Snapchat Teams With Gleam Futures On Marcus Butler-Fronted Original Series

In the U.K., Snapchat has partnered with a bevy of top media brands -- including digital talent management firm Gleam Futures -- to create 25 original ‘Shows’.

The Shows format was introduced by Snapchat stateside two years ago, and marks a separate effort from the app's just-launched slate of Snap Originals. Rather than proprietary Snapchat productions, Shows are created by publisher partners and housed within the Discover section of the app. Snap’s head of international content partnerships, Rami Saad, told The Drum that U.S. time spent in Shows has tripled since the beginning of the year, and that U.S. shows have garnered an audience of 5 million people in the U.K.

In addition to Gleam, Snapchat has partnered with 17 total media companies across the U.K., including noted news destinations like The Guardian and Vice, as well as digital players like Irish men's website Joe and online music platform Boiler Room.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about the Movie “Boiler Room”

A lot of times it seems like the world of the stock broker is best left to those that don’t have a heart to speak of and find it amusing to take advantage of people that have very little to invest and milking them for all that they have. When looking at how things are run in the real world the movies don’t look too far off the mark however. Giovanni Ribisi though plays a man that initially gets into the job for the promise of big money and a chance to show his family that he can be somebody.

Biopics vs. Their Fictional Counterparts

Some people’s lives are best told truthfully, others more loosely.

In one corner, we have Rocky, the iconic Best Picture-winning boxing movie starring Sylvester Stallone as the made-up Rocky Balboa. In the other corner, we have Chuck, an upcoming biopic starring Liev Schreiber as real-life boxer Chuck Wepner. The latter primarily depicts the 1975 bout between Wepner and Muhammad Ali, which inspired Stallone to write the script for Rocky. He’s since tried to downplay the connection, especially after being sued by Wepner, but it’s close enough to being a film a clef as any.

Chuck received mostly positive reviews when it played the big film festivals last fall, but it’s unlikely to become the phenomenon, let alone Oscar darling, that Rocky was. Its legacy surely won’t be as lasting, in part because true biopics don’t tend to get sequels. There are a lot of benefits to fictionalized accounts of real events and

‘Bleed for This’ Actors Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart on the Boxing Film’s Animal Instincts

‘Bleed for This’ Actors Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart on the Boxing Film’s Animal Instincts
[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Spectrum. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and the latest films On Demand. Today’s pick is “Bleed for This.”]

Miles Teller is proving to be an actor who specializes in roles that combine extreme effort and crippling excess. Aaron Eckhart, meanwhile, has become the kind of performer who can bring a well-worn specificity to grizzled supporting roles.

Combine those elements and you get “Bleed for This,” the latest film from Ben Younger (“Boiler Room”). Teller plays Vinny Pazienza, a boxer struggling to return to the ring after a debilitating neck injury. It’s a performance that showcases Teller’s physicality against the backdrop of a true-life story. As Pazienza’s coach, Kevin Rooney, Eckhart brings his ferocity to a role that requires a less obvious show of continual force.

Younger has said that “Bleed for This” is far from a movie solely for boxing purists; he also wanted to rope in audiences who don’t care about sports at all. It’s an admirable goal, but one that doesn

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

'XXX: Return of Xander Cage' Review: Vin Diesel Gives Us Sequel No One Wanted
Who wanted Xander Cage back? Is it you? It sure as hell isn't me. But he's here anyway, extreme-sports and lunkhead-espionage skills in tow. This cinematic equivalent of drool is the third in the series that started in 2002 by introducing Vin Diesel as Xander Cage, an extreme sports badass recruited by an Nsa boss (Samuel L. Jackson) to go undercover and flex his muscles. Ok, the assignment had something to do with Russians. But who remembers? Even Diesel wisely sat out the horrendous 2005 sequel (with Ice Cube) and found a

This review contains spoilers.

4.7 Deals With Our Devils

It’s quite literally a magical time to be a Marvel fan. Since Marvel’s Agents Of Shield last aired, fans were introduced to a world of magic in the Doctor Strange movie (hey Marvel, isn’t it time to announce the sequel?). But Marvel TV has its fair share of magic as well, and it’s all on display this week as half the team is lost in a very dark magical dimension thanks to the machinations of Eli Morrow.

The last few season, Agents of Shield has been all about Hydra and the Inhumans. Now, the series seems to be the place to explore the new Marvel world of magic.
