CW Expects to Notch Volume Gains in TV’s Upfront Market

19 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Advertisers attracted to a growing slate of superhero dramas and a revival of the long-running drama “Dynasty” helped boost upfront volume at the CW, another signal that the 2017 market for TV advertising could be more robust than had been previously expected.

The CW expects a gain in volume of advance ad commitments of between 3% and 5%, according to a person familiar with the matter. This means the network, owned jointly by CBS and Time Warner, could have collected commitments worth between $490.9 million and $549.4 million. In 2016, the CW notched commitments believed to be valued between $476.6 million and $523.2 million.

TCM goes to war on Memorial Day: But thorny issues mostly avoided

29 May 2017 9:26 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Submarine movie evening: Underwater war waged in TCM's Memorial Day films In the U.S., Turner Classic Movies has gone all red, white, and blue this 2017 Memorial Day weekend, presenting a few dozen Hollywood movies set during some of the numerous wars in which the U.S. has been involved around the globe during the last century or so. On Memorial Day proper, TCM is offering a submarine movie evening. More on that further below. But first it's good to remember that although war has, to put it mildly, serious consequences for all involved, it can be particularly brutal on civilians – whether male or female; young or old; saintly or devilish; no matter the nationality, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other label used in order to, figuratively or literally, split apart human beings. Just this past Sunday, the Pentagon chief announced that civilian deaths should be anticipated as “a »

Janelle Monae to Lead Charlie's Angels Reboot in 2019?

23 May 2017 4:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly two years after Elizabeth Banks was first sought to direct Sony's Charlie's Angels remake, the project is finally moving forward with new writers. The studio has brought on Narcos creators Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro to rewrite the script, which was first worked on by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast). While no cast members are in place yet, this report claims that Janelle Monae (Hidden Figures, Moonlight) is at the top of the studio's "wish list" for one of the Angels.

The Tracking Board reports that Sony wants at least one of the Angels to be black, and while Janelle Monae is at the top of the studio's list, casting hasn't even started yet since the script isn't finished. This report also claims that Sony will hand out a "prime 2019 release date" very soon for Charlie's Angels, although there is no indication as to what this date may be. »

Not all of these movies ended up as critically-acclaimed award winners, but frankly, we love them anyway. There’s just something sweetly nostalgic about seeing a TV show you loved when you were younger, or even an older TV show that you missed out on, reimagined for the movie screen.

Tower

21 March 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A fateful day is re-examined by its survivors, whose stories are told via a brilliant narrative arrangement, and the use of animated recreations is only one aspect of it. The Texas tower shootings put our present, everyday reign of violent terror in a humanist context. It’s not exploitative — the killer’s name is barely mentioned. It works, it’s riveting, and its positive message is one of calm sanity. Highly recommended.
