WandaVision 2020 Release Date Confirmed in New Disney+ Fall Preview Trailer

Published

on

Fear not, Marvel fans as WandaVision is still coming this year. The upcoming live-action series is one of the first in a new batch of shows that will tie in more directly to the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Given what is going on in the industry right now there had been doubts as to whether or not it would still arrive on time. While no firm release date has been set a new trailer previewing what’s to come on Disney+ this fall confirms that the series is indeed coming down the pipeline before year’s end.

The video serves as a preview of the entire slate coming to Disney+ this fall. WandaVision is included, which is Disney publicly saying that the show is going to be here on time, if not ahead of time. Originally, the series had been set to arrive in December following the debut of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in August. However, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan’s series got bumped back due to production delays brought on by the shutdown. Since this is a fall preview, it is not a reach to assume WandaVision could be coming in the fall, which would be sooner than expected. But without a firm release date confirmation, all that can be said for sure is that it isn’t being pushed to 2021.

Elizabeth Olsen is set to reprise her role as Wanda Maximoff, with Paul Bettany returning as Vision. Given his death at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, it remains a bit unclear how that is going to work. From what little footage we’ve seen the show will be taking a cue from classic sitcoms, while also adding some trippy spectacle into the equation. It has also been confirmed that William and Thomas, the twin children of Wanda and Vision from the pages of Marvel Comics, will be included. With the 2020 release firmed up, we should expect a full-length trailer sooner rather than later.

Matt Shakman is directing the show with Black Widow screenwriter Jac Schaeffer set as the head writer. The cast includesTeyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), Randall Park (Agent Jimmy Woo) and Kathryn Hahn in a mystery role. This is one of several new live-action shows being developed for the streaming service, which will see Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige heavily involved. They will also carry budgets said to be comparable to a blockbuster movie. Loki, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight are also in various stages of development.

The preview also includes upcoming Disney+ originals such as Black BeautyThe Right Stuff and Clouds, while classics like Big, Bend It Like Beckham and X2- X-Men United are also coming to the streaming service before the end of 2020. Not to mention The Mandalorian season 2, which recently revealed its first trailer and is easily the buzziest title of the bunch. But if WandaVision does indeed beat The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to the punch, that will be right up there in terms of anticipation. You can check out the full preview from the Disney+ Twitter.

Ratched recap: Episode 1, ‘Pilot’

Published

on

By

Sarah Paulson stars as Nurse Mildred Ratched in Ryan Murphy’s latest horror series. Ratched episode 1 introduces her icy, new character. 

Ratched episode 1 begins with an opening sequence worthy of a classic horror film. Rain patters against the windows of a 1947 church housing multiple priests sitting down to dinner. Afterward, several of them attend the cinema to watch Miracle on 34th Street, except one man who stays behind for some “alone time,” if you know what I mean.

Edmund Tolleson (Finn Wittrock) knocks on the door in the dead of night, and the foolish priest grants him entry. When the others arrive home, they find his bloody corpse in the bathtub. Edmund then makes quick work of the remaining priests, killing each one until the only one left behind is Monsignor Sullivan (Robert Curtis Brown).

Before fatally stabbing him to death, Edmund explains that the monsignor was his father, and it was because of him that his mom ended up becoming a prostitute. There appears to be a subtle implication that the monsignor might have raped Edmund’s mother, as well. Ultimately, Edmund kills everyone except one lone survivor, Father Andrews (Hunter Parrish), who found refuge underneath a bed.

The massacre stirs up a media frenzy, and Edmund is dubbed the “Clergy Killer.” He will be incarcerated at the Lucia State Hospital, which happens to be the place Nurse Ratched intends to be employed.

Ratched episode 1 recap: Mildred seeks a job at Lucia State Hospital.

As soon as Mildred arrives in California, she books a motel room under the eccentric and strict owner Louise (Amanda Plummer) and heads to the hospital, demanding an interview with Dr. Richard Hanover (Jon Jon Briones). His righthand Nurse Betsy Bucket (Judy Davis) isn’t thrilled with Mildred’s intensity or refusal to be scared away.

Mildred does get her chance to meet with Hanover and impresses him with her vast experience and passion. But he can’t offer her a job because he has been unable to get more state funding from Governor George Wilburn (Vincent D’Onofrio). The staff is at full capacity.

So, what does Mildred do? She creates an opening. Nurse Ratched is an uncompromising woman who will do whatever it takes to get what she wants. In this case, she blackmails a nurse who she caught having an affair at the hospital. Once the vacancy is open, she immediately fills in for her, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.

Hanover catches the attention of WIlburn’s assistant, Gwendolyn Briggs (Cynthia Nixon). Gwendolyn believes Hanover and Lucia could be an excellent opportunity to get reelected by making him appear like a man who believes in science and helping the mentally ill.

If they provide funding to Hanover for his new “treatment barn,” they think the hospital could become a community wellness project. It also helps that the notorious Clergy Killer will soon be a patient, creating plenty of eye-catching headlines for the facility.

Ratched episode 1 recap: Press day at the hospital.

