Netflix instant replay

If the rewind button was never enough for you, here’s some potentially good news: Netflix is testing an instant replay feature. This feature, dubbed instant scene-replay, allows viewers to pause whatever they’re watching and replay a just-watched scene.

Female-Led Movies

The results are in: female-led movies sell. For years, producers have assured us that female-driven films just don’t perform well at the box office. But if that was true once, times are changing. A new study finds that female-led movies outperformed male-led films at the box office between 2014 and 2017.

disney box office

Hard up for cash? Try to get in good with the House of Mouse. With three weeks left in the fever dream that is 2018, this year’s Disney box office has hit $7 billion globally.
