‘Saved By The Bell’ Pop-Up Changes The Game For Authorized Fan-Driven Experiences

Marketing machines use pop culture-driven immersive experiences to fuel the hype of studios big-time titles. Warner Bros. has been on top of its game with a frightening It house as well as an Easter egg-filled maze for Ready Player One. When the cult hit Twin Peaks was revived by Showtime last year, Los Angeles became the home of the Roadhouse, the popular bar in the series. During SXSW, HBO set up a fully operating Westworld complete with a saloon and in-character “hosts&#8221…

‘Room to Dream’ Cracks Open David Lynch’s Mind, In His Own Words

Recently and under the influence of alcohol, a shall-go-unnamed collaborator of David Lynch’s confided in me a telling detail: true though he is to himself as both an artist and human being, the Lynch persona is curated — not fake, per se, but cultivated to further his success and maintain much-desired privacy. That I’m even bothering to share this is proof enough of the former, and perhaps whatever interest it yields would account for the latter. We can picture (and certainly hear) the man at the snap of a finger, but does that familiarity make him easier to approach? Or is there only an air of intimidation surrounding anyone who’s grown mythic? I think you can answer that for yourself. Still, could all be a case of repeating — perpetuating — an outsider’s mischaracterization. Maybe I’ve got their phrasing off. It could be that my memory’s slipped entirely.

Laura Dern: ‘We All Felt Wrenched’ by Sexual Abuse Story of HBO’s ‘The Tale’

  • The Wrap
Laura Dern: ‘We All Felt Wrenched’ by Sexual Abuse Story of HBO’s ‘The Tale’
This story about Laura Dern first appeared in the Miniseries/Movies issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

It was one thing for Laura Dern to play a woman who suppressed the memory of her first sexual experience for years in HBO’s “The Tale.” It was another to have the woman who lived through those circumstances in real life sitting in the director’s chair.

“In a word? Weird,” Dern said when asked what it was like playing out director Jennifer Fox’s personal experience with Fox directing. “Super odd. Helpful, healing, weird, confronting, delicate — it was all those things.”

In order to “make it feel just right,” Dern said, she and Fox had had lunches, dinners and phone conversations. “It’s her truth, yes, and I have to play her, but I also have to feel it in my bones and understand it, and that takes its own journey

How Antonio Banderas Overcame His Fear of Playing Hometown Legend Pablo Picasso

How Antonio Banderas Overcame His Fear of Playing Hometown Legend Pablo Picasso
A version of this story about Antonio Banderas was first published in the Miniseries/Movies issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

When “Genius” producer Kenneth Biller went to the Spanish town of Málaga to visit Antonio Banderas, he quickly learned the hierarchy. The Andalusian coastal city, he was told on his way in from the airport, has two local heroes who are particularly esteemed by the town in which they were born.

“They explained to me, in Spanish, ‘El primero is Picasso,'” Biller said. “‘El segundo is Antonio.'”

And No. 2 played No. 1. In “Genius: Picasso,” Banderas takes on a role that had long haunted him, and one he’d spent years avoiding, of the protean artist who cast a huge shadow in his hometown, where he grew up during the reign of dictator Francisco Franco.

“Picasso was enormous in Málaga,” Banderas said. “We didn’t have many heroes.

Kyle MacLachlan Was Confused by ‘Twin Peaks: The Return,’ Too: ‘I Couldn’t Believe the Premises’

Kyle MacLachlan Was Confused by ‘Twin Peaks: The Return,’ Too: ‘I Couldn’t Believe the Premises’
If “Twin Peaks: The Return” left you a little baffled, you’re not alone. The 18-episode revival was enigmatic even by David Lynch’s standards, so much so that even its star had difficulty following the surreal goings-on: Kyle MacLachlan tells TheWrap that, when he first read about what his character(s) would be doing, he “couldn’t believe the premises.”

“At first I imagined that David was going to be doing something along the lines of what he did before,” said MacLachlan, who worked with Lynch on “Dune” and “Blue Velvet” in addition to the original “Twin Peaks.”

