Bugs Bunny gasps in fear as fur appears up his arm, sprouting across his body against his will and transforming his two-dimensional self into something… different.

To categorize Space Jam: A New Legacy as body horror might seem like a stretch, but the unnatural transformation the Looney Tunes undergo after the movie?s villain decides to “upgrade” the 2D cartoon characters into computer-generated 3D creatures is unnerving, to say the least.

While much has already been said of the Space Jam sequel?s blatant use of nostalgia for old Warner Bros. properties via the concept of the “Serververse,” the LeBron James vehicle tries to be a looney adventure with some basketball thrown in. By showing how unnatural it is for cartoon animals to take on realistic forms and textures, Space Jam 2 actually offers a much more nuanced and striking commentary on CG animated remakes of 2D cartoons.

In Space Jam 2, LeBron James and his son are trapped inside the Serververse by an algorithm named Al-G Rhythm (Don Cheadle), who kidnaps LeBron’s son and forces the NBA star to play a game of basketball or lose his family forever. While the first half of the movie is animated in 2D (including the bizarre choice to create a cartoon version of Lebron), Al-G Rhythm turns the cartoons into CG-3D characters so they can play basketball in three dimensions.

The Looney Tunes freak out at their new bodies. While Bugs Bunny is covered in fur, Porky Pig has a soft spongy texture that’s rather unsettling. Their motions also seem more realistic, with subtle movements replacing the chaotic, frantic movement the Tunes are known for. It takes away what makes them so special.

Bugs Bunny is not too happy about his ?upgrade.? Warner Bros.

This is a trend we’ve been seeing a lot of in the past few years. Studios take traditionally animated 2D cartoons and turn them into CG-3D creatures to appear more realistic and modern. The results are mixed, at best.

In the pursuit of photorealism, however, these redesigns lose the type of expressions and movements that make 2D cartoons appealing in the first place. After all, cartoons can get away with whatever they want since the two-dimensional drawings instantly trigger our suspension of disbelief. We recognize these are not real people and they don?t need to follow real-world rules.

The moment a cartoon goes for 3D realism, it loses that suspension of disbelief, as it aims for something more grounded that then has to follow the laws of physics.

Sonic the Hedgehog earned a lot of internet outrage when it released its first trailer. Paramount Pictures

Take Sonic the Hedgehog. When the first trailer for Sonic came out, the internet blew up in outrage over the design of its protagonist, which came with new human-like proportions and teeth, despite its protagonist being a blue hedgehog that runs real fast. The Rugrats reboot is another instance of this trend. The movie exchanged Nickelodeon?s original ugly, weird, and asymmetrical designs for smoother, softer babies that lack any charm or flexibility.

In both these cases, as well as the new Space Jam, the transition from hand-drawn 2D to CG-3D is both weightless and soulless. Realistic characters no longer stretch, transform or distort like, you know, cartoons, and instead focus on realism while still never fully feeling like real characters.

Pixar movies get away with this because the entire film is computer-generated, and it doesn?t try to trick you into thinking otherwise. But when you take characters that the audience already recognizes as 2D creatures and then make them 3D, you lose that vital the suspension of disbelief.

Who doesn?t love Detective Pikachu?Warner Bros.

Detective Pikachu is one recent movie that does get away with realistic redesigns of 2D characters. The live-action Pokémon movie avoided this fate by sticking to the original Pokémon silhouettes but altering enough that these creatures could live and survive in our world. This mostly meant giving certain Pokémon fur.

It works because the Pokémon look tactile enough that they fit in the world of the movie while still looking cartoonish enough that you don’t think of them as real creatures, but as slightly altered versions of the animated series.

Space Jam: A New Legacy almost got away with a seamless animation/live-action hybrid, at least at first. Before the main basketball event kicks in, we are treated to what is essentially a Looney Tunes movie about disrupting popular Warner Bros. properties that feels like a big-budget Animaniacs episode.

The first half of the movie is essentially LeBron animated in 2D, recruiting the Looney Tunes for his basketball team. The only problem is that each of them has been scattered throughout the Serververse, landing in such classic Warner Bros. properties as The Matrix, Superman: The Animated Series, and Casablanca. Even if seeing Granny in Trinity’s shoes in a Matrix scene is jarring and a little bit cringe-y, the combination of 2D cartoons and live-action footage is seamless because it’s aiming for comedy, not realism.

