Here s everything we know so far about the anticipated adaptation.What Is the Game About?(Photo by Naughty Dog/Sony Interactive Entertainment)In The Last of Us, tough-guy survivor Joel Miller is hired to escort a teenager named Ellie through the wasteland and to some doctors who believe that Ellie may be the cure to the plague. As they make their way from what used to be Boston to what s left of Salt Lake City, they run into the usual post-apocalyptic tropes, including roving groups of infected, a couple of cannibals, some huge jerks, and a giraffe who s escaped from a zoo and is getting out while the getting is good.It s expected that while the show will mostly follow the plot of the first game, it may incorporate elements from The Last of Us Part II, which is set five years after the first game. That said, it actually seems more likely that they ll pull elements from The Last of Us: Left Behind, an Ellie-centric prequel set before the events of the first game.But the series is expected to expand upon the game s story as well, including, apparently, some elements that were previously cut from the game. In an interview with the BBC Sounds Must Watch webcast, series co-creator and writer Craig Mazin said of his Naughty Dog collaborator on the series, Neil [Druckmann], at one point, he was like, You know, there s one thing we were talking about [doing in the first game] for a while, and then he told me what it was, and I was like — gonk! — OK, jaw drop, that s going in. We have to do that. Mazin also said, So the changes that we’re making are designed to fill things out and expand. Not to undo, but rather to enhance, adding that, It s not like we just decided, ‘Well, wouldn t it be cool if there’s one episode where Joel and Ellie get on motorcycles and confront a motorcycle gang?’ There s no episodic nonsense here. The things that are new and enhancing of the storyline that we re doing are connected in organic, serious ways that I think fans of the game and newcomers alike will appreciate. Who Will Star in It?(Photo by Toni Anne Barson/WireImage; Dave J Hogan/Getty Images)Fittingly, the cast announced so far includes a few video game veterans. For the role of father figure Joel, the producers chose Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, The Mandolorian), who has interactive experience from voicing Paolo in the 2016 sneaky action game Dishonored 2, while Ellie will be played by Pascal s Thrones co-star Bella Ramsey, who voiced Freya in Doctor Who Infinity: The Dalek Invasion of Time. Then there s The Flight Attentant’s Merle Dandridge, who will play Marlene like she did in the first game (and briefly the second).Anna Torv (Fringe, Mindhunter) is the most recent casting announced. Deadline reports Torv will play smuggler Tess, who accompanies Joel to get Ellie to the Fireflies.The cast also includes an Us veteran in Bosch s Jeffrey Pierce, who was the voice of Joel s BFF Tommy in both games, but will, according to Deadline, have a recurring role as a rebel in a quarantine zone, while Chernobyl’s Con O Neill, who voiced Titchy Gren in the game Dark Souls II, will be joined by Murray Bartlett (Iron Fist) as survivalists living alone in their own isolated town. As for others who don t have any games on their resumes, we also have Gabriel Luna (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Terminator: Dark Fate), who has been cast as Joel s younger brother Tommy, and young Nico Parker, who made her screen debut in Disney s live-action Dumbo, guest-starring as Joel s daughter, Sarah.Who Is Developing the Series?(Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)The series will feature some of the same names as the games. Druckmann — who was the writer and a co-director of the first game and a co-writer and co-director of its recently released sequel — is one of the show s co-creators alongside Mazin, and will probably write or co-write some episodes, while one of the show s execut
The Last Kingdom 91% (Netflix)Berserker Vikings fans will likely have already tasted The Last Kingdom, in which Uhtred, the eldest son of the Saxon Lord of Bebbanburg, is taken as a slave by the Viking raiders that killed his father and later returns to his homeland claim his birthright. Alexander Dreymon (American Horror Story) plays the swaggering hero, and season 4 of the one-time BBC America series just premiered on Netflix in April. The cast includes David Dawson as King Alfred the Great, to whom Uhtred pledges his sword as part of a peace treaty and later in return for land and to become an Ealdorman. Ian Hart appears as Uhtred’s priest-confidante Beocca, while Emily McKenna Cox and Tobias Santelmann are the warrior’s adopted siblings Brida and Ragnar. The Last Kingdom, with series Tomatometer score of 91%, makes a fine binge if you miss Vikings and need a jolt of Danish raids, flashing swords, and 9th-century English politics. – Debbie Day, Sr. TV EditorWhere to watch: NetflixCommitment: 31.5 hours (across four seasons)Dave: Season 1 (2020) 76% (FXX)Dave is a grower. The raunchy FXX comedy, starring Dave “Lil Dicky” Burd as a fictionalized version of himself, does not make the most inviting of first impressions. Rambling with the fretful patter of an adult baby, Burd spends the early going oversharing about his malformed anatomy whenever he isn’t talking up his rapping prowess. Viewers who aren’t charmed by genitalia jokes may dismiss the first few episodes as a successful musician delivering an edgy valentine to himself. Gradually, however, Dave blossoms into something meaningful: It s about how every success story takes a village. The series makes excellent use of Lil Dicky s inner circle, each of his friends harboring relatable aspirations and foibles. We come to appreciate this oddball community and the inexplicably talented man-child who binds them all together. By the end of the first season, we truly believe that Licky Dicky has the goods. So does his show. – Rob Fowler, Review CuratorWhere to watch: Stream on FX Networks app or Hulu; buy or rent on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, or Google Play.Commitment: 5 hours (one season)This Country 96% (BBC)This British mockumentary comedy series had completely escaped my attention until I heard Phoebe Waller-Bridge recommending it on a podcast earlier this year, and it turns out – shocking, I know – that Waller-Bridge has good taste. This Country is brilliant, the kind of seemingly out-of-nowhere gem that you know is going to do big things for everyone involved. (Seriously, it has the feel of Spaced or the U.K. version of The Office.) The “everyone involved” here mostly happen to be from the same family; the series was created by siblings Daisy May and Charlie Cooper, who also star in it as Kerry and Kurtan, two cousins from a village in Southwestern England who are the main subjects of a BBC documentary series about disaffected youth in the rural U.K. The duo’s real-life father plays Kerry’s dad, while their uncle plays a local grouch. The cousins wander the village doing s—t-all, dreaming up small schemes and games to pass the time, and it’s all extremely funny. But what makes This Country truly special – and a multiple British Academy Television Awards winner for two years straight – is its heart. The bond between the cousins and the tenderness and empathy with which every character around them is handled make This Country as moving as it is hilarious. – Joel Meares, Editor-in-ChiefWhere to watch: HuluCommitment: Approx. 5 hours (for two seasons; season 3 is not available in the U.S.)Dispatches From Elsewhere: Season 1 (2020) 87% (AMC)Full disclosure: I didn’t actually binge Dispatches from Elsewhere. I watched in real time, as it was happening (by which I mean the next day on the AMC app). That said, Dispatches from Elsewhere is a show you will want to binge. It’s cliché to say, but here I am, typing this sentence: Dispatches From Elsewhere is like no other TV show I have ever seen. It’s like a mysteriously philosophical scavenger hunt full of art and wonder and. The show begins in one place and ends somewhere you would never expect and I can t say anything else at risk of ruining the joy of the journey. Jason Segel, Sally Field, André 3000, and the wonderful Eve Lindley are a dream team, and Richard E. Grant’s particular brand of charming intensity is put to great use. It’s a fairly introspective show, and while that might not seem appealing when we’re stuck inside with only our thoughts to keep us company, I promise it’s more comforting than existential dread–inducing. – Haña Lucero-Colin, TV Curation ManagerWhere to watch: AMC, YouTube TV (with subscription), Sling TV; buy on YouTube, iTunes, or AmazonCommitment: 10 hours (one season)Upload: Season 1 (2020) 88% (Amazon Prime)Upload is a charming romantic comedy-mystery drizzled in existential horror. On the verge of death after an accident, Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell) is coerced by his clingy, controlling girlfriend (Allegra Edwards) into forgoing