Subjective reality is still a key element of the series, and while audiences may still end up sympathetic to David’s pain, Hawley hoped viewers “realize over the course of the season how this need for love — that he feels is solely about him — begins to distance us from David a bit [and think,] ‘Oh, he s a very ill man.’”But even in that, his illness does not necessary equal villainy in the Golden Age comic book sense. David’s selfishness may, however, lead some to see him that way. “We expect our characters to learn and to be redeemed, but there are some people who aren t really capable of that,” Hawley said.Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk is, in fact, trying to redeem himself. Though, as Negahban put it, “it s more about saving the world and also saving David. He really cares about David.” Despite being the unambiguous evil orbiting David’s life in the first season, Farouk is a changed person when we meet him at the beginning of Season 3. “He s trying to be a good boy,” the actor said. “There has been a struggle for him to kind of determine whether [that is] right or wrong for him. And he s trying to discover that through his journey.”In some ways, the journey, as Negahban relayed it, parallels David’s major internal conflict. “He came from nothing. He became somebody, he had the power. He got lost in his power; he didn t know what to do with it. And his rage and anger took over,” he explained. “It goes full circle and it gets to the point that he realizes that that rage and anger is what is destroying him. So if he can get rid of that, he can redeem himself. He can redo everything.”(Photo by Pari Dukovic/FX)To some extent, Hawley said the conflicts mirror the tension between childhood and adulthood, adding that at least some of David’s issues go back to the moment his birth parents gave him up for adoption. And David’s attempt to stop Farouk in the past means he may run into his father, X-Men founder Charles Xavier (Harry Lloyd).Lloyd told us not to expect the “straight-laced Charles we know” from the X-Men films or animated television series.“It s trippy stuff,” said Stevens, adding there is “a lot of confusion and hurt, obviously” in regards to David s feelings on Xavier.“It is nice to finally to have this string that ties our crazy balloon to the main raft of the X-Men stories,” he continued. “And I think that will be satisfying to people who know and love X-Men and Legion. He also suspected Legion viewers not well-versed in X-Men lore will become curious about the Professor and his Merry Mutants: [It] might cause them to go and watch some other X-Men-y type things.”Of course, it remains to be seen if David will follow in his comic book counterpart s footsteps and end the world as viewers have known it. That story was ultimately resolved when somewhat familiar mutants from the new timeline learned about David s actions and prevented Xavier s death. It is a pretty out-there idea and, yet, fits pretty well into the framework of Legion. No one on set was willing to divulge if the ending resembles David s most infamous comic book turn, but Stevens said the end gives the whole story a meaning not readily apparent before. It s really delicately done, I think. And very beautiful, he said.Legion season 3 premieres Monday, June 24 at 10 p.m. on FXLike this?

(Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp. / Courtesy: Everett Collection.)How and when did you decide to jump from acting to directing? Did you always know that was something you wanted to do?When I did Roswell, there weren t female directors. We had 61 episodes and we had one female director on the last episode. I didn t grow up seeing an image of a female director, so I never thought it was something that I could have. I definitely spent my time in editing during Roswell and asked a lot of questions and paid attention, but during my 20s, you just didn t see it.Then when I was on Life Unexpected they brought on a female director, Liz Allen, and it really kind of rocked my world. Through my relationship with her, she was like, You can do this. I started shadowing a lot after I got off Life Unexpected. That s where I was like, OK, this is something that I can do. By the time I did UnREAL, I came to them right away, and I was like, I have done my homework. I am prepared. I would really love an opportunity. I m really grateful to them that in the second season they gave me an episode to direct. I ended up doing four during the course of the series.What has your experience been like directing a