Season 2 premieres July 20 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 8 hours (for the first season)Thumbnail image: Netflix, Apple TV+, Freeform/Art StreiberOn an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News. The nominations for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards were announced Tuesday morning, and many of the categories went just as the pundits had predicted. Plenty of noms for Watchmen? Yep, it got more than any other title. Lots of love for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel? The show will have 20 chances to win come September. Ozark is also now officially – as it was expected to be this year – an Emmys favorite.Of course, along with the expected came the shocks – and there seemed to be more of them than usual as Leslie Jones, Laverne Cox, Josh Gad, and Tatiana Maslany read out the names. Acting locks like Bob Odenkirk for Better Call Saul or Russell Crowe for The Loudest Voice missed out on nominations, while critically favored genre shows like The Mandalorian and What We Do In the Shadows snatched up spots in the Outstanding Drama and Comedy Series categories, respectively. And then there was Zendaya s surprise nom for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series – a surprise that, frankly, we saw coming.Read on for our full list of snubs and surprises then let us know which nomination – or lack thereof – had you spit-taking your cereal Tuesday morning.SURPRISE: Anthony Anderson and Don Cheadle Defy Odds(Photo by ABC/Ali Goldstein; Nicole Wilder/Showtime)Both Anderson (black-ish) and Cheadle (Black Monday) were on the cusp when it came to odds-on favorites in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category. The surprise here is that the black-ish and Black Monday stars both landed nominations, leading to one of the biggest snubs of the morning SNUB: Larry David Left Out, Though Curb Your Enthusiasm Recognized(Photo by HBO)Curb Your Enthusiasm landed a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, but series star David found himself locked out of the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category. Season 10 of the show is Certified Fresh at 95% on the Tomatometer, and, as the series’ centerpiece, the credit due would normally be given to six-time nominee David.SURPRISE: Tracee Ellis Ross Lands Her Fourth Comedy Lead Actress Nomination(Photo by ABC/Mitch Haaseth)Ross’ nomination on Tuesday makes her a four-time nominee in the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category for her role as Rainbow Johnson on black-ish. She was previously nominated in 2016, 2017, and 2018, but has not won in the category. Pamela Adlon (Better Things), Merritt Wever (Run), Awkwafina (Nora From Queens), Elle Fanning (The Great), Kristen Bell (The Good Place), and Zoë Kravitz (High Fidelity) are among the actresses who were thought to have better odds of landing the nomination.SNUB: Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn Overlooked for Better Call Saul(Photo by Greg Lewis/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)Though Better Call Saul was recognized in the Outstanding Drama Series category, outrage over Odenkirk and Seehorn’s exclusion in the nominations quickly rippled across social media. Odenkirk lost the Lead Actor in a Drama Series nomination to surprise nominee Steve Carell (The Morning Show), while Seehorn, who was not a favorite to win a nomination, saw unexpected nominees Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve) and Samira Wiley (The Handmaid s Tale) take spots in the Supporting Actress category instead.SURPRISE: Zendaya May Have Been a Surprise for Some…(Photo by Eddy Chen/HBO)Rotten Tomatoes bet on Zendaya as Lead Actress in a Drama for her expert turn as Rue Bennett in Euphoria. The young star trailed previous winners in the category Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid s Tale) and Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) in odds for a nomination, but prevailed.SURPRISE: What We Do in the Shadows Sucks Up a Nomination for Top Comedy Series(Photo by Russ Martin/©FX)FX vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows was another long shot for a nomination that Rotten Tomatoes bet on. With 100/1 odds on Gold Derby, the comedy spoiled the chances of so many other titles, including Better Things, Run, The Great, Modern Family, and more.SNUB: Ramy Loses Out to the Bloodsuckers for Comedy Series(Photo by Craig Blankenhorn/Hulu)Among those knocked out of contention by What We Do in the Shadows’ surprise showing, Ramy was a top-10 favorite to win a nomination in the category. The series’ star Ramy Youssef did land nominations for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and for Directing for a Comedy Series, however.SURPRISE: The Mandalorian Lands Best Drama Series Nod(Photo by Disney+)Rotten Tomatoes argued for drama–adventure–space opera series The Mandalorian to win all the awards for its moving introduction to the cutest Star Wars hero ever, but it still came as a huge surprise that enough Television Academy voters would feel the same and give the series an unexpected spot in the Best Drama Series nominations. Pose, The Morning Show, Big Little Lies, This Is Us, The Outsider, Euphoria, and Homeland were all seen as favorites ahead of The Mandalorian, which ended the day tied with Schitt’s Creek and Saturday Night Live with 15 nominations each, behind only Watchmen, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Ozark, and Succession. Even though he can’t talk, can Baby Yoda still present an award in September?Snub: Three Strikes and Reese Is Out(Photo by Apple TV+)Well, we officially live in a world in which Reese Witherspoon can star in three prestige series in a single year and not get a single Emmy nomination for her efforts. Witherspoon was considered, if not a shoo-in, than a highly likely contender for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for FX’s drama Little Fires Everywhere, but failed to get a nod; her co-star Kerry Washington was among the five nominees, though. Elsewhere, Witherspoon was an outside chance for an upset in the Lead Actress Drama category for Apple TV+’s The Morning Show and for HBO’s Big Little Lies, the latter of which she was nominated for in 2017 when it was categorized as a “limited series.” She was recognized for neither role this year, but Morning Show co-star Jennifer Aniston is among those still in the game for Lead Actress come September.SNUB: Academy