"Sound like can you work out your face. Is there to flex your face. I there are many actors who would really benefit from that but i especially as there were many podcasters who confirm that no i don't think so but he just is also so there's a warmth in this which i actually don't normally expect from him because he's so oh great at playing that really snaky hanson and i think he's really charming and probably i'd like. It's not a problem because i liked watching him but another imbalanced in this movie is that he is too likable is kind of what he is doing doesn't make a ton of sense yeah. He's a little underutilized in general general yeah he was originally. I meant to be more of a leading man. He never quite got off. The ground is the leading nancy right he kind of slid into that oily villain role or sometimes as sort of an untrustworthy type plays a lawyers. Here's a lawyer in spotlight. You know that's kind of his performance. Yeah how did you do. I just i he's also just is really good at being like despicable and handsome which is like a speaks to me. It reminded me a lot of <hes> twentieth century women. It's like if the twenty century women grew up in invented something for microsoft often and that's a good. That's a good lean for him a good vibe for him. Let's talk about link later. Okay we can. I just say one more thing that i there's one thing i really liked about this movie. I really enjoyed the documentary within the movie which was booth like a formal nod to the movie movie itself but to the book itself but also really worked very well done. Yeah and i'm just like oh okay. They've really tried. I like that. I like when you can just see that that someone is like working through a bunch of ideas and and maybe maybe not everything works okay. That's what i was gonna say. Though about link later which is that he's got a lot of ups and downs but this guy is a fucking master like he is you can see he's gotten way more moves than your workaday. Mid budget movie director. He's way more interested in a lot of different kinds of things whether that's making a mini documentary inside of his movie featuring megan mullaly and steve zahn laurence fishburne or actually executing against the architectural plans inside of a novel or creating sculpture inside with with with glasses like his mind and the people that he works closely with over what is now thirty years in the movie business are interested in trying stuff and even though the entire movie business around the kind of films that he makes his falling apart around him he still going for and he's still looking for people that are gonna help him out. I think one of the anxieties that surrounded the movie is that anna purna funded the movie and a print has been going going through this year long trauma of questioning whether or not it should be a company and whether megan ellison burn through all the cash and does she not know what is a movie that makes money oughta. We talk about stuff on the show all the time like i don't care just make good movies ultimately. That's the thing i'm most interested in and i appreciate an effort at adapting the great novel with a great filmmaker with great actress and trying to make something doesn't totally work but it's the most valiant effort. I think i've seen this year sure i would agree with that. Seem reasonable yeah and it just a lot of different things to hang onto you and discuss which is another thing that we don't get a lot of it. It gets a very rich taxed of a movie which brings me anything that i wanna talk about it. I didn't like only but i just we can't crack cast chris renwick and dramas anymore more drama. It's not working for me. It's distracting every single time and i know that it's supposed to serve to play into the satire role but she's like like kind of a satire of a satire at this point. It's just ever since the martian for me. What should she doing comedy things where she can be funny because this even though it is supposed to be comic relief in a way the other problem is that she's just mitch mismatched with cate blanchett and and end the bernadette role they have different energies yeah and it's it's like not even a fight a scene when they come together is really like this. This doesn't work you know and they finally agree to like make jokes at each other. That's the that stuff. Doesn't you know she's had a weird career. She's obviously really talented. I would put her in the kind of all time saturday night live like she might be a mount rushmore saturday night live person absolutely <hes> and so you can never take that away from her <hes> but she's having kind of a funky film career i just think also there's an association to her being in a movie at this point that it's hard to look past. You can't just be a character. She's being kristen league as a character and that is tough when you're especially when you're trying to do this delicate balance of app tones in a movie like where'd you go bernadette so one of the challenges for you as a movie fan is that her next big part is of course as the super villain in wonder wonder woman nineteen eighty-four. I'm very concerned. She plays barbara and maneuvres so just don't like eighty s stuff. I don't need movies said in the eighties. I'm good. I lived through it sort love. Wow so i'm sweeping claim well. I i've had enough. You know how many seasons of stranger things that we had at this point. I know that's a t._v. Maybe show it's whatever i it's just it's not the reference point that i'm interested in so i am very concerned about wonder woman nineteen eighty-four. Even though i loved wonder the woman i love gal gadot. I love chris pine who is somehow still alive in this movie that set forty years after he died in the first one whatever i know that you are officially back from vacation because you are patently dismissing things right out of hand. I'm not even really giving them very much thought. I don't know where richard linklater later goes from here. He's now made a few movies in a row that nobody saw after boyhood. He saw he made everybody wants them. Which is just god amazing and if you haven't seen everybody wants to go watch the movie right now. You really should also disagreed late summer movie. Everybody wants them. I'm sure i've told us before was a movie but i didn't see because you and chris