It looks like the world really is more interesting with Clarice Starling in it.On February 11, CBS will premiere new series Clarice, a psychological horror drama that follows what happened to the FBI Academy’s famed behavioral science expert after the events depicted in author Thomas Harris’ novel, The Silence of the Lambs. Set in 1993 — meant to be a year after the timing of director Jonathan Demme and writer Ted Tally’s film adaptation of that book — fans will see how she is dealing (or not dealing) with the trauma of her experiences with serial killers Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) and Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine) as she returns to the field to investigate more murders and mayhem.And, because series creators Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet are not concentrating on plots straight from a Harris novel, viewers will also see a different version of Clarice herself — and not just because she’s now being played by Australian actress Rebecca Breeds instead of Jodie Foster’s Academy Award–winning depiction of the FBI officer in Lambs or Julianne Moore’s depiction of her in 2001’s Hannibal.Clarice Season 1 Keyart Exclusive Debut: (Photo by CBS)Click image to open the full-sized poster in a new tab. “The story continues to be told; it continues to evolve,” Breeds told Rotten Tomatoes from the show s filming home base of Toronto after a night of shooting the new series’ seventh episode. “So I need to be able to continue to invent who she is in different scenarios. So I have to pull from what is authentic and what is me, because that s all I can do.”To wit: The poster for the series, which Rotten Tomatoes is exclusively debuting here, is a metamorphosis of the cover associated with Lambs.

Do we really need another Toy Story movie? For a significant chunk of moviegoers, that was the first question that came to mind when Toy Story 4 was announced, but here we are, almost a decade after Toy Story 3, and it looks like the wait was worth it. Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and most of the rest of the voice cast are back albeit in a slightly more limited capacity in a new adventure that centers on a homemade toy named Forky (voiced by Tony Hale) who s having trouble comprehending and accepting his own existence. Woody takes it upon himself to help Forky fit in, and in the process, he reconnects with an old friend and begins to reexamine his own choices. It was always going to take a monumental achievement to make a return trip to this universe worthwhile, and by most accounts, critics say first-time director Josh Cooley has succeeded. The Certified Fresh Toy Story 4 is yet another triumph for Pixar that somehow manages to find poignant new ways to tug on heartstrings and entertain audiences of all ages, and with a supporting voice cast of new characters that includes Christina Hendricks, Key Peele, and Keanu Reeves, this one is poised to be another hit.

1.18.1 4月喜迎The day after Game of Thrones aired one of its longest episodes ever — the super-sized, near-feature-length epic “The Last of the Starks” — SundanceTV premiered a series with episodes that clock in at a tidy 10 minutes each.Ten-episode series State of the Union stars Rosamund Pike and Chris O’Dowd as a married couple going through a rough patch after a “spot of infidelity.” Each episode follows the pair in real-time as they meet in a pub before going across the street to marital counselling, discussing how they got to where they are and the events of the previous session every week. Director Stephen Frears captures these conversations, which go from heartfelt to hilarious at a moment’s notice.State of the Union, which is currently 100% Fresh with 15 reviews, is just one example of a growing trend of high-quality short-form programming, a format that was once the realm of viral YouTube videos and is now getting attention from mainstream studios and well-funded startups.Snapchat is making serious investments in original content, Netflix’s sketch comedy series I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson is being praised for its peppy 15-minute episodes, and former Disney and DreamWorks Animation bigwig Jeffrey Katzenberg is looking to jumpstart a whole new entertainment industry with short-form start-up, Quibi, led by CEO Meg Whitman.Nick Hornby’s Comedy Experiment — in Brief(Photo by Parisatag Hizadeh/Confession Films/SundanceTV)But State of the Union’s writer, High Fidelity and About a Boy scribe Nick Hornby, wasn’t looking to disrupt anything when he came up with the idea.“That was just something I wanted to try to see if I could have any fun with it or make it work,” Hornby told Rotten Tomatoes. “I had the idea of the setup, people talking immediately before therapy, sometime before.”The constraints of the short-form format were an unexpected source of creative freedom, the author and screenwriter added.