"Sony. It's like what does disney really need to have this. Katie happy with this and venom was turned the win until tom rothman came in and edited in the bane fixed it made everything great and you know they did make <hes> spider man's spider verse which won an oscar they did all on their own by the way and i'm like the very biased to sony like from the get-go so fox news right there thank you i was saying so. This is very very blatantly. Li like been a- tainted article say there is a lot of sony asked kissing in their swear. I could smell detained on the fucking worst. Now okay at this point. I do agree personally. That disney is being a bit greedy. Okay that's fair now because like like it says disney owns the merchandising rights to spiderman so in toys church smooth anything like that kind of stuff. They get all that money so basically your entire backrooms. I mean disney own gotcha gotcha so merchandising ising toys r. where the money is you might make a billion dollars on a movie but you will make way more in merchandise. Oh yeah so you know they're taking the lion's share of the profits off of the character. Regardless of there is a movie out or not. He wins movie out years. Yeah when there's a movie out yes more merchandise can be sold but even if they never make another movie again if little kisses vitamin face on the backpack he know by that so it's like come out. Sorry we live mama spiderman backpack right now. Okay all right just as long as you said. Fuck up so before i go any further i don't don't want this to be my own personal rant and rave and so i wanna know if you were in sony's sony's situation. Do you think that it would be a wise move to walk away from disney and the m._c. You the whole twenty two movies and ten years worth of content that they have built up to just say we're just going to separate from that and do our own thing and we don't need no more. No i'll tell you why because even though they were asking for disney was asking for half that's still gave sony. A good chunk also always the biggest monopoly right now disney. If you turn your back on disney any this book you of you and your stocks are going to plummet. I've already saw some things about sony's stocks plummeting like two days after the announcement. I've seen some boycott sony had every you have have your stock plummet. What happens to companies when their stocks plummet bigger companies get to buy them for super cheap so the mouse is going to obtain sony money regardless. I think after the fox acquisition that the government will push back real hard disney tried to buy sony because they're look yell already done took fox and we barely let you have that like don't don't push it. It's gonna i think they're going to try is sony's gonna be awesome bullshit. They stocks plummet. There's gonna be a hostile takeover. Warner brothers going to swoop finest she in in warner brothers spiderman swinging around with batman superman urban. You'll be mad hanging from his off before you just wait until they throw him into. Fucking justice league to you just want to flash will be cracking jones suicides.

"Films to fifty fifty co-financing arrangement between the studios and there were discussions that this extend to other films in the spiderman universally venom movies seized whatever other coming up with there were like hey we will co-finance this and help you guys out but we want half the cut. When the move comes out the fair fair deal all right all right okay so it says sony turned the offer down flat sources sony. He said that sony led by. Tom rothman and tony vinson kit came back with other configurations but disney didn't want to do that but sony did not. I want to share its biggest franchise. Sure disney will be putting up half the funding but the risk is in how much you were going to make back in profit. Disney wasn't at all interested in continuing continuing the current terms. Were marvel receives in the range of five percent of first dollars gross. Now what that means i dollars gross as disney disney would get five percent of the first week in boxoffice okay and then the other ninety five percent would go to sony so they produce the movies sony finances. This is the marvel gets half or five percent day at the ritz. Okay that was current setup and that's what sony wanted to keep in their mouths was like i don't pixel bitch. He's like romney good. He does go on to say sources. Sony said disney's top brass for the past. Several months has sought new terms for fi in the marvel cross pollination to continue as spiderman relationship grew feigen sony pictures chief. Tom rothman spoke about the possibility of a wider involvement in the control spiderman universe which contains nine hundred characters. That's just spiderman in his like cast of people diamonds uh-huh so as you can see sony has a vested interest in not give initiative because they're like man we got nine hundred bucks plus movies for right now so it is understandable that the fiscal shrewd rothman would balk at giving up half of sony's biggest franchise tomorrow after all marvel already owns the merchandising on spiderman. Does the mouse really need half the movies universe also sony so far has decided that as valuable as kevin feige is disney is <unk> asking too high a price sources sony said that sony reason that they will be fine without kevin five the creative temple has been set on the spiderman films and watts and in holland are in place along with any pascal who became producer with feigen after she exited the executive suite after presiding over the previous vitamin integrations directed by same ramey and marc webb as sony pictures chief and sources sony note that venom was a problem picture and far from the polish product that gross eight hundred engine fifty six million worldwide until rothman himself spent a good long time in the editing room helping to get it their venom sequel is well underway with andy circus directing. Tom hardy and there is more bs with jerry leto craving the hunter and another spin off with the characters silver sable and black cat and sinister six film that got shelved sony in which once felt the ticking clock of generating spiderman film every three or so years to prevent a rights revision reversion to disney now has plenty of pictures to make in the studio also won the best animated feature oscar for spiderman into despite offers a smash hit. They made on their own now. I know i just did it a whole lot of word word vomit there so let's kind of dissect this first thing. How you know that this comes from sony is that there are a lot of praise to sony..

