(Photo by © Warner Bros. )What was the bigger battle in 2016: The Dark Knight vs. the Man or Steel – or the Tomatometer vs. the Audience Score? On a little website called Rotten Tomatoes, those two competitions were pretty evenly matched when it came to a certain follow-up to Man of Steel.Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not the kind of movie people feel “meh” about. When it comes to this superhero smackdown from DC maestro Zack Snyder, you’re likely either all in or all the way out. (Don’t believe us? Ask a buddy what they feel about “Martha” next time you’re having beers.) That divide is represented in the scores for the film: BvS, as it’s now known, is Rotten at 29% on the Tomatometer – critics largely thought it was overwrought and over-long – but Fresh at 62% according to the Audience Score, with users loving the epic battles and the chance to see several of their favorite characters duking it out on the big screen. Both sides were pretty unanimous on Batfleck: He was awesome.Almost from the moment we announced our new podcast, Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong (A Podcast from Rotten Tomatoes), requests started flowing in for an episode on BvS. And so… our latest episode tackles Snyder’s brooding battle flick, digging into controversial casting decisions, its faithfulness to the comics, Snyder’s very particular style – and his ultimate edition of the film – and, yes, the Martha moment. Joining hosts Mark Ellis and Jacqueline Coley is someone who feels Rotten Tomatoes is very wrong about Batman v Superman: actor, host, and DC mega fan Mike Kalinowski. Will he convince us that the movie is a misunderstood masterpiece?

Two of Netflix’s biggest titles are returning this month for a summer binge — and that’s just the half of it! With the reboot of Veronica Mars on Hulu, the final season of Suits on USA, and Sarah Jessica Parker still charming away on HBO, there’s plenty to keep us busy in front of the small screen. Catch up on it all below.Divorce 78% (HBO)What it is: After reaching household-name status and everygirl envy on Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker makes her way back to prestige TV’s small screen with Divorce, where she stars as Frances, a middle-aged mother and beleaguered wife to Robert (Thomas Hayden Church), who, after having an affair, realizes they’d both be better off without having a ring on it.Why you should watch it: Parker has always been a fine actress, and she puts her well-practiced on-screen skill set to excellent use here, mining creator Sharon Horgan’s (Catastrophe) emotionally hefty and darkly humorous scripts with empathetic aplomb. Season 3 premieres July 1 on HBO.Where to watch it: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, HBONow, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 9 hours (for the first two seasons)Stranger Things 93% (Netflix)What it is: A dark mystery overtakes a rural Indiana town when the young Will Byers goes missing and a young girl with a shaved head and telekinetic abilities appears. Something sinister and supernatural has come out to play — and that’s just the pilot! So buckle up. Why you should watch it: It was the synth-laden soundtrack heard ’round the world three summers ago when Stranger Things dropped out of nowhere onto Netflix and took us all by storm. A back-to-form Winona Ryder, career-best David Harbour, and breakout stars by way of all its kids (but particularly Emmy nominee Millie Bobby Brown) are pitch-perfect and paired with plenty of ’80s-era horror nostalgia to make you want to watch this series again and again — and there ain’t nothin’ strange about it. Season 3 streams July 4 on Netflix.Where to watch it: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 17 hours (for the first two seasons)Harlots 97% (Hulu)What it is: Set in 1763 London, Hulu’s Harlots charts the lives of sex workers in two warring brothels, one led by Margaret (Samantha Morton) and the other by Lydia (Lesley Manville). The series, from creators Alison Newman and Moira Buffini, is a period drama inspired by the true-life accounts documented in The Covent Garden Ladies by Hallie Rubenhold, but don’t let its nonfictional nature bore you: Harlots is more juicy than dry.Why you should watch it: Harlots is so much more than a show about sex — in fact, that subject is met with less titillation and more sterile professionalism. It instead subs in rich and complex characters, mostly women, and a backdrop that allows for explorations of gender and class in 18th century England. Furthermore, Oscar nominees Morton and Manville get the chance here to showcase just why they’re both widely considered British acting royalty. Season 3 premieres July 10 on Hulu.Where to watch it: Amazon, HuluCommitment: Approx. 12 hours (for the first two seasons)Snowfall 87% (FX)What it is: Created by the late John Singleton, Eric Amadio, and Dave Andron (the latter of whom serves as showrunner), Snowfall follows in the footsteps of other FX dramas like Atlanta in that it tells the story of an ostracized community in ways that we haven’t seen before — this time by dramatizing the rise and breakout of the first crack epidemic in 1984 Los Angeles and its greater impact on American culture at large.Why you should watch it: As riveting as it is eye-opening, this street crime series pulls no punches in its portrayal of the drug trade and its implications in both micro and macro spheres. Startling performances from its ensemble of relative newcomers also bring us into a world that until now has been left off narrative television — and they keep a hold on us there. Season 3 premieres July 10 on FX.Where to watch it: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 15 hours (for the first two seasons)Grantchester 95% (PBS)What it is: Fans of period drama from the other side of the pond will have plenty to sink their teeth into with Grantchester. All is not as it seems in the series’ titular village, and clergyman Sidney Chambers (James Norton of the excellent Happy Valley) is caught in the middle, balancing his faith and obligatory duties while investigating a series of crimes in the area.Why you should watch it: Based on James Runcie’s book series and adapted for the screen by Daisy Coulam, this U.K. transfer from ITV has drama to spare. While at face value it may seem like the prim and proper British drama, underneath this clerical collar are festering secrets and dark pasts that bubble to the surface over the course of Grantchester’s hour-long episodes. Each season is only six installments, so there’s plenty of time to binge and catch up before season 4 premieres July 14 on PBS.Where to watch it: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 15 hours (for the first three seasons)Suits 90% (USA)What it is: Creator Aaron Korsh struck gold in 2011 with this popular legal drama — and it’s got nine acclaimed seasons to prove it! The premise is simple: Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is a law school dropout and brilliant fraudster who, upon impressing New York City’s top closer, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), lands a job as Harvey’s associate despite not having a license to practice law. But Mike proves that he’s up to snuff, and together he and Harvey work to keep his sordid past and illegitimacy a secret.Why you should watch it: Suits came into the international spotlight in recent years thanks to a new royal named Meghan Markle, but if that wasn’t reason enough for you to catch up on this USA Network affair, we’ve got a few more for you. The