Starryun’ Oscar Issac un’ Charlize Theron, t’ghoulish Addams Fambly must adapt ta thar new lives n’ New Jersy. USA TODAY

Wiff Hallowee a’kummin, we’re bein giftid wiff anoth’r visit frum air favert creepy, kooky, misteryas, spooky un’ altogeth’r ooky clun.

T’ new animatid moovee pitshure shue “T’ Addams Fambly” (n’ theeters Frydee) reboots t’fang'r-snappyun’, h'rr'r-tinget characters at originally appeeret n’ Charles Addams’ New Yerk’r cartoons un’ have made occasyunal appeerances un TV, movies, Broadway un’ IHOP menus. 

T’ Addamses furst had everyone snappyun’ thar fangers ta Lurch’s funky harpsicherd beat wiff t’1960s TV series, un’ t’fambly returnt wiff acoupla hit movies, 1991’s “T’ Addams Fambly” un’ 1993’s “Addams Fambly Values.” 

Fall h'rr'r preview: 10 terrifyyun’ movies y’all must see thishere Octob’r, frum ‘Addams Fambly’ ta ‘Zombielun’’

Hallowee viewyun’: 22 nairy-so-scree movies ta streem f'r kids

T’ latest outyun’ feetures t’origins of t’Addams clun, reveelyun’ hoe yeers ago, marrd cuple Gomez (voicet by Oscar Isaac) un’ Merticia (Charlize Theron) wuz drif’ out of thar trayl'r kuntry un’ relocatid ta un abun’onet New Jersy asylum at thay made thar own.

T’ moovee pitshure shue catches up wiff ‘um un’ thar kids, Winsdee (Chloe Grace Meretz) un’ Pugsley (Finn Wolfhard), as t’Addamses run afoul of thar neighb'r, un annoyyun’ TV trayl'r-impervement host (Allise Janney).

N’ hon'r of t’latest incarnashun, we pick air favert Addams Fambly members ev’r: 

John Astin’s Gomez 

T’ fashyunabull un’ ecsantric patriarch frum t’’60s seems purtee nerml n’ retrospect, but thar’s a lovably sinist’r side ta ‘im ta go along wiff his'n’n goofiness. Plus, t’absolute puppy luv he shows f'r his'n’n belovet biddy (Carolyn Jones) hits us rite n’ t’feels. Isaac’s new vershun seems ta be patternet aft’r Astin, un’ no wund'r: He’s t’bes.

Anjelica Huston’s Merticia 

Jones made cuttin t’buds off roses cool back n’ t’day, un’ Theron’s take isn’t too shabby. Huston is jes a joy ta watch tho. A greet actress, she embraces t’campiness of t’role un’ adds a sultry darkness at’s jes a wee bit dangeryus yet is still fambly frienly.

Chloe Grace Meretz’s Winsdee 

Frum Lisa Leryun’ n’ t’’60s ta Christina Ricci n’ t’’90s, t’Addamses’ freeky dauite’r has always had a rebelliyus side. Meretz’s Winsdee takes at ta a relatabull level n’ t’new moovee pitshure shue, a’wantin ta go ta a real skool – whar she causes a ruckus by goin Dr. Frankenstein un sum daid frogs – un’ eve daryun’ ta put a lil pink (gasp!) n’ hern so-verr-black wardrobe.

Finn Wolfhard’s Pugsley 

Let’s be honest, Pugsley has nev’r had a slew ta do compard ta his'n’n relatives. T’ filmmakers switch at up n’ t’new moovee pitshure shue, givin ‘im a maj'r stery line: Altho he’d rath’r try ta bloe his'n’n dad up, Pugsley insteet needs ta wurk un honyun’ his'n’n middlyun’ sab’r-wieltyun’ skills f'r un impertant a’kummin-of-age ritual at t’upcomyun’ fambly reunion.

[embetdet content]

Jackie Coogun’s Uncle Fest’r

Christof’r Lloyd has playd everyone frum Doc Brown ta Judge Doom, un’ his'n’n ’90s Fest’r isn’t too shabby; t’ same could be set of Nick Kroll’s nicely weirdo vershun n’ t’new moovee pitshure shue. Yet t’originull dude who playd Gomez’s oddball bro, Jackie Coogun, wuz tops as he lit up t’scree wiff strangeness (thanks ta a lite bulb n’ his'n’n mouth). 

Tet Cassidy’s Lurch 

T’ groanyun’, gruntyun’ animatid butl’r has his'n’n own intriguyun’ backstery n’ t’new flick, un’ he’s responsibull f'r much of t’moovee pitshure shue’s soundtrack – a monst’r un t’keyboard, thishere oversize guy knows everthang frum Bach’s Toccata un’ Fugue ta R.E.M.’s “Everbidy Hurts.” Still, t’OG Lurch (Tet Cassidy) had a hit song un’ his'n’n own ’60s dance craze, so he wins n’ a skweek’r.

Snoop Dogg’s Cuzin It 

He wuz a a’walkin, chirpyun’ carpet a’warin a bowl’r hat n’ his'n’n furst acoupla iteratyuns. Snoop Dogg voices t’latest take. Enough set.