Goes Quiet on Russell Crowe’s Loudest Voice (Photo by Saeed Adyani/Netflix)On paper, Showtime’s Fox News–focused limited series looked like the kind of thing that would sweep the Emmys: A topical series about TV co-created by the director of Spotlight and starring Russell Crowe and Naomi Watts? Start engraving those statuettes! And yet, when it premiered in mid 2019, critics were decidedly mixed on what was seen as a pretty shallow read of a complex workplace story. One thing no one was mixed on, though, was Crowe’s portrayal of late Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, which was described as a triumph and reason enough to tune in. Yet, a year after the series began, it seems voters mostly forgot about the Gladiator star’s work, with fresh faces Jeremy Pope (Hollywood) and Paul Mescal (Normal People) edging Crowe out of the category.SURPRISE: Octavia Spencer Is In, the Unbelievable Duo Is Out(Photo by Netflix)Another category full of surprises was Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie, where Merritt Wever and Kaitlyn Dever were expected to be nominated for their work in Netflix’s acclaimed Unbelievable. (Toni Collette received a nod for her supporting work in the limited series.) With Wever and Dever missing out, the doors opened for Unorthodox’s Shira Haas – not a huge shock, she was always considered a strong chance – and Spencer for Self Made. While Spencer’s work as Madam C.J. Walker, the country’s first African American self-made millionaire, has been heralded by critics, the series itself was considered just a minor success, scoring 68% on the Tomatometer. Going into nominations morning, Spencer’s odds in the category were 100/1 over at Gold Derby. Her nomination makes this one of several categories where Black nominees make up the majority of nominations: in this case, Spencer is joined by Regina King (Watchmen) and Kerry Washington (Little Fires Everywhere).SNUB: The Morning Show and Pose Pushed Aside for Killing Eve(Photo by Apple TV+)Despite airing its weakest season yet, according to the Tomatometer, spy thriller Killing Eve managed to scrape into the Outstanding Drama list, pushing aside more favored titles like Apple TV+’s splashy The Morning Show and FX’s groundbreaking Pose. The former, starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, was never a critical darling, but star power and a strong awards campaign were expected to give it an edge; the latter is one of the most celebrated series on TV, coming off a 97% Certified Fresh second season. It was a good morning for Killing Eve overall, with both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer earning lead actress nods and Fiona Shaw picking up a nom for her supporting work.SURPRISE: Hollywood’s Jeremy Pope Outpaces El Camino’s Aaron Paul(Photo by Saeed Adyani/Netflix)As noted above, the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie category produced some of the biggest shocks of the morning. Not only was Russell Crowe left off the list, but Paul missed out for his return to Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad sequel movie, El Camino. Into those voids stepped Broadway star Pope, whom critics cited as a standout in the Ryan Murphy–produced Hollywood, about the Golden Age of America’s movie industry. Pope played screenwriter Archie Coleman in the series, which imagined an old-school Hollywood in which a major studio cast a Black actress in the lead role for a big-budget production. In 2019, Pope became just the sixth person ever to be nominated for Tony awards in two separate categories in the one year, for his work in Choir Boy and Ain’t Too Proud to Beg.SURPRISE: Steve Carrell Misses Out for Space Force, But Launches Into the Drama Big Leagues(Photo by Netflix)Prior to Tuesday morning, many thought Carell’s best chance of Emmy love lied with Space Force, but Netflix’s big-budget comedy went mostly unnoticed by the Academy and Carell missed out. His consolation prize: a surprise nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for The Morning Show, in which he plays the lecherous and newly unemployed breakfast TV host Mitch Kessler. Gold Derby’s experts had Carell at 100/1 odds for the category. No doubt fans of Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk are furious right now.SNUB: Better Things and Creator and Star Pamela Adlon(Photo by Suzanne Tenner/FX)Largely considered one the best comedies on TV, FX’s Better Things is coming off two 100% Fresh seasons. Its star, Adlon, writes and directs every single episode. (At least every episode since season 1.) Sheer degree of difficulty would suggest that Adlon would be among the nominees this morning for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and the show recognized overall, and many felt it was its time. And yet, Better Things scored not one single nomination. It may not be the most headline-grabbing snub, but it s perhaps the one that hits hardest.Thumbnail image: Disney+
(Photo by new Line Cinema/ courtesy Everett Collection)All Jackie Chan Movies RankedConsidering how often Jackie Chan movie titles were changed on their journey to America, it s understandable to be confused going through his films – even after you ve watched them. Like, did Operation Condor 2 come out before the first Operation Condor? Is Supercop actually part of the Police Story franchise? How many new Police Stories are there, anyways? This is alleviated by the fact that you could just throw your hands up and pick a random Jackie Chan movie from the 80s and, chances are, it s gonna be pretty dang good. Police Story and Police Story 2 were made during this decade (and have been added to The Criterion Collection), along with Project A, Project A2, and Armour of God – all representing an explosive debut of a relentless entertainer willing to leap off buildings, hang on the sides of fast-moving vehicles, avoiding heavy lethal objects at the last second, and do just about every punishing stunt conceivable for our enjoyment.And the batting average for Jackie Chan movies in the 90s is nothing to scoff at either. This was the era that brought him international fame, starting with 1995 s Rumble in the Bronx, which led to more eyes on previous films, like Legend of the Drunken Master, and the projects that followed, like Supercop. And Chan resurrected the buddy action/comedy with Owen Wilson in Shanghai Noon, and Chris Tucker in Rush Hour, where people to this day are still hoping for a third sequel. (Fun fact: Rotten Tomatoes founder Senh Duong was inspired to create the site after an inconvenient night searching for reviews on movies like First Strike and Who Am I?. So no Jackie Chan, no Rotten Tomatoes. And then where would we be? The dark ages, that s where.)After a string of mediocre big-budget Hollywood affairs (The Tuxedo, The Medallion, and The Spy Next Door among them), Chan has mainly been working in China, continuing to produce, direct, and explore more dramatic roles. And with Rumble in the Bronx celebrating the 25th anniversary of its American release, we re taking a look back (stretching first, so as to not hurt ourselves) on every Jackie Chan movie and ranking them by Tomatometer!亚博论坛网站这是一款奇幻色彩的3D仙侠手游。游戏主要讲述玩家扮演的角色被贬下凡谪仙人，为了重返仙界而努力修炼成仙的故事。精美3D画面如入仙境，操作简单，你将化身一名盖世豪侠，相遇各路英豪，PK对战，给你一个真实刺激的战场。引人入胜的趣味情节，角色扮演的游戏将为您带来无比畅快的真实体验。
