怪物猎人p3弓采用百度引擎3（Baidu 8）Rotten Returns: The Grudge Becomes Latest Reboot to Flounder at Box Office(Photo by Allen Fraser / © Screen Gems)Sony’s The Grudge reboot earns its place here not because it may be a big financial loser – the budget is reportedly only million – but because there were clearly bigger hopes even than the - million projections it had. Also going into this weekend it had a strong .8 million in Thursday previews. But with just .3 million, the movie s first-weekend haul ranks as the worst weekend total for a January release with previews over million. The previous low was Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’s .6 million; the second-lowest was last year’s Escape Room (.23 million). The Grudge’s number is also on the low-end of attempted franchise reboots, but still ahead of 2019’s Hellboy (.04 million), 2011’s Conan the Barbarian (.02 million), 2016’s Blair Witch (.57 million), and 2019’s Charlie’s Angels (.35 million). Those films all had final gross multiples between 1.81 and 2.17. 2019’s Child’s Play opened to .09 million and finished with just .20 million, a multiple of just 2.07. That would put The Grudge on pace for a final tally between million and million, which would be less than Rings finished with in 2017.The Top 10 and Beyond: Frozen II Becomes Biggest Animated Film Ever, Knives Out Continues Killer Run Sony did not have much luck with The Grudge this weekend but their other films are doing quite well. Jumanji: The Next Level may be million off Welcome to the Jungle’s pace after 24 days (2.22 million), but it is right behind it on the all-time December chart – 10th place in fact – at this period, well outpacing the last two Hobbit films, which finished with 5 and 8 million, respectively. All the films above The Next Level on the 24-day list grossed over 0 million. Only Titanic and The Fellowship of the Ring had grossed less at this point and went over the milestone. The Next Level’s million weekend is almost identical to Welcome to the Jungle’s fourth weekend and is the fifth-best weekend four for a December release ever, nearly million higher than even the first Lord of the Rings film.Greta Gerwig’s Little Women is hoping to just get that first 0 million and it took a solid step this week. Only one film has ever opened in December, reached million in 12 days, and failed to make it to 0 million (that would be 2008 s Valkyrie). Little Women just reached .5 million. Though its .57 million is on the lower end of the 12-day releases that grossed between - million, it is just over a week away from a likely slew of Oscar nominations that will no doubt boost its profile as one of the films to see over the next five weeks.Over on the animated front, Disney’s Frozen II continues to trend up the charts. The sequel is about to cross 0 million with another .29 million added this weekend. But more importantly, it has just crossed .32 billion, million more than the first film, which now makes it the highest-grossing animated film ever. With another million, it will pass Avengers: Age of Ultron and enter the top 10 movies of all time. Fox’s Spies in Disguise is not going to get anywhere near those numbers. What it is near are the numbers for The Adventures of Tintin, which had .47 million after 12 days following a .43 million second weekend; Spies is up to .72 million after an .08 million weekend. Tintin finished with .59 million, which would not be a great number for the 0 million production.Two of the great box office stories of the season are also still playing out. Rian Johnson’s Knives Out just crossed 0 million and is going to pass Once Upon a Time In Hollywood to become the second-highest grossing original film of the year. (Jordan Peele’s Us is number 1.) A total of 0 million is not out of the realm of possibility and 0 million globally is inevitable. Also doing great is Josh and Benny Safdie’s Uncut Gems. The Adam Sandler thriller grossed .4 million in its second week of wide release for a total of .48 million. It is behind just Lady Bird (.95 million) and Hereditary (.06 million) on A24’s all-time chart and soon it will become their highest-grossing film in their seven-year history.This Time Last Year: Aquaman Rules For a Third Weekend(Photo by © Warner Bros.)James Wan’s Aquaman led the way for a third straight week with million, driving its total to over 0 million. As with this week, a horror film was the sole new release to kick off the New Year and a new franchise may have been born with Escape Room: It finished second with .23 million and its sequel is due out this August. The top five was rounded out by Mary Poppins Returns (.86 million), Bumblebee (.20 million), and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (.12 million). The top 10 films grossed a total of 9 million, which was the best three-day weekend total of 2019 for the next eight weeks until Captain Marvel gave the box office a boost on March 8. The films averaged 66.4% on the Tomatometer. This year’s top 10 grossed an estimated 9.68 million and averaged 66.6% with critics.On the Vine: One-Shot WWI Thriller 1917 Goes Wide and Could Unseat SkywalkerA loaded January weekend is likely to be led by one of two expansions. Sam Mendes’ 1917 has been doing solid business in limited release and