In 2018, in the lead-up to the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Rotten Tomatoes sat down for an extended interview with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, in which he gave us a complete oral history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first three phases. This week, as Marvel gets ready to release its first film into theaters in more than two years – the last being the Phase Three-capping Spider-Man: Far From Home – Feige again sat down with us for an exclusive extended chat, this time to reflect on the end of the Infinity Saga, the studio’s move into streaming limited series, and to preview some of the most anticipated titles coming up in a jam-packed Phase Four, from Chloé Zhao’s Eternals to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.Recommended: Kevin Feige s Oral History of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Phases 1-3At lot had changed since we last spoke. For starters, the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on Marvel Studios’ release calendar (Black Widow was delayed more than a year) and its shooting schedule; production shutdowns meant that Falcon and the Winter Soldier, once slated to be the studio s first Disney+ series, ultimately had to follow WandaVision. Speaking of series: Disney launched its streaming service, Disney+, in November 2019, and with it came those two Marvel Studios series, plus Loki, currently airing, along with a dual same-day streaming/theatrical release of movies like Black Widow that will test the superhero giant’s box office might.(Photo by ©Marvel Studios)Then there was the corporate stand-off, in mid-2019, between Sony and Disney over deal terms related to their partnership on the Tom Holland Spider-Man movies, an impasse that threatened to pull Holland’s Peter Parker from the MCU together. We asked Feige about that period, one which he describes as “an emotional few months,” as well as other major moments for the studio over the last several years, including the recent acknowledgment that Loki Laufeyson is bisexual – and thus the first openly LGBTQ+ Marvel MCU character we’ve seen on screen – as well as the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman and what that means for the future of Black Panther.Plus, Feige gives us rare insights into what we can expect from Phase Four’s big newcomers, including Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Eternals. But, in this first part of our interview, he takes us up to Black Widow, beginning with a look back at a moment from Phase Three that still brings him chills – and one which gave millions of fans a sense of hope as the world was mired in lockdown. The Viral Clip of Audiences Reacting to Endgame “Took On New Meaning, Even For Me Personally, During Lockdown Last Year” Relatively early on in the pandemic, that clip from inside with audiences at Avengers: Endgame’s first theatrical run, went viral – with the people cheering for the on your left moment and when the portals opened up. It was wonderful because it reminded me of Endgame and the year before – I think I was in one of those theaters where somebody had recorded that – so that feeling was very special. But coming in the midst of this pandemic, when we had spent so much time in our homes, not surrounded by other people, it was a wonderful reminder of community and of a shared experience. We’ve all shared the pandemic experience apart, but that clip did take on, I think, new meaning, even for me personally, during the lockdown last year – not just a memory of the year before and the wonderful achievement that the Russo brothers and our entire cast and everybody at Marvel Studios pulled off with Endgame, but a promise of the future and of being in a theater again and having a shared experience like that someday in the future. I think it gave us hope. pic.twitter.com/gPn8pKchYs https://t.co/PPRp5G6CIA Chip Skylark (@mizzymicole) August 29, 2020“Seeing where people laugh or seeing where people get very quiet and still [in a theater], or where people cheer if we should be so lucky… there’s nothing better.” I’ve sat in theater a number of times with [Black Widow] – some pre-pandemic and some post, tomorrow being the first time that I ll be in a full theater watching the final version of the film with an audience. [Editor’s Note: Feige attended a fan screening in late June the day after this interview was conducted.] But every time we make a film, it is with the expectation of delivering on a promise of an experience, to be experienced together in a theater. And seeing where people laugh or seeing where people get very quiet and still, or where people cheer if we should be so lucky, in moments in the movie… We spend years and years trying to work up to those moments, and being in a theater and seeing it and seeing it happen, there s nothing better. Every decision we make is from the point of view of sitting in a crowded theater experiencing the story. (Photo by Marvel Studios/Disney+)“When Bob Iger told us his desire for us to produce shows for Disney+, it gave us a new avenue, frankly, to do something we hadn t been considering before: a deep dive on characters who deserve a deep dive but hadn t had the chance yet.” What you see now in Phase Four is still the combination of work of five or six years, in some cases. In the case of Shang-Chi, 10 or 15 years in the past – we have been working towards a Shang-Chi movie for many, many years; towards the Black Widow movie, as everybody knows, for many, many years. So those were always set as films. When Bob Iger told us about Disney+ and about his desire for us to produce shows for Disney+, it gave us a new avenue, frankly, to do something we hadn t been considering before, which was really doing a deep dive on characters who deserve a deep dive but hadn t had the chance yet. It took us four or five films to tell even a tiny story of Wanda Maximoff and The Vision.Same thing with Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. It s a testament to those characters, and particularly to those actors, that the audience fell in love with them in what really amounted to a relatively short amount of screen time and a handful of films. But we knew they were being underutilized, both the characters and the actors, and we really wanted to have a showcase to show off how amazing those characters are and how amazing those actors are – and certainly Tom Hiddleston as Loki, as well. And also to do it in a new medium and do it in a way that couldn t be done in a feature film. (Photo by Marvel Studios/Disney+)“By the first few episodes of WandaVision, people are asking, ‘Where is Agnes going to show up again? What else is she going to do?’