Escenas eliminadas de ‘A ciegas’ dan pistas sobre cómo son las criaturas de la película

Al final se decidió eliminar a los monstruos porque eliminaban tensión a la película por su aspecto más cómico que aterrador.

Escenas eliminadas de ‘A ciegas’ dan pistas sobre cómo son las criaturas de la película

El último éxito de Netflix, «A ciegas» (Bird Box por su título original) tiene algún que otro secreto. ¿El más importante? El aspecto de los monstruos protagonistas de la película, que en realidad no se ven en ningún momento. Esta es parte de la magia de la producción de Netflix, ya que el hecho de no saber exactamente lo que acecha a los protagonistas aporta más misterio a la película, igual que sucedía en Alien antes de que el espectador viese totalmente la criatura al final de la película.No obstante, parece que originalmente, la aparición de las criaturas estaba planificada, al menos en lo que a ejecución de guión se refiere, ya que tal como han confirmado sus protagonistas, inicialmente se rodó una escena en la que efectivamente salian los monstruos, pero al final decidieron descartarla para dar mayor aura de misterio a las criaturas de la película.

«Hubo un momento en que uno de los productores decía: «No. Hay que ver algo en algún momento’ y me obligó a escribir esencialmente una secuencia de pesadilla en la que Malorie experimenta uno de esos momentos» – Eric Heisserer, escritor de «A ciegas». Sandra Bullock también describe el momento, aunque es poco específica, y muchos apuntan a que se trataba de la versión en previa al CGI durante el rodaje:

«Era un hombre verde con una cara de bebé horrible. Era solo un bebé largo y gordo» – Sandra Bullock.

Parece que el aspecto de las criaturas no convenció al resto del equipo de producción. De hecho, según parece el equipo de rodaje convenció a la producción de que la secuencia que revelaba el aspecto de los monstruos era más cómico que otra cosa, de forma que decidieron eliminarla del montaje final, para alegría de todos. «A ciegas» ya está disponible en Netflix, y cuenta entre su elenco a actores y actrices de la talla de Sandra Bullock, Tom Hollander y John Malkovic.

Instagram Scrolling Goes Sideways Instead Of Down Now And People Are Losing It

0

Actualización 27 de diciembre, 17:25: Instagram ha revertido los cambios pocos minutos después de que un gran número de usuarios vieran su aplicación actualizada repentinamente con el nuevo formato de navegación. Adam Mosseri, responsable de la plataforma, ha confirmado a través de su cuenta de Twitter que «se suponía que era una prueba muy pequeña, pero la extendimos más de lo que habíamos anticipado».

Instagram ha introducido este jueves uno de los cambios más notables en la aplicación que hemos vistos durante los últimos meses. Los usuarios que acceden a ella se están encontrando, en muchos casos, con que la plataforma cuenta ahora con un nuevo modo de navegación que destierra el modelo utilizado hasta el momento para visualizar las publicaciones de las personas a quienes siguen, adoptando estas un formato horizontal. Hasta ahora, el desplazamiento por los posts se realizaba haciendo un scrollvertical, deslizando de abajo hacia arriba para ir descendiendo entre las publicaciones del feed principal. En un sorpresivo movimiento, esta acción se lleva a cabo a partir de ahora deslizando de derecha a izquierda o pulsando en sendos extremos de la pantalla –y viceversa, para volver a los anteriores–, de manera similar a lo que ocurre con las Stories.

Nuevo formato, ¿nuevos problemas?

Este nuevo formato ofrece una visión más amplia de los posts a tamaño completo –se pueden ocultar las Stories con un pequeño desliz hacia arriba– y hace más accesibles los comentarios, los cuales se despliegan también de forma gestual. Sin embargo, no queda libre tampoco de revelar nuevas problemáticas de uso que no se encontraban anteriormente, como el impedimento de acceder a los mensajes directos o a la pantalla para subir una nueva historia haciendo para ello uso de gestos hacia la izquierda y derecha, respectivamente, desde la pantalla principal. El nuevo formato hace también más lenta la navegación entre publicaciones, mostrando solo una al mismo tiempo, y eleva las posibilidades de dar Me gusta a una fotografía por error si se está pasando de una a otra mediante la pulsación en lugar de deslizando. No son pocos, en consecuencia, los que han manifestado ya su descontento con los nuevos cambios y reclamado la vuelta del formato original en Instagram.