should take the number 1 spot from not just its new challengers but from Star Wars as well. Just Mercy is also headed into wide release and may draw some pre-awards interest. Brand-new 2020 releases include the sci-fi horror film, Underwater, with Kristen Stewart, which is hoping to draw more interest than Charlie’s Angels did. Then there is the comedy, Like a Boss, with Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne, and Salma Hayek. Finally, 2019 layover, The Informer, with Joel Kinnaman will get a limited release after moving around on the schedule.The Full Top 10: January 3-5Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) 52% – .74 million (0.77 million total)Jumanji: The Next Level (2019) 71% – .5 million (6.21 million total)Little Women (2019) 95% – .56 million (.02 million total)The Grudge (2020) 21% – .3 million (.3 million total)Frozen II (2019) 78% – .29 million (9.88 million total)Spies in Disguise (2019) 77% – .08 million (.73 million total)Knives Out (2019) 97% – .03 million (0.26 million total)Uncut Gems (2019) 91% – .83 million (.81 million total)Bombshell (2019) 68% – .08 million (.67 million total)Cats (2019) 20% – .6 million (.69 million total)

Today s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news, covering titles such as Candyman, Pinocchio, Spider-Women, and Venom 2.This WEEK S TOP STORYGUILLERMO DEL TORO REVEALS OVER 15 MOVIES READY TO GO(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Long before Guillermo del Toro won the Best Picture Oscar this year for The Shape of Water, it was well known that he had a long list of shelved movies in his past. That little golden man on his mantle has changed a lot for GDT, including his new deal at Fox Searchlight that basically set him up with his own mini-studio for horror/genre films. This week, Guillermo del Toro took to Twitter to list over 15 unproduced screenplays that he has completely finished, which are basically ready to go projects for any studio that wants to work with him on them. The most common theme to the list is remakes, including The Count of Monte Cristo, Fantastic Voyage, The Haunted Mansion (which is Disney s), Nightmare Alley, The Witches, and Beauty and the Beast (with Emma Watson, who eventually starred in Disney s remake instead). There s also the spooky DC Comics super team Justice League Dark (featuring Constantine and Swamp Thing), adaptations of the novels Drood and List of 7, and H.P. Lovecraft s At the Mountains of Madness (which infamously almost got made with Tom Cruise, at one point). Other intriguing titles include The Buried Giant, The Coffin, Mephisto s Bridge, and Superstitious. One of them is just called Secret Project (Untitled), which might be especially interesting since, at one point, The Shape of Water was also basically known as Secret Project (Untitled). Probably the least likely of these projects to ever actually happen are Pacific Rim 2 (since it was replaced by Pacific Rim: Uprising) and a pilot episode for a once-planned Hulk TV show reboot. So, will any studios now step up to any of these?Fresh Developments1. SPIDER-VERSE SEQUEL AND SPINOFF ALREADY PLANNED(Photo by Sony Pictures)Sony s animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is still two weeks away from release, but it also already has a 100% Tomatometer from 49 reviews to date. That has to be part of the reason that Sony has announced early development has started on both a direct sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and a spinoff focusing on Spider-Women. That spinoff will focus on three generations of female superheroes with spider powers, with Spider-Gwen from the first movie likely to be one of the three. Other possibilities might include Jessica Drew (the original Spider-Woman), Madame Web, Arachne, Araña, and Spider-Girl. (To make things confusing, there have been three Spider-Women, two Madame Webs, and two Spider-Girls.) These two animated films join a growing slate of Marvel movies at Sony that also includes Venom 2, Morbius (AKA The Living Vampire), Black Cat, Silver Sable, Kraven the Hunter, Jackpot, Nightwatch, and Silk.2. TOM HANKS MAY PLAY GEPPETTO IN DISNEY S PINOCCHIO REMAKE (Photo by Jaap Buitendijk/Walt Disney Studios)2019 is going to be a big year for Disney s remakes of their animated features, with Dumbo (3/29/19), Aladdin (5/24/19), and The Lion King (7/19/19) all scheduled for release. Then, in 2020, we re also going to get Mulan (3/27/20), Maleficent II (5/29/20), and possibly another (Disney has a few untitled movies on their 2020 schedule right now). The studio shows no signs of slowing down, and this week, we received our first casting news for their Pinocchio remake. Toy Story and Saving Mr. Banks star Tom Hanks is now in talks with Disney to play the toymaker Geppetto for director Paul King, whose Paddington 2 is still Certified Fresh at an impressive 100% on the Tomatometer. In related news, Tim Allen (AKA Buzz Lightyear) recently revealed another new detail about next year s Toy Story 4 (6/21/19) while on The Tonight Show, disclosing that Keanu Reeves will be joining the Toy Story franchise as a character that sounds too much like Buzz Lightyear. The other major sequel that Keanu Reeves has coming out next year is John Wick: Chapter 3 (5/3/2019).3. RITA