Fifteen hundred things. Oh, I remembered what the thing was last night you like all add that. This is just another random non bruins. We didn't really talk about the shit show in Arizona right it reminded me Arizona data. On but I would like to I know that we would just get. We'll talk the this is just a two minute round but I would like to speak for Bruins fans and oilers fans if I I'm not trying to speak for all of us, but I'd like to speak for. I'm GonNa go with like ninety percent of us do not hire pita Chia pet don't do it. Peter. Torelli will not help the situation. He'll all in the first couple of years or the first year it might look like he might help the situation. I can almost guarantee you like I said the best thing I heard all we is like. I and maybe when he gets ready to Taylor Hollow, get more for him than Tyler Sagan you. So just I'm just looking at you Arizona I'm looking at you don't do it. It is not worth. It looks Nice. Looks Nice. It's like one of those really expensive cars that looked great but have really shitty transmissions and you're always fixing it all the time don't do it. Don't do it. I did want to mention the GM though that whole draw. Yeah. Yeah. CHICA. Chica obviously did not like what was going on I. The the Arizona coyotes amount mistaken have new ownership and I'm not sure If they were his guy. So he might have been on the overlap when he came and he's a huge analytics guy too but. I don't know exactly the the the whole thing I'm paraphrasing here but The both side weren't happy. He asked to leave the organization says what you can't you. You know while while you can't talk to other teams Bob Law they could've really really done something serious to him in in the whole kind of contract because you're not supposed to talk to other teams and apparently he had conversations with New Jersey and they they didn't want to bring him in at a a GM or an assistant. GM. But. Later to try to sneak away I'll how was all worded but it was just very weird. But the timing for me was even weirder that they would just about to. Get into the bubbles fulltime if they weren't already there and and he wasn't he wasn't there and decided right before they started this whole playoffs that that he was he quit he resigned whatever. It was like two days before they left to go to Edmonton. Yeah. Yeah. Basically there to conflict conflicting statements.

"Of data some stories. Some don't we and each week show with one of those two sense the hot take down rabbit. The whole of the week neal started off today. I would like to talk about one of Chad's favorite topics hockey So far this season the two best scores in the NHL L. are on the same team Connor mcdavid and Leon Dry Seidl of the Edmonton oilers. Let's check favorite team. I think mcdavid is on pace two. Have One hundred and thirty four points. That's goals plus assists And Dry Silos on pace for one hundred and thirty one one hundred thirty points or more is a lot for anybody much less to teammates. So our colleague Terence Doyle wrote a few weeks ago That only twenty three players in history have ever had that many points in the season. Only four sets of teammates have ever done that at the same time Nobody has done it at all. Since nineteen ninety-six when Mario lemieux and Yar Amir Yager Auger who only recently retired which is crazy and I think is still playing in the Czech Republic I saw last night. It's still playing. Yeah it's kind of wild Yager had one hundred. I'm forty nine points and lemieux had one hundred sixty one and only seventy games that year But those were the last two to one hundred thirty in the same season as teammates So that's great great company for Dry Seidel and mcdavid Just for a little more context though. There's a lot more scoring in the league when most of these other one hundred and thirty points seasons were recorded accorded So if you look at hockey reference they have this thing called adjusted stats. They normalized every season to an environment of six goals per game for both teams. And if you look at that so dry seidel and mcdavid are above one hundred and thirty adjusted points this season and the only other set of teammates in history three to have one hundred and thirty adjusted points in the same season were lemieux in Yager in the ninety six season so we basically established that this is like the hockey equivalent of Lebron James and Anthony. Any Davis on the Lakers. What I think is really interesting about this? Is that unlike the Lakers who were just dominating the NBA right now. The oilers are actually not that good good despite having maybe the two best players in the League they only rank twenty third out of the thirty one. NHL Teams in hockey references simple rating system. That sort of their Schedule adjusted goal differential metric. And they only give the oilers a fifty four percent chance of making the playoffs. How is that even possible to have such to great players? Headlining your team and potentially miss the playoffs. That kind of thing would never happen in basketball but as we talked about on the show before individual Joel players have a lot more influence in basketball than they do and other sports probably especially hockey. That's really strange to me. Because there's the same number of players on the Play baseball there's one more