Like The Big Sick, Stuber stars Kumail Nanjiani as a mild-mannered Uber driver named Stu, of course who is roped into a frequently violent wild goose chase across Los Angeles in search of a murderous drug dealer. The large, imposing man responsible for said roping is LAPD detective Vic Manning (played by Dave Bautista), who requires Stu s services because he s recovering from a Lasik operation. Will the two of them learn to put aside their differences and work together in harmony? Will they help each other confront some hard truths about themselves? Will cars be chased and heads be busted? The answer to all of those questions is likely to be yes, and critics say it s a little disappointing that Stuber doesn t do more with its talented cast, which also includes Karen Gillan, Mira Sorvino, and Betty Gilpin. There s also quite a bit of violence and a some tonal inconsistencies, but if you don t mind that, there may some fun to be had here.
ess hiding in a convent in another direction. Insecure s Regina Hicks and Star s Karin Gist are developing the feature for Disney.Additionally, the service will mine the 20th Century Fox library. During the August 6 earnings call, Iger revealed plans to develop new versions of Home Alone, Night At the Museum, Cheaper By the Dozen, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It is unclear if they will be a television series or feature-length Disney+ original films, but Iger said each property will be re-imagined for a new generation. And thanks to Disney acquisition of the Fox assets, it will also offer 600 hours of National Geographic content at launch.See The Launch List below for the full roster of film and show titles.Disney+ Will Also Offer Totally New Original Films and SeriesWhile it makes sense for Disney to lean heavily on its proven stable of intellectual property, Disney+ has acquired a number of films and put several series in development based on concepts new to the corporation, like Diary of a Female President. Created by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend veteran Ilana Peña, it will center on a 12-year-old Cuban-American girl on a mission to become the president of the United States. Of course, she has to survive middle school first. The series already has a 10-episode commitment.Recent Toy Story 4 breakout star Forky (Tony Hale) will star in his own short-form series, Forky Asks a Question, in which he will explore important questions about how the world works, such as “What is love?” and “What is time?”The service is also said to be developing a comedy series called Four Dads about a gay couple who divorce, marry other people, and find they still need to spend time together as they raise their pre-teen daughters.The film slate includes Noelle, in which Anna Kendrick plays Santa Claus’s daughter Noelle. Bill Hader, Billy Eichner, and Shirley MacLaine also star. Originally set to be released theatrically next November, it joined the Disney+ roster last year.The often-delayed Magic Camp will also find a home on Disney+. Directed by Mark Waters, the film stars Adam DeVine as a magician who takes a job counseling at a magic-oriented youth camp in the hopes of reigniting his career.Stargirl – not to be confused with the upcoming DC Universe series of the same name – will also land on the platform. Based on the novel by Jerry Spinelli, it tells the tale of Stargirl Caraway (Grace VanderWaal), a homeschooled teen who shakes things up when she enrolls in an Arizona high school.At D23, Disney+ previewed two new features set to premiere exclusively on the service. Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, directed by Tom McCarthy, follows the exploits of a quirky, deadpan hero, Timmy Failure, who, along with his 1,500-pound polar bear partner Total, operates Total Failure Inc., a Portland detective agency. Togo, meanwhile, stars Willem DeFoe as a man who must journey through the Arctic with only his most spirited sled dog at his side.And, finally, Disney+ is developing a feature based on Polly Shulman’s YA series The Grimm Legacy, which follows a group of teenagers who work at a library specializing in arcane materials uniquely suited to characters from the Grimm fairy tales. Tolkien screenwriter David Gleeson will write the script.See The Launch List below for the full roster of film and show titles.The Starting LineupIn addition to The Simpsons and The Mandalorian, other specific content you can expect on launch day includes all of the Marvel Studios films except for Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, the two MCU Spider-Man films, and The Incredible Hulk. All but those latter three — which feature characters shared by other studios — are expected to make their way to the service within the first year. The Marvel’s Hero Project reality series will also debut during the service’s launch.All Pixar films, aside from the recently released Toy Story 4, will be available at launch, but expect Toy Story 4 to join its brethren by early 2020.Star Wars fans will be able to watch all of the live-action films except Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story. (Feel free to snark about those omissions in the comments below.) On the TV end of the galaxy, all of Star Wars Rebels and the extant seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be available in addition to Mandalorian.Outside of the company’s big IP farms, The World According to Jeff Goldblum and the Kristen Bell–produced Encore! will also on November 12.Disney film library content will be quite robust, with films like Tron, Lilo Stitch, 101 Dalmatians, the new version of The Lady and the Tramp, and the film that started it all, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, all available at launch. Television library highlights include the original DuckTales series and the first season of the current revamp, the aforementioned Simpsons, and Malcolm in the Middle, proving integration of Fox properties was always a priority for the service.As Iger put it, the launch day lineup will be significant in quality. See The Launch List below for the full roster of film and show titles.Disney s BAMTech Subsidiary Is Building the PlatformIn August 2017, Disney bought a controlling interest in BAMTech, LLC, a technology firm specializing in streaming service apps like HBO Now.According to Iger, the Disney+ platform will feature elegant navigation and ways to personalize content. Which, considering the way Netflix hides personalized watch lists these days, may be a bigger competitive feature than currently thought.In fact, that elegant navigation may be more of a selling point as streaming services tend to follow the Netflix model. If Disney can reinvent navigating to content — especially for the company s vast library — it could prove to be a compelling way to pull people away from their chief rival in the streaming sphere.While Disney+ will become the service for Star Wars and Marvel fans, it will also indicate the market s future as other corporations make moves to silo content on their own services and Netflix plans for a future in which most of its content is home-grown. But with its strong brand recognition and library – to say nothing of the price – it may quickly become the leader in streaming services.The Launch ListIt. Is. Time.

Stephen Chbosky s (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) Dear Evan Hansen, based on the 2016 Broadway musical of the same name, stars Ben Platt as the titular high school senior suffering from anxiety who s been tasked by his therapist to write encouraging letters to himself. When a troubled classmate named Connor (Colton Ryan) nabs one of those letters, then later commits suicide, Connor s parents believe Evan is the best friend they never knew their son had, and the misunderstanding quickly spirals out of Evan s control. Critics say that the central premise of the story, which was already problematic on stage, is even more egregiously toxic now, and instead of embracing its inherent darkness, Chbosky and Co. insist upon wringing inspirational platitudes from it, much to the film s detriment. The impressive cast also includes Kaitlyn Dever, Amy Adams, and Julianne Moore, and the musical numbers translate fairly well onto celluloid, but reviews say the whole enterprise feels a little tone deaf, which robs it of some of its power. It s still probably worth a watch for fans of the original, but be prepared for a different experience here.
