mg游戏网址采用百度引擎3（Baidu 8）om the H in the Hollywood sign in the early 1930s.The limited series, co-created by Ian Brennan, plays out like a dream – what would happen if profit-driven studios had taken the brave step of giving minorities major lead roles during Hollywood s Golden Age? – and comes loaded with many of über-producer Murphy s TV signatures. There s a cast of attractive young newcomers (Broadway star Jeremy Pope, Ready or Not’s Samara Weaving, Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Harrier, and more); a handful of Murphy veterans (The Assassination of Gianni Versace’s Darren Criss, The Politician’s David Corenswet); plenty of visual panache, this time with a 1940s Hollywood flair; and lots to put a smile on any LGBTQ viewer s face — a fictionalized Rock Hudson is among the lead characters, for starters.And as with American Horror Story, Feud, and other Murphy-produced series, Hollywood is marked by a number of veteran actresses in the kind of complex, flashy roles you don t see a lot of outside of Murphyland. Holland Taylor is a wise studio executive; Mira Sorvino plays an aging actress struggling to land a role; and Broadway legend Patti LuPone stars as Avis Amberg, the studio head s wife who has to take over when he suffers a heart attack. It s Avis who makes the call to cast Washington, and who deals with the fallout, and it s LuPone who runs away with the series: Whether she s dressing down a group of bean counters trying to shutter her studio, getting plastered backstage at the Oscars, or getting freaky with 26-year-old Corenswet s Jack – expect memes of the staircase moment to do the rounds – she s a joy to watch.Rotten Tomatoes recently called LuPone at the Connecticut home that s enjoyed some fame during quarantine; the actress has been offering virtual tours of her eclectically decorated basement on Twitter ever since fans began obsessing over it when she appeared on a Rosie O Donnell live stream. It was the day after her birthday when we called, and she was hungover from a night with people on Zoom getting trashed on martinis — not something she usually drinks. Her mouth may have been dry, but LuPone had plenty to say about working with Murphy, what she d change about the entertainment industry today, her Tiger King–themed birthday present, and why those in the arts deserve more respect.Joel Meares for Rotten Tomatoes: Hollywood is just the latest Ryan Murphy production you ve been a part of – fans will remember you from AHS and Pose. What is it about what Ryan’s doing in the television landscape that’s drawing you to his projects?Patti LuPone: He offers me jobs. It s simple is that. And he offers me really great parts. I did a little thing on Glee, that was the first time I worked for him. I got a call from my agent, and they were very excited about it, they said, Ryan Murphy wants to do a whole episode about you, Patti. And I m like, No, I m still a working actor. I cannot be Patti LuPone d out of the business. And they were shocked I said no. Because they didn t know how Ryan would react. I said, Tell them, I would be happy to do one scene, but I can t have an entire episode. And I did this one scene with Lea Michele and Cory Monteith. But then I was offered American Horror Story then Pose and now this.You know what Ryan’s doing? He s forming a repertory company on film. And that s an extraordinary thing — that Ryan will offer you a great part in a great television show, you know what I mean? It s just really wonderful that somebody trusts you enough to go, “Here, play this. Here, play that.” It s always different.(Photo by Saeed Adyana/Netflix)This particular role in Hollywood, Avis, is so meaty. Part of it is just the clothes — which I m still getting over because you get to wear some amazing stuff — but then you also get to have this boy toy and some pretty wild sex scenes with David [Corenswet]. And then she becomes this boss business woman. What was it like to play all these aspects of Avis?LuPone: Well, I had an indication [of the arc] when Ryan talked to me about the part; he told me what would happen, that she would end up running a studio and making movies just for gays, minorities, and women. So I knew that that was going to be the arc of the character. And he did preface it by saying, “…and she has sex scenes.” And I said: Finally. We only got a script at a time, so I didn t really know how exactly it was going to unfold. I was thrilled that he trusted me, and I was thrilled that he gave me meat to act.Ryan has spoken about Hollywood as a sort of rewriting of movie history that gives people a happy ending who didn t necessarily get a happy ending in many ways. It’s a corrective fantasy. Is there something about the entertainment industry or Hollywood today that you would rewrite, as Ryan does in the series? What would you change about the industry if you could?LuPone: First of all, there are no showmen left. Do you know what I mean? There s no Louis B. Mayers, Jack Warners left; there are no Irving Thalbergs left. These people had theater in their blood. And I mean theater encompassing everything, do you know what I mean? They would have theatrical blood where they could choose writers and they could choose materials; materials to give to an audience. What are we doing as far as filmmaking is concerned today? We re regenerating cartoons.So I would hope that artists would lead. And I don t just mean actors, I mean anybody with an artistic bent would lead. My problem is that — and this is on Broadway as well, any entertainment aspect — we are second-guessing the audience. We are underestimating the audience. They can take a whole lot more and they need it. We need to educate, [and] they need to educate us. So, we should put everything out, much broader ideas, and let the audience decide. They are smarter than we think they are, or that we give them credit for. (Not me, because I m on that side of the stage where I deal with them.) But we need to empower the people that green-light films so they aren t underestimating them.Is the problem that those particular decision-makers lack an artistic bent?LuPone: I think that s part of it. The other is financial. I saw it changing when I was doing [ABC drama] Life Goes On years ago. I saw it changing when the Harvard bean counters, the Yale bean counters came out and took over Hollywood and the music industry. I d heard about it and I sort of felt it when I was in California, that was 1989 to 1993. You could feel it changing.Also, there should be more women in every position of power, not just in the entertainment industry, but in our politics. There s just something that the men lack right now and that s empathy.Ryan seems to have that quality.LuPone: Oh, Ryan is a champion.OK, I have to ask you about your time social distancing in Connecticut. Your home, and particularly your basement, has taken the Internet by storm ever since you appeared on Rosie O’Donnell’s live stream, and you’ve showed us your cassettes and jukebox and all sorts of things on Twitter. Are you surprised that people are so fascinated by your home and your basement and your life right now?LuPone: Yes. Yes. Yes. But you know what, if it s bringing anybody joy, I m very happy to do it. It has to be when the inspiration strikes, so that there is a mood to [the Twitter videos]. And today the mood struck because we were planning this one and I had to wait until I was sort of in the right frame of mind. What happened was I got really trashed last night because it s my birthday. I got trashed on martinis, which I don t drink. So I m hungover today and I said to my kid, Let s do it. I m not bathing, I m not combing my hair. I m not brushing my teeth. Let s do it right now. And we did it. People wanted to know what was in the locker, so I showed him things that were in the locker.I heard somebody wanted to see more of my basement. 