Reeves was always listed as an executive producer of The Continental. In the beginning, Starz President of Programming Carmi Zlotnick teased possible appearances by John Wick himself. The period piece element of the new take rules that out.“Because we’re way back in time, way back pre-John Wick and even pre-young John Wick, that character is not finding his way into the universe,” Beggs said. “We are in the John Wick universe, but it’s way back in time. Think about the Game of Thrones prequels before you know any of the players, but you do know the world.”5. REEVES AND STAHELSKI ARE STILL INVOLVEDReeves remains an executive producer, as does Stahelski. Stahelski had hoped to direct the Continental pilot, but that, too, seems no longer to be the case, with two more sequels on the way.“Keanu and Chad have read every draft and been enthusiastic supporters of expanding this universe in a meaningful way,” Beggs said. “At this point he’s pretty busy making his movies which are very important to us.”6. EXPECT AT LEAST THREE SEASONS OF STORYJohn Wick has already generated at least five films, and Stahelski was confident he and Leitch had ideas for multiple seasons on Starz too.“I think we haven’t even touched on The Continental,” Stahelski said. “That would be my comment on that. I think we have at least three seasons of TV.”Hopefully, that still holds true for a young Winston series.7. THE IDEA ONLY BEGAN AFTER JOHN WICK 2(Photo by David Lee/©Summit Entertainment)While the creators were focused on making movies for a while, after the success of John Wick: Chapter 2, Lionsgate and Starz presented the possibility to expand the franchise into the television realm as well.“The studio approached us after the second movie did fairly well that they said they were interested in pursuing something like that, which we were happy to oblige,” Stahelski confirmed.The world of The Continental seems so deep, you’d think they had a rich history mapped out before going into the films. It actually didn’t even start to ramp up until the sequel.“When we finished the first one, we thought we’d never work again,” Stahelski said. “We were looking for day jobs. Then when we were asked to do the second one, that’s when we put the thinking caps on. We did what we wanted to and what we had in mind for the first movie. It wasn’t until developing the second film that all the thought really went into it.”8. THANK LIONSGATE FOR ACQUIRING STARZ(Photo by © Summit Entertainment)Lionsgate paid .4 billion for the cable network in a sale completed in December 2016. A series based on the Lionsgate film franchise is an example of synergy between the companies, and Starz couldn’t be happier.“I think it’s important to note that that comes through our relationship with Lionsgate,” Zlotnick said in 2018. “It continues a franchise that has already generated two hit films which have grossed nearly 0 million at the worldwide box office.”9. THE CONTINENTAL RETAINS THE JOHN WICK CREATIVE TEAMChris Collins was originally set to write and run The Continental series for Starz, and Beggs mentioned taking new pitches in the Deadline interview. Executive producers from the John Wick films remain involved beyond Reeves and Stahelski. The films’ producer Basil Iwanyk and screenwriter Derek Kolstad are both executive producers.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.

(Photo by Warner Bros/ Everett Collection)DCEU Ranked: DC Movies By TomatometerAfter a long-running Superman series with Christopher Reeve in the iconic tights and cape (and one more with Brandon Routh), and compelling takes on Batman on both sides of the millennium, Warner Bros. put the reset on their DC Comics movies and created the DC Extended Universe. The first in this new constellation of comic book cinema was 2013 s Man of Steel, which took audiences back through the beefy boy from Krypton s origins and his blossoming into the protector of mankind. The super-serious tone and dismissal of some of Superman s key characteristics put off some, but this new take was bold enough to keep modern cynical audiences intrigued.Inevitably, comparisons were incessant to the rival Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially as director Zack Snyder doubled down on the dourness with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In this day and age, fans on the internet expect an all-access pass on the production of their favorite properties, including leaks, rumors, and sneaky on-set photos. The publicly aired dirty laundry of the troubled Suicide Squad shoot colored audience perception of the film before it even released. It also wasn t very good.Wonder Woman, with its fleet touch and storytelling pizzazz, would become the first beacon of light for the DCEU, and its first Certified Fresh hit. Justice League followed that year, cramming huge characters into a truncated runtime (not to mention tonally inconsistent reshoots by Joss Whedon, and Henry Cavill s phantom mustache), leading to rallying cries online of a fabled Snyder Cut of the movie.It d be more than a year later for the next DCEU entry: 2018 s Aquaman. Directed by James Wan, if the film wasn t exactly drowning in critical praise, it at last was enough to keep the audiences worldwide satisfied and optimistic for the future. That paid off with Shazam!, a superhero comedy in the more classic vein, one that doesn t bend over backwards to connect with the larger DC Universe. It worked there and with Birds of Prey, featuring. Wonder Woman 1984 didn t quite continue the streak, but The Suicide Squad has become among the franchise s best-reviewed. See where how they all play out as we rank all DC Extended Universe movies!

