逆龙战采用百度引擎1（Baidu 2）HBO)The Night King flies in on a high pressure storm front and, with a wave of his hand, commands his followers to create wight bridges over the trench fires, so that the others can climb over them. The zombies crawl up and over the walls World War Z style.Arya fighting on the wall is awe-inspiring and strikes Ser Davos silent. It also prompts The Hound to get his ass in gear to save her.7. “Not Today”(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Arya plays a deadly game of hide-and-seek with the wights who have made it inside Winterfell.There are too many of them. So now we know what was obscured in the darkness of the trailer: dozens of wights chasing our petite hero.When Beric and The Hound later come to her rescue, it’s almost as if Arya had given up. She stares almost helplessly when wights attack Beric, which is very unlike her. The trio retreats to a room where Melisandre has been hiding/waiting for them, and Beric dies.“What do we say to the god of death?” Melisandre asks Arya, which immediately summons the ghost of Syrio Forel (not literally).Arya: “Not today.”(Photo by HBO)8. Dragon Fight!(Photo by HBO)The dragons in the moonlight above the storm clouds is a beautiful image – this-dragon-moment-is-brought-to-you-by-Hallmark beautiful. But the scene later turns deadly as Jon and Rhaegal lock together in dragon battle against the Night King and wight dragon Viserion, who tears at his brother’s flesh and snaps his jaws at snack-sized Jon on Rhaegal’s back. The Night King tries to be smooth and grabs for his ice spear, but falls off (not to his death, of course – because that would be too easy).The scene of Winterfell from the air at this point, by the way, looks like a nighttime Burning Man riot: a circle of fire and waves of bodies flowing this way and that.Rhaegal goes down and Jon tumbles off. Daenerys tries dragonfire on the Night King on the ground, but he does not burn (like a Targaryen). She retreats when he aims a spear her way, but Jon pursues him on foot with Longclaw. The Night King raises a new army from the freshly dead, including those inside Winterfell – including, they make a point to show, Lyanna, Qhono, and Edd. Was that Podrick standing behind the Night King before he pimp-walked away? OMG, where’s Podrick?Wights, meanwhile, swarm Drogon, and Daenerys falls off.9. Tales from the Crypt(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Tyrion laments that he’s not out there. Sansa says he’d be dead. Then he suggests they should’ve stayed married. She rightly notes his divided loyalties (aka “You loooove her, you want to marry her…”) for Daenerys.The dead rise in the crypt of Winterfell even (thanks for the heads-up, Jared Harris), and dusty, ancient Starks start tearing at people.Next time, maybe freeze them in carbonite?10. Theon and Jorah(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)The Night King swaggers into the godswood with his court. Bran: “Theon, you’re a good man. Thank you.” Theon charges the Night King and gets a spear thrust into his side.Elsewhere, when a wight wave threatens to overcome Daenerys, Ser Jorah puts himself between them and her and is mortally (maybe, probably) wounded protecting her. He leans on Heartsbane in his final stand.11. “Arya Stark” Becomes a Verb(Photo by HBO)Holy sh ! Arya killed the Night King. She takes a flying leap and, despite being caught by the throat, still manages to thrust that ancient Valyrian-steel dagger into his belly. (To Arya Stark someone will forever refer to that move.) He explodes, his court explodes, Viserion (who Jon has been dodging all this time) collapses to the ground in a pile of loose bones and ragged flesh, as do all of the other wights.(We heard echos of Jon’s voice: “How did you sneak up on me?”)(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)There’s a roll call of who’s still alive: Arya, Bran, Daenerys, Jorah (until he s not), Drogon, Jon, Tormund, Gendry, Grey Worm, Brienne, Jaime, Podrick, Tyrion, Sansa, Varys, his new little crypt birds, Missandei, Gilly and Little Sam (did anyone see Samwell Tarly in the roll call?), The Hound, Melisandre (until she isn’t), and Ser Davos.

《DNF手游》今年可谓一波三折，原本定档暑期上线，可是到现在也还未有消息，不过不少玩家已经玩过测试版本了，相信离正式长线也不远了。这款游戏有着原作的精髓玩法，职业系统也很平衡，如果上线应该会变成最热门的2D横版格斗类手游。 R.I.P. Stan Lee: The World Loses a LegendEvery Stan Lee Movie RankedMarvel Stars Pay Tribute to Stan LeeAll Upcoming Stan Lee Movie CameosAs the story often goes, Stan Lee, who passed away early Monday morning, was tired of working at Martin Goodman’s comic book company. His wife, Joan, suggested he pitch one last title and do it the way he felt a comic story should be told. Alongside genius co-creator Jack Kirby, his “last” comic book was The Fantastic Four, which lead to an ongoing series of new titles and ushered in the Marvel Age of comics.But Lee, who always hoped to leave comics behind to write the Great American Novel, also had bigger ambitious for characters he co-created, including The Fantastic Four, Thor, Black Panther, and The X-Men. Early on, he saw that they had the potential to transfer to other media. Here’s just a few way he helped comic books in transitioning to film and television.He Worked On The 1960s Marvel Super Heroes CartoonWhile still writing titles and acting as an editor and art director for Marvel in 1966, Lee also worked on Grantray-Lawrence Animation s The Marvel Super Heroes animated series. While Goodman negotiated the deal with Grantray-Lawrence and the company chose which Marvel characters would be featured, Lee nonetheless worked on the series, helping to reform stories written by him and people like Kirby, Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko, and others.The series focused on Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Namor. Each starred in their own sub-series ripped from the pages of Marvel s recent comic books. The animation generally consisted of photocopied images pulled directly from recent issues of the various characters’ comics — or even early issues of The Avengers — with the images manipulated to create the illusion of animation and limited lip-sync. But despite its technical limitations, the series expanded Marvel’s reach into homes all over the country, creating life-long fans thanks to memorable theme songs for Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man. In interviews, Lee would admit he did not write the lyrics, but always wished he could claim those catchy tunes for himself.His Characters Came to Screen In the 1967 Fantastic Four Animated SeriesWhile not directly involved in the 1967 Hanna-Barbera Fantastic