亚博手机登录采用百度引擎7（Baidu 3）After a year off the air, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC for its sixth season on Friday, May 10 with a refreshed premise, a seeming departure from its big screen Marvel Cinematic Universe cousin, and a new director at the center of television’s Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. Luckily, Rotten Tomatoes had the chance to visit S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ and debrief the cast ahead of the new season s premiere.As first revealed at the end of season 5, Alfonso Mackenzie — better known as “Mack” — succeeded the dying Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) as the head of the agency after Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) turned down the position. Season 6 picks up sometime after Coulson’s apparent death, with Mack now firmly entrenched as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s director. It is a leadership role actor Henry Simmons, who plays Mack, said he loves. In previous seasons, Mack was most frequently seen offering a bewildered punchline about the group s latest adversary or impossible scenario. But now he s front and center.“Now, you have to drive the scenes as a director. I was talking with Clark about this, Simmons said. The weird thing is when you become director you feel responsible for each person, for what s happening in the scene. It s weird. And I enjoy that. I am grateful for the fact that they put it in my hands.”(Photo by ABC/Mitch Haaseth)As the actor recalled, Mack started as a mechanic who wound up in S.H.I.E.L.D. prior to the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He first became part of Coulson’s team when another faction of S.H.I.E.L.D. wanted to test their loyalty following the revelation that Hydra had infiltrated the organization. But after years of dealing with demons and traveling though time, Mack grew to respect Coulson and his team.And as seen in some of the previews for the new season, Mack still refers back to a hologram of Coulson contained within Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) toolbox from earlier seasons.“This is a daily thing,” Simmons explained. “Mack really relies on this hologram for advice, for direction … there s a lot to deal with. We have a member that s out there somewhere, a team member that we have to find. And we have an occurrence that s happening around Earth that is unpredictable and deadly.”Both objectives will hopefully allow Mack to prove to himself he was the right choice to succeed Coulson, a theme executive producer Jeff Bell said will recur through the season. In the same way that Coulson questioned his ability after Fury — Can I be a director? Do I have what it takes? — I think Mack is going through his own version of that, he said.Meanwhile, the missing team member Simmons mentioned is Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), who also died at the end of season 5. But thanks to the malleable nature of time travel on the series, an earlier version of Fitz is still alive somewhere in deep space and it’s up to a team comprised of Daisy, Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), Agent Piper (Briana Venskus), and Agent Davis (Maximilian Osinski) to find him.(Photo by ABC/Mitch Haaseth)For Daisy, the mission is particularly fraught considering the future version of Fitz tried to kill her to prevent the world from ending. (Things got a little crazy last season.) But this Fitz never hurt her.“I think the one thing that connects all of them is that they re all trying to be the best versions of themselves, but still at the end of the day, there s darkness within every character, Bennet said.That darkness may be most apparent in Jemma Simmons, whose dedication to finding Fitz tests the patience of the others as the season begins.“Ethically she s just so biased on finding him. So she is not worried about other people s feelings. She doesn t care what the consequences are,” Henstridge said of her character’s state of mind. She noted the character has become single-minded before, but never to this extent — threatening the lives of the others. “She s can t fit anything else in her head at the moment, because as soon as she starts to think about other people, she ll start to think about the crazy odds of what she s trying to do and she ll break down.”For Piper and Davis, the mission means a certain sacrifice, but for Venskus and Osinski, it means a promotion. After appearing on the series off-and-on for the past four years, both will feature regularly for the first time this season. It means an expansion of the characters and a new role for them to share.