The quality of Netflix's big-budget action blockbusters has varied majorly over the years, from the disaster that was Bright to the smashing success of Extraction. This week, fresh off the rollout of his true vision for Justice League on HBO Max, Zack Snyder will attempt to join the list of well-received Netflix original films with Army of the Dead. With the remake of Dawn of the Dead being his feature film debut, a new zombie flick seems like a perfect fit.

The Daily Bugle has never looked this good.
When shooting wrapped on The Woman in the Window in October 2018, cast and crew celebrated the completion of a sure-fire hit. The film was firmly in the commercially successful psychological thriller genre, but featured the sort of heavyweight talent that might impress the critics and even garner an Oscar nod or two. The director was Joe Wright, whose previous film, the Churchill biopic Darkest Hour, was showered with praise. The star was Amy Adams, a much-loved actress and six-times unsuccessful Oscar nominee whom the sentimental old Academy are panting to give her due. The lip-smacking supporting cast included Julianne Moore (the fabricated neighbour, Jane, who Anna thinks has been murdered), Jennifer Jason Leigh (who claims to be the real Jane), and Gary Oldman (Jane's husband). Since then, however, the film has been beset by a succession of disasters. Poor reception by test audiences, delays induced by studio politics and the pandemic, accusations of plagiarism and bizarre scandals concerning some of the people involved with the movie have led some commentators to brand The Woman in the Window with the dreaded label “cursed”. Once expected to pack out cinemas, the film has now landed instead on Netflix - a full two and a half years after the initial shoot was completed. The high hopes of 2018 have not been reflected in the muted way the film has been promoted, with no advance screenings for critics and little of the hoopla that usually accompanies such a star-laden project. The reviews have largely been lukewarm. But that was perhaps the inevitable outcome for a film clearly born under an unlucky star.

Apple TV+Prince Harry’s son, Archie, is featured in the trailer for his new documentary with Oprah Winfrey.While it must be said at the outset that Archie is utterly adorable, the move to include Archie in the film could trigger a new round of criticism over the Sussexes’ perceived double standards when it comes to their privacy.The trailer for Harry’s new show, which is called The Me You Can’t See, was released Monday morning.Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Should Drop Their Titles, Royal Sources SayThe show itself, which is described as a multipart documentary, will hit screens via Apple TV+ on Friday.The dropping of the official trailer was announced on Harry and Meghan’s website, Archewell, which said it “offers a glimpse into the diverse stories of mental health and emotional well-being that will be highlighted in the new documentary series.”The show will see Harry and Oprah “join forces to guide honest discussions about mental health and emotional well-being while opening up about their personal journeys and struggles,” the website said.It added that the docuseries would feature “high-profile guests and everyday people—including singer, songwriter, and actress Lady Gaga, Syrian refugee Fawzi, DeMar DeRozan of the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, author and counselor Ambar, and many others—sharing their stories of living with the challenges of mental health issues and addressing their emotional well-being.”The trailer at one stage shows a tearful Oprah saying: “It’s just something I accepted.” Oprah has previously opened up about how she was raped as a child.There is a clear suggestion that Harry will talk in detail about his own traumatic childhood: In one clip he is shown looking emotional at the camera before it cuts to footage of him at the funeral of his mother, Princess Diana.There will likely be some trepidation at Buckingham Palace that Harry will use the film to renew his criticisms of his father, Prince Charles.Last week, speaking about Charles, he told a podcast: “He’s treating me the way that he was treated.” He also said: “There’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway. As parents we should be doing the most we can to try and say, ‘You know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.’”It seems unlikely the new series will lead to any royal reconciliation. In another clip, Harry appears to be on a video call when he is joined by wife Meghan, who is wearing a T-shirt with the words “Raising The Future” emblazoned on it. (The shirt is by Mère Soeur, a “U.K. lifestyle brand that empowers women and celebrates sisterhood.”)Suggesting that the impact of the pandemic will be a key thread in the show, Harry is seen saying, “The results of this year will be felt for decades, for kids, families, husbands, wives…”The trailer then cuts to footage of Archie on Meghan’s knee. Archie is wearing a white baby suit, and Meghan is holding a large rectangular object which looks like a kid-proofed tablet (or perhaps a baby mirror).The inclusion of Archie in the trailer, and presumably the series itself, is likely to spark criticism of the couple for double standards when it comes to their family privacy, in much the same way that Archie’s appearance in a podcast they made for Spotify last year did.On that occasion, Archie was heard wishing listeners, “Happy New Year.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

