The Invisible Man (2020) 91% Once upon a time, Universal Pictures had plans for a so-called Dark Universe, in which the studio hoped to reboot all of its classic monster movies and bring the characters together in a united storyline akin to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, after the mediocre performance of 2014 s Dracula Untold prompted a soft reset of the franchise, 2017 s The Mummy officially halted those plans when it also debuted to dismal box office returns and even worse reviews, forcing Universal to rethink their strategy entirely. The solution? Stick to standalone films, at least for the time being. That brings us to this week s The Invisible Man, a new take on the classic H.G. Wells novel that shifts the focus from the titular character to the woman he terrorizes. Elisabeth Moss is the woman in question, an architect trapped in an abusive relationship with a brilliant but controlling scientist, who finally finds the courage to flee the relationship, only to learn her ex has committed suicide. Or has he? Is he the one stalking her from the shadows and breathing down her neck? And if he is, who will believe her? Critics say The Invisible Man is a smartly written thriller that tackles timely themes but also provides sufficient spectacle, and it benefits from a magnetic performance from Moss in the lead. The Dark Universe may be no more, but if Universal continues to make films of this caliber, they may be onto something after all. 近两年，随着疫情的影响，大部分产业即使已经复工但在短时间内也很难回到疫情前的效果，而手游行业在疫情期间是一个不减反增的行业。随着手游市场的带动，手游代理平台也不断兴起，在当下的市场上也有进一步的发展，游戏手游代理平台都有哪些，小编在这对正规的游戏代理平台排名做个盘点：

Rick O Connell defeated the Mummy 20 years ago today, but as Imhotep liked to say, death is only the beginning. The Brendan Fraser-led action-adventure remake of The Mummy has proven to be as enduring as its titular bandaged baddie, and 90s moviegoers of a certain age still remember the film fondly.Although based on a black-and-white horror movie from nearly 70 years earlier, 1999 s The Mummy – released May 7 of that year – owes more to Harrison Ford than it does to Boris Karloff. With a swashbuckling sense of adventure, some supernatural spooks, and a stellar cast, Stephen Sommers globetrotting spectacle recaptured Indiana Jones’ magic for millennials, swapping the Ark of the Covenant for a sarcophagus that never should have been opened, even if it was a blessing, not a curse, for moviegoers. How was it that The Mummy was able to channel Indy so successfully?It Put a Fun Spin on Past InspirationsBoth The Mummy and Indiana Jones draw inspiration from the same era not ancient Egypt, though that’s obviously a factor, but the films of the 1930s. When they created Indiana Jones, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas wanted to revive the spirit of old matinée serials and pulp magazines. Indy was the modern version of Doc Savage, an adventurer who explored strange new lands and braved thrilling challenges. By virtue of premiering almost 20 years after Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Mummy was able to invoke not just the spirit of those old serials in the same way, but also Indiana Jones itself, putting its own spin on the vintage tropes.But The Mummy also benefits from its own history. 1932 s The Mummy, one of Universal Studios’ classic monster films, provided the 1999 movie its name and general plot, and the remake takes those ideas and runs with them. The original film is great, but it s slower than the shambling monster itself, and there is actually very little “mummy action,” as modern viewers might define it. Boris Karloff is chilling as the creature, but he’s hardly in bandages, instead opting to blend into society and manipulate victims with his piercing gaze.The 1999 Mummy effectively plunders the 1932 Mummy’s tomb, which seems fitting. It’s a good bit of grave robbing, though, as the remake does a genre switcheroo, infusing the old plot into another mold, one that Indiana Jones had so successfully revived, and makes it work spectacularly.Brendan Fraser is Harrison Ford with a Goofier Smile(Photo by Universal Pictures courtesy Everett Collection)Brendan Fraser is still doing great work (he’s a delight as the voice of Robotman on DC Universe’s surprisingly good Doom Patrol series), but it’s hard to overstate just how hot he was in the 1990s, both as an acting commodity and as a hunk. Without Fraser, The Mummy doesn’t work, just as Harrison Ford is integral to Indiana Jones’ success.As Rick O Connell, Fraser is able to showcase a lot more of his chops than one might expect, effortlessly conveying our hero’s wide range of emotions across a variety of outsized set pieces and quieter moments. When we first meet him in prison, he’s a quip-happy nihilist who remains somewhat distant once he s freed. On the voyage to the City of the Dead, O’Connell gradually opens up, finding his purpose, his courage, and a hankering for