Johnson & Johnson Says Data Show COVID-19 Vaccine Appears Safe
"In 19 vaccine may be available to Americans as soon as next month. The vaccine is made by Johansson Pharmaceuticals Company, a division of Johnson and Johnson. Today, the company published interim data showing that the vaccine appears to be safe and that it elicits the kind of immune response that should protect someone Cove. It As NPR's Joe Palka reports evidence that the vaccine actually does prevent illness is expected later this month. The preliminary results come from two studies of about 400 participants each One involved people aged 18 to 55, the other older than 65. Some subjects got a single dose of the vaccine. Some got to some got a high dose. Some aloe does. Although the participants were roughly evenly split between men and women, nearly all the participants were white. As they report in the New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers found that most adverse reactions to the vaccine were mild and dissipated. Within 24 hours. One participant had a high fever, but it only lasted 12 hours. Younger subjects tended to have more negative reactions to the vaccine. That older ones. Laboratory results showed that most subjects had the kind of immune response that should protect them from disease. 29 days after the first shot, and virtually all showed that response after 57 days But these air just laboratory studies months have slowly with the government's operation warp speed. He said in a press teleconference yesterday that the results from a study involving 45,000 volunteers will be needed to show whether the vaccine actually protects people from disease. That study completed enrollment in mid December. We are very clear that analysis will be completed before the end of the month, the month of January. So, he said. If that analysis shows the vaccine is working as hoped, the Food and Drug Administration could issue an emergency use authorization for the vaccine as soon as February. In its initial projections, Johansson plan to have 12 million doses by the end of February. That's how he said based on the latest estimates he was only expecting doses numbering in the single digit of millions were trying to make that number get as close to a double digit number as possible. And then a larger number in March and a much larger number in April. The good news is theon send vaccine should be rolled out as a single dose vaccine so people won't need to go back for a booster shot as they do with the Moderna and Fizer by on tech vaccines.

"Hi everybody I am Peter Travers and welcome to this special edition of Popcorn where creed you all the movies opening between Labor Day and New Year's Eve I know wait what aren't we in a pandemic Will really be moved this fall and theaters to show them in I mean the answer to both those questions is a huge. Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down. So let's start with the blockbusters that are out there. Number one is tenant. Brain Teasing epoch from Dark Knight Director. Christopher. Nolan. That's geared to fire up the fall season and in theaters and with your mask and distancing in place you can strap in for this kind of Christopher Nolan throw ride and watch the spy master he's played by John David Washington give James Bond a run for his money you know you just have to. Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped. Jaw dropped pulses. Oh, pound all that good stuff movies and back baby. So what else do we have? We have Moulin which is out there right now and you'll check in Disney plus to watch this because it's not in theaters but you can rent it and you could see live action film of the Disney animated hit about a young woman who disguises. Herself as a man to replace her sick father in the Imperial Army the new moon is not musical and there's no comic relief from eating Murphy as the Voice of a fast talking dragon named Moo Shu. This is not that kind of movie. There's no whitewashing but using Western actors in the drawn from Chinese legend and as Rouland the astounding Lou ye. Leads in Asian cast that includes martial arts icon jet. Li is the emperor up and China's leading actress Gong Li as shape shifting witch who teaches on how to survive and prosper in a man's world. Look move on is not your typical princess. She's a warrior fighting for her place in the world prepare to be well. Next up wonder woman one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, the sequel to the two thousand seventeen smash that made a star of Gal. Gadot, remember her places the DC comics immortal wonder woman into the cold. War where she does battle with the media tycoon played by Pedro Pascal and the villainous Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig always to me an asset in any movie Chris. Pine also returns Steve Trevor The American. Pilot that one woman loves I know didn't he die the last time during World War? One people you gotta go with this this is Hollywood. So if we can borrow wonder woman's last sube truth for a moment, credibility isn't the issue here. It's the show stopping stunts engineered by returning director Petty Jenkins executed by Godot, and she's a formal Israeli military structure. So you know you're in for a really good time. Next up is black widow look wonder woman has competition already. You know we've been waiting since spring for Marvel to let its first solo black widow epic out of storage and into theaters. Now, the wait is over Scarlett. Johansson is back in action as Natasha Romanoff Aka black widow.

It's not just one black widow you can become a black widow tells witness business. So Watch your back wonder woman next up candyman there's nothing like the Primo horror. Film to get us all back in the dark of a theater where we can scream bloody hearts out behind a mask of course, end with get outs Jordan peele writing the screenplay. This direct sequel to nineteen ninety two's cult fright fest stars Watchmen Emmy nominee Jadu Martine the second as a visual artist drawn back to those housing projects in Chicago's Cabrini-green where he was born now the whole place is gentrified beyond recognition but the green is still haunted by Candyman Tony Todd an urban legend who still kills anyone who summoned him by saying his name five times. Okay. Altogether now with me candyman candyman candyman candyman candyman, we did it. So I'm looking around here to see if some him up. Okay next up no time to die look no red blooded movie Fan is GonNa Think of missing Daniel. Craig's fifth and final outing James Bond you know for my money Craig and Sean Connery are in dead heat for the best bond ever. This one directed by Kerry from Gonzaga who did true detective from Script Co written get this by sleeping bags phoebe Wall Rich Daniel Craig asks for her because he really wants a little feminist touch to this.