Pixar’s newest critically acclaimed film, Soul, bears many of the studio’s hallmarks: it’s a high-concept metaphysical story about who we are as people with echoes of Inside Out… and, yes, it will make you bawl. But it might also be the animation giant’s most distinct and ambitious movie yet. From directors Pete Docter and Kemp Powers, Soul stars Jamie Foxx as jazz pianist Joe, who never quite broke out but hasn’t let go of his dreams, and who’s forced to take a look at his life when a near-death experience sends his soul into a different world – one full of other souls, many of them as lost as he is. It’s challenging stuff, but heartfelt and funny, with a killer soundtrack and a story that, for the first time in Pixar’s history, centers on Black characters and experiences. Ahead of the movie’s premiere on Disney+, Rotten Tomatoes editor Jacqueline Coley sat down with Foxx, co-stars Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Angela Bassett, and Questlove, plus Docter, Powers, and producer Dana Murray, to talk about crafting a unique entry into the Pixar canon, the moments in their lives they felt the spark Joe feels, and the roles that put them “in the zone.”Soul is available on Disney+ from December 25, 2020.

Head to the comments and tell us what you recommend to replace it.
(Photo by 20th Century Fox)In 1896, a 45-second clip featuring a segment from the book Trilby and Little Billee was produced and started a 123-year old trend of literary works being adapted into films or television shows (and being adapted again and again). With films Little Women (2019), West Side Story (2020, pictured above), Wendy (2020), Emma (2020), and television movie A Christmas Carol (2019) and limited series War of the Worlds (2020) on the horizon, we decided to take a deep dive into the Tomatometer to see which of the literary adaptations are the Freshest, and which are the Rottenest (it’s a word).We pulled the data on 32 books that have at least three feature-length movies (80-plus minutes) or television shows with Tomatometer scores (don’t ask about Gone Girl, it’s only been adapted once) and created a dataset of 145 movies. We chose to exclude comic-book adaptations and movies like Godzilla that have copious reboots — it’s nothing personal, we just wanted to stick with literary adaptations.Quick note: We also excluded short films such as the 16-minute, black-and-white Frankenstein (1910) that was technically the first adaptation of Mary Shelley’s book. Also, Nosferatu, which is basically Bram Stoker’s Dracula – but not. Also, there are many obscure or lost films that don’t have Tomatometer scores and weren’t feature-length, so they were excluded.1. HENRY V RULES OVER ALL ADAPTATIONS WITH A 90% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by Netflix)With Laurence Olivier, Kenneth Branagh, David Michôd, and Thea Sharrock directing the Henry V adaptations, it’s no wonder adaptations based on William Shakespeare’s Henry V have the highest Tomatometer average. The first two major adaptations released in 1946 and 1989 have perfect 100% Tomatometer scores, and the 2012 BBC adaptation starring Tom Hiddleston has a 95% Tomatometer score. The lowest-rated adaptation, with a Fresh 70% Tomatometer score, is The King, the Netflix released film starring Timothée Chalamet (who also stars in the latest Little Women adaptation). Henry V has only known Freshness, and that’s why it’s the Fresh king of adaptations.2. WITH A 43% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE, TARZAN ADAPTATIONS KEEP SWINGING ON ROTTEN VINES(Photo by Lionsgate)If it weren t for Tarzan the Ape Man (1932), Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984), and Tarzan (1999), the adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs 1912 story would be super-Rotten. The three most recent attempts at retelling the fabled legend — 2013 s Tarzan, 2014 s Tarzan, and 2016 s The Legend of Tarzan — have a 24% Tomatometer average. On a random note, we know George of the Jungle isn’t Tarzan–related; however, Brendan Fraser is the best, and we think you should watch it again.3. THE FIRST ADAPTATION OF LITERARY WORKS HAVE THE BEST TOMATOMETER AVERAGE — WITH AN EXCELLENT 86% AVERAGE(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)The 86% Tomatometer average for the 32 first adaptations of various literary stories proves it’s good to be first. Only four of these adaptations have Rotten scores — and their average is an almost respectable 50%. The Tomatometer average for the adaptations that follow the firsts falls to a still Fresh 61% (which isn’t bad). While there are superb follow-up adaptations, such as the Jon Favreau–directed The Jungle Book and Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, there is a drop-off in quality that almost always happens with remakes or sequels, so it’s no shame that the Tomatometer average is lower. It just means there were more opportunities to water down the material (Hello Beastly or A Cinderella Story) or make something that pales in comparison to its predecessors.4. TELEVISED ADAPTATIONS (74%) HAVE A HIGHER TOMATOMETER AVERAGE THAN THEATRICALLY RELEASED ADAPTATIONS (67%)(Photo by BBC One)The 14 literary adaptations in our data set that were released on television or streaming services have a 74% Tomatometer average; whereas movie adaptations have a 67% Tomatometer score. The Fresh 74% average comes from a stacked lineup of adaptations such as 87% Tomatometer-rated War and Peace (2016) starring Lily James and Paul Dano and the epic 88%-rated Pride and Prejudice (1995) miniseries that propelled Colin Firth to superstardom and made striding out of lakes popular. The lowest-rated televised adaptations are the 25% Tomatometer-rated Tarzan (the less said, the better), and the 51%-rated Beauty and the Beast, that was released in 2013 on the CW, and actually got better as it progressed through its four seasons.5. WHAT ARE THE HIGHEST TOMATOMETER-RATED ADAPTATIONS?(Photo by Continental Distributing)Thirteen films and television shows in our data set have 100% scores, which is impressive considering how exclusive the 100% club is. The movies and shows are The Three Musketeers (1921), Frankenstein (1931), Tarzan the Ape Man (1932), Anna Karenina (1935), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939), Pride and Prejudice (1940), Henry V (1946), Oliver Twist (1951), War and Peace (1968), Mickey’s Christmas Carol (1983), Henry V (1989), and Hamlet (2009). There hasn’t been a 100% Tomatometer-rated adaptation in our data set since 2009 (and the last film with the score, Hamlet, has just six reviews). Let’s hope War of the Worlds or A Christmas Carol can join the club.6. WHAT ARE THE LOWEST TOMATOMETER-RATED ADAPTATIONS?