They are spending between $20 and 30M to finish work on it.

It will either be a 4+ hour movie or formatted as a miniseries.
That seems like a lot of money to drop on a franchise that is effectively dead and subject to reboot. How much did they spend making the Donner Cut of Superman II?

It's a big expense because they're going to have to pay the actors to come back and do ADR and such. Plus they have to bring back the special effects team, editing and music team to finish post on it.

Even though this version of the DCEU is for all intents and purposes dead, it's still a brand name and it's a big part of what HBO Max's library is going to be. This will be an exclusive. I'm sure they will make a documentary as well about the movement and putting this version together.

I guess I should read the article. They're really going to get all the actors come back after quarantine just for this? At least this will excise the Superstache scenes, I would think.

Yeah I think all the scenes that Whedon shot are going into the trash.

HBO Max: WarnerMedia in Talks With Roku on Deal, Amazon Fire TV Appears to Be a No-Go

https://variety.com/2020/digital/new...tv-1234611730/

With seven days to go before HBO Max launches, WarnerMedia is racing to hammer out a deal with Roku to get the super-size streamer on Roku’s popular over-the-top TV platform. But sorry, Amazon Fire TV owners: It appears that HBO Max will not be there for you on May 27.

WarnerMedia and Roku are currently in negotiations on a pact for HBO Max, a Roku spokesperson confirmed to Variety.

The main sticking points on a HBO Max/Roku agreement likely revolve around how big a cut of subscription fees Roku will take, as well as WarnerMedia’s apparent insistence that HBO Max be made available as an app (without the option of being a channel add-on in the Roku Channel).

---------------------

WarnerMedia’s HBO Max talks with Amazon, meanwhile, could be at an impasse. Under existing agreements, HBO Now has been available on Fire TV platforms for nearly five years (and HBO subscriptions are available as an option through Amazon Prime Video Channels).

At an investment conference on May 13, AT&T incoming CEO John Stankey said, “I’m pleased to say we’re going to be in virtually all app stores” with HBO Max at launch — with “maybe one exception. It looks like we may not be in the Amazon Fire app store when all of this is said and done.”

Beyond rev-share terms for HBO Max, holdouts like Roku and Amazon are objecting to WarnerMedia’s push to have current HBO customers switch to HBO Max apps. That would mean current HBO customers who get the service through the Roku Channel or Prime Video Channels will be forced to move to the HBO Max app to get the expanded bucket of content — and thus leave the Roku and Amazon integrated video environments.

Damn it. I have all these discounted HBO Now gift cards. There is no way to sign up for the discounted price at HBO Max and use them.

I mean if your service isn't already active, you could sign up for a year of HBO Max and then when it's over start using the cards again. My service is still active so I just have to keep using the cards (I have enough to get me through the end of this year and will just hope for more this December). The discount pricing saves what $36 for one year? Not a huge deal and not as good as the cards, which would save $72 in a year, I think

They're documentary programs. Quite a number of them are on CuriosityStream at the moment.

Okay that makes sense. I figured it had to be rights reverting. I never had Curiosity Stream.

For anime, the biggest anime titles scheduled to launch would be from Studio Ghibli (Castle in the Sky, The Cat Returns, From Up On Poppy Hill, Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, My Neighbors the Yamadas, Nausicaδ of the Valley of the Wind, Ocean Waves, Only Yesterday, Pom Poko, Ponyo, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, The Secret World of Arrietty, Spirited Away, The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, Tales From Earthsea, When Marnie Was There, Whisper of the Heart). The Wind Rises was initially announced to launch sometime this fall, but it's not 100% if that got moved up or not.

In addition to Studio Ghibli, Crunchyroll (part of WarnerMedia) will stream select anime titles at launch. Titles include 91 Days, Berserk, Bungo Stray Dogs, ERASED , Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, In/Spectre, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, Keep Your Hands off Eizouken, Kill la Kill, Kiznaiver, KONOSUBA -God's Blessing on this Wonderful World!, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- (Director’s Cut), Rokka -Braves of the Six Flowers, Rurouni Kenshin, Schwarzes Marken, The Testament of Sister New Devil, and Your Lie in April. Death Note and Hunter x Hunter are to stream at a later date.

The Gossip Girl update has been postponed until 2021. They have not even started shooting yet because of the production shutdowns.

I think a lot of the scripted HBO Max originals are going to be postponed until 2021 or 2022.

Michael Mann was working on Tokyo Vice in Japan and they also had to shutdown.

That is what I am going to do. Get cheaper price now then use cards in a year. Hopefully they are good!

I canceled my iTunes-based HBO Now with one day to go, and just reactivated my subscription for the $11.99 promo. Honestly not sure it was worth it for $36, but I guess it was only 10 minutes of my time. Besides, why give Apple money for no reason.

On Sunday I was going to watch John Oliver then realized I had canceled. I did watch the sports segment on YouTube.

Re: HBO Max — Warnermedia streaming service launches May 2020

I have HBO through DirecTV, so I assume there will be some kind of sign in credential option on it since I'm technically paying through an AT&T company.

I thought about cancelling my HBO subscription and then just signing up through this. But, I'm currently on multiple promos on DirecTV through July.

Once this launches, I might as well delete HBO Go off my Apple TV, Roku and iPad as I will never use that app ever again.

Altice USA, Cox Communications, Microsoft, National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC), Samsung, Sony and Verizon have joined AT&T, Apple, Charter, Google, Hulu and YouTube TV in offering HBO Max to their customers when the service launches May 27...

HBO Max will be made available at launch to independent cable and broadband operators – including WOW!, Atlantic Broadband, RCN, Grande Communications & Wave, and MCTV – through a new agreement with NCTC
That article gives details on how to activate HBO Max for the various services.

The big exceptions at the moment are Comcast, Amazon, and Roku.

The Gossip Girl update has been postponed until 2021. They have not even started shooting yet because of the production shutdowns.

I think a lot of the scripted HBO Max originals are going to be postponed until 2021 or 2022.

Michael Mann was working on Tokyo Vice in Japan and they also had to shutdown.
Is this going to be like an update version of Miami Vice, just set in Japan? If so, I am in. I am a huge Miami Vice fan.