“Even though I [only] had 10 pages, those 10 pages were actually very liberating,” he said. “Certainly with movies no one is going to let you write a scene with 10 minutes of dialogue in it.”The dialogue is, essentially, the whole show, although both O’Dowd and especially Pike speak volumes with just their facial expressions as the two sit down across a pub table and attempt to determine what they feel for one another. Hornby stressed that the short length of the series didn’t necessarily make things easier for the actors, because actors “never get parts where they have literally 50 percent of the script,” as is the case in this series.Even though State of the Union is primarily a comedy, the couple’s conversations have real emotional heft.“I think that State of the Union, although it can be consumed in bite-size chunks, actually demands a lot of attention,” executive producer Jamie Laurenson said. “It’s very funny and entertaining, but you have to concentrate. It’s not lightweight because it’s small in size.”Streamer Quibi Bets on MobileAlthough Katzenberg’s Quibi is yet to launch, the Hollywood veteran’s new venture is aiming to capture a similar sort of feeling — snackable, but filling. The name itself is short for quick bites. Katzenberg and Whitman announced some details this weekend at the Produced By conference on Saturday in Los Angeles, and Katzenberg revealed more on Sunday at the Banff World Media Festival. Some of the details that emerged:Quibi will launch in the U.S. on April 6, 2020There will be two pricing tiers at launch: the first, for .99, with one pre-roll ad before each video segment, including a 10-second ad if the video is less than 5 minutes, and a 15-second ad for 5- to 10-minute videos. 2. an ad-free option at .99Approximately 7,000 pieces of content will be available within the first yearThe company will spend billion on contentThe service s core-demo is aged 25-35Videos to be 7-10 minutesSome of the announced content includes:An untitled horror series from Steven Spielberg, four episodes of which Spielberg will write himself.#Freerayshawn starring Stephen James and Laurence Fishburne about Iraq War veteran Rayshawn (James), who is on the run after being set up by New Orleans police on a drug deal. The million project is from Sony Pictures Television.An untitled Steven Soderbergh project.A non-scripted series from James Corden’s Fulwell 73 featuring Israeli mentalist Lior Suchard.Punk’d and Singled Out reboots from MTV Studios.Anna Kendrick comedy Dummy from Deadbeat co-creator Cody Heller and independent studio Wiip.In a keynote presentation at South by Southwest this March, Katzenberg explained that Quibi, in addition to creating content that is specifically created for the time and technical demands of mobile viewing — the shows will be full screen in landscape and portrait mode, for example — will borrow from both film and TV. So they’ll be feature length, but broken up into episodes that are easy to squeeze in or to binge, whatever the viewer’s circumstances demand.“We’re bringing those two creative, narrative forces together,” Katzenberg said at the time. “A series, for us, is a two- to two-and-a-half-hour story, told in act breaks that are eight to 10 minutes long.Katzenberg s vision has drawn top talent and top dollar, and he makes the case that the startup is an entertainment pioneer akin to HBO, which seemed like a risky venture when it first came on the scene. He and other players in the short-form game are trying to tap into an uncharted market: would-be viewers who want quality, narrative storytelling that’s broken into chunks that fit into their busy (and mobile) modern lives.Snackable Storytelling Treats to Take on the Go(Photo by Parisatag Hizadeh/Confession Films/SundanceTV)“I know Quibi has very specific ambitions for their version of short-form content, and I think Jeffrey Katzenberg has publicly stated that he thinks it’s the answer to capturing younger audiences,” Hakan Kousetta, COO of Television for State of the Union producer See Saw Films, told Rotten Tomatoes. “I’m not sure I quite agree with that, but I do think that giving people as much opportunity to watch programs when they want in a way that’s convenient to them will always be the answer to increasing demand.”If that’s a 10-minute episode on a bus ride while waiting for a dentist appointment, great. If it’s binging an entire series so that it essentially acts like a feature-length movie, also great. State of the Union, for instance, which premiered with all 10 episodes running back-to-back like a film at Sundance, still holds up in this format.“You can watch three episodes back-to-back and have a half-an-hour slot show, or you can watch 100 minutes back-to-back, and it all works,” Kousetta said. “It doesn’t shortchange you if you want to consume it in that way.”For his part, Hornby didn’t concern himself too much with the question of whether he was making a movie or if he was making a TV series.“I really didn’t know what it was,” he said. “It was a TV show because it was bought by people who wanted to make it into a TV show. I didn’t ever think of it as being a movie. I thought it might be something that people might snack on. You know, watch on their phones while they’re sitting on the bus, or whatever, but you could have a complete experience over quite a short period of time.”Put another way, Hornby said, it’s a great alternative to mindlessly scrolling on your phone.“I think if you watch one episode on your daily commute,” he said, “maybe it’s better than flicking through YouTube videos or Instagram.”State of the Union is available to watch in full at SundanceTV.

