    "Netflix" News & Discussion (Spoilers)

    Let's face it everybody, with the recent plummet in subscribers and the demise of their in-house animation department. Netflix is on track to go under. I doubt their proposed free-with-ads plan will save them.

    What would happen if Shari Redstone decides to sell Paramount Global

    If Shari Redstone and her National Amusements company finally decide to sell Paramount Global, what I would like to happen is for Sony to buy it, and then sell their existing Sony Pictures (Columbia TriStar) division to someone else, like MGM Holdings. With that, MGM and old SPE would merge into...

    My ViacomCBS/NBCUniversal joint-venture idea

    My idea for a joint-venture between ViacomCBS and NBCUniversal would be where both companies have a 50/50 ownership in their existing cable networks (Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, USA Network, Syfy, etc.). I know I have said this many times, but with this venture, said channels, especially...

    Will Paramount decide to cancel the theatrical releases for all of their Paramount Animation films after the release of "Rumble", not because of the current pandemic? The studio's next fully-animated feature after "Rumble" is "Under the Boardwalk", and that will be released July 22, 2022.

    Amazon Cinemas

    If Amazon ever wanted to start a movie theatre division, and would most likely do in the future, here’s how I would imagine what the chain would be like: The cinema chain would exhibit all the movies you would find at places like AMC, as well as indie/art house films, and Amazon...

    Will Disney renew their film financing deal with TSG Entertainment?

    I wonder if Walt Disney Studios will renew their film financing deal with TSG Entertainment, which they inherited from their purchase of 20th Century Fox?

    Will "Ron's Gone Wrong" affect the release strategies for the next animated features after it?

    I'm asking this, because I took a look at the seating charts for showtimes at different theatres (in the weekend afternoons and early evenings), and they’re not looking rather good in terms of attendance, hence an incoming box office bomb, which would show that families are now reluctant to go...

    A better name for post-Disney 20th Century Fox besides "20th Century Studios"

    I really don't like 20th Century Fox's new name being "20th Century Studios", because it doesn't really "pop" and is rather outdated (it ain't the 20th century no more, people!). I think Disney should rename the studio again, but this time to "Hollywood Pictures"! Unlike the old "Hollywood...

    When will "Unfiltered" end?

    I know this isn't animation-related, but I am tired of having to see promos of that awful remotely-produced Unfiltered show on Nick and skim through recordings of it just to watch for Nick promos (which is something I like to do), and keep in mind that remote TV production is beginning to...