series works because it’s in on its own fun, and its high concept rags-to-riches premise rings true thanks to the chemistry of Adams and Macht. It’s a steep order to binge eight seasons, of course, but the show’s two charming leads and a formidable supporting cast have kept us coming back for more. Suits’ ninth and final season premieres July 17 on USA. (Fittingly, its new spin-off series, Pearson, also premieres that night on USA.)Where to watch it: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 94 hours (for the first eight seasons)Workin' Moms (Netflix)What it is: Creator and star Catherine Reitman plays the leader of a central group of friends and working moms as they make the transition from maternity leave back to office life.Why you should watch it: Being a mom is a full-time job paid in sleepless nights, dirty diapers, and, of course, unconditional love. Pair the laundry list of responsibilities that come with that job with a salaried 9-to-5, however, and tragic comedy is sure to ensue. That’s where Reitman comes in, translating it all for this semi-autobiographical sitcom. The Canadian series has already aired three seasons across the border; season 2 is finally making it to Netflix in the U.S. July 25.Where to watch it: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 6.5 hours (for the first season)Orange Is the New Black 90% (Netflix)What it is: Jenji Kohan’s runaway (but locked-up) Netflix hit is ensemble work at its finest, following the day-to-day lives of the ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary and exploring the diverse crimes that got them there.Why you should watch it: Inspired by Piper Kerman’s (here Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling) real-life account of her arrest and imprisonment for drug-related money laundering, this hour-long dramedy opens up to include the equally heartbreaking (and often humorous) biographies of fellow inmates played by Emmy winner Uzo Aduba, Laverne Cox, Danielle Brooks, Natasha Lyonne, Samira Wiley, and others. From season to season, Orange — revolutionary and acclaimed for its on-screen diversity — becomes more and more timely, tackling everything from trans rights to gender equality to Black Lives Matter. Its seventh and final season streams July 26 on Netflix.Where to watch it: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 68 hours (for the first six seasons)Veronica Mars 91% (Hulu)What it is: Set in the fictional town of Neptune, California, Veronica Mars follows the criminally charming Kristen Bell as our titular hero who cracks mounting mysteries as a high schooler and self-started private investigator.Why you should watch it: Veronica Mars is a CW cult classic from the early 2000s with an especially impassioned fanbase (its 2014 feature film was fully funded on Kickstarter) — and there’s no better time than now to see what all the hype is about. Its long-awaited fourth season returns July 26 on Hulu.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 48 hours (for the first three seasons)The Letdown 91% (Netflix)What it is: They say misery loves company, and The Letdown has that in spades, charting the ups and downs of being a first-time mother through the eyes of Audrey, a woman trying to keep her head above water while being more than “just a mom.”Why you should watch it: This Australian comedy from creators Alison Bell and Sarah Scheller (the former of whom also stars) finds the pitch-black humor in newborn motherhood with the richly dry humor and self-deprecation native to its home country. Season 2 streams in full July 31 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: About 3 hours (for the first season)Like this?

(EW)Development News: Empire Final Season Shortened by COVID-19 Shutdown(Photo by Michael Lavine/FOX)Fox’s Empire will end its sixth and final season two episodes sooner than it had planned, as the network will not finish its planned 20-episode production. Instead, episode 18, which airs on April 21, will serve as the series finale. Deadline reports the last episode may include footage from episode 19, which was being filmed when production was halted. The series had already had to edit its original series finale plans when Jussie Smollet was fired from the show in 2019. There has been talk of an Empire spin-off series revolving around Taraji P.

This week s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news (the stories about what movies Hollywood is working on for you next), covering such titles as Halloween Kills, the next Spider-Man, and the Treasure Island remake.This WEEK S TOP STORYJORDAN PEELE SIGNS AMBITIOUS NEW DEAL WITH UNIVERSAL PICTURES(Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Universal Pictures served as the distributor for both Jordan Peele s 2017 breakout psychological thriller Get Out (Certified Fresh at 98%) and this year s slasher film Us (Certified Fresh at 93%). This week, Universal solidified their relationship with Peele with a five-year deal with his Monkeypaw Productions that ensures they will release all of his films. This new deal includes two features that Peele himself will write and direct within those five years, but no details have been revealed about either. In addition to this new deal with Universal Pictures, Jordan Peele is also still producing The Twilight Zone for CBS, the upcoming series Lovecraft Country, and next summer s remake of Candyman (6/12/2020).Other Top Headlines1. THIS WEEK IN TOM HOLLAND: SPIDER-MAN 3 AND UNCHARTED FIND DIRECTORS(Photo by Jon Kopaloff/Getty Images)Last week s biggest news was all about the new deal between Disney and Sony for Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige to remain involved in future Spider-Man movies starring Tom Holland. That news, however, also broke on Friday afternoon, and the story continued to develop over the weekend after last week s Ketchup column ran. In the seven days since, that movie, and another Tom Holland project, both received updates. Jon Watts, who directed both Spider-Man: Homecoming (Certified Fresh at 92%) and this year s Spider-Man: Far from Home (Certified Fresh at 90%) is now in talks with Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures to return for a third installment (7/16/2021). It s not yet known which villain will appear in the next Spider-Man, but the final scenes of Far from Home suggest it could be a J. Jonah Jameson-related threat, like the Scorpion or the Spider-Slayer robots. In related news, it was also revealed that Tom Holland himself played an integral behind-the-scenes role in making the new deal possible. In addition to the third Spider-Man scheduled for the summer of 2021 (7/16/2021), Holland also remains attached to star in Sony s video game adaptation Uncharted (12/18/2020). That project has gone through a few directors now, but this week, we learned Travis Knight (Bumblebee, Kubo and the Two Strings) is now in talks to take it on.2. THE ORIGINAL HALLOWEEN NURSE RETURNING FOR 2020 S HALLOWEEN KILLS (Photo by Universal courtesy Everett Collection)Last year s soft reboot of Halloween (Certified Fresh at 79%) went a long way to disregard most of the sequels and establish itself as a direct follow-up to the original film, including the return of Jamie Lee Curtis but without the details established in later films. As the next two planned movies get closer to being filmed back to back (Halloween Kills on 10/16/2020 and Halloween Ends on 10/15/2021), the casting news has focused on the returns of other characters from the first movie, including the casting of Anthony Michael