Netflix and Theater Owners Go To The Mattresses Over Scorsese's Irishman
"Welcome to the frame and Stephen cliff us filling in for John horn Martin Scorsese's highly awaited mob boss drama the Irishman hits theaters today well you know what is the situation going on now for big business and the government they're trying to pull us down you might be demonstrating the failure to show appreciation seems the the Netflix film stars Robert deniro Al Pacino and Joe Pesci but seeing the three and a half hour long at beginning theater will take some effort Scorsese had hoped for a wide release but after negotiations stalled between Netflix and movie theater owners the film will only be seen in eight theaters in New York and Los Angeles before heading to the streaming service on November twenty seventh Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood and streaming and she has the backstory on how things fell apart hi Nicole hi how are you Steve good good Nicole good you first please explain what theater owners were hoping for in terms of the Irishman's release I mean I think with what theater owners were hoping for was that Netflix was going to get in line and follow the rules that the traditional studios have with the theater chains and you know that is asking a lot for a company that doesn't necessarily believe in a theatrical window that is a subscriber first company that wants to make their subscribers happy by bringing them their content as soon as possible so what they wanted them to do was agreed to a seventy two day release which means that not necessarily the movie would play in theaters for seventy two days but that there would be an exclusivity period for that long before they would put it on their streaming service and that's really asking a lot for a company like Netflix I mean what ideally what Netflix like to see I mean no theatrical release at all no I mean I think Netflix is coming around to the idea of some limited theatrical release some of their consumers want to go see their movies on the big screen in a Martin scorcese gangster movie seems to fall into that category but they don't spend a lot on marketing so what happens in the traditional studio model is you have to put your movie into theaters you have to spend you know thirty five million dollars at least on a wide release to get people attention so they will know it's in theaters to go see it and then if you have to wait these seventy two to ninety days that are required by the theater chains when it does hit the next window whether that's a streaming platform or pay TV or whatever it is often times studios have to pay again to market the movie so it's really a lot of money but it also there is a requirement for Oscars is you have to have a movie in a theater for a week to be eligible that is part of the rules well after the Irishman start streaming on Netflix on November twenty seventh will there be the option for theater chains to give it a more wider release and and show it in theaters then for for those of us who may want to have that cinematic experience Netflix will keep it in theaters once it opens on their service as long as the chains want to keep it in it's just a limited number of theater chains that will play the movie the big giants AMC regal Cinemark those are the guys who are refusing to play by Netflix's rules which are much more truncated release windows and they're accustomed to Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood and streaming with Irishman showing now at the Belasco in New York and the Egyptian here in Los Angeles before expanding to a handful of others what can you tell us about why those specific theaters were selected as far as the Belasco that's a Broadway theater that shows Broadway plays this is actually one of the first times that a movie is going to be debuting in that theater and it's kind of terrific in a sense that like it's a big palace in there it has a thousand seats in it it makes you feel like you're in this you know old timey kind of environment there's not a lot of single screens left in New York City so they're kind of recreating the old time Hollywood feel on that screen as for the Egyptian in Los Angeles that theater is currently owned by American Cinematheque it's a his work location but Netflix is actually in the process of trying to buy that theater it's an independent movie house they want to own it so that on week nights they can put their movies in and have a vents and do whatever they want and then on the weekends American Cinematheque would still program their films as they see fit and they're kind of retrospectives and the repertory theatre that they are well fear owners were trying to make the case to Netflix that you know if you truncate the theatrical release you're gonna lose out how much money are are are we talking about potentially well they use the departed as their example which was Scorsese's two thousand six movie and that made three hundred million dollars worldwide now the studio doesn't get all three hundred million dollars they split that evenly with the theaters and then when you add in marketing costs it goes lower than that as well but there's still a you know a significant profit that could be made it's a could be because it's also a three and a half hour movie so how many people are going to be rushing to the theater to see it I mean the film has received rapturous reviews critics are loving it so that interest to see I think is high but there's also the risk factor that's involved too and I think Netflix has been less interested in getting involved in that business because it is so risky and it's much safer to put it on your service and then a month from now tell everybody how many people and watched it right there were similar release negotiations last year over the theatrical run of another major Netflix project and that's all fine so quite owns Roma can you remind us how that agreement check out and how it may or may not have influenced how this deal over the Irishman was hammered out it was the same kind of situation where the big chains refused to play at the smaller ones the landmarks the Alamo they played the movie and for some of those theater chains the movie did really well for them and it stayed in theaters for a long time well as streaming giants become more powerful in the big budget feature film industry will movie theaters become secondary venues you know for special films well it depends on who you're talking to I mean at this moment in time Disney who is you know launching their service in two weeks is a huge proponent of the theatrical window probably most of the movies that you went and saw most of Americans when Sonya last year were Disney movies whether they came from Pixar or Lucasfilm or Marvel those are the movies that make a ton of money at the box office and they stay in theaters for a very long time so Disney is a big fan of the of the theatrical window now how that changes we'll see there also putting a lot of money behind their Disney plus service so that needs to work out really well for them as well and who knows if product will be shifting to the service and hopes to you know bolster their subscriber numbers a lot of the streamers are backed by a traditional studios so they're gonna have to figure that out as it may go forward Nicole Sperling is media reporter for The New York Times covering Hollywood hand streaming the call thanks is a is a pleasure thank you for your time I appreciate