(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)When it comes to the lowest-rated literary adaptations in our data set, we noticed a trend. Movies that either place the story in modern times or add a new wrinkle often get the lowest scores: 2006 s Material Girls (loosely based on Jane Austen s Sense and Sensibility) with a 4% score, 2014 s I, Frankenstein at 5%, 2011 s Beastly with 20%, 2011 s Age of the Dragons at 9%, 2018 s Little Women at 27%, 2001 s The Musketeer at 11%, and 2004 s A Cinderella Story at 12%. The tendency to modernize a classic story often results in Tomatometer scores below 30%. Age of the Dragons is Moby Dick, but with dragons. Using modern fight choreography, The Musketeer claimed it was “As you’ve never seen it before” and received an 11% Tomatometer score. Sometimes the approach works – Clueless (79%), Scrooged (70%), or 10 Things I Hate About You (68%) – and sometimes, well, it does not, which brings us to 7. ADAPTATIONS THAT DRASTICALLY CHANGE THE SOURCE MATERIAL HAVE A 44% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by United Artists Films)When compared to the 74% Tomatometer average for the adaptations that stick closely to their source material, the 44% looks really bad; however, a number of movies and television shows that modernized their stories or added zombies into the mix have done pretty well. Movies like Ethan Hawke’s Hamlet from 2000 with an almost-Fresh 57%, 1961 s West Side Story at a Certified Fresh 93%, and Baz Luhrman’s Romeo + Juliet from 1996 with 72% successfully modernized the source material and gave the world some really cool visuals. If you haven’t watched the 45% Tomatometer-rated Pride and Prejudice and Zombies yet, just know that it features Lily James, Matt Smith, Lena Heady, Charles Dance, Sam Riley, Suki Waterhouse, and Bella Heathcote battling zombies. It’s weird, and sorta charming.8. THE LITTLE WOMEN ADAPTATIONS HAVE A 77% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by Sony Pictures)Any other upcoming literary adaptations will have a hard time competing with Greta Gerwig’s wonderful take on Little Women. It s earning rave reviews (currently 97% on the Tomatometer with 67 reviews), and looks like it may stand right alongside the 1933 (94%) and 1994 (92%) films and the 2017 television adaptation (84%) as wonderful Little Women adaptations that have big Tomatometer scores. If it weren’t for the 2018 Little Women, which is a modern retelling of the story that has a 27% Tomatometer average, the Little Women set would be competing for the top spot among all the adaptations.9. KENNETH BRANAGH IS THE KING OF LITERARY ADAPTATIONS(Photo by Picturehouse)If you’re looking for someone to direct your literary adaptation you would be wise to consider Kenneth Branagh first. Why? His adaptations for Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, In the Bleak Midwinter (A Midwinter’s Tale), Hamlet, As You Like It, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Cinderella, and Murder on the Orient Express have an average 70.5% Tomatometer score, with Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, and Cinderella having Tomatometer scores of 85% or higher.10. ANIMATED LITERARY ADAPTATIONS HAVE A 70% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by Walt Disney Feature Animation)In the decades-long Tomatometer battle between live-action and animated literary adaptations, the animated adaptations have a slight 4% lead (70% 66%). The averages are close, but the animated films, led by Cinderella (1950), Alice in Wonderland (1951), The Jungle Book (1967), Mickey’s Christmas Carol (1983), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and Tarzan (1999) put animated films in the top spot.What are your favorite literary adaptations?

(Click to enlarge.)After six intense rounds of voting, we can officially crown Loki as the Ultimate Marvel Villain! The Trickster God who attempted to take over Earth, faked his own death to return to Asgard and rule under false pretenses, and came this close to betraying Thor on Sakaar has won the hearts of fans everywhere with that wink-and-a-smile charisma and not one but two separate redemptive arcs.Were we surprised? A little, yes. Thanos is, after all, the Big Bad of the Infinity Saga, and considering what happened between him an Loki in Avengers: Infinity War, well Let s just say we leave it up to each individual voter to determine how to make their picks in these showdowns, but if it were a true contest of power, we all saw how the championship round here actually went down. At the very least, the final tally was a close one, with Loki taking the victory by a margin of just 52% to 48% of the vote.Thanks once again to everyone who participated in this showdown, whether you took it very seriously or had a bit of fun with it. We welcome fans of all stripes here, and that s what makes these fun in the first place. With that, we ll see you all at the next big showdown!Round 1 Results | Round 2 Results | Round 3 Results | Round 4 Results | Round 5 ResultsFinal RoundRound 1 Results | Round 2 Results | Round 3 Results | Round 4 Results | Round 5 ResultsOn an Apple device?

"Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong" About... Home Alone 2: Lost In New York Was moving the action to Manhattan and upping the "ow"-factor enough to justify a second Home Alone movie? We're tossing bricks and taking names in the latest ep of our podcast. by RT Staff | December 10, 2020 | Comments
Of course, any happiness they do find is going to come sprinkled between a lot more suffering and loss, and that continues in the premiere. The Alexandrians are not only forced to rebuild much of the community after that destructive showdown with the Whisperers, but they’re frighteningly low on food supplies, with more mouths to feed.Some, like Aaron (Ross Marquand), think they need to push through and get the crucial repairs to the walls completed, while others think they need to go on a massive food hunt so they can provide sustenance for that hard physical labor. Maggie (Lauren Cohan) even knows the exact place they can find all the food they’ll need for the near future, but, like with anything in their world, it’s going to require a dangerous mission to retrieve it.Which brings up the question of how, after all they’ve been through, all the tragic losses, all the times they’ve had to start over and rebuild, how do Maggie and company find the gumption, the physical, mental, and emotional energy to keep going after all these years?(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)“I think for our people, they have just been struggling and struggling to survive, [but] they remember that there have been times that are good,” Kang said. “So they re reaching for that. I think all of those folks who are parents, all the characters that just, regardless of whether they have people who are related by blood, they are all bonded together as friends and as people who ve traveled a long, hard road together. And I think even for characters that don t feel the gumption in themselves, I do think a lot of them feel the drive to help those that they love. And that s, in some ways, what s keeping them growing during a time when it feels like so much hope is lost.“After everything they ve been through, to have it fall apart after this long, it is really quite crushing for many of the characters. But I think a lot of them find themselves asking the question, ‘Can we actually rebuild from this when it s just worse? We ve been brought so low.’ So that s just one of the things that they re all grappling with as the season goes on,” she said.