show that you re also acting in, versus something like Roswell, New Mexico and Pretty Little Liars where you re not appearing on screen? The difference is that you re not really splitting your focus, but at the same time when you re directing and acting, it s pretty powerful. You know, you re really in it and you can really command the energy of a scene because your acting is putting that out. So, you can really craft how you want it to be.When you re not acting in it, when you re sitting back, you can take a breather and really see the scope of the piece. I think it s incredibly rewarding to work in this space. All this information that I ve learned and all of these tricks of the trade, of crafting an episode of performance and an episode of TV — to be able to push that information forward and share with these young actors and watch their performance blossom, it is so gratifying. It s a way of giving back in some ways, and I am just really relishing it.(Photo by Lewis Jacobs/The CW)It s mentorship from a totally different angle.Absolutely. You know, there are directors that come through your career that really give you these little nuggets that change the way you work. I try to give it as much as I can, because I want to have an impact in the few days that I m with them.Do you think that there will be an opportunity for you to appear on screen in Roswell, New Mexico?Carina MacKenzie — she s so talented — if she wants to figure out a way, I ll do it.Can you share anything else about your upcoming projects? Do you have any on-screen appearances planned?I did an episode of Law Order: SVU and Lucy Liu was directing it. That was really fun. I just did an episode of Drunk History that aired. But, quite honestly, following up Rachel Goldberg on UnREAL, there are big shoes to fill. I m just kind of taking a minute to find the right thing… because I really want to give it my all and find the next right character and the next right story.Roswell, New Mexico episode Songs About Texas airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on The CWLike this?

The swimming scene definitely stood out to me, almost like a marker within the entire narrative that kind of stuck with you, as these important moments do. I think we all have those in our lives, markers that we can all kind of recall as adults now that shape our journey on some level, whether that s a swimming lesson, or a bike riding lesson, or getting to college and meeting Barry Jenkins – or whatever these things are that find ways to change and alter your own personal narrative are wonderful. I feel very lucky, again, to have met Barry when I did.

(Photo by Stefania D'Alessandro/WireImage)After James Gunn was fired from directing Marvel’s third Guardians of the Galaxy film, fans wondered whether Taika Waititi – who made Marvel’s critically acclaimed Thor: Ragnarock, which contained much more humor than previous films starring the God of Thunder – could and would take over the franchise.He told reporters in Los Angeles on Monday that he is definitely not directing Guardians of the Galaxy 3.“For me, those are James s films,” he told Rotten Tomatoes and a small group of reporters after a panel for FX’s What We Do in the Shadows adaptation at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “Going into something like that, which has got his stamp all over it, would feel like going into someone s house and going, ‘Hey, I m your new dad, and this is how we make peanut butter sandwiches now.’ It just feels kind of awkward. I just wouldn t know how to follow up those two films because those are his babies.”Waititi is still in conversation with Marvel about future films, however.“I’m not doing that movie, but I’m still hanging out with those guys and talking about new stuff,” he confirmed. “I don t know what it might be yet, but, yeah, I want to do another movie with them for sure.