surgery, and having his consciousness uploaded to an idyllic, vacation-like simulation, where a digital version of himself (and, eventually, his girlfriend) will live for eternity. It’s like heaven… if heaven exists in a trillion-dollar conglomerate’s computer servers, you have no privacy, and the wealthy sponsor paying your bills in the living world chooses how comfortably you get to live. With the help of his “Angel, Nora (Andy Allo), Nathan navigates what it means to die, and whether a perfect afterlife can ever be as satisfying and meaningful as an imperfect regular life. Oh, and someone may have had him killed, so he’s trying to figure that whole thing out, too! If you are looking to explore the meaning of life but need a heavy dose of laughter to do it, Upload just might be for you. – Tyler Lorenz, Media CoordinatorWhere to watch: Amazon PrimeCommitment: 4 hours (one season)Outlander 89% (Stars)Based on Diana Gabaldon s best-selling novels, Outlander is a historical fantasy romance that stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe as Jaime and Claire Fraser, and the show follows along their passionate and loving journey. It s a little bit of Pride and Prejudice with some Game of Thrones in there. However, what makes Outlander stand out above its peers is that it s confident and committed to the stories it wants to tell for both its male and female characters and does so in a uniquely thoughtful and gripping manner. Above all, it is unapologetically entertaining – which is welcome right now. Keep a special eye on Tobias Menzies and Maria Doyle Kennedy, who stand out even among the fantastic ensemble cast. After one episode, you will most certainly be swept off your feet by Jaime and Claire. After two, you ll never get the gorgeous theme song out of your head. – Daisy Gonzalez, Theatrical Review CuratorWhere to watch: Netflix (seasons 1-3), Starz (seasons 1-5); buy or rent on FandangoNOW, Amazon, or iTunesCommitment: Approx. 100 hours (five seasons)Better Things 97% (FX)It s totally understandable if the last thing you want to watch is a show about the entertainment industry, especially an actor. But Better Things is less of a Stars: They re Just Like Us and more like a Stars: I Empathize With and Sometimes Feel Sorry for Them. Plus, it s the perfect Mother s Day binge watch. Pamela Adlon is Sam Fox, an actress who is always hustling from one gig to the next. She s also a single mother of three daughters, cares for her elderly mother who lives across the street, and doles out alimony to her ex-husband (the only issue I have with the show is that she married this loser in the first place). The show is interspersed with cozy moments of Sam cooking, cuddling on the couch with her family, drinking and trash-talking with friends, and unexpected plot detours. Stars may never be just like us, but you d be lucky if Sam was just like someone you know. – Sara Ataiiyan, Review CuratorWhere to watch: FXNow, Hulu; rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, iTunes, or Google PlayCommitment: 17.5 hours (four seasons)Check out our regular May Binge Guide. Thumbnail image: Jessica Kourkounis/AMC, Adrienn Szabo/Netflix, BBC亚博网址In 2018, Jordan Peele’s Get Out jolted the Oscars status quo by earning nominations for four awards, including a Best Actor nod for Daniel Kaluuya. It’s not totally uncommon for prestige to pluck a horror performance from the dirt and see it as the radiant flower it is: Ruth Gordon won an Oscar for her eerie turn in Rosemary’s Baby; Bette Davis got a nod for her freaky What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? role; and Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman, and Kathy Bates all took home Oscars for Silence of the Lambs, Black Swan, and Misery, respectively. But even when a horror performance is honored, a whole lot of people twist themselves into knots trying to say a film wasn’t actually horror — Kaluuya was nominated for a Golden Globe in the Musical or Comedy category.Ever since the premiere of Peele’s sophomore feature Us at SXSW, Lupita Nyong’o’s stunning performance as Adelaide and Red — two distinctly different but complementary versions of the same character — has been earning her high praise. Not since Jeremy Irons’ turn in David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers has an actor in a horror film rendered such a complex psychological study of the self through twinning. Nyong’o’s transformation is physical and visceral and — pretty clearly — the caliber for awards consideration. So Peele kindly settled any debate before it began by tweeting: “Us is a horror movie.”In honor of all the actors who’ve toiled away in horror, either to be forgotten or snubbed, here are 13 horror performances we’ve adored – but which the major awards ignored.Essie Davis in The Babadook (2014) 98%(Photo by ©IFC Midnight)Before Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook premiered in 2014, Essie Davis was best known in America for her roles in The Matrix films and her portrayal of master sleuth Phryne Fisher in Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (check it out on Netflix – it s a lot of fun). But grieving single mother Amelia was an opportunity for Davis to shine as a complex, terrifying anti-heroine haunted by a ghoulish children’s book character, and the death of her husband. Davis was so committed to the role that she lost her voice for three days after performing a wrenching 11-second scream on set. She told the Guardian, “It didn’t matter if I looked like s t and felt like s t every day, because that’s what it needed.” Her face — often in closeup — is puffy, with wild eyes darting in response to every creak in the house. Amelia is creepy and dangerous, and yet Davis imbues her with a sensitivity that makes her circumstance relatable and that much more horrifying.Toni Collette in Hereditary (2018) 89%When we look back on the scariest mothers of movie history, Toni Collette’s performance as Annie will likely hover around the number-one spot for a long while. Annie is unabashedly selfish with her time and art, quite different from so many of the doting mothers on film who give up their lives for their children. She both has pain and inflicts pain — indicative of the generational trauma of their family — which means she can’t really be boiled down into Good or Bad. Collette slams her whole body and being into this character for a riveting, histrionic performance that lays waste to restraint. Annie’s grief, laughter, and anger show themselves on the screen with Shakesperian levels of gravity and calculated artifice, and no one will soon forget the horrific contortions of Collette’s face as she wails in mourning for the dead. Also, against all odds, Collette somehow finds little slices of humor and humility in Annie. Miraculous. (Miraculous, too, that she was snubbed last awards season.)James McAvoy in Split (2016) 77%How many completely different characters does a guy gotta play in the same movie to get any awards talk? In Split, McAvoy embodies 23 separate personalities, ranging from a literal beast who can crawl up walls to a prim, post-menopausal woman in heels and pearls named Patricia. McAvoy said his favorite character of the bunch was actually a 9-year-old boy named Hedwig, who’s got a slight speech impediment and a whole lot of saliva when he talks. In that role, McAvoy chewed up the scenery, shoulders slumped like a bored child, bouncing off the walls with the energy of a kid who’s seen way too many shoot- em-up movies. McAvoy’s greatest craft trick, however, was in finding the silliness amid the horror, keeping the tension taut throughout those laugh lines, and then searching his way back to a more tender performance as Kevin Wendell Crumb, a broken man lost in his many identities.Nicolas Cage in Mandy (2018) 90%(Photo by © RLJE Films)It’s no secret that Nicolas Cage is known for throwing himself deeply into his roles, creating a kind of fun dance of them, seeing how far he can take the character with spontaneous emotional outbursts. Too many filmmakers simply rely on that Cage-iness when they cast him in their movies, but director Panos Cosmatos offered the actor real motivation with the character of devoted and then heartbroken Red Miller, whose quiet, sensitive side embraces his love, Mandy, with all his heart, before she is brutally ripped from him. Despite Cage’s character having to smelt his own battle axe, Cage himself is actually appropriately restrained and then only unhinged in rare moments when the narrative calls for it, but every emotion is grounded in grief and then wild and painful revenge. Cage co-star Andrea Riseborough as Mandy deserves more than a mention here, as well, having delivered an equally stellar performance that ranges from philosophical monologues to maniacal laughter.Betty Gabriel in Get Out (2017) 98%Betty Gabriel was filming a low-budget action movie called Beyond Skyline when co-star Frank Grillo recommended her for a role in Blumhouse’s The Purge: Election Year. Word