Netflix is Hollywood
"Where are we? We are in Los Angeles. We're about to turn onto sunset. Boulevard Hollywood maybe in Hollywood. Okay, so we're. We're approaching. Hollywood hills. Really Tall Palm Trees. So should we explain why we're? We're driving through sunset radio. There's a bunch of billboards here, right? That's what we're. Getting at. Less Ronnie our producers, etc piled, a newborn, took a drive down Hollywood's main drag. It's a traffic jam packed with billboards promoting new TV shows and movies. I've been covering the business of media for a long time, so I served as tour guide for this trip, but Ronnie is a data reporter who mainly writes about tech companies. She doesn't typically pay a lot of attention to what's going on in Hollywood. Here, we have a a the crown net flicks up on the right. Have you watched any of the crown yet? I have not. On the left we have marriage story billboard. This is a Scarlett Johansson. I don't think I want to watch that. You may not be the right person for streaming roddy in a row. We got the Irishman. That's Scorsese's film and then DOLEMITE is my name. Reading that right. Alfie, these are both movies. They're both movies. You can see on Netflix Sega. Any of these this is this is a worthwhile trip for learning. What's on Netflix? You could just actually go to your browser. Are these like already outer. These are like I don't know. Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on. TV, it's a way to watch Hollywood talking to itself, these billboards are messages which are very much directed at Hollywood except now. netflix's doing most of the talking. Stranger things net flix. The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix. Even though that time was just a few years ago. If you didn't know any better, you'd think. Netflix's has always been a huge part of Hollywood. Syphilis can be fatal to your baby free. Check that out not flick show. UNCLEAR UNCLEAR? Welcome the land of the giants. The NETFLIX's effect. I'm Peter Coffee. Today. We're talking about how NETFLIX's. Would outsider that no one took seriously took over the town and change the lives of the people in it. Are the CO founder and CEO of Net flicks. I'm going to conduct this interview netflix style. I'M GONNA. Have like five questions you're GonNa love and five thousand. You've never heard. Today. It's given it. NETFLIX's remade. The media. World to companies becomes so omnipresent in our lives that CEO Reed. Hastings even counts as a sort of celebrity. He's a big enough deal for a guest spot Stephen Colbert. You're like one of the big one of those big new media disruptors. Why did the entertainment industry need to be disrupted? Just for the fun of it. On this happened really quickly. We talked to Kim Masters veteran show business journalist at the Hollywood reporter who said that a decade ago Netflix's was an afterthought for big media companies newcomers from Silicon Valley or anywhere else did not strike fear in the hearts of moguls. There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel. Let netflix's stream always rate movies from Sony and Disney so stars had created the service called Vong which nobody listening to this podcast is GonNa Remember, but there was a service before Netflix's. That was streaming. Streaming movies called. Longo Van Gogh was losing seventy million dollars a year. Rich Greenfield is an analyst with light shed partners. He's been following digital media closely for years, and in walks, Reed Hastings in Ted Sandoz and says hey will take that streaming content. You could sub-licensed to us and we'll pay you. Tens of millions of dollars Netflix's use it as the base to build their streaming service, versus what was historically just a DVD service. And the rest is they say is history.
Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
'Parasite' winning best picture would make movies richer
"So the nine best picture nominees are of Ford. Vive Ferrari affordably. Ferrari is Christian Bale and Matt Damon in the story of Ford trying to build a car to beat Ferrari in the lemond race The Irishman when is the Martin Scorsese Film. which is on Netflix? That you might have heard. It's three hours long. Gioja Rabbit is TYCO I. T's story about a World War Two to that is the one with the where he plays a an imaginary Hitler. If you've heard a joker of course Joaquin Phoenix as the comic book character. Sort of little women which is little women you know Little Women Louisa May alcott and book adapted by Greta. GERWIG marriage story which is Noah Baumbach. Big divorce film with Adam driver and also Scarlett Johansson nineteen seventeen which is about two young men in World War One cent. On a very dangerous mission started by Sam Mendez once upon a time in Hollywood Hollywood. Is Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's story about the Hollywood of the very late nineteen sixties and parasite which is Bongino Jin. Ho's Really Fascinating story about two families who come together in a very unexpected way Glenn Gimme a quick will win. Should win on best picture. I'd be happiest with parasite movie that just gets better and better. The more you think about it I'd be okay with little women or once upon a time like movies I'd be a little disappointed if it was Ford versus Ferrari for reasons you can hear more about in the full episode and if it is the joker I'll scream into a pillow Because I kinda hated that movie the oddsmakers have nineteen seventeen winning which is surprising to me. Because I like that movie but the best picture of the year really. It's Oscars sensitive from war movie and it's kind of a traditional Hollywood movie in some ways but then at the same time. It has the kind of showy element of having the you know. Made to look like one shot. I I will just go next and say I would pick parasite and you know. I'm going to stick with will win parasite because the last time. I had a tingling feeling that it was going to being upset. It was moonlight backed off at the last minute. So did the telecom. I robbed myself of an opportunity to look smarter than I am. So I'm going to say will win. Parasites should win parasite. I'm okay with nineteen seventeen. I think there is some lovely filmmaking there. I admire fire the accomplishment of it Bob. What do you think will win and should win? I think one thousand nine hundred will win because it's just everything seems to be driving that way it didn't start out that way. What's interesting sting is at the front runners? Initially were supposed to be Once upon a time in Hollywood and the two from from net flicks Irish marriage. I'm sorry Mayor Story and those have kind of disappeared from the conversation. I think it's safe to say none of those have a real strong shot anymore. I would love to see parasite win. Yeah Stephen Anything. I'm in somewhat of the same boat. I would be thrilled of parasite one I would be thrilled if a little women one. I love that movie so so much. I went on record in our resolutions and predictions show. I predicted addicted. That once upon a time in Hollywood was going to win best picture. It seemed like everything was coming together for The Oscars love movies about the magic of movie. Making it is is a movie about old Hollywood. You know who else is old Hollywood. Everyone who votes for the and so I felt so much like and also Quentin Tarantino. Not No he is an Oscars favourite but he typically get's nudged over two screenplay and then doesn't win best picture best director so I really felt like he had an enormous amount of