‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Recap: Role Reversal

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Recap: Role Reversal
Brooklyn Nine-Nine returned for its seventh season with a two-part premiere. A review of “Manhunter” and “Captain Kim” coming up just as soon as I give you a foot five…

Every previous season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine ended with the status of Jake and/or Holt within the squad very much up in the air. It’s a tradition that has generally led to memorable finales and sluggish premieres, as Dan Goor and company are forced to foreground plot over comedy until all our characters are reassembled back in their usual configuration at the Nine-Nine.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7 Episodes 1 & 2

Before NBC benevolently saved Brooklyn Nine-Nine from cancelation, a new season of the beloved workplace comedy seemed improbable; after the successful return, the hilarious Season 6, a new season seemed inevitable. Sure enough, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is back for Season 7 on NBC, which seems like it should have been the home of the Dan Goor and Michael Schur series all along. Season 7 will supposedly consist of 13 episodes, but that was the original order of the sixth season as well, before the network ordered five additional installments, so who knows?

If that order sticks, NBC wastes no time burning two, unrelated episodes on the premiere date with “Manhunter” and “Captain.” Fortunately, these are two solid half-hours, but still, if the network insists on airing an hour of Brooklyn Nine-Nine,

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Cast Previews Holt's Demotion, New 'Shenanigoogles' in Season 7 First Look — Watch

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Cast Previews Holt's Demotion, New 'Shenanigoogles' in Season 7 First Look — Watch
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is back on the beat — and serving up more “shenanigoogles” than ever before. Season 7 of the NBC comedy will also be rejigger precinct dynamics, as teased in the exclusive video above.

The premiere picks up one week after the events of Season 6. Acting commissioner Madeline Wuntch has demoted Holt to patrolman, and the captain is still adjusting to his new role. This leads to an awkward exchange between Jake and his (former?) boss, who allows passersby to breach an active crime scene while partnered with fellow beat cop Debbie Fogel (SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer).

Supergirl Star Promises Crisis On Infinite Earths Will Change Everything

“Worlds will live, worlds will die. And the universe will never be the same.” So said Psycho-Pirate in the final moments of last year’s crossover “Elseworlds,” as a tease for the next big Arrowverse event. And apparently he meant it, too, as Supergirl star David Harewood has promised that “Crisis on Infinite Earths” will truly change everything.

Ahead of the five-part extravaganza kicking off this weekend, Harewood spoke to ComicBook.com and, though he was careful not to give anything away, he was on hand to tease that “Crisis” will prove highly important to the development of his character, the Martian Manhunter.

“I’ll say there’s an important change that’s coming for me as an actor. It’s going to come as a result of ‘Crisis,’ which is important for me as an actor, and for me playing the character. So I’m actually really looking forward to that,

Martian Manhunter Movie In Development, Person Of Color To Star

The Martian Manhunter has so far been a no-show on the big screen, but this serious oversight may soon be corrected, as apparently, Warner Bros. is planning a movie starring the shapeshifting alien. What’s more, our sources – the same ones who told us a Green Lantern show was coming to HBO Max, which we now know to be true – have informed us that the studio is looking for a person of color to play J’onn J’onzz in the film and that it will be part of the Dceu.

Of course, the fact that the Dceu’s Martian Manhunter will be played by a non-Caucasian actor isn’t a huge shock, as it’s become the norm for J’onzz to be portrayed as African-American in his human form. Carl Lumbly voiced the hero in the Justice League animated series while Phil Morris played him in Smallville. And obviously,

‘Tokyo Vice’: Michael Mann to Direct Ansel Elgort, Ken Watanabe in HBO Max Pilot

Michael Mann will be directing the pilot episode of Tokyo Vice, the crime drama series set to premiere on HBO’s forthcoming streaming platform HBO Max. In addition to serving as executive producer, Mann will also potentially direct further episodes of the show starring Ken Watanabe and Ansel Elgort, which is set to begin filming in February of 2020. Tokyo Vice seems like familiar territory for Mann. He executive produced Miami Vice, a detective show that now serves as a visual shorthand for the 1980s, and directed several gritty crime thrillers like Manhunter, Heat, Collateral, and Public Enemies. His other …

10 Facts About Hannibal Lecter That The Movies Leave Out

One of the most frightening and enigmatic villains ever to appear in literature, Hannibal Lecter has been an enduring source of nightmares for fans of Thomas Harris's novels for decades. Dr. Lecter first known to cinema audiences in Manhunter, one of Michael Mann's first films and a commercial failure. He would become a fixture of pop culture once he appeared in another adaptation, Silence of the Lambs, played with aplomb by Sir Anthony Hopkins.

This film put Dr. Lecter on the map, as the incarcerated villain that young FBI agent Clarice Starling has to consult to take down another serial killer. It inspired film adaptations of Harris's entire Hannibal trilogy, from Red Dragon to Hannibal, an origins novel in the early '00s, and even a tv series on NBC.

David Fincher movies: All 10 films. ranked from worst to best, including ‘The Social Network,’ ‘Se7en,’ ‘Fight Club’
David Fincher celebrates his 57th birthday on August 28, 2019. With two Oscar nominations under his belt and a series of box office hits, the director has firmly established himself as a master of blending art and commerce. It’s especially impressive considering his output has been uniformly dark, moody and disturbing, with flashes of wit and satire thrown in. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at all 10 of his films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1962, Fincher cut his teeth at special effects house Industrial Light and Magic, working on such films as “Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi” (1983) and “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (1984). He left to pursue a career in directing, making his mark with a commercial for the American Cancer Society that depicted a fetus smoking a cigarette.

