Wonder Women

CW, Warner Bros. Explore Casting The Lead In Wonder Woman Origin Project – Meet Iris
Waner Bros. TV (the studio behind The CW) has hired a casting director to search for a a women to become the lead role of Wonder Woman. A breakdown of the role has been released and story writter Allen Hienburg has written that "chronicles the female superhero’s life as a young Amazonian, before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers." However her name is now Iris and not Diana (as before). never the less this has been one of the CW's greatest year's and if Wonder Women comes out great it would make the franchise a whole lot stronger.
This article shows how important that it is to have casting calls to find the perfect actor to fit a specific role in whatever it may be that any filmmaker is creating for a project. i love DC comics and numerous amount of superheros and as a child i use to watch Wonder Women and i personally though it was intresting. it amazes me how after so many years a filmmaker can respark something that hasent really been an impact just as long as Wonder Women.
I have really learned through the year how important everything really is for everything due in film. if you do not like something and it dosent seem right then it is not. and i feel like that is the right example to use for casting someone because, especially in a TV series, i would want someone who is PERFECT for whatever the series is about and have the right attitude toward everything.
I do wonder if this will make or break the Waner bros. and CW industry or make it a whole lot better but i do hope it makes it a lot better due to the fact that i watch almost ever show on the CW

An MTV investor is concerned about a 31% prime time rating in comparison of the present year, and the previous of 2011. "But CEO Philippe Dauman assured analysts this morning that MTV is “not broken.”" in fact the CEO states that the channel is "highly successful", and “no concerns about MTV’s vitality going forward.” The CEO also stated that "Catfish" (the TV show) about online romance became ”the highest-rated launch in MTV history.” 

This illustrates the confidence level that MTV has, but mainly the CEO. I choose this article because honestly i was watching Jersey Shore, and an article on MTV came out so i saw no reason not to write about this. But what first caught my eye was the title of the article "MTV is not broken". this brought to my attention because when people think of MTV they think of really entertaining shows from "teens and young adults". and i just had curiosity on why they would even state a comment of MTV not being broken, but now we know why. 

This actually does not have an impact on me as a student because its irrelevant. However as a future filmmaker this makes me aware that one must always be on the very climax of his/hers game, and if not percentages will lower harshly and someone else WILL step up next.

Episode VII

Michael Arndt "The Oscar-winning Little Miss Sunshine screenwriter, who also penned Toy Story 3 and the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is in the line for working on the next Star Wars episode VII for next year, but not just one but for these 3 next Star Wars Movies. He was brought on bored by Lucasfilm to put together and bring ideas to take the franchise in a forward road.
Oscar-Winning Scribe Michael Arndt Penned Treatment For Next Three ‘Star Wars’ Fims; Will Work On ‘Episode VII’This is great for the franchise helping on one of the greatest movie franchise of all time. this really expands the franchises to almost an unlimited extent. This specific article brings up a lot of diffrent possibilities that may come fourth in the new movie. Arndt penned Toy Story 3 and for the most part a lot of people did not see that there would be a bit of a suprise/emotional twist in the end with the girl ending up with ALL of all grown up Andys toys. I find it funny because i have recently first watched the Star Wars films starting from the originally first ones. This is great because in my perspective i did not have to wait and wonder if there would be new or future movies and i actually will have the ability to know that there will be three more and i think its really great. 
As a consumer this is very exciting because for a well known fact this movie is going to get sold out through the nation very quickly and i really want to have the chance to go see the film in a movie theater just because its a lot better to be with friends rather than waiting for the film to come out on DVD. and this is really great for Disney because obviously new product will be created for people to buy and if the film is a success then they will bring a lot of dollar signs due to this film.