had it that Jordan Peele was going to direct his debut feature and was looking to fill out a couple of roles. Gabriel showed up, and the rest is history. As housekeeper Georgina, Gabriel locates the heart of this supporting character — both the woman she was and the new woman who’s inhabiting her body. In one pivotal scene, her voice quakes as she says, “No. No-no-no-no-no-no,” her eyes — filled with tears — at odds with the smile on her face, as though she’s a dummy puppet and either part is being manipulated by a different puppeteer. This chasm in Georgina’s personality becomes her central tension and the source of so many skin-crawling scenes, with the underlying message that the scariest thing is not knowing yourself.Gong Yoo in Train to Busan (2016) 94%Yeon Sang-ho’s ultra-violent zombie action film earned a place in America’s hearts, not just because of its thrilling and bloody chase sequences, but because it’s really the story about a father’s sacrifice for his child. Gong Yoo plays Seok-woo, a busy, divorced dad whose young daughter has asked him to take her to be with her mother in Busan. Before he even gets on the fateful train with the girl, he already feels like a failure, unable to properly show love. Gong Yoo’s performance of this sad dad finding his way grounds an otherwise flighty narrative. Even in busy action sequences populated by hundreds of zombified extras, Yoo exudes a kind of nervous strength focused singularly on the survival of his daughter. Sang-ho also includes another dad in the film, Sang-hwa, played by Ma Dong-seok, who offers an extremely complementary performance to Yoo’s, displaying a kind of earnest courage, which Yoo feeds off of for the transformation of his character.Tony Todd in Candyman (1992) 77%(Photo by ©TriStar Pictures)Who can make you jump out of your skin and also yearn for his fateful embrace? The candyman can! Tony Todd’s presence in this frightfully ridiculous story rises above the material. The convoluted urban fairy tale features Todd as its boogeyman, called from his grave when his name is said in the mirror three times. Todd said he was immediately taken with the role, despite some misgivings around race in the story, simply because the imagery of gore in the city was something he hadn’t seen before. In 2015, he told IGN: “I’ve always wanted to find my own personal Phantom of the Opera.” That desire is evident in Todd’s melodrama and theatricality. He embodies and flaunts the grotesque, a mythically imposing figure with sweeping grand gestures that become impossibly romantic — even though the Candyman’s got a rib cage of bees! Todd’s resonant voice, wide smile, and mesmerizing eyes add up to one tempting, unforgettable villain.Jeff Goldblum in The Fly (1986) 93%(Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp. )It’s galling that, at first, the studio couldn’t see Jeff Goldblum as Seth Brundle, the brilliant scientist destroyed by his own teleportation creation. But perhaps they didn’t know that Goldblum would work out like a madman and drink coffee every waking minute of his days to embody the maniac his character would become — the Brundlefly. Cronenberg knew. As Brundle, Goldblum s natural charisma perfectly matches Geena Davis’ Veronica, a journalist who’s come out to a stranger’s apartment to check out his weird machines. Veronica’s inquisitiveness puzzle-pieces together with Brundle’s excitement, and the two settle into a lovely, if short-lived, romance. Where Goldblum shines is when he transforms into a wild man capable of snapping off a strongman’s arm in a bar. In one scene, the actor ad-libbed an entire caffeine-fueled, buzzy monologue about philosophy and science while Davis played off his energy as the straight-man. Even under pounds of goopy makeup, Goldblum makes his Brundlefly a sympathetic monster of circumstance.Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie in Carrie (1976) 93%Director Brian De Palma was adamant that Carrie’s telekinetic outbursts were simply about teenaged angst, but young actor Sissy Spacek latched onto the idea that Carrie was “really about a young girl who is an artist who just wants to be normal,” and that the girl dreamed of expressing herself through poetry one day, but her fascist mother took it away from her. Spacek’s mythology of her character was so deep that De Palma at times just let her run off with the role, while he focused on specific shots. Her mannerisms equally evoke an innocent naïf and an all-powerful goddess, and her performance is matched only by that of Piper Laurie, who didn’t at first understand what would be required of her from the script, until she read it with the eyes of Lady Macbeth. The result of Laurie’s work is an unrivaled whites-of-her-eyes performance of Biblical intensity, glimmers of it present in Toni Collette’s Annie of Hereditary.Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby (1968) 96%Though Ruth Gordon was honored by the Academy Awards for her part as the nosy neighbor attempting to lure Rosemary into an orgy with the devil, Mia Farrow sadly was not, despite the arc of her emotions anchoring this nightmarish tale. Director Roman Polanski himself said he didn’t really have to direct her. He trusted her to come to these emotions herself, and he didn’t pre-plan or storyboard any shots, instead watching how Farrow approached the scene and setting up around that. Rosemary transforms from shy, childlike cheerleader wife to pregnant paranoid prisoner of a cult. The way she moves between gullibility and strength becomes so relatable, while the gaslighting becomes more and more absurd an accurate, if frightening, portraiture of a woman at the whims of her man and the devil he’s made a deal with. Her performance is so affecting that the calm and resolute demeanor she strikes when she’s made peace with her destiny is both surprising and inevitable.Isabelle Adjani in Possession (1981) 88%(Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection)Three words: Subway tunnel scene. Andrzej Zulawski’s tale of an unearthly sex monster who’s taken hold of a Berlin housewife turns into high art because of Isabelle Adjani’s dedication to self-annihilation over the course of the film. Here, she plays Anna, one half of a marriage that’s suddenly imploding in hysteria and intrigue. Anna’s husband, played by an impeccable Sam Neill, attempts to search out where and with whom she’s been spending her time. When she is in the house, she’s erratic, cutting herself and her husband with an electric knife, eyes possessed. But in that tunnel scene is where the audience gets the full indication of how much Anna’s body is not her own, as Adjani flagellates herself with a milk carton, ramming her tiny frame into the tile walls, bathing in the spilled milk as though she’s communing with a higher, violent spirit. She barks and gasps with laughter until her body erupts with blood and green goop, and, holy wow, is it unnerving.Linda Blair in The Exorcist (1973) 83%Linda Blair earned an Oscar nomination for her role as possessed little Reagan, thank God, but lost out to another young actor, Tatum O’Neil, in the Supporting Actress category. Famously, writer William Blatty blasted George Cukor for leading a campaign to denigrate horror films as undeserving of an Academy Award, but Blair’s performance lives on, award or not. As the lovable Reagan (pre-possession), she gleams with innocence and precociousness, which makes that moment when she stands with blank eyes, cursing her mother’s fancy guests and urinating on the carpet, so shocking. The emotional flexibility it takes for a child to then be strapped to a bed, globbed with green makeup, hurling incredible insults at adults, is otherworldly, not to mention the physicality required of her to constantly thrash on the bed and yank at the straps on her wrists and ankles. Oh, lord, and then there’s the crucifix… We’ll just say it’s a tour de force performance most adult actors wouldn’t have the maturity to do, let alone a child.Jack Nicholson/Shelley Duvall in The Shining (1980) 84%Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall as Jack and Wendy Torrance are two sides of a terrifying coin. Jack is all action, while Wendy is reaction, their push and pull and friction grinding this film into brutal horror. One gets the sense that Nicholson was born to play his role of a sadistic alcoholic narcissist who blames his wife and children for his writerly failures, even though they’ve uprooted their lives to fulfill his dream of finally getting some free time to work on that novel. Nicholson is wild-eyed and untethered, some of his greatest lines (“Here’s Johnny!”) resulting from a multitude of takes meant to wear the actors down into lunacy. Duvall embodies pure, unadulterated fear, lip quivering, earth quaking beneath her. Nicholson’s performance lives on for its horror only because Duvall can deliver the uncertainty and panic, her arms limply but dutifully swinging a baseball bat at an approaching monster Wendy always knew lurked beneath.