(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)Maggie, in particular has a lot, and then some, on her plate. When she tells her friends about this source of food she can take them to, it requires finally sharing with them her most recent trauma, and, without spoiling specifics, let’s just say that particular trauma may not be in her past.And speaking of bad things not in her rearview mirror, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is very much still on Maggie’s mind, since she’s now living in the same community with the man who brutally murdered her husband right in front of her. Negan’s redemption was easier to buy since Maggie was out the picture, but as much as his friendship with Judith (Cailey Fleming) has helped us see him in a different light, seeing him through Maggie’s eyes, reminded of what he took from her and little Hershel Rhee (Kien Michael Spiller), has made it easy to understand why all she wants to do avenge Glenn’s death every time Negan enters her path.And, again, no spoilers, but when they’re thrown together in the premiere, there are murderous thoughts all around. She wants him dead. He knows it (not like she’s trying to hide it). He knows the only way he’s going to survive is to change her mind about him, or make sure she dies first. Bottom line, it’s tough to see how both of them are still standing by series’ end.(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)Which brings us to the goals for this final season of the original series — the spin-offs, including the upcoming Kang-led sequel featuring Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride), will go on. What do the writers hope to wrap up? Where do they hope to leave the group in general?“The thing that s interesting is, when we started work on the season, we didn t know that we were starting work on what was going to wind up being the last season of the show,” Kang said of the supersized season, which will consist of 24 episodes, released in batches of eight each, through 2022.“But hopefully whenever we re writing, we re always writing with the viewpoint in mind of like, ‘We have to tell a story that feels really, really cool. We hope it leaves people wanting more,’ she said.“As we get further into the season, there are definitely places that we want to land people at the end of the series. But plotting that out is not even entirely different from what we try to do every year, which is think about, ‘Where are our characters at? Where do we want to leave them when we end the season?’ It s just that, obviously, it takes on a different level of importance, so we really spent a lot of time talking about each person and what their journey might be,” she said.(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)And how did Kang and the other writers and producers think about the season, and how it would end, in terms of Walking Dead fan expectations?“I find that our fandom, it stretches across different people with different taste, so depending on the person you ask, I really think you re going to get a very different answer,” said Kang, who’s worked on TWD since she was hired as a story editor in season 2. “I think the core of what holds the fans together is that they care about the characters and want to feel that they re watching a story about them that allows them to understand more about what they re thinking and what they re working through and how hard they re fighting to survive. And I think obviously they do like that there s a sense of adventure stakes, like the scares, and, yet, feeling like people can overcome when they need to by standing together.“Those of us that work on the show, all of us love the show, we love the comics, we love the genre. So I think we lean toward our internal sense as fans ourselves of what s entertaining for us and what we find moving or scary. Hopefully, those feelings are aligned with the audience, but we don t always know, and we can t always control that. We hope that people have a good time and get something out of it, even if certain fans go, ‘You know what? I didn t really resonate with that particular episode, but then the next one I really love.’ And a lot of that is us realizing we re writing for a variety of people. Even within our own writer s room, there are certain stories or certain characters that people are really drawn to, or they go like, ‘Ah, that s OK for me, but I really, really like this other thing.’”(Photo by Josh Stringer/AMC)The first two episodes of the season, “Acheron: Part I and II,” feel like one feature-length story, and should include something for every fan’s taste, from an opening reminiscent of a certain iconic Tom Cruise movie scene and all the Maggie/Negan drama to a sweet reunion (Daryl hugs!) and that aforementioned ending for episode two.“We definitely have a sense of ongoing story that also carries through some of this,” Kang said. “But as with every season we do, the show kind of reinvents itself every so many episodes. So we have some arcs that are more contained. And then within that, we sometimes have episodes that feel almost like their own little movie, and then we have some stories that are running (across) many episodes. So it s a mix of all of that, over 24 episodes.”The Walking Dead season 11 premiere is now streaming on AMC+ and airs at 9/8C on Sunday, August 22 on AMC.
Making the long weekend of video panels feel a little bit more like the real-deal SDCC, Comic-Con@Home actually starts Wednesday – the traditional preview day at the physical event – with a single hour of content: a look at the upcoming film, Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins. Featuring interviews with stars Henry Golding, Andrew Koji, Úrsula Corberó, Samara Weaving, Haruka Abe, Iko Uwais, Peter Mensah, Takehiro Hira, and legendary G.I. Joe comic books Larry Hama, there will also be a chance for some viewers to get access to early screenings of the movie later that night. The panel goes live July 21 at 1 p.m. PT.Thursday July 22(Photo by Eli Joshua Ade/HBO)In a departure from an in-person SDCC and even last year’s @Home event, Thursday programing starts late with panels premiering only from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. PT. The bulk of them are devoted to the more educational and advocacy aspects of Comic-Con International’s mission, but one caught our attention.Debuting at 6 p.m., “GeekED Rewind 20-21: The True American Horror of Lovecraft Country” will take a look back at the series with an emphasis on how the series changed college learning across the year when education occurred at home. Panelists Jada Anderson (assistant resident director at UCLA), Alfred Day (associate dean of students at UC Berkeley), Dr. Andrea Letamendi (director of student resilience at UCLA and host of The Arkham Sessions Podcast), and Dr. David Surratt (vice president and dean of students at the University of Oklahoma) will look at how “numerous courses, lesson plans, and campus conversations emerged from Lovecraft Country, which served as both an analogy and an outlet for college students and educators alike.” They will also reflect on “the impact this story had on their experiences, the impact of Black horror and sci-fi, and