Daniel Radcliffe may never in his lifetime escape questions about his most-famous role: Harry Potter. Fortunately, the star doesn t mind fielding fan queries, including those from Potterhead colleagues and the occasional journalist.Radcliffe s Miracle Workers costar Karan Soni, who plays Sanjay, was the biggest Potterhead on the cast, Radcliffe revealed, and he was happy to indulge Soni.“I think there’s like an expectation that I will hate talking about it, which I really don’t particularly,” Radcliffe told Rotten Tomatoes.Radcliffe now stars in surreal TBS comedy Miracle Workers, which presents Heaven, Inc. as a regular office grind where employees try to answer prayers every day. God (Steve Buscemi) is over it and decides one day that he’s going to blow up the Earth.(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Angels Craig (Radcliffe) and Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) convince God to give them a chance to prove humans are worth preserving. If they can perform one miracle in two weeks, God will let the Earth live. The prayer they’ve chosen to answer: Help Sam (Jon Bass) and Laura (Sasha Compere) fall in love.The angels can’t directly interfere with Sam and Laura. They can just set things up and hope they work. It’s like a game of Sims with real people.“They’re a lot more caring with them than I was with my Sims,” Radcliffe said. “I killed my Sims accidentally. I put the fridge the wrong way around and didn’t realize.”Viswanathan confessed to even more sadistic Sim abuse.“I used to take the ladder out of the pool and just watch them suffer,” she said of her Sims abuse, which shocked her costar.“That’s you killing them!” Radcliffe objected. “I accidentally made my guy die. That’s a murder.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Heaven, Inc.’s interference on the show also has collateral damage. Obstacles they throw in Sam and Laura’s path may have deadlier impacts on completely innocent bystanders.“It does, but it is all for the goal of saving the entire world,” Radcliffe said in defense of the angels. “We’re in a world where virtually anything can be justified in order to save the existence of the species as a whole.”Miracle Workers is a dark comedy that way, but it’s ultimately optimistic.“There’s a through-line of hope even when it’s really messed up and extremely dark,” Viswanathan said. “They’re just sticking together and believing in something and going for it. That’s very much the ethos of the show.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Miracle Workers showcases Radcliffe’s comedic side. He has had funny cameos in films like Trainwreck and shows like Bojack Horseman, and he even played a farting corpse in 2016 film Swiss Army Man opposite Paul Dano.“I’ve always loved doing comedy,” Radcliffe said. “I think I’ve done a fair amount that certain people have seen. Swiss Army Man is a fairly niche film. The stage shows I’ve done have actually mostly been comedy in some way. I love it. It’s a very lovely thing, particularly on a set like this where you just have to go to set and try and be stupid every day and make people laugh.”And Miracle Workers can be gloriously stupid. One joke is just about how to pronounce “gyro.” Most foodies know it sounds like “yee-ro,” not like a gyroscope.“I thought it was ‘gyro’ as well, but my girlfriend — near where Erin grew up is a huge Middle Eastern community — and she was like, ‘No, it’s yee-ro,” Radcliffe said.(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)If Miracle Workers is a hit, there will be a second season, but it won’t be about the same angels. Creator Simon Rich’s plan is to make Miracle Workers an anthology series.“The idea would be to reset it in a different time, place, characters — sort of to do for comedy what American Horror Story is for horror,” Radcliffe said. “Once you’ve saved the world, it’s hard to find where to go from there for the second series, I think.”Whether or not that means season 1 ends with a miracle or we all die, it will be a definitive ending.“The opportunity TBS gave him to do was to do a totally self-contained season so you didn’t have to, as a writer, write an open-ended ending which may or may not go onto something in season 2,” Radcliffe said of Rich s deal. “Essentially they let us make a three-hour film with commercials.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Returning to our Potter obsession (and Radcliffe s patient accommodation), we related that when his Potter costar Rupert Grint spoke to us for Snatch season 2, he said it was weird for him to watch another actor play Ron Weasley in the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Radcliffe hasn’t seen the play yet, but not because of another actor playing Harry.“I think I would find it weirder just sitting in the audience and know that people were probably looking at what my reaction to the thing was,” Radcliffe said. “That’s kind of the reason I haven’t gone.”It’s hard to believe that it has been eight years since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Radcliffe has had a whole career since then, but he’ll always be Harry Potter.“It’s still a big part of my life, but I’ve gotten to go on and do loads of other things,” Radcliffe said. “I’m very happy with how it’s all gone. If you told me at the time that I was going to be sitting here eight years later talking about this amazing, weird series that I love, I’d be very, very happy with that sort of thing.”Most actors don’t get one or the other. Radcliffe considers himself blessed to have both.“I don’t think the idea of me always being known as Harry Potter and the idea of me just being an actor who does lots of stuff are mutually exclusive,” Radcliffe said. “I think they can both be true. So far they have been so fingers crossed.”Miracle Workers premieres Tuesday, February 12 at 10:30 p.m. on TBS. The premiere is available for viewing now at TBS.com. 实际上，《英雄联盟》手游保留了很多英雄联盟PC版本的东西，虽然一局游戏基本在15分钟之内，但同时游戏内足够的竞技性也对玩家的操作提出了更高的要求，无论是对线期，补刀，还是团战，都比较考验操作和技术，对于游戏意识的要求也更加明显。

Alita: Battle Angel (2019) 61% Rating: PG-13, for sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for some language.It may look colorful and lively, and the main character may seem inviting with her wide, inquisitive eyes. But Alita: Battle Angel is really quite violent and not meant for young viewers. Fans of the manga series that inspired the movie probably won’t be surprised to learn that. And granted, much of the graphic violence happens to cyborgs who bleed blue, but still – they’re imbued with human characteristics, and we’re meant to care about them as such. So when they get stabbed or sliced in half or dismembered entirely, the imagery can be shocking. The visual effects and elaborate action sequences in the film from director Robert Rodriguez and writer-producer James Cameron are really the main reason to see Alita – that, and the game, physical performance from Rosa Salazar as the title character. She’s an abandoned cyborg whom a doctor (Christoph Waltz) brings back to life in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic society. But she can’t remember who she was; she only knows she has formidable warrior instincts and abilities that make her both powerful and a target. Alita also takes part in a Rollerball-type game that’s fast-paced and treacherous. She’s basically in constant peril. Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, and Jackie Earle Haley are among the impressive supporting cast. I didn’t bring my 9-year-old son with me to the Alita screening I attended, and I was glad afterward. It’s a big, mindless spectacle, but it really earns its PG-13 rating.

