The Making of ‘Little America’

The Making of ‘Little America’
The anthology series Little America has turned out to be both the first great new show of 2020 and the first great series from AppleTV+. Across its eight-episode first season (Apple has already ordered a second), the series follows immigrants from all over the world as they experience America in different ways, with stories as apt to generate smiles as well as tears.

One of the key creative forces on the series is Lee Eisenberg, who in his days writing for The Office shared responsibility, ironically, for some of that show’s darkest episodes,

How 'Little America' Showrunner Lee Eisenberg Cast International Actors Under Trump's Travel Ban
Little America doesn't look like a lot else on Lee Eisenberg's résumé. There's no straight-line comparison between the Apple TV+ immigrant anthology series and, say, The Office, on which he wrote for five seasons, or the raunchy summer comedy hit Good Boys, which he wrote and directed with longtime partner Gene Stupnitsky (only Stupnitsky got the DGA credit).

Yet, Little America's roots are deeply personal, says Eisenberg, 42, with his own father, who emigrated from Israel before Lee was born, serving as inspiration. He enlisted Epic Media (whose magazine publishes extraordinary true-life tales) to help find its stories ...

The 12 Films of 2019 That Tell Us 2020 Box Office and Industry Trends

The 12 Films of 2019 That Tell Us 2020 Box Office and Industry Trends
Year-end lists are a matter of taste and can say more about the writer than the subject. Annual box office summaries are statistics-based and often miss the bigger stories at hand.

So in an attempt at something different, we are going to cite 12 films of note not as hits or misses, but what they mean for future productions.

Wide Release

The Lion King (Disney)

The film that showed the strength of the overwhelmingly dominant studio was this technically updated remake of their 1994 animated smash. Both versions grossed over $400 million domestic: adjusted, 1994 would be $805 million and #20 all time; 2019 was $544 million and a bit more than double that overseas.

But what really makes this smash stand out is it came in the face of mediocre reviews and social media scorn questioning why a new version was necessary.

That damn-the-torpedoes success sends the message that the public has a mind of its own.

2019 Box Office on Track to Be Second Biggest in U.S. History

  • MovieWeb
It's been a big year at the movies. So much so that 2019 is going to wind up as one of the biggest years ever at the U.S. box office. It's been a year defined by massive event movies, sequels and superheroes. It's been a year that saw one of the biggest media mergers in history, with Disney purchasing Fox in a landmark $71.3 billion deal. That deal is set to define the box office for years to come and, if 2019 was any indication, rival studios will be struggling to play catch up.

As of this writing, U.S. ticket sales have totaled $11.26 billion and it's projected that the year will finish up with a total between $11.36 billion and $11.4 billion. At present, 2018 is the biggest year ever for ticket sales in the U.S., with $11.9 billion. In 2016, U.S. ticket sales hit $11.38 billion, so depending on how the year shakes out,

‘Cats’ Headed for $100 Million Box Office Loss

‘Cats’ Headed for $100 Million Box Office Loss
Universal’s “Cats” was in need of a holiday miracle. Instead, the filmmaking team behind the box office disaster got a lump of coal.

Tom Hooper’s big-screen adaptation has clawed its way to $38 million globally after two weeks in theaters, a dismal figure that could result in $100 million in theatrical losses, according to rival studio executives.

After its disappointing $6.5 million domestic debut ahead of Christmas, “Cats” failed to gain any traction during the busiest time of year for moviegoing. In its sophomore outing, the film was relegated to No. 9 on box office charts, scraping together $8.7 million over the five-day holiday frame. Audiences, dissuaded by brutal reviews, instead made the Jellicle choice to see Disney’s “Frozen 2,” “Spies in Disguise,” or essentially anything that didn’t involve Judi Dench, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift and Idris Elba pretending to be felines.
