FX CEO John Landgraf Explains Why Those Netflix Ratings Aren’t to be Trusted

When Netflix started reporting its own ratings — as it has for films like “Bird Box” and TV shows like “You” — the entertainment industry jumped on the numbers like a kid opening a gift that’s been wrapped and under the tree for months. Now, the lovingly appointed “mayor of television” is here to tell us why the prize inside may not be exactly what we thought.

Speaking at the FX TCA panel Monday morning, CEO John Landgraf said, “Netflix is not telling you the full story.” The key difference is the measurement metric used by Netflix isn’t the same as the traditional television ratings metric — average audience. Adopted by FX, along with most cable and broadcast networks, the average audience is calculated by adding up every minute viewed of an episode (or season) and dividing it by the total duration of the program.

But that’s not the figure Netflix reported.

Lin-Manuel Miranda In Talks With Disney To Develop an Animated Film That Focuses on a Latina Princess

As you know, Disney is on a journey of bringing more diversity to their film projects. As far as animation goes, they’ve introduced an African-American princess with The Princess and the Frog and more recently introduced a Polynesian princess with Moana.

Now, it looks like they are looking to develop a new animated film that introduces a Latina princess and Lin-Manuel Miranda is in talks to develop it. Miranda most recently appeared in Mary Poppins Returns, but it was his popularity with the Broadway musical Hamilton that launched him into the spotlight.

The news comes from Page Six who says:

“He is talking to Disney about a sequel to ‘Moana,’ but the movie would be about a Latina princess.”

There’s no other information beyond that, but a film like this could end up being so many different things. With Miranda on board to develop the story and music,

Lin-Manuel Miranda to Create First Latina Disney Princess for Moana 2?
Could Lin-Manuel Miranda be gearing up to give the world its first Latina Disney Princess? While nothing has been confirmed, that could very well be the case. Miranda's star power has been on the rise ever since his play Hamilton went on to become one of the biggest things in the pop culture landscape and Hollywood was quick to scoop him up. Disney, in particular, has enjoyed working with Miranda and, if a new report is to be believed, they want him working on Moana 2 with a Latina lead character.

According to a new report, Disney has been talking with Lin-Manuel Miranda about just such a project. Miranda co-wrote the soundtrack to 2016's Moana and he recently starred in their hit sequel Mary Poppins Returns. His father, Luis Miranda, recently spoke in an interview and claimed that his son has been speaking with the studio about a sequel. Here's what

How Writer-Crew Collaborations Are Changing the Script for the Creative Process

How Writer-Crew Collaborations Are Changing the Script for the Creative Process
In traditional filmmaking, once a script is written, the director and department heads break it down and figure out the costs and logistics of production. But if the screenwriter collaborates during the creative process with key crew members, the entire production can benefit.

Such collaboration offers the prospect of help on many fronts. For example, rather than pore over details of period dress, a writer can talk to a costume designer, who can aid in the research. Or, if the script calls for a spaceship to land on an alien planet, the writer can confab with a production designer who’s well versed in extraterrestrial visuals.

One director who’s a big proponent of such teamwork is Steven Spielberg. Mark Scruton, who served as supervising art director on Spielberg’s “Ready Player One,” credits the director with communicating exactly what he wanted and instructing his key crew to thrash it out.

‘Bumblebee’ Buzzes Into China With $59M; ‘Aquaman’ Sets Course For $1B Worldwide – International Box Office

  • Deadline
Sunday Update, writethru: During a busy post-holiday holdover/expansion frame overseas, Warner BrosAquaman showed his muscle again, cruising well past the $900M mark globally as he charts a course for $1B. After holding the No. 1 spot at the international box office for four straight weekends, however (and as expected), he ceded the slot to Paramount’s Bumblebee which buzzed into China on Friday.

The yellow Bug grossed $82.7M in 63 markets this session, including China where it revved up with a No. 1 start of $59.4M at 9,180 locations. With $6.1M from 584 Middle Kingdom IMAX screens, Bumblebee logged the format’s 3rd best January start there ever.

Transformers movies are typically strong in China, although 2017’s The Last Knight didn’t catch fire the way Age Of Extinction had in 2014. Bumblebee is a different kind of Transformers and is connecting with local audiences giving it positive word of mouth. The Hailee Steinfeld

‘The Greatest Showman’ Soundtrack Was the Highest-Selling Album of 2018 by Far

‘The Greatest Showman’ Soundtrack Was the Highest-Selling Album of 2018 by Far
The Greatest Showman” was met by a so-so critical reception, but the P.T. Barnum biopic starring Hugh Jackman has taken on a life of its own. In addition to grossing $435 million and picking up Best Picture and Best Actor nods in the Golden Globes’ Musical or Comedy category, the film outsold every other album released by year — and it isn’t even close. Not only was it the only album to sell more than a million copies, but its 1.3 million sales more than doubled that of its closest competitor, the soundtrack to “A Star Is Born,” which sold 525,000 albums.

That figure comes with a caveat, however, as the Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga version of the musical and its accompanying Ost weren’t released until early October. Still, it’s notable that the two highest-selling albums of the year were both soundtracks, a development that suggests musical-obsessed moviegoers are more

‘Greatest Showman’ Rules the Soundtracks Chart for 2018… And All Album Sales, Period
In a music world where streaming services now overwhelmingly rule the market, who still actually bothers to buy albums? One obvious answer: people who also buy movie tickets.

BuzzAngle Music’s newly released data for 2018 shows that the two top selling albums of the year were the soundtracks for “The Greatest Showman” and “A Star Is Born.” By BuzzAngle’s calculations, which include an accumulation of individual track sales as well as pure album units, “Greatest Showman” was the sole million seller of the year, racking up 1.3 million in album sales. “A Star Is Born,” which was only released in time for fourth-quarter sales, came in second, with 525,000 albums.

The competition wasn’t even close in the album sales category. The year’s third biggest selling album, Justin Timberlake’s “Man of the Woods,” lagged far behind with 377,000.

That’s not to say that “Greatest Showman” and “A Star Is
