NBCUniversal s Saturday lineup at the winter Television Critics Association press tour came with lots of exciting news for critics: The Chucky TV series is happening on Syfy! A new show for Dwayne Johnson on NBC! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back as Golden Globes hosts!It also came with some frustrations, as NBC Entertainment chairman Paul Telegdy was also met with questions regarding former America s Got Talent co-host Gabrielle Union s complains of workplace toxicity, as well as Saturday Night Live s sudden firing of new hire Shane Gillis before the start of the sketch show s new season. (Rotten Tomatoes, like television channels NBC and Syfy, is also a division of NBCUniversal).Below, we ve gathered some intel TOP STORYMAKING NEW SHOWS FEELS LIKE CHILD S PLAY(Photo by Charles Sykes/NBCUniversal)While much of the day was focused on broadcast network NBC, there was still news coming from the cable networks under the NBCUniversal umbrella. One big one is that Syfy has given a straight-to-series order for Chucky, a television show about the cherubic homicidal doll from the Child s Play movies.According to the press release, the plot follows what happens after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, causing an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Plus, it promises the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past [who threaten] to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster. Don Mancini, who wrote the 1988 film Child s Play, created and will show-run this series. He s also directing the first episode. He is executive producing along with David Kirschner, who produced that film, Nick Antosca and Harley Peyton.A premiere date has yet to be announced.THE GLOBES LEADING LADIES(Photo by Charles Sykes/NBCUniversal)Ricky Gervais promised that the 2020 Golden Globes ceremony would be his last as host, and it looks like he and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have made good on that; NBC announced on Saturday that close friends and network regulars, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, would return as co-hosts of the annual awards show.Poehler announced the news herself at TCA, appearing on stage at the beginning of the press day in place of NBC Entertainment executive vice president of communications Chip Sullivan. She also shared that NBC has renewed Making It, the feel-good crafting show hosted by herself and Nick Offerman, for a third season. NBC is also working with Fey and her 30 Rock showrunner Robert Carlock on an untitled comedy that stars Ted Danson as mayor of Los Angeles and also includes Holly Hunter and Bobby Moynihan.THE ROCK S NOSTALGIC NEW SHOW(Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)Before he was a charismatic Tweeter, former wrestler, star of HBO s Ballers, and the world s highest paid actor June 2018–June 2019 (according to Forbes), Dwayne The Rock Johnson was a scrappy kid causing trouble. Johnson and Fresh Off the Boat’s Nahnatchka Khan will explore his trajectory for our entertainment in new series, The Young Rock. The sitcom, which Telegdy announced Saturday, has a straight-to-series order. While no premiere date has been announced, Johnson recorded a cellphone video for TCA that included him talking passionately about his roots and also promising that he would be featured in each episode.AGT, SNL AND NBC S BEHIND-THE-SCENES DRAMA(Photo by Trae Patton/NBC)Actress Gabrielle Union announced she d be leaving her post as co-host of America s Got Talent in December, citing a toxic work environment and causing NBC to launch an investigation into working conditions on the set of the popular reality competition show. Telegdy told journalists that this investigation is still on-going but he said that we will put new practices into place, if necessary. Telegdy was also asked if new vetting policies were put in place after sketch show Saturday Night Live hired and then eventually fired Shane Gillis. The comedian lost his job after journalist Seth Simons and others brought to light his history of saying racist comments on his podcast.The executive said that, while he does think SNL boss Lorne Michaels acted quickly, the incident was a learning moment for a lot of people. Still, he added that “vetting people is very triggering for people who live in a world of free speech and comedy that it is an enormously fine line and a gray area.”The latest NBC controversies follow other behind-the-scenes drama in recent years, including the ousting of Today show host Matt Lauer due to allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior, and NBC News refusal to air Ronan Farrow s reporting on Harvey Weinstein that went on to win a Pulitzer Prize and helped spawn the #MeToo movement.PEACOCK ON THE HORIZON(Photo by NBCUniversal)The news that reboots and other iterations of classic shows like Saved by the Bell and Punky Brewster are being developed for upcoming streaming service Peacock instead of NBC has raised eyebrows — and irked quite a few who don t want to deal with another streamer. Telegdy said this was a studio decision, but would I do Saved By the Bell again? Hell yeah! Telegdy also said his programming will appear on Peacock, saying of course we’ve been working in partnership with them, because