… Within the MCU, [Kathryn Hahn’s return] can’t come soon enough.” We were all fans of [Kathryn Hahn] at Marvel Studios. And she had come in for a general meeting coincidentally right around the time we were trying to cast Agnes-slash-Agatha. It was one of those, Why didn t we think of this before? Louis D Esposito [co-president of Marvel Studios] actually sat down and had a general [meeting] with her. And it very quickly went from that: She s great. What could she do for us someday? Anyway, who s going to play Agatha? We really have to cast this part. Wait a second… It was honestly almost exactly like that.One of the great things in building the MCU is seeing audiences respond to characters that they were not expecting or that they were not asking for. I wouldn t say there was a huge contingency of people banging down the door for Agatha Harkness to appear in the MCU, but she s a great character portrayed by a great actress. And by the first few episodes people are asking, Where is she going to show up again? What else is she going to do? I think the same thing s happening right now with John Walker from The Falcon and Winter Soldier series and certainly with Mobius M. Mobius as portrayed by Owen Wilson in the Loki series. So, that is something that is so important to the MCU: including new characters. The comics are filled with many lifetimes of spectacular characters and when you find the best actors to portray them it can quickly go from an audience never hearing of a character to them upset with us that we haven t already announced their own standalone movie. And that makes us all very happy. Rotten Tomatoes: When will we see Agatha next? Someday. Someday soon. You will see Kathryn Hahn in Knives Out 2 next, then maybe an assortment of other things. But within the MCU, it can t come soon enough. Let s put it that way.(Photo by © Marvel Studios)“For Sam Wilson, wearing the red, white, and blue in America would be complex. That is what we were interested in exploring.” Of primary importance [with the creation of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier] was allowing Anthony Mackie to show the full range of what Anthony Mackie can do. Such an amazing, amazing actor, and same thing with Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes. But when old man Steve Rogers handed the shield to Sam Wilson at the end of Endgame, you could see a complexity in Anthony s performance there. Old man Cap says, How s it feel? And Sam says, Like it belongs to somebody else. And old man Steve says, It doesn t. It s yours. It wouldn t be that simple. It wouldn t be that simple for anyone to step into those shoes that Steve Rogers had worn, but particularly for Sam Wilson, wearing the red, white, and blue in America would be complex. That is what we were interested in exploring. That s what Anthony was interested in exploring – our fellow producers, Zoie Nagelhout and Nate Moore. And thankfully when Malcolm Spellman, our head writer, came on, is really when all of that it turned into the series that you saw.It is a series that he had written with his writing staff before the pandemic. We d started shooting that before lockdown. So [that was] in 2019. Some people have asked, Were you surprised that it become even more relevant after 2020? What we d gone through? And what Malcolm says is, Well it was relevant in 2019 as well, it s been relevant for 100s of years, which is exactly correct. Figuring out a way to both wear the red, white, and blue with pride, and acknowledge the past at the same time, seemed like an interesting needle to thread and one that we needed filmmaker like Kari Skogland and writer like Malcolm Spellman and his team to pull off. That thread will certainly continue into the future [in Captain America 4]. Yes, with our new Captain America. (Photo by © Marvel Studios)The Loki Team has taken “the TVA conceit that we ve loved so much and turned it into an entirely different way of looking at the MCU and looking at the timeline of the MCU.” I think everything we do, I hope, are building blocks towards the bigger MCU while actually just being entertaining pieces of art in and of themselves. The Loki series explores an organization from the comics that we ve been obsessed with for years at Marvel Studios called the Time Variance Authority. And honestly, 15, 20 years ago [we were] going, This is a great idea. I wonder if we could ever do something with this… Honestly, [we were] thinking it was a pipe dream that would never come to fruition. (But Avengers was a pipe dream 20 years ago.) And now that we have this series, our producer Kevin Wright and our director Kate Herron and our head writer Michael Waldron and executive producer Stephen Broussard have taken the TVA conceit that we ve loved so much and turned it into an entirely different way of looking at the MCU and looking at the timeline of the MCU.And yes, the potential of alternate realities that we ve heard whispers of from the Ancient One and from other characters in a few of our movies [is there], but [we re] actually being able to explore it and try to understand it in, again, a rather subversive way – in a very bureaucratic organization that may or may not be telling the truth about the way things work. The title character also being someone who you shouldn t necessarily take at face value, and is perhaps the most famous trickster that there is. (Photo by Marvel Studios)“Tom can take that enthusiasm with his immense amount of talent and really rally a crew behind him as well, which is what he did on that show.” Tom [Hiddleston] is as great an actor as they come. He s as charismatic a person as there is, but he also honestly loves that he s been given this chance, from the moment we hired him with Ken Branagh on the first Thor film to the response that episode three [of Loki] got the other week when it debuted on Disney+. Tom is just as enthusiastic from that first call to each episode of Loki coming out. And that is so important. I think all of us at Marvel Studios try to maintain that enthusiasm and acknowledgement and humility of how lucky we are to be in this position. Tom can take that with his immense amount of talent and really rally a crew behind him as well, which is what he did on that show.One of the other things that s personally so exciting about continuing a franchise for this long is getting to evolve your relationship with the cast. Tom started as an actor that Ken Branagh knew who – as people may know – famously auditioned not for Loki, but for Thor, and then felt very thankful to get this job as Loki. I now find myself thankful that he said yes and that he is an executive producer on this Loki series and is helping us make the series what it is. Relationships evolving over the years is one of the other great pleasures of working with spectacular talents like that. And that s true on films like Black Widow, which Scarlett Johansson was a producer on with us as well, and all of the Disney+ series. (Photo by Chuck Zlotnick. ©Marvel Studios 2021. All Rights Reserved.)On Loki’s Bisexuality: “Representation is important across the board and the comics chart the path.” Representation is important across the board, and the comics charts the path in almost all ways for what we do in the MCU. And in the comics there are many LGBTQ characters and we want to showcase that on the screen as well. We want to bring those characters to life on the screen. As Stan Lee used to say, Marvel represents the world outside your window. And outside of our window there are all different types of people in all different types of places with all different types of preferences and we want that reflected in the MCU and in our fictional world as it is in our real world. So it is of utmost importance