Hall as the adult Tommy Doyle, who was the kid Laurie Strode was originally babysitting. We can also now report that Nancy Stephens, who played Nurse Marion Chambers in the first Halloween, will also return for Halloween Kills. Nurse Marion had a crucial role in the original Halloween, as it was her car that Michael Myers stole as part of his escape from the Smith s Grove Sanitarium. (She also had a key role in Halloween 2, but these new films act like that movie never happened.)3. DISNEY ANIMATION DEVELOPING FOUR NEW PROJECTS AS PART OF NEW INITIATIVE (Photo by Walt Disney Studios)The next movie from Disney Animation Studios is going to be this December s sequel, Frozen II, but it appears that the studio s future will be mostly original stories for at least the next few years. (Having said that, the only confirmed title past Frozen II is next year s Raya and the Last Dragon, scheduled for 11/25/2020.) This week, Disney confirmed that they are now developing not one but four new animation projects as part of the studio s commitment to diversity and inclusion. The four directors now working on these untitled Disney Animation projects are Carlos Lopez Estrada (Blindspotting, Certified Fresh at 94%); Suzi Yoonessi (Unlovable, Fresh at 81%); Josie Trinidad (credited as a story writer on Zootopia); and Marc Smith (a longtime animator who worked on movies like Big Hero 6 and Zootopia). No premises have been revealed about these four projects, including whether any of them might be adapted from existing classic stories.4. CLINT EASTWOOD S RICHARD JEWELL TO BE RELEASED JUST SIX MONTHS AFTER FILMING STARTED (Photo by Keith Bernstein/Warner Bros.)Clint Eastwood is one of those directors who can get movies produced very quickly. This week s news, however, is one of the most surprising examples of his expediency. After a long development phase (which included a time when Jonah Hill might have starred, before his recent weight loss), Eastwood started filming Richard Jewell, about the 1996 bombing at the Atlanta Olympic Games, in June of this year. The start date was June 14, 2019, which is one day shy of six months before the December 13, 2019 release date that Warner Bros announced for the film this week. Paul Walter Hauser, who was arguably the breakout star of I, Tonya, will star as Richard Jewell when it s released, up against Jumanji: The Next Level and the remake of Black Christmas (which was also produced really quickly this year). Warner Bros. also released the first trailer for the film this week, which will be attached in many theaters to Joker.5. PIPPI LONGSTOCKING TO BE REBOOTED BY PADDINGTON PRODUCERS (Photo by ©G.G. Communications courtesy Everett Collection)Although Swedish author Astrid Lindgren s original Pippi Longstocking books were originally published from 1945 to 1948, the super strong female children s book character has had a decades-long legacy that has included multiple movies and TV shows. Having said that, the mainstream influence of Pippi Longstocking in the USA has been relatively thin for decades, and hasn t been updated for over 20 years. That appears likely to change relatively soon with the news this week that a new Pippi Longstocking movie is now being developed by the producers of Paddington (Certified Fresh at 97%) and its even better-received sequel (Certified Fresh at 100%).6. WONDER STORY TO BE CONTINUED WITH WORLD WAR II PREQUEL WHITE BIRD (Photo by Dale Robinette /© Lionsgate)Children s author R.J. Palacio had something of a runaway hit with her 2012 novel Wonder, which was then adapted in 2017 as a well-received live action movie (Certified Fresh at 85%) starring Jacob Tremblay and Julia Roberts. This week, Lionsgate picked up the feature film rights to Palacio s upcoming graphic novel called White Bird: A Wonder Story. That book will tell the World War II story of a young Jewish girl in Nazi-occupied France who would go on to become the grandmother of Julian, the central character of Wonder. It is not yet known if White Bird will be adapted as live action (like Wonder) or in animation in the style of the graphic novel.7. TREASURE ISLAND TO BE REBOOTED BY HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON DIRECTOR (Photo by Buena Vista Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)It was just last week that we learned that the Micronauts adaptation (6/4/2021) will be directed by Dean DeBlois, who spent most of the last ten years working on the various How to Train Your Dragon animated movies. Now that the How to Train Your Dragon franchise is finished, DeBlois agents are apparently working double-time to find him new projects, because there s another one this week. Universal Pictures and Mandeville Films (Beauty and the Beast, Warm Bodies) are now developing a new adaptation of the classic pirate novel Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, which was most famously adapted as a live-action Walt Disney film in 1950 (Fresh at 100%). Dean DeBlois is reportedly attached to direct the new film, which is being adapted by screenwriter Evan Spiliotopolous (co-writer of Beauty and the Beast and The Huntsman: Winter s War). With Micronauts already scheduled for 2021, Treasure Island will probably be released no sooner than 2022.8. SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK DIRECTOR SET FOR DRACULA SPINOFF (Photo by Columbia Pictures)For trivia fans, the Demeter has long been a little gem to keep in one s back pocket, as it is the name of the deserted ship on which Count Dracula sails to England from Transylvania in Bram Stoker s original 1897 novel. Fans of movie development news might also recognize that ship s name as part of Last Voyage of the Demeter, a long-in-development (since 2001) horror film about the on-board massacre as Dracula and his vampire cohorts killed the ship s sailors on their way to England. Basically, Last Voyage of the Demeter attempts to fill in one of the story beats that Bram Stoker left as an untold spooky side-story. We can now report that Norwegian director André Øvredal (Trollhunter, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark) is now in talks to direct The Last Voyage of the Demeter. At one point, Viggo Mortensen was attached to star in the film as the Demeter s captain, but it s not yet known if he is still attached nearly 10 years later.9. BORAT CO-WRITER WORKING ON HOME ALONE REBOOT FOR DISNEY+(Photo by 20th Century Fox)The growth and popularity of streaming services continue to pose an interesting challenge for how they re reported on (are they movies, are they TV, or are they something completely unrelated?), but when the streaming feature is intriguing enough, we still report on them here from time to time. Netflix is obviously the big player in this realm, but the Disney+ streaming app (which launches next month) is also looming out there with some very promising projects. In August, Disney CEO Bob Iger mentioned several potential Disney+ feature films, and this week, one of those was confirmed to be moving forward in development. Borat co-writer Dan Mazer is now working on adapting the original Home Alone (starring Macaulay Culkin) as a new children s feature film for the Disney+ streaming app. The reboot is expected to be a twist on the original premise, as the young boy will now be the thief who has stolen something from a married couple (and apparently, no adult thieves are involved this time around). It s not yet known who Disney will cast as the married couple.Like this? Subscribe to our newsletter and get more features, news, and guides in your inbox every week.
