"My fellow in banter, Matt Belloni. Hello, Matt. Hi there. So, Matt, we've talked about the fact It is a huge story this year that Warner media is being merged with discovery, which, as we all know, is a purveyor of a lot of reality. And that David Zaslav, who is this chief executive at Discovery is going to be running this combined entity. Very, very unlikely development. Normally, Hollywood would be like, Who is this? Not just the T V guy running, you know, Legacy property of Warner media, but a reality TV guy, like Let us try to kill him. But these people have been so miserable under the so called stewardship of a TNT, which is universally, I think seen as a terrible failure that they are just please come in and save us from this. The problem is, they can't come in right away David Zaslav and whatever he intends to do. Because there's going to be a year or more federal review, you know, antitrust considerations and so on. Zaslav has a hope to expedite this because both companies have been under the microscope at the Justice Department for other deals, and he is hoping that that can move things along. I don't know how. How likely that is, Yeah. I mean, both sides of this transaction recently went through tough federal review of most notably the 18 T acquisition of Time Warner, which Donald Trump tried to stop and turn into a hole. Legal proceeding and lasted about two years. And even on the discovery side, they recently bought scripts and there was a big review when that happened, and, you know, they're hoping that that recent review will make this one a lot less complicated, But who knows? I mean, it's a different administration. There's different people involved, and it could take a long time. And that's potentially really bad for Warner's, because we're in the middle of a streaming war here. This is a very key time in the history of media, and Netflix and Disney and Amazon are only getting bigger and they're 100% focused on transitioning away from traditional television to the streaming universe, and Warner's is going to have to try. While all of this chaos is going on. I think Zaslav is in particular concerned. I'm told about these big, very deep pocketed tech companies. And we know Amazon is just in the process of buying MGM. And, you know, I don't know that MGM It is a game changer for Amazon. But it's the kind of thing that they can do that and pay was considered this crazy price and not blink. That's the kind of thing that makes someone like David Zaslav nervous when he is going to have his own challenges coming up with the money for this really expensive pivot to streaming. We know that it's a total money suck, and so he wants to get in there, and I can't blame him. But meanwhile it has led to this situation where somebody like Jason Kyler ahead of Warnermedia, who was first reported to Be negotiating like an instant out. You know, he hired this attorney, Alan grew up in its like supposedly said, Give me my money, and I'll go because clearly I'm not part of the future here. Then that pivoted to him, telling the staff he is staying. Jason Kyler hasn't really meshed with the Hollywood content creator and creator friendly executives in the community and their representatives. This has been a Silicon Valley meats creative Hollywood moment where it has gone kind of badly, notably the decision to put all the movies for 2020. One on the streamer on the same day that they open in theaters, so he's going to stick around, probably for a year. Maybe he has a lot of reasons start to do that, But awkward here is this guy who seems like he's not going to be there, and he's there. And he's not the only one that people are wondering. That's the future involved this person that person you know, and Tsarnaev, who runs the film and TV studios. Casey Boys for certain people like Jeff Zucker at CNN. He may stay. He was going to go. It's Kyler State. But Kyler is leaving. But this kind of instability and not knowing who's a lame duck. It's really hard for a staff. That's been through a lot already. Yeah, I mean, we know why Jason Kyler is staying. We learned this past week did he is $20 million of these days for a year, so that's not bad. And the rest of the company is just still reeling from this 5 to 7. Years of total instability and leadership changes going all the way back to the Jeff Bianca's Bake off where he installed three separate executives atop Warner Brothers and essentially let them Claude out to see who would emerge victorious and then when chemistry Dzhokhar did Emerged victorious. He went down in a sex scandal. And from there it went on and on. They've had multiple leadership levels at HBO. Max they've had you know, John Spanky, in charge of Warnermedia than he was promoted to run a T and T and Kyler brought in Warner Brothers itself has had a big executive turnover, especially on some of the creative side, not Toby Emmerich. But other executives there And I just feel like there's this yearning on the Warners lot for some level of stability that isn't coming in any meaningful way for at least a year or two. I mean, one question is, Does Toby Emmerich the head of the film studio remain? I think that there are forces at work in the town who are mad at him for a number of reasons, including that decision to put all the 21 movies on day and date. You know, they have talked a lot publicly. I mean, Jason Kyler sort of did a semi me A couple of maybe we could have done it better. Toby Emmerich just did an interview and talked about how this is not going to be the strategy for 22. They're going to do some, You know, 50 fifty's some to the streamer. They're making a lot of movies, a lot of going to the streamer and and that bunch are all going. It's going to be theatrical. You know, it feels like Hollywood is pumping the brakes and they won't revise the 2021 all movies on on the streamer strategy, even though I feel like there's a certain amount of pressure to do so, and one of the people who was supposedly you know I'm kind of blindsided among everybody else who was blindsided was John Hsu, who made in the heights and I feel like I don't know whether this is their sincere wish, because cash is cash or whether they are trying to make it up to John Chu. But they he and not only he, but practicing Jason Kyler to begging people on Twitter to go see this in the big screen in the movie theater, and, you know it does seem like a movie you would want to do that with, but it's just the stress on it is it almost feels like it's a performance because of What they did before of blindsiding this filmmaker who had made crazy rich Asians at Warners turning down more money from Netflix because he's a big screen guy. Yeah, And he was financially very much rewarded for going with the big screen experience on crazy rich Asians and thought he could replicate it within the heights. Now, let's not forget that Warners did do a lot of MIA culpa deal making with a lot of these major talents, including John Chu and Lin Manuel Miranda on in the Heights, and what I Am told, is that, you know, Yes, people are bummed. But at least Warner's did that. There are rumblings about what Disney has been doing to the movies that are coming out this summer on premium video on demand day in Date with the theaters. And Disney isn't even doing that..