From its humble beginnings at the U.S. Grant Hotel to the modern, sprawling celebration of all things nerdy across the city, Comic-Con International: San Diego (originally San Diego s Golden Star Comic-Con) is an annual tradition many plan their entire year around. It is a convention like no other – some would say to its detriment – as film, television, games, and even comics bring their top talent and offer exclusive first looks at upcoming products. But more than being a giant pop-up shopping mall, Comic-Con is an experience filled with unexpected moments.The show is celebrating its 50th year this week and we could not help but be nostalgic about its past and some of the biggest moments in its wild history. Or, at least, the biggest moments in regard to the convention s relationship with film and television. Though there was always a media presence at the show, it really solidified its power in the 1990s, becoming a driving force in the new century. Naturally, though, the connection between comic books and other media will permeate this list as there would be no Comic-Con experiences without them. With that in mind, these are the 21 Comic-Con moments we remember most from 50 years of an awesome con.21. The San Diego Convention Center Expands And Hall H DebutsComic-Con first moved to the San Diego Convention Center in 1991. At the time, it comprised halls A-C. After the Convention Center expanded in the early part of the century, the show moved into hall D in 2001 and halls E-G the next year. The added space allowed media companies to put out big displays – like the Time Machine prop from the 2002 remake and an early Masters of the Universe toy revival – while leaving halls A-C as the domain of comics and collectables traders. The completed 2002 expansion gave us the current size of the exhibition floor, but 2004 would prove to be one of the most important years in terms of the convention s overall size with the debut of Hall H. At the time, it was just a 6,000-seat event space, but it would soon become one of the keys area of the entire venue.20. The X-Men Panel Gets Pulled At The Last MomentIn 1999, studios were still getting their footing in bringing talent to Comic-Con in an organized way. In the case of 20th Century Fox, this meant bringing some footage from their upcoming X-Men feature to Room 6AB (the Hall H of its day) along with director Bryan Singer and producer Lauren Shuler Donner. The room was full of excited fans, but after a brief shot of the White House on the projection screen, a Comic-Con staffer announced the panel had been canceled. This was before Singer’s alleged improprieties became public, but it may be an example of his legendary tardiness. It also highlights how recently the convention became a highly regimented publicity machine. Cancelling a panel after its scheduled start time would never happen today.19. Flynn’s Arcade Reopens(Photo by Michael Buckner/Getty Images)Off-site activations made it possible for those not going to Comic-Con to still enjoy some of the fun. And in a number of ways, 2009 s Flynn’s Arcade – a promotion for the then-upcoming Tron: Legacy – set the tone for the most successful pop-ups. Designed to recreate the arcade from the original Tron film, guests could play classic arcade games like Galaga before the Tron arcade cabinet lit up, revealing a whole new area of the exhibit. Inside, guests saw concept sketches for the film and a full-scale lightcycle prop. They also walked away from the hip event with Flynn’s Arcade t-shirts and a memory of something genuinely unexpected from Comic-Con. The immersiveness and quality freebies of Flynn s Arcade continue to influence activations, such as 2017 s Blade Runner 2049 experience.18. Hellboy Debuts In San Diego Comic-Con Comics #2 (1993)For a time, Comic-Con published a free comic book in association with Dark Horse Comics. The second yearly issue featured Mike Mignola’s first sketch of Hellboy. The character was mostly formed, even if his dark destiny and the BPRD were still a year or so from debuting in the pages of Dark Horse s first Hellboy series, which would eventually become the basis for Guillermo del Toro s 2004 Hellboy feature film. The character’s debut, however, illustrates how big Comic-Con things can happen literally in the pages of a comic book.17. Bryan Cranston Roams The Exhibit Floor As Walter WhiteSetting off a tradition of sorts – though there were some precursors – Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston surprised fans in 2013 when he revealed he was roaming the exhibition floor ahead of his panel dressed as the show s lead character, Walter White. Decked out in khakis and a plaid shirt, Cranston completed his disguise with a disturbingly life-like pull-over mask of his own face. Since he had a video crew with him, you would think more people would’ve guessed what was happening, but he correctly surmised most con-goers would assume it was a YouTube thing. Since that time, plenty of stars have used disguises to get some shopping done or experience the crowd. But few have pulled it off with such panache. Well, except maybe Matt Smith and his use of a Bart Simpson mask during the same convention.16. Lost Finds Early FansIf there was one hot topic following the 2004 Comic-Con, it was the screening of the Lost pilot. In an early attempt to bring a wider cross-section of genre shows to Comic-Con, ABC screened the first episode to a crowd of people vaguely aware of J.J. Abrams and/or Matthew Fox. It started a buzz which led the early adopters to make Lost one of the greatest Comic-Con success stories thanks to their talk of polar bears and potential dinosaurs. Granted, the dinosaurs turned out to be Jacob in the end. This was the moment television really took hold at Comic-Con, a mutually beneficial relationship which continues to this day.15. The Star Wars: Force Awakens Concert(Photo by Michael Buckner/Getty Images )A more recent big moment came during the 2015 Comic-Con when Abrams made a triumphant return to the show as the director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While he played coy about plot details with the panel moderator, he wowed the Hall H audience by inviting them to a concert of Star Wars music performed by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. Most of the 6,000 attendees (with lightsabers in hand) followed