ryan brian went to see it and we're like real boy movie but i loved it which is sometimes i can feel about link later films true and literally made a movie called boyhood. Yes and my husband said the same thing and then i watched it and i was just like this is just a group of charismatic young men baseball fans went to hawkeye's yes yeah. It's also how glenn towel came to us. Very true always remember that richard linklater discovered glen powell always with an eye for talent the actress who plays be in this movie the same thing. It's like who is that person nelson. I'd never seen her before. I think this is our first film and introducing us wonderful he has that he made last like flying a couple of years ago and he was on the show talking about it one. He's obviously just like such a thoughtful interesting dude to that. Also is an adaptation of a novel. It was the sequel to the last detail changed a couple of things not everything it's kinda hard oh to capture the essence of a story like that used movie stars it kind of it was similarly uneven and it was similarly bought by a company that hasn't been releasing movies for the last hundred years. I was amazon release. He's looking to wherever he can to get sort of the medici work of of big companies that don't realize that it's hard to sell richard. Linklater movies in school of rock is really his only true blue hit. He's made ten plus films that people love you know these and confused bombed you know the before movies don't have a big audience even though they're small scale movies. They're all they're all like d._v._d. Movies and so it's interesting kinda why time that was lucrative but it was it was <hes> but for the most part even when he's tried to work quote quote unquote commercial i guess bad news bears pre well too though that was a remake <hes> but just having interesting career like i hope he gets to make twenty five more movies. I'm sure he will find a way to do so with small amount of money but i hope he gets more money. I think in terms of the medici strategy seems like a very smart strategy for later which again again you have to admire someone who has figured out the system and figure it out. I don't even wanna say game it but how best to fit in and find people who are willing to make his particular type of movie it because it doesn't make sense for him to do studio stuff and this movie isn't gonna make a ton of money. Do you think people will watch this at home. Oh absolutely yeah yeah and in that might actually be the right atmosphere for it. I don't think that you lose anything and so finding his way into that market but here's the thing and you've made this point so many times on this show. This is the classic movie where if i watched it at home. I'd be looking at my phone yeah because there's some parts that are uneven. There's some parts where i'm like. Are you losing me a little bit. That is just totally not quite where i want to be. That's that is usually when i'm like what's on twitter. <hes> you know what's what's what's going on in slack right now and i i like the idea of seeing movies like this even movies that aren't perfect that aren't great in theaters and letting them invalid me a little bit more. It's also lsu uncomfortable at times which again it might have been amanda feeling too close to certain aspects of it but i was thinking about it. I want to see it by myself and this. This is a particular tone that my husband can't stand key. I don't think finished big little lies season one because he was just like this is too uncomfortable and there is something about the the passive aggressiveness and the someone just losing it in real time that is hard to watch and if you're at home you can just like well done. I've seen enough enough of this. I don't need to be in this vibe anymore and if you're in the in the movie theater you're just on the on the journey amanda. I've got some breaking news in front of me. Okay an update. This deadline dot com meghan ellison's company nearly out of the woods quote unquote last and final offer made to banks. Here's the story looks like hollywood's biggest lender about to call off the dogs on annapurna meghan ellison's taste maker production distribution company sources said that ellison's father oracle co-founder larry ellison has submitted a quote last and final offer to pay per key lenders offering between eighty cents an eighty five cents on the dollar. This is for debt sources place at north of two hundred million dollars dollars that the company defaulted on through three hundred fifty million dollars credit facility secured fall twenty seventeen and i guess is saved by larry ellison and thus we will get. Where'd you go bernadette to seeking bernadette. I mean this is amazing. Timing it is there's no coincidence that this announcement is being made the monday after this particular release and the the press coverage of this particular movie. Yeah stay tuned to this podcast. We talk more about hopefully an apprentice ability to make more movies a couple of things that i wanted to talk to you about before we wrap up <hes> one. I think it's important that <hes> in our owed to people who have passed that you don't necessarily care about but hopefully do i mean it's peter fonda respect to peter fonda peter fond of course one of the most important people in the history of american movies and you may be overstating dating things by saying that because frankly he was not in a lot of movies that people love though he was in and see and wrote easy rider which changed movie culture forever movie that just celebrated its fiftieth fiftieth anniversary obviously the story of <hes> to motorcycle riding drug dealers who traversed the land in search of cocaine and money <hes> it's amazing that a movie with that log line changed american culture but it really did <hes> he was oscar nominated for that script he also is oscar nominated for his performance in nineteen ninety-seven gold he had an interesting movie career as an actor is is of course henry fonda son jane fonda has brother and the father of bridget fonda but he was mostly in car-chase movies and motorcycle movies and and westerns and he made he made an effort towards the kind of like indie masculinity that is kind of gone now and it's interesting you think of him i think i think most people are h.

