bob真人官网采用百度引擎2(Baidu 9)Doom Patrol season 2 new addition Abigail Shapiro has injected a little heart and a little horror into dark, wacky, and super-violent HBO Max/DC Universe series so far. Shapiro plays Niles Caulder’s (Timothy Dalton) peculiar young daughter Dorothy Spinner.While it s one thing to have an 11-year-old child running around Doom Manor, it s a whole other issue to learn that this kid has a set of powerful imaginary friends who can cause some serious damage — one fiery bloke, in particular, can bring on the apocalypse at a moment s notice. And with each episode this season, world-ending monster The Candlemaker has continued to grow stronger.Spoiler alert: This article discusses plot details of Doom Patrol episode 208, Dad Patrol. Stop here if you haven t watched the episode. Niles has tried his best to keep his daughter sheltered from the world, while also sheltering all of humanity from her supremely dangerous potential. Now Dorothy is growing up, which causes Niles a lot of anxiety —  a universal experience all parents can relate to really.As the episodes have progressed, we ve watched Dorothy piece together the truth about her experience living under Danny the Street and her father s true motivations in keeping her there. But as much as Niles has worked to keep Dorothy a child forever, the girl s desire to be taken seriously (along with that pesky getting older thing) has made her father s fear an inevitable reality.(Photo by DC Universe)The majority of the story that plays out in Thursday s episode, Dad Patrol, is setting up this tragedy to take place. Niles wants to put Dorothy back into captivity.  And Dorothy, who experienced getting her first period earlier in the episode, decides it s best not to tell her father. She s growing up. And while a trip to the carnival gives them a fun daddy-daughter day away from it all, no one can keep Dorothy from maturing. Not even Niles.Rotten Tomatoes had the opportunity to speak with Shapiro about Thursday s Dad Patrol episode. During our chat, the 20-year-old actress discussed the challenges she faced while wearing prosthetics, the fractured trust issues Dorothy has with her father, and the impact The Candlemaker s arrival will potentially have on the series moving forward. Considering the fact that Doom Patrol is the actress s first-ever television role, her perspective of Dorothy s growth — and the fear that comes with it — adds a welcome sense of clarity and humor to the girl s challenging journey.(Photo by Photography: Emily Assiran; Hair/Makeup: Chelsea Gehr)Aaron Pruner for Rotten Tomatoes: I want to start this off by talking about the possible challenges you faced as a 20-year-old woman playing an 11-year-old girl.Abigail Shapiro: It wasn t actually too much of a challenge because I m very small. And I look pretty young for my age. I ve been playing kids for a very long time. So it wasn t something that was very new to me. Also, when you re that young you don t think of yourself as a little kid, you kind of think you re already grown up. So I tried to put myself in that mindset and let my inner freedom child run free.Dorothy s a little girl but she s also roughly 175-years-old. So there is an element of maturity, but also a yearning to hold on to her childlike wonder. Was that a fun dynamic to play?Shapiro: Yeah, definitely. She s been kept away for so long, so she really hasn t seen much of the world. Her growing up has kind of been put on hold for all of these decades if you think about it. And I don t think she actually started to grow up until the minute they saved her out of the dark. That s the first time in years she actually got a glimpse of the world and something other than Danny and her dad, occasionally.(Photo by Mark Hill/ 2019 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved.)Since you re covered in makeup, did you find your facial expressions stifled? Because the emotionality of the character really comes across a lot more through the use of her voice. Did you find that to be the case when working to bring Dorothy to life?Shapiro: Yeah, I focused on it a bit more actually. My sister, I was rehearsing with her, my younger sister Milly Shapiro (Hereditary). She helps me with a lot of my work. I was rehearsing with her and she was like, You really need to focus on your voice acting because your face movements are going to be compromised. And I was like, you re right. So it s because of her I really started to focus on that a little bit more.Was it a lengthy application process?Shapiro: The process took about three hours in the beginning, and then we got it down to two hours. And I wear a prosthetic chin, nose, and lips, a little bit of the cheeks, the forehead, then the fake hair and I wear the fake teeth. And actually, the fake teeth were the most difficult part because I had to do the British accent and my diction was already compromised from wearing these giant fake teeth. So that was the biggest challenge with the process.(Photo by DC Universe)You mentioned Danny the Street, earlier. In episode 4, Sex Patrol, Dorothy learns he wasn t just her friend but also the prison that held her captive all these years. Was that the moment she started really listening to this darker voice, The Candlemaker, in her head?Shapiro: I think so, definitely. She s been trapped away for so long and she lived underneath Danny for decades and she s only heard the parties going on. She s never been able to actually go. So actually going to a Danny party and seeing everything makes her realize that she s been trapped for so long and hasn t had the chance to experience the world and everyone who she thought cared about her were not the people who she thought they were. She basically realizes her father doesn t want her to grow up; no one really does. And she has been unable to experience anything. It s the moment she realizes that the world isn t all rainbows and daisies. You have to experience the darker sides of the world, too, in order to grow up. And she s never experienced the darker sides of the world. I think she starts to listen to The Candlemaker because she no longer really trusts everyone around her, completely, as a child would.Still, Danny the Street represented friendship and safety to Dorothy. What do you think The Candlemaker represents to her?Shapiro: The Candlemaker, I think, represents the parts of herself that she doesn t like. Her inner demons. And throughout the season, especially in episode 8, she learns that she needs to actually face her inner demons in order to embrace them and ultimately grow up, because it isn t until your face these inner demons and the parts of yourself that you don t like that you can really take control of your life and build your own path and grow up.(Photo by DC Universe)There s a pivotal scene in this week s episode where Dorothy is in a gas station and experiences her first real puberty moment. It feels like this is a shocking instance where she is being forced to confront herself and her body for the first time, and acknowledge she can t stop herself from maturing into a young woman.Shapiro: Yeah, she gets a period. And she doesn t really know what a period is. It s kind of like her Carrie White moment.That s a great way of putting it.Shapiro: And it s the moment she realizes that she s growing up whether she likes it or not. She can t stop it, it s inevitable. And she can t be who everyone wants her to be. She can only be who she wants to be. But it s that moment of panicking of like, Oh my god, I m no longer the same person. I am no longer a little girl. What s going to happen? Like, what will the future hold? It s that kind of situation that s saying, like, OK, you re growing up! You re grown up now! And it s just slapping her in the face.That said, there is a lovely interaction between her and the woman in the gas station who ultimately helps her. After the constant protection and sheltering Niles has put her through, and the, sort of, lessons of not trusting those in the world, this woman pr