Abrams to a nearby concert stage on one of the jetties behind the convention center. But anyone still inside Comic-Con for Friday night programming – like, say, the Klingon Lifestyles Presentation – could still hear the event and the fireworks following the performance.14. Quentin Tarantino Misses The Kill Bill PanelIn 2003, Quentin Tarantino planned to regale fans with tales of his then-upcoming Kill Bill. His old pal Michael Madsen would be with him and they would show the audience assembled in Ballroom 20 the trailer for Volume 1. But one thing Tarantino did not plan for was an accident on the southbound Interstate 5 Highway earlier that day involving a truck filled with fiberglass insulation. It took hours to clean up and Tarantino missed the panel entirely, leaving a bewildered Madsen to answer questions from the audience. Over the years, the southbound I-5 has bedeviled con-goers thanks to exotic spills of crude oil, mattresses, and even meat formerly ready for store shelves. This moment is in honor of all the people who brave the roadways to get to Comic-Con. Tarantino, meanwhile, made sure to book extra travel time for subsequent Comic-Con panels promoting Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.13. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Takes Over Both Hiltons, Hall H, And The Balboa TheaterWhile Flynn’s Arcade may be the most memorable off-site activation, Universal’s 2009 domination of Comic-Con to promote Scott Pilgrim vs. The World may be the biggest film rollout ever executed at the event. Utilizing exhibit space next to the Hilton Gaslamp, the pop-up offered a look at the film, a really awkward standee of star Michael Cera, and a bar where fans could get custom-made t-shirts. There was even ice cream at certain parts of the day. The movie poster was painted onto the tower of the nearby Hilton Bayfront and, in a show of strength, the studio arranged for the film to be screened over three evenings at the Balboa Theater up the road – though the first night was a surprise for all those who attended the Hall H panel. Considering the film’s origins and tone, Comic-Con was its key market and the studio made a tremendous effort to treat con-goers like royalty. The film itself may have faded from the public consciousness, but Universal s attempt to court the Comic-Con crowd will always be remembered.12. Kevin Feige Suggests Movie CrossoversThankfully, video exists of a 2006 Marvel Studios panel in which Kevin Feige was asked about a potential crossover between its characters. This was still before any of the grand designs were known beyond the planned films based on Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, and Thor. Nonetheless, Feige offered this response: There s no coincidence that that may, someday, equal the Avengers. Having that possibility on the horizon is something that excites all of us.” Little did anyone know at the time that it would all become a reality, although those in attendance cheered at the mere suggestion. In hindsight, his stumbling through the response suggests he knew he was giving the game away. It would be the last time Feige would ever offer such a straightforward answer in public.11. The Dark Knight Orchestrates A Joker Scavenger Hunt(Photo by © Warner Bros. Pictures)The Dark Knight’s marketing campaign was one for the ages with Harvey Dent rallies and fans getting phone calls to see the first nine minutes of the film. But one of the best stunts involved a scavenger hunt across San Diego’s Gaslamp district. Clues were literally written in the sky and handed out by people in Joker attire – the alleged perpetrator of the scavenger hunt. In the end, participants were awarded a link to The Dark Knight s online teaser, but for those ordered by the Joker to adopt his signature make-up, it was one of the best Comic-Con publicity stunts ever executed.10. Harrison Ford Escorted To The Stage In HandcuffsIn another case of best laid plans going awry, Harrison Ford’s first Comic-Con appearance was overshadowed by one of the most infamous moments to ever occur in Hall H. Shortly before Ford’s panel – a promotion for the in-production Cowboys and Aliens – was set to start, an argument over a seat at the back of Hall H turned into a violent scene with one man stabbing another in the eye with a pen-knife. The hall was locked down and programming delayed while San Diego police rushed in. The perpetrator was taken into the custody, the victim went to the hospital, and when the panel finally began, director Jon Favreau and Ford went ahead with a joke they planned long before the incident – Ford came onto stage in handcuffs and escorted by security. The idea: Ford had to be dragged from the set to make his first Comic-Con appearance. But thanks to the stabbing, the moment read in a very different light. It also eased the brewing tension in the hall that night.9. Ryan Reynolds Recites The Green Lantern OathThe 2011 Green Lantern film is little more than a punchline star Ryan Reynolds uses in other, better comic book movies. But before the film s fate was decided, it had its Comic-Con moment during a 2010 Hall H presentation when a little boy asked Reynolds what it felt like to recite the Green Lantern oath. After taking a moment compose himself, Reynolds said, it sounds a little something like this and recited the oath from memory. The boy, visibly moved by the performance, showed Reynolds his child-sized Green Lantern ring. The actor responded by showing off its big budget movie counterpart. Over the years, questions from children have led to man memorable moments, but few are as pure as this.8. Zack Snyder Shares A Dark Knight Moment From Batman v Superman(Photo by Albert L. Ortega/Getty Images)Back before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice divided online fandom, director Zack Snyder was happy to share a first look with fans in Hall H during the 2016 Warner Bros. Pictures presentation. The scene featured Ben Affleck’s Batman in an armored suit ready to go 10 rounds with the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill). The scene, heavily influenced by a similar sequence in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns suggested a certain tone for the movie and a wish-fulfillment for the director. And for those in attendance, it sparked a hope about DC’s film universe which never quite