Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Will Make Movies for Netflix

Two film entertainment bigwigs, Amblin, led by Steven Spielberg, and Netflix, have signed a deal that will allow the former to produce and release multiple films for Netflix every year. This partnership reflects Netflix’s exponential rise in the film industry and its acceptance among renowned directors, such as Spielberg. It also shows a change in the industry; an age when home viewing gradually renders movie theaters obsolete.

In a press release posted on 21 June 2021, Spielberg’s global film and TV studio and Netflix expressed their enthusiasm and support for the partnership. Although the article didn’t reveal many details about the deal, it quoted the leaders of both parties.

“Steven is a leader and visionary with great creativity. His compelling stories and characters have inspired many people around the world, including myself. Netflix is happy to partner with Amblin, and we’re zealous to come together with their (Amblin’s) team. Our staff is thrilled and happy to be part of this memorable and historical chapter of Steven Spielberg’s cinematic experience,” commented Ted Sarandos, Netflix Co-CEO, and Executive Content Officer.

Spielberg, who was reportedly opposed to Netflix’s inclusion in the 2019’s Academy Awards, also had something positive to say about the partnership: “From the first moment Ted and I sat down to discuss this agreement, we knew that we had a great opportunity to tell our stories together in a different way. Netflix provides a new platform for our films. Combine that with the stories we continue to tell with our long-term friends at Universal and other companies, this partnership provides me with a fulfilling experience of working with Ted, Scott, and their team at Netflix.”

The deal represents a significant win for Netflix, which will get a consistent stream of Amblin features, although it doesn’t guarantee productions by Spielberg Pictures. At the same time, Amblin will carry on working on films with Universal, a move meant to preserve and protect the traditional theatrical experience. While Amblin has worked with Netflix to distribute its movies and shows on various streaming platforms, this agreement is the most significant they’ve signed thus far.

According to Scott Stuber, Netflix Chief of Global Films, “Amblin and Steven and great entertainment are one thing. You can’t separate them. Their enthusiasm and creativity enable to create films that entertain and challenge viewers. We can’t wait to start working with Steven, Jeff, and the entire Amblin fraternity on a new chapter of film production that will captivate audiences for generations to come.”

The partnership comes when Amblin has solidified its niche in the film and TV industry by releasing movies that have bagged coveted awards. For instance, the Green Book won the Best Oscar Picture, while 1917 took three Oscar awards, two Golden Globes and accrued over $385 million in the global box office. Nonetheless, Amblin and Netflix had previously partnered to create The Trail of the Chicago 7, nominated to the Academy Awards.

The coronavirus pandemic in 2020 might have suggested to Steven Spielberg that movie-streaming platforms are not going away soon. However, it is the future of the film industry and provides many business opportunities for Amblin. Today, the theatrical experience is a super spreader of COVID-19, and consumers are happy to watch movies at home and pay a “premier” for that. That said, Amblin’s deal with Netflix is perhaps the best move for the company.

Are Movie Theaters Safe at This Point of the Pandemic?

When the pandemic began, many places shut down. Today, news outlets report on companies, stores, and other locations opening back up. Many people are looking forward to returning to their favorite locales. For some, the movie theater is a fun destination to gather with friends and enjoy a movie. Others might wonder if going to the theater is safe, especially since the pandemic is ongoing. A trip to the theater can be an enjoyable experience if appropriate safety measures are in place.

The Covid-19 Virus

The Covid-19 virus travels through the air and can make a person sick by infiltrating their lungs, eyes, nose, or mouth. Some people have severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, coughing, or fever, while others may experience no symptoms. Anyone can carry the virus and pass it to others.

Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated

According to the CDC, vaccinated people can engage in activities without a mask unless required by law. If you are vaccinated, you can enjoy a somewhat normal experience at the movie theater. However, the vaccine lowers but does not eliminate the chances of catching the virus, so you still need to adhere to health regulations in theaters.

People who are not vaccinated must take precautions and safety measures at the movie theater because they are susceptible to the virus. Unvaccinated people must wear a mask and follow social distancing rules to protect others and themselves from covid.

