(Photo by Bethesda Game Studios)While there s been plenty of movies, books, and comics set in post-apocalyptic worlds, few have been as unique as those in the numerous 50s-flavored Fallout games. Now, Amazon Prime is planning to bring that unique perspective to television, and with some help from people who made the games. And while we don t much about the show yet, what we have learned makes us excited to wander the wasteland again.The world of the Fallout games is one in which the art-deco style of the 1950s persisted, even as we developed robots and nuclear-powered cars. But so did the atomic bombs, as the world learns first hand when a nuclear war decimates the planet in 2077. Good thing people in the 50s were also big on bomb shelters, which is how some people managed to survive in underground shelters called Vaults.In most of the games, it s been 200 or so years since the bombs dropped. What remains of the world is a wasteland full of mutants, giant insects, zombie-like ghouls, and other irradiated wildlife. But there are also some regular people, including a widespread military organization called The Brotherhood of Steel whose members wear suits of armor similar to what Tony Stark built in the first Iron Man movie.(Photo by Bethesda Game Studios)As for a more specific plot the Fallout show may follow, well, that depends on which of the recent games they base the show on assuming they even follow the plot of the game series and don t just create an original story in the same fictional universe, but in a previously unplayable location.If they do follow the games, though, they have a couple of interesting options. In 2008 s Fallout 3, a 19-year-old kid (created by the player) who grew up in a Vault near Washington, D.C. leaves to explore the world of 2277 in an attempt to find their father, who had escaped the Vault as well.Then there s 2015 s Fallout 4, which is set in the remnants of Boston and its suburbs. In that game, a survivor from 2077, who had been in suspended animation for 200 years, is trying to find the baby that was stolen from them while they were asleep.Amazon could also opt to base the show on the most recent installment, 2018 s Fallout 76. Set in 2102, just twenty-five years after the war, that game follows someone who grew up in Vault 76 when it opens twenty-five years after the war, and the former residents head out to forge a new life for themselves in the remains of West Virginia.Granted, there are other scenarios and locations they could explore in the show. There s the Southern California setting of the original 1997 game, or the remains of Las Vegas from 2010 s Fallout: New Vegas. But given that those games were not made by Bethesda Game Studios — who made Fallout 3, 4, and 76, and who are overseeing the show — we re guessing the odds aren t good.Who are the creatives involved?(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)For the Fallout TV show, Amazon has employed the team of Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, who you may know from their work on HBO s Westworld. The two will be writing and executive producing the series through their company, Kilter Films the same roles they have on Westworld. Joining them is fellow executive producer Athena Wickham, who is also an executive producer on Westworld, and a fellow Kilter employee.As for names familiar to fans of the games, the Fallout series will also be executive produced by Todd Howard, who was the game director on Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, and the executive producer on Fallout 76 and the mobile spin-off Fallout Shelter, as well as James Altman, who is the director of director of publishing operations for Bethesda Softworks, the company that publishes the Fallout games.In a joint statement by Joy and Nolan issued when they announced the show, they said, Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios. As for the production, it will be handled by Kilter, Bethesda Softworks (who are new to TV), Bethesda Game Studios (also new to TV production), and Amazon Studios, whose TV credits include their own shows The Boys and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, as well as HBO s Euphoria.Who Will Star in It?(Photo by JA/Everett Collection, Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images, Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)At the moment, no cast has been announced for the Fallout series, and given that we don t know which Fallout game will be the basis for it, or if the show will even be based on a specific Fallout game, it s near impossible to guess who they might cast.That said, there were some notable names in the games that could reprise their roles, or take on new ones. For instance, the aforementioned father that you re trying to find in Fallout 3 was voiced by Liam Neeson yes, he of the Taken movies who has guested on such TV shows as Family Guy and The Orville. Other notable voice cast members from that game include Malcolm McDowell, who was the voice of President John Henry Eden and whose TV credits include Franklin Bash and the upcoming Truth Seekers, and Odette Annable, who was the voice of Amata Almodovar, and who s done runs on House and Supergirl.As for the other games, Fallout 76 s cast included Adrienne Barbeau, who s been on such shows as Carnivale and Maude, while Claudia Christian of Babylon 5 and 9-1-1 has voiced multiple characters in Fallout 4 and 76.Then there s Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, who has done voices in Fallout 4 as well as such other Bethesda games as Rage 2 and multiple installments of their Elder Scrolls series (and, we should note, is also married to Robert A. Altman, the Chairman and CEO of Bethesda s parent company, ZeniMax Media).They could even tap the voice cast of Fallout: New Vegas, which is part of the series and published by Bethesda Softworks, but was not made by Todd Howard and the good people at Bethesda Game Studios. Not only did that game feature the vocal talents of Friends star (and Fallout superfan) Mathew Perry, but it also featured such TV stars as Chuck s Zachary Levi (A.K.A. DC s Shazam!), Dave Foley from NewsRadio and The Kids in the Hall, Michael Dorn of Star Trek fame, Battlestar Galactica s Michael Hogan, Danny Trejo, Kris Kristofferson, and, of course, Wayne Newton.But the real question for fans of the games is whether or not they ll get Ron Perlman, who s been the narrator in nearly every Fallout game going back to the 1997 original, to welcome people to the series, or maybe even every episode, with his iconic opening line, War War never changes. When will it premiere?