it’s called Peacock for a reason. JIMMY FALLON S NEW SHOW, NEW AMSTERDAM RENEWAL NEWS, AND MORE(Photo by Andrew Lipovsky/NBC)In the meantime, NBC does have plenty of new and returning shows for you to watch. Telegdy announced Saturday that Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon will also host the network s new series That s My Jam. Based on musical segments from Fallon s late-night show, the comedy variety series will allow celebrities to compete with each other through song and dance. It will premiere during the Tokyo Olympics.NBC renewed New Amsterdam for three seasons, keeping the medical drama on the air at least through the 2022-23 television season, and renewed its successful holiday special event series Ellen’s Greatest Night of Giveaways, from executive producer Ellen DeGeneres, for a new season.The network also ordered 10-part global event series The New World from BBC Studios Natural History Unit, which is set to air in 2024. The series will scale across North America, Central America, and South America to explore the vast landscapes, remote wilderness and mysterious creatures of the region.Syfy announced that it is developing limited series The League of Pan, which picks up where Peter Pan left off and follows a group of misfit youths who refuse to grow up. Dominion s Brian McCauley Johnson is writing.THIS IS US WANTING MORE (Photo by Ron Batzdorff/NBC)NBC s press day also included a panel for its tear-jerker family drama This Is Us, where creator Dan Fogelman and the stars provided some teasers.Co-star Sterling K. Brown said the mid-season premiere, which airs January 14, will continue to delve into his character Randall s mental health and how he takes care of himself — what’s right and what’s wrong about how he takes care of himself and how he could potentially do a better job of that.” Fogelman added that it will also kick off what those involved with the show call trilogy episodes, meaning that it will connect with subsequent episodes that will deal with Randall s twin siblings, sister Kate (Chrissy Metz) and brother Kevin (Justin Hartley).As for internet fan theories that the show in its entirety exists in the mind of one of the characters, similar to the reveal at the end of St. Elsewhere, or that it s actually being told How I Met Your Mother–style with one character retelling the journey to others? I don’t think we’re going to pull the wool out of what the narrative thread of the story is, Fogelman said.欧宝体育最新版本登录手游征途sf是一款刺激冒险的传奇游戏，海量的人物可供选择，超多炫酷技能满屏释放，玩家可以尽情体验，还有丰富的副本内容，感兴趣的小伙伴快来下载体验吧。
When it comes to TV, January 2019 is bringing an embarrassment of riches. With so many quality TV series returning to the small screen this month, we decided to recommend the best of the best in our January binge guide — below, find nine series returning in early 2019 that have one or more Certified Fresh seasons. Happy bingeing in the new year!You're the Worst 95% (FXX)What it is: This dark comedy from creator Stephen Falk is the love story of Jimmy (a pitch-perfect Chris Geere) and Gretchen (the magnetic Aya Cash), two world-weary, self-destructive cynics who want anything but to fall in love — until they do.Why you should watch it: The type of distinctly unheroic antics our lovebird heroes get into in You’re the Worst is enough to make Walter White blush. No joke — this FXX comedy is about as real as it gets. Its fifth and final season premieres January 9.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 19 hours (for the first four seasons)Brooklyn Nine-Nine 95% (NBC)What it is: This hit comedy series from creators Dan Goor and Michael Schur is a workplace sitcom featuring some very distinct personalities — the aloof and gregarious Det. Jake Peralta (Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg), his fictional precinct’s dry commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), and the rest of the motley crew of the Nine-Nine.Why you should watch it: We’ve seen fan-initiated primetime resuscitations before, but rarely do they happen as swiftly and unanimously as Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s after its unceremonious cancellation at Fox. The online outcry had barely begun before Universal Television began shopping the sitcom around, and it was scooped up by NBC just a day later — with good reason. The series is much more than the Andy Samberg show; it’s a tried-and-true ensemble piece with beloved supporting characters and as much humor as heart. Season 6 premieres January 10.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 41 hours (for the first five seasons)Future Man 91% (Hulu)What it is: A hapless janitor named Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson) has one joy in life: video games. And surprisingly, it’s that passion that eventually gets him recruited into saving the world from certain doom. After beating Biotic Wars, a game so difficult that most gamers have given up on it, he learns it was all a test from the future, and is greeted by two mysterious visitors who hang the safety of mankind in his capable gamer hands.Why you should watch it: Considering the creative pedigree behind this series (it’s created by Howard Overman, Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir and executive produced and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg), it should come as little surprise that Future Man is quite funny. But it’s also a high-octane, rollicking adventure and fitting homage to sci-fi genre classics (in case you’re into that sort of thing, too). Season 2 premieres January 11.