The Next Streaming Wars Are Coming

Coming to those who are interested in Spanish-language media, to be a little more precise. Disney, Netflix, and Warner Media, and Univision all have a piece of the pie – and are tugging, hard. “It’s easy to see why streamers and studios see a gold mine. Latinos consistently accounted for a disproportionate amount of moviegoing before the pandemic, yet they are severely underrepresented onscreen and behind the camera, including at Netflix” – Los Angeles Times

Warner Bros. and Legendary Nearing Deal Over ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Release

Late last year, Warner Bros. made history by announcing their upcoming 2021 theatrical slate would also be going straight to HBO Max on the same day said films were intended to hit theaters. It was a bold, game-changing move – and it was met with immediate resistance. Because as it turns out, the folks at Warners had neglected to inform the filmmakers and actors involved with their upcoming movies of the decision. Legendary Pictures, which has an agreement to co-produce and co-finance films wit...

The Head Of WarnerMedia Is Suddenly An Industry-Wide Supervillain

Jason Kilar made what he thought was a pretty decent decision, given the coronavirus – to launch Warner Bros’ entire 2021 slate both in movie theatres (well, the ones that are open) and HBO Max. Filmmakers, agents, actors, movie theatre chains, and many others are bemused or furious. To put it mildly, many in and out of Warner Media “chafe at what they see is a lack of respect for Hollywood tradition.” – The New York Times

"For over a century, film was at its core a theatrical art form: While it’s true that movies could be watched on TV, the primary cinematic experience was immersive viewing in a theater surrounded by strangers."

"Now there is a push to make the movie theater merely one platform among others, offering an experience deemed no more meaningful than watching the same feature-length visual narratives on a home entertainment system, a laptop, or even a cell phone."  Writes Jeet Heer in "Movie Theaters Aren’t Dying—They’re Being Murdered/The Covid-19 pandemic is providing a perfect cover for media giants bent on replacing theatrical moviegoing with streaming at home" (The Nation).