the power of telling our own story.”Friday July 23Friday sets the new Comic-Con@Home standard with panels debuting between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. PT. The long day also means more simultaneous content to enjoy, so pay particular attention to the times. Of course, as panels will remain available on CCI’s YouTube page afterward, you can always watch later on. All times bellow are Pacific.10 AM: HeelsIt might be virtual, but Stephen Amell makes his return to Comic-Con in support of Heels, his series about small-town pro wrestling. Joining him in the virtual conventions space will be series creator and executive producer Michael Waldron, showrunner and executive producer Mike O’Malley, and fellow castmates Alexander Ludwig Alison Luff, Mary McCormack, Kelli Berglund, Allen Maldonado, James Harrison and, Chris Bauer.10 AM: Paramount+: Peak Animation with the Star Trek Universe, The Harper House, and Stephen Colbert Presents Tooning Out The NewsWe’ll be honest, while the hour will present an overview of all the Paramount+ animated programs, the chief draw here is the Star Trek content. Jerry O’Connell will moderate Q As with the cast of Star Trek: Lower Decks and the upcoming Star Trek: Prodigy, featuring Kate Mulgrew, Brett Gray, Ella Purnell, Angus Imrie, Rylee Alazraqui, Dee Bradley Baker, and Jason Mantzoukas, executive producers Kevin Hageman and Dan Hageman, and director/co-executive producer Ben Hibon. Clips and trailers for all the shows presented are expected.11 AM: Amazon Panel(Photo by Amazon Studios)Amazon Prime Video and IMDb TV promise “something extraordinary for every Comic-Con@Home attendee” as Tim Kash spends some time with The Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time’s Hideaki Anno, S.O.Z’s Nico Entel, I Know What You Did Last Summer’s Sara Goodman, and Leverage: Redemption stars and directors Beth Riesgraf and Noah Wyle. We’ll be honest, we’re mainly interested in The Wheel of Time. Hopefully, a trailer for the series will emerge during the discussion with Judkins.12 PM: Netflix Geeked: Masters of the Universe: Revelation (see Highlights above)2 PM: Motherland: Fort Salem A Look Into Season Two(Photo by Freeform/Jeff Petry)Motherland: Fort Salem creator Eliot Laurence and castmembers Taylor Hickson, Ashley Nicole Williams, Jessica Sutton, Demetria McKinney, Amalia Holm, and Lyne Renee gather to preview the program’s second season.2 PM: Teenage EuthanasiaAdult Swim’s new coming-of-all-ages comedy series claims it focuses on “death, family, and accidental resurrection.” That’s enough to at least get us to take a look at the panel, which will feature creators Alyson Levy and Alissa Nutting, Scott Adsit, who serves as a co-director and co-executive producer, and voice actors Maria Bamford, Jo Firestone, Bebe Neuwirth.3 PM: DuncanvilleExecutive producers Mike Scully and Julie Thacker-Scully, executive producer and star Amy Poehler, and stars Ty Burrell, Riki Lindhome, Joy Osmanski, Yassir Lester, and Betsy Sodaro gather to tease the rest of the season of Duncanville.4 PM: Rick and Morty(Photo by Adult Swim)Co-creator and executive producer Dan Harmon looks back on season 5 of Rick and Morty with showrunner Scott Marder and actors Chris Parnell, Sarah Chalke, Spencer Grammer, and other special guests.4 PM: Todd McFarlane Takes Over the Universe!While mainly a look at McFarlane’s varied endeavors in publishing and toys, we expect there will be at least some mention of the upcoming Sam and Twitch television series.Read more: Spawn Movie Is Still On and Sam and Twitch Will Become Series, Comic Creator Todd McFarlane Reveals5 PM: Blade Runner: Black Lotus(Photo by Adult Swim)Co-directors Shinji Aramaki and Kenji Kamiyama, executive producer Joseph Chou, voice director Wes Gleason and star Jessica Henwick gather to discuss the first Blade Runner animated series, coming to Adult Swim and Crunchyroll later this year. Honestly, we’re quite intrigued by the prospect of Blade Runner continuing in any form and this presentation will be Black Lotus s chance to truly sell us on the premise.6 PM: Flesh BloodShowrunner Ian Carpenter and creator Aaron Martin join cast members David Cronenberg, Rachael Crawford, and Paula Brancati to discuss the upcoming anthology series and share a first look trailer. Cronenberg’s decision to spend more time acting of late is intriguing. And we imagine that it will be the draw to this panel for some of you as well.Saturday July 2411 AM: Simpsons Season 33 and BeyondLisa Simpson voice Yeardley Smith will guide the production team in a special look at the upcoming thirty-third(!) season of the longest-running primetime animated series in history. You have to respect The Simpsons’ longevity even if you haven’t watched it in a while.11 AM: Ultra City SmithsBased on the description of the series alone — a stop-motion program using repurposed baby dolls to tell the story of fictional magnate’s mysterious disappearance — we’re inclined to give the Ultra City Smiths panel a look. Series creator, writer, co-director and showrunner Steve Conrad and co-director David Brooks will be joined by cast members Jimmi Simpson, Debra Winger, Luis Guzmán, Hana Mae Lee, Tim Heidecker, and Chris Conrad to offer some insight into the unusual AMC+ program.12 PM: Robert Kirkman @ Home(Photo by Amazon Studios)Like Friday’s McFarlane panel, we expect Kirkman will talk about his various projects in comic books, merchandise, film, and television. Hopefully, he’ll have some update on Invincible’s second season. Although we imagine for some Walking Dead fans, this will be the beginning of a whole afternoon of Walking Dead panels.1 PM: Fear The Walking DeadThe Walking Dead Universe boss Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, and Fear the Walking Dead cast members Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Jenna Elfman, Karen David, Mo Collins, and Christine Evangelista gather to tease the upcoming season. Since this is a Walking Dead series, we expect those teases to be oddly vague – at least until the sizzle reel plays.1 PM: HBO Max and Warner Bros. Animation: Jellystone!HBO Max is reviving the Hanna-Barbara wacky animal characters for a new generation, and we’re intrigued for one reason only: Jabberjaw is part of the group this time. The Jellystone! panel will feature showrunner and executive producer C.H. Greenblatt, Ian Wasseluk, Yogi Bear voice Jeff Bergman, Grace Helbig, and Niccole Thurman (the new voice of Jabberjaw) as they preview this new take on Yogi s Jellystone.2 PM: The Walking Dead World Beyond A first-look clip from the second and final season of World Beyond will be part of the proceedings as cast and producers assemble to discuss the challenges in making the first Walking Dead limited series.3 PM: The Walking Dead (see Highlights above)3 PM: Netflix Geeked: The Last MercenaryJean-Claude Van Damme and director David Charhon are your pitchmen for upcoming Netflix action film The Last Mercenary. And as it is one of the few features at a Comic-Con more devoted to comics and television, we have to take a look.3 PM: Roswell, New Mexico Cast Conversation and Sneak PeekRoswell, New Mexico stars Jeanine Mason, Nathan