Judging from the first trailer, we ll also get some flashbacks to the beginning of the invasion? Infestation? Whatever you want to call it, it looks like Krasinski has done a bang-up job ratcheting up the tension, and audiences should be in for another great ride.The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) 55%Directed by: Michael ChavesStarring: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, Julian HilliardOpening on: June 4, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO MaxPatrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return to reprise their roles as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in this third chapter of the original Conjuring franchise, focusing on a real case they investigated in which a murder suspect invoked demonic possession as a defense for his crimes.

ChuStarring: Anthony Ramos, Leslie Grace, Corey Hawkins, Jimmy Smits, Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha PolancoOpening on: June 11, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO MaxCrazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu adapts Lin-Manuel Miranda s breakout musical, In the Heights. The show, which kicked off the Hamilton creator s career, won four Tony Awards in 2008, including Best Musical and Best Original Score. Chu demonstrated real skill with spectacle in Crazy Rich Asians, and the new movie shares similar themes of reclaiming one s heritage – it follows the stories of several characters in New York s heavily Latino neighborhood, Washington Heights, over three days.Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (2021) 67%Directed by: Will GluckStarring: James Corden, Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, David Oyelowo, Elizabeth DebickiOpening on: June 11, 2021 (formerly July 2, 2021)First the garden, then the world. The plot for this sequel to the surprise hit loosely based on the work of Beatrix Potter is still under lock and key, but we re sure it will involve James Corden s cheeky rabbit causing all sorts of PG-rated trouble. We do not expect any blackberries to be involved, however.The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (2021) 27%Directed by: Patrick HughesStarring: Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayek, Richard E. Grant, Morgan Freeman, Antonio Banderas, Frank GrilloOpening on: June 16, 2021 (formerly August 20, 2021)2017 s The Hitman s Bodyguard didn t exactly wow the critics, but it was a moderate hit at the box office, so why not give it another go? As indicated by the title, it s Salma Hayek s Sonia who now enlists the help of Michael (Ryan Reynolds) in order to rescue her husband and Michael s old rival Darius (Samuel L. Jackson).Luca (2021) 91%Directed by: Enrico CasarosaStarring: Jacob Tremblay, Maya Rudolph, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jim GaffiganOpening on: June 18, 2021 on Disney+The latest offering from Pixar (after 2020 s Soul) will be a deeply personal coming-of-age tale with a twist from director Enrico Casarosa.

Director Justin Lin was the man to turn the franchise around, delivering the series first Fresh entry on his third try with 2011 s Fast Five (Certified Fresh at 73%); since then, every Fast movie has landed on the red end of the Tomatometer. The new entry will bring the family back together to face off against a new villain played by John Cena who happens to be Dom Toretto s brother. Also, Han is back? What? The film was originally slated to open in May of 2020, but was pushed back almost a year to occupy the slot that had originally been reserved for Fast Furious 10.Zola (2020) 88%Directed by: Janicza BravoStarring: Taylour Paige, Riley KeoughOpening on: June 30, 2021Based on a notoriously stranger-than-fiction series of viral tweets (and a subsequent Rolling Stone article) from 2015, this adventure comedy follows a Detroit waitress who embarked on a road trip to Florida with a stripper and ended up spending the craziest two days of her life with her.The Boss Baby: Family Business (2021) 47%Directed by: Tom McGrathStarring: Alec Baldwin, Amy Sedaris, Lisa Kudrow, James Marsden, Jeff Goldblum, Jimmy Kimmel, Eva LongoriaOpening on: July 2, 2021 (formerly September 17, 2021) in theaters and streaming on PeacockThe Boss Baby might be Rotten, but its monster box office take shows the audience is hungry for more. This time, though, the story takes place years after the first film, when the original Boss Baby Ted voiced by Alec Baldwin and his older brother Tim have both grown up. Tim now has a smarty-pants infant of his own (Amy Sedaris), who embarks on a secret mission involving her big sister.The Forever Purge (2021) 50%Directed by: Everardo GoutStarring: Ana de la Reguera, Josh Lucas, Tenoch Huerta, Will PattonOpening on: July 2, 2021Set after 2016 s Purge: Election Year, in which the Purge was officially abolished, this next chapter in the franchise goes smaller than its predecessors. Forever follows a Mexican couple who become stranded on a ranch and besieged by strangers who miss the good ol days of lawless anarchy.Black Widow (2021) 79%Directed by: Cate ShortlandStarring: Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel WeiszOpening on: July 9, 2021 (formerly November 6, 2020) with Premier Access on Disney+The first Marvel property to kick off its Phase 4 (on the big screen, at least) will be this prequel focusing on Scarlett Johansson s Natasha Romanoff. The story takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War and follows Natasha as she deals with dangerous people from her past as a double agent. David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, and Florence Pugh co-star, and who knows? Maybe Jeremy Renner s Hawkeye will make an appearance.Escape Room: Tournament of Champions (2021) 48%Directed by: Adam RobitelStarring: Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Isabelle Fuhrman, Holland RodenOpening on: July 16, 2021 (formerly January 7, 2022)Taylor Russell and Logan Miller return to reprise their roles from the first Escape Room, a Saw-inspired horror-thriller that became something of a surprise hit when it premiered in January of 2019. Though we don t know exactly what the second film will be about, the first one ended on a pretty suggestive cliffhanger, so we can expect Ben (Miller) and Zoey (Russell) to take part in a new round of deadly games. Originally slated to debut in 2020, and then in 2021, the film was ultimately pushed even further back to 2022.Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021) 26%Directed by: Malcolm D. LeeStarring: LeBron James, Don Cheadle, Cedric Joe, Sonequa Martin-GreenOpening on: July 16, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO MaxSpeaking of old stories for new audiences, LeBron James long-awaited Space Jam sequel will finally arrive in 2021. In this updated take on the original, Bron and his son (Cedric Joe) are transported to a digital world by an evil AI (voiced by Don Cheadle), who forces the basketball icon to team up with the Looney Toons and play a game of hoops against his digital Goon Squad.Old (2021) 50%Directed by: M. Night ShyamalanStarring: Gael García Bernal, Eliza Scanlen, Thomasin McKenzie, Alex WolffOpening on: July 23, 2021 (formerly February 26, 2021)M. Night Shyamalan s newest project seems like a fairly straightforward idea, so it ll be interesting to see where he takes it. In Old, a family on vacation discovers that the isolated beach where they re relaxing is causing them to age rapidly. This is the first of two films the horror auteur is slated to direct for Universal in the coming years.Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins (2021) 36%Directed by: Robert SchwentkeStarring: Henry Golding, Samara Weaving, Iko UwaisOpening on: July 23, 2021 (formerly October 22, 2021)Snake Eyes, the mute ninja/commando previously portrayed by Ray Park in the live-action G.I. Joe film franchise, gets an origin story. The character s past has always been shrouded in mystery, save for the fact that he was once close friends with enemy ninja Storm Shadow and the fact that an explosion not only severely disfigured his face but also fried his vocal cords. Now we get to see how it all came to be.The Green Knight (2021) 88%Director: David LoweryStarring: Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, Barry Keoghan, Sarita ChoudhuryOpening on: July 30, 2021Based on the 14th century Arthurian poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, this medieval fantasy adventure written and directed by David Lowery (Ain t Them Bodies Saints, The Old Man the Gun) appears to be splashed with a touch of horror, at least judging from the cryptic trailer. It was originally slated for a 2020 release before it moved to 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions.Jungle Cruise (2021) 62%Director: Jaume Collet-SerraStarring: Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Édgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Paul GiamattiOpening on: July 30, 2021Following the path that Pirates of the Caribbean charted so successfully, this new film (franchise?) is based on the Disney theme park attraction of the same name. Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star, respectively, as a riverboat captain and a scientist on a hunt for a magical cure in this Depression-era action adventure. Comedian Jack Whitehall also joins in the fun, playing Blunt’s character’s brother. Collet-Serra has had a string of action-thriller hits working with Liam Neeson (Commuter, Non-Stop, Unknown), so there s a chance this one could be slightly darker than anticipated.Stillwater (2021) 75%Directed by: Tom McCarthyStarring: Matt Damon, Abigail Breslin, Camille CottinOpening on: July 30, 2021 (formerly November 6, 2020)Matt Damon stars in this thriller about an Oklahoma oil-rig worker who travels to Marseille, France to unravel a mystery and clear his daughter s name when when she is imprisoned for a crime she says she didn t commit. The film co-stars Abigail Breslin and is directed and co-written by Tom McCarthy, who won a pair of Oscars for 2015 s Spotlight, so there s considerable pedigree behind this project, and there s no reason not to be optimistic about it.Vivo (2021) 86%Directed by: Kirk DeMiccoStarring: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Zoe Saldana, Brian Tyree Henry, Nicole Byer, Leslie David BakerOpening on: July 30, 2021 in select theaters and August 6, 2021 on NetflixHot on the heels of the Oscar-nominated Moana and 2020 s In The Heights movie adaptation, Broadway legend Lin-Manuel Miranda will return to his musical roots with a new animated musical from Sony.

A handful of the cast members from the first film return, while Idris Elba, John Cena, Peter Capaldi, and more join in on the fun, as Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) gathers the Squad for a secret mission involving a giant starfish.Free Guy (2021) 80%Directed by: Shawn LevyStarring: Ryan Reynolds, Taika Waititi, Jody Comer, Joe Keery, Lel Rel HoweryOpening on: August 13, 2021 (formerly May 21, 2021)Ryan Reynolds brings his sarcastic wit and boyishly good-looking everyman charm to this self-referential, special effects-driven comedy. He stars as Guy, a nondescript bank teller non-player character (NPC) in a violent, open-world video game who suddenly becomes self-aware and decides to take his destiny into his own hands. Expect a lot of ironic, self-referential humor and over-the-top action shenanigans, which, when Ryan Reynolds is involved, is essentially its own genre these days.Respect (2021) 68%Directed by: Liesl TommyStarring: Jennifer Hudson, Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Marc Maron, Audra McDonald, Mary J. BligeOpening on: August 13, 2021 (formerly January 15, 2021)Jennifer Hudson has some big shoes to fill, as she steps into the role of Aretha Franklin in Liesl Tommy s biopic of the legendary singer in Respect.

With the late James Gandolfini no longer around, however, the only way to go was a prequel, and who better to portray a young Tony Soprano than Gandolfini s son himself, Michael?

Much of the cast was announced in bits and pieces, with a big reveal at Comic-Con 2019 and a key addition made in August. In brief, the Eternals are powerful immortals who helped shape humanity and history on Earth, and the cast includes a lot of big names, from Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek to Kumail Nanjiani and a couple of Game of Thrones kings, Richard Madden and Kit Harington. Plus, director Chloé Zhao is no slouch herself; she had one of 2018 s best-reviewed films in The Rider.

(Photo by Netflix/Courtesy Everett Collection)Best Horror Movies Directed by WomenWelcome to our guide of the best-reviewed horror movies directed by women! The first directors to break ground were Stephanie Rothman in the 1970s with cult film The Velvet Vampire, and Kathryn Bigelow in the 80s with another vampiric film, the neo-Western Near Dark. (Bigelow, of course, would go on to make further history as the first woman to win the Best Director Oscar for Zero Dark Thirty.) Still, it would take many more years for the horror space to truly open up. The 90s, generally regarded as a weak decade for horror, had no Fresh or Certified Fresh films directed by women. The 2000s saw some pick-up with American Psycho, Amer, and In My Skin.The 2010s were a watershed decade for horror: The genre became an engine that elevated underserved voices and adroitly exposed societal ills and terrors. Over 30 horror movies directed by women were marked Fresh and Certified Fresh in the 2010s, establishing names like Jennifer Kent (The Babadook), Issa López (Tigers Are Not Afraid), Julia Ducournau (Raw) and more. The 2020s continue strong with Leigh Janiak (Fear Street trilogy) and Nia DaCosta (Candyman). We ll be adding to this list as horror continues to grow and evolve. Now, discover the best horror movies directed by women!