“We are kind of like the everyman of the show,” Osinski explained, adding, “We don t have superpowers; we don t have robotic arms or special weapons. Said Venskus, “We re the ones who are more surprised by things still — which is kind of cool. We provide that comedic relief of being, like, ‘This isn t normal, right?’”They are, however, highly trained S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who managed to survive just about every upheaval since S.H.I.E.L.D. s initial fall in The Winter Soldier. As Venskus put it, that means Piper went to from learning about aliens in her first episode to treating space travel like “no big deal” in season 6. And if previous seasons are any indication, the duo s deep space adventure will continue for quite awhile.(Photo by ABC/Matthias Clamer)Back on Earth, Mack and the rest of the team face those anomalies Simmons mentioned. They crisscross the planet in something resembling a pattern. And as previews have hinted at, it may have something to do with Gregg’s new character, Sarge; a sort of “anti-Coulson” who is as much of a mystery as the anomalies.“They have a similar drive and focus,” Gregg said of Coulson and Sarge. “They re both, I think, not someone whose willpower you want to question. But everything else, the moral framework, all that stuff, is different.”According to executive producer Jed Whedon, Sarge’s frame of mind will be “so shocking to people” that it “actually has its own power.” At the same time, watching Sarge make the choices he does while looking and sounding like Coulson “gives those moments more weight than they normally would have.”“It was very, very hard to get my balance,” Gregg said of switching gears into Sarge. “It really felt odd. There s a part of [his thinking] that s so clean. He has a mission and he does [it] life means nothing to him. He wants what he wants. And he s going to get it done. And that s very freeing, and it s kind of sexy, it feels like it s fun. And yet I had a lot of questions about how he s justifying that.”One character also having a hard time justifying Sarge’s presence is Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen). She stayed with Coulson during his last days and returned to S.H.I.E.L.D. a “freer” person. As Wen put it, “She doesn t have the burden of dealing with either him being sick or die or come back after he died and die again.”(Photo by ABC/Matthias Clamer)Of course, that sense of freedom gets “skewered” when she first sees Sarge.“It s a moment of disbelief and major angst for her,” Wen explained. But once May understands the real story behind Sarge, the character will have a familiar Melinda May reaction. “She s pissed,” Wen added. “She s really pissed.”Beyond her reaction to Coulson, May brings her experience and honesty back to S.H.I.E.L.D. This includes an advisory role to Mack and Yo-Yo (Natalia Cordova- Buckley). The latter continues to serve as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and, but Cordova-Buckley noted that her character has undergone a shift from the rebellious Yo-Yo we first met.“It was really interesting for me to go from a girl that s so [about] her word, her mind, her beliefs, and always really going against anything that goes against that, Cordova-Buckley said, to now saying, You know what, there s a bigger picture. I need to be more diplomatic. I need to settle the fire down and find my way within the institution, the bureaucracy, and all that stuff. ”That said, Cordova-Buckley said Yo-Yo may still decline a leadership position within S.H.I.E.L.D., although she would become a great leader if circumstances forced the role upon her.“I get a sense that she would rather be a mentor of sorts to young children, to Inhumans coming up, to sort of be the leader underground, she said. Not the face of [a group]. (Photo by ABC/Matthias Clamer)Circumstances always change quickly for S.H.I.E.L.D., both within its world and without. Last season, events appeared to coincide with Thanos s (Josh Brolin) arrival on Earth to collect the Time and Mind Stones. But as the series was unclear when it would coming back — or even if it would come back — they could not plan a proper connection with the events of Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers: Endgame. That means the slightest bit of retconning will be on display in the season to come.“However the Time Lords want to work it out, all of this had to happen before the Snap,” executive producer Jeph Loeb explained. “Otherwise, we d be living in the world that was brilliantly showed in Endgame.”Then again, perhaps Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will employ the notion of tangent timelines to explain itself in some yet-to-be-written episode. The show always excels at finding the odd corners of the MCU to examine and that would be a fine one to use. In the meantime, though, S.H.I.E.L.D. has plenty of personal crises and intergalactic stakes to keep themselves busy ahead of the already planned season 7.Like this?