came to fruition. But in that moment, all things seemed possible.7. The Ravagers Invade Marvel Studios 2015 PanelBefore we knew how important Taserface (Chris Sullivan) would be to the shape of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – a recurring punchline – Marvel brought Sullivan, along with the rest of the Ravagers, to the Hall H stage in full makeup. Emerging from the back of the hall, the group played at harassing fans and mocked the panel moderator from afar. When they finally made their way to the dais, Sullivan and Sean Gunn answered questions as Taserface and Kraglin in a routine far funnier than it had any right to be. In a presentation which featured the debut of the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming and Brie Larson’s first public appearance as a MCU cast member, it stands as the most delightful moment of that year, thanks mainly to Sullivan’s dedication as Taserface.6. The Iron Man TrailerBeginning a tradition which continues to this year – with a few pauses along the way – Marvel Studios brought its first clip to Comic-Con in 2007: a four minute version of the first Iron Man trailer. Extending some of the scenes in which Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) built his first suit in a cave with a box of scraps, the silence among the crowd (punctuated along with a few laughs thanks to Tony s quipping) lingers today as the palpable sense that this movie was different. The audience finally exploded into cheers when the Mark I Iron Man suit made its debut, confirming this was the film almost every comic book fan was waiting for. The intensity only grew as the trailer revealed the Mark III suit and Iron Man flying with an escort of fighter jets. An auspicious beginning to the studio s near-dominance of the convention in the years to come.5. Andrew Garfield Cosplays As Spider-Man To Crash A Panel(Photo by Wendy Redfern/Redferns/Getty Images)Hall H Q A sessions are known for awkward questions, the Button Lady, and the Hunter S. Thompson impersonator. But the single best Q A moment ever came in 2011 when The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield crashed the panel in a cheap Spider-Man costume complete with mask and a fanny pack. Playing the part of an eager fan, he told the crowd it was his dream to be in Hall H – as Spider-Man – with the cast and crew of the new Spider-Man movie. Then, he pulled off the mask to stun the audience. “I always wanted to come here as a fan,” he said after the reveal. “So here I am, as a fan.” But perhaps more affecting was his nervousness as he read a prepared statement about what Spider-Man meant to him. Beyond being a great Comic-Con moment, it may be the best moment in the whole Amazing Spider-Man endeavor.4. Loki Addresses The Hall H AudienceBut a few years later, Garfield’s moment would be superseded by the first of Marvel Studios in-character appearances. With the Hall H lights dimmed, the voice of Tom Hiddleston boomed, “Look how far you’ve fallen.” The cheers quickly rose as fans realized what was happening. And with a flash, Hiddleston was on stage in costume and in character as Loki. Proceeding to give a speech similar to the one in Marvel’s The Avengers, the God of Mischief commanded the Hall H crowd to swear their loyalty to him. In exchange, they would “feast” their eyes on Marvel Studios’ 2013 offerings. The clearly thrilled Hiddleston hammed it up, other key announcements were made during the panel, but Loki s speech still stands as the studio’s most successful Hall H stunt.3. Star Wars Debuts At Comic-ConLong before the Hall H spectacles, however, an upcoming film called Star Wars made a modest debut at the 1976 San Diego Comic-Con. Roy Thomas and Howard Chaykin appeared to talk up their Marvel Comics adaptation with the movie while Lucasfilm rep Charles Lippincott showed stills from the film. While there were definitely empty seats, it would prove to be an influential hour as the con-goers in attendance witnessed a legit sneak peek of the film that would change everything. And that Comic-Con had it first tells you it was always capable of forecasting the next big pop culture thing; even in its earliest days.2. The Avengers Assemble(Photo by © Marvel Studios, © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)Saturday in Hall H during Comic-Con 2011 stands in memory for so many things. There was the stabbing, Harrison Ford’s appearance, the debut of footage from Cowboys Aliens, Captain America: The First Avenger – which had only begun shooting four days earlier – and the premiere of the 3D trailer for Thor. Then there came a teaser trailer in which the voice of Samuel L. Jackson told of the day when Earth s mightiest heroes would stand together as the Avengers. Afterward, the stars of Marvel’s The Avengers – Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Mark Ruffalo – assembled for the first time ever. Though they did not take questions, the audience was receptive to the moment while photographers blinded everyone in attendance. It was the capstone of the convention that year and the beginning of still so much to come.1. Twilight And Avatar Duke It Out Over Hall HBut one moment stands above all the others as the moment of Comic-Con. It was the event which changed the show from a celebration of the popular arts to the pop-culture event everyone wanted to be at: the announcement that The Twilight Saga: New Moon and James Cameron’s Avatar would appear back-to-back in Hall H during the 2009 convention. Originally, the Avatar presentation was scheduled first, but memories of the way Twilight fans camped out in Hall H in 2008 left Cameron’s fans in a tizzy, worried the Twilight fans and their dedication would mean missing 25 minutes of Avatar. Comic-Con switched the time slots with New Moon starting before Avatar, but it was indicative of the way the show was changing. Phenomena outside of comics were coming to San Diego and proving to be successful. Securing a Comic-Con badge became more difficult and camp-outs to get into Hall H became the norm. The modern excitement, and occasional frenzy, was born here. From then on, Hall H was really the place to be and line management became a pressing concern for convention organizers. For those of us on the ground, it was an amazing thing to witness and changed the way we planned for Comic-Con forever.Like this?