Miley Cyrus Marries Liam Hemsworth In Vivienne Westwood

0

Three Instagram pictures were all it took for Miley Cyrus to put a stop to the rumours surrounding her marriage to Liam Hemsworth. The couple, who have dated on and off for 10 years, were indeed wed at an intimate ceremony at Cyrus’s Tennessee property on the evening of December 23. The photographs that subsequently emerged on social media show the newlyweds embracing in front of a festively decorated fireplace.

In the third portrait, the singer tagged Vivienne Westwood, the creator of her off-the-shoulder silk gown. Hemsworth, who captioned his corresponding Instagram post “My love”, wore a black suit and trainers for the celebration.

Reports of a wedding began circulating earlier this week, when the couple’s friend Conrad Jack Carr posted Instagram stories of Cyrus, clad in her Westwood dress, and Hemsworth, stood amongst Mr and Mrs balloons. Cyrus’s mother, Tish, and her sisters, Noah and Brandi, as well as Liam’s brothers, Chris and Luke, were also present as the duo cut a cake.

After meeting on the set of 2010 teen romance The Last Song, Hemsworth proposed to Cyrus in 2012. The couple called off their relationship a year later, but began seriously dating again around 2016.

Lady Gaga’s 2-Part Residency Could Be Game-Changer for Las Vegas Residency Model

0

No other city does New Year’s Eve like Las Vegas. Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Gwen Stefani are among the superstars who will be ushering in the new year with performances at venues on the Las Vegas Strip, while more than 300,000 people are expected to gather on the world-famous corridor Monday (Dec. 31) to watch eight minutes of fireworks.

At another celebration in the downtown Fremont Street entertainment district, 12 bands will play under a massive video canopy that will show the ball drop in New York’s Time Square. “The only thing that can top Las Vegas is Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve,” said Jacqueline Peterson of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “The city continues to evolve itself. We never run out of things to do.”

Gaga’s New Year’s Eve concert at Park Theater at Park MGM casino-resort will be the third of her long-anticipated residency, which will debut Friday (Dec. 28). Veteran Las Vegas performer Celine Dion will be at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and Maroon 5 will celebrate the holiday once again at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Stefani will take the stage at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood casino-resort as part of the residency she kicked off this year. Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers and J. Cole are among those performing at nightclubs. While Las Vegas is known as a place for last-minute trips, tourists who want to ring in 2019 here should act fast. Tourism officials expect 318,000 people to travel to Sin City for the holiday and nearly all the city’s more than 147,000 hotel rooms to be booked.

“Now is the time to do it,” Chris Baldizan, senior vice president of entertainment booking and development at MGM Resorts International, said about booking a trip for the holiday. But “we’ll always find a spot for somebody.” New Year’s Eve is worth an estimated $403 million to Las Vegas, according to the convention and visitors authority, which is responsible for promoting the destination.

In addition to concerts with tickets on sale for the general public, casino operators also host over-the-top private parties for their VIP guests.

Caesars Entertainment hosted nine of those last year, which included DJs, dancers, fireworks shows, thousands of bottles of champagne and performances by Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and other stars. Five hangover brunches were served the next morning.  Unlike the two previous years, New Year’s Eve falls on a weekday. Casino operators say the Monday celebration is a positive because it gives people a reason to stay beyond a typical weekend trip. “It just means that more of our guests are coming in even earlier to spend more days celebrating in this great tradition,” said Chris Holdren, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Caesars Entertainment. “So, they may come in, spend the weekend and extend it to encompass the great holiday.”

