CES Daily: New adventures in the new normal

Today is the final day of CES 2021. First billed as a virtual conference that would replicate, to the best of its ability, the camaraderie and awe that define its annual in-person Las Vegas event, many attendees have been left divided as to whether this year’s show hit the spot or missed the mark. In reality, CES was more akin to a series of back-to-back Zoom calls—one that cost exhibitors hefty sums that aren’t too far off from the price of showcasing themselves at the real event. You may be yo...

Aubrey Plaza Joins the Cast of New Guy Ritchie Movie Starring Jason Statham

I, for one, think Aubrey Plaza should be in every movie, all the time. So I can’t complain about the news that she’s joining the cast of the new, currently untitled, Guy Ritchie movie. The action flick will see Ritchie reunite with Jason Statham, with Statham playing an MI6 agent trying to stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology. There’s no word on what character Plaza is playing, but here’s hoping Ritchie is smart enough to give her a big, substantial part and not just sideline her in...

‘The Gentlemen’: Guy Ritchie is Turning His Gangster Movie into a TV Series for Miramax TV

Remember when Guy Ritchie made his long-awaited return to the gangster flick with The Gentlemen earlier this year? Yes, that was this year, back in January 2020. And in the decade that passed in the 9 months since The Gentlemen came out, it has earned enough of a following for Miramax TV to commission a TV series adaptation, written and directed by Ritchie himself. It curiously brings the project full circle, as The Gentlemen started off as a TV series pitch before it became a feature. Deadl...

Studio Ghibli Puts Online 400 Images from Eight Classic Films, and Lets You Download Them for Free

Japan’s Studio Ghibli has long been protective of their intellectual property, with Hayao Miyazaki and his team overseeing how their characters are merchandized, as well as carefully making sure foreign distribution of their films stay faithful to the original. (Miyazaki famously--although apocryphally--sent Miramax’s Harvey Weinstein a katana sword along with a note reading “No Cuts,” because the mogul and all-around bad person was notorious for recutting Asian films for western audiences).

The estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle filed a lawsuit against "Enola Holmes" for having emotions

And that's where the problem lies. The character and adventures of Sherlock Holmes is mostly in the public domain, as of 2010. There are, however, 10 Holmes stories that are still technically owned by the es...

‘Mimic’ TV Series Directed by Paul WS Anderson in the Works

At long last, the worlds of Guillermo del Toro and Paul WS Anderson will collide! Mimic, del Toro’s American debut film, is now being turned into a TV series, with Anderson directing the pilot. As for del Toro, he has absolutely nothing to do with the TV show, which makes sense, since the experience of making the film was a constant battle, leading the filmmaker to disown the theatrical cut (a director’s cut was eventually released on Blu-ray). In the film, mutated insects prey upon hapless hum...
