Christopher Nolan Will Not Watch a Movie on a Smartphone Because He Still Doesn’t Have One

Published

In a recent interview with People magazine timed for this week’s home video release of Tenet, Nolan reiterated his stance concerning some of the staples of modern living.

“It’s true that I don’t have a smartphone,” the director said. He explained that he does have a flip phone, but only takes it with him “from time to time.”

“I’m easily distractible so I don’t really want to have access to the internet every time when I’m bored,” he added.

He then slipped in a remark that appears to work against previous reports. “When I’m working,” he said, “I’m just surrounded by, I mean, everybody’s got a phone. I can’t hide, so I’m very easy to get in touch with when I’m working.”

Earlier this year Anne Hathaway suggested that Nolan did not allow chairs on the set of his movies. Nolan’s representatives clarified that he meant he only didn’t allow chairs for him and the only things banned were cigarettes and cell phones. (It was conceded that the phone ban was not always successful.)

In his chat with People, Nolan also stated that email is out. “I just have never been particularly interested in communicating with people in that way. I prefer just calling people from a landline.”

As everyone knows, nothing sounds crisper and cleaner than a landline, and it’s the only method of telephony that can withstand a prolonged power outage. One can endlessly debate the use of film versus video in image capture for motion pictures, but on this one anyone who disagrees with Nolan is simply incorrect.

While the director seems to have cooled down a bit since his initial statement concerning Warner Bros. shifting their 2021 slate to HBOMax, he continued to express his love for the totality of movies, from production through exhibition.

“When people talk about the movie business they tend to think about movie stars, highly paid directors and stuff,” he said. “Really,” he continued “you’re talking about hundreds of thousands of people, ordinary people, who work in theaters, who scoop popcorn and sell tickets.”

Netflix raises prices on all plans in US

Netflix raises prices on all plans in US

In the United States, Netflix has raised the cost of all of its plans as of right now. A $15.50 monthly increase in the basic plan and a $20 monthly increase in the 4K plan are being announced by the corporation. The entry-level package, which excludes HD, will now cost $10 per month instead of $9. 

New customers will be hit with the increases right away. Current Netflix customers may expect the price increase to be implemented “gradually,” with a 30-day notice via email.

The cost of a Netflix subscription has risen substantially in recent years. The regular plan climbed to $14 per month from $13 in late 2020, after earlier rising to $13 from from $11 in 2019. Netflix hiked its fees in 2017 and 2015 before that. Due to the company’s concern over losing customers due to a $1 per month price rise, Netflix allowed existing members to maintain their subscription rates for an additional two years after the first announcement in 2014. Since then, it hasn’t provided such a large benefit.

The price rises come amid a profitable yet tough era for Netflix. The corporation already has a multitude of members across the US, and getting more is a struggle — making price rises an apparent option for how it might generate more money. At the same time, Netflix is now competing with many other significant streaming services for attention, like Disney Plus and HBO Max, and it’s been spending big on content to stay up.

“We’re updating our prices so that we can continue to offer a wide variety of quality entertainment options,” a Netflix representative told Reuters. “As always we offer a range of plans so members can pick a price that works for their budget.”

It’s not only Netflix that’s recently raised fees. In October, Hulu raised the monthly fee for both its ad-supported and ad-free plans by $1.

Skinned Monkey’s  Artwork of Kanye West’s New Song Gets Slammed from PETA

PETA has taken issue with the album cover artwork that Kanye West and The Game have chosen for their upcoming collaboration.

A skinned monkey with a blood-red backdrop was used by both rappers on Instagram on Thursday night to advertise their upcoming single. The image was taken by Nick Knight. The shot was captioned by Ye and Game with the name of their collaboration. They both said in their blogs, “MY LIFE WAS NEVER EASY.”

There was no time to waste before PETA President Ingrid Newkirk sent a statement to Billboard.

This image resembles the monkeys PETA has found in meat markets around the world and it makes it clear that when you remove the fur, you can’t miss that there’s a person in there, that they are fellow primates, and do not belong to us to abuse for any purpose,” Newkirk said. “When you remove the fur, you can’t miss the fact that there’s a person in there, that they are fellow primates, and do not belong to us.”

If you’d like to see the Instagram post in question and Nick Knight’s original artwork that inspired it, you can do so by scrolling down.

KANYE WEST INVESTIGATED FOR BATTERY AFTER HE ALLEGEDLY PUNCHED A MAN

KANYE WEST INVESTIGATED FOR BATTERY AFTER HE ALLEGEDLY PUNCHED A MAN

A Viral Video  shows a guy lying on the street while Kanye West, who is accused of assaulting an autograph seeker, rages at others who appear to work for him.

DTLA’s Soho Warehouse was the scene of an apparent attack at 3 A.M., as previously reported, and Ye was outraged. “get away from me” screams him at a woman who is attempting to calm him down towards the beginning of the video. Despite her reassurances, he stormed off in a rage, saying, “I am your family,” We’ve been told that the woman in question is Ye’s relative.

There are reports that Kanye punched the man twice — once in the skull and once in the neck — and as the autograph seeker fell, his head hit the ground hard, according to eyewitness accounts.

Kanye is claimed to have urged a small group of individuals outside the building not to snap photographs and muttered something about them not understanding what he’s going through right now. At that point, when someone responded by saying, ” it’s okay, we all go through family stuff …,” Ye reportedly unleashed the two punches he was accused of delivering.

As Kanye was leaving a late-night recording session at a Hollywood studio, a video showed him furious and in route to downtown Los Angeles.

I can’t make out what he was saying to the two women, but it looks like they were the same ones he was with downtown when the alleged incident happened.

However, we’re told that the claimed victim is currently being checked out at urgent care — and as we previously reported, the LAPD is investigating Kanye for battery.