in hockey. There's the goalie Anita staters five players. Yes thank you always need the like basics of hockey like you know just how. You're really warming up to this I am. Hey you should have exactly but that is weird right. So Claire Little Weird but so you have to think about mcdavid and dry Seidel only play about twenty two minutes per game a piece so out of sixty minutes in a hockey ocoee game whereas Lebron James Anthony Davis play like thirty five minutes a game out of a possible forty eight so there's a lot more time in a game in which there's neither of them on On the ice in fact more than half the game so they overlap for about eighteen and a half of the twenty two minutes per game according to the site natural stat trick dot com. That's a good one for the research to all checkout but they spent thirty four minutes a game with neither neither of their stars on the ice and when that happens the team scoring drops from about six goals per sixty minutes to only one point four goals per sixty minutes and when they don't have either of them in there so these are two guys that work really well together and they sort of amplify each other's personal stats. But maybe it doesn't actually really help the team or doesn't represent the best use of the team's resources and you know the oilers coach. Dave Tippett has actually may be sensed this because he's been playing the pair apart from each other more in recent games it hasn't really worked. They won last night. But before that they were on a pretty bad skid but it's kind of another idea a four. How do you turn these two great players into more than the sum of their parts instead of less which is sort of what they've been So far now the oilers are also really hamstrung by lack of depth So hockey reference has the stat goals created which estimates the no surprise. How many goals you create As an individual individual and they think that thirty nine percent of Edmonton's goals as a whole team have been created by just those two guys mcdavid Dreidel. And that's actually if if it if it holds up it's tracking to be the largest share of any teams goals created by its top two players since nineteen forty-three which the beginning of the original original six era in the NHL. Last year's oil is really high in this to thirty seven percent of their goals or created by their top two and that was second all time behind nineteen ninety nine mighty ducks of Anaheim Which you might remember had tame Salani and Paul Kariya as it's really like it was a two man team? It's very similar to this oilers. Not You might remember. How can I forget? How could anyone forget the ducks of that? And you're not into that team you were of course they had great jerseys basically I mean pretty much nobody else on the team has really been contributing offense especially their defensemen. Haven't really scored many points at all. They're not really limiting opponent shot qualities and they're playing good defense and goaltending has been mediocre at best. The oilers are also still paying the price for a series of notably bad trades made made by their former GM. Peter Torelli And so they really haven't done much to build up around this core of mcdavid and dry cycle but I think it's interesting that the oilers are even even despite all of those bad moves. They're kind of a victim of the sports that they play in. Because if we go back to the Lakers and look at them as an example it was pretty well acknowledged that La hey had terrible management as well during the Magic Johnson era and it's not really clear rob Pelinka is some kind of visionary. GM either but the Lakers again have been wildly successful this year. And it's mainly because Lebron and Anthony Davis are one of the best duos in the history of basketball so to me the says in basketball. You could do a lot of things wrong but as long as you form one of these cores of to. MVP caliber stars. You can build one of the best teams in the NBA. They almost never lose. But in hockey you can have the same caliber players and struggle to win more often than you lose. This is all really interesting to me and I admit how you build. All the good hockey team is a complete mystery to me is also get set. Something we talk about a lot in the office and on the show comes up quite a bit which is sort of the structure sure of sport and whether it favors individual athletes versus the team as a whole it makes me think we should do a quiz at five thirty eight where we ask people do care about. Individual excellence or eighteen sports. How much random is essentially a sport select selector? We do team selector sometimes but like a sports electoral be fun to help expose people to these dynamics dynamics essentially design your perfect sports. We'll find the spirit. It's badminton surprise. Oh no so. I'm taking those over. I'm this when we did the the World Cup quiz about which team mm you should support. I kept taking it until I got the team. I wanted which was not the actually the team I wanted Spain and then I ended up supporting England anyway so I I guess it really didn't matter but that would be really fun. Hey thanks for talking to us about hockey You know I did for you as a special treat yet. You're always thinking of me. I think that's a good place to and this week. Show thank you so much between.