that when people go in and see one of our films, or log on to Disney+ and watch one of our series, that it represents the true world outside their window when it comes to the types of people portraying the heroes and the characters in our world. (Photo by Marvel Studios)“That Scarlett chooses to continue to work and to bring Natasha Romanoff to life is a testament to the character of Natasha and how rich she is in the comics and how much more there was to explore.” Scarlett Johansson is just the perfect representation of an amazing actor lending their talents to our stories for a decade. That is an amazing privilege to have and one that we don t ever take for granted. She was nominated for two Academy Awards in one year, a few years ago! She is spectacular and could do whatever she wants. That she chooses to continue to work and to bring Natasha Romanoff to life is a testament, I think, to the character of Natasha and how rich she is in the comics and how much more there was to explore – and a testament to Scarlett, who likes bringing these complex characters to life. It really is a perfect representation of when you find a perfect actor willing to dedicate their talents to an amazing character from publishing that you can go 10 years on and be on the verge of their first standalone movie – and thankfully our first movie in a theater in almost two years. I just can t wait for people to see in a theater, or on Disney+ if they want. But to get out there and see what Scarlett and the entire team has done. (Photo by ©Marvel Studios)“The very first question that often comes out of people seeing Black Widow for the first time is: When will Florence Pugh show up again in the MCU? And my answer to that is always ‘not soon enough.’” Yelena is a character that s been the comics for many years now and a character that we d wanted to bring to the screen for quite a while. Soon after we cast [Florence], I think she was nominated for Little Women, which was amazing. And again, like Scarlett, being able to traverse these worlds of classic literature like Little Women and moving over to what we consider also classic literature of the Marvel comics – and do both with equal import and with equal pouring of their heart and soul into it, which everybody, all of our filmmakers and writers and the entire team at Marvel Studios do. Florence did that tremendously well.The very first question that often comes out of people seeing Black Widow for the first time is when will Florence Pugh show up again in the MCU? And my answer to that is always “not soon enough,” because she s amazing. It’s another testament to Scarlett – who knew exactly the movie that we were making, who was a part of the development of the movie – [that she chose to] make that film an ensemble and to surround herself with new characters portrayed by new actors entering the MCU and allowing them all to shine, knowing that lifting them up lifts up the whole movie, which is what a smart producer does – which Scarlett is. So every compliment that Florence or David [Harbour] or Rachel [Weisz] or O-T [Fagbenle] get on a movie, I also turn back to Scarlett for being so smart to allow the film to be a showcase for multiple characters, which is what the best of our films can do. Black Widow is in theaters and available on Disney+ via Premier Access from Friday July 9, 2021. Loki is currently streaming on Disney+; the season finale will be available Wednesday July 14, 2021.(Check back next week for the second half of our interview, where Feige previews Shang-Chi, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and more.)On an Apple device?

Young actor Roman Griffin Davis makes his feature film debut as the title character in Taika Waititi s Jojo Rabbit, an anti-hate satire about a pre-teen Nazi who deals with the stresses of WWII Germany by talking to his imaginary friend Adolf. (Yes, that Adolf.) Davis s performance is being heralded by critics as one of the best child debuts in years – he s hilarious and heartbreaking, nimbly navigating the tonal shifts Waititi s movie makes as Jojo befriends the Jewish girl his mother is hiding in the house and begins to question his blind allegiance to the Fuhrer (both the real and imagined one). Davis sat down with Rotten Tomatoes for our video series Fresh First and opened up about working with Waititi and Scarlett Johansson, how he s changed since shooting, and why cheese toasties are the ideal on-set snack.

The next few months are going to be dominated by big awards movies (think Bombshell, Little Women) and even bigger blockbusters (The Rise of Skywalker). But they re not the only films worthy of your attention, and money, on the horizon. There is some great indie fare, much of which debuted on the festival circuit this year, coming to theaters and streaming services soon. So mark these dates down – at least the ones we have; we re still waiting for release info on some of them – to get your quality indie fill.Guns Akimbo (2019) 51%Courtesy of TIFFAccording to critics, Jason Lei Howden’s latest action-packed adventure is just the right balance of good old-fashioned American excess and pointed social commentary about our fascination with guns, violence, and masculinity. Starring Daniel Radcliffe as Miles, a bumbling ne’er-do-well, Guns Akimbo is what Robert Daniels at rogerebert.com calls an exciting and sometimes trite adventure into the world of tech, the internet, and our insatiable need for brutality on demand. When Miles is unwillingly recruited into a notorious and illegal underground death match called “Skizm,” he must figure out how to survive the day, save the girl, and become the hero. Nothing goes according to plan, of course, but the journey is what makes it fun.Pursued by Skizm champion Nix (played with campy fun by Samara Weaving in another killer role following her breakout performance earlier this summer in the Certified Fresh Ready or Not) and trying hard not to “shoot his dick off” with the guns literally bolted into his hands, Miles embarks on a darkly funny race through the city. According to Birth.Movies.Death., the movie overflows with a frenetic, intense energy that supports Radcliffe s progressively-more-unhinged performance. Release date TBD.The Obituary of Tunde Johnson (2019) 89%Courtesy of TIFFAli LeRoi’s feature debut is a lyrical take on police brutality and the many vagaries of living as a black gay man in America. Working from a screenplay by USC film student Stanley Kalu, LeRoi blends terror and fiction in this time-loop drama: his protagonist wakes up dead every day, repeating old routines, meeting with his secret boyfriend, and coming out to his parents again and again before being murdered by police once more.The film’s slow build makes these rash of deaths feel immediate and terrifying. Each path to the end is different from the last and tragic in its own way. As Tunde navigates his relationships anew each day, he is never quite conscious of the last, forced to make new decisions without any knowledge of his past and future. But as he’s constantly reminded that he has so much to live for, the arc of his fateful day begins to bend. Beandrea July for The Hollywood Reporter writes that The Obituary of Tunde Johnson is “an