(Photo by © AMC)And so, with an explosion and some reflection, Andrew Lincoln s final episode of The Walking Dead aired Sunday night with at least two (somewhat) surprising turns. The episode also confirmed some people s suspicions about how his Rick Grimes would exit the series, while establishing the series new status quo in its final moments.But considering Rick spent much of the episode looking back on his life and his journey —with special visits from departed friends like Shane (Jon Bernthal), Herschel (the late Scott Wilson), and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) — we were also left in a contemplative mood as AMC aired a special preview of the next three episodes. Specifically, Shane s notion that Rick always had it in him had us thinking about his penchant for violence. While it was typically in the service of his family, it also took on brutal forms as he journeyed from King County to the bridge near Alexandria. So let s take a look back at some of the key kills which defined Rick and informed one of his most surprising decisions.SPOILER WARNING: The below contains spoilers for all seasons of The Walking Dead. Extinguishing Hannah The Bicycle Girl: Season 1, Episode 1: "Days Gone Bye" 100%In some ways, it all really comes back to Rick’s first kill, the Bicycle Girl. The make-up effects and overall mood of the scene featuring Bicycle Girl (Melissa Cowan) were so impressive that AMC went back later to tell the story of Hannah (Lilli Birdsell), the person who once inhabited the corpse Rick encountered. But for Rick, she marks two important moments. She is the first undead corpse he encounters after waking up from his coma and the first walker he kills — even if she can’t technically walk. Though Rick has killed many, many walkers and people since that day, it is the real beginning of his post-apocalyptic life. And though he has accepted he must kill these creatures, he apologizes to the former Hannah nonetheless, establishing a pattern of mercy kills for some time to come.Shooting Sophia: Season 2, Episode 7: "Pretty Much Dead Already" 93%While killing Shane was one of the most significant moments of the second season, the way Rick took charge to shoot Carol’s (Melissa McBride) daughter Sophia (Madison Lintz) established just how easily Rick can set aside his humanity to dispatch a walker with a familiar face. The girl disappeared in the season 2 premiere, only to be discovered when Shane let loose Herchel’s collection of zombies in the barn; after Shane and some of the others dealt with most of the walkers, Sophia’s corpse stumbled out. While the others stood by devastated — and Daryl (Norman Reedus) held Carol back from running to her — Rick took charge and ended the girl’s afterlife. Like Bicycle Girl, it was another mercy kill. But when it comes down to it, Rick demonstrated the capacity to shoot a child. Sure, a walker child, but the swiftness of his actions would reverberate for years to come.(Photo by @ AMC)Offering Tomas A Look At His Machete: Season 3, Episode 2: "Sick" 94%And then there came the day when Rick’s choice to use lethal force switches from errands of mercy to a baser instinct. In the wake of killing Shane, Rick’s ability to trust was at an all-time low; which meant the men he and the group discovered in the West Georgia Correctional Facility were the least likely people to ever get on his good side. Nonetheless, Rick and the men came to an accord: he would help them clear a cellblock infested with walkers for a portion of the remaining food in the cafeteria. It seemed like a good deal until de facto prison leader Tomas (Nick Gomez) allowed the laundry room to fill with walkers and he made two not-so-subtle attempts to end Rick. After the first attempt, Tomas played it off like an accident, saying “s t happens.” Following the second, Rick responded in kind before slamming his machete into Tomas’s skull. As the first significant kill of the prison storyline, Rick’s ruthless murder of Tomas proved any hesitation he once had about killing the living was well and truly gone.Biting Joe The Claimer: Season 4, Episode 16: "A" 90%While searching Georgia in search of Terminus, Rick, Daryl, Carl (Chandler Riggs), and Michonne (Danai Gurira) found themselves “guests” of The Claimers. Sore about the loss of one their men, Claimer leader Joe (Jeff Kober) announced his plan to kill Rick and Daryl while some of his men rape and kill Carl and Michonne. Rick, unarmed but in a