Those in the industry keeping an eye on the progress of Avengers: Endgame in its hunt to take down the global box record set by Avatar are probably some combination of bored, tired, and frustrated. It must feel like watching a sporting event with the most incredible offensive performance in the first half and a slow petering out in the second. Nevertheless, it has seemed inevitable for weeks now that Disney and Marvel would need to take alternative routes if they were indeed dead-set on achieving that ultimate goal: Beating Avatar’s global haul of ,787,965,087 (.79 billion). As of Tuesday, Endgame is currently at ,744,012,261 (.74 billion), or ,952,826 million behind.Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced on Tuesday that Avengers: Endgame’s theatrical run is far from finished. The Marvel behemoth is taking a major step to snatch up more millions in the box office race: Come next week there will be “a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises” for those who make it out to see Endgame again. But unlike those who bought tickets to Meet Joe Black back in 1998 to get their first whiff of The Phantom Menace trailer, fans will have to wait through the three-hour film to get their new kernels during the end credits.(Photo by © Twentieth Century Fox)Will this be enough to bring Avengers: Endgame over the finish line? The quick answer is probably no, but it is worth exploring its chances – beginning with its path to the present. When Endgame opened on April 25 with Thursday night previews, it grossed 7.1 million through Sunday night. That was .4 million more than Star Wars: The Force Awakens made in December 2015. Despite such an incredible head start, it would still end up well short of Awakens’ domestic record of 6.6 million; Endgame was at 1.7 million on Tuesday, good enough for second all-time at the domestic box office.AVENGERS: ENDGAME (Weekends)Weekend #2 7,383,211 (#2 second weekend all-time)Weekend #3 ,299,904 (#4 third weekend all-time)Weekend #4 ,973,505 (#5 fourth weekend all-time)Weekend #5 ,200,742 (#13 fifth weekend all-time)Weekend #6 ,037,491 (#77 sixth weekend all-time)Weekend #7 ,870,963 (#146 seventh weekend all-time)Weekend #8 ,725,855 (#134 eighth weekend all-time)Some of those later numbers get skewed in the weeds of platform releases and award chasers getting later wide launches, but that is still quite the drop from weekend five to six. Three new releases this week will likely push Endgame out of the top 10 temporarily, but the new launch with extra footage may help it reclaim the slot it has held for eight weeks. (Avatar spent 14 straight weeks in the top 10; The Force Awakens spent 10.)The most successful re-releases in the past have been those that have offered new experiences. The special editions of the original Star Wars trilogy in 1997 included renewed special effects as well as excised and new footage that resulted in grosses of 8.2 million (Star Wars), .5 million (The Empire Strikes Back), and .4 million (Return of the Jedi). Disney had similar successes with its 3D conversions of The Lion King (.2 million), Beauty and the Beast (.6 million), Finding Nemo (.1 million), and Monsters, Inc. ( million). 3D re-issues of Titanic (.8 million), Jurassic Park (.3 million), and even The Phantom Menace (.4 million) did solid numbers.These numbers are precisely in the wheelhouse of what Endgame is chasing since, as of Tuesday, it was .95 million behind Avatar’s global record. However, these films were events not just for their extras but because for a number of people they offered an opportunity to see these films for the first time on the big screen. The earliest re-release amongst all those films mentioned was Monsters, Inc., which came just 11 years after its first run. Avengers: Endgame would be 10 weeks – so it might not even technically be a “re-release.”What does Endgame have going in its favor? Recent history for starters. Black Panther was 11 weeks and 1 million into its run when it jumped back into the top five, dropping just 4% from the week prior. A week before Endgame’s release, Captain Marvel rose 5.7% from the week prior, jumping from sixth to fourth and having the 17th best seventh weekend ever. Then, on Endgame’s record-breaking weekend, Captain Marvel was the number 2 film in the country on its eighth week of release, dropping just 8.7% for the 12th best eighth weekend ever. The Endgame re-issue release would come four days before the next chapter in the MCU, Spider-Man: Far From Home, opens. That film could see the same kind of post-Avengers bump that propelled Iron Man 3 to over 0 million.(Photo by © Sony Pictures)Will a pre-Spider-Man launch in the film’s 10th week of release be enough though? Black Panther made a little over million from weekend 10 on. Captain Marvel made a little more than million. We could just as easily say that Endgame is only .2 million away from the true record as that would discount Avatar getting a re-release as a “Special Edition” in 812 theaters on Aug. 27, 2010, just a few weeks before its first run finished with 9.7 million. Therein lies the potential rub though.How much business does Endgame lose this weekend with Toy Story 4 seeking to break its own records – let alone with people now knowing if they wait just another week they could pay the same amount and see the new additions? Optimistically, another to million this weekend worldwide, and let’s double that with the reissue the week after; Endgame would still need another to million going forward. Marvel and Disney could certainly try another re-release around awards time, as there will certainly be some outside chatter for a legacy reward. But that is likely small peanuts, too. Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk made just .69 million in its awards season re-release in December 2017.Maybe Avengers: Endgame will need another decade to pass Avatar. When the dust is settled and a new generation of Marvel lovers are finishing up the latest phase of the MCU and discovering the tales of the original group that their parents loved and supported, perhaps an anniversary re-issue is announced and the final few bucks it needs for the record will be handed over for one last ticket. Unless Avatar 2, 3, 4, or 5 has already moved the record forward.Like this?

