Comic-Con UPDATE: Bryan Fuller Reveals ‘Hannibal’ Season 3 Details, Eddie Izzard Among Returning Characters & Emmy Disappointment

By | Thursday July 24, 2014 @ 5:49pm PDT

Comic-Con UPDATE: Bryan Fuller Reveals ‘Hannibal’ Season 3 Details, Eddie Izzard Among Returning Characters & Emmy DisappointmentUPDATE: 5:49 PM: There were a few surprises at the Hannibal panel today after all. Both leads Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy appeared to Ballroom 20 via short individual video greetings with the former in Denmark and the latter from Australia.

hugh dancy hannibal video picAlso, it turns out Season 3 will pick up a year after the brutal events of the Season 2 finale. Episode 4 of Season 3 will fill in what happened between the two cycles, Bryan Fuller disclosed. He also revealed after a half-joking question by moderator Jonathan Ross that Eddie Izzard in fact will return to the series. “We’re writing for Eddie Izzard to return in a flashback scene,” said Fuller to applause from the packed ballroom about the reappearance of the losing limbs Dr. Abel Gideon. Izzard appeared in 5 episodes in Season 2. BTW – Raul Esparza did show up, and he’s coming back to the show.

PREVIOUS, 4:05 PM: Bryan Fuller doesn’t spare Hannibal viewers the raw deal on the show and he has no intention of doing otherwise today at Comic-Con. “We’re pretty generous with the spoilers,” the showrunner refreshingly told me just before this afternoon’s panel. “We will be talking fairly openly about events in Season 3 and hopefully getting people excited.” If last year’s SDCC appearance by the NBC series is any indication, the fans in Ballroom 20 will be very exited indeed.

UPDATE: USA Vs. Belgium Delivers ESPN’s 2nd Most Watched Men’s Soccer Game Ever, Univision Gets Over 5M Viewers

By and | Wednesday July 2, 2014 @ 12:48pm PDT

UPDATE: USA Vs. Belgium Delivers ESPN’s 2nd Most Watched Men’s Soccer Game Ever, Univision Gets Over 5M ViewersSpoiler Alert if you haven’t seen matches…

UPDATE, 12:48 PM: Yesterday’s defeat for Team USA was a real letdown for all those across the country who took part of their afternoon to watch the World Cup knockout game against Belgium. However, for ESPN and Univision that dedicated audience was a real score, to use the already overused term. ESPN had 16.49 million viewers watching the game and a 9.8 rating. That is not a record for ESPN, but it is the second-most watched men’s soccer game in U.S. TV history. Yesterday’s game falls behind the 18.22 million who watched the American team’s heartbreaking last-minute tie with Portugal on June 22, which got a 9.6 rating. However, the latter game was on a Sunday unlike yesterday’s weekday match. In that context and the fact that the ratings for Tuesday’s dramatic game doesn’t count all the massive crowds across the nation who watched on jumbo screens means that the U.S. vs. Belgium match probably actually was  much closer to the June 22 game in relative terms

Over on Univision, 5.1 million viewers watched the game, which went into extra time. While not the record-breaking 10.4 million who tuned in for Mexico’s loss on June 29 to the Netherlands nor the 6.5 million who saw Portugal tie Team USA, yesterday’s Univision viewership is better than the 3.4 million who watched America’s 1-0 loss to Germany on June 26. Online, Univision Digital saw a record-breaking 1.8 million unique viewers watch yesterday’s game. Maybe they were there because they were worried that ESPN’s WatchESPN app would crash again as it did during the USA-Germany game. Actually the ESPN app performed rather well and averaged 3.5 million unique viewers during the match. Read More »

Warner Bros Studios Leavesden To Expand In UK; ‘Tarzan’ Swings Into Residence

Warner Bros Studios Leavesden To Expand In UK; ‘Tarzan’ Swings Into ResidenceOn the heels of news that Pinewood Studios has received a greenlight for its expansion plans, Warner Bros Studios Leavesden is also getting ready to grow, adding three new stages and increasing office space. The studios, also known as the home of Harry Potter, were opened in 2012 after Warner invested more than £100M to rebuild and expand the London-adjacent facility to serve as its UK base. It has since played host to such films as Doug Liman’s Edge Of Tomorrow, Ron Howard’s Heart Of The Sea, and Guy Ritchie’s Man From U.N.C.L.E. It’s now adding to its roster David Yates’ Tarzan with Alexander Skarsgard, Margot Robbie, Samuel L Jackson and Christoph Waltz. The film started production today at Leavesden, joining Joe Wright’s Pan which has been filming there since April.

