The Walking Dead’s Decision Behind Those Three Big Deaths

The Walking Dead’s Decision Behind Those Three Big Deaths Not everyone makes it out of The Walking Dead alive: the title of the popular zombie drama could tell you that. But the most recent episode of TWD, the penultimate installment of season 9, featured some especially grisly deaths that left viewers shocked. Spoilers ahead!

Episode 15 of Season 9, “The Calm Before,” revealed that the Whisperers and their leader Alpha killed 10 characters by decapitation, then stuck their heads on spikes and organized them in a row.

“If the alpha doesn’t assert herself, then there’s chaos.”

This is exceptionally brutal stuff, even for The Walking Dead, but the three murders that drew more gasps from viewers than the others were those of Tara, Henry, and Enid. Both because their deaths proved just how ruthless Alpha really is, and because those characters don’t die in the original version of this storyline as seen in The Walking Dead comics, Ezekiel and Rosita did.

After the episode aired, The Walking Dead director and co-executive producer Greg Nicotero opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about the decision to kill Tara, Henry, and Enid and the choice to deviate from the comic book source material, saying,

“When we break the story, and when the writers are in the writers room, we don’t always know when an event is coming. A lot of times, we’ll find out at the very beginning of the season where some of the landmarks are. But we had no idea who it was going to be or when it was going to be until probably two or three episodes before we shot.”

Nicotero says that the deaths felt “random and uncontrollable,” because Alpha didn’t choose to kill people based on any personal vendetta against them: she killed to kill, to send a message to the people of Alexandria, the Hilltop, the Kingdom, the Sanctuary, and Oceanside. Nicotero continued,

“First of all, the deaths are at the hands of a human being instead of walkers, so that immediately makes it different… You’re constantly reminded that man’s inhumanity toward man is the most horrific thing that can occur. There’s a real brutality to it.”

Nicotero revealed that the creative team had to think about how the deaths in this episode would affect other characters, and that pushed them to pick Tara, Henry, and Enid. As he explained, there is a “very specific reason to lose” Henry due to his relationship with his adoptive parents Carol and Ezekiel, as well as with Daryl Dixon. As far as Tara is concerned, her growing power at the Hilltop influenced the decision to kill her off. And in a somewhat similar vein, Enid’s developing relationship with Alden was also a motivating factor.

The critical consensus regarding the brutal episode has been positive, with Den of Geek calling “The Calm Before” quote, a “stellar exercise in taking a television show and making it look like an event.” CBR called it “easily one of the best episodes of what’s become one of The Walking Dead’s best seasons” thanks to the heads-on-spikes sequence, which is bound to impact the future of the show in a massive way.

Meanwhile, Nicotero commended Alpha actress Samantha Morton on her chilling performance in the episode, telling the Hollywood Reporter,

“Samantha has done such an amazing job this season. She so embodies everything that the show needs and wants.”

Though these deaths will likely leave a hole in the hearts of many Walking Dead loyals, they do help to thin the very thick cast of a series that isn’t going anywhere any time soon. AMC has already ordered a 10th season of the show, with CEO Josh Sapan saying in September 2018 that the network plans to keep the Walking Dead IP alive for another decade through all sorts of media, from the flagship series to spin-off shows to films and additional comic book issues.

Cutting down the number of characters on screen is a necessary evil, as it will allow the show to continue refining its focus moving forward. We know it’s difficult to say goodbye to characters, some of whom have been around for years, but perhaps these 10 new Walking Dead victims had to fall so their fellow apocalypse survivors could flourish.

What Rotten Tomatoes Reviews Are Saying About Shazam!

What Rotten Tomatoes Reviews Are Saying About Shazam! The teasers for Shazam! promised a lighthearted, laugh-filled adventure, and had everyone hoping the film could bring some brightness to the mostly gloomy DC Extended Universe. Now the reviews for Shazam! are officially in, and we finally know whether the film soared or sank.

