"Rates and customizable coverages for your business vehicles more at progressive commercial dot com And by Sony Pictures classics presenting the phantom of the open a new comedy about the worst golfer in British open history coming soon to a theater near you Now to Ukraine According to the Kyiv school of economics the war has so far caused up to $600 billion in economic damage So who's going to pay for that One logical answer might be Russia The U.S. Europe and Japan have all frozen hundreds of billions of dollars worth of Russian assets so why not use that to cover rebuilding Our next guest argues we might want to think twice about it Mathieu favas is finance correspondent for The Economist and joins us good morning Good morning Several countries in the U and numerous politicians have said if Russia is causing $600 billion worth of damage to Ukraine Russia should pay for that And we should seize its assets to make that happen My first question about that is is that legal at least in the U.S. It is mostly not You need to look at assets and product assets separately In general to be able to legally seize private assets you need a criminal conviction in the courts This is a lot of effort time and money spent in court So that's the price I said For the stat assets they're not frozen So they need to be for them first before being seized if they are ever sealed But then most of them generally are covered by what we call the so many minty so their protected from lawsuits But they are in the U.S. there's a law that gives sometimes arisen for seizing assets And typically it doesn't give the right to see the assets but there is one exception that was added in 2001 which allows the U.S. government to see the sets if it's at war with another country But right now in America is not that well with Russia and actually the government is quite at pains to emphasize that that's not the case If the ocean Europe can not use confiscated or seized or frozen Russian assets to make Russia pay for what it's done in Ukraine is there some other way to compel Russia to pay Well there's two other ways that are being contemplated or considered Russia earns an enormous amount of money every day from selling oil and gas to Western countries You could try and target this amount of money either by imposing a tariff on Russia and gas exports and that's an option that as argued in front of the G 7 the second possibility would be to hold the revenues that Russia earns into digital bank accounts In this core count and basically then force Russia to pay some of this money to Ukraine and exchange for this money then to go to Russia I mean what do you see as the most likely outcome here The most likely outcome I think is that things stay as they are that the west carries on trade to freeze more Russian assets Especially the one that are the most visible so that the yolks the private planes the Russian Central Bank reserves will remain frozen I think it will be hard This quite big obstacles for then the confiscation to happen I suspect there may be some force of some attempts to do that but I don't expect they will be very successful Guess what I expect rather is for the west to contribute to the recognition of Ukraine because of course conditions are likely Mathieu favas is The Economist's finance correspondent Thank.

"The show is an original take by these people. This is happening. What's your name? Quote here is this interesting at all. So he's a milkman? A memoryless milkman, yeah, apparently. He can't remember nothing, Tim. I remember nothing. This is the latest high profile project from Sony T Sony Pictures TV and PlayStation productions, a series adaptation of the last of us has been ordered at HBO. Oh wait, John Doe, so there's a milkman and an ice cream man. I guess that makes sense. 'cause John Doe is not sweet tooth. Will he be will it turn out he is, you know what I mean? I think they mentioned already ice cream man, right? I mean, they did, but Kevin, he's wearing a mask, maybe he takes off the mask at some point and it's Anthony Mackie, you know what I mean? And it turns out sweet tooth was all in his head. John Doe was roadkill. I don't know if he was a milkman though, yeah. Classic classic character roka. I love twisted metal. I always have. I don't know what this can look like. I don't know if a game makes sense in this modern times or whatever. But I've always loved it. Nice job. So he's trying times. But just metal black, I think, was the perfect kind of edge lord. Here's some fucking Rolling Stones painted black for your 12 year old asked him. It was the first time I ever heard the word