The buzz around the Netflix biopic Mank had previously been considerably muted, with many singling it out for below-the-line categories, but after leading the Critics Choice film nominations with 12, the story about Citizen Kane s prickly scribe Herman Mankiewicz is back in contention. The biopic earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor (Gary Oldman), Best Supporting Actress (Amanda Seyfried), and Best Director (David Fincher). A24 s immigrant tale Minari (Certified Fresh at 198%) followed closely behind with 10 nominations, providing competition for Mank in Best Picture, Best Actor (Steven Yeun), Best Supporting Actress (Youn Yuh-jung), and Best Director (Lee Isaac Chung) as well. Couple today s nominations with recent SAG nominations, including the coveted Best Ensemble nom, and things are shaking out very well for the quiet drama, which will go head to head with Oscar frontrunner Nomadland.Not to be left out, the Frances McDormand-led drama currently sitting at the top of our Awards Leaderboard was nominated for 6 awards of its own, including Best Picture and Best Director for Chloé Zhao. The winners will be revealed live on The CW on Sunday, March 7, 2021 from 7-10pm ET/PT, with star Taye Diggs returning to host.

We have been busy at Rotten Tomatoes these last two months recommending tons of movies and TV series to watch during quarantine (you can find a ton of lists here). But sometimes you re not in a position, or mood, to plonk yourself down in front of a screen. Perhaps you re working, or gardening, or cooking, or exercising, or hiding in a closet for a few minutes of peace and quiet away from your kids/pupils/audience. Either way: tough to follow the twists and turns of Ozark as you do that. To help in these moments – and to generally keep you sane and healthy as we endure our collective cabin fever – the RT staff curated a list of 15 scores to pair with different parts of your quarantine life. Looking for something to push you through that last set of burpees? We have an orchestral doozy for you. Got a swoony Zoom date? Try something with French flavors. Want a new soundtrack to your Animal Crossing hours? Daft Punk is here to help.What movie music are you listening to at home? Let us know in the comments. Gattaca (1997) 83%(Photo by © Columbia/courtesy Everett Collection)Composer: Michael NymanThere are moments in Gattaca where nothing much is happening on-screen, but the rich Michael Nyman score is going in hard. In my early Gattaca-watching career (I ve seen the movie eight or nine times now), I thought this was faulty, like the music was overcompensating. Plainly, this was a bad take. The music is devastatingly romantic. And not just how it informs the relationship between Jerome and Irene (Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman), but also Jerome s love for himself, to believe he is capable of something far beyond his cursed birthright. These times ask us to search for this kind of inner strength, to navigate daily life s new chaos, and carry a torch of hope for the not-too-distant-future. Gattaca s soundtrack, culminating in the impossible beauty of The Arrival, is the music of that guiding light.Listen when: Working from home – this s t is motivating! – but only if you like your job, and you re not on a call. – Alex Vo, EditorRomeo and Juliet (1968) 95%(Photo by Courtesy Everett Collection)Composer: Nino RotaItalian composer Nino Rota has quite the résumé: La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, and, of course, the first two Godfather films, both of which earned him Oscar nominations, and the second of which got him a win. My personal favorite, though, is his score for Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet, starring Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey. Maybe it takes me back to the high school English class in which I first saw the film, but there’s something about Rota’s love theme – a little trepidatious at first before a rousing strings-led swell, all laced with a certain feeling it’s not going to turn out well – that helps me focus when editing or reading. Be warned though: The score’s final tracks, which accompany the tragic finale on screen, are intense. Skip those, re-start from the beginning, and pretend the young lovers had a dagger-less ending.Listen when: You’ve carved out some time in your day to read (and have got your looking interested photo programmed to your Zoom feed). – Joel Meares, Editor-in-ChiefAnatomy of a Murder (1959) 100%(Photo by Courtesy the Everett Collection )Composers: Duke Ellington, Billy StrayhornThere are several reasons why Otto Preminger s Anatomy of a Murder is one of the greatest courtroom dramas ever, but it s arguably best remembered for its striking opening title sequence by Saul Bass and its incredible soundtrack, composed by none other than jazz legend Duke Ellington and his longtime collaborator Billy Strayhorn. Together, Ellington and Strayhorn put together a complete musical package that was alternately sultry ( Flirtibird ), playful ( Happy Anatomy ), melancholic ( Almost Cried ), and mysterious ( Midnight Indigo ), and it all still feels fresh and alive today. Of course, the most memorable song is probably the Main Title theme that accompanies Bass opening credits, but the whole score just drips with style. It s also worth noting that it was not only one of the first soundtracks entirely scored by jazz musicians, but also the first one for a major Hollywood film that was created by an African-American composer. Movie soundtrack or not, it s a masterpiece.Listen when: You re feeling fancy and having a glass of wine in a bubble bath. – Ryan Fujitani, Snr. EditorThe Handmaiden (2016) 95%(Photo by © Amazon Studios /Courtesy Everett Collection)Composer: Jo Yeong-wookThe Handmaiden, like so many others, is the type of film that Bong Joon-ho spoke of when he urged English-speaking audiences to hurdle over the one-inch barrier of subtitles during one of his acceptance speeches last year for Parasite. The Korean- and Japanese-language film, which was not selected for Best International Film in 2016, sadly never reached a wide audience and was instead relegated to join other underrated/unknown non-English gems (most of which are available to stream – so get busy). Due to its under-the-radar status, many not only missed the seductive romance-thriller director Park Chan-wook weaved, but also the humorous and erotic score that plays throughout most of the film. The music, like the film it plays beneath, is surprising and genre-defying, mixing dark themes employing strings, clarinets, and harps with romantic melodies.Listen when: You re scrolling through exotic locales, dreaming of the day you can travel to distant lands once again. – Jacqueline Coley, EditorDrive (2011) 93%(Photo by Richard Foreman Jr/©FilmDistric/Courtesy Everett Collection)Composer: Cliff MartinezYou can split Drive s original Cliff Martinez soundtrack into three categories: Pensive, ethereal, and fittingly, driving. Kick Your Teeth and Skull Crushing are among the pensive songs, and they suggest a shadow looming high over your shoulders, like a clockwork beast wound up to strike. The ethereal songs make you feel like you re drifting through a hazy dream, and have incongruous names like They Broke His Pelvis and Wrong Floor. These two moods converge in the driving songs ( Rubber Head, Where s the Deluxe Version?, Hammer ) that speak to those luxuriating in their delusional power fantasies and modern fairy tales. And, in this world, who can blame them?Listen when: You re out for a sanctioned late-night drive, on the route with the most lights. – VoToy Story (1995) 100% and Toy Story 2 (1999) 100%(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, © Pixar)Composer: Randy NewmanOver four films, the themes and movements of Randy Newman’s Toy Story scores have become as familiar to many ’90s kids as “The I

8.21.8 2月喜迎(Photo by Well GO USA/ courtesy Everett Collection)20 Movies To Watch If You Loved Train to BusanIf you re looking for more movies like Train to Busan, the South Korean zombie classic that sunk its teeth into savvy filmgoers and hasn t let go since its 2016 release, why not first punch your ticket for something in the shared universe? Check out Seoul Station, an animated prequel to Busan, directed by the same guy, Yeon Sang-ho. He was primarily an animation director before Busan (that was his live-action debut), and he followed that up with 2018 s Psychokinesis, his take on the superhero genre which also had a father-and-daughter relationship driving the plot. Yeon will be back in 2020 with Peninsula, another story set in the world of Train to Busan.For more from South Korean, consider checking out Rampant, a period piece action epic about – true to history, we re sure – a zombie outbreak. Deranged and The Wailing are also about illness and outbreak in contemporary SK. (For more quality choices from the region, see our list of 30 Certified Fresh South Korean movies.)If you re really into the whole train setting, seek out Snowpiercer, directed by Parasite s Bong Joon-ho, The Cassandra Crossing, about a biological weapon that may have been set loose in the caboose, and Howl, wherein a passenger train and its riders have to deal with an outbreak of werewolves.Zombie godfather George A. Romero spent his career exploring the different stages of undead chaos: from infection, to pandemic, to normalization. His last great film, Land of the Dead, explored the latter, depicting society that had tenuously adapted to a new, dark way of living. Carriers, The Road, and The Crazies (a remake of a Romero movie) are further entertaining, credible looks at society-destroying diseases in America.Of course, if you consider yourself a Train to Busan fan, you might also think of yourself an adventurous movie-watcher, ready for pandemic and outbreak movies beyond the borders of America. To that, we ve assembled suggestions from the UK (28 Weeks Later, Children of Men, The Girl With All The Gifts), Japan (I Am a Hero), France (Ravenous, The Night Eats the World), Germany (Rammbock: Berlin Undead), and Spain ([REC]).