Spoiler alert! With a 92 percent fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes as of the making of this video, it’s pretty clear that Warner Bros. managed to capture some real magic this time around. Let’s dive in and see what the critics had to say.

Too many films seem to forget that people often go to the movies because they want to have fun. Well, thank goodness for Shazam!, because critics agree that the movie has plenty of fun, and then some.

ScreenCrush’s Matt Singer said,

“It’s an escape from your troubles. You feel good when it’s over.”

And Forbes contributor Mark Hughes said,

“The film is such a feel-good family-friendly joyously exciting and amusing production, people will keep recommending it to their friends and loved ones, and many will return for second and maybe even third viewings.”

ComingSoon.net’s Alan Cerny, meanwhile, compared Shazam! to a warm, happy puppy.

“Shazam! invites everyone to have a good time. It doesn’t have a mean-spirited bone in its body. Shazam! has a big, goofy smile on its face, and you can’t help but smile back. This is a puppy dog of a movie.”

And Beatrice Verhoeven of TheWrap said

“Shazam! is such an unexpected joy from start to finish at a time when Hollywood is choking to death on all the superhero films that studios keep ramming down its throat, here comes one that looks at the genre in a different light and reconceives it on a human level.”

Speaking of that human level, the movie isn’t just fun, it’s also surprisingly moving thanks to a story that’s as much about Billy Batson’s search for belonging as it is superheroics.

Alex Abad-Santos at Vox wrote that the film understands

“…that humor and comedy are ways to approach sensitive ideas, like children talking about feeling unwanted after being abandoned by their parents, or what it’s like to live with a disability.”

Keep watching the video to see the rest of what Rotten Tomatoes reviews are saying about Shazam!

Watch This Before You See the New Pet Sematary Remake

Watch This Before You See the New Pet Sematary Remake Pet Sematary is the book that Stephen King thought might be too horrific to publish. Its adaptation in a terrifying film in 1989 further cemented its place among the King canon, and now we have an all-new adaptation. But what about this version of Pet Sematary sets it apart?

For many Stephen King fans, there are non-scary books, there are scary books, and then there’s Pet Sematary. The novel follows the Creed family as they move to rural Maine so that the patriarch, Louis, can take a job as the head of the University of Maine’s medical service. Their new house is beside a road frequented by fast, heavy trucks that often claim the lives of local pets. As a result, neighborhood children have established a pet cemetery in the woods, complete with the misspelled sign that makes up the book’s title. When his daughter Ellie’s cat, Church, is run over and killed, Louis and his neighbor Jud Crandall bury the cat near the cemetery… but Church soon returns to the Creed family home.

However, something’s not right about the resurrected family cat.

Just as Jud begins to regret bringing the cat back to life, another tragedy strikes the family. The Creeds’ youngest son, Gage, is hit by another speeding truck, and Louis, shaken by grief and his new understanding of the pet cemetery, begins to ponder the unthinkable.

Watch to know more about the new Pet Sematary remake!

Small Details You Missed In The Stranger Things 3 Trailer

Small Details You Missed In The Stranger Things 3 Trailer The full-length trailer for the third season of Stranger Things has finally arrived, showing our young heroes gearing up for what should be one of the most memorable summers of their lives. And it probably will be, just not for the reasons they may have hoped.

Stranger Things 3 takes place roughly six months after the events of the second season. The trailer opens with the gang welcoming Dustin home from camp by way of a little Eleven-assisted prank.

The trailer doesn’t outright say what year the third season is set in, instead cluing us in to what time it is with Motley Crue’s 1985 hit “Home Sweet Home” playing on Dustin’s boombox. You can also see the current year on Dustin’s hat.

The name of the camp Dustin’s returning from, “Camp Knowhere,” seems like it might be a reference to a location in the Guardians of the Galaxy, a franchise with its own nostalgic ties to the ’80s, from a writer-director who’s made his fair share of slimy, Stranger Things-esque creature features.