rage, headbutted Joe, leading to a major scuffle. Joe managed to get the upper-hand and pinned Rick, but Rick delivered a killing blow by biting Joe in the neck and ripping out part of his jugular. In the chaos, Rick, Michonne and Daryl managed to kill the other Claimers, but Rick’s animalistic maneuver made it possible. As he later told Daryl, his brutality keeps the group alive.Trapping The Terminants: Season 5, Episode 3: "Four Walls and a Roof" 87%Having survived the journey from the prison to Terminus only to discover there was no sanctuary there, Rick and the others led some of the remaining cannibalistic “Terminants” into an ambush at St. Sarah’s Church. The cannibals were dispatched with Rick saving a special slaughter for their leader, Gareth (Andrew J. West). But unlike some of the other brutal reprisals Rick delivered on our list, here he led the others into orchestrating a mass killing, indicating a potential despotic megalomania should they ever settle down in one place. Sure, they were being chased by cannibals, but once a person is forced into a corner like that, they leave some of their humanity behind. Additionally, Rick’s refusal to hear Gareth’s pleas of mercy — and the way Rick hacked him up — stood in sharp contrast to his more merciful self only a few years prior.Executing Pete Anderson: Season 5, Episode 16: "Conquer" 83%After facing the Terminants, Rick and his team reached the Alexandria Safe-Zone and were invited into the tract home community lead by Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh). Soon after Rick and Michonne became Alexandria constables, he began to tussle with community doctor Pete Anderson (Corey Brill) as he suspected the local physician got off on beating his wife. The situation led to Rick’s incarceration and a community meeting in which Pete killed Deanna’s husband. She gave Rick the go-ahead to execute him, which he did with cold efficiency. Like the Claimers and the Terminants before Pete, Rick’s lethal response came without the regard he once had for human life. And it would have been more terrifying and de-humanizing for the character if Rick wasn’t right once again.(Photo by © AMC)Leaving Jessie And Sam Anderson Behind: Season 6, Episode 9: "No Way Out" 97%In the wake of Pete’s death, Rick became close with his widow, Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge). But the bond didn t quite hold strong enough when Rick was faced with letting her die to save Carl. Due to circumstances peculiar to The Walking Dead, Alexandria was overrun with walkers. In the chaos, Rick attempted to save himself, Carl, Jessie, and her children by using the walker-blood camouflage again. But, during the escape, Jessie’s youngest son Sam (Major Dodson) froze at the sight of another child walker and began to cry, attracting walker attention. Jessie tried her best to quiet him and get him moving, but in her own panic, she latched onto Carl’s hand. Deciding that she was dooming everyone to death, Rick made the only “sane” choice and cut off her hand off with a hatchet so Carl could get free. The walkers devoured Jessie and Sam as Rick’s cold-blooded streak expanded to people he cared about.Sparing Negan: Season 8, Episode 16: "Wrath" 76%Then there was Rick’s one act of violence which, in the end, did not lead to someone dying. Rick’s journey was leading to this moment: After all the times he was forced to set aside his humanity to kill walkers with familiar faces, end imminent threats to Carl, and sacrifice others close to him, Rick chose not to exact vengeance on Savior leader Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Well, he still cut the man’s throat open, but his decision to order Siddiq (Avi Nash) to save him is the sort of mercy generally in short supply on The Walking Dead — especially when you consider how long he and Negan battled. Additionally, it is very surprising that Rick could reclaim some sense of mercy for the man who brutally beat Glen (Steven Yeun) to death.But maybe sparing Negan was the only way Rick could become truly human again. In the 18 months following Rick’s act of mercy, he did a lot to rebuild the community around him. And in defeating Negan without brutally murdering him, Rick seemed to reclaim some sort of hope for the future.(Photo by © AMC)