😘 pic.twitter.com/fBea7emR6h Patti LuPone (@PattiLuPone) March 23, 2020You now know you what I m doing straight after this! What is a Patti LuPone hangover cure, by the way?LuPone: Oh my God, I don t know. I m still hungover. I woke up so sick. Apparently, I was crazy last night. I don t remember anything, but my husband told me. Because it was Bingo, it was Zoom Bingo. And I started yelling at the computer — well not the computer — and then I won and then I peed my pants and then I came upstairs. What the hell was happening? Maybe there s too much information for you, but it was one of those sort of I just passed out. Then I woke up this morning, my throat was so dry, my head was pounding. Who the hell knows?These days it s just kind of like every night could turn into that if you let it. I haven t seen a movie collection necessarily or DVDs or VHSes in your basement. Do you have one and what might we find in it?LuPone: Yes. And you know it s in the corner? It was by Nipper [her statue of the RCA dog]. But we ve just gotten rid of a lot of VHSes as well — actually we haven t gotten rid of the VHSes yet, because we re going to transfer them to digital — but [we have gotten rid of] a lot of the DVDs because they re basically on the computer. We’re leaving our home to our kids, right? That s what parents do. So my husband and I, in this time, are trying to lessen our imprint — not that we re going to die anytime soon, but you know how you collect stuff? We’re in the process of purging a lot of stuff that is not necessary anymore. So a lot of the DVDs went south. I m not going to watch the movies again, or if I want to, they re on Netflix or YouTube. So the physical movies are gone. I mean, I just got rid of a bookcase: 12 boxes of books that I got rid of!Oh no! But that s good. You re doing your part. Is there a film that you ve returned to or a TV show that you ve returned to during this time? Or something new you’ve discovered?LuPone: I m watching Babylon Berlin and My Brilliant Friend and Grace and Frankie, and now I want to watch Unorthodox; oh, somebody told me about Sex Education. But what I m doing is reading, I m reading a lot. I m reading the latest translation of Madame Bovary, which I d never read. Then starting on Hilary Mantel s The Light and the Mirror.I’m reading that at the moment, actually. Did you see the Wolf Hall miniseries?LuPone: I did. And at first, I didn t understand what Mark Rylance was doing [in the role of Thomas Cromwell]. But I think Mark Rylance is one of the great actors. I didn t understand what he was doing, and then Oh, Oh. It deeply revealed itself. I mean, he s extraordinary. (Photo by Saeed Adyana/Netflix)And I know you’ve watched Tiger King…LuPone: Yes, I did. You know what I got for my birthday from my kid? I got an authentic bumper sticker that says “Joe Exotic for President.” But it s one of those authentic ones from 2016.That s amazing. Ryan is reportedly working on series about Joe Exotic with Rob Lowe. Is there a role that you would covet to play?LuPone: Maybe Saff. Saff Saffery. [Laughs] I should play Saff; I m too old to play Saff. Um Yeah. We ll have to find a role for me. I don t know. I can t be Carole Baskin… No, it d be a challenge. On a more serious note, there’s been a lot of talk these last few weeks about how important the arts are — we’ve all turned to TV and film and music and reading to keep ourselves sane. Do you think there might be some sort of landscape change in terms of how government and people just view writers and musicians and filmmakers when this is all over? More respect? More funding?LuPone: Not as long as we have the present government. Not at all I do not think so if the Republicans hold power; I think we will sink further, further into obscurity if they hold on to power in 2020. And I think we are taken for granted, and we are also treated as third-class citizens in this country. That s been my experience my entire career, in various ways. So I don t think so. But other countries? Probably so, because they re just smarter than we are. And more cultured than we are.(Photo by Saeed Adyana/Netflix)I’m wondering if you can expand a little for someone who s reading this and doesn t understand perhaps what you mean by “third-class citizens.” The perception might be, Patti LuPone or Ryan Murphy, et cetera, all live wonderful lives. Can you unpack that a bit?LuPone: Theatricals have always been treated with phenomenal distrust. The actress on stage, she was considered a prostitute; they were the first people that wore makeup and she was they were sub-society. I remember when I was performing, The Acting Company was performing at the Ford Theater, the reopening of the Ford Theater during Jimmy Carter s administration. And the Carters were coming to the performance that night, and we were invited to the White House to meet the President. Basically, it was the clearing out of the social calendar and there were some celebrities there: Alexis Smith, Henry Fonda, John Houseman. And just as they got to Henry Fonda and John Houseman, the military guards stopped the receiving line. I actually said, No, no, you can t do that. They re coming to see us tonight. And we were escorted off the property, basically. We ve always been considered do I want to say “non-essential”? Even though it is.I have said forever, it s an inherent right: The arts are an inherent right in human nature. And they keep de-funding the National Endowment for the Arts. I mean people were bitching that they gave the Kennedy Center million in the first stimulus package. The arts are crucial for mental and spiritual health. Yet we are, like I said, taken for granted. Or put in situations where we are totally dismissed. I have felt it my entire career. And, yes, I make a living. [But] I don t always make a living. There s that expression, You re only as good as your last shift, and I m going to be in financial peril if this goes on too much longer. I m no different than anybody else.Finally, we know that one of your theatrical pet peeves is when people put their phones on in the theater — you famously grabbed a phone from an audience member during a performance of Gypsy on Broadway. Do you have any pet peeves when you re going to the cinema? Things that really bother you?LuPone: The same thing. People talking during the movie or people texting during the movie. It s the exact same thing, you are together in a proscenium environment. And it s public manners. We, in this country, have forgotten our public manners — that other people exist besides ourselves. So, it s how we conduct ourselves in theaters, all kinds of theaters. Movie theaters, legitimate theaters. It s the same piece.Hollywood is available to stream on Netflix from Friday, May 1, 2020.

