Disney's Dominance Is Changing How Movies Are Released

(I thought that was supposed to be Aslan at first oop)

"You'd be crazy to put a big picture against them."

Former Sony Pictures Chairman Jeff Blake



  • Because of Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm, Disney's marketshare is 35%, way up from 14% a decade ago.

  • it's had 11 of the top 20 box office hits in the past five years.

  • "Far From Home" was lucky to get its release spot, but it was also co-produced by Marvel.

  • It's not just bc of Disney's ability to stake release dates, but the staying power of the releases as well. Other studios have a choice - Just risk it, or make counterprogramming that often still doesn't get seen.

  • There's a handy infographic at the source that shows just how many new releases Disney has staked out.

Jaden Smith Opens a Free Food Truck for Skid Row Residents

https://instagram.com/p/BzopDsuAFS4


Smith's new endeavor is called the "I Love You Restaurant" which is a free food truck that gives free vegan food to residents of Skid Row, a notoriously disenfranchised, neglected part of Los Angeles where many of the residents are homeless and some battling other issues such as addiction, hunger, and unemployment. Earlier this year, Smith partnered with a local church in Flint to launch a mobile water treatment system. OP hopes that Smith can partner with an organization to continue this food truck in Skid Row.

Beneath the Tamarind Tree: A Story of Courage, Family, and the Lost Schoolgirls of Boko Haram

In the early morning of April 14, 2014, the militant Islamic group Boko Haram violently burst into the small town of Chibok, Nigeria, and abducted 276 girls from their school dorm rooms. From poor families, these girls were determined to make better lives for themselves, but pursuing an education made them targets, resulting in one of the most high-profile abductions in modern history. While the Chibok kidnapping made international headlines, and prompted the #BringBackOurGirls movement, many unanswered questions surrounding that fateful night remain about the girls’ experiences in captivity, and where many of them are today.

In Beneath the Tamarind Tree, Isha Sesay tells this story as no one else can. Originally from Sierra Leone, Sesay led CNN’s Africa reporting for more than a decade, and she was on the front lines when this story broke. With unprecedented access to a group of girls who made it home, she follows the journeys of Priscilla, Saa, and Dorcas in an uplifting tale of sisterhood and survival.

Sesay delves into the Nigerian government’s inadequate response to the kidnapping, exposes the hierarchy of how the news gets covered, and synthesizes crucial lessons about global national security. She also reminds us of the personal sacrifice required of journalists to bring us the truth at a time of growing mistrust of the media. Beneath the Tamarind Tree is a gripping read and a story of resilience with a soaring message of hope at its core, reminding us of the ever-present truth that progress for all of us hinges on unleashing the potential of women.

Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® announce a smaller loaf of bread for single people




According to the United States Census Bureau, 28% of US households are single-person households – the fastest growing household size in the US. Often times, people won’t buy bread or when they do are left with stale leftovers that are thrown out creating more food waste.

To help combat this, Arnold®, Brownberry® and Oroweat® Bread announced their new Simply Small bags with 10 slices that will retail for $2.49.

“As one of the largest bread brands in the country, we feel a responsibility to meet our consumers’ needs, regardless of life stage or household size. We are very excited to finally be able to cater towards the growing single-person household demographic,” said Diana Kattan, Associate Brand Manager.

“We're hopeful that our new Simply Small product line not only brings consumers back to the bread aisle, but helps to alleviate some of the waste in today’s food industry,” she added.

Big Machine Records Announces Line of Taylor Swift 7" Vinyl Singles



How do Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun plan to ruin Taylor's career now that they own the masters of her back catalogue? By releasing 13th anniversary vinyl singles, of course!! Last month it was announced that Big Machine would be releasing a limited edition 7" single of Taylor's debut single, Tim McGraw. Today, the line has been expanded with a teal vinyl release of Teardrops on My Guitar.

According to a user on r/vinylreleases (who correctly claimed that Teardrops would be released after Tim McGraw before it was announced) there are three more singles to be released by the end of the summer!

It's worth noting that Taylor (who is a credited songwriter on both songs) will receive a chunk of the profits from these singles.

Ariana Grande reflects on herself, latest album, engagement to Pete Davidson, and Mac Miller



On relationship with Pete Davidson: "My friends were like, ‘Come! We’re gonna have a fun summer.’ And then I met Pete, and it was an amazing distraction. It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him. I’m like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist. I still don’t trust myself with the life stuff."

On her tweet regarding Mac Miller and her's breakup: "People don’t see any of the real stuff that happens, so they are loud about what they think happened, they didn’t see the years of work and fighting and trying, or the love and exhaustion. That tweet came from a place of complete defeat, and you have no idea how many times I warned him that that would happen and fought that fight, for how many years of our friendship, of our relationship. You have no idea so you’re not allowed to pull that card, because you don’t fucking know. That’s where that came from."

On how she imagines herself: "I can see this stronger, amazing, fearless version of myself that one day I hope to evolve into. Sometimes I try to be that for my fans before I actually am that myself. I think I’ve been avoiding putting in the work. You know how that gets: You push your therapist away at some point, but then you have to get back to it."