(Photo by Bethesda Game Studios)Of course, like all TV shows these days, the Fallout series is in a bit of a holding pattern thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. And as anyone who s played the game will tell you, it s not going to be a show you can shoot on Zoom. But it is one you could write and cast and perform other production tasks for, which is undoubtedly what Joy, Nolan, Howard, and the rest of the crew are doing in hopes of getting the show on air, er online soon. Maybe even next year. 第三，手游自己要适应中国玩家的习惯，包括推出用户更加喜欢美术感以及游戏本身的界面设计，以及一些便捷功能方面的优化。
Better get your scares in while you can, because three Fresh and Certified Fresh horror movies are leaving Netflix at the end of October 2020. Tim Burton s collaboration with (who else?) Johnny Depp scored a Fresh 69% after its 1999 release, while Best Picture-winning The Silence of the Lambs and unique zombie-take The Girl With All the Gifts are Certified Fresh; all three will be gone after Halloween.In general, a larger-than-usual chunk of Netflix s Certified Fresh movies are leaving at the end of the month, including modern sci-fi classic District 9, Steven Soderbergh s Magic Mike, epic 80s fantasia The Neverending Story, and the classic Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan romcom Sleepless in Seattle.Other popular movies soon to leave Netflix, and which didn t score particularly high with critics, include the first three Underworld movies, Mel Brooks spoof Spaceballs, Jim Carrey s career-starter Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and Jack Black s Nacho Libre.Read on for the full list of movies leaving Netflix at the end of October 2020, and then take a look and get ready for everything coming to Netflix in November.Leaving 10/31亚博是什么平台(Click to enlarge.)After six grueling rounds full of drama and unexpected developments, one summer blockbuster has emerged from the pack to be crowned the Ultimate Summer Movie, and that movie is Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. The first sequel to the original Star Wars considered by many to be the best of the franchise surprisingly struggled just a bit in the early rounds, as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Sam Raimi s Spider-Man both posed bigger challenges than expected. But Empire rallied to defeat Captain America: Civil War (by its widest margin of victory in the whole tournament), Back to the Future, The Dark Knight Rises, and finally its own franchise successor, Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, which it also defeated rather handily. Packed with iconic moments that have influenced the movies for decades, The Empire Strikes Back remains one of the best examples of how to craft an amazing sequel, so it isn t too surprising that it now reigns as the Ultimate Summer Movie!As always, thanks to everyone who voted, and we hope it was a fun diversion for all.

8.57.4 3月喜迎u?The resulting series have been all over the map critically, from projects that were canceled early to ones that ran for years, nearly obliterating the original film from viewers’ minds. It got us thinking about the variety of approaches that creative voices have taken when they try to sing a cinematic song on TV. The jury is still out on whether or not the futuristic vision of Snowpiercer will translate into a multi-season hit, but here are the eight approaches that have worked in the past with an example from the top tier of the film-to-TV canon for each.Make It Your Own: Fargo(Photo by ©FX)When Noah Hawley entered the world of Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1995 masterpiece, he knew a literal approach wouldn’t work (and not just because it had already been attempted in 2003 with Edie Falco as Marge Gunderson in a failed TV pilot). He decided to use the atmosphere and language of the Coen-verse to tell his own stories, and the result became an award-winning critical darling. The best singers don’t just cover a song, they make it their own, reworking it in a way that redefines it. Fargo wouldn’t exist without the work of the Coen brothers, but no one would argue that it’s a direct interpretation of their creativity either. As much as Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal stands alongside both the Thomas Harris books and films, these shows use their cinematic sources as inspirations instead of a template waiting to be copied.Make It a Prequel: Bates Motel(Photo by Sergei Bachlakov/©A&E)Sometimes the best way to adapt a cinematic property is to go back to the beginning. On paper, a young adult version of Norman Bates in contemporary times sounded like a horrible idea; it could have ended up just another teen drama like Gossip Girl, but with a little more murder. But the creators of Bates Motel deftly balanced nods to the Robert Bloch book and influential Alfred Hitchcock film throughout, culminating in a stellar final season that really tied it all together in unexpectedly moving ways. By going the prequel route, the creators had the freedom to tell a new story, even if it ultimately led to a familiar set of