(Photo by HBO)Expectations for the final season of Game of Thrones were higher than the Red Keep’s tallest spire, and, unfortunately, fans and critics alike were not universally impressed with the way creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss ended the story. Unlike the previous seven seasons — all of which are Certified Fresh with Tomatometer scores well into the 90s — season 8 is not only the lowest-scoring season on the Tomatometer, it is also the first-ever Rotten season of HBO’s fantasy series.How does that work? Let s do a bit of math: While the average score of each of season 8’s episodes is a Fresh 68%, a number of season-level reviews (those that consider the season in its entirety) published following the finale have brought the overall season score down into the Rotten range.“This final season was all about big-huge set pieces, and a lot of the complexity burned away,” wrote Entertainment Weekly’s Darren Franich of the season as a whole. And Slate’s Willa Paskin noted in her review of the series finale, “Benioff and Weiss organized their entire series around an ending that they didn’t write to.”But Thrones is not the only beloved series that critics felt whiffed its final at-bat. Series with high expectations for their final episodes include everything from HBO’s bro-tastic showbiz satire Entourage to PBS’ prestige TV detective drama Sherlock. And though those expectations might not have been quite as high as the dizzying, dragon-y heights that GoT needed to live up to, both of those series similarly seemed to let down longtime viewers.Below, Rotten Tomatoes has gathered a list of beloved series whose early seasons were high-scoring and usually Certified Fresh — meaning they all received a large number of reviews, with many from top critics, and a score of more than 75% on the Tomatometer — and whose last season or two descended into Rotten territory. Some shows, like The Office, The West Wing, or How I Met Your Mother, managed to turn Rotten penultimate seasons around into Fresh final ones (which is why those three are not included below). But others, including Game of Thrones, Dexter, and Arrested Development, take their place among history’s best-reviewed shows with poorly reviewed endings.A note: We’ve only included series with robust scores, and we would also like to reiterate that this is not an indictment of the included series, but rather a numbers-focused presentation of score drops.Game of Thrones 89% (Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Highest-rated season: Game of Thrones: Season 4 (2014) 97%Final season: Game of Thrones: Season 8 (2019) 55%Drop: 44%While showrunners Benioff and Weiss were never going to please everyone, critics pointed to the series penultimate episode, The Bells, as a prime example of how a transportive, well-acted, smartly written drama even non-genre fans can appreciate (per the RT Critics Consensus for season 1) could devolve into such a divisive experience for fans. The Critics Consensus for The Bells in particular echoes a common complaint from the show s closing moments: too much plot in too little time muddles the story and may leave some viewers feeling its conclusions are unearned. Dexter 71% (Photo by Showtime)Highest-rated season: Dexter: Season 2 (2007) 96%Final season: Dexter: Season 8 (2013) 33%Drop: 61%Seasons 1, 2, 4, 5, and 7 of Showtime’s serial killer drama are all Certified Fresh, but seasons 6 and 8 plunged into Rotten territory. The Critics Consensus for season 6 counts “heavy-handed symbolism, an unimpressive villain, and a redundant arc for America s favorite serial killer” among the reasons for its low score, while the season 8 summary calls it a “a bitterly disappointing final season that is so hesitant to punish its anti-hero for his misdeeds, it opts to punish its audience instead.”Weeds 70% (Photo by Showtime)Highest-rated season: Weeds: Season 2 (2006) 100%Final season: Weeds: Season 8 (2012) 40%Drop: 60%The dark comedy followed suburban widow Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) as she began to deal pot to make ends meet following the unexpected death of her husband — and eventually transformed into an international drug kingpin. But while the first season was Certified Fresh and the subsequent ones were generally well-liked, RT’s Critics Consensus for the eighth and final season notes that the “final installment burns the series remaining goodwill down to a sorry roach with perfunctory plotting and a sense that this story no longer resembles the one fans fell in love with.”The Killing 68% (Photo by AMC)Highest-rated season: The Killing: Season 1 (2011) 94%Final season: The Killing: Season 4 (2014) 47%Drop: 53%The Seattle-set slow-burn mystery pursued by homicide detectives Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) started off with “thoughtful writing, believable characters, and realistic horror, even if its season finale was unsatisfying,” per the first season’s Critics Consensus. By the fourth season, resurrected by Netflix following AMC’s cancellation, it succumbed to “silliness” and strayed into “distractingly overwrought territory.”True Blood 70% (Photo by HBO)Highest-rated season: True Blood: Season 3 (2010) 91%Final season: True Blood: Season 7 (2014) 44%Drop: 51%HBO’s vampire drama, based on the Southern Gothic Sookie Stackhouse book series by bestselling author Charlaine Harris, took a few seasons for critics to warm up to it (it started at a barely Fresh 61% in season 1 and reached a series high of 95% in season 3). But the third season’s “graphic thrills, steamy romance, and biting satire for its fans” made way for a Rotten final two seasons, as the series ran out of steam and its seventh season was “content to limp along on familiar plot points.”Arrested Development 74% (Photo by Netflix)Highest-rated season: Arrested Development: Season 1 (2003) 100%Final season: Arrested Development: Season 5 (2018) 55%Drop: 45%, though the drop from season 1 to season 4 was even more drastic at 73%The first season of the formerly short-lived Fox gem is among the rare seasons Certified Fresh at 100%, and the subsequent two seasons that aired on the broadcast network are also strong with 94% and 100% Tomatometer scores, respectively. Netflix’s revival, on the other hand, can’t quite “live up to its own past.” At least the series’ fifth season (55%) was a bit of a second chance for the cast and creators, as season 4’s Critics Consensus put it simply: “They ve made a huge mistake.” (Though the series has not officially been canceled, there s no word on whether Netflix plans to make another season.)UnREAL 81% (Photo by Lifetime)Highest-rated season: UnREAL: Season 1 (2015) 98%Final season: UnREAL: Season 4 () 50%Drop: 43%All three seasons of the dark, Bachelor-skewering drama that aired on Lifetime were Certified Fresh and brought renewed respect to the female-focused network. The fourth season, however, “fizzled out” and went directly to Hulu (“but the clever antics, confidence, and high energy” remained intact, per the season 4 CC).Sherlock 78% (Photo by Laurence Cendrowicz/Hartswood Films & MASTERPIECE)Highest-rated season: Sherlock: Season 2 (2012) 94%Final season: Sherlock: Season 4 (2017) 54%Drop: 39%The first three full seasons of Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat’s modern Sherlock Holmes adaptations were all Certified Fresh with scores in the 90s. But the 2015 Christmas special wasn’t quite as well-received, and the fourth season, which came four years after season 3, was marred by “the lofty expectations created by the series lengthy hiatus.” Hm, sounds familiar…Entourage 66% (Photo by HBO)Highest-rated season: Entourage: Season 5 (2008) 76%Final season: Entourage: Season 8 (2011) 46%Drop: 30%While the Hollywood antics of heartthrob Vinny Chase (Adrian Grenier) and his hangers-on were mostly well-received — most seasons of the HBO comedy are sitting comfortably in the 70s — the seventh season saw a turn as poorly received as Chase’s fictional epic, Medellin. As season 8’s Critics Consensus put it, “With Entourage s best stories behind it, the series finale feels like a merciful end.”Prison Break 60% (Photo by Fox)Highest-rated season: Prison Break: Season 1 (2005) 77%Final season: Prison Break: Season 4 (2008) 50%Drop: 27%The Fox drama’s self-explanatory title meant that the series was always going to have to fight against its own premise — there are only so many prisons to break out of, after all — but after a Certified Fresh debut season and a second installment that maintained the series’ “propulsive momentum,” per season 2’s CC, things went downhill. The third and fourth seasons were both Rotten at 50% — and while the original series finale delivered closure for fans, “the season s ludicrous, plot-breaking twists betray the feeling that this saga should have ended a jailbreak or two before.” Fox’s 2017 revival nearly a decade after the series’ original end, didn’t fare much better: “familiar faces and frenetic action aren t enough to make up for a plot that manages to bore while beggaring belief,” per the Critics Consensus.Like this?

