After the latest Warner Bros. Discovery debacle surrounding Coyote vs. Acme, it’s becoming increasingly clear that David Zaslav should resign. What we’re looking at right now is the last straw of the last straw. We’ve certainly seen too many at this point. It is also completely irresponsible of Zaslav and Warner Bros. Pictures leadership to reject any offers to buy Coyote vs. Acme. Netflix, Amazon and Paramount all have an interest in the film. Hell,…"David Zaslav Needs to Resign As Warner Bros. Discovery CEO"
In what will likely be overturned by the Department of Justice or FTC, Paramount and Warner Bros. Discovery are in early merger talks. This is a developing story. One can only hope that the government steps in and stops it in the path over monopoly concerns. Help us DOJ and FTC, you’re our only hope! What we know at the moment is that Shari Redstone is looking to sell her shares in Paramount Global parent…"Paramount, Warner Bros. In Talks To Merge"
The Hollywood studios have begun speaking out and condemned the recent Hamas attacks and are standing with Israel. Paramount Global was the first studio to release a public statement in a post on Instagram. “Paramount Global condemns the terrorist attacks by Hamas. We stand with the people of Israel and the global Jewish community. We stand with all the innocent lives impacted. We stand with the children who deserve to be children. We stand united…"Hollywood Studios Condemn Hamas Attacks, Stand with Israel"
David Zaslav is the perfect example of everything that is wrong with Hollywood and has no business running Warner Bros. Discovery. Is it too late to undo the merger that landed Warner Bros. at Discovery Communications? Action after action on account of Zaslav is just sickening and infuriating. As someone who loves movies and has great respect for the work that that Harry, Sam, Albert, and Jack Warner built together, watching everything happening just makes…"David Zaslav Is Bad For Warner Bros. And Hollywood"
Casey Bloys is wrong to deflect anti-trans comments when asked about JK Rowling’s involvement in a new Harry Potter series for MAX. I don’t know how many times that I have to keep repeating myself. At this point, anything that Warner Bros. Discovery decides to do with its social media during Pride month will be nothing more than performative allyship. The fact that Casey Bloys just shrugged off concerns is disappointing in and of itself.…"Casey Bloys Is Wrong To Deflect Anti-Trans Comments"
For better or worse–because it is a terrible name for a streaming service–the HBO Max rebranding into Max will begin on May 23, 2023. Warner Bros. Discovery made the announcement on Wednesday. I was offline because of Passover’s final two days and as such, I’m just now sharing the information with readers. While the service will initially launch in the US, WBD will begin rolling out in international markets where HBO Max is currently available, starting…"Max: HBO Max Rebrand Begins On May 23, 2023"
On the eve of Warner Bros. marking the studio’s 100th anniversary, it breaks my heart to read that David Zaslav wants a Harry Potter series. I wish I was going into the anniversary by getting ready to schedule something about the studio’s anniversary. After all, 100 years is a pretty big deal. Instead, I’m taking the time, yet again, to write another open letter to Warner Bros. It’s an unfortunate trend that started with the…"Warner Bros.: An Open Letter to David Zaslav"
David Zaslav is still in the early months as Warner Bros. Discovery CEO but his legacy is going to be the importance of physical media. Cancelling Batgirl and Scoob were only the start for the WBD CEO. What he is doing is dangerous and is setting a bad precedent. If canceling films were not enough, HBO Max is pulling content left and right from the streaming service. Many of which, in recent weeks, have been…"David Zaslav Shows Importance of Physical Media"
The Nexstar Media Group has officially acquired a majority stake in The CW Network from Paramount Global and Warner Bros. Discovery. In recent months, the network canceled a number of series. A number of series to end their runs during the past season came from the Arrowverse. Most recently, it was announced that the upcoming season of The Flash would be its last. Outside of The Flash, current DC shows that are airing during the…"The CW Network: Nexstar Acquires Majority Stake"
In the days following the cancellation of Batgirl, it became more than apparent that racism and transphobia played a role. Prior to logging offline for Shabbos, I started seeing social media leaking the film’s plot and test screening reviews. As a transgender woman let alone film/TV critic, I couldn’t be more surprised by what I saw. The fact of the matter is I don’t like that my gut instinct was right: racism and transphobia were…"Batgirl, Racism, and Transphobia"