"The hip or did the hip breaking caused him to fall more today. Slip on the peanuts. What came first the chicken or the that's just a question of the ages. You know, a man's a former president is recovering from surgery, and you can't stop doing peanuts jokes. Can we have a little bit of it sounds different? Does it really really kind of does at the bottom of the hour. Mark Remillard is gonna join us. Looks like the final numbers for today. On Wall Street. The Dow Jones down six hundred seventeen points. We'll see how that sauces out if at all over the over the next couple of minutes, and we'll talk with Mark about what this is going to mean also a little bit about what the president said earlier today about his ongoing negotiations with China over the over the trade war. Jason Nathanson joins us. Now. Jason how do you pronounce peanuts? Yes. See when you guys say it. It sounds different. I don't know why that is how do you say it watch my mouth peanuts. Right. Yeah. Peanuts. Peanuts. Say it faster. Peanut. Hey, jay. What's what's going on last night? A lot of people were without giving any spoilers people were upset with that. We're upset with game of thrones. If you wanted to watch the show, you watched the show last night, not wait every time, we say that we get emails from people who say that they were in surgery last night and couldn't watch it. So they got upset with us spoiling it. So people were mad at it. Because certain decisions were made by the producers and writers, right? How do you get without spoiling? Exactly. What happened? I mean. The bottom line is where the show has been going for this whole last season is not someplace that most people feel that it's been earned, and that they basically the creators David Benny off and db wise have ruined what Georgia Martin created in whatever the show is based off the books and then after a certain season. There was no more stuff in the books because Georgia Martin hadn't written the he hasn't. Ridden the new books so they were left to their own devices for where to go with the show, and a lot of people just aren't happy with the choices they've made and where they've gone with the show, including Megan Ellison, big time producer here in Hollywood made a bunch of great pictures with Anna Purna, she wrote last night David Benny off and just ruined thirty years, George Martin, working ninety minutes. They are obviously sexist bleeps. And obviously nothing without George Martin. Well, listen, but part of what I think has made this show so popular is that the producers the writers were willing to kill off even the most popular characters in seasons past. So, you know, the people that you came to love they may not make their way through the whole season. And what we've seen is even if they just do something like a character change or a character choice that may not fall in line with what you believe or you wanted that character to be at the end of it. That's even more. Egregious than just having somebody killed off completely. It is. I mean because at the end of the day, I I think, you know, certain characters has gone bad. When you thought they were good certain characters or better than you thought. They would whatever it is. The show has to earn it. And you can't have a character who for the whole series seven seasons of the show has been good has been a good character. And then suddenly just because you wanna put some pension in there in the last twenty minutes of a show have them, go bad. I mean, and that's what a lot of people. I think are said about that the writing just isn't where it should be. And last night a major made an people died. Okay. I think we all know that that happened. I'm not I won't say who. But people died last night, including a major character who did not get the death that they deserved on his show that's known for fantastic death and for killing people off in great ways. This one major character who is a great character died in just a stupid way. And a lot of people are upset about that. And