Highest Tomatometer(Photo by Everett Collection)The Net 40%Hackers 33%Virtuosity 32%Johnny Mnemonic 13%With a 40% Tomatometer score, The Net wins this category purely because it’s the least Rotten. And why is that? Well, it’s anchored by a likable performance by Sandra Bullock, who plays a cybersecurity specialist trapped in ahem the net of a Hitchockian suspense-thriller involving stolen identities, cyberterrorists, and online pizza-ordering. The movie feels relatively grounded, as there are no cybernetically-enhanced characters, skateboarding villains, or naked bad guys who cut off their fingers. Director Irwin Winkler chose to use the newish technology of the internet to craft an old-fashioned suspense-thriller, as opposed to setting the film far in the future, like, say, the 2021 of Johnny Mnemonic. By blending low-stakes hacking (control-shift) with age-old storytelling, he made the most mainstream of the 1995 computer movies and the one that the least number of critics felt compelled to ESC.In other words, by playing it safe and smart, The Net claimed the best reviews. Winkler’s background as a producer on Goodfellas and Rocky helped, as he knew how to budget and steer a successful film. On the other hand, Johnny Mnemonic was a proposed independent film directed by a relative newcomer that became a summer tentpole and allegedly went through major edits just weeks before release. Similarly, Virtuosity was allegedly rewritten during production, and Washington and Crowe still dislike the movie. Hackers had no interest in playing it safe, and instead focused on the hacker counterculture, which left it open for critical disdain (it was too cool for critics — and most viewers at the time).The best thing about The Net is Sandra Bullock proving how well she can act in front of a computer screen. Todd A. Marks, a consultant on The Net, said, “Some actors can’t really act and type at the same time; Sandra could.” Watch The Net again, and you’ll see what we’re talking about.Highest Audience ScoreHackers 68%The Net 44%Virtuosity 32%Johnny Mnemonic 31%While the Ian Softley-directed Hackers didn’t light the world on fire during its brief September release, it managed to hack its way into the world’s consciousness by effusive word-of-mouth and passed-around VHS tapes. The film is loaded with multiple scenes of hacking and references to iconic cyberpunk author William Gibson (who wrote the original short story Johnny Mnemonic, by the way) and the Hacker Manifesto, but what makes it stand out is its focus on a family unit of likable outcasts who crash on each other s couches and roller-blade their way to victory. The cult classic is a scrappy film featuring authentic-feeling teenagers who go toe-to-toe with a nefarious computer security officer who calls himself The Plague (Fisher Stevens), and who is looking to get rich by embezzling from his employer. Re-watching Hackers in 2020, it’s neat to see how incredibly of-its-time it is, yet somehow also forward-thinking in its funky costuming (still popular today) and its casting of big-screen newcomers Angelina Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller.With over 122,000 audience ratings and reviews that declare it the best movie of all time, Hackers scores an easy win in this category by being both charmingly retro and timeless, thanks to its cyber-world and likable characters like Joey (Jesse Bradford), Cereal Killer (Matthew Lillard), Nikon (Laurence Mason), and Phreak (Renoly Santiago).Biggest Box Office Take(Photo by Everett Collection)The Net .5 millionVirtuosity millionJohnny Mnemonic millionHackers .5 millionThis was an easy win for The Net and Sandra Bullock, who was coming off of the 2 million-grossing While You Were Sleeping, in which she starred as a lonely woman who lies to an entire family about being the fiancè of a man in a coma, then falls in love with the man s brother, and everybody is cool with it. Bullock was so effortlessly likable, as she always is, that the world completely ignored the insanity of the plot. The same thing essentially happened with The Net, a Rotten movie with a 44% Audience Score that still somehow pulled in 1 million worldwide. Basically, The Net could have been replotted as a fishing movie or retitled While You Were Typing, and it still would have been popular if Bullock was the lead. Also, the PG-13 rating and prime July release were enough to make sure it made more money by its second week than the other three films.With that said, none of these films topped the box office during their opening weekends; Johnny Mnemonic debuted at #6, Virtuosity and Hackers both opened at #4, and even The Net only managed to debut at #2. This is remarkable when you consider that, in 1995, movies featuring a red-hot Denzel Washington or Keanu Reeves struggled to make money. Of course, both Johnny Mnemonic and Virtuosity were critically derided for being too silly and derivative, but the 1990s weren’t a particularly great time for virtual reality thrillers in general, as The Lawnmower Man, The Thirteenth Floor, and Ghost in the Machine all failed to crack the zeitgeist.Which Movie Aged the Best?While The Net has the most timeless and grounded plot involving identity theft and internet security, nowadays it plays like any other 1990s thriller, except that it ends with Sandra Bullock bonking a hitman on the head with a fire extinguisher. People still order pizza online, and online security and fraud are still a problem, but for all its foresight, The Net hasn’t inspired a cult following like that of Hackers. Hackers captured lightning in a bottle with memorable catchphrases ( Hack the planet! ), an inspired soundtrack featuring Prodigy and Orbital, and a singular dedication to sunglasses with circular lenses. The film is still mentioned in countless articles (here, here, here, here, and here), and costume designer Roger Burton’s eclectic fashion is beloved, even though in 1995, the actors were thinking “What the f**k is this guy on?” For the film s 20th anniversary, Shout Factory! released a loaded Blu-ray and the cast and crew screened the film all over the world to packed theaters.Virtuosity and Johnny Mnemonic aren t without a few moments of their own, but it’s hard to say they’ve aged the best when the lead actors and writers have virtually disowned them. Johnny Mnemonic still has its charms, though, like its cyberpunk dystopia and a long-haired Dolph Lundgren chewing up the scenery. And did we mention the porpoise? Yeah, Keanu takes Lundgren down with the help of a porpoise. That s worth something.Which Movie Got the Most Right?After scrolling through countless articles about the most realistic hacks and watching videos of hackers analyzing movie scenes, we’re going to go with Hackers here. The Net is a close second, but despite Todd A. Marks being proud of the work he did on that film, he admits “it’s a movie, not a documentary. It’s always a fine line between accurate and visually interesting.” Which makes sense, because if The Net was 100% accurate, it would be a 12-hour film mostly focused on computers loading data. Obviously we didn’t pick Virtuosity, since killer androids aren’t running amok (at least, not that we know of), and despite the very real dangers of email, the world hasn’t resorted to Johnny Mnemonic s data couriers to deliver sensitive information. Of course, Virtuosity and Johnny Mnemonic admittedly weren t striving for realism, and both were so highly speculative about what was possible with computers that we can’t necessarily say that they got things wrong.On the other hand, what Hackers did so well was to capture the actual spirit of, well, hackers. Vice’s Motherboard interviewed real hackers about their love for the film, and while they admit that it’s “fantastical Hollywood stuff” and that it borrowed from the plot of Superman III, they also say “it’s quite possibly the single greatest hacker film known to hackerkind.” The actors went to hacking schools and attended conventions to nail the culture, and they developed a camaraderie that is clearly seen on screen. Several of the “hacks” in the movie have even earned a seal of approval from techies, as the the TV station hack, the editing of the class attendance lists, and the creation of fake personal ads are all possible.Softley realized pretty early on that he didn’t just want to depict pretty people staring at computer screens, so he and Peter Chiang, the VFX supervisor, nearly drove themselves insane creating a visually appealing (and totally unrealistic) world to help audiences understand what exactly was going on. It looks dated now, but in 1995, with the budget they had, it was a brave new world. In the end, they did exactly what The Net s Marks described, skirting that fine line between accurate and visually interesting, and all they got for their trouble was a bona fide cult classic.Final Result(Photo by ©MGM courtesy Everett Collection)So who wins our little unofficial showdown of 1995 s cyber-thrillers? It s Hackers, of course, with its impeccable fashion sense, it s unforgettable one-liners, its earnest, surprisingly authentic portrayal of counterculture attitudes, and so much more. As The Plague would say, There is no right or wrong, only fun and boring, and Hackers is anything but boring, so if you ve never seen it, don t take our word and our very scientific findings here for it. Boot up or shut up.Hackers was released in U.S. theaters on September 15, 1995. It is available to rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes, and it is currently streaming on HBO Max.