Wile E. Coyote gets the Mad Max treatment.Warner Bros.

In the original Space Jam, many of the funniest moments came from the Looney Tunes following cartoon physics while Michael Jordan looked bewildered. This technique also worked in films like Mary Poppins or Who Framed Roger Rabbit for decades because they draw attention to the jarring juxtaposition between real people and 2D cartoons and work it into the plot, usually for comedy.

In A New Legacy, a scene where Wile E. Coyote rides with the War Boys in Mad Max: Fury Road works, not necessarily because it looks realistic, but because the sheer chaotic energy of this character and film make for a hilariously ? dare we say ? looney scene.

A lot of the conversation around Space Jam: A New Legacy has been about it being a shameless nostalgia cash-grab that also serves to promote all the Warner Bros. properties available on HBO Max. Even if the film?s commentary on algorithms dictating what movies get made falls flat, the film does offer a poignant piece of commentary around the current state of animation. It shows how the pursuit of 3D animation for the sake of realism takes away from what makes cartoons special in the first place.

Al-G Rhythm may have kidnapped hundreds of people to witness a basketball game and held them hostage, but his most evil act was taking the Tunes out of Looney Tunes.

Space Jam: A New Legacy is streaming on HBO Max through August 15.

In 2015, Marvel Comics proposed the most interesting Blade concept in decades – so why didn’t Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey ever appear?

Back in 2015, Marvel announced a new series that would introduce Fallon Grey, the daughter of Blade – and here’s why that story never happened. As little as fans may like to admit it, the sad truth is that Marvel Comics has largely failed Blade. Although the vampire hunter was introduced back in 1973, it wasn’t until he hit the big-screen in the ’90s that the comic book publisher really began to see his potential – and it’s telling that they swiftly redesigned the character to correspond to the cinematic version, who was very different to the traditional Blade. Director Bassam Tariq, who will helm the MCU relaunch of Blade, recently noted he doesn’t feel especially restricted by Blade’s comics canon – simply because none of Blade‘s runs have ever lasted long, or made much of an impression in the public consciousness. Blade’s comic book history really does feel as though it can be summed up with the phrase “missed opportunity.”


One of the worst of those missed opportunities was in 2015 when Marvel Comics announced probably the most interesting Blade idea in decades. As part of the “All-New All-Different” relaunch, Marvel announced a new series featuring the creative team of Tim Seeley and Logan Faerber, Blade the Hunter, in which Marvel’s greatest vampire hunter would team up with a high school student. Fallon was a 16-year-old who Seeley envisioned as the “anti-Peter-Parker,” a popular and well-liked girl who was shaken to learn Blade was actually her father, and who deeply resented being forced to join the family business. “They’ll be completely and totally antagonistic,” Seeley promised in an interview with CBR, “and the fun will be in seeing whether a guy like Blade can become a father, and whether a girl like Fallon can become a student and a daughter.” The idea immediately drew a lot of attention, and there were even numerous reports Marvel Studios was watching this play out with real interest.

And then it all went horribly wrong for Blade the Hunter. No doubt Seeley seemed a natural choice as writer for Marvel Comics; as he quipped, “it feels like those twelve years of writing teenage girls fighting monsters is finally being recognized. It’s like Marvel is saying, “Congratulations on your double PHD in ‘Adolescent Female Angst and Monster Stabbery.’ Have a job!” But the fan reaction online took a different direction to anything Marvel expected, with many outraged that – yet again – a white writer had been assigned a comic starring black characters, and introducing a prominent new one. Understanding the criticism, Seeley quit Blade the Hunter. “After a while, I felt like it was me screwing this up,” he explained months later. “I couldn?t help but feel like a black woman might write this stuff better than me and saved them from me. In the wake of ‘Black Panther’ launching so well, maybe ‘Blade’ is the book they find new talent on.

Blade Fallon Grey Design

Marvel never did assign any new talent to Blade the Hunter, though. They seem to have been discouraged by the backlash to the original proposal, and instead abandoned the most interesting idea in Blade comics since 1998. To be fair to the publisher, Fallon would have made her debut at a time when they were focusing on creating a new wave of legacy heroes, and Marvel began to shift away from that approach a couple of years later. Fallon Grey no longer fit with Marvel’s corporate direction, and so she was forgotten.