Four animated series, Lee’s influence could still be felt thanks to the story material adapted by the producers. Episodes featured key villains like The Mole Man and Galactus, while Dr. Doom’s origin received an episode-long origin story. The Skrulls and the Silver Surfer also made appearances and many of the stories were based on the early Lee and Kirby issues of Fantastic Four even as they were redesigned by Hanna-Barbera and comics legend Alex Toth.The series also led to the X-Men’s first television appearance when The Marvel Super Heroes adapted Fantastic Four #6, but substituted the Merry Mutants — referred to as “the Allies for Peace” — in for the FF, whose rights were already in the hands of Hanna-Barbera. Nowadays, rights confusion over characters is a well-known issue in the world of comics-to-screen adaptations, but this may be the first instance of comic-book characters disappearing from a television adaptation of one of their own stories.The 1970s: The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, and Dr. Strange Come to TVIn 1972, Lee became the publisher of Marvel Comics and largely left writing and creating to a new generation of writers, artists, and editors. And while he continued to have a hand in some creative aspects of the business – like the daily Spider-Man comic strip – Lee found himself shepherding the Marvel heroes through Hollywood as the characters began to emerge in the uncharted realm of live action. Before long, CBS debuted The Incredible Hulk.(Photo by ©Universal Television/courtesy Everett Collection)The 1977 series, starring Bill Bixby as Dr. David Bruce Banner, was developed by Kenneth Johnson and followed the format of ABC s hit series The Fugitive. Each week, Banner would move into a new town and involve himself in local affairs until the Hulk explosively assisted Banner’s new friends. Sadly, word of the creature’s appearance would reach an investigative reporter hunting the Hulk, forcing Banner to look for peace somewhere else. The Incredible Hulk ran for five seasons.At nearly the same time, Lee sold CBS the rights to make a live-action version of The Amazing Spider-Man. Populating his world with new characters – J. Jonah Jameson was the only carryover in the regular cast – the show was not as successful as The Incredible Hulk, leading CBS to air it in a strange, inconsistent schedule. The two produced seasons amounted to only 13 episodes before the network pulled the plug.Nonetheless, the network soldiered on with a Dr. Strange pilot and two Captain America TV movies staring Reb Brown. Soon, Lee found himself spending more time in Los Angeles than in New York. In 1981, he and his wife finally moved to Los Angeles intent on making Marvel Productions a mover and shaker in film and television. Successes would include Marvel’s work on The Transformers and G.I. Joe. But after a handful of Incredible Hulk TV movies in the 1980s, television shows based on Marvel characters were few and far between. While Marvel regained a foothold in children s animation through the 1990s, it would not be until 2013’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that a Marvel live-action series would be a success.Lee s Characters Come to Dominate the Box Office, The MCU Is BornMeanwhile, on film, characters co-created by Lee grew to be a box office force in the early part of the 21st century. It all begins with 2000’s X-Men, which featured Lee and Kirby characters like Cyclops, Professor X, Magneto, and Jean Grey. Soon after, Lee and Ditko’s Spider-Man would star in his own film courtesy of director Sam Raimi.(Photo by Columbia/courtesy Everett Collection)But behind the scenes, Marvel was becoming less satisfied with their financial participation in films produced by 20th Century Fox and Sony. These films, based on the company’s most popular characters, inspired many of Marvel’s executives to try their hand at producing films on their own. With the X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Blade, Daredevil, and a few others unavailable, the newly formed Marvel Studios looked closer at Lee and Kirby characters like Iron Man and Thor for inspiration.They also identified another key aspect of Lee’s writing to create a unique momentum with their films. From The Fantastic Four on, the Marvel Comics Universe was a (mostly) cohesive world. Most of the new superheroes Lee and Kirby created were based in New York and crossed over into each other’s titles. The concept may have been borrowed from DC Comics’ Golden Age Justice Society of America, but Lee, Kirby, Ditko, and others made their world feel alive and dynamic with the Fantastic Four guest starring in The Amazing Spider-Man and vice-versa. Soon enough, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, Ant-Man. and the Wasp would form their own super team and revive Captain America to join their crew.Many years later, Marvel Studios would choose to adopt that crossover energy and lead to an Avengers of their own. As in comics, the pieces were always there to make it happen on film, but Lee’s efforts helped to point the way.The CameosAnd, of course, Stan Lee will leave a mark behind thanks to his penchant for making brief appearances in Marvel movies. It began innocuously enough in the 1989 TV movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk and in some of the animated series, but that foundation led to his on-screen appearance in X-Men. He also appeared as a mail man in the first Fantastic Four film, receiving speaking lines. With his iconic look and distinctive voice, he would appear in all of the Marvel Studios films, as well as projects featuring characters he did not create, like Deadpool, and even make a cameo appearance in Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, poking fun at his hat-tip presence in comic book movies.(Photo by @ 20th Century Fox Film Corp. All rights reserved.)He also played himself in Kevin Smith’s 1995 film Mallrats, in which he gave main character Brodie (Jason Lee) some sage wisdom even as Brodie kept asking him about the Hulk’s junk.If nothing else, Lee was always a sport on film, playing strip club MCs, bus drivers, and concerned citizens helping people out of harm s way. He got in the characters ways sometimes, or even reminded them that one person can make a difference. As with the universe-building he indulged in during the 1960s, the notion of creator cameos predated Lee s Incredible Hulk appearance, but he and the directors of each project gave it a unique spin each time. And when the first Marvel film unspools without a cameo from Stan the Man, his absence will be felt.