Dean, Michael Vlamis, Lily Cowles, Tyler Blackburn, Heather Hemmens, Michael Trevino, and executive producer Christopher Hollier will gather for an at-home Q A while they also preview upcoming events on the series.4 PM Family GuyCelebrate 20(!) years of Family Guy with Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Mila Kunis, Seth Green, Arif Zahir, and executive producers Rich Appel and Alec Sulkin. The group will face a trivia contest which will no doubt reveal how little they remember about the last 20 years.4 PM: Horror NoireWriters Tananarive Due, Steven Barnes, Shernold Edwards, and Victor LaValle will preview the upcoming Shudder original anthology series, a showcase of Black horror from Black directors and screenwriters.5 PM: Netflix Geeked: Lucifer (see Hightlights above)6 PM: gen:LOCK Season 2Michael B. Jordan, Dakota Fanning, and showrunner/lead writer Daniel Dominguez take a look at the new gen:LOCK season and present a clip of the first episode.6 PM: Stargate Atlantis ReunionCast members David Hewlett, Torri Higginson, Rachel Luttrell, Paul McGillion, Rainbow Sun Francks, David Nykl, and Robert Picardo take look back on the second Stargate television series, which ended its run 11 years ago. Considering how Comic-Con usually features a number of nostalgic reunions like these, it is remarkable that Stargate Atlantis is the only show producing one this year.Sunday July 2510 AM: HousebrokenVoice actors Lisa Kudrow, Nat Faxon, Will Forte, Tony Hale, Sharon Horgan, Jason Mantzoukas, Sam Richardson gather alongside Housebroken co-creator, executive producer, and voice actor Clea DuVall — and co-creators, executive producers, and showrunners Gabrielle Allan and Jen Crittenden — for a Q A centered on their upcoming series about a therapy group composed of “neighborhood pets and stray animals.”10 AM: Doctor Who (see Highlights above)11 AM: Day of the Dead: Adapting a LegendShowrunners Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, director Steven Kostanski, and cast members Keenan Tracey and Natalie Malaika discuss the difficulties in adapting George A. Romero s beloved zombie film into a SYFY original series.11 AM: The Mysterious Benedict SocietyTake an hour with the cast and creators of Disney+’s The Mysterious Benedict Society as stars Tony Hale, Kristen Schaal, MaameYaa Baofo, Ryan Hurst, and Gia Sandhu — and executive producers and writers Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi, Darren Swimmer, and Todd Slavkin — discuss what’s transpired so far and tease some of what’s to come. Our memory of last year’s @Home content is a little fuzzy, but we’re pretty sure this is the first Disney+ panel at Comic-Con, which is sort of historic in some small way.12 PM: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Cast Conversation and Sneak PeekCaity Lotz, Tala Ashe, Jes Macallan, Olivia Swann, Adam Tsekhman, Shayan Sobhian, Lisseth Chavez, Nick Zano, Matt Ryan, and executive producers Phil Klemmer and Keto Shimizu, get on Zoom to discuss the hijinks the season has offered so far and to tease what’s yet to come. Even if producing the show in the middle of a pandemic has made its weaknesses more apparent, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is still a fun one to watch — due in no small part to this great cast.1 PM: DexterLike so many other revivals before it, Dexter is returning later this fall. But what could ever call Dexter Morgan back from his life as a lumberjack? Star (and executive producer) Michael C. Hall will offer some clarity on the matter with help from showrunner and executive producer Clyde Phillips, executive producer Scott Reynolds, director Marcos Siega, and new cast member Julia Jones. The group will also present a trailer which may also shed light on Dexter s return to duty. Well, provided you can call what he does duty. 1 PM: Meet the Creators and Cast of Netflix s NorsemenNorsemen stars Kåre Conradi, Trond Fausa, Nils Jørgen Kaalstad, Øystein Martinsen, Marian Ottesen, and series producers Jonas Torgersen and Jon Iver Helgaker take part in a Q A one hopes will shed some light on its final season.2 PM: Netflix Geeked: Army of ThievesNetflix continues to build on the world of Zack Snyder s Army of the Dead with the prequel film Army of Thieves. Snyder, along with fellow producers Deborah Snyder, Wesley Coller, director and star Matthias Schweighöfer, and star Nathalie Emmanuel take a look at the upcoming film, which reveals the hiest which put Dieter on the road to Las Vegas.2 PM: The Legacy of ChuckyChild s Play creator Don Mancini, Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, and Christine Elise take a look back at 30 years of Chucky rampages and take a look at the upcoming Chucky television series. There s definitely some fun to be had here as both Dourifs are fun interviews. Also, if the panel maintains some of the energy of a Child s Play or Chucky movie, it could be the best of Sunday.3 PM: Bob’s BurgersAs is tradition, the Bob’s Burgers cast and producers will present an hour of info on the new season, show some rare material, and answer fan questions. Sure, it all needs to be done over Zoom, but that awkwardness is part of the fun, right? Creator and executive producer Loren Bouchard, executive producer Nora Smith, H. Jon Benjamin, and voice actors John Roberts, Kristen Schaal, Eugene Mirman, Dan Mintz, and Larry Murphy take part in the festivities.4 PM: A Conversation with the Cast Executive Producers of EPIX’s ChapelwaiteStars Adrien Brody and Emily Hampshire take a look at their upcoming adaptation of Stephen King s short story Jerusalem’s Lot. What mysteries will Brody s character, Captain Boone, uncover when he relocates his family to Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea? Perhaps this preview of the series will convince us Chapelwaite is a project to keep an eye on.Watching Comic-Con@HomeThe video presentations are available via the Convention schedule page or CCI s YouTube Channel.

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?

The story of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo, and their sensei Splinter was a hit back in 1990, as audiences were drawn to the movie s relatively gritty and realistic ninjitsu-practicing half-shelled heroes, in line with the Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird comic book. One year after, at the height of Turtle mania, came sequel Secret of the Ooze, which replaced April O Neil with a new actress, brought back Shredder, and went to great lengths to tone down the weapon-based violence. One more sequel in 1993 sent the Turtles back in time, a box office under-performer that closed the book on the original movie trilogy.But the franchise stuck around, through video games, comics, action figures, and numerous television series. Seems like there s always a market for brash, active reptiles for young people to latch onto. This has led to film revivals throughout the years, including an animated film in 2007, and a Michael Bay-produced reboot in 2014. As the franchise celebrates over 35 years of unlikely and phenomenal success, we re ranking all the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies by Tomatometer!