(Photo by Rich Fury/Getty Image)GOOOAALLL!!! Apple TV+ s feel-good comedy Ted Lasso received the 2021 Primetime Emmy Award for best comedy series. In total, between Sunday s broadcast and last week s Creative Arts Emmy Awards, the Jason Sudeikis-led series about a mustachioed fish-out-of-water British football coach received 11 trophies including one for its leading man, plus supporting acting trophies for actor Brett Goldstein and actress Hannah Waddingham.That 11-trophy haul was something matched by limited series The Queen s Gambit and drama The Crown, which dominated the night in their respective categories.See what critics are saying about the 73rd Emmy AwardsCheck out the best looks from the Emmys 2021 red carpetSee the full list of winners from the 2021 Emmy AwardsDespite adhering to quarantine regulations by keeping the event to an intimate gathering in Los Angeles as well as a watch party in London (where it was 1am when the broadcast started), the Cedric the Entertainer-hosted CBS program managed to hand out 28 awards including the annual Governors Award, which this year went to actress-director and dance extraordinaire, Debbie Allen. That things went so smoothly – if at times rather dully – might actually have been the biggest surprise of them all, as most of the winners were as routine as a morning drop-off of biscuits from an overly optimistic Kansan. But there were some big bold takeaways from the night, not all of them the kind you wanna sing about 1. The Brits Rule the Night(Photo by Rich Fury/Getty Images)It wasn t just Ted Lasso that won big at the Emmys. As mentioned, the TV Academy also raised a few pints to Netflix s monarchy drama, The Crown. The series won best drama, creator Peter Morgan won the Emmy for writing for a drama series and Jessica Hobbs took home the Emmy for best directing for a drama series. The series actors Olivia Colman, Josh O Connor, Tobias Menzies, and Gillian Anderson (who was technically born in Chicago, but is married to Morgan and spent a chunk of her childhood in London, so we ll let it slide) also received honors.Other British winners included Mare of Easttown s Kate Winslet, who received the Emmy for lead actress in a limited or anthology series or movie and I May Destroy You s Michaela Coel, who received the Emmy for writing for a limited or anthology series or movie. Ewan McGregor, who is Scottish, also won the lead actor in a limited series or movie Emmy for his work in Netflix s Halston.How did the Brits celebrate? In style. Check out the Ted Lasso team performing the Roy Kent cheer below The whole Ted Lasso cast crew did the Roy Kent cheer backstage and it was pretty special #Emmys pic.twitter.com/2HNJsTuc5d Kevin Polowy (@djkevlar) September 20, 20212. Michaela Coel Implores Creators to Write the Tale That Scares You One of the biggest surprises of the night wasn t that Coel won for writing the HBO limited series I May Destroy You, but that she didn t win more awards for her work on the powerful piece about rape, assault, and survival. (The 2020 miniseries is Certified Fresh with a 98% Tomatometer). She was also nominated for directing and starring in the project, which was also nominated for best limited series or anthology.Coel s remarks upon accepting her Emmy will also not soon be forgotten. During the concise and poignant 33-odd second acceptance Coel told her fellow creatives to write the tale the scares you; that makes you feel uncertain; that is uncomfortable. I dare you. Other winners with memorable Emmy acceptance speeches included Mare of Easttown s Julianne Nicholson, who reached out to all the ladies in Philadelphia and Kabul, Hacks star Jean Smart, who thanked her late husband, and Governors Award winner Allen, who spoke to the women in Texas and Afghanistan as well as the next generation who are just beginning to fight for equality.3. Lack of Diversity Among the Winners. Again.(Photo by Rich Fury/Getty Images)After last year s Emmy Awards saw major gains for performers of color, in particular Black performers, this year s ceremony was a step back in that department. Although RuPaul made history, becoming the person of color with the most Emmy wins, there were very few people of color who would eventually be on the winner s stage. This was frustrating to many viewers, as many performers of color were nominated this year, including Billy Porter, Mj Rodriguez, Uzo Aduba, the cast of A Black Lady Sketch Show, and the late Michael K. Williams, among many others.On the brighter side, several of the Emmys bits did recognize Black talent. One featured host Cedric and three different actresses who have played his wives on sitcoms. (The Neighborhood s Tichina Arnold, The Soul Man s Niecy Nash, and The Steve Harvey Show s Terri J. Vaughn).4. Touching Tributes to Friends We ve Lost, Including Michael K. Williams and Norm Macdonald(Photo by Rodin Eckenroth/FilmMagic)While the traditional In Memoriam segment was as tear-jerking as always, several people on stage also took the time to remember their friends. Both Last Week Tonight s John Oliver and Saturday Night Live s Lorne Michaels referenced comedian Norm Macdonald, who died last week, in their acceptance speeches. And Kerry Washington made a point of mentioning the work of Michael K. Williams when presenting the supporting actor in a drama category, in which he was nominated for his work in HBO s Lovecraft Country. The reaction on her face when her friend lost that category was palpable.5. Schitt s Creek Cast Shows Why We Still Can t Get Enough of Them(Photo by Cliff Lipson/CBS via Getty Images)It s been a year since the cast of Netflix s Schitt s Creek swept the Emmys and kept us laughing all the way through that ceremony. So that s why the stars banter before presenting the award for best writing for a comedy series felt so warm. Was there actually a teleprompter issue? Was star Eugene Levy actually giving notes to the Emmy Awards writers? Does it even matter? Sometimes it s not worth asking why we re given good things.6. Conan O Brien Photobombs His Way Into Our HeartsWhen you re 6 4 with a shock of red hair and a recognizable laugh, it s hard to blend into a crowd. Especially if you re Conan O Brien. The talk-show host made his presence known at the 2021 Emmy Awards, even though he did not actually receive an Emmy. He made sure to crash any opportunity he could get, be it improvising remarks to TV Academy CEO and chairman Frank Scherma or joining Stephen Colbert and his producers on stage when they accepted the award for best variety special (live) for Stephen Colbert s Election Night 2020.On an Apple device?

