Welcome back for a brand new episode of our flagship show, Collider Movie Talk! Today Perri Nemiroff is joined by John Rocha and Jeff Sneider to talk about some of the hottest movie news stories of the day.
The first topic on today’s line-up is a Hollywood Reporter/Morning Consult poll that’s making the rounds right now. According to that poll, which involved 2,201 adults and was conducted from May 2 to 5, 22% said they’d cancel Netflix if Marvel Studios movies were removed from the service. If Star Wars movies were taken off the platform, 20% said they’d cancel their subscriptions. And according to the report, “In a scenario where Friends, The Office and all Marvel Studios and Star Wars films left the service, 32 percent of Americans said they’d cancel Netflix, while 57 percent said they’d keep it and 11 percent had no opinion.” That’s a significant amount of users right there but how much stock should we be putting in this data to begin with? Perri, John and Jeff address that on today’s show!
In addition, they also dig into James Gunn‘s comments on his firing and rehiring on Guardians of the Galaxy 3. He likened the situation to his divorce stating, “There were some problems, and we just weren’t supposed to be married, but it was well worth living that six years with my ex. I wanted to feel that way about Disney.” On top of that, Gunn also dropped a little hint about the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 story while discussing the most upsetting creative component he almost didn’t get the chance to complete. Gunn highlighted his attachment to Rocket and his specific journey throughout the films, from the first Guardians movie to Avengers: Endgame and beyond. Gunn said, “That was a big loss to me—not being able to finish that story—though I was comforted by the fact that they were still planning to use my script.” You can catch the panelists thoughts on those comments in the video at the top of this article!
