Opinion: Why Americans are so obsessed with 'Squid Game'

My first introduction to "Squid Game" -- the fictional Korean drama that is now No.1 on Netflix worldwide -- was through a brief clip on TikTok. The game "Red Light, Green Light" was being played, and I watched as one player was shot dead for moving after a "red light" was announced. The other players in the room then began to scream and run -- only to be slaughtered in a frenzy of bullets.

Why Americans are so obsessed with 'Squid Game'

Part of the enduring popularity of Netflix's "Squid Game" lies in its ability to be a surprising mirror of our present reality of struggle and inequality the US, writes Airielle Lowe. Americans may not be fighting to the death in a series of children's games, but they are fighting familiar battles: for better health care, better wages and better living conditions across the nation, she argues.

Netflix Dramas, 30% Tax Credit Lift Lithuania’s Growing Biz

When U.K.-based Camelot Films’ “Prizefighter: The Life of Jem Belcher” was forced to relocate to Lithuania earlier this year, after the film’s Welsh financing fell through, executive producer Kestutis Drazdauskas knew the first challenge facing director Daniel Graham’s period drama would be re-creating 19th century England in 21st century Vilnius. “It was an extensive set […]

The Summit Of The Gods Trailer: Acclaimed Manga Becomes A Gorgeous Animated Film

Animation has long been a medium that somehow never quite received its due from Western audiences and artists. There's a unique freedom of creativity, form, and style that animation affords in a way that live-action simply isn't equipped to -- and that applies to adult-minded storytelling just as much as it does to children's cartoons. So leave it to this fusion of a critically acclaimed Japanese manga adaptation and a French animator-turned-director to remind us of what 2D animation truly has t...

You Season 4 Will Be 'Quite Different,' According To Star Penn Badgley

After three years starring in the Netflix "romantic" thriller "You," Penn Badgley has become very comfortable with his character. Or at the very least, comfortable with his crazy. When we first met series lead Joe Goldberg (Badgley), he was a bookish nice guy, a hopeless romantic ... and a budding psychopath. Three seasons later, he is no stranger to the detailed process of murdering those who get in his way, disposing of their bodies, and skirting past lawful repercussions. Everything Joe does ...

JFK Revisited Trailer: Oliver Stone Goes Through The Looking Glass For More Conspiracy Theories

I'm sure all Oliver Stone fans have their own specific favorite movie from the director's filmography. Maybe it's "Platoon," or "Wall Street." Maybe it's "Natural Born Killers," or "The Doors." Hell, maybe someone out there is a huge fan of "Snowden." But my favorite Stone film – and the film I consider to be his masterpiece, too – is "JFK." Stone's obsessive, paranoid thriller blends styles, alternating between black and white and color and using brilliant editing techniques. It's an exhausting...

Netflix's co-CEO Ted Sarandos revealed to Variety on October 19 that he regrets his last comments about the fallout behind Dave Chapelle's latest comedy special, "The Closer," which has been criticized for being transphobic.

Red Notice Trailer: The Rock, Gal Gadot, And Ryan Reynolds Walk Into A Netflix Movie

Way back in 2018, in a land where time made sense, writer-director Rawson Marshall Thurber ("Central Intelligence," "Skyscraper") announced another collaboration with Dwayne Johnson. The promise of fight scenes, chase sequences, and explosions galore was enough to spark a bidding war between studios that eventually led to "Red Notice" becoming the most costly film in Netflix history. Fast forward a couple years and you arrive at now — after production halts and pandemic delays, we finally get to...

Here's Why Daredevil, Ghost Rider, And Blade Weren't Brought Into The MCU Movies

There was a time in the early 2010s when Marvel fans rejoiced at some boring ole business news. In a short period of time, the character rights for Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Blade, Luke Cage, and The Punisher all came back to Marvel Studios after previously being licensed by a myriad of other studios around Hollywood. However, some fans would end up being disappointed, because none of those characters ever ended up in the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though some of them would find a hom...

Netflix Is Changing Its Viewership Metrics (And It's Somehow Even Worse Than Before)

Netflix has always been shady about the way it reports viewership numbers, and unfortunately, it looks like that trend will continue. The streamer announced yesterday that it will soon be changing the way it reports those kinds of metrics, moving from its current system -- in which a "view" is counted as long as a subscriber watches two minutes of a piece of content -- to a system that is even less helpful for outsiders trying to get an accurate sense of a given project's popularity.Here is what...