Joining the cast for season 3 is Cary Elwes, who would hold a special place in the hearts of certain film fans forever even if he had never done anything but portray the lovelorn Westley in the 1987 classic The Princess Bride.

“As you wish.”

Elwes’ role isn’t so lovable this time around; he plays Mayor Kline, previously revealed in promotional materials for Stranger Things 3 as the shady driving force behind the construction of the new Starcourt Mall.

Character descriptions from the new season have described the character as, quote, “handsome, slick, and sleazy… your classic ’80s politician, more concerned with his own image than with the people of the small town he governs.” So on top of all the other monstrous activity, it looks like season 3 will have something of a political angle at work.

Also joining the cast this season is Jake Busey as Bruce, a writer for the Hawkins Post. But he’s no crusading journalist seeking to expose Mayor Kline’s corruption. His character description pegs him as a man of questionable morals with a sick sense of humor. We see only the briefest of shots featuring the character in the trailer, and he looks sick, all right. Keep watching th video to see more of the small details you missed in the Stranger Things 3 trailer!

5 Movies Marvel Has Planned After Endgame

5 Movies Marvel Has Planned After Endgame Considering it’s practically the biggest movie franchise in history, it can be pretty hard to keep track of what’s going on in the MCU—and what’s coming up. And while Marvel’s next phases are still shrouded in secrecy, we do know a few of the upcoming projects slated for release.

In early 2018, writer/director James Gunn confirmed that the third installment of the ridiculously successful Guardians of the Galaxy franchise would be on its way in 2020, and a few months later, he announced via Twitter that a script had been completed. But an unexpected turn of events threatened to kill the film entirely: amid a kerfuffle over some years-old, highly inappropriate tweets made by Gunn, Disney decided to part ways with the director. It was heartbreaking news for fans, not to mention the cast, who uniformly stood behind Gunn in a joint public statement. Eventually, it was reported that the House of Mouse were to use Gunn’s script, but would not bring him back as director.

Luckily for Guardians fans everywhere, Disney announced in March 2019 that Gunn would be rejoining the Marvel universe after all, for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Unfortunately, the whole firing scandal means the project’s release date — which was originally set for 2020 — is now up in the air, but that seems a small price to pay for Gunn’s triumphant return to the director’s chair.

He may have been last seen crumbling to dust in the arms of Tony Stark at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, but the drama of that moment was tempered slightly by the fact that we all knew Tom Holland’s Peter Parker would be back to web-sling another day. It was known well in advance of the character’s dusting that Holland would be appearing in more than one Spidey solo film, and sure enough, it was later confirmed that Spider-Man: Far from Home would take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. This sequel will see young Parker going on a European excursion with his classmates — a relaxing sojourn which turns not-so-relaxing when Nick Fury and Maria Hill show up to enlist him in the fight against a team of mysterious elemental monsters.

Joining the cast is Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio, a longtime Spider-Man nemesis in the comics who — if the trailer is to be believed — is actually fighting on the side of the good guys… at first, at least. But fans know that Mysterio is prone to whipping up all manner of intricate illusions in support of his criminal schemes, so there’s a good chance there may be more to his relationship to Spidey’s new foes than meets the eye. Keep watching the video to see the rest of the 5 movies Marvel has planned after Endgame!

Watch This Before You See Avengers: Endgame

Watch This Before You See Avengers: Endgame As we buckle in for the forthcoming premiere of Avengers: Endgame, there are a lot of moving parts to keep track of: after all, we’re talking about 21 movies over about a decade. It’s the perfect time to look back over the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and go over everything fans should have in mind before scanning that ticket, ordering some popcorn, and settling in for Marvel’s cinematic event of the year. A quick word of warning: spoilers for Captain Marvel ahead!

One consistent thread throughout many of the MCU’s films before Infinity War has been the impending approach of Thanos. We saw elements of the Mad Titan all the way back in the first Avengers movie, when we caught a shot of his grinning face in the mid-credits scene. He played a role in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise as well and reappeared at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron when he donned an Infinity Gauntlet.