romance. Fraser has all the looks of a classic pulp hero, only he’s got the charm and the heart to make O’Connell more than just an adventuring straight-man.In that way, Fraser’s not unlike Ford, who imparts Indiana Jones with just the right mix of world-weariness and wonder. If there’s a difference between the two, though, it’s that Fraser is more game than Ford. Whereas Ford makes characters like Han Solo and Indiana Jones work by keeping them somewhat at arm s length — a subtle, constant eye-roll that lets viewers know not to take everything too seriously — Fraser is a puppy. There’s something indescribably late-’90s about the way his smile radiates in the role, his enthusiastic force of personality welcoming viewers into spooky tombs. Just as O’Connell couldn’t keep playing the part of the gruff veteran, Fraser can’t help but have a great time, and the audience loves him for that.The Supporting Cast of Characters Belongs in a MuseumWhile it’s fun to watch characters like Indiana Jones and Rick O’Connell explore unknown lands, their journeys would be far less entertaining without other memorable characters to play with. Where’s the fun in an action-adventure if there’s nobody to trade witty one-liners with?While Raiders of the Lost Ark has Karen Allen’s Marion Ravenwood, The Mummy has Rachel Weisz’s Evelyn “Evie” Carnahan. She’s a perfect match for O’Connell, as the two characters trade the high ground throughout the movie. When one makes a mistake, the other has the solution, and together they blur the line between courage and foolhardiness. Evie and O’Connell egg one another on, buoyed by Fraser and Weisz’s excellent chemistry.John Hannah, on the other hand, offers plenty of comic relief as Jonathan Carnahan, who is in way over his head when it comes to this whole “ancient curse” business — think of Henry Jones Sr., Marcus Brody, or even Temple of Doom’s Willie Scott. The sniveling Beni (Kevin J. O Connor), along with the group of rival American Egyptologists, serves as a fitting counterpart to the heroes, just like many of Indy’s ersatz foes. Oded Fehr also imbues personality into what could have been a stock role as Ardeth Bay, the leader of the guards who have kept Imhotep at bay for three millennia.Then there’s Imhotep, the Mummy himself. As played by Arnold Vosloo (once he claims enough victims to graduate from emaciated CGI skeleton to f
aming service — Apple TV+ — for the eight-episode adaptation of Lisey s Story, which King himself has penned. King has said the novel — which follows the widow of a famous novelist coping with his death, and which King wrote following his own serious car accident — is his favorite, so it makes sense that the author himself would shepherd it to the small screen.Julianne Moore stars as the titular character and Clive Owen as her late husband, Scott Landon, and the story goes back and forth in time from the past to Lisey s present, with a visit to dream world Boo ya Moon in between as an obsessive fan (Dane DeHaan) tries to gain access to Scott s unfinished manuscripts.Rotten Tomatoes spoke to Abrams about Lisey s Story, his past (and hopefully future) collaborations with King, and what else he and his team at production company Bad Robot have in the works.(Photo by Apple TV+)Jean Bentley for Rotten Tomatoes: You ve worked with Stephen King before, but he has said many times that Lisey s Story is very personal to him. Did you have a different experience this time around because of that?Abrams: Well, it was different in that he wrote all the episodes. I think that obviously speaks to how much it means to him. I had read over the years that this was his favorite book he d written, and it was when he said he wanted to write every episode that I realized he meant it. What was wonderful about it was that he really did adapt it, which is to say it s a very internal book. Instead of doing a kind of transcription to another form, he really did something that I think is far harder to do than it might seem: look at the work and figure out how to take what s so internal and translate it to a different medium. Pablo Larraín, our director, was super helpful with that as well. [Stephen was] all in on this one. What was wonderful was that he loved what not just Pablo but the cast was doing, and became our loudest cheerleader as the production was underway.Rotten Tomatoes: What about from your perspective? Was anything particularly different with this collaboration? How hands-on were you in this show?Abrams: Sometimes being a producer is putting out fires everywhere you look. In some cases, it s figuring out how to identify what the story really is or might be, or how to fix things that are evidently broken. In the case of this, it was really to help put together the team and be there to talk to any of the players at any time when necessary, but really to get out of the way and let them do their job. Stephen King