I chopped my hair off pretty short right after David and I did “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” And I had been doing two or three movies at the same time, during the ‘Dragon Tattoo’ period – so I’d do a week on ‘Dragon Tattoo’ and it’d be completely bleached and then I’d do two days on this other movie and I had to go a little bit darker and then back to blonde… This is boring shit to you, but it was hair hell. So I said, “We’ve got to chop it off and start over.” It was pretty much grown out by the time we started the show, so it was short-short.

"And as is becoming Netflix’s metier, the show’s not going to be going out piecemeal: the series will be released in one big chunk, with all 13 episodes available to view from day one.

In case no one hears from me the first week of February next year.

As of now, a (somewhat bland) look at the Video Streaming game and its stats. I’m keeping my money on Netflix, but you have to consider that Amazon is just getting into the game and Redbox (who is not featured) is about to jump in any day now.

Netflix Streaming: The Way Of The Future

With the recent announcement of the Star Wars series coming to Blu-Ray, I recently got into a discussion regarding the disc format versus streaming. I didn’t realize how real things were gonna get so quickly, as it seems Netflix  made a huge move last week:

That seems to be the popular consensus, anyway, since it was revealed last week that Netflix will pay almost $1 billion to Epix over five years for online-streaming rights for movies from Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM.

Before that, online streaming might have been considered more a necessary annoyance than an actual business with revenue and profit. But with the stroke of a pen, Netflix has upped the ante so significantly that movie studios have no doubt begun to ratchet up expectations for licensing fees they can charge going forward.

"It certainly proves that on-demand streaming rights have value," said Jim Packer, co-president of MGM Worldwide Television.

"We’re the only ones that have put real money in play," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said.

In fact, Netflix probably paid more money for digital rights than traditional pay TV has been willing to pay for television rights in recent years. That’s a sea change.

You should definitely check out the entire article, as it contains more on the effects of this deal, including what this means for pay cable networks (Showtime, HBO), Studios, and how Netflix will most assuredly pass their spending onto their customers (natch).
