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!

The Hollywood Read ep. 32

Leonardo DiCaprio is currently starring in Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, so now is the time to take a look at his career and the almost 30 whole years he has spent as a famous person. Jumping off that article in The Hollywood Reporter, which posits DiCaprio as the last true Movie Star, we discuss why he really isn’t that adventurous, why his fame game is boring, and his scientifically proven aversion to women his own age. But first! We also go over the films announced for TIFF and Venice, including new films from Marielle Heller and Taika Waititi.
