Ever wondered how Axel Foley would fare in a Saw movie? Your ponderings are about to be answered in Spiral: From the Book of Saw, a reboot of the terrifying franchise famous for its inventive murder traps. The movie’s star, Chris Rock, says that he wanted to bring humor – and a sharp look at social issues – to the series, which he’s loved for a long time, and see how an Eddie Murphy-style cop would operate in a horror film. Ahead of the movie’s release, Rotten Tomatoes correspondent Naz Perez sat down with Rock to talk about his move into more dramatic material, the mood on set, and just how scary the movie’s epic traps are in real-life. Plus, Perez spoke with co-stars Max Minghella and Marisol Nichols, and director Darren Lynn Bousman, who revealed just how the Saw team dreams up their brutal contraptions, builds them, and eventually tests them.

On June 22, 36 years have passed since the release of The Karate Kid, the story of an underdog, who explores a life unfamiliar to him, and who — with the help of a grumpy old man — raises himself up to be a champion. The 1984 film, directed by John Avildsen and written by Robert Kamen, had a lasting influence on the movie experience — future sports films would measure their stories against the tenacity and resolve on display in The Karate Kid, and Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, and William Zabka would enjoy a bright moment in the Hollywood sun.That sunlight faded after a time, as new heroes rose — mutants and aliens boasting super-human powers — and now, as their sweet summer dims, Macchio and Zabka have been coaxed back into the open to revisit their beloved characters of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence in YouTube Premium series Cobra Kai, now available on Netflix.Season 1 was a Certified Fresh hit. All 43 critics that reviewed the season gave it a Fresh rating, landing Cobra Kai — the unlikely streaming TV revival of a slumbering monster film franchise — in our prestigious 100% TV season club. The series also brought back other familiar faces from the original movie, including Martin Kove, who played the Cobra Kai dojo s original alpha-male sensei Kreese in the film, and heartwarming tributes to the humble handyman and teacher Miyagi, played by Morita, who died in 2005.With Season 1 and 2 now on Netflix, with a third Cobra Kai season set to premiere in 2021, we sat down with Macchio and Zabka to talk about what got them back to the dojo, and paying homage to Morita.What follows is a history of Cobra Kai (2018-) and reflection upon the series beginnings, drawn from a sit-down interview with Macchio and Zabka.ALSO WATCH: ORAL HISTORY OF THE KARATE KID WITH RALPH MACCHIO AND WILLIAM ZABKA“It became part of the American lexicon at some point.”Ralph Macchio: “I mean, certainly in the earlier years, from the ’80s into the early ’90s, you had all those images of the crane kick, or the lines like, ‘Get him a body bag’ or ‘Sweep the leg.’ ‘Wax on, wax off.’ [The Karate Kid] became part of the American lexicon at some point. But I think the internet, if you will, or the ability for everyone to be able to talk and spread their voice, really is where it amped up to that other level.And then you have the How I Met Your Mother of it all, which was a show that always teed up from Barney Stinson s perspective of the real Karate Kid. And then that became this whole pop culture thing, and then other videos made. And that set the stage for, I think, the series Cobra Kai fan base coming to the table all amped up for decades of discussion. And it s cool that it all collided in such a good big way.”“We have to go convince Ralph Macchio. William Zabka: “Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, the creators of Cobra Kai, emailed me and they said, ‘Let’s have lunch and talk to you about a project that we re excited about.’ So I said, ‘OK. Where do you want to meet? There s a Mexican restaurant down the street from my house. Let s meet there.’(Photo by YouTube Premium)So we go in and go and sit at this back table, and the chips come, and they re telling the waiters to leave, and then it was just spitfire, like the three-headed dragon, just a machine gun of information. Like, ‘OK, so here it is. We re huge fans of Karate Kid. We love your work. We want to do this. It s called Cobra Kai. We got the rights of Karate Kid. You re Johnny Lawrence. You re like bad sensei, you re like Walter Matthau in Bad News Bears. You re gonna be the anti-hero.’ And I was like, ‘What? You can t just go do this.’I ve had a lot of ideas presented. I ve thought my own self, like, ‘What can I do more in a satire type of way?’ Because I never could imagine getting the rights to do Johnny Lawrence again. And after The Karate Kid with Jaden Smith came out, I felt like it was really all over. Like, ‘It s moved on.’ … This, it just felt right. And I said, ‘What s the next step?’ They said, ‘Well, we have to go convince Ralph Macchio.’ I said, ‘OK.’”“Oh, crap, I hope this works.”Macchio: “They flew to New York. We met down in Tribeca area, and we spent more than a couple hours. They led off with talking about the themes. They were very focused. I could tell they were nervous, but Hayden, he started right away, and says, Bullying. I would love to have the footage of their pitch to Billy, to convince him, and their pitch to me, because they were different. They didn t start off saying, ‘We want to do the Johnny Lawrence story about Cobra Kai and make him the hero of the story.’ They started talking about themes, so credit them. They did a great job. They were also very well-versed in what they wanted to do, the angle. And they did tell me the title of the show. They weren t trying to say, ‘Oh, it s not gonna be that.’ I knew what it was.My biggest question was they were pitching it as a comedy. I said, ‘Well, where s the funny? What s the tone?’ That was the main question, and where s the Miyagi-isms, and how is that going to be woven into it? Because if it s not, then I m not interested. I need for it to have balance, if you will, across the board of the Karate Kid universe, even though the angle in from the Johnny Lawrence story is super smart.(Photo by YouTube Premium)I felt that they were the guys. I knew from Hot Tub Time Machine and Harold and Kumar that they knew [the humor]. I believed they could write for a young generation and humor and great teen dialogue, which I felt was really important for the show to have that. That s really shedding light in going to season 2 and beyond, because we have this great young cast. I needed to digest it all, but I believed that they were the guys. They wanted to make the show the fans wanted to see, because they were those kids.And then timing: 15 [or] 10 years ago there was no YouTube or Netflix, or a place where you could take a five, six-hour movie and cut it up into parts. We shoot this show and each season is like a full-on movie that you just cut up. You allow the characters to breathe and delve into gray areas, and it s not just so black-and-white and leading to one big quick climax two hours later. All those things together got me to the place of saying, ‘OK, let s do this.’ But not without me closing my eyes, holding my breath, and saying, ‘Oh, crap, I hope this works.’ Now we seem like the two smartest guys in the world.”“We hadn t done this for 35-some years all of sudden, he walks in and it was just on.”Zabka: “My first scene was with Ed Asner, so how s that for day 1 on a show: working with a legend? It s the scene when I walk in and Ed Asner s in my refrigerator. So they just started me at full speed, and it was great, and he was great — I mean really great. What an honor. It felt like he kissed the show in a way, and he blessed it in a way, by his presence being there. It just felt like wow, we re way up here.”(Photo by YouTube Premium)Macchio: “Our first scene together is still one of my favorites in the Cobra Kai series. The first scene I shot was at the end of episode 2, where LaRusso comes into the Cobra Kai dojo and it s a little stare-down, and they question each other, and it just sets up the entire series. That scene was magic, man. We worked together in a film 30-plus years ago, and we ve been friends for years. But that level of chemistry that we have, I didn t know that it was there at the level that it s now turned out to be. It s just a reminder that this project, be it The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai, has some element that the bar just gets raised and we deliver. I m proud of it.”Zabka: “We hadn t done this for 35-some years now, right? And all of sudden, he walks in and it was just on, and everything else was gone, and it was these two characters exist again in this setting. We walked away. We re like, ‘Wow, there s something really happening.’”“It s warm and wonderful and bittersweet. Pat would ve loved this.”Macchio: “All the time, I think about Pat and his performance. Listen, we re not making the show without Pat Morita s performance as Mr. Miyagi, because that s one of the things that elevated that film to what it is today. They re big shoes to fill. I mean, LaRusso has a line like that early in season 2 — he looks at a picture of Miyagi and says, ‘Boy, I ve got big shoes to fill.’He learns very soon that just because you have knowledge of a subject doesn t necessarily mean you can teach it. And Mr. Miyagi was a magical type character who had a special touch, and LaRusso is learning that he might not have that — or he has to find his own. View this post on Instagram Shooting a poignant Miyagi-influenced scene on @cobrakaiseries then, moments later a surprise visit from Pat Morita’s daughter, Aly makes this one of the most memorable days on the show. All the feels from above and beyond. Another stroke of Miyagi Magic graces the day. Thanks, Aly 🙂 And as always, thank you, Pat. 🙏🥋A post shared by ralph_macchio (@ralph_macchio) on Oct 24, 2018 at 9:47am PDT