Chris Evans took a break from his Marvel superhero duties in 2013 to star in Bong Joon-ho s sci-fi movie Snowpiercer. Based on the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, the story followed a high-speed, non-stop bullet train filled with the final remnants of the human race as a second Ice Age turned the planet into an unlivable, post-climate change wasteland.The inhabitants on-board the locomotive represent a sampling of a society that was all but wiped out. The overcrowded back-end of the train is where the underprivileged exist, forced to follow the various orders handed down by militia, while they eat gelatinous blocks of protein for every meal. Contrasting this gritty despair is that of the passengers residing in the front of the train. Here, it s like a high-class vacation every day, where the elite are pampered with all sorts of perks like sushi, pedicures, and lavish nighttime parties.Bong s film was widely celebrated, so it wasn t too surprising when it was announced two years later that a Snowpiercer TV series was in development. A pilot was ordered in 2016, and TNT ordered the series in 2018.It s been four years since the news hit, though. During that time, the project has been hit with a flurry of setbacks. Behind-the-scenes creative disputes and the shuffling of the project — it was moved from TNT to TBS, and then back again — has kept the series stuck in development hell.After all this time, it is looking like the small-screen adaptation of this futuristic dystopian tale is finally on a hopeful trajectory. So let s get into the nitty-gritty and explore everything we know about the upcoming Snowpiercer TV series.A STELLAR CAST IS ON BOARD(Photo by Monica Burns/Turner)For such a high-concept TV series, one would expect a collection of top-notch actors to come along for the ride, and the ensemble brought together for the TNT series is pretty impressive. After 19 years, Academy Award-winner Jennifer Connelly (Alita: Battle Angel) returns to television — anyone remember the short-lived procedural, The $treet? — to play first-class passenger and head of hospitality Melanie Cavill. Tony Award–winner Daveed Diggs, who is best known for his roles in the musical Hamilton and his feature writing debut Blindspotting, plays former police detective Layton Well, a man who lives in squalor in the back of the train.Other actors featured in the show s cast include Mickey Sumner (American Made), Tony Award-winner Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Annalise Basso (Slender Man), Steven Ogg (The Walking Dead), and Timothy V. Murphy (Sons of Anarchy).EXPECT MORE CLASS STRUGGLES, SOCIAL POLITICS, AND SOME EPIC WORLD-BUILDING(Photo by TNT)In the new series, the constantly-moving, self-sustaining train that is known to its inhabitants as the Rattling Ark will still be there. But while we re getting the futuristic visuals of this post-apocalyptic version of Noah s Ark — along with the similar themes of class, race, and social politics featured in the graphic novel and movie — the mechanics of the Snowpiercer world will be expanded. As a fan of the film and reading the scripts, it broadens the world exponentially. And that s one of the advantages of TV: you have time, series star Diggs previously told IGN. So the politics that are hinted at in the film are explored in much more depth, and the mechanism of the train [is explored further] — just the little things that create a world, world specificity. During a panel at the 2017 Television Critics Association press tour, TNT boss Kevin Reilly teased a central mystery that would be the throughline in season 1, saying it would focus on characters stuck together in an intense environment in a game of survival. Diggs further touched on the class commentary featured in the series at the program s NYCC panel.“Anyone who’s from a marginalized community knows there’s a kind of togetherness that comes out of necessity, and a feeling of family and lack of lying from having to band together,” Diggs said. “So there are some good things, but no amenities. It’s pretty bleak; it’s hard to raise children with no resources. They’re dealing with truly extreme circumstances, so the idea that there’s something to fight for is pretty intense.”A SHOWRUNNER SHAKE-UP SLOWED EVERYTHING DOWN (Photo by Michael Kovac/Getty Images)A year after TNT ordered Snowpiercer to series, Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds) was brought on to run the show. Just weeks later, after production officially began, Friedman was replaced by Orphan Black co-creator Graeme Manson (pictu皇冠体育注册哈喽，朋友们大家好。传奇3重燃这款手游不知道大家有没有玩过，但是传奇3这款游戏大家应该都知道，这款手游就是按照端游的玩法，百分百复刻而来的，还原度非常的高，在这款手游中，使用端游的玩法也可以在这款游戏中畅玩。
