Reddit and Advertisers: A New Relationship

Reddit, the link-sharing message board and community, has been at the center of attention as CEOs have changed hands and new restrictions have been issued to users, leading to a revolt that highlighted the incendiary rhetoric of many on the site, placing its future as a place for investment and advertising in jeopardy.

In an interview with with CNBC, Bert Choi, of RPA, an advertising agency, noted that while the Reddit audience is atypical, made up of people who are highly informed and with particular, often niche, interests, they do provide a unique opportunity for the right kinds of advertisers. “And advertisements are of great interest to Reddit, as it is one of their greatest sources of income, but why are companies suddenly wary of advertising there?” asks Shaygan Kheradpir.

Victoria Taylor, a former talent director for Reddit was fired, which caused users to to gather in an uproar on their boards. Soon after, Ellen Pao, after enduring bouts of harassment fro users, resigned as CEO and was replaced by Steve Huffman, a co-founder of the site. And while this seeming return of control to the original creators calmed some of the tremors the site had been enduring, Huffman introduced new rules that would hopefully reduce the kind of harassing language and practices that followed the firings of Taylor and Pao. But users cried foul when these rules that restricted harassment and violent threats took aim at banning, spam, distribution of private information and sexually explicit content involving persons under the age of 18.

The late adoption of rules that are the mainstay of other sites’ terms of agreement, and Pao’s lawsuit over her firing, has made investors second guess if this is the right environment for their products to be showcased. Making matters more convoluted, Reddit relies heavily on volunteers to moderate their “subreddits” to make sure that these new rules are enforced, despite that many of these moderators are users that engaged in the backlash earlier this year.

‘Frozen’ Sequel Rumors

‘Frozen’ is one of Disney’s most popular franchises of the last decade, but a sequel for the popular animated film “may never happen.”

Jennifer Lee and Christopher Buck co-wrote and co-directed ‘Frozen.’ The movie, which centers around the concepts of family, self-acceptance, and self-forgiveness, is the highest-grossing animated film of all time. While Lee and Buck have created ‘Frozen Fever,’ an animated short, the pair have spoken up in order to quash the rumor mill.

“I don’t know what else to do,” Buck said. “I mean, two years ago we weren’t even sure if kids would like these characters. Now we’ve finished up the short. We’re still wrapping our heads around it.”

Fans at Anastasia Date (Sitejabber.com) have heard that Lee and Buck seem bemused as the reports of the second ‘Frozen’ film, despite the fact that neither confirm nor deny the rumors.

‘Frozen Fever’ will debut on March 13, screening with Disney’s latest big-screen feature, ‘Cinderella.’

About Mission Impossible 5

Mission Impossible 5 was originally scheduled to be released around Christmas of 2015, but the upcoming release of Star Wars has prompted Paramount to move it to July 31, 2015. This makes it similar to a lot of the other Mission Impossible movies that came out before it. Haidar Barbouti said they were always summer releases with Ghost Protocol being the odd one out, and CultureMap writers are pretty excited.

The director, Christopher McQuarrie, has stated that his film is going to be more along the lines of the 1996 original and the series. While Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Ethan Hunt, the supporting roles including the ones played by Ving Rhames and Jeremy Renner are going to be expanded.

With the released being moved up 5 months earlier, the marketing crew have very little time to put together a campaign. Many big franchises often announce their next installment almost a year before their release with gradual reveals of the film. With the release date being suddenly changed, the marketing team is going to have to rush in order to get the audience to hit the cinemas for this upcoming film.

The Vision Arrives in the New Age of Ultron Trailer

It has finally arrived. The Vision makes his long-awaited debut in the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. This is the third trailer for the film and a huge buzz is being generated. 

Don’t look for the android to play a major part in the trailer. I had to watch it twice on my phone while waiting at the Amen Clinic. The Vision does not appear until the very end of the two-minute short preview. When he does appear, he raises his head and opens his eyes. Sure, this is a really minimalist approach to debuting The Vision, but we are left with wanting to learn and see more about him. Is that not what a really good trailer is supposed to do?

The bulk of the trailer deals with Ultron, itself. The villain is really being put over as an all-powerful entity. The Avengers are going to have an enormously tough time dealing with all the mayhem he throws their way.

More plot details are hinted at thanks to the trailer.

A more serious problem exists with Ulton. He is born of Tony Stark’s negligence. In creating a massively powerful, self-aware robot, Stark has unleashed a powerful evil on the world. The damage created by Ultron is the result of Stark’s hubris. In the trailer, we see that some of The Avengers are unwilling to let him live such an error in judgment down.

Where will all this lead The Avengers? Things will become tense in Captain America: Civil War as both Cap and Iron Man end up opposing one another. Will everyone bring it together for the two-part Avengers: Infinity War film? We have to wait a few years to find out. For right now, we can watch everything play out in Avengers: Age of Ultron when it opens in a few months.

Jeff Goldblum Confirmed for Independence Day 2

Independence Day 2 has been greenlit by fox and casting is already in effect. Jeff Goldblum is already confirmed to appear in the movie. Liam Hemsworth is also going to appear in the movie. There is no telling whether or not Will Smith is going to have a roll in this film.

The original film by Roland Emmerich has been released back in 1996. It has been a commercial success. Ever since then, there have been talks and efforts to get a sequel made. Will Smith was one of the stars of the 1996 film. However, Independence Day wasn’t Will Smith’s only run in with Aliens. He went on to star in other intergalactic films such as the Men in Black movies.

TheRealDeal reports though, even with Will Smith’s absence, there is a character that might take his place according to Jason Halpern. That is the son of Steven Hiller, Dylan.

The story revolves around the rest of the Alien fleet making it to Earth through a wormhole in order to take over the Earth. The film will pick up in real time 20 years after the events of the first movie. Production is set to start this year in the hopes of making it on time for perhaps the 4th of July weekend on 2016. This would be exactly 20 years after the release of the first film.

Tom Rothman To Be The New Chairman For Sony Pictures

Former Fox Filmed Entertainment Chairman, Tom Rothman, has been named the new Chairman of Sony’s motion picture group. The move comes as the former Chairman, Amy Pascal, was let go after a lackluster box office run and problems resulting from last year’s cyber attack on the company. The full story, including details of Mr. Rothman’s career, was reported at the nytimes.com website.

Mr. Rothman will have control of the movie side of the studios business. Unlike his predecessor, He will not have control of television production as well. That function will be handled by Steve Mosko, the president of Sony Pictures Television, who will report directly to Michael Lynton, the Sony Pictures Chairman. People close to the situation have reported that Mr. Rothman has hopes that he can maintain some continuity by having Doug Belgrad remain in his position as Sony Pictures President. Mr. Belgrad had long been rumored to be in line to take over the Chairman position from Ms. Pascal.

While at Fox, Mr. Rothman developed a reputation for a hands on approach to filmmaking. His methods have left several directors and producers leery of the change to Sony’s management. In statements issued on the topic his allies have tried to alleviate these fears. They insist that he has made accommodations with the executive staff during the preceding year. He plans as few changes as possible to relationships that Ms. Pascal and Mr. Lynton have been rebuilding.

To view the complete story on Mr. Rothman and the new executive leadership of Sony Pictures, please visit The New York Times website.