motherfucker in the video game. I thought that was really impressive. Last night. Yeah, definitely. But even before that, I loved, obviously, twisted metal one and two. But I even had fun with three and four that were made by 99 or whatever, and those were really bad, but there was fun to be had. And I liked the idea of them simultaneously doing twisted metal black and then twisted metal small brawl on the PS1 where it was like all the characters if they were little kids with remote control cars like there's a fun to twisted metal that comes from the ridiculous premise of who's this dude calypso and he's gonna give you your greatest wish if you kill a bunch of people in crazy cars and I'm like, you know what? Sign me up. Action comedy on peacock. There's no way this could be good. But you know what? I'm fucking here for it. Dude, didn't ask my thing is I love being wrong. I love being wrong. I remember when they announced peacemakers, like, whatever. And then, of course, peacemakers fantastic or whatever. Like, I love being wrong. This paragraph is just like, the more I read it, the more it unseals me on even one, 'cause I love Anthony Mackie. You fucking get me, come on now. I love him and everything I've seen him in. So then it's like the half hour action comedy. We'll see Mackie played John Doe a smart ass milk man. Who talks as fancy draws with no memory of his past oh chunk is a once in a lifetime. It's like, oh my God. Make his wish of finding community come true, but only if he can survive the good luck. Good luck, good luck, and I will fly. One of my first year on the games cast was that there's going to be more good than bad video game media adaptations, whether TV or movies. And I don't know where this one's going to fall, but I will say that so far this year, I think I'm right. The cupboard show was awesome. I don't know if you've checked it out, Greg, but it's on Netflix. Super cool. Super fun, great use of the IP different than I think people would be expecting from it, but it's really damn good. A charted, better than we thought it was going to be. And it's like, with this, this going to fall in that line, I don't know, but I do think the PlayStation studios knows that it has something right now and it should not muddy the waters so early. Like we have last of us now next year, getting pushed back. I'm sorry. I glanced through the chat in the one and only Jeff grubb tweets or I put some in the chat. Anthony make you a career decision..

"Marvel Studios. Now make some of the biggest movies in the world. But that is a relatively new business model for marvel. For most of its history, marvel was a company that sold paper or plastic to people. Paper comic books are plastic toys, selling physical retail products was the marvel business model. And, you know, that arguably started to change a little bit in 1993. This is when marvel films was created, not to make movies, but to license marvel superheroes, so other companies could make movies. The idea was that marvel would go find some big Hollywood studio. That studio would pay marvel some money to use a superhero and then make a big expensive superhero movie. Which conveniently would also be like a big, expensive superhero commercial for marvel's comics and toys, the real marvel business back in the 90s. And so licensing superheroes to movie studios was this low risk, no brainer for marvel and licensed they did. To 20th Century Fox, marvel licensed the movie rights to the X-Men. Mutant and proud. Chin chin. To Universal Pictures? The hulk. And to Sony Pictures went marvel's most popular superhero of all. I will never forget these words. Spider-Man. With great power. Comes great responsibility. Our episode today is born from this Spider-Man movie deal made around the year 2000 between marvel and Sony Pictures. And the basic details of the deal are this. Sony would pay marvel $10 million for every Spider-Man movie that Sony wanted to make. Marvel would get 5% of the movie revenue, Sony and marvel would split money from the Spider-Man movie toys. It was the right business decision in the moment. Marvel didn't make movies, they sold comic books and toys. What do they need the Spider-Man film rights for? Of course, later, they may regret this decision. And this is what we shall henceforth call the Spider-Man problem. The Spider-Man problem is not unique to marvel. Any company can make the right decision in the moment without knowing the mess it will create in the future. It just so happens, Spider-Man turned into a particularly entertaining mess. Hello and welcome to planet money. I'm waylon Wong. And I'm Kenny.

