The Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by

Kim Masters and John Horn, film writer for the Los Angeles Times, banter about some of this week's top Hollywood news stories. With the Spring comes a look at 2013's summer movies:

- First up G.I. Joe and why this film that was supposed to come out last year got pushed until now. Hint: It has to do with Channing Tatum's unexpected box office appeal and the fact that his character had been killed off.
- The Lone Ranger and World War Z are big financial bets for the studios, both of which had dramatic behind the scenes goings on that led to those films taking their time.
- Delloite's State of the Media Democracy Survey shows that less Americans are watching television traditionally and many people are streaming movies on their tablets. What does this mean for the future on the TV and movie business?