On recording Thank U, Next: "If I’m completely honest, I don’t remember those months of my life because I was (a) so drunk and (b) so sad. I don’t really remember how it started or how it finished, or how all of a sudden there were 10 songs on the board. I think that this is the first album and also the first year of my life where I’m realizing that I can no longer put off spending time with myself, just as me. I’ve been boo’d up my entire adult life. I’ve always had someone to say goodnight to."

Nicki Minaj calls out Wendy’s for always taking spicy chicken nuggets off the menu




Wendy’s recently revealed that their very popular Spicy Chicken Nuggets will return to all restaurants next month on August 19th. The news was met with excitement on Twitter, especially by those following Chance The Rapper who hoped the chain would bring them back on social media. But it was rapper Nicki Minaj who was frustrated with the fast food chain for removing them from the menu to begin with.

“Why do y’all keep taking it off the menu in the first place," tweeted Minaj in a reply to Wendy’s. “Just leave it. Y’all mad aggy.”

Wendy’s promptly responded to Minaj, writing, “Sorry Queen. When people aren’t buying something they take it away. Hopefully they stay around this time?”

One Barbz member replied to the chain writing, “Damn Wendys knows they can’t roast the QUEEN.”

They responded to the unemployed fan with, “Too much respect to even try.”

Disney moves The Woman in the Window to 2020

Oscar-less Amy Adams will go another year without winning an Oscar as Disney is taking her thriller The Woman in the Window out of its award-season friendly October release date and moving to an unannounced 2020 date.

The film will now be retooled and will spend a week on reshoots to help clarify the final act that left test audiences confused. Fox 2000's president (who is leaving the studio shortly) stated that the novel the film is based on is very complex and the film was tested early for that very reason.

Disney still has award-potential films from Fox in Ford vs Ferrari, Jojo Rabbit, and A Hidden Life so not all is lost for the former film studio.

Aly & AJ: Full Album in 2020 + They Wanna Tour w/ Carly Rae Jepsen



Then & Now
· Aly: "I think the longer that we make new music and put out records and release even just one-off songs, I think the less we'll play from the past."
· They do want to give ode to the songs that have sustained their career, but they also want to make sure their new music is being introduced in their live performances.
· Says 'Don't Go Changing' brings them full circle with 'Rush' and goes back to, "be every colour that you are".
· Thinks they'll always play 'Rush' and 'Potential Breakup Song' in their set ups, saying those are staple songs and they love the crowd's energy when those songs are being performed.

’80s-inspired Synth Pop
· AJ: "I feel like a lot of what I'm hearing on Top 40 is kind of... some of it’s great, and some is like, I've heard this."
· Describes their new sound as modern without being too much of a throwback.
· Listened to some Robert Palmer, Peter Gabriel, Genesis, and a lot of great '80s hits from the past.

Political Anthems
· Aly: "There are some, obviously, pop artists and songs out there that are socially conscious or political, but there's not many. Especially on Top 40 radio - it's all very much love-based."
· Are hoping to dive deeper into social matters for their next songs.
· Interested in writing political songs, songs that empower women, that empower men, and speak to this generation.
· 'Sanctuary' is their favourite song from their latest EP. They say the undertones for their EP 'Sanctuary' are religious-based (they grew up in a Christian family), but they do have a sense of responsibility for what they need to be writing about. They are vocal about their beliefs when referring to themselves, but they don't agree with preaching.

Goals
· AJ: "We are going to get in the studio when we get home. Probably starting like end of July, August."
· They want to release a couple of new tracks before the end of this year.
· Their goal is to release a full album by late 2020.
· They have a "dream list" of people they want to tour with and Carly Rae Jepsen is high on that list.

Kristin Davis gets candid on ‘Red Table Talk’ recalling her Black children’s experience with racism



Davis is opening up about being a white mom to two Black children 
A baby boy she adopted in 2018, and daughter Gemma Rose, 7½, whom she adopted in 2011.

Davis was left outraged when people remarked that her baby girl would become “a great basketball player” someday. She observed another example of “institutionalized” racism.
Gemma was a bit older and “a young white girl holding a swing for her friend across the playground, even though Gemma had been patiently waiting her turn to,” 
Davis said school administrators dismissed her and said, ‘We just see them all the same. We don’t see color,’

Being the mother of two Black kids has made Davis fully aware of her own white privilege.
"I don’t know how every person of color has gotten through this. I don’t understand how you could take this every day. This is what I want to say, from a white person adopting [black children]: You absolutely do not fully understand. There’s no doubt. There’s no way you could. Should White People Adopt Black Kids? It’s one thing to be watching [racism] happening to other people and it’s another thing when it’s your child. And you haven’t personally been through it. It’s a big issue. I will never be black, no matter how hard I try. … That is the truth, and we have to accept it. And therefore I will never be able to say to Gemma, ‘I understand how you feel because this happened to me.’ That’s what’s painful and hard.”

Davis has made it her mission to put her daughter in situations “where I was the only white person.”
