Sunlight falls on a sleeping man’s face and his eyelids open. He lies naked on a hospital bed, hooked up to a network of tubes that presumably kept him alive while he slept, though there is no one to explain what happened to him. The room he is in is abandoned. The same goes for the next hallway, the entrance to the hospital, and, spookily, the streets outside. The man, of course, slept through something big, but what? Is London now a nuclear exclusion zone? Was the city evacuated? Or worse?

The release of 28 Days Later in 2002 sparked a decade defined by its obsession with the walking dead. Zack Snyder launched his remake of Dawn of the Dead in 2004. This was followed by Steve Miner’s Day of the Dead (2008), the campy parody Zombieland (2009), and the TV series The Walking Dead (2010). Books capitalized on the trend, including Max Brooks’ The Zombie Survival Guide (2003) and World War Z (2006). Zombies have entered the popular consciousness so much that it’s become apparent, at least to millennial teenagers, that if you ask your friend about his “zombie plan”, he’ll have a detailed escape route mapped out in the event. of zombie apocalypse.

Part of the reason 28 Days Later has so effectively reinvented the genre is the debate that still confuses critics: does it even count as a zombie movie? Director Danny Boyle has spent the better part of two decades discussing the negative. “You can’t make a zombie movie today,” he told Time Out London. “Watching these movies from the 1970s, they came out of nuclear paranoia. It’s not that people are going to die, it’s the fear and uncertainty of what the radiation will do to the survivors. Nuclear weapons are still there, but this paranoia is not the same.

According to composer John Murphy, Boyle first described the project to him as “a zombie amateur movie”, but “after that first call, I don’t think we called it a zombie movie again. Danny was just trying to make the best movie possible and, to me, it was more of an apocalyptic road movie.

Yet undeniably, even while not trying to make a zombie movie, 28 Days Later inadvertently changed the way we imagine zombies, earning cult status in the horror canon that remains strong on occasion. its 20th birthday this month.. And whichever camp you fall on, it certainly started out as a zombie movie.

Brazilian Alex Pereira upset Israel Adesanya to relieve the New Zealander of his UFC middleweight title.

UFC President Dana White has described the moment Alex Pereira came out of his corner in the last round to stop Israel Adesanya and relieve the New Zealander of his middleweight crown as something “straight out of the woods”. ‘a movie”.

An exhausted Pereira hung out on the scoreboards ahead of the fifth round of a thrilling UFC 281 main event at New York’s Madison Square Garden, with Adesanya (23-2) seemingly set to make a successful sixth defense of its title in front of 20, 8845 Fans.

But with just two minutes left on the clock, Brazil’s Pereira (7-1) suddenly found a second wind, unleashing a flurry of blows – including a vicious left hook and an uppercut – that badly knocked Adesanya out and forced referee Marc Goddard waving it. as he collapsed against the fence.

It was a dramatic end to a contest that Adesanya appeared to be in control of after dominating the third and fourth rounds with his superior grappling skills.

The stunning result ends Adesanya’s 12-fight unbeaten streak at middleweight – one shy of legendary Anderson Silva – as Pereira picked up his third victory over ‘The Last Stylebender’ after beating him two times – once by knockout – in kickboxing competitions. in 2016 and 2017.

Pereira, 35, is now 4-0 in the UFC and a unified champion at 185 pounds just a year after starting MMA full-time.

Some had wondered if he was ready for a title with just three fights under his belt, but he responded to those criticisms in style by becoming the first man to stop Adesanya in the Octagon.

cfu

Israel Adesanya was in a confident mood ahead of his UFC middleweight title defense against Alex Pereira.

The Kiwi’s only previous loss was a unanimous decision to Polish champion Jan Blachowicz in March last year, when he moved up to light heavyweight in a daring bid to become a two-weight champion.

At the post-fight press conference, White revealed Pereira’s Rocky-esque comeback was inspired by harsh words in his corner before that fateful final round.

“I don’t know if you guys [in the media] have headphones on your side, but in the corner of Pereira this round [before the fifth]it was like straight out of a movie,” White said.

“I wanted to hear what the corner was saying, so I put the headphones on and one of his trainers, I don’t know who it was, was like, ‘You lose this fuckin’ fight, you gotta knock him out in this round!

“You’ve got to go forward, you’ve got to throw cluster punches, you’ve got to throw combinations. Let your fucking hands go, you’re going to be world champion in five minutes.

“And then he gets up and walks out there…it was really straight out of a movie.”

White hadn’t spoken with Adesanya but was full of praise for the dethroned champion, saying he never ducked anyone and was always looking for the biggest challenges.

“Israel Adesanya didn’t even shy away from a fight. He loves to fight all the time. A lot of people talk publicly, and it’s a whole different story behind the scenes,” White said.