"Between Sony pictures which owns the rights to the character and has the spider man franchise in perpetuity and Marvel studios which is this successful and Disney owned Jagannatha superhero movies Marvel really wanted to incorporate spider man into its Marvel cinematic universe with the Avengers and all of spider-man's buddies but Sony on the character and Sony it had some trouble with the most recent spider man movies so they came this unique arrangement where Marvel's Kevin Feige he would produce spider man movies for Sony Sony we get to distribute them and reap all the profits but then spider man will be lent out to these Avengers movies in a way that would allow a continuous story line and for fans to really enjoy all the Marvel movies and spider man in the entire universe that has come to an end they couldn't reach a deal to extend this arrangement and we had some fireworks between two studios this week over what went wrong it's really rare to see two studios go out like that largely because you don't see studios collaborate on projects and it really felt like Disney which is the number one studio in town trying to use that muscle to get what it wanted you know Disney accounts for thirty or forty percent of the box office every year just this year it's got Avengers Toy Story a Latin lying king frozen and Star Wars coming up and so we wanted so need to give it out of hello we'll share of the revenue and profits more so than it's been getting and Sony seems like it fell either that it didn't need Disney's help anymore or while it would welcome Disney's help it certainly wasn't going to give away that much of its most valuable franchise and it's hard to see how there is all of this because the they don't really need one another you know Sony would like to have Kevin Feige then but he Marvel studios has had an incredible run under him Disney and Marvel would certainly like to include Tom Holland spider man in their movies but they can make future Marvel movies without him and so he can certainly make Spiderman movies without Disney yeah it seems like this was a of a bit of a tactical decision on Sony's part they have had success on spider man oriented films without marble they did the spider man into the universe animated film that won an Oscar this past year was very successful and they did a spin off movie venom that surprised a lot of people when it grows more than eight hundred million dollars and that didn't even have spider man in it so I think Sony is thinking in Tom Rothman at Sony especially is thinking I don't need these guys you know we learned a lot from them and yes the past two Spiderman movies have grossed more than the recent ones as this current spider man movie far from home is over a billion dollars and became Sony's biggest grosser of all time but they are thinking we can do this on our own we are professional moviemakers we don't need this guy yeah and I wonder you know how much credit the Sony executives how much credit with Tom Rothman give Kevin psyche for his input on a movie like spider man far from home which which has its own producers what has been was mostly kind of developed and overseen at Sony you know how how just how involved on a day to day basis are those Marvel executives and how much will their loss be felt in such good movies because Sony has a lot of plans for spider man there's no way given given what you said about venom and success so far from home this can stop it wants to build a whole universe make not only repeated spider man movies but a lot of other spin offs with different characters and turn this into a franchise the other thing that's going to come up is that Sony has plans to develop a bunch of spider man TV shows which it's going to be able to sell across town and see see Disney losing control or not having full control over this one care or would something Disney doesn't like Disney likes to have control over how it's I. P. is presented in any place any shape or form the one thing is the fans are really upset and that's a big part of the Marvel success they like this continuity between the Avengers movies and spider man far from home so we'll see what happens there thank you Lucas that's Lucas Shah reporter for Bloomberg he joins me.