People who have a compromised immune system should continue to take precautions, even if they have received the vaccine. The virus can cause severe damage to people who do not have a healthy immune system. If anyone experiences symptoms before going to the theater, they should stay home.

Tips for Staying Safe at the Theater

Before you visit the local theater, conduct online research to see if the theater area is safe. If there have been cases of covid in or near the theater, you might want to stay home or visit another theater.

You should also check the size of the theater building. For a safer experience, visit a theater with lots of space and ventilation. A small theater with little room and ventilation means that people will be close together, and the virus will travel easily. See if the theater has social distancing guidelines, preferably 6 feet or more.

Theater food is part of the experience, and if you are vaccinated, you can enjoy a snack at the theater but distance yourself from others. If you are not vaccinated or are immunocompromised, you should refrain from eating until you are away from others.

Finally, you want to see the theater’s protocol for cleaning. Contact the theater and ask them about their cleaning measures. Some questions you can ask are:

· Does the theater clean the area after viewing?

· Are there hand sanitizer bases for you to use?

· Should you wear a mask at all times?

· Does the theater do temperature checks?

You can also bring personal cleaning supplies to the theater. Use a wipe to clean up the seat before you sit or, bring a bottle of hand sanitizer to use when you need it. If you plan on taking a trip to the movie theater with family or friends, keep these tips in mind to ensure that everyone remains safe.

5 Best Movies About The Financial Crisis To Watch In 2021

Do You Remember the Great Recession?

Most people don’t find financial events very interesting. Unfortunately, when they do, that tends to be because something disastrous has happened. To name an example, consider the financial crisis of 2007 and 2008, which is sometimes called the Great Recession.

For those who could use a refresher, the whole thing was kicked off by the subprime mortgage crisis. Essentially, what had happened was that people packaged subprime mortgages into supposedly safe securities. Theoretically, even if one of the subprime mortgages failed, the rest of the security would retain value. In practice, what winded up happening was the bursting of the U.S. housing bubble, which wiped out subprime mortgages in horrific numbers. The U.S. financial industry was hard-hit, with the result that the international financial industry was hard-hit as well. On the whole, the Great Recession wasn’t as catastrophic as the Great Depression of the 1930s. However, that can be credited to the much increased willingness of world governments to intervene, thus preventing the global financial system from just collapsing on itself.

What Are Five of the Best Movies to Watch about the Great Recession in 2021?

Here are five of the best movies to watch about the Great Recession in 2021:

Inside Job

Technically, Inside Job isn’t a traditional movie. Instead, it is a documentary movie, which should shape interested individuals’ expectations about what they will see. In total, Inside Job can be divided up into five segments, which would how the conditions for the crisis came to be, how the U.S. housing bubble came to be, what happened in the crisis itself, whether anyone was held accountable for the crisis, and what the post-crisis situation was like at the time that it came out.

Larry Crowne

For people looking for something more entertainment-focused, there is Larry Crowne, which is a romantic comedy about a man who is forced to make severe life changes because of the crisis. On the whole, it is much more light-hearted than any of the other names on this list, as shown by the fact that it comes complete with a happy ending. However, one can nonetheless make the argument that Larry Crowne gives a look at what happened to a lot of people on the metaphorical ground as a result of the crisis.

The Big Short

The Big Short is one of the names that will come up the most in this context. In part, this is because of its high-profile cast, which includes well-known names such as Christian Bale, Steve Carell, and Ryan Gosling. However, it should also be noted that it provides a decent explanation of everything that happened, thus providing interested individuals with a good look at what went down. As such, if people are seeking something more comprehensive that is still storyline-driven, The Big Short could be it.

Too Big to Fail

Too Big to Fail is one more movie that sought to explain what happened in the crisis while remaining non-fictional in nature. However, it manages to stand out in a couple of ways. One, it focused more on the role that U.S. governmental figures played in the crisis. Two, it also gave more attention to how key executives with key firms were involved in the crisis.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is a follow-up to the famous Wall Street from the late 1980s. As such, it follows the fictional character Gordan Gekko, who has been released from prison after being convicted of insider trading as well as securities fraud. The story isn’t real. However, it is set in the crisis, meaning that it can be an indirect way for interested individuals to learn about the latter.

