Without Theaters, Are ‘Bloodshot,’ ‘Onward,’ ‘The Hunt’ & Others Succeeding On VOD?
The box office is non-existent. Thanks to the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the majority of the world’s cinemas are now shuttered, and in the Us, at least, it appears this is going to last through the months of April and May. And without box office numbers, how are we supposed to come up with a ranking of how well a film does and if it’s actually as popular as a studio hopes? Well, thankfully, the studios have decided to use this pandemic to test the waters on a straight-to-vod market.

The ‘Succession’ Opening Credits You Love So Much Owe a Lot to David Fincher — Watch

The ‘Succession’ Opening Credits You Love So Much Owe a Lot to David Fincher — Watch
Succession” is one of HBO’s most acclaimed drama series and an Emmy frontrunner in 2020, and its popularity has been bolstered in part by its addicting opening credits sequence. The 90-second sequence is set to Nicholas Britell’s Emmy-winning original theme music and cuts together footage of the New York City skyline with home video footage of the Roy family. The grainy home videos remind viewers about the privilege and isolation of the Roy family at the start of each episode. It turns out this now-classic opening credits sequence owes a lot of credit David Fincher, who crafted virtually the same sequence to open his 1997 mystery thriller “The Game.” Both openings have been embedded in videos below.

An eagle-eyed Reddit user recently noticed the similarities between the “Succession” and “The Game” opening credits and brought it to the attention of viewers. Fincher’s 1997 movie begins with grainy home video footage

Terminated ‘Matrix 4,’ ‘Uncharted’ Film Crews Demand Help From Studio Babelsberg

Terminated ‘Matrix 4,’ ‘Uncharted’ Film Crews Demand Help From Studio Babelsberg
Germany’s Studio Babelsberg is seeking to find a settlement with hundreds of film crew members following the shutdown earlier this month of Warner Bros.’ “The Matrix 4” and Sony Pictures’ “Uncharted” amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The production stop has left many independent film crew members without pay and more than 300 have formed a working group that is threatening legal action unless it reaches an agreement with the studio.

Lana Wachowski’s follow-up to her and Lilly Wachowski’s hit sci-fi trilogy, starring Keanu Reeves, and Ruben Fleischer’s “Uncharted,” featuring Tom Holland – known officially at Studio Babelsberg under their respective working titles, “Project Ice Cream” and “Girona” – had not yet begun actual filming before they were shut down, but both had been in preproduction, with “Uncharted” only days away from the start of principal photography.

In a statement to Variety, Studio Babelsberg CEO Charlie Woebcken said it was not possible to say “when,

‘When The Streetlights Go On’ Trailer: New Quibi Series Is Giving Off Some ‘Brick’ Vibes

Small towns are great places to grow up. Many of them are picturesque, and their residents foster meaningful relationships with each other, most importantly. They’re places where the barber, pharmacist and bar owner—possibly in that order—ask how your kids are doing and you ask them the same while walking down Main Street. Bearing that in mind, these same communities swap that friendliest of camaraderie with the deepest depths of grief when tragedy strikes one of their own.

‘The Good Fight’ Season 4 Trailer: Things Are About to Get ‘Motherf*cking Nuts’
One of the best drama series on television that you’re probably not watching returns for a fourth season on April 9, 2020. Yes, Season 4 of “The Good Fight” debuts on streamer CBS All Access in less than two weeks, with a doozy of an episode that sees Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) living in an alternate reality where Donald Trump was never elected, and Hillary Clinton is the current president of the United States. It’s maybe one of the finest hours of television you will see this year. Ahead of that premiere, CBS has released a trailer for the upcoming season, which you can check out below.

‘How to Survive a Plague’ Director on Coronavirus: ‘I Don’t Know If America Is Going to Survive This’

‘How to Survive a Plague’ Director on Coronavirus: ‘I Don’t Know If America Is Going to Survive This’
For David France, the chaos surrounding the coronavirus pandemic is depressingly familiar.

When he observes the disaster playing out in New York and other parts of the U.S., the journalist and filmmaker behind the 2012 documentary “How to Survive a Plague” is reminded of the bureaucratic incompetence and overwhelmed healthcare system that led to critical failures in the country’s response to AIDS. It’s a crisis that will lead to suffering and death, and one that France thinks could fundamentally alter the fabric of American life. But it’s also a challenge that’s inspiring countless acts of heroism and generosity similar to the kind of advocacy highlighted by “How to Survive a Plague.”

France, who directed the upcoming HBO documentary “Welcome to Chechnya,” is currently in the early stages of a new project that will highlight coronavirus activism. He spoke with Variety about the lessons from the AIDS

Why We Needed ‘Man of Steel 2’ Before ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’
Man of Steel opened in June 2013 and performed well, but not at the level that Warner Bros. hoped. In a world where The Avengers was able to conquer the box office and set new records, Man of Steel ultimately ended up with a worldwide take of $668 million, which is good! But that's not what Warner Bros. wanted for a new Superman movie that cost $225 million. Superman is a household name and his new movie was coming from Zack Snyderand Christopher Nolan. Clearly, Superman on his own wasn't going to cut it, especially with Marvel already …