The beloved comedy sequel, which came out just a year and a half after the super-successful original, was largely dismissed as a retread not just of that first film, but of the inspirational teacher inspires inner-city kids genre more generally. It has a current Tomatometer score of just 17%, and it s been much lower than that in the past.That score has not gone unnoticed. Not by Buzzfeed Australia, not by the latest guest on our new podcast, and not by a slew of 90s kids, who have told us in no uncertain terms in comments, Audience reviews, and at bars when we tell them where we work, that when it comes to Sister Act 2, Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong.

Pictures new trailer for their upcoming Shazam! doubles down on the lighter tone of the first trailer, released back during Comic-Con in July, and continues to offer potential audiences a look at one of the more whimsical superheroes in his seemingly natural habitat – a coming-of-age story set in the DC Comics world of powers, magic and the Batman. But the trailer also offers a few clues into some interesting ideas layered into the story. So let’s take a look at five things we learned from the Shazam! trailer.The Speed of Mercury(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)In both trailers, Billy (Asher Angel as a boy and Zachary Levi as the hero) reaches out to his friend Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) to help him with all this superhero stuff. In the earlier trailer, we learned Freddy is all about the heroes. He even tries to get Billy to admit to the superpower he wants most. And now that Billy has powers – thanks to the Wizard Shazam (Djimon Honsou) – the two explore the limits of his abilities.In the comic books, the Shazam powers include the Wisdom of Solomon, the Strength of Hercules, the Stamina of Atlas, the Power of Zeus, the Courage of Achilles, and the Speed of Mercury. The Power of Zeus (as electricity manipulation), the Courage of Achilles (as “bullet immunity”), and the Strength of Hercules (conventional super-strength) were highlighted in the earlier trailer and a few television ads, but the new trailer finally showcases the Speed of Mercury in its purest form – Flash-like superspeed, which he uses to save Mary (Grace Fulton) about halfway through the trailer. As it happens, the Speed of Mercury is also the source of his ability to fly, although, as we see late in the trailer, it is first the means to leap great distances – just like Superman in his early days – and requires Billy’s concentration to master. We also expect the Wisdom of Solomon will be the last of the powers Billy will acquire, considering how often the trailers remind you he is just a boy.Philadelphia Born and Raised(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)The opening shot of the new trailer reveals Shazam! s specific geographic location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is, of course, a departure from the comics, where Billy, Freddy, and the rest of the Shazam family live in Fawcett City – itself a nod to the character’s original publisher, Fawcett Comics. But in lieu of putting another DC Superhero in another fictional city, relocating Shazam! to Detroit offers the hero a certain grounding. Which is a good thing considering just how fantastical Shazam! really is, with its mix of magic, caped superheroes, and super-genius villains. Building up a new DC city would take too much time and energy away from making Billy’s journey to a dependable hero believable and fun.That said, we’d still love to see Hub City or Opal City featured in a DC film or television series some day.Commercial Heroes(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)One of the most interesting and recurring details across both trailers is the commercialization of the Justice League. Entering the realm of meta-commentary, we see Freddy already owns items like a Batarang replica – but then, who doesn’t at this point? – and an Aquaman logo T-shirt which looks like it came directly from a promotional event for that film.But in the new trailer, the commercialization of the League becomes a point of comedy, as the hero uses a 1/2 scale Batman toy to hinder his opponent, Sivana (Mark Strong). The toy even says the Dark Knight’s signature line “I’m Batman!” before Billy launches it at his foe. It is doubtful a bit of plastic can stop the villain, but Billy has plenty of other products to pelt him with, including toy utility belts, plastic busts, fashion dolls, child-sized costumes, and even branded skateboards.And at this point, there is plenty to poke fun at in regards to the Justice League as a toy brand. For decades, Warner Bros. has been licensing the characters and their logos for products as expensive as a recent Batman: The Animated Series Batcave playset and as cheap as paper birthday party supplies. It s something that comics and television shows have touched upon, but it is new material for a live-action film based on the DC Comics characters.The Powers Of Sivana(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)And where would Shazam! be without a proper antagonist? With the character’s traditional archenemy, Black Adam, held in reserve for either the sequel or his own solo film starring Dwayne Johnson, the first film focuses on the hero’s oldest foe, Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. This version of the character, though, may not be the one comic book fans would naturally expect to see.For most of his existence, Sivana has been a character of science, using his intellect and inventions to battle the hero and conquer the world. His attempts always, eventually, fail. In more recent years, he was revised into a scientist desperate to quantify magic, with a raid on Black Adam’s tomb giving him the ability to “see” magic in one eye a visual cue definitely present in the trailer.But for the purposes of the film, Sivana is a former pupil of the Wizard Shazam. And as seen in the trailer, he appears to have some of Billy’s powers as well – the Powers of Zeus, Hercules, and Achilles being the most obvious. He also deduces that Billy is much younger than his hero self, though you wouldn t need the Wisdom of Solomon to guess that. Nevertheless, that knowledge will come in handy as Sivana and Billy become mortal enemies.He Doesn’t Have A Name… Yet(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)And if you’ve noticed we’ve avoided referring to Billy as “Shazam” whenever possible, that s because of the key moment in the second trailer when Freddy refers to him as “Captain Sparklefingers.” It feels important. There is also a subsequent moment, after Billy saves Mary with the Speed of Mercury, in which she awkwardly says, “you are the hero. ” It tells us that for most the film, Billy will be in search of a name. It is a thematically interesting idea that corresponds to Shazam’s publishing history in a very unique way.The character debuted in 1940 as Captain Marvel. His comics – published by Fawcett – soon began to outsell Superman and Action Comics. As impossible as it seems now, he was the most popular superhero of the decade. Noting the similarities to their character, DC tried to sue Captain Marvel out of existence, and after 8 years of litigation, Fawcett settled and ceased publishing Captain Marvel comics in 1953. This would lead to the creation of Marvelman in the UK comics scene – a story for another time – and eventually, Marvel Comics debuted their own Captain Marvel, making sure to file a trademark on the name in 1967. When DC finally bought Captain Marvel and the associated characters, they were forced to refer to him as “Shazam” on comic book covers while still calling him Captain Marvel in the interior pages. This practice finally ceased in 2011, when the company declared he only had one name: Shazam.Nonetheless, people still enjoy pointing out this curious bit of comic book history, made all the more curious by the fact that Marvel s Captain Marvel feature film and DC s Shazam! open in theaters a month apart. It seems the destinies of all Captain Marvel characters are inexorably linked.Either way, all signs point to Billy embracing the Shazam name by the end of the film. If that turns out to be the case, the issue of Billy’s superhero name will parallel his journey to control his powers and save the day. It s suitably whimsical, even if the film downplays some of the character’s more whimsical elements (like a verbal tiger man called Tawky Tawny). But it leaves us wondering if Freddy and Mary – who became the heroes Captain Marvel Jr. and Mary Marvel in the comics – will go on similar journeys, should they receive powers in a sequel.Shazam! opens everywhere on April 5.Like this?