stairs.Make It a Corrective: Buffy the Vampire Slayer(Photo by © 20th Century Fox Film Corp.)It may have a cult following now, but writer Joss Whedon notoriously disliked the way his 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer was altered from his original intention. And so he convinced a fledgling network called The WB to give him a second shot at the character in weekly form, and the rest is TV history. It’s funny to watch the film now and see echoes of it in the series, which is darker, denser and more nuanced in ways that Whedon wasn’t allowed to be on the big screen. It’s a case in which the film probably should have been a TV series from the very beginning.Make It Fun: Ash vs. Evil Dead(Photo by Matt Klitscher/©Starz)Twenty-three years after Army of Darkness, no one expected to return to the world of Ash and the Deadites, but along came Starz’s gloriously gory Ash vs. Evil Dead, which carries in every frame an air of “can you believe we’re doing this?” Much like the Netflix reboot of Wet Hot American Summer, this show recognizes the fact that most people involved never thought they’d get the chance to make it, and so they’re going to have as much fun as possible while they can. And that fun can be infectious. Not everything needs to be Prestige TV; sometimes fans of a film just want to rekindle that fun sensibility that made movies like Evil Dead 2 and Wet Hot into cult hits in the first place.Make It Feel New: Westworld(Photo by John P. Johnson/HBO)One wonders how many people trying to decipher the current season of Westworld have any idea it’s even based on a movie. While some adaptations exist to call back to their cinematic fan bases (see previous entry), others barely acknowledge the existence of the original property. The back story of a show like Teen Wolf doesn’t depend on knowing the Michael J. Fox original, and you don’t need to have seen the 1973 Yul Brynner film (or its truly dire 1976 sequel, Futureworld) to be invested in the saga of Dolores Abernathy and the Man in Black. And that’s just the way HBO likes it.Make It Unexpected: The Girlfriend Experience(Photo by Kerry Hayes/©Starz)Sometimes the best shows are developed from films that no one involved ever thought would become a TV show (Snowpiercer might fall into this category). Steven Soderbergh’s drama about a high-priced escort didn’t exactly scream weekly drama, but the Starz adaptation found new stories to tell within this concept. Sometimes TV shows can even build on their source in ways that make them feel more creatively accomplished, such as Netflix’s Dear White People, which unexpectedly turned a good film into a great series. Going the blockbuster-to-show route can often lead to mediocre product, but shows like The Girlfriend Experience prove that there’s no specific “type” of movie that will succeed as a series.Make It the Same: What We Do in the ShadowsRyan FujitaniThe most common creative tenet of film-to-TV adaptations seems to be “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” After all, if people liked it on the big screen, they’re bound to like it on the small screen, right? While this often produces faded carbon copies of creative ideas, it also just works sometimes. The dynamic between Oscar and Felix in The Odd Couple that went from stage to screen to TV didn’t need to change. The movie Fame practically played like a pilot for the show. And the Taika Waititi hit that blended reality TV filmmaking with vampire lore was a perfect fit for the series, now on FX, without much alteration to the formula other than dividing the storytelling into bloody chunks and a change in location from New Zealand to Staten Island.Make It Emotional: Friday Night Lights(Photo by ©NBC)The main thing the best TV adaptations do is provide a recurring emotional connection that usually naturally dissipates after the credits have rolled on a film. Millions of people spent years with the families on shows like Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, two programs that are arguably on the Mt. Rushmore of film-to-TV because they treated the source material as something not just to copy but to emotionally enrich. The format allowed the creators of these shows to go deeper and make these characters a part of viewers’ families for multiple seasons. People may have first checked out FNL because of the movie, but they hung around because of their emotional connection to the show. If only more film-to-TV adaptations were this good.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them, In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. #LOTRonPrime pic.twitter.com/7TuQh7gRPD— The Lord of the Rings on Prime (@LOTRonPrime) March 7, 2019Sauron Will Be an Integral Character(Photo by Warner Bros.)At this point in LOTR history, Sauron had the ability to take corporeal form. So instead of the Great Eye of the film series, he will need to have a humanoid, often Elvish, shape. Sauron is a very active participant in the events of the Second Age, and not just in creating the Rings of Power, so he will need to be played by an on-screen actor.Early on, Sauron began building an army of Orcs, loyal Men, and other creatures. He even controlled territory in the southern region of Middle-earth before Númenóreans began establishing settlements on its shores. Skirmishes were inevitable, leading to Númenor taking up more and more of its resources in a battle against Sauron until, after hundreds of years, they raided his home in Mordor and physically took him prisoner.Of course, because Sauron was a master manipulator dedicated to perverting all Eru and the Valar established, he allowed himself to be taken back to Númenor. Once there, he began a campaign to sway the king, Ar-Pharazôn, to his side. After a number of years, Morgoth cults — with Sauron as their chief priest — operated in the open and