"Your friendly neighborhood web slinger except left only fifty fifty profit split drop. That bag fills f._c. On all right so the jason marathon on the watch continues well obviously got a lot. I stuff going on right now. You can check out our after show for successions called number one boys. You can find that on youtube. You can find that in all the usual spots. We've been running the audio for number one boys on on the watch feed so as you watch succession you could always here are long recap of the episode of succession on the watch. Jason and i also have been breaking down minehunters season into so in monday's show. We did episodes one through five. You can watch a video version of that breakdown on youtube. That's under the flat circle banner. That's sort of our our true crime crime show. We're doing and you can check that out and today we are talking about the second half of mind hunter season two episode six through nine but before we got into that <hes> let's talk a little bit about the spiderman stuff that came up this week so obviously sean and wesleyan. Amanda had a great conversation on spiderman and its relation to you a larger existential crisis about the state of the movies and that's really awesome talk. People should check out. I want to ask you sort of more practically about out the story as a a fan service story yeah and also as as it relates to like marvel going forward so basically weekly like the broad strokes of the story. Tell me what you you understand about it. The broad strokes of the story are this really kind of groundbreaking agreement that was hashed out rather quickly between sony and marvel. Amy pascal and feige is the point people to share her spiderman. Essentially like marvel would rent him. Yeah has now come to an end. The products of that were two standalone alone spiderman movies <hes> homecoming and far from home both really fun and then various appearances by spiderman in the m._c. You civil war war <hes> infinity warrant and in those movies seemingly being groomed to be the next figurehead of the m._c._i. Right you're the next tony stark gets the sunglasses <hes> he gets tony sunglasses which give him you know <hes> access to tony's tony's vast weapons array tanker tour library his incredible bittorrent library of dark web shit like terabytes of information on people and you know potentially like trillions of dollars worth of assets and money <hes> and where we left it at the end of far from home was <hes> peter's secret identity released to the world yeah yeah <hes> and now that's over marvel wanted as you noted fifty fifty split sony was like hold on a second. We've got your most most most popular character and both captain. America and tony stark are out of the picture yeah so the feeling. I guess we're not going to draft right. It'd be like we have some leverage. We're not giving you a fifty fifty split right like i. This is a very like. I don't know if this is a completely accurate way of looking at it but this is sort of like what if the the the lakers were like. Let's split zion williamson this year. It is kinda like you're talking about. A draft pick of that caliber of that kind of value in a world in the same way disney was like it's not really worth it to us to do this for five percent right if you want kevin feige golden midas touch absolute guys split fifty fifty and on the flip side because it's competitive marketplace tom rothman over tony is apparently like i like my chances right. I like my chances doing the two more spiderman movies we have holland under contract for and making him a part of the spiderman universe that we're trying to build it sony that is venom. You hate it on venom and now you love them. Everybody was shitting on venom critically sleep panned and guess what eight hundred million yeah so let me you've got venom to and they've got jared leto starring in moebius. I don't even know what that is but he's a fan having he's making freaking vampire so there's east on jared leto is actual life. There's a couple takeaways mirror one is that i think sony wants spiderman movies at a faster clip than disney's..

"Sequels and so if he were to stay involved he would have to negotiate she contracts so there's no confirmation or certainty he will be back for whatever spiderman three would be presumably homeless now as i predicted long ago and it's really quickly. Do we know if tom holland is actually signed to anybody confirmed that tomlin's melodist contracted for two more movies so he he no matter what like he would have to be in those two movies unless you know something crazy would happen would pull out. I would presume have to pay a penalty or something like that again. I'm not an entertainment lawyer so yeah and then last week apparently this the the deal with the negotiations <hes> when they were breaking down disney wanted a thirty percent stake and that and that's when the negotiations kind of broke down down and now we're we're we are not where we're not sure exactly what's happening if sony and ma <hes> disney slash <unk>. We're gonna work this out or or what's going on. It is just it is very very frustrating yeah so so yeah. I think that last point was in the original report. It said that disney wanted a fifty fifty co financing think deal with sony and then now this update from the hollywood reporter is saying that disney actually was willing to go down to a a thirty percent instead of you. You know an equal fifty percent and sony still didn't take that deal so <hes> you know if there's there's all sorts of you know we can argue all day about whose side you know what might happen. We weren't in those rooms. We don't know what those negotiations were like <hes> brad. I think you've laid out the case that a lot of people are feeling where it's just you know they're thinking about the m._c. View in the the impact of that and what that is going to have on the storytelling level. I feel like we have considered to just like you have to think about <hes> <hes> kevin fight. Ye saved sony's ass when it came to spider man. He made spiderman viable for them again. Spider far from home is now sony is highest grossing grossing movie of all time and tom rothman is an idiot he has consistently and frequently made shitty pretty decisions especially with regards to blockbusters and he was very blind when it came to the the idea of even having successful comedy movies and thought that they were a fad to begin with. He doesn't doesn't get it. He's a moron. He has no vision whatsoever so him being one of you behind this decision to show you how asinine like this whole thing really is yeah and he ran ran fox for a long time and was one of the people who really didn't understand what was going on even with like the x. men movies like he yeah like you said thought this whole thing was was a fat and just did not understand the right way to to make these films but i know that you were talking a little bit about inner slack channel about how <hes> you know you just like me and everybody else are are <hes> upset with like what this might do to the creative angle of the the m._c. You but like the idea. I don't know i i'm i'm trying to put words in your mouth. I don't need to so like what what is your. What are your updated thoughts on this well from a business the standpoint i guess i would say it just <hes> the whole thing just kind of stinks to me because of how powerful disney has grown and how much each of its weight. It's really throwing around without really needing to i mean i also agree with you. On the crater standpoint the narrative standpoint. I think think that's veteran has been helped so much by being part of the m._c. You and kevin by has brought the spiderman franchise back into the light but <hes> with disney's he's purchase of twentieth century fox and <hes> it basically dominating the box office right now the summer box office the top five films <hes> are all disney owned and i think a of the top fill top from films all time is starting to become like dangerously disney dominated so it's just a matter.