7.70.6 7月喜迎Another Sundance Film Festival is done and dusted and it s been unlike any other previous year. With several high dollar acquisitions – Amazon alone spent nearly million on new titles – much of what we saw in Utah will make its way to theaters this year. If you have been following along with our Sundance Scorecard, which shows Tomatometer scores for any Sundance title that got one after 5 reviews, you ll notice critics were loving Shia LaBeouf’s Honey Boy, Jennifer Kent’s Babadook follow-up The Nightingale, Lulu Wang’s Awkwafina-led dramedy The Farewell, and Mindy Kaling s Late Night. Only four of the 2018 Sundance films made it to the Oscars this year, but chances are we will be talking about at least one of the actors from the 2019 slate come awards time next year. And if the Academy doesn’t nominate one of our favorites? We might still be talking about it anyway (*cough* Toni Collette was robbed).Park City is the place for established stars to break from their typecast molds and give us something completely new. Pete Davidson, Armie Hammer, Awkwafina, and Octavia Spencer shook things up at this year s festival, while veterans like Emma Thompson reminded us of why we love them. These are our favorite performances from Sundance 2019.Awkwafina, Aoi Mizuhara, Diana Lin, Shuzhen Zhou in The Farewell (2019) 97%(Photo by Courtesy the Sundance Institute)In The Farewell, Awkwafina takes her first dramatic turn and although the Crazy Rich Asians star feared she wouldn t be able cry on cue, her muted performance repeatedly brought us to tears. The premise – a family organizes a fake wedding to gather everyone together following the grandmother’s terminal diagnosis (which she does not know about) – is tailor made for tearjerking dramedy, and Lulu Wang’s feature debut had critics laughing through their sobs. Awkwafina plays the ‘straight man,’ while the rest of the cast provides the laughs: Mizuhara as an trepidatious Japanese bride, Lin as a stern Chinese-American mother, and Zhou as the energetic grandmother oblivious to her family s trickery. We enjoyed the men of The Farewell, too, but the women – especially Zhou – give the film its humor and heart.Octavia Spencer in Luce (2019) 90%(Photo by JA/Everett Collection)In Luce, a former African child soldier turned model U.S. student is cast in an entirely new light when he submits a disturbing essay for a school project and his teacher, played by Spencer, deputizes herself as the one to discover the truth – by any means necessary. Spencer manifests the weight of cultural expectations in the role of her career. The taut physiological drama, adapted from J.C. Lee s play, places the weight of African-American ascension upon the shoulders of our eponymous lead and as the woman who chooses to spar with him, Spencer is defiant and vulnerable. She shares scenes with Kelvin Harrison Jr. (as Luce) involving thought-provocative dialogue that pose complex questions about race and expectations, and offers few simplistic answers. Is Spencer s Miss Wilson a dedicated teacher raising valid concerns after troubling warning signs? Or is she an overbearing self-appointed investigator desperately trying to find evidence to support her pre-determinations? We left Luce unable to say one way or the other, but convinced this was an exceptional addition to an already impressive career for Spencer.Geraldine Viswanathan in Hala (2019) 86%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Parrish Lewis)After the Blockers premiere in April 18 at SXSW we expected great things from Geraldine Viswanathan. The hands-down standout from the teen sex comedy, Viswanathan headed to Park City in the title role of Minhal Baig’s debut film Hala, the intimate story of a teenage girl who is struggling to find balance as a Pakistani teen living in America raised in a strict Muslim household. Viswanathan once again shows her comedic chops as the sarcastic first-generation immigrant, but also thrives when placed squarely against her competing ideologies. In the seams of both is where her character eventually finds herself. The film s portrayal of a teen struggling with her disapproving mother, played against an exploration of sex, art, and religion, is not exactly groundbreaking, but it is refreshing to see it from a Muslim teenager s perspective. Viswanathan s acting and Baig s semi-autobiographical script give life and authenticity to a character we don’t often see represented on screen.Lupita Nyong’o in Little Monsters (2019) 79%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Ben King)Between this and Us, Lupita Nyong’o is going all in for horror in 2019. In Little Monsters, she plays a school teacher at an Australian elementary school who is on a field trip when a military accident unleashes a horde of zombies; she and the slacker uncle of one of her students are the only adults who can protect the kids against the brain-eaters. Trapped in a farm-themed amusement park with a wannabe musician and a degenerate children’s television host (Josh Gad), Nyong’o is the emotional anchor and heart of the film. This Aussie Shaun of the Dead fashions Nyong o as a mix of that film s Shaun and Walking Dead favorite Michonne’s badassness, and the Black Panther actress shows off some spectacular zombie-slaying and ukulele-playing skills: trust us when we say “Shake It Off” will never sound the same again.Jillian Bell and Utkarsh Ambudkar Brittany Runs a Marathon (2019) 88%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Jon Pack)Brittany ran the marathon, but Jillian Bell stole the show. Ever since the first season of Workaholics, we have been cracking up from the comedienne’s antics and broad humor. Bell gives a star-making performance as Brittany, an overweight twentysomething who gets a wake-up call when a bogus doctor’s visit to score Adderall results in warnings about her health and wellbeing. With every mile she runs in preparation for the New York Marathon, we watch Britanny make herself over, and by the end, all of us are ready to cheer her to the finish line. While training for the marathon, she meets Jern, played by Utkarsh Ambudkar, and while we don’t want to give too much away, the verbal sparring between these two provides some of the biggest laughs in the film. Not saying that everyone will run a marathon after watching it, but plenty will want to give it a try.Noah Jupe in Honey Boy (2019) 94%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Natasha Braier)Noah Jupe has quietly become one of the most acclaimed child actors in Hollywood. At only 13, he has starred in two bona fide hits (A Quiet Place and Wonder) and racked up stellar reviews for his work. Honey Boy is about to take him to the next level. Shia LaBeouf’s semi-autobiographical retelling of his tumultuous childhood has the young Brit playing LaBeouf in his formative years, while Boy Erased actor Lucas Hedges plays the adult version in Alma Har el s first narrative feature. Hedges provides the contemporary context, but much of the narrative rests entirely on Jupe’s teenaged shoulders – and he goes toe-to-toe with LaBeouf, who plays a version of his own father. More than a vanity project, Honey Boy is a smart and candid depiction of a former child star’s bad behavior and damaged childhood with an incredibly gifted young performer at its center.Emma Thompson in Late Night (2019) 79%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Emily Aragones)Dame Emma Thompson as a highbrow late-night talk show host is the kind of genius casting that you didn’t know you needed in your life. Screenwriter and co-star Mindy Kaling said that she wrote Thompson’s part as a piece of fan fiction, and the result is a Dame Emma fangirl’s dream come true. Witty, sarcastic, brilliant – the British thespian here is part Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada, part David Letterman. Kaling plays the wide-eyed new writer who desperately wants to win her boss’s affection, and Thompson s constant dismissal of her eternal cheerfulness is side-splittingly funny. More than just an ‘Iron Lady,’ Thompson also shows signs of tenderness behind the derision in this uncynical crowdpleaser. Sold to Amazon for a whopping million, Late Night looks to run The Big Sick’s playbook to similar box office success and maybe some award buzz for our Dame.Pete Davidson in Big Time Adolescence (2019) 85%(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute )It’s fair to say going into Sundance that we did not think that SNL s Pete Davidson would make this list. But in Big Time Adolescence, Davidson plays the worst version of his assumed identity and shows real range. Another tale of arrested development, Big Time Adolescence is about a drug-addled man child – Davidson s Zeke – who befriends the only person who still thinks he’s cool, his ex-girlfriend’s teenage brother. Picture James Franco’s Daniel from Freaks and Geeks with tattoos, dyed blonde hair, and less charm. The predictable antics ensue, and his young protégé Mo (Griffin Glick) begins to see the cracks in the bravado and realizes that Zeke’s laid-back persona is just a mask for his perpetual f up status. Davidson is a brilliant comedic actor, and his timing is never off beat in the kind of role that Saturday Night Live players have often used to catapult to superstardom. Charismatic, hilarious, and at times painful to watch, the actor shows what he is capable of doing and we re intrigued to see what he does next.Armie Hammer in Wounds (2019) 47%Of all the big departure performances at this year’s festival, Armie Hammer’s turn in Wounds was the most dramatic. In Babak Anvari’s follow-up to Under the Shadow, Hammer plays Will, an apathetic alcoholic bartender who picks up a lost cellphone, unlocks it, and gets his life changed forever. In really gnarly ways. Light years away from anything else he’s done, Hammer is a hulking, sweaty, paranoid mess in this genuinely terrifying horror thriller. At 69% on the Tomatometer, reactions to the film have been mixed overall, but praise for Hammer has been universal. His first dip into horror sees the Call Me By Your Name star creeping everyone out and ditching his dreamboat persona for cockroaches and gore.