(Photo by 20th Century Fox)Blockbuster movies cost a bunch of money to make – jaw-dropping special effects and big-name actors don t come cheap. In order to make the expense worth it, movie studios need to pull out all the stops to get moviegoers to buy tickets once the film premieres, and that typically involves a killer marketing campaign. These days, slick trailers, along with all sorts of unique real-world stunts and marketing gimmicks, can be as much of a production as the final movie itself.These memorable marketing campaigns take different forms — sometimes it just takes a really well-done trailer and a memorable use of a song, as seen and heard in the trailer for Jordan Peele’s Us, which retools Luniz’s “I’ve Got 5 on It” in a deliciously creepy way. Other times movie marketers will stage mysterious real-world stunts to get excited fans involved. Whatever the method, a well-done marketing campaign for a well-done movie often means box office success.Here are 10 of the most memorable movie marketing campaigns we ve seen.Jaws 2 (1978) 61% and Alien (1979) 98%(Photo by Universal Pictures/20th Century Fox Film Corp.)Studio: Universal Pictures / 20th Century FoxWhy you remember it: Because of two incredible taglines.Let’s kick things off with a tie, as both films are shining examples of an older era of promotion, before viral marketing was a thing. Jaws was the first blockbuster, but Jaws 2 was briefly the highest-grossing sequel of all time until Rocky II bested it the following year. Part of the film’s success likely has to do with one of the greatest taglines of all time — “Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water” — the work of famed and innovative producer Andrew J. Kuehn.The following year, Alien came around with one of the other great taglines in movie history, “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Neither of these movies had real-world promotional activations, but they were united in memorable taglines that, thanks to their use of the second-person, made would-be viewers feel part of the cinematic horrors to come.Did it work? As mentioned, Jaws 2 was a huge success, pulling in 8 million. Alien’s box office figure is a little disputed, as some creative Hollywood accounting originally recorded the film as a loss for Fox, but it went on to spawn an iconic, acclaimed sci-fi horror series. And, of course, those two taglines are now forever seared into the public consciousness.Deadpool (2016) 85% Studio: 20th Century FoxWhy you remember it: Because Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool.Deadpool is known as the Merc with a Mouth, and the film’s promotional team sure did have a lot to say about the film. There was so much marketing, and all of it projected an irreverent, slightly naughty sense of fun. There were parody posters, custom emojis, a feud with Wolverine (and Hugh Jackman), a costume reveal via faux-nude spread, and a flaming bag of poop yule log, to name just a few campaign highlights. Then there was Reynolds, who, as the person most responsible for making Deadpool happen, projected his passion for the wise-cracking hero and modeled his own social presence after the Merc.Two years after Deadpool was released, Reynolds and the Fox marketing team went even harder with the promotion of Deadpool 2, taking over the DVD covers of other popular movies at Walmart and handling Stephen Colbert s late-night monologue duties, before going further yet for in its meta promotion of Once Upon a Deadpool. The marketing behind the franchise is now officially one of the reasons we look forward to another Deadpool movie.Did it work? Deadpool made 5 million at the box office and became the highest-grossing R-rated film ever. Not bad for a superhero movie.The Social Network (2010) 96% Studio: Columbia PicturesWhy you remember it: Because “you don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.”David Fincher’s moody bio-pic about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is really an exceptional villain origin story, and the marketing for the film made that clear. The first trailer is scored to a haunting cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” as sung by a children’s choir, illustrating how there was something unsettling behind all this “friending.” Then there’s the poster, which features Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) looking at the viewer from the shadows, his face obscured by the memorable and ominous tagline in a crisp Futura font. Both the “choral cover of pop song” and “poster with words on a face” would go on to be often-imitated promotional tropes, but they were just the Google Plus to The Social Network’s Facebook.Did it work? The Social Network made 4.9 million and was nominated for or won a host of major awards. Plus, Zuckerberg had some qualms with the movie – so that s a success.Psycho (1960) 96% Studio: Paramount PicturesWhy you remember it: Because of the secrecy and Alfred Hitchcock’s suspenseful