The frontpage in 1998. One problem: Senh had left Design Reactor and taken Rotten Tomatoes with him. The site was still hosted on Design Reactor s servers, but the trio decided that Senh would leave the company to devote himself to his passion project, and be replaced by a new Creative Director. Senh left the Bay Area and went back to Sacramento, but the accumulative work burnt him out. Even Rotten Tomatoes – where everything was still manual and included treks to the library to copy review quotes from newspapers – had lost its luster. The site stopped being updated for several weeks. People wrote in asking what was happening. Perhaps, Senh thought, he’d take a crack at his original love: Filmmaking.Senh got in touch with two Sacramento high school friends: Bobby Ly, an accountant who clerked at his family s Chinese video store where Senh rented Hong Kong movies, and Binh Ngo, who at the time was working the night shift at a veterinarian clinic. Bobby would nominally update Rotten Tomatoes, while Senh and Binh set out to shoot a movie, using Robert Rodriguez’s Rebel Without a Crew – which chronicles the director’s early and frugal days in the industry – as a guide and bible. The plan was to adapt horror novelist Dean Koontz’s novel Fear Nothing, whose protagonist has xeroderma pigmentosum, a genetic disorder that causes severe sunburn and skin pigmentation after brief daylight exposure, something that would facilitate many night shoots. After a few weeks, they had enough footage to show to close friends and family, including Binh’s sister, whose response was blunt: “This is horrible.”“How did that feel?” I asked Senh.“Not good,” he says, laughing.Did negative reviews save Rotten Tomatoes? Maybe, but both Bobby and Binh had convinced Senh that Rotten Tomatoes was still worth pursuing. The three resumed work on the site. Fear Nothing remains un-adapted.Léolo, which inspired the Rotten Tomatoes name, and A Bug s Life, whose site traffic suggested RT was being making an impact in the industry. (Photo by Pixar/Courtesy Everett Collection)Cut to early 1999, with the dotcom bubble in full bloom. I could tell because I was in high school in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley, and traffic was getting worse every day. Modern life had evolved computers from luxury to necessity, and mass adoption of the Internet was connecting the world in an unfathomably exciting new way. And with that, new opportunities to get rich. An idea, presented well enough, was enough to get venture capitalists to rattle their bank accounts for cash to invest, as a billion dollars in frenzied speculation transformed the Bay Area.Design Reactor was growing, significantly helped along by a deal with Disney to create and maintain everything Disney Channel online. Things were going well enough that they hired a CFO, Lily Chi, and a Marketing Director, Paul Lee, who had actually been one of Design Reactor’s co-founders.Still, people weren’t exactly tripping over themselves to invest in a web design firm. It was the ’90s. They wanted edgy, extreme. Rotten Tomatoes was identified as the breakthrough Trojan horse. Senh accepted an offer from Patrick and Stephen to reunite, bringing Binh and Bobby with him. Patrick, who was the best of the group when it came to working with people and managing relationships, raised .2 million across 1999. Rotten Tomatoes aimed to be incorporated January 2000. Design Reactor and its business would be taken over by another company in San Jose at that point. All 25 of its current employees elected to make the jump over to Rotten Tomatoes the next year.Meanwhile, with Rotten Tomatoes back in the fold, Design Reactor’s Susan Nakasora was brought over to RT right away. She had an English degree, and her job was to copyedit everything on site, including the quotes from reviews that you see on a movie’s page. Binh, relatively along for the ride, was installed as Rotten Tomatoes’ first editor-in-chief, though most of the writing involved creating spotlight copy on the homepage pointing to movies around the site. This was the start of the editorial team at Rotten Tomatoes.Binh, jokingly reflecting on the job, told me: “I kept on thinking that I only wrote two sentences through all my time there: ‘Click here’ and ‘Read more. ”(It wouldn’t be until November 2004 that Rotten Tomatoes would expand into news coverage, with features, interviews, and more. The first article we posted reported on development rumors of a Halo movie. Some things never change.)During this time, publicists began inviting staff to early movie screenings. Binh and Senh recall showing up and being denied entry the first few times, as studio representatives believed their invites to be fake. Binh presumes this was because they were fresh-faced Asians in a white male-dominated field, though Senh takes a broader interpretation.“They were generally wary of online critics and treated them as second-class citizens,” Senh says. “That was one of the reasons why I wanted to feature online critics on the Tomatometer.”THE MARKET CRASHES, BUT AN OFFICE MOVE-IN, SHOWBIZ FRIENDS, AND DIABLO LATE-NIGHTS GO A LONG WAYPatrick Lee in 2017. (Photo by Maggie West)January 2000: Three months before the dotcom bubble burst. Time to incorporate Rotten Tomatoes. One investor who was part of the .2 million angel funding had gotten cold feet, but Disney paying up on accounts receivable as Design Reactor was spun off to independence netted the team another million. Early after incorporating (under the name Incfusion, because something called Rotten Tomatoes was not considered a legitimate business), Patrick brokered a deal to have mySimon.com, a price search engine, integrated onto the site. Though no one could know it at the time, the monthly income from the deal would be crucial to RT’s imminent survival.On April 14, the bubble officially burst as the Nasdaq dropped 9% in one day. By the end of the week, the loss would be 25%, and by the end of the year, .75 trillion in Internet stock will have evaporated. Traffic in the Bay Area returns to normal.A 13-digit loss in market valuation spooked investors and the money dried up from the landscape. As other startups started dying overnight, the Rotten Tomatoes team knew hard decisions would have to be made.