"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.

"That is, there's a quote I read in in some of them. Shirley sent to me was he met with Tom Rothman said, what kind of movie do you think this is? Yeah. And Tom Rothman said, I think it's a family movie and he said, what the fuck are you talk about family movie and he dies the ocean. He said, what happened when you read the book? And he said, I finish it and I gave it to my wife and he said them when he said the rest of my family, read it. Sure. And he went, that's the point everyone I know who's read this book has shared it with their whole family. That's family. Get something out of it. Also read win around my family. I assure either my dad or my body because of the Booker prize. Right, read and then they were like, you know, magical realism, check it out. That was like Tom Rothmans wholesale was this movie has some weird reflection pool kind of thing where people exceed themselves in it regardless of age, regardless of background, and it works sort of this like worshiped has. I have not read the book I've written. Yeah, I do think the triumph for the book is the first part, like in part with the family of the part where he explains his relationship with the religions, all that stuff like that is when you're just like, I love this man so much, and I love his family. You know, you're just and then all the rest of shit. You're so hooked, but it's because you're so so into pi. Yeah, but, yeah, I mean, I, I'm sorry, I feel like I cut you off in the cutoff races eighteen ups. It's okay everyone talk. But yes, this notion that they were courting him very aggressively that they were like. This is a major commercial film and that he then started considering it and came back to them. I went, okay. I -gree with you, but the only way to make is this level of technological breakthrough. This level of germ production, it gets three d. is like a thing right about now, right? Because attitude, nine, ten. But like it's it's sort of like brewing, this is like in the lead up to avatar when people are like, I don't know if things just seeing bay will write five time. Right? I remember I remember. Seeing beowulf with my friends and going so think about what we just saw and James Cameron is now making an alien warm movie. And we were just like. But that was sort of that was like the hanging promise of like either he's going to elevate it or the thing just dies. James Cameron and he got really into. I mean, a thing I always think about with regards to this movie is. Film set on water are kind of perfectly made for three day absolute because of the water grading as a surface everything above it. It makes a shadow box effect where it's like the water into vanishing horizon in the middle of see everything floating on top of that, you know fall out in three, I haven't through exquisite. I've heard the, it's like the best post tumors go up to eighty four th street still playing candy and see at the bulbous pretty good, and it's a good bulb. But you really gotta find bright right.

And then saw up eight forty x yet I missed for x. I heard it was amazing. It was amazing to our friend. Bobby finger fingered said it was phenomenal.

"Yeah you know americans love american movies and people around the rule of american movies but americans don't like any other kind of film it just hasn't happened and there was that example of the four great wall oh four four year year movie in china which then didn't work here at all but that was that was a purely chinese film the the great wall was made you know is in english it was made to be you know a co production that would be a work in china and in the west and ended up working nowhere you know and they put they put matt damon and a bunch of chinese stars together to open the movie is he a movie star matt damon is in the category jennifer lawrence and everybody else's wayne johnson which is in certain films right you know and matt damon works in the bourne films but this plenty of matt damon movies at you know don't open it very much jennifer lawrence in the hunger games everybody goes to see and tom cruise in mission impossible but but they don't wanna see them no matter what they're doing and that's true for matt damon is well he just in this movie suburban con with which i think open to two million dollars that's that's so stunning stunning number well well i guess i would just last thing because i thought we thought it was also interesting how you pointed out that films can be bigger flops now than they ever used to be this and so that may make studios like less likely to want to take a chance on a actors pet project and they would have been in the past because if it's a small film that's not tied to a franchise it won't just make a small amount of money it can make like no nothing yeah i mean it used to be in hollywood that if you spend your marketing dollars if you spend twenty thirty forty million dollars on marketing which is what you have to spend in the us to open a film you were going to open to something you could buy an opening could get people to come out and you'd open to at least let's say ten or fifteen million dollars it seemed impossible that you couldn't but now is i quote a i think tom rothman who runs sony pictures now i quote him in.
