China Still Not Complying With Wto Distribution Deal, Says Ifta

8 November 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An expanded Chinese presence at this week’s Afm and the recent finalization of the ‘long form’ agreement between China and the Motion Picture Association does not mean that film trade relations between China and the rest of the world have been normalized, says the Independent Film & Television Alliance.

Ifta president and CEO Jean Prewitt said that the Chinese presence at this week’s Afm had “exploded,” and that companies are still doing deals — albeit under old deal terms.

This year some 46 mainland Chinese executives were accredited as buyers, hailing from 23 companies. A further 12 companies took exhibition space as buyers.

The long form deal – essentially a crystallization of the 2012 agreement hammered out by the then vice presidents Xi Jinping and Joe Biden – was confirmed earlier this week by the Motion Picture Association, the organization which represents the six Hollywood ‘majors.’ The long form deal establishes rules on auditing, explanation of censorship rulings, »

Hollywood Studios Finalize Distribution Contract With China (Exclusive)

5 November 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood has finally put its relationship with China on a more stable, contractual footing after signing a “long-form agreement” with the Chinese authorities. The contract should help film companies doing business in China to collect payments in a more timely manner and give them the ability to audit state distributors.

The agreement is the belated result of the historic February 2012 agreement between China and the U.S. that was brokered in person by China’s then-Vice President Xi Jinping and U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.

That 2012 handshake deal established a new regime for revenue share distribution in China and expanded China’s import quotas – raising them from 20 films per year to 34 for revenue-sharing films.

However, as the agreement was not codified until now, there have been gray areas and behind-the-scenes disputes, some of which have become public knowledge. In recent weeks issues of possible under-reporting and ticket fraud within »

Prince Harry and the Obamas Join Forces For a Good Cause

28 October 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Prince Harry was in good company with First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden's wife, Jill, at the Joining Forces Invictus Games in Fort Belvoir, Va, on Wednesday. He donned a blue suit and kept his handsome streak going, showing off more sexy facial scruff. The event, at which Harry took the stage and spoke about his tours to Afghanistan, was organized to promote next year's Invictus Games, a multisport competition that brings together wounded veterans to participate in a series of games. That same day, Harry paid a visit to the White House and met up with President Barack Obama for the first time to discuss his participation in the big event. Obama later told reporters, "It is a great pleasure to welcome His Royal Highness Prince Harry here to the Oval Office. I've had an opportunity to spend a lot of time with so many of his family members, »

Maureen Dowd Fires Back at Critics After Joe Biden Denies Son’s Deathbed Wish for Presidential Run

27 October 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Maureen Dowd fired back on Tuesday at critics who’ve cast doubt on the accuracy of a recent column that seemed to depict a deathbed wish Beau Biden made for his father to run for president. “The column is accurate,” Dowd told New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan. The accuracy the column came into question after Vice President Biden appeared on “60 Minutes” on Sunday and seemed to, without naming her, dispute Dowd’s Aug 1. column, titled “What Would Beau Do?” Dowd denied reporting, as Biden put it, that Beau made a “Hollywood-esque” wish for him to run from his deathbed. »

‘The View’ Trots Out Bernie Sanders and Other Politicians to Boost Ratings

26 October 2015 4:56 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Monday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Joy Behar admitted a crush on the show’s first guest. No, it wasn’t Justin Bieber. It was a political heartthrob — Bernie Sanders, the 74-year-old senator from Vermont seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. Sanders held his own during two segments at the Hot Topics table opposite the show’s season 19 co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symone, Michelle Collins, Paula Faris and Behar.

With his wife, Jane O’Meara, looking on from the second row of the studio audience, Sanders made the case to viewers on why he’d be a strong contender for the White House, hitting a surprisingly policy-driven (for daytime) list of talking points, including healthcare, abortion and social security, before knocking his opponents. “This is not the party of Dwight David Eisenhower,” Sanders said of the Republicans. Then he gamely signed copies of his ’80s folk album for the co-hosts. »

16 Actors Impersonating Political Figures

22 October 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

Earlier this week, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” creator Larry David sent social media into a frenzy over his impression of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders during the first Democratic presidential debate Oct. 13. The tradition of impersonating political figures is a long one, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites! First up, the most recent “SNL” political skit starring some of the show’s staple actors. Taran Killam as Martin O’Malley; Kyle Mooney as Lincoln Chafee; Alec Baldwin as Jim Webb; Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton; and David as SandersThe rug was lifted on what everyone watching the first Democratic presidential debate was thinking: From Clinton’s (entirely too) well-rehearsed responses to Webb’s assertion that he indeed did serve in the Vietnam War, all the way to Sanders’ exclamation that the American people are tired of “hearing about those damn emails,” “SNL” hit all the markers.

‘The View': Joy Behar Goes Off on ‘Big Hypocrite’ Paul Ryan, Hillary Clinton’s ‘Mistake’

22 October 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The women of “The View” went bipartisan in their criticism during Thursday’s episode, raking both Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican congressman Paul Ryan over the coals. Clinton was the first one to be tossed onto the grill, as Whoopi Goldberg and her cohorts discussed Vice President Joe Biden’s announcement yesterday that he wouldn’t run for president. “I don’t believe like some do that it’s naive to talk to Republicans … for the sake of the country, we have to work together,” Biden said, in what the “View” crew took as a reference to Clinton listing Republicans among her enemies. »

Joe Biden Not Running for President: Let the Conspiracy Theories Begin!

21 October 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Joe Biden finally put an end to the most drummed-up hype in Washington today—he is not running for president in 2016. It seemed highly unlikely the that current vice president was going to announce otherwise: While you'd think 13 months would be enough time to devote to a campaign, his potential rivals have been on the trail for months; President Barack Obama had already said a lot of nice things about still-pretty-in-front-runner Hillary Clinton; and the pain of losing son Beau Biden is just still too palpable, understandably. While pundits are widely saying that this was his best and probably last chance to ever mount a competitive run for the presidency... You just can't fight a perfect »

Why Joe Biden just saved Leslie Knope a whole lot of heartache

21 October 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When "Parks and Recreation" debuted, Leslie Knope not only had a photo of Hillary Clinton on her office wall, but compared herself to the then-Senator, future Secretary of State, and current presidential candidate. But as the series went along, we also learned that Leslie loved Joe Biden — not just for his politics, but for his entire being. As she once admitted, he was not only on her celebrity sex list; he was her celebrity sex list. So as America waited to see if Biden was going to throw his hat into this presidential race, I wondered how Leslie might choose between two of her heroes. Now that Biden has rendered the choice moot by declining to run, I asked "Parks" co-creator Mike Schur what he thought Leslie would have done had Biden thrown his hat into the ring. This is what Schur wrote: "Well, it's a tough call. If you »

Someone check the temperature in Hell: “The View’s” Joy Behar is coming around a bit on Donald Trump. “You know, I’m starting to warm up to Trump a little bit now,” Behar said. “I’m not voting for him and I don’t like the race-baiting… but the guy is not as bad as the rest of them.” The comedian likes how Trump is a bit more flexible than other Gop contenders on issues such as abortion, raising taxes on the rich, and government-funded healthcare.