Marvel is currently attempting to increase Blade’s profile in the comics ahead of his MCU debut, even establishing Blade as a member of the Avengers; it’s not quite working, because the vampire nation arcs sit uncomfortably alongside tales of gods and monsters, demons and intergalactic empires. Hopefully that means they’ll pivot back to Blade the Hunter at some point in the future, and Fallon Grey will get to appear after all.

(the winner of the Cinéma du Réel Festival?s French competition in 2016, which also competed in the Karlovy Vary gathering that same year) and Danton’s death (rewarded at the Cinéma du Réel Festival in 2011), Alice Diop is gearing up to make the leap to fiction and is set to begin shooting Saint-Omer at the end of May. The film is loosely based on a true story which hit the headlines in France in 2013, with a cast headed up by Swiss actress Kayije Kagame (very well-known in the theatre world; soon to appear in the series entitled H24, 24h of a woman’s life) and Guslagie Malanda (the breakthrough actress of My Friend Victoria [+see also:

).

(The article continues below – Commercial information)

Written by Alice Diop in league with the famous author Marie Ndiaye (White Material [+see also:

]
) and Amrita David (the director?s trusty editor), the story sees thirty-something novelist Rama attend the trial of Laurence Coly at the Saint-Omer Criminal Court. The latter is accused of killing her fifteen-month-old daughter by abandoning her on a beach in the north of France just as the tide was rising. Rama would like to use this story to write a modern-day adaptation of the ancient myth of Medea, but things don?t go as planned during the trial. Ultimately, it will be Rama?s relationship with motherhood which is called into question during this ?huis clos? trial?

Saint-Omer is produced by Christophe Barral and Toufik Ayadi on behalf of SRAB Films, in co-production with Arte France Cinéma. Pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature film also enjoys the support of the CNC (by way of an advance on receipts and the Images de la Diversité Fund), as well as the backing of the Ile-de-France and Hauts-de-France regions (courtesy of Pictanovo), where the seven-week film shoot will unfold. Distribution in France will be managed by Diaphana and international sales by Wild Bunch International.

For the record, previous films offered up by SRAB Films include the multi-award-winning work Wretched [+see also:

by Lady Ly, and, in post-production, Magnetics by Vincent Cardona, The villains by the duo composed of Mouloud Achour and Dominique Baumard (due for release in French cinemas on 8 September), Hugo Sobelman?s documentary Soul Kids (to be released 24 November 2021) and Nadčge Loiseau?s Three times nothing (read our article).

(the winner of the Cinéma du Réel Festival?s French competition in 2016, which also competed in the Karlovy Vary gathering that same year) and Danton’s death (rewarded at the Cinéma du Réel Festival in 2011), Alice Diop is gearing up to make the leap to fiction and is set to begin shooting Saint-Omer at the end of May. The film is loosely based on a true story which hit the headlines in France in 2013, with a cast headed up by Swiss actress Kayije Kagame (very well-known in the theatre world; soon to appear in the series entitled H24, 24h of a woman’s life) and Guslagie Malanda (the breakthrough actress of My Friend Victoria [+see also:

Written by Alice Diop in league with the famous author Marie Ndiaye (White Material [+see also:

) and Amrita David (the director?s trusty editor), the story sees thirty-something novelist Rama attend the trial of Laurence Coly at the Saint-Omer Criminal Court. The latter is accused of killing her fifteen-month-old daughter by abandoning her on a beach in the north of France just as the tide was rising. Rama would like to use this story to write a modern-day adaptation of the ancient myth of Medea, but things don?t go as planned during the trial. Ultimately, it will be Rama?s relationship with motherhood which is called into question during this ?huis clos? trial?

Saint-Omer is produced by Christophe Barral and Toufik Ayadi on behalf of SRAB Films, in co-production with Arte France Cinéma. Pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature film also enjoys the support of the CNC (by way of an advance on receipts and the Images de la Diversité Fund), as well as the backing of the Ile-de-France and Hauts-de-France regions (courtesy of Pictanovo), where the seven-week film shoot will unfold. Distribution in France will be managed by Diaphana and international sales by Wild Bunch International.