The initial reactions to Avengers: Endgame following the first screenings were extremely positive. But now critics have had time to process what they saw, and well, they’re still mostly raving about the 22nd entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe it s currently Certified Fresh at 97%. Of course, there are some quibbles here and there, mainly about the length. Also, the long-form responses to the Avengers: Infinity War follow-up have some extra thoughts to share regarding Endgame’s best moments, as well as the movie’s MVP. Basically, just icing on the cake to get you even more hyped for this thing.Here’s what the critics are saying about Avengers: Endgame:How does it compare to Avengers: Infinity War?Endgame is a different type of film than Infinity War… there are actually moments of calm, where the audience can catch its breath. Charles Barfield, The PlaylistInfinity War floundered, it seems, so Endgame could soar. Angie Han, MashableWhere Infinity War had trouble finding time for characters, Endgame is about nothing but character work. Susana Polo, PolygonThe Russo Brothers were able to best themselves yet again. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorThere’s something considerably less elegant to the storytelling this time around. Peter Debruge, VarietyIs it the best Marvel movie yet?Avengers: Endgame is everything you’ve ever dreamed a Marvel movie could be…You will not be let down. Germain Lussier, io9One of the most ambitious, entertaining, emotional, and stunning blockbusters we’ve ever seen, and the best film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon thus far. Eric Eisenberg, Cinema BlendAvengers: Endgame is not the best Marvel movie ever made…But it is the most Marvel movie ever made, and there s something incredible about that. Angie Han, MashableAvengers: Endgame is the most Marvel movie in Marvel Cinematic Universe history. Charles Barfield, The PlaylistAvengers: Endgame is, without a doubt, the most confusing and convoluted of any of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, yet it’s also unbelievably satisfying. Mike Ryan, UproxxAvengers: Endgame is now my favorite MCU movie and is probably my favorite comic book movie to date. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorIt’s not the best of anything in terms of the Marvel franchise…Avengers: Endgame is a merely okay MCU movie. Scott Mendelson, Forbes(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel)Should we be surprised at this?Whatever you think Endgame will be, it will still confound and amaze and thrill you in ways that is hard to imagine. Mark Daniell, Toronto SunOne of the nicest surprises of Endgame is how fun it is… So much so that the three-hour run time seems to fly by. Angie Han, MashableThere are things in Endgame you never could have guessed would come back to light, but they do, and it’s glorious. Germain Lussier, io9Endgame is truly a masterful piece of storytelling, which both goes exactly where you expect it to, and not at all. Anne Cohen, Refinery29(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel)How busy is the movie?The Russos juggle the tones with balletic finesse. Eric Kohn, IndieWireThe film is sometimes juggling five or six stories simultaneously, but the Russos and their editors never let the audience get too far from one or the other. Germain Lussier, io9It’s strangely sentimental for a movie that features the biggest all-out superhero fight I can ever remember seeing. Mike Ryan, UproxxHow is the action?The fight scenes that do take place are epic… seeing the epic battle in the third act makes the last decade worth it. Danielle Solzman, Solzy at the MoviesThe action sequences were choreographed and shot so beautifully. Without spoiling anything, you will need to be prepared for the third act. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorAre we going to cry?As emotionally affecting as any Marvel movie has ever been… a genuinely moving drama. Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-TimesEndgame focuses on the original Avengers…it’s immensely gratifying and emotional to see them struggle on a plethora of levels. Germain Lussier, io9(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel)How satisfying is it as a finale?Endgame does pull off the feat of feeling remarkably like a finale, and even the most casual fan may feel the emotional tug of those moments. Don Kaye, Den of GeekAs a Part 2, Endgame is a hugely successful ending to a story that began a year ago but truly dates back a decade. Charles Barfield, The Playlist[It’s] a moment to stop and look back in amazement (or terror) at what the MCU has pulled off…Endgame is Marvel s crowning achievement. Angie Han, MashableHow lost will we be if we haven t seen all 21 previous movies?There’s no shaking the fact that Endgame is very much a Part 2 (or Part 22, honestly)… not for MCU newbies… casual fans need not apply If you’re not someone that knows every character by name, you’re in for a confusing three-hour film. Charles Barfield, The PlaylistMy daughter hasn’t seen very many of these and only had a few in-movie questions… it works on its own terms and unquestionably sticks the landing. Scott Mendelson, ForbesThis is a film designed for fans… Newcomers will likely find themselves totally lost in this tangle of characters and relationships and mythologies. Angie Han, MashableIt does feel like a wonderful gift to all those who have spent the last decade-plus emotionally engaging with the lives and adventures of these characters. Eric Eisenberg, Cinema BlendRyan FujitaniCan you give me some comparative context?Newcomers to the series may as well be watching a Transformers movie. Eric Kohn, IndieWireWhile there is a big third-act action sequence, it’s (despite some grand fan service) closer in structure and visuals to Ready Player One than The Two Towers. Scott Mendelson, ForbesAvengers: Endgame feels like the last scene of Titanic with everyone back on the ship, applauding. And, you know what? I’m okay with that. Mike Ryan, UproxxWho is the movie s MVP?From a performance standpoint, Chris Hemsworth, for the second film in a row, delivers the best outing of the large ensemble. Clayton Davis, AwardsCircuit.comHemsworth especially has quickly become, due to Thor: Ragnarok and the last two of these Avengers flicks, a subtle MVP of the franchise. Scott Mendelson, ForbesHemsworth has inexplicably become the MVP of this franchise, able to balance big, broad comedy with soul-searching pathos. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmAre there any big criticisms?Its biggest fault, however nitpicky, is that it doesn’t really confront or advance any of the big philosophical questions that have been running through the saga from the beginning. Scott Mendelson, ForbesI feel that Marvel’s secret weapon [Captain Marvel] is underused. Danielle Solzman, Solzy at the MoviesHas a sitcom episode like feel to it that is reminiscent of a ‘clip show’ – where the viewers get excerpts and highlights from previous episodes of the series. Clayton Davis, AwardsCircuit.comWill there ever be anything like this movie again?One can only hope that the next 10 years of Marvel storytelling — which will feature new heroes and villains — comes close to this. Mark Daniell, Toronto SunAvengers: Endgame opens everywhere on April 26.
