Preacher Final Season Premiere Recap: It's the End of the Whirl as We Know It

Preacher Final Season Premiere Recap: It's the End of the Whirl as We Know It
“Feels like the end almost,” said Tulip at the beginning of Preacher’s fourth and final season premiere. And right she was. Though Sunday’s “Masada” and “The Last Supper” were every bit as violent and wacky as any other episodes — as a fan would hope, even demand — it definitely seemed like the series was working up to something. But what? Read on, and we’ll go over the clues, zany and inscrutable as they may be.

‘It’ Producer to Develop Wilderness Horror Movie ‘Sunburnt Country’
A feature film adaptation of Gabriel Bergmoser’s novel ”Sunburnt Country” is in development from “It” producer Roy Lee alongside Jon Berg and Greg Silverman.

Lee’s credits include both “It” movies, “The Ring,” “The Grudge,” the “Lego” movies, and “The Departed.”

Berg joined Vertigo in 2017 after serving as Warner Bros.’ co-president of production for a year and overseeing the studio’s DC films. Berg’s DC credits include “Justice League,” “Wonder Woman,” “Aquaman,” and the upcoming “Doctor Sleep.”

Silverman is the former president of Warner Bros. Pictures. His Stampede shingle is in production on its first movie, “Pink Skies Ahead,” starring Jessica Barden.

‘Sharp Objects’ Boss on Adapting Pivotal Story Ending: ‘We Called It the “Last Supper”‘

  • Variety
When uber-producer Marti Noxon read Gillian Flynn’s debut novel, “Sharp Objects,” she says she most admired the “incredible” and “unique” tale. But then she couldn’t shake it. The story — particularly its central figure, Camille, a troubled journalist who returned to her small hometown to investigate a series of brutal murders — stayed on Noxon’s mind, convincing her it was a project she should take on.

A Key Collaboration

Although the basic premise of the HBO limited series remained the same as the 2006 book, having eight episodes allowed for Noxon — and Flynn, who was part of the writing staff — to flesh out the story.

“One of the things we talked a lot about was sometimes you’re trying to re-create the feeling you get from the book and not the book itself,” Noxon says, adding that Flynn was always willing to hear her ideas for changes. “This was

Ari Aster Says Hereditary Follow-Up Midsommar’s A Psychedelic Fairytale

Horror wunderkind Ari Aster spooked audiences with last year’s family-destroying Hereditary. I brought my girlfriend at the time to a nice Friday night showing. She was a mother, and, boy, was she unhappy. I was tugging my collar like a madman. I’ll know better this time to bring any loved ones to Aster’s follow-up, Midsommar. The director’s sophomore effort is shaping up to be another stylish and slick spookfest, at least per that first short teaser that’s been released. Man, A24 knows how to cut a good trailer, huh?

Recently, Aster dished out some more info about his upcoming film during an interview with Entertainment Weekly, establishing the horror flick’s influences and tone. While Aster comments on the The Wicker Man similarities – they’re too obvious to ignore – he goes on to say how Midsommar differs from the seminal “guy dies in a giant wicker fire” genre.

‘First Meal’: Artist Explores Prisoner Exoneration Through Food

At first glance, it looks like a traditional food diary. A one-page questionnaire with simple prompts: “Who did you eat with? What did you order/have? Is there any particular reason you wanted the food you ordered or had?” The first questions, though, reveal a singular context: “Years in prison for wrongful conviction. Where did you eat your first meal after release?”

It’s the answers to these questions that artist Julie Green turns into poignant pieces of art. The Oregon State University professor (who prefers gender neutral pronouns) receives

Why Yes, That’s ‘Catfish’ Host Nev Schulman in Sandra Bullock’s ‘Bird Box’ Painting

Why Yes, That’s ‘Catfish’ Host Nev Schulman in Sandra Bullock’s ‘Bird Box’ Painting
Bird Box,” Netflix’s word-of-mouth streaming hit directed by Susanne Bier and starring Sandra Bullock, has nothing to with MTV’s long-running series “Catfish,” and yet there exists a strange link between the two properties. For some reason, “Catfish” host Nev Schulman is depicted in the painting viewers see Sandra Bullock’s character working on at the beginning of the movie.

Based on the novel of the same name by author Josh Malerman, “Bird Box” centers around a group of characters trying to evade unseen monsters who force those who look at them to commit suicide. Prior to the monsters first showing up, Bier and screenwriter Eric Heisserer introduce Bullock’s character, Malorie, as a painter whose apartment is full of works of art.

Malorie’s latest painting is a riff on Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, depicting pregnant Malorie at the center of a table surrounded by other people.

11 Crazy Nuns in Movies, from ‘Black Narcissus’ to ‘Sister Act’ (Photos)
The Nun,” a prequel to “The Conjuring” series of horror films, finds a young nun traveling to Romania to investigate a demon that has potentially latched itself onto a nun. With that premise, things are bound to get a little crazy. Of course, there’s a long history in film of taking chaste, pious women who have become nuns on film and testing their resolve, of taken their faith to wild extremes, or playing on that goodness for comedy. Say a few rosaries and check out these nun movies.

Sister Act” (1992)

Whoopi Goldberg goes into the witness protection program and winds up a jump-roping, gospel singing, foul-mouthed nun with Maggie Smith looking down her nose at her in “Sister Act.” The film made an ungodly sum as the sixth highest grossing movie of the year and spawned a sequel.