What would you compare the movie to?“It’s like a southern-fried Richard Curtis movie. It’s Gothic, Actually.” Tom Beasley, Flickering Myth“Kind of Mars Attacks! as done by Cormac McCarthy” Ryan Lattanzio, IndieWire“Like a weird religious lovechild of 2012 s The Place Beyond The Pines and 2013 s Prisoners.” Callum Crumlish, Daily ExpressHow is author Donald Ray Pollock as a narrator?“Pollock brings a pleasing, smoky rasp of weary authority. He knows these venal, murderous, craven characters pretty well.” Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune“While an omniscient narrator does feature in the source material, here it feels heavy-handed and distracting, and ends up giving the final film an unintended comic element that isn’t quite in keeping with the deathly dark happenings on screen.” Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies“The result feels less like a worthy tribute to Pollock’s sanguinary prose than an odd, slightly irksome blend of movie and audio book.” Dan Jolin, Empire Magazine(Photo by Glen Wilson/Netflix)What about the killer on-screen ensemble cast?“It’s worth seeing for an intriguingly cast ensemble, authenticating the milieu as much as possible.” Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune“Though there are no individual standouts in the cast, they all turn in intensely committed work that tethers us to their characters’ snowballing predicaments.” Courtney Howard, Fresh Fiction“A film that often feels like a sort of young actors’ Olympics; a baroque showcase for Gen-Z refugees of the industry’s biggest franchises to showcase their indie bona fides.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly“Every actor blends into the woodsy atmosphere with a sense of unease that permeates the air. No stars here, all character actors in service of the film’s unsettling calling.” Hope Madden, Columbus Underground“While the acting is all very good, there are moments when the cast members look bewildered, as if asking themselves how the heck their agents landed them in this gig.” Deirdre Molumby, entertainment.ieHow is Tom Holland? “The best thing to come out of the movie is seeing Tom Holland in a new light.” Deirdre Molumby, entertainment.ie“It’s a very different role for Holland to his energetic, peppy Peter Parker, but he brings a discomfort and a sadness to the character that fits him like a glove.” Tom Beasley, Flickering Myth“It s maybe most gratifying to see Holland so far from Peter Parker mode; his performance is delicately underplayed.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly“It is also Holland who is the most compelling to watch…because of the subdued intensity he lends to the character. He goes from placid and contained to explosively violent in what seems like seconds.” Gabriella Geisinger“Holland is perfectly withdrawn and quiet for so much of the film that when he is driven to action, it’s shocking and unexpected. He’s a combination of angst, guilt and barely contained rage.” Steve Prokopy, Third Coast Review “Arvin is made even more complex by Holland s guile and intrinsic internalization. He is heartbreaking, show-stopping, and entirely fantastic. His best performance yet. Callum Crumlish, Daily Express“Holland, sadly, doesn’t impress…[he] just isn’t right for this role. He seems too fresh, too clean to play such a haunted, violent character.” Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm (Photo by Glen Wilson/Netflix)And what about Robert Pattinson?“Pattinson’s turn as pedophile preacher Preston Teagardin is the obvious highlight.” Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies“Pattinson delivers another striking, film-stealing supporting turn with a hear-it-to-believe-it high-pitched Southern twang.” Matt Maytum, Total Film“For Pattinson, playing a domineering Bible Belt sleaze is a cred move (a sign that he doesn’t have to be liked), and he does a good job of it.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety“Only Pattinson evinces an understanding that irony may be the one workable option after earnest excellence has been ruled out…of all the stupendously bad accent work on display here, only his is as funny as it should be.” Charles Bramesco, The Playlist“Pattinson is clearly having a blast, giving one of the weirdest damn performances of his career…I thought it fit the often surreal tone of the film perfectly. Or maybe I just like watching Pattinson ham it up.” Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm“Then there s Robert Pattinson, whose genteel southern accent is more miss than hit, but whose skeeviness is palpable through the screen.” Gabriella Geisinger“I don’t really know what he’s doing here, besides taking a little too long with every line reading.” Michael Phillips, Chicago TribuneAny other standout performances?“Riley Keough, too, is a standout, adding layers and depth to a character who could easily have been a one-note sexpot caricature.” Tom Beasley, Flickering Myth“The film’s most stirring turns come from two young and gifted actresses [Mia Wasikowska and Eliza Scanlen] handed barely more than 10 minutes of screen time apiece.” Ryan Lattanzio, IndieWire(Photo by Glen Wilson/Netflix)Are there any other positive elements?“Campos and cinematographer Lol Crawley do a superb job of creating an ominous atmosphere, as if despair and tragedy are lurking around every small-town street corner, down every stretch of country road.” Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times“Credit should be given for a predictably excellent period soundtrack chosen by music supervisors Randall Poster and Meghan Currier.” John DeFore, Hollywood ReporterIs it too much movie?“If you stick with the lax pace, the slow-burn reveals are worth the wait.” Gabriella Geisinger“You can t say it doesn t keep you on your toes…But it s a long movie, clocking in at 140 minutes, and there are several points at which it drags.” Deirdre Molumby, entertainment.ie“There are times when the movie threatens to lose focus, but for the most part, this train keeps chugging on down the rickety tracks to its blood-soaked conclusion.” Tom Beasley, Flickering Myth“[Campos’] greatest feat may be that he was able to wrangle a story as ripe and unwieldy as Devil at all…and somehow still managing to land on the grim side of fascinating.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly“Like so many characters in this glum, shaggy ramble of a film, Campos gets lost in the woods.” Charles Bramesco, The Playlist(Photo by Glen Wilson/Netflix)Is the timing right for The Devil All the Time?“The Devil All the Time feel[s] like a movie tailor-made for the current hellscape we’re all trapped in.” Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm“It’s 2020. We’re already familiar with abject misery.” Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionThe Devil All the Time is available to stream on Netflix from September 16, 2020.