With Thanos (Josh Brolin) presumably neutralized at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, it will be time to introduce a new Big Bad for the surviving members of the team to confront in two-to-four years time. And if Marvel Studios continues to import things from the comics, it is possible that character will appear in an Endgame stinger scene, much the same way Thanos flashed his winning smile at the conclusion of the first Avengers film.Considering the studio has trained us so well to anticipate the next big thing before the current story’s end, let’s take a look at some potential foes the Avengers — in what ever form they take after Endgame — may face. Some may be familiar faces while others are only possible thanks to Disney s purchase of 20th Century Fox. But all would be formidable foes in Phase 4.Baron Mordo(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)First Comic Book Appearance: Strange Tales #111First MCU Appearance: Doctor StrangeBig Bad Potential: Like Loki (Tom Hiddleston) before him, Mordo could emerge as a much larger player in the MCU thanks to the talents of actor Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mordo’s brand of binary justice. Those sorts of characters inevitably clash with funky teams like the Avengers. As seen in the Doctor Strange post-credit scene, he has determined the mystic arts corrupt all who use them and that he must eliminate all remaining sorcerers. Of course, that suggests he will come after Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) sooner than later, like in the Doctor Strange sequel. But complete defeat may not be in his future and his use of the Living Tribunal’s staff may lead him to amass more power to further to his cause. At that point, he would be an Avengers-level opponent.(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)First Comic Book Appearance: Journey Into Mystery #101First MCU Appearance: Thor: RagnarokBig Bad Potential: Continuing with the Loki theory of Big Bads emerging from established antagonists, Hela (Cate Blanchett) is a worthy adversary for the team — particularly if Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is not around to help them defeat her. She’s an accomplished fighter who wiped out the Warriors Three and most of the Asgardian defense forces with hardly a sweat. She is also powerful enough to destroy Mjolnir. Of course, there is one pesky problem with this potential Big Bad: she’s dead. Killed by Surtur during the final battle in Asgard, she would seemingly be unavailable. But then, consider the way the gods of Asgard experience death and rebirth. Loki regularly cheats death and he’s but a mere trickster. She is the god of death, and presumably has a say in how long she rests in peace outside the nine realms.Considering it took destroying one of those realms to stop her last time, the Avengers would need a lot of extra strength to even hold her in a stalemate.Doctor Doom(Photo by @ 20th Century Fox )First Comic Book Appearance: Fantastic Four #5First MCU Appearance: N/A, but he has debuted three times in three different attempts at starting a Fantastic Four film series.Big Bad Potential: With Disney’s recent purchase of the 20th Century Fox film studio, the film rights to The Fantastic Four revert to Marvel. And even though Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said they will not use the X-Men for a long time, that does not mean there isn’t room for one of the greatest Marvel villains to make his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For instance, there is a Doctor Doom film script written by Legion executive producer Noah Hawley while Fox was still in control of the character. Hawley even recently said that Feige asked about the script in the run-up to the Disney/Fox deal closing. He described the story as a something of a political thriller with Doom already established as the ruler of Latveria. Which would make him a markedly different threat than any other that the Avengers have faced. What do you do when your enemy is not only a world leader, but one beloved by his people? The team would have to fight a war of perception as much as fight with their powers. And that s a pretty appealing reason to integrate the character into the MCU, even if the other former Fox-controlled properties sit on the bench.Fin Fang Foom And/Or The Mandarin(Photo by @ Marvel Comics, Strange Tales #89)First Comic Book Appearance: Strange Tales #89 (Foom), Tales of Suspense #50 (The Mandarin)First MCU Appearance: N/A, though an image of Foom appears in Iron Man. Trevor Slattery (Ben Kingsley) and Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) both claimed to be the Mandarin in Iron Man 3, but as the Marvel One-Shot released with the film on Blu-ray revealed, the true Mandarin has yet to be seen.Big Bad Potential: Predating Marvel Comics superheroes by a handful of years, Foom was one of the monsters created by Jack Kirby and he is just a delight to behold. Initially presented as a dragon of Chinese legend, Foom was later revealed to be an alien shapeshifter after he was finally integrated into the Marvel Universe in the 1970s. While the rest of his alien brethren set out to conquer the world early in human history, Foom, as the navigator of their starship, laid dormant for centuries. Eventually, his ship was discovered by a man who stole 10 sophisticated control rings from the ship and set himself up as The Mandarin. Foom eventually woke up and caused plenty of trouble for superheroes across the planet.The Mandarin entered MCU history in Iron Man 3 while the Ten Rings debuted as a terrorist organization in the first Iron Man film. But Foom represents a much larger threat should a defeated Mandarin awaken him from his long slumber to challenge the Avengers. It is the kind of villain team-up we ve always wanted to see. But it also implies the Mandarin is a foe worthy of the team s attention. We re already convinced he will be the villain in Shang-Chi, so it is entirely possible he will pose a worldwide threat in the not-too distant future. Provided, of