Dee Rees, Melissa McCarthy, and Nancy Meyers Debut Three Short Films for Walmart at the Oscars


– Walmart asked directors Dee Rees (Pariah, Mudbound), Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly), and Nancy Meyers (The Parent Trap, Something's Gotta Give, The Holiday), to direct three short films for them revolving around the concept of a Walmart box.
– The three short films aired last night. Rees and Meyer's were just one minute, while McCarthy's ran longer and was edited down for time.
– This is the second year of short films aired during the Oscars, as Walmart asked Antoine Fuqua, Marc Foster, and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldeberg. The definition of an upgrade as Walmart was forced to hike its minimum wage last month, but not without layoffs.
– The other talent: Dee Rees worked with Mary J. Blige and her trail-blazing cinematographer Rachel Morrison and features professional boxer Claressa Shields from Flint, Michigan. McCarthy's stars Tony-award nominated Keala Settle. Meyer's film features composer Hans Zimmer and P.J. Byrne.































ONTD, what do you think of them? And do you want to see Dee Rees direct a big budget sci-fi/fantasy film someday?