(Photo by Netflix)New Netflix horror series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is as surprising a show based on Archie Comics’ Sabrina the Teenage Witch could be without going into full-bore HBO territory. Conjuring up old images of Satanic goings-on and populating its world with interesting characters, the show charmed its way to a Certified Fresh 88% on the Tomatometer. The show also proves once again, following his Riverdale success on The CW, that creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has a magic touch for reinventing decades-old Archie characters for television (some of which even predate Archie Andrews himself).Like other series based on comics, there’s a lot going within Sabrina s narrative and on the margins, so let’s take a look at some of the ways Sabrina honors its comic book roots, remixes old ideas, and casts its own unique spell on the viewer.SPOILER WARNING: THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS INFORMATION FROM THE ENTIRE FIRST SEASON OF CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA.That Chilling Credit SequenceSabrina s cousin series on The CW, Riverdale, airs week after week with just a title card, but Sabrina carries on the Netflix tradition of a lavish and mood-setting opening credit sequence. The animated clip honors the work of one specific artist: Robert Hack, who co-created the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic book with Aguirre-Sacasa in 2014. The art suggests the look of mid-20th century horror comics and Hammer Film Productions’ dream-like horror movies of the 1950s and 60s, something that sets Sabrina apart from other Archie horror titles (such as Afterlife with Archie and Jughead: The Hunger), and something Aguirre-Sacasa specifically set out to do following the success of Afterlife artist Francesco Francavilla saw on that title.The sequence also honors the original source material when the animated Sabrina morphs into the character as realized by longtime Archie artist (and Sabrina co-creator) Dan DeCarlo for the “Based upon the comic book by Archie Comics” credit. While the series may be nothing like those Archie tales, the rest of the sequence certainly sets the mood for the horror to come.Wild Reinvention Diyah Pera/NetflixOne of the biggest departures involves Edward Spellman’s real intentions for his daughter. In the pages of the comic book, Edward appears to have a long-term plan for his half-mortal offspring that is interrupted when his sisters Zelda and Hilda turn him into a tree and raise Sabrina themselves. The television Edward simply exchanged Sabrina s soul for the opportunity to marry a mortal woman, and Zelda (Mirando Otto) appears to be honoring his wishes while leaving his status as a tree a rather large question mark for those who have read the book and watched the show. While we may learn more about that comic plotline in the series second season, it s also just as likely that Edward and his wife are as deceased as one can be in the witching world.Instead, the person on the show with a future mapped out for Sabrina appears to be Satan himself — and those intentions will no doubt come to light in the second season now that the Dark Lord has apparently won.Other departures from the comics include the re-imaging of Rosalind (Jaz Sinclair) as Sabrina’s best friend instead of her constant rival, the name Michelle Gomez’s character uses while teaching at Baxter High (more on her later), and the addition of Suzie (Lachlan Watson), a second major friend for Sabrina with a pretty interesting subplot tying back to the earliest days of Greendale.Is This the Past or Is It Riverdale?(Photo by Netflix)The Chilling Adventures comic book is a tale of the mid-sixties; Sabrina’s 16th birthday falls on Oct. 31, 1963. The time period is key to the tone of the book and the various horror staples it honors, but the television series plays fast and loose with time. The first episode could be happening in 1963 — there’s very little on display to challenge that assertion — but small aspects of modern days emerge: Ambrose (Chance Perdomo) types away on a laptop when Sabrina comes home after nearly telling her boyfriend Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch) the truth. Harvey is later seen using a flip phone while Sabrina calls him on a corded rotary-dial telephone. While color printing can be seen on all of the movie posters in Sabrina’s room and at Cerberus Books, color photography appears to be non-existent. Cars also seem antiquated to preserve some of the comics period aspects, although music choices and movie references throughout the season suggest a more contemporary series.The choice to set Sabrina in a non-specific time period plays to the dream-like quality of Hack’s art in the comics. It allows the exquisitely produced show to stand in its own gorgeous reality even as Riverdale apparently exists across the river. Speaking of Aguirre-Sacasa s CW hit, that show also enjoys playing with earlier eras though its setting is squarely contemporary. Could Sabrina and Riverdale s love of older eras mean something for their apparently shared universe? As Riverdale previously established, Greendale is not a place you want to get caught after midnight. And considering Riverdale’s own dabbling with dark arts this season, the two shows may be connected by more than the Sweetwater River despite anything Netflix or The CW have said on the matter. To wit: Riverdale s recently deceased Ben Button (Moses Thiessen) briefly appears in an episode of Sabrina as a pizza delivery boy. Time and space may bend around the two shows, but it seems their towns are populated by some of the same people.The CW InfluenceBesides the shared Riverdale geography, Sabrina features more than a few thematic ties to that show and its format. Sabrina was originally developed as a CW show before jumping to Netflix, and just about every scene set at Baxter High feels like a story prompt from a network version of the