Great Job, Internet!: The Rock has beef with the emoji that looks most like him

29 June 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Today, the trailer for the new Jumanji movie was released, revealing a vast new video-game lore and a bunch of zany hi-jinks from the cast, which includes Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The subtitle of the new movie is Welcome To The Jungle, which a few Rock superfans noted was also the title of The Rock’s sub-par 2003 action flick The Rundown until it got changed late in the game. This inspired some good-natured ribbing on America’s favorite forum for good-natured ribbing, Twitter!

Now why does the new Jumanji film featuring @TheRock sound and look familiar? »

Are we suffering from Dwayne Johnson franchise fatigue?

29 June 2017 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras is suffering from Dwayne Johnson franchise fatigue…

We spend so much time analyzing franchises. That’s mainly because they make up such a high percentage of blockbuster cinema. If you look at the top 10 films of 2017 globally, only two films don’t fall under the franchise tag: The Boss Baby, an animated family film that is as close to the formulaic world of franchises as any movie can get and the Japanese anime Your Name. Everything else is a franchise film fare.

While discussing the bombs of 2017, Baywatch was brought up. The film drowned quickly at the box office and was universally panned. Like any good armchair pundit, we tried to assign blame for the failure. Most attributed the failure to poor marketing or the fact that Baywatch isn’t exactly a brand that audiences were hoping to see adapted to the big screen. The more I thought about, »

‘Doctor Who’ Review: The ‘End of the World’ Only Delayed Us From Getting Back to Missy

27 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Doctor Who” Season 10, Episode 7, “The Pyramid at the End of the World,” contains spoilers.]

The Rundown

Last week’s excellent episode played mind games with us and “Doctor Who’s” characters when it was revealed that everyone’s journey that we were following (in that episode anyway) was fake, just part of an elaborate simulation of Earth by alien beings. While we know that they were all part of a program, it was nevertheless heartbreaking to see these “people,” who definitely seemed to have gained sentience, realize their lives were a lie. We also learned that the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) was supposed to execute Missy (Michelle Gomez), but instead agreed to watch over her for 1,000 years, presumably in the vault. We say “presumably” because, well, when Steven Moffat is writing, sneaky surprises might be in store.

Snapchat Shows: Inside the Plan to Reimagine TV for the Mobile Era

23 May 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Elisabeth Murdoch said goodbye to the family business in the wake of the News Corp. phone-hacking scandal in 2014, there was considerable anticipation regarding her next career move. The safe bet was that she’d find something to do in the television industry, where she had cranked out global hit series formats from “MasterChef” to “Big Brother” for Shine Group, which she’d sold to her father for $675 million.

But when Murdoch resurfaced in 2015, she focused her programming savvy not on TV but on a single digital platform: Snapchat.

Her new venture, Vertical Networks, has produced only for the Venice, Calif.-based messaging app, and includes a trio of so-called Snapchat Shows, a short-form video format exclusive to the Snapchat platform. As Murdoch sees it, the seismic shift a new generation of younger viewers is making from TV to mobile can no longer be ignored.

Dwayne Johnson Isn’t Your Average Superstar: How The Rock Has Built a Career With Smart Choices

2 May 2017 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Like most famous people, Dwayne Johnson’s Wikipedia page includes a nifty sidebar that includes bare bones facts, like birthday and age, with a couple of lines reserved for “occupation.” Johnson’s “occupation” line is almost amusingly slim — it simply reads, “Actor, producer, singer, professional wrestler,” which is an understated way of saying “this guy does a lot.” And it doesn’t even mention his best-selling memoir, or his charity work, and “professional wrestler” hardly indicates the tremendous success he’s had in the ring.

And “actor”? That’s a very concise tribute to his blockbuster career on the big screen, one that’s amounted to dozens of credits and an estimated lifetime box office gross (domestic only!) that totals over $2.7 billion. With Johnson toplining the early summer’s biggest hit so far, the box office-dominating “Fate of the Furious” and a non-stop barrage of other features on the way, »
