvel s M.O.D.O.K. is potentially bloodier and more violent than viewers unfamiliar with the show s comic book inspiration would anticipate. The show follows the titular megalomaniacal supervillain (the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing), voiced by co-creator Patton Oswalt, as he continues (and kinda fails at) his quest to conquer the world.But the character has always been over the top and rageful, Oswalt said on the show s TCA panel — so much so that he truly is his own worst enemy. As far as the blood and gore, we decided to take it to Monty Python levels. Co-creator Jordan Blum said that the notoriously protective Marvel allowed them to push the characters as far as they wanted to go because they knew the show we were trying to make and they encouraged it. Although the character of M.O.D.O.K. isn t as well-known as other superheroes and supervillains, he s instantly recognizable for comic fans, said Blum. It s a fan-favorite character, like Howard the Duck or other lesser-known heroes.As a company, Marvel loves how weird and kind of out there their characters get, said Oswalt. They do have this amazing roster of characters, so the fact that we re starting on the outer limits and then building beyond that, I think they re really excited. That said, there will be plenty of cameos from the big heroes audiences know and love (despite the fact that this series is decidedly not a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which now includes TV with all of the company s Disney+ shows).On occasion, said Blum, Marvel let us play with the big toys. The rest of the show s stacked voice cast includes Melissa Fumero, Aimee Garcia, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ben Schwartz, Beck Bennett, Jon Daly, and Sam Richardson.M.O.D.O.K. premieres April 7 on Hulu.The Handmaid s Tale Heads to Chicago for Season 4Margaret Atwood has always said that everything she wrote about in her 1985 dystopian novel The Handmaid s Tale was either something that had happened or was currently happening — so the fact that the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 eerily echoed events that take place in Hulu s adaptation makes a lot of sense. We remain unbelievably relevant, and we kind of wish we weren’t, executive producer Warren Littlefield said on a panel for the show s upcoming fourth season.Added creator Bruce Miller, Television and drama are safe places to see your worst fears acted out and kind of experience them at a remove. When you come up with something horrible in your head and put it on television, and then hear something like it happening in the real world, it s just sickening. But the terror of life in Gilead, the theocratic dictatorship that has taken over much of the U.S. in The Handmaid s Tale s fictional world, isn t all parallels to the current political reality. The fourth season, which premieres April 28 — nearly two years after the third season ended, thanks to its pandemic production delay — will see what happened in the aftermath of heroine June (Elisabeth Moss) and her allies sending dozens of children to safety in Canada. Spoiler alert: The resistance is alive and well, and June and her friends will continue to sow the seeds of an uprising that the show has hinted at for a while. We’re delivering on the things that we’ve set up, and I think that’s very satisfying, Miller said. I think in this season we weren’t waiting around. We were trying to make progress. It was time for s t to happen. Added Littlefield, This year, in some ways, it’s about patience rewarded. We’ve planted seeds for several years about this uprising and hotspot in Chicago and the forces of Gilead really can’t keep it under control, and now we go. We leave our world, our central universe around the greater Boston area, and — boom — we’re in a completely new environment. And if you thought Moss had a lot of work between juggling her ultra-intense, emotional scenes and her job as an executive producer on the show, know that Moss directed not one but several episodes of the upcoming fourth season.The Handmaid s Tale season 4 premieres April 28 on Hulu.Erin Brockovich Inspired Sexy ABC Legal Drama Rebel(Photo by ABC/Pamela Littky)The main character of ABC s new legal drama Rebel, based on the life of Erin Brockovich, obviously shares plenty of traits in common with the environmental activist herself (and Julia Roberts Oscar-winning fictionalized version).“What I love so much about Rebel is she can cross a few lines. She can go outside the box, said Katey Sagal, who plays the titular character, a blue-collar legal advocate without a law degree who will fight for a cause she believes in at almost any cost. She gathers knowledge from everywhere, she just takes it all, and then her primary purpose is to fight for the right thing. But that s just how Brockovich is in real life, she admitted. I’ve been told to watch my mouth plenty of times, but it’s passion,” Brockovich said on the series TCA panel. Why do you have to respond a certain way when some of the things you’re dealing with are full of passion and angst and fear and lies and deception? Not always is my response calm, cool, and collected. Why would anybody not understand why you get upset over certain issues?”But a show from Krista Vernoff, a.k.a. the showrunner of Shondaland staples Grey s Anatomy and Station 19, isn t just going to be legal battles and activism. It is, Vernoff told reporters, very sexy. It’s 10 p.m. on ABC. It’s sexy, it’s family, it’s friendship, it’s all of the human interactions with a legal element.”Rebel premieres Thursday, April 8 on ABC.Did Shrill Writers Know Season 3 Would Be the End?When Ali Rushfield, Lindy West, Aidy Bryant, and the writers of Shrill began crafting their story for the comedy s third season, they didn t know that it would be the last. But once Hulu told the team that season 3 of the show, which stars Bryant as a Portland writer who learns to embrace herself and her voice, would be the last, they were able to write a satisfying finale.“We didn’t know going in, but we knew somewhere in the middle of there, with enough time to make an ending we were good with and lands the characters in a good place,” Rushfield said on the show s panel. “So we didn’t know then, but we feel good with the way it landed.”Added Bryant, who missed most of Saturday Night Live s fall shows while on location in Portland, I’m of course sad the show is ending because I love working with Lindy and Ali [and our cast], but I’m also so proud of what we’ve made, and it feels like a really nice beginning, middle, and end to me.

