Global Showbiz Watch ep 35In this week’s podcast, Deadline International Editor Nancy Tartaglione and host David Bloom run through all the many announcements for different segments of the Cannes Film Festival the past week, from the main competition to Critics Week to the Directors Fortnight. The big news: lots of female directors, lots of Canadians. David and Nancy also update what happened to that rumored sale of the UK’s Channel 5 and Malta’s efforts to boost its attractiveness as a filming location in the middle of the Mediterranean with better tax incentives. They wrap up with their weekly peek at news and trends in the international box office, as the Amazing Spider-Man 2 began to spin its web, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Rio 2 and Noah all passed major milestones.