4. 呼朋唤友 随心所欲
This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as the remakes of Lilo Stitch, The Scorpion King, and Short Circuit.This WEEK S TOP STORYCRAZY RICH ASIANS DIRECTOR JOHN M. CHU TO HELM LIVE-ACTION LILO STITCH(Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection, (c)Walt Disney courtesy Everett Collection)Earlier this year (just a few months after Disney+ launched), the news broke that Disney s live-action remake of the 2002 animated hit Lilo Stitch ( Certified Fresh at 86%), which was first announced two years ago in 2018, was being developed as a Disney+ movie (a la Lady and the Tramp). Well, it appears that it might be considered for for a theatrical release after all. That s because the latest news on the remake is that Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians, Now You See Me 2) is now in talks with Walt Disney Pictures to direct the live-action Lilo Stitch. We should note immediately that the remake is more appropriately called a live-action/CGI hybrid, since Stitch (and the other alien characters) will almost certainly be computer-animated, while Lilo and her Hawaiian friends and family will be played by live-action talent. Jon M. Chu s next film as director will be the adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda s In the Heights, which is now scheduled for release on June 18, 2021 after being pushed back almost a full year by the COVID-19 pandemic.Other Top Headlines1. JEFF NICHOLS TO DIRECT A QUIET PLACE SPINOFF(Photo by Ben Rothstein/©Warner Bros.)If the COVID-19 pandemic had never happened, A Quiet Place Part II would have come out eight months ago (March 20, 2020) as of next Friday. Around that time, John Krasinski was quoted online as saying he had an idea for a third Quiet Place movie, but before that ever happens, it sounds like we re going to get something different in the form of a spinoff that expands the franchise s cinematic universe instead. Granted, this spinoff is also based on a story idea by John Krasinski, so it s quite possible that it s the same idea he talked about back in March. The third film is expected to expand the post-apocalyptic world in which human survivors are stalked by monsters with super-sensitive hearing. Krasinski directed the first two movies (and appeared in both along with his wife Emily Blunt), but the third film will be directed by Jeff Nichols, marking the first time he s worked on a franchise film after several of his own projects, including Mud (Certified Fresh at 97%), Midnight Special (Certified Fresh at 84%), and Loving (Certified Fresh at 89%). Paramount Pictures is reportedly aiming to release the third Quiet Place movie sometime in 2022. A Quiet Place Part II, starring Blunt, Cillian Murphy, and Djimon Hounsou, is currently scheduled for April 23, 2021, which is over a year after the sequel s original release date. Although no casting has been announced yet for this third Quiet Place, it s worth noting that Michael Shannon has starred (Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter, Midnight Special) or co-starred in every one of Jeff Nichols films so far, so it s reasonable to assume we might see him hiding from monsters soon, too.2. THIS WEEK IN CHRIS PRATT: THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER AND SAIGON BODYGUARDS(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)Chris Pratt wrapped filming this week on Jurassic World: Dominion (6/10/2022), and his name is already attached to two new movies. The higher profile project of the two is also the least surprising, especially for anyone who saw Avengers: Endgame, which ended with Chris Hemsworth s Thor going off into space with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Having said that, it s still of interest that Pratt will indeed be reuniting with another of Marvel s Chrises namely Hemsworth for Thor: Love and Thunder (2/11/2021). Perhaps the real news here is that we re only hearing about Chris Pratt, and not, say, Dave Bautista (Drax), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), and Karen Gillan (Nebula). In related news, James Gunn confirmed this week that he has finished the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 screenplay. Meanwhile, Pratt also signed on this week with Universal Pictures (the studio behind the Jurassic franchise) to co-star in Saigon Bodyguards (with Wolf Warrior star Wu Jing), which will be a remake of the 2016 Vietnamese action comedy of the same title, and which will be co-produced by frequent Marvel directors Joe and Anthony Russo.3. MADS MIKKELSEN MAY REPLACE JOHNNY DEPP IN FANTASTIC BEASTS 3(Photo by Jonathan Olley/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)In last week s Weekly Ketchup, we linked to a Collider piece that speculated about nine actors who could possibly replace Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald in the upcoming sequel Fantastic Beasts 3 (due out in theaters on July 15, 2022). Well, it would appear Collider was on the right track with one of their choices, as Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen is indeed reportedly now in talks to take over as Grindelwald in the sequel. Mikkelsen has been very prolific over the last decade or so, but most fans probably know him best either as the milky-eyed villain Le Chiffre in Casino Royale, Jyn Erso s dad in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, or the TV version of serial killer Hannibal Lecter. Filming of Fantastic Beasts 3 had already begun in London in September, so the role switch will necessitate some reshoots (Depp reportedly only shot one scene), which is presumably part of why the release date has been moved back from November 21, 2021 to July 15, 2022 (that, and the COVID-19 pandemic, probably). As for the why behind Depp s departure from the sequel, you can read more about that right here, and also in this piece, in which it s revealed that Johnny Depp will still receive his full salary as part of the deal for him to drop out.4. OPRAH WINFREY AND BRAD PITT TEAMING UP FOR TA-NEHISI COATES ADAPTATION (Photo by Bennett Raglin/Getty Images)Ta-Nehisi Coates is a multiple award-winning journalist-turned-author who has received a Genius Grant from the MacArthur Foundation, has worked for Marvel Comics on both Black Panther and Captain America, and whose first novel The Water Dancer was published last year. Now, Oprah Winfrey s Harpo Films and Brad Pitt s Plan B production companies are teaming with MGM for a film adaptation of The Water Dancer, which will be adapted from Coates own screenplay. Combining elements of magic realism, The Water Dancer tells the story of a pre-Civil-War