Why ‘The Suicide Squad’ is not a sequel, according to James Gunn and Joel Kinnaman

When writer-director James Gunn agreed to make “The Suicide Squad,” he did so with the understanding that he wasn’t expected to follow closely, or at all, in the footsteps of the 2016 film debut of the DC Comics team of supervillains. “Frankly, the weirdness of doing a sequel that’s not a sequel was part of the appeal of it,” Gunn says on a recent video call. “Just because it’s so different. “I think “Alien” and “Aliens” is a good example,” he says of the first two films in the sci-fi franchise....

In reality, few entrepreneurs have the acting skills required to convince someone that they’re patient, dedicated or hard-working. Johan Brenner, general partner at Creandum, was an early backer of Klarna, Spotify and several other European startups. Over the last two decades, he’s identified five key traits shar...

Which Nubank will own the financial revolution?

Nubank’s first office, on California Street in the Brooklin neighborhood of São Paulo, makes for a great beginning to the company’s story.

Urban Quiet: A Redone Loft in a Former Biscuit Company Bakery

There’s nothing hard-edged or cold about this LA loft, housed in what was once the West Coast bakery of the National Biscuit Company (now known as Nabisco). The space belongs to designer Amanda Gunawan, who was born in Indonesia, raised in Singapore, and is a founding principal of OWIU Studio in LA. In other hands, the redone loft could easily have felt sterile, with its soaring proportions, brick walls, and exposed vents and pipes.
