    Sopranos creator David Chase is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his iconic show’s premier and lamenting the death of television’s exquisite Golden Age. In an interview with the Sunday Times, the 78-year-old who changed television, but sadly not forever, said, “Yes, this is the 25th anniversary, so of course it’s a celebration. But perhaps we shouldn’t look at it like that. Maybe we should look at it like a funeral.”

    Angel Studios, the studio behind the surprise hit “Sound of Freedom,” has announced the completion of its latest project, "Homestead,” adapted from the post-apocalyptic book series Black Autumn, written by Jeff Kirkham and Jason Ross. "Homestead” narrates the story of two contrasting families in a collapsing civilization: a well-prepared, affluent family and a military veteran family hired for security. Set against a backdrop of escalating violence, the plot explores themes of divine intervention amid human conflict.
  • This is Why People Refuse to Pay For Stream Services Anymore

    01/05/2024 10:38:59 AM PST · by davikkm · 75 replies
    The idea of paying for cable was that there wouldn’t be ads. Then the ads came, but there was around five minutes of ads for an hour of content. Then it went to ten minutes for a half hour. In 2023, there are now ten minutes of ads for every ten minutes of content. What was a 90 minute movie is now strung out to three hours on a channel.

In recent years, we've seen the bowdlerization of novels by Roald Dahl, woke remakes of Agatha Christie classics, and disclaimers on classic Disney cartoons. Now, the British Film Institute is getting in on the game. The BFI, the institution dedicated to preserving the heritage of British cinema, is screening the James Bond films from the '60s along with some other similar movies, and it has decided to slap trigger warnings on the films on its website.

  • Scoop: Warner Bros. Discovery in talks to merge with Paramount Global

    Axios ^ | Dec 20, 2023 | Sara Fischer
    Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav met with Paramount Global CEO Bob Bakish on Tuesday in New York City to discuss a possible merger, Axios has learned from multiple sources. Why it matters: The combination would create a news and entertainment behemoth that would likely trigger further industry consolidation. Zaslav also has spoken to Shari Redstone, who owns Paramount's parent company, about a deal. WBD's market value was around $29 billion as of Wednesday, while Paramount's was just over $10 billion, so any merger would not be of equals. Details: The meeting between Zaslav and Bakish, which sources say lasted...

    Taylor Swift’s performative activism is getting tiresome — and transparently hypocritical.Now that she is the Democrats’ official cultural vector for promoting their left-wing agenda, the mega pop star has become more than ubiquitous. She is being forcibly crammed down everyone’s throats. Her media saturation level is somewhere near Hurricane Katrina. Even NFL fans who just want to enjoy the game have no choice but to watch Clockwork Orange-style as she cheers on her Kansas City Chiefs boyfriend in cringeworthy style.Left-wing and establishment media can’t help fantasizing about how Swift’s massive pop culture sway could “save Joe Biden” in next year’s...

    Bidenomics is ruining the affordable cost of fun in America. Nearly 60 percent of Americans are cutting back on spending on live entertainment — including amusement parks, rock concerts, and the performing arts — as prices continue to soar through the roof, according to a new survey of 1,000 individuals conducted by the Wall Street Journal and Credit Karma.

    It’s Tuesday afternoon, around 1 o’clock, and the main room at Whiskers and Soda cat cafe is buzzing with a low din of 30 cat-happy customers, many of them children. Shannon Regan, a computer programmer, sits at a table, wearing a headset. Once a week, he drives 30 minutes to the café to work remotely. And yes, cats do jump on his laptop’s keyboard and press buttons. He doesn’t seem to mind about the cats or the noise. After working in silence at home, “a little noise can be comforting,” he said. His kids clamor to go with him to...

    Eric Roberts is the most hardworking, famous actor in Hollywood who you might not have heard of… but you’ve definitely seen him. That’s because he’s starred in approximately 667 movies and TV series – and has 77 upcoming (although that figure is sure to have changed by the time of publication). You may know him as the older brother of Pretty Woman icon Julia Roberts and the dad of horror scream queen and rom-com darling Emma Roberts, but this is one accomplished actor who deserves to be known in his own right. This year alone, Roberts, 67, has appeared in...

    Experts cite declining viewership of hosts like Colbert and Kimmel, begging the question if they're still relevant. Political satirist Tim Young says their months-long absence makes it "easy to forget" about them. "Their tired attempts at making funny news-based monologues that were always about Trump had become exhausting and unquotable, so they'd rarely even be covered by entertainment news anymore," Young told Fox News Digital. "Late night shows are so forgettable that I think people have just moved on... they just aren't missed." Viewership across the late-night landscape had been dropping long before the writers strike. In 2018, the midpoint...

    Concerns about the potential impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the entertainment industry have played a significant role in the ongoing Hollywood strike by actors and writers. That hasn’t stopped companies with studios from staffing up with AI specialists. While the strike by actors and writers reflects a broader set of concerns beyond the impact of AI on the entertainment industry, including pay and benefits, the threat posed by the emerging and increasingly sophisticated technology has raised alarm. Actors have expressed fears about AI being used to replicate an actor’s image and likeness without the actor’s consent, while writers have...
  • Unhappy compromise: Kevin Costner's estranged wife Christine Baumgartner is awarded $129,000 per month child support - just HALF the amount she demanded

    Kevin Costner is on the hook for six-digit monthly payments after a judge ruled on a tentative child support arrangement. The 68-year-old Yellowstone has been ordered to pay his estranged wife Christine Baumgartner, 49, a whopping $129,755 per month in child support payments. That means the figure is considerably more than double what Costner had originally offered his ex, though it is also only a little over half of what she had been asking for. The decision is only tentative and will be reassessed at a later hearing, according to court documents obtained by Fox News.

    A day after the Writers Guild of America’s May 1 call for a strike, a dozen or so members of the Set Decorators Society gathered to share intel. Discussion of layoffs kicked off the Zoom meeting and Pam Elyea, owner of L.A.-based prop house History for Hire, said she had to fire her receptionist and drum technician in March in anticipation of a work stoppage. Others nodded, echoing sentiments that they could not afford to keep all their staff in the face of what they expected to be a lengthy strike. “We’d been saving up, but every time we get...