Pictures, @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ HBO, @ Amazon )Warning: The below contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.It’s hard to imagine anyone besides Robert Downey Jr. playing our beloved Iron Man — the wise-cracks, the cockiness, the chemistry with Pepper, and that ability to break us in half with grief in the end. In truth, however, the most pitch-perfect casting in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe almost did not come to be. RDJ, as his Avengers castmates call him, was not Marvel’s first choice to play the billionaire/genius/playboy/philanthropist/superhero.The Oscar-nominated star was always known to be talented, but he wasn t a mega-star. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige once told Rotten Tomatoes that back then, the actor was one of the best actors on the planet — [not] necessarily one of the biggest marquee stars on the planet. And at the time of his casting — think back to the mid-2000s — quite a few other A-listers were hoping to don the iconic red and gold suit. An impassioned plea from director Jon Favreau and casting director Sarah Halley Finn to the studio brass was what finally persuaded them to move forward with Downey Jr. In a different world, without that push, Iron Man might have been played by Tom Cruise, who was associated with the project for years.That’s right: Tony Stark was nearly played by the Top Gun star!We may like to think the actors who play ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ are irreplaceable, but many of their now-synonymous roles nearly went to other actors. Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Chadwick Boseman, and Chris Pratt were all accomplished actors before their MCU debuts, but none had the worldwide recognition they have now, following 22 films and billion at the global box office. Their casting was a risk in many ways – but one that paid off. If not for talented casting agents, circumstance, and a little luck, the final battle in Avengers: Endgame might have looked very different indeed.As Endgame continues its global box office domination, on track to be the highest-grossing film ever, let s take a look back at what might have been. Here are 10 Avengers castings that could have totally changed the MCU — and perhaps some other franchises.Black Widow, Played by Emily Blunt(Photo by @Warner Bros. Pictures, Merrick Morton/©Paramount, )This is about as near an actual casting as you can get. It s not hard to picture the Edge of Tomorrow star decked out in Natasha s black spandex and sporting her red locks, but contractual obligations and, oddly enough, Meryl Streep thwarted the plan to cast Emily Blunt. When she signed onto The Devil Wears Prada, Blunt had to agree to a two-picture deal. Fox invoked the clause for Jack Black s Gulliver s Travels, and the English actress was forced to turn down the role of the Russian spy who joined the MCU in Iron Man 2. Scarlett Johansson is Black Widow, and we wouldn t have it any other way, but given how fantastic Blunt was as Rita Vrataski it does make us pause to ponder what if Captain America, Played by John KrasinskiIf nearly having Mary Poppins in black spandex was a jaw-dropper, imagine having Jim Halpert from The Office sporting the star and shield. Since the NBC comedy went off the air in 2013, John Krasinski has done quite a bit of action work. He may be Jack Ryan now in Amazon s series of the same name, but the idea of him playing Captain America in 2011 was harder to picture. Evans was always Marvel s top choice, but he famously turned down the role — twice. While Evans was waffling on the part, the studio proceeded with Kransinski until he and Chris Hemsworth s abs (according to the video above) decided that it was not gonna happen.Doctor Strange, Played by Joaquin Phoenix(Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection, @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)Joaquin Phoenix s first foray into comic-book movies, Todd Phillips Joker, has fans almost hyperventilating — but in a different universe, he might have already had some experience in the genre. Back in 2014, it was reported that Phoenix was in final talks to play the sorcerer supreme. Many supposed at the time that the indie favorite turned down the role of Stephen Strange, which eventually went to Benedict Cumberbatch, because he was not interested in big-budget action flicks. (Guessing they must not have seen Gladiator.) In truth, the Walk the Line actor recently admitted that he enjoys some of the MCU films and he isn t a cinephile or snob; in reference to his brush with Doctor Strange, he said, I think everybody was really happy with how things turned out. Iron Man, played by Nicolas Cage(Photo by Patti Perret/©Alchemy/Courtesy Everett Collection, ©Paramount/Courtesy Everett Collection)When Iron Man was in early development in the 1990s, many at Marvel wanted Tom Cruise to play the role, and it was not the most out-of-left-field casting idea for the character who would become the heart of the Avengers. But believe it or not, Nicolas Cage was also once part of the Tony Stark conversation. A name that invariably pops up with just about every superhero film adaptation — or did at the time — Cage was approached to play everything from the Scarecrow to Superman, and even the Green Goblin. The unabashed comic book obsessive did get to play a superhero in Ghost Rider. While it would be a fun novelty to picture him with the glowing core heart and hear him spouting Tony s clever quips, we feel the the leather-clad flaming-skull bounty hunter for the damned was an infinitely better fit for Cage s over-the-top antics.The Hulk, Played by Edward Norton (again)(Photo by ©Universal/courtesy Everett Collection)Can you have a reverse near-casting? Edward Norton played the Green Rage Monster and the mild-mannered scientist in the standalone Incredible Hulk film, but was replaced by Mark Ruffalo in the first Avengers team-up. Rumors abounded, of course, with some speculating there was a rift between the American History X actor and Marvel. Marvel Studios co-president Feige released a statement before The Avengers cast was announced at Comic-Con in 2011 that put any speculation to bed: Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble. So Norton was out and Ruffalo in. According to Ruffalo s retelling, he didn t find out until moments before the convention. Had things gone another way, and Norton stayed on as Banner, perhaps fewer people would be confused as to why The Incredible Hulk is officially part of the MCU.Drax, Played by Jason Momoa(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection, @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)No one seemed happier that Jason Momoa was playing Aquaman than Jason Momoa, but he nearly took on an MCU role before picking up the trident. The role of the ultra-literal Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy catapulted Dave Bautista from WWE star to movie megastar, and, according to the former wrestler, he had to fight for it —and was terrified of auditioning. Momoa, who had just wrapped playing the hulking Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones when the movie was being cast, said he was tired of playing brutes and looking out for different roles. After auditioning, our future Aquaman therefore passed on Drax, opening the door for Bautista. Momoa has since said the role of of Drax the Destroyer was perfectly cast. Thor, Played by Liam Hemsworth(Photo by Dee Cercone/Everett Collection)The Thor casting process was a real family affair. Before he played Gale in The Hunger Games, Liam Hemsworth was on the shortlist to portray the Asgardian God of Thunder. He got to the final four, and Liam joked in a late-night interview that he bombed the last audition. His failure did, however, help his brother snag the part. After Liam s failed test, the two exchanged notes on what they were looking for in the part. Sir Kenneth Branagh was impressed with the older brother s audition, and the relatively unknown Aussie actor was deemed the only one worthy to wield Mjolnir – for a time.Spider-Man, Played by Timothée Chalamet According to Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet, every up-and-coming young male actor auditioned for the role of Spider-Man. Lucas Hedges, Ansel Elgort, and Nat Wolff all read for the part, but the New York-born Chalamet, who loved the character growing up, was for a time fixated on becoming the iconic web-slinger. While promoting Call Me By Your Name, he recounted his final audition for Spider-Man: Homecoming. “I read twice, and I left sweating in a total panic,” Chalamet said. “I called my agent and I said, ‘I thought about this a lot, and I have to go back and knock on that door and read again,’ and he told me the story of Sean Young and how in an attempt to become Catwoman [she] had scared everyone away when she showed up at the studio gates in costume.” Persuaded not to let his fandom overtake his better judgment, Chalamet left, and Holland was cast instead.Like this?