Manuel Betancourt for Rotten Tomatoes: How did Bad Trip begin?Eric Andre: Well it s been seven and a half years since we first started talking about it. October 2013 is when Bad Grandpa came out. I was on season two of The Eric Andre Show and my agent called me up and he goes, Hey man, you re going to go see Bad Grandpa this weekend? I was like, Hell yeah. And he goes, Dude, I think it s gonna make like 100 million bucks. It s, like, testing through the roof. And then he was like, You should make one of those movies. Still to this day, I don t know how to write a movie. All I know are jokes and pranks. I m a joke writer, not a story writer. I didn t know the importance of story. So we were throwing spaghetti at the wall for years, developing the idea and building it up and bringing it down and building it up. It was like we went to film school without going. We just had to educate ourselves on how to read a story, and then we teamed up with [Bad Grandpa’s director] Jeff Tremaine, and then we just kept cracking away at it. But it was an ongoing process until the very end of editing, and we finished editing the movie 2019. So it was a long and winding road.RT: What was the most terrifying scene to shoot? I was terrified for you during so many of them.Andre: Yeah, I mean we shot a lot in Georgia and it s an open carry state so…There s a scene where Rel and I, we have our penises stuck in a Chinese finger trap — you know, as it s known to happen. And we went into a really hood barber shop in Atlanta and this dude took out a knife and chased us, trying to kill us. That was Rel’s not only day one of filming the movie, but the first hidden camera prank he ever filmed.RT: And he stuck with it!Andre: Barely! He quit the movie that day. He told me, just in the interview before this, that his kids talked him back into doing the movie. And because he almost got killed, he called Tiffany Haddish later that night to vent, and was like, Hey, Eric Andre put me in a stupid prank movie and he’s gonna get me killed. This guy took a knife out! I want to quit. So she starts dying laughing and calls me five minutes later and goes, You almost got Rel killed? And I was like, Yeah. And she goes, I wanna be in your movie. I live for that s t. So in a weird way, that got us Tiffany in the movie.Bad Trip is available on Netflix from March 26, 2021.On an Apple device?

亚博真人APP Hans Zimmer is one of just a handful of working movie music composers who can genuinely be called a household name. And no wonder: German-born Zimmer created the memorable scores for movies like Gladiator, The Dark Knight, and – Bwoaaaah! – Inception. Perhaps most famously, he composed the music for Disney s The Lion King, which was the first animated feature he had worked on (he would go on to compose scores for The Prince of Egypt, Madagascar, and more). Working closely with Lebo M., the South African artist whose voice many will know from the The Lion King s iconic opening chant, Zimmer created music for the Disney classic that terrified us as wildebeest stampeded through a canyon and moved us as a young lion stared at his own reflection and discovered a king staring back at him. It also nabbed him his first, and so far only, Academy Award. Zimmer recently returned to the story of Simba, Mufasa, Nala, and the rest of the Pride Lands characters for Jon Favreau s new take on The Lion King. Here Zimmer reveals what drew him back to the story, why he hesitated at first, and what s changed in the 25 years since the animated film s release.Joel Meares for Rotten Tomatoes: Someone I saw this movie with turned to me at the beginning and said, If I don t cry during the stampede, it will mean Hans hasn t done his job.” When I saw her at the end, she was bawling. So, I wanted to know how did you approach that particular scene the second time around?Hans Zimmer: Cautiously. If you think that was a dangerous comment, my oldest daughter who I d written the original movie s [music] for in the first place 25 years ago, she was still saying to me, Dad, you better not make a mess of this one. All the themes that I wrote all those years ago – I didn t know how to do animation [at the time] – so all the themes are slightly too epic and slightly too big, and they needed that little bit more space and that little bit more breath to really resonate. I mean, especially the stampede and its aftermath, I can t even put into words, you know, the benefit from having more space. More breathing room. More chance to battle. More chance to focus on the protagonist. More chance to focusing on the story.