Link Tank: In the Tall Grass Is Classic Stephen King Horror

Spencer Mullen Sep 23, 2019

In the Tall Grass, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Death Stranding, and more in today's daily Link Tank!

Here are the three reasons why a planet from the prequels may return in The Rise of Skywalker.

"For a thousand generations, the Republic and the Jedi Knights kept the peace in the galaxy, governing from the planet Coruscant. Since 1991, Star Wars fans have thought of Coruscant as a pivotal planet, a place filled with tons of history — and also a great cityscape for a good chase sequence. The prequel trilogy’s most pivotal scenes happened on Coruscant, and now, as the Skywalker saga is set to end in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, there’s a strong argument that this film needs to check in on the famous planet. In fact, there are three compelling reasons why Rise of Skywalker will be incomplete with Coruscant. Here

Sean Bean Characters Have Been Killed So Much He Now Rejects Roles Where He Dies

Sean Bean Characters Have Been Killed So Much He Now Rejects Roles Where He Dies
If you’ve seen a Sean Bean movie or television series over the last decade then chances are high you’ve watched a Sean Bean character die. The actor’s career is full of characters who have not survived to the end of the story, so much so that a 2011 YouTube compilation of Sean Bean character deaths went viral with nearly 2 million views. In a new interview with The Sun, Bean said his infamous history of dying onscreen has changed the way he considers agreeing to a film or television role. The actor has started turning down roles in which his character will die, but not out of an ego-driven desire for more screen time.

“I’ve turned down stuff. I’ve said, ‘They know my character’s going to die because I’m in it!’” Bean told The Sun. “I just had to cut that out and start surviving,

Don’t laugh! 45% say it’s about time that Joaquin Phoenix wins an Oscar for ‘Joker’ [Poll Results]
Even before “Joker” took its bow before the crowd at the Venice film festival on Saturday and earned an eight-minute standing ovation, Gold Derby-ites had already chosen its star Joaquin Phoenix as the most overdue lead actor who is likely to show up on the 2020 Oscar ballot in a poll.

Jack Nicholson cackled and leered his way through his role as the Caped Crusader’ arch-nemesis in Tim Burton’s 1989 “Batman” while Heath Ledger brought a quiet damaged-goods menace to the Joker in Chris Nolan’s 2008 “The Dark Knight” and won a posthumous supporting Oscar for his efforts. Both Jared Leto in 2016’s “Suicide Squad” and Cesar Romero on the campy ’60s TV series also gave the Clown Prince of Gotham City a spin.

But Phoenix and director Todd Phillips go the origins story route and get to the root of Arthur Fleck’s personality crisis that eventually builds up quite a body count.

Will Noah Centineo be the next heartthrob to win Breakthrough Performance at the MTV Movie and TV Awards?

The MTV Movie and TV Awards are voted on by fans online, which is usually good news for teen idols with passionate fan bases. This year that could benefit Noah Centineo, the 23-year-old heartthrob who appeared on “The Fosters” for three years but broke through in 2018 and 2019 thanks to the Netflix rom-coms “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” “Sierra Burgess is a Loser” and “The Perfect Date.” He’s nominated for Best Breakthrough Performance for “All the Boys.” Is he bound to win?

Lots of young heartthrobs have won this award in the past, including James Van Der Beek (“Varsity Blues”), Orlando Bloom (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”), Zac Efron (“Hairspray”) and Robert Pattinson (“Twilight”). And the fact that Centineo has had such success on a platform like Netflix might also help him since that streaming service has such a wide reach and

Amazon’s ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Series Lays Out Possible Direction, Literally
There is “no timetable” according to Amazon Studios boss Jennifer Salke for the launching of the streamer’s already much hyped series based on The Lord of the Rings. However,it looks like there is a new way to find out what’s going on in the “darkest depths of Mordor,” to quote those J.R.R Tolkien fans Led Zeppelin.

Having revealed a handful of social media handles for the Jd Payne and Patrick McKay developed series earlier this week at TCA and teasing that they are “making great progress,” Salke and Amazon are now providing a map, literally.

Today online, the Jeff Bezos-founded company dropped the latest in a cryptic trio of inaugural tweets – and there may be some clues in the quest to discover what’s coming.

It won’t be perfect this year, but how often have the SAG Awards and Oscar winners matched?

It won’t be perfect this year, but how often have the SAG Awards and Oscar winners matched?
After the same four people became the first quartet to run the table with all the major acting awards last year en route to Oscar gold, it’s refreshing to know that we definitely won’t get that sheep mentality rubber-stamping this year.

The Golden Globe Best Actor champs Christian Bale (“Vice”) and Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) have already split the Critics’ Choice (Bale) and Screen Actors Guild Awards (Malek). Globe and Critics’ Choice supporting actress winner Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”) was snubbed at SAG and BAFTA. And SAG gave its supporting actress statuette to an Oscar snubbee, Emily Blunt (“A Quiet Place”), for the second time in four years, guaranteeing that the four SAG Awards winners — Glenn Close (“The Wife”) and Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”) being the others — won’t all go on to win the corresponding Oscar.

The SAG Awards has a good track record with the academy.

Aquaman Overtakes The Dark Knight Rises To Become Highest-Grossing DC Movie

Aquaman was not seen as a guaranteed hit for Warner Bros. before its release. After all, Justice League had sunk both critically and commercially in 2017 and that’s the film that introduced Jason Momoa’s King of Atlantis to moviegoers. However, Aquaman and Justice League are as different as chalk and cheese and worldwide audiences haven’t stopped swimming into cinemas to see it.

Earlier this month, Aquaman crossed the coveted $1 billion mark at the box office, making it the most successful movie in the Worlds of DC franchise. Now, James Wan’s aquatic action/adventure flick has officially passed The Dark Knight Rises to become the highest-grossing DC film of all-time. Christopher Nolan’s closer to his Dark Knight trilogy previously held the accolade with its $1.085 billion gross, but Aquaman has just sailed past it and currently stands at $1.091 billion.

Will ‘Roma’ break the Oscar curse against black-and-white cinematography? Experts think so

Will ‘Roma’ break the Oscar curse against black-and-white cinematography? Experts think so
Cinematographers love black-and-white movies. You can tell that by how often they’re nominated and win at the American Society of Cinematographers Awards, and by how often the cinematographers branch of the motion picture academy nominates black-and-white films. But when Oscar voters across all branches of the academy pick the winners they usually steer clear of monochromatic films and look for a splash of color. Will this year be an exception? “Roma” has been acclaimed for its black-and-white visuals by director and cinematographer Alfonso Cuaron, and the Expert journalists we’ve polled think it will prevail.

So just how cursed are black-and-white movies? Well, none have won Best Cinematography at the Oscars since “Schindler’s List” (1993) — that was a quarter century ago. You might argue that that’s just how it is since there are simply far more color movies produced these days, so you’re bound to have more color winners.
