  • THE BRIEF: From anthems to tantrums
    Wednesday March 21st 2012

    GE’s new brief is an American idea whose time has come. Again. GE’s dancing elephants were a delightful metaphor for innovation. But these are not delightful times. These tough times call for big stories and a strong dose of American heroism here and there. And here comes GE to save the day. GE says they polled their employees last year – manufacturing workers, researchers, and corporate managers, over 130,000 people in the U.S. – and asked them to describe the work they do at GE. The employees rose in unison and said. “…the work [we] do builds, powers, moves and cures the world.” The Brief wonders, is that all?

  • Disney says ‘John Carter’ to lose $200 million
    Tuesday March 20th 2012

    “John Carter” is now officially a flop of galactic proportions. The Walt Disney Co. said Monday that it expects to book a loss of $200 million on the movie in the quarter through March. That’s among Hollywood’s biggest money-losers ever. Directed by Pixar’s Andrew Stanton, the 3-D effects-laden movie about a Civil War veteran transplanted to Mars was already headed to the “Red Ink Planet,” according to Cowen & Co. analyst Doug Creutz. Yet he expected a write-down of about half that size.

  • America’s film classificaton system ‘should be changed’
    Monday March 19th 2012

    The documentary Bully follows the lives of five children who experience abuse daily but the rating means it will not be shown in schools and many young people, who the makers wanted to see the film, will not be able to. The decision by the Motion Picture Association of America, which oversees movie ratings, has been contrasted with the much more lenient PG-13 label it gave to The Hunger Games, an forthcoming science fiction epic in which 12 teenagers are selected to take part in a death match until only one is left. More than 300,000 people, including Hollywood stars Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep, have signed a petition asking the MPAA to give Bully the same rating as The Hunger Games.