slave who discovers he has a superpower he calls conduction that allows him to travel great distances, which he then uses as a member of the Underground Railroad. No director has been announced yet, but the wording of the Hollywood Reporter piece suggests that the job could go to producer Kamilah Forbes, who theatrically directed Coates Between the World and Me.5. BLACK PANTHER STAR DANAI GURIRA TO PLAY THE FIGHTING SHIRLEY CHISHOLM (Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)Back when Stephen Colbert played a political blowhard named Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report, one of his running gags in his Better Know a District segment was to always use the word Fighting (as in Wisconsin s Fighting Fifth District ). Colbert hardly invented that usage, but it was still so well used by him that it s one of the jokes that still resonates years later. In that spirit, one has to wonder if, in the near future, when Danai Gurira (Black Panther, The Walking Dead) inevitably appears on Colbert s CBS show to promote The Fighting Shirley Chisholm, he might bring back that exclamation. As the title suggests, Gurira will portray New York congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, who made history in 1968 as the first African American woman elected to the U.S. Congress, and in 1972 became the first African American candidate to run for a major party s nomination for President of the United States. It should be noted that this film will not be a traditional biopic, but will instead be a drama set specifically during Chisholm s 1972 run for president. Chisholm was also one of the lead characters in this year s Mrs. America mini-series, and the subject of the documentary Chisholm 72. Danai Gurira is taking over the role for Viola Davis, who had previously been attached to star.6. AIN T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH FOR SELENA GOMEZ (Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Singer and actress Selena Gomez has had a series of health issues over the last several years, including lupus and a kidney transplant, and for her newest film project, she will be taking on the story of a woman who similarly faced physical challenges. Selena Gomez is now attached to star as Peruvian mountaineer Silvia Vasquez-Lavado, who became the first Peruvian woman to summit Mount Everest and the first openly gay woman to complete the Seven Summits, a challenge to climb the highest mountain on each continent. The project is titled In the Shadow of the Mountain, and it will be directed by Elgin James (Little Birds, Mayans M.C.), who will also adapt the screenplay.7. BELOVED 1980S ROBOT COMEDY SHORT CIRCUIT TO GET LATINX REMAKE (Photo by (c)TriStar Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)The movies of the 1980s are routinely held in high regard, sometimes out of pure nostalgia, but let s be real here for a moment: not all of these films have aged especially well. Consider, for example, the 1986 science fiction comedy Short Circuit (Rotten at 59%), which is ostensibly a light-hearted adventure about a sweet robot named Johnny-5 until you remember that the film also featured Fisher Stevens in brown-face pretending to be an Indian scientist (something Aziz Ansari later talked to Stevens about). That said, Hollywood may soon get the chance to do the Short Circuit concept justice without the implied squirms that come from cultural appropriation, because Spyglass Media Group is now developing a Latinx remake of the film. The remake will be adapted by the writing team of Eduardo Cisneros (co-writer of Eugenio Derbez s Instructions Not Included, Rotten at 57%) and producer-turned-screenwriter Jason Shuman. It s not yet known what a Latinx remake of Short Circuit exactly means, or who will star in it, but one has to guess that given their connections, Eugenio Derbez may be one of the possible stars.8. JAKE GYLLENHAAL TO DRIVE MICHAEL BAY S AMBULANCE REMAKE (Photo by Anne Marie Fox/TM & ©Copyright Fox Searchlight)After spending much of the last decade working on various Transformers movies, Michael Bay made the transition last year to Netflix with 6 Underground (Rotten at 36%), and recently, we learned that his next film is likely to be a remake of the 2005 Danish thriller Ambulancen (which is easily discernable as Danish for Ambulance). New projects get announced all the time, some of which we never hear of again, but Ambulance very quickly made its next step through development this week as Jake Gyllenhaal is now in talks to star in Bay s Ambulance remake, which Univeral Pictures is also reportedly also in talks to distribute. The premise is reportedly being kept under wraps (which is a bit funny, considering the film is a remake), but it is being compared to the great action thrillers of the ’90s like Speed and Bay’s Bad Boys. 9. DWAYNE JOHNSON DEVELOPING A SCORPION KING REBOOT(Photo by (c)Universal courtesy Everett Collection)After five movies (six, if you include The Mummy Returns, Rotten at 47%), Universal Pictures is now developing a reboot of The Scorpion King, the mythological warrior-king who started as a Mummy spinoff. Dwayne Johnson didn t star as The Scorpion King in any of the sequels three different actors did: Michael Copon, Victor Webster, and Zach McGowan but his Seven Bucks Productions is partnering with Universal Pictures on this reboot. Universal is looking for a new actor to take over the title role, and the reboot is also not expected to tie into The Mummy in the way the character originally did in The Mummy Returns. It s also not yet known if Dwayne Johnson might join for a role other than that of The Scorpion King (maybe he could be the Brendan Fraser this time around?). The Mummy Returns was Dwayne Johnson s feature film acting debut, which is reportedly why he loves The Scorpion King so much, and is shepherding this remake. Although little is known about the new film at this point, one detail that has already been revealed is that, rather than being an adventure set in ancient times, the reboot will move the setting to modern times, which actually makes it more like Tom Cruise s The Mummy (Rotten at 16%) than the three Brendan Fraser movies, which were set in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, respectively. For the Scorpion King reboot, Universal Pictures has hired screenwriter Jonathan Herman, who received an Academy Award nomination for Universal s Straight Outta Compton (Certified Fresh at 89%), and who also worked with Universal on next year s F9 and the studio s upcoming remakes of Fear (Rotten at 46%) and Scarface (Certified Fresh at 82% ).On an Apple device?

