Very nice Kevin.

Did Netflix say anything else about The Other Side of the Wind and ILM?

Funny you should ask. Instead of a direct reply to what I sent, I got an email from somebody else at netflix about 15 hours later, discussing OTHER projects and who I would need to contact to get more information on them. Couldn't tell if it was a mass-mailing that coincidentally went out right after I sent my WIND query or just a polite way of putting me off.

About three-quarters of the netflix stories I've tried to do have gone off without a hitch, but there were a few where I just couldn't get anybody on the phone or to even answer or acknowledge emails (13 REASONS WHY was one of those, which was annoying becaue the DP's agency was dying to set up an interview.) The projects involving Soderberg last fall were problematic too -- I waited months on MOSAIC before they decided to not offer up any interviewees (I think that was an internal production call, not netflix), and the production entity for the western he had a hand in, Scott Frank's GODLESS, didn't respond until past my delivery date.

I've also re-asked this year about their HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE project, but not gotten anything back about a release date or any other detail, even though I have already covered that DP/Director collab on their BEFORE I SLEEP film (which had a lot of nice on-set interactives to cue otherworldly realm VFX.)

I know that if one particular name as PR contact comes up on a netflix project, I will probably refuse to take the assignment, since I sent that person something like 40 emails last year about three separate projects, and only once ever gotten a (non-useful) response. But that does seem to be the exception, as I wound up completing nine Netflix stories in the span of maybe half-a-year, more from them than any other entity by far.

I love their openness about their projects. I also love Netflix's model and platform. They have tapped into platform that is a part of the future of movie distribution. But, they made a mistake withholding The Other Side of the Wind from Cannes. This was Welles' final film and denying it a screening at Cannes of all places was a mistake. Screen the film in a theater and let people watch the final film from a master of cinema in that environment. Hopefully, they will give this film a limited release in some of the bigger markets before launching it online. This film from a master filmmaker deserves it.

Speaking of Netflix:

They go BIG. $150 million is their largest budget to date. Bay is shooting for a 2019 release. That also means Robopocalypse is subsequently still a ways off. At this rate, the robopocalyse will really happen before the movie is out.

Official trailer for MI6: Fallout:

These movies are getting better and better for me. It is 2018 and a Tom Cruise movie is my most anticipated this Summer. Unthinkable. But they finally have a great team concept going and the set pieces are as great as ever.

Top Gun 2 started filming yesterday as well. Wonder if ILM will do some of the VFX or Double Negative?

Unless Eric Barba is already on-set supervising vfx for Top Gun 2 and then segueing directly into Terminator 3, then I would suspect DNeg is doing it as the producers have experience with them as well.

Seeing Mission Impossible 6 in exactly 1 day from now so this message will self destruct in 5..4..3..2..1 :wink: it has superb reviews so far not sure its a good sign the PR machine is working or a good sign the movie is actually any good. I loved the last 2 so as long as its more of the same I will be more than happy! Will report back in a day or so with a non spoiler review.

Has anyone seen this fantastic horror / family drama called "Hereditary"? Almost a masterpiece for me, it's incredible that it's the first movie of Ari Aster: He has an amazing eye and he is capable of handling suspence very well.