agonizing tale about the weight society hoists upon too many black gay men’s weary shoulders.”Release date TBD.The Platform (2019) 79%Courtesy of TIFFCritics are calling this debut from Spanish director Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia a thrilling morality tale about the radical power of working toward the common good. The film’s focus is the terrifying prison of Urrutia’s near-future dystopia: The Pit. Vertically stacked cells set around holes in the ceiling and floor connect each level’s two captives to each of the others. Every day, a decadent feast is sent down to the prisoners through the tower’s delivery system, stopping at each floor for a brief time. Those at the top are kept well-fed, while those at the bottom starve. One citizen volunteers to serve a six-month sentence in exchange for professional credentials upon his release, but the horrors he experiences as he makes his way through the Pit’s “vertical self-management system” force him to think about what we owe each other, how we can support each other, and who precisely wins when we choose neglect instead of cooperation.Critics and audiences are saying that the Spanish thriller is disorienting, but incredibly arresting in its tight critique of our current political climate. Variety called it a “brutalist nightmare for the way Urrutia’s vivid and inventive cruelties flesh out the psychological madness of living in such casually cruel conditions. The prisoners demonstrate how social mores can break down when people are pushed to the outer edges of their own humanity. The Platform is coming to Netflix. Release date TBD. How to Build a Girl (2019) 79%Courtesy of TIFFStarring Booksmart and Lady Bird’s Beanie Feldstein and based on the novel of the same name by screenwriter and journalist Caitlin Moran, How To Build A Girl is what Rendy Reviews calls another cementing case of the gleaming star power of Feldstein s talent. The film follows protagonist Johanna Morrigan (Feldstein) through the highs and lows of rock and roll. Initially lonely and longing for adventure, Morrigan gets it when she auditions to be the rock critic for English magazine D ME with a review of “Tomorrow” from the musical Annie. Writing under the alias Dolly Wilde, Morrigan constructs a version of herself she thinks other people prefer but loses herself in the process. Critics say what follows is an earnest but devilish adventure into teen girlhood, and how finding yourself can mean breaking yourself down and starting from scratch. Variety writes, “How to Build a Girl dares to argue that reinventing yourself doesn’t make you a poseur.”Release date TBD.Waves (2019) 84%© A24Still sizzling from the Certified Fresh Luce, Kelvin Harrison Jr. leads the highly acclaimed Waves alongside a cast of highly recognizable faces. Written and directed by Trey Edward Shults, Waves explores the struggles of a young African-American teen with his family and his ambitions, and his ultimate fall from grace. The film is “a kinetic essay on the beauty of the body in motion” according to the Los Angeles Times, and blends music and memory to create what Film Inquiry calls a “grandiose, quasi-Greek tragedy.”In limited release November 15, 2019.Hala (2019) 86%Courtesy of TIFFThis quiet, contemporary coming-of-age film written and directed by Minhal Baig is a stunner in every way that matters. Starring Geraldine Viswanathan (the breakout star of 2018’s Blockers) in the titular role, Hala explores the intimacy of family life and the weight of cultural expectations. As Hala, a young Muslim woman of Pakistani descent, comes into herself and discovers the ways in which her parents were people before she came along, she begins to find the dividing line between who they are, who she is, and who they want her to be.Faced with budding romantic and sexual feelings and her parents’ disapproval, Hala starts meeting a male classmate in secret, telling as many lies as are necessary to give her a solid alibi. But when she discovers a devastating secret about the state of her parents’ marriage, she’s forced to re-evaluate her position in the family and her willingness to pretend for the sake of appearances. As 812 Film Reviews puts it, the film “balances the familiar with the foreign to pull for a girl whose strength of freedom is at once powerful and quiet.” In limited release November 22, 2019.Clemency (2019) 91%© Neon Chinonye Chukwu’s sophomore feature stars Alfre Woodard as Bernadine Williams in what Nick Allen of rogerebert.com calls a “towering performance [that] is sure to push her into awards contention.” Woodard takes on the role of a prison warden tasked with carrying out the execution of inmate Anthony Woods (Aldis Hodge). The film not only explores the emotional toll executions take on the prisoners facing certain death, but also digs into the long-term psychological effects of being mandated to take another human life.As Woodard’s Bernadine struggles with taking pride in a job that means carrying out legal but often unjust sentences, her marriage crumbles. Populated with strong supporting performances from the likes of Wendell Pierce and Danielle Brooks, Clemency is a study in how the barbaric can become mundane, and what changes for the people forced to witness or inflict violence as a matter of course.In limited release December 27, 2019.Honey Boy (2019) 94%© AmazonShia LaBeouf makes his screenwriting debut and stars as an analogue of his father in a reimagining of his own life story. Honey Boy recounts the difficult childhood of Otis Lort (Lucas Hedges) as he reflects on life with his abusive father. Reckoning with the trauma of his past, LaBeouf finds a way to create “the cinematic exorcism needed to deal with a major actor’s PTSD,” according to Brian Tallerico at rogerebert.com. A.A. Dowd at the AV Club writes of LaBeouf: “It’s just fascinating to see the actor play with the power of his persona and our association with it.” A Quiet Place’s Noah Jupe plays young Otis, giving a performance that EW s Leah Greenblatt calls “remarkably tender and unsentimental. In limited release November 8, 2019.Midnight Family (2019) 97%A documentary that provides what The Hollywood Reporter calls “a visceral understanding of the cutthroat nature of this private-ambulance business,” Midnight Family follows the exploits of a family of EMTs in Mexico City as they try to make a living by providing critical medical care. Filling in the gaps left by the government’s inadequate resources, the Ochoa family battles with other private ambulance providers to race to the scene of accidents and earn their keep – all while knowing that they have no recourse should a client be unable or simply refuse to pay.As they come up against the glad-handing and corruption of the city (money changes hands in transactions that seem less than legal), it is the 17-year-old Juan Ochoa who maintains order in the household, taking care of his brother, minding the money frugally, and trying to keep his struggling family together. As Alissa Wilkinson at Vox puts it, Midnight Family is ultimately a “sweet, fascinating portrait of a group of people trying to make the best of a bad situation, and sometimes succeeding.”In limited release November 15, 2019.Like this?

