It does for the normal folks. The reviewers are still embargoed from saying much more than I liked it under penalty of not getting future early access should they rebel

Totally forgot that a) we're getting a Lion King prequel/Mufasa origin story to the new photo-realistic version and that b) Barry Jenkins will be directing it.

I hadn't heard about that at all! Interesting; wasn't the reaction to the remake mostly 'pretty, but "meh"'? But it made enough money, I guess.

Via THR:  IATSE to Hold a Strike Authorization Vote Amid Stalled Contract Talks

 

Quote

“Today, the AMPTP informed the IATSE that they do not intend to respond to our comprehensive package proposal presented to them over a week ago. This failure to continue negotiating can only be interpreted one way. They simply will not address the core issues we have repeatedly advocated for from the beginning,” international union president Matthew D. Loeb and 13 West Coast Local leaders wrote in a message to members on Monday. “As a result, we will now proceed with a nationwide strike authorization vote to demonstrate our commitment to achieving the change that is long overdue in this industry.”

The vote, which allows international union president Loeb to order a strike if members authorize it, at the very least pertains to all 13 West Coast locals of the union that are currently in talks for a three-year basic agreement, a group that includes Locals 44, 80, 600, 695, 700, 705, 706, 728, 729, 800, 871, 884 and 892. IATSE represents over 150,000 entertainment workers in the U.S. and Canada, including editors, grips, operators, cinematographers, sound technicians, costumers, make-up, hair stylists, writers assistants, script coordinators and others. Loeb, who was re-elected in July, has led the union since 2008.

Deadline's article has the full response from the AMPTP.  Besides compensation, one of the prominent concerns for the IATSE is excessively long workdays.  From last week:  IATSE Says It Received More Than 50 Reports Of 14-Hour Workdays In First 7 Months Of 2021 (via Deadline).

The IATSE has moved one step closer to a nationwide strike.

 

From the Variety article:

Quote

The vote included 13 locals on the West Coast, as well as 23 locals around the country, including in Georgia, Louisiana and New Mexico. All 36 locals voted in favor of the authorization, with the lowest margin being 96 percent in favor. In total, 52,706 members voted in favor of the authorization, out of 53,411 ballots cast. The eligible membership, across the 36 locals, is 59,478.

Factoring in the members who did not vote, the overall percentage for "yes" is 88.6% (52,706 divided by 59,478).

Whoa. 

Update:  Per the New Mexico Sheriff's Department, it was Alec Baldwin who "discharged" the firearm.  The victims were cinematographer Halyna Hutchins (IMDb) and director/writer Joel Souza (IMDb).

 
Edit:  Moving updates to the main Celebrity thread in the "Everything Else TV" subforum.
