The Fall (2006)
Foreign TV has spawned hit U.S. adaptations like “Homeland” and “The Office,” as well as pale imitations of the original. Remember the failed American versions of “The It Crowd” and “Coupling”? Yeah, we’d like to forget ’em as well.

It’s a shame that the major streaming services rare;y showcase their foreign acquisitions as well as their homegrown originals. We get it; there is just too much damn TV
“I just pitched the craziest ideas I could,” Morano told IndieWire on Saturday at the Television Critics Association press tour.
Showrunner Bruce Miller described the series, set in a dystopian world that subjugates women, as a “thriller.” But it’s also an intimate depiction of life in this terrifying world, told almost entirely from the point of view of Offred (Elisabeth Moss), a young woman forced essentially into sexual slavery.

L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz and its sequels have been adapted for the screen for nearly as long as there has been cinema. There's something about the tale of farmgirl Dorothy Gale being swept into the strange, magical, and sometimes scary land of Oz that has stuck in American popular consciousness and never let go.
Emerald City is the latest addition to the long on-screen Oz tradition, but, for all of the ways it draws from its obvious source material, it's strengths and weakness are defined by other pop
The warning that should come on the tin is that audiences shouldn’t go into this expecting anything like a “retelling” of The Wizard of Oz. It would be nearly impossible to give a clear idea of what’s happened to L. Frank Baum’s works here, but it isn’t just modernized, but dipped in the grime of reality, and subjected to an absolutely unfettered imagination. It covers elements of the first three books (and perhaps beyond… it’s been a while), but is “inspired by” in the broadest sense. Some characters in this effort are an amalgamation of two characters in the books,
The first video focuses on Adria Arjona, who’ll play Dorothy in this new version, as well as Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who’ll play a version-of-sorts of the Scarecrow called Lucas, and Joely Richardson, who’ll play Glinda. It certainly teases something grand and expensive, but are fans really going to eat up a darker, moodier, sexier version of The Wizard of Oz? That remains to be seen, but NBC is, at the very least, confident that audiences at home will go down this weathered Yellow Brick Road.
The second promo finds Vincent D’Onofrio, playing a nearly-unrecognizable version of the Wizard,

The site’s sources are telling them that Gilroy was brought in just to do some dialogue tweaks for $200k a week, but this has since grown to a net total of $5 million after he also stepped in to oversee the edit. According to THR’s sources, the reshoots “tackled several issues in the film, including the ending”.
A trailer released after the reshoots showed just how much influence Gilroy had on the film in the credits.

There’s, of course, the most iconic in films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Graduate, Psycho, and Un Chien Andalou. She also brings in a few examples from Park Chan-wook‘s Stoker, as well as three of Steven Spielberg‘s films, and more to show the wide-ranging uses (although we would have loved the inclusion of a few from Tarsem‘s The Fall).

I don’t require much. Just a producer credit on every Warner Bros. DC movie, a balloon payment of $16 million dollars in gold cougarans, and 8% of the merchandising. Wait. Sorry. Got ahead of myself. Before the fans and Warner Bros. shower me in warm, glistening adulation they probably want to hear my amazing, borderline genius ideas on how to save the DC Extended Universe.
Before I unveil my nine part strategy to turn Warner Bros.’ DC movies from languishing, critically panned, polarizing pictures into a money-making, universally loved, acclaimed blockbusters… let me say this:
Personally, I’ve enjoyed Zack Snyder’s DC movies as grotesque monstrosities. Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are two of the most opulent assaults of sight and sound I’ve ever seen. I’d love to see what Zack Snyder does

A ruthless old real-estate tycoon billionaire, Damian Hale (Ben Kingsley: Exodus: Gods and Kings), is dying of cancer, so he has his mind transferred to a younger body (Ryan Reynolds: Woman in Gold), as you do when you’re a ruthless old man wealthy beyond belief and terrified of your mortality. Of course he doesn’t ask the tough questions about the hush-hush project of clearly dubious morality, not even when the suave mad scientist in charge, Albright (Matthew Goode: The Imitation Game), smoothly notes with a slick grin that he’s not asking the right questions. This is
Tarsem, whose latest feature Self/Less is currently in theatres, is known to most film fans for his work on the 2006 feature The Fall. He currently has five features under his belt, along with an assortment of music videos, including that of Rem’s Losing My Religion, but has yet to work in television.
I think I’ve come to regard Ben Kingsley in the same manner. It all started with a film called Suspect Zero (though really, it must’ve really started with House of Sand and Fog
