Not since the literary biopic showdown between “Capote” and “Infamous” has there been such an intense battle for the attention of viewers. This time, the fight is between #Hulu and #Netflix’s competing #documentaries about the disastrous #FyreFestival, a 2017 #music #festival whose failure led to eight lawsuits and a six-year #prison sentence for co-founder #BillyMcFarland.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ 📑 | SOURCE: @techcrunch ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #film #films #movie #movies #cinema #hollywood #entertainment #celebrity #celebrities #filmnews #comedy #drama #action #horror #suspense #filmcritic #newhollywood #indies #studio #theatre⁣ #netflixmovies #huluoriginal ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣
All this might be for naught if it weren’t for Netflix’s deep-pocketed awards bid. Foreign-language #Oscar contenders usually merit a scant few tastemaker parties if they’re lucky, but Netflix has mounted a “#Roma” campaign more akin to what you’d give a #Marvel movie. #Hollywood is blanketed in billboards bearing Aparicio’s face, “Roma” events are thrown nearly round the clock, and many industry figures received a heavy $175 book about the film published by Assouline. Rival publicists estimate that #Netflix is spending $10 million to $20 million on award-season promotion, though some put that figure even higher.⁣ ⁣⁣ 📑 | SOURCE: @nytimes⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #film #films #movie #movies #cinema #hollywood #entertainment #celebrity #celebrities #cinephile #filmnews #filmreviews #ICYMI #comedy #drama #action #horror #suspense #filmcritic #oldhollywood #newhollywood #indies #indiefilms #studio #boxoffice #theatre

In response to a request by Saudi authorities, #Netflix recently removed an episode of the stand-up #comedy show “#PatriotAct,” featuring @HasanMinhaj. The Saudi #government accused Mr. Minhaj’s show of violating the kingdom’s vague and broad cybercrime law forbidding the “production, preparation, transmission or storage of material impinging on public order, religious values, public morals and privacy online.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ In the offending episode, Mr. Minhaj eviscerated Prince Mohammed bin Salman, holding him responsible for the murder of the columnist #JamalKhashoggi and the Saudi bombing campaign in #Yemen. He also mocked the crown prince’s recent efforts to cast himself as a modernizer and a reformer.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ By making the episode unavailable in #SaudiArabia Netflix became complicit with the pervasive censorship that artists, entertainers, journalists and regular citizens have long had to deal with in the Middle East.⁣ ⁣ 📑 | SOURCE: @nytimes⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #film #films #movie #movies #cinema #hollywood #entertainment #celebrity #celebrities #filmnews #ICYMI #comedy #drama #action #horror #suspense #filmcritic #studio #boxoffice #theatre #censorship #netflixmovies #netflixandchill #netflixshows