For the record, previous films offered up by SRAB Films include the multi-award-winning work Wretched [+see also:

As each June 21, we celebrate the Music’s day with the emotion of being able to thank our favorite artists for what they have done for us. Not always literally, of course, but some of his songs have accompanied us in the most important and memorable moments of our lives. Whether it’s imitating a guitar solo or dancing to a catchy chorus, we’ve gotten excited, laughed, and cried at the noble art of song and that’s a dingo to celebrate.

However, we tend to think that those who put a voice and a face to those songs that mark us are the only people who participate in that connection with us and it is never too late to reflect and recognize that this is not true at all. Because, have you ever thought about the amount of artists who stayed on the verge of success and they never saw their work recognized? And in those that appear in the credits with tiny letters and we have never sharpened our eyes to see who it is?

We can understand that they are unanswered questions, but we believe that, once you have read this article, you are going to look beyond the famous on duty that puts the name on the cover of your favorite album.

Ester Dean

His name may not sound like anything to you, but you have surely sung his songs (or part of them) a million times. Some of us met her as a result of the play The song factory by John Seabrook, where part of what has been and is his work was exposed: create hooks. These are the small musical parts that manage to hook whoever hears them and remain in their memory no matter how much they want to erase it.

And what can we attribute to his pencil and paper? Lines and phrases of all kinds that you have lived with for years. From the “she, she, eh, eh, eh” of success Umbrella from Rihanna and Jay-Z to the Roar by Katy Perry. How did you stay?

Ike White

Another character that we might not know, if it weren’t for the fact that the director Daniel Vernon recovered his name for his latest documentary, All the lives of Ike White (2019). The truth is that this man’s life did not lack anything, perhaps fame, but the rest he had … and in abundance.

Women, drugs and alcohol were part of his daily routine and he spent several years of his life in prison, where he created the funk album Changin? Times. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder and decided to take his own life. Fame did not come to him at the time despite the quality of the album, but we cannot deny that he is a being worthy of prying.

Sixto Rodriguez

If not for the documentary that received the Oscar Award in 2012, Searching For Sugar Man, many today would not know the figure of this artist born in Detroit. Just for having done it in the cradle of Motown could be the incentive to have achieved some recognition, but neither the industry nor the public did it and he fell into the most absolute disgrace for a musician: anonymity.

It was very far from the country where he was born, in South Africa, where he established himself as the essential artist that he was (be careful, he influenced groups such as The Beatles or Simon & Garfunkel). At a time when repression and discrimination were the norm, critical and committed music from Sixto was a reference. When he found out, he gave several concerts, but decided to continue with his modest lifestyle.

Karen Dalton

It sounds macabre, but it is very sad to praise the figure of an artist of the caliber of Karen Dalton many years after his death. However, she is one of the most recognized folk singers for the emblems of popular music, such as Bob Dylan O Nick Cave (The latter is a declared fan).

Karen was a very peculiar woman: she disliked the lucrative profile of the music industry, had constant personality changes, and hated singing in public. On occasion, by the way, it has been said that it could be la Billie Holiday del folk. With a depressive and melancholic attitude, she died at the age of 55 practically alone, after a turbulent life marked by the use of amphetamines.

By the way, his life has already been transferred to the screen in documentary format, In My Own Time: A Portrait of Karen Dalton, in November 2020, but it has not yet arrived in Spain.

John Davis

At the end of last month the news of the death of John Davis, the real vocalist of Milli y Vanilli who spent years and years away from the spotlight, inside the recording studio. This is because this rap duo was a sham conceived by record producer Frank Farian, who hired them for their extraordinary dancing skills.

The voice was something else … there was a way to fake it and it was through playback. They were handsome and knew how to dance, but the lie did not last long. After winning the Grammy Award in the category of Best New Artist, the producer gave them away and ended his short-lived career. Its unfortunate end led to a spiral of crimes and hospitalizations of one of them, Rob Pilatus, who was found dead at only 34 years old. A tragedy.

Without a doubt, Netflix movies they have been, for many, the mental and entertaining lifeline with which to spend their days at home.

In these times the term of “Toxic relationship”, which refers to a courtship in which the couple, rather than benefit and make you happy, causes you bitterness, problems and depression.