(Photo by ©Buena Vista Pictures/Courtesy Everett Collection)Rotten Tomatoes: You said that your daughter said, Don t make of a mess of it. Did you yourself have any personal hesitation about coming back to a project that you haven t worked on for a very long time and that was so beloved – and was kind of perfect already?Zimmer: Well, “kind of perfect,” I never think about things like that. But “loved,” yes. I had a very short conversation with Jon [Favreau], which basically went him saying, Come down, let me show you something. And that was 100 percent committing. I went down. He put me in a black room, showed me [footage of the film’s opening]. It completely and utterly surprised me and moved me, even though I sort of knew what to expect. And we look at it differently than we looked at it 25 years ago. I mean, we truly do. I ve spent now quite a bit of time working with Sir David Attenborough. So partly, I was looking at it from the sense of where s the world heading? It felt like I was on a slightly different mission. It was, even if the story is the same, the world has changed, so the meaning of the story has changed.Rotten Tomatoes: In terms of what was practically involved with producing the score, how did you approach it differently from the first time? Zimmer: In the last 30 years… Usually, I never leave a dark windowless room, but eventually I did, and eventually I got onto a stage, and eventually I – despite stage fright – I started playing things live. And I did Lion King at the Coachella festival, and performing it, and watching the reaction of an audience and performing it, it was like these amazing musicians that I now have access to, made me realize that this isn t a normal film score. We can do this as a performance. In a normal film score, the orchestra or the players never know why they are playing the notes, because they don t know the story. Everybody knew the story [this time]. So I managed to get a commitment that was just extraordinary, and the performance, and I made it all about the performance. I think for a movie that relies that much on technology, there s a sense of improvisation and a sense of performance in this movie, far more than the original one. And a sense of humanity in the story. Everything is slightly paradox, but I think that s what gives it its great strength.(Photo by Courtesy Everett Collection)Rotten Tomatoes: And so you performed everything on the score live with an orchestra?Zimmer: Yeah. I mean, I said to Jon and everybody at Disney, Can I do this? Can I try this experiment?” You know, I had 102 people in the room. We re just going to rehearse. We re just really going to get it under our fingers, and then we re just going to go and do the whole movie for a couple of days. And don t worry about wrong notes. Next time around, we ll probably figure it out. It truly was exciting. And that s what I was trying to do, is get the authenticity of really hearing the musicians.Rotten Tomatoes: When you originally wrote the music for the stampede scene, the track To Die For in the original and new score, were you drawing from compositions or scores that you had heard before? What inspired the musical moment there?Zimmer: Not really. I mean, I ll tell you what I did draw from. It s just my childhood memories of listening to Mozart. It s like I was always slightly worried about this idea that as a German, you re sort of pillaging the culture of Africa. So one of the things I did on the first one, and I ve before with Lebo M., it s like I kept saying, I m a German, so I m going to write with a German accent, just the way we re speaking now. And let me go and take this into Africa and give it to Africa, and let them just respond with their culture, and see what happens where the two cultures collide, if another new thing can come out of it. So I think that s really part of the strength of the score.(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)Rotten Tomatoes: What was it like to work with Lebo M. again on the score? Had you worked together much in the intervening years?Zimmer: Yes. We had worked on a couple of movies nobody went to see (, and we did touring together. Africa s always been important to this world, and at the same time, it s like it needs more respect. It needs more love. And Lebo s been touring with me, so we have been doing Lion King, bits and pieces of it live. Yes, we ve been comrades in arms for a long time, you know? And he s been sort of the guardian of the musical. Because he s really great at casting this thing. That sort of stuff. He s been looking after our legacy in a much more profound way than I have.So, your daughter: Has she seen the film? Did she say whether you screwed it up?Zimmer: No, but there is something which has puzzled everybody at Disney. They let me have a lot of tickets for the London premiere, and I sent them all back, and I said, I only want two tickets, because I want it to be a father-daughter date. I hope she s still going to be speaking to me afterwards. Simple as that. But it s just going to be the two of us.Like this?