“At the end of the day, you can’t really fight the numbers,” Paul says. “We had an all-hands meeting, where we were honest with everybody that we have to start reducing headcount. We wanted to make sure that everybody had a chance to find something else. Because everybody was doing something very important, we had to downsize in a way that wasn’t disruptive to the business.”“We had to do what we had to do to stay alive,” Patrick says. “I remember it was 25, 21, 17, 14, 11, and then seven employees.”This was Senh, Patrick, and Stephen, the founders of Rotten Tomatoes; editorial members Binh and Susan; and CFO Lily with Marketing Director Paul.Stephen Wang in 2016. (Photo by Getty Images: Bloomberg / Contributor)More drastic measures would be taken. mySimon.com was not spared its fate as a dotcom casualty, and when that monthly income went away in 2001, Patrick and Paul opted to take no salary for the next six months. Everyone else took a 30%-50% pay cut. Patrick himself decided to move into the office.“Patrick and I were living off our savings, and one day, he had this idea that rent was his biggest expense,” Paul told us in our original oral history. “Using the justification that he was a neat freak (believe me, Patrick is borderline obsessive-compulsive when it comes to cleanliness), he kind of wondered aloud whether he could just simply move out of his apartment and live in the office.”Patrick recalled: “It wasn’t bad. We had those pretty nice couches that could expand out. I had a little fold-out mattress and a sleeping bag, so I was pretty well hidden in case a security guard came through.”Weekdays, they would work expanding the site. Weekends often saw casino trips to play poker, even down to Vegas, and hitting up the buffet line because food was cheap. Jet Li invited everyone to his house and treated them to magnificent Mongolian BBQ. Stephen got to know Ebert, and would travel to Chicago at his invitation to meet at film events he organized. A former employee who landed at Pixar got them tours and screenings at their campus down the street. And those late encounters with security at the office were never hard to explain because Senh, who disliked showing up before noon, would tinker on Rotten Tomatoes deep into the night. Some would stick around to watch movies, as others set up for that great gathering of those dotcom days: LAN parties.In our oral history, Susan recalled: “For a while there was an RT guild in World of Warcraft, consisting of several current (for that time) and past employees, plus some friends. The guild’s tabard symbol was a shape that somewhat resembled a tomato splat. Binh was awesome – a gnome warrior who wore a deep sea diving helmet.”“We would all end up playing Diablo II, until like two in the morning,” Patrick tells me. “Either fall asleep in the office or go home, and then do it again. And then on the weekends, Friday night, we would play until six in the morning, until we’re literally falling asleep at our computers.”Dance Dance Revolution was another favorite party game, which Binh suspects didn t ingratiate the team with their office neighbor the floor below.The brand was on the brink, and times were rough, but everyone still believed in Rotten Tomatoes as a viable business. They were devoted to the site, but also to each other, working on this shared mission and developing a small, unique Asian-American community in this dingy Bay Area office.Patrick’s hunch to keep your friends close after graduating was right. That was the uniqueness I felt when I first arrived – a lingering philosophy of kindness and generosity. I asked if anyone considered leaving.“No, not really,” Stephen says. “I just really enjoyed working on the project during those years. I enjoyed working with Senh and Pat and Paul. Despite all of the business challenges, the site continued to grow, the user base continued to grow. It was a steady path upwards.”There was a sense of family at Rotten Tomatoes, and for some it would become literal: Senh ended up marrying Binh’s cousin, while Susan married Patrick’s brother, Bryan.BETTER LUCK TODAY: THE SITE RECOVERS AND STARTS GIVING BACK TO ASIAN-AMERICAN CREATIVES
华体会全站登录 This week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Black Canary, The Matrix: Resurrections, and Nosferatu.This WEEK S TOP STORYANYA TAYLOR-JOY REUNITES WITH ROBERT EGGERS FOR A NOSFERATU REMAKE(Photo by James Devaney/Getty Images)Although most people first saw The Witch in 2016, the film actually had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival a year earlier in January, 2015, where it was very well received. In between that premiere and its theatrical release, director Robert Eggers was able to begin development on a dream project, a remake of the 1922 vampire horror film Nosferatu (Certified Fresh at 97%), which Werner Herzog previously remade in 1979 (Certified Fresh at 95%). Since then, Eggers has instead directed The Lighthouse (Certified Fresh at 90%) and the upcoming Vikings epic The Northman (4/8/2022), but it s sounding like his Nosferatu movie might finally start filming soon. Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen s Gambit, The New Mutants), who first came to prominence as the star of The Witch, revealed this week that she will be reuniting with Eggers for Nosferatu. More immediately, however, Taylor-Joy will be starring in the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa (as Charlize Theron s character), for which she has been learning to do some of her own high-speed stunt driving.Other Top Headlines1. DISNEY CASTS YOUNG MUFASA AND SCAR IN THE LION KING PREQUEL (Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)The success of The Lion King (Certified Fresh at 93%) in 1994 led to an entire franchise consisting of sequels and TV shows. The CGI remake in 2019 (Rotten at 52%) was also a huge box office success with over .6 billion worldwide, but instead of a sequel, Disney is going the prequel route this time. The first two stars to be announced for the Lion King prequel are Kevlin Harrison, Jr. (The Trial of the Chicago 7) as the young Taka (aka Scar) and Aaron Pierre (The Underground Railroad) as the young Mufasa. Director Barry Jenkins (Moonlight, If Beale Street Could Talk) has started production on the prequel, which Disney describes as being live action, though it s probably more likely to be photorealistic CGI (since Disney also called the 2019 movie live action despite most of the movie actually being CGI animation).2. SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME CONFIRMS RETURN OF DOC OCK AND OTHER VILLAINS (Photo by Marvel Entertainment)Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige started the week by coyly telling Collider that the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home (12/17/2021) would definitely come out before the movie does. What Feige couldn t have predicted was that within 24 hours, someone would leak a version of the trailer online, albeit filmed off someone s phone and missing most of the special effects. That led soon after to the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer being officially released, special effects in place and everything. The trailer sets up the One More Day-style premise pretty clearly (which is also leading to a certain long-simmering fan theory), as Peter Parker seeks Doctor Strange s help after his identity goes public, ruining his life and that of those closest to him. The trailer also shows the return of Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus, and also seems to tease the returns of other villains like the Green Goblin, Sandman, and others. The trailer proved extremely popular, as it even broke the 24-hour record previously held by Avengers: Endgame.3. THE MATRIX: RESURRECTIONS TITLE AND PREMISE REVEALED(Photo by ©Warner Bros.)We don t have a trailer yet for the long-awaited sequel known until this week as The Matrix 4, but at the CinemaCon event for theatrical exhibitors, Warner Bros. revealed that the title will be The Matrix: Resurrections, and by showing them the first trailer, we also got our first synopsis. As the trailer starts, Keanu Reeves is back to being Thomas Anderson again, who tells his psychiatrist (Neal Patrick Harris) that he s been having strange dreams, for which he starts taking blue prescription bills, until a mysterious man (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) gives Anderson a red pill. Along the way, we also see Anderson meeting a woman played by Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity), and that most of the people around him live their lives staring at their phones. Warner Bros. will likely release the trailer to the online public soon, but we don t know for sure when that will be yet. The Matrix: Resurrections is currently scheduled for release on December 22, 2021.4. CHRISTIAN BALE TO PREACH TO THE CHURCH OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY (Photo by Jaap Buitendijk/©Paramount)Hollywood hasn t completely given up reading source material other than comic books. Every once in a while, we still hear about mid-range dramas adapted from magazine or newspaper articles, such as the 2019 Vanity Fair article The Church of Living Dangerously: How One of America s Biggest Pastors Became a Drug Runner for a Mexican Cartel. And in the spirit of the very best subtitles, that one also basically tells you exactly what the movie The Church of Living Dangerously is going be about. Christian Bale is now attached to star in the film adaptation as Oregon preacher John Lee Bishop, whose church became so large it took up an 8,500 square foot former K-Mart superstore, before he eventually became a drug smuggler. The Vanity Fair article will be adapted for the film by screenwriter Charles Randolph, who previously worked with Christian Bale on another true story, The Big Short (Certified Fresh at 89%).5. IN THE HEIGHTS STAR COREY HAWKINS JOINS THE COLOR PURPLE MUSICAL REMAKE (Photo by Steve Mack/Everett Collection)In 1985, Steven Spielberg directed the drama The Color Purple (Fresh at 81%), adapted from the novel of the same title by Alice Walker. Starting in 2005, The Color Purple was also adapted as a Broadway stage musical, which Warner Bros. is now adapting into a movie. Corey Hawkins, who recently starred in the movie adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda s In the Heights (Certified Fresh at 95%) is the first actor announced for the movie musical, reportedly as the character named Harpo, the character married to Oprah Winfrey s Sofia in Spielberg s film. (Side note: Harpo also happens to be Oprah spelled backwards, and it s the name of her production company.) Warner Bros. is now testing actresses opposite Corey Hawkins to play his wife. The Color Purple will be directed by Ghana-born filmmaker Blitz Bazawule, who previously directed Beyonce s Black is King (Certified Fresh at 94%).6. JAKE GYLLENHAAL JOINS ROBERT KIRKMAN S OBLIVION SONG (Photo by Anne Marie Fox/TM & ©Copyright Fox Searchlight)Comic book writer Robert Kirkman has also had success with the adaptations of both The Walking Dead (and its spinoffs) and the recent Amazon Prime animated series Invincible. Kirkman also created the comic book Oblivion Song, set in a world where 300,000 residents of Philadelphia suddenly disappear mysteirously. Jake Gyllenhaal is now attached to produce and star in an adaptation of Oblivion Song, as a man who makes daily trips to Oblivion , the part of Philadelphia from which the people went missing. Gyllenhaal has two wrapped films opening soon: The Guilty (10/1/2021) and Michael Bay s Ambulance (2/18/2022).7. BLACK CANARY TO GET HER OWN SPINOFF MOVIE AFTER LAST YEAR S BIRDS OF PREY (Photo by Claudette Barius/©Warner Bros.)One