again, they point to the writing saying that the writing just isn't clever. It's not interesting, and it doesn't serve the show, which is one of the greatest shows on television. I mean, any wise award recognition wise, numbers wise, I it's. One of these shows that have come to define the golden age of television. And it's totally screwing it up in the last season. So say a lot of well when we're looking forward to next week. It's the final episode. Do we have any expectation in terms of the audience yet? Have they suggested there were forecast any numbers the numbers? I mean, it's been basically going up. I think that's the big battle scene was the was the biggest so far that we had the third episode, and then things kind of leveled off a little bit. And we'll we're waiting on the numbers. I think we'll get the numbers tomorrow on what? Episode five, but we're hovering somewhere around on the on the night of with all the airings added in about seventeen million and number has been going up to in the thirties. I imagine, you know with delayed beuing things like that. Most people were probably going to watch this in real time and watch your next week in real time. And I would I would imagine when the dust settles. We're talking probably around forty million in terms of other series that we know are coming to an end empire is gonna come to an end after the next season after season six, right? They're going to give it one more. So we're at right now, we're in the upfront, which is where all the networks they present their new scheduled to advertisers to try to get them to pay money to them for those shows. So we are in a period of cancelling and renewing shows, and if you've seen that over the past couple of days there were slew of those last Friday, it was black Friday for a lot of shows. And so today, we got the word because FOX is doing on fronts right now, actually. And empire will have one more season. And that'll be the last season. And I was looking into the ratings of that. Because remember when empire started in two thousand fifteen it was a phenomenon. I mean, the numbers were huge. It was the fifth high the fist most watched show on television total and in the eighteen to forty nine year old demo which is the one that makes everybody money and most people care about it was number one. It was getting a seven share, which is crazy. And then since then though it's fallen off. Off a cliff big time. Whereas this season it's getting under five million viewers. So from an average of seventeen million to five million that's a huge drop, but it's still the number two drama on FOX behind nine one one. So there is some life in it. People are still watching it. Those numbers were FOX were huge for fuck for there would be huge for anybody. But FOX doesn't need huge numbers to to have a rating success and the numbers the empire house right now are pretty good. But you know, with I think the Justice melodrama, obviously affects things a little bit. And the numbers going down affects things as well. So we'll get one more season next year. And they're going up against this is us, which is I mean, I don't know. This is the ratings for this office of fallen as well, I still again, a very popular show does very well for NBC. But you know, you gotta put it somewhere. And you gotta make room for all the new shows. And FOX's a bunch of new shows as well. And so I mean, so if you're gonna if you're gonna air it, you're not trying to get it in the last season, you know, huge numbers because it's the end, you know, there's no point in trying to put it in a place where it's gonna do very, well, you put it in a place where people can watch it. But it doesn't really matter if it does well or not because it is the last season Jason great stuff, man. All righty, take care. Thanks, jay. Jason Nathanson there with the latest. What's going on just over the hill in Hollywood world coming up next to your chance at a thousand dollars? God bless you. Have you been holding that one in? I'm allergic to. Peanuts.