To meet the constantly increasing need for space in the UK where foreign productions are being lured in droves by lucrative film and TV tax credits, Leavesden will add one new 35,000 square foot and two new 17,000 square foot buildings, as well as 20,000 square feet of adjacent office space. The work will be completed by the end of the year. At that point, the facility will have 13 sound stages. A further two buildings located next to the lot have also been acquired to grow the production office space by 105,000 square feet. Earlier this year, the studio added an extra 50,000 square feet of workshop space, a 62,500 square foot external … Read More »

`Newsies’, Disney’s Accidental Broadway Hit, Will Shutter In August

By | Sunday June 22, 2014 @ 2:28pm PDT

`Newsies’, Disney’s Accidental Broadway Hit, Will Shutter In Augustschumacher2Disney, which has been quick to drop the axe on its Broadway flops, including Tarzan and The Little Mermaid, announced today that its accidental hit, Newsies, will close on August 24 at the Nederlander Theatre, while still earning respectable money at the box office after a run of more than two years and grosses of over $100 million.
Based on Disney’s 1992 film — a $42.8 million box-office dud whose video built a cult following — Newsies opened in the fall of 2011 at New Jersey’s Paper Mill Playhouse, where it was planned as a dry-run for a regional tour. But a new book by Harvey Fierstein (La Cage Aux Folles, Kinky Boots) and songs from Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, along with an upbeat, high-energy production staged by director Jeff Calhoun and choreographer Christopher Gatelli impressed the New York critics, compelling Disney Theatricals chief Thomas Schumacher to change course and head for Broadway. The show, which cost about $5 million, opened the following May and won Tonys for score and choreography.
Since then, however, the Nederander box office has weakened incrementally as several other family-friendly shows came in and amped up the competition for dollars from the Disney demo, notably that company’s own Aladdin along, of course, with the now-and-forever blockbuster Lion King.

Disney Hit With Potential $37.5M Class Action By Former Theme Park Employee

By | Friday June 20, 2014 @ 5:01pm PDT

Disney Hit With Potential $37.5M Class Action By Former Theme Park EmployeeDisneyland was not the happiest place on Earth for at least one former employee, and he’s seeking hundreds of others who feel the same way. Reykeel Zorio this week slapped Walt Disney Parks and Resorts and finance data services Walt Disney Worldwide Services with a class action complaint, alleging he was ripped off by Disney for unpaid vacation, unpaid wages and other monies. Claiming that the class members “exceed five hundred (500) persons,” Zorio’s complaint seeking a jury trial was filed yesterday in LA Superior Court (read it here). It presently seeks less than $75,000 for Zorio and the other class members individually. However, add that all up and you get a hefty figure around $37.5 million that’s being sought from the House of Mouse.

DJP LEGAL BADGEThe three-claim class action seeking certification is intended to cover all former nonexempt employees who worked at Disneyland Park, Disney’s California Adventure Theme Park, Disneyland Hotel, Disney Grand Californian Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and Downtown Disney from 2010-2014. Zorio was hired by Disney Worldwide Services in November 2011 and was “transferred” to Disneyland. His first day of work there was November 26 that year. The 11-page complaint does not state when he left the company, but it alleges violation of labor code for denial of vacation wages, violation of labor code for unpaid wages at discharge and violation of business and practices.

Zorio’s complaint also says that a class action is the best action because … Read More »

By | Friday June 13, 2014 @ 12:10pm PDT

Mudbloods Quidditch filmSome sports nuts have the World Cup – others have the Quidditch World Cup, in which top collegiate athletes compete in a version of the high-flying sport Harry Potter plays in J.K. Rowling‘s fantasy wizarding world.

Bond/360, the distro arm launched by Bond Strategy and Influence last year, will release Mudbloods theatrically and on VOD in October. Previous Bond/360 releases include Particle Fever, Sign Painters, and Dessert Runners.

Quidditch Harry Potter Mudbloods movieMudbloods gives audiences a glimpse into a growing collegiate sport that was inspired by the preeminent cultural touchstone of our generation…Harry Potter,” said Amanda Lebow, Director of Film Strategy for BOND/360. “Farzad Sangari is a talented up-and-coming filmmaker with a remarkable humanistic touch. We couldn’t be more pleased for BOND/360 to be sharing this film with the world.” Mudbloods will first premiere at AFI DOCS on June 21 before it opens digitally and in limited release this fall.
