Diehn says that though the number of unique users on Stitcher did decline slightly during the early days of the pandemic, the return in listening time signals that those users aren’t lost for good. “We’re seeing those hours come back because the people didn’t really go away. They were there, they just didn’t have quite as much time,” he says. “That tells me that this is an enduring medium and one that, as we come out of this, will remain strong.” … [Read more...] about Podcast Playlist: Episode Lengths Shortening as New Shows Proliferate, Report Finds

"It's either going to end tragic or it's going to end not tragic, and I can kind of make an argument for both. I don't really know where it's going to go. I always thought Dean would make the ultimate sacrifice for his brother. I guess if I had to choose something, that's probably what I would choose." As for the moment, neither actor knowns what's in store for the much loved Winchester Bros. And they don't seem to care. They like living in the series moment by moment, and they are none too eager to give up their jobs, even with so many episodes already under their belt.

“There’s no centralized model for doing something like this and working with the NHS, there’s no centralized model at the NHS either,” Lewis says. “Crucially, this can only last as long as people give money. That’s the point. No one is funding this except the public.” Celebrity friends have been banging the fundraising drum, not least Bridesmaids star and future The Great British Bake Off host Matt Lucas, who has released a song about a baked potato offering public health advice after the ditty went viral on Twitter. And as Lewis and McCrory bid to roll out their Feed NHS scheme nationally, fundraising and logistics have become a full-time job of sorts. … [Read more...] about Coping With COVID-19 Crisis: Damian Lewis & Helen McCrory On Feeding Health Workers After Filming Halted On ‘Billions’ & ‘Peaky Blinders’
Is that why so many films I’ve seen lately seem too dark? Why you don’t really see people in the shadows when clearly the director wants you to see them?Well, theaters try to put in a screen that’s larger than the light source they paid for. If you buy a 2,000-watt projector, it may give you a decent picture 20 feet wide. And let’s say that theater makes the picture forty feet wide by putting it in a wider-angle projector. In fact, then you’re getting 200 percent less light. It’s an inverse law of squares. But they want a bigger picture, so it’s dark. Many exhibitors are terribly guilty of ignoring minimum standards of picture quality. For instance, you now have theaters where all the reels are run in one continuous string.

The scratch goes from … [Read more...] about Stanley Kubrick: The Rolling Stone Interview
"They're talking about Arrested Development coming back, so I called Mitchell Hurwitz, our creator, commander-in-chief, brilliant person, and I said, 'What should I say, if I'm asked?' And he said, 'You can tell them that you've been in touch with me, and that Brian Grazer wants to do it, and that, now that Buster has been arrested for the murder of Liza Minnelli, we're very anxious to get this [season] started." RELATED: Ron Howard Narrates Star Wars in Arrested Development Mashup Video Season 4 of Arrested Development ended with Liza Minnelli's character, Lucille Austero, found in a pool of blood, before her body disappeared. Lucile was the on and off lover of Tony Hale's Buster Bluth, and judging from the actress' comments, it seems Buster has taken the rap for this bloody murder. Whether or not he actually committed the murder or not remains unknown, and will likely be the mystery that the new episodes revolve around. … [Read more...] about Arrested Development Season 5 Opens with Buster Arrested for Murder