This Week s Ketchup brings you seven headlines from the world of film development news, covering a couple of major announcements and new roles for Viggo Mortensen, Elisabeth Moss, Kaitlyn Dever, Thomasin McKenzie, and Olivia Munn.This WEEK S TOP STORYTENET, WONDER WOMAN 1984, GODZILLA VS. KONG AMONG NEW MOVIES DELAYED(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Recently, when Warner Bros. released the latest trailer for Christopher Nolan s new action thriller Tenet, many people noticed that it ended with Coming to Theaters, neglecting to specify exactly when that might be. Tenet has been announced for release on July 17, 2020 since last summer, but with most movie theaters currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been increasing questions about whether it would shift its release or not. In breaking news late on Friday afternoon, Warner Bros. confirmed that Tenet will indeed be pushed back two weeks to July 31, 2020. On the July 17, 2020 date when Tenet was supposed to have been released, WB will instead re-release Christopher Nolan s Inception (Certified Fresh at 87%), another trippy action movie with mind-bending visuals. In addition to Tenet, which many in the industry were looking to as the barometer for theatrical reopenings across the country, Warner Bros. also announced that Wonder Woman 1984 is getting pushed to October 2; Robert Zemeckis s remake of The Witches is being pulled from its October 9 release to an unknown date; the animated-live action hybrid Tom Jerry is getting pushed from December 23 to March of next year; and the giant monster face-off Godzilla vs. Kong is moving from its November 20 date to May 21, 2020, which in turn pushes back the fourth Matrix film all the way to April 1, 2022. As of right now, Disney s Mulan is still scheduled to open on July 24, making it the first big movie to be released in the post-coronavirus environment, but it would not be surprising if that changed as well.Other Top Headlines1. THE ACADEMY S NEW INCLUSIVITY RULES MANDATE 10 BEST PICTURE NOMINEES EVERY YEAR (Photo by Getty Images)The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has been revising the rules and categories for the Academy Awards almost since the awards started in the late 1920s (they used to award Oscars for Best Dance Direction, for example). Although the rules of the Oscars seemed relatively stable for decades, they ve made several changes in the last decade, starting with the decision in 2009 to expand the number of Best Picture nominees from five to a maximum of 10. Responding to calls for more inclusion in their standards, AMPAS again changed some of its rules, one of which was to return the number of Best Picture nominees to a consistent ten every year. Although the Academy keeps many secrets about how close films get to being nominated, there has been speculation that some of the snubbed movies in recent years (like say, last year s The Farewell and If Beale Street Could Talk) could have been Best Picture nominees. These changes will take effect starting with the films of 2021 and will include other guidelines put in place by a new task force of industry leaders to develop and implement a new representation and inclusion standards for Oscars eligibility. 2. VIGGO MORTENSEN S GREEN BOOK REUNION WILL DEPICT THE GREATEST BEER RUN EVER (Photo by ©Universal Pictures)Director Peter Farrelly s controversial 2018 film about race relations in the 1960s, Green Book, went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture last year, which led to reactions like this. For his next film, Farrelly will be reuniting with one of the stars of that film, namely Viggo Mortensen, for another true story set in the 1960s. The film will be an adaptation of the non-fiction book, The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger than War, which told the story of a young man (nicknamed Chickie ) who traveled in 1967 from New York to Vietnam to share a few beers with his childhood friends serving in the Army in the Vietnam War. Brian Currie, who also co-wrote Green Book, will be one of the screenwriters on The Greatest Beer Run Ever as well, along with Pete Jones (Hall Pass). In addition to its various awards, Green Book also earned over 0 million worldwide, so the bar is set pretty high for The Greatest Beer Run Ever.3. BOOKSMART STAR KAITLYN DEVER LANDS FEMALE LEAD IN DEAR EVAN HANSEN (Photo by Francois Duhamel/©Annapurna Pictures)Since her co-star Beanie Feldstein was also in Lady Bird (Certified Fresh at 99%), the breakout star of last year s Booksmart (Certified Fresh at 97%) was arguably Kaitlyn Dever (although she had previously been a cast member on TV of both Justified and Last Man Standing). For her next role, Kaitlyn Dever has landed the female lead in the film adaptation of the Tony-winning Broadway play Dear Evan Hansen. Although at 26, he is much older than the high school student he portrayed, Ben Platt is expected to reprise his role from the Broadway production in the new film. Dear Evan Hansen is the story of a socially awkward high school student who gets caught up in a web of deception after one of his letters to a classmate who committed suicide is confused with being the suicide note itself. Dever will play the dead student s sister who begins dating Evan Hansen. Dear Evan Hansen will be directed for Universal Pictures by Stephen Chbosky, whose previous films include Wonder (Certified Fresh at 85%) and The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Certified Fresh at 86%). Dear Evan Hansen does not yet have a release date (many movies don t right now), but it seems likely to be one of Universal s late 2021 awards contenders.4. DISNEY GIVING LIONEL RICHIE HIS OWN MOVIE MUSICAL ALL NIGHT LONG (Photo by RCF/Everett Collection)Some of the most popular movie musicals of the last several years have included both traditional biopics like Rocketman and Bohemian Rhapsody, but also jukebox musicals like Mamma Mia! and, arguably, Yesterday. Walt Disney Pictures is now developing a new musical inspired by and including the numerous pop songs of Lionel Richie to be titled All Night Long, named after his 1983 hit song. The film, which is intended to be a theatrical release, will not be a biopic but more like Mamma Mia!, and the screenwriter will be Pete Chiarelli (Crazy Rich Asians, Now You See Me 2). Something that remains unclear is whether the songs will be only from Lionel Richie s solo career, or if it will also include songs from his career with the Commodores (such as Brick House, Nightshift, Three Times a Lady, Easy ).5. BRUCE CAMPBELL CONFIRMS THE EXISTENCE OF EVIL DEAD NOW (Photo by Matt Klitscher/©Starz!)Long before he ever directed a Spider-Man movie, Sam Raimi first became famous with his Evil Dead horror comedy franchise starring Bruce Campbell as the chainsaw-wielding anti-hero Ash. The franchise was rebooted in 2013 with Evil Dead (Fresh at 62%), which failed to generate enough attention for its own sequel. Instead, Campbell revealed this week that a new fifth Evil Dead movie to be titled Evil Dead Now is currently being developed by writer/director Lee Cronin (The Hole in the Ground). Evil Dead Now is expected to be a new story not directly connected to either the characters of the 2013 remake or Sam Raimi s original trilogy.6. JAKE GYLLENHAAL TO STAR IN GRAPHIC NOVEL ADAPTATION SNOW BLIND (Photo by Anne Marie Fox/TM & ©Copyright Fox Searchlight)Following his Marvel Comics Universe debut last year as the villain Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far from Home (Certified Fresh at 90%), Jake Gyllenhaal is now attached to star in another movie based on a graphic novel. That project, called Snow Blind, is an action-adventure about a young boy who discovers that the reason that his family lives in Alaska is that they are in the Witness Protection Program. Snow Blind is being compared to a cross between Gyllenhaal s Prisoners (Certified Fresh at 80%) and the River Phoenix film Running on Empty (Fresh at 85%) (although that family of domestic terrorists on the run was sort of the the