iro is in top form… he hasn’t been this good in years, and his rather understated performance really carries the movie. Brett Arnold, Consequence of SoundFrank Sheeran gives [De Niro] his most satisfying lead role in years. Eric Kohn, IndieWireDe Niro’s superb performance is a close cousin to his work in GoodFellas. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyWhat a joy it is to have Pesci back on the screen and to see him deliver such soulful work in the process…. the film really belongs to Pesci. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmJoe Pesci emerges from retirement to give a superbly measured performance… the polar opposite of the lit-fuse firecrackers Pesci famously portrayed for Scorsese. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterAnd when they re together?De Niro and Pacino play off one another beautifully, with De Niro often playing the calm straight-man to Pacino’s loudmouth comedian. A warmth radiates between the two. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmWhen [Pesci] and De Niro are onscreen together, you believe in the power of art. A.O. Scott, New York Times(Photo by Netflix)What about Al Pacino?Pacino arrives almost a third of the way into the film and instantly electrifies it. Caryn James, BBC.comPacino shines among an incredible cast. [It s] his best display of rampant emotion and thoughtful characterization since Heat. He is Hoffa. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviewsMore than just a believably magnetic Hoffa, Pacino kicks the film into the realm of pure, delicious crazy. Joshua Rothkopf, Time OutPacino’s over-the-top presence borders on parody, but at the same time, feels attuned to the larger-than-life shadow that Hoffa cast in his prime. Eric Kohn, IndieWireHow distracting is the de-aging effect?Is the de-aging process perfect? Of course not… the process is still amazing, and there’s a strange, singular way that it works for the movie. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyThe de-aging is pretty good. I’d say the best I’ve seen so far… you do get used to it. Mike Ryan, UproxxThe eyes adjust to the illusion. Moreover, this magic trick speaks to the unreliable unreality of memory itself… a problem with (potentially accidental) resonance. A.A. Dowd, AV ClubAfter a while, you adjust, or rather, you get tired of probing the slightly-off evidence of your eyes and the headache it produces. There’s a lot of fun to distract you. Joshua Rothkopf, Time OutNow and then I had to stave off a PTSD flashback to Robert Zemeckis’ Polar Express. Stephanie Zacharek, Time Magazine(Photo by Netflix)What about the runtime?The film, which clocks in at 209 minutes — even longer than The Return of the King and Avengers: Endgame — barely feels its length. Karen Han, PolygonThis is a remarkably brisk three-and-a-half hours — Scorsese, at a ripe 76, still directs with the energy of a hungry young filmmaker. A.A. Dowd, AV ClubThe material would have been better served by losing an hour or more to run at standard feature length, or bulking up on supporting-character and plot detail to flesh out a series. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterI’m not sure The Irishman needed all 209 minutes… even when the characters are younger, [it] moves at a leisurely (or even elderly) pace. Matt Singer, ScreenCrushHow s the pacing?Its last half-hour is deeply moving in a way that creeps up on you, and it’s then that you see what Scorsese was working toward all along. Stephanie Zacharek, Time MagazineThe Irishman doesn’t fully engage until its second act. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviews[Steve] Zaillian’s messy script, an ambitious assemblage of timelines, takes its time to fully immerse the viewer into its world… the second half is more lively. Jordan Ruimy, World of ReelIt’s a film that only gets further under your skin after you leave the theater (or close your Netflix browser, as the case may be). Karen Han, Polygon(Photo by Netflix)Does it need to be seen in a theater?The film, by design, is episodic in a way that’s small-screen-friendly. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyThe movie s self-indulgent running time of three-and-a-half hours will pose challenges for home-screen viewing. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterIt should go without saying but yes, if you can, definitely see a new Martin Scorsese movie on the big screen first. Frazier Tharpe, ComplexWhat about the film s female characters?If one fault could be found with Scorsese’s latest work, it’s the waste of intriguing women characters. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviewsFor much of The Irishman, the women are at the margins — wives and daughters, always around, rarely saying anything. This isn’t atypical in Scorsese’s work, which rarely centers on women. Alissa Wilkinson, VoxThe movie lacks a strong female voice but such limitations speak to Sheeran’s character flaws more than those of The Irishman. Eric Kohn, IndieWireIt s a shoo-in for the Oscars, though, isn t it?In terms of the Oscar race, The Irishman is what we thought it was, a likely Best Picture contender with a chance at a truckload of nominations. Gregory Ellwood, The PlaylistIf the Best Supporting Actor Oscar came down to Pacino and Pesci, I have no idea who I’d support. Both performances are transcendently good. Brett Arnold, Consequence of SoundThe Irishman opens in limited release on November 1 and releases on Netflix on November 27.
亚博网址 This week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering movies based on true stories like Boston Strangler, I Wanna Dance with Somebody, Oppenheimer, and The Woman King.This WEEK S TOP STORYCILLIAN MURPHY CONFIRMED AS CHRISTOPHER NOLAN S OPPENHEIMER (Photo by Everett Collection)Throughout Hollywood s long history of making movies about real life figures, it s a lingering complaint that actors frequently do not look like the real life figures that they are portraying. For Oppenheimer, about the life of the father of the atomic bomb, J. Robert Oppenheimer, director Christopher Nolan appears to be sidestepping such criticisms by casting frequent collaborator Cillian Murphy, who played his Scarecrow in Batman Begins, as the titular scientist, and the resemblance is sort of uncanny. Universal Pictures has scheduled Oppenheimer for release on July 21, 2023, which puts it around the same late July slot when many of Christopher Nolan s films have been released (Interstellar was on 7/21/2017, and The Dark Knight Rises was on 7/20/2012). Oppenheimer will start filming in early 2022 on IMAX cameras and with a budget of over 0 million. In related news, the Peaky Blinders movie, also starring Cillian Murphy, was confirmed this week to start filming in 18 months (in 2023), after the show s sixth and final season wraps.Other Top Headlines1. KEIRA KNIGHTLEY TO STAR IN SERIAL KILLER TRUE STORY BOSTON STRANGLER(Photo by Barry Wetcher/©Warner Bros.)Although several others have possibly eclipsed his notoriety, the argument can be made that the early 1960s murders ascribed to The Boston Strangler left an indelible mark on the 1960s, including the 1968 film The Boston Strangler (Fresh at 86%), starring Tony Curtis. Filmmaker Ridley Scott is set to produce a new film called Boston Strangler via his Scott Free Productions for 20th Century Studios, and Keira Knightley is the film s first announced star as Loretta McLaughlin, the first reporter to connect the murders and break the story of the Strangler. Writer/director Matt Ruskin (Crown Heights, Certified Fresh at 77%) will adapt the Boston Strangler screenplay and direct when filming starts on location in Boston in December, 2021. The role of Alberto DeSalvo, the Boston