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 6.5 hours (for the first season)True Detective 78% (HBO)What it is: Like the very best mystery series, much of True Detective’s third installment is being kept under wraps, but what we do know sounds pretty compelling: Over the course of three decades in the Arkansas Ozarks, a pair of detectives work to uncover the truth behind a grisly crime involving two missing children.Why you should watch it: This gritty anthological crime series from creator Nic Pizzolatto was a hit out the gate with season 1, which featured a pair of surprising and career-best performances from Woody Harrelson and Mathew McConaughey. Season 2 was largely seen as a creative misstep, but with Moonlight Oscar winner Mahershala Ali leading season 3 (and a team that professes to have learned from its mistakes), we highly recommend tuning in for its January 13 return.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, HBO Now, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 17 hours (for the first two seasons)Star Trek: Discovery 84% (CBS All Access)What it is: Star Trek: Discovery is set 10 years prior to the original series and in the same universe as Kirk, Spock, and the Enterprise, and sees the titular ship venturing out to discover new worlds and quell violent alien forces. As always, it’s the cast of characters on board that is the series’ beating heart.Why you should watch it: Creators Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman (not to mention star Sonequa Martin-Green, among others) had big shoes and a devout fandom’s expectations to fill when it premiered in September 2017. Our verdict: a job well done. Season 2 premieres January 17 and features Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), the U.S.S. Enterprise, and (another) young Spock (Ethan Peck). Catch up before it starts airing. Where to watch: Amazon, CBS All Accesss, FandangoNOW, Google Play, VuduCommitment: Approx. 12 hours (for the first season)High Maintenance 98% (HBO)What it is: From husband-and-wife co-creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, High Maintenance began as a hit web series starring Sinclair as a traveling weed deliveryman living in New York City. HBO picked it up to series in 2016 and largely retained the comedy s original format, just made its episodes longer.Why you should watch it: While there are plenty of primetime programs that paint a great snippet of present-day NYC, few get the full picture the way High Maintenance does. That’s because each episode features various characters who — whether they’re hosting a swingers party, rebelling against their ultra-religious parents, or sitting home alone collecting cans of La Croix — are from such disparate walks of life that they end up inadvertently highlighting the similarities between all dwellers of the concrete jungle. (And we promise those similarities go beyond enjoying the green.) Season 3 begins January 20.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, HBO Now, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 8 hours (for the first two seasons)SMILF 91% (Showtime)What it is: SMILF is a lot of things, perhaps most of all unexpected. But for the elevator pitch: a single mother named Bridgette Bird lives in South Boston and struggles to find a balance between the toddler son that relies on her and the expectations of work to make ends meet.Why you should watch it: As SMILF’s creator, director, writer, star, and real-life single mom, Frankie Shaw is a force of nature. Pulling semi-autobiographically from her own experience as a working mother, the series is smart, unflinching, and funny. Better yet, the twice Golden Globe–nominated series’ runtime and episode count make it very easily bingeable. Season 2 premieres January 20.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 4 hours (for the first season)The Magicians 91% (Syfy)What it is: Based on the acclaimed fantasy series by Lev Grossman and from producers Michael London, Janice Williams, John McNamara, and Sera Gamble, The Magicians follows Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) after he enrolls in Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy in New York. What follows for the young magician is a collision between our world and a threatening fantasy world with nothing less at stake than reality as we know it.Why you should watch it: The Magicians has all the straight-up drama that comes with magic, secret academies, and battles between good and evil — and it s a whole lot of crazy fun, too. Season 4 premieres January 23.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 30 hours (for the first three seasons)Broad City 99% (Comedy Central)What it is: Creators Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer capture all the tomfoolery of your 20s in their full glory while writing a sometimes-messy love letter to the Big Apple.Why you should watch it: Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and Broad City was a pretty great thing. Irreverent but relatable, honest but larger than life, this hit comedy series about two twentysomething Brooklynites just trying to keep it together tapped into the cultural zeitgeist with gutsy and goofy hot takes on matters of the moment. Its fifth and final season premieres January 24.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 14 hours (for the first four seasons)