Horror Actressing: Joan Allen in "Manhunter"

by Jason Adams

When I first introduced this "Great Moments in Horror Actressing" series a few weeks back I mentioned that my own definition of what makes a "horror" film is fairly loose -- so is Michael Mann's 1986 serial killer flick Manhunter a Horror Film? I think that book author Thomas Harris wrote all of his Hannibal Lecter tomes with enough Guignol to them to say that yes, his intention was to unsettle our fundamental trust in the form of the world -- to violate the borders of what's sane and insane with the explicit intention of horrifying. 

But Michael Mann as a director, he does bring Manhunter back down to earth a bit -- just look at how Bryan Fuller adapted the material of Red Dragon straight into outer space with his gloriously baroque show Hannibal to see how much Mann grounded his movie in contrast. All that

Brian Cox: The ‘Succession’ Star on the Art of Playing Bastards

It is a truth universally recognized that Succession, the darkly funny HBO drama about a media-dynasty family eating their own, was a slow starter. And the early feint of introducing the series’ most recognizable face in the form of Brian Cox, supporting actor extraordinaire, only to have him lapse into a coma by the end of the pilot did not exactly inspire a tune-in-next-week fervor. Luckily, the sidelining move was temporary. Once the first season found its footing, you could see the show improving exponentially episode by episode; the finale

De Laurentiis pt 5: the Schlocky 80s

This week at Tfe we've celebrated the centennial of one of cinema’s most prolific and legendary producers, Dino De Laurentiis... with look backs at his Italian breakthrough, his expensive taste in 60s epics, an American reinvention, and the hubris of King Kong.

Here's Chris Feil to wrap things up...

With the exception of Hannibal Lecter, history tends to overlook Dino De Laurentiis genre contributions. In fact when Manhunter (1986) would arrive, Hannibal was somewhat the closing chapter to what Dino would bring in the late 70s and 80s. Instead the interim brought its share of delightful schlock, namely giving David Lynch enduring battle wounds and introducing the world to Arnold Schwarzenegger. I’m talking about the earnest disasterpieces Dune and Conan the Barbarian.

Think of this as the De Laurentiis dessert of our week-long series...

Original Hannibal Lecter Actor Explains The Problem With The Franchise

Anthony Hopkins might’ve made Hannibal Lecter into the iconic character he is today, but not many people know that he’s not the original actor to portray the cannibalistic serial killer. That distinction belongs to Brian Cox. The 73-year-old performer was the first to bring the demented doctor to the big screen back in 1986. Manhunter, based on the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, fared poorly at the box office, but has since become more appreciated by critics and fans alike.

A lot of what Anthony Hopkins did with his Oscar-winning role in The Silence of the Lambs can be attributed at least in part to his predecessor. While Cox appreciates what others have done with the character in the subsequent decades after his initial performance, he does take issue with the direction the franchise has gone in.

In particular, he feels Lecter has been given too much of the spotlight recently.

Michael Mann Discusses His Crime Epic ‘Heat’ In Final Episode Of ‘One Heat Minute’ Podcast
It’s hard to imagine that Michael Mann has only directed 11 feature films over his career. Debuting way back in 1981, with the film “Thief,” the filmmaker has turned in classics like “Manhunter,” “The Last of the Mohicans,” “The Insider,” and of course, “Heat.” And it’s that last film that caught the eye of the people behind the podcast One Heat Minute.

Event Leviathan Puts DC's Clandestine Operatives in the Spotlight

Jim Dandy Jun 10, 2019

Event Leviathan #1, the first chapter of the new DC crossover, kicks off by destroying the entire clandestine DC community.

One of the greatest Suicide Squad stories of all time is "The Janus Directive." The crossover ran in 1989 between Suicide Squad, Checkmate, Manhunter, Firestorm, and Captain Atom. Over the course of 12 chapters, it pulled in most of the clandestine superhero services in the DC universe for Amanda Waller's incredibly intricate mole hunt. In the process, the Squad, Checkmate, Peacemaker, Firestorm, Captain Atom, the Cbi (the in-universe analogue for the CIA), and Force of July all get into it with each other until Waller reveals that she's been manipulating them all to stop Kobra from taking over the world.

I bring this up because from what I've seen in Action Comics and in this preview of Event Leviathan #1, I think it might also be Brian Michael Bendis' favorite Suicide Squad story.

‘The Silence of the Lambs’ Author Thomas Harris Breaks Long Silence: ‘Nothing’s Made Up’

‘The Silence of the Lambs’ Author Thomas Harris Breaks Long Silence: ‘Nothing’s Made Up’
In his first substantive interview in four decades, “The Silence of the Lambs” author Thomas Harris says he’s never “made up anything” — a surprising revelation given the nature of his biggest and most monstrous creation, Hannibal Lecter.

“I don’t think I’ve ever made up anything,” he told the New York Times in an interview published Saturday. “Everything has happened. Nothing’s made up. You don’t have to make anything up in this world.”

The article’s author, Alexandra Alter, wrote that Harris kept repeating this idea whenever she asked him about the origins of certain characters or plot details, adding that Harris has been “a keen observer and a chronicler of people and their darkest impulses.”
