Hello everybody, I’m Katelyn Haynes of the Actors Reporter and welcome to the TradeVine. It’s a beautiful sunny, Hollywood California July day. Danika Quinn is on set today so she’s asked me to share with you some of the entertainment articles this week you may have missed. Our goal here at the TradeVine is to help you stay informed and to keep up with the trades, such as The Hollywood Reporter, Daily Variety, and Backstage.

 

Back Stage National Edition, July 8th-14th, 2010. “More Than Just a Number…IMDb brouhaha brings ageism issues to the surface,” by Simi Horwitz. The issue of ageism in the entertainment industry has once again surfaced, this time in connection with the Internet Movie Database’s practice of publishing the birthdates of actors and writers. The Writers Guild of America West is spearheading an effort to compel IMDb to allow artists to remove their birthdays from the site.

 

The Screen Actors Guild has also attempted to get IMDb to remove the birthdates of non-stars. IMDb takes the position that it is a news source and is entitled to publish information that is already in the public domain. The controversy raises a number of issues from the power and accuracy of websites to the relevance of age in our culture in general and the entertainment industry in particular.

 

The Hollywood Reporter, International Weekend Edition, July 9th- 11th, 2010. “Fox brings ‘Avatar’ back for—and with—more,” by Gregg Kilday and Carl DiOrio. Once more, with eight additional minutes. An even longer version of James Cameron’s 3D adventure ‘Avatar’ will return to theatres worldwide August 27th. This will be a 170-minute version, which will feature eight new minutes of footage. Cameron said the eight minuets of new scenes will feature more of Pandora, and new creatures and action scenes. It will be interesting to see how the public reacts to those new eight minuets.

 

Daily Variety, Tuesday July 13th, 2010. “Google gaga for gaming,” by Chris Morris. Google, which has been a looming threat in the gaming world, appears to be edging closer to becoming a major player in online games. To help launch Google Games, which is expected later this year, Google has invested at least $100 million in social gaming company Zynga, spelled Z Y N G A, the developer of some of the biggest games on Facebook, including “FarmVille” and “Mafia Wars.”

 

Well, that’s it for the TradeVine this week. I’m Katelyn Haynes. You heard it through the Tradevine!