course, Marvel wants a more human Big Bad with a pet dragon.Adam Warlock(Photo by @ Marvel Comics, The Infinity Watch #1)First Comic Book Appearance: Fantastic Four #66-67 (as “Him”), Marvel Premiere #1 (as Adam Warlock)First MCU Appearance: The cocoon seen at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is probably a gestating Adam Warlock. He was supposed to appear in the film at one point.Big Bad Potential: Hear us out. While typically presented as a protagonist, Adam Warlock has made some questionable choices in the pages of Marvel Comics, particularly when in possession of the Infinity Stones. And presuming the Infinity Stones are not destroyed by the conclusion of Endgame, it is possible he will end up with them and attempt to purge the universe of evil, as he once attempted to purge the evil within his own soul, creating a version of himself known as the Magus, in the comics. The consequences on a universal scale could be disastrous. And perhaps, unlike Thanos, this change will be initially imperceptible to our heroes. It would be something of a slow burn for the overall MCU film series, which may be a nice change of pace after Endgame.The Celestials(Photo by Chuck Zlotnick/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures/courtesy Everett Collection)First Comic Book Appearance: Eternals #2First MCU Appearance: Guardians of the GalaxyBig Bad Potential: Thanos has set the precedent for Big Bads in the MCU, but there is always the possibility for Marvel Studios to go bigger. How does one go bigger than the Mad Titan? Well, there are the Celestials. These are beings of immense power. One is shown wielding the Power Stone when Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) visit the Collector (Benicio Del Toro) in Guardians of the Galaxy. Peter’s own father Ego (Kurt Russell) lists himself as a member of the cosmic-level race.Back in the comics, the Celestials are a key component of the Marvel Universe’s secret origin. They went from planet to planet creating beings like the Eternals — soon to be featured in their own Marvel Studios film — Deviants, and others. Their tinkering led to the Skrull ability to shapeshift and, ultimately, the appearance of superheroes on Earth.Though humanoid, they tend to appear around 2,000 feet tall to human eyes. And in the pages of Marvel Comics, they are said to be indestructible, with the few who have been defeated instantly regenerating. That power may make them too absurd of an opponent for the Avengers, but then again, Ego was defeated and Knowhere, the space port where the Collector kept his collection, is said to be the skull of a dead Celestial. So while they may be more vulnerable in the MCU, just one of their number would post quite a challenge to the Avengers.Galactus(Photo by © Marvel Comics, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #6)First Comic Book Appearance: Fantastic Four #48First MCU Appearance: N/A, though he did make an appearance as an alien death cloud in Fox’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.Big Bad Potential: If there is one certainty in big budget studio filmmaking, it is this: Galactus will be a MCU Big Bad in the fullness of time. It is only a matter of when.One of the early cosmic-level entities devised by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, Galactus famously came to Earth to consume all its energies to satiate his enormous appetite. But in a curious twist, this does not make him inherently evil. Like all sentient life in the universe, he must consume other life to survive. Unfortunately for the rest of us, he exists on such a massive scale that a planet like Earth is a good dinner. This definitely sets him apart from Thanos as the Avengers — and likely the Fantastic Four — would have to weigh their consciences between stopping him and respecting the right for such a being to survive. Also, as with his comic book appearances, the heroes will have to come up with a pretty clever reason for him to skip his Earth-sized meal.But will all of that compel Feige to steer a MCU Galactus toward Earth in the near-future? That remains to be seen. As with the X-Men, Galactus may be a character not included in the five-year plan the studio will reveal after the release of Endgame. At the same time, he is the sort of character who could be seeded as early as Endgame’s stinger scenes and lay in wait, like Thanos, across the span of six years. As we said before, Galactus is an eventuality.Like this? Subscribe to our newsletter and get more features, news, and guides in your inbox every week.

4.22.5 5月喜迎(Photo by Amazon Prime)Podcasts are invading the TV medium in earnest with adaptations of top series dropping across broadcast and streaming — and even more on the way.It used to be that the only way to experience a hit podcast was to pop in your earbuds. But now, it’s just as easy to plop yourself down on the couch and turn on the TV. Three podcast adaptations made their television debuts in November 2018 alone — Amazon’s Homecoming, Bravo’s Dirty John, and Oxygen’s Up and Vanished. The first two are now up for Golden Globe awards on Sunday for best drama series and best performance by and actress in a TV drama (Julia Roberts) for Homecoming and best actress in a limited series or TV movie for Connie Britton s Dirty John performance.Though the three shows are hardly the first podcasts to make the jump to TV, they do seem to be indicative of the growing trend.“This year was a big pivotal moment because you had very aggressive formal interest from television and film studios, as well as coordinated and formalized attempts by podcast companies to build that pipeline,” explains Nicholas Quah, a journalist who covers podcasts and writes a newsletter about the industry, Hot Pod. Quah credits one outlet in particular, Gimlet Media, for jumpstarting the adaptation process. The ambitious company’s non-fiction, real-time account of its founding, Startup, became the ABC sitcom Alex Inc., starring Zach Braff.While the saccharine ABC comedy was quickly canceled (its 40% Tomatometer score reflects its critical appeal), the company’s second attempt has been a resounding success. The Julia Roberts–starring Amazon Prime Video series Homecoming, based on the fiction podcast of the same name, is Certified Fresh with a glowing 98% Tomatometer score. That these two podcasts from the same company had such drastically different fates once they reached the small screen speaks to how variable the podcast-to-TV trend is.Good podcasts don’t inherently make great TV. There are some things that podcasts can do that TV can’t, and the reverse is certainly true as well. Rotten Tomatoes spoke to the creators of all three of November’s shows to learn about what went into adapting these podcasts, and what that means for the future.Homecoming’s New Televised HomeEven as a podcast, something about Homecoming always felt cinematic. The scripted radio drama, a psychological thriller about a facility whose purported mission of helping returning veterans transition to civilian life might mask something more nefarious, featured top-tier talent from the start. Actors Catherine Keener and Oscar Isaac voiced main characters, and the dialogue-driven script resembled the flow of a TV show or film. It was a natural fit for television, and many of its characteristics stayed the same when it jumped mediums. The podcast’s creators and writers, Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg, oversaw the TV show as well, with Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail executive producing and directing. There were some changes, though, like a new, possibly even more star-studded cast (Julia Roberts!), and the whole “adding visuals” thing.