Amazon Studios has quickly distinguished itself through a “pilot season program” that sees the company generating ten to twelve pilots a year, then polling viewers to help decide which ones to push to series. Transparent, from the second pilot season, is the first real breakout success from Amazon, but the studio’s output, pilots aside, is still primarily restricted to those who pay Amazon’s $99/year Prime membership fee. In addition to TV series there are also Amazon Studios movies in the works. But now Amazon is planning to expand, by producing and/or acquiring films which it will release in theaters, then make available to stream on Prime four to eight weeks after the theatrical debut.

At the FX TCA presentation, FX CEO John Langraf had a few things to say about the new season: “It’s a big sprawling, in some ways, more comedic [season], though at times, a very serious show. It’s set in the late ’70s against the backdrop of Ronald Reagan’s first campaign for President of the United States. Reagan is a character in it.” A few more explanatory details, including a bit about just how Reagan fits into Fargo season 2, are below. Read More »

We hope you weren’t too excited about the idea of Frank Darabont directing the Snow White and the Huntsman prequel, because that is no longer happening.

So now there’s The Huntsman, as the movie is called, with Chris Hemsworth set to return, but no Snow White (originally played by Kristen Stewart). But despite the fact that Darabont won’t direct The Huntsman there is good news, as a new lady villain is in the wings, with Emily Blunt in talks to play her. Read More »
George Lucas got out in front of press this week to promote his new film Strange Magic, which is based on a Lucas story and can potentially be seen as the last of the Lucas-involved Lucasfilm projects. Before selling Lucasfilm to Disney, George Lucas had planned to oversee the seventh Star Wars movie, and the early starting point for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a set of outlines he had written prior to the sale of his company.
But now that The Force Awakens is firmly in the hands of J.J. Abrams, Lucas says he has seen the film’s trailer, but doesn’t have any idea what the new story is. In short, the Star Wars creator doesn’t know any more about the new movie than the rest of us do. Read More »