Then Moore's he himself was removed in a military coup because even though freely-elected he was a member of the slowest group. The Muslim Brotherhood more see was arrested his group outlawed now. He's died and Egypt, which broke free of the dictator Mubarak is now locked in a repressive military regime led by general el-sisi. I was won- purse. Who had an idea who made it were. And someone heard someone heard everybody I was one person. The new musical. We live in Cairo at the American repertory theater tells how one person than another word of mouth ignited the twenty eleven uprising that deposed Mubarak, president Tulsi decided to step down as of Egypt and he has decided that the higher council of the armed forces will leads the nation. The play blend real news footage. Hear the sounds of cheering protesters Theriault square with musical re-creations here that state.

Two point. Oh, two of the characters are brothers. We learned two brothers created this musical. So we assume they must have been there in Egypt, as well. And I'm hearing are from boylston, Massachusetts, right? You had never been to Egypt prior to writing this one. We started it. We hadn't that's Daniel and Patrick Zura, who were students in twenty eleven when they saw picture, Patrick talk about the photograph that actually inspired all of this. Sure it's a photograph by at oh from the New York Times he took this really incredible photo about seven floors above the square of all. Of these students around a table, there two or three laptops.

It's, it's, it's so youthful and so dynamic, and, and they're all uploading testimonials and photos and videos in these things for the protests down seven floors below them. And so we saw this photo, and we're like, wow, this is I mean, there's a musicality to this, and there's a youthfulness to this. And that's I think what we were so drawn to when we started the show. I, I mean, I think that's what really drew us to the story is these, these young people about our age when we started. I was nineteen Patrick was twenty two. Not only how young they were. But, but what was at stake for them? I mean this was a thirty year dictatorship in had they not succeeded in toppling Mubarak. They could have been jailed, tortured or worse. Seeing them, talk with such verve and such bravery about what change they want to see in their country. I think was really inspiring in this the students give their reasons for. Dilution starting with a slain protester for say. Who's being faced the disc of blood on the meadow gurney his, jaw the cash that showed his gums and his teeth. I will never forget until the day.

"Welcome back to the Jesus and see music podcast before the break, we were talking about Jay z and beyond say, but Blake Shelton and Gwen Stafani and all the news running those couples moving on I said, we were talking about I tunes and Broadway. I tunes has made a rather surprising maybe announcement that they are expected to. Well, I guess they haven't made an announcement I should backtrack. Apple is expected to close itunes after eighteen years, which is crazy. First of all, I tunes, it's been around for eighteen years. I can't believe it's been that long already feels like not that long. But. They are expected to announce separate apps for music, TV and podcast, according to certain reports, so according to a report by Bloomberg, the tech company, apple will announce that three separate apps for music TV and podcasts will supersede I tunes as apple seeks to reposition itself as an entertainment service, rather than a hardware company, powered by products, such as the iphone, the move is expected to be part of the keynote address by the apple chief executive Tim cook at the company's worldwide developers conference in San Jose, California, which started today, and we'll focus on software updates and Apple's new approach to apps. I tunes was launched on January ninth two thousand one so. Yep. Eighteen years, and was it was then it was Steve Jobs than revolutionary platform for music storage, where users could rip their CDs into digital form. That is just hilarious sentence, right there. I haven't thought about ripping a CD in a very long time, but that's just how music is evolved. In two thousand and three the I tuned store, added the ability to buy tracks legally rather than using popular appear to fear file sharing sites such as Napster, and the attraction of Napster was not just that it was free. But more importantly, it gave people away to connect with pretty much any piece of music. The former Warner Music, vice president Paul that it told Rolling Stone in two thousand thirteen what St. was doing with itunes was to replicate that type of experience of vast catalog available on a singles basis with a convenient interface. It had to be easier than Napster. So, of course, things evolve music, music, listening music, streaming music, all of those good things have evolved and now I tunes and its use of downloads has become a bit old fashioned companies, including Spotify have introduced successful streaming models, as music's most radically democratic era began that is a quote Spotify was launched in two thousand eight and offered unlimited ad free access to its catalog of music for a fee. It's now nine ninety nine a month for its premium service. The company says it has two hundred and seventeen million users worldwide with one hundred million paid subscribers to the service in comparison, apple music, has approximately fifty six million paid subscribers world wide. So now, they are they are reimagining the way, they are going to do things in Italy interesting to see what this announcement, actually says, right now it's a bit of speculation, but they are expected to make the announcement soon. So, again, it'll be interesting to see and I will keep you updated as I hear more about it moving on from I tunes as I said, we would talk a little bit about Broadway. And that is that Alanis Morissette is bringing jagged little pill to Broadway, which is interesting. I, I love J little pill that was kind of might Yay. Era when I was in college again dating myself. But that's okay. So the, this article says that Lantis Morissette didn't want her landmark album, jagged little pill to become a bio musical. So when producers approached her eight years ago about bringing the music to the stage she had some requests, she was quoted as saying, I was flattered in my initial thought was, is it going to have to be my story because that's terrifying. Maybe one day, I'll have the audacity to share it in another form. The last thing I wanted to do to be transparent was any kind of a jukebox musical or anything that felt compartmentalized or separate, so the cast and creative team gathered at has wills green in midtown Tuesday night to share songs from the show and talk about the John RAs of the production, the Genesis of the production, excuse me. The musical premiered, at American repertory theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts last summer and is scheduled to start performances on Broadway. In november. A RT artistic director and Tony winner, Dianne Paulus stages. The new musical, which has a book by Diablo Cody a two thousand eight Oscar winner for her. Original screenplay Juno policy says everyone came to the project like a calling as the album has been formative for so many. It's produced by Glen Ballard, who co wrote most of the songs with Morissette the nineteen ninety five maverick released topped the charts in thirteen countries spawning a string of hit singles and notching up sales of over thirty three million copies. And this is just taking me right back to college. There was a lot of kind of angry feminist anthems and music out in that point. Definitely shaped my college years have a little bit of nostalgia here, but the show takes these songs and weaves them through a timely female driven story about characters dealing with issues ranging from. Addiction and gender identity through sexual assault. The songs take on new life on stage, yet retain their inherent drama. You ought to know is still an anthem break-up song. And all I really want becomes an opening. I want song for a family struggling to communicate. Paul's is quoted as saying, I have learned more from Atlantis and the thoughts, she's given me and the books she sold me. She's told me to read about understanding, which is the key to this musical. She continues, we cannot heal everything that we are hurting about if we're alone. Everything is done in relationship to other people, and that is fundamental to what she's given us. Cody crafted a story by zeroing, in on characters that already existed in the album. She started with the central figure of Mary, Jane from Morissette's song of the same name in the musical. Mary Jane is I mother struggling with addiction and mental health distancing herself from her marriage, and children, Cody explains that song tells you everything you need to know about that woman. So I was able to build it out from there. I just feel very fortunate to have this incredible theatrically rich beautiful source material to work from. It's not a typical jukebox musical situation where you're thinking, how can I shoo horn this hit into the story? She also says, I come from a world where re-shoots are constantly are costly and shameful. Well policy lake in making theater to reshoot thing every day. I find this definitely an interesting kind of thing that Morissette is quoted as saying, God is in the details and her focus in rehearsals. On the subtleties in the story, polish recall, the time when the singer came to rehearsals and gave notes on a senior. Mary, Jane is waiting in line at the pharmacy. Morissette felt the actors playing the people waiting in line weren't a pathetic enough to the issues. Mary Jane was facing. She says Morissette says the more overt expression is slam dunked and to know that every layer has deep profound care for it coming from all of us is pretty awesome. I am intrigued jagged little pill, previews November third, at the Broadhurst theatre in New York ahead of an official opening on December fifth. This album was huge part of my life. It's still on my playlist, say and I still belt out songs when they come on. So if I have a chance to see this. I'm definitely going to I find it interesting when. Musicals are made out of albums, like this, and I, I'm intrigued for the story because you know, as they say it's not just your, your typically, it typical kind of jukebox musical where they take an album and kind of try to shove everything into. They try to make it make sense. And that's, that's sometimes more successful than other times. But I am interested to see how this goes, and as a fan very very, very intrigued. So I do see that it is time to take our second break of the podcast. When we come back, we have a few more stories of news from the music world. Stay tuned. You're listening to the GS MC music podcast. And I'll be right back. Tropical one knows life doesn't alert.