WARNING: MASSIVE SPOILERS!The final chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe s Infinity Saga came to a close with Avengers: Endgame, and at just over three hours long, the movie not only tied up a bunch of loose ends, but also offered up a franchise s worth of fan service. Whether it was a reference (or two, or three) to an iconic 1980s teen adventure, a nod to the pages of the source material, the requisite Stan Lee cameo, or even one of the several callbacks to previous MCU movies, there was a little something in Endgame for everyone, from casual fans to hardcore comics geeks. Check out our video for every Easter Egg and fun fact we could piece together from the movie, and let us know what we missed!

Few shows have the ability to dangle Easter eggs over a fan base who already know, to some degree, how things end up more than Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul on AMC.But things are becoming particularly overly scrutinized now that Saul starts its fifth season on February 23, and AMC announced that season 6 will be the show’s last. As we prepare for the penultimate season of creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould’s backstory of how Bob Odenkirk’s Slippin’ Jimmy McGill went from being a regular con-artist who couldn’t keep his nose clean to the show’s titular shyster attorney, there are rampant fan theories not just about the character spent his final days before he came into contact with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul’s meth cooking duo Walter White and Jesse Pinkman – but what was going on with others involved in the criminal underbelly of Albuquerque, New Mexico.“I feel like this is the first season where we could really say, to all the Breaking Bad fans, This is the season you ve been waiting for, and to all the Better Call Saul fans, This is the payoff you ve been waiting for, ” Saul co-star Michael Mando told Rotten Tomatoes after he participated in a panel for the show at the winter Television Critics Association press tour.(Photo by James Minchin/AMC)Mando comes to Saul with a unique perspective. As opposed to other characters on the drama — such as Jonathan Banks’ permanently exasperated fixer Mike Ehrmantraut or Giancarlo Esposito’s Gus Fring, the fastidious small business owner participating in an extremely long revenge scheme — Mando’s laconic cartel lieutenant Ignacio “Nacho” Varga is not seen in Breaking Bad. Although his character is briefly referenced in the original series in a way that suggests he does make it out of Saul alive, Mando is mum to say more other than “this is Nacho’s biggest season, and he’s very heavily involved both at the beginning and at the end.”He specifically spoke of Nacho’s relationship with his father, Manuel (played by Juan Carlos Cantu). A working-class upholstery shop manager who just wants his son to stay out of trouble, Manuel has already had some dealings with Nacho’s business associations — and was not too pleased about it.“You really get to see how deeply Nacho loves his father in the third episode [of this season], and you really get to see how hard their relationship is,” Mando said, adding that “[Nacho] gets his heart broken in every direction. It’s like his stars are so dim, and everyone seems to break his heart, and I think his sanity is questioned at times. Someone’s got to care. Someone’s got to say this is wrong. I think it’s heartbreaking for a character to realize that maybe no one will — or, maybe Mike will.”(Photo by James Minchin/AMC)By “Mike,” he means Banks’ aforementioned gruff henchman – for whom Saul is as much an origin story, even if his name is not in the show’s title (“Are you talking about the animated series, Baby Mike?,” Banks joked during the show s TCA panel when asked if there could be more Bad-related spin-offs, given the success of this show and last year’s El Camino movie). A dirty cop with his own guilt over his derailed father-son relationship, Mike’s time on Saul has been a penance as he routinely gets his hands bloody out of an obligatory need to support his granddaughter and widowed daughter-in-law.“Mike doesn’t put much value on his own life,” Banks told Rotten Tomatoes in an interview after the TCA panel. “It’s not bravado. It’s just, in many ways, a beaten man.”Mike becomes a regular presence on Bad, but Banks deadpanned that it’s not a given that he’ll stick around Saul because “they could put him in a coma.” He added that, although much of his screen time on this show has been spent developing his relationship with Odenkirk’s character, “any time you spend with a human being, you learn more, you like them more, or dislike them more. And that does unfold to a greater extent with Jimmy’s and Mike’s [relationship].”Plus, he said, he’ll be creating the backstory for Mike “until the day I die,” reminding us both that the character spoke of his own rough childhood last season and that we’d previously learned that he was a sniper in Vietnam.“My opinion? Nobody comes back clean,” Banks said matter-of-factly of Mike’s veteran status.