series. Consider Roz’s anger when she cannot do a report on Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye: Resolving that plot would be an entire episode of a CW show instead of a half-realized concept on Netflix’s version. Though, to be fair, that half-explored concept led to a far more interesting idea as far as Roz is concerned. But it s easy to see how The CW version of Sabrina could have pumped the breaks on the Satanism in favor of Sabrina using her witchy powers to outsmart Principal Hawthorne (Bronson Pinchot) while keeping her magic secret from her friends. As a 22-episode season, episodes like that would be necessary instead of the brisker pace Sabrina sets at its streaming home.Harvey Kinkle 2.0(Photo by Diyah Pera/Netflix)One crucially important aspect of converting Chilling Adventures of Sabrina from panel to pixel is the reinvention of Harvey Kinkle. Throughout the season, viewers are told he is Sabrina’s key link to the mortal realm and her intense teenage love for him sets off a number of the show’s ongoing plots. But in order for it to work, Harvey had to be much more complex than his comic book counterpart. In the pages of Chilling Adventures, he is a typical mid- 60s football hunk who s far more interested in sleeping with Sabrina than just about anything else, and that interest gets him into a lot of trouble. Sabrina works very hard to save him from his fate, but the relationship is far less idealized in the comic — which might for the best considering who ends up inhabiting Harvey’s body in that story.On television, Lynch portrays Harvey as a more sensitive and understanding boyfriend. He harbors a lot of fears borne from a possible encounter with Satan at age 8, which is also something of a trigger for him. No doubt his poor relationship with his father has something to do with his anger when he perceives that anyone might think he is a coward. Then there s what he really wants to do with his life: make comics. That love of comic books is something the comic-book Harvey would never be able to admit — even if he thought about anything other than scoring on the field or otherwise.References Galore(Photo by Diyah Pera/Netflix)Sabrina embraces and celebrates horror movies and comics informing the series. Horror movies spotted on various TV sets throughout the first season include the original Night of the Living Dead, the sublime Carnival of Souls, and the 1930s classic Freaks — films all directly or indirectly about inclusion and exclusion. During Harvey’s first visit to the Spellman house, Ambrose lists off Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Grant Morrison as favorite comic book creators. The three men all redefined horror at DC Comics in the 1980s and 90s, and their efforts would eventually lead to DC’s Vertigo imprint.Even the use of The Bluest Eye as the book surreptitiously banned by Principal Hawthorne and the Greendale School Board speaks to a number of themes within Sabrina, as well as a few heavy subjects the show only alludes to despite its full embrace of Satanic imagery. The eye motif pays off when Roz learns the truth about her failing eyesight. And although it was perhaps not the intent of the series, prominently highlighting the novel also underscores the fact the show features two black characters whose stories include their eyes and an issue of paternity.Then there are the other literary allusions, like the antagonistic Principal Hawthorne —a family name steeped in American witchcraft lore, beginning with pre–Revolutionary America judge John Hathorne (great-great grandfather of The Scarlet Letter author Nathaniel Hawthorne), who oversaw the Salem witch trials in 1692. Sabrina s attorney is Daniel Webster (John Rubinstein), taking his name from the real and highly regarded 1800s lawyer and politician, who is also represented in fiction in Stephen Vincent Benet s The Devil and Daniel Webster. In the story, judge Hathorne is appointed by Satan to oversee a trial with Webster as attorney for the defense. In Sabrina, the character of Webster has his own run-in with the devil that aids his ability to defend his client.That the show can make use of all these references without stumbling is a magic trick in its own right.Presenting Madame Satan(Photo by Diyah Pera/Netflix)Perhaps the show’s greatest bit of witchcraft is Gomez’s portrayal of Mary Wardwell, a character we eventually learn is also Madame Satan. Based on one of the oldest characters in the Archie Comics’ stable — she predates the company’s name-change to Archie Comics — Madame Satan saw her Pep Comics strip cancelled in 1941 to make way for Archie Andrews and the eventual Riverdale gang. Originally depicted as a temptress who becomes Satan’s footsoldier on Earth, the character cloaks herself as a dark-haired woman, hiding her green, desiccated pallor and skull-studded eyes.Dormant for decades, the character briefly appeared in the 2013 Archie Comics series The Fox before Aguirre-Sacasa brought her back at the end of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s first issue. Reimagined as Edward Spellman’s spurned lover Iola, her ambitions for Sabrina center on simple revenge even as her methods become more and more complicated.Thanks to the comic book’s strange release schedule and indeterminate length, turning the character into someone looking to sit at the left hand of the Devil is far more compelling for television. It makes Madame Satan a truly great opponent for Sabrina, as the character also becomes her mentor. Before Sabrina can hope to take on Satan, she must first extricate herself from his most dedicated servant. Or, alternatively, Sabrina must become her. Either way, it allows for the conflict to be resolved in the second 10-episode season (or last as long as the series does). And with Gomez playing the part, hopefully Madame Satan stays involved for a long time to come.Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 1 is currently available to stream on Netflix.