set tour.Modern moviegoers who were too young to remember seeing Psycho in theaters probably remember Hitchcock’s iconic slasher for the famous shower scene. Hitchcock knew that would be the case. Movie trailers weren’t what they were back then — the idea of multi-level movie marketing as we know it today didn’t really emerge until the late 90s. But, Hitchcock was the master of suspense, and he knew how to get an audience shaking with curiosity and anticipation. The trailer for Psycho featured Hitchcock giving a tour of the Bates Motel, offering gory hints of what horrors might have happened there but stopping just short of giving anything away. That, along with a campaign to keep the shocking twist in the movie a secret – which went so far as preventing Paramount Studio execs from reading the script – had audiences eager to see what happened.Did it work? Psycho cost about 0,000 to make and made more than million during its initial release — and this is in 1960s dollars! It was a huge hit, went on to enjoy multiple theatrical reissues, and is generally regarded as a landmark horror movie. So, yeah, Hitchcock’s a great tour guide.Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006) 91% (Photo by @ 20th Century Fox)Studio: 20th Century FoxWhy you remember it: Because of Sacha Baron Cohen’s in-character interviews as Borat.It’s fitting that a movie that blurred the lines between comedy and documentary (not to mention acting and reality) would have a similarly meta promotional campaign. Borat wasn’t a new creation, as Cohen’s character had been on the Da Ali G Show for years, but he wasn’t widely known. That let Cohen dupe the movie’s subjects — as well as many would-be ticket-buyers – into thinking that this kooky Borat character might be on the level.Did it work? Borat made 2 million at the box office, much to Kazakhstan’s chagrin.Cloverfield (2008) 78% Studio: Paramount PicturesWhy you remember it: Because of all the rampant speculation about the top-secret mystery plot.A good marketing campaign doesn’t give everything away, it just teases some of the best stuff so that moviegoers are excited to see the rest. Cloverfield’s marketing was so memorable because it gave, well, essentially nothing away. The first trailer, which came by surprise ahead of Transformers screenings, didn’t even include the movie’s title or any plot details. This, along with some innovative virtual tie-ins (shout-out to MySpace), had fans wondering what it might be. A Lost movie? A Godzilla film? An anime adaptation? Something new?Did it work? Like The Blair Witch Project, which pioneered this type of hype-building mystery promotion, Cloverfield was a hit. The film made 0.8 million against a budget of million, and spawned a whole franchise/ universe of sci-fi films united mostly by viral marketing, though none were as successful as the original.Inception (2010) 87% (Photo by @ Warner Bros. Pictures)Studio: Warner Bros. PicturesWhy you remember it: Because of the spinning top mind-game (and the “BWWAAHHHH” sound).Warner Bros. spent 0 million to market Inception, an increasingly rare blockbuster that was wholly original, not a sequel nor an adaptation. To get people excited about an unknown quantity, the studio banked on Christopher Nolan’s post-Dark Knight appeal and made an online viral game involving the spinning top that diehard fans tried to solve. The game unlocked the official trailer, and that was a great piece of advertising too, in no small part because of the booming Inception sound that rightfully became a meme.Did it work? The marketing certainly planted the idea of going to see this movie in a lot of people s’ heads, because Inception made 8.3 million at the box office.The Dark Knight (2008) 94% (Photo by @ 20th Century Fox)Studio: Warner Bros. PicturesWhy you remember it: Because you solved an interactive mystery across a virtual Gotham City, and Heath Ledger’s untimely death.The heroes of DC Comics save the day in fictional cities, like Metropolis. But, to promote the second (and best) of Christopher Nolan’s three Batman movies, the alternate reality game company 42 Entertainment made Gotham City real. Using websites like WhySoSerious.com, fake Gothamite newspapers, and Harvey Dent campaign materials, 42 Entertainment sent fans on a scavenger hunt all over the web and the physical United States — starting with San Diego’s Comic-Con, where one reward was the first image of the movie s Joker. It gave fans a tantalizing glimpse of the drama to come, and let them feel like the Batman, the World’s Greatest Detective, himself. Add to that the tragedy of Heath Ledger’s untimely death ahead of the premiere of his incredible performance as the Joker, and you’ve got a super-powered level of expectations.Did it work? The Dark Knight made over billion at the box office and was popular enough to change the way the Academy Awards work.Paranormal Activity (2007) 83% Studio: Paramount PicturesWhy you remember it: Because you