“But very early on, he gave me some scenes to read at his house, and I couldn’t believe the premises. I was really excited and challenged by what I was being asked to do — because these are characters that I had never done before, and if I don’t deliver

Will the Emmys continue its British love affair with Starz’s ‘Howards End’ in Best Limited Series?

Expect to see the Starz program “Howards End” reap a Best Limited Series Emmy nom on July 12, along with nominations across the board for its actors and below-the-line talent. The series debuted stateside in May, 26 years after the acclaimed 1992 film adaptation that garnered nine Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Director (James Ivory) and won three including Best Actress for Emma Thompson.

Based on the acclaimed 1910 novel by E.M. Forster, this new spin on the timeless classic was adapted by Oscar champ Kenneth Lonergan (“Manchester by the Sea”). It stars Hayley Atwell and Philippa Coulthard as the independent and unconventional Schlegel sisters navigating their way through turn-of-the-century England, whose lives become intertwined with the wealthy Wilcox family and the working-class Bast family. The series also stars Emmy winners Julia Ormond and Tracey Ullman, alongside Matthew Macfadyen, Joseph Quinn and Alex Lawther.

‘Twin Peaks’: Mark Frost Takes Us Inside the Four-Year Process of Writing a 500-Page Script Over Skype With David Lynch

‘Twin Peaks’: Mark Frost Takes Us Inside the Four-Year Process of Writing a 500-Page Script Over Skype With David Lynch
More than perhaps any other show, David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: The Return” would seem like the sharpest ice pick chipping away at the concept that TV, by its very nature, is a writer’s medium. Beyond the director’s distinct visual approach and masterful sound design being responsible for delivering so much of the emotion, dread, and atmosphere of “Twin Peaks,” the narrative itself can, at times, feel obtuse as it doesn’t easily piece together in the way we’ve become accustomed to with serialized TV.

Yet it’s a mistake to assume that Lynch and co-writer/co-creator Mark Frost’s 500-plus-page script for the third season was simply the canvas on which Lynch painted. For four-and-a-half years the two longtime collaborators painstakingly wrote 18 new episodes that balance the continuation of all the old characters’ storylines, while exploring a vast and layered world that flowed from the first

David Lynch Compares His Two Biggest Film Failures, Still Prefers Movie Theaters Over Television

David Lynch Compares His Two Biggest Film Failures, Still Prefers Movie Theaters Over Television
David Lynch knows a thing or two about bombing with critics and audiences. The director’s 1984 “Dune” adaptation was fraught with tension behind the scenes, so much so that Lynch tried to take his name off his own film. The science-fiction epic was a notorious box office failure, but its poor reception was nothing compared to the vitriol Lynch faced at Cannes 1992 with the debut of “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.”

Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” prequel film was ripped to shreds by critics at the time of its premiere. Even some of the director’s most ardent supporters found themselves questioning their love of the auteur. Quentin Tarantino reacted to the film by famously saying, “David Lynch had disappeared so far up his own ass that I have no desire to see another David Lynch movie until I hear something different.”

Turns Out Twin Peaks Season 4 Is Still A Possibility

Twin Peaks may be gone for the foreseeable future, but fans shouldn't rule out the possibility the show will eventually return for Season 4 just yet. That's coming straight from the source as David Lynch hinted in an interview with Deadline he may not be as finished with the franchise as everyone initially believed:

“Well, for right now, you could say I don’t want to talk about that.”

Hinting at something more but keeping details under wraps is almost always a tease that talks are underway, and while I have no way of confirming that, I'm not why Lynch would tease people if there's no shot at the series returning. Lynch added later some high praise for cable television, and mentioned that whatever his next project may be, it'll likely be on TV:

“Feature films have fallen on hard times these days. And it’s sad, but it’s the reality.

David Lynch & Kyle MacLachlan Talk About Possible Return To ‘Twin Peaks’

David Lynch is a slave to his own ideas. As odd as that may sound, the filmmaker has never been one to explain his work, or even dive deep into how certain scenes or lines were created. Instead, he credits “ideas.” And when it came to the revival of “Twin Peaks,” the director can’t explain where the genesis of the ideas came from. They just presented themselves and that was that.