"For each other. It is written by Lin Manuel Miranda, who started it when it went on Broadway. And now in this new movie production you have Anthony Ramos, who was in the original Broadway cast of Hamilton, starring in it. And also Corey Hawkins. Leslie Grace all got Madden Dez, who was in the original Broadway cast as Abuela, Claudia. Is in this motion picture and in many ways steals this movie. Also, our old pal Jimmy Smits, who you know from lots of different projects, is involved in the motion picture as well. This is a movie that has been it and directed, I might add by John Hsu, who brought us crazy rich Asians real departure for him and the kind of movies that he Brings you Because is it is an explosive, joyous, celebratory movie musical so much fun to watch. I can't wait for everyone to see this. Lin Manuel Miranda has been frustrated that this movie has been on hold for a year because of the pandemic was supposed to come out in May of last year. It's now scheduled to come out. The end of this month, We talked with Lin Manuel Miranda on a zoom call. Now you have to understand the beginning of the zoom call Lynn is at his house. And I can see his office. Whatever it is, and I'm in my house and you can see my office at home and on the wall in my office. I've got pictures with some celebrities. I've got some, you know, awards that I've received. You know things like that. I've got a big bozo post from the special that we did both car and Ray and right next to that. Is a poster for the Broadway musical of Hamilton. Which is was autographed by the entire Chicago cast for a benefit that we did several years ago. So I'd sort of even forgotten that it was on the wall behind me when we hooked up. With Lin Manuel Miranda. I'm honored at the Hamiltons there next to Bozo. That's pretty incredible about that. Right? Uh, signed by the Chicago cast autographed by the Chicago cast fantastic for a benefit that I did when the pandemic first started. I did a benefit with some of the cast members who are out of work. Well, they were. They were nice enough to send me that totally forgot that That's a connection. Oh, yeah. You're involved in that show to I forgot that's always good to see you. And I cannot imagine how happy you are to finally see this movie coming to theaters and streaming services, right? Yeah, I totally have my life. Dean started writing this when I was 19 years old we started talking about this is a movie in 2000 and nine we finish the movie. Ah, year and a half ago. And then I had to wait another year s o. I am. I am so thrilled that the world finally I get to see it. What? What's your reaction that you know people are going to not only be able to see it on streaming services but on big screens where which is the way that I recommend that you see this movie? It's so big and so colorful, and it's an explosion of You know, creativity and love, and that's the way to see it. How? How much you feel after the incredible disappointment of having to put the show on the shelf for a year? It's enormous relief. Honestly, I listen I'm the first to admit that I was kind of the one dragged kicking and street screaming into delaying the release of this movie. I just I'm so proud of it. I'm so proud of what John Shoe in this incredible cast and crew made and I couldn't wait to shout it from the rooftops. But they all sort of made the argument like This is the summer film, and it just might not be this summer's film, and I think they were right because I think, you know, knock wood and then things I think What's exciting is that like you can see it in whichever way makes you feel most safe. You can stream this when it comes down or you could go see this on the biggest screen possible in whatever way makes you feel safe and then go home and watch the kid s so it's kind of the best of both worlds in terms of the way we're releasing this and again like there's an extra layer. Poignancy when you watch it because we filmed that pre pandemic, So you see people hugging and dancing and kissing in the streets, and it's so much a film about community at a time when we are learning how to join our communities in person. So explain to me the difference that people will see if they're familiar with in the heights from this stage. How is this screen version different? I think for musical theater fans. The best way to describe it is this is a cabaret level adaptation. And I mean that in every sense of the word cabaret took many departures from the stage version on Bear were plotlines That changed, But I think the essence of the musical and the themes of the musical are even more concentrated. And attacked and I think that I think we've achieved a similar thing here with in the heights. There are songs that we had to cut their our story lines that we re prioritized. But it was all in the service of making the best movie possible. Not the best. Here's the play on screen on guy. Think John and Kiara are screenwriter did a beautiful job. I cannot praise enough this cast. This is just one of the most amazing, talented, effervescent Casts that I've seen in one motion picture. You must. I can't even imagine how the father of this whole project was feel seeing, seeing what's come of this little project you started when you were a teenager. It's funny. You use the word father because that's what I that with it, and it's and it's sort of appropriate because I've gone from being the kid who got managed to get our show onto Broadway when I was Really pretty young. As far as these things go, too..