had to demand it.Paranormal Activity was an extremely inexpensive movie, one that seemed destined for a modest indie release and perhaps a chance at becoming a cult classic. But, the marketing team at Paramount had the bright idea of democratizing horror. Trailers were released featuring night-vision footage of shocked and delighted viewing audiences and promising a scary theater experience; would-be moviegoers had to vote on a website, hoping that there would be enough fan demand for Paramount to bring the film to their city or town. The website, which was made with the user-driven event calendar company Eventful’s help, added a sense of urgency and participation in what otherwise might have just been an overlooked found-footage flick.Did it work? Paranormal Activity cost just ,000 to make, and it made more than 3 million at the box office. It is, by most accounts, the most profitable movie ever made.The Blair Witch Project (1999) 86% Studio: Artisan EntertainmentWhy you remember it: Because you thought it was real.Without The Blair Witch Project’s marketing, there would be no Cloverfield, no Inception, and essentially no viral movie marketing as we know it today. In the early days of the internet, Artisan Entertainment’s scrappy online team created a website and surrounding hype campaign that claimed the story of the Blair Witch was true. There were interviews with the “missing” characters’ parents and backstories from investigators trying to solve this “true” story. In the real world, missing posters went up around colleges and at film festivals. Because of all the marketing, The Blair Witch Project wasn’t just a low-budget indie horror flick — it was a real, ongoing mystery. Moviegoers and internet users have gotten more media-savvy, so this feat likely won’t be equaled, but The Blair Witch Project was the perfect storm, a way to use technology, advertising, and psychology to turn “based upon a true story” into box office gold.Did it work? The Blair Witch Project made 8,639,099, which is more than 4,000 times what it cost to make the movie. Also, admit it — you thought, for a second, that it was a documentary.What were some of your favorite movie marketing campaigns? Let us know in the comments!Like this?

to his 80s heyday, which saw the likes of Ghostbusters, Stripes, Caddyshack, and Scrooged put into theaters. The 90s not only had his lead-starring masterpiece Groundhog Day, but also the zany What About Bob?, and his first reinvention as the patron saint of comedic melancholia, Rushmore. All that paved the way for his towering 2000s output, featuring The Royal Tenenbaums, Lost in Translation, his Best Actor-nominated Broken Flowers, and Garfield which we re mentioning because it led directly to his inspired cameo in Zombieland.Now, take a look at Bill Murray movies ranked by Tomatometer.
(Photo by Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)There were a handful of forgettable war-related films released in 1999: The General’s Daughter, All The King’s Men, the Robin Williams-starrer Jakob The Liar. And then there was Three Kings (Certified Fresh at 94%), part action comedy, part heist movie, and 20 years later, still holding up as one of the best and most subversive war films ever made.Directed with adrenalized panache by David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle), Three Kings followed on the heels of Steven Spielberg’s heroic 1998 WWII epic Saving Private Ryan, which canonized the sacrifices made by the Greatest Generation. But Russell had no such patriotic flag to wave. Like Catch-22, Three Kings satirically probes the insanities of war; like Apocalypse Now, it revels in surreal set pieces and sharp visual juxtapositions; like M*A*S*H, it mixes black humor with moral complexity.Its heroes are reluctant ones, soldiers who start out consumed by their own self-interest until forced by untenable circumstances to take a moral stand.IT HAS A KILLER VISUAL LOOKInspired by color photos of the war that appeared in newspapers at the time, Russell and his cinematographer, Newton Thomas Siegel, devised a saturated, blown-out look for the Iraqi desert (actually Arizona) in the film. They increased the contrast and graininess and bypassed the bleaching stage of the film process, giving the desert landscape a foreboding, surreal look, which set the visual template for other films about contemporary wars that followed. The Iraqi village was designed by production designer Catherine Hardwicke, who served the same role on films like Tombstone and Tank Girl and would go on to direct the first Twilight and Lords Of Dogtown.IT MAKES ASTUTE POLITICAL POINTS WITHOUT BEING PREACHY(Photo by Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)Russell exposes the hypocrisy of American foreign policy in the Middle East and indicts the Bush Administration for its abandonment of anti-Saddam insurgents – whom the U.S. had encouraged to rise up against the Iraqi dictator – all without pedantic speeches