SAG-AFTRA’s Funds Held in Trust Jump 4.5% to $171.7 Million

15 August 2016 6:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

SAG-aftra’s funds held in trust for others have increased by 4.5% to $171.7 million since last year, according to the union’s latest filing with the federal government.

Those funds have been at the center of a long-running dispute, dating back to a 2007 suit filed by Ken Osmond (“Leave It to Beaver”) over how foreign royalties and residuals are handled by the union.

The disclosure came in the July 29 filing of SAG-aftra’s Lm-2 report with the U.S. Department of Labor for the fiscal year that ended on April 30 in the category of “funds held in trust for others.” The 2015 report showed a 7.5% gain in the funds held for others to $164.3 million; the 2014 report listed those funds at $153.04 million, a 16% jump from 2013’s figure of $132.26 million.  In 2014, the union insisted that the majority of funds held in trust relate to production security deposits and residuals reserves — and that only a »

12 July 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Free State Of Jones Review

23 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Free State Of Jones can be defined as a Civil War “epic” only in length, as this two-hour-plus disaster slowly plays out like a never-ending highway pileup (we’re talking 70 cars deep, at least). There’s absolutely no focus, horrendous over-bloating, and a cataclysmically inept method of storytelling that incoherently blurs numerous cinematic deliveries.

Writer/Director Gary Ross begins with his colonial answer to Saving Private Ryan‘s D-Day opening, only to devolve his “true story” into a “Whitesplaining” history lesson complete with informational text blurbs and eroded photos from the 1800s. Truly – and frustratingly – this is a movie that never ends, marching on for what seems like an eternity of dopily dry historical regurgitation. Tedious, emotionally-numbing, when-is-this-over regurgitation.

Matthew McConaughey stars as Confederate defector Newton Knight, a pioneer who leaves his wife and child to avoid hanging. Newt eventually meets up with a group of runaway slaves – led by »

'Bad Moms' trailer is for every mother who ever wanted to say, 'You know what? Screw it.'

3 May 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you didn’t know, I’m a mom. I’m living a weird geek-mom-meets-yoga-pants version of Leave It To Beaver with my husband, our two kids, our suburban house, and our gaggle of pets. There are days I pick a kid up from practice before Table Top game night. But not fitting into any of the pre-assigned “Mommy” boxes can make everything from playdates to Pto an awkward experience. Too commercial to be a Crunchy Mom. Too career-oriented to be a Mom-bie (Zombie Mom). Too busy to be a Soccer Mom. Too worried to be a Free-Range Mom, but too lackadaisical to be a Helicopter Mom. The list goes on and on of what a mom is Supposed to be. Then the trailer for Bad Moms dropped, and I actually saw a reflection of myself. Is…is this what men feel like when they watch trailers for every other broad comedy? »

How long will the Superhero Era last? Searching for clues in the history of family comedies

26 April 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a few weeks, with the arrival of Captain America: Civil War, one more superhero film will march on the box office and swallow the planet’s culture whole. And once again, we will ask: how long can this go on? Not long ago, a person could go to the multiplex in the middle months of the year and barely glimpse a superhero. 10 years ago, in between Superman and X-Men, there was still plenty of room for pirates, cars, spies, and gangsters. 20 years ago, there wasn’t a cape to be found in the movie theaters and we made do with aliens, tornadoes, hard-charging lawyers, and Renée Zellweger. These days, however, from March to September, you can’t go near the multiplex without getting slapped in the face by an airborne cape. Nothing lasts forever, of course, but the superhero genre has already far outlived fad status. So how long »

Bates Motel Season 4 Review

6 March 2016 2:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

It’s always notable when a show manages to re-engage viewers after leaving them ready to jump ship over a season ago. Bates Motel has been fighting against the onset of redundancy since it began (Who cares how Norman Bates becomes a killer? is a somewhat justified question), and it began to lose that fight last year. I would have defended the show to someone asking that previous question in the first two seasons; in season 3, I probably would have answered with a mumbled, disinterested shrug, the equivalent of a, “Not me – anymore.”

There’s creativity and a twisted bent to the open two-episode blast of the show’s fourth season that immediately made me remember what I liked about Bates Motel from the beginning. Question: Who cares how Norman Bates becomes a killer? Answer: Anyone who likes truly batty drama, just-over-the-top-enough performances, »

SAG-aftra Hit With Costs Over ‘Leave It to Beaver’ Actor’s Lawsuit

26 January 2016 6:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A federal appeals court panel has ruled SAG-aftra is on the hook for the $330,000 it paid to Ken Osmond and his attorneys five years ago to settle his class-action suit over foreign tax revenues.

In a Jan. 15 ruling, the three-judge panel denied the union’s appeal of a 2013 ruling siding with the Federal Insurance Co., which refused to reimburse the funds paid to the “Leave It to Beaver” actor.

It’s the latest development in a long-running dispute over “foreign levies,” which are collected for performers from countries through mechanisms such as taxes on video sales and rentals to compensate copyright holders for reuse.

SAG, the WGA and the DGA began collecting the funds in the early 1990s on behalf of members and nonmembers. Starting in 2005, several legal actions have been filed over alleged mishandling of the funds with SAG-aftra brushing off the allegations and insisting it’s done nothing wrong. »