4. 呼朋唤友 随心所欲
When you re a kid, every movie is a transporting experience, like peeking in a keyhole to some new reality beyond. You feel the fun, the joy, the wonder. And sometimes the shattering terror. The monsters you had imagined creeping the corners of your mind or darkened bedrooms prowled in full horror on the screen. The awful, awe-inspiring power of witnessing something frightening can reverberate for decades. So in the spirit of Halloween, we asked 12 Tomatometer-approved critics to tell us about the movie scenes they watched as children that scarred them for life. Here are their answers.What movie scenes scared the s t out of you as a kid? Tell us in the comments. Stranger in the House (1974) 71%(Photo by Warner Bros.)The scene: The killer gives our final girl the evil eyeThe scare: The climactic scare in this groundbreaking slasher is really the culmination of a series of scares that assault the senses, beginning with the panicky moment when the police call college student Jess to reveal that the shrieking, barely human obscene phone calls to her sorority house have been COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE! Then, there’s her nerve-wracking decision to employ “horror victim logic” and venture upstairs to check on her sleeping (read: dead) friends rather than heading out the front door. And when she enters the bedroom to find her deceased sorority sisters, the sight of the killer’s rabid, maniacal eyeball peering through the crack in the door as he whispers to her “Don’t you tell what we did!” is the stuff of nightmares. This was one of the first horror movies that drew me into the genre as a kid and made me appreciate the power of fright, and after seeing it, I understood why people would want to dream of a white Christmas. Mark H. Harris, BlackHorrorMovies.comE.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) 98%(Photo by Universal)The scene: E.T. is dyingThe scare: Easily the most horrific visual I ve had seared into my brain involves E.T. when he s sick. He s scary enough as-is, and once his skin turns papery white and blotchy, he looks like a diseased liver stretched over a child-sized nightmare. I ll take Sadako, It, or Chucky over E.T. any day, yikes. Li Lai, Mediaversity ReviewsThe Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005) 44%(Photo by Screen Gems/courtesy Everett Collection)The scene: In the barnThe scare: I was 11 when The Exorcism of Emily Rose was released in September 2005. I remember a friend of mine talking about it, mentioning how she had seen it in theaters that weekend. My exposure to the horror genre was pretty much non-existent at that point, so perhaps Emily Rose was the first of the genre I had ever seen. Needless to say, it ruined my life. Now scared of sleeping in the darkness of my own bedroom, I slept on the floor of my mom s. This lasted for quite some time, maybe a year, which resulted in me having to see a therapist. The scene that scarred me the most is definitely the barn scene. I remember it vividly. Emily, possessed, is growling, screaming in tongues, flailing her arms, and looking upon Father Moore with blackened eyes. Father Moore is commanding the demon inside Emily to say its name, but there isn t just one demon: there are six. We are the ones who dwell within, they say, as they begin to state their names, with actress Jennifer Carpenter using a different tone and language for each: Cain, Nero, Judas, Legion, Belial, and Lucifer. When she says Lucifer, it s particularly frightening, as a faint light flickers in her eyes. The eyes of an animal peering at you through the dark. Sara Clements, @mildredsfierceGhostbusters (1984) 97%(Photo by Columbia Pictures)The scene: Quiet in the libraryThe scare: Ghostbusters might be a definitive comedy classic, but the ghostly librarian is the stuff of nightmares. At least it was for me as a child. The dark, maze-like rows of bookshelves and eerie quiet was atmospheric enough. Even more so when the books and index cards moved on their own accord. But there was no mentally preparing for the ghastly wrath of the librarian. I screamed along with Peter, Ray, and Egon. Still to this day, I’m petrified to make even a peep when stepping foot inside a library. Meagan Navarro, @HauntedMegThe Great Mouse Detective (1986) 80%(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)The scene: Fidget kidnaps OliviaThe scare: An animated Sherlock Holmes-esque detective story starring a mouse is not something that instantly screams “horror.” But The Great Mouse Detective knows how to build a mystery and a tense atmosphere, culminating in the terrifying scene where tiny little Olivia (also a mouse) finds herself drawn to a toy baby crib. As ominous yet playful music builds up to a big reveal, Olivia approaches the crib and pulls on the cover to reveal an evil and scary bat that takes her for a hostage just as the music changes to resemble