Netflix has a website for people who love spoilers

1 hour ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Avert your eyes, spoiler-phobes: Netflix, the streaming video service that is arguably the reason we care about spoilers in the first place, now has a special web page dedicated to the very phenomenon it helped create.

As spotted by The Wrap, the site is titled Living With Spoilers, and is broken into three sections, which demand to be discussed in detail. So consider this a spoilerific deep dive into Netflix’s site about Spoilers.

What kind of spoiler are you?

This is a flowchart so you can determine what kind of spoiler you are—”spoiler” meaning, in this case, a person who spoils. »

The Netflix effect: why don't we care about spoilers any more?

10 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A Netflix survey has found that 94% of people will carry on watching a show or film even if theyve heard a key plot point. Thanks to our timeshifted viewing habits, the spoiler is increasingly losing its power

You may have heard the story about the Usual Suspects, Bryan Singers serpentine 90s whodunnit. On its release, a nationwide cult of secrecy formed around the identity of the killer, preserving it so that others could enjoy the reveal until someone graffitied the name of the killer next to one of the characters on the classic lineup poster.

In the 90s, this was violence, the detonation of a shared cultural moment. But if it happened today, wed probably laugh it off, maybe even Instagram it. A new survey by Netflix has found that we increasingly dont care about spoilers: 76% of the 2000-odd respondents said that spoilers were now just a part of life, »

Walter White May Tackle Zombies In Chinese Adventure The Great Wall

22 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

According to Deadline, Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston is in early discussions with Legendary to co-star in their upcoming epic, The Great Wall. No word on who the actor may be in line to portray, but today’s announcement comes hot on the heels of Saturday’s news that Matt Damon is in talks with Chinese director Zhang Yimou – inked to direct – for a role. Damon’s slate is already starting to get crowded, but the pair are reportedly trying to arrange a time in his busy schedule so he can snag the other lead.

Based on a script by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro, the film will be produced by Thomas Tull, Charles Roven, Jon Jashni, Richard Suckle and Peter Loehr. In development for quite some time now, the project originally had Ed Zwick attached to direct. Man Of Steel Henry Cavill, True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgaard, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter »

Matt Damon Circling The Great Wall for Hero Director Zhang Yimou

22 September 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The film has been in development for years with Ed Zwick (Glory) previously set to direct with Henry Cavill and Benjamin Walker attached to play the leads.  However, that plan crumbled, and Zwick eventually left to go direct Pawn Sacrifice, so Zhang Yimou (Hero) stepped in.  The story—based on an idea by Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull and World War Z author Max Brooks—explores the mystery of why the Great Wall of China was built.  You think it was to keep out the Mongolian hordes? You fool!  It Is So Much More.  It's also a tourist destination and a way for studios to tap into the lucrative Chinese market. Hit the jump for more. According to Deadline, Damon is interested in working with Zhang, and the two almost got together on Flowers of War, but that film ultimately starred Christian Bale.  Scheduling conflicts might get in the way »

Movie Review: The Maze Runner

18 September 2014 9:04 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

In this day and age we, as a society, have become obsessed with the idea of a post-apocalyptic life. This has created an enormous output of post-apocalyptic young adult fiction titles. From I Am Legend to The Road, and from World War Z to The Hunger Games, these fiction titles have been transposed to film for the good of both movie fans and producers alike. The latest installment in this craze is The Maze Runner. The novel by James Dashner, on which the film is based, is the first book in a trilogy about a group of boys that live inside of a maze. Too vague?

The Maze Runner centers around Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), a young man without any memory, except for his name. He is thrown into the middle of “The Glade,” a society of only boys that exists in the center of a maze. Day in and day out, »

16 September 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Longtime DreamWorks Chief Financial Officer Larry Wasserman has joined David Ellison’s Skydance Productions in the same post.

In the newly created role, he will oversee Skydance’s finance, accounting and administrative operations. He’ll also support the analysis and execution of new initiatives.

The move comes two weeks after veteran TV executive Michael Wright was announced as the new CEO at DreamWorks, replacing Stacey Snider who will leave the company at the beginning of January. A DreamWorks spokeswoman said that the company would issue an announcement related to Wasserman’s departure later this week.

“I am thrilled to welcome Larry Wasserman to the Skydance family,” said Ellison, who’s the CEO of Skydance. “Larry’s wealth of knowledge and depth of experience make him the perfect addition to our company as we continue to grow and expand our film and television business.”

Wasserman spent a decade at DreamWorks in a variety of senior posts. »

Skydance Productions Names Larry Wasserman CFO

16 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Larry Wasserman has joined Skydance Productions in the newly created role of Chief Financial Officer. He will oversee Skydance’s finance, accounting, and administrative operations, as well as back up new initiatives of a company that right now is flying on all cylinders. Skydance CEO David Ellison hired Wasserman, who most recently was CFO for DreamWorks and spent a decade there, helping secure $1 billion in funding through Reliance and Jp Morgan Chase. Before that, Wasserman worked for Universal.