Sauron became a key adviser to the king, promising faith in Morgoth would allow them to step foot in Aman and obtain immortality. Those still loyal to the Valar eventually decamped to Middle-earth, allowing Sauron’s scheme to come to fruition — much to the despair of the Númenóreans.Oh, also, he did all of this while leaving the One Ring back in Mordor.The Fall of Númenor is one of the great stories in Tolkien’s mythology (although many also enjoy the incomplete Second Age tale “The Mariner’s Wife”). Since it takes place over a great span of years, there is room for the series to build up characters such as Ar-Pharazôn and Elendil, the Númenórean who defied Sauron and helped establish the kingdoms of Arnor and Gondor in Middle-earth.We Will See Some Familiar Characters(Photo by Warner Bros.)Thanks to the way Tolkien mapped out the longevity of certain characters, there are a handful of well-known Lord of the Rings figures around to witness the events of the Second Age and the Fall of Númenor. Though nothing indicates any of the film series actors will reprise their roles, the Second Age setting allows room for some familiar characters.Elrond Half-elven (played by Hugo Weaving in Jackson s films), as his name implies, is a direct descendant of the First Age unions between Men and Elves who chose the fate of Elves. It makes him directly related to the kings of Númenor. During this time, he and Gil-Galad, the High Elven king in Middle-earth, had their own problems with Sauron. They saw the Númenóreans as allies — at least, until Sauron corrupted the seafarers. Nonetheless, it is possible we will see Elrond implore the Númenóreans to restore their ties with the Valar.With news of Clark s (pictured above) casting, Galadriel is certain to appear, which makes Celeborn (Marton Csokas in the films) highly likely. Both hail from the First Age, with Galadriel possessing a firsthand account of an Elvish migration from Aman to Middle-earth. Celeborn’s history is a little more imprecise, as Tolkien could never decide if he was born in Aman or Middle-earth. But both are, by human standards, impossibly old and witnesses to just about every historic event in Middle-earth up until they departed with Frodo to Aman at the end of The Lord of the Rings. As with Elrond, their concerns are local (with Sauron’s forces encroaching on their kingdom by the River Anduin), but it is always possible they will be around to sow the seeds of the Last Alliance of Men and Elves, the epic battle that could very well close out the series as a whole a few years from now.And Some New Faces As Well(Photo by Daybreak Game Company)Should the series continue beyond Númenor’s downfall, it is possible audiences could see two of the five Wizards arrive in Middle-earth. Though the Fall of Númenor left the Valar estranged from the world, they sent five Maiar spirits in the shapes of frail old men to rally the people of Middle-earth against Sauron (who survived the Fall, only losing his “fair” appearance). While most of the Wizards arrived in Middle-earth a thousand years into the Third Age, the two Blue Wizards Tolkien never really developed may have arrived during the Second Age, just after the Fall. Only mentioned in his unfinished tales, the pair quickly made their way to the East and either succumbed to Sauron’s influence or died as they failed to sway the Easterlings away from the Dark Lord. Presuming Amazon’s deal with the Tolkien estate includes unfinished material like the tale of the wizards, they would be ideal characters to utilize in the series. They could be villains, fallen heroes, or anything in between.Another character worthy of inclusion is the legendary Elf hero Glorfindel. While he “died” during the Fall of Gondolin in the First Age of Middle-earth, he eventually returned from Aman, possibly alongside the Blue Wizards, to aid both men and Elves in their struggle against Sauron during the Second Age. He makes a notable appearance early in The Lord of the Rings as he helps deliver Frodo to Rivendell. But after attending the Council of Elrond, Glorfindel drops out of the narrative until Aragorn’s wedding to Arwen. While other on-screen adaptations have substituted recurring characters for Glorfindel rather than introduce a new character to their stories — Jackson replaced him with Arwen (played by Liv Tyler), giving her an early heroic moment, while animated film director Ralph Bakshi subbed in Legolas — he is an interesting character out in the wide world during the period indicated on the map and fans would be thrilled to see him. (Orlando Bloom played Legolas in Jackson s films.)Other characters definitely alive at the time include Tom Bombadil (pictured above as portrayed in the Lord of the Rings Online video game), who himself suggests he’s the oldest consciousness in the world, and Legolas’ father Thranduil (played by Lee Pace in Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy), who has a pretty interesting story in his own right.The Devices of the Enemy(Photo by Warner Bros.)As Sauron assails all of Middle-earth in this period, he has vast resources of Orcs and Men at his disposal. But fans of the films will recognize his phantom lieutenants, the Nazgul, as a significant part of this army.If the series centers on Sauron’s time in Númenor, the nine kings of Men will already have their rings. For much of the Second Age they enjoyed the wealth and prosperity Sauron promised the rings would give them, but they were his wraiths by the time he left with Ar-Pharazôn. Presumably, they kept his affairs in order even as his capture halted the war against the people of Middle-earth.Should the series continue beyond the fall, they could become active antagonists against the likes of Elrond, Galadriel, and Elendil’s sons Isildur and Anárion — conflicts that will eventually lead to the Last Alliance.
