‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Premiere Delivers Men for CBS and Subscriber Prospects for CBS All Access
“Star Trek: Discovery” got off to a solid start for CBS on Sunday night with a multi-pronged assignment.
For CBS, the premiere of the much-anticipated addition to the “Star Trek” canon delivered a respectable crowd of 9.6 million viewers and a 1.9 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic.
For CBS All Access, the dawn of a new day for “Star Trek” broke the Svod service’s single-day record for new subscriber sign-ups, besting the mark set earlier this year by the Feb. 12 Grammy Awards telecast.
CBS would not disclose the total number of new subscribers but said that the past week also marked a record for new sign-ups, and not surprisingly the month of September is pacing to be a record. The real test for CBS Corp. is how many of those free-trial subscribers convert to paying customers down the road after the gratis month ends. Those numbers should be evident by early next year when the Eye reports »

San Sebastián: Brillante Mendoza Produces Daniel Palacio Debut ‘Underground’
San Sebastian — Brillante Mendoza, Cannes’ 2009 best director for “Kinatay,” will be premiering a new film at this year’s San Sebastian Film Festival – only this time he will be acting as executive producer. The Philippines most respected filmmaker, Mendoza and his company Center Stage Productions, are backing first-time feature director Daniel R. Palacio’s drama, “Underground.”
In the Philippines, cemeteries are built above-ground, where the graves are stacked on top of each other which form walls that create a labyrinth-like effect. Within those grim walls, the countries homeless often co-habit alongside their deceased counterparts inside unvisited mausoleums. It is in just such a setting that Palacio first was inspired to write the script for “Underground.”

Amy Jackson will play the latest hero headed to Earth. The role marks the U.S. debut of the Bollywood actress, who started her career as a model.

‘Stronger’: Jake Gyllenhaal’s Moving Performance as a Bombing Victim Could Finally Mean an Oscar
Just as Oscar voters rewarded Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, and many others for roles that demanded body-shifting training or weight change, they also lean into performers who limit their mobility or twist themselves under duress. Perhaps the most infamous example is Daniel Day Lewis’s shoot-long stint in a wheelchair as cerebral palsy victim Christy Brown in “My Left Foot,” which earned Lewis his first Oscar and cost him two broken ribs.
Eddie Redmayne could barely articulate his dialogue as Als survivor Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything,” and took home the 2015 Oscar. Mental hardship counts, too: Tom Hanks won as a mentally disabled hero in “Forrest Gump” and Julianne Moore won as an early-onset Alzheimer’s victim in “Still Alice.”