(Photo by United Film Distribution, Universal, Weinstein Company / courtesy Everett Collection)All George A. Romero Movies Ranked by TomatometerGeorge A. Romero s first movie, Night of the Living Dead, released in 1968, walloped the country with its black-and-white dread and gore; infused with progressive casting and social commentary, it single-handedly created the modern-day zombie genre. His final movie Survival of the Dead, released 2009 and eight years before his death had, well, not quite the same impact, but discloses Romero s lifelong commitment to the zombie revolution he spearheaded. The movies he made in-between these two Deads represent a visionary s rocky but tenacious journey through the industry, frequently compromised or pigeonholed, but true to a drive to shake up the conventions of horror.Night of the Living Dead took the space-age hopes of a nation on the cusp of landing on the moon and cut it to ribbons, fashioning an ambiguous backstory of a downed space craft whose radiation transforms the freshly deceased into mindless flesh-hungry shamblers. Romero was keen to quickly climb out of the horror genre pit, releasing rom-com There s Always Vanilla in 1971, and then drama Season of the Witch in 73, whose distributor chopped out 40 minutes and marketed as softcore. Both films have gone little-seen since.With his talents apparently unwanted outside of horror, Romero returned to the genre and filled out the rest of the 70s with his best streak of movies: virus-based The Crazies, vampire deconstruction Martin, and the legendary Dawn of the Dead. With this Night of the Living Dead sequel, Romero took a maximalist approach: More social commentary, more characters, more action, and, of course, much more gore. The effects had people literally blowing their tops off. We call it the #1 zombie movie you must see.Dawn s success gave Romero enough cred to make one last go at it outside horror: Knightriders, a 2.5-hour personal drama about a troupe of Reniassance Faire-esque moto-performers. Romero, still one of the biggest names in horror even in the 80s age of the slasher, collaborated with the biggest name in literary horror, Stephen King, for anthology Creepshow. 1985 s Day of the Dead took aim at the human psychological breakdown that came with living in the undead post-apocalypse, concluding his ultimate at-the-time trilogy of zombie cinema.Romero then entered big studio production with Monkey Shines for Orion Pictures, which balked at the movie s initial long runtime, and were desperate for a hit. (They didn t get one.) He collaborated with Dario Argento for 1990 s Two Evil Eyes, each adapting Edgar Allan Poe, before making Dark Half for Orion, which was still desperate for a hit. (They still didn t get one.)It d be seven years before Romero s next film, Bruiser. And then five years after that for Land of the Dead, a highly credible return to zombie land after two decades away, working with his biggest budget ever. He would stay among the Dead for the rest of his career, following Land with found-footage reboot Diary of the Dead, shot in his native Pittsburgh area, where he set a majority of his films. Survival came out two years after that. And now, we pay tribute to the godfather of zombies by ranking all George A. Romero movies by Tomatometer!
(Photo by Andrew Macpherson / TM and Copyright © 20th Century Fox Film Corp. All rights reserved, Courtesy: Everett Collection) Everybody lies. As simple a statement as those two words are, they form the credo of Gregory House, the curmudgeonly antihero doctor who made Hugh Laurie a household name and central figure in House, Fox s highly successful medical procedural that ran from 2004 to 2012.House was not a likable guy. And yet, as much as the genius physician went out of his way to break rules, insult colleagues, put patients in danger, and feed into his own deeply troubled psyche — while masking his personal problems with a candy-popping Vicodin habit — there was an addictive quality in watching the man work. It s been 15 years since the show s premiere changed the face of medical dramas. Sure, the genre has continued to thrive on the small screen, but Gregory House MD was truly TV s last great doctor.His disruptive, manipulative nature intrigued us. He lured us in by flouting convention and putting his position and that of his colleagues in jeopardy, until finally that moment of epiphany promised by every episode locked us in and made us embrace this misunderstood medical madman.It s common knowledge that Dr. House was inspired, in part, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s Sherlock Holmes. Aside from the similarities in their last names and addresses — House lived at 221B which was a direct shout-out to Holmes residence on Baker Street — both men carried with them a distaste for the general public. Instead, they were driven by investigative motivations. Holmes was a detective out to solve the most dastardly bizarre crimes; House was a doctor by label, but at the character s core, he was a medical detective. The criminals he fought were every crazy infectious disease that crossed his path.(Photo by Larry Watson / © FOX / Courtesy Everett Collection)Tapping into the Sherlock Holmes mythos was a winning formula for show creator David Shore. Not only does the dynamic between the chaotic internal workings of the famous detective provide engaging entertainment when met with his external brilliance, Sherlock is an iconic figure who continues to be explored in a variety of television programs to this day — from BBC s cutting-edge Sherlock to CBS s detective procedural Elementary.But what if Sherlock Holmes worked in the medical field, a realm where a calming bedside manner and unrequited trust dictate an unspoken, yet expected, relationship between the doctor and the patient? House explored the answer to that question for eight seasons, and the deeper we dug into Gregory s complex character story, the more audiences stayed on the hook.As much as we loved to watch Dr. House exercise his biting wit and insulting personality to each and every person whose path he crossed, however, a glimpse of the misunderstood hero would randomly shine through his harsh exterior. His patients knew they were in good hands. House saw through the dishonesty of both the people he saved and the corporate overlords he served, while always searching for the ultimate truth buried inside every life-threatening riddle he and his team encountered.(Photo by Michael Becker / TM and Copyright © 20th Century Fox Film Corp. All rights reserved, Courtesy: Everett Collection)Of course, the man would have been nothing without the core group of physicians he turned to on a regular basis for support. From neurologist Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) and intensive care physician Dr. Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer) to immunologist Dr. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison) and Olivia Wilde s rebellious Thirteen, House regularly turned to others for assistance in solving the mysterious problem of the week. And that just adds to the character s allure. Because as much as his genius would regularly astound his colleagues and viewers alike, there was a very real theme of fail until you succeed that they faced on a daily basis.Dr. House was an antihero, but at the end of the day, he was still a hero. His goal was to fix the disease, not the patient. But when you add in the regular bits of failure that would enter into his professional and personal life — the ongoing will they/won t they between him and Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), for example — added a welcome layer of humanity to him. The average viewer may dream of being on the same intellectual playing field as the man, but seeing the faults in the star doctor suddenly gave us all someone we could relate to, as well.Dr. Gregory House didn t always get it right. The show had its fair share of episodes where, by the end, a patient s life was lost. As much as the medical procedural formula can be wrought with fairy-tale components that reassure viewers that everything will be all right, House always gave us a little wake-up call here and there, reminding us that fairy tales don t belong in the operating room.