Pulling Triple-Duty For ‘Twin Peaks’ Revival, Kyle MacLachlan On The Prospect Of Another ‘Return’

David Lynch discovered Kyle MacLachlan when the actor was in his early twenties, with no TV or movie credits to his name. Lynch took a gamble and cast MacLachlan in his sci-fi flop Dune (1984), taking the actor with him to his next project, the controversial 1987 arthouse smash Blue Velvet. Though MacLachlan went on to work with other directors, the actor has remained synonymous with Lynch, largely due to the cult '90s show Twin Peaks, in which MacLachlan played quirky…

David Lynch Launches Clothing Store on Amazon to Sell His Weird and Wonderful T-Shirts

David Lynch Launches Clothing Store on Amazon to Sell His Weird and Wonderful T-Shirts
Never content with just being one of the greatest filmmakers in history, David Lynch is expanding his career options and getting into the clothing business. The director already has his own coffee brand and has created “Twin Peaks”-themed beers and skateboards, and now he’s selling personally-designed t-shirts on Amazon. Lynch’s store, titled Studio: David Lynch, has 25 t-shirts up for sale, each priced at $26 and featuring sizes ranging from small to triple Xl.

The shirts feature the artwork of Lynch, which means they are all as weird and transfixing as you’d expect from the mind behind “Inland Empire,” “Mulholland Drive,” and “Rabbits.” Some of the shirts feature doodle designs Lynch drew of animals such as a dinosaur, an octopus, and a dragonfly, while others are the kind of creatures that feel like only Lynch could dream up. The “Turkey Cheese” and “Chicken Head Blue” shirts, for instance,

‘Hereditary’ Shocker: A24’s Brilliant Marketing Is Responsible For the Best Horror Movie Twist in Years

‘Hereditary’ Shocker: A24’s Brilliant Marketing Is Responsible For the Best Horror Movie Twist in Years
[Editor’s note: This article includes some spoilers for the film “Hereditary.”]

Reacting to Ari Aster’s “Hereditary” on social media, Barry Jenkins noted that the film included “one of the most visceral moments” he ever experienced in a movie theater. The “Moonlight” director did not mention which scene he was talking about, but anyone who contributed to the film’s $13 million opening weekend knows there’s one specific event that leaves you so shocked it’s hard to pick your jaw up off the floor. It occurs at the end of the first act and marks a horror movie twist to rival “Psycho.”

Annie Graham (Toni Collette) has forced her teenage son Peter (Alex Wolff) to bring the family’s youngest daughter Charlie (Milly Shaprio) to a high school house party. The emotionally detached Peter leaves his sister alone at the party so he can go off to smoke weed with a girl he’s trying to impress. Charlie ends up

The 4 Best TV Shows of 2018 So Far

Samuel Brace with the four best TV shows of 2018 so far…

2018 certainly got off to a slow start in the realm of high-quality TV. With years past treating us to some phenomenal offerings early on in proceedings, 2018 has seen a number of these shows pushed further down the line, leaving the opening months of the year rather baron by comparison. It was indeed looking rather bleak for a while but eventually things started to pick up, eventually, quality products arrived and audiences have since been treated to some truly excellent TV. Now that we are well into the sixth month of 2018, I suppose it’s as good a time as any to consider what has so far been and to try and present a look at the best of what’s been conjured by some of the brightest talents in the industry. So, without any further delay, here are the

Ang Lee Gave ‘Stranger Things’ Star David Harbour a Note to Act ‘More Handsome’

Ang Lee Gave ‘Stranger Things’ Star David Harbour a Note to Act ‘More Handsome’
David Harbour recalled some of the most critical direction he’s ever received in an interview with Kyle Maclachlan for Variety’s “Actors on Actors,” presented by Shutterstock. While the pair swapped notes they’ve accumulated from different directors, Harbour shared one particularly memorable comment Ang Lee made while working on the 2005 film “Brokeback Mountain.”

“That was one of the worst notes I think I’ve ever received,” Harbour said. “I had one scene, and I came in on coverage, and he was like, ‘more handsome,’ and I was like, ‘Wow.’”

Maclachlan contributed past remarks from “Twin Peaks” creator-director David Lynch,