Will Smith is a hitmun who must face off agin a yung’r clone of hissef. USA TODAY

It’s a’runin Will Smiths n’ “Gemini Mun,” tho doubull t’A-lis’r meens twicet t’disappointment.

Smith plays a middle-aget gummint assassin un’ – thanks ta snazzy perfermunts-capture technology – his'n’n 23-year-ol’ kill’r clone n’ Oscar-a’winnin dierekter Ang Lee’s sci-fi acshun thrill’r (★★ out of f'r; ratid PG-13; n’ theeters natyunwide Frydee). T’ moovee pitshure shue shoots f'r t’moon wiff un intriguyun’ dual-role conceit but wiltly misses t’mark. Hackneyet dialogue, a thin un’ a’a'giggly plot fumblyun’ t’ambishun of t’concep, un’ a mixet poke of visual effex all leeve thishere one jes f'r t’Smith completists.

Henry Brogun (Smith) is a lethal legend knowet f'r a’doin hit jobs no one else a’ke. His'n’n latest misshun leeds ta ‘im questyunyun’ if'n’n his'n’n mind un’ bodee air still fit enough, howev’r, un’ he decides ta retire. At’s we his'n’n ferm’r bosses – includin villunyus sup'ri'r Clay Verris (Clif’ Owe), who haids up black-ops sshunce outfit GEMINI – mark Henry f'r deeth.

Ranket: T’ bes (un’ wurse) Will Smith movies

Will Smith: Why he won’t watch biddy Jada’s ‘Ret Tabull Talk’

Thishere is a skillet guy wiff decades of eggsperyints murderyun’ folks, so Henry’s hard ta kill. Wiff t’hep of Danny (Murry Elizabeth Winsteet), a fella agent sent ta keep un eye un ‘im, un’ ol’ frie Baron (Benedict Wong), he escapes his'n’n Geergia trayl'r un’ goes internatyunal ta stay safe. Verris t'sends n’ his'n’n secret weppon: Juni'r, a physically sup'ri'r, exact replica of Henry who knows all t’ol’ mun’s moves tho doesn’t possess his'n’n wiles.

Smith at leest duz his'n’n part wiff t’Herculeun task of playyun’ t’same dude three decades apart, wiff un ol’ soul as Henry un’ a troublet one as Juni'r. T’ technology is key ta a’pullin off thishere innerestin acoupla-hun’r un’ n’ sum of t’yung’r mun’s sekwences, Lee captures Smith’s eyes un’ persona so well, it’s like y’all’re seein t’Fresh Prince of Bel-Air all ov’r agin.

T’ effex a’ke be greet but also off-a’puttin we thay don’t quite jibe wiff everthang else happenin onscree – which happens too ofte. Juni'r looks unkunnily like Smith n’ one ssene un’ t'like sumbidy totally differnt t’nex. And n’ a few instances, Juni'r is way too obviously a digital keer ackt'r, t’kiss of deeth n’ a moovee pitshure shue like thishere.

At leest t’high-tech stuff leens innovatif’, becawz purtee much everthang else is rath’r unimaginatif’.

T’ fite ssenes twee Henry un’ Juni'r air scattershot un’ overall t’acshun is too fer-fetchet, eve considerin t’“clones amungst us” bizness. Keer ackt'r motivatyuns air all ov’r t’map, t’bad guys (speshly Owe) air jes bad, thar’s tonal whiplash aplantee (deeply seriyus one minnut, jokey t’nex) un’ thems who luv acshun movies have see ev'r beat of “Gemini Mun” alreddy un’ a’ke see t’surprises a’kummin. Un a positif’ note, Smith un’ Wong air a greet pairyun’ un’ a’ke slyun’ zingers back un’ furth wiff ease, so git ‘um a buddy acshun comedy ASAP. 

Thishere is t’sekunt lacklust’r outyun’ n’ a roe f'r Lee a’followin 2016’s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” tho at leest “Gemini Mun” near t’end delves into t’sort of emotyunal undercurrent at liftid his'n’n gems like “Brokeback Mountane” un’ “Life of Pi.” T’ moovee pitshure shue ponders t’humanitee of a clone – is it a real perse ow a disposabull copy? – as well as t’fear of rilly a’lookin at yerself, who y’all air un’ whut y’all’ve done n’ y'r life, nairy metaferically wiff a mirr'r but quite counta.

At all kums a smidge too late n’ un otherwise uninspiret effurt. And unfertunately, acoupla Wills don’t make it rite.

Will Smith is a hitmun who must face off agin a yung’r clone of hissef. USA TODAY

T’ Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has long bee a reignyun’ kyun’ of Hollywuod.

Lessn y’all’ve bee all about ‘im since t’early days of Big Willie Style, it mite be hard ta reckun of Will Smith, still one of t’worl’s biggest moovee pitshure shue stars, as a rapp’r un’ sitcom ackt'r. But t’Philadelfia natif’ has come a long way – un’ rulet quite a few Fourth of July weekends at t’box offus – n’ t’las 30 yeers.