Infinity War brought Thanos crashing into the primary narrative, as the big purple one traipsed around the galaxy, gathering up the Infinity Stones. He already had the Power Stone when the film began, and his encounter with Thor and the surviving Asgardians in Infinity War’s opening moments left him with the Tesseract, which hid the Space Stone. He proceeded from there to get the Reality Stone on Knowhere, the Soul Stone on Vormir after sacrificing Gamora, and the Time Stone after Doctor Strange surrendered it to him on Titan. Last but not least, he headed to Wakanda, where he plucked the Mind Stone out of Vision’s forehead, completed his gauntlet, and snapped his fingers, wiping out half of the life in the universe in what has been dubbed “the Decimation.”

Over time, the Avengers lineup has come to include characters like War Machine, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Falcon, and Spider-Man, but it all started with the Big Six. As The Avengers played out, a nucleus of heroes slowly came together, including Hulk, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Thor, Black Widow, and Captain America. 2016’s Civil War saw the group split, with Cap, Hawkeye, and Black Widow heading off into exile in the aftermath.

While almost everyone was involved in Infinity War, the heroes weren’t fully unified throughout the film. But as savvy fans quickly realized, as the dust from the Decimation settled, not one of the original Avengers had been dusted. Half of the universe’s population may be gone, but it sure is convenient that all six of the original Avengers survived the dusting… isn’t it? Make sure you continue to watch this before you see Avengers: Endgame!

Small Details You Missed In Us

Small Details You Missed In Us Nobody expected Us to be a simple slasher film. On the surface, it’s a movie about evil doppelgängers and all the horror scenarios you can dream up with that kind of premise. Plus scissors. Scissors suck.
But now that it’s here, it’s clear that there are multiple layers that might get lost in a casual viewing. So let’s to dig into all the small details it had to offer. Get ready, because we’re un-tethering the mysteries behind Us. Spoilers ahead.
If you were paying attention, you might have noticed that the entire plot of Us was spelled out in the opening seconds of the film.
After that long title shot with the rabbits, Us opens on a TV playing a commercial for the Hands Across America movement. On either side of the TV are VHS tapes, which included The Man with Two Brains, The Goonies, and C.H.U.D. . It turns out that when you put those all together, you have the movie Us.
In The Man with Two Brains, Steve Martin stars as a brain surgeon who telepathically connects with a disembodied brain in a jar. Like in Us, it deals with a mental connection between two physical forms.
In The Goonies, of course, the kids’ adventure leads them underground just like Adelaide when she follows her doppelgänger into the tunnels below the surface. One of the lines that Red says in the climax of the film actually comes directly from The Goonies. She says, “It’s our time. It’s our time up there,” which echoes one of Mikey’s most famous phrases:
“Down here it’s our time. It’s our time down here.”
Finally, C.H.U.D., or “Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers”, deals with mutants living in the sewers under New York City who begin attacking people on the surface. The parallels there probably don’t need much explanation.

4 Best And 4 Worst Things About Us

4 Best And 4 Worst Things About Us Us, writer/director Jordan Peele’s much-anticipated follow-up to his horror masterpiece Get Out, is finally here, and it was worth the wait. What starts as an apparently simple home invasion fright fest quickly evolves into something bigger, as Peele spins bigger and bigger ideas into a movie with bigger and bigger implications. The result is a conceptually weighty horror film that keeps you guessing and thinking right up to the very last minute, and that means we’ve got plenty to talk about. With that in mind, here are the best and worst things about Us.

Oh, and it should go without saying, but there are SPOILERS AHEAD for the entire movie. You’ve been warned.

Horror cinema has a huge capacity for pushing actors to their emotional and physical limits, and the genre’s long tradition of placing vulnerable women at the center of stories means we’ve gotten truly legendary performances out of some major talents, from Jamie Lee Curtis to Sigourney Weaver to Toni Collette.