In this article we will talk about toxic relationships and Netflix movies that will show you the dangers of falling into one.

“Blue Valentine”, one of the Netflix movies that reflects the reality of many

Starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, this Netflix movie focuses on a happy, in love couple who decide to get married, thinking they were meant for each other and spending their lives together.

However, as time passes, the relationship becomes problematic and conflictual, especially after a daughter came into their lives.

Both make the effort to stay together for the benefit of the little girl, but it is evident that the love simply ended between the two.

“Gone Girl”, the extremes that can be reached in a toxic relationship

With Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as stars and much praise from the critics, “Gone Girl” is a film that shows how far you can go in a toxic relationship.

It all starts with a happy couple who were hit by misfortune, ending with the sudden disappearance of his wife.

The husband contacts the police, who do everything he can to find out what happened to the woman, however, as detectives investigate more and more, they discover that the happy couple is just a facade.

A Netflix movie that is full of hatred, revenge and resentment between two people who, at one point in their lives, were completely sure that they had found their soul mate.

“Never again”, a very common reality

Jennifer Lopez plays the role of a happily married woman with a beautiful daughter, yet her husband doesn’t turn out to be what she thinks he is.

In this film, the desperate woman will do everything to get away from her spouse, a powerful man who filled her and her daughter with comforts and luxuries, but who charged it with physical violence and abuse, or so it appears.

“The eternal radiance of a mind without memories”, one of Netflix’s films with great potential

It is possible that at some point you have gone through a toxic relationship and you could have very bad memories of that couple, to the point of wishing you had never met them and not remembering anything about them at all.

In this film, the protagonists will have the opportunity to make that dream come true, as they will find a device capable of changing the past and will take advantage of it to try to change their toxic relationship of several years.

All in order to never fall in love with the other.

For Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott, Aladdin ?The animated film of 1992? it is a special story in their lives. Both with roots of the Middle East, but raised far away from that region of the world -Canada and United Kingdom respectively- they found in this story a model that represented them on screen, something that at their young age they had never seen or in another movie of Disney, nor in general.

It is with that previous personal history that the destiny of both was marked without knowing that now they would become that example that they saw so much as children when embodying Aladdin and Jasmine in the new live-action film of Disney which is directed by Guy Ritchie, and of which We had the opportunity to chat about the creative process with them on their visit to the CDMX In the past week.

While the movie of Aladdin is a classic animation of Disney with very well defined characters, What were the new elements that you brought to the characters?

Personally, I focused on the Aladdin story arc and made the decision not to watch the animated film any more after receiving the first callback. It was essential to focus on the issues that my character goes through: he is an orphan who has to grow up and survive on the streets. This makes him a man and it was from there that I developed how that stage passes, focusing on the journey that he goes through.

? Mena Massoud

Similar to Mena, I wanted to humanize Jasmine. Honor the character and his journey. Making it rounder so that her situation and what she was fighting for felt more real. In a way it was putting a little twist on the character to show this, but in essence it continues what can be seen in the animated film.

? Naomi Scott

Source: Daniel Smith / Disney Enterprises

For the development of this story, Disney decided to hire Guy Ritchie, who has experience in films full of action and danger as it is Aladdin. So much Men What Naomi they agree on how good it was to work alongside him.

What I liked about working with him was the freedom to get closer and ask him more about my character to get to know her better and understand him better. In addition, Guy Ritchie gave all his characteristic style to this film, which you can see on screen and even when this film is aimed at a family audience you can feel his stamp.

? Mena Massoud

I totally agree with Mena. Besides that Guy has a wonderful tone that only he can bring. Basically? we love it!

? Naomi Scott

And if something can be proud Guy RitchieIt is the chemistry between them, their protagonists, who reveal that much of it was due to the friendship that was generated between the two. Taking them to live in the same condominium, do various activities together in their free time, and on set rehearse looking into each other’s eyes for more than 30 seconds, and although it sounds strange, they claim that it worked. Naomi He also adds that since he saw Men at the casting he learned that he was Aladdin.

But yes Guy Ritchie was a fundamental figure to develop this story, Will Smith It is something magical and phenomenal, making the set a party every time he is there. Massoud. While, Naomi Scott he does not stop praising his partner:

Will is the best. He’s a generous guy on and off screen. I wanted this experience to be the best. Plus he set the pace and tone, and Guy would say the same. It’s a constant stream of positivity.