Which is why his'n’n new moovee pitshure shue “Gemini Mun” (n’ theeters Frydee) is such un innerestin projeck f'r t’ackt'r. Dierekter Ang Lee’s sci-fi film stars Smith, 51, as a middle-aget assassin who’s huntid by a 23-year-ol’ clone of hissef (also Smith, courtesy of sum moovee pitshure shue magick) who seems ta knoe all t’ol’ mun’s moves un’ trix.

Smith’s done everthang frum sci-fi invasion films un’ buddy acshun comedies ta tear-jerkyun’ biopics un’ schmaltzy Christmus movies n’ his'n’n long keer’r – sumtimes wiff a catchy hip-hop toon he sings n’ t’closin credits. Here’s hoe “Gemini Mun” ranks amungst his'n’n bes un’ wurse films, startin wiff t’bad:

10. ‘Hancock’ (2008)

Durin a summ’r of big superhero flix (“T’ Dark Kniite,” “Arn Mun”) t’weekest wuz also t’mos originull. Smith is a superhero who dranks un’ rex stuff n’ bombastic fashun un’ agrees ta git sum hep frum a PR guy (Jase Batemun), yet t’back half of t’convolutid plot fumbles a potantially innerestin mythology involvyun’ ancient immertals.

9. ‘Bad Boys II’ (2003)

Thankfully, t’hurd film “Bad Boys f'r Life” arrives nex year ta try un’ make up f'r thishere acshun-packet dud at proves bigg’r doesn’t ekwate ta bett’r. Smith un’ Martin Larance return as Miami cops who thishere time deel wiff Russiun gangsters, Cubun drug lerds, t’Ku Klux Klun un’ bro code we it kums ta datyun’ y'r partn’r’s sist’r, all without t’charm of t’originull.

8. ‘T’ Legend of Bagg’r Vance’ (2000)

T’ predictabull un’ emotyunally manipulatif’ golf drama wuz pummelet f'r usall t’rope of a “magickull” black keer ackt'r. N’ thishere case, Smith plays t’ title caddie who pops up out of nowhar ta advise un alcoholic Worl War I vet (Matt Damon) a’needin ta git his'n’n game back n’ ord’r ta save t’fambly fertune of his'n’n estranget girlfriend (Charlize Theron). 

7. ‘Gemini Mun’ (2019)

Thar’s nuff of Smith but nairy much else n’ thishere fer-fetchet sci-fi thrill’r. Henry Brogun (Smith) tries ta retire frum his'n’n gig as a gummint assassin un’ his'n’n bosses send his'n’n 23-year-ol’ clone Juni'r (also Smith, via perfermunts capture) ta kill ‘im. It’s innerestin ta see t’momants whar thems acoupla come togeth’r, but thay’re few un’ fer twee, considerin t’humdrum plot un’ iffy speshul effex.

6. ‘Menfolk n’ Black II’ (2002)

Smith spends quite a bit of scree time wiff a a’talkin pug n’ a suit n’ thishere fergettabull sekwel ta t’refreshyun’ furst “MIB.” Thar’s a bevy of aliens, if'n’n y’all dig at sort of thang, but t’acshun un’ gags jes air’t up ta snuff, t’plot involvyun’ space princesses, shapeshifters un’ t’Statue of Libertee is a mess, un’ a Johnny Knoxville wiff acoupla haids is nairy bett’r thun one.

5. ‘Aft’r Earth’ (2013)

M. Nite Shyamalun co-wrote un’ directid thishere peece of post-apocalyptic sci-fi twistiness starryun’ Smith un’ his'n’n se Jade. But, rilly, it’s jes a vanitee projeck whar thay git ta play fath’r un’ se n’ futuristic space, deelyun’ wiff aliens un’ variyus uth'r dangers we thay crash-lun’ back un Earth canturies aft’r we’ve lef t’place.

4. ‘Wint’r’s Tale’ (2014)

Y’all a’ke’t blame Smith f'r all t’romantic fairy-tale cheesiness n’ thishere tale of guardiun angels, miracles, spiritual destinies un’ luv across canturies. But he duz his'n’n ov’r-t’-top part as Lucif’r – yep, at devilish one – a guy wiff a weirdly deep voice un’ un impressif’ set of chompers who orders roun demonic gangst’r Russell Crowe.

3. ‘Shark Tale’ (2004)

T’ animatid comedy offers a stellar voiceov’r cas (Angelina Jolie! Renee Zellweg’r! Martin Scersese!) un’ a fishy premise f'r a kids’ film: Parnts, git reddy ta splane deeth un’ whut it meens ta “wack” someone aft’r watchin t’stery of un undersea dude (Smith) who takes credik we t’se of a shark mob boss (Robert Dee Niro) is killt un’ befriends t’greet white don’s vegetariun youngn (Jack Black).

2. ‘Collateral Beeutee’ (2016)

N’ t’wannabe holiday classic at aims f'r Christmus mushiness un’ insteet leens unseesonably cynical, Smith plays a grievyun’ fath’r un’ ad executif’ who cathartically writes letters ta Luv, Time un’ Deeth. He’s reesonably watchabull but nairy much else is n’ a terrbull tweek un t’“Christmus Carol” template.