Adelaide, played by Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o, is the center of Us, and she rises to the occasion by adding another legendary performance to horror film history, a performance made all the more powerful by her dual roles. As Adelaide she is vulnerable but strong, scared but determined, loving but savage.

As Red, Adelaide’s Tethered double, she is both an entirely different personality and every bit Adelaide’s mirror image. She jerks and twists when Adelaide is graceful, grins when Adelaide gasps in terror, and croaks where Adelaide speaks.

It’s a magnificent pair of performances, and while there are certainly plenty of other things to recommend about Us, her daring and brilliant performance is the first thing many moviegoers will come away talking about.

The Tyler family who join the Wilsons join for a day at the beach in the first act of the film, are presented as shallow, bickering people with no real sense of love between them. While that creates plenty of opportunities for comedy, it does mean the blow is dulled a little bit when their murders happen midway through the movie.

Yes, that sequence is funny and gets quite tense when the Wilsons show up, but you get the sense that the Tylers didn’t really need to be as broad as they are, particularly when the film already roots us in the emotional reality of the Wilsons. Keep watching the video to see the 4 best and 4 worst things about us!

Everything Good Coming To Netflix In April 2019

Everything Good Coming To Netflix In April 2019 As usual, there’s a lot of great new stuff heading to Netflix in April, and we’ve cherry-picked the best of the best out of the streaming giant’s list of upcoming releases. From apocalyptic horror to quirky indie comedies, here are the best Netflix releases for April 2019.

Based on the 1960s Japanese show, Ultraman is an updated take on the giant robot warrior hero, changing the style from live action to gorgeous 3D that’ll no doubt offer plenty of opportunity to showcase Ultraman’s ambitious storylines.

The Netflix show takes its story from a manga that began in 2011, which introduces the son of the original Ultraman taking up the mantle of the hero to defend the Earth. Remember how each episode of the original series climaxed with a giant monster fight that threatened to destroy towns, cities, and sometimes even entire stretches of empty woodland? It’ll be a lot like that, but instead of rubber suits and miniatures, Netflix’s Ultraman will be action on a cosmic scale.

Ultraman transforms on Netflix on April 1st.

The first part of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was one of the most anticipated new Netflix shows of October 2018. Starring Kiernan Shipka as the half-witch Sabrina Spellman, the show quickly dove into some dark corners of Sabrina’s world.

The second part of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is bound to offer just as much intrigue, and if the latest trailer is any indication, it’s going even darker than the first part. Get set to be bewitched on April 5.

Through eye-opening documentaries like The Living Planet, Life, and Planet Earth, the BBC has introduced the natural world to millions, all of it accompanied by the distinctive narration of David Attenborough.

With Our Planet, the team that created BBC’s Planet Earth is set to deliver another breathtaking glimpse into the wild world that most people never get a chance to see, and David Attenborough is back as the narrator to guide us through it all.

If you’re a fan of nature documentaries, make sure you tune in for Our Planet on April 5th. Keep watching the video to see everything good coming to Netflix in April 2019!

The Ending Of Us Explained

The Ending Of Us Explained Jordan Peele’s Get Out had a lot to say, but Us is arguably twice as ambitious, doubling down on both the horror and the social commentary. But if you didn’t quite catch what the movie was going for, then it might also be a frustrating watch. There’s a lot going on beneath the surface of this movie – and we mean that literally.

The premise of Us revolves around sinister, slasher-movie doppelgangers, who show up out of nowhere with apparently murderous motives. It supposedly focuses on one family, the Wilsons, being attacked in a home invasion by brutal copies of themselves. But the third act reveals that it’s not just the Wilsons having this strange experience – it’s the entire United States of America, with an unfathomably huge army of doubles being led by a woman named Red, the shadow version of Lupita Nyong’o’s Adelaide.
That’s the first twist the movie throws at you. But the second big twist, teased out slowly, is that the Addie the audience has been following the whole movie isn’t the original Adelaide – it’s her double, who switched places with her at a young age during the movie’s opening flashback scene.
Post-traumatic

