In this week’s podcast, Deadline International Editor Nancy Tartaglione and host David Bloom run through still more news out of Cannes, as the film festival officially selects more official selections, fills out its competition jury and adds Sophia Loren and restored films from Hitchcock, De Sica and other greats to its Classics section. Nancy and David also discuss China’s mysterious crackdown on the online streaming of The Good Wife and three other U.S. shows even as China and the UK signs a long-in-coming co-production treaty, and also look at new distribution methods that are bringing the final Monty Python performance and indie vet Jeff Lipsky’s newest projects to screens around the world.
They also take their weekly peek at news and trends in the international box office, as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had a strong week but couldn’t spin its web to No. 1 everywhere, as local favorites and surprising challengers have had their own very good runs.
