Lin-Manuel Miranda Tries to Save ‘One Day at a Time’ Like He Helped Do With ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’

Lin-Manuel Miranda Tries to Save ‘One Day at a Time’ Like He Helped Do With ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’
Lin-Manuel Miranda is swooping in to try and save recently canceled Netflix series “One Day at a Time,” just like he helped to do when “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was canceled by Fox.

The rebooted sitcom was canceled Thursday after three seasons on Netflix, followed by an outpouring of support that resulted in the hashtag #saveODAAT becoming the number one worldwide trend on Twitter in an hour.

Echoing the last-minute save that found “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” a new home on NBC for a sixth season, the “Mary Poppins Returns” star tweeted at the network hoping to inspire some conversations about the fan-beloved “One Day at a Time.”

“Hey @nbc…I hear you like comedies with built-in fan bases that do even better on Your network than at their previous homes,” Miranda tweeted in response to creators and showrunners Mike Royce and Gloria Calderon Kellett’s statement on the cancellation.

Oscar Nominees Beale Street and Vice Lost Annapurna a Ton of Money

If Beale Street Could Talk and Vice were critical sensations for Annapurna. However, neither of them were able to make a profit and ended up losing a lot of money in the process. The studio released the aforementioned movies on Christmas day along with Karyn Kusama's Destroyer, which in hindsight, probably wasn't the best idea since the box office was already crowded with some larger name movies like Aquaman, Bumblebee, and Mary Poppins Returns from bigger studios.

It has been revealed by sources that If Beale Street Could Talk lost anywhere between $8 million and $10 million, despite taking top honors at the Indie Spirit Awards and the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Regina King. The movie was a critical smash, but it had trouble at the box office, which was more than likely due to poor marketing. Whatever the case may be, Beale Street wasn't the only movie that Annapurna

Dumbo Remake Early Reactions: Did Tim Burton Make This Elephant Fly?

Dumbo Remake Early Reactions: Did Tim Burton Make This Elephant Fly?
The first reactions to Tim Burton's live-action Dumbo have arrived. Disney has been revisiting some of their animated classics for a new generation and next up is the tale of an elephant with giant ears that can fly. Originally released in 1941, the animated movie is a staple of the classic Disney era and, in that way, Burton is walking on uncertain ground. So how did he do?

According to the early reactions coming out of the premiere, this is a mostly solid remake. Dumbo is, by most accounts, Tim Burton at his best. The director has had a somewhat unfortunate string in recent years but many of those who witnessed the movie so far say that this is right up his alley and it's clear he was the right man for the job. Writer Courtney Howard had nothing but kind things to say in her brief reaction.

Disney’s ‘Aladdin’ Trailer Spotlights Will Smith’s Genie
You ain’t never had a friend like Will Smith’s Genie.

That is, unless you have a pal who can turn you into a prince. In the first full-length trailer for Disney’s “Aladdin,” Mena Massoud’s street urchin uses one of his three wishes from the Genie’s magic lamp to become royalty.

Before granting his request, Smith’s Genie tells Aladdin to be more specific. “There’s a lot of gray area in ‘Make me a prince,'” Genie jokes.

Later in the clip, Genie tells Aladdin, “You look like a prince on the outside, but I didn’t change anything on the inside.”

Directed by Guy Ritchie, the studio’s live-action remake of “Aladdin” is based on the 1992 animated classic. The upcoming pic stars Smith as the Genie, Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, and Marwan Kenzari as the evil Jafar.

‘Dumbo’ First Reactions: Tim Burton’s Latest Is ‘Visually Mind-Blowing’ and His Best In Years

‘Dumbo’ First Reactions: Tim Burton’s Latest Is ‘Visually Mind-Blowing’ and His Best In Years
The first reactions for Tim Burton’s live-action “Dumbo” rolled in following the film’s March 11 world premiere in Los Angeles, and so far so good. The release is Burton’s first tentpole after a string of critical and commercial disappointments, including “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” and “Dark Shadows.” Fortunately, buzz on “Dumbo” is already much stronger than Burton’s more recent films, with numerous critics and film journalists calling “Dumbo” by far Burton’s best live-action effort in years.

“It’s a beautiful and whimsical movie, starring a CGI elephant with so much heart,” writes Gamespot entertainment editor Chris Hayner. “It’s also a rather simple tale, so don’t expect tons of character depth. But I still had a blast with the ride it took me on and it’s the best Burton’s been in years.”

The series, which ran on ITV predecessor Thames Television between 1978 and 1992, starred Leo McKern as Horace Rumpole, an elderly barrister in London who defended a weird and wonderful mix of clients. It started as a radio play on the BBC before making the move to television.

The reboot was revealed at a Deadline-moderated Banff Connect event in London by Polly Williams, eOne’s head of scripted development in the UK. The Designated Survivor studio has a first-look deal with Mortimer’s company, which she runs with her husband Alessandro Nivola.

Warner Bros. is officially moving forward with a sequel to Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow.” A follow-up to the Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt-starring time travel action movie has been talked about by fans and the creative team since the film’s release in summer 2014, and now it appears the sequel is finally taking shape at Warner Bros.

Here’s Why Oscar Ratings Improved, and Why There’s Still a Long Way to Go

ABC’s Oscars telecast Sunday night showed significant growth: Sunday’s 91st Academy Awards drew a preliminary average audience of 29.6 million viewers, an 11.5 percent increase from 2018. In the coveted 18-49 adult demo, the broadcast scored a 7.7 rating, which was a 13 percent gain. In metered market households, the Oscars drew a 20.6 rating, up approximately 6 percent from last year.

Good news, but not exactly great. While the show is TV’s most-watched entertainment telecast in two years — No. 3 behind last year’s “This Is Us” post-Super Bowl episode and ABC’s infamous 2017 Oscars — it’s still the second-worst Oscar ratings in its history.

It wasn’t that difficult to increase viewership since 2018’s show hit an all-time low, drawing 26.54 million viewers and a 6.8 rating in the 18-49 demo. There’s nowhere to go but up.