“In the podcast, we really had complete control of information, the questions, and the scope of the story,” Horowitz tells Rotten Tomatoes, noting how the audio-only version of the story didn’t have room for background details or questions. If a character didn’t mention something, it didn’t exist. On a TV show, though, the way objects are arranged on a character’s desk can be telling.“In the podcast, the whole world is based on voices and ambient tones and when people are speaking to another person,” Bloomberg adds. “When you go to script format or visual, there’s a way to communicate stuff faster and more precise when you can see it.”He cites the opening of the Amazon show’s fourth episode, a wordless montage of a drug manufacturing process, as a prime example.“That’s the type of communication that is totally unavailable to the podcast,” he says,” [that] you get so much story from in this two- or three-minute scene.”Then again, there are other things a podcast does that a television show can’t.“Audio offers this real immediacy and authenticity and connection with the characters,” Horowitz says. “You can really sink into these conversations and listen to the way you would any conversation. Television, I don’t think, has that. There’s a greater sense of artifice, a greater sense of separation between you and it.”Horowitz and Bloomberg say they were both focused on making a story that was right for the specific medium when working on both versions of the show. Neither is “the definitive” version, they say. Some people will like both, some might prefer the podcast, and others, like Bloomberg’s mom, will prefer the show.“My mom couldn’t listen to the podcast,” Bloomberg recalls. “She was bored to tears by it, but she watched the show all in one sitting, got to the end, and was crying. I think they offer different people different stuff, so I think they’re both great in different ways.”Dirty John Gets the Bravo TreatmentDirty John, now approaching its series finale, is a different sort of adaptation than Homecoming. Bravo’s series dramatizes the popular true-crime podcast from the Los Angeles Times, which followed the exploits of John Meehan, a serial liar who conned his way into a dangerous, abusive relationship with well-off Orange County designer Debra Newell.Bravo’s scripted dramatization casts Eric Bana and Connie Britton as the main characters, and retells the story with an uncanny mix of ridiculousness and creepiness. It’s akin to a ripped-from-the-headlines version of Desperate Housewives, which makes sense, given that one of t
It s often difficult to make a film based on true events particularly tragic true events and walk the delicate line between earnest dramatic retelling and outright misfortune porn. The story of Brian Banks, subject of this week s appropriately titled Brian Banks, is sad but ultimately hopeful, and critics say it mostly works. Banks, played in the film by Aldis Hodge, was a rising football star from Long Beach, CA who was committed to attend USC when a classmate falsely accused him of rape during his junior year of high school. Banks ended up serving six years in prison for a crime he did not commit before he was released, the film recounts how he worked with the California Innocence Project to secure his freedom and restore his honor. While the story itself is infuriating and unbelievable, critics say Brian Banks could have delved a little deeper into the complex issues that ultimately lay at the heart of Banks conviction, and it never quite reaches the inspirational heights it aims for. But it is a thoughtful portrayal that nevertheless sheds some light on a serious topic and offers some hope in the process.

s take control of the ship before he can crash it and Kryze learns a vital piece of information about the Darksaber: Gideon has it.Though she would like to keep Djarin by her side, she tells him a Jedi called Ahsoka Tano can be found in the city of Calodan on the planet Corvus.Bo-Katan Kryze Is the Heiress of Mandalore(Photo by Cartoon Network/Lucasfilm)While an action-filled episode with a number of laughs, the story-altering info revolves around Bo-Katan Kryze and the nature of mainstream Mandalorian culture. After first appearing on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the character returned in Star Wars Rebels. In both animated series, she was voiced by Sackhoff, so having her play the part in live action is both welcome and a very specific nod to the stories Dave Filoni and his team told about Mandalorians on those shows.During the Clone Wars, Bo-Katan was a member of the terrorist organization known as the Death Watch, while her sister Satine ruled Mandalore as its duchess. At that time, Satine advocated a more pacifistic stance for the people, but Bo-Katan wanted to embrace the Mandalorian warrior culture of a bygone era. Unfortunately, all of their idealistic notions were undone when Darth Maul used the tension between Mandalore and the Death Watch to take control of the planet. He also executed Satine.Eventually, the Old Republic took notice of Mandalore s plight and launched an invasion. After the battle, Bo-Katan was left as the planet s regent, but was soon deposed when the Empire came to secure the planet. Twenty-odd years later, Bo-Katan came into possession of the Darksaber, assumed the title of Mand alor, and vowed to take back the planet from the Empire.(Photo by Disney+/Lucasfilm Ltd.)Nearly a decade later, it seems Bo-Katan is still fighting to get her planet back. And, along the way, she lost the Darksaber. As she noted to the Imperial commander, she needs the Darksaber to legitimately rule Mandalore. This is the Way, you see.As it happens, Bo-Katan s Way differs a great deal from Djarin s. For one thing: she can remove her helmet. This is consistent with all of the Mandos seen in Filoni s animated shows. Thus, it is now clear the Way of the Mandalore is not a prevailing notion among mainstream Mando society. Instead, as Bo-Katan notes, it is the Way of the Children of the Watch, a group of religious zealots dedicated to re-establishing an even more ancient Mandalorian society than the one she espoused in her youth.Curiously, it seems the Children of the Watch are distinct from the Death Watch despite seeing the latter group s insigna in Djarin s flashbacks to the Clone Wars last season. Of course, it is possible former members of the Death Watch joined the Fighting Corps who rescued Djarin and adopted the Way of the Mandalore.Nonetheless, all of this history and Bo-Katan s search for the Darksaber suggests the true liberation of Mandalore is in the series future. Considering Filoni s involvement with The Mandalorian, it is only a matter of time before his on-going story threads join up with Djarin s wanderings.