This Weekly Ketchup brings you another ten headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Batgirl, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Blade, and Clerks III.This WEEK S TOP STORYIN THE HEIGHTS STAR TO BE THE NEW BATGIRL IN SOLO MOVIE(Photo by Warner Bros.)A common publicity strategy for really big projects is to slowly tease out a group of actors that is being considered for a role, before officially announcing who actually got the role in a following news cycler. This week, HBO Max sped the process up quite a bit for the announcement of who will be starring as Barbara Gordon, AKA Batgirl, in their upcoming solo movie. On Monday, the big news was that Warner Bros and DC Comics had started testing a small circle of actresses for the role that included Isabela Merced (Dora and the Lost City of Gold ), Zoey Deutch (Zombieland: Double Tap), and Haley Lu Richardson. That was on Monday. On Wednesday, the role was announced as going to Leslie Grace, one of the stars of Lin-Manuel Miranda s In the Heights. Batgirl will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys for Life) as an expected 2023 HBO Max exclusive. Leslie Grace took to Twitter to exclaim, I am BEYOND EXCITED to embody Barbara Gordon, your #Batgirl ! I cannot believeeee what I’m writing rn… Other Top Headlines1. I MAY DESTROY YOU STAR SIGNS ON FOR MYSTERIOUS KEY ROLE IN BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER (Photo by Mark Johnson / ©E4/Channel 4 /Everett Collection)We ve known for a while that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled for release next summer on July 8, 2022, but the actual premise of the sequel is still shrouded in mystery. We can now confirm that Winston Duke will be reprising his role as M Baku in the sequel. And the latest casting news that sent Twitter all into a flurry is that Michaela Coel (creator and star of HBO s I May Destroy You) has joined Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in an undisclosed key role. There are dozens of characters from the comics that Coel could possibly be playing, but speculation immediately jumped to her playing Storm, who in the comics was once married to T Challa. Of course, one of the lingering rumors about the film is that Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico) is playing Namor the Sub-Mariner. Presuming the film does deal with the political intrigues between Wakanda and Atlantis, that also opens the door to Coel playing one of the Atlanteans, like perhaps Namor s longtime romantic interest, Lady Dorma.2. LOOKING FOR DETAILS ABOUT JORDAN PEELE S MYSTERIOUS THIRD FILM? NOPE.(Photo by Universal)Jordan Peele s first two films as director (Get Out, Us) had such an impact that any news about his third movie is noteworthy, even it s just a title and an enigmatic poster. Speaking of which, the title of Jordan Peele s next movie will be Nope. Whatever it s about, we do know that the stars are Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Keke Palmer (Hustlers, Akeelah and the Bee), and Steven Yuen (Minari, The Walking Dead), and that it s scheduled for July 22, 2022.3. WHOOPI GOLDBERG TAKING ON THE EMMETT TILL STORY(Photo by ThinkFilm)Emmett Louis Till was a 14-year-old boy who was lynched and murdered in Mississippi in 1955, leading to the controversial trial and a legacy of providing the burgeoning civil rights movement an example of injustice for African-Americans. The story of Till has been told many times in documentary form, including the 2003 Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Award winner The Murder of Emmett Till. The true story of the aftermath of Till s murder will soon be told as a dramatic film in Till, with Whooopi Goldberg and Danielle Deadwyler (Paradise Lost, HBO s Watchmen) attached to play Till s grandmother and mother, respectively. Till will be directed by Chinonye Chukwu, who won the 2019 Sundance Film Festival Dramatic Grand Jury Prize for Clemency.4. MARVEL HIRES MOGUL MOWGLI DIRECTOR TO STAKE OUT BLADE (Photo by Strand Releasing/Everett Collection)Riz Ahmed, who received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for Sound of Metal, followed that film up with a British rap drama called Mogul Mowgli. That film actually premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February of 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its release was delayed all the way until September 3rd, 2021. Someone at Marvel Studios must ve gotten their hands on Mogul Mowgli early because they have already started negotiating with director Bassam Tariq to direct the upcoming reboot of Blade, starring Mahershala Ali. No details have been revealed about what Marvel s new version of Blade might be tackling first. Screenwriter Stacy Osei-Kuffour (story editor on HBO s Watchmen and Amazon s Hunters) was hired to adapt Blade in February, and is expected to start filming in sometime in 2022.5. ZACK SNYDER TO DIRECT ARMY OF THE DEAD SEQUEL SOME DAY(Photo by Netflix/Everett Collection)Zack Snyder started 2021 with Zack Snyder s Justice League as one of HBO Max s most ambitious exclusives in March. We ve since received Snyder s Army of the Dead on Netflix, and Snyder is currently filming the prequel spinoff series Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, giving Snyder a new post-DC franchise. This week, Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder signed a new two year deal with Netflix, and that news included the revelation that the Snyders are now officially developing an Army of the Dead sequel. That film will not, however, be produced for a while, as Snyder s immediate priority is the science-fiction adventure Rebel Moon (also for Netflix), which is being compared to Star Wars in its scope and scale. The cast of Rebel Moon have not been announced yet.6. TWILIGHT DIRECTOR RECRUITS BRIAN COX AND KATE BECKINSALE FOR PRISONER S DAUGHTER(Photo by Amazon/Everett Collection)Usually, when a prolific director delivers a mid-budget movie that earns over 0 million, leading to a billion five-movie franchise, they become a household name. That s not really how things have turned out for original Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, although she certainly has stayed busy. Hardwicke s next film will be a family drama called Prisoner s Daughter, and her stars will be Brian Cox (Succession, X2) as the titular prisoner, and Kate Beckinsale (Underworld, this week s Jolt) as the daughter. In related news, Beckinsale also made the news this week for talking about how she pitched Marvel on a Blade Underworld vampire movie crossover.7. KEVIN SMITH ASSURES US, CLERKS III IS STILL OPEN(Photo by TWC/Everett Collection)When director Kevin Smith got his Clerks crew back together in 2006 for the sequel Clerks II, it was the end of a 12-year wait. As it turns out, however, the delay between Clerks II and Clerks III will have been even longer, presuming it s released sometime in either 2022 or 2023 (making the gap 16 or 17 years). The first two Clerks movies were distributed by Miramax (as were many of Smith s early films). Recently, Lionsgate stepped in to acquire Clerks III and get the sequel going. With a new studio home, Smith is now set to start filming Clerks III on location in New Jersey, with most of his Clerks II cast returning, including Rosario Dawson, Jeff Anderson, Brian O Halloran, and Jay Mewes and Kevin Smith reprising their Jay and Silent Bob characters. The premise will involve Randal (Anderson) suffering a massive heart attack, which inspires him to get his friends together to make a movie about his life as a convenience store clerk.8. ANTHONY RAMOS TO STAR IN DISTANT SCI-FI THRILLER NEXT YEAR (Photo by ©Universal Pictures)Universal Pictures announced release dates this week for two movies that we didn t previously know much about. Anthony Ramos (In the Heights, Hamilton), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, TV s Heroes), and Naomi Scott (Aladdin, Power Rangers) will star in the 2022 sci-fi thriller Distant, about a spaceship in the future that is hit by an asteroid, putting the characters in a Gravity-style survival situation. Comedian Jo Koy will star in the second Universal movie, Easter Sunday, as a man returning home for an Easter celebration with his riotous, bickering, eating, drinking, laughing, loving family, in this love letter to his Filipino-American community. Easter Sunday will be directed by Jay Chandrasekhar (Super Troopers, Beerfest).9. DWAYNE JOHNSON CONFIRMS HE S DONE WITH FAST FURIOUS(Photo by Universal)Your Twitter feed may have been recently full of stories of the ongoing back-and-forth between Fast Furious franchise stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, but this week, it seemed to finally reach a point how the future movies will be developed. That s because Dwayne Johnson was quoted this week as saying, I wish them well on Fast 9. And I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast Furious movies they do that will be without me. Dwayne Johnson last played his Hobbs character in Hobbs Shaw in 2019, and there had been talk of a sequel, but in February, one of the producers suggested it might take longer than a while. And now, Johnson s comment about the rest of Fast Furious movies they do without me suggests he s done, period.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.