亚博是什么平台 l actually end up seeing before Cumberbatch s own sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (3/25/2022). That title, plus the Jamie Foxx news and the recent WandaVision trailer is leading to speculation that the MCU is heading towards some sort of alternate reality, timey-wimey criss-cross of dimensions and properties (Marvel Studios has to get the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters re-introduced at some point, too, after all). In related news, Natalie Portman was also quoted this week about her return as Jane Foster in Thor: Love and Thunder (2/11/2022), which appeared to confirm previous speculation about which popular Marvel Comics storyline the movie will be (at least partly) based on.Other Top Headlines1. A DON T BREATHE SEQUEL HAS ALREADY BEEN FILMED(Photo by Ghost House Pictures)A few months after the release of the horror thriller Don t Breathe in 2016, the news first broke that the producers were quickly working on developing a sequel, but it wasn t until earlier this year that a director had signed on for it. The word at that point was that filming was scheduled to start in April, but that was also before the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted pretty much the entire film and television industry. That is, of course, in the United States (and many other places where movies are frequently filmed), but just like the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, movies (sometimes) find a way. It was just last month that we found out that Sacha Baron Cohen had secretly filmed a Borat sequel (which will debut on Amazon), and this week, Stephen Lang took to his Twitter account to reveal that he has wrapped filming of the Don t Breathe sequel in Belgrade, Serbia. Don t Breathe 2 was directed by Rodo Sayagues, who served as the screenwriter for director Fede Alvarez on both his Evil Dead remake (Fresh at 62%) and the first Don t Breathe (Certified Fresh at 88%).2. ALLISON WILLIAMS TO STAR IN BLUMHOUSE THRILLER M3GAN(Photo by ©Universal Pictures)Before 2017, Allison Williams had a few claims to fame, including being one of HBO s Girls, NBC s Peter Pan Live!, and anchorman Brian Williams daughter, but for many, she is best known as the girlfriend from Jordan Peele s blockbuster psychological horror film Get Out (Certified Fresh at 98%). That movie was produced by Blumhouse Productions, the company behind such horror and thriller franchises as The Purge, Insidious, Sinister, Happy Death Day, and Paranormal Activity, and recent hit movies like Halloween and The Invisible Man. Allison Williams is set to reunite with Blumhouse on a technology-based horror thriller film called M3GAN whose premise is similar to the recent reboot of Child s Play. Williams will play a brilliant roboticist who invents a a life-like doll programmed to be a kid’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. M3GAN will be directed by Gerard Johnstone (Housebound, Certified Fresh at 95%) from a screenplay by Akela Cooper (one of the producers of Netflix s Luke Cage), based on a story idea by James Wan (Saw, The Conjuring, Aquaman), who is also co-producing along with Jason Blum. Akela Cooper also co-wrote Wan s upcoming horror film Malignant, which was filmed pre-COVID-19 and is now awaiting its release, probably sometime in 2021.3. SANDRA OH TO STAR IN SAM RAIMI-PRODUCED HORROR FILM UMMA(Photo by Michael Tackett/©Warner Bros.)Stage 6 Films is a Sony-based production company that since 2008 has given us movies like Don t Breathe, Robot Frank, Searching, and the Insidious franchise (co-produced with Blumhouse). This week, Stage 6 made a deal with Sam Raimi s production company to acquire the rights to a supernatural horror film called Umma, with Sandra Oh attached to star (and serve as the film s executive producer). Umma is the Korean word for mother, and the story will depict Oh s character living on a farm in the U.S. with her daughter until their lives are disrupted by supernatural events following the arrival of her mother s remains from Korea. Umma will be the first film produced by Sam Raimi under a new deal with Starlight Media, whose recent productions include Crazy Rich Asians and Midway. Sandra Oh currently stars on the BBC America series Killing Eve, for which she won a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and three Emmy nominations, following ten seasons on Grey s Anatomy, for which she received five Emmy nominations. Oh s co-stars in Umma will include Fivel Stewart, MeeWha Alana Lee, Dermot Mulroney, Odeya Rush, and Tom Yi.4. BILLY CRUDUP TO PLAY BARRY ALLEN S DAD IN THE FLASH (Photo by Julio Macat/©Sony Pictures Classics)By its very nature, Justice League had a huge ensemble cast, but some of the actors were uncredited, including Billy Crudup (who played Dr. Manhattan in director Zack Snyder s Watchmen) as Henry Allen, the father of Barry Allen, A.K.A. The Flash. We can now report that Crudup will reprise that character in The Flash (11/4/2022), the long-in-development solo movie starring Ezra Miller as the Justice League super speedster. Crudup is actually returning to The Flash after previously being attached to co-star as Harry Allen (in 2015, years before Justice League came out) but then dropping out when that version of the movie was sent back to development hell. He is the third male star beside Ezra Miller to be announced for The Flash, following Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck, who will be playing different versions of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The Flash will adapt the popular Flashpoint storyline from the comics, during which the Flash attempts to prevent his mother s murder, resulting in changes to both time and reality. (The Flashpoint story was also adapted for season 3 of the the CW series The Flash ). It s not yet known if