exact opposite of the Witness Protection Program). Snow Blind will be written by Patrick Ness, the author of A Monster Calls (Certified Fresh at 86%) whose Chaos Walking (starring Tom Holland) is currently awaiting release.7. KEKE PALMER TO STAR IN ABDUCTION THRILLER ALICE (Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection)One of the horror films still awaiting release due to COVID-19 delays is Antebellum, which appears to be about a modern African-American woman (Janelle Monae) who discovers she has somehow time-traveled back to the slavery era in the American South. While we wait for that film to get an official release date, singer and actress Keke Palmer (Hustlers) is now attached to executive produce and star in a film called Alice that seems like a cross between Antebellum, Brie Larson s abduction drama Room (Certified Fresh at 93%), and M. Night Shyamalan s The Village (Rotten at 43%). We re making those comparisons because of its premise, reportedly based on a true story, which is about a woman who escapes from a life of servitude in 1800s Georgia only to discover that the year is actually 1973.8. ELISABETH MOSS REUNITES WITH HANDMAID S TALE DIRECTOR FOR NEW HORROR FILM(Photo by Ely Dassas/©Hulu)Although she first became famous as the First Daughter on TV s The West Wing and in AMC s Mad Men, not to mention her box office hit this year with the remake of The Invisible Man, Elisabeth Moss is arguably still most famous in 2020 for her starring role in the acclaimed series The Handmaid s Tale. For her next film, Moss will be reuniting with one of her Handmaid s Tale directors, Daina Reid, for a supernatural horror film called Run Rabbit Run. In the film, Moss will play a a fertility doctor who believes firmly in life and death, but after noticing the strange behavior of her young daughter, must challenge her own values and confront a ghost from her past. 9. JOJO RABBIT S THOMASIN MCKENZIE TO STAR IN BALLET MOVIE JOIKA (Photo by Scott Green/©Bleecker Street Media)For his World War II satire Jojo Rabbit, director Taika Waititi cast established stars (Scarlett Johansson, Rebel Wilson, Sam Rockwell) for supporting roles, but went with three relative newcomers for the film s young leads. In addition to the two boys (Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo, and Archie Yates as Yorki), the female lead in Jojo Rabbit was Thomasin McKenzie, who actually did have her first breakout role in 2018 in the indie film Leave No Trace (Certified Fresh at 100%). For her next role, McKenzie will star in Joika, based on the true story of an American ballet dancer named Joy Womack who was a member of the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. The young actress is reportedly already training for her role as a ballet dancer in the production, which will reportedly use new technology to allow the team to work together in the post-COVID-19 pandemic environment.10. OLIVIA MUNN TO STAR IN HER OWN SCI-FI ACTION MOVIE CALLED REPLAY (Photo by Dan McFadden/©Millennium Entertainment courtesy Everett Collection)Olivia Munn may have at one point expected to have a potential superhero franchise when she co-starred as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse (Rotten at 47%), except that the X-Men franchise as we previously knew it is pretty much dead now following Disney s acquisition of Fox, and Psylocke didn t return in the next movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, anyway. Instead, Munn appears to have a chance at another new role with a concept that seems franchise-friendly, as she will produce and star in a science fiction action movie called Replay about a woman armed with illegal, bleeding-edge technology who attempts to change the past in order to save the life of her murdered husband. Replay is being produced by Dark Castle Entertainment, the production company behind such recent films as Ghost Ship, Orphan, Suburbicon, and House of Wax.

0.95.9 5月喜迎This August, Rotten Tomatoes turns 21 and to mark the occasion we’re celebrating the 21 Most Memorable Moments from the movies over the last 21 years. For this special video series, which we’ve been publishing over the last four months, we spoke to the actors and filmmakers who made those moments happen, revealing behind-the-scenes details about how the moments came to be and diving deep into why they’ve stuck with us for so long. You’ll find big ’90s twists – yep, he sees dead people – as well as super-recent cliffhangers, like Thanos’s universe-halving Snap. There are laughs (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Elf, Bridesmaids) and romance (The Notebook, Spider-Man) and more than a few scares (The Blair Witch Project, 28 Days Later…). But which moment is the single most memorable of the last 21 years? Well, that’s where you come in. We’re asking you to watch the below videos and then vote on your favorite movie moment of the last two decades (and a bit).Voting is open now and runs until midnight Friday August 16 and we will announce the winner on August 19. Fans get a single vote – so choose wisely – and moments are listed in the order they were published over the past few months, most often to tie in with anniversaries and relevant occasions.Take me to the voting!“Remember Me!?” from Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) 97%Director George Miller: “It’s a moment by the way, I think, is available only to her. I don’t think any other character could have done it. I remember the line. I remember Charlize on that day said that she wanted to say the line. It wasn’t a written line. She said, ‘Look, I feel like I really want to say it. OK by you?’ I said, ‘Great.’ It just hit a sweet spot in amongst that action, and it was a little pause before the brutality of the moment and the continuation of the action that was to come.”Read director George Miller’s full interview about the “Remember me!?” moment.The Snap from Avengers: Infinity War (2018) 85%Co-director Joe Russo: “Anth and I, through our entire experience at Marvel, always tried to make very disruptive choices with each film. The end of Winter Solider, good guys and the bad guys, we flip everything on its head. In Civil War we divorce the Avengers. With Infinity War we knew we wanted to make a strong narrative choice. There s an adage where you write yourself into a corner, and you try to figure out how to get out. That usually creates really dramatic moments for the audience. There s no bigger way to write ourselves into a corner than killing half the characters.”Read directors Joe and Anthony Russo s full interview about the moment Thanos devastates the universe.Satine s Entrance from Moulin Rouge (2001) 76%Director Baz Luhrmann: “I thought, wouldn t it be great if we put her in a circus trapeze and we did a trapeze number, but we ll have to have a stunt person. But Nicole being Nicole was like, ‘No way.’ So she trained with a circus person for a good, I would say, two weeks to do that number and when you see her swing around that s her. It s her all the way through that footage. She s on the trapeze, she s being swung around, she comes down, she falls into all those guys. So she was 100% stunt-free on that moment.”Read director Baz Luhrmann and production and costume designer Catherine Martin s full interview about Satine s big moment.The Joker from The Dark Knight (2008) 94%Makeup artist John Caglione Jr.: “Heath [Ledger] was great in the chair. Special actors like Heath – and my experience with Al Pacino over the years – these actors help you relax so that you can bring your game… I always got the feeling that [Heath] had already worked it out in his head, from what I remember. He knew where he was going. Early on, in first meeting Heath and playing around with the makeup, he already kind of had it all figured out. It was my job to just basically gild the lily and try to catch up with him, really. That s what I felt.”Read makeup artist John Caglione Jr. and marketing company 42 Entertainment CEO Susan Bonds full interview about this iconic take on the Joker.Heather s Confessional from The Blair Witch Project (1999) 86%Co-writer and co-director Eduardo Sánchez: “The direction was: You re not going to make it out of here. This is like an internal monologue. We were directing these actors to almost be like their conscience speaking to them. For Heather, it s like, ‘You re responsible for this. You re the one who brought them out here. You didn t heed the warnings. You knew this is dangerous and you brought these guys out here. Say your goodbyes. If you want to apologize to people, apologize to people, just basically say goodbye. We called it a confessional, your last confessional before you re going. You re not going to get out, and hopefully, somebody will find these tapes and will be able to tell your story, but tell your mom goodbye, and tell your family goodbye.”Read writer-directors Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick s full interview about Heather s confessional.The Upside-Down Kiss from Spider-Man (2002) 90%Director Sam Raimi: In the rain while he was doing the scene, I remember, he was slightly drowning because he couldn’t wipe his nose and the water was falling down into his upside-down nose, into his nostrils. So he was kinda drowning, and the only way he could breathe was through his mouth. It doesn’t look un-pleasurable, but I think it must’ve been.”Read Sam Raimi and stunt coordinator Jeff Habberstad s full interview about the upside-down kiss.London is Deserted from 28 Days Later (2002) 87%Director Danny Boyle: One of the technical advantages of using these smaller cameras is that you could shoot a location, not multiple times, but you could shoot it from multiple viewpoints simultaneously. Cillian was in no rush, he could just walk across. But you don’t get much time at these locations free of people even at four o’clock in the morning when we shot. So what happened was we hired a lot of students, because they’re cheap, to be our traffic marshals.”Read Danny Boyle s full interview about creating an eerily deserted London for the opening moments.A Kiss in the Rain from The Notebook (2004) 53%Director Nick Cassavetes: There was something built up between these two kids, and it has nothing to do with directing. Because when we turned the cameras on, the scene was like: He s mad at her, she s mad at him, and then he says that he wrote her every day, and that s the key that unlocks the door. And when that door got unlocked, I didn t need to direct nothing. They wound up together for many years after the movie, which is…I don t know if I m proud of it, but I think it s fantastic that they found each other like that. And I think that was the moment, because they weren t together before that kiss. But they were together after that kiss, so maybe that was one of the deciding moments.”Read Nick Cassavetes full interview about the kiss in the rain moment.Crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Selma (2014) 99%Representative John Lewis: I truly believe that Oprah, Ava, and the staff working on the film sought my involvement because they knew my history. Selma represented an attempt to redeem the soul of America, to help us move closer to the participation of all people in the political process. This film can educate and inform the mind of hundreds and thousands of young people around America and around the world.”Read Representative John Lewis and actor Stephan James s full interview about the final bridge-crossing moment. Cars don t fly! from Furious 7 (2015) 82%Actor Vin Diesel: And it was that moment where we realized that Fast and Furious didn’t need to be restricted in any way. That we were so thorough about story and character, and it’s so much a tale of brotherhood and family, right, that we were allowed these kind of outrageous and fantasy-filled moments, and flying through the air was playing to that. Flying from building to building was playing to that. It was one of those solutions to the riddle, or answers to the riddle, How do we one-up the spectacle of each film? ”Read Vin Diesel s full interview about the skyscraper-jump moment.Juan teaches Chiron to Swim in Moonlight (2016) 98%Cinematographer James Laxton: When Barry alerted us to the storm approaching, we gathered our equipment together as quickly as possible, ran out into the water, and in some respects… I don t want to say improvised, because what is in the script is on camera, if not in the exact way it was depicted. But we had a lot more shots in our shot list, and [were going to be] much more organized about capturing it. We had to really get out there and let Mahershala as Juan guide this young man, and [have] me out in the water, as well, trying to capture this swimming lesson as it came. It [was shot] almost like a documentary, less so like a film in some respects. Sometimes your reaction to moments is as good as a well detailed plan might be. Sometimes it s even better.”Read James Laxton s full interview about the swimming lesson moment.Carl and Ellie in the Opening of Up (2009) 98%Director Pete Docter: There’s one moment in that montage where Ellie has to go to the doctor and it’s implied that they can’t have children for whatever reason. That raised some eyebrows even here at work as we were developing the film. So, we did experiment with taking it out. And we thought, ‘Well, maybe [the sequence] could still work [without it] because there’s some really charming stuff.’ But the strange thing was, not only did we not feel the emotion as strongly in that one little sequence, but as we watched the rest of the film the whole film lost a little bit. I can’t really fully explain that other than to say it was a real dark, low moment for them that I think made that relationship feel more real. The sort of pain and loss of that situation bonded those characters together and made you empathize more with them. Read Pete Docter s full interview about Up s opening sequence.Gollum Talks to Smeagol from The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) 95%Actor Andy Serkis: I d never considered myself a voice actor, just a regular actor, and I had to kind of think my way into it. I started to work on this notion that he s called Gollum because of the way he sounds – and what would make his voice sound like that? I started to think about constriction of the throat, and as I was doing that, I was actually fortunate enough to witness my cat throwing up a fur ball. It suddenly gave me this idea that the whole physicality of the role would be determined by this force within, which is kind of built out of guilt and torment – this involuntary physical action is what caused this sound coming out of his mouth. The cat throwing up a fur ball is actually what generated the idea for this involuntary spewing out of words. Read Andy Serkis s full interview about the Gollum-Smeagol moment.The Bridesmaids get Food Poisoning from Bridesmaids (2011) 90%Co-Writer Annie Mumolo: We [originally] had a fantasy sequence where they go into the dress shop, and Kristen s character tries on this dress and she has this fantasy that when she wears this dress, she s all of a sudden in a castle. And all the men at the wedding are fawning over her. There s so many of them wanting her so badly [that] just to escape from the castle she goes running out into this field and runs into the forest. And she naturally sees Christian Bale there, who’s chopping wood without a shirt on. And they end up on a bearskin rug, and he was combing her hair, and it was this expansive sequence of her little love affair with Christian Bale. In the meantime, [back in the real world] Helen gets the women to get the dress she wants because Annie is caught up in her fantasy. So that was the original [scene]. And then I think Judd said at one point we ll never get Christian Bale to do this. And then we tried to put in Matt Damon and then we re like, As if we re going to get Matt Damon to do this.’ He was concerned we weren t going to get anybody to do it. And also he felt it needed harder comedy there, rather than what we had. So, we sadly let that go. We did not want to let that go. We loved that sequence.