Curses and miracles aligned over this Easter weekend as Hollywood awaits the flood of moviegoers headed to theaters next week for the conclusion of the Avengers saga. First things first, though, as one superhero is not done yet — even if he would be wise to fly away from the screeching phantom that challenged him this weekend.King of the Crop: Curse Opens on Top, But May Come In for a Soft Landing(Photo by New Line Cinema)Warner Bros.’ Conjuring Universe film, The Curse of La Llorona, opened to a very respectable .5 million. Not terribly well received after its screening at the SXSW film festival this March, the studio then decided to forego press screenings altogether, and it is sitting on a 32% Tomatometer score. That’s the weakest rating for a wide release horror film since last November’s The Possession of Hannah Grace (20%). Even The Prodigy got a 45%. La Llorona’s opening is well ahead other April horror entries like 2008’s Prom Night (.8 million), Scream 4 (.69), and last year’s Truth or Dare (.66). Those three films finished between million–44 million. It is also ahead of this month’s Pet Sematary, which began with .5 million and currently sits at .5 million, just ahead of the pace of White Noise, which finished with .38 million; less than Mary Lambert’s 1989 Pet Sematary (.46 million). But a potential million finish domestically for La Llorona would be solid for the million production. It is already over million worldwide.Rotten Returns: Penguins March to the Bottom of DisneyNature(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)The DisneyNature films have done fairly well as far as documentaries go. Earth and Chimpanzee are the 6th and 7th highest-grossing docs of all-time, and Oceans, Bears, Monkey Kingdom, and African Cats are still all in the top 20. So they had to be hoping for better with the 90%-rated Penguins, given that March of the Penguins is the second-highest grossing documentary ever with .4 million. Disney’s film has managed just .2 million since opening on Wednesday. Even the weakest entry in the series, Born in China, made .6 million in its first five days.The Top 10 and Beyond: Captain Marvel Hits Milestone Just Before the Endgame(Photo by Marvel Studios)Shazam! dropped to second this weekend, but only with a 29% fall as it joins 15 films to make between 0 million–122 million in 17 days, seven of which are animated. Its .3 million third weekend is the fifth-best amongst them behind just Hitch, Wreck-It Ralph, Coco, and Happy Feet. Those four films grossed between 9 million–210 million, while the 11 films Shazam! beat grossed between 9 million–192 million. DC’s latest could be headed for somewhere in the 0 million range, That is clearly nothing compared to Captain Marvel, which appears to be getting the Black Panther treatment now, as fans want to make sure they are completely caught up for Endgame. It has reached the 0 million domestic mark, and at .098 million, it is the 25th highest-grossing film of all-time. Its 5.7% increase from last week to .1 million this weekend is the eighth-best seventh weekend ever.Another version of a superhero is on display in Breakthrough. Namely, The Almighty, as the power of prayer beats doctors in reviving a drowned boy. Over the weekend the 64%-rated film grossed .1 million, ranking it ahead of Soul Surfer and God’s Not Dead on the faith chart. That’s less than other pre-Easter releases like Heaven Is For Real (.5 million) and Miracles From Heaven (.8 million), each involving children, illness, and revival. Breakthrough has made .6 million since opening Wednesday.Dumbo finally hit 0 million on its 24th day and likely finishes somewhere between 0 million–120 million. That means a worldwide total somewhere in the 0 million range, which may be just enough to be the second-biggest bomb of 2019, leaving the top title to Paramount’s Wonder Park. Annapurna’s United Artists Releasing did no favors for Missing Link, which crash-landed on opening (despite a 90% critical rating). Audiences may have caught on to the critics singing its praises because the film dropped just 26% this weekend — the second smallest drop of the year after The Upside — but it has still only grossed .9 million.(Photo by @ Universal )Last week’s releases fell further down the chart. Little dropped 45 percent from second to fifth and has made million to date. Lionsgate’s Hellboy, though, is a domestic failure. It’s 67.8-percent drop is the third worst of 2019 for a wide release behind Replicas and The Beach Bum. Neil Marshall’s film has made less than Elektra did in its first 10 days; the 2005 film lost more than half its theaters in its third week. If that happens to Hellboy next week, then it may not even reach million. Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy made .1 million in its opening weekend. Finally, Jordan Peele’s Us looks to be preparing for one more Top 10 stay next weekend. Currently on par in weekend five with X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Thor, it may settle in with a final gross between 9 million–181 million; ahead of Get Out’s 6 million.This Time Last Year: Audiences Chose Quiet Over Rampage(Photo by @ Paramount Pictures)A Quiet Place reclaimed the top spot at the box office, edging out Rampage in its second weekend by less than 0,000. I Feel Pretty ( millon) also took third place by less than 0,000 over challenger Super Troopers 2, which made nearly half of its total money this weekend. The Paula Patton thriller, Traffik, opened all the way back in ninth with just .94 million. The top 10 films grossed 6.60 million and averaged 60% on the Tomatometer. This week’s top 10 grossed an estimated .65 million and averaged 61% with critics.On the Vine: Avengers: Endgame Looking to Bust Some Records(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel)The summer movie season once again begins in April and no one wants to get in the way of Avengers: Endgame. Eleven years in the making. Who lives? Who dies? All questions the fans want answered, but Disney is looking at others. Will Endgame best Infinity War’s all-time opening weekend of 7.6 million? (Likely.) Could it actually climb to 0 million by the end of Sunday? (Quite possibly.) Does it best Black Panther’s 0 million to become the highest-grossing Marvel film ever? (Could be.)