"That's what I'm hoping for, even though people would probably be like another Spider-Man game from Sony and I would be like, yes, give it to me. Yeah, why not? Yeah, concrete Genie is great. Yeah. That game was so dark and Gritty, but then also extremely colorful and really pretty. I'm very excited to see what they're going to do next. Yeah. I would love it to be one of those two IPs. Though, I will say just for fairness, Sony Pictures also made the emoji movie and behind are behind the hotel Transylvania series. So if it's an adaptation, it could be a lot of things. But we'll see. We'll see what happens. And then last but not least, we know that London studio is working on some sort of game that has online or multiplayer elements to it. They are the devs behind blood and truth and then previously the getaway. And go ahead. I was just going to say, which tells me that they might be making a flagship PSVR two. Yeah, yeah. That's very possible. I will say the getaway I believe there's an anniversary coming out for it soon. It's reaching a 20 year anniversary, either this next year. So yeah, next year will be the 20th anniversary. So the idea of reviving a classic PlayStation franchise like the getaway could be pretty potential there in my book. Last but not least, before we get into what our wild wishes are, I want to just mention, you guys let me know if you feel I'm off base. I feel like this does count. They said PlayStation studios. And PlayStation studios does publish exclusives from other companies. So stuff like Returnal and destruction all stars and things like that that are worked in partnership with ex dev and then published through PlayStation studios. I think that means we shouldn't count stuff like kotor that's being made by asper media. But I do think it means we should cover the three games that they have from haven, Jade Raymond studio. Demolition game studio, which is that the game that's being made by the former Call of Duty devs, the black op steps. And then fire walk studios, which is that studio that has Call of Duty and destiny and battlefield and like 12 other different games sort of people at their head. I think all three of those games that are publishing exclusive partnerships should be counted here. What about that count, Koji pro? It would count death Death Stranding was published by PlayStation on there. It was if they were working on a new PlayStation project. Which we have no idea if they are. So we could say, if you want to pull them in as a possibility, that could work. So I'll add those to the list, mostly so red, you don't have to work through the mishmash of things I just said. But with that list, that puts us at about 14 games. So we have 9 more to pull in. So ideally, I would like two from each of you, I'll give to, and then I have a few from the audience that we can pull. Okay. You miss out? Actually, in your original rundown? I did, yeah. I was like, I got this all set. And then you all helped me by mentioning a thing. So thank you. With that in mind, Matt, I'm going to start with you. What is a game either an existing PlayStation property or a specific studio, you hope is working on a game, give me a genre give me in anything? I said at the top of the show that I know the answer and I wasn't lying. It is a 12 through 25 ape escape four through whatever 25 is. We are owed at least that many ape escape games and it is a lot a lot. We are owed a lot of them, and so that's the rest of the list. They're making up for it. They're going to give us one every 6 months until we hit 25. Okay, but hear me out. I was going to say a scape, so I think we can combine this because my running belief is that team a Soviet should get to do an ape escape game. Oh yeah, that'd be fun. They're working on 8 escape and who's making Astros playroom two. They're too involved. Mark. Okay. All the while. They're the only Japan studio. So I think why not give them two games? Sure. If it saw me, I can work on 14 games at once, then, you know. Another studio can do at least two. Matt, were you a big ape escape fan or do you just love the idea of Ava? No, I was a huge aid skate fan. When I didn't own the PlayStation, but I grew up with my cousin who did. And the only game so we played together on the PS1. Crash Bandicoot and April. And Crash Bandicoot was great, because it was one of those, all right, you died. Now you've got to handle the controller. It was a little more tough because you don't really die. You just play a level. And so we fought over that one way more than crash. But yeah, I love the escape. And I miss it every day. I've never, I've never escaped any apes. I don't even know what that is to be honest with you. Yeah. You don't help them escape? No, no, it's narrowing. Oh, it's terrible. You're an ape pop. That's terrible. I don't know. Are we saying apis cape is bad now? No, 'cause those Kate for jerks. That's trickles. What's the devolver game? What's the 8 pounds? Yeah, see that game. You totally broke out as an ape and you just destroyed everybody. Like that's the ape of escape I want. Death to all humans. That could be, hey, a Gritty, third person action blockbuster reboot of aids escape. You play as one of these named apes. Did you imagine like full triple-A budget, 8 out two is like this Gritty third person..

Sony's cyber walls for at least a few weeks at the point where they left this message and some accounts suggest that the initial intrusion might have happened even more than a year in advance because of just the enormous amount of information that got siphoned away. But either way this was not some sort of hasty message that was set immediately after the hackers got access to the system. Now the hackers had clearly already copied a vast amount of information which again depending on the account ranged anywhere from forty gigabytes to around one hundred.