"This is one of those unfortunate decisions that had to be made and we move on," Lionel Richie told PEOPLE after Sunday's semi-final episode
Say the words “Alice in Wonderland”, and as likely as not it will be a ruby-lipped, blue pinafore-wearing, blonde little girl that bounces into your mind. The 1951 Walt Disney animation from which she sprang remains one of the most popular in the studio’s canon, and is a linchpin of the new V&A exhibition exploring Alice’s considerable influence since Charles Lutwidge Dodgson – better known as Lewis Carroll – first told her tale in 1862. With this in mind, it is remarkable to learn that when the Disney film was released 70 years ago, it tanked. Reaction from critics and public alike was at best tepid and in some cases scorchingly cruel. One critic called it “a horrible anachronism”, another a “million pound ineptitude [that] deserves nothing but boos”. Not only that, but the film nearly didn’t make it through development. Disney purchased the rights to John Tenniel’s original illustrations in 1931 and began his first adaptation two years later, but Alice proved a beast – even a curse. Over the next 20 years he trialled and then shelved artwork, he hired and then fired writers, he locked horns with rival studios releasing competing versions, and had to abandon plans entirely when America entered the Second World War in 1941. By the time V-E day came around, the timbre of films had changed (reassurance and stability being key) so back to the drawing board Disney went, his Alice a puzzle that no-one – not even the king of filmmaking – could solve. “When you consider how impactful Disney’s Alice turned out to be, both in disseminating the story across the globe and in establishing her identity, the process that he went through to make it is fascinating,” says curator Kate Bailey. You may be wondering why Disney stuck with it. Why pour resources into a film that did not seem to want to be made? Cinderella (1950), for instance, took only two years and $2 million to make, which makes Alice’s 20 years and $4 million seem rather profligate. The answer, says Fox Carney, researcher at the Walt Disney Animation Studio Archive in Los Angeles, which holds around 65 million objects dating back to the Twenties, is that “the story had fascinated him from a very early age. He couldn’t let go of it.” Indeed, “No story in English literature has intrigued me more,” Disney told American Weekly, in 1946. Disney was not alone in having fallen under Carroll’s spell. As the exhibition makes clear, playwrights, artists and the like began reimagining Alice, her coterie of zany hangers-on and the nonsensical worlds they enter almost as soon as ink had dried on Carroll’s pages. Carroll did not live to see the first cinematic adaptation in 1903 – a silent black and white in which rudimentary special effects included a vanishing Cheshire Cat and a baby that turned into a pig. Other versions followed in 1910 and 1915, followed by Disney’s first in 1924 – silent Alice Comedies in which a live-action girl visits a drawn Cartoonland. Interest only grew. In 1932, the real Alice Hargreaves (nee Liddell), then 80, travelled to the US to celebrate the centenary of Carroll’s birth. Her subsequent tour drew excited crowds wherever she went. In response, Disney set to work on a feature-length live-action/animation, with Mary Pickford as Alice. He got as far as making colour screen tests, but Paramount beat him to the punch, releasing a live-action adaptation of their own (starring Cary Grant, no less, as the Mock Turtle) in 1933. A devastated Disney told the New York Times that “we aren’t ready for a feature yet.” Four years later he had another run at the target, this time a Mickey Mouse short, Thru the Mirror. Behind the scenes, he also quietly began planning a feature-length all-animated Alice. Between 1938 and 1941, he held 11 meetings on the subject at his Burbank studios. In one, he is recorded as saying: “To hell with the English audiences or the people who love Carroll…I’d like to make it more or less a 1940 or 1945 version – right up to date...something that will go in Podunk, Iowa, and they will go in and laugh at it because they have experienced it.” “Walt was fighting expectation,” says Carney. “Those books were giants. He was always going to be accused of Americanising or Disney-fying them. What we have come to appreciate over time is that he kept the spirit of the source material, but found a way for it to be accessible in a motion picture.” In June 1939, Disney hired the British artist David Hall to produce drawings based on Tenniel’s illustrations. A story-reel was complete by December, but Disney was disappointed. Hall’s drawings were too dark and complicated, he said, adding: “I don’t think there would be any harm in letting this thing sit for a while. Everyone is stale now.” “His talent was being able to ask the ‘what if’ and ‘how about’ questions,” says Carney, and he was never afraid of going far down a road, and saying, this doesn’t work – we need a different take.”