Today s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news, covering titles such as Candyman, Pinocchio, Spider-Women, and Venom 2.This WEEK S TOP STORYGUILLERMO DEL TORO REVEALS OVER 15 MOVIES READY TO GO(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Long before Guillermo del Toro won the Best Picture Oscar this year for The Shape of Water, it was well known that he had a long list of shelved movies in his past. That little golden man on his mantle has changed a lot for GDT, including his new deal at Fox Searchlight that basically set him up with his own mini-studio for horror/genre films. This week, Guillermo del Toro took to Twitter to list over 15 unproduced screenplays that he has completely finished, which are basically ready to go projects for any studio that wants to work with him on them. The most common theme to the list is remakes, including The Count of Monte Cristo, Fantastic Voyage, The Haunted Mansion (which is Disney s), Nightmare Alley, The Witches, and Beauty and the Beast (with Emma Watson, who eventually starred in Disney s remake instead). There s also the spooky DC Comics super team Justice League Dark (featuring Constantine and Swamp Thing), adaptations of the novels Drood and List of 7, and H.P. Lovecraft s At the Mountains of Madness (which infamously almost got made with Tom Cruise, at one point). Other intriguing titles include The Buried Giant, The Coffin, Mephisto s Bridge, and Superstitious. One of them is just called Secret Project (Untitled), which might be especially interesting since, at one point, The Shape of Water was also basically known as Secret Project (Untitled). Probably the least likely of these projects to ever actually happen are Pacific Rim 2 (since it was replaced by Pacific Rim: Uprising) and a pilot episode for a once-planned Hulk TV show reboot. So, will any studios now step up to any of these?Fresh Developments1. SPIDER-VERSE SEQUEL AND SPINOFF ALREADY PLANNED(Photo by Sony Pictures)Sony s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is still two weeks away from release, but it also already has a 100% Tomatometer from 49 reviews to date. That has to be part of the reason that Sony has announced early development has started on both a direct sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and a spinoff focusing on Spider-Women. That spinoff will focus on three generations of female superheroes with spider powers, with Spider-Gwen from the first movie likely to be one of the three. Other possibilities might include Jessica Drew (the original Spider-Woman), Madame Web, Arachne, Araña, and Spider-Girl. (To make things confusing, there have been three Spider-Women, two Madame Webs, and two Spider-Girls.) These two animated films join a growing slate of Marvel movies at Sony that also includes Venom 2, Morbius (AKA The Living Vampire), Black Cat, Silver Sable, Kraven the Hunter, Jackpot, Nightwatch, and Silk.2. TOM HANKS MAY PLAY GEPPETTO IN DISNEY S PINOCCHIO REMAKE (Photo by Jaap Buitendijk/Walt Disney Studios)2019 is going to be a big year for Disney s remakes of their animated features, with Dumbo (3/29/19), Aladdin (5/24/19), and The Lion King (7/19/19) all scheduled for release. Then, in 2020, we re also going to get Mulan (3/27/20), Maleficent II (5/29/20), and possibly another (Disney has a few untitled movies on their 2020 schedule right now). The studio shows no signs of slowing down, and this week, we received our first casting news for their Pinocchio remake. Toy Story and Saving Mr. Banks star Tom Hanks is now in talks with Disney to play the toymaker Geppetto for director Paul King, whose Paddington 2 is still Certified Fresh at an impressive 100% on the Tomatometer. In related news, Tim Allen (AKA Buzz Lightyear) recently revealed another new detail about next year s Toy Story 4 (6/21/19) while on The Tonight Show, disclosing that Keanu Reeves will be joining the Toy Story franchise as a character that sounds too much like Buzz Lightyear. The other major sequel that Keanu Reeves has coming out next year is John Wick: Chapter 3 (5/3/2019).3. RITA MORENO RETURNING IN SPIELBERG S REMAKE OF WEST SIDE STORYWhen filmmakers remake or sequelize classic films, they frequently cast one of the original stars (Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins Returns is a perfect example of that). For his remake of the 10-time Academy Award-winning 1961 musical West Side Story, Steven Spielberg is following suit. EGOT winner Rita Moreno played Anita in the original West Side Story, and she is now set to co-star in Spielberg s remake of the film. Moreno s character will be named Valentina, a reimagined version of the corner store owner named Doc (played in the original film by Ned Glass). Moreno is the second new cast member following the casting of Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) last