Millie Bobby Brown Wants to Star in the “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” Sequel and The Cast Is So Into It

0

 

Following the Netflix video of the conversation between Noah Centineo and Lana Condor, which officially confirmed the return of the two heroes of the rom-com To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before to our screens, Millie Bobby Brown has made it abundantly clear that she’d love to appear in the sequel.

After seeing the two heroes, the Stranger Things actress posted a handful of videos on her Instagram account in which she pretends to weep with joy, according to Nylon:

«I want to thank Netflix, I want to thank Noah Centineo and Lana Condor. I wanna cry. If I could be an extra, please hit me up Netflix. You know, I do work for you already so I think there’s not gonna be an issue there.»

Millie Bobby Brown will soon make an appearance in Godzilla, before returning for a new season of Stranger Things. Anna Cathcart, who plays the heroine’s little sister in the film, reposted her story and tagged Netflix, hammering the message home. In terms of the cast, the trailer for the second film hints that a significant role is reserved for John Ambrose McClaren, who made a brief appearance at the end of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Although the character was played by Jordan Burtchett, the moment in the trailer when the actress makes a second phone call suggests that the character has been recast. Screenwriter Sofia Alvarez is reported to have been hired to adapt the second tome of Always and Forever, Lara Jean,written by American novelist Jenny Han. The sequel to the first book focuses on the way in which Lara Jean manages her feelings for Peter Kavinsky when another boy enters her life.

Lil Wayne calls JAY-Z a “real friend” for helping him pay off back taxes

0

TMZ broke the news: prodigy rapper Travis Scott whose last album Astroworld was nominated twice for the Grammy Awards will perform during the Super Bowl’s halftime. The event is said to be the biggest stage in the world, gathering more than 100 million viewers worldwide every year. He will join the band Maroon 5 for a show that is expected to be exceptional.

But one may wonder if he is to accept this honor. Ever since the announcement of his participation was made, several artists spoke up, including Jay Z, to try and convince him to decline because of the Colin Kaepernick case. In 2016, the American quarterback had kneeled during the Star Spangled Banner preseason in order to protest the police brutality against the Afro-American community. Following this, Donald Trump suggested that the NFL should fire the players protesting during the national anthem and Colin Kaepernick had been discarded by the league. Out of solidarity with the athlete, Jay Z called on Travis Scott to boycott the event, so did Meek Mill who tweeted: «He don’t need that he on fire already! Stay strong in this shit!» Travis Scott is yet to give his response.Wayne is likely referring to the $7.72 million in back taxes the rapper owed years ago. He paid it back in 2012, and as we now know it was apparently with the help of the Jigga Man.

Wayne also took a moment in Chicago to shout out producer Swizz Beats. “There’s people like Swizz Beatz that’s gonna send me every beat he make and want me to rap on every single one until I got my situation straight,” Wayne said.

Wayne’s doing solid these days. He finally released the long-awaited Tha Carter V after it languished in the wilderness for seven years. He also recently teamed up with Nicki Minaj for a new remix of “Good Form”, contributed to Future and Juice WRLD’s joint album, and popped up on the soundtrack for Creed II. His Tha Carter V track “Mona Lisa” featuring Kendrick Lamar was named one of our favorite songs of the year.

Jared Leto halts Thirty Seconds To Mars gig to criticise ‘aggressive’ security’s handling of fans

0

“You do not need to take that guy down. You guys are being too aggressive tonight,” he said, pointing out one fan in particular who was being manhandled by ‘seven guys’. “Do not abuse this guy, okay? Relax, settle down, don’t escalate the situation. That’s fine but there’s seven guys like on top of this guy. It’s ridiculous,” he continued. “I know it’s a funny thing. It happens when you get too many security guards in one building, there’s always problems, there’s always problems, guys. Settle down, just take care of each other, just take care of each other.” One fan who posted the footage on Instagram said that guards were “screaming at us and flashing there [sic] lights in our faces.”

Nick Cannon defends Kevin Hart by posting “homophobic” tweets from Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer

0

«I wonder if there was any backlash here.»

