Sony Is Making Some Changes


Sony has adopted new standards to cut down on the number of PlayStation games that feature sexually explicit depictions of women, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal. Business Insider reports that the PlayStation 4 is the most popular video game console on the planet, with more than 90 million consoles and 800 million PlayStation games sold around the world. Sony said it changed its policy for approving new PlayStation games in response to the #MeToo movement and growing interest in livestreamers on platforms like Twitch and YouTube.

  • 'The Birth of a Nation' Sets $17.5 Million Selling Sundance Record

    Actor Nate Parker made history on Tuesday when his film, "The Birth of a Nation," premiered at Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. After receiving rave reviews and a standing ovation, Parker's historical epic drama about the 1831 slave rebellion in Virginia led by Nat Turner, was entered into an old fashioned post-screening bidding war that went late into the night at the Eccles Theater. Eventually, the film sold to Fox Searchlight for $17.5 million — making it the richest movie deal the festival has ever seen. Parker's directorial debut, which he wrote, produced and starred in, has been a passion project for seven years. Receiving a worldwide-rights deal from Searchlight, one of Hollywood's premiere prestige distributors, Parker turned down a larger $20 million cash outlay from Netflix, as well as bids from heavy hitters Sony, the Weinstein Company and Paramount.

  • Could A 'God Of War' Movie Star Jason Momoa?

    Jason Momoa has been keeping rather busy lately, what with his work as the mighty Aquaman in the forthcoming Justice League film. But he recently had a chance to kick back and talk to fans about what he’s doing next. Even though Sony doesn’t currently have any plans to do a God of War movie, the possibility is there, especially with the video game franchise making a comeback next year with an all-new game – not to mention the company’s interest in getting that Uncharted movie off the ground.

  • Sony Has R-Rated Plans For Its Spider-Man Cinematic Universe

    Sony has yet to debut any of its Spider-Man spin-offs, but the franchise is still making progress behind the scenes. Films like Venom and Silver & Black are currently in development, and more movies are expected to be announced as Sony’s cinematic plans expand. So, fans shouldn't be too surprised if the studio confirms plans for some R-rated Marvel ventures in the coming months.

  • Planet Of The Apes & The Big Sick Kill At The Box Office

    It’s no surprise that War for the Planet of the Apes took the top spot at the weekend box office. The big question is whether the third installment in the trilogy would give way to franchise fatigue like so many other franchises have this summer (Pirates of the Caribbean, Transformers, Alien). With a $57 million opening weekend, it falls well short of the second installment, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ($72 million), but it’s about even with the first installment, Rise of the Planet of the Apes ($54.8 million). Solid reviews and great word of mouth should also give Rise solid legs, especially as the movie skews older and the 35+ set is less anxious about seeing a movie on opening weekend. With only two major blockbusters left this summer (Dunkirk and The Dark Tower), it should also have plenty of runway to continue performing solidly for 20th Century Fox through August. $150 to $200 million is well within reach domestically, and this franchise performs even better internationally (Dawn scored $500 million overseas), so it should easily earn a profit for its studio, which (presumably) knew exactly when to stop, concluding the trilogy with a near-perfect ending. Hopefully, no one at 20th Century Fox gets the idea to force a fourth movie. While the Planet of the Apes franchise is winding down, the third iteration of the Spider-Man is just getting started, and in its second weekend, Spider-Man: Homecoming continues to perform solidly, adding $47 million to bring its ten-day total to $210 million (and it’s performing just as well overseas). Marvel has another hit on its hands, and it finally gives Sony a movie franchise it can count on after a string of disappointments (Ghosbusters, Men in Black 3 and the fading/ending Resident Evil and Underworld franchises). It’a amazing what a great script and Robert Downey Jr. can do. Third-week holdovers occupy the third and fourth positions this week. Despicable Me 3 continues to perform well, adding $19 million to bring its domestic total to $188 million. It’s also earned more than $430 million overseas. Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is also holding well and making a case for the sleeper hit of the summer. It added another $8.7 million and is quietly approaching $75 million on a $40 million price tag. Meanwhile, a huge congratulations to Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon, whose The Big Sick expanded nationwide this weekend and earned $7.5 million. Including its limited run, it’s now earned $15 million after being purchased for $12 million out of Sundance. It’s the best romantic comedy of this decade, so far, and I am hopeful that it can jumpstart the genre again and ultimately make Nanjiani a leading man. It really is such a great movie, and in my demo (35+ married folks) it has been the most anticipated movie of the summer, and the first “date” movie in months, if not longer. At least in my area, The Big Sick has been a boon for babysitters. In sixth place, Wonder Woman added $6.6 million to bring its total to $380 million, and it should overtake Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($386 million) for the second highest grossing film of 2017 by next weekend. Ryan Phillippe’s low-budget horror entry, Wish Upon, didn’t do so hot in its opening weekend. generating a meager $5.6 million on a $12 million budget. Bad reviews didn’t help, and that’s all I’m going to say about that. The rest of the top ten looks like this: Cars 3 ($2.9 million, $139 million cume); Transformers: The Last Knight ($2.7 million; $124 million); and The House with $1.8 million as it makes its way out of the top ten with a paltry $23 million.

  • ​PlayStation Now Will Soon Stream PS4 Games

    Hey gamers, you might soon able to stream Nioh, For Honor or Battlefield 1 through PlayStation Now.

At the time, Sony said it was shifting its focus and resources to PS4 and Windows PCs. With today's news, it appears it's making good on that move.