Billy Crudup s character will receive more screen time in next year s HBO Max mini-series Zack Snyder s Justice League.5. ANDY SAMBERG HEADLINES SUPERHERO STONER COMEDY SUPER HIGH(Photo by ©Paramount courtesy Everett Collection)Superhero movies and stoner comedies are some of the most popular films for certain swaths of the moviegoing audience, so it makes a certain kind of sense when the two genres intersect. With that in mind, Andy Samberg, Craig Robinson, and Common are teaming up for a superhero stoner comedy called Super High, which New Line Cinema won the rights to this week following a competive situation. Super High will be set in a world where smoking special weed gives you super powers. The Super High screenplay will be written by Adam Mansbach, the screenwriter of the 2016 Barack Obama drama Barry (Certified Fresh at 80%), and also the author of the New York Times bestselling book, Go the F*ck to Sleep, and its sequels, You Have to F*cking Eat and F*ck, Now There are Two of You (the audiobooks of which were narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, Bryan Cranston, and Larry David).6. CLINT EASTWOOD TO PRODUCE, DIRECT, AND STAR IN CRY MACHO(Photo by Keith Bernstein/Warner Bros.)When Daniel Day-Lewis announced that he was retiring from acting in 2017 after his final film Phantom Thread, he had just recently turned 60 years old. We bring that up because Clint Eastwood just announced this week that he will be starring in the next film he will direct, and he s currently 90 years old. Put another way, if Clint Eastwood had retired when he was 60 (in 1990), we never would have seen him in movies like Unforgiven, In the Line of Fire, Million Dollar Baby, or Gran Torino. The Warner Bros. movie that Clint Eastwood will be producing, directing, and starring in is an adventure drama called Cry Macho, which is an adaptation of a 1975 novel that has been in development as a screenplay since the early 1970s because author N. Richard Nash actually wrote the book after his initial attempt to sell it as a screenplay. Other actors who were previously attached to star in the film include Roy Scheider in the 1990s and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the early 2010s. In the 1980s, Eastwood himself was also in the running to star, but he decided to make The Dead Pool instead. Cry Macho will tell the story of a washed-up horse trainer who schemes to make ,000 by snatching a streetwise Mexican boy from his mother in Mexico City and delivering him to his father — and the trainer’s ex-boss — in Texas. 7. ANGELINA JOLIE AND CHRISTOPH WALTZ TO STAR IN TRAGIC ALS ROMANCE (Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)This year s awards season is obviously curtailed a bit because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but Hollywood appears to be chugging right along, with various projects that sound like they might be future awards-friendly features. That theme especially applies to Every Note Played, a romantic drama to be produced by STX Films based upon the novel of the same title by Lisa Genova. Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Alita: Battle Angel) is in talks to star in Every Note Played as a famous concert pianist who has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig s Disease, the same disease that afflicted Stephen Hawking), with Angelina Jolie also in negotiations to play his ex-wife, who assumes the role of his caregiver as his condition worsens. Every Note Played will be directed by Michael Sucsy, whose filmography includes Grey Gardens (Fresh at 88%) and The Vow (Rotten at 31%). In related news, the fantasy adventure Come Away, starring Angelina Jolie and David Oyelowo, was picked up this week by a new distribution company called Relativity Media Studio.8. CAST OF RESIDENT EVIL ORIGIN MOVIE REVEALED(Photo by Ben Rothstein/©Marvel/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)In 2002, Milla Jovovich starred in the first live-action movie adapted from the popular Resident Evil video game franchise, and the film s success led to five more sequels, even as the movies moved farther and farther from both the tone and the plotline of the actual Resident Evil video games. Jovovich and her husband, director Paul W.S. Anderson, have moved on from Resident Evil (taking on another video game franchise with Monster Hunter instead), but the Resident Evil franchise forges ahead. The reboot will start with an origin story that will depict the initial viral outbreak at the Umbrella Corporation in Raccoon City that then leads to the apocalyptic events of the video games (and presumably, future movies with some of the new cast). The reboot draws heavily from Resident Evil for its characters, including Jill Valentine (Hannah John-Kamen), Chris Redfield (Robbie Amell), Claire Redfield (Kaya Scodelario), Leon Kennedy (Avan Jogia), Albert Wesker (Tom Hopper), and William Birkin (Neal McDonough).9. ZOMBIE MOVIE DIRECTOR TAKING ON KID-FRIENDLY THOMAS FRIENDS TRAIN MOVIE (Photo by Jaap Buitendijk/©Paramount Pictures)Marc Forster directed 2013 s zombie thriller World War Z, and the 2016 South Korean zombie horror hit Train to Busan was set on a train; combine the two together and remove the zombies, and what do you get? Probably something along the lines of the next Thomas Friends movie, which Forster has, for some reason, signed on to direct. Successful directors frequently helm a variety of projects, true, but it s fun to point out that Thomas the Tank Engine will be brought to us next by the guy who did Machine Gun Preacher. Anyway, Thomas Friends will be co-produced by the toy and game company Mattel, which is also actively developing movies based on Barbie (probably starring Margot Robbie) and Barney the Dinosaur (produced by Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya).On an Apple device?