? Naomi Scott

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9co2qyBIS0

Among the various challenges they faced to bring this story to reality were dance rehearsals where Men highlighted the work of Naomi, who seems to be a born dancer. Meanwhile, in the singing part, the challenge was to reinterpret classic themes such as A Whole New World in which they had to rescue the essence of the song and adapt new chords to have their own version of the song, This was assured by its protagonists. They also ventured to launch new songs that ?? More than being part of a story under the supervision of Disney, they are themes with a powerful message “. This is what he points out Naomi Scott, who was in charge of interpreting Speechless, one of the new songs from the movie.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwTogmKwYWo

And even though Aladdin was the first story of Disney in focusing on the figure of a prince as the protagonist and not on his female counterpart, Naomi Scott ensures that this has a lot of feminine charge in its history.

Of course it is a story that has to do with female empowerment. But it is also a story that shows self discovery and self acceptance on all levels and regardless of gender.

? Naomi Scott

On this same topic, she highlighted the importance of women joining roles that until a few years ago were only for men. In the case of the entertainment industry, she applauded that they take roles behind the scenes and that it is women who tell stories of other women, which can give you a clearer and more authentic view of it.

Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott they also highlighted the importance of this type of stories in the new generations and how it was that despite being a well-known story they can surprise the greatest.

In terms of being an example, it seems fair to say and show that not all of us are perfect and that sometimes we fail and that is okay. It is challenging this idea of ??gender roles, there is no one way to do it. And this is exactly what people want to see, different things that reflect everything in the world.

? Naomi Scott

The fundamental thing about Aladdin is that it shows children what love and mutual support is, in order to get away from the idea where men are the leaders of the relationship, or the head of a house and that is exactly what it does. this movie. It also shows that your circumstances or age do not matter, they are issues that you will experience sometime in your life. And as for surprising adults, everything that made us fall in love with the animated version is there.

Meanwhile, in the singing part, the challenge was to reinterpret classic themes such as A Whole New World in which they had to rescue the essence of the song and adapt new chords to have their own version of the song, This was assured by its protagonists. They also ventured to launch new songs that ?? More than being part of a story under the supervision of Disney, they are themes with a powerful message “. This is what he points out Naomi Scott, who was in charge of interpreting Speechless, one of the new songs from the movie.

And even though Aladdin was the first story of Disney in focusing on the figure of a prince as the protagonist and not on his female counterpart, Naomi Scott ensures that this has a lot of feminine charge in its history.

Of course it is a story that has to do with female empowerment. But it is also a story that shows self discovery and self acceptance on all levels and regardless of gender.

? Naomi Scott

On this same topic, she highlighted the importance of women joining roles that until a few years ago were only for men. In the case of the entertainment industry, she applauded that they take roles behind the scenes and that it is women who tell stories of other women, which can give you a clearer and more authentic view of it.

Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott they also highlighted the importance of this type of stories in the new generations and how it was that despite being a well-known story they can surprise the greatest.

In terms of being an example, it seems fair to say and show that not all of us are perfect and that sometimes we fail and that is okay. It is challenging this idea of ??gender roles, there is no one way to do it. And this is exactly what people want to see, different things that reflect everything in the world.

? Naomi Scott

The fundamental thing about Aladdin is that it shows children what love and mutual support is, in order to get away from the idea where men are the leaders of the relationship, or the head of a house and that is exactly what it does. this movie. It also shows that your circumstances or age do not matter, they are issues that you will experience sometime in your life. And as for surprising adults, everything that made us fall in love with the animated version is there.

They so rarely open up like this and you can’t help but wonder what Prince Philip would think of a programme all about him.

Camilla described him as man who was “the epitome of the stiff upper lip”.

And his own son, Prince Edward said he was a man you could “never ask to blow his own trumpet”.

And yet for an hour his family, and some of those who worked for him, tell the story of his life and his achievements in their own words.

Prince Philip with the Queen

It isn’t a solemn or mournful reflection of the father and grandfather they obviously cared so much about. This is the Windsors letting us in on a few family secrets, full of smiles and laughter.

Their feelings of pride and great fondness for him shine through, just as it did back in April when we saw those incredibly moving tributes to their Papa and Grandpa in the days after he died.