(Photo by Warner Bros./courtesy Everett Collection)All Harry Potter Movies Ranked by TomatometerThe Harry Potter film franchise ruled the box office for a decade, but it also managed the uncommon feat of earning Certified Fresh status for every single one of its installments. It remains one of the most successful movie sagas of all time, and it’s even spawned a spinoff series. But while the first Fantastic Beasts continue the Certified Fresh streak, the second became the first Rotten entry in this cinematic Wizarding World. As theaters prepare for a third film in 2021, we re ranking all Harry Potter movies by Tomatometer!
史上最贱小游戏1 This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Dungeons Dragons, Excelsior!, and Revenge of the Nerds.This WEEK S TOP STORYCHRIS PINE ROLLS A NATURAL 20 ON DUNGEONS DRAGONS (Photo by Clay Enos/©Warner Bros.)One lesson we can take from film history is that trends change over time, and a failed concept decades ago could be a success today. Consider, for example, the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Back in 1990, the first Captain America movie (Rotten at 13%) didn t even get a theatrical release in the USA, and it went direct-to-video two years after it was made. Similar to the contemporary popularity of comic books, the role-playing game Dungeons Dragons is much more in vogue now than it was in 1990, when the first Dungeons Dragons movie (Rotten at 10%) was released. Warner Bros. had been trying for several years to get a new Dungeons Dragons movie produced, including periods when actors like Ansel Elgort and Vin Diesel were either in talks or were approached about starring. Since then, the rights to the Dungeons Dragons movie moved to Paramount Pictures, which also has the rights to other Hasbro properties like Transformers, Micronauts, and G.I. Joe. The Dungeons Dragons reboot appears to draw closer to actually happening this week with the news that Chris Pine is now in talks to star and also produce the adaptation. It s not super surprising that Pine is being eyed by Paramount, as he was also their Captain Kirk in the most recent Star Trek films. The premise and setting of the new Dungeons Dragons movie are not yet known, except that hopes of it possibly being a Dragonlance adaptation appeared to be dashed earlier this year (Forgotten Realms, though, is still totally possible). What we do know is that Dungeons Dragons will be directed and written by the team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who co-directed Game Night (Certified Fresh at 85%), and also co-wrote Horrible Bosses and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Daley also starred in Freaks Geeks, which memorably had a very special Dungeons Dragons episode. In addition to Wonder Woman 1984 (12/25/2020), Chris Pine will also soon be seen in the thriller Violence of Action, Olivia Wilde s Don t Worry Darling, and the spy film All the Old Knives.Other Top Headlines1. MILLIE BOBBY BROWN JOINS THE RUSSO BROTHERS ELECTRIC STATE(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)After directing four films for Marvel Studios (the two most recent Captain America and Avengers films), Joe and Anthony Russo are next directing films for two streaming apps: Cherry for Apple+ and The Grey Man for Netflix. We now know what film might be the duo s return to theatrically targeted feature films, as they are now signed to direct and produce a science fiction film for Universal Pictures. Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is attached to star in Electric State, which will be an adaptation of the graphic novel of the same title. Brown will play a teenage girl who goes on an adventure with a toy robot to discover what happened to her missing brother in an imaginative world of humans mixing with robots, uncovering a grand conspiracy in the process. The Electric State screenplay is being adapted by screenwriting partners Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who previously worked with the Russo brothers on all four of their Marvel movies, as well as The Grey Man. Directly addressing the theatrical or streaming question, Joe and Anthony Russo said in their announcement that, We’re thrilled to have this deal with Universal who has committed to a theatrical release of Electric State. In addition to season 4 of Stranger Things, Millie Bobby Brown will also soon be seen in the monster movie sequel, Godzilla vs Kong (5/21/2021), which will premiere both in theaters and on HBO Max.2. FLORENCE PUGH JOINS MYSTERY THE MAID (Photo by A24)After decades of relative absence from mainstream box office prominence, the mystery genre appears to be coming back, following the 0+ million takes of both Murder on the Orient Express (2 million worldwide) in 2017 and Knives Out (1 million worldwide) in 2019. The de facto sequel to that first film, Agatha Christie s Death on the Nile would have come out by now if not for the COVID-19 pandemic, but is now scheduled for September 17, 2021. We can also add a film called The Maid, which Universal Pictures is adapting from a novel to be published in 2022 (possibly after the movie comes out to avoid spoilers). Florence Pugh (Midsommar, Black Widow) is now signed to produce and star in The Maid as the title character, who works at a fancy hotel where she uses her access to learn the dirty secrets of every one of the guests (the novel is also being compared to 2017 s Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine). In addition to Black Widow (5/7/2021), Pugh will also soon be seen in Olivia Wilde s Don t Worry, Darling, and in the Disney+ series Hawkeye (reprising her Black Widow character).3. RISE OF SKYWALKER COSTAR SAYS I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY (Photo by Jonathan Olley/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)When most American fans saw last year s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Rotten at 51%), they were probably unfamiliar with Naomi Ackie, who played Jannah, the leader who assists our heroes on Kef Bir. Ackie is better known in the U.K., however, where she has won the 2017 British Independent Award for Most Promising Newcomer for Lady MacBeth (Certified Fresh at 88%) (starring the aforementioned Florence Pugh, by the way), and this year, won a BAFTA TV Award for Best Supporting Actress in The End of the F***ing World (Fresh at 93%). The British actress is about to have a much higher profile among American moviegoers, though, as she is in final negotiations with Sony Pictures to star as the late pop superstar Whitney Houston in the musical biopic, I Wanna Dance with Somebody (which takes its title from the hit single I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me) off Houston s second album). I Wanna Dance with Somebody will be directed by Stella Meghie, whose most recent film was this year s The Photograph (Fresh at 74%), starring Issa Rae and LaKeith Stanfield. Meghie will be directing from a screenplay by screenwriter Anthony McCarten, who also wrote the Queen biographical musical Bohemian Rhapsody (Fresh at 60%). About casting Naomi Ackie, Meghie said, I was moved by her ability to capture the stage presence of a global icon while