"To me and said, hey, dude, you wanna go see Senate doce New York with Charlie Kaufman. With Charlie Kaufman and QNA and he reeked of weed and dressed as a Christmas with an all white beard, by the way, what I'm referring to is that for a month Ryan dressed as a Christmas elf and only referred to himself as the name napkins. The story even. Yeah. There's a lot of Baxter even got the teachers to call napkin. And so I said to myself, you know, what I'm in college. I'll I'll just say, yes. So we went to go see it. And I even remember the question you ask Charlie Kaufman at the end, do you? Remember the question zero clue at the end of the movie you ask Charlie Kaufman Heyman. Do you ever thought about doing a movie about time travel? And I think like everyone else in the everyone else was asking these questions that were so far up there at that the audience kind of giggled at what seemed like a very juvenile question. But I remember if you may press room, we were in the very very front row like we were inches away from Charlie cough draft house, right? No. This was at the paramount. Okay. See, I don't know anything keep going and Charlie Kaufman. Took the question very seriously. And he said, yeah. But I haven't figured out anyway. So let's get first impressions of this movie. Ryan, what do you think upon revisiting booth? Yeah. I remember after watching. The first time we we left, and I remember being like, dude, I think I fucking love that movie that was kind of my main first impression I saw those many moons ago with you Jared was like dude, I think I love that. Because I already gone. I love Charlie Kaufman. But yeah, like, it is I would say incomprehensible almost I when you first see it. But in a good way like not like in dune, David Lynch's dune where you can't follow the story. It's like you can't fall the story. But you that's that's baked into the the the narrative, you know, you get that. This is like they're making a story within a story within a story when it gets convoluted kind of part of the charm, but you definitely on first viewing. I don't think can really follow it to a T. And that's probably not even the point. But yeah, like, I definitely left. There's just a lot of strange things in this movie. Obviously have you not seen it since. I watched it last night again when you. Only seen twice then. Yeah. Always seen it twice. But and and and I and whenever I make my list at the end of every year, you know, like that was my favorite movie of that. You're really was. Yeah. Even those my only time, but anyway, it stuck with me. But yeah, when I watch yesterday, I notice way more I got way more out of it. I think it's a brilliant movie. There's so much today. Sect it's not it's not for everyone. It's not like the most successful movie, obviously. But it's a filmmakers filmmakers movie, you know, writers writers movie, it's like an it's about literally everything I think like it's about life the universe living the perception of living other people relationships love death in that just it's it's so ballsy Dacia. And I can't believe it exists. So Bravo, Megan Ellison. Bravo, Charlie Kaufman and everyone involved for making it happen. But let's dissect it because I honestly ready for you. Oh, me the meaning.

"Banter met felony of the Hollywood reporter, Matt. Hello. So I'm going to do a quick lightning round of some news. Just because it's been kind of a newsy week on. We'll talk in depth about some other stuff. I'm going to just mention that James Gunn having been dumped by Disney after creating good guardians of the galaxy franchise for them is doing suicide squad a sequel starting from scratch for Warner Brothers. I would call that a big break for Warner Brothers potentially. They've had so much trouble with the DC universe. And it makes Disney look a little not that smart because they dumped him over old tweets. And I don't think a lot of people think that was a necessary move. Also, I will mention the venom has worked really well for Sony Pictures that is a marvel minor character, but marble itself, the Disney marvel Disney owned marble didn't really make it. And this is part of Tom Rothman strategy of finding and mining these more minor characters which Sony could really use. They have Spiderman, but they could always use more. And he's really. Put a lot of energy into that. The movie was shredded by critics and yet it's doing really well at the box office. So that's if I were Tom Rothman after having been nervous and taking on a partner out of nervousness. I would now be like I shouldn't have taken on the partner, and I'd be pretty happy. But let's talk about Warner media Warner media which used to be Time Warner that's a collection of media assets HBO Turner, which is TNT and TBS. And of course, the Warner studio which has a TV studio and a film studio. John stanky, the new head under AT and T now that this company has been bought and have the name or media. He announced a new streaming service coming on line and the fourth quarter of two thousand nineteen and that means a lot of things. I mean, they have a humongous library to exploit. This thing was gonna come online and the competition is just wild in the streaming space now. Yeah, the streaming wars are real. And this is something that by the end of next year. You're going to have this service. Warrener's? You're also going to have the Disney streaming service, which is going to have a big big offering a programming from Star