month as Tony. It is not yet known if Twin Peaks co-stars (and the original s two male leads) Richard Beymer and Russ Tamblyn will also be cast in the West Side Story remake (Natalie Wood, who played Maria in the original, died in 1981).4. JORDAN PEELE PRODUCING CANDYMAN REMAKE FOR 2020 (Photo by TriStar Pictures)In September, we first heard that Get Out director Jordan Peele was producing a remake of the 1992 horror film Candyman. Just two months later, the Candyman remake already has a director, a studio, and a release date. MGM has kind of made remakes their thing, with recent films like Ben-Hur, The Magnificent Seven, Death Wish, Tomb Raider, Overboard, and A Star is Born. The Candyman remake will be directed by Nia DaCosta, who made her debut with the indie modern Western Little Woods (currently Fresh at 100%). MGM and Universal Pictures have scheduled Candyman for release on June 12, 2020, which puts it a week after Wonder Woman 1984 and the week before a secret Pixar/Disney film.5. DC COMICS MOVES FORWARD WITH BLUE BEETLE SOLO MOVIE(Photo by DC Comics)Since 1939, there have been three iterations of the DC Comics superhero called Blue Beetle, starting with this one, after which, for the longest run, there was Justice League member Ted Kord (best known, probably, for teaming up with Booster Gold). The first Blue Beetle was sort of like Shazam, and the second was similar in some ways to Batman, but starting in 2006, the third Blue Beetle had a symbiote that makes him sort of like Venom. That Blue Beetle is a young hero named Jaime Reyes, and this week, Warner Bros revealed their plans to make Blue Beetle the first stand-alone title to feature a Latino lead. (It should be noted that the star of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is Miles Morales, whose mom is Puerto Rican.) Blue Beetle will be written by Mexican-born screenwriter Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, who also wrote the upcoming remake of Scarface.6. VIOLA DAVIS BRINGING THE FIGHTING SHIRLEY CHISHOLM TO AMAZON (AND THEATERS) Although Netflix is probably the most prolific streaming service, it was actually Amazon Studios that made history in 2017 when Manchester by the Sea made it the first streaming service to be nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award. Earlier this week, the news broke that Viola Davis JuVee Productions had set up a new deal at Amazon Studios, and just three days later, we learned what their first project will be. Confirming Amazon s continued interest in producing the sorts of films that can compete for major awards, Davis has set up the political biopic The Fighting Shirley Chisholm. In 1972, U.S. Representative Shirley Chisholm made history twice as both the first African American (of either major party) and the first female Democrat to become an official candidate for President of the United States. The Fighting Shirley Chisholm will be directed by Maggie Betts (Novitiate), working from a screenplay by Adam Countee (of TV s Community, Silicon Valley, and The Mindy Project).7. DONALD GLOVER, RIHANNA, AND LETITIA WRIGHT HEADED FOR GUAVA ISLAND(Photo by Guy D'Alema/FX)This week, the first teaser trailer for next summer s The Lion King remake broke records for Disney, but the movie s star, Donald Glover, is also working on another movie for 2019 as well. Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino), Rihanna, and Letitia Wright (Shuri from Black Panther) reportedly went to Cuba this August to film a secret movie that was revealed this week to be called Guava Island. The first teaser trailer doesn t really reveal anything else about the project, except that it s a Childish Gambino movie directed by frequent Glover collaborator Hiro Murai, who also directed episodes of Atlanta and several Childish Gambino music videos, including This is America.8. KINGSMAN PREQUEL ATTRACTS IMPRESSIVE CAST(Photo by Giles Keyte/20th Century Fox Film Corp.)When Kingsman: The Secret Service was released in 2015, it was Certified Fresh at 75% on the Tomatometer. Last year s sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, however, did considerably poorer, scoring just 52%. With that in mind, we re tempted to call this week s news Rotten, except that it s, well, kind of cool. First, it s sounding like there will actually be two Kingsman movies filming in 2019: a prequel and a proper Kingsman 3. The prequel is the one that sparked the biggest headlines, as director Matthew Vaughn has reportedly cast (or is negotiating to cast) Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War), Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones), Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man), and Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort from the Harry Potter franchise). The Kingsman prequel will reportedly be a period drama about the actual tailor shop that serves as a front for the secret British spy agency.
