At least he's got some projects in the works. Still haven't seen his Nick Cave doc.

I'm not watching the trailer. I'll watch the first two episodes in a movie theater! I'm excited! If I remember correctly, this season is only eight episodes long, unfortunately...

Tom Hardy To Star In Andrew Dominik’s ‘War Party’
via The Playlist

Deadline reveals that Tom Hardy is slated to star in “War Party,” which Dominik will direct, and Hollywood is beside themselves trying to get the rights to the film. Harrison Query is co-writing the movie with Dominik that will see Hardy play a Navy SEAL, though no other details are available at the moment. Studios are battling with each other to land the project, but apparently the deep pockets at Netflix are in the pole position, which makes sense given they snagged the rights to Domink’s Marilyn Monroe pic “Blonde“ last year.

Speaking of which, what’s going on with that project? Long in development, it’s still in stasis and one wonders if it’s going to get bumped back again. No word on when “War Party” might roll, but it could be a way off, as Hardy has the gangster flick “Fonzo,” J.C. Chandor‘s “Triple Frontier,” and the second season of “Taboo” all on his slate.

Netflix will explore mobile-specific cuts of its original series
via The Verge

Accommodating for smaller screens

Netflix chief product officer Neil Hunt said in a briefing today with journalists in San Francisco that the company plans to explore streaming mobile-specific cuts of its original movies and TV shows, to satisfy what he said was a growing audience of mobile Netflix watchers.

“It’s not inconceivable that you could take a master [copy] and make a different cut for mobile,” Hunt said. To date, Netflix hasn’t been delivering different cuts for different viewing platforms, Hunt said, but “it’s something we will explore over the next few years.”

The idea to be would be to create a version of the content with scenes or shots that are more easily visible or immersive on a mobile phone, since certain shots can be hard to see or can appear diminished on a relatively small phone screen.

Hunt, who has been with Netflix since 1999 and is one of the company’s top executives, made the remarks as part of a two-day event at Dolby Laboratories and Netflix’s own headquarters, as the two companies gear up for the launch of Iron Fist. Much of the conversation so far has centered around the series being shot natively in HDR, a method that offers a more dynamic range of colors on the TV or movie screen in front of you. But Hunt, along with Dolby executives, emphasized that HDR isn’t just for big-screen viewing.

It’s been about a year since Netflix became available globally — with the exception of a few markets, including China, and since then it has seen mobile usage soar. In established markets like the US and Canada, most Netflix watching still happens on TVs, Hunt said; but in some Asian countries, especially India, “mobile screens are the majority consumption device.”

Baby Driver
After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.
Written and Directed by Edgar Wright

I saw this on Saturday at SXSW. While it's not without its flaws, it's a very inspired movie.
99% of the movie is choreographed to match what is playing on the main character's iPod. The first ten minutes of the movie are pretty mindblowing. It slows just a little before the finale and the love interest doesn't really get too fleshed out, but this is something I think I'll end up re-watching over and over.
