Jason Blum Is As Upset As You No One Saw Upgrade, Offers Update On TV Adaptation

"Upgrade" is getting an upgrade. When the bonkers-in-Yonkers sci-fi action film, written and directed by Leigh Whannell, released in 2018, it received a pithy welcome at the box office, though critics like /Film's Matt Donato had a good time with it. Whannell moved onto his bombshell hit "The Invisible Man" in 2020, and now that the dust has settled on the (pardon the pun) universal fanfare and praise surrounding the resurrected Universal Monsters franchise-launcher, the writer-director has sign...

I think it’s great for audiences, a solid strategy for organizations that can handle it operationally and financially, and for the arts field to increase participation. I’ve been thinking a lot about the strategy of the Long Tail as I watch arts organizations and artists deliberate t...

9 Short Stories by Algerian Women, in Translation

This series is supposed to highlight 9 short stories available online — as it did, last week, for Sudanese and South Sudanese women writers. However, it was difficult to find more than a handful of short stories by Algerian women writers, in English translation, online: There are already only a few short stories by Algerian women translated to English. Most of these were originally written in French; Maïssa Bey’s collection Do You Hear the Mountains and Other Stories was translated b...

Publishers, curation and algorithms

Publishers take two risks to bring new ideas to the world. (And I’m talking about any middleperson–a gallerist, a TV network, a movie studio, a label–they’re all publishers). One risk is the time and money spent attracting and supporting the creator/artist. And the other risk is curatorial. They are risking the trust and attention of the audience by choosing THIS instead of THAT. If they develop a reputation for having good taste (in however the audience defines that) they earn more att...

For example, I’ll still be doing everything I can to help beginning speakers find the value of their voices. As I was refreshing my lectures and reading through new research, something jumped out at ...

Conventional vaccine testing is a slow, years-long process.
