Amazons Das Rad der Zeit: Endlich Diversity in einer Fantasy-Serie

Gerade sind alle Augen auf Amazons Das Rad der Zeit gerichtet. Zum Teil, weil die Serie als neues Game of Thrones gilt, und auch, weil es die aufwendigste Serie ist, die Amazon je produziert hat – vor allem aber, weil die Hauptrollen (im Gegensatz zu anderen Fantasy-Shows!) divers besetzt sind. Diverses Casting in Fantasy-Serien lässt noch immer mehr auf sich warten als in anderen Genres; echte Repräsentation sucht man vielerorts vergebens. Verglichen mit den beinahe ausschließlich weißen Darste...

Every Francis Ford Coppola Feature Ranked From Worst To Best

Out of all the New Hollywood directors to launch their careers in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Francis Ford Coppola is without a doubt one of the most famous. This is partially a result of his string of hits throughout the 1970s, many of which are serious contenders in any conversation about the best films ever made. But when you talk about Francis Ford Coppola, you also have to discuss the veritable film dynasty he would become the head of — it's sort of like "The Godfather," only with a bun...

Rams, 49ers Head Into 1st Meeting Off Tough Losses

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — About the only similarity for the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers heading into their first meeting of the season is the fact that both teams are coming off disappointing losses. But while Los Angeles’ defeat at the hands of Tennessee looks like a minor blip in an otherwise successful season, the Niners’ home loss to a short-handed Arizona team exposed the problems that have left them at the bottom of the division. After losing to San Francisco (3-5) all fo...

The Williams Sisters Only Agreed To Executive Produce King Richard After Seeing The Film

It doesn't matter how famous you are, there are always equally (or more!) famous people that can throw you into an anxiety loop. I personally love hearing about the situations that make incredibly successful people feel nervous, because it makes me feel better about my own nerves. I guess it's nice to know that anxiety is forever? Or something? That no one can escape it no matter what they do? I don't know. Maybe that's something I have to hash out with a professional. Anyway, Will Smith opened ...

12 Horror Movie Scenes That Scared Actors In Real Life

Actors in monster make-up sip coffee, practical effects wizards prep blood pumps, and onscreen victims ask the director about their motivation. Everyone knows what they're doing and what they're making and they leave the whole "being scared" thing for the audience. But that's not always the case. Sometimes, a filmmaker surprises their...