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 new roles for Lady Gaga, Oscar Isaac, Rachel Weisz, and Benedict Cumberbatch.This WEEK S TOP STORYSPIDER-VERSE 2 JOINS BLACK PANTHER 2 IN 2022(Photo by @SpiderVerse)Marvel Studios put on a big panel at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer about their Phase 4, but the dates were only specific to 2020 and 2021. Since then, Marvel has also announced a release date of May 6, 2022 for Black Panther 2, but today s late-breaking news is painting an image of 2022 that promises an ambitious slate comparable to that of 2019. Sony Pictures has confirmed plans for a second animated movie starring the Miles Morales version of the web-crawler as seen in last year s Academy Award winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The Spider-Verse sequel is now scheduled for April 8, 2022, just shy of a month before Black Panther 2 on May 6, 2022. Although they re not yet dated, the other Marvel movies that could potentially be scheduled for 2022 are the Blade reboot starring Mahershala Ali and the Fantastic Four movie mentioned at San Diego Comic-Con, which would finally bring Stan Lee s original Marvel super team into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On top of that, today s announcement that director Peyton Reed is returning for Ant-Man 3 could mean that movie is also a candidate to appear on Marvel s slate for 2022. As for what we might see in Spider-Verse 2, the final scenes of the first movie did hint at both Spider-Man 2099 and the finger-pointing Spider-Man 67. Other Top Headlines1. GAME OF THRONES SHOWRUNNERS DEPART STAR WARS (Photo by Steve Granitz/Getty Images)A week full of Game of Thrones news actually got started with movie news tangentially related to HBO s hit series. One of the biggest stories of 2018 had been the announcement in February of that Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were developing a new trilogy of Star Wars movies (at the time thought to possibly be in the Knights of the Old Republic video game setting). The announcement was warmly received by fans, but that was also over a year before those fans (and critics) actually saw the final season of Game of Thrones. Citing an interest in focusing on their new deal with Netflix, Benioff and Weiss this week departed their planned Star Wars trilogy. Many writers are interpreting their departure as fitting a Lucasfilm narrative that also included the previous departures from other Star Wars projects by Josh Trank (Boba Fett: A Star Wars Story), Colin Trevorrow (Star Wars Episode IX), and the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Solo: A Star Wars Story). One thing we also heard this week is that Benioff and Weiss trilogy may have pre-dated Knights of the Old Republic entirely, instead telling the origin stories for Jedi Knights themselves. Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Pictures reportedly are still planning on releasing a Star Wars movie in December of 2022 but it s not yet known what it will be.2. LADY GAGA TO PORTRAY GUCCI WIDOW IN FIRST ROLE POST-A STAR IS BORN(Photo by Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/Getty Images)Very often, after movies like last year s A Star is Born attains the level of that film s box office and critical acclaim, the film s perceived breakout star tends to land a new movie (if not several) fairly quickly. That said, we didn t hear about a new movie for Lady Gaga until this week, as she is now attached to star in an untitled film to be directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Blade Runner, Alien) about the 1995 assassination of Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of fashion icon Guccio Gucci. Lady Gaga will star as Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci who in 1998 was convicted of conspiring in his murder. Ridley Scott s wife Giannina Facio Scott is producing the film, which will be adapted from the book, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed. Scott s next film is still expected to be The Last Duel, a historical drama starring Matt Damon, Adam Driver, and Ben Affleck.3. DISCO KINGS BEE GEES LEGACY STAYIN ALIVE WITH THEIR OWN MUSICAL MOVIE (Photo by Steve Schapiro/Getty Images)After last year s Queen musical biopic Bohemian Rhapsody tremendously overperformed with a global box office total of over 0 million, Hollywood went all-in on musical biopics. Producer Graham King, who was one of those behind Bohemian Rhapsody, is now teaming up with Paramount Pictures to develop a similar film about the careers and lives of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb, also known as the Bee Gees. The involvement of Paramount Pictures is especially of interest here because Paramount was the studio behind the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever, the disco-era movie that featured some of the Bee Gees biggest hits. Paramount has purchased the life rights to the entire Gibb family estate (presumably including fourth brother Andy Gibb), and will be able to use all of their classic songs in the film.4. OSCAR ISAAC TO STAR IN PAUL SCHRADER S LATEST AS THE CARD COUNTER(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/Netflix)Following a few films that were not so well received, director (and Taxi Driver screenwriter) Paul Schrader arguably had something of a comeback hit last year with First Reformed, the critically acclaimed religious drama starring Ethan Hawke. Next up, Schrader will be teaming up with Oscar Isaac for a gambling drama called The Card Counter, in which Isaac will play a professional gambler who attempts to reform a young man seeking revenge on a mutual enemy from their past. Isaac wasn t the only Star Wars: The Last Jedi star to get a new role this week, though, as Kelly Marie Tran ( Rose ) also joined the voice cast of The Croods 2 (12/23/2020) as the third new star in the sequel after the previously announced Peter Dinklage and Leslie Mann.5. ANDREW GARFIELD JOINS LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA S TICK, TICK BOOM!