or heavy-handed scenes. The soldiers who steal back the Kuwaiti gold from Saddam – George Clooney, Ice Cube, Mark Wahlberg, and Being John Malkovich director Spike Jonze – spend the latter part of the film, at great risk to themselves, helping a group of insurgents reach the Iranian border, foreshadowing the refugee crisis of future wars to come.IT HAS THE MOTHER OF ALL INTERROGATION SCENESWhat’s a good war movie without at least one hard-to-watch interrogation scene? Most of these scenes tend to follow a simple formula: someone, usually a soldier, is captured behind enemy lines and tortured for information. But the scene between Moroccan actor Saïd Taghmaoui as an Iraqi army officer and Mark Wahlberg as the captured American soldier gets up close and personal in a way few of these scenes manage to.While the Iraqi does torture Wahlberg s character with electric shocks, he’s no faceless sadist; our sympathies are engaged when we learn he’s lost his young son and daughter to American bombing raids. But the capper comes when Taghmaoui forces oil down Wahlberg’s throat, a searing indictment on what many felt was the real point of America’s intervention in Kuwait: to protect its oil reserves in the Middle East.IT’S THE FIRST WAR FILM TO SHOW GRAPHICALLY WHAT A BULLET CAN DO TO THE HUMAN BODYRussell was concerned about viewers being anesthetized to gun violence; his answer was to give the audience the uniquely visceral experience of how a bullet traumatizes the human body. In the scene, Clooney lectures his men: What makes any gunshot wound bad, provided you survive the bullet, is something called sepsis. Say a bullet tears into you right now. It creates a cavity of dead tissue, the cavity fills up with bile and bacteria, and you’re f ed. As the soldiers listen, the camera tracks a bullet as it smashes into the body, tearing through flesh and filling the organs with bile.While doing press for the film, Russell grew so irritated with a reporter’s questions that he made up a story about how the bullet scene was done using a real corpse. Needless to say, the studio did not find it funny.IT TRANSFORMED GEORGE CLOONEY’S CAREERIn 1999, Clooney was still playing a doctor on NBC’s hit TV show E.R. After the disappointment of 1997 s Batman Robin (11% on the Tomatometer), he was desperate for meatier roles in prestige projects. In particular, he wanted the role of Three Kings’ disillusioned Special Forces Major Archie Gate (it didn’t hurt that Warner Bros., who produced Three Kings, also produced E.R.), but his relationship with Russell was volatile from the start. The weather on set in Arizona was hot, and the shoot proved to be chaotic. Clooney would often show up on set only to find that Russell had completely rewritten his scenes. As recounted on Slate.com, the two famously came to blows after Clooney objected to Russell physically manhandling an extra on the set.Nevertheless, the film helped to cement Clooney as a leading man, as he jumped to starring roles in The Perfect Storm and O Brother, Where Art Thou? Late in Three Kings, after Jonze is killed and Wahlberg is wounded by a sniper, he even gets an E.R. moment, placing a flutter valve in Wahlberg’s chest to allow air to escape from a punctured lung.Three Kings opened on October 1, 1999.Like this?

So far critics are responding positively to the show s more adult take on superheroes. But will Doom Patrol: Season 1 (2019) 96% stay Fresh as its premiere approaches and reviews rack up? It s looking good so far How does Doom Patrol compare with Titans?(Photo by Jace Downs / 2018 Warner Bros Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved)Doom Patrol boasts the better premiere. Taking that into consideration, it could very well eclipse its predecessor given time, of course. – Eric Joseph, We Got This CoveredExecutive produced and written by Jeremy Carver (Supernatural, Being Human), Doom Patrol still has many of the same “mature” aspirations as Titans, including a pilot episode that not only features plenty of nudity, but also drops F-bombs as though its main point of reference for how people talk is Goodfellas and The Departed. – Kevin Yeoman, ScreenRantWhere the lack of content restrictions on DC Universe’s Titans always felt like kids getting to say curse words for the first time, [Brendan] Fraser wields them like a comedy weapon. Almost every expletive elicits a laugh, and Fraser milks them for all they’re worth. But beyond that, there’s a an incredible depth and numerous surprises to Steele’s story that you (probably) won’t see coming. – Alex Zelban, Decider I found the first hour of this oddball adventure far more enjoyable and consistent than DC Universe s Titans, enlivened by sharp direction and a great ensemble. – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.comDoes the Acting Measure Up?(Photo by Quantrell D. Colbert / 2018 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved)The strength of Doom Patrol is how the fun balances so well with the adult, dark elements, and none of that would work without both great writing and a stellar cast. – Jessica Mason, The Mary SueWhat makes it work, beyond the fun of the deconstruction, Tudyk s always welcomingly skewering narration and the non-stop weirdness are the performances and deep grounding in the emotional lives of the characters. –ZalbenNeither Fraser nor Bomer are physically present in the roles of Robotman or N 在2021年8月的时候这款手游就已经开始在全中国预约了，目前游戏已经在全球150+个国家和地区上线，受到广大玩家的一致好评。