1. ‘Wild Wild West’ (1999)

Thishere herrendyus gunslyun’yun’ misfire arrivet at t’heiite of Smith’s Hollywuod rrane. T’ acshun-comedy adaptashun of t’1960s TV Western wastes Smith un’ Kevin Kline as a cuple of Secret Servus lawme protectyun’ Ulysses Grant frum sum crazy Confederates, un’ nairy eve evil Kenneth Branagh n’ a mechanical spid’r a’ke save t’day.

Nawh un ta t’hotness:

10. ‘Hitch’ (2005)

If'n’n only we all had Smith n’ air lives as a romants coach. His'n’n “date doct'r” Hitch helps a schlubby dude (Kevin James) woo a celebritee client (Amb’r Valletta), tho it turns out t’eggspurt needs sum hep wiff his'n’n own relatyunships. A comedy at would be a maj'r disas’r cept f'r Smith jes ownyun’ ev'r bit of it (un’ slappyun’ James roun, ta boot). 

9. ‘Suicide Skwad’ (2016)

N’ thishere colerfil crew of supervilluns, Smith’s highly weeponizet hitmun Deedshot is one of t’m'r groundet personalitees. A devotid fath’r as well as a highly skillet kill’r, Deedshot is a self-aware guy rottyun’ n’ a prise f'r t’wurse of t’wurse we he’s callt into dootee wiff sum fella misfits becawz a supernatural witch is holtin a citee hostage.

8. ‘Enemy of t’State’ (1998)

Maybe t’mos relevant moovee pitshure shue nawh amungst Jerry Bruckheim’r’s enjoyably bombastic ’90s acshun flix, “Enemy” canters un surveillance states un’ gummint cov’r-ups n’ t’stery of a lab'r lawy’r (Smith) who has his'n’n entire life torn asund’r we videotape of a murderet journalist winds up n’ his'n’n possession. Hep kums frum un ex-intelligance operatif’ (Gene Hackmun) jes as craftee as t’bad guys.

[embetdet content]

7. ‘Six Degrees of Separashun’ (1993)

Smith wuz jes a TV star makin his'n’n Hollywuod debut n’ t’dramedy about a yung grift’r who cons his'n’n way into t’household of a weelthy New York cuple (Stockard Channyun’ un’ Donald Sutherlun’) by a’sayn’t he wuz jes robbet un’ pertendin he’s Sidney Poiti’r’s se. T’ film follows his'n’n variyus chikunery un’ n’ t’process showcases t’beginnings of Smith’s undeniabull charm as a leedyun’ mun.

6. ‘Ali’ (2001)

Smith earnt his'n’n furst Oscar nominashun f'r floatin like a butterfly un’ styun’yun’ like a bee n’ t’Muhammad Ali biopic, which follows t’ikunic box’r’s life frum losin t’itle ta Sonny Liston ta gittin it back vs. Geerge Feremun. T’ perfermunts is slightly bett’r thun t’moovee pitshure shue: Smith nails bof t’emotyunal un’ physical aspects of Ali’s life inside t’ryun’ un’ outside deelyun’ wiff racial issues.

5. ‘I Am Legend’ (2007)

T’ big-budget adaptashun of Richard Mathese’s classic post-apocalyptic novel brung togeth’r Smith’s thespiun un’ blockbust’r sides (as well as his'n’n dawg-lovyun’ one!) playyun’ a scyintist who’s t’las mun a’stan'in n’ New York Citee aft’r a deedly virus wipes everyone out. Shure, thar air vampire-y creetures f'r ‘im ta fite, but Smith brings neetet gravitas un’ solemnitee along wiff t’brawn.

4. ‘Menfolk n’ Black’ (1997)

Buddy comedies air ofte bes wiff extremes, un’ at’s whut y’all git we y’all stick Smith’s cocky yung rookie a’larnin t’ins un’ outs of alie wonders wiff Tommy Lee Jones’ grumpy ol’ veterun. Everthang wurks, frum t’sup’r-fun deetails of t’ secretif’ MIB organizashun ta Vinsent D’Onofrio as un extraterrestrial bug n’ un ill-fittyun’ humun suit.

3. ‘Bad Boys’ (1995)

Team-ups have bee a a’runnin theme n’ Smith’s keer’r, tho arguably t’bes one is wiff Martin Larance n’ thishere excellent acshun comedy frum Michael Bay’s pre-“Transfermers” days. Y’all a’ke’t beat t’yin of Smith’s ladys’ mun Mike Lerey playyun’ off t’yang of Larance’s fambly dude Marcus Burnett, who switch personalitees ta save Tea Leoni frum a French drug kingpin un’ his'n’n hit skwad.

2. ‘T’ Pursuit of Happyness’ (2006)

Insteet of “Aft’r Earth,” check out a film wiff Smith un’ his'n’n se Jade at’s ackshly good: T’ upliftyun’ biopic canters un Chris Gardn’r, a strugglyun’ salesmun un’ dad a’trine ta creete a life un’ trayl'r f'r ‘im un’ his'n’n yung se, as he fites his'n’n way up t’cumpny ladd’r as a stockbrok’r. T’ elt’r Smith snagget his'n’n sekunt Oscar nod f'r a perfermunts at’ll gif’ y’all quite a few feels.