(Photo by ©Warner Bros./Courtesy Everett Collection; Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage)And that brings us to Ahsoka Tano. From the moment Favreau revealed Filoni s involvement with the show, it was only a matter of time before the character found her way to the series. This is the Way of Filoni, you see. But we found it interesting that Bo-Katan referred to her as a Jedi. The character quit the order sometime before the establishment of the Empire. And though she led the Republic s siege of Mandalore — and captured Maul — she remained outside of the Jedi strictures into the Galactic Civil War era. The last time we saw her, in Rebels closing moments, she was setting out to find Rebels main character Ezra Bridger shortly after the Battle of Endor alongside Mandalorian Sabine Wren.We doubt Ahsoka s ongoing tale will have much impact on The Mandalorian this season — although a live action Sabine would be welcome — but it will be interesting to see if she makes any mention of her own quest should she debut next week. We re cautiously optimistic we ll see her, but considering the way Boba Fett (Temeura Morrison) was teased in the season premiere, it is possible Ahsoka (reportedly set to be played by Rosario Dawson) will wait in the wings a bit longer.Questioning The Way: Helmets Off for Din Djarin?(Photo by Disney+/Lucasfilm Ltd.)Bo-Katan Kryze s pronouncements about Mandalorian society left us with a number of questions which feel particularly resonant to the future of The Mandalorian. If its scope truly does expand to a Game of Thrones level, then these issues will need to be addressed.Will Djarin Take His Helmet Off? With his own tribe scattered, it is possible Djarin will find a home with the Nite Owls. If that is the case, he will be free to remove his helmet. After the events of this episode, it seems clear Bo-Katan will vouch for him as a true Mandalorian while freeing him of the more restrictive Way. But as any former adherent to a faith will tell you, letting go of ways ingrained as a child is not easy. This may actually form a long-term character arc for Djarin as he learns the Way of the Mandalore is not absolute. Considering the Way serves as emotional beskar for the orphaned traveler, seeing him share his face with another living being could represent true growth for the character.(Photo by Disney+/Lucasfilm Ltd.)Is Gideon a Mandalorian? Since we still don t know much about the Moff — according to Esposito, revelations about the character will have to wait until season 3 — we can t let go of the sneaking suspicion he was the Fighting Corps or Death Watch member who rescued Djarin in the waning days of the Clone Wars. Such a thing would make him a very Star Wars–style Dark Father. Also, his interest in Mandalorian weapons may be more than a personal fascination. Has he been planning to take Mandalore for himself as a new base for the Imperial Remnant?But then, why was he so interested in the Child?Is Mandalore a Cursed Planet? Until his meeting with Kryze, Djarin was under the impression Mandalore was a cursed planet offering only death to its visitors. Bo-Katan maintained a more positive view, which leaves us to wonder what Djarin will find when he inevitably ends up there. Since Kryze is still trying to mount a liberation effort four or five years after the Battle of Endor, we re inclined to believe it is still under some sort of Imperial control. Or, perhaps, those in change of the planet have turned isolationist and spread the rumors of death and destruction to heal from their own traumas. But one thing seems clear: Djarin s path will eventually take him there whether or not he reunites the Child with his own people.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.
2. HALLOWEEN KILLS IN 2020, AND HALLOWEEN ENDS IN 2021 Ryan FujitaniFollowing the 9 million domestic box office of last year s soft reboot of Halloween (Certified Fresh at 79%), Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions quickly confirmed plans for at least one more Halloween sequel. More recently, it was confirmed first that Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning, and that actually it would be two sequels that will be filming back-to-back. This week, Universal and Blumhouse made it official by announcing that the sequels will be titled Halloween Kills (10/16/2020) and Halloween Ends (10/15/2021). Both sequels will have the same director, David Gordon Green, who co-wrote them with actor Danny McBride, who also co-wrote last year s Halloween with Green.3. BEN AFFLECK AND MATT DAMON TO REUNITE FOR RIDLEY SCOTT S THE LAST DUEL (Photo by Sara Cozolino/Everett Collection)Before he directed films like Alien, Blade Runner, and Gladiator, Ridley Scott made his directorial debut in 1977 with The Duellists, about French officers during the Napoleonic Wars engaged in a series of duels in the early 1800s. Things came full circle this week with the news that Scott is now attached to direct The Last Duel, which is set in 14th century France (the distinction here is that The Last Duel concerns a medieval trial-by-combat between knights). The Last Duel will also be a reunion project for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who will co-star and co-write (along with Nicole Holofcener). This week, Damon also signed on to star in an independent drama called Stillwater, which will also be set in France.4. WALKING DEAD SPINOFF MOVIE GETS THEATRICAL RELEASE(Photo by AMC)When Andrew Lincoln s Rick Grimes got on a helicopter last year and flew away from The Walking Dead, it was quickly announced that AMC had plans for a series of spinoff movies about the continuing adventures of Rick Grimes. At San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, the first teaser trailer for a Walking Dead movie debuted, but the biggest surprise had nothing to do with new plot twists. Instead, the surprise was that Universal Pictures has picked up the Walking Dead movie for theatrical distribution (i.e. not just as an AMC movie). The plan is still for three movies starring Andrew Lincoln, with Lincoln expected to spend two months on each movie. Andrew Lincoln also signed on this week to join Naomi Watts in Penguin Bloom, playing Watts husband as their family befriends an injured Australian magpie chick (bird).5. JAVIER BARDEM EXPECTED TO PLAY KING TRITON IN THE LITTLE MERMAID (Photo by ©Warner Bros.)Following the casting earlier this month of Halle Bailey as Ariel in Disney s live action remake of The Little Mermaid, fans quickly began speculating about who might play her father, King Triton. Most fans picked black actors, with Idris Elba being a popular