Every great accomplishment begins with a small idea, something that sparks the imagination or inspires a flurry of creative impulses, but sometimes small ideas stay small ideas. They may get gussied up in the trappings of larger ideas, but they remain small ideas. That appears to be what happened with Countdown, a high-concept horror flick that asks and answers the question, What if there was a mobile phone app that could predict the exact moment of my death? Elizabeth Lail stars as Quinn, a young nurse who, along with her colleagues, downloads the titular app out of morbid curiosity after an unusual encounter with a patient and discovers, much to her chagrin, that she may only have days before her time is up. And what happens to those who attempt to side-step their digitally predestined fate? It still comes to pass, of course, albeit under spookier circumstances. Critics say Countdown is a derivative thriller that reinterprets familiar ideas into a just-different-enough hodgepodge of jump scares and unnecessary subplots in order to stretch its central conceit to feature length. That said, most also agree that Lail and co-star Jordan Calloway are both likable leads, and it s a fairly short run to the finish line, so if you re just looking to get the heart rate up for a little bit, it may do the trick.
Watch: Actor Andy Serkis on the making of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers above.In 2019, 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. In this special video series, we speak to the actors and filmmakers who made those moments happen, revealing behind-the-scenes details of how they came to be and diving deep into why they’ve stuck with us for so long. Once we’ve announced all 21, it will be up to you, the fans, to vote for which is the most memorable moment of all. In this episode of our ‘21 Most Memorable Moments’ series, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers actor Andy Serkis recalls auditioning for Peter Jackson, creating the sound of Gollum, and shooting the movie s most chilling scene. VOTE FOR THIS MOMENT IN OUR 21 MOST MEMORABLE MOVIE MOMENTS POLLTHE MOVIE: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) 95%The Two Towers was the film that proved Fellowship wasn t a fluke – that director Peter Jackson s Lord of the Rings trilogy was going to be a landmark event, with each entry equal to the last. It showed that Jackson and his fellow writers had the skill to match their gargantuan ambition. A year after Fellowship stunned moviegoers, the world once again joined a large collection of characters on their journeys across Middle-earth – Gandalf the (now) White, Sam and Frodo, Aragorn, and the rest – but it was one character, with two natures, who would steal the show. Andy Serkis s Gollum, only glimpsed in Fellowship, took center stage in The Two Towers, and Serkis s performance, along with the technology that made it possible, would change cinema for decades to come. Here, the actor remembers auditioning for the role – one he thought at the time was only going to involve his voice. Can you just get me a decent audition for one of the proper roles? “The way that the job had been explained to me was that they were making these films of The Lord of the Rings down in New Zealand and that they wanted a voice for a digital character. One of my first responses to my agent was, ‘Well, you know, I m not really a voice actor. Can you just get me a decent audition for one of the proper roles?’ When I found out it was Gollum it was like, ‘Wow, gosh, that s a really exciting character.’ I d read The Hobbit when I was at school and I remembered [Gollum] hugely from that. I was fortunate enough to witness my cat throwing up a fur ball It suddenly gave me this idea. 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. Andy Serkis in motion-capture suit while shooting The Two Towers. (Photo by New Line/courtesy Everett Collection) We are looking at this new technology called motion capture. “[My audition] was at the American [International] Church in Tottenham Court Road in London, and I d already done one audition on tape for Peter. I went inside, and down this long corridor there was this tiny little room. It was quite mysterious actually, and I remember sitting in that corridor waiting for my turn. Then I went down into the corridor, went into the room, and met Pete and Fran [Walsh]… They were saying to me, ‘You ll be on set and you ll be working with these guys, but finally you ll be manifested as a CG character; we are looking at this new technology called motion capture. It s in its early stages and we re not quite sure how it s going to work, and it ll be a cross between that and some animation.’ I said, ‘Look, the only way I can do this character is by acting it out, by actually playing it. I m not a voice actor as such. I ve never done that.’ I started to crawl around and get into character and go through the coughing-up-fur-ball voice and sort of getting into the scene, and played the tortured nature of Gollum. Pete was giggling away, and I thought, ‘OK.’ I think they were just really tickled by what I was doing. Pete was sort of crawling around too with his camera and filming it from various different angles and all sorts of different ways of shooting it.”Gollum as he appears in 2003 s The Return of the King. (Photo by @ New Line/courtesy Everett Collection) When I saw the first fully re-sculpted version of Gollum, it totally looked like my dad. Gradually they asked me to play the former role of Smeagol, before he becomes Gollum. Once that had happened, they decided to redesign the whole of Gollum s face just around my features. Then my performance was filmed on 35mm for every scene, and then the animators, using faders… would then match every single facial expression of mine. In fact, when I first saw the first fully re-sculpted version of Gollum, it absolutely, totally looked like my dad, which was kind of freaky and extraordinary and made sense really. Now I know what I m going to look like when I m you know, 22 years older.”THE MOMENT: Gollum and Smeagol TalkThe Two Towers packs its 179 minutes with a slew of memorable moments and sequences – chief among them the 40-minute-long climactic Battle of Helm s Deep, still considered by many the greatest battle committed to film. Yet it s the dialogue between Gollum and Smeagol, a tortured, moonlit exchange between both sides of the one soul, that lingers. The almost photo-realistic realization of the creature impresses, but it s the writing, sharp editing, and Serkis s performance that make it more than just a memorable evolution in film technology. Gollum is basically an addict or a Ring junkie. “The evolution of the character changed en route. Rather than it just being Gollum, we teased out the notion of Gollum as being this almost schizophrenic personality, and we pushed the voice in different directions. Working with Fran Walsh, and [co-writer] Philippa Boyens as well, we pushed the notion of Gollum being the more visceral, brutal kind of survivor character and Smeagol being the young, innocent sibling, if you like – abused sibling. I had to find for myself something tangible, something real, in the real world, so that the power of the Ring would resonate, and so for me it was really about addiction. Gollum is basically an addict or a Ring junkie. His physicality as such was very much based on someone suffering the terrible physical symptoms of a very strong addiction. It s tearing the body apart and tearing the mind apart, and the decrepitude of his body and the tortured, twisted, emaciated look was the externalizing of what was going on inside his mind and soul. Then Philippa and Fran pushed the writing to really embolden those ideas, and that was exemplified with the scene in The Two Towers where Gollum literally talks to himself. Andy Serkis as Gollum in The Return of the King (Photo by @ New Line/courtesy Everett Collection)“At that time we couldn t do on-set, physical motion capture I would have to go back onto a motion-capture stage. “At that time we couldn t do on-set, physical motion capture. That was something that s actually happened since. For instance, in the Apes movies that I was involved in, we had direct capture on set with motion-capture cameras in the trees – on location, capturing everything in one take. At that point, in the early stages, especially in The Two Towers, I would have to go back onto a motion-capture stage and repeat [the scene] a third time [after shooting it first with the other actors, then again reading lines out of frame with the other actors shooting it]. I would have to then do my performance again on my own in a motion-capture stage. We shot [the scene of Gollum and Smeagol talking] on a location, so the tree that he used and the rocks that he was sort of hiding behind and going either side of in the first few shots, that was all built. That was a real set, and we shot all that on a location, doing that two-part process. We constructed the whole scene like that, with the fallen log and Gollum eventually jumping down and spinning around with all the leaves and all of that being kicked up. It was maybe a month later that we went back into the motion-capture stage and we were able to refine that. Peter Jackson directing on the set of The Two Towers. (Photo by @ New Line/courtesy Everett Collection) You re not going to run out of film, you don t have to