Israel Adesanya was in the lead for most of his fight with Alex Pereira before being stopped in the final round.

Israel Adesanya was in the lead for most of his fight with Alex Pereira before being stopped in the final round.

“This guy is an absolute stud, [he] still wants to stay active and you know, a fight that most guys would pause and say “give me more time, give me this and that”, he dove right into that fight.”

White said he was ready to have a rematch and give Adesanya a chance for immediate revenge for his long-running rivalry with Pereira, but dismissed fears the stoppage would be premature.

“I didn’t have a problem with the stoppage. He [Adesanya] was hurt, he obviously hadn’t been out. He seemed pretty hurt to me,” he said.

White also announced that Pereira took ‘performance of the night’ honors for his unprecedented win, pocketing a check for US$50,000 (NZ$82,000) to go with the shiny new belt wrapped around her size.

The lightweight barnburner between Dustin Poirier and Michael Chandler – which Poirier won via third-round submission – took home the “Fight of the Night” award.

Earlier on the card, Adesanya’s City Kickboxing Gym teammates Dan Hooker and Carlos Ulberg scored impressive saves in their respective lightweight and light heavyweight contests.

Hooker (22-12) outclassed Peruvian Carlos Puelles en route to a second-round TKO victory, while Ulberg (6-1) needed just 76 seconds to knock out Romanian Nicolae Negumereanu in a performance of stars.

But Christchurch’s Brad Riddell suffered his third straight first-round loss when he was stopped by fellow Brazilian Renato Moicano via submission.

Nachindi Girl Friendu with Uday Shankar and Jennifer Emmanuel as the lead couple under the direction of Guru Pawan was released for the public today. Let’s see how it goes.

Story: Set against the backdrop of Vizag, the film revolves around Raja (Uday Shankar), an easy-going guy. During his occasional road trip, Raja meets Sandy (Jennifer Emmanuel) and impresses her with his crazy activities. Later, Sandy attends a meeting and comes out as a completely changed person with a new boyfriend. All of a sudden why does Sandy change his attitude? Is there a story behind it? How will Raja react to Sandy’s behavior? How does the Indian stock market thread relate to the whole setup? To find out, you have to go see the film in nearby cinemas.

Performances: Uday Shankar has improved a lot in terms of body transformation and acting. Apart from impressive dance moves in two songs, Uday performed decently in the given lead role. His dialogue and emotional acting during the climactic parts bring depth to the proceedings.

The heroine Jennifer Emmanuel is glamorous on screen and gave a decent performance in her determined role. Srikanth Iyengar does well in his key cameo.

The actor Madhunandan is not used properly because his role as the hero’s friend goes unnoticed. Kannada actor Saurav Lokesh is impressive with his screen presence as the main antagonist. The other supporting artists who played key roles are doing well in their respective roles.

Technicalities: The music of Elaine Giftos is correct since two songs are audible on the screen. Its background score works in parts. Siddam Manohar’s photography is very good as he presented the seaside town of Vizag in a beautiful way. Editing by Sagar Udagandla is correct.

Although the production values ​​of Atluri Narayana Rao’s banner are good, other departments such as costumes and sound mixing have done their respective jobs decently.

Analysis: Written and directed by Guru Pawan, Nachindi Girl Friendu is a youthful love drama that deals with a stock market issue. While Guru’s ideas on paper are good, his execution lacks a punchy presentation.

The key point of the film will only be revealed during the last twenty minutes instead if the set up was done from the beginning itself, the result would have been much better. To sum it up, Nachindi Girl Friendu is a lovingly wrapped serious drama that struggles with poor writing and flat processing. Had the film been handled with an effective script, things would have been even better.

Verdict: Good concept bad execution!

Rating: 2/5

Fierce competition underway for Korean film rights: The DONG-A ILBO https://puroveinte.com/fierce-competition-underway-for-korean-film-rights-the-dong-a-ilbo/ Fri, 04 Nov 2022 22:26:27 +0000 https://puroveinte.com/fierce-competition-underway-for-korean-film-rights-the-dong-a-ilbo/ Since the whole world entered an endemic phase last spring, remakes of Korean films that had to be put on hold during the pandemic have been released around the world.

Since the whole world entered an endemic phase last spring, remakes of Korean films that had to be put on hold during the pandemic have been released around the world. Films that hit the jackpot, including “Miracle in Cell No. 7” (2013) or “A Very Easy Job” are also welcoming moviegoers one after another, proving the promise of a relatable K-story without geographical boundaries. .

The French film “Restless”, which was simulcast globally via Netflix on February 25 this year, took the lead in the streaming scene for five days after its February 26 release, leaving Hollywood blockbusters behind. It is a remake of the film “A Hard Day”, released in 2014. In September, a Spanish remake of “Sweet 20” (2014) was released in North America and Mexico. The movie “Midnight Runners” (2017) was remade as a Japanese NTV drama “Miman Keisatsu: Midnight Runner” and aired from June to September this year. It was a box office success, recording the highest viewership rating of 11.2%.