(Photo by Andrew Macpherson / TM and Copyright © 20th Century Fox Film Corp. All rights reserved, Courtesy: Everett Collection)It s been seven years since the program ended, and since then, a few networks have tried to fill the void Dr. House left. Some have come close, too. Take The Good Doctor, for instance: ABC s heartwarming medical drama was created by House s David Shore. The new drama, which stars Freddie Highmore as a doctor with autism, has achieved a fair share of success and was even called the inverted version of House by The AV Club s Alex McLevy.The era of the TV antihero has all but come and gone. The narrative pendulum has swung back into a territory ripe with feel-good stories. And as popular as the medical procedural genre continues to be, with the long-running soap opera drama of Grey s Anatomy, for one, providing small-screen comfort food to the masses, there s a wonder if another Dr. House will ever grace our screens again.Whatever misunderstood genius medical practitioner grabs our attention next will have some big shoes to fill, however. House the most popular TV doctor in the world, and Hugh Laurie was named the most-watched man on television by the Guinness Book of World Records. He may have been inspired by Sherlock Holmes, but Dr. Gregory House was one in a million.House is available to stream with an Amazon Prime subscription or to rent or own on FandangoNOW, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, and Microsoft Store.Like this?

The Fallen: Posters Confirm Shuri Did Not Survive the SnapWith the posters featuring lost characters in black and white, Marvel introduces a new term for those lost moments after the Snap – the Fallen. It’s a handy term, if one often used in supernatural films and television shows to categorize those who went to war against Heaven. But within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it boils down a mouthful into one word.The Fallen include headliners like Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), supporting characters like Bucky (Sebastian Stan), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), the entire Pym/Van Dyne family, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Additionally, all of the Guardians of the Galaxy except Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) were also lost in the Snap.(Photo by @ Marvel Studios, @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)The Fallen also includes three people featured on the new character posters who fell prior to Thanos s quick-fingered coup de grace: Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Vision (Paul Bettany), and Gamora (Zoe Saldana). The latter’s death was always significant as Thanos threw her off a cliff to get the Soul Stone – and presumably she will haunt him on his garden planet. Loki’s death, however, felt far from final as he cheats death all the time. Maybe he will be the first of the Fallen (heh) to return. And Vision? Well, he is going to be part of that Disney+ limited series with Scarlet Witch, so his resurrection also seems assured.The list of the Fallen has remained pretty consistent since last Spring, but the character posters finally confirmed Shuri (Letitia Wright) went into the dust with her brother. Many suspected this was the case when her photo appeared in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in the first Endgame trailer, leading to months of speculation. But with the poster, her death is confirmed. We imagine fans will need some time to process this.The Survivors: Valkyrie, Pepper Confirmed SurvivorsBy keeping the Fallen in black and white and the survivors in color, Marvel also confirmed a handful of characters whose status was unknown until Tuesday. Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Wong (Benedict Wong), Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) all survived the Snap. They join Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson), Okoye (Danai Gurira), Rocket, War Machine (Don Cheadle), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as those facing a universe with such terrible losses and determining a way to undo Thanos’s ultimate act.When we last saw Wong, he was headed back to the Sanctum Sanctorum to defend it should any members of the Black Order head there. Over the past year, we’ve joked that he made the smartest choice by high-tailing it out of the movie and it seems his decision proved to be a wise one. It remains to be seen how the Avengers may approach Wong or how his understanding of the mystic arts will aid them, but it’s safe to presume the survivors will tackle the Thanos problem from all angles – including ones they may have previously dismissed as so much hokum.(Photo by @ Marvel Studios, @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)Valkyrie, meanwhile, adds another number to the powerhouse squad with Thor, Carol, and the Hulk (should he decide to come out of hiding). When we last saw her, she was with Thor aboard the Asgardian refugee ship. Since she managed to survive both Thanos’s attack on the vessel and the Snap, we’re going to assume she helped the few remaining Asgardians – there are a few left, right? – find shelter. If that mission is complete, it is likely she will join Thor in a search for a solution. Or, knowing her, she took it upon herself to figure out some way of revenging after a few stiff drinks.Also, we imagine the already burgeoning corps of Valkyrie/Carol shippers are quaking at the possibility the two will share some screen time in Endgame.Considering Favreau’s decision to leave the creative aspects of the Marvel Universe behind, it is always nice to see Happy survive where other support characters have literally bitten the dust. Then again, we knew his long-term survival was assured thanks to his appearance in the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer. But since we’re assuming most of the Fallen will return during the events of Endgame, it was only a question of whether or not he was lost in the Snap. And while everyone assumed Pepper’s survival because of Tony’s message to her in both Endgame trailers, the poster is proof positive she is alive. You can bet she will pour as much of Stark Industries resources as she can muster into rebuilding the world and helping the Avengers.Others Whose Fates Are Still Unknown(Photo by @ Marvel Studios, @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)The posters also offer a reliable guess as to who among the Fallen we might see in Endgame – a Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) poster certainly suggests she will appear – but there are a few characters who are notable by their absence on posters and their still unknown status going into Endgame.As we always thought it was possible for Luis (Michael Peña) to knock out Thanos with one punch, his status intrigues us the most. Although, he is just one member of the Ant-Man family we want clarification on. Did Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson) survive? Considering online rumors insist an older, time-traveling Cassie will feature in Endgame, keeping her fate obscured may be part of Marvel’s plan. And what of Maggie (Judy Greer), Paxton (Bobby Cannavale), Kurt (David Dastmalchian), Dr. Foster (Laurence Fishburne), and Ava (Hannah John-Kamen)? Sure, they may not factor into Endgame beyond motivating Scott to make for the Avengers HQ, but clarity is always appreciated.Others unaccounted for include General Ross (William Hurt), Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), Peter’s classmates, Maria and Monica Rambeau (Lashana Lynch and Akira Akbar), and Howard the Duck.Of course, it still remains to be seen how the survivors will avenge the Fallen. But will they remain Fallen by the time Endgame concludes? Or will there be new Fallen to mourn?Like this?

Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino has been announced to helm a new Scarface, the gangland kingpin epic that has seen iterations in 1932 and 1982. Obviously, the latter Brian De Palma-directed, Al Pacino-starring version has had a monumental impact on pop culture and remains widely seen today.A new Scarface has long been in the works with multiple big names attached, including Diego Luna as star, and with significant script work by Joel and Ethan Coen. In its last known stage of development, the story was going to be set in Los Angeles. But considering Guadagnino s freewheeling take on Suspiria, who knows what elements he ll keep, or whether he ll have an entirely novel approach to the story. Will there still be a guy named Tony, and will he spell it with a Y ?But going off on its last known details, we ve questioned our followers on social platforms and took some staff suggestions, to create this poll: Who would you cast in the Scarface remake?

That is the eighth-best second weekend of all time, wedged between Disney’s 2017 Beauty and the Beast (.4 million) and, well, Disney’s Incredibles 2 (.34 million). Overall, the film has grossed 7.6 million in 10 days, which is the 15th-best ever for 10 days, between Captain America: Civil War (5.96 million) and The Dark Knight Rises (7.11 million). It is the 25th film to have grossed over 0 million in its first 10 days of release. Only three of those films (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Furious 7, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) failed to reach 0 million total. Amongst the 12 other films to have million-plus second weekends, only one of them (Avengers: Age of Ultron) failed to reach 0 million total. However, only two of those movies opened in the holiday season (Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar). Frozen II has already amassed another 1 million worldwide for a total of 8 million as it marches to become another billion grosser for Disney.Fresh Surprise: Knives Out Shows Original Films Can Still Murder At the Box Office It wasn t a total surprise for us at RT – we had placed it in the top 5 holiday earners in our winter box office preview – but Rian Johnson’s Knives Out surpassed all tracking service expectations by earning .7 million since opening Wednesday. The .7 million it earned over the weekend puts it amongst the top 20 Thanksgiving holiday weekends ever – and it is just the fifth film not rated “G” or “PG” to be on that list. Some 61 films have opened in November and grossed over million in their first five days; only four (Pokemon: The First Movie, Dumb and Dumber To, The Muppets, and Unbreakable) failed to reach at least 0 million total. That means Knives Out could join Hustlers, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Us as the only films not based on a previous film or property to reach that milestone in 2019.The Top 10 and Beyond: Queen and Slim Gets a Solid Start, Word-of-Mouth Boosts Beautiful Day(Photo by © Universal)It was back and forth over the holiday for third place, but James Mangold’s Ford v Ferrari won the race with .22 million over the weekend and .99 million for the five days. No film opening in November to have grossed at least million in 17 days has failed to reach 0 million. Ford v Ferrari currently stands at million, but its magic number is still going to be around 0 million globally to find its way into profit. With just over 3 million internationally, it is still less than 60% of the way there.Marielle Heller’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood got the word-of-mouth bump over the holiday we were expecting. It is now outpacing Roland Emmerich’s Midway, which just passed the million mark this weekend. Gothika, Starship Troopers, and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms are the only November films to have million after 10 days and not finish with at least million. Midway is looking to join that list given its third weekend (.95 million) was less than what those three films earned in their third weekend. Meanwhile, the Mr. Rogers film, which stands at just over million to date, had a better second weekend (.8 million) than any live-action film in November to have million or less by day 10 of wide release (aside from Jingle All the Way). This suggests that a final gross over million is still very possible for the million-budgeted film.The other newbie of the week was Melina Matsoukas’s Certified Fresh Queen Slim, which grossed .7 million over the weekend and .8 million over the full holiday. That is 0,000 more than what Widows had last year in its first five days before ultimately finishing with million. Last week’s cop thriller, 21 Bridges, is up to just .45 million after 10 days, which puts it in After the Sunset/Delivery Man territory. Its second weekend (.82 million) was about million less than the Vince Vaughn comedy and 21 Bridges may be up at around just - million when it leaves theaters. Finally, Todd Phillips’ Joker spent its eighth straight week in the top 10. It has passed 0 million domestic, .048 billion worldwide, and is Warner Bros. fourth-highest grossing film of all time. Joker also passed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides to become the 35th highest-grossing film of all time.This Time Last Year: Another Possession Could Not Scare Ralph From Top Spot(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)It was the weekend after Thanksgiving so grosses were down a bit, but still a lot of people were going to the movies. The only major new release was The Possession of Hannah Grace, which opened in seventh place with .4 million. Ralph Breaks the Internet was again on top with .56 million, passing the 0 million mark. The Grinch moved up to second with .92 million, enough to pass the 0 million line. Creed II fell back to third with .63 million and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald had the steepest fall in the top 10 (61.3%) to .36 million. The top 10 films grossed a total of 6.19 million and averaged 61.4% on the Tomatometer; this year’s top 10 grossed an estimated 6.98 million over the weekend and averaged 67.3% with critics.On the Vine: A Balloon Adventure and an Acclaimed Romance Set to Light Up Indie Box OfficeThe weekend after Thanksgiving is usually a dead zone for new releases and indeed only one film is going wide and that is the oft-delayed animated film from STX, Playmobil: The Movie. The million production was moved from January to April to August and then into December. It has grossed just .4 million in international waters to date, and may have trouble matching that here.
