What Are The Top Challenges Facing Digital News Publications In 2020?

The decline of the printed press is nothing new. I mean, hello, it’s 2020. Are you going to buy a newspaper from your local newsagent or are you going to pick up your phone and scroll through Facebook/find out what’s trending on Twitter?

Steven Spielberg No Longer Directing ‘Indiana Jones 5’; James Mangold Might Take Over Instead

‘The Magicians’ Raises More Questions Than Answers With “Garden Variety Homicide,” But That’s Okay

The Dark King’s gotta go. That’s what the gang in Fillory decide at the beginning of “Garden Variety Homicide,” this week’s latest installment of The Magicians.

Anthony Mackie Thinks the Only Place to Work With “Filmmakers You Adore” is on Streaming

Anthony Mackie may be the star of one of the biggest franchises in the world, but he’s probably on your computer screen (or if you’re really fancy, your television via a streaming device) more often than he’s on the silver screen.