(Photo by Merrick Morton/©Columbia Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)The world is still waiting on any indication that we will ever get a Hamilton movie, but its creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is definitely staying busy with other projects. The long-in-development movie version of Miranda s musical play In the Heights is coming out next summer (6/26/2020), and Miranda is also co-starring in HBO s His Dark Materials soon. Amidst all of these projects and developments, one landmark that Lin-Manuel Miranda has not yet had is his own directorial debut, but that s going to happen soon with a high profile Netflix project based on the Off-Broadway play tick, tick BOOM! The autobiographical play was written by Jonathan Larson, the creator of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Rent. The lead role will be portrayed by Andrew Garfield, who, despite starring in a number of acclaimed projects from The Social Network to Martin Scorsese s Silence, is probably still best known as the star of the two Amazing Spider-Man movies that came out between Tobey Maguire s and Tom Holland s stints as the character.6. BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, JODIE FOSTER, AND SHAILENE WOODLEY TO CO-STAR IN PRISONER 760 (Photo by Jason Smith, Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)The American Film Market is about to start in Santa Monica this coming Wednesday, which means that we re starting to hear about new star-driven movies that will be sold to the various movers and shakers at AFM. One such project, co-produced by the BBC, is a drama called Prisoner 760, which will star French actor Tahar Rahim as Mohamedou Oul Slahi, a Mauritanian who found himself detained at Guantánamo Bay for over 14 years. Rahim will be supported in Prisoner 760 by Benedict Cumberbatch (as a military prosecutor), and both Jodie Foster and Shailene Woodley as his defense legal team. Prisoner 760 will be directed by Kevin MacDonald, who won an Academy Award for the documentary One Day in September, and who was also BAFTA-nominated for Touching the Void, The Last King of Scotland, and the documentary Marley.7. DISNEY REMAKING A CHRISTMAS CAROL AS A NEW MUSICAL CALLED MARLEY (Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection)Speaking of Marley,, which was a biographical documentary about the famed reggae star, we learned this week that there will be a new musical also called Marley (although the similarities almost certainly end right there). Instead, this Marley will be a new interpretation of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol by Walt Disney Pictures with a new focus on Ebenezer Scrooge s deceased business partner Jacob Marley. It s not yet known if that means we ll be getting a prequel when Marley was still alive, or if this will maybe be a musical set in the afterlife, like say, Beetlejuice (although the latter does seem more likely, based on reports this week). Marley will continue the relationship between Walt Disney Pictures and director Bill Condon, whose 2017 live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast earned over .263 billion worldwide for the studio (making it the #2 movie of 2017, just after Star Wars: The Last Jedi).
For starters, there are two areas where Episode IX is not looking like a champion. One is with critics who have been decidedly mixed on the film resulting in a 57% on the Tomatometer; the second-lowest of the nine-episode Saga ahead of just The Phantom Menace (53%.) The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi are amongst the top four with 93% 91%, respectively. Another that may buck the trend of Star Wars history is the direct performance of the sequels. The box office per each trilogy has followed a pretty specific pattern. The first film is a major blockbuster. The 1977 original became the highest-grossing film of all-time up until 1982’s E.T.. The Phantom Menace in 1999 was second only to Titanic on the all-time scale and The Force Awakens still currently holds the crown for the #1 film in domestic box office history. The second film in each trilogy then dipped. The Empire Strikes Back made 31.9% less. Attack of the Clones 34.6% and The Last Jedi 33.8%. But then Return of the Jedi made million more and Revenge of the Sith made million more. The Rise of Skywalker has already begun with a disadvantage opening with 5 million compared to The Last Jedi’s 0 million start.But then consider where The Rise of Skywalker already has staked out in lists. It is the 12th highest opening in history (and the 3rd highest in December behind the previous two Star Wars.) It had the 5th best total in Thursday previews with million behind Episodes VII VIII as well as the final Avengers and Harry Potter films and 6th highest Friday opening ever (which includes Thurs previews) with Infinity War being in that mix. Word-of-mouth will now determine if those rankings remain consistent the next few weeks. That film’s 10-day total was the 4th best at the time (7th best currently), it still has the 4th best 17- -24-day total ever and remains the 8th highest-grossing domestic film of all-time and 13th all-time worldwide with .33 billion.The Rise of Skywalker should hit the billion mark. (It is over 4 million worldwide in 3.5 days.) Rogue One opened to 5 million and reached 0 million so that milestone right now is also likely to make ROS just the 15th film ever to achieve that goal. They’ve already achieved that globally. 0 million is likely the goal Disney and Lucasfilm would have wanted to hit domestically, but that now seems quite out of reach. The Last Jedi was down to .7 million in its 4th weekend and that could be the one (Jan. 10-12, 2020) where ROS relinquishes its #1 spot to perhaps the expansion of Sam Mendes’ WWI film, 1917.Rotten Returns: Eldritch Horror Cats Scratched At Box OfficeAfter months of sniping at its first trailer and a week of critical lambasting, Tom Hooper’s adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats (.5 million) appears to be an immediate bust. Conservatively the film is budgeted at million to as much as million (the number could be even higher) so any single digit opening is going to cause concern for those who bankrolled it. They may be looking at those who ponied up the million to make The Greatest Showman two years ago when it started with just an .8 million opening weekend after a .5 million lead-in from its Wednesday Christmas opening. They certainly sighed relief when it went on to gross over 4 million. Hooper’s backers may be coughing up hairballs. Cats does not likely have a 19x multiple. That is just a ,923 per-theater-average which puts it in the category of From Justin to Kelly (,357 PTA) and Newsies (,008 PTA). The Greatest Showman also had just a ,929 PTA that opening weekend, but word-of-mouth boosted that number and it did not dip lower until its eighth week. Sweeney Todd and 2004’s The Phantom of the Opera managed to get themselves over