I'm talking about a study that just came out a study from the center for the study study of women in television and film and it did find some increases in the representation of women both on and offscreen. We're not talking like the world's problems resolved. A seventy percent of the women that were involved are whites. That's one thing but the study found that the number of speaking characters female speaking characters dresses up five percent from two thousand eighteen to nineteen versus two thousand seventeen to eighteen and the it's not just minor characters the percentage of major your female characters grew from forty percent to forty five percent so that represents progress and i think that these numbers are a direct result of of some of the inclusivity pushes that we've seen over the past couple of years connected to the me too movement. Yeah i mean let's again. Most of these seventy percent of the characters are white so it's not that inclusive -clusive. I think a lot of groups are very underrepresented and behind the camera t._v. Creators writers directors producers et cetera. That's thirty one percent. What are women of versus twenty eight percent so i wouldn't call that a great leap forward <hes> but you know it's something and as usual than the the biggest group in that is producers because for some reason women have always been over represented relatively speaking in that role so yeah ah but still as the director of the center for the study of women in television and film she says for example this is a historic high in terms of women directors twenty a six percent but she says historic high still means men outnumber women three to one certainly is an improvement however we saw some news break this past week week from hollywood reporter an interesting story about what's going on behind the scenes of the crazy rich asians sequels and this is an interesting project because it was such a leap forward for representation in the industry. It was the first all asian cast a major studio movie in twenty five years. The movie did huge box office worldwide and a lot of the stars of the movie have gone on to be cast in other big studio franchises which is how the representation movement is supposed to work. Give people the opportunity they perform and then they get other opportunities so we saw this past week. The writer of the crazy rich asians movie the co writer adel limb. She walked away. Hey from the sequel because warner brothers offered her substantially less money than the co writer of the movie who is a white male and her her rationale and coming forward about this in an interview was that if she can't get parody in salary for the sequel to a hit movie she doesn't think anyone can get parody. If you're a person of color every woman trying to get to the same level as her male white co writer and she didn't give any any specific figures but the starting offers from warner brothers were eight hundred thousand to a million dollars for him and about one hundred ten thousand dollars for her now he's much more experienced experienced writer but this is not the first installment of this and she was credited as a co writer of this original film so i would say that is not a great look doc. <hes> now this co-writer the the the white male peter torelli. I hope i'm pronouncing his name right. Forgive me if not he actually offered to split some of his salary with with her. She said no yeah her argument was that it shouldn't be the co writers responsibility to make up the difference so to speak and that the the person of color or female writer was being treated as what she called soy sauce. Which was you know you have a dash of color to sprinkle on the script and you know you don't recognize this person as bringing their their life history and bringing their perspective in the same way that you value the white male co writer <hes> whether you agree with that or not this is her opinion and it does look pretty bad when you think about the fact that this is not the first movie in the franchise is this is this is them going into the sequels to this movie trying to get the same creative team on board. Warner's had a problem with this. This happened a couple of months ago and they've tried to bring in other writers to <hes> to bring that asian american perspective and they haven't been able to actually went back to this writer to try to get her on board and she wouldn't do it yeah. They seem to be sort of in no particular rush the filmmakers anyway so if you're looking forward to the crazy reg- asians insys sequels planned.

"So some reaction for the vendors and game trailer, maybe bordering on some spoiler speculation. And also talking you talk about an Easter egg hidden in that captain marvel trailer as well, this is slash film editor in chief, Peter Surata and Jenny mantis podcast is slash foam. Weakened editor bad, omen and writer whiter. And Billy everyone. You know yesterday it was raining here in LA today. It's a sunny day. This has been your your daily podcast weather report from. Yeah. For me. Okay. Now, let's move on. Because there's a lot to get to today, including that huge avengers trailer, bow before we get to the, you know, the comic book goodness, we'll start off with crazy rich agents, which turns out they're going to be filming the sequels back to back itchy. What's going on here? Yeah. So we knew that a sequel to crazy which Asians was already being lit in in the works. And that would be a sequel adapting Kevin Kwan's fellow follow up novel, China Mitch girlfriend, but now the producers crazy rich, Asians, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson revealed that they'll be shooting too crazy which Asian sequels back to back in that will adopt rich girlfriend and the third book in the crazy bitch, Asians trilogy. It is called rich people problems. So the script is currently being worked on by Adele limb and Peter Torelli. But this will mean that fans. Will have a longer wait upfront because the film's won't likely be able to start shooting until twenty twenty. But by the time they do finish. It will get them both out a lot sooner. And that's because the reason for the scheduling is because the cast now is in huge demand. Henry Golding, as you know is starring in big movies left. And right. He was in a simple favor this summer. In addition to crazy, rich, Asians, Constance Wu has scored a Golden Globe nomination for her role in crazy. Rich, Asians Aquafina has also blown up as has civilian Mizuno and Gemma Chan and Michelle Yeoh is Michelle Yeoh. So everyone's busy Jon CHU is also working on the in the heights movie as well. And once he wrapped that he will start working on both crazy, which Asian sequels likely by two thousand twenty this seems crazy to me because like until now I feel like it's all always been like big huge blockbusters the shot back to back against vaccines or two and three started. It we have the Lord of the rings true. The matrix the hobbit the, you know, the avengers the last two avengers films. This is the probably the first way romantic comedy big enough to shoot to have a back back sequel. Yeah, I think you're right. I can't think of any other romantic comedies or anything. That's like non action film or a Y franchise being shot back to back like this. That to me is just crazy. It's crazy. How popular this? This film. Franchise is. Yeah. Yeah. It's exciting. Speaking of sequels, we have word that Warner Brothers already planning in sequel. Even though the first film has not made its big splash. Brad. Tell us about it. Big splash, puns fun. Yes, man is already having a sequel in the works because the box office tracking is already looking so good. Plus, this is a DC extended universe movie. So obviously, we hope this is going to be a big franchise and turn into one of the more successful parts of a comic book universe that has otherwise had its fair share of stumbles. There's it's not anything official yet. But they're just are talks happening behind the scenes doesn't seem like it's been Greenland, or at least we haven't heard about it being green lit yet. But they're early bus rock lament has been pretty decent so far. So it's not surprising. That Warner broS wants to get a jump start on aqua man and ride any potential good buzz that might come out of it. As we know next week. They're going to be having the early screenings of the movie for Amazon prime members. Which is also a good sign means they have confidence in the movie, and they wanna get word of mouth going from fans who who see it a week before it hits theaters everywhere else..

"And we got him out five nothing maybe five or six nothing at home. And it was like. Wow. Now, we're going to Nashville, and it it's almost like what's going on here. And I think before you knew it. We it scored three goals and floor games than it was you know, that was really it was an eye opener that, you know, things have changed like we weren't just going to come back because we'd come back the years before we weren't just going to win because we had one before we need. Did something different. We needed to change. You know, I think we did we were to stuck in just sticking with it. And I think, you know, obviously last year, you know, a lot of things went wrong last year it didn't help but we didn't have a goalie for half the year. But even beside that we didn't we just didn't modify are the game changes at the one thing. I think people don't recognize. And maybe the media doesn't check up on quickly enough to the game changes every year right in front of your eyes. Guys will good player of the year ago aren't good in guys weren't gutter now better like things change, and you have to adapt to them and the ability to doubt your game to what working, and is, you know, where we're at right now, we've got a we've gotta find a little bit of a different third of blueprint than we had before. I think we had you know, we had more of a veteran team in the years past and we played a certain way and it. It worked great. But doesn't mean the always been work. And I think that's where we're at now is trying to you know, change up a little bit. And hopefully have some more successful in forward. Stand you ever favorite Stanley Cup. What would it be two thousand fifteen just because you feel like maybe had more of your fingerprints all over it. Not for that reason. But I do think the fifteen Cup like I don't wanna say that was such a grind that was so hard to win that year. I mean, like the two thousand ten team it's almost like everything sort of went. It was almost like the magical season, right? Like, we everything went, right? And then in two thousand thirteen that was the short year, and we we came out of the gate like game busters with twenty four games without a loss to start the year. So that was sort of like that that never happens rarely is the team that it could from day one. Do they end up winning the Cup? Usually they you know, they stumble in the second round of third round. You know, it's like that never happens where the team the number one team from game on go all the way to post and win the Cup. But the fifteen was like it was just so it was such a grind. I mean that the. Tampa finally, you know in Anaheim series before that like there was just so many so many touching Bill games. And it just so many overtime triple overtime games. Like, it was such a grind to get there that I think when you finally when we finally want it it was at home. We won the first two cups on the road. You know? So I think it was almost like a sense of relief that I two cups more like joy like while. It's incredible. What a how much fun? That's what that third. One was just like, oh, I got thank God. Like, this is such a grind. So you know, wasn't so much because my fingerprint is just kinda way at all when when about and now, you know, we've had a couple of years. We haven't had said he kind of realize people don't realize how hard it is the win is so hard to get all the way to the Cup and then win it remember talking to Peter Torelli after the two thousand thirteen sign. It was like in the summertime, and he said, you know, we played just as many games that you did. And we had just assured two summers. You got guys won the Cup with anything, you know. And and it was like, you know, the way we won that Cup two..

"Note. I miss Joe, what do you miss Lennon miss the voice of how he rose to pitch curve it on the ground the third backing up Frazier. One Hanson throws the box. Go wonder what how real announced as opposed to that guy and a half of the Red Sox? Joe Castiglione Castiglione the voice of don't pick on Red Sox announcers, how you doing how he rose I'm doing very well. And Joe Joe Castiglione is one of the great see I get your alluding to when he fell out of a seat calling a play. He did fall out. Great. So what what do you make of these Red Sox and winning the listen, I'm impressed. They totally rebuilt this team. There was one player on the roster from their last series win five years ago. Isn't that something that you can totally turn a roster around in that small amount of time and and win the whole thing? And I know that most of the season I kept telling people don't go to sleep on the Astros. Don't forget about Houston. I really thought the Astros were the best team. And the way the Red Sox. Systematically, dismantled them in the American League championship series. I think made us realize that this clearly was the Red Sox year from start to finish. They were the best and they are in their title, you aren't alone. How he also thought the Astros who the best I really did. But what about the, you know, the New York New York stuff after they won how he's in a little cheap. Well, I can tell you this that from my recent perspective of having been with the Mets at Fenway park. Visitors clubhouse. Where the exit on his way to the bus that. That's you know, I don't know if you don't walk past the Red Sox clubhouse. I don't think from where they were. But maybe it did actually now that I think of it. But the thing I don't think that Aaron judge intentionally Blair that to irritate the Boston Red Sox. But, but if he did what I mean, if you're gonna tell me that that was the difference between the Yankees and the Red Sox because Aaron judge was blaring New York, New York's so be it. If the Red Sox took it that way. And apparently, they did they got the last laugh, and they were they were singing and playing it and shouting their clubhouse whether reporting champagne, but you know, what I worked in Boston. There was always an inferiority complex in Boston. Not only in sports applied in sports because the Red Sox never won anything, Bruce. So yes, the Yankees are always the dominant, but in other fields of endeavor, be it law or medicine. You know, you could just feel New England saying, you know, we're. We're pretty good here. But we're not New York. And I just thought this was another example of this inferiority complex towards New York that they're playing just won the World Series. Now, they talk about the Yankees. Have you been to Philadelphia? Same thing. Really? And I don't blame them for that. In fact, I love them for that. Because it speaks to their inherent passion in in. What sports is all about in those cities. It's so different in the northeast. Then the way it is in other parts of the country, even the mid west with all those passionate cubs fans, for example, supposedly the best fans in baseball the cardinals fan. I mean, boring as all heck out there compared to the passion that we see not only in New York, but in Boston and Philadelphia and those latter two cities. Yeah, they do have that little chip on their shoulder when it comes to New York, but I love that. Because it intensifies the rivalry. Let's get let's get to Brodie van wagon as the the next GM of the matches. This the the players taking over the league. Now, this is the beginning of a kind of a shift in who's running the show. I I don't I don't think so it is as out of the box outside the box and idea as I think they've ever had as an org. Organization, and I kinda love that in and of itself now, whether he turns out to be the right guy remains to be seen. He's had a long standing relationship with the Mets given some of the clients that he's signed a long-term yields here. It's not unprecedented. You know about Bob Myers with a Golden State Warriors, a former agent and in hockey. I remember Brian Burke was a player agent then became a successful general manager leading the Anaheim ducks to the Stanley Cup some years ago. So it can be done. And I think Peter Torelli of of the Boston Bruins was a player agent to and they wanna Stanley Cup under his watch. So it's not unprecedented for an agent to come in and be in fact, the primary decision maker in the front office. And I think this this is gonna be a very very interesting thing to watch because it's it's fresh. It's new and just based on that alone. I like it. I think it's just fascinating that you know, he was representing Jacob degrom. And when he represented the ground. I want eighty two zillion and now negotiate with Jacob degrom and will tell the grams Asian, hey, he ain't worth squat. Well, it's really funny, isn't it? Because just at the all star break last year Brody was saying publicly and rather emphatically that you know, either the Mets should give them an extension or maybe they should trade him. And and certainly from Jacob degrom standpoint east thirty years old now, and he's still has two more years where the Mets have him under team control. So all that stuff that Brody was saying on Jacob's behalf. Now works on Brodie van wagons behalf as a club executive, and it's gonna be really interesting to see some of those dynamics play out not only as far as it pertains to Jacob degrom. But you and assess but as Noah Syndergaard taught Frazier's van wagon and client bandwagoning clients, all these guys. Yeah. Wow. How much flexibility you think he's going to have in terms of keeping and acquiring players. Well, I think any general manager coming into a new scenario has gone through the interview process with a vision and a plan that was put forth on paper, and then in person, and along those lines you want to have a certain level of some panico with the front office and ownership so that they're on the same page in terms of how they go about player procurement and how much of that has to do with free agency, and what that means to the budget. And I my gut feeling here. Is that they're going to be fairly aggressive? I mean, look if people think that, you know, now, they're going to be in play for Bryce Harper in Manny Machado, I wouldn't necessarily expect that, but I think that they probably gave and wagon and assurances given his contacts within the game and his ability to make deals from the other side. Of course that he'll probably be given a significant amount of resources to go out and improve this team. At least, I certainly hope. So all right. How he always always great talking to you. How's your golf game right down there in Florida, Barry, you know, what? I mean, you know, Tom Seaver was my idol growing up. Right. But I think I'm taking it a little too far when my handicap is his uniform. Oh my God. So I'm going to give myself a little bit of slack. But maybe if if buddy Harrelson had been my number one a idol growing up he wore number three. Much better. All right. Keep your head down hit him straight. Thanks, howie. Oh, that's how you would think. Coming up next now that bites a little mishap involving teeth and glue weightier this one, plus who wouldn't want an extra thousand bucks your next chance. Coming up at ten. Oh, five right here on seven ten W O R right now..

