  1. Sony Pictures reports a $719 million yearly loss. Ouch. Sony’s Pictures Division Reports Loss Of $719M; Company’s Overall Net Profit Takes 50% Hit I don't expect things to get better for them, tbf.
  2. The golden era of giant monsters peaked in the 1960's. Even the films in the 1980's and 1990's weren't major grossers. Kaiju films have had difficulty making big money for quite some time. The only exception to this is Shin Godzilla, which is arguably the highest grossing film in the genre. But I think that had a lot to do with its satirical flair, A-list cast, and for having Hideaki Anno on board.
  3. > Free screenings. > "Sell Out." That's not how it works.
  4. Yeah, as the years go by, more things are going to be computerized. Legal documents can be written by an A.I., so dialogue is not far from that category.
  5. Honestly, I would go to see many of these films if they bothered to do new things. Remakes are often films that I rent, and not go out to see in theaters. So if they actually adapted the original stories faithfully, I'd be more interested in seeing them. But in this case, The Lion King isn't an adaptation of a classic fairy tale, but resembles Kimba, the White Lion. So I'm not sure I'd care either way. Still haven't seen Jungle Book even though I've heard great things about it. If it's different from the numerous other films based on the original story, I'd be interested, but people haven't been able to give a clear answer to that. Edit: "Rip off" is misleading. Maybe "resembles" is a more appropriate term.
  6. Aladdin and Mulan are the only ones I care about. I saw The Lion King once in theaters as a kid and one more time as a rental. That's probably why I'm not as invested in this as I am with the first two. I'm more familiar with the direct-to-video sequel.
  7. If you don't like the first season, you likely won't enjoy the others.
  8. Embargo lifts on May 6th @ 8:45 PM, PST. Run time is 122 minutes. Look at that confidence!
  9. Knowing how long previous strikes have lasted, I expect the strike to last months.
  10. I'm just worried about muh Godziller. It's been pushed back once already. I don't want to wait until 2020 to see Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Rodan, and Mothra on the big screen. But I don't even know if the script for Godzilla: King of the Monsters is even finished. Dougherty has been tight-lipped.
  11. Mulan will be aimed at kids. Deadpool 2 would bring in a completely different audience since it's most likely going to retain the R rating.
  12. I have friends shitting over worrying about this. Both on the writing and production side of things. Nothing good will come from this if Hollywood doesn't cough up.
  13. Let's hope they actually get on it this time. Anything like what happened in 2007 and 2008 would be bad, especially in today's economic climate.
  14. Ironically, I don't watch television. Being green in the business, I forget sometimes that the television market is just as important as film.
  15. Hopefully Hollywood remembers how damaging things were last time the WGA went through a long strike. A lot of movies I care about are supposed to go into production this Summer. Just pay your people and stay on schedule...
