outer range

Josh Brolin is set to star in the Amazon series Outer Range, which he’ll also executive produce with Brad Pitt‘s Plan B Entertainment and Amazon Studios.

Hunters Auschwitz

Being in a disagreement with the official Auschwitz Memorial is not an ideal position for anyone, but given the circumstances, Hunters creator and co-showrunner David Weil seems to be doing it about as respectfully and thoughtfully as possible.

Over the weekend, the official Auschwitz Memorial Twitter account criticized the new Amazon series, which stars Al Pacino as the leader of a group of Nazi hunters in the 1970s, for “inventing a fake game of human chess” for a concentration camp flashback, calling it “dangerous foolishness & caricature.” Now Weil has responded, explaining his decision in a way that comes off as level-headed instead of overly defensive.

Maybe skipping the theatrical release isn’t the best path for streamers to take with their movies? Read More »