change lights, you don t have to do anything. You can just concentrate on performance. “There was rewriting. The thing is with Fran and Philippa and Pete, there s always a sort of constant rewriting of the script and evolving the script, and with every take they re looking for something new and something fresh in the moment. Also, from a writing point of view, once they ve shot something, they like to be able to go back in, and with performance capture you have that ability. That is one of the joyful things about performance capture: the ability to completely improvise and try something different, and keep going and keep going and exploring, without the pressure of being on a live-action film set. You re not going to run out of film, you don t have to change lights, you don t have to do anything. You can just concentrate on performance, which is an amazing thing.”THE IMPACT: An Unexpected Journey The Lord of the Rings trilogy would make almost billion worldwide, and its conclusion, The Return of the King, would win Best Picture at the Academy Awards (the two previous films were also nominated in the category, but neither won). The trilogy s impact on film, and studio decision-making, was huge: the 2000s saw a number of fantasy titles get the green light, Jackson would later return to Middle-earth with The Hobbit films, and viewers of TV smash Game of Thrones say its makers owe much to what Jackson and his team put into cinemas every December between 2001 and 2003. For Serkis, The Lord of the Rings was life-changing; he would become the go-to actor for performance-capture roles, starring in The Rise of the Planet of the Apes and its sequels as Caesar, as King Kong in Jackson s 2005 take on that classic story, and he would direct his own film, Mowgli, which would push technology to new places. With each step, the technology advanced and the wow-factor intensified – what remained constant was the strength of the Serkis performance driving it. If I lifted up my arm, Gollum would lift his. The first epiphany moment for me, where I realized how much I loved performance capture, or motion capture as it was at the time, was being on the motion-capture stage and seeing in real time: If I lifted up my arm, Gollum would lift his. I could see a gray-shaded model of Gollum lifting up his arm, and that for me cemented this affair, really, with the technology, and the realization of what it could actually do. It allows an actor to actually play anything. It opened up so many possibilities for me over the last two decades. Andy Serkis at the Two Towers premiere in New York City, December 2002. (Photo by @ New Line / courtesy Everett Collection) I could literally feel the audience leaning in, not quite sure what this was. Was this an actor? Was this a creature? I ll never forget [when I first saw the character on the big screen]. It was at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York; it was at the world premiere of The Two Towers. The movie just was so potent and powerful, with the halls of Helm s Deep. Politically where we were – it was just post-911 and there was this sense of doom, of just the world changing. The world seemed so fractured and dangerous and frightening, and seeing that film, it just felt so much like it was reflecting that in some way. It was a very potent experience; such an amazing experience seeing it with a live audience. I did have this extraordinary experience when [the scene with Gollum and Smeagol talking] came up. I could literally feel the audience leaning in and just, like, not quite sure what this was. They couldn t quite work it out. Was this an actor? Was this a creature? Literally people were leaning forward in their seats – it was like real hairs-on-the-back of the neck stuff, actually. Andy Serkis in motion-capture suit shooting The Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

All rights reserved/Courtesy Everett Collection) People either feel something very strongly about him, towards him, or they feel themselves to be like him in some way. That character for me defined a big, big turning point in my career, and opened up a huge world. You know, there isn t a single day that goes past when someone doesn t come up to me and talk to me about Gollum. I mean, it really is quite extraordinary. He s a beloved character, because I think everyone feels something for him. They either feel something very strongly about him, towards him, or they kind of feel themselves to be like him in some way. I think that s why people do respond to that character, that there is self-recognition in there – we re not all heroes, we are flawed.”The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers was released on December 18, 2002.