It’s when they describe his mischievous, cheeky side that his family most light up. Prince William, and his cousins Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall all recall the same joke their grandfather would play on them, which involved squirting mustard on the ceiling.

William on Philip: He loved playing tricks

William says: “He used to take the lid off and put it in your hands… and then he’d squish your hands together to fire the mustard onto the ceiling.

“He used to get in a lot of trouble from my grandmother for covering most of the places we had lunch and things with mustard on the ceiling.”

Both William and Prince Harry also separately talk about how the Queen and Philip would enjoy it if things went amiss on royal engagements, while the Prince of Wales said his father’s attempts to teach him carriage driving failed because Charles kept laughing hysterically.

William says: “My grandfather loved things when they go wrong. Both my grandparents love that because you can imagine, they’ve lived a life where everything has to go right the whole time and so when things go wrong, they both chuckle an awful lot. Everyone else gets mortally embarrassed. They love it.”

Harry, who was filmed separately, echoes William’s thoughts, saying: “The two of them are going ‘Well I wonder if something’s gonna go wrong this year? How exciting’.”

Charles on Philip: He turned BBQ into an art form

Talking about his attempts to join his father carriage driving Prince Charles says: “It didn’t last very long because, I don’t know why, I got complete hysterics driving the thing up the long walk with him getting more and more annoyed that I wasn’t concentrating properly.”

The documentary also takes you inside Prince Phillip’s office, showing the various gadgets he had fitted.

His grandson Peter Philips says: “I just have memories of him getting a new laptop or a new printer, sitting in his office and hearing him shouting at it.”

Harry on Philip: He would sit calmly as we zoomed around

From Prince Harry describing how the Duke would fly the plane on royal tours to keep his hours up, to Princess Eugenie explaining that her grandpa painted her a bunch of flowers for her wedding day, the programme is full of touching anecdotes. You’ll also see more of members of the family who don’t often take centre stage.

Some of the interviews were filmed before the Duke died, in anticipation of his 100th birthday while others were shot after his death.

Whenever they were filmed it’s clear that as a family they would have decided this was the right time for the programme to be broadcast.

Like any other family that has lost a loved one, they appear to have taken time to look through the old photographs, talk about their favourite memories and are now ready to share with the world their recollections of a man they loved and respected very much.

Marvel?s What If?? is now in the final third of its first season, and with all the madness, mayhem, and Multiverse came a slew of new actors voicing our popular heroes, one of which was the fan-favorite, Spider-Man.

Since 2016, Tom Holland has been the World?s cinematic Spider-Man. Debuting in Captain America: Civil War, the web-slinging superhero is one of the MCU?s most popular Avengers. With two solo films already under his belt, Holland will return this December in his third and final headline outing as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, but as it happens, the MCU quietly debuted a new Spidey actor despite Holland?s upcoming appearance in the onscreen Marvel Universe. That actor has now spoken out.

Heading quickly toward its climax, Marvel?s What If?? has introduced fans to new characters and alternate realities. The show ? which debuted August 11 exclusively on Disney+ ? brings together the Multiverse?s greatest heroes, with their stories being told by the show?s narrator, The Watcher (Jeffrey Wright). While Wright is a newcomer to the MCU, most of the huge catalog of actors have returned to reprise their characters for the small screen, and the show may even have the MCU?s next big crossover event if the new trailer is anything to go by!

Off the back of his leading role in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan has returned as Bucky Barnes AKA the Winter Soldier. Stan is joined by his Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) co-star, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, or as the What If?? universe knows her as, Captain Carter ? the new Captain America. Unfortunately for Chris Evans fans, this alternate universe version of Steve Rogers, or the HYDRA Stomper, is voiced by Josh Keaton.

In addition to these three, the late Chadwick Boseman returned for his final Marvel performance alongside other actors like Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), and Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange Supreme), among many others. Notably, though, some contracted MCU stars did not lend their vocal talents to What If??, and instead Marvel replaced them with new actors.

It wasn?t a surprise that Robert Downey Jr., along with Evans, did not return to voice his historic Avenger character. Neither was Scarlett Johansson?s absence as Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow due to her final solo outing with Cate Shortland?s Black Widow (2021) also debuting this year ? What If?? sees Lake Bell voice the former Red Room assassin.