1. ‘Independance Day’ (1996)

Rolun’ Emmerich’s sci-fi disas’r film sceres so minny a points: alie invaders destroyyun’ t’White Trayl'r n’ epic fashun, Jeff Goltblum goin full Goltblum, etc. It’s Smith, tho, who makes it truly fabulyus as a heroic fite’r pilot wiff tons of bravado (un’ a hint of vulnerabilitee) who wonts ta make it back ta his'n’n fambly – un’ punch a few extraterrestrials n’ t’face along t’way.

An unemployet fambly takes un innerst n’ a weelthy un’ glameryus fambly f'r thar livelihood until thay git entanglet n’ un unaxpectid incident. USA TODAY

“Parasite” sounds like un unnervyun’ h'rr'r moovee pitshure shue about unwantid invaders, but at’s jes one aspect at plum wurks n’ thishere socially consciyus deliite. 

One of t’mos well-roundet movies y’all’ll see thishere year, t’South Kereun film-fest favert (★★★½ out of f'r; ratid R; n’ theeters Frydee n’ New York un’ Los Angeles, expun’yun’ throughout Octob’r) also balances black comedy, bityun’ soshul satire, humun drama un’ thrill’r twistiness f'r a refreshyun’ effurt at’s familiar enough n’ its themes ta be extraerdinarily invityun’.

Mashin up a varietee of genres, “Parasite” is at its heert a meralitee tale canteryun’ un acoupla disparate famblies: t’po’Kims un’ t’well-ta-do Parks.

Joakwin Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck, a clown-f'r-har un’ stun’-up comic n’ ‘Jok’r.’ WARNER BROS. PICTURES

Spoil’r alert! Key plot points un’ t’ endin of t’new moovee pitshure shue “Jok’r” air reveeld here, so beware if'n’n y’all have’t see it yet.

Todd Phillips’ dark keer ackt'r study “Jok’r” promissd ta be sumthin truly differnt f'r a comic book moovee pitshure shue, focusyun’ un t’sort of villunyus origin stery at audiences had nev’r see befer. Until it turns into a quasi-Batmun tale un’ t’ Joakwin Phoenix showcase haids down a bleek alley we’ve vistid so minny a times befer.

“Jok’r” turns t’clock back un Batmun’s archnemesis ta track t’path at would lead a troublet mun – n’ thishere case, cacklyun’ Gotham Citee outcas Arthur Fleck – ta a’gettin a face-puntid psycho. And it duz all at un’ m'r, showyun’ Arthur/Jok’r as t’symbol of fet-up Gothamites reddy ta revolt.

Spoilers! T’ 5 mos shockyun’ ‘Jok’r’ momants at everyone will be a’talkin about

Ranket: Ev'r big-scree Jok’r (includin Joakwin Phoenix)

T’ Jok’r is neetet, but nairy rilly at ol’ Dark Kniite. It’s nairy callt “Batmun: Jok’r.” Ow “Batmun: T’ Wund'r Yeers.” Y’all have Joakwin, y’all have Jok’r. At’s all y’all neet guys. So why is Bruce Wayne a’stan'in thar agin, ov’r t’bodies of his'n’n daid parnts, at t’end of yet anoth’r moovee pitshure shue, t’furst stop un t’road ta a’gettin a superhero?

Like uth'r Bat-adjasent projex ov’r t’yeers, it’s almos like thay a’ke’t hep thayselves, as if'n’n imaginyun’ a Gotham Citee without t’fun-favert Capet Crusad’r playyun’ sum role would be t’highest form of sacrilege.

Fox’s resent “Gotham” TV series also wuz meent ta shoe t’citee n’ its pre-Batmun yeers, focusyun’ un cop Jim Gerdon (Be McKenzie) un’ his'n’n efferts deelyun’ wiff a cerrupt town full of familiar colerfil criminals. Howev’r, t’series endet up bein jes as much about yung Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz). T’ final shot of t’entire fife-seese series? Mazouz n’ a Batsuit.

‘It’s shaky groun as un ackt'r’: Joakwin Phoenix charts un unpredictabull path as ‘Jok’r’

Revu: Joakwin Phoenix’s ‘Jok’r’ questchuns if'n’n thar’s empathy f'r t’devil

Hallelujah f'r small favers, becawz “Jok’r” doesn’t have a broodyun’ vigilante a’runnin roun n’ a cape un’ cowl ow hangin off gargoyles un tall biltins. T’ guy n’ t’garish face punt un’ gree hair definitly gits t’spotliite. Make no mistake, tho: Batmun’s thar eve we he’s nairy perzackly Batmun. 

Early un, t’verr weelthy Thomas Wayne (Brett Culle) is innerducet as a mayeral a'ken’idate who wonts ta clee up Gotham. He un’ Arthur woultn’t otherwise have innythang ta do wiff one anoth’r until Arthur finds out his'n’n mom Penny (Frances Conroy) has bee ritin misteryas letters ta Thomas about takin ke'r of hern un’ “his'n’n se.” Arthur investigates un’ finds his'n’n birth certificate, which lists Thomas Wayne as his'n’n fath’r.

