Hollywood news banter: Fox guards its henhouse

Hosted by
  • Fox won a legal victory over Netflix in its lawsuit regarding executive poaching. A judge determined Netflix interfered with the workplace with the forced Fox executives to breach their contracts.
  • And while Netflix keeps saying their model is not about releasing films in theaters, auteur directors aren’t happy with that, and the streamer just hired a film distribution executive, inching Netflix ever closer to being like a traditional studio.
  • The final movie in the X-Men series as we’ve known it is out this weekend. After this film, the X-Men will be under the control of Marvel’s Kevin Feige at Disney.