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is still four months away, but with a trailer, Vanity Fair magazine spreads, and a big showing at the D23 expo in August, the film is feeling much closer to release. And the story and characters are starting to come into focus. From early publicity for the film and the new revelations at D23 – WHAT is Rey doing with that red double-bladed lightsaber!? – we already know a decent amount about The Rise of Skywalker, which will conclude the trilogy that began with J.J. Abrams The Force Awakens in 2015. So let’s take a look at what we know and what it could potentially mean for the finished film. After all, the title itself offers a strange mystery: which Skywalker will rise after all this time?What A Difference A Year Makes(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)Up until Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Star Wars sequels traditionally took place 2-3 years after the preceding film (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones took place 10 years after Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace). TLJ eschewed the tradition by setting itself shortly after Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As a result, the usual off-screen character building did not occur. This time around, Lucasfilm is making it clear TLJ and The Rise of Skywalker take place further apart from each other; about a year or so. In that time, the Resistance has regrouped with Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) getting accustomed to a leadership role, Finn (John Boyega) dedicating himself to the cause, and Rey (Daisy Ridley) continuing her training in the Jedi arts.And yeah, that last one certainly sounds surprising, doesn’t it?To an extent, all three characters will have a newfound confidence as they’ve come to understand their place in the universe and what it means to fight the First Order. Since this is the final episode of not only the third Star Wars trilogy, but of the nine-film cycle first teased by creator George Lucas in the early 1980s, we’re going to presume they succeed in crushing the First Order and whatever Imperial remnant keeping it reinforced. At the same time, the characters face a greater challenge in helping to found some sort of galactic government which will last more than 20 years before a group aligned with the Dark Side can topple it. How director J.J. Abrams could make that element interesting is anyone’s guess.J.J. Abrams Is Back(Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)Although the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy was meant to showcase three different directors as they resolved the Skywalker Saga, The Rise of Skywalker went through a troubled pre-production phase. Jurassic World’s Colin Trevorrow was originally signed to pick up the story after Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, but shortly before he was set to begin fully developing the film, Lucasfilm fired him. As always, “creative differences” were to blame. The search began anew for someone who could wrap the series up and do it to Lucasfilm’s specifications. And once again, they turned to Abrams, who infamously turned down the opportunity to direct The Force Awakens when it was first given to him.This time around, though, Abrams said he felt a certain freedom to expand beyond Star Wars storytelling grammar into something new. His comments suggest he listened to critics who mentioned The Force Awakens felt a little too much like the original Star Wars. Presumably, this means the series will not end with a rag-tag group of fighter aces launching an attack against a Death Star the size of a solar system. Which isn’t to say the Death Star will be absent from the film. The trailer offered fans a glimpse of wreckage from one of the destroyed Original Trilogy battle stations peacefully resting on an unknown planet.That shot, and Abrams comments, suggests he picked up some of TLJ’s “let’s blow up Star Wars!” attitude, even if the film includes the series third desert planet.New Planets, New Characters(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)Instead of Tatooine or Jakku, the desert world seen in the first trailer is called Pasanna, which now suggests desert planets are fairly common in the Star Wars galaxy. Another environment to be featured is a planet of ice and snow called Kijimi, where viewers will meet Keri Russel’s scoundrel character Zorri Bliss. At the D23 Walt Disney Studio presentation in August, Russell teased Zorri as “cool and shady,” before adding she is “an old friend of Poe’s.” Make your own guesses about what that means.Other new characters include a new droid called D-0, Richard E. Grant as First Order Allegiant General Pryde, Namoi Ackie as Jannah a character still shrouded in secrecy despite Ackie’s appearance at Star Wars Celebration and the Aki-Aki, inhabitants of Pasanna.The film will also feature the long-delayed debut of the Knights of Ren. Despite getting a big tease in The Force Awakens, the group did very little besides stand in the rain during Rey’s lightsaber flashback. Or was it a flash-forward? Either way, they will be part of her present situation in The Rise of Skywalker. Curiously, though, it is unclear if they will be taking orders from Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) or working to dethrone him as Supreme Leader of the First Order. And considering their absence from the story so far, were they ever really his disciples – as suggested in The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi – or do they serve a older, darker evil. The trailer released during Star Wars Celebration featured the distinctive laugh of Sheev Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), which leaves us wondering if they are part of his latest phantom menace?(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, © Lucasfilm)Taking another look at the environments revealed so far – a desert world and a winter world – you might make the fair assumption The Rise of Skywalker might go to a forest world and complete a tour of classic Star Wars environments. One shot in the trailer even sees Kylo facing off against foes in a patch of dead trees. Some believe the story will take the characters back to the forest moon of Endor, where Palaptine’s first master plan was undone by a Jedi with incomplete training. Considering the film’s position as the grand finale, it seems reasonable to take things back to that first ending. But we’d also like the spirit of new ideas to prevail and see the final conflict take place in a new, as-yet-unrevealed setting.There Will Be Revelations(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)And while the film has to create new locales and characters, it also has to wrap up some longstanding plot threads. Reportedly, the origin of the First Order will be revealed. For those who remember the Thrawn Trilogy of novels or the 1990s Dark Empire comic book series, Palpatine’s involvement in those events seems almost assured. And in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, he told Anakin (Hayden Christensen) he was looking for a way to cheat death. Maybe he found it.Meanwhile, the connection Rey seemingly severed with Kylo at the end of The Last Jedi will reportedly turn out to be deeper than that film suggested. Fans of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic games already noted the similarity between the characters’ connection and the idea of Force Bonds introduced in those games. Is it possible their bond will yet redeem Kylo and end the misery Palpatine inflicted on the galaxy? Considering the film promises to be the end of the conflict between the Jedi and the Sith going back millennia, we’re willing to bet on it.