I don't think because even though the CEO of Warner Media Jason Kyle are is already saying this is just because of the pandemic in 2022, we could reevaluate. I just don't see how you do that. This is their policy. 18 T bought Warner media to explicitly to start a streaming service and take on Netflix. They don't care about the theatrical business. And now here, it shows and I think you're really going to see a catastrophic End of the movie business as we know it. Yeah, I mean, I was texting with one of their competitors the night before this announcement, the spin was the theater business will be reborn, and it will become this much better experience and I'm like rolling my eyes and yes, they didn't go to the theaters. They didn't go to anybody because they knew that with the blowback would be they just dropped it And I will note something like Godzilla versus Kong. Legendary paid 75% of the budget for that movie and basically can't control its destiny Got an offer from Netflix wanted to sell. The necklace was blocked by Warners because Warner's paid the other 25% and had the deal that give it the power to block that sale. And then they wake up in the morning saying, Guess what? We're putting it on our streaming service. There's no deal in place. This is not how we do business in Hollywood. You don't just say I'm totally twisting your arm, but I may have pulled it off. I think there was going to be incredible blowback from film makers, producers all of their partners, this kind of behavior. It's a digital thing bloodless. Move, But I think in Hollywood, you're gonna find a certain amount of blowback. Yeah, they're gonna have to pay out all the talent because there are expectations of box office bonuses and back in that are cooked into deals when you do this, and we saw this with Wonder Woman when it went to streaming. You got to pay out the filmmaker and you got to pay out Gal Gadot, the star and Maurin importantly, though, there is a feeling that the theatrical experience is being threatened here and you mentioned yes that the theaters could possibly reinvent himself. Cells. But let's say this impacts theaters 25 30%. That is a significant hit that the theaters will take on. A lot of them will go out of business. As we know the hits or what Dr the theater business, and even a 30% decrease would cause many theaters to go out of business. Perhaps the ones that remain would reinvent themselves Great. But talent here I mean, think of someone like John to the director of in the heights. He specifically took this movie Toe Warner Brothers when Netflix was offering a lot more money because of the experience he had with crazy Rich Asians, which also spurned Netflix for Warners and got a theatrical release and became a huge cultural phenomenon. Because of that theatrical release, he went Toe Warner's thinking he'd get that again. Now he's getting day and date. That's not what he signed up for. Yes, I mean, just let me be clear. I'm not the one who said the theater business will be reborn. That's the dream of executive in this business. And as I said, Yes, he is a perfect example. John Hsu of what does he think of this? And what will he think? Next time? He has a project that he wants to take somewhere. Thank you, man. Thank you. That's meant

"And and then you open up that you hear the banter in the distance, And then I opened the door. It gets louder and you can hear people like Hey, Mike doesn't go on. What have you been working on? Right like that's that typical industry. Like, what have you been up to, You know, write and they're looking bastard son, and they look at that because that look, I mean, that's in the lyrics. It's like Just like you know, the paparazzi SA all these wandering eyes, folks be acting brand new like they really care about you. You don't say like that. That's what the song is about us so funny. Just look there looking around like that. They're talking to you with a psycho like you who's more important that I should probably be. For real, Um, I've been in that party, but ah s o. But I'm grateful I've been to those because I got a song out of it. So there you go. My guess is Anthony Ramos than in his new album is the good and the bad. I won't play one more