choice, but some also chose Terry Crews. As it turns out, Disney instead went with Academy Award-winning Spanish actor Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Skyfall, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales). In the original animated movie, King Triton does not have his own song (he does have one in the stage musical called The World Above ), so it s probably likely that Bardem won t be singing in the live-action version either.6. BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH TO PORTRAY BRITISH ARTIST LOUIS WAIN(Photo by Jack English/© Weinstein Co.)The Cassius Marcellus Coolidge painting series Dogs Playing Poker is something of an iconic example of American kitsch. Around the same time in England, however, the artist Louis Wain had a similar series of paintings of cats that frequently had Big Eyes (a la Keane), exaggerated toothy smiles, or early examples of psychedelic art. It s crazy stuff, and now Benedict Cumberbatch (whose Doctor Strange also dabbled in psychedelia) is signed to star in the biopic Louis Wain for Amazon Studios. Cumberbatch s co-stars will include Claire Foy, Toby Jones, and Andrea Riseborough.7. HOPEFULLY JENNIFER LAWRENCE WON T GET STITCHES AS THE MOB GIRL(Photo by 20th Century Fox)Now that Dark Phoenix (Rotten at 23%) is done and over with, Jennifer Lawrence s time in the X-Men franchise is officially done, leaving her with no ongoing franchise (since The Hunger Games ended in 2015, and last year s Red Sparrow was a non-starter). It may well be that Lawrence will soon find another, but for now, she appears to be aiming for smaller movies. With that in mind, Jennifer Lawrence is now attached to star in Mob Girl, based on Teresa Carpenter s novel which was itself based on the true story of 1970s and 1980s mob informant Arlyne Weiss-Brickman. Mob Girl will reportedly depict how Weiss-Brickman grew up around wise guys, including running errands for them, but decided to cooperate with the FBI after a loan shark threatened to harm her teenage daughter. (Jennifer Lawrence is only 28 years old, so her daughter may be younger in this movie version.)8. CHRIS ROCK S SAW SPINOFF BUMPED UP FIVE MONTHS TO BE A BIG SUMMER RELEASE (Photo by Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images)One factor (besides, you know, all the torture) that has united all movies in the Saw franchise to date has been the release date, which has always been between October 23rd (Saw VI) and October 29th (Saw and Saw 3D). So, when Chris Rock announced that he was producing and starring in a Saw spinoff (sometimes called The Organ Donor online), the presumed release date was in October of 2020. Perhaps tying into the film s premise as a Saw spinoff and not a Saw movie exactly, Lionsgate this week bumped up Chris Rock s film to a release date of May 15, 2020 (against the Scooby-Doo reboot Scoob). Rock will star in the film as a police detective investigating a series of gruesome crimes, with Samuel L. Jackson also on board to play Rock s character s father.9. JENNIFER LOPEZ MAY DIRECT (HERSELF IN) THE GODMOTHER  (Photo by Peter Iovino/©CBS Films)The ensemble stripper crime comedy Hustlers (9/13/2019) is now less than two months away, but one of its stars, Jennifer Lopez, is already preparing for new films in 2020 and beyond. Following flops like UglyDolls, Poms, and Best of Enemies, STX Entertainment is reportedly looking for big stars for their next moves, and one of them is going to be Jennifer Lopez. Jenny from the Block is now producing and will star in a drug lord drama called The Godmother for STXfilms. Lopez may also make her directorial debut with the film, in which she plays real life Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco, who was (real life spoiler warning) shot and killed in 2012 at the age of 69 (Jennifer Lopez is only 50). Lopez s next film after Hustlers will be the romantic comedy Marry Me, costarring Owen Wilson. This week, the Marry Me cast expanded as Lopez and Wilson will now be joined by Sarah Silverman and British actor John Bradley, who has a lot more time on his hands now that his run as Samwell Tarly on HBO s Game of Thrones is done.Like this?

The news that Patrick Stewart had, after 19 years, agreed to return to the character of Jean-Luc Picard, the Star Trek role that made him a global celebrity, sparked loads of excitement among the fanbase. As the 79-year-old actor explained, the decision to head back into the universe that Gene Roddenberry created, relied on the caveat that Picard would boldly go where no Star Trek series has gone before. I don t mean to give any offense to anyone, but I struggled a little bit with this issue, Stewart told select members of the press at the official junket for Star Trek: Picard. I was so obsessed with this idea that we must leave The Next Generation behind, that we must pull the curtain down on that and explore new things. In the latest Star Trek series on CBS All Access, a strong ensemble of Star Trek newcomers join Stewart; Isa Briones plays the mysterious Dahj, Michelle Hurd appears as former Starfleet Officer Raffi Musiker, Alison Pill plays Dr. Agnes Jurati, and Santiago Cabrera takes on the role of hot-headed pilot, Chris Rios. It is not the same world when we wrapped The Next Generation, Stewart continued. And I argued that I wanted that change and that world to be reflected insofar as it affected Jean-Luc and what had happened to him. The backstory of those 19 years is very, very important. But the great thing about it is — and I wasn t prepared for this — I discovered I also lived through those 19 years; Patrick had lived through them. And I had changed. I m different. I feel differently about the world that I m living in, and in subtle ways. (Photo by Matt Kennedy/CBS)As Star Trek fans know, there are multiple timelines that exist within this cinematic universe. That can add continuity confusion, depending on a viewer s expectations with Star Trek: Picard. Showrunner Alex Kurtzman explained that the Romulan supernova that impacted the events of J.J. Abrams 2009 movie, which sparked a new timeline and universe separate from the original Star Trek series — this event is also referenced in Picard — is the catalyst for the vastly different timelines that exist across the Star Trek universe. That s a lot to take in for new viewers, but the return of Stewart in his iconic role will most likely be a huge draw for people to tune in. Through all the strife Picard has been dealt since we last saw him, he s still the highly-revered Starfleet admiral fans have grown to love and respect. We live in a continuity of a timeline, Kurtzman said. There s emotional experiences that have certainly informed the show, but [Patrick Stewart] did not want to just play the part he had played in the same way. And I think you ll find, as you go on that, fundamentally, Picard, as a character, has not changed. He s not the dark angry version of Picard. He s still very much the man you know from Next Generation. But the circumstances of his life have changed radically