#MOVIES: Universal and AMC Theatres strike a deal allowing new films to play at home sooner

Universal and AMC are mending their frayed relationship in a deal that not only reverses the theater chain's ban on Universal's movies but also appears to upend the traditional exclusivity model that studios and theaters have followed for decades.

Under the agreement, Universal's new films will have just three weekends — or 17 days — of exclusivity, rather than the customary 70 days. After that, Universal and its sister studio, Focus Features, has the option of releasing films on video on demand platforms.

That means that when "F9," the next film in the "Fast & Furious" franchise, hits theaters on April 2, 2021, consumers will have the choice to either see it in theaters or wait three weeks to buy or rent it at home.

That doesn't mean, however, that "F9" will pop up on NBCUniversal's new streaming service Peacock on day 18, but rather that consumers can watch it on a platform like iTunes at a premium price or in theaters.

The new multi-year dea applies only to AMC's US theaters, and it's unclear whether other studios will enter this new model in the future.

The announcement between Universal and AMC (AMC) is a watershed moment for Hollywood.

Theaters and studios have been grappling for years over the "theatrical window" — or how long a film should be available in theaters before being offered on other platforms. The window usually ran for about 70 days, but now — at least for Universal — has been cut down to just 17.

NEW COMPANY: Live Nation NYC President Anthony Makes Exits, Launches Brooklyn Made

Anthony Makes has departed his position as Live Nation New York President and is opening his own independent concert promotion company called Brooklyn Made.

Makes, a veteran of more than 30 years in the business, is returning to his roots and says he is “looking to redefine what it means to be a 21st century music company” and is building his new company “from the ground up” from his current home in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Makes got his start in the business with his own company, Mission Concerts, which he started in Toledo, Ohio, before joining what is now AEG Presents in its St. Louis office. A New York City native, he later returned home to work for Bowery Presents and returned to AEG before deciding to join Live Nation. With the opening of Brooklyn Made, he comes full circle.

Though the COVID-19 pandemic has the industry at a standstill, he sees it as a time of opportunity. Makes says he will take the next several months to get his business operations organized and be ready to hit the ground running when it is safe to do so. A longtime talent buyer for the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, N.Y., and Constellation Brands -- Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center (CMAC) in Canandaigua, N.Y., he has struck deals to continue to book those venues, as well as open rooms such as Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, Radio City Music Hall, Beacon Theatre, Town Hall, Hammerstein Ballroom, The Apollo Theater, Carnegie Hall and many others.

Makes is acutely aware that th New York market is a highly competitive one. But he believes Brooklyn Made will offer an alternative to major promoters that have consolidated much of the business at the club and theater levels.

SPORTS: Twitter, Disney And The NHL Form Partnership As Hockey Nears Its Return

As the National Hockey League nears its return to the ice on August 1, it has formed a partnership with Twitter and Disney Streaming Services to deliver new ways for fans to experience the action.

The teaming will deliver live look-ins via Twitter of select NHL games during the 2020 Stanley Cup qualifiers and playoffs to fans in the U.S. In a first, fans will be able to vote in Twitter polls to select which games will feature the live look-ins, which will see a minute or two of continuous action live-streamed on Twitter.

Each week during qualifying play and the first two rounds of the playoffs, the NHL will select two game nights per week that will feature the live Twitter look-ins. The frequency will ramp up to a minimum of five games during the conference finals and during every game of the Stanley Cup Finals. The initiative aims to drive tune-in to live game broadcasts on NBC Sports, regional sports networks and NHL Network as well as encourage fan interaction and conversation.

“NHL fans are fiercely passionate and are among the most engaged sports fans on social media,” said Heidi Browning, NHL Senior EVP and Chief Marketing Officer. “Everything our fans do shows us they want to have deeper connections with the League and our teams, and this exciting partnership with Twitter and Disney Streaming Services – especially during this unprecedented time of social distancing – provides the perfect platform to facilitate fan interaction and conversation, as well as drive broadcast tune-in.”

FUNDING: Odile Roujol launches fund for fashion and beauty start-ups

Former Lancôme CEO Odile Roujol has launched a 10 million dollar fund for fashion and beauty start-ups. The news was reported by WWD. Roujol, who moved to the U.S. four years ago, got the idea to launch the fund four years ago, which led to the new business, FAB Ventures. The fund focuses on direct-to-consumer fashion and beauty brands.

In addition to her past experience as CEO of Lancôme, Roujol also held stints at Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and L’Oréal over the course of her career. After leaving Lancôme, Roujol worked in advisory and angel investing roles, which is what inspired her to move to the U.S. and create FAB Ventures.

FAB Ventures recently closed a 10-million-dollar round of funding that will focus more specifically on clean beauty and wellness, sustainable luxury fashion and Femtech. Roujol’s first investment are in women’s reproductive health company Stix, sexual wellness product marketplace Bloomi, Dr. Elsa Jungman’s clean beauty line, hair-care line KhairPep, beauty product review website Very Good Light, eyelash extension system FoxEye, and shoe brand Thousand Fell.

Average investment checks from FAB Ventures are 250,000 dollars. Roujol wants brands that are focused on clean wellness and sustainability. She is also looking for brands founded by women and people of color.

SPORTS MOVES: United Talent Agency Names Super Agent Rich Paul to Board of Directors

Rich Paul, the CEO and founder of Klutch Sports Group and long-time agent of LeBron James, has been appointed to United Talent Agency’s board of directors.

Paul has headed UTA’s sports division and has been a UTA partner since the firm bought a “significant” stake in Klutch in July 2019.

The 38-year-old Paul founded Klutch in 2012 and has long served as an agent to James. At the time of the UTA investment, Paul had negotiated nearly $1 billion in contracts for a number of the NBA’s top athletes, which include Anthony Davis and Draymond Green.

“Our association with Rich Paul has been a true bright spot since he partnered with us a year ago,” UTA CEO and Board member Jeremy Zimmer said in a release. “We were determined to come together and build a cutting edge, full-service representation arm for athletes, and are well on our way. Adding Rich to the Board gives us additional perspective and support as we strive to be the best company for all our colleagues and clients. Rich has a keen and unblinking eye for the truth of how we all win together.”

Since joining forces with UTA, Klutch has expanded into professional football and baseball with acquisitions of Revolution Sports Agency and Tidal Sports Group, giving it significant weight in the NFL and MLB landscape.
