A makeover of the Sony Pictures Entertainment film marketing operation that began earlier this year gained steam Friday with the news that the unit’s president of domestic marketing, Dwight Caines, will be replaced by Christine Birch, who returned to the studio a little more than three months ago.
Josh Greenstein, Spe’s president of worldwide marketing and distribution, announced the management makeover in a memo to staff members. He said that Caines, whose contract is up this fall, “wanted to make a change and explore other opportunities after the ‘Ghostbusters’ marketing campaign is completed.”
The female-powered comedy remake premieres July 15 and Caines will leave later in the summer. Although insiders said Caines’ exit was voluntary, it had become clear since Greenstein lured Birch back to Sony — where she previously had worked for 12 years — that she and Caines had overlapping duties. A revamp seemed inevitable.

For months, writer/director Adam McKay has made it very clear that he’s more than interested in returning to work on Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to Marvel’s Ant-Man, a film that he helped write alongside star of the film Paul Rudd. While Marvel has yet to confirm that McKay will definitely be back, during an interview with Nerdist, the Anchorman director offered up some interesting news.
He said, “We’ve been talking to Marvel actually. We just talked to them the other day, and it looks like I will be involved. I don’t know if it’s gonna be right from page one. But it looks like I will definitely be involved. There you go. There’s a little headline for the fanboys!”

February can be kind of a pill -- it's dark, it's cold, you have to deal with or avoid Valentine's Day -- but at least it gives you a good excuse to stay home and binge-watch. Amazon just listed its February offerings for Prime Video streaming and Amazon Video purchase. For example, fans of "The Americans" can steam Season 3 (yay!), and you can check out Amazon Studios' first-major film, "Chi-Raq," from director Spike Lee.
It was recently announced that Prime Members can now add Showtime, Starz, and more video subscriptions to their Prime memberships for $8.99 per month. In February, members can use that feature to see the new seasons of "Billions," "Shameless," and "Black Sails," among others.
Here's the February 2016 lineup:
New in February – Available for Streaming on Prime