Sony Confirms At Least 10 Movies and TV Shows Based on PlayStation Franchises In the Works

"The headline here. Sony has seven. Tv shows and three movies in development based on playstation games. No word on if the uncharted movie and the last of us tv series are included in that count So this came directly from sony pictures chairman and ceo where he revealed that his studio is developing seven tv shows. Movies based on playstation games They didn't name any names. Which i thought was interesting They didn't name any dates. Either i mean it's it's interesting right. The big headline. It's a catchy headline. It goes back to sort of a common theme here which is disney. Everything becoming disney The question is what seven tv shows and three movies are going to. Are they gonna make like the you would think they would have less than a little bit. I with the slate of tv's shows and movies sort of being hit or miss on the gaming front. Why not name specific so that they could get some kind of audience feedback and reaction guys. Think i'm particularly interested in these. Tv shows a lot harder than you know. Hour and a half to our movie like a lot of how are they going to agreed entire development but like for example last of us just as as an example. I see that much more as a series tv series than a movie way that one. Either you know. Like uncharted awesome movie. I would watch the movie in a second. But i'm charted obvious here right. Yeah so it out. It's like fixed indiana jones. It's like deanna jones but good. Now let potlucks i. I should say indiana jones. That came out rock. Indiana jones was always incredible and the first three movies are amazing. I mean the margin just to be very clear yes. Indiana jones is amazing. Don't worry paul. We still agree on that. I was about to go after. There is no joy in my heart. I do not like any film harrison. Ford what's that other big zombie series. I wife walking dead right won't wouldn't the last of us tv series feel like a lot like walking dead walking very successful true. True that is shockingly popular like however pushes won't feel and look very much the same. I don't know well. I could say that about every zombie movie ever doesn't days later feel like dawn of the dead. Feel like i don't know you know. Heart of darkness feel like our army of darkness. Like i mean there's zombie thing. Apparently we can have infinitely many of them. People still watch them martin's comments maybe the best here god of war movie would be incredible. I agree but let me come back to the original question here. Why why not announce what they're going to be. I think sony's like. Ip slate is clear. What sony actually owns either man part of that interesting. I think everybody tamargo. Marvin moons But i think there was something with. Sony had movie rights now marble makes the movies but sony distributes it but i think the characters owned by marvel but don't you agree that sony's ip is not crystal clear at least to me well especially without announcing what these shows are. I had no idea what that would make a. you know. I mean uncharted. And last of us were legitimately the only do that. I thought of has a theory why they would announce this without naming names might still figuring out pregnant prematurely sony and william. You might have better with this. But they're i think they're they're video game department way more higher class than their their movie studio and their production studio. I don't think sony pictures is particularly You know they're kind of like the fourth or fifth player. I think in the in the studio in the movie. Production game Obviously sony entertainment on the video game side is very well respected as developer. So i don't know if they can actually execute on this plan. We kind of talked about the riot. How we thought riot would actually which is ironic because ryan has never had anything to do with movies. But i think. I personally feel more confident riot. Being able to make a movie slash. Tv shell about league of legends. Than i am about sony which actually is in the business of making movies. Is it going to be able to have that magic s word. Synergy to in the movie and entertainment. That's so interesting. Because i have a much higher confidence in sony than riot and i'll i'll just i'll just be very simple. It's like. I actually think. Sony has blueprints or more coherent blueprint for what to do like the uncharted movie. They could literally take dialogue and scenes from the game and it would be a good movie. Like i think of uncharted. Moore's movie than a game right like they literally at the equivalent of the marvel comics story board like they can just take the game and take out the like. they're good. they're i think lee has a harder goal there because what is like. What's the story of league of legends. Jeff do you know who's the protagonist like i. I'm sure there are answers to this. And i think i might go no. I don't think anybody really does raise. Like the reality is they. Were pretty complicated. I'm taking crazy. Maybe those riots berretta blizzard and other Do i think riot can pull it off. Yes yes this is not like right. It's gonna make it. I think they're make a great movie. But i think it's much easier for sony because sony literally needs to pick an uncharted game. Get this got the script descriptive at cut it down to two hours and film it and it will be just fine. The games are designed to be like movies. They're set piece moments witty banter reasonably sharp characters and interesting relationships between them like they're gold. You know what i mean. And i think the same by the way of god of war i legitimately think than this last god of war probably might have been better as murphy in some regards like i enjoyed the story and the setpiece moment so much and the camera work was cinematic. Like half of let me the last god of war good was like how beautiful it looked and how it drew you into the narrative with immersion and and that was all i think it was all camera camera lights like perfect for though so