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 The Batman, Venom, and The Matrix 4.This WEEK S TOP STORYZOE KRAVITZ POUNCES ON CATWOMAN FOR THE BATMAN, PAUL DANO RIDES FOR RIDDLER(Photo by Gregorio T. Binuya/Everett Collection)Going into this week, the only actor that we had heard was in talks to play a villain in The Batman (6/25/2021) was Jonah Hill. Now we have two people confirmed, and none of their names is Jonah. Zoe Kravitz is Catwoman. On Thursday, the news broke that Hill had dropped out of talks to play a Batman villain, potentially because Hill had asked for million, twice what Warner Bros. was paying Robert Pattinson to be Batsy. Whatever his role was, The Riddler is now on the scene, who has signed on Paul Dano. Meanwhile, the search is still on for the third villain: Penguin. In related news, Robert Pattinson also made a surprising revelation this week, saying that his version of The Batman is not a hero. Other Top Headlines1. MATRIX 4: NEIL PATRICK HARRIS IN, JADA PINKETT-SMITH IN TALKS(Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)Last week, we learned that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta from Aquaman) had been cast in a new lead role (AKA not Morpheus, etc.). And this week, we heard about two other possible new additions, plus a returning cast member from the two sequels. Let s start with Jada Pinkett Smith, who is now in talks with Warner Bros to reprise her character Niobe, the ship captain. Jada Pinkett Smith s recent roles have included Bad Moms, Girls Trip, and this summer s Angel Has Fallen. One of the new characters will be played by Neil Patrick Harris; various guesses online include a Mr. agent, the adult Spoonboy, or a younger version of The Architect. The third name in play this week is Jessica Henwick, who is probably best known for playing Colleen Wing in Netflix-Marvel s Iron Fist series. 2. ROBERT EGGERS VIKING EPIC THE NORTHMAN ATTRACTS THE WITCH AND THE LIGHTHOUSE ALUM(Photo by A24/courtesy Everett Collection)This month s spooky black-and-white drama The Lighthouse is only director Robert Eggers second feature film (after 2015 s The Witch), but already the guy appears to be developing his own regular cast of actors. Eggers next film will be a Viking revenge film set in 10th century Iceland, and stars both previous and new to his troupe have been announced. Let s start with the new: Nicole Kidman and brothers Alexander and Bill Skarsgård. The previous: Anya Taylor-Joy and Willem Dafoe. In related news, Willem Dafoe also this week officially joined Guillermo del Toro s Nightmare Alley remake. 3. GAL GADOT TO PRODUCE AND STAR IN WORLD WAR II POLISH UNDERGROUND BIOPIC(Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)It has long been a Hollywood tradition that when movie stars get to a certain status, the opportunity opens up for them to guide their own careersand potentially, those of others) through their own production company. Gal Gadot, whose next major film will be next summer s Wonder Woman 1984, has formed a company with her husband Jaron Varsano called Pilot Wave. The first announced film for the new company will be Irena Sendler, a historical thriller about the life of Polish Underground leader, whom Gal Gadot will also portray. Sendler s organization worked in the Warsaw ghetto of World War II to save over 2,500 Jewish children, among other anti-Nazi efforts.4. JOHN KRASINSKI AND RYAN REYNOLDS TEAMING UP FOR IMAGINARY FRIENDS(Photo by Paramount /Courtesy Everett Collection)After two indie films (Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and The Hollars), actor-turned-director John Krasinski had a surprise blockbuster hit with his third film, the sci-fi thriller A Quiet Place (in which he starred with his wife, Emily Blunt). Krasinski quickly moved ahead with a Quiet Place 2 sequel (3/20/2020), but with this week s news, Krasinski appears ready for another original movie. Krasinski will both direct and costar in the comedy Imaginary Friends, with Ryan Reynolds. The high concept comedy will tell the story of a man (Reynolds) with the magical ability to see other adult people s imaginary friends, some of which, lacking love and friendship, turn to the dark side. 5. JURASSIC WORLD 3 RECRUITS NEW STARS FROM SHE S GOTTA HAVE IT AND SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS(Photo by Netflix / courtesy Everett Collection)A few weeks ago, one of the big stories of that week was that original Jurassic Park stars Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill were all returning for Jurassic World 3 (6/11/2021). This week, Universal Pictures appeared to be focusing instead on casting new roles. The first announced was Mamoudou Athie, who is probably best known for his role in Facebook Watch s Sorry For Your Loss, as well as in The Get Down and Patti Cake$. Then, earlier today, Variety also reported that DeWanda Wise of Netflix s She s Gotta Have It is now in talks for a leading role. It s not yet known what sort of roles either Athie or Wise will be playing when Jurassic World 3 is released on June 2021, the same month as Micronauts, Sesame Street, and The Batman.6. THE ADDAMS FAMILY SEQUEL ALREADY IN DEVELOPMENT FOLLOWING MILLION OPENING WEEKEND(Photo by MGM / courtesy Everett Collection)MGM probably had ideas in the work for a sequel to The Addams Family far before its release last week, but following its million opening weekend, it s go time. MGM has scheduled The Addams Family 2 for October 22, 2021, which is the weekend after Halloween Ends. It s not yet known if the original voice cast is also signed to return for the sequel. 