The Paramount Consent Decrees Are Officially Over, and Theaters Might Never Be the Same

After more than 70 years, the Paramount Consent Decrees are officially coming to an end, and the world of movie releases will never be the same. It’s a bit strange to consider the future of movie theaters right now since so many theaters remain closed due to the coronavirus, and their reopening remains in doubt. But if and when the virus is over and done with, theaters will be facing a strange new world. Per THR and multiple sources, today “a New York federal judge granted a motion by the U....

‘The Old Guard’ Post-Production Team Was Comprised of 85% Women

Gina Prince-Bythewood‘s new action movie The Old Guard is among the year’s most-watched Netflix original films, and the director made her movie in a way that no other action film of this scale ever has: the film’s post-production team was made up of 85% women. That type of gender ratio, according to Prince-Bythewood, “very rarely happens on any movie, but on an action film, I guarantee you that’s never happened before.” Gina Prince-Bythewood, who has previously directed films like Love & Bask...

‘Knight Rider’ Movie Speeds Back Into Development With James Wan

Knight Rider is one of those properties Hollywood can’t seem to ever fully shake. The notion of a crime fighter using an artificially intelligent, technologically advanced car is evidently just too enticing to let comfortably settle into the ether of ’80s nostalgia, and for the past decade, studios have been trying to make a Knight Rider movie. But after several false starts, a new version is now in the works. Aquaman and Saw director James Wan‘s Atomic Monster production company has teamed up ...

Damien Chazelle-Directed Apple Ad Shows that Vertical Video Can Be “Vertical Cinema”

Movies shot on the smartphone are becoming all the rage in Hollywood, as auteurs test the limits of what that little piece of handheld technology can do. Sean Baker and Steven Soderbergh proved that iPhone movies could play on the big screen, but what about the format that has become so commonly associated with that handheld device: the vertical video? The format that makes us all want to scream “Turn the camera, Susan,” the vertical video is the bane of many a movie lover’s existence. The fact...

Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Tyler Mitchell to talk Imagine Impact at Disrupt 2020

The world is changing quickly. It seems to be growing more complicated by the minute. Throughout the centuries, humans have used storytelling to make sense of the world around them. That is perhaps more true today than it ever was, as we have access to more stories (via the internet) than we ever have in history. But with this proliferation, it’s critical that the very best storytellers — a diverse group of storytellers — have access to the broadest audiences. Imagine Impact, a content accelerat...

‘Stuntwomen’ Trailer: Michelle Rodriguez Narrates Documentary About Female Stunt Performers

Stunt performers’ contributions to movies are often highlighted in memorable moments from those films, but the nature of the position means that their faces and names fade into the background in service of the story. Rarely does a stunt performer ever become a household name – especially if they’re a woman. But now Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious) is here to narrate a new documentary called Stuntwomen, which takes these powerhouse performers out of the shadows and (finally) puts them into th...

‘Pineapple Express 2’ Didn’t Get Made Due to a Budget Disagreement with Sony

Pineapple Express was one of Seth Rogen‘s biggest hits, raking in over $101 million worldwide on a budget of just $27 million. So you would think that Sony Pictures would have been chomping at the bit to get a sequel off the ground. Well, at one point the studio was very interested in making Pineapple Express 2, but in one of those reminders that the movie business is more about the business and less about the movie, Sony balked at the budget proposed by producer Judd Apatow.