bringing humanity to her interior life. 4. SETH MCFARLANE BACKING REBOOT OF 1980S COMEDY HIT REVENGE OF THE NERDS (Photo by ©20th Century Fox Film Corp. courtesy Everett Collection)Like some other 1980s comedies, there are scenes in the 1984 hit Revenge of the Nerds that have glaringly not aged well at all in our post-#metoo era. Now, as many other movies from the era continue to be rebooted, Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane is preparing to do the same thing for Revenge of the Nerds, which he ll be producing for 20th Century Studios. The project already has its comedy leads lined up, as identical twin brothers Keith and Kenny Lucas, who costarred in 22 Jump Street (Certied Fresh at 84%), are set to both star and write the adapted screenplay. The only brothers in Revenge of the Nerds were of the fraternity variety, so if they play actual brothers in the remake, that alone will be a significant departure from the original premise (though the film is reportedly more of a reboot than a direct remake anyway, so the entire premise might be significantly different). As Variety puts it, instead, the contemporary reimagining will pontificate about today’s nerd culture and what even constitutes a geek in the 21st century. It s worth noting that this is not the first attempt at rebooting Revenge of the Nerds, which almost happened in 2006 until officials at Emory University in Atlanta objected to some of the raunchy hijinx in the script. 5. SAM ROCKWELL TO STAR IN MOVIE ABOUT NISSAN-CEO-TURNED-FUGITIVE (Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Although he is far from a household name in the USA, the story of former Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn really does read exactly like a movie script. Following an arrest in 2018 for charges of misuse of company assets, Ghosn proceded through a series of legal ins-and-outs and evasion of arrest ultimately leading in 2019 to his becoming an internationally wanted fugitive still sought by Interpol. MGM is going all in on adapting the life story of former Green Beret Michael Taylor, the American security contractor who assisted Ghosn in his evasion from arrest and capture. Sam Rockwell is now attached to produce and star as Michael Taylor in a feature film about Ghosn s escape, which will be developed concurrently to an MGM TV series which will also adapt Taylor s earlier life story (with a different actor to be cast as the younger Michael Taylor). Both the Sam Rockwell movie and the prequel TV series are being adapted from a Vanity Fair article about Michael Taylor and Carlos Ghosn, which you can read right here.6. BEN MENDELSOHN JOINS SHAILENE WOODLEY IN MISANTHROPE(Photo by JA, Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Anything pre-COVID-19 feels like decades ago, even if it s only been months, but this story starts back in May of 2019 at the the Cannes Film Festival, when a serial killer film called Misanthrope was first announced. Shailene Woodley has since then been attached to star as a police officer recruited by the FBI to assist in the tracking down of a serial killer, and now we know that the lead cop in Misanthrope will be played by acclaimed Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn. Mendelsohn is currently filming the latest version of Cyrano (de Bergerac), starring Peter Dinklage, and he was also announced by Disney last week to be reprising his Skrull character in the Disney+ series Secret Invasion, along with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.7. THIS YEAR S BLACK LIST INCLUDES STAN LEE AND JACK KIRBY MOVIE EXCELSIOR!(Photo by Gabriel Olsen/Getty Images)At the end of every year since 2005, The Black List of Unproduced Screenplays has served as a survey of hundreds of film industry executives to find which screenplays appear on the highest number of most liked screenplay lists. The Black List takes those results and publishes the titles and premises of all of the screenplays that received at least 7 mentions. This year s top pick, with 29 votes, is a cannibal drama called Headhunter about a serial killer who uses Instagram to find their next victim, until the latest target turns out to be someone totally into it (gross). #2 with 28 votes is a basketball comedy called Chang Can Dunk, and #3 with 26 votes is Neither Confirm Nor Deny, which tells the true story of a secret CIA operation that acquired a nuclear-armed USSR submarine in 1968. One of the most intriguing projects, coming in with 9 votes is Excelsior!, which tells the true story of the friendship and collaborative partnership between Marvel Comics editor and writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, who together created such characters as Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and The X-Men. Other projects on this year s Black List include Ripper (as in Jack The), Enemies Within (about Senator Joseph McCarthy and the HUAC), and Gusher (about Anna Nicole Smith). You can browse through the entire Black List of this year s screenplays (in PDF format) right here.8. SHE S ALL THAT STAR RACHAEL LEIGH COOK JOINS REMAKE HE S ALL THAT (Photo by Miramax)While Rachael Leigh Cook fans are left still awaiting the (probably unlikely) Josie and the Pussycats sequel, as it turns out, they will at least have the remake of She s All That (Rotten at 41%) called He s All That. That s because we can now report that Rachael Leigh Cook has indeed joined the cast of the gender-swapped remake, although not as the character she played in the first film (since it s a remake and not a direct sequel). Instead, Cook will play the mother of the female lead (played by Addison Rae) who, in this version, oversees the makeover of an awkward teenage boy (played by Tanner Buchanan), whereas in the original film, those two roles were the opposite genders. He s All That will be directed by Mark Waters, whose filmography includes notable Lindsay Lohan vehicles like Mean Girls (Certified Fresh at 84%) and Freaky Friday (Certified Fresh at 88%).9. YAHYA ABDUL-MATEEN II JOINS JAKE GYLLENHAAL IN AMBULANCE (Photo by Warner Bros.)Michael Bay immediately followed his run as the director of several Transformers movies with the Netflix project 6 Underground (Rotten at 36%), starring Ryan Reynolds. For his next project as director, Michael Bay is returning to a theatrically-distributed action thriller in the form of a remake of a 2005 Danish film called Ambulancen, which unsurprisingly translates to English as Ambulance. Jake Gyllenhaal has been attached to star in Ambulance since the project was first announced, but this week, we learned who two of his costars will be. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who recently has starred in two different DC Comics adaptations (as Black Manta in Aquaman, and in a role-we-won t-spoil in HBO s Watchmen) has joined the cast in an undisclosed role. The premise of the original film involved two fugitive brothers hijacking an ambulance, and it appears that the female ambulance driver they inadvertently kidnap will be played by Eiza Gonzalez, who will also soon be seen in Godzilla vs Kong, when it premieres in theaters and on HBO Max (5/21/2021).On an Apple device?

