Hey Guys! This weekend, I am thinking to watch any motivational movie that can refresh my mind and increase my work efficiency. Suggest me some good inspirational movies to watch.
Mattel, Inc. announced the creation of Mattel Films, a new division of the Company focused on developing and producing motion pictures based on the Company's iconic and globally-recognized franchises. Academy Award-nominated producer Robbie Brenner has been appointed to lead Mattel Films as Executive Producer, reporting to Ynon Kreiz, Mattel's Chairman and CEO. Robbie Brenner will oversee Mattel Films, developing motion pictures based on Mattel’s iconic franchises. Mattel is free to develop studio options on such properties as Hot Wheels, American Girl, Fisher-Price and Thomas & Friends itself. Mattel Films then plans to find studio partners to produce the movies. Mattel and Sony had been developing a live-action Barbie movie, set to star Anne Hathaway, for 2020 release, but according to Mattel, that option has lapsed and that project is not moving forward. "Mattel is home to one of the world's greatest portfolios of beloved franchises, and the creation of Mattel Films will allow us to unlock significant value across our IP," said Mr. Kreiz. "Robbie is a gifted storyteller and a highly respected filmmaker with deep relationships in entertainment. She is the perfect leader to bring our celebrated brands to life." "Generations of children around the world have grown up with deep emotional connections to Mattel's brands and characters," said Ms. Brenner. "There are so many stories to be told and so many imaginations to be captured by these iconic brands, and I look forward to working with Ynon and his team to do so." Ms. Brenner was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture for Dallas Buyers Club, and her film Burden was a 2018 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award winner. She has held multiple leadership roles in the entertainment industry for the last two decades, including Partner and President of the film division at The Firm, as well as President of Production at Relativity Media. Ms. Brenner also ran the classics division at Davis Entertainment, and prior to this, she held Senior Vice President roles at both Twentieth Century Fox and Miramax. Ms. Brenner oversaw the production of dozens of movies, including Academy Award-winning The Fighter; the Snow White Adaptation Mirror Mirror, starring Julia Roberts; the 3-D epic, Immortals; the highly successful Nicholas Sparks book adaptions Dear John and Safe Haven. Ms. Brenner was also pivotal in the acquisition of the Sundance documentary Catfish, which became a cultural sensation, as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, Don Jon. In 2015, in recognition of her pioneering work, Ms. Brenner was invited to join the executive branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Additional Sources: THR
Seems like the Fourms recently went though some changes, including removing the TMNT section. Anyways, this forum topic will be used to mention about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles programming in Canada, for my fellow Canadians to know when TMNT related programming is on. While the Nickelodeon TMNT series has always been airing on YTV, it will now also be airing on both Teletoon and Nick Canada, as all 3 are own by Corus Entertainment. Before I continue, I live in the Eastern Time Zone, so I'm going to mention times for that time zone. Check your local listings. As well, keep in mind that many T.V. Services offer some of the same channels in different time zones, usually with a East and West version(Examples: YTV East, YTV West, Teletoon East, Teletoon West), so be aware the hours difference between your time zones and others(Example: If you live in the Eastern Time Zone and a show is at 1:00p.m., it will air 3 hours later on the West version of the channel at 4:00p.m.): - YTV: Staring on Saturday, September, 10, 2016, the Nick TMNT series will be on YTV on Weekends at 11:30a.m. YTV will most likely be the channel to see the more most recent episodes, as I also assume they will be showing the newer episodes/remaining episodes of Season 4 1st once they arrive in Canada. Currently though, it looks like YTV will be focusing on the older 4th season episodes. - Teletoon: Will be starting at the 1st Episode of the Nick TMNT series staring on Friday, September, 9, 2016. The 1st 2 episodes will air as 2 separate episodes on Friday, September, 9, 2016 from 6:30p.m.-7:30p.m., and shown again on late Friday, September, 9, 2016 night/early Saturday, September, 10, 2016 morning at around 1:30a.m.-2:30a.m. Then, starting on Friday, September, 16, 2016, the series will be on Fridays at 7:00p.m., with the same episode repeated on late Fridays/early Saturdays at around 2:00a.m. - Nick Canada: Looks like they will be showing the Nick TMNT series on Mondays-Sundays at 5:00p.m., as the same episode will be repeated on late Mondays-Sundays/early Tuesdays-Mondays at around 4:00a.m., as these will be older episodes of the series, starting with Season 1. As well, it appears that older 4th Season episodes will also be on Sundays at 12:30p.m., as it is possible that they may also show the newer episodes at this timeslot when they eventually arrive in Canada(Though I assume they will still be 1st shown on YTV for the most part). Here are the links to these various channels Nick TMNT webpages, with the 1st to YTV, the 2nd to Teletoon, and the last to Nick Canada's, which includes more info about the show, along with mentioning some of the time slots for the show(Though I should point out that YTV's currently isn't updated): - http://www.ytv.com/shows/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles - http://www.teletoon.com/en/tv/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles - http://www.nickcanada.com/show/showpage/81/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles
