"Let's jump into the news today. Let's kick things off by talking about a piece of news that happened. A feud or i guess was announced a few days ago which is paramount has a new. Ceo jim gee annapolis was the ceo of paramount. He was running the company studio since twenty. Seventeen of this guy named brian robbins. Who was running. Nickelodeon will be coming in to replace him. Normally we don't really care about the sort of revolving doors of studio executives in hollywood. That's not really something that insider but this this particular bit of corporate reshuffling came with a a little piece of news that i found sort of interesting so basically under brian robbins the new. Ceo paramount is going to take a new direction in. The hollywood order says that quote insiders believe paramount will be back on its theatrical tent pole productions to focus on titles that will serve paramount plus and boris kittens reporter At the hollywood reporter said that according to those insiders his his quote here is that paramount is going to be a retreating from big theatrical productions to focus on titles remakes branded content cheaper fare. That will service paramount plus. So i just wanted to pose this question to you. Is that as bad as it sounds. Well it certainly sounds bad. It's huge news first of all that they're going to be scaling back from theatrical focus on paramount plus of all things which is still a fairly green streaming service is not nearly level of being a giant like netflix or even disney plus And i just i. It seems like a big gamble first of all even with you know studios and paramount losing big money at at the box office because of the pandemic The i guess this is something we've been talking about for the past year plus weather all these changes where these losses from the pandemic are gonna be permit or whether it's just accelerating what's you know already in the death of theaters death at the ethical and it seems like paramount seems to think this at least yeah i mean i guess it's an important distinction to know that they're not completely getting out of the theatrical business like they're just scaling back on their bigger stuff but still that means that You know less movies like a rival you know. I think that's a good example of something that we'd probably that was paramount movie The new direct that film. All of us love that movie. And that film i think is one of the best movies of the past several years. And that's the type of movie that probably wouldn't get the green light under this new paramount regime because it doesn't you know it costs a lot of money and it's not based on anything and while i mean technically it was based on a short story but or yeah short story within a book of short stories but not exactly a hop in ip there. So you know. I just think in an industry that has experienced such consolidation over the past few years. That's like one fewer one less place for potential filmmakers to come in and take their stuff in and try to sell it in and find a home for big the type of like big mainstream entertainment that we love. We love all types of movies. It's item but That's the kind of movies that i think a lot of our audience that i love that. A lot of our audience loves these big franchises in just like the big genre movies and stuff so yet for for a studio mate. One of the few remaining major studios to so blatantly say yet we're scaling back in servicing the streaming service Sort of prioritizing that above seemingly all else. it's a little bit of a bummer. I mean is there any silver lining that you can see here as she is. The is the fact that like. Maybe we Branded content doesn't automatically mean cheaper stuff. That just technically could mean Recognizable stuff so if if for example paramount was to say. Okay let's make a mission impossible tv show. What's pay tom. Cruise a ton of money. Let's get him to to star in mission impossible paramount plus show and if they did several of those types of things i mean what would you say that i would. I don't know it's hard for me to think of us overlending for this. Just because everything that you're saying is just the opposite of what i want from studios right now but i guess if i'm going to be optimistic about Not only could they possibly Double down on these kind of recognizable franchises like mission impossible in turn into something like tv series but perhaps we could see the return of the mid budget film. We've seen steven soderbergh doing great work over. Hbo max and He's he has frequently turned away from theatrical releases. Just because he's found that a lot of studios aren't willing to to bank him on these kind of mid budget films that he's been known for movies. That are you know a adults And aren't necessarily bombastic and big but they they have like a big enough cast that they require a bit of money So maybe maybe paramount will be also open to investing in these kind of mid budget films. investing in ottawa's who have been maybe shut out of the the theatrical experience. Because they aren't you know behind a franchise or because they aren't a big name. Yeah i think that's a really good potential silver lining here know. I'm thinking sort of broadly like we're talking about the pandemic and and you know i don't know i think i think the impact the full impact of the pandemic on people's willingness to go to theaters in the same numbers. That you to still. We don't know what the what the extent of that is yet. But in a world where everybody just sort of sits on the couch and clicks around on their streaming services. I wonder if news like this is bad for movies but good for entertainment like for from. It's bad for people like us who really care about movies but for most people who just sit on the couch and look for something fun to watch. I wonder if if that distinction between movies and streaming stuff is going to just continue to matter less and less and and maybe if if tom cruise mission impossible show for example Will joe six pack really care that it's not that it wasn't a movie that then got funneled into that service. Will that matter. You know so authority happening. Unfortunately and these are the same people who are cutting money from arts and other various things so you know they just expected the entertainment to come streaming into their services without actually having to pay for it. But that's a whole other thing durant avowed us all right so To avoid a rant here. Let's talk about christopher nolan and his next project. I don't think on the podcast that we have mentioned what christopher nolan's next movie is because it was just announced a few days ago and then Even more recently than that. That film has now found home so so she just maybe set up for the people who have not been following this closely. What is nolan's next project. And where's it gonna end up yes. Christopher nolan's next film will be another. We'll do are to set film but it will focus instead on jade robert oppenheimer's role in the development of the atom bomb during world. War two There's no huddle as of yet. But we've seen nolan in the world war two territory before his second to last film dunkirk Which is incredible by the way very underrated. All-time honestly one of my favorite no-one movies and if he if it ain't broke don't fix it because he's back where he's he's doing strongly even though he's not back with the studio that distributed dunkirk because of the well-known feud between criminal and one brothers. After warner brothers decision to release all this twenty twenty one films to both theaters in hbo max on dane date leases so. Let me to this new story. Christopher.

"So i think that like we're going to see a lot of shuffling of the deck like this but jim gee annapolis was like one of the one of the people who is sort of kind of still guarding the gates. Right key i noticed is been you. Were talking about it with amanda but like the top gun just moving top gun because they just want top gun to be a blockbuster and they wanna maintain the relationship with tom cruise and christopher macquarie and make sure that they're in that business going forward and so yeah i mean i think that that's probably not a great sign although i have a hard time believing. Brian's is going to be like tom. Here's how it's going to go mission. Impossible is going to be up on peacock or plus you know. It's hard to say right because brian robbins is big. Move of late has was not only green-lighting the patrol movie. But which i believe you guys discussed on the watch recently because andy is a huge patrol guy. Loves cop agenda and i. I think that the idea there with patrol was did good business in theaters but also was available to date on paramount. Plus and maybe that indicated that robbins had a better sense of kind of the the layout the top gun news and the mission impossible pushback news ultimately. I think john lewis going out indicates to me that that was very much about tom cruise. Not about jim. john opelousas future paramount. So we'll see what happens. Everything's still like these day and date like when's the last time there was a day and date on streaming movie that you feel like was the talk of the weekend you know what i mean like was it was it. The the snyder cut like i. I'm trying to remember when it was like man. It's friday everybody's gonna watch the same movie. It's a very good question. Maybe god's vs kong. I felt like so. We haven't really had it all summer. Right not really i mean i. I don't feel like black. Widow was really the talk of the town until scarlett johansson announced that she was suing disney. That's when it really became a flashpoint but there have been movies that have been just the ethical releases that have done really good business..