3.68.4 0月喜迎solved.Hoffa’s connections to organized crime began in the 1930s when he was a union activist in New York, and it was here that the young Hoffa first gained an audience with mafia dons Russell Bufalino and Angelo Bruno. After years of moving up in the Teamsters Union, all while making shady backdoor deals with the East Coast mafia, Hoffa became president of the Teamsters from 1957 until 1971 and turned it into one of the most powerful in the world.But, on July 30, 1975, just four years after stepping down as Teamsters president, Hoffa vanished without a trace. The unsolved disappearance has led to countless theories of what happened, including ones that posit Hoffa was either buried underneath Giants Stadium in the Meadowlands, compacted in a car and sold as scrap metal and shipped to Japan, or buried under a suburban Detroit driveway. The one commonality is that they all agree the mafia had him taken out.The teaser trailer released today seems to have higher ambitions than just exploring Hoffa s rise, fall, and presumed death, however. With frequent allusions to John F. Kennedy and the role of big business and the government, it seems like The Irishman will tackle the connections between a tangled web of organized crime, crooked unions, and American politics in the 20th century.The Cast and Crew(Photo by Universal courtesy Everett Collection)We first got a glimpse of the type of talent in this movie in the initial teaser (even though it was only their names), but now we finally get to see some of the greatest actors in film history and one of the most beloved and revered directors of all time doing their thing.We all know the work Scorsese, De Niro, Keitel, and Pesci have done together, including Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and Casino, but adding Pacino to that crew is the pistachios on the cannoli.In the upcoming film, Pacino plays Union leader Hoffa and De Niro plays his friend and alleged killer Sheeran, while Keitel and Pesci play bosses of rival East Coast crime families.But the talent doesn’t stop there, as The Irishman’s roster is both top heavy and deep. In addition to these heavy hitters, the film will also feature Oscar winner Anna Paquin, two-time Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale, two-time Emmy nominee Jesse Plemons, and Emmy-winner Ray Romano.In case you weren’t keeping count, that cast features actors who have been nominated for a combined 19 Oscars, 35 Golden Globes, and 27 Emmys, and have collectively taken home five Oscars, five Golden Globes, and seven Emmys. And that’s just in front of the camera.Between Scorsese, screenwriter Steven Zaillian, editor Thelma Shoonmaker, and cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, the talent behind the camera has combined for 25 Academy Award noms and four wins.So, with all that talent and excitement, how has it taken so long for this film to get made?The Journey(Photo by Andrew Cooper/Paramount courtesy Everett Collection)This film has been a passion project for director Martin Scorsese for years, with news coming about the potential film as far back as 2008. (That same article refers to Scorsese s adaptation of Shutter Island as an upcoming release, just to give a sense of how long ago 2008 was.)Since then, the film has floundered in development hell, and Scorsese moved on to directing other long-gestating passion projects like Hugo, The Wolf of Wall Street, and 2016’s Silence. But Scorsese kept coming back to the story of the most famous mob hit in history, and finally, in 2017, Paramount and Fábrica de Cine came together to co-finance the film and aim for a 2019 release.So how did it end up on Netflix, you ask?The BudgetYes, like all things, it comes down to cold, hard cash.Initially targeted for a 0 million budget, the movie s cost soon ballooned to nearly 0,000,000 after the production opted to use a CGI de-aging technique to make De Niro, Pacino, and co. appear younger while playing the younger versions of their characters.Because of this price tag (and perhaps still feeling the burn left by Silence, which cost upwards of million and took in less than million at the box office), Fábrica de Cine and Paramount decided to back out of the project less than a year after agreeing to fund it.Fábrica de Cine producer Gaston Pavlovich explained this difficult decision, saying We quickly realized that Marty and De Niro really thought that the aging process was going to be a very important aspect of this film. The traditional model was not going to work with this new vision of the project [we could not] risk that amount [of money] when all our data was telling us that it was not going to come back. Thankfully, Netflix stepped in, and the importance is not lost on Scorsese, who recently said, “People such as Netflix are taking risks. The Irishman is a risky film. No one else wanted to fund the pic for five to seven years. And of course we’re all getting older. Netflix took the risk.”