MORENO RETURNING IN SPIELBERG S REMAKE OF WEST SIDE STORYWhen filmmakers remake or sequelize classic films, they frequently cast one of the original stars (Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins Returns is a perfect example of that). For his remake of the 10-time Academy Award-winning 1961 musical West Side Story, Steven Spielberg is following suit. EGOT winner Rita Moreno played Anita in the original West Side Story, and she is now set to co-star in Spielberg s remake of the film. Moreno s character will be named Valentina, a reimagined version of the corner store owner named Doc (played in the original film by Ned Glass). Moreno is the second new cast member following the casting of Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) last month as Tony. It is not yet known if Twin Peaks co-stars (and the original s two male leads) Richard Beymer and Russ Tamblyn will also be cast in the West Side Story remake (Natalie Wood, who played Maria in the original, died in 1981).4. JORDAN PEELE PRODUCING CANDYMAN REMAKE FOR 2020 (Photo by TriStar Pictures)In September, we first heard that Get Out director Jordan Peele was producing a remake of the 1992 horror film Candyman. Just two months later, the Candyman remake already has a director, a studio, and a release date. MGM has kind of made remakes their thing, with recent films like Ben-Hur, The Magnificent Seven, Death Wish, Tomb Raider, Overboard, and A Star is Born. The Candyman remake will be directed by Nia DaCosta, who made her debut with the indie modern Western Little Woods (currently Fresh at 100%). MGM and Universal Pictures have scheduled Candyman for release on June 12, 2020, which puts it a week after Wonder Woman 1984 and the week before a secret Pixar/Disney film.5. DC COMICS MOVES FORWARD WITH BLUE BEETLE SOLO MOVIE(Photo by DC Comics)Since 1939, there have been three iterations of the DC Comics superhero called Blue Beetle, starting with this one, after which, for the longest run, there was Justice League member Ted Kord (best known, probably, for teaming up with Booster Gold). The first Blue Beetle was sort of like Shazam, and the second was similar in some ways to Batman, but starting in 2006, the third Blue Beetle had a symbiote that makes him sort of like Venom. That Blue Beetle is a young hero named Jaime Reyes, and this week, Warner Bros revealed their plans to make Blue Beetle the first stand-alone title to feature a Latino lead. (It should be noted that the star of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is Miles Morales, whose mom is Puerto Rican.) Blue Beetle will be written by Mexican-born screenwriter Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer, who also wrote the upcoming remake of Scarface.6. VIOLA DAVIS BRINGING THE FIGHTING SHIRLEY CHISHOLM TO AMAZON (AND THEATERS) Although Netflix is probably the most prolific streaming service, it was actually Amazon Studios that made history in 2017 when Manchester by the Sea made it the first streaming service to be nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award. Earlier this week, the news broke that Viola Davis JuVee Productions had set up a new deal at Amazon Studios, and just three days later, we learned what their first project will be. Confirming Amazon s continued interest in producing the sorts of films that can compete for major awards, Davis has set up the political biopic The Fighting Shirley Chisholm. In 1972, U.S. Representative Shirley Chisholm made history twice as both the first African American (of either major party) and the first female Democrat to become an official candidate for President of the United States. The Fighting Shirley Chisholm will be directed by Maggie Betts (Novitiate), working from a screenplay by Adam Countee (of TV s Community, Silicon Valley, and The Mindy Project).7. DONALD GLOVER, RIHANNA, AND LETITIA WRIGHT HEADED FOR GUAVA ISLAND(Photo by Guy D'Alema/FX)This week, the first teaser trailer for next summer s The Lion King remake broke records for Disney, but the movie s star, Donald Glover, is also working on another movie for 2019 as well. Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino), Rihanna, and Letitia Wright (Shuri from Black Panther) reportedly went to Cuba this August to film a secret movie that was revealed this week to be called Guava Island. The first teaser trailer doesn t really reveal anything else about the project, except that it s a Childish Gambino movie directed by frequent Glover collaborator Hiro Murai, who also directed episodes of Atlanta and several Childish Gambino music videos, including This is America.8. KINGSMAN PREQUEL ATTRACTS IMPRESSIVE CAST(Photo by Giles Keyte/20th Century Fox Film Corp.)When Kingsman: The Secret Service was released in 2015, it was Certified Fresh at 75% on the Tomatometer. Last year s sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, however, did considerably poorer, scoring just 52%. With that in mind, we re tempted to call this week s news Rotten, except that it s, well, kind of cool. First, it s sounding like there will actually be two Kingsman movies filming in 2019: a prequel and a proper Kingsman 3. The prequel is the one that sparked the biggest headlines, as director Matthew Vaughn has reportedly cast (or is negotiating to cast) Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War), Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones), Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-Man), and Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort from the Harry Potter franchise). The Kingsman prequel will reportedly be a period drama about the actual tailor shop that serves as a front for the secret British spy agency.怪物猎人p3弓《天谕》之前作为端游，一直都是网易MMO领域的强力IP之一，如今随着玩家逐渐向手机端靠拢，《天谕》也转型到了手游，并且在经历了一年之久的内测优化后于近日成功公测。