Wars to Disney movies to original stuff. So this is all part of the transition. We're seeing from traditional linear television distribution to digital distribution direct to consumer models where these studios are no longer going through middlemen to get their content out. They are creating their own service or seeing what Netflix did. And they're leveraging these decades worth of library and original content to compete with net. Flicks. The ramifications of this are going to be game changing for everyone because net flicks is going to have to spend spend spend as they have been to keep up because they're going to be losing all this amazing content. I mean, these shows that like friends and west wing, and Gilmore girls all these shows that young people are Netflix shows are not there Warner Brothers shows, and they're going to be going away. So that goes away. The vast majority of Netflix viewership is still licensed content not originals. So they've got to replace that. And they've got to figure out what a post licensed content. Netflix services. Yeah, they're spending a lot to get there. And we'll see if they do before the stuff goes away as you said now, and meanwhile, Amazon which has been in the space is really trying to, you know, make sure they don't get completely left behind and apple is coming in. So we're looking at a world where instead of having a cable bundle rammed down our throats. We can pick and choose among a lot of streaming services, which may actually have stuff that we really want to watch. I mean as much as I would like to kind of slimmed down the Bill. I don't know if I'm going to be able to I want HBO I want net flicks. I like the originals even though I know most of the viewership is the older shows. And you know, I'm gonna want this that and the other. So after a while, you know, this brave new world where maybe we didn't need the bundle is gonna look like you just need a bundle of streaming server. Well, that's the big question is that the endgame of all this? There's going to be a certain number of streaming services that form whatever big bundle skinny bundle. There is that becomes successful. And that's the game plan right now for all of these studios to get into that bundle. And I think you're going to have to have Disney in that because of the franchises and the content that they have obviously net. Flicks will Hulu be a player there will Amazon prime I'm guessing. Yes, they'll have investments. Their Warner Brothers. It's Comcast goo announce a streaming service of their own, you know, some of the more minor players like the Viacom channels in the Paramount Pictures, what are they gonna do? Are they gonna go direct to consumer or not these are game changing and huge ramification decisions because they are the future of entertainment consumption. Yeah. Now, I'm going to turn to a part of intertwinement that is very challenge right now. And that is the quality adult film, and I'm talking about the kinds of movies made by Anna Purna, this is Megan Ellison daughter of Larry Ellison, who's a very wealthy young woman. She and her brother David have both been in this business. David going to a more commercial goals. She has been a patron of movies like zero dark thirty and FOX catcher, she is known to be quite an impulsive person. And in the last few days, it seems that that pipeline of money and believe me the industry is very thirsty for that pipeline of money is in jeopardy because she has dropped a couple of movies, including this one about Roger Ailes with major star, Shirley stare on Margot Robbie and more. You know, this is a Gretchen Carlson story. It seems like there's a huge pullback because they have lost so much money, partly because they tried to distribute their own movies, which is expensive. In difficult, and partly because the movies haven't been commercial, and it seems that Larry Ellison who's allowed her to finance this. And she she is an adult and has plenty of money. But somebody's put the brakes on this. And Hollywood is that. Yeah. And it gets to this question of distribution. We've seen this over and over with companies that tried to go into the distribution game companies like open road companies like STI to a smaller degree where it's really hard to distribute your own movies around the world, and even in the US, and it's a much different business from simply producing movies. And then having someone else foot the Bill and get all the theaters to play it and a few years ago. Megan Ellison decided that she wanted to go into distribution in the first movie. She did was this movie Detroit that completely flopped last summer. It was Detroit riots movie. It was a very expensive for that space. Bigalow. Movie and it didn't perform and. That I think was the canary in the coal mine for this business because distribution can be a wrecking ball because it costs a ton of money to put out a movie, and if you don't have the kind of money that a major studio has to front these losses. You really really got to have money coming in from elsewhere. And I think that's what the hurt. Larry Ellison is asking right now is how much of this money is going to be necessary. Yeah. Especially when these movies are not commercial. So as you mentioned other companies in this space have been very very challenged. And it just may be that that kind of, you know, relatively big budget production is not a thing anymore. Thank you, Matt. Thank you. That's Matt Bellamy editorial.

