During New York Comic Con, executive producer Damon Lindelof repeatedly stressed that Watchmen, as it stands now, is designed to be self-contained and not leave any loose ends at the end of season one.
"We designed these nine episodes to be as self-contained as the original 12 issues [of the comics]. We wanted to feel like there was a sense of completeness, to resolve the essential mystery at hand. Obviously, there is a potential promise for the further exploration of the world

There’s a difference between confronting evil and actually dismantling its assumptions. For all the good intentions of “Jojo Rabbit,” Taika Waititi’s “anti-hate satire” never contends with the Nazism at its core.

Those hopes were dashed relatively early on Friday, however, when local word of mouth for the action thriller turned tepid and Disney's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil began earning considerably more on a per-screen basis.
Local theater chains — as they do in China — responded in real time, shifting screens away from Gemini Man. By the time the dust settled on Sunday, Maleficent was the surprise weekend winner with $22.5 million, compared with Gemini Man's underwhelming $21 million ...

The third episode of season 10 of “The Walking Dead” played some interesting tricks on viewers this week, as the creative powers-that-be behind the AMC series decided to turn Carol (Melissa McBride) into a bit of an unreliable narrator.
In the episode, the residents of Alexandria faced a strange series of zombie incursions — incursions that the Whisperers claim they didn’t cause. The Alexandrians had to spend several straight days fighting off these groups of walkers, leading to pretty serious sleep deprivation for a bunch of the main characters.

With the premiere of HBO’s “Watchmen, we finally know how Damon Lindelof is tackling the acclaimed graphic novel written by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons: with both broad strokes and targeted precision.
Lindelof has described his version of “Watchmen” as a “remix” of the original comic, and that’s true. Featuring a new story and a new host of characters, it’s set 30 years after the events depicted in the comic, swapping 1980s Cold War anxieties for a contemporary story centered on race relations and police authority.
But the show frequently also makes it clear that the world in which it exists stems directly from the events of the comic. Below, TheWrap has rounded up every way those events are referenced in the premiere episode,
The protagonist of “Watchmen” is leading a double life. By day, she goes by Angela (Regina King) and is a bakery owner, daughter, wife and mother who is first introduced to the audience while visiting her son’s class. By night, or whenever the situation calls for it, though, she is Sister Night, a masked defender of society and those within it’s rights. Both sides to her offer her different ways to be a hero, albeit a complicated one.

Kennedy was one of the five presenters for this year’s Student Academy Awards — along with Melina Matsoukas, Gregory Nava, Phil Lord and Chris Miller — which honored 16 student winners from colleges and universities around the world.
While the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has existed since 1929, the student academy wasn’t founded until 1972 in an effort to encourage student filmmakers while acknowledging them for telling stories that do more than just entertain. Robert Zemeckis, Spike Lee and Patricia Riggen were past Student Academy Award recipients.
Kennedy praised this year’s “extraordinary winners,” saying,
Made on almost a sixth of the budget of “Justice League” at just $55 million, “Joker” has exploded into the top 10 highest grossing movies of the year with $737 million grossed after just 3 weekends in theaters worldwide.
On the other hand, even though “Justice League” sported all of DC’s most popular superheroes — including Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman — it performed below its pedigree two years ago by grossing just $657 million worldwide. Considering that a solo film like “Wonder Woman” outperformed it and the “Avengers” films have made as much as four times that amount, it was a disappointment even as it turned a profit for Warner Bros.