7. NAOMIE HARRIS JOINING WOODY HARRELSON S CARNAGE IN VENOM 2 AS SHRIEK(Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)We ve known since the ending of Venom that Woody Harrelson would be costarring in next year s Venom 2 (10/2/2020) as the crimson symbiote-powered serial killer Carnage. It wasn t until this week that it was revealed that Tom Hardy s Venom and Woody Harrelson s Carnage would actually be joined by a third symbiote-possessed character, in the form of the female villain Shriek. Sony Pictures didn t delay much after letting that news out, however, as just before we went to press today, we learned that Shriek will be portrayed by British actress Naomie Harris (Moonlight, Skyfall). 8. DANIEL KALUUYA WANTS TO GIVE THE WORLD A NEW BARNEY THE DINOSAUR MOVIE(Photo by Polygram Filmed Entertainment/courtesy Everett Collection)Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Barney s Great Adventure, which attempted to take the then-popular kids TV show, Barney Friends and turn it into a movie franchise. The plan didn t work and the TV show went off the air in 2009. Even so, Barney Friends obviously is remembered with some nostalgia by the now-adults who watched the show during its 90s heyday. And so perhaps it s not surprising that a Barney reprise is now in development. British actor Daniel Kaluuya, who is probably best known for both Get Out and his role in Black Panther, has teamed up with Mattel Film (via his 59% production company) to start development on a live-action Barney movie. It s not yet known in what form Barney will be depicted in this movie, but three possible options are: #1 a big purple foam costume like the original TV show, #2 a computer animated (but still cartoony) purple dinosaur, or #3, a full-giant-sized purple Tyrannosaur Rex (the original dinosaurs stood anywhere from 12 to 20 feet tall).
Tom Hardy is the latest actor to portray notorious gangster Al Capone, and from the sound of it, nobody else ever needs to portray him again. Writer-director Josh Trank’s Capone is dividing critics, but everyone agrees that Hardy’s performance is out of this world, for better or worse. The movie itself sounds pretty crazy, too, as it depicts the criminal’s final year, when he was suffering from dementia. Right now, we can all use something out of the ordinary in our entertainment, and with Hardy shooting for the moon in the lead, Capone sounds like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Who isn’t enticed by that?Here’s what critics are saying about Capone:How crazy is Capone?It’s nuts, it’s a mess and it’s pretty damn entertaining if you don’t mind characters pooping the bed and getting stabbed in the neck. Steve Pond, The WrapIs Capone a fascinatingly idiosyncratic twilight-of-the-mobster drama? Or is it a Saturday Night Live sketch with pretensions? It may be a bit of both. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyTidal waves, CGI alligators, characters who cut their own eyeballs out of their skulls – when was the last time you saw a movie about mobsters that had any of this stuff? Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmIt’s not pleasing, but it’s too weird to be boring… You sit there and wonder how bizarre this movie is going to get and, scene by scene, you find out. Mick LaSalle, San Francisco ChronicleWhat begins as a gonzo lark quickly becomes exhausting. Richard Lawson, Vanity FairIs it worth seeing as a fun diversion?As nutty as Capone gets as a karmic fever dream for its violent subject, it’s also really watchable in a break-your-brain sort of way. Brian Truitt, USA TodayAll hell breaks loose… and viewers have to make up their minds: Are you going to run from this whacked-out twilight of the gods, or give in to it? Steve Pond, The WrapThis hollow if perversely watchable exercise in self-annihilation builds to a violent finale that finally makes good on the biopic’s sordid potential. David Ehrlich, IndieWireStarved as we are for big, exciting diversion right now, I won’t blame you if you decide to give Hardy that attention. Maybe you’ll see something worthy in the raving crypt keeper. Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair(Photo by Vertical Entertainment)Is Tom Hardy the biggest reason to see the movie?The borderline self-parodying Method madness of Tom Hardy s performance does kind of demand to be seen. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterHardy’s psychotic portrayal is compelling and worth the price of admission. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsThe combination of Hardy’s performance and the energy Trank and his crew bring to these fever-dream sequences make the whole project worth it. Aaron Neuwirth, We Live EntertainmentHow is his performance?Hardy, all guttural growls and tics, seems to be vying for the prize of Most Acting. Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment WeeklyHardy’s performance is undoubtedly so unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Brian Truitt, USA TodayA career-best performance, which is never anything short of fascinating. Josh Wilding, ComicBookMovie.comHardy gets to go as big as he possibly can… He shuffles, he stumbles, he mumbles, he drools. Buried under make-up, there are shots here where he doesn’t even look human. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmHardy’s on a roll with bonkers performances… if he cannot figure out a way to dial into the frequency of his directors, people will stop seeing a master performer at work. Marshall Shaffer, The PlaylistYes, Hardy chews the scenery… his over-the-top destructive nature comes across as cartoonish because we’re unable to contrast that malice with moments of calm, collective authority. Jared Mobarak, The Film Stage(Photo by Vertical Entertainment)Who does he remind you of?Hardy once again combines the fearless commitment of early Marlon Brando with the utter unintelligibility of much older Marlon Brando. David Ehrlich, IndieWireTom Hardy playing dying Al Capone is as if Nick Nolte were playing the First vampire from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Richard Lawson, Vanity FairHardy s Fonse more than anything recalls Al Pacino s crazed mugging as the Capone-inspired Alphonse Big Boy Caprice in Dick Tracy. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterWhat s this about him pooping himself?Hardy turns his cast into unwilling straight men for his routine, such as during a tense interview with FBI agents that ends with Capone loudly farting and defecating himself. Marshall Shaffer, The PlaylistCapone routinely soils himself, chomps on cigars and later carrots, accuses loved ones and employees of being assassins, shoots an alligator. Richard Lawson, Vanity FairHey, you haven’t seen Al Capone until you’ve seen him chomping on a carrot and wielding a machine gun while wearing a droopy diaper. Steve Pond, The WrapYou tell me if you want to see a movie featuring not one, not two, but three separate scenes in which the increasingly feeble Capone loses control of his bladder and/or his bowels. Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-TimesNot only is he incontinent – yes, there are multiple, uncomfortably lengthy scenes where Al Capone sh s himself in this movie, folks – he’s also prone to hallucinations. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmThis movie is not going to win points for its handling of the indignities of dementia. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterIs this a comedy?Of course, it’s funny. Intentionally? How could it not be? Mick LaSalle, San Francisco ChronicleThere is a grotesque humor… Trank’s macabre humor never feels like mockery. Hope Madden, Columbus Underground(Photo by Vertical Entertainment)Are there any other great performances?Linda Cardellini flexes more in the role of Capone’s wife Mae than she has in her many other turns as put-upon spouse. She’s a great sparring partner for Hardy. Hope Madden, Columbus UndergroundLinda Cardellini is excellent as Capone’s devoted wife, and Matt Dillon (always underrated) has a solid role as one of Al’s old cronies. Of course, McLachlan is fun to watch as well. Chris Bumbray, JoBlo s Movie EmporiumHow does it compare to, say, The Irishman?Think Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman taken to the extreme. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsImagine the last 10 minutes of The Irishman but as a 100-minute film. Chris Bumbray, JoBlo s Movie EmporiumYou could think of Capone as The Irishman as reimagined by David Lynch. Steve Pond, The WrapWhile Scorsese utilizes Frank Sheeran hanging on the brink of death to explore morality and mortality in the gangster genre, what Trank has to say about a similar era in a dying man’s life is more nightmarish fever-dream clouded by paranoia and dread. Marshall Shaffer, The PlaylistThe last half hour of The Irishman crossed with the doddering-legend parts of Citizen Kane, all mixed in with Hardy’s apparent desire to play the creature in Frankenstein. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyAre there other comparisons?This is primarily a head movie that unfolds in the sepulchral chambers of Capone s addled skull with a heavy load of woozy Lynchian weirdness and a dash of Kubrick s The Shining. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterImagine a Ken Russell artist biopic, not one about Liszt or Mahler but about a befuddled blob. Mick LaSalle, San Francisco ChronicleA Twilight Zone riff on the This is Your Life template wherein the subject is transported through a Jacob’s Ladder-esque hole towards oblivion. Jared Mobarak, The Film StageCapone begins to feel like a riff on A Christmas Carol, with Scarface standing in for old Scrooge. But there’s no redemption here. Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm(Photo by Vertical Entertainment)Is it going to get any Oscar love?It would be a sign of a truly, truly broken year if this hideous indulgence of a film gained any of that kind of traction. Richard Lawson, Vanity FairIt may not be Oscar worthy, but it’s an odd duck that’s kind of a perfect change of pace flick during these strange times. Joey Magidson, Hollywood NewsIs it a good comeback for Josh Trank?An undeniable return to form which should put him back on the radar in a big way. Josh Wilding, ComicBookMovie.comCapone isn’t a knockout comeback, but it’s an undeniably striking and bold endeavor that transcends genre constraints and conventional molds. Jared Mobarak, The Film StageTrank attempts to do a David Cronenberg or David Lynch style movie, a move that’s a major reset for his career. Chris Bumbray, JoBlo s Movie EmporiumPut it this way… If his next movie is like Fantastic Four, I don’t want to see it. But if his next movie is as purely nuts as Capone, I’m there. Mick LaSalle, San Francisco ChronicleCapone will be released on VOD on Tuesday, May 12.
a woman s breast it feels like a bag of sand?’”“I was producing Anchorman, and Steve Carell was just so insanely funny every day, improvising the craziest, most hilarious stuff ever. I walked up to him one day and I said, ‘It seems like you should be the star of a movie. Do you have any ideas?’ And then a couple of days later he walked up to me and told me a couple of ideas. And the last one was: What if I made a movie where I played a 40-year-old virgin? And he said he had worked on a sketch at Second City, where he played a 40-year-old virgin at a poker game, and everyone was talking about sex and telling dirty stories, and it became very clear that he was making his up. And I think that the pitch he had was, ‘You know how when you touch a woman s breast it feels like a bag of sand?’ And oddly, instantly, I understood what he was talking about, and we started writing a movie together. (Photo by @ Universal)“We would always leave time to shoot the script – but then also to really play.” I ve always been a big fan of improvisation ever since I saw Ben Stiller do it when we did the Ben Stiller Show. I definitely encouraged it when Adam McKay was directing Anchorman. With The Forty-Year-Old Virgin, Steve is such a master at it that whatever scene we were doing we would always leave time to shoot the script but then also to really play. And that s how we did the chest-waxing scene. It basically was an extended improvisation. The Scene: Andy Gets His Chest WaxedOne moment, one line really – “Kelly Clarkson!” – remains the most cherished among a series of wonderful moments in this landmark comedy (though the final musical number, a post-coital “Age of Aquarius,” comes close). In this unique makeover scene, Andy (Carell) gets his chest waxed, and in order to capture the moment in its visceral, wince-inducing glory, Apatow simply let his four cameras roll.“Someone came in and said, ‘I act and I wax!’”“We wanted to do some version of a makeover sequence, but we knew that had been done a ton of times. So we were trying to think of original scenes for a makeover montage. Then one day Steve said, ‘What if you waxed me but you did it for real?’ Now at the time, I thought Steve made it up and had never been waxed, but since then I realized that he had been waxed many times in his life and was pretending that he had never been waxed before. I know that by the shape of his chest hair. But at the time, I thought, wow, what a crazy idea. Who ever gets waxed? So we hired a woman who was a professional chest-waxer to do it in the movie. Someone came in and said, ‘I act and I wax!’”(Photo by @ Universal)“We knew that we had to get Steve s real reactions, so we shot it like a documentary.”“I basically set up four cameras and we had some basic beats we wanted to hit. We knew that we had to get Steve s real reactions, so we shot it like a documentary. We wrote out tons of curses, because we did plan the main joke to be that he would just curse right into her face. And we also made lists of words that weren t real curses that sounded like curses. That s how we got to Steve screaming ‘Kelly Clarkson!’ Off to the side, Seth Rogen had made this enormous list of curses, and I would just yell them out to Steve, and each time they ripped the hair off of something he would scream out one of the curses.”“You re supposed to put Vaseline over the nipples, so you don t accidentally rip them off. Apparently that was a step she forgot about.”“The woman who waxed Steve – she may not have been that good at it. I think you re supposed to put Vaseline over the nipples, so you don t accidentally rip them off. And apparently that was a step she forgot about. He was definitely bleeding for real. In fact, we had to CGI out the fact that there was a lot more blood than you see in the movie.”(Photo by @ Universal)“I don t think I ve ever laughed harder than at Jackass movies.”“It is of the Jackass mode of comedy. I don t remember if it came out before or after the craze of pranks and painful violent stunts, things like that. But people always love that. I don t think there s anything funnier than Jackass. I don t think I ve ever laughed harder than at Jackass movies. And I also think it works the same way a horror movie works, which is: you think something s gonna happen, then it finally does, but not at the moment you think it will – and it makes you scream and hide your face. It has a little horror to it as well.”THE IMPACT: A New Kind of Comedy Virgin was a box office success – it’s currently the 16th highest-earning R-rated comedy of all time – but more than that, it reshaped our idea of movie comedies, particularly those with a romantic bent. Gross-out laughs could be followed by moments of genuine sweetness. Romantic leads could be dorkish, a little schlubby, and, at least for much of the film – very hairy. Silliness could be whip-smart. As long as it was all grounded in reality. Apatow would go on to direct landmark comedies like Knocked Up and Trainwreck, and produce the likes of Bridesmaids and HBO’s Girls, all of which bear some of the markings of what made Virgin such a smash: characters you love and moments you will never forget, because they make you cringe, gag, and leave the room, but also make you swoon and cry.“I m sure it seemed very self-involved. But it was why the movie worked.”“A lot of our crew didn t get what we were doing. That was at a time when there weren t a lot of movies that were shot the way we were, with all of this improvisation, and a lot of the crew just seemed annoyed we were doing so many takes. We had a lot of Clint Eastwood s crew, and they were used to doing one or two takes. And we d do tons of takes and tons of improv. I m sure it seemed very self-involved. But it was why the movie worked, because everyone had the ability to experiment.”(Photo by @ Universal)“I hadn t directed a movie before. He hadn t been the lead in a movie before.”“It was a big moment for me and [Steve]. I hadn t directed a movie before. He hadn t been the lead in a movie before. You know, we both weren t sure we knew what we were doing. We had an instinct, we liked the script, we hoped we weren t crazy. But I remember Steve kept saying, ‘I m trying to be nice to our casting director because if this movie bombs I want her to still use me.’ That was some of the energy we had – we re going for a big swing here, and we hope we re right, but we ll see. It was very exciting, and we laughed our asses off the whole time.”“You know, it gave us all our careers.”“I look back at it as sort of a high point in my career. I got to work with so many of my friends – my wife Leslie Mann was so hilarious as Nicky the drunk girl. It was fun that we all had the courage to try something crazy, and it happened to work out. You know, it gave us all our careers.”The 40-Year-Old Virgin was released on August 19, 2005. Buy or rent it at FandangNOW.