Grown-up Addie is haunted by an experience from her youth, when she wandered into a boardwalk funhouse and saw a sinister vision of herself. But the movie leaves out crucial information of what happened during that encounter, apparently reflecting the fact that Addie herself has suppressed what happened. As she recalls, she wandered into the attraction, found herself, and then shortly returned to her panicking parents. But as the final frames of the movie reveal, a whole lot of consequential stuff happened during that brief period – like the fact that the original Addie never came back.
In the movie’s final moments, Addie realizes – or perhaps just finally admits to herself – that she is the double from the underground, who strangled the original Addie and took her place, leaving the original Addie shackled down below to begin a new life as Red.
One big clue that this is what happened is that Red is the only one of the doubles that can talk. Everyone else only emits inhuman grunts and moans, with Red speaking in a raspy, damaged voice. Turns out, this comes from the damage her double did to her throat when she strangled her. When the double entered the real world, she still didn’t know how to speak, leaving her parents baffled at their daughter’s sudden, apparently trauma-induced muteness.

The Endgame Spoilers That Have Already Been Leaked

The Endgame Spoilers That Have Already Been Leaked If you plan on going into Avengers: Endgame completely spoiler-free, well best of luck to you. But if you really just can’t wait for your next Endgame fix, these leaks and spoilers should tide you over until April.

Sometimes it isn’t what a Marvel actor says that gives the game away, but where they say it. In August 2018, fans noticed that a certain behind-the-scenes interview with Robert Downey Jr. seemed to take place on the set of Shuri’s lab in Wakanda. Taking this at face value, it would seem to imply that Tony Stark is going to Wakanda — and could meet the young Wakandan genius herself.

The second Endgame trailer revealed what we all knew was going to happen – Tony Stark makes it back to Earth. Once home, it looks like he and Shuri could combine their considerable brainpower and scientific know-how to give the Avengers a chance to put things right.

Unfortunately, Marvel threw a curveball during the Endgame trailer by having Shuri’s face flash up on one of Bruce Banner’s monitors, implying that she was lost during the Decimation. This is despite Angela Bassett, who plays Queen Ramonda, having already confirmed to ScreenRant that she and Shuri both survived.

Obviously Thanos will return in Endgame but will he really be the lead villain? Long before Avengers 4 had even been given a title, tie-in merch for the movie seemed to drop a potentially huge spoiler for the story. The packaging, which showed Thor and Rocket Raccoon kitted out with brand new matching costumes, included a short synopsis that seemingly confirmed a new villain would come to the fore in Endgame. It read:

“The Asgardian Thor wields the mighty Stormbreaker in his battle against new foes. Rocket teams up with a new crew to guard the galaxy from an even greater threat.”

But who or what could this “greater threat” be? If Endgame follows the plot of the Infinity Gauntlet comic, Nebula could end up as the main antagonist but there are a whole host of other villains who could end up facing down the Avengers. Of course, it’s entirely possible that Thanos is the primary villain for Endgame after all, and that this “greater threat” is a terrifying new plan that he’s putting into action. Who knows?

In October 2018, TheWrap exclusively revealed that 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford had joined the cast of the upcoming Avengers sequel in a mystery role, and various other media outlets quickly backed the story up.

MovieWeb sources claimed that Langford had already finished all of her filming for the movie, suggesting that she was brought on board in a relatively minor role and did what she needed to do during the September 2018 reshoots.

So Langford’s part probably won’t be a big one, but if it was little more than glorified extra work then Marvel wouldn’t have gone to the trouble of hiring an in-demand star. She got a much-deserved nod at the Golden Globes 2018 for her work as Hannah Baker in teen drama 13 Reasons Why, the first season of which was a massive hit for Netflix. Marvel and Disney clearly know a rising star when they see one, but just how important Langford is to Endgame has yet to be seen. Keep watching the video to see more of the Endgame spoilers that have already been leaked!