Fan Favorite TV Series 2020We got a ton of incredible television in 2020, which arguably helped make the year of self-quarantine a whole lot easier for some of us. But despite the pop culture ubiquity of titles like Tiger King,The Last Dance, The Queen s Gambit, and Bridgerton, we were treated to possibly the biggest surprise in any of the GTA categories this year. Who knew there were so many dedicated fans of Netflix s musical comedy series Julie and the Phantoms?Those fans showed up early and often to ensure that no other show on the list would stand a chance, so everyone else was basically fighting for second place. That said, the community around the German mystery series Dark also came out in force, propelling it to a second-place finish, followed by some familiar titles in The Mandalorian, The Boys, and Better Call Saul, as well as the aforementioned Bridgerton and The Queen s Gambit.The order below reflects the number of total votes cast for each TV show by users in a poll that ran on RT from March 10 to April 13.« Previous Category Next Category »

7.18.6 2月喜迎Netflix made huge strides in the romantic comedy game this year, with one of the most memorable entries being Lana Condor and Centineo’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. The role of Peter could have easily been the “cute and charming guy that’s been there all along” of many films past, but the springy script and Centineo’s bright-eyed performance make it one of the most swoon-worthy and surprising of the genre. Plus, it s all the more fun to watch his and Condor’s publicity tour for the movie, an adorable act that they should definitely take on the road.Other Roles: Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Jamey), The Fosters (Jesus)Cynthia Erivo — Widows (2018) 91%, Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) 74%(Photo by Merrick Morton/20th Century Fox)Erivo’s role in Widows as Belle, a scrappy, intelligent single mom, helped me research my way into knowing more about her accomplishments on Broadway (acknowledged by a 2016 Tony win). One of my few criticisms about the film was that it left me pining for more Erivo. I got my wish when Bad Times at the El Royale was released, and Erivo’s singing and double-crossing as Darlene was center stage and filled my tank, her sharp, complicated, grounded work in the film helping anchor a bonkers story. Hopefully my tank will remain full enough to coast into 2019, when she plays Harriet Tubman in Harriet.Henry Golding — Crazy Rich Asians (2018) 90%, A Simple Favor (2018) 84%(Photo by Sanja Bucko/Warner Bros.)Golding plays either the husband or the husband-to-be in both films, but he’s so much more than just a handsome accessory on women’s arms. Coming from the world of TV, hosting everything from variety shows to documentaries, Golding knows how to connect with audiences and pull them right in to whatever he’s inviting them to watch. As Nick, the son of an insanely wealthy family in Crazy Rich Asians, he deftly navigates between the two women at odds in his life. In A Simple Favor, his intriguing, secretive Sean heavily contributes to a story shrouded in mystery.Geraldine Viswanathan — Blockers (2018) 84%, The Package (2018) 42%(Photo by Quantrell D. Colbert/Universal Pictures)Both of these films are part of the modern wave of coming of age films, and Viswanathan represents everything they’re doing right. In Blockers as Kayla, the daughter of John Cena, she has the cunning and sex drive to rival that of any of the famous male cinematic horn dogs to come before her. Her turn as Becky in The Package is in the same neighborhood — she’s crush-worthy, but more than just eye candy for the main character. She’s persistent, inventive, and hilarious. With actresses like her seeing this kind of success early on in these kind of genre-bending films, it bodes well for the future of Hollywood.Other Roles: Nippers of Dead Bird Bay, EMO the Musical (Jamali)Isabela Moner — Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) 62%, Instant Family (2018) 81%(Photo by Richard Foreman Jr./Columbia Pictures)When your primary activity is wandering around a desert as a hostage or getting adopted by strangers, it could be easy to be a passenger in someone else’s journey. But when you’re as charismatic and interesting as Isabela Moner, you don’t need to worry. Both Isabel in Soldado and Lizzy in Instant Family are headstrong girls who stand 20 feet tall and hold their own against all the veterans alongside them. When you add in perfect amounts of vulnerability and toughness, you’ve got an actress worthy of Dora the Explorer, which is a movie I’m actually excited for now.Other Roles: The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (Heather), Transformers: The