the screeches from the shower scene from Psycho. Rafael Motamayor, @rafaelmotamayorJaws (1975) 98%(Photo by Universal)The scene: The head in the boatThe scare: The day I saw Jaws on VHS in my dad s basement, I had spent the previous week convincing myself I would be terrified. All the stories from its theatrical run talked about audiences fainting, and I was sure I would freak out. Well, the self-hypnotism worked: When Hooper goes underwater and the head pokes out from the bite in the boat, I remember practically vomiting in fear. For a month afterwards I was terrified of any water, even my morning shower. I was convinced the shark would come out of the spout to attack me! Summer vacations in the East Coast of Canada where I learned to swim had the same murky salt water as Amity Island, and I d look out convinced I d see the dorsal coming my way. Jason Gorber, @filmfest_caA Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988) 52%(Photo by New Line Cinema/courtesy Everett Collection)The scene: Joey s aquatic demiseThe scare: My first experience with the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise was flipping through channels on TV and landing upon this scene. I was too young to watch a Nightmare film but also old enough to be fascinated by the mystique and terror surrounding them. Watching Freddy manipulate Joey and then burst through the bed had an indelible effect on me. It was my first experience with a horror movie and the terror it elicited was the foundation upon which my love of the genre was built. 1 2 Freddy s coming for you Jonathan Barkan, @JonathanBarkanThe Others (2001) 83%(Photo by Dimension Films/Courtesy Everett Collection)The scene: The face behind the veilThe scare: The scene where Grace (Nicole Kidman) interrupts her daughter Anne playing with toys while her head is obscured by a veil, only for Grace to then see a withered elderly face staring back at her from beneath the sheet, left me traumatized for nights afterward. I didn t look at curtains or any kind of hanging fabric in the same way for a while after that. The mixture of youthful innocence with the complete opposite end of the human life cycle was such an unsettling union for me and it still is. Lewis Knight, @ThatsOurLewisPet Sematary (1989) 51%(Photo by Paramount Pictures)The scene: A tendon momentThe scare: Pet Sematary confronts death and explores grief in ways I just wasn t used to given my identity in a culture that isn t necessarily afraid of it. But while there are many scenes that make that film an annual rewatch for me, the Achilles tendon scene is in fact THE scene that affected me the most as a child. Hiding under the bed, a reanimated Gage slices Jud s Achilles tendon as he approaches. You can see the deep wound and Jud s ankle split in detail as he falls. That one scene made me long -ump to the bed for months. And after rewatches, it still makes me shiver as I get ready to go to sleep. Kate Sanchez, @ohmymithrandirPoltergeist (1982) 86%(Photo by MGM/courtesy Everett Collection)The scene: Suburban invasionsThe scare: The Freeling family always reminded me a bit of my own – the suburban surroundings, the copious amounts of Star Wars toys that littered their home – and that made Poltergeist, despite all of the supernatural shenanigans, all too real for me. When that tree attacks Bobby, or when the skeletons emerge from their pool, as a young man, I felt like any of that could happen to me. Just the mere mention of the film’s title was enough to send shivers down my spine until I was a teenager. To this day, if I have it on too late at night, I have second thoughts about heading down to the basement. Mike Vanderbilt, Daily GrindhouseReturn to Oz (1985) 54%(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)The scene: A hallway of headsThe scare: The unofficial sequel to MGM’s Wizard of Oz, Walter Murch’s Return is a far cry from the brightly-colored 1939 musical. Not only does it have a much darker and fantastical narrative, this scene perfectly encapsulates why the film is the stuff of nightmares. In a bid to avoid being decapitated, Dorothy (Fairuza Balk) has to steal the Powder of Life from Princess Mombi (Jean Marsh) to escape. Unfortunately, she has to walk almost silently through a hallway of sleeping heads – and in full view of them – to get the powder. For extra pressure, it is placed inconveniently next to Mombi’s (real) head. Combined with David Shire’s powerful score, the slow-brewing tension from Dorothy’s delicate approach is blown apart by the ensuing screeching of multiple heads, not to mention being chased by a headless body. The whole sequence is terrifying as an adult but it’s horrifyingly out of place in a kid’s film – which is why it scars you for life. Katie Smith-Wong, @guitargalchinaThe Shining (1980) 84%(Photo by Warner Bros.)The scene: The woman in the bathroomThe scare: I refused to take a bath for a week. When I was seven, my father – much to the protestations of my mother – let me watch Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. When Jack Nicholson walks into that lime-green bathroom only to find the decrepit, rotting ghoul of an elderly woman cackling at him after he danced with and kissed her younger specter, I leapt as high as her laugh, and haven’t come down since.