In 1908, the silent film Robin Hood and His Merry Men introduced theatergoers to the dashing rogue of English folklore who stole from the rich and gave to the poor, and since then, he has appeared in a neverending run of television shows and movies. Dozens of actors have played Robin Hood, and they’ve all brought their own distinct and varied styles (and accents) to the role. But there is one thing they have in common: They’ve all had to expertly fire arrows in movies like Robin and Marian (1976), Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991), and Robin Hood (2010), among others.With the latest Robin Hood promising copious amounts of archery action (18 arrows are fired in the first trailer!), we decided to take a look at movies featuring the character and other iconic archers to see if we could find any trends, patterns, or cool facts to drop on you. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this deep dive into the world of cinematic archery.So many arrows (Photo by Summit Entertainment)Sidenote: We’re leaving out crossbows because Robin Hood has no time for crossbows.What are the highest rated archery movies?In a merry coincidence, two Robin Hood movies are tied for first place. Robin Hood (1922) and The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) have 100% Tomatometer scores, and they established the majority of the ground rules for the cinematic portrayal of the character (split arrows, archery contests, stealing money, green hats). These classics still hold up because of their massive budgets, acrobatic set pieces, and the committed performances of Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn.Who is the most accurate Robin Hood?It turns out the Robin Hood (Cary Elwes) from Robin Hood: Men in Tights is the most accurate. Three other Robin Hoods have 100% accuracy rates (Robin Hood 1922, Robin Hood 1973, Robin and Marian 1976), but we re giving the most accurate award to Elwes because he fired the most arrows of the four (11) and is the only person who can believably fire six arrows at once. That is nothing to (A)sneeze at.Who is the most accurate archer, period?(Photo by Lionsgate courtesy Everett Collection)Move over Legolas (94%), Robin Hood (93%), Katniss Everdeen (85%), and Clint Barton (84%), Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo character has an outstanding 96% success rate throughout Rambo: First Blood Part 2 (1985) and Rambo (2008). His lone miss wasn t really a miss: In Rambo, he hits a guy in the leg and has to use another arrow to finish the job. Rambo is so accurate he fishes with arrows, which is something only a few characters like Merida from Brave and Lewis Medlock from Deliverance can claim.Which archer had the best run of accurate shots?Technically, Legolas 24-arrow hit spree in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is the most impressive run of the iconic archers included in our data set. However, he is a 2,000-year-old Elf who has had a lot of time to practice his archery skills. Thus, we’re giving Matt Damon (and his ponytail) the award for the 18 perfectly placed arrows he shot in The Great Wall. Not only did Damon defeat many ancient monsters with impenetrable skin, he s capable of wowing hundreds with his party tricks.Clint Barton (a.k.a. Hawkeye) isn t among the elite archersRyan FujitaniHawkeye’s 84% accuracy rate is impressive, considering he had to fire arrows at aliens, robots, friends, and superheroes who move very quickly and give him next to nothing to aim at (in Captain America: Civil War, Vision literally becomes intangible). Let’s hope that Avengers 4 allows Hawkeye to get his accuracy rate above 90% so he can join the super cool archery crew of John Rambo, Legolas, and Robin Hood. Also, we’d love to see what he can do against Thanos.Villains shouldn t catch arrowsSpeaking of Thanos battling Hawkeye, it s funny how cocky villains get when they ve caught an arrow. We don t understand why, because it always blows up in their faces (sometimes literally). In The Scorpion King, Blade: Trinity, and The Avengers, villains are foiled by their arrow-snatching skills. Most famously, in The Avengers, Loki is foiled by his own hubris when he catches an arrow shot by Hawkeye and smirks with joy, only to be caught off guard when the arrow explodes. We love this moment because it means Hawkeye knew exactly what would happen.If you re only going to shoot one arrow, make it countThroughout the four Hunger Games movies, Katniss Everdeen shoots 35 arrows and is accurate 85% of the time. Aside from surviving two deadly competitions, Katniss can claim she took down two enemy bombers with one arrow in Mockingjay: Part 1. This fact makes you forget that she only fired one arrow in the entire film.Best archer in a movie that shouldn t feature archery?Technically, Nicolas Cage’s character in The Weather Man is not an iconic archer. He is a weatherman who takes up archery as a hobby because it calms his nerves. However, the sight of Nicolas Cage strolling down a city street with a bow and arrow is awesome. The visual is so great we’re going to forgive him for using a crossbow in his latest gonzo masterpiece Mandy.When archery in movies gets a little too realDo you know why actor Toshiro Mifune looked so scared during the famous arrow scene in the 98% Tomatometer rated Throne of Blood? Director Akira Kurosawa had professional archers shoot REAL arrows at the actor! That’s why Mifune’s reactions seem so primal and real. Sure, he had padding in case an arrow missed, but we don’t think anything like this will ever happen again.Biggest waste of arrowsThe “100,000 arrows” scene in Hong Kong action master John Woo s Red Cliff features 100,000 arrows doing zero tactical damage during a major battle. Normally, missing 