is such a master of the form. Being the recipient of these drafts of the episodes that he was writing was really just a gift to all of us and Pablo. Again, there were always creative conversations about how to best do it. Lisey s Story is a very interpretable book, which is to say the idea of Boo ya Moon, this other world, this other existence, everyone who reads the book is going to have a slightly different vision. Pablo is responsible for making that a very specific and very photo-real thing. How do you do that best? What does that look like? How does it work?I was always nervous, of course, that somehow Stephen would feel like that character, that relationship, that world, that look didn t quite [translate]. He s been doing this a while, [so] he understands that a director s job is to interpret for all of us what it is he or she sees. What was great was that Stephen was as supportive as he was along the way.(Photo by Apple TV+)Rotten Tomatoes: From a wider perspective, where do you think Lisey s Story fits in with what you are doing at Bad Robot and the kinds of projects you re producing there?Abrams: We are producing all sorts of things and just recently getting into animation. We re doing some stories that are based on books — in some cases comic books, in some cases original ideas, which are some of my favorite things that we re working on. A lot of the strategy or planning of what one might think your job is or your company is going to be, frankly, I m doubtful that those strategic plans always make sense and work. The only litmus test I have for a project that we work on is does it have an ooh factor. Am I leaning in to that project? It could be a comedy, it could be a horror film, it could be science-fiction, it could be a straight drama, it could be a love story, it could be live-action or animated, TV or film. It could be a book, it could be a stage production. If there s something that makes me feel like I want to see that, I want to read that, I want to listen to that, that, to me, is the only litmus test. I m just a bit dubious about long-term plans that go beyond truly making the best decision that you can moment to moment, and signing on to work with people that inspire you. Certainly, in the case of Lisey s Story, that was true.Rotten Tomatoes: You ve named a lot of different genres, not just the ones you re best known for. But people don t only watch one genre, so it feels like you re running the whole gamut of what anyone would be interested in.Abrams: I know that it might seem like Bad Robot is, Oh, it s that place where they do the sci-fi movies. We re about to start shooting a movie with Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett that is a great survival drama with these two women at the center. There s nothing science-fiction or otherworldly about it. It s a compelling story. I just feel like whenever we find something that we really can sink our teeth into, those are the kinds of stories that we would like to tell. All of us, I think, are open to any genre if the story is told well.Rotten Tomatoes: Like your other Apple TV+ show, Little Voice. It s just a nice drama.Abrams: It was a very sweet series. It reminded me a lot of back in the day when we were doing the show Felicity — it was just the idea of young people who were opening their hearts to each other and struggling with what it is to be alive in the world. There isn t a genre that I feel doesn t potentially fall into the category of something we would love to do.Rotten Tomatoes: Exactly, and then you move on to a show with Julianne Moore and Clive Owen traversing different worlds.Abrams: Yeah, totally. Again, I can t explain it other than to say I don t think any of us want to eat one meal every day for the rest of our lives.(Photo by Apple TV+)Rotten Tomatoes: Lisey s Story tackles the themes of toxic masculinity and entitlement and fandom in a really interesting way that I have not necessarily seen you tackle in your other work, and it s probably something that both you and Stephen King have experience with.Abrams: I think one of the reasons that this was so important to Stephen King is that it spoke to his real life. Not just his work, but his marriage. Not just his work that he does, but the result of the work that he does. I think anyone who is in the public eye, anyone who is putting out work that touches people in any way runs the risk of having the kinds of fans that you find, certainly, in this story. I think that that was one of the things that he was really wrestling with. If he were to be gone and Tabitha, his wife, were to be there, what would that be like if some of the fans [showed up] that he knows have acted in a certain way? It s a scary and wildly relatable thing to anyone who s in that and many other professions.The story is Lisey s, and this is ultimately a story of hope and perseverance, but also deep suffering. What that