亚博网址 (Photo by Valerie Macon/AFP via Getty Images)It seems not even a pandemic can stop awards season. Some films like Dune are still a question mark to finish in time for a theatrical 2020 release, but with the Academy extending the window for eligibility and allowing films to bypass a theatrical roll-out, the show will go on even if the show is virtual. Bringing back our series of Ridiculously Early Oscar Predictions, we start the 2020-2021 awards season with the gentlemen. We admit it s a little early, but this isn t exactly a normal Oscar year.Our early Best Actor predictions list is still a bit tenuous, as several films have yet to be screened by critics groups and voters before the February deadline for Oscar submissions. No matter what happens, the upcoming season will make history as the first in which films will not have to screen in theaters to contend for Hollywood s top prize, which sets up some intriguing possibilities for what films could break through and snag a nomination. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) announced earlier this summer that the Oscars would be postponed by two months to April 25, 2021, and extended-release date eligibility rules to February 28, 2021, in addition to allowing streaming-only submissions and making all eligible films available on the Academy screening library, forgoing the typical Oscar voter screenings.Despite being already dubbed The Netflix Season by many of those in the know, fierce competition is a-brewing for 2020. A number of the films likely to be in the conversation have already screened and earned Tomatometer scores, and pundits are already singling out the major standout performances in them. Our list does include performances nobody has seen, but for which pre-release buzz and expectations are high. With that said, some on this list may end up in the Supporting Actor category.Whether we like it or not, the campaigns are quietly underway, the conversation has started, and we re now ready to join it. If history and basic math tell us anything, it is that most of these names won t make it to Oscar night, but we re pretty confident many of them will be right up there in awards chatter. So please read on as we break down our ridiculously early picks for 2020 Best Actor contenders.Don t agree with our picks? Have at us in the comments.Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield, Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) 96%LaKeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya are two of the most electrifying young actors in Hollywood. Working with acclaimed directors like Denis Villeneuve, Rian Johnson, Destin Daniel Cretton, Jordan Peele, Steve McQueen, and Ryan Coogler (who serves as a producer on Judas and The Black Messiah), both actors have amassed impressive filmographies and varied work in just a few short years. After working together for Jordan Peele s Oscar-Winning masterwork Get Out, Stanfield and Kaluuya reunite here to portray two pivotal if not well-known names from the Black Civil Rights movement. Stanfield plays William O Neal, a petty criminal-turned-informant who agrees to work for the FBI to take down Fred Hampton (Kaluuya), the leader of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party. Catapulted into the conversation by a fiery new trailer, the film has all the right pieces to make a deep run, come awards season. A tragic true-life tale with sociopolitical undertones featuring a former Best Actor nominee is the stuff Oscar campaigns are made of. The only question mark now is whether or not the film which has an unspecified 2021 release date will premiere before the February deadline to be eligible for 2020 accolades.Delroy Lindo, Da 5 Bloods (2020) 92%There have been dozens of Vietnam War films over the years to compete for Oscars, but none like Da 5 Bloods, Spike Lee s follow-up to his Oscar-winning hit BlacKkKlansman. The film features stand-out performances from Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Chadwick Boseman, and Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors, but the most actorly performance belongs to Delroy Lindo, who s likely to compete for the Best Actor prize. As the bombastic member of Da 5 Bloods tasked with returning to Vietnam to bring home the remains of a comrade lost during the war and perhaps a hidden fortune Lindo is transformative. Despite a career that spans nearly five decades and over 70 credits, it s surprising that Lindo has never been in the awards conversation, and his role here as the Trump-supporting Vietnam vet with PSTD is his best shot. Spike Lee is coming off his Oscar win for BlacKkKlansman, and his cachet with voters has never been higher. With its timely message, the film could be a huge play for Netflix, which is assumed to do well in this streaming-friendly season.Timothée Chalamet, Dune (2021) 89%Jacqueline ColeyIn the four short years since he broke out into the mainstream with his Oscar-nominated performance in Call Me By Your Name, Timothée Chalamet s name has percolated in the awards conversation. This year he has the enviable position of having two films that could earn him a nomination: Wes Anderson s The French Dispatch and Denis Villeneuve s Dune. His turn in Dune, however, is what we re banking on for him and Arrival director Villeneuve to weave some Oscar magic, with a long-awaited adaptation of the award-winning science-fiction novel by Frank Herbert, poised to be a far cry from David Lynch s much-derided 1984 adaptation. Villeneuve has been on an unbeatable streak with critics and has a proven track record for crafting genre films that capture voters attention, scoring nominations for four of his last five Certified Fresh features, though he failed to secure an acting nomination for Amy Adams in Arrival. It stands to reason that if Dune lives up to even half of its hype, it could equal the accolades of George Miller s Mad Max: Fury Road and perhaps top it with an acting nomination for Chalamet. Starring alongside Oscar Issac, Zendaya, Jason Mamoa, and Javier Bardem, Chalamet is currently in Budapest filming re-shoots; a trailer is expected by the end of the month, and Villeneuve recently said that Dune could be this generation s The Lord of the Rings, so anything is possible.Anthony Hopkins, The Father (2020) 98%(Photo by Sony Pictures Classics)Since The Father s debut at the Sundance film festival earlier this year, Anthony Hopkins has been penciled in at the top of just about every Best Actor tip sheet by awards prognosticators. Still Fresh at 100% on the Tomatometer, the film, which is based on a French play, has seen acclaimed adaptations for Broadway, the London West End, and the French stage, and in each iteration, the actor playing the titular Father has taken home the best acting prize. Adapted and directed by the original playwright, Florian Zeller, the film is a poignant and disturbing journey through the deterioration of a man s mind. Suffering from Alzheimer s, an aging man stubbornly refuses his daughter s aid despite the grown evidence he is losing his grip on reality. A difficult watch, Hopkins work is incomparable with Gregory Ellwood of The Playlist calling it his best work this century. It should bring Hopkins back into the Lead Actor conversation following his supporting nomination last year playing retired Pope Benedict for The Two Popes, and it could be the role that brings him back to the winner s dais for the first time since he won in 1991 as the iconic and terrifying Hannibal Lecter in Jonathan Demme s The Silence of the Lambs.Andrew Garfield, The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2021) 66%Televangelists Tammy Faye Bakker and her husband Jim were two of the most salacious personalities of the 1970s and early 80s, and this drama, based on the award-winning documentary The Eyes of Tammy Faye Bakker, chronicles their rise and very public fall. The story, filled with drugs, fraud, sexuality, and, of course, Jesus, is as legendary as it is incredulous and should place both Jessica Chastain (as Tammy Faye) and Andrew Garfield (as Jim) on the lips of many prominent voices in awards punditry. It also doesn t hurt that it was directed by Michael Showalter, who was in the director s chair for the 2017 Oscar-nominated film The Big Sick. This is another film without a solid release date, so it could be pushed back to 2021, but it will likely still screen in time for the 2020 season. Keep an eye out for an I, Tonya-styled campaign strategy for the previously nominated Garfield and two-time nominee Chastain.Ben Affleck, The Way Back (2020) 84%Ben Affleck has been unfairly maligned as mediocre despite two Oscars and acclaimed work in award-winning films, including Shakespeare in Love, Argo, Good Will Hunting, Gone Baby Gone, and The Town. Following some personal and professional hardships, Affleck kicked off the year with a celebrated performance that mirrored his personal struggles. The newly single father of three plays Jack Cunningham, a former high school basketball phenom who never lived up to expectations and buried his pain at the