So far, the movies that have come out of lockdown—either those inspired by the pandemic or filmed under its restrictive conditions (or both)—have been, shall we say, uneven.
Released in 2014, it’s about vision scientists searching for the origin of the human eye—look, a pun—which, if you didn’t know, is “the window,” as one character literally says, “to the soul.” They find it in the genes of a sightless worm, but not before Karen, played by Brit Marling, warns her lab partner that she, at least, has no interest in getting famous, in being seen: “Recognition makes me nauseous,” she says.
Late last year, during the Fox broadcast of a matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Football Team, fans were treated to shots of end zone celebrations that felt ethereal, almost dreamlike.
“We came up with the technique by analyzing the sound spectrum of old-fashioned movies,” Klyce says, “and of course Citizen Kane was one that we modeled, and we kind of realized that that film sounded the way it did because of the limitations of the technology.”.

While The Assistant received great reviews nearly across the board, the film didn’t get much of a theatrical release (and made just $1 million).While Annihilation was fairly well received by critics, it was pretty polarizing among audiences, and it’s almost easy to see why.
Hollywood had already learned, thanks to Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel, that movies fronted by women could make money (duh), and in 2019 some 43 percent of the top-grossing films featured a female lead or co-lead, according to a report from the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative.

This, again, seems like it might not be a Nolan film, but it actually bears his hallmarks: thickly plotted yet easy to follow, deep until you think too much about it.
On April 14, 1906, the Miles brothers left their studio on San Francisco’s Market Street, boarded a cable car, and began filming what would become an iconic short movie.
The studio previously planned for an August 12 release date, but that seemed increasingly likely to expose American moviegoers to the coronavirus—hence Rogen's quip about Nolan and his fans.

Credit for the movie’s surprises—it’s inclusivity, it’s thoughtfulness, it’s diversity—goes in large part to two people: Greg Rucka, who wrote the original comic The Old Guard, and to Gina Prince-Bythewood, who directed the Netflix adaptation.