“Larry’s wealth of knowledge and depth of experience make him the perfect addition to our company as we continue to grow and expand our film and television business,” Ellison said.

Skydance has become a franchise factory, aligned with Paramount Pictures. They just wrapped the first installment of the Terminator franchise with Terminator: Genisys for July 1, 2015 release, and are shooting Mission: Impossible 5 with Chris McQuarrie and Tom Cruise; Star Trek 3 »

The Dead 2 Review

14 September 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back in 2010, the Ford brothers won over the hearts of zombie puritans everywhere with their African-set horror film The Dead, which many praised for paying homage to 70s and 80s Romero classics where zombies shuffled slower than myself waking up with a whiskey hangover. I, on the contrary, found the Ford’s delivery to be bland and characterless, reducing pacing to a sluggish stumble, but my complaints are some viewers’ main points of approval. For those simpletons, I can confirm The Dead 2 will satisfy your “Walkers Only” stance, as the Fords have repurposed Mumbai for their newest zombie thriller – and in the same breath, if you’re more like me, this undead sequel shambles about with the same vapid pulse that let The Dead become so recognizable.

With no real correlation to The Dead, the Ford brothers introduce us to an American turbine engineer named Nicholas (Joseph Millson) who must »

Release Dates Set for Two Additional ‘Terminator’ Movies

8 September 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“I’ll be back.” That famous line from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior applies not just to the Terminator character, but also to the film franchise itself. We knew that the sci-fi action series would be rebooted with the Schwarzenegger-starring Terminator: Genisys, and now release dates have been set for two additional Terminator movies from Paramount.

According to Box Office Mojo, Terminator 2 is due out on May 19th, 2017, and Terminator 3 is slated for release on June 29th, 2018. The plan is for both reboot sequels to film back-to-back. No further details are available at this time, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on these movies when more information surfaces. Terminator: Genisys hits theaters on July 1st, 2015 and is directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World, Game of Thrones):

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

The growing influence of China on blockbuster cinema

8 September 2014 3:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Hollywood looks east, China's influence on blockbuster cinema is growing all the time, Simon writes...

For movie studios with big blockbusters to sell, it would be fair to say that market saturation has become something of a problem. Films, particularly English language films, are a global business, with simultaneous release dates around the globe now very much the exception rather than the norm. Furthermore, declines in American box office takings have been comfortably offset in recent times by burgeoning receipts outside the Us.

Take, for instance, Sony's Spider-Man films. Since the release of Sam Raimi's original movie in 2002, each of the subsequent webslinger adventures has taken less and less at the American box office. The takings outside of the States? The general trend has been more positive than that.

However, in the era where a $1bn-grossing worldwide blockbuster is no longer a novelty - it was only back »

Sony Confirms Josh Greenstein to Head Marketing

5 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures Entertainment has hired Josh Greenstein as the studio’s president of worldwide marketing and distribution.

Greenstein will assume the role previously held by Jeff Blake, who was forced out in late July, and oversee the day-to-day management. He will report to Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.

Friday’s announcement came three days after Variety reported that Greenstein, the former Paramount Pictures chief marketing officer, was in final negotiations with Sony to succeed Blake.

Greenstein, who has been at Paramount since 2005 and previously served as co-president of marketing and executive vice president of creative advertising, had already informed his bosses at the Viacom Inc.-owned studio that he would not be renewing his contract when it expires at the end of this year.

Before joining Paramount, he served as head of marketing for Dimension Films.

Update: That was quick. Sony just sent the release, which runs below the brief update.

I’m hearing that Greenstein’s deal is closed and that it’s all over but the press release at this point. The official word should come before the weekend. He replaces Jeff Blake, who exited after launching Sony’s summer box office. Stay tuned.

New Spanish trailer for Rec 4

28 August 2014 11:04 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Spanish horror series Rec 4 takes to the high seas for its latest movie. Here's an action-filled new trailer...

After two extraordinarily terrifying and claustrophobic films, the Rec series headed off to a wedding in Rec 3: Genesis. And while the comic flourishes weren't entirely unwelcome, it felt more like a spin-off (a kind of Rec Gaiden) rather than a proper sequel to Luiso Berdejo and Paco Plaza's previous pair of films.

The good news is that Rec 4 takes the series back to its murky (and hopefully scary) roots. It takes place immediately after the second movie, and catches up with news reporter and zombie outbreak survivor Angela Vidal (Manuela Valesco).

More good news: Rec 4 looks about as close as we'll ever get to an Under Siege sequel with added zombies. The movie takes place on a ship in the middle of the ocean - presumably, the last refuge from the outbreak, »