(Photo by Netflix)Even so, the CGI de-aging comes with both budgetary and cinematic concerns. Previously used on Brad Pitt in Benjamin Button, Jeff Bridges in Tron: Legacy, and Robert Downey Jr. in Captain America: Civil War, the de-aging technology has advanced in recent years to appear more natural, but still remains costly. So costly, in fact, that until Samuel L. Jackson (and, perhaps less noticeably, Clark Gregg) was made to look 25 years younger in the recent Captain Marvel, it had only been used sparingly.Editor Thelma Schoonmaker called it a “risk,” saying, “We’re youthifying the actors in the first half of the movie. And then the second half of the movie they play their own age. So that’s a big risk. We’re having that done by Industrial Light and Magic Island, ILM. That’s a big risk.”While it might be cool to see young Pacino, young De Niro, young Pesci, and young Keitel in the same scene, it could also venture too close to the uncanny valley and take the viewers out of the film.Schoonmaker has also expressed some trepidation over how the public is going to view seeing a 30-year-old Pacino, De Niro, et al. in a 2019 movie: “I haven’t gotten a whole scene where they’re young, and what I’m going to have to see, and what Marty’s going to have to see, is ‘How is it affecting the rest of the movie, when you see them young?’” In that same interview, the eminent editor said that, of the few people they’ve screened the movie for, “nobody minds. Nobody minds watching them play young, because they’re gripped.”While we don t see too much of the de-aged film legends in the teaser trailer, what we do see looks pretty good. On first impressions, the one shot of a young De Niro talking on the phone might be a little distracting, but this is just the first glimpse, so that s a given. With what is sure to be stellar directing from Scorsese and brilliant acting from some silver screen legends, audiences likely won t even notice that there s a 40-something Robert De Niro in a 2019 movie.The Release(Photo by Paramount Pictures)As one of Netflix s main prestige productions for 2019, it was always expected that The Irishman would be released at the heart of awards season, and now we have confirmation.It was recently announced that The Irishman will celebrate its world premiere as the Opening Night film for the 2019 New York Film Festival on September 27. Most likely, the film will be available for the general public a few weeks later in theaters and on your couch.Previously, Scorsese has expressed his disdain for movie-watching on small screens, saying that when he was growing up, films “had to be shown in certain ways — people went to a movie, it wasn’t something you could choose or pick up, or walk out of the room. You actually made a commitment. It was a different experience.” He continued, “the ideal would be to see cinema in its proper context… It’s a problem of pure concentration.”Robert de Niro agrees, saying at a recent film festival, Movies have to be shown on a big screen. It appears Netflix also shares this sentiment, as the teaser trailer announces that the film will be shown in select theaters. Unfortunately, we still don’t really know when exactly The Irishman will be released. But we now know that it will have a splashy premiere at a prestigious film festival at the end of September, and will be shown in theaters and on the streaming service sometime this Fall.The Irishman is currently set to release in select theaters an on Netflix during the Fall of 2019.
For Margot Robbie, Birds of Prey (And the Fabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has been a passion project five years in the making. Ahead of the movie’s release, Rotten Tomatoes correspondent Naz Perez sat down with Robbie to ask why she felt so connected to this character and why she worked so hard to bring her story to the big screen. Of course, Birds of Prey is a Harley Quinn movie, but it’s no solo outing: We also spoke with the Birds themselves – Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Rosie Perez – and co-stars Ella Jay Basco and Chris Messina about working with Robbie and creating some of the DCEU’s most epic action scenes yet. Plus, director Cathy Yan talks creating a Gotham City befitting her leading lady and working with Robbie to bring out Harley’s more vulnerable side.
The last ever Arrow panel at Comic-Con on Saturday turned out to be surprising emotional. While the stars of the series still have several episodes to shoot, they all became overwhelmed with the prospect of letting their characters go. But during the session, a spontaneous outpouring of admiration for series star Stephen Amell led to the start of tears.After the panel, several members of the cast and crew assured Rotten Tomatoes they did not plan to open the waterworks. “It’s always a benefit,” quipped executive producer Marc Guggenheim, before adding the whole group just found themselves navigating that territory in response to questions.“It’s not every day you see Stephen cry,” added co-star Katie Cassidy-Rodgers. “The thing about this that’s really incredible is that it all started with Arrow and Stephen. it was time to pay respect.”“I don’t do particularly well anticipating appreciation,” Amell explained. “It catches me off-guard.”Nonetheless, a season of emotional closures is on the menu for the series’ final year.