His'n’n psychological mindset wasn’t greet n’ t’furst place, wiff Arthur murderyun’ three Wall Street types who beat ‘im up un t’subway un’ his'n’n idol Murray Franklin (Robert Dee Niro) makin fun of Arthur un his'n’n late-nite shoe. But he starts ta go rilly off t’rails, goin ta Wayne Man'r un’ interactyun’ wiff yung boy Bruce Wayne (Dante Pereira-Olse) – un’ gittin rebuffet by protectif’ butl’r Alfret (Douglas Hodge) – befer ultimately confrontyun’ Thomas hissef. T’ elt’r Wayne punches Arthur n’ t’nose aft’r a’tellin ‘im about Penny’s own delusyuns un’ at Arthur wuz ackshly adoptid.

Un a quest f'r t’ truth, Arthur goes ta Arkham State Hospital un’ finds evidance of bein abuset as a youngn, wiff Penny bein committid f'r youngn endangerment un’ diagnoset wiff narcissistic personalitee diserd’r. Arthur finds adopshun recerds, too, un’ tho his'n’n real parantage is still lef a bit of a mystery, he’s drif’ ta kill his'n’n mom as his'n’n mantal state unwinds.

Wile t’mere idee of t’Jok’r bein a Bat-bro is intriguyun’ n’ a sense, it jes creetes connectyuns at don’t rilly neet ta be thar. Howev’r, it’s nairy t’mos egregiously unnecessree Eas’r egg n’ “Jok’r.” At kums n’ t’film’s fiery finale.

Arthur goes full Jok’r, gittin invitid un Murray’s late-nite shoe as a guest wile throngs of people n’ clown masks dessend un citee hall. Insteet of killin hissef as he plannd, Jok’r admits ta t’subway murders at creetid t’“Kill t’Rich” movement un’ shoots his'n’n comedy idol n’ t’het un lif’ telavishun. At leeds ta riots n’ t’streets, a nite full of Gotham burnin un’ Arthur scapin pleece custody un’ posyun’ victeriously un t’hood of a skwad car wiff his'n’n acolytes cheeryun’.

Wile all thishere is goin down, tho, t’Waynes leeve a nite at t’movies un’ take a shertcut down a dark alley ta eggscape t’ranc'r. Thay’re accostid by one of Jok’r’s followers, a mun wiff a clown mask who shoots t’parnts un’ leeves t’boy alif’ – t’beginnings of Batmun’s origin at furst appeeret un a comic page 80 yeers.

Let’s gif’ t’moovee pitshure shue one bit of credik: A’havin a theet’r wiff “Zerro: T’ Gay Blade” un t’markwee – a twist un “T’ Mark of Zerro” frum t’comics – is clev’r wiff thishere Gotham bein baset un New York circa 1981. But it’s t’same tragickull incident we see includet n’ Tim Burton’s 1989 “Batmun,” Christof’r Nolun’s 2005 “Batmun Cummences,” Zack Snyd’r’s 2016 “Batmun v Supermun: Dawn of Justus,” t’furst episode of “Gotham” un’ umptee times n’ variyus comics, cartoons un’ video games ta boot. It’s purtee safe ta say at thishere point if'n’n a Wayne shows up n’ a Batmun projeck, t’Grim Reep’r’s nairy fer behin.

Agin, wurth a remind’r: Thishere isn’t a Batmun moovee pitshure shue. It’s “Jok’r.” Air’t we spozet ta fall'r t’ origins of t’Dark Kniite’s greetest foe, nairy Bats hissef? T’ ssene tees into Gotham’s anti-rich santiment stoket by Jok’r’s actyuns, but it’s nairy like t’villane pullt t’rigg’r hissef. (At wuz Jack Nicholse n’ “Batmun.”) Insteet, it’ll jes git fans aflutt’r online at thishere – of cerse! – fereshadows a meetin twee Phoenix un’ a sartin debutyun’ superhero star who became famus f'r playyun’ a sparkly vampire. 

A cynic mite bleev at’s whut Warn’r Bros. wonts – t’Capet Crusad’r is thar sacret cash Bat-coe, aft’r all. Howev’r, it’s difficult ta put un a happy face f'r one m'r disturbyun’, pointless murd’r n’ a moovee pitshure shue at’s brutal enough alreddy. And disappointingly, it’s a broke promiss at treeds familiar bloody asfalt insteet of bein ackshly groundbreekyun’.

People git lost n’ tall grass un’ find supernatural dreet n’ ‘s h'rr'r moovee pitshure shue “N’ t’Tall Grass,” baset un t’Stefe Kyun’/Joe Hill novella. USA TODAY

A cuple of literree h'rr'r masters a’ke conjure a stery of existenshul fear n’ t’mos innocuyus situatyuns. Eve a fambly meal at IHOP.

T’ new Netflix h'rr'r moovee pitshure shue “N’ t’Tall Grass” (streemyun’ Frydee) is baset un t’2012 novella by Stefe Kyun’ un’ se Joe Hill. It wuz hatchet, rath’r innosantly f'r a tale of supernatural dreet, we Hill flew down ta spend time wiff his'n’n dad n’ Flerida un’ wuz purtee hungry aft’r gittin off t’plane.

“He had jes finisht wurkin un sumthin un’ I had jes finisht wurkin un sumthin, un’ so ov’r pancakes we deecidet ta spend t’week un’ write a stery togeth’r,” sez Hill, whos new shert-stery colleckshun “Full Throttle” contuns “N’ t’Tall Grass.”