Colman Domingo as William Burke in Candyman. (Photo by Parrish Lewis / Universal Studios and MGM Pictures)For anyone glued to prestige TV and acclaimed indie and Oscar-hopeful cinema in the last few years, it would seem that Philly-born Colman Domingo has been everywhere. There he was as a thoughtful father in Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk and as the even-keeled bandleader in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom; there he was, too, dodging Walkers in Fear the Walking Dead and impressing in meaty roles on The Knick and Euphoria — the diner-set special “Trouble Don t Last Always” is still breaking hearts. If you hadn t seen his earlier work, marked by the kind of standout smaller roles that get major filmmakers calling, it was as if one of the most exciting new talents of his generation had come out of nowhere. Of course, that wasn’t the story for the man himself. “I feel like I’m a turtle,” Domingo says. “I ve been on the slow crawl, just working, and being there and always doing something outside the box for myself. It s been slow and steady, to be honest, it hasn t been a sudden overnight sensation.” The patient Domingo continues to explode in 2021, reaching new levels of acclaim and notoriety with two of his most interesting and challenging roles to date: In June, he explored new and villainous terrain, portraying a violent, code-switching pimp in Janicza Bravo’s off-the-wall road trip dramedy, Zola; this month, he delivers yet another invigorating multidimensional performance in director Nia DaCosta s socially conscious slasher film, Candyman. With both characters he hopes to further show not just the breadth of his range but the depth of his work. “If you see me in Beale Street, yes, it s probably a bit more in alignment to the Colman that they know in some way, Domingo says. But if you see Zola and Candyman, you know that s not the truth. You can actually see the craftsmanship.” The crawl began, as it does for many of Domingo s caliber, in the theater where he wrote, directed, and acted, breaking out in the Tony-winning rock musical Passing Strange in the late 2000s and eventually winning the Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for The Scottsboro Boys. A slew of TV and film work followed, with an enviable roster of major award-winning directors drawn to him like a magnet: Steven Spielberg (Lincoln), Steven Soderbergh (The Knick), Ava DuVernay (Selma), George C. Wolfe (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), and Jenkins among them. He believes there’s an element those creators have in common: kindness. “It s a spirit of true collaboration,” Domingo says, people who want you to be in the room to help elevate this thing that’s on the page.” A queer Black man, the actor balances portraying gay men on shows like The Big Gay Sketch Show against men who are coded straight: Civil Rights activist Reverend Ralph Abernathy in Selma, a swinging bandleader in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, an empathetic father If Beale Street Could Talk — calm, guiding forces. That diversity has always been intentional. “I believe I can do horror, do musicals and plays and leading men and character roles because I decided that, he says. “I don t let the industry tell me what I can do. I ve always been a proponent of creating my own opportunities.” Domingo in Barry Jenkins If Beale Street Could Talk. (Photo by © Annapurna Pictures / Courtesy Everett Collection)His two big 2021 releases – both of which were originally scheduled for 2020 but delayed due to the pandemic – show Domingo’s capacity to subvert audience expectations. Consider his turn as X, a vicious pimp and sex trafficker in the comedy-nightmare road movie, Zola, based on the viral 2015 Twitter thread by A’ziah King (a.k.a. “Zola”). “When Janicza offered me that role, I had just come off of Beale Street and I thought: Well, what has she seen in my repertoire that would make her think that I could play this role?,” he recalls. “A lot of times [people] try to put you in the boxes of what you are known for. They want you to regurgitate another version of that. But Janicza and Nia DaCosta both knew that there was so much more to me than that.”The actor known for a reserved, smoky-voiced paternalism relished playing the ostentatious X. He built the character from the ground up, using King’s 148 tweets as inspiration, while adding his own embellishments, such as X’s flashy clothes and lone hazel contact lens, an idea he got from seeing a Nigerian-American sporting the look in New York City. “Everything about X was a little too much: His idea of wealth; his idea of having agency in the world, Domingo says. Everything was a show, from the crocodile shoes to the Versace shirts. I did a lot of research on pimp and pimp