“In the first three episodes, Oliver has closure with five characters that I never thought he’d get closure with. And it happens in very unexpected ways,” Amell said. “They may not know it, but he knows it. He’s left a lot of loose ends along the way, and I hope over the course of the year that we’re going to tie up as many as possible.”The final season will see Amell’s Oliver Queen taking on a mission for The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett), which will presumably take Green Arrow into different realms of time and space. And considering the glimpses we saw of former nemesis Prometheus (Josh Segarra) during the panel, anything will be possible as Arrow prepared for its last bow.Snowpiercer Series Finally Gets a TrailerWondering how the Snowpiercer TV series will tie in to the 2013 film? Well, the first trailer for the long-in-development drama reveals that it takes place nearly a decade before the events of the movie. And showrunner Graeme Manson (co-creator of Orphan Black), revealed that visually, the series takes on the look of director Bong Joon-ho s film, but the ideas of the French graphic novels on which the movie was based. We pull from [Le Transperceneige], he said. They re a source of inspiration, and a number of things we ve pulled out of that. I think the show has the feel of the movie and a lot of the ideas of the graphic novels. He also revealed that the series is able to visit so many previously unseen areas of the train. The difference between the show and the movie really is the movie was such a terrific adventure story that started in the tail and charged completely linearly up to the engine, he said. The show, meanwhile, will spend time in every area. Our heart is in the tail, but we spend time in every single class. The Expanse Cast Rides High on Waves of GratitudeThe Expanse cast and series creators radiate excitement and gratitude when talking about season 4 — the season saved by Amazon s Jeff Bezos and a massive fan-fueled campaign. The series panel featured cast members Steven Strait, Wes Chatham, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cas Anvar, Dominique Tipper, and Frankie Adams as well as executive producers Naren Shankar and Ty Franck.Actor Burn Gorman (Pacific Rim) joins the cast this season, in which the U.N. sends the Rocinante crew on a mission to explore new worlds beyond the Ring Gate. The Gate has given humanity access to thousands of Earth-like planets, creating a land rush and heightening tensions between the opposing forces of Earth, Mars, and the Belt. The first of these planets to be inhabited, Ilus, is rich with natural resources, but also spotted with the mysterious ruins of a long-dead alien civilization. While Earthers, Martians, and Belters all maneuver for control of the planet, these early explorers are unaware of its dangers.The Expanse season 4 lands on Amazon Prime Video on December 13.The Orville Moves to Hulu.@hulu will be entering the galaxy as #TheOrville takes off as a new Hulu Original.Season 3 of The Orville will stream exclusively on Hulu in 2020. The Orville (@TheOrville) July 20, 2019The upcoming third season of Seth MacFarlane s space-set drama The Orville will have a new home: The series is moving to Hulu, where it will debut season 3 in late 2020. As the show has evolved and become more ambitious production-wise, I determined that I would not be able to deliver episodes until 2020, which would be challenging for the network. So we began to discuss how best to support the third season in a way that worked for the show, MacFarlane explained in a press release announcing the news, which was revealed at the show s panel.Is Impulse s Henry a Hero or a Villain in Season 2?Lauren LeFranc, showrunner of YouTube’s original sci-fi series Impulse, told fans at the series SDCC panel that the show will delve deeper into the mythology and origins of teleportation in its upcoming second season, due this fall. Injecting more action and humor into the mix, Impulse will continue to give voice to trauma survivors, while also be digging further into the dynamics of our core heroes — and there’ll be a few new baddies thrown into the mix.Henry’s powers will evolve in a chaotic, violent manner, LeFranc warned. And if you’re expecting her to become a full-blown superhero, star Maddie Hasson says to expect the unexpected.“We talk a lot about heroes in the first season, and in the second season we talk a lot about villains,” she explained. “You get to decide what Henry is, and it’s not always what it seems.”Project Blue Book Headed to Roswell in Season 2The upcoming second season of History Channel s UFO-themed Project Blue Book will delve deeper into some famous alleged government coverups that have remained unsolved to this day.David O Leary and executive producer Sean Jablonski told the crowd at the show s SDCC panel that Area 51 and Roswell are just a couple of the cases they ll be exploring. Combine that with the Butch Sundance dynamic of Aiden Gillen s Dr. Hyneck and Michael Malarkey s Captain Quinn, it sounds like the new episodes will be a noir adventure that s sure to make you believe we re not alone in the universe. Project Blue Book returns to History in the winter.