To kick off the start of our birthday celebrations, we ve gone and gathered up majorly fun facts and stats about RT that we ve accrued since 1998! (Note: All Tomatometer factoids are accurate up until February 26, 2019.)1. Total Number Of Reviews Featured on RT: 1,106,872 For Movies; 99,616 For TV(Photo by Walt Disney Co./courtesy Everett Collection)Last month, we hit the major million milestone for movies! It only took 21 years, eight office moves, and, conservatively, 50,000 cups of coffee. In 2013, we began collecting and adding TV and streaming reviews, and though we re still a ways away from hitting a million, we re hopeful that the legend of a trove of Law Order reviews buried in the Hollywood Hills proves true.2. Number of Tomatometers Generated: 25,688 For Movies, 1,625 For TVIt takes five reviews to generate an initial Tomatometer score for movies and TV shows. This has happened 27,313 times on Rotten Tomatoes, so far. Would you believe it never gets less thrilling?3. Average Tomatometer For All Movies: 62%(Photo by Columbia Pictures Television/courtesy Everett Collection)That number is proof that people generally do set out to make good movies – and succeed – or at least not make one that would get laughed out of theaters. And it s proof that critics come not with knives drawn, but with the hope that a discovery will be made that everyone needs to know about.4. Average Tomatometer For All Movies (With At Least 20 Reviews Each): 65%And the average percentage goes up if you add a 20-review minimum, suggesting that a movie that s generated enough interest to get rated professionally 20 times has something to warrant it getting that far. And why 20 reviews? That s the number when a movie becomes eligible for our patented, pithy Critics Consensus write-ups.5. Unlikely Celebrity Inspiration For Rotten Tomatoes: Jackie Chan(Photo by New Line/courtesy Everett Collection)Site creator Senh Duong was famously inspired to start Rotten Tomatoes in 1998 after searching for reviews of Jackie Chan movies which, like all reviews at the time, sat uncollected across disparate corners of the internet. Rumble in the Bronx had released nationwide in 1996, which got Duong looking for reviews of Chan s other imports: Supercop, Twin Dragons, and First Strike. Two years later, on August 18, 1998, Rotten Tomatoes went live.6. Unlikely Movie Inspiration For Rotten Tomatoes Name: LÃ©olo (1992) 90%The name Rotten Tomatoes came to Duong while watching the fantasy film Leolo, from 1992, about a boy who imagines himself to be the offspring of an Italian peasant and a giant tomato. It is, appropriately, Fresh.7. First Movie to Ever Get a Tomatometer: Your Friends & Neighbors (1998) 77%After the founding of RT, the first movie to officially get a Tomatometer was Your Friends Neighbors, Neil LaBute s modern tale of urbane immorality. It even went Certified Fresh, currently sitting at 77%! The critics consensus reads that though it may strike some viewers as cold and unpleasant, it s also an incisive critique of sexual politics wrapped up in scathing black comedy. Truly, a light and pleasant start to Rotten Tomatoes dominion.8. Oldest Movie With A Tomatometer: A Trip to the Moon (1902) 100%(Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)Georges Méliès little sci-fi epic, which generated cinema s first iconic image in The Man in the Moon with a rocket ship embedded in his right eye. Trip is 100% on the Tomatometer, but at nine reviews, it doesn t meet the 20-review threshold to be eligible for a critics consensus. Look, just give it another 117 years, will ya?9. Number of Certified Fresh Movies: 3,310; Number of Certified Fresh TV Seasons: 715The Certified Fresh label is the greatest designation on Rotten Tomatoes. We have 196,013 movies in our database, which means your movie has a historic 1.69% chance of becoming Certified Fresh. Meanwhile, there are a total of 14,333 listed TV seasons knocking around on the site, equaling a much-friendlier 5% chance of a TV season being Certified Fresh.10. Oldest Movie To Be Certified Fresh: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919) 99%What s it take to become Certified Fresh? For movies, it s having a 75% Tomatometer score after 40 reviews (or 80, if you re a modern wide release), with five of those coming from Top Critics. Caligari, with its gaunt German Expressionism theatrics, is the oldest movie to qualify for that prestigious designation, and is considered one best horror movies ever made to this day. (It s #2 on our list of the 150 Best Horror Movies.)11. Oldest TV Series With A Tomatometer: The Honeymooners: Lost