culture, whether reading biographies or having conversations with people in the sex industry and finding out about the relationships between pimps and clientele.” Domingo is terrifying in every moment he appears on screen in Zola: He leans on his star persona in early scenes, imbuing X with heaps of charm, only to frighteningly turn – and code-switch to a menacing West Indian accent – during the film’s caustic second half. Yet even after watching that performance, his casting as the enigmatic William Burke in Candyman might have still come as a shock for some audiences. Especially if you know his history with the genre.Domingo as pimp and sex trafficker X in Zola. (Photo by © A24 / courtesy Everett Collection)“The first horror film I watched was Carrie when I was eight years old,” Domingo says. “My brother would take me to see Bruce Lee movies. My sister would take me to see horror. I didn t like either one. I probably would be happier seeing Bambi, which is a terrifying movie, too.” The Brian De Palma film’s ending – that infamous hand shooting up from the grave – never left him. “From then on, when I walked past the movie theater on the way to school, there was a big poster of Carrie. It was half bloody and gory and the other half was beauty at the prom. It terrified me from going to dances and proms.”Nevertheless, it feels as though Domingo was born to be in 2021’s Candyman. In relation to Bernard Rose’s 1992 film, the first in the series, this iteration takes place in the area where Chicago’s Cabrini-Green housing projects once stood. Domingo’s Burke owns a retro laundromat and is one of the last residents of the storied development. The real Black folks who once populated Cabrini-Green, which was located in the shadow of downtown’s glittering skyscrapers, are now gone; by 2011 the towering apartment complexes that once dotted the torn landscape were demolished, making way for new luxe townhouses. All that remains are haunting row houses. Burke is a mysterious figure bearing deep emotional scars, and Domingo relied on real-life experiences to play him. “I m from inner-city Philadelphia, West Philly,” he says. “I know these people. These people are me. I know exactly what their dreams, their aspirations, their struggles, their fears are. I just tapped into that.”Candyman co-star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II walks among the row houses.

亚博论坛网站 Nine Perfect Strangers, Hulu’s star-studded adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s novel, follows a group of people from various backgrounds who visit a wellness center called Tranquillum House for what they believe to be a 10-day restorative retreat.But this is not a vacation they will soon forget. Run by mysterious and ethereal Masha Dmitrichenko (Nicole Kidman) and her minions including Yao (Manny Jacinto) and Delilah (Tiffany Boone), the resort offers the promise of restoration and healing. But at what cost?As the characters and the audience begin to question Masha’s motives, the situation becomes complicated, and it grows harder for guests to leave Tranquillum House before check-out.Rotten Tomatoes spoke to the series cast and rounded up nine things you need to know about Nine Perfect Strangers before it premieres August 18.1. It’s Not a Horror Series(Photo by Hulu)Despite the premise set up with that logline — All is not well — series director Jonathan Levine said this is a show that “really transcends genre.”“I certainly thought about horror and certainly thought about thrillers,” he said during the show’s Television Critics Association summer press tour panel. “But at the end of the day, even though we’re playing with those tropes, I think, for me, it was about character and about these beautiful people that you kind of empathize with and fall in love with.”Still, he said, “We certainly were playing with the audience s expectations and using genre as a vehicle to tell this story and to keep it compelling.”2. But It Is a Show About Pain(Photo by Vince Valitutti/Hulu)The series discusses pain, but the emotional not what you’d find in a slasher flick. Regina Hall’s (pictured) Carmel Schneider is a divorcee who hopes things like losing weight will help her issues. Melissa McCarthy’s Frances Welty is a novelist experiencing setbacks in her career and personal life.“Doing the show made you think a lot about what you do to cover up your problems,” McCarthy said at TCA, adding that “at some point, you have to get it out. So it’s like you’re already in the midst of being miserable and suffering, so make a change. And that’s so much what I think this show is about.”3. The Guests Aren t All Strangers to Each Other(Photo by Vince Valitutti/Hulu)Michael Shannon (above right) and Asher Keddie (above center) play husband-and-wife Napoleon and Heather Marconi, who are at the wellness center with their daughter Zoe (Grace Van Patten) after experiencing a loss. Melvin Gregg (above left) and Samara Weaving play married couple Ben and Jessica Chandler, who have mastered the façade of perfection.Both families are experiencing emotional strains in their relationships. At one point, during a trust exercise, Heather’s grief consumes her so much that she considers diving off a cliff.