Video content budgets across India , Korea and Southeast Asia climbed 21% to reach $10.4bn in 2021, and are forecast to grow 15% to $12bn in 2022, according to a report from Media Partners Asia (MPA). Asian content investment surged last year as key operators “replenished content pipelines after the initial waves of Covid depleted programming inventories in 2020”, according to the report, entitled Asia Video Content Dynamics 2022. The report tracks content consumption, investment and production costs across seven key Asian markets: India, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The figures include free-to-air (FTA), pay-TV, online video and film investments. All those verticals are growing except for theatrical films, which saw investment contract 2% as pandemic restrictions delayed releases in many markets. However, film investment is expected to grow 140% in 2022 as theatres start screening new locally-produced movies. Pay-TV … [Read more...] about Content Investment In India, Korea & SE-Asia Grew 21% To $10bn In 2021, But Film Contracted Due To Delayed Releases

It happened. It finally happened. Though Republicans tried to stand in the way of Democrats’ efforts to pass a massive climate change bill, thanks to a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Kamala Harris, the legislation now heads to the House. The bill, the Inflation Reduction Act , if put into law could reduce greenhouse gas emissions to approximately 40 percent of 2005 levels, according to The New York Times . The bill also contains provisions that would allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices for the first time and would limit out-of-pocket costs for Medicare recipients to $2,000 per year. The Senate approved the legislation after a 15 hour vote-a-rama during which Republicans successfully passed an amendment removing a cap on out-of-pocket costs for insulin to $35 for people with private insurance. But an out-of-pocket cap for Medicare recipients was included in the Senate version of the bill. Most of the other amendments offered by Republicans were … [Read more...] about Holy Sh*t.

In the satisfyingly corny Fall , directed by Scott Mann, two women get stranded atop a rusted, obsolete TV tower — a slim, rickety death trap that they had no business climbing in the first place. But what would be the fun in playing by the rules? Grace Caroline Currey plays Becky and Virginia Gardner plays Becky’s best friend, Hunter. They’re a pair of thrill-seekers, one of them coming out of a brief, depressive retirement. It wouldn’t be a modern survival thriller without there being a reason for these women trying to touch the sky from atop a 2,000-foot-tall hunk of metal. So here’s the reason: Almost a year ago, Becky’s partner, Dan, lost a fatal game of peek-a-boo with a bird while the trio was on a climb, and fell to his death. Now, Becky’s life can be summed up in the box of Dan’s ashes collecting dust in some dreary corner of the museum she calls an apartment, where empty alcohol and pill bottles take up more space than dishware or food. In sum: Becky … [Read more...] about ‘Fall’: The Only Thing You Have to Fear Is Holy-Shit Panic-Inducing Heights

Let’s start with the Golden Rule of the Climate crisis: the rich may take a hit on their investment portfolios, but it’s the poor and vulnerable who are truly fucked. It’s true in Bangladesh and Nigeria. It’s true on the Gulf Coast. And it’s definitely true in the coalfields of Appalachia. For most people who care about the future of human civilization, last week was a very good week. West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin quit dicking around and announced that he would support a $369 billion climate/energy deal (AKA the Inflation Reduction Act) was the best news anyone in who cares about the fate of the planet had heard in a very long time. “Holy shit,” Senator Tina Smith of Minnesota tweeted . “Stunned, but in a good way.” Among other things, it would put the US on track to cut climate pollution by 40 percent by 2030, which is within shouting range of the 50 percent reduction President Biden had committed to last year. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer told Manchin the deal … [Read more...] about In Exchange for a Climate Deal, Joe Manchin Demanded a Terrible Price
At 12:44 p.m. on June 13, the wife of a high-profile music-industry veteran received a call from a 917 number that made her stomach drop. A male voice with a thick accent told the woman that her daughter — whose name he used — had just been involved in a car accident and was in the back of his vehicle awaiting help. The man on the line assured the woman that her daughter was fine and hung up quickly. As the woman was relaying the conversation to her husband, the phone rang again. This time the voice on the other end was far less comforting. The stranger said he was a member of a Mexican drug cartel and told the woman that plans had changed. He was going to drive the girl across the southern border. The teen would be raped and dismembered if the woman didn’t meet his associate in a suburban Walmart parking lot and pay $10,000 in cash. Chillingly, the man raved about the girl’s blond hair and said she was “so pretty.” The woman then heard what she thought was her daughter in the … [Read more...] about ‘Virtual Kidnappings’ Hit Entertainment-Industry Elite
Rolling Stone interview series Unknown Legends features long-form conversations between senior writer Andy Greene and veteran musicians who have toured and recorded alongside icons for years. All are renowned in the business, but some are less well known to the general public. Here, these artists tell their stories, giving an up-close look at life on music’s A list. This edition features drummer Bryan “Brain” Mantia. Guns N’ Roses’ 2002 Chinese Democracy tour and Tom Waits ’ 2004 Real Gone tour were such wildly different affairs that comparing them almost seems ludicrous. GN’R were playing arenas behind an outrageously anticipated album that wouldn’t land in stores for another six years, and there was so much chaos surrounding the shows — including a riot in Philadelphia when the band never showed up onstage — that promoters canceled the tour less than halfway through. Waits, meanwhile, played 11 intimate shows at small theaters across Europe and North America, and they … [Read more...] about Bryan ‘Brain’ Mantia Was There for Guns N’ Roses’ Most Unpredictable Era.