I found that you know, moving, but like even knowing that the war was unwinnable and disaster and and him based on and yes, he Hannity you still.

And they wanna leave the country though. It's it's heavy. It's a very heavy thing. And and back in those days it dominated everybody's men and women, you know, women who felt the terrible guilt of their boyfriends. I've had that conversation with women my age about who their boyfriends who bailed day who bailed or didn't bail. I was in London. With a lot of American guys. We're just basically self exiled.

Ironically, I I was hired to direct. Yeah. It was well on my way to being a director, not an actor. Yeah. In fact, Baltimore center stage even offered me job as a associate artistic director.

"Some of the opening music from the opera crossing the by the composer, conductor and writer Matthew Aucoin who joins me here in our new sound studio. Matt welcome to the program. Good to be here. I was really impressed with the American repertory theater. Production of of this opera. What was your initial attraction to setting Whitman texts to music, I was attracted to Whitman as spirit, and as a presence to be honest. I wasn't attracted to the idea of setting his poetry, in fact. Was frightened by that idea because the poetry has so much music in it already. The lines are so long. You look at it on the page. It's like this cascading waterfall that actually to set a single line might take longer than a human breath. So once the RT folks, and I started talking about the opera, and that was my senior year of college in two thousand twelve we decided we're going to do it. I had to go off and give it a try setting Whitman to music to make sure that it was possible. And evidently, it was in some cases. So what is the story of just give us without too, many spoilers? What is the story of crossing crossing is a Fantasia on Whitman's experiences as a volunteer nurse during the civil war, and it's an examination of Whitman's motives and has psychological makeup. And also, it's kind of an interrogation know, maybe his motives aren't quite as pure as he thought they were maybe he's actually running away from something. So he ends up actually falling in love in the hospital and discovering some things about himself that he didn't know, and of course, because of the backdrop of what was happening in that in our country at the time, certainly the war is the looming invisible presence, right? And he falls in love with a guy named warmly. Who may or may not be what he seems to be when we first. Meet him. So there's you know, there's a kind of interrogation of a couple of characters that occurs during the course of this opera, the idea of setting Whitman and specially the Whitman of the civil war to music John Adams did this many years ago with the wound dresser? And there are many moments during the course of this opera crossing where I was kind of reminded of John Adams. Possibly because of the distinctly Skips upbeat. American style Hand of English that spinning. Whitman used that is so essential Fame. to John Adams operas as that you seem to bring to the table this. Well, it's funny That's from act after one crossing of the John Adams opened opera, a couple Nixon of years ago, I in China, cracked open and it very John Adams's quickly autobiography established John Adams Holliday as a composer junction to and be was reckoned. With in totally the field of stunned opera. to see that. Actually, he Let's considered move on to writing his an next opera about major women opera in the war the death of Klinghoffer in the eighties around the time and one or of the ninety the choruses. s when he This was writing is the desert chorus wound dresser. with Kent Nagano conducting the And opera certainly orchestra of Leon. John's music has made its impact felt on on on every every composer of my generation in one way or another, and I've been lucky enough to to get to know him as well as Peter Sellars, I'm conducting doctor atomic next summer at the Santa Fe opera. And so it's it's been great to to to witness their generosity of spirit in person as well, as you know on the on the page. I do think that John Adams is unapologetic about the American -ness of our English. And I think that's totally essential because it's gnarly. It's it's not like talion where the vowels essentially never change. You have a fixed set of rather pure vowels and always know what awards going to sound like from looking at it. Our language is is tough. And it's sticky and it's weird. And not. But I I wanted to run with that a little bit. Janacek does this with the Czech language where he uses the the grittiness of the language as a kind of armor or or or weapons I dunno. It becomes part of his arsenal of musical expression. And I wanna use the weirdness of the English language to to make the peace stronger. I'm glad you mentioned Janacek. I want to come back to him in a moment. But first I want to play an excerpt from the opera it takes place within this field hospital essentially and in this segment called sleepers. There's not for the only time in the opera a kind of a hint of the famous him to the evening star from Wagner. Tonhauser? I don't know if that was playing in your mind's ear unintentional, but probably it's there. I well this recording feature is the academy festival orchestra. This is from the music academy of the west with my guest, Matthew coin conducting it's from the opera Colt crossing..