Amber Ruffin, Larry Wilmore To Launch Peacock Shows(Photo by NBC)NBCUniversal’s new streaming service Peacock is getting into the topical late-night show game with two upcoming shows.The first, which stars Late Night with Seth Meyers breakout Amber Ruffin and is called The Amber Ruffin Show, will launch in September and currently has a nine-episode order. Ruffin is executive producing the series along with Meyers, Mike Shoemaker, and fellow Late Night writer and frequent on-screen commentator, Jenny Hagel.Ruffin told journalists attending the show’s all-virtual Television Critics Association summer press tour that “the show will be a half-hour, late-night show and it ll mostly feel like a late-night show except there will never be a guest. Well, as of now, we will not have guests. You never know who’s gonna stop by. New York’s a big city. But I guess we will write as much as we can all week and then the four things we like the most, that’s what we ll do.”But fans of Late Night who have come to enjoy Ruffin (and Hagel’s) commentary in segments like “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell” should not worry, as she will still be involved with that show.Peacock s other new after-hours series involves bringing back a late-night veteran: Larry Wilmore. The Daily Show and Nightly Show alum will host a still-untitled weekly series that the press release promises will see him having “real discussions with high profile people from all different backgrounds including sports, politics and entertainment.”“The show is basically about where we re going to have that kind of ‘conversation’ that we ve been saying that we want to have,” Wilmore told journalists attending his virtual panel. “So we re going to have some interesting people in the show, and we re also going to cover the election. I felt like I got cheated the last time during the last election [because The Nightly Show’s last episode aired August 18, 2016]. So it ll be fun to cover that, and just weigh-in on the important issues in the culture right now.”He also said that the show isn’t going to steer away from topical, yet sensitive, issues like race, explains that “we re definitely going to cover race, but we re not going to be obsessed with it.”The series has an 11-episode order so far and also launches in September.More from Peacock this week:Greg Peters/©Universal courtesy Everett CollectionThe streaming channel has given a series order to MacGruber, the Will Forte comedy based on his popular Saturday Night Live character and subsequent feature movie. The logline reads that “after rotting in prison for over a decade, America’s ultimate hero and uber patriot, MacGruber, is finally released. His mission: to take down a mysterious villain from his past Brigadier Commander Enos Queeth. With the entire world in the crosshairs, MacGruber must race against time to defeat the forces of evil – only to find that evil may be lurking within.”Sara Bareilles will star Girls5eva, a new comedy from 30 Rock’s Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. She plays Dawn, a former member of a ’90s girl group who is now managing her family’s small Italian restaurant in Queens. She’s grown a bit listless and jumps at the chance to get the band back together.New cast members joining Rutherford Falls, the small-town comedy starring Ed Helms and co-created by him, Mike Schur and Sierra Teller Ornelas, include Jana Schmieding, Michael Greyeyes, Jesse Leigh, and Dustin Milligan.Peacock has also given a series order to One of Us Is Lying. It’s based on the Karen M. McManus novel and follows “what happens when five high schoolers walk into detention and only four make it out alive.”
(Photo by © Warner Bros. )Was Jim Carrey’s 1994 the single best year for a relative newcomer to the big screen ever? Or was it just the single best year for any actor – period? Consider that in this 12-month span, the In Living Color star appeared in three movies that were smash hits at the time and have gone on to become comedy classics: The Mask, Dumb Dumber, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Each would spawn catchphrases, sequels, and remain in the pop culture conversation almost three decades on, but only one stands out from the otherwise-Fresh pack for earning itself a big green splat on our Tomatometer.That film is Ave Ventura, which featured arguably Jim Carrey’s most Jim Carrey performance, a fact that split critics almost evenly – the movie is Rotten at 49% – between those who were repelled by his rubber-faced gonzo efforts and those who felt Carrey was the best thing about this sophomoric story of a stolen football mascot and the quest to track it down. (Still, reviews were kinder to the 1994 movie than they were to its sequel, released just a year later: Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls was slapped with a Rotten Tomatometer score of just 25%.)Were the critics talking out of their… ahem, asses? Or are these widely beloved films genuine loooooosers when we take a clear-eyed look back at them? That’s what we’re asking in the latest episode of our podcast, Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong (A Podcast from Rotten Tomatoes), in which we tackle two movies for the first time ever: Ace Ventura and its bigger-budget, higher-concept, maybe-funnier(?) sequel. With all that film to tackle, we had to bring in the big guns, and this week joining our hosts Mark Ellis and Jacqueline Coley is stand-up comedian, actor, and director of the new – Fresh! – film, The Opening Act, Steve Byrne. In the ep, they talk about the epic talent of Jim Carrey, the challenge of comedy that doesn’t always age well – yes, we get into the problematic stuff here – and whether comedy sequels are inherently cursed. All in the quest to answer that question we ask every week: Was Rotten Tomatoes wrong? In this case: twice?!Listen Now: Spotify | Apple Podcasts | Stitcher | TuneIn | Google Podcasts | Radio Public | Deezer | iHeart | Art19Check in every Thursday for a new episode of Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong (A Podcast From Rotten Tomatoes).

The big game always means big trailers, and this year was no exception with fresh looks at Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Toy Story 4, Us, CBS All Access s reboot of The Twilight Zone, Netflix s nature documentary series Our Planet, and our first look at season 3 of Hulu s The Handmaid s Tale. (That s Plus, CBS Films dropped four mini teasers for the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick, Scary Stories to Tell In the Dark. Catch up with all of the trailers below.Trailer for Avengers: Endgame (2019) 94% Some people move on, but not us. Our second look at Endgame doesn t reveal very many new details, other than showing us a deserted New York (empty Citi Field!) and various shots of the Avengers preparing to go to battle of some kind, but the tone is far less somber than the first trailer. No moping here: the team is preparing for action. (Eagle-eyed watchers will note that the trailer pays tribute to the fallen at the very beginning.)In theaters April 26, 2019.Trailer for Toy Story 4 (2019) 97%The just-released Toy Story 4 spot gave us some insight into Ducky and Bunny (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) who terrorize/annoy Buzz as they share wall space at a country fair carnival game. To infinity and my foot! In theaters June 21, 2019.Trailer for Our Planet 93%Nature doc lovers, rejoice! Netflix just dropped a 30-second trailer for its natural history series, Our Planet, which comes from the creators of Planet Earth, working with the World Wildlife Fund, and is narrated – of course – by Sir David Attenborough. It’s a mammoth project: shot over four years in 50 countries, the series featured 600 crew members who shot for more than 3,500 days in total.Our Planet is available to stream on Netflix from April 5.Trailer for The Twilight Zone 66%Following a very short look at the new Spock on Star Trek: Discovery, CBS faked a failed transmission and then transported us to The Twilight Zone. Or at least to an empty stadium where Zone reboot producer and narrator Jordan Peele asked, “What dimension are you even in?”The Twilight Zone debuts on