Last Knight (Izabella)Brian Tyree Henry — Widows (2018) 91%, If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) 95%, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) 97%(Photo by FX)Henry is in eight projects this year alone; it’s impossible to ignore him at this point. While it’s hard to imagine him having a better year in terms of volume, if his current incredible work is any indication, he’s only going to get better and better as time goes on. Don’t sleep on this man. From his role as a corrupt politician in Widows to an ex-con in Beale Street, Henry can do anything believably, which means lots more opportunities to shatter audience’s expectations and bring new things to whatever form he chooses to participate in.Other Roles: Atlanta (Alfred), White Boy Rick (Detective Jackson), Hotel Artemis (Honolulu), Family (Pete), Irreplaceable You (Benji), Vice Principals (Tavis Brown), Crown Heights (Clayton “Massup” Benton)
Natalia Tena (Harry Potter franchise, Game of Thrones) and newcomer Sen Mitsuji star in a tense moment of shoot-the-impostor from YouTube Premium s new original series Origin. The sci-fi thriller, about a group of passengers fighting for survival on a spacecraft headed for another planet, also stars Harry Potter alum Tom Felton.Origin is created, written and executive produced by Mika Watkins (Troy: Fall of a City).Release date: All 10 episodes of Origin debut on YouTube Premium on November 14.
After decades of failed attempts and unsuccessful efforts, Frank Herbert’s Dune has been adapted into one of the most anticipated movies of the year — if not millennia. Does Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) finally do the classic science fiction novel(s) justice? The first reviews of his star-studded and visually epic new movie, also known as Dune: Part One, answer mostly in the affirmative. However, there’s a fairly uniform disappointment in how it ends without an ending.Here’s what critics are saying about Dune:Is this the Dune we ve always wanted? “Denis Villeneuve’s movie is the film interpretation that fans have been waiting to see for decades.” Eric Eisenberg, Cinema Blend“For science fiction devotees, especially those who have long-worshipped Frank Herbert’s dense tome…Villeneuve’s Dune is the adaptation you always dreamed of.” Ben Travis, Empire Magazine“[It] honors the source material in the most satisfying way possible. Dune 2021 is a modern-day work of art.” Jimmy O, JoBlo s Movie Emporium“The missing link bridging the multiplex and the arthouse… Good heavens, what a film.” Xan Brooks, Guardian“For all its amazing imagery and A-list stars and very cool interpretations of the nerdier aspects of Herbert’s book, this version of Dune doesn’t fully coalesce.” Scott Collura, IGNWill it make us forget about David Lynch s version?“His Dune is the opposite of Lynch’s, methodical and cerebral, set against pastels and smoke and long stretches of moodiness.” Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411“Denis Villeneuve hasn’t succeeded where the likes of David Lynch and Alejandro Jodorowsky have already failed, [but] his Dune is at least uniquely dispiriting.” David Ehrlich, IndieWire“I’ll always love Lynch’s Dune, a severely compromised dream-work that (not surprising given Lynch’s own inclination) had little use for Herbert’s messaging. But Villeneuve’s movie is Dune.” Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com(Photo by Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures)Is it a satisfying adaptation?“This first chapter explores a very complex and detailed story with clarity and style. More importantly, it does so without sacrificing the impressive detail of Frank Herbert’s original vision.” Jimmy O, JoBlo s Movie Emporium“Denis Villeneuve and his collaborators have cracked the code with their approach… extraordinary in its ability to directly translate the source material across mediums without compromise.” Eric Eisenberg, Cinema Blend“A more significant casualty is the book’s layered interiority, its skill at turning unspoken perceptions and motives into drama; the writers have managed this material without mastering it.” Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times“If anything falls short of Herbert s particular vision it s the movie s sandworms.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment WeeklyIs it OK if you haven t read the book?“Thankfully, Dune isn’t particularly hard to follow.” Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist“Though there’s plenty to establish, Villeneuve makes surprisingly light work of it all… Dune is never as formidable as it threatens to be.” Ben Travis, Empire Magazine“The script does a good job with exposition without making it seem like EXPOSITION… but by the same token, there may not be any reason for you to be interested in Dune if you’re not a science-fiction-movie person anyway.” Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com“It’s not a film that requires any familiarity with the source material… Stretches in the early parts of Dune are a layman’s terms guide to Herbert’s incredibly intricate and uniquely realized universe.” Adam Solomons, AwardsWatch“If you come in not knowing the difference between a Holtzman shield and a hole in the floor, it s a longer walk.