Depressing Avengers: Infinity War Fan Art Recreates The Last Supper With Remaining Heroes

Back in March of this year, Instagram artist BossLogic brought us an impressive tableau that recreated Da Vinci’s The Last Supper mural with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and associates. Of course, since then, Avengers: Infinity War hit theaters, and about half the inhabitants of this image were erased from the McU (if only temporarily), prompting BossLogic to offer a far more despondent update of his previous work.

If you compare the two images below, you’ll notice that the new version is a lot more sparsely populated in the wake of Infinity War’s genocidal conclusion, not to mention the various deaths that occurred in the lead-up. On top of that, the imagery is a lot more shadowy this time around, giving a grimly ironic edge to the “Teamwork” and “Revolution” posters.

While the signal-less TV in the background also serves as a welcome nod to the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp,

Ariana Grande performed her latest single “God Is A Woman,” bringing to life Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper at MTV’s Video Music Awards.

Grande took on the Jesus role and surrounded herself with a group of all-female apostles, a move that might ruffle some feathers on the Christian right. At the end, she brought out her mother and grandmother as fiancé Pete Davidson cheered her on while somewhere backstage Madonna wondered why this child was stealing her act.

Ariana Grande Channels The Last Supper During "God Is a Woman" Performance at MTV VMAs

Ariana Grande Channels The Last Supper During
Ariana Grande just spiced up her MTV Video Music Awards performance. The Sweetener singer took the stage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City during the annual awards show and she was far from alone. Grande was accompanied by a group of approximately 50 diverse women of all shapes, sizes and colors during her performance of "God Is a Woman." Grande's mom, nonna (grandma) and cousin walked out with the performer holding hands at the end of the song. The performance paid homage to The Last Supper as Grande and her fellow dancers sat at a long table, evoking Leonardo da Vinci's painting. The dancers wore crowns, sashes and bright colored pieces. In typical Grande style, the singer wore...

Is Pauly D the Actual Prank War Champion of the 'Jersey Shore' House?

Now that Jersey Shore Family Vacation is wrapped up, there are only three words left echoing in the background: Prank War Champion. And you can thank Pauly DelVecchio Aka reality TV's own DJ Pauly D for my migraine headache, spouting the phrase roughly 40 times an episode. In last night's season finale, "The Last Supper," Pauly pat himself on the back for being the ultimate Prank War Champion because he dialed up Angelina Pivarnick for an impromptu visit. And look, I've been talking about this extensively in my Jersey Shore recaps week-to-week, but I need to say it one more time for the people in the back: inviting Angelina to the house was not a prank, and I want his title revoked. Let's look back on the Og Jersey Shore pranks. This doesn't mean that once upon a time he didn't pull some inspired practical jokes, although when I think about Pauly D's greatest hits,

Ron Howard movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Apollo 13,’ ‘Splash,’ ‘A Beautiful Mind’
Sometimes it feels like Ron Howard has been around forever. Although the actor/director is in his 60’s, he’s been a star in TV and movies for over 55 years. From his early days playing Andy Griffith‘s son Opie on “The Andy Griffith Show” to his directing of the latest “Star Wars” story, “Solo,” the unassuming Howard still finds himself the center of attention.

Now primarily known as a director, Howard has won two Academy Awards — for producing and directing 2001’s Best Picture winner “A Beautiful Mind” starring Russell Crowe — and has two more nominations to his credit for producing and directing 2008 nominee “Frost/Nixon” starring Michael Sheen and Frank Langella.

With “Solo” in theaters, let’s take a photo gallery tour of his 15 greatest feature films, ranked from worst to best. Keep in mind that our gallery strictly focuses on his directing career and leaves out his terrific work as an actor in movies.

William Fox and His Friends, Part 2

Dressed to KillMore from MoMA's spectacular retrospective (see part 1 of our guide here), skimming the cream from the top of the William Fox archives, a major studio whose films, apart from a few known classics by Frank Borzage, John Ford, et cetera, have been sunk in obscurity for too long. Fox opened his doors to experimental geniuses like F.W. Murnau and Erik Charell, and encouraged major talents like Ford, Howard Hawks, Raoul Walsh and Borzage to spread their wings.In Borzage’s masterpiece 7th Heaven, how many viewers have any problem with the glaring fact that the garret where Janet Gaynor lives is apparently reached by two completely different stairwells, one that’s angular, for the crane shot, and one that’s spiral for the overhead angle?UpstreamThe idea is consistent with the expressionist approach at Fox. Edgar G. Ulmer claimed that the German expressionists would build a new set for every camera angle,

‘The Iceman Cometh’ Review: Denzel Washington Returns To Broadway, Shattering Pipe Dreams

‘The Iceman Cometh’ Review: Denzel Washington Returns To Broadway, Shattering Pipe Dreams
Well before Denzel Washington’s glad-handing salesman Hickey makes his fateful arrival in the dive bar of George C. Wolfe’s strong new Broadway staging of The Iceman Cometh, Eugene O’Neill’s collection of pipe-dreaming drunkards arrange themselves across their end-of-the-line cafe as if modeling for Leonardo’s “The Last Supper.”

All that’s missing is a savior.

Truth be told, O’Neill’s rum-bums need their messiah a lot more than this production does: Though certainly built around mega-star Washington, this Iceman is so well-cast and performed by, among others, David Morse, Bill Irwin and Tammy Blanchard, that Washington’s late, happy-dance entrance almost seems a worry. Is something delicate about to be knocked off balance?

And in some ways, it is. Washington, who