(Photo by ©20th Century Fox Films Corp. courtesy Everett Collection)If you grew up in the 90s, chances are your first exposure to anime was either Pokémon or Digimon, and your parents would regularly mix one up with the other. Honestly, it s not that hard to see why. Both shows originated as video games Digimon started out as Tamagotchi-like virtual pets and Pokémon was a series of role-playing games before expanding to trading cards, TV shows, and movies.While Pokémon grew to become a multimedia juggernaut that has churned out TV seasons non-stop since 1997 and produced over 20 feature films, Digimon has quietly but steadily remained in its shadow since it premiered in 1999. But with the recent release of Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna, and with the franchise s first film, Digimon: The Movie, celebrating its 20th anniversary this month, it s about time we take out our Digivice, become champions of the Digital World, and explore why Digimon is the superior 90s franchise about young kids who befriend small fighting monsters.It Was Appointment TV(Photo by FOX)By the late 90s, we were already entering the era of prestige TV, as the arrival of shows like The Sopranos and The West Wing, with a stronger focus on serialized narratives, forced people to tune in every week or risk missing important plot points. Though children s television at the time was mostly episodic, Digimon marked a groundbreaking development for many kids of the era who discovered that they too had to watch every episode if they wanted to follow along with the story.Many episodes ended on cliffhangers, characters experienced genuine story arcs, and smaller events and characters were frequently referenced later. Sometimes, major characters would be separated from each other for weeks at a time, and side characters would suddenly become important. This made for a more challenging but rewarding experience that treated children like a serious TV-viewing audience. More than anything, the show trusted its young viewers to keep up with its narrative week by week, so that by the time the epic finale came each season, the anticipation for it had been building for months.It Tackled Mature Subjects(Photo by FOX)Digimon is very much a Saturday morning cartoon-style show aimed at kids, but it got away with a surprising amount of depth. Unlike many of its contemporaries, Digimon featured character development that would unfold over the course of each season. The second season spent a lot of time telling the story of the self-proclaimed Digimon Emperor, who is consumed by darkness and begins to take over the Digital World before atoning for his sins in a redemption arc that spans several episodes.The show also explored themes that were relatable to kids but seldom seen in kids cartoons, like exploring the effects of a divorce on a family, the pressure of living up to one s family s expectations, or the grief of losing a loved one. In the third season, a character named Jeri is even thrown into a weeks-long depression after the death of a Digimon friend. Indeed, Digimon fully acknowledged that its titular creatures are dangerous beings, and danger lurks behind every corner, sometimes with devastating results. The show was upbeat and action-packed for the most part, but it was never afraid to pull at your heartstrings, either.Its Stakes Were Incredibly High(Photo by FOX)Digimon isn t about collecting all the monsters, or about fighting a new villain each week; it s about kids on a mission to literally save the world. No offense to Jessie and James of Pokémon s Team Rocket, but they aren t the most competent villains out there. Meanwhile, the Digital World of Digimon is home to some seriously monstrous villains capable of ruthless evil. Each season hinges on world-ending stakes that require the kids to work against all odds with the help of a friend or two to win the day. In most of the seasons (as well as the recent movie and new reboot), the Digital World even leaks into the real world, threatening to destroy everything.Such high stakes have meant that the series has lost more than a few of its characters. This may be a children s show, but Digimon has never been afraid to kill off beloved heroes in heartbreaking ways we still haven t healed from the devastating loss of Wizardmon in the original series. Plenty of friends and allies have met their demise over the course of the show, so much so that one character held a funeral for lost friends during the first season. But sure, remind me how sad it was when Ash said goodbye to Butterfree — which wasn t even permanent.The Movie Is Bonkers and Has a Fantastic, Totally 90s Soundtrack(Photo by Everett Collection)Speaking of high stakes, the plot of Digimon: The Movie is completely nuts. The main characters (still 10 years old, by the way) literally have to prevent a nuclear warhead from exploding over Tokyo after a virus-infected Digimon takes over the U.S. nuclear arsenal specifically to target a couple of kids. It takes a while for the kids to bring the fight to the bad guy, though, because they also have to battle… slow internet connections and the unreliable email.Considering the movie was cobbled together from three short films and packaged for release outside of Japan, it s a wonder the story makes any sense at all. It s also worth noting that two of those three short films were the early efforts of acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda, who would go on to make films like The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, and Mirai.But the greatest thing about Digimon: The Movie isn t its ludicrous story, but its bizarre yet surprisingly solid soundtrack. Just as Pokémon: The First Movie included songs by Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and NSYNC, the producers of Digimon went all out to make their movie the most 90s event ever. In addition to the show s theme song, which reflects a time when every anime show was marketed to American audiences with hip hop, the film s pop soundtrack includes everything from Fatboy Slim, Barenaked Ladies sexually-charged One Week, and a fantastic cover of Kids in America by Len to a pre-Shrek All Star by the one and only Smash Mouth to close out the film. That s right, pre-Shrek. Meme or not, that s hard to top.It Knew How to End(Photo by Toei Animation)Franchises eventually change, whether they re Star Wars, Marvel, or Toy Story, but Pokémon, despite an occasional change of scenery, has otherwise remained pretty much the same, plot- and character-wise. Digimon, on the other hand, always knew its audience was eventually going to grow up, so it grew up with them. 2015 saw the release of Digimon Tri, a series of movies that picked up 5 years after the end of the original show, with the characters now in high-school. Then, Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna came out earlier this year and, like Toy Story 3 did for a little while, actually dared to say goodbye to the franchise with a story that signals from the get-go that it will be Agumon and Tai s final adventure.Digimon s audience came of age with the franchise because Digimon is a coming-of-age story. It recognized its place in the audience s life and has grown to reflect the same changes its audience has experienced. Digimon knows some things from our childhood will inevitably have to be left behind. Though the series was ultimately rebooted earlier this year, Last Evolution Kizuna puts a bittersweet bow on 20 years of adventures that began with Digimon Adventure and Digimon: The Movie, which is an example that more franchises honestly should follow.Digimon: The Movie was released in theaters on October 6, 2000.On an Apple device?

Nowadays it s generally accepted that the two-part final episode, unsubtly-titled The End, was divisive at best, but back when the finale aired on May 23, 2010, it earned mostly positive reviews, and was even nominated for an Emmy for both best directing and best writing.On its 10th anniversary, we have to go back to the island and revisit all the reasons The End worked as an encapsulation of everything that made Lost a great series.THE SHOW WAS ALWAYS BUILDING TO THAT ENDING(Photo by Reisig & Taylor/© ABC/Courtesy: Everett Collection)Though the grand mysteries involving magic corks and polar bears became the dominant narrative around Lost, what they say about the show being all about the characters remains true. Sure, we did get plenty of plot twists and surprises, but these revelations were always character-driven: from the show s first flash-forward being revealed through a trauma-ridden and beard-having Jack, or Desmond s time-traveling told as a love story between him and his constant, Penny. This continued all the way to the finale, which of course had the magical cork, and the flash-sideways being an allegory for the after-life, but both served to inform Jack s journey of learning to let go. Letting go of his need to fix everything, letting go of his obsession to do everything himself and not accepting help, and letting go of his father.This character-driven conclusion to the story was telegraphed to the audience for years. Showrunner Carton Cuse said in 2006, You have to watch because you’re enjoying the journey, not because you are waiting for the endgame. Lost always used its mystery as a way to dive into the characters psyche and advance their individual stories, not the other way around. There was never going to be a lengthy explanation about what everything meant, as showrunner and co-creator Damon Lindelof told The Verge in 2012, they were shooting for an ending that gave an explanation as to why the plane crash mattered to the characters and what they got out of it. The answer, as corny as it sounds, was the one that appealed to me the most: each other, Lindelof said. If they hadn t spent all that time on the island, then they would never have been able to forgive themselves for their past sins and break through to some sort of level of self-awakening and forgiveness. THE ENDING ENCAPSULATES THE SHOW S BIGGER IDEAS ABOUT PHILOSOPHY(Photo by Mario Perez / © ABC / Courtesy: Everett Collection)For all the times that Jack and Locke fought about science versus faith, neither able to fully convince the other, the Lost finale ultimately sided with faith being the answer, whatever form that takes. The questions regarding the origin of the polar bears or the electromagnetic properties of the island gave way to mythological tales of immortal 2,000-year-old entities and more abstract questions regarding whether there s a purpose behind suffering and what suffering we must go through to achieve grace.Indeed, the philosophical nature of the show has been there since the beginning. There are several characters named after known philosophers, and from early in the first season