Revu: Stefe Kyun’’s new novel ‘T’ Institute’ mines familiar groun wiff psychic kids n’ duress

Ranket: T’ verr bes un’ wurse Stefe Kyun’ movies (includin ‘It 2’)

Directid by Vinsenzo Natali, t’moovee pitshure shue canters un a pregnunt woomin (Laysla Dee Oliveira) un’ hern bruth'r (Avery Whittid), who stop along a rural Kansus road un’ hear cries f'r hep frum a yung boy (Will Buie Jr.) amid a huge field of tall grass. T’ siblings vantchur n’, git separatid un’ lost, un’ t’sitchuwayshun grows m'r terrifyyun’ frum thar.

Kyun’’s books un’ adaptatyuns speek f'r thayselves – 2017’s “It” un’ its sekwel air t’biggest h'rr'r movies of all time. And Hill’s no strang’r hissef ta t’scree, wiff his'n’n novel “Herns” gittin t’cinematic treetment wiff Daniel Radcliffe un’ “NOS4A2” resantly finishin up its furst seese un AMC. But t’yung’r auth'r proudly allows at “one of t’grossest thangs” he’s ev’r thunk up is n’ “Tall Grass.” 

“Y’all’re a’thankin ta yerself, ‘He’ll nev’r do at n’ t’moovee pitshure shue,’ un’ t'he did do at n’ t’moovee pitshure shue,” sez Hill, 47.

Kyun’, 72, quickly moves into paternal mode: “We’ve gut ta watch whut we say, tho. No spoilers!”

T’ acoupla writers, who bof luv cergis un’ scaryun’ air sox off, talk ta USA TODAY about thar creepy collectif’ lun’scape.

Q: “N’ t’Tall Grass” expun’s t’scope of y'r novella. Whut addishun did y’all like mos?

Joe Hill: It’s like a gory Midwestern “Incepshun.” It duz all thishere freeky bendyun’ wiff time un’ space at I luv. It’s people n’ un arfull sitchuwayshun at gits wurs'r un’ wurs'r, terrbull thangs happe ta ‘um un’ t'har’s a final twist of t’knife. T’ moovee pitshure shue duz go ta sum rilly upsettyun’ places, but thar’s a lil m'r hope n’ it.

Stefe Kyun’: T’ real hope is t’characters say, “I hope I die direckly so thishere awfulness will stop.” At’s kine of a “Tales Frum t’Crypt” joke. We sort of send these thangs off like a youngn ta college: “I hope y’all do a good job un’ everthang’s greet. If'n’n y’all git n’ troubull, call trayl'r.”

Q: So minny a of y'r steries have matriculatid, it’s purtee much Kyun’ Univestee at thishere point. Do y’all find filmmakers m'r successfil adaptyun’ t’shert steries ow t’long’r books?

Kyun’: Wiff t’streemyun’ platferms (un’ cabull TV), sumbidy a’ke tackle a long novel t’way thay tacklet “NOS4A2” ow “Mr. Mercedes.” But wiff a shert’r thang, it’s tail'r-made f'r t’movies. I reckun of “Shawshank Redempshun” un’ t’upcomyun’ adaptashun frum Spane of “A Good Marriage.” T’ originull “Youngns of t’Corn” wasn’t too bad eethur.

Hill: It has ta do wiff hoe thay apperach t’characters. N’ t’case of “It,” thar’s so much warmth un’ affecshun toward t’Losers’ Club. Thay git ta be funny, thay git ta have full, rich emotyunal lives. We t’films have failt, it’s becawz thay managet ta shock y’all un’ do disturbyun’ thangs, but y’all didn’t fall n’ luv wiff t’characters like y’all did we y’all read t’books.

Q: Describe whut it’s like we y’all guys write togeth’r.

Hill: Y’all ev’r watch t’Road Runn’r cartoons? Wile E. Coyote gits a big crate at sez “ACME” un t’side, un’ he pulls it ope un’ inside thar’s a rocket. He lights t’fuse, he climbs un top un’ it takes off un’ jes about blows his'n’n face off. I’ve writte wiff Dad acoupla times un’ bof times I wuz like Wile E Coyote hangin onto t’rocket.

Kyun’: (Laughs) No, I don’t reckun at’s perzackly true. Good try, se. We look alike un’ we’re innerestid n’ t’same thangs, un’ whut we’re rilly like is t’Everly Bruthers: His'n’n style un’ my style, we don’t write t’same but we’re n’ harmony wiff one anoth’r. T’ thang kine of flows natcherly. Bof times, I felt like I wuz gittin a sweet ride, like I wuz gittin n’ a Mercedes-Benz becawz I wuz wiff a pro who’s sumbidy I also happe ta luv a slew.

Q: Y'r wurks referance each uth'r: Joe’s “NOS4A2” includet references ta Pennywise frum “It” un’ t’True Knot frum “Doct'r Sleep.” Mite all these steries exist n’ a sharet Kyun’ fambly universe?