Despite having the lowest Tomatometer score (74%) of the Wizarding World (aka Harry Potter) franchise, spinoff prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is still Certified Fresh and the brand has maintained a positive 83% average. Unfortunately, that’s about to take a dip if the first reviews of the sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald are any indication.With a mixed 55% score out of the gate, the new movie is said to be too convoluted, with too many characters, and all in service of the next movie rather than the installment at hand. Still, if you’re a fan of the franchise, you should be satisfied with all the usual magic, as well as the return of a Professor Dumbledore in younger form.Here’s what critics are saying about the movie:How does it compare to the previous film?A huge step up from the middling Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Caryn James, Hollywood ReporterRowling has improved upon the first Fantastic Beasts film by fleshing out her characters in a way that’s engaging. David Griffin, IGNThe Crimes of Grindelwald takes the first installment and improves upon it tenfold. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentSo far, so good but there’s a counterpoint?It’s less a necessary new chapter in this ongoing story than… an affordable multiplex alternative to whisking the whole family off to the Wizarding World area of Universal Studios. A.A. Dowd, AV ClubAs it turns out, the true crime of Grindelwald was wasting the audience’s time. Karen Han, Polygon[It’s] the noisiest, most rhythmless, and least coherent entry in the Wizarding World saga since Alfonso Cuarón first gave the franchise its sea legs in 2004. Andrew Barker, VarietyWhat always made the Harry Potter films so entrancing was its wonder. But that wonder, once portrayed through the eyes of children, is nowhere to be found. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviews(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)How is the magical spectacle?There s nothing particularly impressive about the CGI feats in the film run-of-the-mill where modern blockbusters are concerned. Karen Han, PolygonMore so than even the last film…The Crimes of Grindelwald has tons of incredible magic effects, dazzling new sets, and adorable (and terrifying) new beasts. Germain Lussier, io9So the beasts are still fantastic?The beasts are the best thing about the movie. Karen Han, PolygonMostly, I got the sense that the creators regretted saddling themselves with the animal theme. Angie Han, MashableBut is there too much going on?The Crimes of Grindelwald throws an awful lot at the screen during this clotted two-hour-plus diversion. Manohla Dargis, New York TimesThere are a lot of moving parts in this film, and too many of them are moving without purpose. Tasha Robinson, The VerveRowling has included so many different characters and sub-plots that the narrative momentum is sometimes lost. Geoffrey Macnab, The IndependentThe Crimes of Grindelwald probably had enough plot to drive a four-hour mini-series. William Bibbiani, The Wrap(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Does it move the franchise forward? At almost every turn, it weaves in broad strokes created only to set up the next movie… The Crimes of Grindelwald doesn’t care about the movie you are watching. Germain Lussier, io9Just like the first one, it still feels like set-up for bigger pay-offs down the line, without the satisfying cliffhanger qualities of, say, The Empire Strikes Back. Ian Freer, Empire MagazineWill we enjoy the familiar characters?Our returning heroes feel less familiar than they did when they were introduced in the last film, thanks to a rash of baffling decisions. Angie Han, MashableWhen [Newt] is allowed to lead this second story, it’s as whimsical and good-hearted as any in the franchise. Kate Erbland, IndieWireNewt remains one of the most distinctive heroes in blockbuster cinema. William Bibbiani, The WrapThe best of the bunch, once again, is the illicit muggle-mage coupling of Jacob and Queenie, who burst into the film’s early stages like an enchanted Tim Curry and Bernadette Peters. Andrew Barker, VarietyQueenie and Jacob often seem to be starring in a different, potentially more interesting movie. Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Are there any great newcomers?Of the newer characters, the only real standout is Leta Lestrange, played by the effortlessly compelling Zoe Kravitz. Angie Han, MashableZoë Kravitz as Leta is pretty fantastic and I love where they go with her character in the film. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentHow is Jude Law as Dumbledore?Jude Law captures the quick wit, easy charm and cloying inscrutability of the character. William Bibbiani, The WrapWisely, Law doesn’t try to channel Michael Gambon or Richard Harris… he gives the character the calm, warmth and understanding that has made him such a beloved figure. Caryn James, Hollywood ReporterIs Johnny Depp a problem?For all of the controversy surrounding Johnny Depp s casting, it s strange just how underutilized he is. Eric Eisenberg, Cinema BlendDepp is also supremely average as Grindewald. He simply mails it in. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviewsJohnny Depp is instantly captivating as the titular villain and damn creepy, too. David Griffin, IGNHis portrayal of Grindelwald rekindles memories of his old mentor, Vincent Price. Geoffrey Macnab, The IndependentJohnny Depp is fine, if you can forget about his ugly personal life. Angie Han, MashableRyan FujitaniIs this movie just for the fans?It s a movie built special for aficionados of the Wizarding World. Eric Eisenberg, Cinema BlendIt’s hard to imagine anyone but hardcore Potterheads getting emotionally involved in this film’s convoluted plotting and ancestral reveals. Tasha Robinson, The VerveRowling seems to be playing to the fans in the thinnest way possible, building in stories that require foreknowledge to appreciate them fully. Kate Erbland, IndieWireThe Crimes of Grindelwald is enough to make J.K. Rowling fans weep in frustration, provided they can even keep their eyes open. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesWill we walk out anticipating part three?The twisty plot leads to an explosive climax…including a jaw-dropper for the Potter faithful that’ll have them clamoring for the threequel. Brian Truitt, USA TodayThe Crimes of Grindelwald is rich and intriguing fare that will leave viewers impatient for the next sequel. Geoffrey Macnab, The IndependentIt’s hard not to worry about the franchise heading in a similar direction. Andrew Barker, VarietyFantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens everywhere on Friday, November 16.