the characters discuss whether the island is purgatory and they re being punished by some higher power. This idea of punishment and sin carried on all the way to The End, with the characters learning from their past sins and move on having become better people. Though it dabbled in big battles between good and evil with the fate of the world on the line, Cuse said in 2014 at PaleyFest that Lost was metaphorically about lost people looking for meaning in their lives, so the ending had to be a spiritual one that explained these characters’ journey and destiny. This is why the flash-sideways are so meaningful for the show at large and especially the finale. As Jack gives his life to save both the island and his friends and the battle between good and evil comes to an end, the sideways characters remember their lives and achieve some kind of grace or bliss. They all needed each other to find themselves and some catharsis before moving on, living up to the title of the show itself: Lost.SIDE CHARACTERS GOT SATISFYING CURTAIN CALLS(Photo by Mario Perez/© ABC/Courtesy Everett Collection)While Jack fought to stop the Man in Black (who had taken Locke s body) on the island, Desmond was busy gathering everyone in the sideways afterlife. Though not incredibly important to the plot this was a fantastic way of letting the audience say goodbye to characters they hadn t seen in years.Whether it s Shannon reuniting with Sayid, Boone and Libby showing up one last time, Rose and Bernard revealing they ve been living a nice and quiet life on the island, or Vincent the dog returning and lying next to a dying Jack, the flash-sideways allowed Lost to shine a light on side characters we ve lost over the years for one last goodbye.THE CALL-BACKS ARE SPOT ON, AS IS THE FINAL SHOT(Photo by Mario Perez / © ABC / Courtesy: Everett Collection)The finale of Lost also makes it a point to revisit some of the show s greatest hits to have the story come full circle and underscore the changes the characters have gone through. Sawyer calls Jack doc in the sideways universe, while leading Desmond down a cave to pull out the cork from the heart of the island, the evil version of Locke points out that it feels nostalgic to stare down a hole in the ground with Jack (a callback to the hatch from season 1). The Man in Black s death is even shot to echo Jacob s death from season 5.Then there s Jack s death scene, which begins with him being stabbed in the opposite side of his abdomen as when he woke up after the crash in the pilot, before walking through the bamboo fields where Vincent the dog comes to greet him. The closing shot of the show, Jack watching the plane carrying his friends fly off as he closes his eye, the reverse of the opening shot of the show, is absolutely perfect.WE ALL FELT THE GIACCHINO Composer Michael Giacchino s work on the show was one of Lost’s secret weapons. Each episode, Giacchino would write the show s emotional, haunting, soaring music that accompanied the story for six seasons. In a move that was and remains rare on TV, Giacchino worked with a live orchestra instead of just with a synthesizer, which added to the gravitas and power of the show s score. Cuse and Lindelof coined the term The Giacchino to signal the feelings they wanted to convey through music. As Cuse once told the LA Times, We literally write Michael s name into the script in various places where we want to convey a sense of emotion. Sawyer and Juliet s reunion in the finale wouldn t work half as well without Giacchino underscoring the emotion of the scene, nor would the scene where Jack s father explains to him the nature of the sideways timeline, which becomes an instant tearjerker because of the score. If Lost is about the characters going on a journey, Giacchino s music takes the audience on a similar emotional journey.Lost is available to stream by subscription on Hulu and Amazon Prime Video (with ads), or rent or buy it at FandangoNOW, Vudu, and iTunes.
Weekend Box Office Results: Halloween Kills Its Hybrid Release with Million Debut October 17, 2021
亚博网页版登录 This Week s Ketchup brings you another eight headlines from the world of film development news (those stories about what movies Hollywood is working on for you next), covering up-and-coming titles like The New Gods, A Quiet Place 2, and Disney s Snow White.This WEEK S TOP STORYROBERT PATTINSON CONFIRMED FOR THE BATMAN (Photo by Dee Cercone/Everett Collection)Two weeks ago, the news broke that Twilight Saga star Robert Pattinson was in talks with Warner Bros. to star in The Batman (6/25/2021). That news, however, was watered down slightly by various whoa nelly stories that suggested Warner Bros. was still considering other stars (Nicholas Hoult, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Armie Hammer) for the role in case Pattinson didn t ultimately sign on. Well, you can disregard all of those names now, because Variety has confirmed that Pattinson has indeed signed on with Warner Bros. to star in The Batman. Although no production start date has been announced yet, the studio is expected to start pre-production this summer (which suggests filming will start late this year or early 2020 at the absolutely latest). The Batman will be directed by Matt Reeves, who is coming off directing the two most recent Planet of the Apes movies. Although it hasn t yet been confirmed, the news also broke last week that the villains