FITS AND STARTS On Digital & VOD December 5

YouTube Red Coming October 28th

YouTube Red subscription will include gaming app, pending YouTube Music and access to Google Play Music

YouTube is synonymous with online video. Its user-generated videos generate the most monthly traffic (more than 1 billion viewers) of any website in the world. The Google-owned site has also quietly developed a cast of YouTube personalities (i.e. Justin Bieber, Michelle Phan) over the years, many of whom feature prominently in original programming.

Oct. 28 Google will bow YouTube Red, a $9.99 monthly SVOD service (following a free 30-day trial) featuring proprietary and third-party content from a variety of sources.

“It’s a major, major evolution of our business,” Robert Kyncl, chief business officer at YouTube, said at a Los Angeles press event. “Consumers are embracing paid subscriptions for ad-free content at an incredible pace. This marks an evolution in our desire to give fans more choice and features that they love.”

The launch is not YouTube's first foray into subscription-based content. In 2013, it launched third-party based SVOD channels that charged from 99 cents monthly for access. Notable channels included Lionsgate's BeFit featuring fitness trainers Jillian Michaels, Denise Austin, Jane Fonda, among others. It has generated more than 1 million subscribers.

Original YouTube Red programing includes:

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Incredibles 2 All-New Teaser Trailer, Poster & Image

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See The Disaster Artist In Cincinnati

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See The Disaster Artist on November 20th at 7:30 PM in Cincinnati.

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau — an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable — into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend — and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