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly“We don’t really learn much about individual characters in the film, making it hard to grasp or care about the stakes of the story.” Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair(Photo by Chiabella James/©Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)How is Denis Villeneuve as director?“Villeneuve’s true talent is less in the staging of violence than in the queasy anticipation of it… That gift serves him well enough in Dune.” Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times“Those who find Villeneuve to be a self-serious, humorless, and pretentious bore likely won’t be changing their minds anytime soon after Dune, but that just might be their loss.” Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist“To say I have not admired Villeneuve’s prior films is something of an understatement. But I can’t deny that he’s made a more-than-satisfactory movie of the book.” Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com“The unforgiving starkness will unsettle even some of Villeneuve’s greatest fans.” Donald Clarke, Irish Times“For all of Villeneuve’s awe-inducing vision, he loses sight of why Frank Herbert’s foundational sci-fi opus is worthy of this epic spectacle in the first place.” David Ehrlich, IndieWire“He’s an overloader, and only the keenest and most urgent of scripts can survive beneath that weight. Dune, unfortunately, is not one of those.” Richard Lawson, Vanity FairHow does it compare to his other work?“It’s an arthouse blockbuster in the vein of his Blade Runner 2049, but even less concerned with commercial appeal, which is admirably bold.” Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist“Much like the haunting Blade Runner 2049, the director has taken the time to explore numerous characters without sacrificing the main story and themes.” Jimmy O, JoBlo s Movie Emporium“Like Blade Runner 2049 and especially Arrival, Dune is another unusually philosophical speculative fiction that ponders the difficulties of language and coexistence.” Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times“If you loved Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, then Dune is perhaps Denis Villeneuve at his Villeneuviest.” Richard Trenholm, CNET(Photo by Chiabella James/©Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)Is it reminiscent of anything else?“Think of it as Game of Thrones in space or Star Wars if it never got off Tatooine.” Steve Pond, The Wrap“Impressively ambitious in scale, like Villeneuve mashing up the worlds of Star Wars and Game of Thrones.” Brian Truitt, USA Today“Arguably [many of its elements are] all things that Star Wars features too, but just much more dense, sophisticated, and less child-like.” Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist“Dune feels most reminiscent of The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring.” Ben Travis, Empire Magazine“Much like the semi-recent classic Peter Jackson’s The Fellowship of the Rings in the LOTR trilogy, this is only the beginning of the story… [and] Denis Villeneuve has created one of the best fantasy feature since Peter Jackson’s journey into Middle Earth.” Jimmy O, JoBlo s Movie Emporium“Historical comparisons are of no use. None of us has been anywhere like this before. They can put that on the poster.” Donald Clarke, Irish Times“It sets a new standard for modern sci-fi epics.” Germain Lussier, io9.comIs there enough action for mainstream audiences?“Dune is consistently gripping and plot driven.” Adam Solomons, AwardsWatch“Even though it may be a slow burn, the action set pieces do not disappoint, neither does the filmmaker sacrifice the subtle themes and ideas explored throughout.” Jimmy O, JoBlo s Movie Emporium“The pacing is perfect. Villeneuve makes you wait just long enough, so when the action moves to Arrakis you’re just as eager to venture into the desert as Paul.” Ben Travis, Empire Magazine“This version of Dune sometimes feels as if it aims to impress you more than entertain you… but it’s also a formidable cinematic accomplishment.” Steve Pond, The Wrap“It feels like a drag in its back half.” Scott Collura, IGN(Photo by Chiabella James/©Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.)How are the visuals?“Cinematographer Grieg Fraser has outdone himself from frame to frame, set piece to set piece, creating jaw dropping pieces of art that are impressionistic, sensational, and other worldly.” Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411“It’s all a feast for the eyes. The visuals are mind-blowing.” Jimmy O, JoBlo s Movie Emporium“Aesthetically, Dune is pretty damn monumental and enveloping, and for audiences that potentially may find the plot confusing, the film still works on a deeply experiential, visceral level.” Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist“The sense of scale conjured up is, from moment to moment, frequently astonishing.” Ben Travis, Empire Magazine“Dune looks great, but outside of the fantastical design, the muted palette borders on drab.” Richard Trenholm, CNETAnd how does it sound?“Dune [is] a symphony for the ears as well as a feast for the eyes.” Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times“Dune is also an auditory journey, not only featuring enveloping sound editing, but one of the best scores Hans Zimmer has ever composed.” Eric Eisenberg, Cinema Blend“The visual vastness is matched by a Hans Zimmer score that is, to use a technical term, full-Zimmer.” Ben Travis, Empire Magazine“Composer Hans Zimmer inspires great awe with a booming score, but not one BRAAAM in sight, thankfully.” Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist What is the overall experience like?“As a visual and visceral experience, Dune is undeniably transporting. As a spectacle for the mind and heart, it never quite leaves Earth behind.” Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times“Dune is certainly capable of transporting us to its alien landscapes via its many technical achievements… There is no detail spared in immersing us in this fantastical world.” Scott Collura, IGN“You feel like you’re looking into a window across space and time… The line between fiction and reality fades from your mind, and it’s breathtaking.” Eric Eisenberg, Cinema Blend“Villeneuve’s Dune is the sandworm exploding out from the darkness below. It is a film of such literal and emotional largeness that it overwhelms the senses.” Clarisse Loughrey, Independent(Photo by Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures)How are the performances?“Chalamet confirms on a grand scale what arthouse audiences have long known about his charisma.” David Crow, Den of Geek“Timothee Chalamet once again gives another exceptional performance.” Jimmy O, JoBlo s Movie Emporium“Among the uniformly excellent performances, Timothée Chalamet holds his own in his first blockbuster leading role.” Ben Travis, Empire Magazine“Chalamet, playing it earnestly and effectively, is perfectly cast here, and both Ferguson and Isaac are excellent, as is Skarsgård.” Pete Hammond, Deadline“Everyone flawlessly gets at the core of who they are playing. Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson and Oscar Isaac are the triumvirate that lead the cast, and they are all phenomenal.” Eric Eisenberg, Cinema Blend“Momoa, in particular, bringing a swagger and excitement beyond anything we’ve seen from him before.” Germain Lussier, io9.com“The actors here all give good, serious performances, but in a sense it isn’t an actor’s film, because they are playing archetypes.” Catherine Bray, Film of the Week“No one has much time to distinguish themselves, all functioning as mere fleshy cogs in Villeneuve’s churning machine.” Richard Lawson, Vanity FairIs it a fun movie?“The script benefits from injecting occasional bits of humor into the universe-shaping events of the film.” Scott Collura, IGN“Dune is so aesthetically rich and monolithic that a few brief, misguided stabs at Marvel-style humor early on feel almost like blasphemy.” Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly“If what you love most about Marvel is the quips, you might not like Dune very much…it is deadly serious…a relief I hadn’t realized I needed.” Catherine Bray, Film of the Week“While Villeneuve has been and likely remains one of the most humorless filmmakers alive, the novel wasn’t a barrel of laughs either, and it’s salutary that Villeneuve honored the scant light notes in the script.” Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com“Dune lumbers with such aloof, uninviting self-seriousness that it’s hard to love, hard to even celebrate as an assured piece of tentpole authorship.” Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair“My only grievance is that hardly anyone in this film ever smiles…everyone in Dune is grimly serious. You kind of wish someone would shake Paul’s hand with a joy buzzer.” Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411(Photo by Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures)Does it feel unfinished?“The film is ultimately a long and overwrought prologue — a prelude to action rather than its own autonomous story.” Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair“The real meal doesn’t really begin until Part Two, and that’s probably one of the minor disappointments of its inconclusive finale.” Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist“It does wind up feeling incomplete… like the serving of a decadent and delicious appetizer that comes out while the epic entrée to come is still braising in the kitchen.” Eric Eisenberg, Cinema Blend“It feels so completely sure of itself and so legitimately stunning, that it’s a huge shame that the next chapter is in fact subject to the whims of the marketplace… Surely, there has to be more.” Catherine Bray, Film of the Week“To be left dangling without Dune: Part Two would be a particular heartbreak. Here’s hoping we won’t only be seeing it in our dreams.” Ben Travis, Empire MagazineIs it difficult to assess this first chapter on its own?“It will require reassessment when the rest of the director’s vision is revealed – and if there is a movie god, we’ll see that happen sooner rather than later.” Eric Eisenberg, Cinema Blend“What could happen in the future isn’t something you can think about when critiquing a movie though. There’s this movie, this story, and if it doesn’t work on its own, that would problem. It’s not a problem here.” Germain Lussier, io9.comDune is in theaters and on HBO Max on October 22, 2021.