and threw him off course. And so he s really wrestling with who he is now and what it means to be Picard in a world where not only does he not have an army, but things are very, very gray. How do you hold on to your clear moral compass in a world that s very gray? There is no greater captain in my mind for that challenge than Picard. (Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)According to series co-creator Michael Chabon, one of the themes Star Trek: Picard explores is the it s never too late concept of age and retrospection. This, according to Chabon, is something mostly unseen in the Star Trek universe. What we haven t ever had before, not just on Star Trek, but on almost any television show ever, and certainly any kind of serious dramatic television show is a central protagonist — a hero — who is effectively 80-years-old. Patrick was 78 when we started, he is 79 now. Jean-Luc Picard, in canon, is about 92. To have a person at that point in his life, reckoning with that question of: What does it mean to be a man, a human, a captain, a leader? And now he s an old man and he s still trying to answer that question, just like Star Trek is always trying to answer that question, but he s answering it in a different way than he did before. (Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)Discovery ended up being the first series in the Star Trek television universe that strayed from the narrative formula of exploring a different mission on-board a starship in every episode. Star Trek: Picard takes that storytelling baton and runs with it. Not only does much of the program take place on Earth, the series, which Kurtzman identifies as the first true adult drama in the world of Star Trek, hones its focus on the characters in the world and not just that of Jean-Luc Picard. Uniquely, that s a kind of storytelling which I don t think has been done much, period. Much less, in Star Trek, executive producer Akiva Goldsman added. So we re super delighted by that prospect because, as storytellers, it gets us to do the narrative hours in a way that s different and complicated. Relationships get to change and move, and you get to show one thing and then reverse it up. (Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)As much as the team was able to switch things up and delve into a more character-driven storyline, essentially creating a 10-hour movie, in the process, Goldsman asserted that Star Trek: Picard was made for both the die-hard Trek fans and newbies alike. We re trying to be able to deliver emotion and information and philosophy and character in a way that is engaging because you re watching it, Goldsman said. And if you know everything about it, you re like, Well, that was cool. And if you know nothing about it, you re like, Well, that was cool. And it might be cool, differently. It may have more color, or more revelation, depending on where you live in that spectrum of audience. But we really, really wanted to be welcoming of a listener s heart. Because that s part of the story we re trying to tell. Chabon agreed: We were absolutely committed to the idea that we wanted to make a show that, if you ve never seen Star Trek — if you re not sure what Star Trek really is even all about and you think you don t like Star Trek because what you ve seen before hasn t really grabbed you — or if you re a total novice, you will be able to sit down and still watch the show and enjoy it. (Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)Of course, having Patrick Stewart involved helps. The familiarity of fans to the actor, whose cinematic repertoire blossomed greatly after leaving the world of Star Trek behind, will surely help bring newbies into the fold. And, against his previous wishes, Stewart eventually warmed up to the notion of bringing some Next Generation characters and storylines back for another go in Picard. I was involved in meetings I d never been involved in as an actor before, Stewart, who had the added responsibility of co-executive producer on the series, explained. I could contribute. And I began, increasingly, to feel my colleagues from Next Generation, we need to see them. They, too, can reflect how the times have changed. I think it was the right thing to do. And I hope, with time, we are able to see more. To keep track, four familiar faces will be joining Jean-Luc Picard on this new adventure. Brent Spiner is reprising his role as android Commander Data. Marina Sirtis is returning, alongside Jonathan Frakes — who, once again, steps behind the camera to direct — as Deanna Troi and William Riker, respectively. Star Trek: Voyager s Jeri Ryan and Star Trek: The Next Generation s Jonathan Del Arco will be bringing their beloved Borg characters, Seven of Nine and Hugh, to this new tale, as well.(Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)Thematically, Star Trek has always operated best when it s held a mirror up to society to show us what works and what needs fixing. The first interracial kiss on television happened in the original series, between Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and Uhura (Nichelle Nichols). Star Trek has always been a series based on the ideas of inclusion and exclusion while digging into the evolving question: what is humanity? These are some of the ways Roddenberry s concept has thrived for over the past five decades. And that s a trend that continues in Star Trek: Picard. This was one of the shows that our family, as a family, would happily sit down and watch, Michelle Hurd explained. When I got this job, that s the first thing I remembered: sitting with my mom and dad and my two sisters and watching the show. Not only because of Uhur,a but the fact that it was telling the stories of people who were other, the people who were pushed away. It just really brought me back to the understanding that Star Trek is more than just a show; it s a place where we can all be seen and represented and it makes me so proud to be part of it. Every Star Trek has a bridge family, and, in Picard, a rag-tag crew eventually forms. But every unit needs a leader, and Stewart discovered stepping back into his most iconic role was quite easy. He s never left me, the actor admitted during the 2020 Television Critics Association winter press tour.(Photo by James Dimmock/CBS)Jean-Luc Picard may have been gone from our screens for nearly two decades, but his return is coming at just the right time, Kurtzman said. Right now more than ever, we need great leaders. We need great leaders like Jean-Luc Picard. And we don t have them, Kurtzman added. My hope is that we will inspire people to remember that and think about that deeply. And the next generation that is now much more vocal about many of the problems they ve been left with, because of previous generations, will look to something like Star Trek and say it s possible. You know, maybe we won t get there in our lifetime. But maybe we can lay brick for our children s children to get there. Star Trek: Picard premieres on Thursday, January 22 on CBS All Access.