momentum going going in but I agree that nine hundred seventeen seems to have kind of swooped in and picked it up and I. I really liked that movie a lot. I admire that movie a lot. I would be perfectly content content and satisfied to have it win best picture but this time next year it will take me thirty to forty five seconds to remember what won best picture unless it's parasite unless it's it's parasites will be talking about it for decades. Well I think I wrote about this a little bit if you subscribe to our newsletter which is at NPR dot org slash pop culture newsletter. I wrote about this last week but I do think there's a chance that will be parasite partly because the opening up of the best picture category. which originally was talked about as a way to bring? In kind of popular blockbusters that are also of quality. Got A lot of talk about the dark knight and things like that but it's actually done is bring in more smaller films and foreign right language films so eventually it's GonNa Happen. That one of them is GonNa win. Might as well be this one. I think it might be this year. I think people just like that movie. Yeah and the fact that the US preferential voting for this cat this particular story. COMP look it's way too complicated to get into here but basically what it means is if people liked parasite recite for example enough to what it number one number two or number three. It's got a better than average chance or second. Choices have a have a better than average less polarizing films. Do you better than the ones that everybody likes. Even if it's not their favorite

Faith and Parenting in 2020: Intimacy and Marriage
"Wants US train up our children in his way of life you know impress on them. Your children talk to them as you sit at home when you walk along the road when you lie down when you get up we read this in Deuteronomy read this throughout Biblical truth one. One of the most important areas to talk to our kids about lance is sex. Sex is a way of expressing love between husband and wife. This is made plain in Paul's pissing Fijian's as we read and five husbands love. Your Wives Justice Christ also loved the Church and gave himself for her that he should that she should should be holy and without blemish so husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. For this reason it man shall leave his father and mother and joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh and in the Timothy. We read young leader of the Church. As Paul's talking to Timothy he says to Timothy Flea we also youthful lust instead pursue righteousness. Faith love peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart we find and that in the second Timothy and escaping thing that we read about you know we've been talking about born in the last couple of podcast half of the. US adults lands fifty percent agree. Strongly that quote choosing not only the have sex outside of marriage is healthy unquote but generational differences are significant. Embargoes out in say a six. Ten elders older generation fifty nine percent of them agree strongly with his statement. Compared to fifty three percent of baby boomers forty nine nine percent of Gen xers and forty. Three percent millennials that it doesn't necessarily have to be between you know a husband and the wife. And so. Who is we get into this you know lance hot? What say you on? Why is it? So important to differentiate with our kids the idea of sex intimacy in a godly basis versus. What cultures telling us you know? I think it's this one of those topics where we don't would. We don't always want to talk about it but honestly our children are going to learn They'RE GONNA learn from us. What sex what marriage? What intimacy looks like and and I think honestly our marriage starts as one of the biggest examples of that not not to toot my own horn or anything but you know my my wife life and I constantly get comments about us? You know from friends and things like that that we have this sense of love and intimacy that you don't see in a lot of marriages is and even our kids realize that That there is this sense of of love and intimacy between Me and my wife I'm I'm glad that we were able to model that To our children and I think as as parents really important part because Believe me if we don't come in and we don't teach model to our kids The the biblical purpose enroll of sex the cultures gonNA come in and tell them it's something else Known Donte you're talking about right now and we saw some of the statistics from last week's podcast and some of the stuff barnes doing but many in our culture right now they see sex. It's a fundamental human rights. And it's just a bodily function society's kind of devalued what it's what what is meant to be shared between one man and one woman and God's Holy Marriage Covenant Covenant and our our culture kind of teaches now that that sex is not a big deal as long as it's two consenting adults involved. We saw the research on that last week. Where people agreed to that that is as long as two consenting adults WANNA have sex whether they're married not married in a marriage not married whatever? Go ahead and do it And the The other Stark factor Dante in. We were talking about this. In Barnard's researchers actually comes from the book. Good faith and this really stood out to me that The the way that we've devalued sex is a culture and the easy access everyone has to pornography right now. It cheapens sex and takes away from the deep intimacy. God intended to to be shared between a husband and wife and what they talked about in the book and in some of the Barna Research. Is that the issue that this has and I know you know. I've seen a lot of younger. People can probably relate to this. They just don't realize cicadas but this casual approach to sex's creating negative relationship hurting side effects And instead of Intimacy and emotional depth depth. Sex Any way you want. It is leading leading to more anxiety more depression more loneliness and more insecurity and for some we see the sexes. No longer even worth the trouble. You've got people now who I can. Just I don't have to go after sex. I can stay home and use pornography or you know. There's this thing in its. I hate to get into this Dante. What is GonNa if you haven't heard of this coming up? There's a sink called hookups. Where young people say? I don't want I want my sexual needs met. I want I want. I want to be sexually gratified but I don't necessarily want the emotional baggage the The amount of time and effort to put into a a healthy relationship. So I'd rather just jump into bed with somebody for a one night. Stand get my sexual needs met and then I can move on with my life And this this you know when you couple couple this with the prevalence in the access to pornography on demand this is really. It's it's having a cost on relationships it's having a cost on intimacy and ultimately want someday in when we get married it's GonNa have a cost As as what we bring into the marriage One one of the start. You know things. I think that They pointed out in the barn. Research was an I don't I I can't verify this so you can call me on this but playboy magazine in the you know Hugh Hefner the guy that kind of started the whole pornography or naked women in magazines business stopped. They actually don't Publish that in their magazine anymore. Because they said There's such a high prevalence. Everybody has access to porn that they've stopped even publishing publishing that type of stuff. And all this you know not going on rabbit hole here. But all of this is because these cultural The cultural beliefs the way our culture is going. It's ultimately it has consequences in these consequences is being seen within the intimacy in once. Finally people are getting married. They're getting into what we would call a A godly marriage. They're bringing some of this baggage and some of this emotional damage from years of Of of not not being biblical might be moral into marriage and it's causing issues in the marriage. And that was one of the scariest things to me Dante. As we talk about giving into self I give into my sexual gratifications gratifications I given to. What's desirable pleasurable right now? There's going to be long term consequences for that. Does that make sense you. Yeah my wife and I do marriage mentoring at our church. We do marriage mentoring in relationships that we pour into and I you know honestly I can tell you. Personal experience is buying into into the lie of sex before marriage doing it my way versus God's way there there is a lot of psychological and also physical damage image. That are a result of that enemy from you know people that just did not want to wait for marriage to God help us. You know of of kids getting abused or or an incident that somebody had the rights taken away or they were molested or they were attacked. You know in college or something like that and these are things that you know we sit there and we cheapen cheapen wait and we wonder like you even suggest pornography like I don't even need to go into the statistics I mean you can go out there and you can look at the most you know. a cultural statistics and or or Biblical statistics. But you know whether you're looking at mainstream or whether you're looking at you know religious background the all of the studies affirm absolutely that you know pornography is a into intimacy destroyer and and so there's a I think even a mainstream movie that Scarlett Johansson is in an effort the gentleman but just the the facts of how bad pornography destroys intimacy and. That's you know we're sitting there saying we'll okay but where do you. Where do you stop in like for you? The Listener. Listen if you're sitting there saying well you know I'm in a loveless or a lack of physical relationship right now with marriage so pornography is my justification. You can't justify that as a Christian and the let alone if you're sitting there telling me that I don't have intimacy anymore my relationship but then you're sitting there telling Lanson that you're justifying pornography pornography. The reason you don't have intimacy in your relationship is because that graffiti has stolen intimacy from your relationship and to have these AH honest questions okay. So what we permit we promote what we promote we permit and trying to have the influence of the spirit of those around us now all of a sudden therefore sitting there saying that's okay to our kids got help us that we're doing that to our daughters. Were doing that to our sons. You know I can tell you one friend whose mom was. It was very liberal about these is still having relationship issues. And he's in his fifties right now of trust of intimacy and all that and it's just because of these things that we don't look about long term consequences to living our way versus God's way and so you know like you said Lance I got way off into a rabbit hole but pulling it back you know. There's a way that God wants to live to pursue intimacy to pursue sexual relations and that's in a covenant marriage between one man one woman and that's not only biblical but that is so true and so many ways
Screen Actors Guild Reveals Award Nominees
"Welcome to the frame Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn our broadcast was preempted today for special coverage of the presidential impeachment proceedings. But we bring you this special podcast addition to talk about the screen actors Guild Award nominations which were announced today and what better person to call on John Horn. WHO's on assignment assignment in New York? Hey John Hey Steven how are you. Okay so let's start with the nominees for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role. What do we got so the nominees? He's were Christian. Bale from Ford versus Ferrari Leonardo di Caprio for once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver from marriage story Joaquin Phoenix from joker car. And then probably the surprise in the category is turned Edgerton. Who Played Elton John and rocket man? If you start looking at who isn't in I think. Probably the most was notable exclusion as Robert Deniro for his lead role in the Irishman. He is getting a lifetime. Achievement Award Screen Actors Guild Award. So maybe that was part of the math but Jonathan Pryce was not nominated from two popes. Adam Sandler was not nominated from uncut gems and also left out of the competition was Antonio Banderas for pain and glory. Yeah it was a little surprised to see Bandera slept out you and I talked about that film and I think we agree that it was kind of career. Defining performance Let's move on to the lead actress. Category Who have their we have Cynthia Areso from? Harriet Scarlett Johansson from marriage story. The neon go from us. Charlie's therein Erin from bombshell and Renee Zellweger from Judy not a lot of surprises there. There were two women of color. The surprise I guess was that that search or Ronin was not nominated for little women some people thought Aquafina might have gotten in from the farewell. In fact little women did really badly today in the screen actors Guild L. Dominations and how about supporting role in the mail categories some pretty juicy performances. There are some really good pegues. Jamie Fox was nominated for Justice mercy. Tom Hanks Sup- Played Fred. Rogers and a Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. A couple of actors from the Irishman Al Pacino. And Joe Patchy and then Brad Pitt from once upon a time in Hollywood I said earlier. Jonathan Pryce was not nominated for playing Pope Francis in the two popes. Anthony Hopkins was not nominated for playing Pope Benedict in the two popes as well and this is also one of those weird categories in terms of. WHO's supporting and WHO's lead? It's one of those things where the studios can kind of say to the screen actors guild and the academy and other words as we think. This person is a lead this person's supporting I mean. They're two popes are mostly onscreen for the the same time. And you have Brad Pitt. Who is up for supporting actor? Leonardo DiCaprio for lead actor and once upon a time in Hollywood. I think he put a stop. Watch on it Leo. Joe Might have like twenty seconds or screen time. I don't know it feels like that's kind of tricky. Math and Tom Hanks's probably star of a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Even though he shares there's Screen time with another character again. The studios got to decide of the actors. Don't vote somebody in that category than they don't get nominated yes. Some people might be especially puzzled by the Tom. Hanks category for him winding up in the supporting actor. Can you explain that a little bit like why why that is well. I think if you look at that that film you can say that even though. It's a movie about Fred Rogers. It's really about the journalist whose life is transformed by meeting with Fred Rogers and something similar happened. In the supporting actress. Category according to Variety Kathy Bates is in this film by Clint Eastwood. Call Richard Jewel rule and she's been getting some awards attention in the supporting actress. Category but according to Variety Warner brothers mistakenly submitted fitted her as a lead actress for the screen actors Guild Awards and she didn't get nominated and she didn't get nominated for supporting actress because they had submitted committed error in probably the wrong category. Well who else do we have in the category of supporting actress. Another pretty strong category. Laura dern from marriage stories Scarlett Johansson another nomination for Joe Joe Rabbit this time and then to actors from bombshell Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie and finally Jennifer Lopez from Hustler's right. We have so we have Scarlett Johansson nominated for both lead and supporting actress rare A little bit but you know pretty. Good Year for Scarlett Johansson. I don't think you can fault any of those performances. I think they were both really strong. And you know she's playing opposite. Visit Adam driver. Who was nominated for marriage story? Joe Joe Rabbit as we're GONNA say in just a second got a little bit more attention as well so both nominations. I'd say we're served in both. Were in really good films. Let's finish up with the outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. Is it true that this winter is often a predictor for the Academy Award Best Picture winner in historically. Yes that has been true but if you look at the last two best picture winner shape of water and green book they weren't even even nominated for the Sag Ensemble Award so yes. It is a good thing to be nominated for in terms of Academy Awards because it's important to note the actress. Branch ranch is the biggest branch in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. So what the actors do in the screen actors. Guild awards is often a good harbinger of what the Oscar Asker voters might do. So the nominees for on Samba were bombshell. Which I think is a little bit of a surprise? Good news for that film. The Irishman Joe Joe Rabbit once upon a time time in Hollywood and the real surprise in this category was parasite which is a Korean film. It's only the second foreign language film in Sag History. The other one one was life is beautiful to get a nomination for the ensemble award. I think it's really important for parasite. I think it's interesting. THAT MARRIAGE BRIDGE STORY WASN'T NOMINATED FOR ENSEMBLE. Neither was little women and so all the power seemed to be going to parasite right now and I would have to say say once upon a time in Hollywood and the Irishman well there you have it this year's screen actors Guild Award nominations in the film category. John you may resume get your New York theatre going. Thank you Steve. And I'll go do it right now
Natasha Romanoff gets the origin story she deserves in Black Widow trailer
"This time will move who move back to the Marvel Marvel universe because so many things happened in the marvel universe. You know it's just constant news coming out of there and this is that there is a first trailer for black widow. The Solo Film. I saw on facebook today. One of my friends posted a reference to this and I think his comment was about damn time so at least one person who is excited for this. Let's see so Natasha. Romanoff off black widow is getting her own. Solo movie. Black widow is set after the events of captain. America's civil war just to put it in the timeline for for marvel movies stories etc.. It's a time when all where all the vendors had to do some self reflection on what being a superhero really meant meant and one that put a Natasha Romanoff into a crisis of self reflection as Scarlett Johansson explained in an interview with Vanity Fair. Are we just wrapped black widow like two weeks ago or something like that. So it's very fresh in my mind and I don't have the total perspective on it yet. It's a film film about self forgiveness and it's a film about family. I think in life we sort of come of age many times. And you have these kind of moments where you're in a transitional phase and then you move sort of beyond it and I think in the black widow standalone film. I think the character is at when we find her a moment of real crisis and throughout the film by facing herself a lot of ways and a lot of things that make her her she actually kind of comes through that crisis on the other side and we start to be able to reset set where she's a more grounded self possessed person so that's her journey. Well I hope anyway again. That was a quote from a Scarlett Johansson in an interview with Vanity Fair hints of that journey are seen in the trailer on Natasha Tells Yelena below who is played by Flori- pugh. We have unfinished business. We have to go back to where it all started and for black widow part of going back to back as putting together a team that not only consists of Yelena but Melina Astakhov played by Rachel Vice and Alexei Shostakovich Known as the Red Guardian David played by David Harbored Harbor. Excuse me and the trailer also gives us our first look at the film's Big Bad than Torius taskmaster and So there is that first glimpse an black widow will be opening. May I twenty twenty so you do have a few more months to wait although twenty twenty is right around the corner. It's crazy. How fast this year went by just moosh? I'm pretty sure that New Year's was like a week ago. Last New Year's it just feels like it was crazy fast. Are you excited for the new. Black widow. STANDALONE on film. Are you intrigued to find out. What Natasha's journey is going to look like and how this team is going to interact And where this is going to take black widow in her character arc. Although you're kind of backtracking in time which can be a you know you gotta got to keep it all straight in your head. So hopefully you're you're better at that at that than I am. I said before I definitely need a marvel universe for dummies thing. We need a very detailed synopsis of everything to Keep It all straight
Noah Baumbach Digs Into A 'Marriage Story'
"It's the opening scene in the film ahead of a screening of marriage story at the telluride film festival this year and in front of a live audience. I spoke with driver. Just after Martin Scorsese presented him with a career. Honor driver was at telluride for marriage story and another upcoming movie the report in which he plays a US Senate investigator looking into this as use of torture after nine. Eleven driver explain what his relationships are like with directors. He's worked with multiple times and that list includes Jim Jarmusch and marriage story. Filmmaker Noah Baumbach. There's there's something that we are way of working. Our work ethic is similar in that. They don't take it for granted that we're making a movie. The has the potential to reach a plays that as far away and either give language to a culture. That's completely different than ours. And someone's paying a lot of money for us to be here right right now for this amount of time to do this thing that will last forever and labeled the feeling and how powerful that is why why take that for granted why show up and kind of wing it you know or not. Consider what it is. You're saying and that no detail is too who small now. Obviously there's traps and all of that that you can get so worked up in details that you're trying to control everything and don't leave room for you know something. That's more abstract with those people. They're brilliant writers and create a set an environment onset where you're free to You know all those things that hope from from people you're free to get it wrong and you're free to explore and but really don't take it for granted if I was trying to summarize summarize it which is kind of hard. They very much curated the people that they want to work with in front and behind the camera and you feel like as much as everything thing is both has meaning and as meaningless. You don't don't take it for granted and finding people that have your same work ethic gets a rare thing. I think I just repeated myself three times the best show of hands. How many people in telluride for the atom driver double feature marriage story and the report? Wow okay. That's about half a house as quick question without spoiling either film. I WanNa ask you about Dan. Jones and CIA's post nine eleven detention and interrogation program which a lot of people would call torture. They call it extreme rendition of the things. What would you say about that film going into it without giving it away about why? That movie spoke. Oh Q.. And why you thought it was something you wanted to do. I mean the topic is was something that I you know embarrassing. They didn't know anything about and I mean the original report is over six thousand thousand pages. The redacted version is just over five hundred and our script with one hundred thirty. How do you how do you tell that story as economically as possible astle but not without leaving the humanity out of it so that all of those things just an opportunity to potentially bring a topic to light that has been in the dark and that I was inspired by you? Hope there's people like that in a room alone toiling away for six years with no support trying to trying to make a difference and that relationship with something that you've grown up with thinking that you can trust and suddenly you know you have to not only do you feel like you're trying to make a moral judgment for the country but internally as well they all those the reasons why I want to do it you were recently doing. Burn this and I'm wondering when you're doing it play and then going. Lean into film or television. What are the things that you might miss retain as an actor? WHO's doing a show in front of a different audience every night when you're not able oh to replicate that on a film set yeah? It's a totally different thing. It's I working with Mila. For example he likes to do a lot of takes and that actually feels more familiar to working on out of play because the lines of the lines. There's no there's no Improv. This is what it is blocking it out. But the intention can be a million different things and he he structured the day smartly so we have enough time to explore all the possibilities of what it could be not just arbitrarily but I mean sometimes and and then sometimes you have to rebel against him and then just do it the way you WanNa do it just to shock yourself and shock the system and then maybe come up with something better but you know it's like a whole run of a rehearsal truncated into a day. which is I rare with? Someone like Noah and you're also rehearsing you know if you can be as much as you can before you start just being prepared to give yourself time to explore all the options and when you don't do that with a soderbergh then I tend to have regret of like you can't help but go home and imagine I had all these ideas that now but then again. Maybe those were bad ideas that I don't know oh anything. The tribute is a sham. Last question I think there are a lot of things that different people will take away from marriage story one being. If you're thinking about going into family law you might reconsider it. But what was the thing that you treasure about making this film with knowing scarlet again. That could be a long answer that I know I should keep short. I mean this movie is hard to. I feel hard to talk about because it's very personal and it was personal. The people who made a collectively and we talked about it a couple of years before we started making those conversations tens of what it's about or what will retry into are still happening but how love can transition and how that can be violent set not not physically violent but an internal violent thing of you know someone kinetically where you know. It's everything your way. Oh you were in a room together a second nature then suddenly to divorce that from yourself That could be painful but maybe it's just transitioning into something different. I thought that was a beautiful idea. This is not a sham. Adam coming up on the frame the writer and director of marriage story Noah Baumbach on capturing the heartbreak of divorce Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn. Our next guest is filmmaker Noah Bam back he wrote and directed indie darlings like Margot at the wedding and the squid and the okay all his stories often feature realistic and flawed characters and it holds true for his latest film marriage. Story Charlie and Nicole played by Adam driver ever and Scarlett Johansson are a couple struggling with the early stages of their divorce bombeck painstakingly mapped out the process of their separation. And that makes watching watching marriage story. especially if you're married a bit like watching a horror film. Here's how bombeck described the movie when we recently spoke at the Middleburg Film Festival. I've a friend who said the movie gets divorced so you don't have to which I think is a nice message from married couples relatively Glib but I can see it Netflix has another movie. That's planet Middleburg called two popes. Your movie is called Marriage Story. They both seem like obvious. Titles but almost inevitable bowl. Did you play around with other things to call this. I didn't coordinate with Fernando Morass. I I It was it was the working title from the beginning. The the idea that I'd come up with something else but like pseudo you know Phil Collins but something about the movie resisted more more specific or poetic titles things like the squid and the whale. Didn't there was no squid in the whale to be found and so I I kept coming back to it. I liked it as its in. Its simplicity. I want to ask you a little bit. Because Adam drivers said that this was a collaborative process and hobbies. You're the writer the director. But how would you describe the process of putting the story together and before we started filming what you were talking to due. At least you're actors about it from the onset. It was important for me to know who the actors who are some of the actors were in the movie. I wanted To Have Charleena Nicole in my head is inspiration but also because I wanted to bring the actors in to the process a bit I Adam. I've I've been friends with now. When so when I brought him sort of some of these ideas he would say like? Oh these are things I might. He he was interested in playing a theater director. That's you know as I remember it. That's how that came into the movie. You have often had characters who you are very articulate. That could be writers. They could be theater directors that could be. They are very capable expressing themselves and talking about. Maybe maybe what they're feeling or what they're feeling about somebody else. Is that something that you think is a pattern. That you like articulate characters who happen to have particular jobs does one beget the other. I don't know I I don't think about it like that. Quite the artistic the fact that they were artists and and creative and professional partners in this movie was I thought important and also narrative interesting because there was sort of more at stake.