Spider-Man recently appeared in What If?? in Episode 6, ?What If?Zombies?!?, revealing that Hudson Thames has replaced Holland as Spidey. The episode drew inspiration from the Marvel Zombies comic book storyline pitting the alternate versions of these characters against zombie hordes.

Earlier this year, executive producer Brad Winderbaum weighed in on Holland and What If??, alluding to the actor?s contractual agreements with Sony causing a potential issue over his voicing of the animated hero. Now, Thames himself has finally spoken out about taking on the legendary role.

Speaking to The Direct, Thames explained his secretive procedure to becoming part of the MCU:

?It was honestly a pretty standard procedure in terms of arriving at the role. I got called for this audition, and I wasn?t told anything about it. It wasn?t for Spider-Man. It was for something that doesn?t exist. It?s funny, they walked me through at Disney, all the underground secret tunnels or whatever.

I was a super, super, super on the low situation. I went and read a bunch of dialogue. Got a call a week later and said we are going to [do] this thing. I signed a bunch of papers saying I wasn?t going to talk about it. And then we did the dang thing.?

Thames goes on to explain the huge difference between recording lines and seeing his work for the television series with all the production:

?It?s actually funny. With the voiceover situation, you don?t really get the impact of what it is until you see the finished product. And maybe that?s just me. So I voiced the role to a lot of temp illustrations, and it wasn?t really finished.

I did definitely feel like there was a ton of heart in it. I felt the dialogue was written really incredibly. And I already was really excited about it. But, I didn?t really get the full impact until I got a ton of messages at midnight when it came out saying ?Dude you gotta watch this!??

The new Spider-Man actor even commented on the historic moment of mentioning Uncle for the first time in the MCU:

?It was really special. It was really cool to talk about Uncle Ben for the first time which I knew was a really big thing for people. And yeah, it was really cool. Really special.?

Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and Drax the Destroyer, joined Peter Parker/Spider-Man as characters that were re-casted with new voice actors. The characters who are played by Brie Larson, Dave Bautista, and Tom Holland, respectively, all still have upcoming projects within Kevin Feige?s Marvel Cinematic Universe so their lack of appearance here is more than unusual.

Director Bryan Andrews has alluded to the fact that scheduling might have disrupted the casting ? Larson?s The Marvels (2022) and Holland?s Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) ? are higher up the release schedule, after all. Bautista, however, claims he was never asked to be part of What If??

What If?? continues on Disney+. With a second season already announced, it seems fans just can?t get enough of this new alternate reality animated series, a series that really could be a LOT more vital to the MCU than we first thought.

The Jacksonville Jaguars hilariously called out the Atlanta Falcons for blatantly copying a graphic shared over social media.

In an attempt to apologize to their fanbase, the Atlanta Falcons Twitter account made a classic Internet faux pas: they straight-up copied someone else?s idea.

Following another brutal loss, the Falcons are starting their season 0-2 ? an ominous omen for a team that has been plagued by mediocrity and blown leads.

The Falcons blew it again when they apologized on Twitter Monday, blatantly copying a similar post by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jacksonville Jaguars troll Atlanta Falcons over plagiarized Twitter apology

This isn?t the first time the Falcons have been caught in a Twitter controversy: they?ve been known to exchange virtual blows with their divisional rival, the Carolina Panthers.

When the Falcons debuted redesigned uniforms last season, the Panthers trolled them by comparing the threads to the ones worn by Adam Sandler in his 2005 film, ?The Longest Yard.?

The Falcons fired back with a hashtag written in fluent Cam Newton, stoking the flame after the drama surrounding Newton?s then-recent Carolina departure.

Once again, the Falcons are getting roasted on Twitter for copying someone?s style: first Adam Sandler?s look, now the Jaguars.

Like last year, NFL fans from all fandoms chimed in with hilarious takes on the Falcons mishap, noting that neither bottom-of-the-barrel team should be focusing on a Twitter feud.

Twitter seemed to jump in on clowning the Falcons, reminding the world that they?ve never beat Tom Brady and their best bet is a fictional wide receiver from the CW?s football-themed teen drama ?All American.?

The tragically-comical franchise is primed for another potential loss versus the New York Giants in Week 3.