of the last major movies released just before movie theaters shut down last year was the DC Comics movie Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (Certified Fresh at 79%). It remains unclear if that film will ever get a direct sequel, but one of the characters is now likely to receive her own solo spinoff. Jurnee Smollett is attached to reprise her character for Black Canary, which is being developed by Lovecraft Country showrunner Misha Green for HBO Max. It s not yet known if any other Birds of Prey characters will return for Black Canary, or when the film might debut on the streaming service.8. TIFFANY HADDISH JOINS ANIMATED/LIVE-ACTION COMEDY ABOUT AN IMAGINARY FRIEND(Photo by Michele K. Short/Universal Pictures)Tiffany Haddish has been keeping so very busy and prolific that one could easily forget her big breakthrough role in Girls Trip (Certified Fresh at 92%) was only four years ago in 2017. Haddish has three wrapped films awaiting release (The Card Counter, Easter Sunday, and Nicolas Cage s The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent), and is also attached to star in Disney s next Haunted Mansion movie. She isn t slowing down, either, as this week she signed with Universal Pictures to star in their animated/live-action hybrid family comedy I.F. (shot for Imaginary Friend), although it s unclear whether she s playing the imaginary friend or the human character. I.F. will be directed by Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After, Sky High) from a screenplay by Darren Lemke (Goosebumps; co-writer of Mitchell s Shrek Forever After). I.F. also has competition at Paramount with Imaginary Friends, a comedy with a similar premise that may co-star Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski.9. JASON MOMOA AND DAVE BAUTISTA HOPE TO DO A BUDDY COP MOVIE WITH DAVID LEITCH(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough, JA/Everett Collection)Most new movie projects are announced via the rather old fashioned route of press releases and articles in trade publications like Variety or The Hollywood Reporter. This week, Jason Momoa decided to go a very different route, as he broke some big news during an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden while promoting Sweet Girl (Rotten at 16%). Momoa told Corden that he and Dave Bautista (who are both in the upcoming Dune remake) plan on doing a Lethal Weapon-style buddy-cop movie with director David Leitch (Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde), who reportedly called the pitch interesting (though that is far from a confirmation that Leitch will actually direct it).On an Apple device?

But indeed, Foxx the multi-hyphenate found time to debut as a comedy movie lead for The Truth About Cats Dogs in 1996 and then delivered his first dramatic performance in Oliver Stone s Any Given Sunday three years later. But that was all a prelude to his big 2004, when Foxx was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award with the Michael Mann/Tom Cruise thriller Collateral and took home Oscar gold that night for Best Actor, thanks to the musical biopic Ray.He teamed up with Mann again for Miami Vice in 2006, the same year of musical sensation Dreamgirls arrival. Due Date, Valentine s Day, Rio, and Horrible Bosses were four 0 million-grossing box office hits in a row, so with his reputation as a guy who can get awards and put butts in seats cemented, there was only one place to go left: Casa de QT. Working with Quentin Tarantino produced the brassy Western Django Unchained, which would go on to become the director s biggest B.O. draw.Django would be Foxx s last Certified Fresh movie for a while, through a stretch of years that has included The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Robin Hood, and White House Down. 2017 s Baby Driver brought back some of that critical acclaim, and so has his latest: Just Mercy, a true story legal drama featuring Foxx as Walter McMillian, who was imprisoned for a murder in 1986 he did not commit. Co-starring Michael B. Jordan and Brie Larson, see where the critics place Just Mercy as we rank all Jamie Foxx movies by Tomatometer!
Spanish-language animation along with Spanish-language TV, horror, and cinema at large is on the rise. Over the last 15 years animators from all over the Latinx diaspora have emerged to tell stories in a variety of animated mediums: traditional 2D animation, 3D computer-generated graphics, stop-motion, rotoscoping, and beyond. And while many of their names aren t as synonymous with animation as Disney, Miyazaki, or even Bakshi and Bluth, with such an abundance of talented creators in the game it’s high time more viewers became familiar with their work. That said, spoiler alert, there is a Disney film on this list. Gotta give props where they’re due.Like the Latinx diaspora itself, the movies on this list come from all over the world and tell all kinds of stories from fantastical dreamland adventures, to horrifying stories of survival, to every coming-of-age beat in between all styled to their creator’s unique visions. Some are geared toward children, others should never be viewed by a child. But they are all fantastic pieces of work that any animation (or movie) lover should know. BuÃ±uel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles (2018) 98%Country: SpainSet in the 1930s, Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles is a surreal journey through the making of director Luis Buñuel’s documentary Land Without Bread. Following the fallout of his first film, Buñuel is stranded without a project. When a bet backfires, he finds himself traveling with anthropologist Maurice Legenre through the Las Hurdes region of Spain, filming a documentary. Buñuel borrows from its titular director’s life and work, but is primarily based on Fermín Solis’ graphic novel Buñuel en el laberinto de las tortugas. It’s currently Certified Fresh, with many critics praising its innovative, surrealist imagery, and its ability to do a l