Press arrive at the hospital alongside the governor to get the lay of the land and take pictures to accompany the articles in the papers. Mildred sees an opportunity to make herself a vital asset to Hanover and the hospital as a whole. She tampers with Father Murphy’s medication resulting in him having a stroke of some kind in the middle of the hospital.

Mildred is the one to come to his rescue, seemingly saving a patient’s life and capturing the governor’s attention. He asks her to be in a photograph alongside him and takes a more profound interest in Mildred, making his obvious attraction known via his wandering hands. Nurse Bucket catches on to Mildred’s tricks and causes Hanover to become suspicious of her.

Next, Mildred makes herself a vital aid to Hanover by coercing a grieving patient into committing suicide. She’s a master manipulator, appealing to him by telling a story of a brother she lost as a child and her lack of connection to her parents. Mildred takes him to Hanover’s office, and he kills himself with the sharp letter opener on the desk.

When Hanover tries to accuse Mildred of tampering with the father’s medicine, he’s distracted by his open office door and the discovery of the corpse in a scene that parallels to the opening moment where another bloody body was found mangled in the bathroom. Hanover starts to panic. How is he supposed to deal with a dead patient, especially while the governor is on the premises?

Mildred promises to take care of everything, assuring Hanover he has no reason to worry — so long as he officially offers her a position on his nursing staff. She escorts the body out of the room just as  Nurse  Bucket arrives and sniffs around suspiciously.

Ratched episode 1 recap: The connection between Mildred and Edmund.

In the final moments of the episode, Edmund arrives in shackles and is taken to the underground wine cellar that has been reinforced and rebuilt into a maximum-security cell. Mildred visits him there, and the two share an emotional moment.

Edmund tells her he doesn’t want to die, and Mildred promises that he won’t. How is she planning to keep that promise? And is Edmund the brother she was talking about? It would explain why she was so desperate to get a job at this specific hospital!

Odds & Ends from Ratched episode 1

  • I’m not sure what to make of Corey Stoll’s character, Charles Wainwright, just yet. He appears in briefly in the scene with Hanover at the bar when trying to get the governor’s attention, and he’s also staying at the same inn as Mildred. The two almost get intimate until Mildred asks him to roleplay as a couple arguing over children.
  • It becomes highly clinical and strange how she describes the situation, and Charles leaves before anything can happen between them. The way she talked about parents and their differences with having kids seemed kind of similar to what Edmund said to the monsignor before murdering him, possibly layering in more clues and hints to their sibling bond.
  • Reviews are not great for Ratched. Personally, one episode isn’t enough for me to draw a conclusion, but I will say the series is absolutely stunning visually. The art direction is phenomenal.

Miley Cyrus Reportedly Dropping A New Song About Liam Hemsworth Being Bad In Bed!

Published

Is it drag your ex season or what???

In her press tour for new single Midnight Sky, Miley Cyrus has been totally open about her divorce and using heartbreak as her muse. Her other muse, of course, is ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, who has clearly provided the pop star with a LOT of material.

Now that we know the scathing breakup anthem Slide Away was actually written before Miley and Liam broke up, we can say Midnight Sky was actually Miley’s first single of the post-Liam era. On that track, she sang about “being tied up in [his] ropes” and how she doesn’t “belong to anyone.”

Unsurprisingly, that’s not The Last Song we’ll hear about the decade-long relationship. Ha! According to a source for The Sun, the former Disney star has plenty more where that came from — and some of these lyrics are VERY shady!

Here are the alleged lyrics from one song, titled Win Some, Lose Some:

“Last night was the nail in the coffin, Lord knows we were already dead / Look back and the memory’s haunted, can’t believe we did it again, yeah / Can’t count all the times that I faked it, thank God for the thoughts in my head.”
“You know me the best, but you hurt me the worst, my darling. I can’t pretend anymore.”

OUCH.

All the times she faked it?? She’s totally saying he was bad in bed!

The Hunger Games star had apparently already formed a “low opinion” of his ex wife in the year since their split… we can’t imagine her calling out his skills in the bedroom will make matters any better in that regard.

According to some other leaked lyrics, though, the 27-year-old is NOT sorry for how things went down, and presumably not sorry for making sweet music about it, either. On a track called WTF Do I Know, she allegedly sings:

“Maybe getting married just to cause a distraction.”
“You wanted an apology? Not from me. / I had to leave you in your own misery. / So tell me, baby, am I wrong that I moved on? / And I don’t even miss you.”
“Thought that it’d be you until I die, but I let go.”

Both of these songs are supposedly in contention for Cyrus’ upcoming 7th album, She Is Miley Cyrus. The tracklist hasn’t yet been finalized though, so it’s possible these songs won’t make the cut, per The Sun.

It’s a bit funny that Miley spoke out about being “villainized” by the press and then proceeded to drag Liam’s name through the musical mud as much as possible. At the same time, we’ve got to hand it to the Aussie actor… he’s inspired some incredible hits, from Wrecking Ball to Malibu and now seemingly Miley’s entire next album! He may be one of the most prolific muses ever… if maybe not the most prodigious…