亚博是什么APP This August, Rotten Tomatoes turns 21 and to mark the occasion we’re celebrating the 21 Most Memorable Moments from the movies over the last 21 years. For this special video series, which we’ve been publishing over the last four months, we spoke to the actors and filmmakers who made those moments happen, revealing behind-the-scenes details about how the moments came to be and diving deep into why they’ve stuck with us for so long. You’ll find big ’90s twists – yep, he sees dead people – as well as super-recent cliffhangers, like Thanos’s universe-halving Snap. There are laughs (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Elf, Bridesmaids) and romance (The Notebook, Spider-Man) and more than a few scares (The Blair Witch Project, 28 Days Later…). But which moment is the single most memorable of the last 21 years? Well, that’s where you come in. We’re asking you to watch the below videos and then vote on your favorite movie moment of the last two decades (and a bit).Voting is open now and runs until midnight Friday August 16 and we will announce the winner on August 19. Fans get a single vote – so choose wisely – and moments are listed in the order they were published over the past few months, most often to tie in with anniversaries and relevant occasions.Take me to the voting!“Remember Me!?” from Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) 97%Director George Miller: “It’s a moment by the way, I think, is available only to her. I don’t think any other character could have done it. I remember the line. I remember Charlize on that day said that she wanted to say the line. It wasn’t a written line. She said, ‘Look, I feel like I really want to say it. OK by you?’ I said, ‘Great.’ It just hit a sweet spot in amongst that action, and it was a little pause before the brutality of the moment and the continuation of the action that was to come.”Read director George Miller’s full interview about the “Remember me!?” moment.The Snap from Avengers: Infinity War (2018) 85%Co-director Joe Russo: “Anth and I, through our entire experience at Marvel, always tried to make very disruptive choices with each film. The end of Winter Solider, good guys and the bad guys, we flip everything on its head. In Civil War we divorce the Avengers. With Infinity War we knew we wanted to make a strong narrative choice. There s an adage where you write yourself into a corner, and you try to figure out how to get out. That usually creates really dramatic moments for the audience. There s no bigger way to write ourselves into a corner than killing half the characters.”Read directors Joe and Anthony Russo s full interview about the moment Thanos devastates the universe.Satine s Entrance from Moulin Rouge (2001) 76%Director Baz Luhrmann: “I thought, wouldn t it be great if we put her in a circus trapeze and we did a trapeze number, but we ll have to have a stunt person. But Nicole being Nicole was like, ‘No way.’ So she trained with a circus person for a good, I would say, two weeks to do that number and when you see her swing around that s her. It s her all the way through that footage. She s on the trapeze, she s being swung around, she comes down, she falls into all those guys. So she was 100% stunt-free on that moment.”Read director Baz Luhrmann and production and costume designer Catherine Martin s full interview about Satine s big moment.The Joker from The Dark Knight (2008) 94%Makeup artist John Caglione Jr.: “Heath [Ledger] was great in the chair. Special actors like Heath – and my experience with Al Pacino over the years – these actors help you relax so that you can bring your game… I always got the feeling that [Heath] had already worked it out in his head, from what I remember. He knew where he was going. Early on, in first meeting Heath and playing around with the makeup, he already kind of had it all figured out. It was my job to just basically gild the lily and try to catch up with him, really. That s what I felt.”Read makeup artist John Caglione Jr. and marketing company 42 Entertainment CEO Susan Bonds full interview about this iconic take on the Joker.Heather s Confessional from The Blair Witch Project (1999) 86%Co-writer and co-director Eduardo Sánchez: “The direction was: You re not going to make it out of here. This is like an internal monologue. We were directing these actors to almost be like their conscience speaking to them. For Heather, it s like, ‘You re responsible for this. You re the one who brought them out here. You didn t heed the warnings. You knew this is dangerous and you brought these guys out here. Say your goodbyes. If you want to apologize to people, apologize to people, just basically say goodbye. We called it a confessional, your last confessional before you re going. You re not going to get out, and hopefully, somebody will find these tapes and will be able to tell your story, but tell your mom goodbye, and tell your family goodbye.”Read writer-directors Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick s full interview about Heather s confessional.The Upside-Down Kiss from Spider-Man (2002) 90%Director Sam Raimi: In the rain while he was doing the scene, I remember, he was slightly drowning because he couldn’t wipe his nose and the water was falling down into his upside-down nose, into his nostrils. So he was kinda drowning, and the only way he could breathe was through his mouth. It doesn’t look un-pleasurable, but I think it must’ve been.”Read Sam Raimi and stunt coordinator Jeff Habberstad s full interview about the upside-down kiss.London is Deserted from 28 Days Later (2002) 87%Director Danny Boyle: One of the technical advantages of using these smaller cameras is that you could shoot a location, not multiple times, but you could shoot it from multiple viewpoints simultaneously. Cillian was in no rush, he could just walk across. But you don’t get much time at these locations free of people even at four o’clock in the morning when we shot. So what happened was we hired a lot of students, because they’re cheap, to be our traffic marshals.”Read Danny Boyle s full interview about creating an eerily deserted London for the opening moments.A Kiss in the Rain from The Notebook (2004) 53%Director Nick Cassavetes: There was something built up between these two kids, and it has nothing to do with directing. Because when we turned the cameras on, the scene was like: He s mad at her, she s mad at him, and then he says that he wrote her every day, and that s the key that unlocks the door. And when that door got unlocked, I didn t need to direct nothing. They wound up together for many years after the movie, which is…I don t know if I m proud of it, but I think it s fantastic that they found each other like that. And I think that was the moment, because they weren t together before that kiss. But they were together after that kiss, so maybe that was one of the deciding moments.”Read Nick Cassavetes full interview about the kiss in the rain moment.Crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Selma (2014) 99%Representative John Lewis: I truly believe that Oprah, Ava, and the staff working on the film sought my involvement because they knew my history. Selma represented an attempt to redeem the soul of America, to help us move closer to the participation of all people in the political process. This film can educate and inform the mind of hundreds and thousands of young people around America and around the world.”Read Representative John Lewis and actor Stephan James s full interview about the final bridge-crossing moment. Cars don t fly! from Furious 7 (2015) 82%Actor Vin Diesel: And it was that moment where we realized that Fast and Furious didn’t need to be restricted in any way. That we were so thorough about story and character, and it’s so much a tale of brotherhood and family, right, that we were allowed these kind of outrageous and fantasy-filled moments, and flying through the air was playing to that. Flying from building to building was playing to that. It was one of those solutions to the riddle, or answers to the riddle, How do we one-up the spectacle of each film? ”Read Vin Diesel s full interview about the skyscraper-jump moment.Juan teaches Chiron to Swim in Moonlight (2016) 98%Cinematographer James Laxton: When Barry alerted us to the storm approaching, we gathered our equipment together as quickly as possible, ran out into the water, and in some respects… I don t want to say improvised, because what is in the script is on camera, if not in the exact way it was depicted. But we had a lot more shots in our shot list, and [were going to be] much more organized about capturing it. We had to really get out there and let Mahershala as Juan guide this young man, and [have] me out in the water, as well, trying to capture this swimming lesson as it came. It [was shot] almost like a documentary, less so like a film in some respects. Sometimes your reaction to moments is as good as a well detailed plan might be. Sometimes it s even better.”Read James Laxton s full interview about the swimming lesson moment.Carl and Ellie in the Opening of Up (2009) 98%Director Pete Docter: There’s one moment in that montage where Ellie has to go to the doctor and it’s implied that they can’t have children for whatever reason. That raised some eyebrows even here at work as we were developing the film. So, we did experiment with taking it out. And we thought, ‘Well, maybe [the sequence] could still work [without it] because there’s some really charming stuff.’ But the strange thing was, not only did we not feel the emotion as strongly in that one little sequence, but as we watched the rest of the film the whole film lost a little bit. I can’t really fully explain that other than to say it was a real dark, low moment for them that I think made that relationship feel more real. The sort of pain and loss of that situation bonded those characters together and made you empathize more with them. Read Pete Docter s full interview about Up s opening sequence.Gollum Talks to Smeagol from The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) 95%Actor Andy Serkis: I d never considered myself a voice actor, just a regular actor, and I had to kind of think my way into it. I started to work on this notion that he s called Gollum because of the way he sounds – and what would make his voice sound like that? I started to think about constriction of the throat, and as I was doing that, I was actually fortunate enough to witness my cat throwing up a fur ball. It suddenly gave me this idea that the whole physicality of the role would be determined by this force within, which is kind of built out of guilt and torment – this involuntary physical action is what caused this sound coming out of his mouth. The cat throwing up a fur ball is actually what generated the idea for this involuntary spewing out of words. Read Andy Serkis s full interview about the Gollum-Smeagol moment.The Bridesmaids get Food Poisoning from Bridesmaids (2011) 90%Co-Writer Annie Mumolo: We [originally] had a fantasy sequence where they go into the dress shop, and Kristen s character tries on this dress and she has this fantasy that when she wears this dress, she s all of a sudden in a castle. And all the men at the wedding are fawning over her. There s so many of them wanting her so badly [that] just to escape from the castle she goes running out into this field and runs into the forest. And she naturally sees Christian Bale there, who’s chopping wood without a shirt on. And they end up on a bearskin rug, and he was combing her hair, and it was this expansive sequence of her little love affair with Christian Bale. In the meantime, [back in the real world] Helen gets the women to get the dress she wants because Annie is caught up in her fantasy. So that was the original [scene]. And then I think Judd said at one point we ll never get Christian Bale to do this. And then we tried to put in Matt Damon and then we re like, As if we re going to get Matt Damon to do this.’ He was concerned we weren t going to get anybody to do it. And also he felt it needed harder comedy there, rather than what we had. So, we sadly let that go. We did not want to let that go. We loved that sequence. Read Annie Mumolo and director Paul Feig s full interview about the food-poisoning moment.Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort Duel from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) 96%Director David Yates: “Harry so
