Irgendwo auf der Welt platzen Friedensverhandlungen zwischen Ländern, deren Namen kein Mensch aussprechen kann, doch für wichtiger halten die neuen Studiobosse bei Amerikas bedeutendstem Nachrichtensender Onion News eine Schleichwerbekampagne für den neuen Seagal-Actionfilm ´Schwanzboxer´. Ein Grund für den Senior-Anchorman, zu protestieren. Andere akute Breaking News: Popsternchen Melissa Cherry ist keine Schlampe, und ein verdächtig blasser Schwarzer wurde wegen Ruhestörung verhaftet.
Das seriöse TV-Nachrichtenmagazin Onion News mit Frontmann Norm Archer (Len Cariou) berichtet über das Weltgeschehen: Hier erfährt man, wie Terroristen wirklich ausgebildet werden, warum Computer-Milliardär Gil Bates umgebracht werden sollte und dass die Regierung mit Hasch und Pornopostern neue Rekruten ködert. Peinliche Promis und weitere schwere Einzelschicksale werden auch präsentiert, während hinter den Kulissen der Krieg tobt. Norm Archer ist genervt von den Werbespots, die zwischen den Nachrichten eingespielt werden und sucht mit einem starken Partner (Steven Seagal) nach der ultimativen Lösung. Schrill, schonungslos, voll pervers und politisch völlig irre.
Inspired by the very newspapers seen in the Fantastic Beasts films, and produced on newsprint paper to mimic their appearance, Movie-Making News reveals previously untold behind-the-scenes stories from the first film and offers a sneak-peek at what´s to come in the exciting next instalment.
The No.1 New York Times Bestseller - Now a Major Motion Picture from Paramount Pictures: From the author of The Blind Side and Moneyball, The Big Short tells the story of four outsiders in the world of high-finance who predict the credit and housing bubble collapse before anyone else. The film adaptation by Adam McKay (Anchorman I and II, The Other Guys) features Academy Award winners Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei; Academy Award nominees Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling. When the crash of the U.S. stock market became public knowledge in the fall of 2008, it was already old news. The real crash, the silent crash, had taken place over the previous year, in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn´t shine and the SEC doesn´t dare, or bother, to tread. Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? In this fitting sequel to Liar´s Poker, Michael Lewis answers that question in a narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor.
This week, the News of the World scandal unfolded like a high-stakes political thriller — Kurt Andersen talks with a television executive about just how closely reality resembles fiction.