100,000 arrows would be bad enough, but imagine if the opposing army retrieved the majority of those arrows and fired them back at you. Red Cliff should be applauded for the very inventive way it chose to recycle arrows.Runner Up: 300 Xerxes orders arrows to literally block out the sun. It looks cool, but does nothing.Most creative archery moment in cinematic history(Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp.)We don’t condone using chickens in lieu of arrows. However, since Hot Shots: Part Deux is a spoof of Rambo, and we’re pretty sure the chicken lives, we had to give this scene some love. After dozens of movies in which archers used only arrows, it was a breath of fresh air to watch as Topper Harly (Charlie Sheen) misses six straight shots (longest missing streak in our data set, by the way) but manages to improvise beautifully when he realizes he’s spent all his arrows. Topper grabs an unsuspecting chicken, straightens it out, and fires it with his bow to vanquish one of his foes. He may be a terrible marksman (14% accuracy rate), but he comes through when it counts. Rambo would be proud. And confused.Movie posters love archersArchery looks awesome, which is why movie posters almost always showcase archers whenever possible. It doesn t matter if the main character only shoots one (Hanna), five (Tomb Raider 2018) or 18 (The Great Wall) arrows, the character will be on the poster with a bow in hand. Take a look at the posters below and you’ll see why marketing departments love showcasing archery: 如今重新玩了这款手游，发现游戏已经更新了一部资料片，增加了解谜的玩法，相当于重新开发了一款手游。这个思路其实很不错，因为平时挂机的时候等待时间长且无聊，玩家在等待的过程中可以切换到资料片中锻炼一下动手动脑能力。
亚博是什么平台 Irish actor Andrew Scott is arguably most recognizable to U.S. audiences for malevolent characters: classic literary villain Professor Moriarty opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in TV s Sherlock, as cruel psychiatrist Dr. Addison Bennet in Alice Through the Looking Glass, and as duplicitous government agent C in James Bond film Spectre.So seeing Scott turn up as a priest in Amazon series Fleabag understandably may result in immediate suspicion of the character. The series history of revealing unexpected core character flaws might also set viewers expectation levels to yellow ― exercise caution ― when it comes to investing in this new player on Fleabag s scene. Plus: Fleabag. It s original and audacious storytelling, Scott says of the series created and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, a star rapidly ascending with a scene-stealing turn as the voice of robot L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story and as executive producer and creator of award-winning BBC America series Killing Eve. Waller-Bridge was also tapped by Bond himself, Daniel Craig, to inject her distinctive comedic voice into the script of the upcoming film from director Cary Fukunaga.Scott this week also appeared — ranting with a gun — in the first trailer for season 5 of Netflix sci-fi anthology hit Black Mirror. We re eager to find out what delirium awaits us there, but in the meantime, we re savoring his performance in Fleabag season 2, which is reliably unexpected.The season is Certified Fresh at 100% with 43 reviews at publication and is being lauded by critics with lines like: A portrait of grief, fear, and love that s startling, painful, achingly funny, unbearably sexy, pretty much perfect, and somehow better than the first season. It is a marvel. It should not exist. (Allison Shoemaker, RogerEbert.com).We spoke to Scott about these strange, beautiful, tragic, hilarious sketches of humanity and what it was like to inhabit one of them.(Photo by Steve Schofield/Amazon Prime)Debbie Day for Rotten Tomatoes: Throughout the season, as a viewer, I think you keep asking yourself, “Is this love or is this insanity?”Scott: I think both those things can exist at the same time. (Laughs). I think a lot of the time, people s experiences of love are exactly that. I think that question, “Is this love or is this insanity?,” can nearly be applied to everything or relationship, because it is insane to go through that experience — it s insane. That s exactly it. As the Priest says in that sermon (in the series): It s this extraordinary thing, it makes you crazy, and makes you do all these things that you never imagined you would be, both good and bad. I think Phoebe s great talent is to be able to hold two things in exactly the same thing. I love the fact that it s funny and tragic at the same time. I like that the idea of being vulnerable and being powerful exists in the same scene. It s all the things it s very fluid, and I think that s why people have responded to it so much, that s what makes such great television, is that feeling of nuance, because the lack of nuance is the death of great art.(Photo by Steve Schofield/Amazon Prime)After season 1, I think viewers are hoping for some redemption for Fleabag, and at the beginning of the new season, here s this priest and ― whether you believe or not ― you may hope that she finds something to hold on to, but she chooses the same sort of destructive path.Scott: You think it s destructive?I think she makes another bad choice for herself. You want to believe in love, and you want to believe that people will choose love, but when you get involved with someone who s not really available ―Scott: Yeah.(Photo by Steve Schofield/Amazon Prime)How did you approach your character, seeing this dynamic in the scripts? What did you think of him at first when you read it?Scott: We talked about, when we first spoke about this relationship between the two of them, was how do you play love, and what should we expect from our television characters? And there s not one of us who have not made bad choices ― I e