According to the Korean Film Council, export sales of Korean film remake rights last year amounted to US$1,942,500. This is almost double $999,126 in 2020 and is the highest in the past five years. Generally, when selling the film remake rights, the original author, such as a national investment distribution company, signs a contract so that part of the profits are distributed after the opening of the film, since only partial figures involved in the sales contract are not shared with the national film council, the actual rights sales are expected to be much higher.

In particular, foreign film companies have been vying for the rights to remakes of films that have proved successful among Korean films by taking advantage of the involuntary pause during the pandemic, when they had to postpone the release of their finished films. The competition for the rights to the remake movie is getting more and more intense as K content has grown in popularity and credibility while vouching for its mega-hit ability, led by “Squid Game” during the pandemic.

“During the pandemic, a particularly palpable new trend has emerged where efforts are being made to try to uncover stories that can reduce risk when turned into remakes, for which Korean box office success is a barometer,” said Lee Jung. -ha, director of Contents Panda, a subsidiary of NEW, the distributor of “Miracle in Cell No. 7”, which is in charge of overseas sales. “During the pandemic, there have been many inquiries from overseas buyers regarding the purchase of remake rights.”

Miami lawsuit seeks to stop Hulu from airing Billy Corben’s new documentary about the sex scandal of Jerry Falwell Jr., one of the men involved in the saga chasing audio recordings he says were made at his unknowing.

Gordon Bello is a former friend of Giancarlo Granda, the young man from Miami nicknamed “the pool boy” in the media storm surrounding his professional and personal relationship with Falwell and his wife, Becki, after meeting them at the age of 20 years. at the station of Fontainebleau.

The Hulu documentary “God Forbid” includes recordings comedian Tom Arnold made of Bello talking about his dispute with Falwell and Granda over his alleged piece of a hotel deal in South Beach, a falling out that allegedly included Bello’s threats over personal photos of Becki Falwell he had obtained.

READ MORE: Miami lawyer: I changed my identity after Michael Cohen intervened in the Falwell dispute

Sometime in 2015, Michael Cohen, then attorney for future President Donald Trump, stepped in on the Falwells’ behalf to negotiate with Bello’s attorney to keep the photos private.

Arnold, an acquaintance of Cohen, recorded a conversation with him discussing his role in pursuing the photos for the Falwells, then recorded a subsequent conversation with Bello. The suit does not mention a date for the recorded conversations. Arnold was not immediately available for comment.

The lawsuit in Miami-Dade Circuit Court asks a judge to block Hulu from broadcasting conversations recorded by Arnold. It also names as defendants Arnold and Rakontur, the production company behind the documentary, owned by Corben and his producing partner, Alfred Spellman. Corben said Saturday night he had not seen the trial and was unable to comment.

Bello met the Falwells through Granda and helped navigate them to a South Beach inn the family purchased as part of a 2012 deal that included Granda as a minority partner.

Granda and Bello argued over this, and Bello later sued him and the Falwells for part of the deal allegedly promised to him and his father, a former developer named Jett Bello. They were known in Miami as Jesus Fernandez and Jesus Fernandez Jr. The two changed names in 2016, citing unspecified concerns over the legal dispute.

The Miami Herald obtained a copy of the lawsuit, which claims defamation and invasion of privacy. It includes a court file number, although online court records did not show it on the docket as of Saturday afternoon.

The documentary is set to premiere Tuesday on Hulu, but preview copies have already circulated in the media.

In the suit, Bello said he didn’t know Arnold recorded his conversation.

A former MIami-Dade County Commission Legislative Assistant, Bello is now launching a consulting business in Miami. In the lawsuit, he said his business “depends on the trust and reputation of the public.” Bello, who has not seen the documentary, said his understanding of the alleged defamation came from accounts given to him by reporters and critics who had seen the preview.

Doug Hanks covers the government of Miami-Dade for the Herald. He worked at the newspaper for almost 20 years, covering real estate, tourism and economics before joining the Metro desk in 2014.

College student | Sophie Sirokman

Miles Buchan, Staff Reporter

In the spirit of scary season, I decided to engage with my fears by adding a psychoactive element to my scary movie experience.

I set parameters regarding my method of cannabis use based on the timing of the film and recorded my reactions throughout the two-hour film.

It should be noted that my relationship with cannabis is extensive, but I am by no means a fan of horror movies. I look at them very rarely, and the ones I looked at never left my consciousness. That being said, I knew the movie and weed selections would be everything when it came to the outcome of this experiment.

My reasoning was: get as high as possible throughout the movie without peaking before the scariest parts. With this goal in mind, I have defined a range of test-grade sativa products to consume before and during testing. I also ate 40 milligrams of edibles about an hour before I started the movie for good measure.