We have a thirty second request though in two weeks. Everybody who comes on is saying the first thing that something happened. I M Gena Davis and the first time fine I got cast in a movie was in tootsie. Few the first job did I failed and actually got fired on American gangster. I'm John Stewart the first time. I've bobbed onstage. funnily enough was the first time I was on stage. For some reason I was absolutely not nervous at all. The first scene was with Dustin Hoffman in my underwear but what I learned from that was Is Not all about me and you have to learn how to advocate sometimes as a filmmaker The Bitter End New York City. One o'clock in the morning following three doors cover bands. I had a good five minutes prepared about two minutes into the audience realized I might suck at this. The funniest thing was I didn't know you're only supposed to come on the days that you're working and nobody bothered to to tell me for six weeks. I showed up at six and went home when everybody else did. I'd get a chair and put it right next to Sydney Pollack considerable bad day avenue. I still feel that page on the is I walked into the night I thought to myself you know. There are a lot of law schools if I could I could go to them. And our first guest in two thousand fourteen was Christopher Nolan He. He was about to release his movie. Interstellar a lot of people are saying that this is your most personal film. How do you respond to that? You take a compliment. You think they might be right. I basic they don't know me so I I do you know yourself. I don't know Myself Derby when either you've been a lot of real world events that have driven our coverage over the years but the one that coincided with our launch was a Sony Hack today today the. US government pointed the finger of blame directly at North Korea with a devastating cyber attack against Sony. Pictures taken down the movie. The interview. That poked fun on at the North Korean dictator whole. They caused a Lotta damage. The cyber attack of Sony pictures which allegedly was conducted by North Korea came in response to a movie. It was called the interview. It Starts Seth Rogan and James Franco. It was a crazy story. It evolved every day and in the middle of it Dan Sterling in who was the screenwriter of the interview was with us in studio. Hi thanks for having me. It's very rare that a screenwriter is like with us to talk about breaking news news so I guess my breaking news questions. What the Hell's going on today? Well I just know what's going on in my email inbox which is an increasing flood of people asking me if if I'm okay both emotionally physically and financially was your answer. What do you tell you know? I was at a party on Saturday night where the host was introducing me to everybody the at the Party as this is the guy that brought down Sony exit was funny. Well the first four or five hundred times. The joke was made. It was funny except Except actually it's a way it's actually not funny to me I'm It's been a surreal experience. I'm still very much in the middle of the one thing that I know that I'm not happy about is actually The real suffering that is going on at Sony. Not Not just by the person who green lit my films so bravely but also by all the other people affected by the hack. I'm quite concerned about them there. There's so much about this story. We'll get to the film in it in a second. But what about about the reaction to the film itself has been the most surprising to you. Well look About a year ago today I was I was on a sound stage age and I was at the monitor watching Seth Rogan who was completely naked except for a sock around his penis and he had a bunch of Salami Alami tucked between his buttocks that a German shepherd was eating out of because the scene was he was being Sniffed by you know a bomb sniffing dog and I was laughing my head off sitting next to his mother who seemed to be used to these sorts of things and she was knitting a scarf and at the time Nothing like any. This could have occurred to me because the movie is just a in our minds was supposed to be an outrageous of course somewhat provocative but totally hilarious comedy which I think that it is but the the the reaction by the North Korean government was surprising to me And all of the things that have ensued have been. Ah I was quite naive going into

