The Undertaker Returns to WWE to Face John Cena at WrestleMania 34 (Video)

The Undertaker Returns to WWE to Face John Cena at WrestleMania 34 (Video)
John Cena is for whom the bells tolled tonight: The Undertaker returned to WWE on Sunday, just in time for a *surprise* WrestleMania 34 match. (Those asterisks mean we totally knew this was coming.)

The “Blockers” star spent weeks lobbying the Dead Man for a fight at the pro-wrestling promotion’s biggest pay-per-view of the year, though no one had heard from ‘taker ’til tonight. Cena — and the WWE Universe — heard Mark Calaway loud and clear on Sunday evening.

Watch Undertaker’s latest WrestleMania entrance (and some in-ring action) below.

In case you didn’t already guess based on all the pageantry and our progression of Twitter videos above, Undertaker won the mid-show match quickly and handily. A huge choke-slam and one special pile-driver later was all she wrote for the wrestler-turned-actor.

No, it wasn’t quite a WrestleMania classic, but the Mercedes-Benz Superdome fans experienced a spectacle, ‘taker got some redemption, and Cena got enough screen time to remind us all that “Blockers” is out in theaters now.

Win-win-win, we suppose — especially considering Cena got to bury Elias just before his actual opponent rose into the New Orleans arena.

John Cena, Explained: How 20 Years of Professional Wrestling Prepared Him for a Hollywood Career

John Cena, Explained: How 20 Years of Professional Wrestling Prepared Him for a Hollywood Career
John Cena is a busy guy. Two days after hosting the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards last month, he returned to WWE to challenge the Undertaker to a match at WrestleMania. That might sound like something out of a professional-wrestling sentence generator, but it’s significant given what’s happening two days before that potential dream match: the release of “Blockers,” the wrestler-turned-actor’s most significant role yet.

The human body isn’t meant to endure the physical toll of suplexes and power bombs forever, not that many haven’t tried. Cena, now 40, has been in 2,215 matches throughout his nearly two-decade career. Like many grapplers before him — remember when you didn’t know The Rock’s real name? — he now sees a second act in, well, acting.

The two performers’ arcs mirror one another as much for their differences as for their similarities: Dwayne Johnson tried his hand at comedy before emerging as an action star,

April Fools’ Day: Netflix, Redbox, and the Criterion Collection Joke About Seth Rogen and Jim Jarmusch

It’s April Fools’ Day, and you know what that means: The headlines today are slightly less troubling than they are the other 364 days of the year. In 2018, that includes Netflix acquiring Seth Rogen — which is to say, “full ownership of his personal autonomy” — Redbox announcing walk-up movie theaters, and the Criterion Collection re-releasing Jim Jarmusch’s “Stranger Than Paradise” the way he always meant for it to be seen: in glorious 3D.

Netflix Acquires Seth Rogen

“World-renowned Canadian person, prolific marijuana-doer, and winner of the 2015 MTV Movie Award for ‘Best Kiss’ Seth Q. Rogen has entered into a lifetime deal to transfer full ownership of his personal autonomy to Netflix, Inc.

“’I have known Seth for many years,’ said senior Netflix Development Executive Jareth Chumley. ‘After a wrap party in late 2017, Seth approached me and said something like, “Jesus Fucking Christ Jarbear, I would sell my soul for a fuckin enchilada right now.

Neil Young Premieres Trippy New Film 'Paradox' at SXSW

Neil Young Premieres Trippy New Film 'Paradox' at SXSW
"We made this in the spirit of lighthearted fun," Daryl Hannah said, staring out into crowd packed in to Austin's Paramount Theater. "So we hope you can relax your brains." A mellowed-out frontal lobe is pretty much a prerequisite for Paradox, the actor-turned-filmmaker's free-form collaboration with boyfriend Neil Young and his backing band Promise of the Real that the couple premiered at SXSW last night. Shot on both Super 8 and on Hannah's phone over four days in the Rockies between tour dates (and while everybody adjusted to the high altitude), it's a funny,

Damsel review – Robert Pattinson goes a-crooning in twisty Old West quest drama

Pattinson cast off more of his matinee-idol past as a gauche galoot seeking his bride in the Zellner brothers’ grotesque, beautiful and unpredictable movie

While the western as a living genre continues to fade into a folk memory, the postmodern neo-western – melancholic, world-weary and demystifyingly ironic – is well established as its inheritor. Jim Jarmusch arguably provided the modern template for this strain with his 1995 Dead Man, and the British director John Maclean rode in that film’s wake with his recent Slow West. Jacques Audiard looks as if he’ll be continuing the tradition with his forthcoming The Sisters Brothers, based on the supremely knowing, not to say Coens-y novel by Patrick deWitt. Meanwhile, playing in the Berlin competition, here is Damsel from eccentric film-making duo David and Nathan Zellner.