“That was really poignant for me, actually, for the character, because it really spoke to the bigger question in the show,” Keddie told Rotten Tomatoes. “And that moment, when she is quite literally on the precipice, I think she has reached a point in her life where she actually just doesn t know how to connect anymore.”Van Patten added that “when you see Zoe, she has really pushed down a lot of her emotion and trauma and has been living in her parents’ trauma more than her own.”When Zoe encounters Masha at Tranquillum, her instinct is to run, but there’s nowhere to go.4. Fleeting Fame Is Also a Theme(Photo by Vince Valitutti/Hulu)In addition to Gregg and Weaving’s social media celebrities and McCarthy’s novelist, Bobby Cannavale’s former athlete Tony Hogburn has reached that stage in his career where people feel like the recognize him — but they don’t know why.In this case, Tony would rather you don’t know who he is.“Part of that is the wardrobe,” Cannavale told Rotten Tomatoes. “I think this guy has physically transformed himself. He s gained all this weight. And he does not want to be recognized.”Cannavale describes the character as “pretty aggressive,” but “it s behavior coming out of desperation.”“Whether he realizes it or not, I think he s trying to wake himself up,” Cannavale said. “I think he s so numbed by these drugs and by how his entire life and those relationships have been clouded over by that, I think any kind of provocation will stimulate him in the right way.”5. The Show Plays with Social Media s Perceptions of Perfection(Photo by Vince Valitutti/Hulu)Weaving’s Jessica is beautiful but also lacks self-esteem and confidence. She is addicted to her phone, which she (like everyone else) must relinquish upon check-in. It pains her that she can’t Instagram a beautiful breakfast spread at the retreat.Weaving told Rotten Tomatoes that she herself has “always had terrible anxiety” that she has managed through medication and therapy.“Anxiety is such a mental state,” she said of playing Jessica. So she tried “to see how that could manifest physically. So I gave her a scratch and some ticks and rapid eye movements and things like that.”She also “did a lot of research and talked to a lot of people who suffer from body dysmorphia.”6. Tranquillum Seeks Out People Who Feel Like They’ve Exhausted All Other Options(Photo by Vince Valitutti/Hulu)Why would Jessica and Ben, who roll up in a fancy sports car, go here when they could just try couples therapy? Or when they could spend their time relaxing at a Hawaiian luxury hotel with Wi-Fi?“I think they ve done all of this stuff,” Gregg told Rotten Tomatoes. “Their life is a vacation and they tried couples therapy, but nothing is working … but she feels like the problem is bigger. So we need you need to take more extreme options.”Jacinto added, “There comes a point in all our lives where you just reach this point of desperation where you need help. You can t find it in your spouse or in your family. So you need someone to tell you that everything s gonna be OK. And, when someone is that vulnerable, there can be abuses of power and abuses of trust.”7. The Show Explores Wealth Inequality(Photo by Vince Valitutti/Hulu)Much like HBO’s The White Lotus, Nine Perfect Strangers examines the excesses and expectations of wealthy people and how some lose sight of the humanity of the staff members catering to their whims.“Diving into it more and maybe thinking about it after the project, you can’t help but sit back and think: How much money do these people have to spend?” Jacinto tells Rotten Tomatoes. “But, I mean, I’m sitting there judging them when, at the end of the day, I am such a sucker for self-improvement and for wanting to be better.”Both series embed lower-income characters into the facilities guest lists, and those characters express a degree of imposter syndrome, in which they openly remark on their worthiness to be guests. And while The White Lotus draws strict lines around its predominantly white guests and ethnically diverse staff, Nine Perfect Strangers offers more of a mix on both sides of the equation.8. Jacinto Is Here For Your The Good Place Comparisons(Photo by Vince Valitutti/Hulu)The actor, who rose to fame playing the delightful simpleton Jason Mendoza on The Good Place is aware that this is yet another series where a bunch of unsuspecting individuals arrive at a utopia lorded over by a charac
