We’re back with a recap of the virtual Toronto Film Festival, which was a very strange experience, like everything else in 2020. But first, we update the Tenet box office and speculate on the mystery of whether or not Mulan was successful. Then we grit our teeth and talk about Cuties and the unjust controversy that was blown way out of proportion by bad-faith actors over the last few weeks. Join us for this super fun and totally normal conversation!
It’s been a big week for the film industry, from Disney’s shocking announcement regarding the digital release of Mulan, to the repeal of the Paramount Decree, to long-gestating rumors about Ellen DeGeneres’s toxic work place exploding in the mainstream. Join us as we break it all down, from what success could look like for Mulan on streaming, to what it means to lose the Paramount Decree, and how Ellen’s faux-kindness front has concealed years of workplace toxicity.

Four months into the pandemic, with Comic Con broadcasting remotely online and Disney pulling 90% of their slate from the release calendar, we take a look at how the industry is doing. Hint: Not well! We ponder the future of blockbusters, indies, Oscars, how on earth anyone will get celebrities to go back on press tours after this, and the fate of the upcoming fall film festivals. Join us as we return to the pit of despair!