bt游戏下载 Book Club (which scored 54% and opened to .5 million) look pretty dashed. It is the second week in a row that STX failed to get a million start (including last week’s UglyDolls.)The studio picked up Poms through auction at the American Film Market last November for between million and million, and it opened this weekend to .1 million.Lionsgate’s Long Shot, meanwhile, dropped 37% in its second weekend. While word of mouth has caught up to the film a little, the drop was still to big to beat The Intruder in its second week.Fox Searchlight has opened a film in more than 1,000 theaters just 28 times in its 183-film history. The 29th time came this weekend with Tolkien. While there was enough curiosity to earn it .1 million in 1,496 theaters this weekend, the biopic’s per-screen-average of ,440 currently makes it the second-worst per-theater average among those 29 films. If the estimates hold, that is. If the number actually drops, it could fall behind the ,383 PTA that Miss March had in 2009 and become the worst. Between Tolkien (49%) and The Aftermath (27%), Fox Searchlight has released its two lowest-scored films since 2017’s back-to-back releases of Table 19 (26%) and Wilson (48%).The Top Ten And Beyond: New Releases Nothing To Pikachu About(Photo by Warner Bros.)Back in March, expectations for Pokemon Detective Pikachu were set for a million weekend and, in some circles, a 0 million domestic haul. The high predictions came back down to Earth a bit recently as WB lowballed a million start for its live-action Pokemon film. Audiences split the difference this weekend and handed over million, which is a little more than what The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian opened to. A Dog’s Journey may take a small nibble out of its staying power next week and Aladdin an even larger bite the week after. Critics have marginally put it in Fresh territory with a 63% score and a first estimate of 0-170 million for Pikachu means WB will be counting on international fans to cover its 0 million budget. The film has grossed an additional 2.4 million overseas so far.Also opening this weekend was the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake The Hustle, starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. It opened to a bit less (.5 million) than Wilson’s February comedy, Isn’t It Romantic?, which started with .2 million even with a two-day head start. At 16%, The Hustle is one of the worst-reviewed films of the year, lower than the score for Hathaway’s other delayed 2019 release, Serenity (19%).This Time Last Year: Infinity War Was Also On Its Third Straight Week At The Top(Photo by Marvel Studios)A year ago, Avengers: Infinity War led the way for a third straight week with the fourth-best third weekend in history ( million.) Its two new challengers that weekend, Life of the Party with Melissa McCarthy and home invasion thriller Breaking In, duked it out for second and third with .88 and .63 million, respectively. The documentary RBG also made its way into tenth place in its second weekend with .18 million in 179 theaters. The top ten films grossed a total of 6.69 million and averaged 63.2% on the Tomatometer. This year’s top ten grossed an estimated 2.77 million and averaged 53.4%.On the Vine: John Wick Battles A Dog In Attempt To Take Down The Avengers(Photo by Summit Entertainment)Keanu Reeves returns to potentially close out a trilogy in John Wick: Chapter 3 Parabellum. After the disappointing returns of Long Shot, Lionsgate could use a non-Tyler Perry victory. Will this be the one to finally make it to 0 million? Will its fans be enough to overthrow the Avengers in week four? Speaking of sequels and animals Mr. Wick is fond of, Universal follows up moderate hit A Dog’s Purpose with A Dog’s Journey. Then the director of Before I Fall, Ry Russo-Young, tackles another young adult novel with The Sun Is Also A Star.The Full Top 10: May 10-12Avengers: Endgame (2019) 94% – .05 million (3.49 million total)PokÃ©mon Detective Pikachu (2019) 68% – million ( million total)The Hustle (2019) 14% – .53 million (.53 million total)The Intruder (2019) 33% – .60 million (.97 million total)Long Shot (2019) 81% – .12 million (.73 million total)Poms (2019) 36% – .11 million (.11 million total)UglyDolls (2019) 28% – .92 million (.27 million total)Breakthrough (2019) 63% – .46 million (.10 million total)Tolkien (2019) 51% – .15 million (.15 million total)Captain Marvel (2019) 79% – .81 million (3.77 million total)