How Hate Clicks Make It Hard to Be Positive about Movies

What Are Hate Clicks?

Clickbait has been a thing for quite a while. However, some forms of clickbait have turned out to be much nastier than others. For proof, look no further than the use of hate clicks, which convinces people to check out something by making them feel either outraged or something similar. It shows up in a wide range of places, with an excellent example being how it has had a corrosive effect on people writing about movies.

Why Do Hate Clicks Make It Hard to Write about Movies in a Positive Way?

Essentially, the issues comes down to a matter of numbers. Websites need revenue to survive, which in turn, means that websites need clicks. These two things aren’t one and the same. However, every single click represents the potential to make more revenue. As such, the people responsible for running websites have strong incentive to increase the number of people clicking on their links using the full range of options that are available to them.

Unfortunately, hate clicks are quite effective in this regard. Generally speaking, people have been bombarded by marketing their entire lives, meaning that they are quite good are just ignoring messages. Due to this, websites need to provide some kind of strong incentive to convince them to click in spite of that reluctance. For movie websites, evoking a powerful emotion is an easy way of doing so. It is possible for them to stir up a wide range of emotions. However, there can be no doubt about the fact that outrage is one of the most convenient choices.

After all, stirring up outrage is as simple as insulting something that the writer knows that the intended audience enjoyed, which can be done within the space of a single headline. Once outraged, people will click on the article, comment on the article, and speak out about the article on social media. Much of this conversation will be negative in nature, but that matters very little because that conversation will create more conversation, thus resulting in more clicks. On top of this, it should be mentioned that there are numerous preexisting conflicts crisscrossing the cultural landscape, meaning that there are a lot of people out there who are already primed to fight. If people responsible for running movie websites are inclined towards cynicism, well, suffice to say that it is very easy for them to make these preexisting conflicts to flare up by prodding sore points.

Is There a Way to Break Out of This Trap?

Of course, it is possible for movie websites to break out of this trap. After all, not everyone reads their articles because they want to feel outraged, meaning that there is plenty of room for those who want to seek something more positive than hate clicks. For that matter, it is important to remember that being positive isn’t the same as praising everything that the writer sees. It is very much possible for writers to criticize something without deliberately going out of their way to court antagonism.

The problem is that this kind of thing takes extra effort. Our rationality steps into the background when we are riled up, meaning that it is easy to get us to do things when we are angry. As such, it seems safe to say that the struggle between positivity and the pursuit of hate clicks among movie websites will continue for the foreseeable future.

‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ at 25: ‘The Most R-Rated G You Will Ever See’

‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ is a Disney animated film from 25 years ago. Disney’s “Hunchback of Notre Dame” has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA. Due to the number of the films, the studio may have pushed for the rating. The film deals with the desire and fire of Gypsies and the menace of genocide in the 1800s.

But the fact that the darkest animated film by Disney is said to earn a rating equal to “Cinderella” shows the subjectivity of the rating system – and how much the tastes of parents have changed over the years.

MURPHY IS WANTED to adapt the 1831 story of the pretty girl of Roma Esmeralda, a character that got the attention of Parisian men, like Quasimodo, describing him as a “horrible” and a “man’s demon.” However, he soon realized his folly. “I was thinking, ‘Oh, God, I do not want to write a song, dance, watered-down movie, which makes this amazing literary work a Disney film,'” he explained.

However, he credited the then-executives of the Walt Disney Company for taking a hands-off approach. Of course, the Hugo novel, which concludes with the deaths of numerous major characters, was deemed “too depressing” for a Disney film. As a result, Murphy was forced to be inventive.

He decided to center the story on the vibrant fantasy world Quasimodo created while imprisoned in his bell tower. A festival will take place. Gargoyles that communicate. A hero worthy of admiration.

Hugo’s archdeacon becomes an evil magistrate in the new film. Instead of being whipped in the pillory, Quasimodo is pelted with vegetables and humiliated. Disney did not want to take on the church, producer Trousdale said.

Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz and Stephen Trousdale and Wise wrote a new song for the Disney film “Frozen”. The song was inspired by a cassette tape that arrived at the Walt Disney Studios with a cassette of the original song. The entire cast took part in it.

Kirk Murphy’s new film, “Frenzy,” is about a priest’s love affair with a Roma woman. In the film, he agonizes over his lust and his religious faith and his hatred of the Roma. He says it was inspired by a cassette tape he made of actor Kirk Schneckartz singing.

According to Wise, the studio felt that anything above a G would jeopardize the film’s box office.A G-rated film “does not contain anything that would offend parents, in the theme, nudity, language, violence, sex, or other matters,” he says. In 1968, the rating system was introduced.

“Hunchback” producer: “We never thought we’d get away with the term ‘hellfire'”. The first cut of the song didn’t pass muster for a G, but it wasn’t the words “hell” or “damnation” that the board took issue with.

“Hunchback” director “There was definitely a huge effort to emphasize the lighthearted aspects” of the film. Hahn “I’m sure I wouldn’t do that today — I believe there’s a truth-in-advertising obligation.”

The Best Movies About Making Movies

They make films about a wide range of topics, like the conquest of space, war, among many others. These movies aren’t always movies about making movies, but in some cases, they make movies that are. You can learn a lot about filmmaking just by watching behind-the-scenes movies, even if they’re not always completely realistic. The following is a list of films that are about making films.

The Player (1992)
One of the best American satirists is Robert Altman, who knows how to work in that style. Tim Robbins stars as a film executive who murders a screenwriter, who happens to be his wife (portrayed by Cynthia Nixon). While you’re making a movie with the actual Julia Roberts and Bruce Willis, show business does not stop.

Barton Fink (1991)
That’s correct. We also have another Coen Brothers film here. Due to the quality of the movies “Hail, Caesar!” and “Barton Fink,” we had few alternatives. With Barton Fink, it’s not so much about the movies as it is about their last efforts. The film’s title character is a brash New York playwright who is given the opportunity to write a Hollywood-based film. It happens frequently that writers get writer’s block when their scripts don’t come up to their expectations. John Goodman’s neighbor may be more than meets the eye.

Get Shorty (1995)
Chill Palmer’s dream is to leave the criminal world and focus on filmmaking. Your screenplay may be promising, but you have a major debt to your boss, who has connections in the industry. Shorty is based on a novel by Elmore Leonard, meaning that there is drama and humor in addition to the violence in the film.

Sullivan’s Travels (1941)
Preston Sturges decided comedies should be very powerful, and here’s how he put it: In self-parody, the story follows a director who decides to make a “serious” social drama called “Sullivan’s Travels.” Finally, he comes to realize that a comedy is just as serious as any other movie.

Bowfinger (1999)
As a low-budget action filmmaker, you’re attempting to make a name for yourself in the industry. I’m flummoxed. Bobby Bowfinger is one of the members of the fake movie cast that Murphy plays in his movie. Finally, you cast the actor’s look-alike (Eddie Murphy) and finish filming. That is completely unrealistic, right? That is very unlikely. Still, it provides entertainment in the movie “Bowfinger”.

Ed Wood (1994)
The combination of “Ed Wood” and “Dolemite is My Name” is quite apt, because both films were made by the same two individuals. However, “Ed Wood” was very successful, given that it was made in the mid-1970s. Martin Landau was nominated for his role as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood, even though Bela Lugosi died during the filming of the movie.

Hitchcock (2012)
It is widely accepted that Alfred Hitchcock is as eccentric as he is talented. People know Hitchcock regardless of what Frank Capra looked like. The story of the director-turned-filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock, stars Anthony Hopkins in the lead role. During the making of the film, he and his wife, Alma, worked on “Psycho.”

Pain and Glory (2019)
Your self-biopic necessitates legitimacy acquired through genuine accomplishments. To keep things simple, let’s say Pedro Almodovar created “Pain and Glory” first. The aging director films frequent collaborator Antonio Banderas in his last movie. Although you should avoid making a de facto biopic, you may pat yourself on the back if you intend to make a biopic de facto.