(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, © Lucasfilm)Then again, new material shown at D23 suggests something else. Quick cuts teased a resupplied and reinforced Resistance, a red-eyed C-3PO and, perhaps most disturbingly, Rey brandishing a double-sided red lightsaber. Considering she trained with a staff back on Jakku, the lightsaber variation makes sense. But the red blades suggests the Sith may finally win. Or, perhaps, she will have to fall in order for the Skywalker to rise.Or, it was just an excellent fake-out for the D23 audience. Either way, the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga will not be a simple retelling of Return of the Jedi.Old Friends Return(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)The film will see the return of Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Billy Dee Williams in their roles as General Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Lando Calrissian. Despite Fisher’s tragic death on December 27, 2016, Lucasfilm resolved to maintain Leia’s existence in the ninth film even before Abrams signed on to direct. Once he did, he recalled scenes cut from The Force Awakens he could use to feature the character in The Rise of Skywalker. At Star Wars Celebration, he said editing her material into a new context felt like working with her again. And at D23, Abrams called Leia “the heart of the story.”Lando, meanwhile, returns to pilot the Millennium Falcon once again after he flew the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy to defeat the Empire in Return of the Jedi. It is unclear why he’s back, but we’re happy to see him no matter the reason.And then there’s Luke. Though the character was seen dying in The Last Jedi, it is important to note the special Force ability allowing certain Jedi to remain conscious entities after the termination of the body. As Yoda put it in The Empire Strikes Back, Force-sensitives are “luminous beings” and not the “crude matter” of a physical form. And as revealed in Revenge of the Sith, Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) was the first Jedi to return using this technique. That Luke would return in this manner to train Rey or advise Leia is hardly a surprise. What may be more surprising is the single photo of him released so far: seemingly corporeal, he stands next to R2-D2 amid a field in flames.The notion of a Jedi returning bodily to face the ultimate evil is not the craziest idea ever suggested in a Star Wars story. Early drafts of Return of the Jedi featured Anakin Skywalker returning to his human form to face Darth Vader and the Emperor. This, of course, predates the decision to make Anakin and Vader the same person, but the idea persisted for some time. It never came to pass for Jedi, but perhaps Abrams finally employed the idea for this final Skywalker Saga film.It Will Likely Feature John Williams’ Final Star Wars Film ScoreOffering the film one more sense of finality, composer John Williams stated in 2018 that it would feature his last Star Wars film score. If he truly decides to step down – Williams subsequently agreed to compose a music loop for the Disney Parks’ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge environments – it will mark the end of an incredible era. Williams’ themes are as indelible as classic lines like “I have a bad feeling about this,” lightsabers, and the jump to hyperspace. Though composers like Kevin Kiner (of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels) and Michael Giacchino (of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) maintained the musical grammar developed by Williams, every subsequent film from 2019 onward will be different. And should the film truly bring the Skywalker saga to a close, it is all the more fitting that Episode IX be the composer’s final bow.Unless, of course, he’s still with us when Disney breaks down and begins developing of Episode X.Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens everywhere on December 20, 2019.Like this?

Daniel Radcliffe may never in his lifetime escape questions about his most-famous role: Harry Potter. Fortunately, the star doesn t mind fielding fan queries, including those from Potterhead colleagues and the occasional journalist.Radcliffe s Miracle Workers costar Karan Soni, who plays Sanjay, was the biggest Potterhead on the cast, Radcliffe revealed, and he was happy to indulge Soni.“I think there’s like an expectation that I will hate talking about it, which I really don’t particularly,” Radcliffe told Rotten Tomatoes.Radcliffe now stars in surreal TBS comedy Miracle Workers, which presents Heaven, Inc. as a regular office grind where employees try to answer prayers every day. God (Steve Buscemi) is over it and decides one day that he’s going to blow up the Earth.(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Angels Craig (Radcliffe) and Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) convince God to give them a chance to prove humans are worth preserving. If they can perform one miracle in two weeks, God will let the Earth live. The prayer they’ve chosen to answer: Help Sam (Jon Bass) and Laura (Sasha Compere) fall in love.The angels can’t directly interfere with Sam and Laura. They can just set things up and hope they work. It’s like a game of Sims with real people.“They’re a lot more caring with them than I was with my Sims,” Radcliffe said. “I killed my Sims accidentally. I put the fridge the wrong way around and didn’t realize.”Viswanathan confessed to even more sadistic Sim abuse.“I used to take the ladder out of the pool and just watch them suffer,” she said of her Sims abuse, which shocked her costar.“That’s you killing them!” Radcliffe objected. “I accidentally made my guy die. That’s a murder.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Heaven, Inc.’s interference on the show also has collateral damage. Obstacles they throw in Sam and Laura’s path may have deadlier impacts on completely innocent bystanders.“It does, but it is all for the goal of saving the entire world,” Radcliffe said in defense of the angels. “We’re in a world where virtually anything can be justified in order to save the existence of the species as a whole.”Miracle Workers is a dark comedy that way, but it’s ultimately optimistic.“There’s a through-line of hope even when it’s really messed up and extremely dark,” Viswanathan said. “They’re just sticking together and believing in something and going for it. That’s very much the ethos of the show.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Miracle Workers showcases Radcliffe’s comedic side. He has had funny cameos in films like Trainwreck and shows like Bojack Horseman, and he even played a farting corpse in 2016 film Swiss Army Man opposite Paul Dano.“I’ve always loved doing comedy,” Radcliffe said. “I think I’ve done a fair amount that certain people have seen. Swiss Army Man is a fairly niche film. The stage shows I’ve done have actually mostly been comedy in some way. I love it. It’s a very lovely thing, particularly on a set like this where you just have to go to set and try and be stupid every day and make people laugh.”And Miracle Workers can be gloriously stupid. One joke is just about how to pronounce “gyro.” Most foodies know it sounds like “yee-ro,” not like a gyroscope.“I thought it was ‘gyro’ as well, but my girlfriend — near where Erin grew up is a huge Middle Eastern community — and she was like, ‘No, it’s yee-ro,” Radcliffe said.(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)If Miracle Workers is a hit, there will be a second season, but it won’t be about the same angels. Creator Simon Rich’s plan is to make Miracle Workers an anthology series.“The idea would be to reset it in a different time, place, characters — sort of to do for comedy what American Horror Story is for horror,” Radcliffe said. “Once you’ve saved the world, it’s hard to find where to go from there for the second series, I think.”Whether or not that means season 1 ends with a miracle or we all die, it will be a definitive ending.“The opportunity TBS gave him to do was to do a totally self-contained season so you didn’t have to, as a writer, write an open-ended ending which may or may not go onto something in season 2,” Radcliffe said of Rich s deal. “Essentially they let us make a three-hour film with commercials.”(Photo by Curtis Baker/TBS)Returning to our Potter obsession (and Radcliffe s patient accommodation), we related that when his Potter costar Rupert Grint spoke to us for Snatch season 2, he said it was weird for him to watch another actor play Ron Weasley in the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Radcliffe hasn’t seen the play yet, but not because of another actor playing Harry.“I think I would find it weirder just sitting in the audience and know that people were probably looking at what my reaction to the thing was,” Radcliffe said. “That’s kind of the reason I haven’t gone.”It’s hard to believe that it has been eight years since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Radcliffe has had a whole career since then, but he’ll always be Harry Potter.“It’s still a big part of my life, but I’ve gotten to go on and do loads of other things,” Radcliffe said. “I’m very happy with how it’s all gone. If you told me at the time that I was going to be sitting here eight years later talking about this amazing, weird series that I love, I’d be very, very happy with that sort of thing.”Most actors don’t get one or the other. Radcliffe considers himself blessed to have both.“I don’t think the idea of me always being known as Harry Potter and the idea of me just being an actor who does lots of stuff are mutually exclusive,” Radcliffe said. “I think they can both be true. So far they have been so fingers crossed.”Miracle Workers premieres Tuesday, February 12 at 10:30 p.m. on TBS. The premiere is available for viewing now at TBS.com.