bottom of a bottle. Forced to take a coaching job at his alma mater years later, he focuses himself on helping the young team, which might be his final shot for redemption. It was a surprisingly well-received entry during the typically lackluster releases of January, and critics raved about the film s feelgood story arc and Affleck s heartfelt performance. Currently rated Certified Fresh at 83% on the Tomatometer, the comeback drama has a built-in awards-friendly storyline, based on true events that are similar to the recently sober star s own personal battles with alcohol exactly the type of narrative strategists love to parrot to voters during the season.Eddie Redmayne and Sacha Baron Cohen, The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) 89%(Photo by Netflix)Produced by Steven Spielberg and written and directed by Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin, The Trial of the Chicago 7 was thought to be a surefire awards contender for Paramount earlier this year. However, difficulties arising from COVID-19 prompted Paramount to sell the film to Netflix, giving the streaming giant yet more ammunition for an impressive haul in what many are dubbing the Netflix Season. The story of seven men charged with inciting a riot outside the Democratic convention in 1969 as part of a larger protest to the Vietnam War is another film tailor-made for awards in an election year. It features key figures from the time, including Black Panther Chairman Fred Hampton (the center of the aforementioned Judas and The Black Messiah) as well as political activist Bobby Seale and famed members of the Chicago 7 Abbie Hoffman and Tom Hayden. Hoffman and Hayden are played by Oscar nominee Sacha Baron Cohen and Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne, respectively, and both men are poised to rise above the already stacked cast that includes Succession s Jeremy Strong, Micheal Keaton, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Willliam Hurt.John David Washington, Tenet (2020) 70%At several points in the past few months, there was some question whether or not Christopher Nolan s latest psychological action film, Tenet, would even reach theaters; as of now, it looks like it will, at least internationally. Never in doubt from a production standpoint, as the film has been long finished, the only question was if the global pandemic would prevent the film being screened in theaters. As Nolan is a staunch advocate of the theatrical experience, it was unlikely that it would shift over to a streaming platform or VOD, especially since Nolan has gone on record to say the films is most designed for the audience/big-screen experience. Appearing alongside our next Batman, Robert Pattinson, and Elizabeth Debecki in what seems to be a mind-bending Inception-style action flick, the star of the film is John David Washington, who looks to achieve what he was unable to garner for his breakout film, Spike Lee s BlacKkKlansman. The plot of Tenet has been kept tightly under wraps even the name of Washington s character, which is currently listed as the protagonist but expectations are high, as Nolan, like Dune s Denis Villeneuve, is a director known for his ability to rack up Oscar nominations for genre films. As last year s Best Actor prize went to a role-based off a comic book character, it s reasonable to believe that this year, an exceptional performance from a genre thriller could do the same.Tom Hanks, News of the WorldIf it s Oscar season and Tom Hanks is in a movie, he s likely in the conversation. However, his Supporting Actor Oscar nomination last year for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood was his first in nearly 20 years. After flirting with a nomination for Sully, The Post, and Captain Phillips, Hollywood s favorite dad is back in in the conversation with two pictures: Greyhound, in which he plays a captain for the third time, and News of the World, where you guessed it he plays yet another Captain. Hanks earned positive reviews for Greyhound, which he also wrote, but his best shot at a Best Actor nomination is likely for Paul Greengrass adaptation of the 2016 novel News of the World. Written by poet and author Paulette Giles, the novel set off a bidding war when it was optioned in 2017, eventually landing at Universal pictures. Unlike Netflix and smaller streamers, large-scale studios like Universal might be at a bit of a disadvantage at voting time, as their tried and true method for promotion cocktail parties, Q As, and craft showcase events will no longer be viable in the days of COVID-19. After three straight years with a favored film in the Best Picture race (Get Out, Green Book, and 1917), one of which was a winner, it will be interesting to see how Universal and the other large studios fare in the new landscape, and the Oscar push for News of the World and Hanks, in particular, will be a strong indication of whether or not they can stay nimble and adapt when forced to find innovative ways to reach voters.Also in contention: Gary Oldman MankLiam Neeson Ordinary LoveDenzel Washington The Tragedy of MacbethBenicio Del Toro The French DispatchMatt Damon StillwaterAnsel Elgort West Side StoryMichael Fassbender Next Goal Wins
手游在最近上线了一些新英雄，同时对其他英雄在基础属性和技能伤害上进行了略微调整。下面就讲讲英雄联盟手游加里奥怎么玩以及加里奥英雄玩法技巧一览。 This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Ferrari, The Flash, The Magic School Bus, and a remake of Twister.This WEEK S TOP STORYMARGOT ROBBIE IS THE NEW PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN CAPTAIN (Photo by ©Warner Bros.)There have been hints in the real world for a while now that Walt Disney Pictures had plans for Pirates of the Caribbean following Johnny Depp s run as Captain Jack Sparrow. Most of this has revolved around the character of Redd, a female pirate who became a featured greeter at the Disney parks in 2018. In late breaking news this Friday, we now know that Margot Robbie is attached to star in a new Pirates of the Caribbean spinoff that will be written by Christina Hodson, who worked with Robbie on this year s Birds of Prey. The new film hasn t actually been confirmed to be a Redd movie quite yet, but that s where the speculation is quickly turning. In a somewhat surprising twist, this new Margot Robbie Pirates of the Caribbean movie will also reportedly be separate from the Pirates of the Caribbean reboot by original Pirates of the Caribbean co-writer Ted Elliot and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin previously, many thought their movie would be the one to introduce Redd. It s possible that Walt Disney Pictures is developing both of these projects to improve their chances that one of them will reach the greenlight stage (Paramount has been doing this for a while with their Transformers projects, including Bumblebee, also written by Hodson). There is no current release date for any new Pirates of the Caribbean project, but with everything going on in the world, it s unlikely it could be before the summer of 2022.Other Top Headlines1. WANNA GET NUTS? MICHAEL KEATON WILL RETURN AS BATMAN IN THE FLASH (Photo by ©Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)The longer big-budget movies take to get produced, the more likely it is that their storylines will twist and change, but at least at one point, the upcoming solo movie for The Flash was going to adapt the Flashpoint premise, which includes both time travel and parallel world -type adventures. Flashpoint eventually became a big part of the TV show The Flash as well, leading to a recent scene during the Crisis on Infinite Earths events when the Ezra Miller s and Grant Gustin s separate versions of the Flash actually met. Possibly confirming a similar story for The Flash (6/2/2022), Michael Keaton is now signed to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne A.K.A. Batman from his two movies with director Tim Burton (1989 s Batman, Fresh at 71%; and 1992 s Batman Returns, Certified Fresh at 79%). The inclusion of Keaton s Batman in The Flash is reportedly meant to establish that there is not just one DC Universe, so that the characters like those in the Arrowverse, Stargirl, Joaquin Phoenix s Joker, Robert Pattinson s The Batman, and the DCEU occupied by Aquaman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman, all exist in separate realities. It s a stark departure from the way Marvel Studios has kept the Marvel Cinematic Universe going in one consistent setting since the first Iron Man in 2008 (the Fox/Marvel movies like X-Men and Deadpool don t count). Warner Bros. is also keeping the door open for other future appearances by Michael Keaton as the older Batman, which might include the long-in-development Batgirl solo movie.2. DISNEY AND LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA GOING TO COLOMBIA FOR ENCANTO (Photo by Lev Radin/Everett Collection)After attaining fame with the hit Broadway musical Hamilton (a filmed version of which is coming to Disney+ on July 3, 2020), Lin-Manuel Miranda expanded into film and animation, including work with Disney on Mary Poppins Returns (in which he co-starred) and