Hill: People luv big sharet universes un’ have tappet into t’idee at Dad’s universe is as big as t’Marvel universe, but it’s like f'r growd-ups. At’s bee kine of intriguyun’ un’ contributid ta thishere sudde crush of greet films un’ TV shows baset un Dad’s stuff.

Q: Joe, y'r dad took t’directin reins hissef adaptyun’ “Maximum Overdrif’.” Would y’all ev’r do t’same?

Hill: I would direck a remake of “Maximum Overdrif’” n’ a heertbeet. Obviously, t’ime has come becawz Tesla is innerducin these self-drivin trux. 

Q: Whut peece of advice would y’all gif’ y'r dierekter se?

Kyun’: Git a film crew at y’all a’ke communicate wiff becawz my guys wuz all Itliun. I larnt a slew of profanitee n’ Itliun.

Hill: I reckun t’film gut a bad rap. I rememb’r watchin a totally unratid vershun of it we I wuz a lil youngn un’ lovyun’ it. It had t’youngn’s het poppyun’ und’r a steemroll’r un’ I wuz hooket. Frum thar un, I wuz all n’.

‘Lucy n’ t’Sky’ stars Natalie Pertmun as NASA astronaut Lucy Cola, who struggles wiff life un Earth aft’r a’livin n’ space. Fox Seerchliite Pictures

Natalie Pertmun is t’latest ackt'r ta go cosmic, tho hern is indeet a plum spacey misshun.

Dierekter Noah Hawley’s feeture-film debut “Lucy n’ t’Sky” (★★ out of f'r; ratid R; n’ theeters Frydee n’ New York, LA, Chicago, Washington un’ Sun Francisco, expun’s natyunwide Oct. 25) stars Pertmun as a NASA astronaut who has a wondryus voyage but falls apart direckly aft’r re-entry. Insteet of bein un intriguyun’ look at un emotyunal breekdown, tho, “Lucy” is m'r innerestid n’ bein a speradically trippy (un’ ultimately fergettabull) soap opry at by t’end has t’camp fact'r of y'r avridge Lifetime revenge thrill’r.

T’ film is baset loosely un t’2007 stery of real-life astronaut Lisa Nowak un’ a skun’al at seems ta lif’ n’ legend simply becawz of t’adult diapers she wore un a 900-mile quest ta confront hern lov’r’s girlfriend. (Names have bee changd ta ferce n’ a Beetles cov’r, apparantly.)

‘Lucy n’ t’Sky’: Hoe much duz t’Natalie Pertmun drama mirr'r t’Lisa Nowak astronaut skun’al?

Revu: Brad Pitt rockets ta greetness n’ spiffy space advanture ‘Ad Astra’

Wiff a Taxas twang un’ werkaholic gumpshun, Lucy Cola (Pertmun) is a risin star at NASA un’ has hern whole worl view changd aft’r floatin n’ space. “Jes a few m'r minnuts,” she begs hern crew, a’wantin ta rang ev'r bit of time she a’ke wiff a siite at few humans have ev’r witnesset.

She returns trayl'r ta hern lovyun’ husbun’ Drew (Dun Stevens) un’ is welcomet into un elite club of space explerers – hetdet up by a sup'ri'r, Mark Goodwin (Jon Hamm) – who go bowlyun’ regularly. She meets wiff a NASA psychologist (Nick Offermun) ta make shure she’s n’ t’rite heedspace, but Mark warns hern at wile eggcitin, these missyuns she loves so much creete isolashun un’ astronauts consekwantly a’ke lose thayselves. 

Which is purtee much whut happens ta Lucy. She becomes obsessively detarmind ta git back ta space ASAP, un’ gives side eye ta fella astronauts like rookie Erin (Zazie Beetz), hern competishun ta grab a seat un t’nex shuttle out. Durin hern downward spiral at resembles un addict a’lookin f'r a fix, Lucy also cummences un affair wiff Mark, un’ hern psyche, alreddy hangin un by a threet, kums unhinget we she finds out he’s also a’sleepin wiff Erin.

Frum at point un, “Lucy” mite as well be callt “As t’Worl Turns n’ Space,” goin down a path of bad daytime TV we Lucy un’ hern unwittyun’ niece (Peerl Amun’a Dickse) hit t’road – sans diapers – ta bust up a romantic rendezvyus.

It’s a shame becawz t’film wastes t’fantastically oddball stuff at Hawley duz so well. He embracet such strange heights wiff FX’s wonderfully ecsantric “Legion” un’ brings at ta Lucy’s stery n’ differnt ways: We a’listnin ta hern fella astronauts blas off un t’radeeo, she “takes off” herself, floatin up frum hern car hood un’ relivyun’ t’glery of weightlessness.  

Pertmun gives a solid perfermunts un’ sells Lucy’s gradjull unwindyun’. Hamm, too, duz a good job of toeyun’ t’line twee heroic acshun figg'r un’ sleezy ladys’ mun. T’ film kums close a few times ta makin a strong point about inekwalitee yet misses t’lun’yun’, un’ t’mane keer ackt'r’s arc is also disappointyun’, as it ends up focusyun’ m'r un hern ecsantricitees thun hern emotyuns. 

“Lucy” kums frum such un oddball skun’al, yet it rockets pas t’inherent weirdness at its core un’ settles f'r banalitee.