How to Get in Fast on Artificial Intelligence
"The invisible brand marketing in the age of automation big data machine learning william william welcome to the show great to be here. Thanks well you say in the book that machines not marketers have become the ultimate arbiters designers and implementing customized tactics tactics that protestant laugh cry vote donate and most importantly bye bye bye. I gotta tell you william that is a scary thought we'd removed from an age where we're seducing consumers to where marketers have to think about seducing algorithms and for the average small business owner they can be very intimidating and what i mean by that is we are in an age where recommendation engines are out there continuously telling consumers what to buy and how to vote and how to think and we as marketers have to understand those recommendation engines have become a middleman in the transaction and if we're not understanding how those algorithms work were missing out on big opportunities. So how did we get there because it just seems like yesterday with a small business owner was concerned about was creating creating a great value proposition to solve your pain and now all of a sudden we have to start thinking about when when i call intelligent automation well i think we're all suffering from a degree degree of panic over future shock and how quickly this stuff happens to us. You know twenty years ago as business owners we were faced with a up brand new technologies search engine optimization right you know google comes out and we've got a now make our products appear in search some of us invested and made money some of us decided that we would sit on the sidelines and not really pay attention to that and we lost and so now today we're faced with a brand new challenge. We got voice based interface interface. It's we're talking to our cars. We're talking to our television sets. We're talking to our phones and using voice consumers are now purchasing things. Are your your small business owners. You know paying attention to that trend and you know the challenge that we face is. How do we invest our time and energy. Where do we put our money and i would say the growth rate of voice user interfaces should tell you that voice is very much like where search engine optimization dacian was twenty years ago. Put money into it because your products and services need to be found using voice ever since i saw that movie her with scarlett scarlett johansson i'm like i want one of those operating systems right and i was one of the first users of alexa and i love using siri because i think it is the most natural way to communicate and it does as you talk about in the book. It creates that emotional connection. That's really such a key element for people buying stuff. I'll give you a quick anecdote. There was a study done recently where participants were asked to involve themselves in conversation with a little robot so they're having a conversation conversation at the end. The test group was told okay now. Turn off the robot in the study group. People were told to turn off the robot and the robot protested it said please don't turn me off. I'm scared of the dark and a shocking number of the study participants refused to turn off the robot why because they were in pathetically relating to that little robot. I was scared of the dark as a little kid therefore i don't wanna do that to somebody else who's scared of the dark and our empathy sympathy our ability to project our own experiences onto an inanimate object that is program to tell us that we're that it scared the dark it it makes us vulnerable because it opens us up to being persuaded by things that are just machines are devices that are programmed to tell us nice things but out empathy largely related to our voice communications is actually opening up to persuasion and marketers need to understand. That's an opportunity. Consumers need to understand that vulnerability. I know whenever tickly bad day william i asked alexa pay me a compliment and she always does and somehow how it makes me feel better. So what should what can a small business owner do in this. This area of <hes> psycho technology with with these is to really take advantage of this trend well small business owners are probably already using artificial intelligence in a couple of ways so using it in search. They're using it in you. Know <hes> ad placement more and more frequently people are using technology like real time bidding to buy ads but areas like customer service chat bots and voice abled customer interactions on <hes> health centers are two additional places where where small businesses are increasingly involving themselves with they. I and i would say also look at your cash register. Your cash register collects a mountain of data.

Why 'The Irishman' May Not Be Coming to a Theater Near You
"I'm kim masters and this is the hollywood breakdown joining me as melanie of the hollywood reporter and matt net flicks is going for the gold you know they. They got very very close to a best picture. They certainly got the nomination. They didn't get the win last year with roma now. They have a crazy number of movies that they are pushing into the award season. <hes> i think probably the highest profile is martin scorsese's. The irishman an a an outlandishly expensive film about one hundred and sixty million paramount wouldn't do it. <hes> but netflix would now what you're seeing. Is this this drama. Of what kind of release will this movie get and it's almost like the film world is saying hey. This is martin scorsese movie. It has to be in theaters. I accept that's not really an option well. It isn't a small sense. I mean this is becoming an annual debate with netflix where everyone takes note of these high high profile projects that they pick up and then the question becomes well. Wait a second. This is the kind of movie that a lot of people wanna see in theater and the filmmakers certainly wants to see it in a theater later. So what are you gonna do about it and netflix is in this really really tough position. They would love to show these movies for a small amount of time in theaters nationwide worldwide worldwide but they go out and do the road show they try to convince these big theater chains to play the movie and again this year that theater chain said oh. It's going to be out on netflix in a couple of weeks. No we're not gonna play this movie so what you have here is. This is going to release about ten films this fall in theaters but they're forced. I only show them in small independent theater chains new york los angeles some other big cities and for about three four weeks in some cases before they go on the service. We know that steven spielberg for example had some feelings that he sort of expressed last year with roma saying if it's not on screens it's it's a t._v. It's a it's a t._v. Movie it's not a movie movie and then there was a lot of blowback about that and people thought it was exclusionary of young talent. That doesn't necessarily have the power command that kind of release. There was a lot of debate but i imagine if i were steven spielberg i'd be sort of smiling and nodding to myself because i think unless netflix can breakthrough and snag an actual best picture award or some serious batch of major awards at the oscars. I dunno if i'm in a list director to who thinks that i have the power you know to demand a wide release. I'm going to be looking at my options and i'm gonna wanna go to someone who has the ability to say yes. We'll let this play really wide in theaters and because that is the you know it's the holy grail for filmmakers. One thing is clear here and that's that netflix is not going away. I mean they they are coming back. This season even stronger than last season where roma while a great film was a niche play. It was a tough sit as they say you had to really. They get into the the art films of all black and white. It was a period piece. It was different language all of those things yes made it a huge challenge and that's very different from a martin scorsese says he film which has gangsters violence and stylish scenes and everything like that you know they've also got this noah baumbach film with scarlett johansson and adam driver ever to stars of marvel and star wars franchises that are going to be in a film that i think a lot of people are going to want to see and eric story is the name of the film just to fill that in and it's supposed to be getting way out of venice which has just started exactly and i think that the more every season netflix learns a little bit about how to release these films and even if they can't get at that big wide scale theatrical release. They're doing everything else possible to court these filmmakers. They have a sixty person award staff. The people working at netflix dedicated to winning awards. They have no expense spared campaigns. They were they host events. They run <unk> advertising. They pull out all the stops and these are the kinds of things that filmmakers take notice because they say what are you doing for my movie. Well and the other advantage that netflix has of courses at the studios are getting out of this kind of business so we'll see what happens. That's matt bellamy editorial director of the hollywood

I think that film is consistently been slow moving, at least unlike mainstream film. There's not a lot of LGBT characters in general in mainstream movies like moon, like I've seen characters like myself on television, but it wasn't telling moonlight that I saw my story being told on the silver screen. It's fucking slow moving. It is slow. Moving well. Yeah. Well, hopefully it will move faster. Yes, when your lips to my agents, ears and the casting directors from all right, I got a corner.