Moana (for which he co-wrote the songs). We ve also known for a while that Miranda has a project with Sony Animation called Vivo (6/4/2021), and this week, another new project with Disney Animation was revealed. Talking to Good Morning America on Monday, Lin-Manuel Miranda mentioned that he is spending his quarantine-at-home time working on an untitled Disney animation project set in Colombia. Reportedly, the project will be directed by Byron Howard and Jared Bush, who worked with Miranda as the directors of Moana (Certified Fresh at 95%). This news came just a few days after this Disney blog reported that Miranda, Howard, and Bush were working on a Disney musical called Encanto (Spanish for charm ), about a young girl from a magical family who herself does not have any magical powers. Some sites are already listing Encanto with a possible release date of November 24, 2021, but release dates are obviously very fluid right now.3. HUGH JACKMAN TO REV HIS ENGINE IN MICHAEL MANN S FERRARI BIOPIC(Photo by Wilson Webb/©Warner Bros.)One of the biggest box office surprises of late 2019 may have been the car race period piece Ford v Ferrari (Certified Fresh at 92%), which was able to earn over 7 million in the USA and over 5 million globally. It was not the only Ferrari project being developed at the time, though, as director Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral, Public Enemies) had also been trying to get his own biopic project going about the life of Italian automobile tycoon Enzo Ferrari, who also played a pivotal role in Ford v Ferrari. Michael Mann s Ferrari project is now being sold at the Cannes Virtual Market with Hugh Jackman attached to star as Enzo Ferrari. The focus of Ferrari will be the summer of 1957 (nine years before the events of Ford v Ferrari) when both Ferrari s personal and professional lives were in turmoil. Mann reportedly completed a new rewrite of the Ferrari screenplay, which is based on the Brock Yates book Enzo Ferrari The Man and the Machine. Of course, it s worth noting that Hugh Jackman is very specifically Australian, so it will be interesting to see if he attempts to appropriate any sort of Italian accent in the new film.4. CHRISTOPHER NOLAN S TENET DELAYED AGAIN, SIGNALING BAD NEWS FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020 (Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Not that long ago, many in Hollywood were hopeful that movie theaters could be back in business by July, but that was before recent reports of the COVID-19 pandemic numbers going up in many states and Governor Cuomo of New York postponing movie theater reopenings. Even as dozens of projects were delayed from this summer (or went Video-on-Demand), Warner Bros. and director Christopher Nolan have been adamant about Nolan s action film Tenet remaining a summer 2020 movie (though they did delay Tenet earlier this month from July 17 to July 31). Well, Warner Bros. has moved Tenet again, this time back another two weeks to August 12, 2020 (two days before Bill Ted Face the Music and Greenland on 8/14/2020). With this move, the most anticipated movie still scheduled for July (for now) is Disney s Mulan (7/24/2020), but speculation is high that Mulan will also be delayed. Other movies still scheduled for July include Unhinged (7/10/2020), The Broken Hearts Gallery, and Cut Throat City (both 7/17/2020). In related news, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, previously scheduled for a theatrical release on May 22, 2020, will now debut as a streaming title sometime in early 2021.5. TWISTER GETTING A REMAKE FROM TOP GUN: MAVERICK DIRECTOR (Photo by ©Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)Although the genre is seemingly being kept alive singlehandedly by Gerard Butler (Geostorm, next month s Greenland), the disaster movie is not as common in recent years as it was in the 1990s and 2000s, when titles like Independence Day, 2012, The Day After Tomorrow, Deep Impact, and Armageddon were major box office hits. 1996 in particular was a big year for the genre with the #1 film being Independence Day and #2 being Twister (Rotten at 57%). Perhaps seeing Twister as even more relevant now (thanks to climate change), Universal Pictures is actively developing a remake. Director Joseph Kosinski, who has worked with Tom Cruise twice (Oblivion and the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick) is now in talks for the Twister remake with screenwriters currently being sought. It s currently unclear how closely the new film will stick to the storyline of the original, which focused on a team of storm chasers played by Helen Hunt, the late Bill Paxton, and the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Kosinski was also at one time developing a remake of The Black Hole for Disney, but that project appears to have been scrapped (or, at best, delayed indefinitely).6. JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION WILL REINTRODUCE OBSCURE JURASSIC PARK CHARACTER(Photo by Universal Pictures)When we first started hearing about the upcoming third Jurassic World movie we now know as Jurassic World: Dominion (6/11/2021), one of the biggest stories was that it would feature the return of three of the original Jurassic Park stars: Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill, all reprising the same characters. Characters from the first Jurassic Park have returned before, including the kids in The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and BD Wong in Jurassic World, but Jurassic World: Dominion will feature another surprising return. Campbell Scott has reportedly signed on to co-star in Jurassic World: Dominion as Dr. Lewis Dodgson, a character from Michael Crichton s novels who appeared in Jurassic Park as the mysterious figure who gave Wayne Knight s character the cannister in which to put the stolen dinosaur embyros. Scott is taking over the role likely to be one of the film s villains because the actor who played Dodgson in Jurassic Park, Cameron Thor, is no longer available. 7. ELIZABETH BANKS TO DRIVE THE LIVE-ACTION MAGIC SCHOOL BUS(Photo by Saeed Adyani/©Netflix)After a long history of animated TV shows based on their various characters, Scholastic Entertainment is now starting to develop more and more theatrical feature films, including Goosebumps (Certified Fresh at 78%), Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (Rotten at 48%), the upcoming Clifford the Big Red Dog (11/13/2020), and announced just last week, the Animorphs movie. We will also soon be able to add a live-action adaptation of The Magic School Bus to that list, as Elizabeth Banks has signed on to produce and star as Ms. Frizzle, the teacher who drives the bus as it takes kids on adventures through time and space. In the animated TV series, Ms. Frizzle was originally voiced by Lily Tomlin, with Kate McKinnon coming on board later to voice her sister. The Magic School Bus will be distributed by Universal Pictures, which is also the studio that released the three Pitch Perfect movies in which Elizabeth Banks also co-starred (and she also directed Pitch Perfect 2).8. BILL MURRAY TO VOICE A DOG IN BUM S RUSH (Photo by Fox Searchlight courtesy Everett Collection)After starring in both Garfield: The Movie (Rotten at 15%) and Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (Rotten at 11%) (and thankfully, not a Garfield 3 as seen in Zombieland: Double Tap), Bill Murray also voiced one of the talking dogs in frequent collaborator Wes Anderson s Isle of Dogs (Certified Fresh at 90%). This week, Murray signed on for yet another voice role as a stray dog named Bum in Bum s Rush, along with Anne Hathaway and Robert Duvall. Bum s Rush will be directed by Aaron Schneider (Greyhound, Get Low) from a screenplay by C. Gaby Mitchell, who received a story credit on Blood Diamond and co-wrote Get Low. The independent drama will be filmed in Santa Barbara and New Mexico, though it s unclear, as many film productions are forced to address, when exactly they might be able to get that done. Hathaway will play a custom boot maker who befriends Murray s Bum as these two independent souls find themselves at a serious crossroads, one that will change both their hearts and minds in ways they can hardly imagine. 9. SCI-FI COMEDY ALPHA GANG RECRUITS STAR-STUDDED ENSEMBLE CAST (Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)As movies are increasingly based more on concept or franchise than the star s fame, we see fewer stories about the sort of star-driven projects that used to be the norm. That said, the Cannes Film Festival or, as it s been rebranded this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Cannes Virtual Market remains one of the places where these sort of retro star-driven projects can still generate interest. One of the movies at the market this year is a sci-fi comedy called Alpha Gang, about a group of aliens who are sent on a mission to conquer Earth disguised as a gang of bikers. Alpha Gang will feature an ensemble cast that includes Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Independence Day: Insurgence), Jon