character goes through is so horrific, not only in the backstory and understanding what she s been through, but what she goes through in real time and having to basically bear the burden of what it is that her husband has left for her. I think that it is a frighteningly realistic aspect to this really unique combination of genres, but it s something that Stephen obviously had a lot of feelings about. I completely understand where he was coming from with it because it s clearly something that is probably on the mind of anyone who s in the public eye.Rotten Tomatoes: It feels like a lot of people in the past year have taken a step back and started to reflect on their lives and their life s work. It feels timely in that sense, too.Abrams: I know exactly what you mean. The truth is that for all of us this year has been a year of loss, a year of struggle, a year of introspection and reconsideration, and in many cases, a year of gratitude and re-prioritizing things. I feel like part of what the story is about, which I think is very much in line with what you re saying, is that when your life is going on, there is a sense of an autopilot mode. When things get interrupted, you cannot help but stop and reconsider. I think that s what, certainly, Lisey goes through about her life, her marriage, and then having to question, how do you handle this? How do you overcome this? Who are you going to be moving forward? I think, to some degree, we re all going through that.(Photo by Apple TV+)Rotten Tomatoes: Were there any really difficult aspects of this show from conception to finished product? You had to stop production in the middle of everything, but what else was just a real struggle?Abrams: There were things like how do you bring to the screen something that is so fanciful and as fantastical as Boo ya Moon? Clearly, that was Pablo Larraín, our amazing director s vision and work, very much alongside Stephen King. Weirdly, when I started to see what he was doing with Boo ya Moon, I felt like, Oh. Wow. That was what I saw in my head, even though everyone will have their own version. I think the hardest thing was what you mentioned, the fact that well into production we had to shut down as the world did. We were one of the first productions to get back up and running again, doing so both here and, unexpectedly but we had to, overseas in Germany. I m incredibly grateful to the production people at Bad Robot and Warners and the entire cast and crew who managed to complete this thing. At the end of the day, it s seamless, but I know what had to happen for this thing to be finished. It was certainly challenging and a lot. I m grateful to all of them for that.Rotten Tomatoes: In that same vein, is there something about this project in particular that you re really proud of?Abrams: Well, obviously, any time we get to work with Stephen King is a point of pride. I m incredibly honored to have gotten to be associated with him on this. The cast is remarkable. Julianne Moore, I can t say enough about her. What she has to do in this project is enormous. She s so good and she s so lovely as a human. She makes it seem weirdly inevitable and effortless, none of which it is. I think to the entire cast and crew, I m just deeply moved by what they were able to do.For me, one of the unsung heroes — but maybe he will be sung — is Dane DeHaan, who brings this bad guy to life in a way that is so weirdly dimensional, and real, and funny, and horrifying, and awful. He ends up being one of the villains for the ages. I m enormously indebted to him. But like I said, Pablo and Stephen, to me, are the two people who came together to be remarkably more than the sum of their parts. I m so grateful for that.The first two episodes of Lisey s Story premiere Friday, June 4 on Apple TV+, with new episodes released weekly.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.
Welcome to the gun show, movie fans: On this latest episode of Vs., two absolute titans of blockbuster cinema will go round for round (and bench-pressed pound-for-pound) to decide who is the quintessential action hero. Will it be the man who segued from Mr. Universe to Robot Who Wants To Destroy The Universe to Robot Who Wants To Save The Universe? (OK, the Terminator sets out to destroy/save “world,” but still, we were trying something…) Or will it be the eyebrow-raising onetime wrestling champ who went from the ring to the desert and on to the Jungle (where he has cruised and been “Welcomed” – twice if you watched The Rundown with its international title). Dwayne Johnson and Arnold Schwarzenegger battle it out over five categories – box office, Tomatometer and Audience Scores, iconic moments, franchisability, and a wild card topic – under the watchful eye of our own brawny action hero, Mark Ellis. Who will walk away with the championship belt? Tune in to find out.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.
