Disney+ will launch in the UK, Germany, Italy, France and Spain in March 2020 | TechCrunch
Disney+ will launch in the U.S., Canada and the Netherlands on November 12th, a bit shy of a week from today. On November 19th, it’ll expand to Australia and New Zealand.
But what about the rest of the world?
Disney has kept quiet about its plans for other countries, presumably because going live in another country is a little more complicated than just flipping a switch. Every country tends to have different privacy/tax laws regarding subscription services, and rights and licensing for each bit of content has to be detangled with respect to existing deals.

The VOID’s Latest Location-Based VR Experience Is A Jumanji-Themed Jungle Heist - VRScout

Opinion | Martin Scorsese: I Said Marvel Movies Aren’t Cinema. Let Me Explain. - The New York Times
Many of the elements that define cinema as I know it are there in Marvel pictures. What’s not there is revelation, mystery or genuine emotional danger. Nothing is at risk. The pictures are made to satisfy a specific set of demands, and they are designed as variations on a finite number of themes.

They are sequels in name but they are remakes in spirit, and everything in them is officially sanctioned because it can’t really be any other way.

Your Halloween zombie costume may have its roots in the 1918 flu that killed 20,000 Philadelphians
Ten years after the flu ended, the term “zombie” arrived in the United States largely through William Seabrook’s 1929 book “The Magic Island.”

Половину российских фильмов, получивших госфинансирование, в кинотеатрах почти никто не увидел — Meduza
Половину фильмов, профинансированных с 2015 года Минкультуры, зрители в кинотеатрах почти не смотрели, пишут «Ведомости» со ссылкой на базу данных господдержки кинематографа.

Речь идет о 80 фильмах, на которые в общей сложности было выделено из бюджета почти 2 миллиарда рублей. 50 из этих фильмов посмотрели не более 10 тысяч зрителей каждый, а у 30 картин в прокате не было и 1 тысячи зрителей.

Как поясняет издание, создатели фильмов могут получить у Минкультуры несколько миллионов рублей под обязательства завершить картину и сдать ее копию на хранение государству. При этом они не обязаны выпускать такие фильмы в прокат или показывать их на фестивалях.

Судя по базе данных, в прокат, например, не выходил фильм «Любовь без правил» (у него 0 зрителей), получивший 6 миллионов рублей госфинансирования. Продюсер картины Дмитрий Астрахан заявил радиостанции «Говорит Москва», что эта информация не соответствует действительности, а ленту показывала компания «Каропрокат».

Business Insider and Campfire produce WeWork documentary - Business Insider
Business Insider and Campfire are making a documentary about the rise and fall of WeWork.
It's the story of what happens when Silicon Valley greed goes haywire and the idea of building a big business becomes more important than the fundamentals.
It's also the story of a charismatic leader who both hoodwinked investors and was enabled by them as they tried to drive returns on their investments. Thousands of employees are now paying the price.
Got a tip for the documentary? Contact me at Or get in touch with one of our leading WeWork reporters, Meghan Morris, on Signal at (646) 768-1627 using a nonwork phone, Twitter DM @MeghanEMorris, or email at