Episodes 100%Are we detecting some kind of moon motif when it comes to these oldest milestones on Rotten Tomatoes? The Jackie Gleason classic show lasted only one season (or 39 episodes) but it s endured thanks to its assorted catchphrases and its historical significance as the first major depiction of the working class in sitcoms.12. Number of 100% Movies (With At Least 20 Reviews): 332You could watch nearly a different perfectly-rated movie every day for a year, taking in some stone-cold masterpieces like Citizen Kane, Seven Samurai, and Repulsion, and contemporary classics like Before Sunrise, Toy Story 2, and Leave No Trace. And at the rate these kinds of movies are cropping up, you could likely fill up a 365-day watching schedule by 2020.13. 100% Movie With The Most Reviews: Paddington 2 (2017) 99%(Photo by Warner Bros. / courtesy Everett Collection)The most lovable bear in all of cinema, at least until Annihlation came out. Just last year Paddington, this genteel beacon of hope in cynical times, and his movie usurped the best-reviewed crown from Toy Story 2, which had had the distinction since 1999. Lady Bird was also able to briefly do the same, before it was felled by its first Rotten review.14. Number of 99% Movies (With At Least 20 Reviews): 45So you just made a movie and it didn t hit 100%. After your feeling of debilitating failure leaves the body, would you be willing to accept the second-best percentage on the site? Members of the 99 Club include hunger-inducing Jiro Dreams of Sushi, indie breakthroughs (Lady Bird, Eighth Grade), something from Pixar (Finding Nemo), horror classics (Aliens, Rosemary s Baby), and Metropolis, whose sole Rotten review comes from a 1926 issue of Variety.15. Number of 60% Movies (With At Least 20 Reviews): 131Better not catch y all slippin , because one percentage point drop and these movies are in Rotten! Some movie fans may be shocked to learn which films the sword of Damocles hangs so perilously over, like Rush Hour or Mystery Men. Then there are other movies, like the primal and basic 300, for which a 60% feels juuuuust right.16. Number of 59% movies (With At Least 20 Reviews): 91So close to Freshness! Some 91 movies – with at least 20 reviews – are right on the cusp of being Fresh, which of course didn t stop the likes of Mr. Mrs. Smith and Oz the Great and Powerful from being boffo box office smashes. Included in this pile of barely Rotten movies are enduring 90s trash classics (Deep Blue Sea), literal trash (Trash Humpers), failed prestige pics (The Front Runner, Concussion), and of course a later-period Liam Neeson action movie (Run All Night).17. Number of 1% movies (With At Least 20 Reviews): 5(Photo by Freestyle Releasing/courtesy Everett Collection)Getting a Tomatometer score of 1% is probably the most difficult ignoble feat to achieve on Rotten Tomatoes. Not only do you have to get enough reviews for it to be mathematically possible, you have to count on only one or two critics willing to come forward to say they liked it. Let s give a hand to Alone in the Dark, Left Behind, Daddy Day Camp, Twisted, and Disaster Movie!18. Number of 0% Movies (With At Least 20 Reviews): 36It takes a lot of effort to make a movie. It takes a lot of effort to get critics to review it. And it takes a lot of effort for all of them to hate it. Jaws: The Revenge, Mac and Me, Bucky Larson shine on, you crazy diamonds.19. 0% Movie With The Most Reviews: Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever (2002) 0%The title doesn t make any sense and it only goes downhill from there. The incomprehensible spy-thriller starred Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu and came out in 2002, a year when their careers were peak enough that neither had any reason to make this movie. To date, 117 critics have been able to re-assemble their shattered minds after experiencing Ballistic to submit Rotten reviews. Meanwhile, back in 2017 we celebrated the movie s 15th anniversary with some cake:
Critics say Booksmart, the directorial debut from Olivia Wilde, could quickly join classics in the top of the class when it comes to high school movies. It s got breakout performances, smarts and laughs, and some memorable lines. But how well do Wilde and her stars know some of the most memorable lines from high school movies of the past? We put them to the test, asking them to recall which movies lines like This one time at band camp, Boo, you whore! , and I m not Josie Grossie anymore! are from. Who among the mammoth ensemble came out on top? Watch the video above to find out.Booksmart is in theaters May 24, 2019Like this?