"Okay. Let's let's move on to our next bit of news and that is the needless Jacob's ladder remake which is coming next year. Chris, you're at this up for the site. I try not to be too negative about remakes. I am definitely not anti remake. I do think if someone has a really interesting new take on an old story, it could turn out really well, especially the harsh on her. There have been some excellent horror makes like you know, the thing in the fly that said, we really do not need a Jacob's ladder remake, but we're getting one anyway. It'll be out in February of two thousand nineteen. The idea for this remake has been kicking around for a little while. It was officially announced in two thousand fourteen and then. Ser word of it sort of die down for a while. I think we all were just hoping if we stopped giving it attention, it would just go away. But no, apparently it's made and it's going to be released relatively soon. February is really not that far away. David m Rosenthal is directing it. You know, whatever, Jeff bueller wrote the script. He also wrote the midnight, meat train. That's, you know, whatever. Look, maybe this will turn out good. I will reserve full judgement until it's actually out and I see it. But as of now, my knee jerk reaction is this is a bad idea because the original film is really good, and I don't really know how you would really even improve that, especially because you know that film it came out in nineteen ninety. I feel like so many films since then have borrowed from us, especially like the six cents, a lot of horror movies with twists and stuff like that really are drawing from this movie. So it's sort of like already saturated into the zeitgeist. So to remake it now seems foolish. But again, we'll see what happens. You know, who needs to fund co pop the guy that did midnight, meat train? Yes. Okay. Let's move on to Chris rich Asians. They have announced a sequel is moving forward with filmmaker. Jon m CHU returning to direct itchy, would we know? Yes. So after the debut of crazy, rich, Asians, vastly exceeded expectations at the box office. This weekend. One, our brothers is moving forward with the crazy bitch, Asian sequel director. Jon m CHU is set to return as well as the first film's writers Peter Torelli and Adele, Kim. So this is a public gonna adapt Kevin Kwan's second book in the trilogy just called China, rich girlfriend, and I won't go into the plot of that because it will spoil movie for people haven't seen crazy rich Asians, but there is a trilogy that the this movie will potentially like or the series adapt. And the first film actually laid the groundwork for the trilogy as well with amid credit sequence sequence featuring Harry Shum Jew. Senior in case you're saw that sequence in your very confused, but what it all meant so it will focus more on conscious as well as a Jemma Chan's character you mentioned this is based on a book. I mean this this whole series was a Trojan of books, and I know when Netflix original trying to get this, they were offering to green late at trilogy, and the filmmakers decided to go theatrical over with one movie rather than go for this trilogy now that they have, they made that decision. It looks like it might have paid off. What do you think h? Yeah, I think that this could definitely set the set the groundwork for a trilogy theatrically, and while they haven't green lit a third film yet with them moving forward with a sequel. So soon after the movie, the first movie release, it's possible that we'll see like a whole whole franchise at this whole crazy rich franchise. That's what Hollywood once you know, don't chew. You can make interesting fund co pop, maybe. I don't know. I was also thinking I forgot to mention before not to keep this about fun co pop Durra director series out like j.j Abrams because fun cope. I feel like his hair in and glasses have an icon. He's one of the directors of today. They think still has, you know that kind of Spielberg iconic look to him and there isn't a j.j Abrams went already. I can already imagine it. I feel like I'm getting some sort of deja vu before going into our last story..