Just how serious this was for. Those who don't remember the hack was quickly connected to North Korea and Kim Jong Moons anger over the film the interview. It started Seth Rogan James Franco as a couple of TV. TV journalists who are going to interview and potentially assassinate the North Korean president. And at the time we were interviewing the screenwriter. Dan Sterling this. This is back in two thousand fourteen. You know I was at a party. On Saturday night where the per- the host was introducing me to everybody at the party. As this is the guy that brought down Sony. It was funny by that. Well the first four or five hundred times the joke was made It was funny except actually in a way. It's actually not funny to me. How was the heck essentially blamed on the movie and was that theory actually borne out after the fact? North Korea was in fact behind the hacking and Kim Jong was very very mad. That this you know American film was was was mocking him. Northwards of very poor country but they do actually have A. It's kind of very good Hacking program and He wanted to stop them from coming out and or punish Sony for having made it and he was pretty successful on both fronts. At the time the leading theory experts was there was North Korea but a lot of people around Sony. Thought it couldn't be eight or maybe it was angry at employee's rivals or something but The the FBI About a year ago concluded pretty definitively that it wasn't Korea and in fact they indicted Somebody who was part of a North korean-backed hacking team that was called the Lazarus project and was for numerous cybercrimes including the intrusion at Sony. That a lot of people forget. Is that the movie. We didn't really get released. I mean Sony was so worried about it that they pulled the release and then they kind of backtracked on that and at the time we were talking gene with a guy named James cursed he's the founder of. La's downtown independent theatre. He is in the studio talking about the movie. And this is what happens. There's been so much we were getting calls about it. My phone's ringing up. Oh it's the REP from Sony. Go ahead take it. Hi this the gym so he actually gets a call from Sony in the middle of the interview pain. Can you play the. Can you play movie in your theater. It ends up not getting getting much of an exhibition schedule at all. Does it. No it only a few hundred independent theaters briefly What happened was the hackers threatened that they were going to Bomb or cause violence at at an attack any theater that played the film and You know understandably a lot didn't wanNA play and as a result and Sony you know AH incorrectly so they weren't going to force any theater to play it even those that had contractual obligations to do it and then it was just crazy thing where a few hundred independent theaters did play it and It was also released online simultaneously by a few companies that were willing to do that. Not many people ended up seeing results. So if that was Kim Jong UN's goal he was very successful at that. Most people didn't see the film and Sony was severely damaged by the hack. So you gotta give the wind North Korea here very sadly well. Let's talk about how Sony was damaged by the hack. You spent a lot of time. I'm looking through documents. Released in the hack for part of your research and your book the Big picture the fight for the future of movies. So what did it reveal about Sony. And how did it more important reveal. How the studio had kind of lost its way right? So the hacktivists released tons of you know from the top executives at the time as well as internal documents than really sensitive financial stuff and it revealed when it comes to the interview that they had had numerous discussions about something like this happening and didn't take it seriously really. There was a lot of conflict between the top executives at the studio and they weren't just having a lot of trouble coming up with major motion picture franchises that could compete with you know the marvels marvels and the fast and furious is of the world. It was really an amazing insight into a studio that was struggling to adapt to the modern movie business. Well I'm going to ask about marvel because one of the the most remarkable pieces of information in your book is how and why Sony Refuse to pay twenty five million dollars for almost all of Marvel superheroes in the late nineties. So what did that episode say. About how Hollywood is changing and how Sony really missed the future. Yeah Hollywood You know in the late nineties. Not Rule I- franchises. The way it is now is really ruled ruled by movie stars. So Sony thought. Well we've got Adam Sandler we've got will Smith. That's that's what really is valuable. You know we're not gonNA waste our money in the reserve. It was maybe spider-man's valuable but that that's all that's all they wanted. And of course Sony horrifically miscalculated and. There's there's a Lotta stuff in the hack about Sony's attempts to to fix that mistake including trying to revive the spiderman franchise a few years ago. I think it's fair to say that in the wake of the Sony Hack back a lot of studios and a lot of companies probably try to improve their firewalls and had better. It security but do you think there's a bigger less than about Hollywood. That might be remembered from the hack. Do you think it still has an impact on the business into people still talk and think about what happened to Sony people. You know people all the time reference Sony when they when they talk about. How much sensitive stuff should we say on an email? There's a sense that there's this knowledge not to censor knowledge that email is never truly secure. And if you're not necessarily they comfortable with the world knowing about it then you probably shouldn't put it in an email if you don't have something nice to say. Don't say it at all. I guess or at least eight on the phone Ben. Fritz is an editor At The Wall Street Journal and he is the author of the book. The big picture the fight for the future movies Ben.