10. The Finale in Session 9 (2001) 64%A condemned asylum. Inside: clattering chains, disturbed wheelchairs, and crumbling wards. A group of people enter to clean up the place, some who harbor dark histories. Sound like a set up for classic dark and stormy Gothic tale? Not so with Session 9. What kind of clean up crew would work at night? Come on, this is a horror movie: Logic is king here. A slow atmospheric burn with minimal gore until its final minutes, but even when things go to hell, the blood is bathed in New England sun.9. Freddy s Coming For You in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) 95%Time for a victory lap: Hop into the convertible on this bright school morning having vanquished the tormentor of fatal dreams, turn around and wave goodbye to your mom standing on the porch. Suddenly, the top slams down and the car peels down the street, as mama is sucked through the front door window. The nightmare has only just begun. The original Friday the 13th s Jason Voorhees made the last-second jump scare a mandatory inclusion for 80s slashers and beyond. Freddy Krueger may have perfected it.8. Michael Myers Stalking in Halloween (1978) 96%John Carpenter s classic did a lot of things right. Gave us a classic creepy synth score. Destroyed suburbia s manicured image as a stronghold of safety and comfort. And it rolled out the red carpet to let masked killer Michael Myers to wander and stalk his prey in broad daylight. The shot of Myers staring up at you from among the billowing laundry sheets hung to dry in the yard remains an iconic and violating image.7. The Day After in The Hills Have Eyes (2006) 52%The Carter family is subjected to a litany of brutal terror over the course of 24 hours. During the initial day, they re led off-road and their car gets mangled in the desert. The family separates in search for help. A dog gets gutted. The gas station attendant commits suicide. And always mutants are watching them from afar in the brush and rocks, leading to a long night of crucifixions, immolation, rape, murder, and baby-snatching. And then the next day, the cannibals feast on sun-cooked flesh. It s a torturous chain of events that transforms the remaining Carters into out-for-blood hunters in a highly questionable, deeply satisfying revenge ending.6. Randy s Death in Scream 2 (1997) 81%You knew director Wes Craven wasn t fooling around when he killed off know-it-all cinebuff Randy, portrayed by Jamie Kennedy as someone as smart and cynical as the audience. How could he have fallen for the afternoon masked killer in the local news van with noisy nearby breakdancers? Oldest trick in the book! But it s also series most shocking homicide outside of Drew Barrymore s, the one that tells the oh-so-smart audience that no one was truly safe. The Arquettes, Courteney and David as Gale and Dewey, frantically search for the killer in the college square by accosting students with their new-fangled mobile phones, presenting on screen when awful taunting calls escaped the constraints of landlines and curly cords, and into a new world of free-roaming terror.5. The Ceremony in The Wicker Man (1973) 88%Midsommar owes a blood debt to this provincial classic: the unsettling tale of an uptight Christian cop investigating a young girl s disappearance on an island of decadent mystic pagans has thematic and visual parallels to Aster s film. Likewise, nearly the entire movie is set during the day among verdant nature and maypole celebrations and foreshadowing musical rhymes that seem to follow the officer everywhere he goes. It s far too late when he realizes the true nature of his work, leading to a fiery climax in the friscalating dusk light.4. The Premonition in Final Destination 2 (2003) 48%Some of the best horror wedges its way into the normal, degrading the routine and humdrum into a morass of paranoia and fear. Final Destination 2 does that with the daily morning commute, because what could be more humdrum than getting in our 1,000 lb. metal husks every day, navigating them manually down the road as cars careen towards us in the opposite direction separated only by capriciously painted lines on the ground? Suddenly, something as innocent as a flatbed of loose tree logs becomes a rolling thunder revue of broken windshield, splattered heads, and Michael Bay–style auto explosions.3. The Opening Chase in 28 Weeks Later (2007) 71%28 Days Later s famous opening features calm shots of the hero wandering an empty London metropolis depopulated by zombies moments we would consider eerie, almost beautiful, but not scary. 28 Weeks Later takes the opposite approach. It s set in the countryside, as a band of infected descend upon defenseless survivors. The camera is in your face, the footage choppy and frantically (but not confusingly) edited, save for a gliding crane shot as our new hero flees across the field and towards a waiting river boat. The fact that he just abandoned his wife to the zombies moments earlier contribute to the gut-punching bleakness of the situation. Now that we consider scary.2. Leatherface Appears in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) 89%Like a rusty chainsaw, Tobe Hooper s horror masterpiece takes a moment to rev up. But once it gets going, the movie is relentless, grinding down the viewer s endurance up until the famous ending of Leatherface cutting the rising sun light in boiling anger. It s a great final appearance, but his first introduction is even better. Hapless travelers, in search of gas for their thirsty boogie van, approach a piquant homestead, oblivious that its inhabitants are cannibal freaks who have no qualms doing their dirty deeds in daylight. Leatherface suddenly appears from out of a hallway, smashes his victim s head in with a hammer as the body crumples and twitches on the ground, and then slides the slaughterhouse door shut. Looks like meat s back on the menu, boys!1. The Beach Attack in Jaws (1975) 98%The scene that made a generation of filmgoers terrified of open water. It s immaculately crafted pop horror and it still works today. Steven Spielberg uses a collage of beach crowd noise and throngs of people innocently rising to disorient the viewer, telling us to be just as alert as Roy Scheider s police chief. Spielberg famously had to use every filmmaking tool he knew to overcome critical obstacles like a malfunctioning shark, and here heightens and stylizes reality as Jaws approaches the beach. A split diopter lens shot puts an obtrusive face and a possibly drowning distant swimmer in equal focus. A dog is discovered missing. We get that terrifying first-person viewpoint as Jaws picks his victim, and the incessant John Williams theme building on the soundtrack. Then a dolly zoom as terror dawns on Schieider s face. A geyser of blood erupts out in the ocean as pure pandemonium breaks out, and a frantic mother loses her son. It s a powerful scene in how powerless it makes a man of law feel against a force of nature.Like this?