With the success of series like The Terror, The Haunting of Hill House, and American Horror Story, television has never been a better medium for creators interested in telling spooky stories on a regular basis. The latest entry into the genre is Creepshow, a TV anthology version of the Stephen King/George A. Romero horror film that debuts today on genre-focused streaming service Shudder.Spearheaded by The Walking Dead boss Greg Nicotero, the series pays tribute to its roots by telling frightening stories of many ilks (gory, suspenseful, silly, unsettling). The first episode features the installments “Gray Matter,” based on the King story of the same name about an alcoholic whose booze of choice might affect him in more nefarious ways, and “The House of the Head,” about a girl who discovers a killer severed head in her dollhouse.Earlier this year, Rotten Tomatoes visited the series’ Atlanta set, where we walked through blood-soaked sets, saw creatures being made, and saw a werewolf decapitate a Nazi. Here are six things we learned about the show while we were there.1. It’s in good hands with superfan Greg Nicotero(Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)The Walking Dead boss is a lifelong horror fan who got his start working on special effects makeup with Romero and Creepshow’s effects mastermind Tom Savini on Romero s Day of the Dead.With this Creepshow reboot, “I want to embrace the spirit of the original movie,” Nicotero said from his windowless office in an Atlanta production facility. “I’m not rebooting anything. It’s not like, ‘Oh we’re going to upgrade it and retell it.’ It’s really like you’re picking up another issue of Creepshow, and these are the stories.”The stories include works from King, one from King’s son, Joe Hill, plus more adaptations of existing stories and a few original tales. Nicotero was so dedicated to the project that he began working on it during The Walking Dead, taking just a week off before flying back to Atlanta to begin pre-production on Creepshow.2. The series was filmed in an uber-short time frame(Photo by Shudder)Each of the six episodes contains two stories, and each story has just three and a half days to film.“You can’t stop filming for 12 hours. You can’t eat, you can’t go to the bathroom, and you’ve just got to keep filming and go crazy,” Nicotero said in a short break while filming the final two installments.On one stage, special effects experts prepared a dummy for its impending decapitation — the fake blood spurting everywhere meant they had just one take (or risk spending hours cleaning up the blood only to set it all up again. On the other, the production team used a forklift to place a massive monster they created on the set of the story they’d begin filming the next day.Originally, Nicotero wanted to film even more stories, but with a packed production schedule spanning from the beginning of January through the end of March, it wasn’t enough time to fully realize that many tales.“I was pretty greedy at first. I was like, ‘We should do three stories per episode, and each story should be like 17 minutes,’ and then we got into production and I was like, ‘What the f was I thinking? We should do two, ” he admitted.3. For practical effects, Nicotero brought in the experts.(Photo by Shudder)Special effects guru Savini worked closely with Romero on many of his films, including the original Creepshow. So it was only natural Nicotero would hire him to helm a story of his own (Joe Hill’s “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain”).“It’s 98 percent practical effects — all the creature work, all the makeup, the werewolves, the puppets,” Nicotero said.Evidence of that mandate is strewn about the production spaces that once held Gabrielle Union’s BET drama Being Mary Jane — cardboard boxes loaded with fake animal carcasses are piled next to busts of various creatures.