million, so maybe there is still a Christmas miracle for the critically-lambasted (19%) effort, even as a goof or a dare. Either way, we are likely to not see a big-screen version of Starlight Express anytime soon.The Top 10 and Beyond: Jumanji Softening, Bombshell Near-BombsIn these times as one should expect moviegoers do not exactly want a mix of politics with their eggnog. Last year’s Vice made over million, but that was bolstered a bit by its awards run and was ultimately more then than now. Despite lining up critically with Vice’s 66%, the 65%-rated Bombshell did not turn too many heads in theaters this weekend. Starting with million and expanding into 1,480 theaters, Jay Roach’s film about the sexual harassment scandal at Fox News, made .8 million. That is just a ,429 per-theater-average compared to Vice’s ,181 in 2,442 theaters in its first weekend. But that was also after its .9 million three day headstart opening on Christmas through Dec. 27. Bombshell debuted with a solid 9,157 in four theaters last week but could fade much faster than Adam McKay’s film.Last week’s short-lived #1, Jumanji: The Next Level, became the 23rd film to open in December and gross 0 million in its first ten days. Marley and Me is the only film on that list to fail to reach 0 million. (It grossed 3.15 million.) On the other hand Marley (which was a Christmas Day release) grossed .26 million in its second weekend. The Next Level fell 56% to million which is the second lowest on that list of 23. The only December films since 1985 to gross less than million in their second weekend and reach 0 million were 2005’s King Kong and Alvin and the Chipmunks. So it is possible Jumanji is fading faster than we may have expected. It is up to 2 million worldwide.Disney’s Frozen II rose to over 6 million this weekend. That is the 18th best total ever after 31 days of release and is still million ahead of the pace of all-time November opening champ, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, in that period and had a fifth weekend around million better. So with solid daily numbers over the Christmas vacation

Oscars 2020 Red Carpet Arrivals It's Hollywood's biggest night: See the celebrities and artists who hit the red carpet at this year's Academy Awards! by RT Staff | February 9, 2020 | Comments
Critics are certainly showing their appreciation for action flick Nobody, lifting the movie to a Certified Fresh Tomatometer score of 80%. That’s an improvement over Ilya Naishuller’s debut film, Hardcore Henry (52%) from 2015. Nobody also bested that film’s opening (.1 million in 3,015 theaters) with an estimated .7 million in 2,460 theaters with limited capacity. (Tom Jerry opened in 2,475 theaters.) That’s the third-best opening of the year to date behind only the family entries of T J and Raya and the Last Dragon. Is this the first good sign that adults (hopefully of the vaccinated variety) are headed back into theaters? The Little Things opened to .7 million on the last weekend in January , while also available on HBO Max. Last summer’s attempt to reopen with Russell Crowe in Unhinged netted a million wide release (1,823 theaters); the movie then slowly made its way to million. It’s going to be interesting to chart the progression of Nobody as new wide releases enter the marketplace almost every week going forward.The Top Ten And Beyond: Raya Holds On As The Courier Expands(Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)After three weeks at number 1, Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon dropped to second place, falling 32% to .5 million for a total of .4 million to date. The year’s top grosser fell to third place, as Tom Jerry took in another .5 million for a total of .1 million. That makes it the 11th-highest-grossing film since the beginning of 2020 and the fourth-highest since the pandemic behind only Tenet, The Croods: A New Age, and Wonder Woman 1984; the latter two are still in the top 10 with The Croods sequel still creeping up on Tenet’s total.After four weeks, the long-delayed Chaos Walking has crept over the million mark after opening to .77 million. That’s a feat unattained by fellow wide March releases that opened between .5-4 million: Slither, Missing In Action II: The Beginning, Boat Trip, Unsane, 3 Strikes, Amos Andrew, and Pride.The Benedict Cumberbatch spy thriller, The Courier, added 208 theaters and fell 48% but still grossed another .04 million for a total of .48 million. That makes it the 32nd highest-grossing release in Roadside Attractions’ history, which – all things considered – is not too shabby. Especially when it will take less than just another million for it to join the company’s top 25.These Dates In Box Office History: Milestones for Logan, Rango, Horton Hears A Who! 在针对手游化改进这个方面，从上次的测试来看，EVE手游给出了一套全新的新手指引。对比起原来简单到可以忽略的新手教程，这套指引可以算得上简单易懂，至少在面对EVE这么庞大的操作系统的时候，只要乖乖走一遍新手教程，玩家们不至于会对后面的内容无从下手。
Bad Boys for Life achieved two milestones this weekend. One of them was becoming the top-grossing film in the series, passing Bad Boys II’s 8 million. The second is more impressive: Until this weekend, Paul Blart: Mall Cop was the top-grossing January film of all-time with 6.3 million; in just 17 days, Bad Boys for Life took that record, eclipsing every other true January release ever with its total (so far) of 8.05 million. Though in the “for every action there is an opposite reaction” file, a new release this week set an abysmal new record for a release of its type.King of the Crop: Bad Boys For Life Officially the Biggest January Movie EverBad Boys for Life has left all of its January competitors in the rearview mirror, so we must go to the all-time lists to chart its progress going forward. At present time, the third film in the franchise is ahead of the pace of the second film in Mission: Impossible franchise (believe it or not, still the highest-grossing in that series), which had 5.7 million after 17 days, while grossing .2 million in its third weekend. The Bad Boys are up to 8.05 million with .68 million this weekend. The Will Smith/Martin Lawrence movie is also ahead of The Mummy Returns, which had 6.4 million at this point in its theatrical life, but a .4 million third weekend. While both were summer releases (and M:I2 opened on a Wednesday), Bad Boys is still doing midweek numbers close to or exceeding those films, giving it a legit shot at reaching the 0 million line and becoming the seventh Will Smith movie to do so. The film has also grossed over 4 million worldwide to date. Bad Boys II topped out at 3 million.
