Could Netflix Deliver a Glow Movie? Why Alison Brie Feels a “Little Pessimistic” About It

Alison Brie isn’t quite ready to say goodbye to Ruth Wilder.

Glow Canceled After Renewal By Netflix Due To COVID-19

In October, Netflix confirmed the cancelation of Glow despite having previously renewed the series for season four back in 2019. The reason? COVID-19. As a Netflix spokesperson said at the time, the virus “makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging.”

The cancelation left Glow with a ton of unexplored and open-ended storylines, which have some fans hoping for a full-length film as the ultimate sendoff. During a recent interview with The Playlist’s The Fourth Wall podcast, Brie, 37, revealed that she’s totally onboard for that idea.

“I certainly think a movie could tie everything up,” she said. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers. And they’re so devoted to these characters that they created.

‘The 355’ Movie Release Date Pushed Back a Year

Universal’s “The 355,” a female-led heist thriller starring Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o and Diane Kruger, has pushed its release date back a year.

The movie was initially set to open in theaters on Jan. 15, 2021 and will now debut on Jan. 14, 2022.

Simon Kinberg directed “The 355” from a script he wrote with Theresa Rebeck. The globe-trotting espionage thriller follows a group of international spies — a brigade that also includes Penelope Cruz and Fan Bingbing — who team up to stop a potentially world-altering event. Together, the five women form a faction called “355,” a nod to the assembly of female spies that united during the American Revolution. Edgar Ramirez and Sebastian Stan round out the cast.

Universal Pictures nabbed “The 355” after the movie premiered at Cannes Film Festival in 2018. The studio reportedly paid more than $20 million for domestic distribution rights.

How safe are indoor movie theaters during the COVID pandemic?

Remember what it was like going out to see a movie?

Even though movie theaters have implemented protocols to protect guests and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, and many of the measures have been met with praise from experts, the exhibition industry remains in a state of crisis. Indoor theaters have been closed in Los Angeles County since mid-March, and Gov. Gavin Newsom pulled the “emergency brake” on the rest of the state last week, shutting down many indoor businesses in California, including most movie theaters. Even when these restrictions lift, the industry will be anxious to reopen safely.

And in many other states, the question remains: With the national totals surpassing 12 million infections, more than 255,000 Americans dead and daily numbers surging to record highs, just how risky is it to see a movie indoors?

The argument from the exhibition industry to keep theaters open relies on confidence

Just below, you can see the new Chinese trailer for the Monster Hunter movie, with added English subtitles. We knew previously that the chef supreme would be appearing in the Paul W.S. Anderson movie, but know we finally have a look at the heroic creature.

The Meowscular Chef is one of the more beloved characters from the Monster Hunter game franchise. Last month in October, it was revealed that Palicoes would be making the jump from the Monster Hunter games into the movie adaptation, and that the Meowscular Chef would have a pretty “flirtatious” relationship with the movie’s hero, played by Milla Jovovich.

For those that don’t know, the Meowscular Chef is the former partner of the Admiral in Monster Hunter: World, the man with a plan in charge

Universal-Cineplex Deal is Latest Sign Movie Theater Pain Won’t End Soon

As the days left in 2020 decrease, so is the optimism among movie theaters that their businesses will soon return to normal. 

Exhibit A: Universal on Friday unveiled its new multiyear deal with Cineplex, Canada’s largest movie theater chain, to shorten the theatrical window of its films to as little as 17 days. Typically, theaters demand an exclusive window of 75-90 days.

Exhibit B: Universal earlier last week struck a similar deal with Cinemark to shorten the theatrical windows of its films to 17 days for films that open to less than $50 million and 31 days for films that open higher. 

These two deals, which had the road paved for them thanks to this Summer’s Universal-AMC pactwould probably have been laughed at if proposed years prior. Just look back as recently as April, when theater chains like Cineworld boycotted Universal after Jeff Shell suggested