Now that I’ve explained my thinking regarding weed, I’ll explain my movie choice. I chose to watch the 2018 film “Hereditary” because of its accolades and also because the elements and subject matter of the psychological thriller felt deeply disturbing to me when watching the previews.

Initially, as mentioned earlier, I took edibles that started appearing early in the movie. It felt like such a short time before I felt tense.

As I nervously adjusted and watched the intro to the movie, I smoked a blunt at a time to increase the high and stimulation of the nicotine, which certainly got me even more on edge. I found myself jumping at light noises just waiting for something major to happen.

The film’s build-up was slow, leaving plenty of room for silence and wonder. My brain used that time to run through all the possibilities and outcomes, trying to unpack the secrets of the story before they could catch me off guard. I clung to every word, listening for clues and foreshadowings, but I was just too stoned to be certain of anything.

There were many elements introduced early in the film that hit too close to home, causing my fear and anxiety to skyrocket.

For the first 40 minutes I could feel my heart rate increase until the first big scare finally hit – and it got me.

For the sake of not spoiling the details, I won’t report what I saw, but I will say that it made me widen my eyes and gasp. I was completely horrified by what I had just witnessed. It was the moment I feared and waited for.

As the film continued past this scene and as I entered the second half of the film, I dropped a large nut to serve as a send off. Unsure of what was next, I sat with my eyes glued to the screen and carefully examined the scene, its characters, and its details. That’s when the experience slowly turned into something I never expected.

About an hour and 20 minutes later, I reported having a moment of audible laughter that turned into comedic fun in its own right. It’s important to keep in mind that at this point I was completely cooked, so my interpretations in no way reflect those of someone who might have watched this film sober.

As a completely stoned viewer tends to do, I began to have other ways of perceiving the events of the film, which allowed my fear to fade. The long pauses and buildup to the film scared me the most during the first half, but the second half gave me too much time to calm down and speculate.

By the end of the movie, I was completely amused and slightly confused, which made the “big” ending completely silly to me. I found myself laughing continuously as the final events unfolded, and once the film was over, I was no longer in a state of fear.

After watching this movie, I think a movie with a faster pace and more visceral events would have kept me in that state of fear and anxiety. I also think that if I were to watch this movie again without being stoned, I might understand the overall plot better.

Until he actually saw ET on set, Thomas said he thought “that guy with a finger that can heal you” was a silly concept. That changed when production started, the actor said, because Spielberg made everything so believable.

“He was able to talk to you and make you feel like a peer and not feel like you’re looked down on, which is important when you’re a kid,” Thomas said. “Especially when you’re a kid in an adult world, in an adult job.”

Although Thomas hasn’t watched “ET” in 20 years (he said he couldn’t watch himself on screen), he understands why the film has endured.

“It speaks to our universal human compassion,” he said. “And we all have that. We all have the nurturer in us, don’t we? So I think that speaks to that. It takes us back to youth.”

Thomas said he was still recognized as the boy from “ET” but didn’t mind it. It was harder when he was a kid, a shock to the system when strangers around the world started saying hello.

“Suddenly I was no longer anonymous. And it was a weird feeling as a boy,” Thomas recalled. “There was a book called ‘Never Talk to Strangers’, and it was about not talking to strangers, not talking to strange people you don’t know, and unless your parents or family don’t know them, so I don’t talk to them, and then everyone talks to me.”

After recovering from the initial shock of fame, he learned that “ET” and the film’s director had been wonderful to be associated with.

“I imagine if it was a bad, universally reviled movie, we wouldn’t be talking about it 40 years later,” Thomas said. “But also people, when they recognize me, they associate me with this great character, this kind of cool, rebellious young boy, and that’s a good thing.”

In addition to never-before-seen footage from the film, other bonus features from the new release include a throwback to the film, “40 Years of ET the Extra-Terrestrial,” as well as “TCM Classic Film Festival: An Evening With Steven Spielberg. ” There are also cast and crew interviews and a conversation with composer John Williams about the film’s famous score. (TCM and CNN are both part of Warner Bros. Discovery.)

Thomas said he recognized how special “ET” was.

“It’s a rare and unique thing to be a part of, and I appreciate it so much more now because I know how rare it is to be successful in this industry,” he said. “Most movies come and go in a few years and nobody remembers them. This one stuck.”

Unsurprisingly, the most requested classic film in September was “Top Gun,” which is still enjoying its renewed relevance following the release of “Top Gun: Maverick” earlier this year.

While the original “Top Gun” had 44.9 times the average movie demand (impressive for a movie over 35 years old), “Maverick” still flies higher with 92 times the demand for the month, according to data from Parrot Analytics, which take into account consumer research, streaming, downloads and social media, among other commitments.