CBS All Access April 1, 2019.Trailer for Captain Marvel (2019) 79%Marvel Studios latest spot for Captain Marvel didn t reveal too much we hadn t already seen, but it s all-action vibe was a different approach than what we ve seen from the marketing so far. Leaning into the film s tagline – Higher, further, faster – this punchy spot was all ass-kicking and attitude.In theaters March 8, 2019.Trailer for The Handmaid's Tale: Season 3 (2019) 82%Our first look at season 3 of Hulu s The Handmaid s Tale is a chilling parody of Reagan s Morning in America campaign commercials that ends with an incredible image: hundreds of handmaids standing in formation at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.Season 3 of The Handmaid s Tale is coming soon to Hulu.Trailer for Alita: Battle Angel (2019) 61%The James Cameron-produced, Robert Rodriguez-directed Alita: Battle Angel released a new TV spot during the Super Bowl pre-show, with the focus squarely on Mahershala Ali’s villain and messaging pushing the film as a must-see 3-D event. That falls in line with what early reviews have been saying: while the film lacks a little something in the script department, critics are almost unanimous that the movie provides plenty of big-screen spectacle.In theaters February 14, 2019.Four mini teasers for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) 77%Horror mastermind Guillermo del Toro produces this CBS Film s thriller from director André Øvredal (Trollhunter), which sees a group of teenagers trying to solve the mystery behind a series of deaths in their small town. The first two mini teasers are light on detail, but big on creepiness, with the first featuring a chilling we re next and a jump-scare reveal of the kind of monster only Del Toro could conjure, and the second showing that hiding under your bed isn t going to save you. One more mini teaser is expected to drop throughout the Super Bowl broadcast.The third and shortest teaser shows mysterious trouble in a red-lit hallway. If you want a clearer look at the Pale Lady at the end of the hallway, CBS Films has supplied.The team behind Scary Stories to Tell In the Dark saved the grossest vignette until last, with their mini teaser revealed in the fourth quarter giving horror fans a mirror scare for the ages.In theaters August 9, 2019.Trailer for Us (2019) 93%Our second look at Jordan Peele s Get Out follow-up, Us, is just as freaky as the first. The film – which sees a family attacked by a group of doppelgängers while on vacation – is set to open the South By Southwest Film Festival in March.In theaters March 22, 2019.Trailer for Wonder Park (2019) 34%An all-star voice cast headlines this American-Spanish animation co-production, with Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson, Matthew Broderick, Kenan Thompson, John Oliver, and Mila Kunis all on board. The film tells the tale of a young girl who discovers that the amusement park she imagined as a young girl is actually real – and under threat. The just-released Super Bowl trailer promises plenty of sassy animals and rollercoaster-style action.In theaters March 15, 2019.Trailer for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) 67%Remember when the Fast and the Furious franchise was all about relatively modest muscle cars and the family that raced them? This new trailer – which we expect to be shown during the game (perhaps in a shorter form) – shows just how far the Furious team has come, with a spinoff that features Idris Elba as a cyber-genetically enhanced villain and Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham racing each other down the face of a building with ropes and an elevator, respectively, as you do.In theaters August 2, 2019.Trailer for Hanna 80%Game watchers got another look at the Amazon Prime Video adaptation of Joe Wright s film, Hanna, the first episode of which is available for 24 hours following the game – but will disappear after that until the series launches in March.The pilot Hanna debuts on Amazon Prime Video after the game and is available for 24 hours.Trailer for Million Dollar MileThis latest entry in the American Ninja Warrior-style average-people-doing-extraordinary-things genre comes to us via executive producer LeBron James.Prepare to watch world-class athletes go up against some of the most inspiring people in the world. The chase begins March 27 at 9/8c. #MillionDollarMile pic.twitter.com/9OCTG2p15o Million Dollar Mile (@MillionDollar) February 4, 2019Million Dollar Mile premieres on CBS March 27, 2019.
逆龙战 se two incredible heroes! @falconandwinter episode 1 is 48 glorious minutes and ends with a WHAT moment! Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyAlso, I’m not sure if this excites anyone but me but it’s a long episode (I think nearly 50 minutes) coming off most of the other original Disney+ shows which have (for the most part) hugged that 30 minute runtime (before the extra long credits). Hoping that continues. Peter Sciretta, SlashFilmHOW DOES IT FIT INTO THE MCU?(Photo by Marvel Studios)First episode of Falcon and The Winter Soldier feels like a Marvel movie in a big way, a lot more so than Wandavision (not a knock). Peter Sciretta, SlashFilmSaw 1st ep of @disneyplus @MarvelStudios #TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier and -as a HUGE fan of 2014 s CAPTAIN AMERICA: TWS- am happy to report this is a return to that grounded, more human glimpse into the MCU. Max Evry, ComingSoon.net#TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier has some really touching ties to the MCU and those are some of my favorite parts of Episode 1 References to other characters, questions about the Avengers, the world s view of Endgame storylines some small-scale, fun MCU world building. Brandon Davis, ComicBook.comSure, it s totally different than #WandaVision, but Falcon and the Winter Soldier holds to the Phase 4 recurring theme: the real damage from #Endgame was the emotional trauma. Amy Fulcher, FandangoHOW EPIC IS THE ACTION?(Photo by Marvel Studios)The opening action screen feels like a huge MCU action sequence (and not a tv fight), story feels like it has significant MCU consequences. Peter Sciretta, SlashFilmIf FALCON AND WINTER SOLDIER is content to be just a fun action romp full of juicy Marvel world-building, the first episode is certainly promising. But considering the talent behind the camera, I suspect/hope for a wild left turn. Jacob Hall, SlashFilmI ve watched the first episode of #TheFalconAndWinterSoldier it s solid. Definitely more somber dramatic at the start than I was expecting (which is a good thing), but also features the best Falcon action we ve seen yet. Good mix of fights story. I m sold hungry for more. Erik Davis, FandangoThe first episode of #TheFalconAndWinterSoldier is loaded with action that you’d expect to see in an MCU movie. Steven Weintraub, ColliderIf the first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is any indication of the whole season, fans are in for an action packed treat! Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyDO ANTHONY MACKIE AND SEBASTIAN STAN MAKE A GOOD TEAM?Mackie and Stan bring new emotional depth to #BuckyBarnes and #SamWilson as they try to redefine themselves outside of Cap’s legacy. Charles Murphy, Murphy s MultiverseOh hey I guess I can say I’ve seen the first episode of #FalconAndWinterSoldier? Probably more character development for these 2 characters in these 45 minutes than the previous 10 films. Josh Horowitz, MTV News@AnthonyMackie gets to explore Sam s place in a very divided world.- Max Evry, ComingSoon.net#FalconAndWinterSoldier shows a side of Sam Bucky that we ve never seen before as they try to adjust to a world w/o Cap, dealing with real human issues that prove unless you re an A-lister, things are a bit more complicated on the ground. Mackie Stan are both phenomenal! Rohan Patel, ComicBookMovie.comBut for me the best stuff were the quiet scenes that showed Bucky dealing with his past and Falcon trying to figure out his post-blip life. Big thumbs up. Steven Weintraub, ColliderThe first episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will premiere on Disney+ on Thursday, March 19.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.