Nick Cannon has attempted to defend Kevin Hart by unearthing controversial tweets from high profile figures including Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler. Celebrated comedian Hart stepped down from the Oscars on Friday after a series of seemingly homophobic tweets were unearthed earlier in the week. In one, he said: “If my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay’.” In the wake of the controversy, Hart offered his resignation and said he did not “want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists.”But on Friday evening, Cannon attempted to defend Hart by sharing material from other comedians that he deemed to be similarly contentious. In one tweet from 2011, Chelsea Handler is seen referring to “f*g birds”, while the slur is also used by both Silverman and Schumer in other tweets from over seven years ago. Justifying his actions, Cannon subsequently wrote: “You know I’ve been saying fucked up shit since twitter started! I don’t play that politically correct bullshit! Fuck politics!! Only Truth!”

Although Handler and Schumer are yet to respond, Silverman shared a Twitter thread that offered a justification for their tweets. In it, writer Greg Hogben claimed that the use of the slur was justified because all three have previously proved themselves to be active allys of the LGBT community.

“The thing is, a lot of gay guys didn’t take offence to these comments, because we didn’t feel the violence or malicious intent behind it. Because we knew they were jokes. Because we knew these people were LGBT allies,” he wrote.

But Hogben argues that Hart does not have “a history of helping at risk LGBT youth. To be honest, his tweets and his stand-up gig saying he’d ‘do anything not to have a gay son,’ made me bristle. In short, it *felt malicious.”

Katy Perry Gets Colorful in ‘Final Fantasy Brave Exvius’ Video Game:

0

Popular role-playing game Final Fantasy Brave Exvius’ newest character is going to “Roar.” On Wednesday (Dec. 12), Katy Perry will be joining the playable lineup and debuting a new song upon her entry into the mobile game world. Perry’s new soaring anthem, “Immortal Flame,” can be previewed in a video promoting her new endeavor. The visual shows Perry playing with her phone and dog, eventually putting on an elaborate blue dress and being pixilated into the game.   Although Perry’s appearance in the Final Fantasy series is exciting, she’s not the first pop star to be featured. Ariana Grande — Billboard’s Woman of the Year — previously appeared in the game for a limited time beginning Jan. 2, 2017.

Lady Gaga attends a photocall for the film "A Star is Born" presented out of competition on Aug. 31, 2018 during the 75th Venice Film Festival at Venice Lido.

Perry is no stranger to the gaming world. She was the star of a Sims 3 expansion pack in 2012, and even had her own mobile game, Katy Perry Pop, debut in 2015.

Kevin Hart to host the Oscars

0

El actor estadounidense Kevin Hart anunció este martes en su cuenta de Instagram que será el presentador de la 91 edición de los Óscar, que se celebrará el 24 de febrero de 2019 en el Teatro Dolby de Los Ángeles (EE UU). «Durante años me han preguntado si alguna vez presentaría los Óscar y mi respuesta siempre fue la misma… Dije que sería una oportunidad como comediante única en la vida y que sucedería cuando tuviera que suceder», explicó. «Estoy muy feliz de decir que ese día ha llegado finalmente», agregó. Hart aseguró que es «increíble» poder unirse a la «legendaria lista» de personalidades que se han desempeñado como maestros de ceremonias en la gala más importante del cine. «Agradezco a la Academia de Hollywood por la oportunidad… Ahora toca estar a la altura», cerró. Hart (Filadelfia, 1979) es uno de los cómicos más populares de Estados Unidos en la actualidad y en su filmografía destacan cintas como «Ride Along» (2014), «Central Intelligence» (2016) o «Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle» (2017). Su última cinta, hasta la fecha, es «Night School» (2018), una comedia en la que compartió protagonismo con Tiffany Haddish. Hart recogerá el relevo de Jimmy Kimmel, que tomó las riendas de los Óscar en las dos últimas ediciones, y tratará de mejorar los datos televisivos de esta ceremonia, que en los últimos años ha visto disminuir su público en EE.UU. y que en 2018 registró el peor dato de audiencia de su historia.