track. Dear diary. What's this about? Your diary Did diaries diaries like my love letter to my home? You know, I think you know the first verses for my mother. You know, 2nd 1st from my dad hated Mama. Can you tell me how you've been? I said, I know. I said, I'll be back in two months and I've been gone ever since I went across the country to chase the things that I'm needing to grow, so I had to get away from you and everything I have unknown. And then, Dad, you know? Hey there, Pop. I wish I knew where you been. We talked two months ago. And I heard from you since I'm not gonna lie. I was a little messed up from the last text you said, but thank God for Mama. She talked me out of a gift. You know, and then and then again on unnamed Lyndon Park, you know, which is a park and Bush Bush project live in late nights and Linden Park Challenge and Genes create Jean's crew. Gene is one of my closest friends from childhood. And But what was crazy was like, you know, you get so caught up in life, and I hadn't seen him and him Jeans crib with Randy. Robin Reuben. I hadn't seen them in 10 years. I was like, how did we go so long without seeing each other and then found Jean on Instagram. And then he connected me with Randy Robin Rubin, and they agreed to do the video after we haven't seen each other in 10 years, and that was the first time we saw each other on that video shoot, and it was like super emotional and like now we have a group text threadlike, and we take each other, like almost every week. He's checking in with each other. And you know, and geez Craven and Mama Frieda's pork chops kind of feeling so good portions were the best. Frieda's pork chops, jeans, mom, and that song is just, um Is really my love letter to home, like, Thank you is the first track on the album because this album became about a guy who thought he needed to leave home to figure out who he wanted to be in life and then realize that the end in track 12 that all the answers he ever needed. About who he wanted to be in life were right in front of him at home. So he realized on as he fell in love with someone and And they fell out and he goes to the industry party experienced loneliness. He he's Ah ah, hey expert is his for his friend pulls him out of the rut like all of these things, then he has his reflective moment in the good and the bad And then it's basically in the last song Come back home is basically Like in my head. It was like him descending in the plane and what he's thinking about as he's coming into JFK not embedded and my mom is rice and beans or the sound of people yelling Industries, the lights one Atlanta JFK, The cold wind. When it hits me in my face, I only feel the ground under my feet when jazzy standing right there next to me, and that's my fiance and those things that make me feel at home and I see only paradise on now. I had to leave to see how good I had it. So that's the last one. I woman Dear Diary is the first because it's like, Hey, family. I love you. But I gotta go too, to chase my dream. And then you realize await the dream was right in front of me the whole time. You know? Before playing before we go. I have to ask in the heights question. Yes. How's it going? It was great. You don't adapt. Well done wrapped. We wrapped in August. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. John Hsu is one of the most incredible human beings I ever met. He directed. Crazy rotation. Crazier chase. Yup. Yup. And Ah and John his heart. Is As big as his talent, Maybe, if not bigger, and his talent. He's one of most brilliant humans I've ever come across in the history of my life. What's one thing you learned from him? It'll take forever. Karen I think one thing on their from John was. You are not bigger than you are not bigger than the the, um in the blueprint. You ain't you ain't you're not bigger than the project. You're not bigger than the art. You aren't bigger than any person on the set. We all want unit working together to tell one story toe hopefully impact many. So we're we're all a piece of this puzzle. So So handle yourself with humility with love. And patience. I mean, these are things that I've learned from him, But it's just like I mean, handle yourself with humility,.

"Deservedly been criticized for its long history. Of, failing to represent people other than straight white. Men slowly though. Major studios are, starting to, make an effort to feature diverse perspectives both in front of and behind the camera tomorrow crazy rich Asians opens. In theaters the film directed by Jon m CHU and based on the best selling book by Kevin Kwan. In the movie the character of Rachel, is played by Constance Wu, a Chinese American woman who's meeting her boyfriend's family in Singapore, for the first. Time people aren't just crazy rich Tell me what you like Malaysia that's really, more of a Harry crazy rich Asians already has great reviews and could do very well at. The box office this weekend but? Why is it an outlier Justin Chang is a film critic and columnist for the l. a. times where you can, find his, review of crazy rich Asians the statistic or the factoid I guess that's? Being circulated is that crazy rich is the first Hollywood studio production to feature an all Asian cast. In more. Than ten years, looking, back I was thinking. Okay memoirs of a geisha I guess we count letters, from Jean Kunis, woodstove combat those would count. But those are period movies it's the first film in twenty five years since the Joy Luck Club to feature specifically this question kind of Asian American. Identity in Asian American cast although. The cast, is actually interesting. It's panties British Asian. Actors there's Asian American actors they're Asian, actors who live in Asia so it is kind of. This murderer's row of all Asian acting talent so we really haven't seen anything like this movie since? The club and that is pretty agree GIS I think let's talk a little bit more about the. Film itself, it opens with, a, brutal racist assessment of. Woman played by Michelle Yeoh who is trying to check, into a posh, London hotel and what the. Clerk doesn't know that she's incredibly wealthy and powerful and yet she's turned away because she's Asian kind of frames the movie I think from the get-go. About what this film is about. And how, these people feel. Marginalized absolutely and that. Scene is actually taken from Kevin Kwan's. Book are on which the movie is based you think It kind of turns this is very satisfying scene in which. Michelle ios character turns the tables on this extremely rude racist snob she's dealing. With so yeah it's a nice medically works very well and it's perfect introduction to, to what the movie's about which is of? Course this very exuberant tour of the lifestyles of Singapore's rich and that's kind of an understatement of. Course we're talking about kind of a one percent of the one percent it seems like I. Want, you if you can't take off your film critic hat for a. Moment I dunno fedora or beret if the newsboy cap I got better as an Asian American when you look at this film and the what it has to say about inter-asian tension there's even, a part of the film that talks about the derogatory term 'banana when. You think about this film at what has to say about the Asian experience how do you. Think. That resonated with you does it do Justice to some of the issues around Asians and even. Inter age Asian, tension what I think the movie does very well is that it gives. You this tour of this very high class society that is a world that very few of us know and I'm, not just thinking about Asian. Anyone but, it frames that world through the eyes, of an outsider who is Asian American I think that, captures an, experience that, a lot of Asian Americans feel and I certainly include, myself in that this feeling sometimes. Of not, belonging to either are are kind of adopted American culture or are. Asian culture from which we have descended and so that feeling of not belonging in either place but. What I learned about the movie is that there, are all sorts of little cultural nuances. Spread throughout and I don't see this movie on an empty stomach if you can help. It there's this really delicious food montage that you get which you don't typically. Get in a glossy studio romantic comedy in your review you actually call it a, tour to force of lifestyle pornography but you? Also say and I'm quoting you now it's a concerted effort by a long-neglected Hollywood Authority to storm the big, studio citadel and possibly, even beat it at its own game what do you mean by that ladder statement as John Hsu said in an. Interview I believe there are quite a few projects Asian. Lead projects that are writing on this movie's, commercial success I mean depending on how well this movie does that could mean the. Difference between a green light or a red light and so I think it's a rotten system I think it's a corrupt system I think it's wrong to expect people of color to have to prove that they like movies to prove that they. Like watching themselves on screen to basically force them to. Earn their right to be seen I think we all have the right to be seeing but if those, are the rules of the game I hope this movie. Playing by them wins the, game I think that's an incredibly important point because, there's this part of Hollywood group thank that says, every movie like this is, somehow a referendum on the bigger idea so when say the. All-female Ghostbusters remake doesn't, work the conclusion is that, women can't anchor an ensemble comedy but when A big brand movie. Starring to white guy doesn't work like solo Star Wars story it's the fault of, marketing or release date or climate change or. Some other random factor that films like crazy rich Asians are. Held to, a completely different standard yeah they are I mean I think that what we think of as entertainment that's largely. About white men appeal is considered general whereas. The appeal of a movie like. Crazy rich Asians is deemed to be more particular perhaps and that's a very unfair double standard I think while I want every movie to be good and I'm not rooting for mediocre movies I wish that. A movie featuring an all black cast or an all, Asian Casteran all Latin next cast could be mediocre, and for not to have to be this referendum as. You say on the very idea those movies existing and they're not trying to. Reinvent the wheel necessarily they're they're a lot of them aren't that cleaning various sort. Of standard even generic templates in terms of story. Narrative but there is something that happens when you tell, it with Different people. And different people behind the camera and different certainly different people in front of the. Camera it lends this freshness that I think the system has not been tapping into it. In a sense, it kind of makes, these very old familiar stories feel new again Justin Chang is a. Film, critic for the Los Angeles, Times he is also a frequent guest on air.