tended editions: 20 hours 30 minutes; Theatrical cuts: 17 hours and 12 minutes.Starts with: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Ends with: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) Best way to watch: Some would argue the second trilogy – though the first by story chronology – from Peter Jackson was an unnecessary and bloated cash grab that should be avoided at all costs, but we have a better suggestion. We suggest you begin with the LOTR animated film from 1978, which will give you all the events of the films in a quicker and to-the-point format. Then, if you are compelled to see the best of The Hobbit live-action series, we would say check out the standard edition of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which is the best of the three. We would also suggest you try to watch the extended editions of the original live-action LOTR series – they are more than worth it for the extra content. This recommendation would make for a shorter, 16-hour watch, which could be broken up easily over two days. Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. The Two Towers and The Lord of The Rings: The Return of the King standard editions are streaming on Netflix.Marvel Cinematic UniverseWhat is it: The 23-film saga that chronicles the epic adventures of various superheroes, based on the comics first distributed by Marvel and its subsidiaries. How many hours: 50 hours and 3 minutes.Starts with: Iron Man (2008) Ends with: Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) Best way to watch: Not surprising for a franchise that grossed over billion at the global box office, but Marvel Studios 23-film, decade-long opus is quite watchable as is. Some folks would have argued in 2010 that Avengers: The Age of Ultron is a skippable mess, but as we detail here, it is essential viewing to truly appreciate the first four phases of the saga that culminated with Avengers: Endgame. Sorry for those looking for a shortcut, but watching it all is worth it. Viewing all 23 movies straight through, without breaks, however, is not the way to do it.Instead, we suggest you go in release order and complete each day as follows: day one after Avengers; day two after Ant-man; day three after Black Panther; and finish on day four with Spider-Man: Far From Home. If you ve previously watched the MCU and are looking to watch it in a new way, use our guide here to watch in chronological order based on the events of each film. If the thought of 50 hours of superheroes is still too intimidating for you, but you want to understand enough to get by, watch these character introduction films (Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy) and these team-up films (Civil War, Winter Soldier, Avengers, Ultron, Infinity War, Endgame). Once you have finished that, check out our Oral Histories of the MCU, in which the directors, producer, and casting director who worked on the epic franchise break down all the behind-the-scene secrets.Where to watch: FandangoNOW, Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. All of the films save The Incredible Hulk and the Spider-Man films are streaming on Disney+. The Avengers: Infinity War and The Avengers: Endgame are streaming on Netflix; and Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, and Thor are streaming on Amazon Prime.Die Hard FranchiseWhat is it: Follow John McClane, a police detective who seems to be a magnet for maniacal criminals no matter which city/structure he is in, and proves to be a tough man to kill.How many hours: 10 hours and 14 minutes.Starts with: Die Hard (1988) Ends with: A Good Day to Die Hard (2013) Best way to watch: The original Die Hard is so beloved that many argue it s the greatest action film ever made – or maybe the greatest Christmas movie, but that is a debate for another day. The film and its follow-ups have a loyal fanbase, and though the second and third entries pale in comparison to the first, we still say they re worth a watch. The fourth film, Live Free or Die Hard, is a true return to form and, frankly, it s where you should stop unless you are a true completist. The series most recent film, A Good Day to Die Hard, is the only PG-13 entry on the list, and without McClane s iconic Yippee-ki-yay, motherf ker, there s really no point pushing play.Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discounted Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Die Hard and Die Hard with a Vengeance are streaming now on CinemaxGo; Live Free or Die Hard is streaming on the Starz app.The Fast Furious FranchiseWhat is it: Follow Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew, which he calls his family, as they shift from illegal street-racing criminals to heist experts and then finally emerge as a new crime-fighting unit that tackles the world of espionage.How many hours: 15 hours and 57 mins. Starts with: The Fast and the Furious (2001) Ends with: Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Best way to watch: As Dom and everyone in the Fast franchise says – quite often – this is about family. So, if you re looking for something to skip, it s hard to imagine who you d want to kick out one of the family – though, let s be honest, 2 Fast 2 Furious is definitely not Dad s favorite. Without Vin Diesel, that entry can barely call itself a Fast and Furious movie, and the 2009 series soft reboot, Fast Furious, is not much better and an easy call to skip, as well. We would caution against skipping third entry Toyko Drift; its charms are significantly more than its 37% Tomatometer score would suggest (something we wax about in our book Rotten Movies We Love). Not to spoil anything, but when we finally get Fast 9 in 2021, you ll need to have seen Tokyo Drift to understand everything fully – check out #JusticeForHan after you finish the series, and you will understand. Where to watch: FandangoNOW, Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Hobbs Shaw and Fast Five are streaming on HBOnow; Fast 6 is streaming on FXnow.Rocky FranchiseWhat is it: Follow Philly underdog boxer-turned-champion, Rocky Balboa, as he battles various fighters in the ring, as well as his own issues outside of it, and later trains the next generation of champions.How many hours: 14 hours and 55 minutes. Starts with: Rocky (1976) Ends with: Creed II (2018)Best way to watch: This one s real simple: trust us and skip Rocky V. Just pretend it didn t happen; we re pretty sure Sylvester Stallone did. Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Rocky Balboa is streaming on the Starz app; Creed II is streaming on Hulu and Amazon.Harry Potter / Wizarding World FranchiseWhat is it: The franchise based on JK Rowling s phenomenally successful novels follows the adventures of Harry Potter, an orphan-turned-famed wizard, the evil He Who Must Not Be Named, and the Wizarding World they inhabit.How many hours: 24 hours and 6 minutes. Starts with: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Ends with: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) Best way to watch: As this is a British series, allow us to put this as politely as possible: Fantastic Beasts is simply not quite on form. The first entry is saved by Eddie Redmayne and mesmerizing magical effects; the second entry is the first and only Rotten flick from the Wizarding World and very skippable at this stage. The original seven films are near perfect, but if you wanted to pass over The Chamber of Secrets you wouldn t miss much – you won t be too confused later in the series. (Though if watching as a family, this is one the kids tend to like.) If you follow that suggestion, you can finish the entire series in one day.Where to watch: FandangoNOW (Discount Bundle), Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, GooglePlay. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is streaming on HBONow.X-Men Franchise
