“The Boys” Teaser Trailer From Amazon Released

By Creative Media Times

Amazon Video

A new trailer for Amazon Video upcoming superhero tv series “The Boys” has hit the web and its the right combo of weird and awesome.

“Job one is supporting the seven brave heroes who put themselves in harm’s way each and every day for us,” someone says on the trailer, to which “Wee” Hughie Campbell (played by Jack Quaid) explicitly responded to.

Developed by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen, “The Boys” is an adaptation of the comic book series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson which was originally published in 2006 by DC Comics imprint WildStorm and then later picked up by Dynamite Entertainment.

The trailer is violent and offbeat as one might expect from Ennis, who also serves as one of the executive producers.

There is plenty of talent involved in this, including Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Elisabeth Shue as Madelyn Stillwell, Erin Moriarty as Annie January / Starlight, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Jessie Usher as A-Train, Chace Crawford as The Deep, Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Karen Fukuhara as Female and Tomer Kapon as Frenchie.

“The Boys” is set to be released on Amazon Prime Video sometime in 2019.

See official synopsis below:

In a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, The Boys centers on a group of vigilantes known informally as “The Boys,” who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than their blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty. THE BOYS is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and Vought – the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes. THE BOYS is scheduled for a 2019 release.

SiriusXM To Acquire Pandora Streaming Service

By Creative Media Times

Satellite radio giant SiriusXM is reportedly buying music streaming service Pandora Media Inc. in an all-stock deal said to be valued at $3.5 billion, a press release announced on Monday.

The merger will create “world’s largest audio entertainment company, with more than $7 billion in expected pro-forma revenue in 2018 and strong, long-term growth opportunities.”

SiriusXM has 36 million subscribers across North America while Pandora, a streaming music service founded in 2000, has 70 million-plus monthly active users, the largest digital audio audience in United State. Liberty Media is SiriusXM’s parent company.

There is some precedence that led to the deal. Back in Jun 2017, SiriusXM invested $480 million in Pandora, which gave it 19 percent stake in the streaming service.

Jim Meyer, Chief Executive Officer of SiriusXM, said, “We have long respected Pandora and their team for their popular consumer offering that has attracted a massive audience, and have been impressed by Pandora’s strategic progress and stronger execution. We believe there are significant opportunities to create value for both companies’ stockholders by combining our complementary businesses. The addition of Pandora diversifies SiriusXM’s revenue streams with the U.S.’s largest ad-supported audio offering, broadens our technical capabilities, and represents an exciting next step in our efforts to expand our reach out of the car even further. Through targeted investments, we see significant opportunities to drive innovation that will accelerate growth beyond what would be available to the separate companies, and does so in a way that also benefits consumers, artists, and the broader content communities. Together, we will deliver even more of the best content on radio to our passionate and loyal listeners, and attract new listeners, across our two platforms.”

Roger Lynch, Chief Executive Officer of Pandora, said, “We’ve made tremendous progress in our efforts to lead in digital audio. Together with SiriusXM, we’re even better positioned to take advantage of the huge opportunities we see in audio entertainment, including growing our advertising business and expanding our subscription offerings. The powerful combination of SiriusXM’s content, position in the car, and premium subscription products, along with the biggest audio streaming service in the U.S., will create the world’s largest audio entertainment company. This transaction will deliver significant value to our stockholders and will allow them to participate in upside, given SiriusXM’s strong brand, financial resources and track record delivering results.”

To this date, Jackson’s towering achievement remains the benchmark for other subsequent fantasy adventure movies.