To mark its 10-year anniversary, cult classic Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is getting a special theatrical re-release on April 30. And it returns to theaters looking – and sounding – better than ever: The film has been re-imagined in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, and will play in select locations for a single week. (And yes, we know it s been 11 years, technically, since it hit theaters – but the pandemic scuttled plans for an anniversary re-release last year.)To celebrate the return of Scott, Ramona, the Evil Exes, Knives, and Sex Bob-omb, director Edgar Wright sat down with Rotten Tomatoes for an exclusive and extended deep dive on how he and his creative team brought Bryan Lee O Malley s beloved comic strip to life. Why was Cera the perfect Scott ? How did he convince Beck to help out with the music? And whose teeth were they on the floor, lost in all those coins?Wright reveals all in the extended interview above – and check out highlights from the oral history below.(Photo by Kerry Hayes/©Universal/courtesy Everett Collection)“They cornered me and they said, ‘It s like John Hughes meets Kill Bill.’ I said, Well, I like that idea.’” Scott Pilgrim came into my life after a screening of Shaun of the Dead. It must ve been, I guess, in the summer of 2004, and the producers Adam Siegel and Jared LeBoff, who were producers on Scott Pilgrim, cornered me, and they had a copy of the first book, which was the only one out at the time, Scott Pilgrim s Precious Little Life: Volume 1, and they cornered me and they said, ‘This is your next movie.’ I was like, ‘Okay!’ They said, ‘It s like John Hughes meets Kill Bill.’ I said, Well, I like that idea.’ So they gave me the comic, and, they were half right, because I did make it into a movie, but it wasn t my next movie – I made Hot Fuzz next – but I really responded to the material.I loved the metaphor of the book. Bryan Lee O’Malley had written this book about how dating life and relationships and having to be mature in relationships was like a battleground; charting this journey to being with the woman who you think you re in love with is like a tournament in a martial arts film. I thought that was really interesting, the idea of fighting for a relationship, dealing with the baggage of a new partner, all of those things that you deal with in real life, but to do it in a really fantastical way. (Photo by Double Negative/©Universal/courtesy Everett Collection)“If we’d have cast super-fit Zac Efron, it s not quite the same movie.” Michael was the only person that I thought of for Scott Pilgrim. Anybody that was more – and this sounds like a sort of criticism of Michael, but it s not – but anybody who was more obviously studly and macho, didn t seem to me like the right thing for Scott Pilgrim. If we’d have cast super-fit Zac Efron, it s not quite the same movie, because it would seem like Zac Efron could handle himself in a fight, because he s like ridiculously ripped, whereas it was more funny and more relatable watching somebody like Michael A) be like a Romeo, and B) be like this amazing fighter. That to me was inherently funny. “She came in and auditioned against some more established people and just wiped the floor with them.” Brie Larson had been like a sort of child actor and even a teen pop star, but I remember she came in and auditioned against some more established people than her, and just like wiped the floor with them. Her audition, if you ve ever seen it on the Blu-ray, was just like extraordinary – and she was like 19. I remember I was in the room when she auditioned, and I was with Jared LeBoff, and we looked at each other and it was like, ‘We gotta cast her. Like, she was just amazing. (Photo by Double Negative/©Universal/courtesy Everett Collection)“They used to call me ‘the blink Nazi’ on set.” I wanted it to feel surreal, a bit like anime, and in animation, people don t really blink so much. There s [also] a thing, like Michael Caine, his school of acting, page one is, ‘Don t blink on a close-up,’ it s like classic Michael Caine technique: ‘Never blink on a close-up, it disempowers you, and it makes you look weak.’ And it s true, if somebody doesn t know their lines, they re blinking like crazy, so I sort of thought it was a good thing [to ask for no blinking]. If you look at Brie Larson s performance, particularly, she s so strong and so unblinking, so we got into this thing not blinking during takes, and they used to call me the blink Nazi’ on set. (Photo by Double Negative/©Universal/courtesy Everett Collection) I thought maybe Beck wouldn t wanna do it, because he s Beck and it s too small for him. Nigel [Godrich, the movie’s composer] was the one who said, ‘You should just ask Beck – Beck would love doing this; he would love reconnecting with his low-fi slacker roots.’ And so, it was Nigel who suggested Beck [write the music for Sex Bob-omb], and I thought maybe Beck wouldn t wanna do it, because maybe he s Beck and it s too small for him. But he loved it. Over one weekend, he basically did this demo of, like, 27 songs or something crazy.We d put artwork all around his studio, in his house, and he did it with like an 8-track, and it was just him and one other musician, Brian LeBarton. I remember on Sunday night Nigel texted me and said, ‘Hey, we ve got something,’ and then we went round, he had the CD, and then we drove around Los Angeles in the car listening to Sex Bob-omb, and basically that s the only real work that Beck did on the movie. Because here’s the thing: the demos that he d done were exactly the right sound, and Nigel said, ‘Why would you finish them anymore than this?’ – because this is what Sex Bob-omb could do. Sex Bob-omb wouldn t sound super polished, why don t we just use these? (Photo by Double Negative/©Universal/courtesy Everett Collection)“If you’re gonna make a musical, or a martial arts film, no two fights should be the same.” One of the things I really liked about martial art films from the 70s and 80s – the work of Jackie Chan particularly, and also early John Woo films – is that they had this kinda structure that was like an MGM musical. If you watch a Jackie Chan film from the late 70s through the 80s, you can see that there are elements where they ve got the structure of like a Gene Kelly musical. So if you’re gonna make a musical, or a martial arts film, no two fights [or musical numbers] should be the same, the number of combatants in a fight should be different every time. There should be some new novelty every time, or some new setting, or something that makes it interesting. So we sort of had to think of it in those terms: the second fight, with Lucas Lee, isn t really a fight with Lucas Lee, it s Scott Pilgrim fighting his