Comic book stories get a boost on streaming, Covid-19 causes some talent to pass on jobs requiring air travel, new trailers include WandaVision and The Undoing, and more news from the world of TV and streaming.TOP STORYThe Boys Spinoff Is in the Works(Photo by James Minchin/Amazon Prime Video)Clearly fans cannot get enough of The Boys, so Amazon Studios has greenlit development of a spin-off series from Sony Pictures Television. Here s the description: Set at America s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International), the Untitled Boys Spinoff is an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys. The spin-off is from Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television in association with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises, and Original Film. The Boys is based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and season 2 of The Boys had the most-watched global launch of an Amazon Original series ever.Craig Rosenberg is writing the pilot for the spinoff and set as showrunner/EP, falling under his overall deal with Sony Pictures Television. Rosenberg, Eric Kripke; Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver; and Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty are executive producers. Ennis and Robertson also serve as executive producers.The Suicide Squad Writer and Director James Gunn Will Write and Direct John Cena in the Peacemaker Series(Photo by HBO Max)It’s an action-adventure-comedy about a man who wants peace so badly he’s willing to kill for it: meet Peacemaker! Wrestling champion-turned-actor John Cena is already playing the DC Comics character in the August 2021 big-screen The Suicide Squad movie, and now HBO Max is expanding Peacemaker’s world with an eight-episode series written and directed by The Suicide Squad movie writer and director James Gunn. Specifics are scarce, but the streaming service confirms the series will explore the origins of Peacemaker, the “master of weapons” and a man who “believes in peace at any cost — no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.” The series is scheduled to begin production early in 2021, before Gunn turns his attention to production on the third Guardians of the Galaxy film.“Peacemaker is an opportunity to delve into current world issues through the lens of this superhero/supervillain/and world’s biggest douchebag,” Gunn says. “I’m excited to expand The Suicide Squad and bring this character from the DC film universe to the full breadth of a series.”Nick Fury Marvel Disney+ Series Reportedly in the Works with Samuel L. Jackson Reprising His MCU Role(Photo by Paramount Network)And Nick Fury makes eight! That s the number of series Marvel Studios has in the works for Disney+, according to a new report that quotes unnamed sources who say that Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role from the MCU films. The exact plot details of the show are being kept under wraps, but multiple sources say Jackson is attached to star with Kyle Bradstreet attached to write and executive produce, according to the Variety article.Tony Gilroy and Liv Tyler Change Rogue One and 9-1-1: Lone Star Plans Because of Pandemic Travel Concerns(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)Tony Gilroy has dropped out as a director on the upcoming Disney+ Rogue One spin-off series. Gilroy, who will remain as showrunner and executive producer of the series, lives in New York, and didn’t feel comfortable travelling to the U.K. where the spin-off will be filmed. Instead, U.K.-based Toby Haynes will direct the first three episodes of the series starring Diego Luna reprising his movie role as Cassian Andor. Haynes, who directed the Emmy-winning “USS Callister” episode of Black Mirror, is also the lead director on Amazon’s upcoming John Cusack drama Utopia. (Deadline)For similar reasons, Liv Tyler won’t return for season 2 of Fox’s hit drama 9-1-1: Lone Star. She commuted from her London home to Los Angeles for the first season, but concerns about transatlantic travel with her young children during the pandemic led her to end her run at one year. Gina Torres has joined the series as the new paramedic captain.

The injury, which happened at a dinner following a fan convention in Vancouver, left Hogan with complete paralysis on his left side, memory loss, cognitive impairment and an inability to swallow, according to his wife, actress Susan Hogan. The pandemic then complicated his hospitalization and care even further, not only limiting Susan’s ability to have contact with her husband, but limiting certain medical professionals from treating him for months.Hogan, who played Colonel Saul Tigh on BSG and most recently played the ex-convict father of Nathan Grant on the seventh season of Hallmark’s drama When Calls the Heart, is, of course, unable to work currently, and, months later, still faces a very long and expensive road to recovery. A friend and neighbor of the Hogans established a Go Fund Me page with the goal of raising 0,000 for Michael’s care, and donations from fans, BSG co-stars like Tricia Helfer and James Callis and When Calls the Heart director Peter DeLuise, and other industry professionals have helped in getting the ongoing effort close to that amount.NEW TRAILERS: The Undoing: Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant’s Happy Marriage Turns Tragic in David E.