Weekend Box Office Results: Halloween Kills Its Hybrid Release with Million Debut October 17, 2021
Adjusted Score: -1% Critics Consensus: Anchored by the incomparable Patrick Stewart, Picard departs from standard Starfleet protocol with a slower, serialized story, but like all great Star Trek it tackles timely themes with grace and makes for an exciting push further into the final frontier.
ry, as George Lucas would once again journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace. There was no question that this would be the movie event of the —Hold up. Before a single podracer would fire up that May, a little oddity dropped on March 31. It was too early to be a summer movie, too late to be a holiday movie – clearly no one knew what to do with this dystopian sci-fi action flick that was part Blade Runner, part anime, and part Intro to Existentialist Philosophy 101 (and it starred the dude from Point Break?) It was The Matrix, and it would explode like a neutron bomb, stealing little Anakin Skywalker’s thunder on its way to becoming the movie of 1999, a genre-bending instant classic with a powerfully iconic style that is still recognizable (and mimicked) today. It would be followed up by two mega-sequels in 2003 – The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions – that wouldn’t reach the heights of the original, but opened up a vast and intricate world that fans still obsess over.Now, 18 years and several animated shorts and MMORPGs later, Neo and Trinity are back in The Matrix Resurrections. With the release of the first official trailer, here’s what we know about our imminent future…Only One of the Wachowskis Is Returning to Direct(Photo by Timothy Hiatt/Getty Images)Ever since their 1996 directorial debut, Bound, Lana and Lilly Wachowski have been a double act. The siblings not only co-directed the entire original Matrix trilogy, but also Speed Racer, Jupiter Ascending, and Cloud Atlas (they also co-produced V for Vendetta and created the Netflix series Sense8). However, Matrix Resurrections will see Lana fly solo behind the camera for the first time. At this year’s CinemaCon, Lilly cited exhaustion from multiple projects, her transition, and the death of their parents for sapping her creative energy. I got out of my transition and was just completely exhausted because we had made Cloud Atlas and Jupiter Ascending, and the first season of Sense8 back-to-back-to-back,” said Lilly. “We were posting one and prepping the other at the exact same time. So you re talking about three 100-plus days of shooting for each project, and so, coming out and just being completely exhausted, my world was like, falling apart to some extent even while I was like, you know, cracking out of my egg. So I needed this time away from this industry. I needed to reconnect with myself as an artist and I did that by going back to school and painting and stuff. Neo and Trinity Are Back(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures) Despite the minor complication that Neo and Trinity both die in Revolutions, original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are returning for the fourth go-round (here’s a hint: The movie is called RESURRECTIONS). It’s also been reported that Jada Pinkett Smith will be reprising her role as Niobe, a Zion rebel and hovercraft captain, and Lambert Wilson will be returning as mysterious computer-based crime lord The Merovingian (though neither show up in the trailer). Notably absent are original stars Laurence Fishburne (who played Neo’s mentor, Morpheus) and Hugo Weaving (who played the villainous Agent Smith, a security program that eventually goes rogue). Weaving was actually interested in coming back, but scheduling conflicts made it impossible. As for Fishburne, there may be more behind the decision to not have him return…Is That Young Morpheus ?(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)One of the reasons Fishburne may not be back is that Morpheus as we know him is gone. In fact, the character is killed during the Matrix Online – an MMORPG that ran from 2005-2009 and is considered canon. Candyman star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is rumored to be playing either a young version of Morpheus (perhaps beaming in from another timeline to alter the future) or simply Morpheus with a newer, younger look. Note that in the trailer, Abdul-Mateen is clearly wearing very “Morpheus”-like pince-nez sunglasses, and there s a call-back to the dojo fights between Neo and Morpheus in the first film. Also, on the website WhatisTheMatrix.com, there were quick teaser shots of what looked to be computers “creating” Abdul-Mateen out of nothing – so maybe he’s not what he seems at all, even if Abdul-Mateen himself took to Instagram seemingly to confirm what everyone was thinking. 因为游戏的整体口碑虽说很出众，但《尼尔》手游在玩法上其实并没有太多令人眼前一亮的地方。回合制+抽卡这套万年不变的模式，实在很难让人快速兴奋起来。