hat show’s producers is running the Dirty John series.“There’s this fun, twisted fairy-tale aspect to the story,” Alexandra Cunningham tells Rotten Tomatoes, explaining that her adaptation doesn’t just add visuals, but is actually able to expand on the emotions of the story by dramatizing it. “A lot of things we’ve maintained — the spine and the scaffolding of the story — because they are so compelling and true and heart-wrenching. We put a lot more flesh on some bones.”For instance, Cunningham says she was able to address a concern people who listened to the podcast or read the Los Angeles Times articles had raised: Many listeners thought Debra Newell was “an incredibly stupid woman” for falling for Meehan’s exploitative schtick in the first place.Casting Britton as Newell certainly helped Cunningham combat this perception, and she framed the events in ways that should make viewers more empathetic towards the main character. She was also able to add some more depth to Meehan, who was not a participant in the podcast for reasons that are obvious to anybody who listened to the end. The show can follow Meehan as he goes about whatever dodgy business he was involved in, whereas the non-fiction podcast had to keep the speculation at a distance.“It gives you an even more complete picture of this man and commits you more emotionally than [you would have been] just [reading] the descriptions of what he did in the podcast, since you’re sort of watching them along with him,” Cunningham says. “It’s a point-of-view perspective that the podcast couldn’t do.”Up and Vanished Continues the InvestigationTrue crime might be podcasting’s leading genre, but don’t forget that it’s also been a TV mainstay for decades, dramatized or not. The recent Up and Vanished special, about Tara Grinstead, a teacher and former beauty queen who went missing in Georgia three years ago, is as much a sequel to host Payne Lindsey’s original podcast as it is an adaptation.“Both mediums rely on good storytelling,” Lindsey says of the difference between podcasts and TV. “Even though a podcast is strictly audio, listeners develop their own visuals for the story. It’s kind of a more intimate experience, and sometimes I think it actually makes the audience feel closer to the people involved.”The podcast medium offered Lindsey one thing that TV doesn’t. Because podcasts are typically cheaper and faster to make than TV shows, Up and Vanished was able to generate renewed interest in the case that led to a crucial break in real time.“That would have been a lot harder to do with a television crew on the ground, following a production schedule, along with all of the other elements that make a TV show,” he says.The Future(Photo by Syed family/HBO)The three November podcast-inspired shows are quite different from another, revealing the fundamental wrinkle in any discussion about the future of podcasts on TV: It’s a medium, not single genre.“There’s a spread of genre that makes this a little hard to talk about efficiently,” journalist Quah says.The scripted drama–turned–prestige TV Homecoming is a very different beast than the two true-crime podcasts, even if Dirty John turned from non-fiction to scripted when Bravo dramatized it. There are also improvisational comedy podcasts like Comedy Bang Bang and My Brother My Brother and Me, both of which did their audio counterparts proud on TV (and both of which continue in podcast form, though not on television). Then there are the talk shows-with-a-twist, like Desus Mero and even Bill Simmons’ Any Given Wednesday (to a certain extent), which launched as a result of the hosts’ popular podcasts.There are even more TV adaptations in the works: Crimetown, a non-fiction podcast about corruption in Providence, Rhode Island, is coming to FX, as is the spooky Welcome to the Night Vale. Fantastically popular podcast Serial is getting an HBO documentary, The Case Against Adnan Syed (pictured above), but a scripted television adaptation of the murder-mystery by The LEGO Movie’s Chris Lord and Phil Miller has been in development hell since 2015. Limetown, a scripted horror podcast, will hit Facebook Watch and star Jessica Biel.Some of these shows will be good certainly. Others, maybe not so much. That they began their lives as podcasts doesn’t give them an inherent advantage or disadvantage over any other type of adaptation, aside from maybe being more buzzworthy than other series.“Isn’t it the story that’s more crucial? You wouldn’t say books make good movies — it depends on the book,” Homecoming’s Bloomberg says.Podcasts have a lot of things going for them: They’re cheap to make, generally flexible productions to undertake, and can connect with large audiences in an intimate way. They’re not a guarantee for success on TV, but the right podcast with the right creative team can, ideally, become something new — something that’s more than just a podcast with pictures.“The fundamental thing,” Quah says, “is to create something native to the experience.” Who Could Be Nominated For the Best Director Oscar?Quentin Tarantino, Bong Joon-ho and more these are the directors who already have a shot at the Oscar.Posted by The Rotten Tomatoes Channel on Friday, September 20, 2019Continuing with our Ridiculously Early Oscar Predictions series, we move on to the visionaries who occupy the director s chair.