It is officially the hump day of the week and news isn't really stopping. Is it? Let's let's jump into it with a yesterday. It was reported that in a was dropping out of the untitled Fox News movie, and we heard it was over budgetary problems. And now we have learned a little bit more about this and it's kind of depressing news Ben tells about it. Yeah, it sounds like things add, Anna Aparna pictures may be a little bit more dire than anybody thought. So this company launched in twenty eleven and. Meghan Ellison who's the daughter of Larry Ellison, who's a billionaire who founded a company called oracle that runs Java and all sorts of things that are in the background of all of your computers. Like the mega Nelson is super rich and has been sort of like a savior for October driven filmmaking ever since she launched Anna per pictures because she's basically been backing all of these visionary filmmakers and giving them financing to make the movies that they wanna make that traditional studios would probably have a problem financing. So movies like the master and spring breakers, zero dark thirty and the grandmaster, and everybody wants some and tons of great films of the past few years have come through in a pictures, but now a new report at the rap says that the company seems to be in some financial trouble, and that might explain why they had to walk away from not only this untitled Fox News movie that you just mentioned, but also a Jennifer Lopez film called the hustlers at scores, which they also sort of parted ways from yesterday according to the rap. Megan Ellison is really. Valuating the studios film division and is expected to take a more active role in day to day development and production after a rocky eighteen months for the company. So they released Kathryn Bigelow period piece Detroit, and that movie despite costing forty million dollars to make only made about sixteen million dollars. So that's a I mean, apparently that film cost and Aparna pictures, tens of millions of dollars. So that's kind of a hard hit for a smaller company like that. There's been a lot of rumors going back and forth about whether they are in real trouble a spokesperson for Anna Purna denied any problems said that all these rumors are unfounded, and that everything is sort of business as usual at the company. But there are multiple sources from the rap that that say otherwise. Also there chief financial officer and the president of anti-burn pictures left the company not too long ago and the president of film. Chelsea. Bernard are Barnard. Excuse me. Just left that job too. So the, yeah, it's not. It's not great going over there at enterpreneur pictures right now. And I'm really hoping that they can pull out of this because like I said, they, this company has been sort of a bright light in a movie landscape that's full of superhero movies and sequels and stuff that we love. But I'm also I've been very glad to see their output over recent years, and I'm sure you guys probably agree with that. I can't imagine that any hard core film lover would. I'd be happy if Anna pictures went away yet. And before this I am mega Nelson was a producer on many films from, you know, autre filmmakers. It just seems like to me that this usually happens in Hollywood. You know, usually someone with, you know, the big money in Embiid comes to try to make a difference, and then there they find out that you know, general audience mainstream America doesn't want to see, you know a sixty million dollar Paul Thomas Anderson film and they they end up, you know, producing more mainstream movies do. Do you think this could happen to Ellison..

Would that do for you in that part? Why was that important? Because it got to the larger theatrical release. I mean, well, I wanted her to have a theatrical release because it is a film that is about the experience in experiencing it with other people around. There were a couple of people bidding on the movie, but Anna Purna which is making listens company. I don't. I don't want to say it's just her because there's a lot of great people there, but Megan called me and. She was like, I, she felt like this movie was a piece of cinematic history, which of course any director is going. That's you got, I'm listening. You're so pretty. Yeah, but that she blade out how she thought they could make everyone else understand that as well and that they, they had that that goal that meant that they would take a risk because the movie is beyond the themes in it. It's stylistically. Aesthetically, injust plot wise, it's a very different kind of film, and so it's not just that people haven't seen a film with as radical politics of this and after twenty, something years of being an artist, I've realized that it can't just be about what I'm talking about. No, I got it. It took a turn. Took a turn and so that. And so I've always artistically one. I need people to understand that I need to push boundaries in in. That's in my music as well. So it's a risky thing. So knowing that it was a risk, some folks that were talking to us about distributing it were talking that part up like, yeah, I don't know. Yeah, but boy, and then you know, just the regular old like, well, the market for this is limited. You know what they mean by that? Is that mainly black casts? Yes. Meaning they have no idea what popular culture is all about in the first place. Yeah. And so if they just seem like they are, I would agree. I talk about that when you hear that. Well, I mean, it's been like this for a while. Definitely with music music. For instance, is I think music is about, you know, the our art in general has to be about passion and. So much of. Music throughout the last hundred years, at least once folks that have been going through struggle, got access to be able to make recordings. Those recordings, touch the folks that listen to him, no matter where they're from what their background is, and because that history of struggle that those things that folks are coming through being represented in music has created, creates that passion that you want from something which is like an an and. And so I think there is the, there's something to art that comes out of black culture, which is a culture that is created that that much of it is connected to struggle because of capitalism because of how capitalism works. That art is created to struggle, which is also created to passion. And I think that there's something more than like a tourism that's happening. There's people wanting to connect to that feeling of trying to be free of dealing.