henchman, you know, like in a video game; the third fight is a face-off; or the fourth fight is not really between Scott and the ex, it s mostly between Roxie and Ramona, and then Scott gets brought into it. Just imagine doing a gym session with Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman. There s amazing stunt work by doubles in the movie, but also everybody that s in the fight scenes – Mary, Michael, Mae, Jason, Ellen – really worked so hard on those sequences. Probably my fondest memory of the entire shoot was actually before we started filming, the stunt training we did every morning with the stunt team – just working out with the whole cast was really funny. Just imagine doing a gym session with Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman, and Chris Evans, and Brandon Routh, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. (Photo by Kerry Hayes/©Universal/courtesy Everett Collection) Then the teeth are on the floor, but also on the floor are thousands of coins. Michael Cera was incredibly safety conscious, as you should be if you re doing fight scenes, but like maybe above and beyond. If he was doing a scene with a sword, he would have a short version of the sword, and he would be swishing around with the short version, and then for the effects part we would get a stunt double and bring in the long version, and be swishing that around.Michael was doing this take where he s fighting the henchman in the club, and Michael is saying like, ‘Am I I m not too close, everybody okay?’ and they re like, ‘Yeah, you can t hurt us, go as close as you dare, it s gonna be fine, don t worry.’ So Michael s doing his thing, being very conscientious. He then goes off to get a coffee, we do the take with the long sword, and then in the first take – bam! – one of the stuntmen gets hit in the teeth with the long sword and it knocks the teeth out. Then the teeth are on the floor, but also on the floor are thousands of coins. One of my most surreal memories of the shoot, is like myself and the entire stunt team looking on this nightclub floor for two front teeth in the middle of a bunch of coins. (Photo by Universal/courtesy Everett Collection)“I don’t understand how we made that movie.” I re-watched Scott Pilgrim with my editor Paul Machliss, who was one of the two editors on the movie, and who’s done my recent film, Last Night in Soho, and I sat there afterwards and I was thinking, ‘How the f k did we make that? It’s not so much it s something that you feel new about [when you watch it again], it s more like: ‘Wait, I don t understand how we made that movie!’ Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is screening exclusively in Dolby Cinema at AMC Theatres starting Friday, April 30, 2021.

mg游戏网址 In Josephine Decker’s bitingly dark Shirley, Invisible Man star Elisabeth Moss plays novelist Shirley Jackson, most famous for The Haunting of Hill House and a notorious New Yorker story that made her, at one stage, the most reviled writer in America. Moss is earning major acclaim for her performance in the Sundance breakout – and some early awards buzz. With the movie now available to stream, Moss sat down with Rotten Tomatoes to talk about her approach to playing a version of Jackson that was true to her essence, but which allowed room for her own interpretation. And it all started with a herniated disc.
ketplace with lesser competing options for the public to experience in theaters. Raya had made .17 million in its first 12 days and has more than doubled that total since. The Marksman with Liam Neeson had only grossed .35 million in 12 days and has managed to scrounge out over million. GvK will still have another weekend at No. 1 and will fall back with Mortal Kombat the week after, at which time it should settle into second place for another three weeks until Spiral comes out, and there is no reason to believe it will not still be in the top five come Memorial Day weekend. That’s a long road ahead, but it is still very possible that 0 million could be there at the end of it.The Top 10 and Beyond: Voyagers Lands with a Thud(Photo by Lionsgate)The only big theatrical contender this week was Lionsgate’s Lord of the Flies in space, aka Voyagers, which was not liked by critics (with a 27% Tomatometer score) or cared about by audiences this weekend grossing a paltry .3 million. Sure, it is only the 12th film of 2021 to open with more than a million, but it could not even crack the top 10 on that small list. Even the long-delayed Chaos Walking managed to open to .77 million, one of only seven movies this year so far to gross over million.Beyond that, it was a week of small drops. Nobody retained its second-place spot falling just 12 percent to .65 million. It has now crossed the million line. Last week’s No. 2, The Unholy, fell to third with only a 23 percent drop. It’s total now stands at .7 million. Tom Jerry dropped only 17 percent and has run its total to over million. Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon actually increased business this week, going up 2 percent and grossing .1 million for a total of million.These Dates In Box Office History: Vin Diesel’s The Fast and the Furious Franchise Revved Up Audiences for the Summer Blockbuster SeasonApril 9: On this day in 2017, the Jennifer Lawrence/Chris Pratt sci-fi film, Passengers, grossed ,876. That was enough to push it over the 0 million mark on its 110th day of release. (What an anniversary for Voyagers to be opening on with its unwanted advances in space premise.)April 10: This is a big date for films crossing the 0 million line. In 1999, Dreamworks’ animated The Prince of Egypt made 1,406 to get there on day 114 of its release. Steven Spielberg got their faster in the director’s chair in 2018 when Ready Player One grossed .34 million to reach the mark in just 13 days. Though eight years earlier in 2010, the remake of Clash of the Titans took in .04 million to reach the milestone in just nine days. Much faster than Vin Diesel’s family film, The Pacifier, did in 2005 when it grossed 9,633 on its 38th day. Diesel got there a lot quicker – and doubled it – 10 years later when Furious 7 made .86 million in its eighth day to cross the 0 million line.April 11: Turns out these are big dates for one Vin Diesel as Fast and Furious is his third film on the list this week. His return to the franchise made .43 million in its ninth day to cross 0 million. Three years later on this date, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax grossed 5,795 to pass 0 million on its 41st day of release. That is a milestone that Fast and Furious would not reach.On the Vine: Fresh Festival Films Take a Shot at Box Office Glory 蓝月至尊高爆传奇游戏是一款超好玩的蓝月系列高爆版传奇手游每天人气都非常高，更有蓝月至尊正版激活码可使用，在这款传奇游戏中，欢迎喜欢传奇游戏的朋友前来下载。