Strangler himself, has not yet been cast.2. WHITNEY HOUSTON BIOPIC CASTS THREE KEY REAL LIFE ROLES (Photo by ©A24)The Whitney Houston biopic I Wanna Dance with Somebody (12/23/2022) is now filming at locations in Boston and New Jersey, but until this week, several key roles in Houston s life remained unfilled (or at least, unannounced). Let s start with Robyn Crawford, Houston s longtime assistant, who will be played by Nafessa Williams (Thunder on TV s Black Lightining), after the role s first actress, Moses Ingram, recently parted ways with the role. From the same announcement, we also now know that Whitney s parents, John and Cissy Houston, will be played by Clarke Peters (Lester Freamon from HBO s The Wire) and Tamara Tunie (Dr. Melinda Warner from TV s Law Order: Special Victims Unit). That news all came out on Monday, and then yesterday, we learned that the role of Houston s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown will be played by 15-year-old Brian Danielle Singleton, who played the young Octavia Spencer in the superhero movie Thunder Force. Comedian Eddie Murphy will also be a character in I Wanna Dance with Somebody, and he will be played by Jimmie Fails, who co-starred in and co-wrote The Last Black Man in San Francisco (Certified Fresh at 92%). Those five actors join other already announced cast members Naomi Ackie (Whitney Houston), Ashton Sanders (Bobby Brown), and Stanley Tucci (Clive Davis).3. SAM RAIMI PRODUCING DYSTOPIAN THRILLER BOY KILLS WORLD (Photo by ©Universal courtesy Everett Collection)Filmmaker Sam Raimi is currently deep into post-production on his return to Marvel as the director of the sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (3/25/2022), but that isn t preventing him from occasionally producing other directors projects. Raimi s production company is just one of the partners on a new dystopian thriller called Boy Kills World, which will soon start filming on location in South Africa. Bill Skarsgard (Pennywise in IT) will play the title character, Boy, a deaf mute with a vibrant imagination who escapes into the jungle when his family is murdered. Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) will also co-star as an assassin in Boy Kills World, which will be the feature film debut of German filmmaker Moritz Mohr.4. TILDA SWINTON AND GEORGE MACKAY LEAD POST-APOCALYPTIC MUSICAL IN THE END (Photo by Olivier Huitel/Avalon Photoshot, Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Sometimes, we are blessed with bizarre but amusing coincidences in the movie news world. For example, we just learned some big news about Christopher Nolan s Oppenheimer, which of course centers on a scientist who feared the end of the world. This same week, we also learned that director Joshua Oppenheimer no relation to J. Robert (we think) is preparing his next movie, and it will be a post-apocalyptic musical about the last human family on Earth. Titled The End, this will be Oppenheimer s first narrative feature; he previously directed the Oscar-nominated documentaries The Act of Killing (Certified Fresh at 95%) and The Look of Silence (Certified Fresh at 96%). Tilda Swinton will star in The End with George MacKay (1918) and Stephen Graham (Al Capone in HBO s Boardwalk Empire) as the last human family when filming starts sometime in 2022.5. THREE RISING STARS JOIN AFRICAN HISTORICAL EPIC THE WOMAN KING (Photo by ©IFC Films)We haven t seen many historical epics in recent years, but there was a time when they regularly racked up end-of-year awards and critical acclaim. One notable project still in the works despite this apparent downward trend, though, is The Woman King, about the Kingdom of Dahomey in the 18th and 19th centuries, which had an all-female military unit that may have inspired the Dora Milaje in Marvel s Black Panther. We ve known for a while that the lead role will be played by Viola Davis, and recent weeks have also seen the announcement of other actors like Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel) and John Boyega as King Ghazo. This week, the film s ensemble cast was further filled out by three rising phenoms in Jayme Lawson (Bella Real in the upcoming The Batman), Hero Fiennnes Tiffin (the nephew of Ralph Fiennes) and Masali Baduza (BBC s Noughts Crosses). The Woman King will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Old Guard, The Secret Life of Bees) for Sony/TriStar.6. EMMA STONE PRODUCING A24 HORROR I SAW THE TV GLOW (Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection)There are two companies that are now arguably most identified with horror namely Blumhouse and A24 and the types of horror stories that these two companies produce also couldn t be more different. Blumhouse does big concept horror like Get Out, The Purge, and The Invisible Man, while A24 produces films that fall into either indie or folk horror (or both) like The Witch, Hereditary, and Midsommar. Emma Stone s Fruit Tree production company is now collaborating with A24 on a new horror film called I Saw the TV Glow about two teenage outcasts who bond over their shared love of a scary television show, but the boundary between TV and reality begins to blur after it is mysteriously canceled. I Saw the TV Glow will be the second feature film from writer/director Jane Schoenbrun, whose We re All Going to the World s Fair (Fresh at 88%) debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year.7. GREEN BOOK DIRECTOR ADAPTING FRENCH TIME TRAVEL MOVIE (Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)To his credit, few people probably could have ever guessed that Peter Farrelly, the director of Dumb and Dumber and The Three Stooges, would go ont to direct a film that would win three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, but that s exactly what he did with Green Book (Certified Fresh at 77%) in 2018. With that in mind, perhaps it shouldn t be so surprising that Farrelly is now negotiating to direct an English language remake of the 2006 French time travel drama Seras-tu La. That film was about a 60-year-old widower in 2006 who gets the chance to travel 30 years backwards in time to attempt to prevent the death of his wife in 1976. In the meantime, Farrelly is currently filming The Greatest Beer Run Ever, based on the true story of a man who traveled to Vietnam in 1967 to visit his friends who were actively fighting in the Vietnam War.8. JAKE GYLLENHAAL TO STAR IN ADAPTATION OF PROPHET FROM DEADPOOL CO-CREATOR (Photo by Anne Marie Fox/TM & ©Copyright Fox Searchlight)Much can be argued about comic books of the late 1980s and early 1990s, but for the actual writers and artists who create comics, it all started to change in 1992 when a handful of the most popular young creators broke away from DC and Marvel to form their own company, called Image Comics. One of those Image co-founders was Rob Liefeld, who, during his time at Marvel, co-created Deadpool. For several years now, Liefeld has been working on getting movie deals for his own creations, and it sounds like one of them will finally start filming soon. Jake Gyllenhaal is now signed to star in Prophet, based on Liefeld s comic book of the same title, to be directed by former Marvel Studios stunt coordinator-turned director Sam Hargrave (Extraction, Fresh at 67%). Gyllenhaal will star as John Prophet, a man conscripted by Germans near the end of World War II and subjected to scientific experiments that gave him superhuman strength (basically like Captain America, if he were a Nazi) who then wakes up 20 years later in 1965. In the comics, John Prophet wears a purple-and-gold outfit with a haircut that has to be seen to be comprehended, but Jake Gyllenhaal s movie look will probably be different.On an Apple device?
