Movies love a comeback story. This summer, it's their turn.

Hollywood is bringing out some of its biggest and most reliable players for the 2022 summer movie season, which unofficially kicks off this weekend with the help of Marvel and Disney’s “ Doctor Strange and the Multitverse of Madness ” and runs through the end of August. It’s an uncertain time for the movie business as studios and exhibitors are still making up for losses incurred during the pandemic and adjusting to new ways of doing business, including shortened release windows, competition from streaming and the need to feed their own services. And everyone is wondering if moviegoing will ever return to pre-pandemic levels.

But though the pandemic lingers on, there is optimism in the air.

Beat Sheet Creation in Screenwriting

What steps should your movie have that represent beats in the story?

There is no rule for this, and it will all depend on the genre, length and style of your piece. But Hollywood films all fall into a classic narrative structure that is divided into 3 acts with clear beginning, middle and ending parts.

This is as good as movies are going to get

The debate over big box office superhero films dominating the landscape has reached a fever pitch. While studios like Marvel and Warner Bros corner the market with their high octane feature films, you might be surprised to know that the highest grossing movies of 2022 weren’t comic book movies.

The highest-grossing movies of 2022 are romantic comedies: The Lost City, starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, and a family film about a guy and his dog.

So what does all this mean for audiences who crave an array of genres and niche film productions?

Outside of horror, superheroes, and family, it’s going to have to feel like the most spectacular, special event” to get people to see a movie in a theater, says producer Jason Blum. That’s fine for Blum, whose Blumhouse Productions specializes in horror movies people still leave their houses to see, like Get Out and The Purge (our CEO Gerard McMurray directed the latest installment.)

Okay. But what about the great streaming future, currently showing on our giant, cheap TVs at home? Beyond all the Oscar-nominated movies they offer, there’s more great stuff there than ever before — from traditional TV networks like AMC (Better Call Saul returns next week) and streamers like Apple (I’m really interested in Severance) and hybrids like HBO Max (at first I wasn’t into Winning Time, but now I am).

But there’s a problem there, too.. Read More https://www.vox.com/recode/2022/4/13/23022908/movies-theaters-future-peter-kafka

Hollywood Cheat Sheet: Scripts/Screenplays

When scriptwriting, your script, also known as a screenplay, should detail character dialogue, scene settings, and actions that take place throughout a film, TV show, or another visual story. Your screenplay should properly tell your film’s entire story from start to finish because it’s a blueprint of the plot and character development before the film comes to life on screen.

There's a great resource for you to develop your writing and flush out characters more. https://www.nfi.edu/script-writing/

Auditioning for a role in a television or film project can be very exciting. It can also be VERY stressful. Avoid the pitfalls by following these great acting tips!

The short list:

--Be nice to everyone -- the receptionist might be the casting director's sister. The director might look like an intern.

--Don’t blame or complain -- the person that didn't give you the script ahead of time might be the person hiring you.

-Don't schmooze – the audition room is not the place for that.

-Try to relax – remember the casting director is rooting for you and want you to do well.

-Don’t turn the lobby/waiting room into a social hour. Loud talking and laughing is rude to the actors in the auditioning room

-Don’t follow up your audition with a barrage of emails. If you are selected you will be contacted.

-A follow-up thank you note is always appreciative.

Per The The Hollywood Reporter Filmmaker Gerard McMurray, who took audiences to the early days of The Purge franchise with The First Purge, is stepping into a whole new universe. The filmmaker will write and direct an adaptation of Black, the comic book that takes place in a universe in which only Black people possess superpowers.