A woman, but identified. As a male in the film rub rub and tug in an interview with NPR naturally? At trans activists had this to say about it so expendable the more why. Is it deeply offensive to you when assists actress chosen to play a trans character so casting male actors to play trans women and female actors to play trans, men really reinforces the idea that trans men are really. Women who are pretending to be men and tricking people into thinking their men as opposed. To the truth which is the transgender men are living entity as. Themselves and we look like men and we feel like men and we are perceived as. Men and there's no reason like women should be playing us all man To. See a lot to say they're Immanuel Kant comes to mind there are many things that I believe that I shall never say but I shall never say the, things that I do not leave so in response to. The backlash Scarlett Johansson released, a statement or critics and she said tell them that they. Can be directed to Jeffrey tambor or Jared Lito or. Felicity Huffman These are all SIS actors who prayed, played trans characters, why isn't there this about of outcry when Jeffrey tambor chose to play Mora in transparent Now that sounds good and then she buckled and then she buckled So, what's the source of all of this outrage It's a small vocal, mob who the mainstream media has for some reason given a platform and, whose voice voices louder than the rest of ours and they're. Able to bully until they get what they want Let's say that Scarlett Johansson had refused to head refused the role to begin with on the ground that. She wouldn't play a transgender character I can guarantee you that the same, crowd wouldn't say oh good they would have said how dare her and. Would have probably tried to force her to play that role Can we just live next to each other can't we just leave each other alone You. Want to address woman and you, wanna be a woman and claim your a woman. I'm going to have a scientist argue the x and y chromosome. Thing with, you but. That's only if you. Push me and. Push me push me I mean I'm fine? Live. Anywhere you want I don't care Oh I love Hollywood eating their own though that's just. Tasty I love their own I love the fact that you cannot get a a. SIS person to play a trans person right not in Hollywood they. Pretend they, can't act. What are you what. Are you crazy Did anybody have a problem with the, play? Hamilton I don't.

"Scarlett johansson getting a big fat backlash this time for not well a couple reasons but most recently because of comments that she made in response to concern some people have over a new role of hers so she this is not the first time by the way i carlo hanson being at the center of a casting controversy so you may not know the story that she's joining you alerted us to this during a dirt alert update a while back that she has scarlett johansson is joining rupert sanders the director to star in a movie called rub and tug yeah so we reported this on tuesday mostly because of the fact that the movie was named rub and tug and were twelve years old right so that was the headline that she signed on to be the to be the star in this movie well in the film is based on the true story of a transgender massage parlor owner named dante tax gil if you saw pictures of this person it would not be shocking understand why some people are a little confused about why scarlett johansson is playing this role chief among them that this is a trans person and scarlett johansson is not a trans person she would be called a sys gender person a person who is not transgender crabs before we even get into that whole conversation a statement was released by her people through her people an unnamed representative in response to criticism about this casting decision and here's what she said quote or do you want to read it yeah we'll read the comment from scarlet johannesson's representative on her behalf tell them that they can be directed to jeffrey tambor jared leto and felicity huffman's reps for comment so that's her response to criticism that she is playing a transgender actor and you know we can get into the criticism in a moment but it seems in that statement to be maybe just a little tone deaf and possibly quite rude i honestly bradley when i read that response from scarlet johannesson's team i thought it was fake i thought it was honestly made up surely scarlett johansson people can't be so flippant in their response and the reason that they made that comment is because jeffrey tambor plays a transgender woman on transparent jared jared leto also played a transgender woman in the dallas buyers club as did felicity huffman in the movie transamerica so that's what they're referencing they're saying these other sist gender actors have played transgender people in the past so why don't you talk to them if you have any issue and i will say you know i i would love to have a transgender actor or actress come on the show to talk about this particular issue from you know that first hand perspective because i'm not pretending to understand exactly every layer of the criticism but to me it seems like it's basically two fold it boils down to two things one is that this would have been an opportunity for a transgender act door to play this role right right so there's a representation piece to that argument but not only that what many people have said in the reading of of the criticism is it's not just that it's about it should be about a transgender actor playing a transgender role a character it's also about transgender actors not getting roles of sis gender people that is people who are not transgender it saying that transjet it highlights that transgender actors don't have the same opportunities in hollywood that people like scarlett johansson do so scarlett johansson can play a number of roles but transgender actors can only play largely transgender rules exactly and that's the exact point that actress traceless set made she's a transgender actress she appeared on transparent and she said i wouldn't be as upset about about the casting of scarlett johansson in this movie rub and tug i wouldn't be upset if i was getting in the same room as jennifer lawrence and scarlett for sis rolls but we know that's not the case so and she i would love to talk to her about this issue because i'm sure she would put things into perspective in a way that we just can't but i think you know it this particular issue was not served scarlett johansson was not served by her reps and she's following this statement since refused to comment right you know not only did she comment poorly or in a you know but now fashion but now she's making it worse by not commenting on that state exactly.
