Has streaming made movies worse?

Streaming has changed the game.

Netflix is the clear leader, producing in 2020 more films than weeks in the year.

Amazon is increasing their movies produced for Prime.

There's also the old-time studios like Disney, Paramount.

What does it all mean for cinema? Many Hollywood insiders worry about the pressure studios are putting on themselves to maintain quality amid the huge jump in production.

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern Criticises Christchurch Massacre Film Project

  • Since being announced last Thursday (10th) the Rose Byrne-led film about Ardern’s response to the 2019 Christchurch mosque massacre has been widely criticized in New Zealand.

  • Today, veteran producer Philippa Campbell, a producer on TV hit 'Top Of The Lake', apologised for her involvement and said she had not realized the pain the film would cause.

  • “I have listened to the concerns raised over recent days and I have heard the strength of people’s views,” Campbell said in a statement to New Zealand media. “I now agree that the events of 15 March 2019 are too raw for film at this time and do not wish to be involved with a project that is causing such distress.”

  • New Zealand’s Prime Minister today criticized the project as poorly timed and focused on the wrong subject.

  • “In my view, which is a personal view, it feels very soon and very raw for New Zealand,” she told local media TVNZ. “And while there are so many stories that should be told at some point, I don’t consider mine to be one of them.”

  • A petition from the National Islamic Youth Association calling for the movie to be cancelled has gathered close to 60,000 signatures, arguing the film would marginalize “the victims and survivors and instead centres the response of a white woman”.

  • Lianne Dalziel, the Mayor of Christchurch, where the attacks took place, also said movie crews would not be welcome in her city.

  • “I’m just so outraged that they even think that this is an appropriate thing to do,” she told news outlet RNZ.


Weekend Box Office: In the Nadir

In a huge upset, A Quiet Place Part II is back on top of the weekend box office, with $11.7 million. The film has become the first to officially cross the $100 million mark since Sonic the Hedgehog passed it 16 months ago.

Despite overwhelming positive reviews, In the Heights debut weekend failed to make a showing, grabbing only $11.4 million. The film was expected to debut around the $20 million mark. The hybrid release with HBO Max will likely be the go-to-blame, but several others from the studio walked away with higher debuts.

Peter Rabbit 2 debuted to $10.4 million, with The Conjuring 3 close behind at $10.2 million. Cruella was 5th with $6.7 million.

Next week: Pixar's Luca debuts on Disney+, Kevin Hart's Fatherhood drops on Netflix, and The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard drops in theaters on Wednesday.

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Director Wishes He Made South Asian Roles ‘More Human’

Jon M. Chu regrets casting South Asian characters in his film “Crazy Rich Asians” in stereotypical roles, wishing he did something extra to make them seem “more human.”

Many of the darker-skinned South Asian characters are seen sparingly and only in parts such as servants or as guards. The film was criticized at the time in that regard, and Chu now addressed that criticism, saying he didn’t want to stray too far from author Kevin Kwan’s source material.

South Asian characters were present at the big wedding scene at the end of the film, Chu didn’t make them visible and included. He hopes to “pay more attention to that stuff” in the future.

“I didn’t understand some of the other contexts to that. So hearing it from people, for me, it was a learning experience. They’re just sort of there. I don’t give them the space to be there.”