in The Batman may be Catwoman and the Penguin, suggesting echoes of 1992 s Batman Returns.Fresh Developments1. MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL, WILL THE SPIDER-MAN DIRECTOR GET THE SNOW WHITE CALL?Aladdin is now in theaters and on top of the box office charts, The Lion King is coming this summer (7/19/2019), and both Mulan (3/27/2020) and Cruella (12/23/2020) are due next year. We re deep into Disney s ongoing slate of movies based on their classic animated films, and the number of truly popular films yet to be adapted is getting smaller every year. One of the remaining classics is 1937 s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Certified Fresh at 98%), Walt Disney s first animated feature film. Disney may have slowed down plans for a live action Snow White to separate their remake from Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman, but those 2012 films are now seven years in the past. With that possibly in mind, Walt Disney Pictures is now developing their live action Snow White, and director Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man, 500 Days of Summer) is in talks for the job. Screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary, The Girl on the Train) is in talks to adapt the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, which will incorporate new songs by La La Land songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.2. AUDIENCES WILL RETURN TO A QUIET PLACE TWO MONTHS EARLIER(Photo by Jonny Cournoyer/Paramount)When A Quiet Place was released on April 6, 2018, the thrilling trailers helped it attract a surprisingly big opening box office weekend of .2 million, which was almost three times its production budget. Paramount Pictures was quick to schedule a sequel for next May (5/15/2020), and the studio signed John Krasinski to return as director, once again working with his wife Emily Blunt. (Batman Begins star Cillian Murphy will also be co-starring in the sequel.) Paramount delivered more good news for A Quiet Place fans this week, as the studio has bumped the sequel up two months to March 20, 2020, which is just two weeks shy of two years after the first film. The A Quiet Place sequel is now scheduled for the week after The Invisible Man and Godzilla vs Kong (3/13/2020), and the week before Disney s Mulan (3/27/2020).3. BATMAN COMIC BOOK WRITER ADAPTING THE NEW GODS (Photo by Atsushi Nishijima/Paramount Pictures)Back in 2015, there was a period when Marvel Studios was talking to Ava DuVernay (Selma, A Wrinkle in Time) about possibly directing last year s Black Panther. She obviously didn t take the job (Ryan Coogler did), but within a month of its release, DuVernay landed a job at Warner Bros. to direct a movie based on DC Comics The New Gods. We haven t heard much about New Gods in the year since, but it s still in active development with the news this week that WB has hired comic book writer Tom King to adapt the last few decades of New Gods comics into a single movie. King s comic book work includes Mister Miracle (potentially one of DuVernay s New Gods) and DC s current weekly Batman series. The premise and cast of DuVernay s New Gods isn t yet known, but the director has Tweeted in the past that Big Barda (Mister Miracle s wife) is her favorite superhero.4. HARRISON FORD S TOP CHOICE TO REPLACE HIM AS INDIANA JONES IS NOBODY (Photo by Paramount Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)Director Steven Spielberg is currently filming his remake of West Side Story (12/18/2020), but he s still attached to direct the fifth Indiana Jones movie, which remains scheduled for July 9, 2021. That also happens to be four days before Harrison Ford s birthday, July 13, 2021, when he will turn 79. So it s extremely likely that Ford will not be returning for an Indiana Jones 6. Probably with that in mind, Ford was asked this week who he thinks should be cast as the next Indiana Jones, to which he replied, Nobody! Don’t you get it? I’m Indiana Jones. When I m gone, he s gone. It s easy. Chris Pratt (Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy) has been mentioned in the past as a possible replacement, but Ford appeared to confuse his Chris P. movie stars, saying, This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine this. I m sorry, man. (Unless of course, Chris Pine from Star Trek has also been in talks for the role. Not impossible.)5. MGM KNOWS HOW TO SELL A CONTRADICTION: BOY GEORGE BIOPIC IN THE WORKS (Photo by Lee/Everett Collection)Following the phenomenal box office numbers of nearly a billion dollars (3 million globally) for last year s Bohemian Rhapsody, there is obviously a strong argument to be made that there is an audience thirsty for musical biopics driven by the right songs, the right personalities, and the right stories. Elton John is testing that theory this weekend as the executive producer of Rocketman (Certified Fresh at 90%), which tells John s own life story. Something else that Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman also have in common, besides just being musical biopics, is their subjects sexuality. MGM is now developing a musical biopic about the life of British singer Boy George of the 1980s pop group Culture Club, whose hits included Karma Chameleon, I ll Tumble 4 Ya, and Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? MGM s Boy George biopic will be written and directed by Sacha Gervasi, wh