bob真人官网 Disney’s new version of The Lion King is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. But will it satisfy expectations? That depends on what fans are looking for in this live action-style reimagining — a faithful adaptation of the classic 1994 animated feature or something relatively new and all its own. And will they consider the photorealistic look of the characters now impressive or problematic?The first reviews of the movie, which opens on July 19, have begun to appear online, and they re strikingly divided on whether this is a stunning achievement or an unnecessary failure. Everyone is on board with the technical accomplishment and the effectiveness of Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen’s comic relief, but they’re split on whether that’s enough to recommend the redo or not.Here’s what critics are saying about The Lion King:Does the new Lion King stand on its own?This new version of The Lion King is sure to be a classic in its own right.  It’s already my favorite film of the year.  Danielle Solzman, Solzy at the MoviesIt’s hard to say why it’s needed when the first one already exists… as an expansion of the 1994 film, The Lion King says and adds little.  Alissa Wilkinson, VoxThe Lion King doesn’t want to be compared, but it doesn’t want to stand on its own… it wants to remind you of the 1994 version and make it prettier to watch.  Kristen Lopez, io9Everything that works in The Lion King does so through the inventions of the former film, in less dazzling fashion.  Robert Daniels, 812 Film ReviewsThe Lion King is beholden to the original in a way it can never escape…most of the film feels like little more than a cover of the original.  Brandon Zachary, CBRCan we appreciate it alongside the original?It s a nice complement to the original that will answer some questions you may have had watching the animated version.  Kirsten Acuna, Insider[The filmmakers] have crafted a complementary feature that stands to reinvigorate our love for the timeless, award-winning masterpiece. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionThe Lion King at least honors what came before, using current animation technology to convince us that we’re watching the real thing. Peter Debruge, Variety(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)Is it just a shot-for-shot remake?Having just watched the original… I can confirm that many, if not most, of Lion King 2019’s shots and lines are replicas of Lion King 1994, except photorealistic. Alissa Wilkinson, VoxThis zombified digital clone of the studio’s first original cartoon feature is the Disney equivalent of Gus Van Sant’s Psycho. David Ehrlich, IndieWireIt is not, a shot for shot remake of the animated classic. It isn’t… watch closely or maybe we’ll wait for someone to prove that is isn’t when the DVD hits. Jazz Tangcay, Awards DailyWhat about the technological craft involved?Technically speaking, it’s a marvel. Bilge Ebiri, VultureThe Lion King is a monumental achievement of technological advancement. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Mike Ryan, UproxxIf a movie could be judged solely on technique, The Lion King might qualify as a great one. A.O. Scott, New York TimesThere’s a tremendous amount of craft in The Lion King, and under the direction of Jon Favreau, a complete absence of art. Matt Patches, PolygonThere’s no sense of wonder in this new Lion King—its most visible attribute is ambition. Stephanie Zacharek, Time[It’s] joyless, artless, and maybe soulless. A.A. Dowd, AV Club Can t we just turn off our brains and enjoy it?It’s a movie for the senses, and definitely a visually appealing film from beginning to end. Christie Cronan, Raising WhasiansThere’s never a moment when a full suspension of disbelief occurs. Robert Daniels, 812 Film Reviews(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)Does the photorealism work?The realism of the animals makes it hard to connect with them as characters, undermining the inspired anthropomorphism that has been the most enduring source of Disney magic. A.O. Scott, New York TimesThe hyperreal visuals sometimes feel like they’re in conflict with the Shakespearean drama and crowd-pleasing songs. Matt Maytum, Total FilmThe animation is so photorealistic that it’s disconcerting to see these lifelike animals walking (and singing) through the familiar drama. Alissa Wilkinson, VoxHas the disadvantage of prohibiting one’s ability to tell the difference between characters; the female lions especially are nearly impossible to tell apart and there are only two of significance. Kristen Lopez, io9How are the voice performances?The voice acting really had to deliver to make sure the audience could connect with these characters. The powerhouse cast did a great job. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorThe mismatch between the feeling the actor is conveying in their performance against the impassive countenance of a lion can be jarring. Meagan Navarro, Consequence of SoundThe vocal performances aren’t equipped to carry the emotional weight that the hand-drawn animation once expressed on its own. David Ehrlich, IndieWireAnd the classic musical numbers?All the familiar musical numbers… benefit from fresh producing by Pharrell Williams with African vocal and choir arrangements produced by Lebo M. Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles TimesAll of the songs are pretty great in the remake except for one. The new version of ‘Be Prepared’ is a complete misfire. Kirsten Acuna, InsiderI was underwhelmed with the ‘Be Prepared’ redo. Christie Cronan, Raising Whasians2019 s version, shackled by its realism, ditches almost anything resembling choreography in favor of having animals do what animals do, which is mostly just run around. Joshua Rivera, GQ(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)What about the new ones?Don’t be surprised to see Spirit become a strong contender for Best Original Song. Jazz Tangcay, Awards DailyBeyoncé’s new song for the film, Spirit is amazing. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorThat original track by Beyoncé feels like a welcome addition rather than an intrusive one. Angie Han, MashableBeyoncé contributes a largely unnecessary, but exhilarating new single. Peter Debruge, VarietyWhat else does the movie get right?We have more Nala than ever, and her expanded role opens up an enormous range of emotional depth. Jazz Tangcay, Awards DailyWhether ad-libbed or written into Jeff Nathanson’s otherwise unadventurous script, the new dialogue between Timon and Pumbaa is the film’s only welcome new addition. David Ehrlich, IndieWireThe techniques available in photo-realistic or live-action allow to expand on stories that were limited by the animation of its time. Danielle Solzman, Solzy at the MoviesLet s talk about Beyoncé I was impressed with Beyoncé’s voice acting. She was able to bring the same energy as the young Nala, while still bringing her own her flavor to the older version. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorShe brings soul and depth to Nala. Angie Han, MashablePop goddess Beyoncé Knowles-Carter lends still more depth, conveying aspects of bravery and independence in Nala’s personality that weren’t there before. Peter Debruge, VarietyKnowles-Carter proves more of an asset in the singing stakes (providing a new original song) than the dramatic. Matt Maytum, Total Film(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)How are Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumbaa?Where the other actors are left to say nearly all the original film’s dialogue, Eichner and Rogen just seem to be naturally riffing off each other, to hilarious effect. Kristen Lopez, io9When the emotional beats of the narrative don’t pack quite the same punch, the effortless charm of Eichner and Rogen make for a welcome surprise. Meagan Navarro, Consequence of SoundRogen and Eichner worked so well with one another, it was like they were born to play these roles. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorBilly Eichner’s Timon is transcendent. Matt Patches, PolygonWho else stands out?It’s Florence Kasumba as hyena pack leader Shenzi who earns this film’s MVP title. Her Eartha Kitt-like ferocity makes for a magnetic and intimidating presence through the power of her vocal timbre. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionThe surprise MVP may be Florence Kasumba as the hyena pack leader Shenzi…this new version of the character is threatening and instantly memorable. Brandon Zachary, CBREjiofor is a wonderfully menacing Scar, with a patois of frustrated condescension that’s a welcome counterpoint to the straightforward reverence of the other lion actors. William Bibbiani, The WrapShould Disney be worried?People are going to love this film. Danielle Solzman, Solzy at the MoviesIt serves up the expected goods, which will be duly gobbled up by audiences everywhere like the perfectly prepared corporate meal it is. Todd McCarthy, Hollywood ReporterAudiences are likely to eat it up. And that s the circle of life. Rafer Guzman, NewsdayThe Lion King opens in theaters July 19, 2019.