The Texan brothers weighed in with a quest narrative with their last film, Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, about a young

‘Damsel’ Review: Mia Wasikowska and a Pony Rule Zellner Brothers’ Poetic Take on ‘Blazing Saddles’ With a Feminist Twist — Sundance 2018

‘Damsel’ Review: Mia Wasikowska and a Pony Rule Zellner Brothers’ Poetic Take on ‘Blazing Saddles’ With a Feminist Twist — Sundance 2018
The mad science behind the filmmaking trickery of Austin sibling directors David and Nathan Zellner is that they make wise movies that seem like superficial larks. From their outrageous suburban comedy “Goliath” all the way through the surreal meta “Fargo” riff “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter,” the Zellners excel at transforming absurd circumstances into trenchant observations of human behavior. With the wildly adventurous “Damsel,” they conjure a kooky Old West setting with antics straight out of “Blazing Saddles,” unearthing a poetic vision of desperate men and the woman who wants nothing to do with them.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Damsel’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Damsel’
In “Damsel,” a deadpan minimalist Western comedy written and directed by David and Nathan Zellner (it’s the sort of movie that provokes more mental chuckles than actual laughs), one of the ongoing dog-whistle jokes is that the movie packs in every last trope and cliché you’d expect to see in a vintage Western. Towering mesas out of Monument Valley. A handsome stranger wandering into a saloon, where he’s surrounded by varmints with bad teeth. A horseback odyssey across the mountains in pursuit of an outlaw. A declaration of romantic devotion pure enough for John Ford. A Native American arrow zipping out of the air. Shootouts and hangings. A shack blown up with dynamite.

None of this is parody, exactly; it’s all served up straight and neat, with the most lavish and stately of cinematography. What nudges “Damsel” gently off kilter is the way that the desperate, scrambling characters

Criterion in April 2018: Virgin Suicides, Dead Man and a Bevy of Bergman

Apologies for the lateness of this posting, but since it's just you and me here, devoted fans of classy and extremely well-presented home video, allow me to say: the Criterion Collection's lineup is getting more and more exciting! In April 2018, the company plans to release two strikingly different black and white films: Leo McCarey's wonderful comedy The Awful Truth, starring Cary Grant, Irene Dunne and Ralph Bellamy; and Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man, his first period picture, starring Johnny Depp. Sofia Coppola's strikingly subduedl The Virgin Suicides and Sergei Parajanov's The Color of Pomegranates -- about which I know nothing -- and a bevy of Bergman. The latter is part of Criterion's no-frills Eclipse line and will allow fans of the fab Ingrid Berman to...

‘The Virgin Suicides’ & ‘Dead Man’ Coming To Criterion This Spring

The good folks at The Criterion Collection keep coming up with ways to get us to part with our hard earned dollar, and their April lineup is designed to do just that. So let’s roll up our sleeves and dive right in…

Kicking things off is Jim Jarmusch‘s cult favorite “Dead Man.” The Johnny Depp starring existential western won’t be overflowing with extras — poetry readings, interviews, select scene audio commentary — but you’ll want to pay top dollar for the new, 4K restoration so you can soak up every frame of Robby Müller‘s exquisite cinematography, and hear every note of Neil Young‘s score.

Jarmusch pics see the world via Fortissimo
CANNES -- Fortissimo Films has extended its relationship with Jim Jarmusch, with the Dutch sales company taking on international theatrical, video and television distribution of the director's film library, the company said Wednesday at MIPCOM. Fortissimo first worked with Jarmusch last year on Coffee and Cigarettes, a collection of short movies in which various celebrities discuss the pros and cons of caffeine and nicotine. It was released in the United States through United Artists. Included in the deal -- which was negotiated by Fortissimo co-chairmen Michael Werner and Wouter Barendrecht and ICM's Bart Walker and Stacey Smith on behalf of Jarmusch -- are Permanent Vacation (1980), Stranger Than Paradise (1983), Down by Law (1986), Mystery Train (1989), Night on Earth (1991) and Dead Man (1995). The deal was formally completed this week, allowing the Fortissimo Films team to present the Jarmusch library to buyers at MIPCOM.