Beasts of the Southern Wild debuted at Sundance in 2012, cementing Benh Zeitlin as a uniquely imaginative filmmaker. The movie blew audiences away and wound up with four Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture. Fans couldn’t wait to see what this new auteur would deliver next. Well, Zeitlin took eight years to finish his sophomore feature, the Peter Pan-inspired Wendy, and it just premiered at Sundance to mixed reviews. If you love Beasts, though, there’s a good chance that you’ll want to see this movie, too.Here’s what critics are saying about Wendy:Is Zeitlin s follow-up worth the wait?That magnificent eye is still there… Zeitlin is an auteur just as we thought he was and he’s going to continue to challenge his audience. Gregory Ellwood, The PlaylistWith Wendy, Zeitlin aims for the stars, often forgetting what direction to fly in… Most disappointing. Ian Thomas Malone, Ian Thomas MaloneWhat felt so revolutionary in 2012 is no less visionary today but packs a disappointing sense of familiarity this time around. Peter Debruge, VarietyThere’s a reason that films that take this many years to get to screens often come up short… Wendy is a cautionary tale about what causes sophomore slumps. Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.comWill fans of Beasts of the Southern Wild enjoy it?Zeitlin’s wondrous Pan riff feels like such a natural continuation of the Beasts experience that it practically unfolds in the same immersive universe. Eric Kohn, IndieWireWendy bears some of the same elements — rambunctious kids, magical realism, unknown actors, climate awareness — [but] it feels like an even stronger picture thanks to its filmmaker’s growing ambition. Matt Goldberg, ColliderMaybe some people will think Zeitlin is revisiting the style and themes of Beasts a little too closely, but that movie was thrilling and so is this one. Steve Pond, The WrapIt seems hard to imagine anyone who didn’t respond to Beasts somehow thinking this one works, and even fans of that film may be startled at the repetition. Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com(Photo by Fox Searchlight Pictures)What about fans of Peter Pan?Wendy both honors its inspiration and creates something original. Steve Pond, The WrapAs with David Lowery’s transportive live-action remake Pete’s Dragon, Zeitlin has taken an overwrought children’s story and given it a fresh identity without toppling the original’s core ideas. Eric Kohn, IndieWireZeitlin’s adaptation overflows with imagination as it manages to deconstruct the myth while never losing its timeless energy… The result is constantly enchanting and beguiling. Matt Goldberg, ColliderIt’s thrilling to discover how Wendy reinvents the particulars of a fairy story audiences know so well, and which Disney has so strongly codified for nearly everyone alive today — although the omission of Tinker Bell and the other fairies will likely be a let-down. Peter Debruge, VarietyThere are times when you can feel the film straining to deal with aspects of the original story in a so-called organic way. Todd McCarthy, Hollywood ReporterWill children enjoy it?The movie’s a bit too intense, and more than a little too arty, to suit young audiences. Peter Debruge, VarietyKids will be bored by this movie. Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.comThe lack of any real narrative structure — and the few odd surges of menace, one of which blooms into a moment of shocking physical violence — make it hard to imagine that a younger audience will follow. Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment WeeklyMileage will vary when it comes to Zeitlin’s Terrence Malick for kids aesthetic, which turns on awe-inspiring cues at every turn, and sometimes threatens to turn into a parody of that very thing. Eric Kohn, IndieWireHow does it look?Wendy is an absolutely beautiful film. Largely filmed in the Caribbean, the cinematography provides visual overload time and time again. Ian Thomas Malone, Ian Thomas MaloneThe new movie uses the expansive landscapes of the Caribbean to imbue the proceedings with a spiritual tranquility that lingers in every shot. Eric Kohn, IndieWireEvery frame of the film is excitingly alive and freshly conceived, making it something very much worth seeing on the big screen. Todd McCarthy, Hollywood ReporterAs raw and arresting as Wendy’s visuals are, they’re in service of familiar notions about the fragility of innocence and the impermanence of childhood. Tim Grierson, Screen International(Photo by Fox Searchlight Pictures)Does the story match the visuals?If Zeitlin is infatuated with the act of storytelling, he’s also very good at it. Steve Pond, The WrapThe social commentary feels not only pointed and timely, but still relevant to the conflict of innocent childhood versus jaded adulthood. Matt Goldberg, ColliderAfter a fairly dazzling setup, Wendy stumbles in its later reels, introducing ideas that are often obvious or unfocused Wendy is so passionately crafted that its narrative shortcomings, though bothersome, can’t entirely detract Tim Grierson, Screen InternationalWendy is fun for a while, but as it drags on, it becomes harder to follow — and worse, boring. Peter Debruge, VarietyThe script is a one-trick pony, uninterested in anything resembling normal human interaction. That wouldn’t necessarily be a problem if the plot knew how to do anything other than meander along at a glacier-slow pace. Ian Thomas Malone, Ian Thomas MaloneThe actual plot of Wendy is so uninteresting that I wished Zeitlin would have been more surreal and symbolic. Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.comEvery kid inevitably grows and turns toward something new; storytellers should too. Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment WeeklyIs Wendy s lead the next Quvenzhané Wallis?Zeitlin’s best asset here is actually [Devin] France, his young lead, who has striking screen confidence and a maturity that makes her seem like a natural leader. Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com[Devin France] resonates with a richness that carries you through the story and often when Zeitlin needs it the most. Out of all the young (and old) actors she makes you believe in this scenario. Gregory Ellwood, The PlaylistDoes Wendy invite repeat viewings?Wendy in every way feels like a handmade, one-of-a-kind, exceptionally fresh and…organic piece of work that quite quickly imparts a desire to see it again. Todd McCarthy, Hollywood ReporterWendy premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, January 26, and opens in limited release on February 28.
